Omega opulence - the Robert Wagner edition.

The always suave and debonaire Robert Wagner is the epitome of taste and sophistication. I mean he was Jonathan Hart for cryin' out loud! So, he would know from nice watches I presume. This 1983 Omega Watch ads reads,

Omega, when you can have whatever you want. Introducing the Omega Manhattan. The finest quartz chronometer money can buy. 

This ad really cracks me up. If Robert is having "whatever he wants" - I suppose Omega is on par with takeout Chinese and some Asti Spumante? I'm sure it was super-classy pink champagne... nothing but the best.
