OMEGA has once again voyaged into the stars as the Swiss watchmaker’s bold legacy of space exploration continues.
In June 2022, Blue Origin’s NS-21 mission gave six customer astronauts the chance to experience the magic of spaceflight. One of those six crew members was Victor Vescovo, a renowned explorer who has achieved many astonishing goals, including his World Record dive to the Challenger Deep with OMEGA in 2019.
“OMEGA is a pioneering brand and we both see possibility wherever we can. It felt very appropriate to bring them along for the NS-21 ride.”
On the eve of his first journey to space, Vescovo met with legendary Apollo 16 astronaut Charlie Duke, who walked on the moon in 1972. In addition to passing on his wisdom and advice, Duke was on hand to congratulate Victor Vescovo while also presenting two OMEGA watches - a Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional and a Speedmaster Skywalker X-33.
“Space exploration requires quality and reliability in the equipment you use, which is why a dependable watch like OMEGA is essential.”
