    Worn on Man's Last Ever "Deep Space" E.V.A.

    Apollo 17 Command Module Flown Omega Speedmaster Watch Strap Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Ron Evans. A 21.5" long x 0.75" wide black cloth strap, partially covered with Velcro, with a metal slip-through at one end, marked "P/N SEB 12100030-202" and "S/N 1087". This was used to attach Evans' Omega chronograph to his space suit. During the trip home from the moon, Evans performed a one-hour+ space walk, the last ever in deep space, to retrieve film canisters from the Scientific Instrument Module (SIM) Bay on the service module. There is a photo of him with this strap around his left arm; a print is included with the lot. At one point in his EVA he even mentions that he wore his watch (on this strap) and forgot to engage the stopwatch feature:

    CMP-EVA (Ron Evans): Let me see. Hey, I got to make sure I get this on the right handle here, don't I? Gee, that's why I wore my watch, and I forgot to start it. (Laughter) Okay. About 40 minutes, huh?
    CapCom: We've got you 35 minutes - 36 minutes, Ron.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Jan Evans (Mrs. Ron Evans) stating: "I certify that the watchstrap offered with this letter, marked as P/N SEB 12100030-202 and serial number 1087 was flown to the moon on board the Apollo 17 spacecraft, December 1972. This watchstrap was worn with a Speedmaster by my husband Ron Evans during his EVA on December 17, 1972. It has been with our family since the flight."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
