Alessandro Squarzi’s fashion credentials were not obtained by accident. A prolific Milanese fashion entrepreneur and recognised as having one of the finest collections of vintage clothes, cars and motorcycles, in the whole of Italy, he is considered a sartorial icon. Enamoured by a host of accomplished street photographers for a timeless take on classic styling, he’s the ultimate fan of Omega watches.
What is your earliest memory of Omega?
My very first memory of Omega is the moon landing itself: I was born in 1965, so in 1969, when I was four years old, I saw the lunar landing on TV.
How many do you have in your collection?
I own more or less fifteen Omegas: all of them are very special items.
What do you love most about the Speedmaster?
Well, the Speedmaster has a great story behind it, and I do love whatever has a story to be told!
If you could ask Buzz Aldrin one thing, what would it be?
Could you leave me your Omega in inheritance?
