Everyone has heard of the luxury watchmaker OMEGA, but did you know that when Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the Moon’s surface in 1969 he was wearing an OMEGA Speedmaster Professional, making it the first watch to be worn on the Moon.
Neil Armstrong reportedly left his watch in the lunar module.
Fast forward to the modern day and OMEGA is still going strong, but its watches tend to be Earth based and worn by celebrities instead of astronauts.
Celebrities such as Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman who attended a celebration of over 100 years of ladies’ watchmaking in Beijing earlier this week.
Kidman, who is an Oscar-winning actress, has been an OMEGA ambassador for over 10 years and wore the luxury watchmakers latest ladies’ timepiece, the Constellation Petite Seconde Master Chronometer, to the event.
Guests at the event were shown timepieces from different eras, including OMEGA’s new Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M ladies’ watches and the Ladymatic, a timepiece often worn on the red carpet by Nicole Kidman.
