What was significant about Neil Armstrong’s watch?
Thank you

Armstrong is often credited as the first person to wear a wristwatch on the moon, however, according to AllExperts, “although the Omega SpeedMaster was the first wristwatch to be worn on Moon, it was not Armstrong who wore it; the digital clock on the Lunar Module had malfunctioned, so he left his watch on the module to tell time. It was Buzz Aldrin who made the Omega SpeedMaster the first watch on Moon.”
