Astronauts from the landmark Gemini and Apollo NASA programs will join Omega and Tourbillon in Las Vegas to celebrate an exhibit featuring rare artifacts from the iconic space missions. The exhibit will showcase a Lunar Rover, an Apollo 10 space suit and Mars Rover, and Omega Speedmaster watches. The exhibit runs from October 20th to 24th at City Center and is open to the public.
In addition to the exhibit, Omega and Tourbillon will host an invitation-only VIP cocktail reception Thursday, October 20th from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Tourbillon boutique. The reception will honor Gemini and Apollo astronaut Lt. General Thomas Stafford and Apollo 17 astronaut—and last man to walk on the moon—Captain Gene Cernan. A portion of the proceeds of sales from this special reception – and from all Omega watch sales at Tourbillion between October 20th and 31st – will benefit cancer care and research at Nevada Cancer Institute.
The following day, Friday, October 21st , Brigadier General Charlie Duke, who flew to the moon on Apollo 15, will join General Stafford and Captain Cernan for a public forum and panel discussion moderated by former CNN correspondent and journalist Miles O’Brien.
