Celebrities Advertise For Omega Watches

One of my favorite accessories is a watch. I wish I had a lot more of them than I do. There are some really nice ones out there. Here are some ads and so forth from the prestigious Swiss company Omega Watches. What do you think of these watches? What kind of watch do you wear? Checking out these ads got me wondering what type of watches Dean Martin and the other members of the Rat Pack wore. Any ideas? Let me know what you think.

Pierce Brosnan is my fav bond of all time :o]

Keith said...

Sean Connery is my favorite, but Pierce Brosnan is the Bond that introduced my sister to the world of 007.

Hey Ash. You are very welcome. I like your blog. Thanks for stopping by mine and commenting. I appreciate it. Take care. Have a good week. Cheers!

wiec? said...

nice collection you got there. i like the one with Craig pointing the gun toward the camera. is he telling me "you better buy this watch" or "don't even think of trying to nick this watch"?

either way they're some nice watches.

i still wear a watch even though everthing i own these days has a clock on it. (phone, ipod, laptop etc.)

Keith said...

Hey Wiec. Thanks. Glad you liked them. Maybe Craig is trying to use force to get people to buy a watch. Who knows. lol I actually don't wear a watch anymore. I've been missing it though. I usually look at the time on my cellphone.

JFK Jean said...

I like a classic, small timepiece but as far as what you posted, I loved the one in the first photo of Daniel Craig and Clooney's as well.

I'm currently eying a classic 50 or 60's inspired watch that won't kill my wallet. A recent GQ story helped me with that a bit....

Rev. Phantom said...

Great watches.

I've always wore a watch. A few months ago mine broke and I've been walking around without one and it drives me crazy. I almost feel naked without it. I just haven't found a new one to replace it yet.

Keith said...

Hey James. Thanks for the feedback. I really the ones in those particular ads too. I definitely want to get me a new watch. I haven't had one in a few years. I need to scope out and see what I like.

Keith said...

Hey Rev. Thanks. Glad you liked them. I hope you are able to find you a new watch that you like. I haven't had a good one in years. The last time or so I bought cheap watches. I want to get something nice and stylish. I just don't want it to bust my wallet.

Simply Mel said...

Great post!

I do not wear a watch, for I find it too constricting both mentally and physically - or maybe it's because I've not found the perfect one yet!

Reminded me of my husband and how he decides on if he should or should not wear something...he always asks the question, "what would Bond wear?".

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and yes, wouldn't it be great to have a personal island!

Keith said...

Hey Mel. Thanks for your feedback. I appreciate you stopping by my blog and commenting. I enjoy your blog. I definitely will visit again. I hope you will do the same here. Oh yeah. I often base what I do on James Bond. :-) It would be great to have my own island. Take care. Enjoy your week ahead. Cheers!

Allison said...

I love all of these - I especially like the last photo of Anna Kournikova and the watch she is wearing in that picture! It's cute and looks like it would be good for every day :)
I also love all the photos of Daniel Craig. They're fantastic.
Thanks for sharing these, Keith!

Keith said...

Hey Allison. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed these ads and the watches. I thought there were some really nice looking watches here. Take care. Have a great week.

Mirko di Wallenberg said...

Although some of the ads are ok, I find the Omega watches a little bit dull in design and appeal! Pitty!

Gingeyginge said...

Watches are beautiful...I own many..but never wear any....time only goes forward i will wait for the watch that can take me back...

Fashion Moment said...

This post is pure perfection! I love it!

janettaylor said...

Hi Keith,

Omega is gorge.

I have got some watches, but especially designer items. My favourite watches are vintage Gucci (changed bangles) and Prada huge plexi watch. I want a Chanel but soooo expensive. :'(

XoXo

Keith said...

Hey Mirko. Glad you at least like some of the ads even if you don't care for the watches themselves.

Keith said...

Hey Gingey. Thanks. That would be a cool watch that could take us back in time.

Keith said...

Thanks Fashion Moment. Glad you liked it so much.

Keith said...

Hey Ryder. Thanks. It was nice hearing from you. Have a great week.

Keith said...

Hey Janet. Thanks. Glad you liked these. Those favorite watches sound fantastic. Have a great week.

Nancy Sinatra Fan said...

Ads full of handsome men. Such a nice way to start off a new week.

Planet Mondo said...

Don't tempt me - I could go mad for watches I've already bought 4 G-Shocks this year

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. Glad you liked them.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Wow! Definitely sounds like you love watches.

Kat said...

for some reason I do not own a watch, but this post reminds me how stylish a watch can be.

Keith said...

Thanks Kat. I only have a couple of cheap watches that I never wear. I'd like to get a nice one.

Couture Carrie said...

Love this post, especially all the 007s! And Clooney looks pretty great too!

Erika said...

Weirdness...I posted about watches today myself - albeit, more feminine watches. Great finds! :)

Keith said...

Hey Carrie. Thanks. I'm really glad you enjoyed it. Cheers!

Keith said...

Thanks Erika. That is cool. I actually had done this post a few days ago, but scheduled it for today.

coco said...

It shows how much selling power celebrities have.

Shopaholic said...

Daniel Craig is my bestest bond ever! My boyf wants one of these watches, but it is several thousand pounds, so he will have to wait!!

Ela said...

I LOVE watches too!
I especially love George Clooney's choice :)
Hope you had a fab weekend!

Gabbi said...

Great ads! My most favorite is that 3rd Bond one. The perspective is amazing...

clarewbrown said...

Ahhh how I love Pierce! And those watches are divine! You always have amazing posts!

Cheers,
C

Jessica Cangiano said...

*Swoons over a few of the dapper gents presented in these sleek ads*;D

Wonderful roundup of images, Keith. I agree watches are such a timelessly wonderful accessory, especially for men who don't have the arsenal of accessories available to them that us gals do.

Thank you for the eye candy - hope you're having a great week!
♥ Jessica

Keith said...

Hey Coco. I agree with you there.

Keith said...

Hey Shopaholic. Thanks. I really like Daniel Craig. I'm a Connery man though. I would love to have one of these watches. I'm too poor for one though.

Keith said...

Hey Ela. Thanks. I do like the one George has. The weekend was great. Unfortunately today wasn't. Take care.

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. Thanks. Glad you enjoyed them.

Keith said...

Thanks Clare. I appreciate that. I'm glad you enjoy my posts.

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed these. Watches are one of those few accessories it seems like us guys have.

The Haute-Shopper said...

My better half actually got the James Bond Seamaster watch (the latest addition) but it's the version that doesn't explicitely have the 007 logo anywhere (thankfully). It's a great watch. A friend of mine shares your taste in movies and music. He goes around collecting old movie posters and he seems convinced that Dean Martin et. al would wear vintage gold watches. I'm not enitrely sure I agree (a bit too bling?) but you never know...

Kristýna said...

I remember having the first Pierce Brosnan's ad on my wall in the room when I was smaller (I really loved that guy). Well, actually, I think, I forced my dad to take a photo of me and one of Brosnan's Omega ads when we were in Greece and I saw it in a local watch store. Anyway, thanks for the advert with JFK. I have never known, he made any advert. It is quite strange, you know, he was a president... (But still, I love just like Reagan's old ciarette ads!).

Keith said...

Hey Haute Shopper. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I appreciate hearing from you. That's cool about your better half. That's also cool about your friend. There are plenty of us out there who love things of this era. I do wonder what sort of watch Dean Martin would have worn.

Keith said...

Hey Kristyna. Thanks. Great hearing from you. That's cool about Pierce. JFK never did any ads that I know of. I'm not sure if they had to get the rights to use his image or not. I'm not sure how that works with former presidents. It is a cool ad. I actually saw a commercial for Omega yesterday that used clips from JFK in it.

R.A said...

Love both Craig + Olga! Hope you had a great week, mine was hectic but so good I had to abandon my blog LOL

Keith said...

Hey R.A. Thanks. Glad you liked this post. I had a really rough week at work. I'm thrilled it's the weekend. I'm happy that you enjoyed your week. Have a great weekend. Cheers!

I myself, wear an Omega Seamaster professional 300m quartz watch.
