Omega has recently tapped not just one but two incredible actors, Bridgerton star Jonathan Bailey and Spiderman Andrew Garfield, as the “friend of the brand”.
Widely known for his role as Anthony in the Netflix series Bridgerton, Jonathan Bailey makes his debut while flaunting the silver Aqua Terra timepiece with a cooling sandstone dial.
Omega welcomes Jonathan Bailey and Andrew Garfield into the family
According to WWD, the Bridgerton star has expressed, “I’m thrilled to be joining the Omega family, not only because of their dedication to their craft but also because of the ethos of creativity, kindness and brilliance that exists so profoundly in their team and the way they work.”
The president and chief executive officer of Omega, Raynald Aeschlimann, has explained in a statement that the “excellence was there from the start. He worked hard to earn his place on the world stage and continues to develop and evolve. These are values in line with our own. We’re proud to have him in the family.”
Bailey is set to appear in Ron Nyswaner’s series titled “Fellow Travelers” and in Jon M. Chu’s “Wicked” film starring Cynthia Erivo, Ariana Grande and Michelle Yeoh.
Andrew Garfield and his relationship with Omega
This announcement was a long-time coming for Andrew Garfield. The superstar has made multiple appearances donning OMEGA timepieces before. Furthermore, the Tick, Tick. . .Boom! actor graced the 2022 94th Annual Academy Awards with a beautiful timepiece that matched his Saint Laurent burgundy tuxedo. The watch in question was the Omega Speedmaster ‘57, inspired by the first Speedmaster from 1957.
In case you missed out, the actor wore the Omega De Ville Prestige with a Blue Dial at the 2023 SAG Awards and the Omega De Ville Tresor at the Oscars 2023.
Not limited to the red carpet, the charming celebrity was also seen with the Omega De Ville Prestige at Wimbledon 2022 – what an incredible yet timeless range of collections, we might add.
As a friend of the brand, Andrew Garfield continues to captivate the world with his incredible performance. We look forward to seeing what’s next for the actor and Omega.
