IN GOOD TIME: “Bridgerton” star Jonathan Bailey has joined Omega as a friend of the brand.
The British actor appears in a solo campaign with his arms crossed and his thumb touching his face, showing off his silver Aqua Terra with a sandstone dial watch from the Swiss luxury watchmaker.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the Omega family, not only because of their dedication to their craft, but also because of the ethos of creativity, kindness and brilliance that exists so profoundly in their team and the way they work,” said Bailey in a statement.
Raynald Aeschlimann, president and chief executive officer of Omega, said the actor’s “excellence was there from the start. He worked hard to earn his place on the world stage and continues to develop and evolve. These are values in line with our own. We’re proud to have him in the family.”
