A timepiece that Elon Musk would definitely try to get his hands on…

As our species attempts to colonize Mars in the coming decades, the NASA X Interstellar RED3.721 watch puts a small slice of the red planet on your wrist. Designed by Interstellar with a thumbs up from NASA, the RED3.721 watch honors humanity’s mission to Mars, the RED3.721 is the perfect tribute to our heavenly neighbor.

We’ve seen our share of space-inspired watches that pay tribute to planets, NASA missions, and human achievements in astronomical discoveries… but none of them quite match how stunningly beautiful the RED3.721 watch is. The watch is a celebration of Mars and our efforts to explore it. The watch describes the Perseverance rover’s journey from Earth to Mars. Engraved on the watch’s frame is the date “February 18, 2021,” marking the day the Perseverance rover touched the surface of Mars. The rover landed on a 28-mile-wide crater called Jezero, whose coordinates are also etched onto the frame. Flip the watch on its back and the back comes with illustrations of the rover’s parachute, along with the coded message that reads “Dare Mighty Things”. Even the name RED3.721 pays tribute to the red planet, while the number “3.721” corresponds to the planet’s gravity observed during the NASA mission.

Number “3.721” – Corresponds to the planet’s gravity observed during NASA mission.

The Red Planet – The dial shows the pattern and features of Mars.

“7 Minutes of Terror” – Entering, descending and landing is recognized as the shortest and most intense phase of the Mars 2020 mission.

The original NASA logo “Meatball” – This collection was awarded by NASA.

To make the face of the watch shine, the folks at Interstellar opted for a fairly simple, smooth watch case made from a choice of 316L stainless steel or titanium, colored black to represent the infinite blackness of space while simultaneously evoking the red planet. make them stand out (there are even silver, gold and copper variants). The watch face comes with a 3D relief pattern of the Martian landscape created using actual planetary data, along with a glowing binary code around the dial, which reads the date of the mission and records the ‘7 minutes of terror’ , a phrase that describes the 7 minutes between the Perseverance entering the Martian atmosphere and landing safely in the Jezero crater.

Authentic Martian Meteorite – The dust is collected from a meteorite that traveled millions of miles before eventually crashing to Earth.

The most impressive detail of the RED3.721 is of course the relic that sits at the 3 o’clock position. Interstellar offers the choice between having the NASA ‘meatball’ logo engraved on the 3 o’clock window or including a capsule containing real meteor dust. The dust comes from a Mars meteorite discovered in northwest Africa in 2021, provided by MSG Meteorites. Each watch variant with the meteorite dust is even accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

The RED3.721 watch offers two different movements: a Miyota 8215 automatic movement (in combination with the 316L case) and a Sellita SW200-1 (encased in the titanium case). Watch enthusiasts can pair their timepiece with a leather strap or a metal strap (steel or titanium, depending on the case material), and both the Sellita and Miyota variants offer the choice of upgrading your watch to the Mars Dust. edition with the meteorite particles encased in the watch. Each watch is water resistant to 10 ATM (100 meters) and comes with a sapphire crystal on top, which protects your watch from scratches and normal wear and tear. The RED3,721 starts at $398 for the NASA-branded Miyota, or $497 to upgrade to the Mars Dust edition. The Sellita variant encased in titanium (with the Mars Dust) starts at $896. The timepieces will ship in November 2022 and come with a 2-year warranty.
