    Exploring space is no walk in the park and the same can be said about having a dependable watch that can withstand the rough conditions found outside of our planet Earth. Taking on the challenge, Seiko successfully built their Spring Drive Spacewalk watch, which is the first timepiece specifically designed for outer space use. Tried and tested by private space adventurer Richard Garriott and a Russian cosmonaut, who actually took it on a 5 hour and 38 minute spacewalk, the watch is now receiving a commemorative limited edition release of 100 pieces. Seiko’s Spring Drive Spacewalk watch is available at select Seiko retail outlets and once the ($28,000) price tag is satisfied, you can be among the few who keeps time like a spacewalking astronaut.
