Omega dominates social media with links to its moon landing history


With just 12 days to go until the 50th anniversary date of man’s first step on the moon, retailers are reporting a surge in interest for Omega, which provided watches for the Apollo 11 mission and many other trips into space.

Brand ambassadors including Buzz Aldrin, Charlie Duke (an Apollo 16  who landed on the moon in 1972) and George Clooney are adding historical and contemporary firepower to campaigns that include traditional advertising, in-store and window display merchandising and a massive social media blitz.

The Omega ‘Moonwatch’ Speedmaster was center of attention at a 50th Anniversary photo shoot at Kennedy Space Station fearing Mr Clooney.
