Coming from that experience to meeting with Omega watches then

Therefore, I immediately dismissed the concept outright. It was not until I met the Omega representative at the London Salon QP that i decided to give it a chance. I was given the watch to play with for a few weeks to see what I thought of it.
Coming from that experience to meeting with Omega then, I was in a better position to find out what the company was all about, and what it would do to revitalize the watch industry. I say that because in the time I had with the watch, I certainly http://www.waxreplica.com/replica-omega-seamaster-watches-sale-for-uk.html did feel that compared to the state of the art black slab I had on my wrist, the tide of "me too" round cases and hour and minute handed watches that dominate the industry did come across as rather staid and boring.
Omega is obviously a watch lover. As the former Omega, he single-handedly pulled the brand from irrelevance to a brand that even some lay people had heard of. What became of Omega after that is a matter of gossip, but the man made an impressionable mark no doubt. Thierry is experienced in the art of injecting life into a brand.
Standing at the helm of Omega did therefore seem like an inspired choice for Nataf. Here is a watch concept that depending on the creative direction, is either dead in the water or a pioneer in new things to come. I hazard a guess that with Thierry, the latter http://www.waxreplica.com/replica-hublot-big-bang-watches-sale-for-uk.html a distinct possibility.
The Omega moment, as he describes in the video, is that feeling that comes from allowing previous expectations to disengage, and opening oneself to a new concept. He told me that he had the same feeling I had when he first came to the Omega watch. It was only in the wearing and the experiencing of the watch that he started to realize what it was all about.
In fact, it would be better if you heard it directly from Thierry himself in the video, as he speaks in a manner that conveys this feeling that i cannot do any justice to in this article.
I came away from the meeting with a positive feeling of what the Omega watch represents http://www.waxreplica.com/replica-cartier-pasha-watches-sale-for-uk.html and what it could be for the future. Despite the fact that the brand is still finding its feet, the new vision of what it promises is definitely winning fans around the world. In a market dominated by the mechanical movement, the enduring question is whether it is a foolhardy decision to create and sell anything different. In the case of Omega and Thierry... whatever they do will be worth paying attention to.
Once again, as an update to this article, Nataf is no longer the Omega as of January 2013. It was a very quick time in office.
