Moonwalker Buzz Aldrin Working with Omega on Future Mars Mission Watch

In what will come as feverish news for Speedmaster-wearing space enthusiasts, second man to walk on the Moon – Buzz Aldrin, has revealed that he is working with Omega to design a watch to be worn during future manned Mars mission.

During a visit to this summer’s Olympic Games, of which Omega is official timekeeper, Buzz Aldrin put out a photo of himself on twitter standing alongside a high-ranking representative for the Swiss watchmaker, with what the former astronaut claims to be rough sketches of a watch for future missions to Mars.

Aldrin has long been an advocate for NASA’s Mars programme, being one of the more prominent and louder advocates for a manned Mars mission, as well as a long-standing Omega brand ambassador, making his involvement in any Omega Mars watch project all-the-more likely.

Details of the watch are understandably scarce at this point, however the prospect of a 21st century icon in the form of an all-new Omega Speedmaster seems increasingly likely, which is something all budding watch enthusiasts will be excited for.
