In the year 1957, the OMEGA Speedmaster was born out of these requirements – to create a robust chronograph that was water-proof, easy to read, easy to use and exceedingly precise. It became the original timepiece in a legendary family, commonly known as the first watch ever worn on the moon, and easily well-loved by many collectors.
This year in 2017, OMEGA celebrates the past six decades of the Speedmaster with the global exhibition aptly named “Replica Omega Speedmaster 60th Anniversary”.
Within the exhibition space, visitors can admire the fascinating history of this timepiece through photographs, vintage watches and interactive screens, through which the visitors will be able to navigate on a microsite dedicated to the Speedmaster 60th Anniversary and a special section called “Faces of Speedmaster” that collects images from famous Speedmaster owners all over the world.
The exhibition will be held at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands and will be open to the public from 29 June to 9 July from 11.00am until 9.00pm, daily.
