the shaver that went to the moon
When astronauts Shepard and Roosa returned from their historic Apollo 14
flight, they were as clean-shaven as when they left 9 days earlier. (Mitchell
decided to grow a beard!) The reason? The Wind-Up Monaco shaver, selected by
NASA to keep them comfortable and clean-shaven on their long journey.
The first secret of Monaco's marvelous performance lies in its shaving head.
Three continuously self-sharpening blades revolve at such a fast clip that they
actually give 72,000 cutting strokes per minute. And the guard is so
unbelievably thin (5/100 of a mm—about the thickness of a cigarette
paper) that pressure is unnecessary. Just touch the shaver to your face and
guide it in circular motions for the smoothest shave ever.
The second secret is the power plant. The palm-shaped body of the Monaco is
filled with a huge mainspring, made of the same Swedish super-steel used in the
most expensive watch movements. Just wind it up and the Monaco shaves and
shaves. From ear to ear, from nose to neck, and maintains full speed to the
end—long enough to do the complete job. We could go on about the
virtues of the Monaco, but (as with so many things) you have to try it to
really believe it.
Send for your Monaco today in full confidence. Put it to the test for two
weeks. You'll be delighted with the comfort, speed and
