Omega’s Marketing: Goofy With A Side Of WTF

Posted on 19 September 2011 by John Biggs

Watch that video: excellent stuff, right? Everyone loves sharks and watches and dudes in wetsuits. You figure “OK, this is a watch ad, maybe it’s a bit of adventure, some deep sea diving, fine. I’ll watch.” Then you realize it’s some dude in a cage feeding a shark. The last time I cared about that little interaction was when I was about 10 watching 3-2-1 Contact on PBS. But wait, there’s more!

Golf legend Greg Norman has long been known as the Great White Shark due to his blond hair, his fearlessness on the course and his aggressive playing style. The OMEGA ambassador recently ventured to North Neptune Island for a close encounter with the other great white shark — the one of Jaws fame. This video documents their historic underwater meeting.

Hublot Opens South Korean Boutique, I Don’t Care

Posted on 23 August 2011 by John Biggs


Some dude, some lady, and some other dude cut some ribbon.

This, sadly, is what amounts to news to most watch companies. Don’t get me wrong: I love Hublot. When/if I’m rich I’ll buy a Big Bang.

Posted on 19 August 2011 by John Biggs

With a name like Pineapple and a trade dress that looks like an iPod nano with the clip cut off, you can tell the gents behind Pineapple watches aren’t very well-versed on trademark law. But lets, for a moment, pretend it won’t be a problem.

Hands on with the Ulysse Nardin Chariman

Posted on 06 June 2010 by John Biggs

How much would you pay for an Android phone? $99? $199? Maybe $299 with contract?

How about $50,000. As you recall, the Ulysse Nardin Chairman is a freaking $50,000 phone. It’s only in beta right now, but it will run Android 2.1 and come in multiple styles including a model covered with diamonds. The box, as you’ll see in the video, is nutso too. It’s basically a dock with speakers and a USB port.

The phone is made for the ultrarich. As the charming young lady who showed it to us explained, it’s for folks who can’t bring their Ferraris into the club and need something equally ostentatious.
