Apollo 13 Flown Watch

With the collectibles media focus on the high prices paid for watches flown to the moon on Apollo missions, we would like to mention that we sold just an Apollo 13 flown watch strap for almost $14,000.  The strap came from the Jack Swigert estate, and the watch strap was the top watch item, as the estate did not have Jack Swigert’s watch.  Here is the description, picture and price realized:

Apollo 13 Flown Instrument Cover & Omega Velcro Watch Strap From Jack Swigert’s Estate

Lot of two items from Jack Swigert’s estate. First item is an Apollo 13 flown instrument cover, measuring 1.75″ in diameter, made of a stainless steel disc with an articulated ring at center. Above and below the ring are codes printed in black that read, ”P/NSEB33100063-301 / S/N1017 ASSY.” A small square of velcro is affixed to verso at center, certainly to secure cover in place in the weightless environment of space. Lot also includes Swigert’s NASA issued Omega velcro watch strap, worn by Swigert over his space suit, and likely space flown. Velcro strap with metal fastener is imprinted with code numbers ”P/N SEB12100030-202 / S/N 1067”. Measures 22” in length. Some dulling and superficial marks to lid and soiling to velcro strap. A rare Apollo 13 flown watch strap.  Near fine overall. With an LOA from the estate of Jack Swigert.  Sold for $13,920.
