Astronauts help Omega celebrate anniversary of Speedmaster

Astronauts have descended on Hong Kong to help Omega celebrate the 60th anniversary of its Speedmaster watch.

The timepiece, which was launched in 1957, was officially tested and qualified by NASA for all manned space missions and became the first watch ever worn on the moon in 1969, which earned its nickname: the “Moonwatch”.

To celebrate the watch’s anniversary, Omega is hosting the Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Exhibition at IFC Mall.

To help advertise the brand’s celebrations, the Omega astronauts have visited various sights in Hong Kong. They have taken part in Tai Chi in Tsim Sha Tsui, sampled some dim sum, explored the city by taxi and tram and visited Man Mo Temple.
