Watches on the Screen – the Omega Timepieces of “First Man”
The Academy Awards are Sunday night, capping the end of a long awards season. In that spirit, we thought we’d highlight a story from the Worn & Wound archives that takes a look at the watches of “First Man,” Damien Chazelle’s film dramatizing the life of Neil Armstrong. Of course, there are many, many Speedmasters in the film, but a surprising variety of watches are highlighted in this story from October of 2018. Chazelle’s film is notably meticulous in its period details, something that not every movie can claim.
