1971 Apollo 15 Commander David Scott at the news conference in Houston TX – USA. Note the blood underneath Scott’s damaged fingernails due to operating the heavy core drill on the Lunar Surface. Double  deep-drill core tube,  were driven as deep as 68 cm by application of extra hammer blows. Obviously David Scott wore his Gold Apollo tribute Omega Speedmaster 145.022 chronograph #16 awarded in November 1969 for his Gemini VIII and Apollo 9 achievements.
