    Your thoughts on this Speedmaster ad?

    I was scrolling through Omega's official Instagram today and came across their latest Speedmaster ad.

    Any thoughts?

    I for one once held my Speedmasters, and Omega too for that matter, in a much higher regard, before the over-advertising that seems to be plentiful as of late.

    Hahah, not quite.

    I just feel disappointed seeing the kind of advertising Omega is pulling off these days. Sometimes less can be more (Rolex).

    I'm guessing this is in line with their attempt to appeal to millennials?

    Omega watches have plenty of character and class on their own. Their innovations (METAS etc) are strong and enough to drive the brand forward.
    As a huge Omega fan myself, I feel its unfortunate (in my opinion at least) that their marketing department sees the need for these kinds of dare I say, degrading advertising.

    Omega CEO Raynald Aeschlimann on 60 Years of Speedmaster › WatchTime - USA's No.1 Watch Magazine

    Because THIS^^ guy claims that Millennials are dropping more dollars on Omega than the previous generation, so he wants the brand to appeal to them, not the OP. Next time they ought to take a poll.

    Well it's a picture of a 12 year old wearing a cheap blazer and a camera he probably couldn't use if I put a gun to his head. Ironically the name and camera likeness is incorporated into an app that millennials and others who have never seen such a device use frequently. Also, a watch that he couldn't afford and by the time he is old enough to appreciate and afford a piece, Omega will have upped the price to that of a car.
