    How much would a Omega Seamaster cost, without George Clooney, Cindy Crawford &co?

    I think George Clooney , Cindy Crawford, Nicole Kidman and all these folks don't need my money.

    OMEGA Watches: Ambassadors


    How much does George & Co earn when you buy a Omega?

    Would you buy your watch without the ambassadors?

    You will not change the marketing strategies of the Swatch Group or any other company. Just do not buy Omega. Simple, isn't it ?

    There is nothing wrong with marketing. If it bothers you, just don't buy the product to protest. I don't buy Omega watches because Clooney or whoever else wears it. I don't buy Omegas because James Bond has it on his wrist. I don't buy Omegas because they are featured on any billboards.

    I buy Omega watches, because my grandfather had one and since childhood I always thought it was the most beautiful watch in the world. I like Omega because they have great looking models, because they have fantastic heritage and they make me smile when I wear them.

    Why does it matter what they earn? It won't change the marketing, or prices of Swatches products.

    I doubt that marketing and Celebrity Ambassadors are the reason that the price has been increasing.

    NASA paid $82.50 USD for their Speedmasters in 1963. That's roughly $580 in today's dollars, but the MSRP for a Speedmaster Pro in 2011 is $4500. Split three ways it looks like Kidman, Clooney and Crawford are each getting about $1300 per watch. They are such extraordinarily beautiful people that I think it's worth it!

    A man's watch is a very cherished thing. You steal that, you might as well be stealing his soul.

    Hmmm, let's see... A house in my neighborhood was built and first sold in 1927 for $3,000. According to the website that adjusts for inflation, $3,000.00 in 1927 had the same buying power as $37,148.98 in 2011.
    But the house is currently sold at $1,200,000, (yes, that's 1.2 million US dollars) and Kidman, Clooney and Crawford are not getting their cut. What gives?

    Yes. In fact, they kinda turn me off the brand.
