The First Clock Ever Worn on the Moon

The Speedmaster of Omega is 60 – and the Swiss brand of course celebrates extensively, among other things with testimonial George Clooney. We also congratulate a clock that wrote history.

It is also difficult for experts to keep an overview of all the jubilees in the watchmaking industry . Almost every round birthday is marketed in the short term – with the effect that some occasion for celebration loses in value. However, the Omega Speedmaster is quite different. It is one of the models that have written history with their aesthetics and functionality; in this respect it is only understandable that the brand, which belongs to the Swatch Group, broadly communicates its 60th birthday.

As the first watch ever worn on the moon, it is symbolic of the technology-friendly time spirit of the sixties, when the Western world was about to conquer the universe before the Soviets.There, their precision proved – their services were jointly responsible for saving the American Apollo 13 mission;the astronauts timed the critical 14 seconds to the course correction when re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere with the chronograph function of the model.Later, the Apollo-Soyuz meeting attended the wrists of Russian cosmonauts and their US colleagues, and the clock was on board in one of the spaceshuttles.

George Clooney is a fan of the classic

However, on the earth, the timepiece has also experienced a lot in the past 60 years. Originally designed as a watch for racing drivers in 1957, a Speedmaster was used in 1968 for the first time to determine the exact position of the geographic North Pole by Ralph Plaisted. In 1996 the Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher launched a version of the racing-style model.

In the jubilee year, the Swiss manufacturer is working with George Clooney , which is unlikely to be imagined.He says, “Some things are simply classics, and what has this status, you always want to have.Sure, we also want new technologies – our smartphones, for example – but it would break our hearts if the classics were to change something that we loved them for.”

The company has devoted its own watch to a dedicated website , which traces the way of the model meticulously.With this, Omega is fueled by the trend to deal more with the digital.And one thing you can say:As much as the versions from the different years deviate from each other – the Speedmaster has always remained recognizable.This will always be the same in times of the Internet – so George Clooney can be reassured.
