Since the beginning of time, Man has looked up at Space and desired to explore the mysteries outside the relative safety of our atmosphere. These delicate layers of gases protect us from the inhospitable never ending Universe that surrounds Earth.

An astronaut’s duty is to venture into the hostile unknown of Space, trusting only in his or her own instincts and the reliability of the technologies provided to aid their mission and ultimately, bring them back home.

The OMEGA Speedmaster has, since 1965, been an Astronaut’s ally. It has become an icon and testament to courage and endurance in the face of unthinkable adversity, worn not only by those brave astronauts renowned for their feats of courage and fearlessness, but by people the world over.
