Lancaster Jeweller Becomes Omega Grand Ambassador

Banks Lyon Jewellers Store Manager, Myles Harrison, underwent a week-long intensive course to become one of only a handful of Omega Grand Ambassadors in the UK.

Lancaster Jeweller Becomes Omega Grand Ambassador

Myles was one of two representatives from the UK in the group of 14 on the course in Switzerland. The training makes him the only Grand Ambassador for Omega between Liverpool and Glasgow.

Becoming a Grand Ambassador means that Myles now holds the highest level of official certification from Omega, which highlights his in-depth expertise of the brand and its timepieces.

Myles said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be a Grand Ambassador for Omega after such a rigorous week of training in Switzerland. To be one of only a handful of Grand Ambassadors in the country truly is a privilege.”

“I had a fantastic week travelling around Switzerland, learning more in-depth knowledge about the Omega brand and visiting the internationally renowned Omega museum and Omega movement factory.”

Myles became an Ambassador for Omega back in 2012 and has continued to work towards the Grand Ambassador title over the last six years.

After meeting all the criteria for the Grand Ambassadorship, Myles was put forward for formal training in Switzerland, alongside just one other UK representative.

Myles went on to add: “We had a watchmaking session with a Master Omega Watchmaker as part of the trip in the Biel Headquarters. We were given watch parts – including a disassembled movement, case, dial, hands and strap – and had to build it from scratch.

“It really was an incredible week in Switzerland; I learnt so much about the Omega brand and am excited to pass on my knowledge and expertise to Banks Lyon’s customers.”
