Omega On The Red Carpet – 2023 Edition

As the red carpets rolled out for the biggest stars in 2023 at award ceremonies and galas, Omega made its presence felt to millions of viewers and horological enthusiasts. Omega watches, with their unwavering elegance, have been gracing the carpet through celebrities for years. We find the red carpet looking extra glamorous with several Omega icons from Speedmaster to the De Ville Prestige, worn by some of the most popular names in the movie industry. Omega’s versatile designs have become a steady stream of inspiration for stars walking the red carpet at high-octane events.

With its unwavering commitment to quality and craftsmanship, Omega watches exude reliability, making an effortless choice for celebrities seeking to make a statement at any event. Whether a vintage or contemporary model, an Omega watch can elevate any outfit to the next level of sophistication. It’s no wonder that Omega remains a trusted brand for celebrities who want to make a lasting impression on the red carpet.

The Golden Globes, 2023

The 80th Golden Globes Awards, held in January 2023, was a stage set for and ready to showcase a riot of watch collections from Omega. The stars were out in full force at the ceremony, and OMEGA watches were shining just as brightly on the wrists of some of Hollywood’s most famous faces. The luxury watch brand was the choice for many of the nominees, presenters, and attendees.

Ke Huy Quan

At the Golden Globes, it wasn’t just his portrayal of a doting spouse and laundromat owner, Waymon Wang, in the mind-boggling Everything Lost All at Once that stole the hearts of the audience. Ke Huy Quan’s emotional acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor left everyone with teary eyes. He was spotted wearing an Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Master Chronometer in 34mm. The watch, made from stainless steel and 18K yellow gold, belongs to the De Ville collection launched by the Maison in 1967 as a smaller and dressier alternative to the sportier and bulkier editions of Seamaster and Speedmaster lines.

The De Ville evolved to encompass a variety of styles and complications — from classic to elegant to modern and sporty — and introduced a wide range of lines. Among them, the Prestige worn by Ke Huy Quan was first introduced in 1994, becoming one of the iconic lines from Omega. It features simple and elegant dials with timeless elegance. The watch adorning Quan’s wrist has a PVD Moonshine gold dial featuring a sunburst finish, complementing hands, and alternating Roman numerals and cabochon hour markers. A date window at six o’clock and a dotted minute track on the outer ring keep the timepiece looking clean yet replete. The Master Chronometer certified timepiece is driven by the OMEGA Master Co-axial Calibre 8800, which can be admired through the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal caseback.

Andrew Garfield

Andrew Garfield arrived for Gloden Globes looking dapper in a rust-orange Zegna suit paired with a black shirt and a David Yurman ring. But that wasn’t all; a timepiece from the Omega Aqua Terra Shades series peeked through under his sleeves time and again as he posed for the paparazzi. The timepiece features a symmetrical case in polished stainless steel and a wave-edged design on the back. It made an excellent choice for the event. Its saffron dial, which perfectly complemented Garfield’s suit, came furnished in brass with a sun-brushed finish featuring a date window at six o’clock.

Eddie Redmayne

The Good Nurse actor, nominated for Best Supporting Role, was seen wearing a Valentino suit and on his was the elegant De Ville Trésor in 18k Sedna gold. De Ville Trésor was introduced in 1949 as a simple three-hand watch with a slim profile and the famous 30mm calibre. Today, the line features more advanced mechanical movements in their timepieces. Redmayne’s classic 40mm Trésor has a blue strap and a complementing blue dial. The watch has complications like a power reserve display at noon, a small seconds display at six, and 18K Sedna gold hands and indexes. It is powered by a certified Co-Axial Chronometer calibre 8935, visible through the transparent caseback.

Barry Keoghan was nominated for the best supporting actor at the 80th Golden Globes for playing the simple Dominic Kearney in The Banshees of Inisherin, which won the Globe for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. He chose to wrap his wrist in Speedmaster ‘57 chronograph for the night. The 40.5mm timepiece is inspired by the legendary 1957 model, featuring a stainless steel case and blue dial. It has rhodium-plated hour markers and Broad Arrow hands coated in Super-LumiNova.

With a date window at six and chronograph registers in a horizontal configuration, the watch also has an easy timezone function for adjusting hour hands to different time zones without stopping the watch.

Academy Awards, 2023

The magic of Hollywood was in full swing as the red carpet was rolled out for the 95th Academy Awards. The most celebrated event in the film industry, the Oscars, was hosted once again at the iconic Dolby Theatre in the heart of Los Angeles, with the brightest stars on the silver screen gathered to be honoured for their illustrious work and performances. Akin to the Golden Globes, it was impossible not to spot exquisite Omega watches adorning the wrists of the industry’s most talented stars.

Brendan Fraser

The 95th Academy Awards was a night to remember, filled with unforgettable moments and emotional speeches. But perhaps one of the most poignant moments of the evening was when Brendan Fraser accepted the Best Actor award for his performance in The Whale, marking a triumphant return to the silver screen. Fraser was sporting a timepiece that perfectly captured his rugged yet refined persona. It was the legendary Speedmaster Chronoscope from Omega.

The Omega Speedmaster is a watch that has been worn by astronauts, explorers, and adventurers alike, thanks to its unparalleled durability and precision. And yet, despite its tough exterior, it is also a watch that exudes a sense of timeless sophistication and elegance. As did Fraser’s choice that came with a dial featuring three distinctive timing scales in the 1940s ‘snail’ design, including a tachymeter scale, a pulsometer scale, and a telemeter scale. This Omega Speedmaster in size 43mm was the perfect complement to his classic black Giorgio Armani tuxedo. The stainless steel case with a silvery dial and a blue leather strap added a touch of masculinity to the overall look.

Ke Huy Quan

Amongst the winners was Ke Huy Quan, who delivered a stirring and heartfelt acceptance speech after winning Best Supporting Actor for his captivating performance in Everything, Everywhere, All at Once. Accompanying him on this historic moment was the stunning Omega Globemaster, fitted with a sleek black leather strap. It was the perfect accompaniment to his timeless black single-breasted tux by Giorgio Armani.

Featuring an opaline silvery dial reminiscent of the first 1952 Constellation model, this watch in 39mm is the epitome of timeless design and innovative technology. It features a transparent caseback, including a central Observatory medallion and exposing the calibre 8900. With a reputation for precision and reliability that is second to none, it is the perfect choice for the discerning gentleman who demands nothing less than the very best.
