Celebrities join George Clooney & Buzz Aldrin to Celebrate 60 Years of the Omega Speedmaster

Omega celebrated the 60th anniversary of its iconic Speedmaster watch with a star-filled event in London. George Clooney and Buzz Aldrin were the guests of honour at the “Lost in Space” event, a theme which paid tribute to the Speedmaster’s unrivalled legacy in space exploration. The night was hosted by Professor Brian Cox at London’s Tate Modern which was transformed to give guests a truly sensory experience. Inside, the venue was given a sleek and futuristic touch with a centrepiece of 60 important Speedmaster models from 1957 to 2017. Most famously, as part of Apollo 11 in 1969, Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the lunar surface and, in that moment, the Omega Speedmaster became the first watch ever worn on the moon. Amongst the many VIP guests at the London event were; Liv Tyler, Gemma Arterton, Ellie Goulding, Clemence Poesy, Joely Richardson, Pixie Lott, Liu Shishi, and others. The “Lost in Space” event concluded with a performance by ESKA, who gave a rousing rendition of David Bowie’s classic song Space Oddity.
