Virtuozity - - WATCH NEWS -

In his lat est sci­ence fic­tion adventure, Tom­mor­row­land, Ge­orge Clooney, an Omega brand am­bas­sador, wore a 1958 Con­stel­la­tion Au­to­matic Chronome­ter for his role as Frank Walker.

“With ev­ery sec­ond that ticks by, the fu­ture is run­ning out”. These words spo­ken by Ge­orge Clooney in his new film set the tone for the ac­tion-packed story about mem­ory, des­tiny, and time.

The words ap­ply just as much to the watch as they do to the film. Omega said that it was highly ap­pro­pri­ate that the brand shares a part in the tale, seen on Clooney’s wrist in the form of a Con­stel­la­tion Au­to­matic Chronome­ter from the late 1950s.

The Con­stel­la­tion line was cre­ated ear­lier that decade, with pre­ci­sion as its lead­ing qual­ity. How­ever, even in a mod­ern, sci-fi set­ting, the at­trac­tive sim­plic­ity of the design makes it look at home on screen as it would have when it was first cre­ated. Omega adds that the watch shows an en­dur­ing style that is still seen in to­day’s mod­els.
