Lot Details
FLOWN APOLLO 13 WRIST WATCH STRAP.
Wrist watch strap, 22 inches long, ¾ inch wide. With 18 inches of Velcro loop and 3 inches of Velcro hook material on one side. A rectangular metal loop is at one end, and a dark green nylon identification tag at the other, read: "P/N SEB 12100030-202, S/N 1074."

This long strap allowed the Omega watch worn by Fred Haise during Apollo 13 to fit around the large left wrist of his Apollo space suit.

While wearing my IVA coveralls, I wrapped this strap several times around my arm before fastening the velcro closure." The Omega Speedmaster Chronograph itself is in the Smithsonian NASM.
