OMEGA returns to space

OMEGA joins forces with Swiss company ClearSpace in support of their landmark mission to remove dangerous debris from space.

“Once again OMEGA asserts its commitment to creating a more sustainable future”
OMEGA is returning to space, only this time, on a vital clean-up mission. An exciting new chapter in a distinguished history that began in 1965, when OMEGA’s Speedmaster became the watch qualified by NASA for all manned space missions.
“The makers of the first watch worn on the moon are now helping to clean up space”
In line with the brand’s pioneering spirit, OMEGA is collaborating with ClearSpace to perform the first ever capture and removal of an uncontrolled space satellite: stage one of a long-term project to create an affordable service for space debris removal.
Today there are thousands of satellites orbiting Earth, a huge percentage of them “failed”. These uncontrollable objects present risks of explosions or collisions with other satellites. Humankind’s next big challenge is keeping space clean in order to ensure sustainable growth in the future – and OMEGA is thrilled and proud to be part of the solution.
