Man on the Moon: 40 years – Omega Speedmaster.

A moon landing is the arrival of a spacecraft on the surface of a planet’s natural satellite and, in this case, it specifically refers to landings on the lunar surface of Earth’s Moon. The first human-made object to reach the surface of the Moon was the Soviet Union’s Luna 2 mission on September 13, 1959. The United States’s Apollo 11 mission was the first manned spacecraft to land on the Moon on July 20, 1969.

The Apollo 11 crew from left to right: Neil Armstrong, Commander; Michael Collins, command module pilot; and , Edwin E. Aldrin Jr., lunar module pilot.
On July 20, 1969, Commander Neil Armstrong said: “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

The Lunar Module “Eagle” consisted of two parts: the descent stage and the ascent stage.
The descent state provided the engine used to land on the moon. It had four legs, a storage area for experimental gear, and a ladder for the crew to climb down to the moon’s surface. The descent module also served as the launch platform for the ascent module when it came time to leave. The ascent module carried the crew back to the Command Service Module.

To walk on the moon’s surface, the astronauts needed to wear a space suit with a back mounted, portable life support system. This controlled the oxygen, temperature and pressure inside the suit.

The crew spend a total of two and a half hours on the moon’s surface. While on the moon’s surface, the performed a variety of experiments and collected soil and rock samples to return to Earth. An North American flag was left on the moon’s surface as a reminder of the accomplishment.

First watch on the Moon and Mars only the sky is the limit.

Exactly at 2:56 GMT on July 21, 1969, the landing of the first humans on the Moon is seen as Neil Armstrong said That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. After satisfactorily passing exhaustive tests designated by NASA, Omega Speedmaster was chosen as the first watch taken to the space. It was worn for intra and extra vehicular activities, including the moonwalks, on all the missions. During extra vehicular activities the astronauts wore the watch on the outside of their pressure suits. After that it became Omega Speedmaster Professional Chronograph, the first Moon Watch. It is still present on Shuttle missions nowadays.
In 1970, the chronograph feature of the Omega Speedmaster Professional was fundamental for giving guidelines to the crew that used the Lunar Module as a lifeboat in space and successfully returned to Earth.ç

Interwatches-Omega-

Today, on its way to the planet Mars, Omega’s Speedmaster X-33 is the pioneer of the space exploration. After 5 years of development and tests, Omega presented a new Omega Speedmaster X-33 watch in 1998, which is now flight-qualified by both NASA and the Russian space agency MIR astronauts and cosmonauts. It is also included as an item of standard equipment and is worn for extra-vehicular activity.

Vanilla Sky (2001)

(Tom Cruise wears a IWC Mark XV)

David Aames takes all he has for granted, especially his relationships. It catches up to him when a friend/sometimes sex-partner can’t see their relationship the way he sees it. From that point, the movie takes a Lynchian twist that ultimately and literally pulls us into Aames’ tortured psyche.

Titanic (1997)
(Bill Paxton wears a Rolex Submariner)

A drifter and artist named Jack Dawson and his best friend Fabrizio De Rossi win third-class tickets to the ship in a game. And she explains the whole story from departure until the death of Titanic on its first and last voyage April 15th, 1912 at 2:20 in the morning.

Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) wears a Panerai in Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001).
Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) is an average woman struggling against her age, her weight, her job, her lack of a man and her many imperfections. As a New Year’s Resolution, Bridget decides to take control of her life, starting by keeping a diary in which she will always tell the complete truth. The fireworks begin when her charming though scandalous boss (Hugh Grant) takes an interest in the peculiar Miss Jones. Thrown into the mix are Bridget’s band of slightly eccentric friends and a rather disagreeable acquaintance that Bridget cannot seem to stop running into or help finding quietly attractive.
