    For sure, the person depicted in the ad didn't buy the watch for himself, but he might be one of those privileged sort who routinely receive such things as gifts, and likely views it as an entitlement. Perhaps Omega is suggesting that their product is suitable for occasions when you might want to pamper someone?

    It has that creepy Calvin Klein feel to it. And he looks depressed wearing his Speedy.

    Because he wanted a Rolex and his grandparents bought him some stupid watch that you HAVE to wind to get it to work. On top of that most of the people who actually used the watch are dead because they are old and who wants to go to space anyway because they have no internet or Starbucks so space is dumb...

    are we all certain that's a male and not a female in the ad? Clothing seems to be female and the face is definitely androgynous.

    I actually saw this on instagram. I had a similar reaction too.

    Just doesn't work in my opinion. First of all, it doesn't help that I have no idea whom the person is. Is he famous? Then, the camera. Looks like a cheap "trend" style camera.(not quality) Plus, the way he holds it gives off a "I don't care" vibe. The expression on his face is anything but compelling. Furthermore, his attire is confusing. Are his sleeves rolled up, or do they just normally come to that length.

    Big miss Omega.

    If they want to make an appeal to nostalgia they'd be better off banking on the Speedmaster's history than wrapping it around other anachronistic flotsam.

    And I am (barely) a millennial.

    It looks like something that belongs on the rich kids of instagram page.
