Omega watches have been associated with the US Space Program since Gemini and was used right through Apollo. So it should not have been surprising that when it came time to select a watch for the Space Shuttle crew, the trusty Speedmaster was chosen yet again to slip the surly bonds of earth. I would drool over ads like this as a kid and planned on getting an astronaut-like Omega when I got older. Well here I am, older, and I still don’t have that watch.
