“We choose to go to the moon”

"We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard"

In this 1962 speech given at Rice University in Houston, President John F. Kennedy reaffirmed America’s commitment to landing a man on the moon before the end of the 1960s.

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the moon landing, Omega introduced this commercial as Buzz Aldrin wore his Omega Speedmaster Professional on the moon, on 20 July 1969, making it the first watch worn on the moon. Util this day, the Omega Speedmaster Professional, also known as the moonwatch, is the only watch flight-qualified by NASA.
