Watch collecting is mostly about timepieces themselves, but surrounding these objects with a whole host of other items that are part and parcel of the same world is inescapable.
Jeweler's loupes to examine said timepieces, valet trays to hold one’s “pocket litter” (to use an old bit of espionage lingo), lighters to light up that occasional Cuban cigar…we love accessories, and our offices are littered with them. However, we couldn’t possibly keep all these objects to ourselves, which is why we’re offering some of the coolest vintage finds right here, just in time for holiday gifting — whether to a loved one, or to yourself!
If you geek out about absolutely anything related to space exploration, then this deserves your attention. This yellow gold plated tie clip features a sculpted likeness of American Astronaut Ed White during his famous first-ever American space walk that took place on June 3rd, 1965. This momentous feat lasted only about 20 minutes, at the closure of which he radioed, "I'm coming back in... and it's the saddest moment of my life."
This tie clip pays tribute to this great moment in history. Measuring approximately 1 1/4“, it uses a pinch clip mechanism to keep Mr. White on your person, whether that’s clipped to a tie, lapel, or onto a bag. Whichever way you wear it, your enthusiasm for space will be on full display!
