Timex has bridged the divide between sea and space with its latest tribute to the U.S. space program.

The American watch company has debuted a new timepiece that features NASA's retired logotype.

Watch - NASA - Logo - Land - Sea

"We took our vintage-inspired diver-style watch and paired it with the iconic NASA logo. By land, sea or even space, this watch is the perfect companion for wherever your adventures take you," described Timex on its website.

The new Timex x NASA Navi watch has a stainless case, white dial, blue fabric strap and is emblazoned with the space agency's legacy logo — affectionately referred to as the "worm" — in red. Timex issued the $129 watch in celebration of this year's 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

Curiosity - Space - Desire - Something - Summer

"Curiosity for space and a desire to understand something greater — the summer of 1969 marked a milestone with the Apollo 11 lunar landing. A bold move that changed history, we're celebrating the 50th anniversary [of] this historical event that shaped American history," the watchmaker wrote.
