Speedmaster’s new space mission

In July of 1969, OMEGA’s Speedmaster became the first watch worn on the moon. 

Now, the legendary chronograph is about to embark on its next great adventure beyond Earth, as official timepiece of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC). 
The start of OMEGA’s long-term partnership with the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre aligned with the launch of the longest Arab space mission in history on March 2nd, in which astronaut Sultan AlNeyadi, journeyed into space equipped with an OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch and an OMEGA Speedmaster X-33.


H.E. Salem Humaid AlMarri, Director General, MBRSC, speaking on the collaboration, said: “We are delighted to have OMEGA as the official timekeeper for MBRSC, as we continue on our journey of discoveries and new milestones in the space sector. This collaboration is a testament to our commitment to excellence and innovation in space exploration, and we look forward to carrying forward the storied legacy of the timepiece through a new era of possibilities that will take us to space, the Moon and beyond.'

OMEGA’s exciting new collaboration is a source of pride for the Swiss brand’s President and CEO, Mr. Raynald Aeschlimann, who spoke fondly of the Speedmaster’s distinguished legacy during the official signing ceremony at Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre: “Since that first giant leap in 1969, space travel has evolved into a truly global endeavour and the fact that our Speedmaster is still the timepiece strapped to the wrists of astronauts is testament to its precision and excellence.” 


As the space watch of choice for the astronauts of the UAE National Space Program, OMEGA’s Speedmaster begins an exciting new chapter in its extraordinary story, which includes multiple lunar landings and a vital role in the safe return of Apollo 13’s crew.
