Omega Boutique Re-Location
For the re-location of the OMEGA Boutique in downtown Beirut – and the Golden Anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing – Tamer Frères and OMEGA have hosted a special event in the newly opened Riad El Solh Street Boutique. The celebration took place on the 22nd of July 2019, with over 300 VIP guests.
It is now 50 years since mankind stepped onto the moon with the OMEGA Speedmaster and changed history forever. On 21st of July 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the lunar surface. In that moment, the OMEGA Speedmaster became the first watch worn on the moon – and it has been known as the “Moonwatch” ever since.
The inauguration of the store was a truly memorable occasion, allowing guests to discover the newest collection of OMEGA timepieces and especially the Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Limited Edition – a wonderful tribute to the iconic mission and OMEGA’s unique space history.
