Buzz Aldrin And Omega Are Making A Watch That Can Go To Mars

We've got to actually get there first, though

While it appears that we're a number of years away from even sending a manned mission to Mars, Buzz Aldrin and Omega have already gotten started on designing a watch that can survive the Red Planet.

An Omega ambassador for number of years, as well as a high profile advocate of NASA's Mars programme, Aldrin's involvement in the design process is encouraging for enthusiasts of both great watches and space travel.

Although actual details of the watch itself are scarce, we're hoping for a special addition Speedmaster, or perhaps even a new design to challenge the brand's flagship model.
