Swiss watchmaker OMEGA, in partnership with the Artists Council, Director’s Council, and Future Leadership Council of the Whitney Museum of American Art, celebrates the launch of the landmark timepiece, the OMEGA Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon.
Actor Patrick Wilson, actresses Taylor Schilling and Jaime King along with model Coco Rocha and New York Giant Jason Pierre-Paul joined the luxury brand at a cocktail party with the Whitney Museum of American Art at Cedar Lake in New York, where notables including Wes Gordon, Jodie and Danielle Snyder, Yigal Azrouël, Laura De Gunzburg, Elizabeth Kurpis, Nicole & Matthew Mellon, Thom Felicia, Lydia Fenet and Helen Schifter mingled with OMEGA management from the brand's Swiss headquarters.
DJ Hannah Bronfman provided the entertainment at the party that featured art installations, both video and still, highlighting the watch’s design elements and the celestial body that inspired it.
Emblematic of OMEGA’s bold style, forward-thinking innovation and adventurous spirit, the black ceramic Co-Axial Speedmaster salutes the astronauts of the Apollo 8 mission, who in 1968 were the first people to see the dark side of the moon with their own eyes. Their achievement inspired this version of the iconic Speedmaster and spurred groundbreaking technologies: the case of “Dark Side of the Moon” is crafted from a single block of black zirconium oxide ceramic, an innovation that evokes the mysteriousness and allure of space. It is powered by the Co-Axial caliber 9300, the first of the brand’s exclusive in-house movement to incorporate a chronograph function.
