To launch their revolutionary Speedmaster Dark Side of The Moon timepiece, Swiss watchmaker OMEGA partner with the Artists Council, Director’s Council, and Future Leadership Council of the Whitney Museum of American Art for a night of cocktails.
As the only watch to qualify for the 1968 Apollo 8 first mission to the moon, the Omega Speedmaster Professional has furthered an innovative and adventurous spirit by having a presence in every NASA space flight since. In honor of the watch’s initial encounter with the dark side of the moon, Omega design an all-black zirconium oxide ceramic wristwatch featuring a listening Co-Axial caliber 9300 movement viewable from the back. The watch’s striking resemblance to the mysterious allure of space left notable attendees to discuss watch’s innovative design, function, and impressive history.
