It seems Omega Watches has an appetite for Oscar winners. After George Clooney took center stage in Houston for the brand’s 45th anniversary celebration of Apollo 13 earlier this month, newly minted Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne has been tapped as the newest face of the brand. With the title of International Brand Ambassador, Mr. Redmayne will be tasked with simply looking good whilst sporting an Omega watch.
“I have worn Omega for a number of years, so to be made an official ambassador for the brand on a global level is very exciting,” Mr. Redmayne said in a statement. “To join a brand whose own credentials include the only watch to be officially certified by NASA, and the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games is an honour.” Along with Mr. Clooney, Mr. Redmayne joins the esteemed ranks of Omega ambassadors who have included Nicole Kidman, Rory McIlroy, and Cindy Crawford.
“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Eddie to the Omega family,” Omega President Stephen Urquhart said. “He brings true elegance and integrity, and is incredibly humble about his success-something that sits perfectly with the OMEGA spirit. We very much look forward to working together.”
