OMEGA PAYS TRIBUTE TO ITS SPEEDMASTER FANS

As the OMEGA Speedmaster turns 60 this year, the brand is proudly celebrating not just the watch, but also the people who wear it. Many stories have been told of the astronauts, explorers and racing car drivers who have trusted the Speedmaster throughout its lifetime, but today, there is a truly diverse community of fans from all over the world. In tribute, OMEGA has tracked down just some of these fans and brought them together in a series of revealing portraits. From actors and chefs to athletes and fashion experts, these people all have one thing in common: They love OMEGA’s famous chronograph. And they have all been photographed to show that the Speedmaster is always close to their wrists, as well as their hearts.
