Friday marked another momentous occasion at the Planet OMEGA exhibition in New York, as Daniel Craig graced the showcase with a unique appearance. After the Opening Night event featuring Nicole Kidman on Thursday, Daniel became the most recent Omega ambassador to visit the Chelsea Factory exhibit.
Present and past emblematic timepieces from the Swiss brand Planet Omega animate the illustrious brand’s illustrious history of watchmaking. Experience Omega’s complex DNA in six areas dedicated to the sports and Olympic Games: space, ocean, James Bond, friends, and precision. It will remain open until November 19.
President and CEO of OMEGA, Raynald Aeschlimann, was present at the cocktail event and escorted Daniel through the exhibition. “We cannot discuss OMEGA without mentioning James Bond,” he stated. The espionage agent has been donning our timepieces since 1995, so Daniel’s presence today would be greatly appreciated. He has significantly contributed to highlighting Omega’s accuracy, elegance, and dependability throughout his five 007 films and has even participated in our design process.”
Daniel Craig has been an Omega ambassador since 2006 when he debuted in the James Bond film Casino Royale. Throughout his attendance at the Planet Omega exhibition, he was granted access to many renowned Seamaster models that have graced the sets of movies spanning over two decades. This includes the Seamaster Diver 300M, a film device currently on loan from the Omega Museum in Switzerland, which he recently donned in No Time to Die.
Speaking at the New York event, Daniel stated, “I have always had a deep admiration for the enduring designs of Omega. I particularly appreciate how this exhibition authentically connects their vintage timepieces with their most recent models. This approach effectively showcases the distinctive nature of the brand.
The Planet OMEGA exhibition is replete with chronographs and anecdotes spanning decades. Other James Bond models, including the Seamaster Diver 300M from The World Is Not Enough (1999) and the animated 60th-anniversary edition that debuted last year, are among the highlights to examine up close.
