We have done more about watches Omega watches is expanding brand expansion.
Is Stephen Erica is here with us the president of the -- and I was just telling you that.
Back in the day when Cindy Crawford was one of your spokesperson I wanted to do business still is that I did I had to have her lots of great she am.
But I think Cindy and that that you know now you're doing Greg Norman these are all kind of lake people -- lake is that part of why we get involved with these people.
I think so I think gives a face to -- it makes it easier for -- -- -- relate to them.
Why is it necessary -- I think it is though the competition out there and you know it's a different -- to to get to know.
You know -- -- is so it's good to have a spokesperson was then -- let's.
Talk about the watch business -- it need it how has -- been through all this because it it you know if I can't feed my kids -- could keep my old.
-- That's right now overall net realized it was a tough -- everybody knows that I think -- -- whether this home -- -- we had.
US and Japan admitted to markets that we didn't that set back but you know and so do they have -- to -- -- -- sales -- up even in this Avandia and shows -- people -- So buying watches people looking for confidence.
Looking to find that they meet the essence of the brand to pick -- it -- just -- And this is.
Fed up through when on of the track but that's remain you know -- in the ground and see how things and -- that you're helping a bunch of standalone story we we decided that the best -- -- And the view -- well and that would mean if under his but to really get a foothold in the US within open -- goes over and Fifth Avenue.
Last year in April.
Very good feedback very good results and now we have -- -- about 25 to fitted locations in the US and mine opened this week before Thanksgiving so that's a big big step.
Your price point though is is I would argue much better than say going.
To the higher and much assuming you have you know another -- -- -- right between its a 34000 dollars up to maybe 152030000.
On the citizen -- -- -- -- Any different type of -- still.
What was the consumer you're trying to get is it is at the high end -- as -- -- buying a great -- you want him to come -- -- Megan says.
Well I wouldn't total there -- other brands and I mean I think there's a big market out there and after Iowa I know that.
I -- that thing for you know would do.
I think -- that is the motivation lighted by an a -- watch you know it could be for.
And and and the reasons could be for investment reasons -- -- that he reasons different reasons.
So I think you know -- -- -- -- we have always -- -- idea.
It's election -- you don't need to you know to those variances and people 5000 dollars for that.
But I think without collection and how wide -- -- watches and and message we have -- we've we've got some pretty wide array of people.
What that watch people that watch lovers are I mean there's serious people under any serious watched Clinton and I have a cousin who has.
A shrine to his watches and his beautiful beautiful collection and I understand -- this person for men there's not a whole lot that he.
Break that your honor not only you can you change your diet change a lot.
I agree with -- -- and you know what has an instrument is moving inside is a hot which you know it's it's called -- who voted for the have -- has a story -- people talk about.
You know and ideas and and the legacy of the -- Washington brands and it's good to great it's a great -- So to watch really haven't changed much habit of doing his view is same thing same thing we've made a few modifications we think in all modesty would questions they've been allies bases and -- on the.
Still right before we talk about the solar impulse project -- -- wanna hear about that don't talk about Greg Norman Y what's Greg doing now.
Why Greg is as you know and one that cause of gulf is somebody that we had a car drivers and -- -- it felt that.
Is -- -- of the Olympics in Rio in 2016 golf is going back to the Olympics and -- we have Fisher thank you -- so we very much involved in the Olympics.
That's tonight grid who would -- very much involved and committed to get the gulf as it is right level of the Olympics he was an F spokesperson.
Also they've been trying to break so you know -- -- big market for us so I think Reagan elitism is a great night.
What is it like to be the official time keeper of the Olympics and that must do great things it's a unique position that you know what everybody says to me -- sponsors and this is not true -- -- we have there was a we have a function to fulfill.
We get paid for by the -- -- the way we -- -- that we buy back the marketing rights.
So it has a very unique situation we have the presence on on the field on screen which is unique.
And as well wise every two years great platform for the Grand Prix history fit into his office games in the -- And you know would there in London experienced investigators who doesn't love -- to we have another -- to -- twenty.
-- China China still huge major part of self.
Still analysts say and that's still going because it's too early days of -- -- weaving their long time.
It's it's a very important market you know but you know into the the figure is you know even Chinese -- -- -- -- to a very small proportion Chinese who traveled so.
As -- and this is a big -- of a long way.
Maybe because -- okay now let's talk about the solar impulse project that.
Whether you know we know we've involve them over the years with different ventures under the sea -- into the moon was who would NASA and space -- six to nine.
And -- that -- peak on bush came to us with this project -- -- this -- -- that -- these relates to the world today you know we've.
We've been to the -- -- in the Congo further out into space one they probably would do we will.
But I think we have one program is this is the energy problem and -- sort of community little way that we can media we helped develop the cockpit and landing -- demanding that the lights.
Noses under the watch the -- -- -- we do need to make a photo watch because we and mechanical watches probably more eco friendly even and so much because it.
Has nothing nothing is as you just gravity it is making it.
So we believe it's -- -- -- venture the -- now this year for the first time.
We will be -- overnight for the food stamps for the 2012.
And this guy it would and -- and he was in -- it is stored.
And I think either -- I think people look back maybe two days and maybe not that -- And the news breaking event -- may have -- fiftieth time when sort of playing the final onto it might look back and say.
I don't know why it's not a new -- that it should be I think the greatest thing I don't know who I'm so sick of hearing about solar panels they think their garbage but the notion that you could do that.
-- you thrive playing it has nothing nothing nothing Duke Energy from the Sun -- still think it's amazing that not my watch runs with nothing.
You're right they get gravity nothing I -- And I love I have to keep it moving -- you have to have them now -- I tell my kids open.
Every now and then that they have to the movement -- -- in September and death that keeps down OK but it.
But and that to me is we need more amazing the fact that you you got some good in space on nothing and to an -- is though that the review that's within.
It is and that you basically reusing it BI get out there where.
What's what's next.
Well makes me as she wanted them and also we have a -- -- is what -- -- -- now with a very special ladies again and movement.
I think women around -- world -- much more.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- There's a big market out there in the states and delightful.
A good mechanical -- who just -- And it has stated that it now did you bring.
-- -- -- -- -- That that's values above what is so bad.
Because you know why a lot of times and I've even been in the same position where I'll look at the smaller men's watches -- and his review of buying -- -- -- is going to be right.
Or even the normal size and Portland not -- eat it right and I'm iris -- all that but a smaller man's watch I would rather -- than some of the women's watches out there.
Unanimously -- you.
I think I -- as we get your degree in the -- pictures talking with that it it is okay.
You aired on what I put it -- -- -- okay.
-- -- Stephen Hackett president of Omega -- everywhere you can be at the Olympics you're in town now been found and as you rather than that opened it does go tomorrow in Chicago.
Michigan avenue -- before Thanksgiving do what Thanksgiving.
Congratulations thank you thank you for being -- I.
