Halda Space Discovery

The Halda Space Discovery is a limited edition timepiece that is based on Halda’s interchangeable concept. The concept is built on Halda’s unique patented platform which allows for interchangeable modules – allowing the wearer to instantly and effortlessly swap between the digital and mechanical modules which are included in the Space Discovery set.

The Space Discovery set features one digital module which has been developed and manufactured in-house in Halda’s factory just outside of Stockholm, Sweden. The digital module offers an array of functions that are helpful both in space and on earth, and the watch is Halda’s first release since the brand’s relaunch, after having been founded in 1887.

The Space Discovery set comes with a mechanical automatic module, featuring a NOS (New old stock movement) which has been renovated and modernized by Mr. Svend Andersen. The mechanical module beats at 5hz, unlike most mechanical movements which beat at 4hz. This allows the movement to become more accurate. The new old stock movement has been modernized and improved by the skilled watchmaker Svend Andersen – a recognized and praised watchmaker in the watch industry.

The Space Module has been developed in close cooperation with and tested by astronauts on the Discovery mission STS-128, and has proven to be truly helpful for astronauts in space, as well as being highly durable.

The Halda Space Discovery is a limited and numbered edition of 128 pieces. Only a few watches of the limited edition are available, and each set is delivered in a handmade wooden case with two time modules and a platform.

The watch also comes with a durable and solid steel bracelet, a velcro fastened flight strap and a travel case in genuine leather.

  • Stainless steel wristband
