Omega’s space legend has always been talked about. This time, ‘The First Man on the Moon’ also accurately restored the glorious history of Omega watches accompanying astronauts on the Apollo program and other space missions.
In 1964, with the rapid development of the space program, NASA began to look for watches for all manned space programs. Many brands provided timepieces to NASA, and only the Omega Speedmaster successfully passed a series of rigorous tests. On March 1, 1965, NASA announced that the Omega Speedmaster watch was ‘a watch approved to participate in all manned space flight missions.’
Since then, Omega has been the only watch brand designated for NASA’s manned space missions. Omega watches have accompanied astronauts on many space missions, including the last Mercury Mission, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, and Apollo -Soyuz) and so on. Today, the Omega Speedmaster is still used in space flight programs and is one of the permanent equipment of the International Space Station.
In 1969, the Omega Speedmaster watch accompanied the Apollo 11 astronaut on the moon’s surface, becoming the first watch to land on the moon and entered the annals of history. In the movie ‘The First Man on the Moon,’ Omega provided the crew with several Speedmaster watches and other models that coincided with the plot of the film, which became an important symbol of the era in the film.
