[i]What is new is that not only one watch – the Speedmaster - survived Jim Ragan’s test, but also that the astronauts unanimously preferred Speedmaster in their own evaluation. Why did the astronauts choose Speedmaster? Only thing mentioned in the letter from Mr Ragan to Mr Slayton about why the astronauts preferred Speedmaster is that they say it was easiest to operate, but the exact details of the astronauts’ own evaluation are not yet fully known. [b]The astronaut explicitly said it was easy to operate with the gloves on.[/b] The one tested was 105.003, without the crown guard.[/i]
[i]I know we had the watches on all the time, but I don't ever remember starting or stopping them. Because they're the world's hardest thing to start or stop with your glove on.[/i]
