They must be pushing the boat out with the advertising budget as it was on a lot during the international T20’s on SKY Sports.

I've heard reports of it being on Channel 5 as well, and it is also available to view on YouTube;-

I think that’s a really good commercial! It shows off the watch quite well. Haven’t seen it on air here in the US though. :lol:

I expect this will result in a quantum leap in sales, especially of the compressor.

Thanks Guy.

Nothing for anyone to moan about there. A good effort. :thumbup:

I wouldn’t put your house on it, Neil. Though I for one am fully in agreement with you.

I claim to be relatively impervious to advertisements. I try as far as possible to avoid watching them, listening to them or reading them. But that is rather a good one. It is well put together, a little less tongue in cheek than the first attempt, pretty credible and I don’t find it annoying.

er, you have been here before, haven't you?
Though I agree, this is in another league to the dire first TV ad.

The only adverts I tend to see are on YouTube, where you can't fast forward them and are forced to watch and wait.

Haven't seen the original or this on SKY, although my other half noticed the C60 Sapphire ad in the Summer.

Overall I think the ad looks and sounds better than #1 and I would imagine the watch will look perfect for viewers watching approx 2 Metres to the left of the screen. :silent:

That offset looks really bad in that screenshot! I still find it staggering that it got that far. What were they thinking?

That's what the latest and future price increases are for...

The advert has just popped up on SKY Sports Cricket during coverage of England vs Australia's 1st ODI.

Most impressive when seen on a 42" 4K compatible TV.

It popped up last Sunday early on in the George Clarke "National Trust unlocked" programme on channel 4. I usually record commercial channel stuff so I can flick through the adverts and as I was doing so, spotted the advert. Interesting choice as to where CW see their buyers coming from as I haven't seen too many discussions on the forum on historic properties (though i am fairly new here...). Still, I suppose the link between architecture and watch design can be made without too much mental agility.
