Tag-Hauer has announced the release of a new space-themed watch, based on the design of the Hauer stopwatch that John Glenn wore on his MA-6 flight.

In addition to the link to that flight, they have also decided to join up with SpaceX in marketing the timepiece. The front dial has a small Dragon spacecraft image, and the sapphire display caseback features a larger graphic of the same image and the SpaceX company logo.

An interesting combination of space themes, but I think collectors should be cautioned that Glenn's timer was not, in fact a wristwatch. Retail price is set at $5800 USD.

More photos can be found here.

At least it looks like a watch, contrary to other high-end watches produced in this country.
