To the moon and back! How the Omega Speedmaster became 'the Moonwatch'

  • 50 yrs on, people are still talking about Buzz Aldrin and Edmund Hillary’s iconic watches
The source of many a myth and legend, the OMEGA Speedmaster has been the choice of astronauts and space agencies for half a century.

On July 21, 1969 at 2.56 GMT, Neil Armstrong stepped off the Eagle to become the first human to stand on another world. Buzz Aldrin was 15-minutes behind him and the Speedmaster Professional became the first watch to be worn on the Moon. This "common" object has become one of the most famous watches in the world and has been associated with some of humankind's greatest adventures in space, earning it the name "the Moonwatch".

More than 45 years and countless missions later, the Speedmaster remains flight-qualified and boasts a huge following. In fact, no other piece of equipment - let alone a watch - can claim to have been used during the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Soyuz, Salyut, Space Shuttle, MIR and International Space Station programs.

The achievements of the Speedmaster are such that it has a huge fan following across the globe and one of them happens to be George Clooney. The Speedmaster's reputation as the first watch worn on the Moon was and continues to be well-known and is, in fact, the reason why Clooney's father and uncle each owned their own Omega timepieces. Ever since he was a child, Clooney has said there were cer t ai n elements that reminded him of the space program and Omega was one of them. "The astronauts, when I was growing up were, of course, heroes. We knew all the astronauts' names; we even ate the food that astronauts ate. Our whole lives revolved around space, and Omega was the watch that went to the Moon," he says.
