The John Glenn - Heuer Stopwatch

 

 

 


John Glen Heuer Stopwatch Space During a summer 2006 trip to the Space and Flight Museum in San Diego, I discovered this stopwatch that has long been buried at the Smithsonian Institution. This watch was on display as part of a traveling Smithsonian exhibit. I took a picture of the watch using my Treo mobilephone camera and posted the picture on two Internet watch boards. Jeff Stein, a Tag-Heuer collector stumbled across the posting and the rest is Tag-Heuer history shown below.
