    Tissot in new Audi commercial?

    I just finished watching the new Audi S8 comercial and at first glance I thought the driver was wearing a Tissot. After watching it again I'm not too sure. It's at the 13 second mark.

    Does anyone know what watch this is?

    The dial is sterile. No markings regarding brand. Then again, it could have been taken out in post production.

    It might be a Tissot. Could have been a situation in which the director decided he needed a wrist-shot of an elegant watch to help set the dramatic tone of the commercial. Looked about . . . Found the best-looking watch on the wrist of a member of the crew. Perhaps it even belonged to the director himself. So, that's the one they used. But in this day & age, you can't give free advertising to any company. Plus, perhaps Audi wouldn't want to share the spotlight with certain watch brands. Easiest fix is edit out the brand name from the dial.

    It looks a lot like a Fromanteel (a Dutch brand).



    There are some very very minor differences though, probably on purpose.
    A beautiful watch though, and not expensive either!

    That's the watch indeed. Just the text is completely removed from the watch. The numeration 1-3-5-7-8-9-11-12 is quite unusual, the polished crown as well.

    Yeah the "10" and "2" are missing. Coincidentally the positions most people use on the steering wheel "10 and 2".

    Did you ever get one? I've been looking at them for awhile.
