Baselworld 2013 … I just spoke to Stephen Urquhart, the President of Omega

Good evening from Basel to you all. I just met and spoke to Stephen Urquhart, the President of Omega. It was interesting to hear how he sees the future of that so dynamic brand.

I know Stephen Urquhart for many many years now and he is one of the driving forces behind the success of Omega. Open for everything new and innovative he and his team develop  the brand step by step to one day become the number one in the market. A lot has been done yet and a lot is still to do. I asked Stephen Urquhart how he sees “his” brand these days …

Please enjoy our little conversation!

  • Mr. Urquhart’s final comment really rings true to me… what better ambassadors could anyone want?

    I have been considering a speedmaster in part because of its heritage but also due to the Daniels escapement. Now to hear that it will have some future technological enhancements makes it all the more attractive.


  • A most impressive interview with Mr. Urquhart. He sounds so down to earth and realistic as well as being totally at ease.

    Great stuff. Thanks for posting.

    Just wish I was in Basel. ‘-)
