The Swatch Group OMEGA Golden Moments
On the 20th of August, 2019, OMEGA paid tribute to the iconic Apollo 11 mission that made history 50 years ago, and the OMEGA Speedmaster’s role on the wrists of the astronauts.
Attending the event as special guest all the way from Texas, USA, was Charlie Duke, CAPCOM for Apollo 11 and Apollo 16 lunar module pilot.
Stage 1 of Fox Studios in Sydney was transformed into a tribute to the moon, featuring moon phase installations and OMEGA’s iconic “golden astronaut” suspended high above the dining space.
Media and VIP guests enjoyed a “Golden Moments” dinner, highlighted by Charlie Duke and Lisa Wilkinson in a live Q&A, in which Charlie shared firsthand accounts of NASA’s most iconic missions.
The exciting menu and event atmosphere took guests on a journey to the moon and back, and the night was capped off with a grand finale dessert inspired by lunar meteorites.
Special guests Julie Bishop, David Panton, Mack Horton, Lisa Wilkinson, Anna Heinrich and Lindy Rama-Ellis were in attendance alongside media and OMEGA VIP customers
