Omega has tapped English actor Eddie Redmayne to front the brand’s latest campaign for their Seamaster Aqua Terra watch. This is what Omega has to say about appointing the actor as their new brand ambassador:
“As with the Aqua Terra, he [Redmayne] favours timeless design, while embracing fine tailoring, bold colours and slick combinations. As the new Aqua Terra collection sails into boutiques, there is perhaps no better role model than Eddie Redmayne. On land or at sea, he seems perfectly at home with Omega‘s newest watches.”
Redmayne made his career breakthrough after winning an Academy Award for Best Actor for portraying Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything (2014). A year later, he earned another Academy Award nomination in the same category for his transgender artist role as Einar Wegener/Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl. He was last seen in the Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in 2016.
