Apollo 15 commander's lunar timepiece goes under the hammer

Turtle

Joystick.

"Given that the 'attitude controller assembly' used by Scott to land the Apollo 15 Falcon lunar module sold for a cool $610,000 in May last year, RR Auction is reasonably predicting the Bulova could hit $1m."

I don't understand that at all. I'd think that the Apollo 15 joystick - an actual piece of space hardware that landed an lunar module on the moon - would be a much more historic, and so more valuable, item.

Doe the fact that the Speedmaster is wearable increase its value all *that* much? Dunno.
