Casio Men's Analogue-Digital Quartz Watch with Plastic Strap GA-2200M-4AER
About this deal
First introduced in 1988 in the wake of the space shuttle Challenger tragedy, NASA's Launch Entry Suit (LES) featured an international orange-color outer layer in case the wearer had to bail out into the ocean. The bright color was meant to help rescue teams locate crew members in the water. Affectionately known as the "pumpkin suit," the LES was replaced in 1994 by the similarly-colored Advanced Crew Escape Suit (ACES), which was used through the end of the space shuttle program. Now, the ACES has evolved into the Orion Crew Survival System (OCSS). Still bright orange, the new pressure suit will be worn by astronauts while launching and returning to Earth aboard NASA's Orion spacecraft on Artemis moon missions.

The inset dial indicator, inspired by an automotive brake disc, is enclosed in a semi-circular ring, both of which are treated in a vapor deposition finish for the metallic look of serious outdoor gear.Among the technology incorporated into the watch is a solar panel ("Tough Solar") that converts not only sunlight, but light from weak sources such as fluorescent lamps, into power, and Casio's "Multi-Band 6" atomic timekeeping, which provides automatic time correction through terrestrial radio wave reception.
