Auction of the Revo Moonwalker Zero G #001 Supports the Conrad Foundation

By

NEW YORK—Revo reported it successfully auctioned the serial number 001 piece of the sold-out Moonwalker Zero G limited edition sunglass. With a strong showing and a sale above the original estimate, the Moonwalker Zero G #001 sold for $1,650 with all auction proceeds from global bidding benefitting the Conrad Foundation. The auction was timed to the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 12th mission, captained by the original Revo Ambassador, Astronaut Pete Conrad and ended on November 24 at 3:58 PM (EST) to correspond with the mission’s blast off and return to earth, the company noted.

The Moonwalker Zero G is a re-creation of Conrad's original sunglasses reimagined for the present day in premium materials, including super lightweight titanium, a two-tone chrome finish, dual color handmade acetate temples and shatterproof Serilium+ lenses. Only 500 individually numbered pieces were produced in total and the collection fully sold out within weeks with a price tag of $499.

“We were blown away by the enthusiasm shown for the Moonwalker Zero G auction. It has been exciting to see the success of the limited-edition frame—from selling out at retail to going beyond expectations at auction with the 001 edition. We’re thrilled to have the proceeds support a cause that were near to Pete Conrad’s heart,” said Cliff Robinson, CEO of Revo.The company celebrated the mission with the limited editio launch and campaign earlier this year, as VMAIL reported.

Revo will donate all of the auction proceeds to the Conrad Foundation, created to honor the legacy of Captain Pete Conrad, and his passion for innovation and entrepreneurship. It is the only organization of its kind whose programs combine science and technology-based education, innovation and entrepreneurship to inspire solutions for achieving global sustainability.


Revo was also an official sponsor of the Apollo 50th Gala event that took place on July 16 at the Apollo Saturn V Center in the Kennedy Space Center. The event commemorated the historic launch of Apollo 11, exactly 50 years to the day of liftoff.

The Moonwalker Zero G was sold at finer optical shops and specialty boutiques globally as well as at museums nationwide, including the Kennedy Space Center and The Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum.
