On July 21st, 1969, Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the lunar surface, completing one of humankind’s greatest hours. A lifelong ambition was now beneath his feet, paving the way for a new era of exploration. Around his wrist, the astronaut wore an OMEGA Speedmaster Professional, which in that moment, became the first watch worn on the moon. For this 53rd anniversary, OMEGA pays tribute not only to Buzz, but to all those who saw possibility in the night sky.
