Dunhill News 2009 Moon Landing Pipe

THE MOON LANDING PIPES

THE LANDING ON THE MOON

After early Soviet successes in conquering space, the US leadership looked for a project that would capture the world’s imagination and overtake the Soviet Union as the leading space nation.

On July 16, 1969 the Apollo 11 mission started. A Saturn V rocket took of from the Kennedy Space centre in Houston for what would become an epic 8-day journey covering the 238,855 miles to the moon and back. On board were Neil Armstrong, the commander of the mission, Michael Collins, the pilot of the command and service module ‘Columbia’, and Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin, pilot of the lunar module ‘Eagle’.

On July 19 the ‘Eagle’ entered the moon’s orbit and touched surface on July 20 at 4:17 pm EDT. The ‘Eagle’ had landed.

The whole world watched in amazement on their black & white television sets as at 10:56pm Neil Armstrong descended the ladder of the ‘Eagle’ announcing “That’s one small step for (a) man, a giant leap for mankind” and making the first steps of man on the surface of the moon.

On July 21 the ‘Eagle’ took off and re-docked with the ‘Columbia’ module and on July 24, the command module re-entered earth’s orbit and landed safely in the Pacific Ocean.

Mankind’s greatest adventure had come to a successful end.

THE LIMITED EDITION
MOON LANDING PIPES

These two limited editions have been specifically created and manufactured to celebrate the
40th anniversary of man’s first landing on the moon.

The Moon Landing pipes are classic Shell Briar Billiards in group 5 size. Both editions have been mounted with hand-chased precious metal rim mounts to represent one of the many moon craters and are engraved with Neil Armstrong’s famous words “That’s one small step for man, a giant leap for mankind”.

Further, the pipes are equipped with 10mm wide precious metal bands, their engraving indicating the starting date of the moon landing mission. Each pipe is accompanied by a pipe tamper in the shape of the Saturn V rocket hand-turned from white Erinoid material and equipped with a chromed metal or 18ct Gold foot.

The highly collectable Moon Landing pipes and tampers are presented in a prestigious leather-bound book. The structured, grey leather simulates of the moon surface and a relief-embossed scene depicts Neil Armstrong’s descent from the ‘Eagle’.

Each set is accompanied by its numbered and hand-signed limited edition certificate.

The first Moon Landing edition is limited to only forty (40) pipes with Sterling Silver decorations, while the second edition is strictly limited to only one (1) pipe world-wide with 18ct Gold adornments.

The tamper of the gold version is further set with a natural, untreated 0.77ct Sapphire cabochon of beautiful cornflower blue colour.

World-wide launch December 2009.
