"Outside the Spacecraft: 50 Years of Extra-Vehicular Activity" exhibition in Washington D.C.

The Omega Museum is participating in an exhibition being held at the National Air and Space Museum (NASM). One of the world's leading museums, the NASM is part of the Smithsonian Institute. The major display features important artifacts showcasing some of humankind's finest hours and greatest adventures.

Among several NASA artifacts that had not been displayed publicly, the Omega Museum has provided key Speedmaster chronograph watches as well as an exclusive handcrafted piece: an incredible "exploded" view of a period-correct ST105.003 Speedmaster, the same model worn by astronaut Edward White on America's first spacewalk during the Gemini IV mission.

The exhibition will be on display at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. until June 2015.
