After the success of the Aviation Watch Report series for Vanity Fair, Owen was delighted to be invited back to create the sets for the latest edition, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11's landing on the moon.
For this series Owen teamed up with the amazing Magnus Torsne, and together with Creative Director Scott Moore set out to push the set designs one step further, aiming to reflect the excitement and awe of the Apollo 11 mission.
Inspired by archive footage from the Apollo 11 mission, the sets recreate one of the most exciting journeys humankind has ever taken, with the watches placed at the iconic launch, across the panels of the control centre, entering the stratosphere and finally at the awe inspiring landing itself. The details of each set were painstakingly produced and put together by hand out of paper and were designed to be as close to the real thing as possible.
Retro designs, mysterious moon rocks and galactic colours pair beautifully with the watches, each one carefully placed to sit amongst the curved and angles of each scene, complementing their unique designs and beautiful engineering.
