Recently, Omega partnered with the Artists Council, Director’s Council, and Future Leadership Council of the Whitney Museum of American Art, to celebrate the launch of their highly anticipated Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon in NYC.
Omega held a cocktail party reception with the Whitney Museum of American Art at Cedar Lake in New York.The party featured art installations, both video and still, highlighting the watch’s design elements and the celestial body that inspired it. In attendance to show support were the likes of Actor Patrick Wilson, actresses Taylor Schilling and Jaime King along with model Coco Rocha and New York Giant Jason Pierre-Paul .
The Omega dark side of the Moon Watch celebrates and pays homage to those astronauts of the Apollo 8 mission who were the first people to see the dark side of the moon with their own eyes in 1968.
This is incredible historic achievement in history inspired Omega to create the Speedmaster Dark SIde of the Moon Watch which is constructed from a single block of black zirconium oxide ceramic, an innovation that evokes the mysteriousness and allure of space. This watch is driven by the Co-Axial caliber 9300, the first of the brand’s exclusive in-house movement to incorporate a chronograph function.
