OMEGA Speedmaster - 60 years of an icon

Back

OMEGA celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Speedmaster history with a special exhibition at La Triennale di Milano.

In 1957, OMEGA set out to create a robust chronograph that was water-proof, easy to read, easy to use and exceedingly precise. The result was a watch quite unlike any other: the Speedmaster.  Its clean dial design was even inspired by the dashboards of Italian cars and its own engine was the calibre 321, a movement that became synonymous with reliability. From the very beginning, the Speedmaster is instantly recognisable and universally admired.

Within the exhibition space, visitors can admire the fascinating history of this timepiece through photographs, vintage watches and interactive screens, through which the visitors will be able to navigate on a mini-site dedicated to the Speedmaster 60th Anniversary and a special section called “Faces of Speedmaster” that collects images from famous Speedmaster owners all over the world.

The exhibition at the Triennale di Milano in Viale Alemagna 6, will be open to the public from April 5th until April 9th from 10.30am until 10pm.
