    Speedmaster MoonSwatch. I can also see Omega logo on dial and Swatch logo on strap, but don't know if it's same or two different watches. Anyway some captures from this short YT video.

    Also on the caseback I can see "four (4) jewels" so definietly quartz.

    Anyone care to guess a price? I’m speculating ‘tree fiddy zero’…

    Hopeful then! The Speedmaster is a beautiful base design.

    I really hate the bottom subdial on that watch... The planet with rings just looks cheap/tacky on the dial.

    The whole point of a Swatch watch is knowingly cheap and tacky though?

    tacky is subjective, cheap is if you feel the asking price is not in alignment with the value.

    I’ll add that Saturday (26th) is typically a down day on the ISS allowing for time for a reveal.

    Also, the all Russian crew alleviates a conflict of interest with a NASA astronaut appearing to be participating in an advertising campaign. The Russians are a bit more accommodating and always looking for ways to monetize their program.

    I think they prefer the terms "budget friendly" and "eye catching" ;)

    Seems slightly odd/ill-timed to have Russians promoting anything right now.

    Definitely not a 3861 - the minute counter sub-dial is where the hour counter would be on a 321/861/1861/3861...

    Than €2500 on fleebay after the 27th.
    My guess is that the big box will contain one real Speedmaster and the rest will be Moonwatch wannabe Swatches. And the Swatches will also be available separately.

    Any collaboration with a reveal by cosmonauts would have been planned long before the current situation. Many are inclined to believe that cooperation on the ISS is above the fray of current world events.

    If nothing else, I’ll stand by my prediction they are wearing the new collaborative watch.

    They tell you right on the case back who the movement maker is...people probably don't recognize the logo as easily as a watchmaker would I guess...I see it on tech guides all the time...

    The ETA symbol definitely a giveaway that it’s not a 3861 etc. - thanks for the clarification.

    I didn’t know whether “Swatch’s” 4-jewel quartz chrono was an ETA movement but ok second glance:

    The suggestion of a possible 3861 movement was almost in the same league as the smartwatch thread:whistling:, still miles away though.:D
