British actor Eddie Redmayne has joined the ranks of Omega's Screen Legends – George Clooney, Daniel Craig, Nicole Kidman, Zhang Ziyi and Abhishek Bachchan – and become an international ambassador for the luxury Swiss watch brand.

"I have worn Omega for a number of years, so to be made an official ambassador for the brand on a global level is very exciting," the Oscar-winner said. "To join a brand whose own credentials include the only watch to be officially certified by NASA, and the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games is an honour."

His first profile photo as ambassador is so... Eddie. From his sheepish smile to his endearingly awkward collar-holding pose... sorry, we gush.

"We are absolutely delighted to welcome Eddie to the Omega family," Omega president Stephen Urquhart said. "He brings true elegance and integrity, and is incredibly humble about his success – something that sits perfectly with the Omega spirit. We very much look forward to working together."
