The Last Man on the Moon and What He Left Behind

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Capt. Andrew “Gene” Cernan, an American naval officer, fighter pilot and early astronaut who was the last man to set foot on the moon. One of the most important figures in the history of the Omega Speedmaster “Moon Watch”. He died at the age of 82 on Monday. Cernan traveled into space three times. Once as Pilot of Gemini 9A in June 1966. Another as Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo 10 in May 1969. Lastly, as Commander of Apollo 17 in December 1972, the final Apollo lunar landing. He wore the same Omega on all three missions. He then noted that the watch continued to function flawlessly despite the rigorous missions.
