2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing and to celebrate, Omega whose claim to fame as the first watch worn on the moon hosted a tribute at Florida's Kennedy Space Center in the United States.
Themed Golden Moments, the revered guests, which included NASA veterans, the former astronauts Charlie Duke and Thomas Stafford, Omega's ambassador George Clooney and astronaut-artist Nicole Stott, were invited to the extraordinary evening to remember the mission that made history.
"We were heading to the Moon, but we were also grounded, very realistic, and we never took success for granted, not once."
– Charlie Duke
