The spaceman is a super cool/ weird watch. Sadly they are choc full of aftermarket parts almost as often as the Pogues. Or just knock offs.
I really like it!

Yeah, there are a whole raft of far eastern repros produced; there are some tell tales and the guy who really knows his stuff was on WUS (I think he's gone now) as kojikabuto - (8) 70's Fortis Spaceman | Page 2 | WatchUSeek Watch Forums

Yeah, it's freaky deaky, man!

It makes the pages of one of the best snort-your-coffee-laughing watch books I've seen:
Retro Watches: The Modern Collector's Guide: Amazon.co.uk: Josh Sims, Mitch Greenblatt: 9780500022962: Books

There are some extremely weird looking things in there. How about a 60mm bullhead chrono that protrudes from under your cuff...

The president of Fiat (Gianni Agnelli) wore such watches, even put them on the cuff of his shirt ...
