George Clooney was just a boy when his hero Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon. Nearly 50 years later, the two legends of space and screen finally met. OMEGA was right there to capture the moment as they headed to the cinema to relive their personal memories.
The OMEGA Speedmaster Professional Chronograph has a unique place in the history of space exploration as the only piece of equipment used in all of NASA’s piloted space missions from Gemini to the current International Space Station program. When Buzz Aldrin stepped on the lunar surface in 1969, he was wearing a Speedmaster Professional, the chronograph that has been known as the Moonwatch ever since.
“I was eight years old and we looked through the telescope and I explained to my parents that I could see you guys walking on the moon at that point - which of course was impossible.”
THE MAN OF THE MOON
“My mother was born the year that the Wright brothers first flew. Marion Moon was her name.”
