The Speedmaster is a watch unlike any other. It's been worn by some of the worlds more courageous explorers and been part of world history. It goes without saying that it also has a very dedicated following of fans. When it came time to upgrade it's mechanism with modern improvement we wanted to make sure it kept it's original soul.
It was the beginning of COVID and since these men are all over 80 years old, health and safety was naturally a concern. Each shoot was conducted by a local crew who I briefed individually beforehand. Since special effects and locations were heavily limited, we concentrated more on content and message.
Aside from managing the project, I also wrote the interviews, arranged the shoot which were in 3 locations around the USA. Later I edited the footage and delivered the material in various lengths for social media and YouTube channels.
The message had to be interesting, and make use of the special access we had to these three men. So our intension was to make a simple and down to Earth collection of films (excuse the pun) whoosh were informative and made th e viewer appreciate how heroic those endeavours were.
I'm proud of the outcome because it fits within the OMEGA brand tone. It s always a privilege to interview people like them because they loved historic moments, and capturing their impressions feels like recording history.
