As the only watch to make it to the moon, the Omega Speedmaster holds a special place in history. Astronauts wore the timepieces during the Apollo program, and it earned them recognition as the official timepiece of NASA.
In celebration of this accomplishment, Omega and Tourbillon at Crystals in CityCenter (the boutique where the brand is sold) team up for a public exhibit running until Oct. 24, featuring an Apollo 10 space suit, a Lunar Rover and a Mars Rover, alongside the watches.
At 11:30 a.m. Oct. 21, Apollo 15’s Brig. Gen. Charlie Duke joins Gemini-Apollo astronaut Lt. Gen. Thomas Stafford and Apollo 17’s Capt. Gene Cernan (the last man to walk on the moon) for a public forum moderated by former CNN correspondent Miles O’Brien. A portion of the proceeds from all Omega watch sales Oct. 20-31 at Tourbillon benefit the Nevada Cancer Institute.
