Omega Celebrates The Anniversary Of The Moon Landing With Buzz Aldrin


Its one small step for Omega and one giant leap for the legendary astronaut

53 years ago, astronaut Neil Armstrong said the now famous quote, “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” This moment was so iconic and remains highly relevant today because of the significance of us “earth-lings” finally putting men on the moon. Watchmaker, Omega, now celebrates this moment.Omega

Half A Century Of Iconic

On the anniversary of history’s first moon landing, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, and second man on the moon, has spent time with watchmaker, Omega, reflecting on the hours, and the watch that made history on 21 July, 1969. We are not sure how the brand could outdo landing on the moon yet somehow, it managed exactly that.

The astronaut was the Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo 11 when it touched down on the Sea of Tranquillity exactly 53 years ago. His first steps were a remarkable achievement for humanity and also for the Omega Speedmaster Professional on his wrist, which in that moment, became the first watch worn on the moon. Talk about callbacks.Omega

A History Of Reliability

In lieu of that anniversary, Omega also captured a new portrait of Buzz Aldrin wearing the Speedmaster 321, which houses the legendary calibre that powered every Speedmaster ever worn on the moon. From Apollo 11 right through to Apollo 17, the Calibre 321 was depended on by astronauts for its accuracy and reliability.Omega

A Heritage Spanning The Stars

The Apollo 11 mission remains the most extraordinary highlight of Omega’s long heritage in space. As such, it is an honour to commemorate that story today and celebrate the inspirational accomplishments of Buzz Aldrin himself. This makes the celebration of the anniversary of the moon landing that much more fun.Omega
