Omega DeVille Hour Vision - Daniel Craig
In this promotional photo, Daniel Craig is wearing an Omega DeVille Hour Vision blue.
Omega is working in cooperation with actor and brand ambassador Daniel Craig on a creative initiative in support of ORBIS International and its Flying Eye Hospital in the fight against preventable blindness.
The special Hour Vision Blue (steel on leather strap, modelnumber 418.104.22.168.03.001) has been created to celebrate the partnership, and Omega has guaranteed that at least one million U.S. dollars from its sale will be donated to ORBIS, an organization which delivers eye care to some of the world’s most remote and developing regions.
Daniel Craig is looking forward to visiting ORBIS’ Flying Eye Hospital with Omega. “I think that it’s important to do all that we can to draw attention to the invaluable work that ORBIS is doing. By visiting them in the field and seeing their team at work, I hope we will be able to make more people aware of the issue of preventable blindness and to let them know how much of a difference they can make.”
“...we will make more people aware of the issue of preventable blindness...”
Since it was founded in 1982, ORBIS has carried out programs in 88 countries to provide medical training, tools and technology for local partners to address the tragedy of avoidable blindness in their communities. As a result of ORBIS’ support, more than 12 million individuals have received medical care and more than a quarter of a million eye care professionals have been trained.
The Omega Hour Vision Blue
The Hour Vision Blue wristwatch is a special edition of the elegant Hour Vision. It has a classic 41 mm stainless steel case and is equipped with Omega’s Co-Axial caliber 8500, the movement that signaled a revolution in series-produced mechanical watchmaking. The movement can be viewed through the sapphire crystal on the caseback.
Adding distinction to the timepiece is its specially designed sun-brushed blue dial. It has 18 Ct white gold facetted hour, minute and seconds hands coated with white Super-LumiNova and features a date window at the 3 o’clock position.
