The thoroughly modern Prince Williams’ Omega Seamaster Professional has been part of his professional and personal wardrobe throughout his military career, following him into his civilian challenges. Regardless whether you find yourself a Republican or a Royalist it’s difficult to turn your nose up at a hard working Royal. In particular, the Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, the elder son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and the late Diana, Princess of Wales and second in the line of succession to the British throne.
Educated the expensive way, William has never shirked responsibility and never been afraid to show empathy and compassion for those less fortunate. During his gap year, for example, he traveled to Chile, Belize, and Africa carrying out works to help local populations
Returning to his post after graduation in 2006, he completed his 44 weeks of training as an officer cadet and was commissioned in the Blues and Royals regiment, the cavalry regiment of the British Army. By 2008 he had qualified as a pilot after earning his wings at Royal Air Force College Cranwell, and proceeded to take helicopter flying training to become a full-time pilot with the RAF Search and Rescue.
Currently, he serves in a civilian capacity as a search and rescue pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA), based at Cambridge Airport, England.
It’s good to see a real life hero going out and taking care of business while rockin the Omega. Yeah, there’s nothing wrong with celebrities who pretend to do daring deeds in action movies for example, but there’s no substitute for the real deal, right? Although I consider myself a European and above the nationalistic outlook of the modern times, I still feel a slight twinge of pride as I think of the new breed of modern Royals.
It’s the 60th anniversary of the celebrated Omega Speedmaster made famous by Buzz Aldrin on Apollo 11 Moon landing, and Jomashop is celebrating with offering up 42% off Omega models, plus a limited edition Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch with a 36% discount from their store, or click here to read my Jomashop review.
