Omega celebrates 50th anniversary of moon landing

It was an unforgettable moment for Omega when the first two astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon wearing the Omega Speedmaster Professional chronographs back in 1969 and instantly made the Swiss watchmaker a household name.

This year marked the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and the Swiss watch label hosted a unique exhibition titled “The 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing” at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, from August 5th to August 11th.

Greeted by two life-sized Golden Astronauts, the commemorative exhibition housed two spaces – the Lunar room and the Space room –, where the attendees were given a tour of the Omega space exploration journey and taken to an awe-inspiring galaxy space respectively.

What’s more, the highlight of the exhibition was none other than the display of Omega’s inventions like the Speedmaster “First Watch on the Moon”, the Speedmaster “First OMEGA in Space”, the Speedmaster “Blue Side of the Moon’’, the Speedmaster “Dark Side of the Moon” Apollo 8 and the Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Limited Edition.
