Omega auctions eleven MoonSwatch cases

From 12 to 24 February, the watchmaking house auctioned 11 MoonSwatch Moonshine Gold suitcases through Sotheby’s, each containing all of the 11 Omega X Swatch “Mission to Moonshine Gold” timepieces. This was the very first time that these rare models were offered together in one set, as well as the first time that the suitcase was available to buy. The entire auction proceeds were donated to Omega’s long-term partner, Orbis International.

Before the auction, the “Mission to Moonshine Gold” suitcases went on display at 11 Omega boutiques around the world: Zurich, Tokyo, Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing, New York, London, Milan, Paris and Sydney.

Orbis’s work is especially valuable for children visually impaired, allowing many of them to see their parents, the moon and the stars for the very first time. Through its programmes and on board the Flying Eye Hospital, Orbis has provided care for millions of patients, while also training eye care professionals in areas with the greatest need globally. Omega has supported Orbis since 2011 and this auction highlights the brand’s ongoing commitment to the cause.
