In an exclusive ‘Golden Moments’ party this August, Swiss luxury watchmaker OMEGA celebrated the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with the launch of a very special timepiece and a truly star-studded party.
Taking guests back to the exact second when the two astronauts of the Apollo 11 took man’s very first steps on the moon, the glamorous event saw esteemed guests and honoured NASA hero Colonel Terry Virts in attendance, as well as Gregory Kissling, Head of Product Management at OMEGA Switzerland.
Right on theme, the event space was decked out in black and gold accents, to elegantly capture the golden age of space exploration which culminated the Apollo 11 mission 50 years ago. However, beyond the scientific phenomena, it is a very special anniversary for OMEGA specifically, as the brand is world-renowned for making the first watch to ever be worn on the moon.
To commemorate this feat, the event saw the launch of the OMEGA Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Limited Edition for the first time in Thailand. Celebrities and fellow Speedmaster lovers — including Unchisa Vacharapol, Pimlert-Jarujit Baiyoke, Chai Bulakul, Veekrit Palarit, ML. Korkrita Kritakara, Taron Liptapallop — got to admire this exclusive timepiece, which is now available in a very limited edition.
