Captured in a new series of black and white portraits and videos, the Swiss watchmaker OMEGA is revealing the unique personalities of its inspiring female ambassadors. In this intimate campaign, each woman is shown with her choice of watch – and the words she lives her life by.
My Choice is the latest continuation of OMEGA’s historic bond with women. For more than 100 years, the company has delivered ladies’ timepieces of true reliability, beauty and versatility – helping to support everyone from nurses and aviators, through to artists and actresses.
Today, OMEGA is proud to be represented around the world by a strong family of female stars. For the latest shoot, the brand was joined by the actresses Nicole Kidman, Zoë Kravitz, So-hee Han and Dongyu Zhou as well as the models Kaia Gerber and Kiko Mizuhara, and legendary athlete Allyson Felix. Free to express themselves through style and words, each star was given the space to show their true character.
Spirit, talent, power and beauty. These gifted individuals from diverse backgrounds and multiple disciplines have all excelled in their own way. They share a drive to succeed, an openness to experience and an appreciation of quality.
The result brings together a selection of classic yet fast moving portraits. In front of the camera, they each show the woman they are today, yet also the confidence they have for the future. Wherever time takes them, as with women from all walks of life, OMEGA will be on hand to celebrate each hour.
The Women and their Watches
“Being free to make choices can be a mystery. But that’s magical, and I love that side of me.”
Actress, director, model, Zoë can do it all – brilliantly. A singular talent with her own take on style, Zoë Kravitz has earned high praise and loud applause for performances in The Divergent Series, the Fantastic Beasts films, as well as the hit HBO show Big Little Lies, for which she earned a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination. She also stole the show as Catwoman in The Batman. All this and still so much to come. Small wonder Zoë Kravitz is one of the most sought-after individuals in the entertainment industry.
“I get to be powerful, playful, try on moods. Looks, eras, styles… but at the heart of it all… is me.”
Nicole Kidman’s list of awards is a long-read. Oscars, Golden Globes, BAFTA’s, SAG Awards. Hard earned and well deserved tributes to her talent as an actress and producer. In addition to bringing scripted lines gloriously into life, she has used her own words and voice to speak up for the rights of women and children. Nicole Kidman is a phenomenon. A woman with a warm heart and a wicked sense of humour. It’s a huge honour to have her in the family.
“Being yourself is complicated – and that’s a good thing.”
This fashion super nova is one of the most down-to-earth. The proud Californian has secured multiple runway appearances with top designers such as Burberry, Calvin Klein and Versace. She also has a talent for acting, earning roles in TV shows Sister Cities, American Horror Stories and The Palisades. Effortlessly cool, yet always turning heads, Kaia has a natural energy and style that you can’t help but love.
“To truly be yourself, you must be willing to change and grow. Time will reveal all.”
Determined to succeed from an early age, Kiko Mizuhara began modelling at 12 years old and has been building an impressive career ever since. As well as gracing the covers of multiple magazines including Vogue, Kiko has dazzled on the big screen, with an acting career that began with the film Norwegian Wood in 2010. For good measure, she has also built her own designer brand “OK”, producing fashion worn by several notable celebrities. Ms. Mizuhara is the ultimate multitasker.
“It’s not about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself. I like to be open to possibilities – keep things moving.”
In top-level competitive athletics, it takes passion, commitment and personal sacrifice just to be good enough to show up. Allyson Felix is the most decorated athlete in the history of track and field. How’s that for strength of character? LA born Allyson is an inspiration to women determined to cross the line first. A sporting legend, with a trophy cabinet filled with gold and huge reserves of positive energy and enthusiasm.
“I know who I am, where I came from, and where I’m going – at all times.”
So-hee Han shines too bright for life in the shadows. After success in a number of supporting roles, the South Korean star staked her claim to the central characters, earning starring roles in multiple series, including Nevertheless, My Name, and The World of the Married, for which she received wide recognition and acclaim. A winner of multiple awards for her craft, Han is a talent to watch. A woman in the spotlight with her own clear view of the future.
“In many cases, it’s best just to be yourself. Let everyone see your uniqueness.”
An accomplished actress, capable of delivering convincing and critically acclaimed performances ranging in genres from crime thriller to romantic comedy, Dongyu Zhou is the youngest actress to have been honoured with the three most significant accolades in the history of Chinese film. Her list of top prizes include Best Actress at the 53rd Golden Horse Awards in 2016 for Soul Mate, and best actress for Better Days at the 39th Hong Kong Film Awards and 33rd Golden Rooster Awards. Even a screen veteran would be proud of that list – and Zhou is just getting started.
The Mini Trésor
This compact 26 mm timepiece is defined by its stainless steel case with diamonds along the curves, as well as a domed dial in off-white “Grand Feu” enamel. The rose coloured Roman numerals perfectly match the red floral Toile de Jouy “double tour” strap, which wraps twice around the wrist.
The Mini Trésor
Catching the eye in full 18K Moonshine™ Gold, this 26 mm watch offers something unique in every detail. Along with diamonds that pave the case, a silk-like pattern has been used to decorate the dial, as well as the mesh bracelet with its special foldover clasp.
The Trésor in Malachite
A watch that embraces the perfect blend of Moonshine™ Gold and malachite. Creating the hypnotic green dial, malachite is a decorative stone that has been cherished since antiquity. In this timepiece, its graceful hue and patterns are the ideal complement to OMEGA’s exclusive yellow gold alloy.
The Constellation Small Seconds
The burgundy dial of this exquisite timepiece offers a subtle nod to the historic colour of the OMEGA brand. Here, it is further enhanced by circles of diamonds, along with a 34 mm case and bracelet design in full 18K Sedna™ Gold. Iconic Constellation features can be seen in the claws and half-moon facets.
The Constellation Aventurine
As well as a beautiful case in 18K Sedna™ Gold, this 29 mm watch is distinguished by its blue dial made from natural Aventurine stone. This is the name given to an authentic quartz mineral created by forces under the Earth. The shimmering appearance has been loved and revered since ancient times.
The Constellation Master Chronometer
With its sun-brushed champagne dial, this 29 mm watch is OMEGA’s choice for the most special celebrations. It has a full 18K yellow gold design that truly stands out on the wrist, while at its centre, the Swiss watchmaker has included a Co Axial Master Chronometer movement. Beauty and precision all in one.
The Constellation Master Chronometer
An iconic watch, beautifully modernised. This 29 mm version is made from 18K yellow gold with a mother-of-pearl dial and 11 diamond hour markers. As well as including a circle of diamonds around the bezel, the heart of the timepiece is powered by a precise and reliable Co-Axial Master Chronometer movement.
The Constellation 28 mm
There’s a pure individual quality to this stainless steel timepiece, thanks to its striking blush rose dial. To enhance the pastel effect, OMEGA has used the same colour to highlight the engraved Roman numerals, while the hands, hour markers and applied elements are all crafted in 18K white gold.
The Constellation 28 mm
Choice is important when it comes to watches. In this pastel collection, there is something to suit every personal style, including this version with a patchouli blossom dial and matching bezel. To keep track of time, OMEGA has placed a diamond at every hour, along with 18K white gold hands.
The Seamaster Aqua Terra
The Aqua Terra is a symbol of OMEGA’s passion for the sea, and delivers a design that is perfect for an ocean lifestyle. This 38 mm model in stainless steel and 18K Sedna™ Gold particularly stands out due to its waved blue dial with sailboat hour markers and a porthole date window at 6 o’clock.
The Speedmaster 38 mm
Refining the legendary OMEGA Speedmaster has resulted in this 38 mm model made from 18K Sedna™ Gold. The taupe-brown leather strap and dual bezel are signature features of the design, but most alluring of all is the “cappuccino” coloured dial with oval shaped subdials and a date window at 6 o’clock.
