Today is the final day of our first ever Interview Week – a week we spent giving you unparalleled access to some of the most powerful men in the industry. Our last installment features a man in control of one of the biggest and most famous watch brands in history, the brand that went to the moon – Omega Watches.
Stephen Urquhart is the president and CEO of Omega, and in this interview we ask him about what prompted to the decision to open thirty boutiques in the United States alone, his view on the changing demands of watch buyers, why the prices of Omega seem to be not so slowly creeping higher by the year, who he views as his biggest competitors (hint: one begins with a “C,” the other with an “R”), why Omega decided to produce jewelry, leather goods, and even cologne (there is a very frank answer to that). We also ask about the future of Omega’s story, after so much of it has been reliant on NASA and the moon landing for the past 40 years.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this exclusive, in-depth interview with Stephen Urquhart, president and CEO of Omega.
