On July 20th the world will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first lunar landing. On Wednesday, June 3, 2009, the OMEGA Flagship Boutique in New York City hosted an event featuring Apollo 11 lunar module pilot, Dr. Buzz Aldrin. Dr. Aldrin was the second man to walk on the Moon and the first to wear an OMEGA Speedmaster on the lunar surface. He was joined by Stephen Urquhart, the president of OMEGA.
Dr. Aldrin donated his own Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch to OMEGA; the watch will be part of the boutique’s permanent display. Photos were taken with an authentic Apollo mission space suit followed by a press conference and a series of one-on-one interviews with key members of the local and national press.
A VIP cocktail reception attended by many celebrities and prominent New Yorkers capped off the eventful day.
