Omega Documentary Orbis International
Omega continues its contribution to the Orbis International organization by presenting a trailer of its second documentary entitled “The Hospital in the Sky”. One of the brand’s well known ambassadors, Cindy Crawford and her 13 year old daughter, Kaia, will shine a spotlight on the life changing treatments the organization has performed on young patients during its two-week programme in Turjilo, Peru. This documentary snippet will tease viewers until the full version of the fill will be available later this year.
“ At the local airport the baggage handlers await a unique visitor. An aircraft unlike any other in the world. An aircraft that can perform miracles. It is a totally self-sufficient, fully operational flying eye hospital.” – Cindy Crawford
To commemorate this special and life changing contribution and partnership, Omega has released four special watches. It has also pledged to donate a portion of the proceeds from each of these striking timepieces to the Orbis International and its Flying Eye Hospital.
