OMEGA awards 'best player' at Swiss Embassy Polo Trophy
Official timekeeper of Polo in India, OMEGA forges closer ties with the sport
New Delhi, Delhi, India

OMEGA, the prestigious Swiss Watch Company, today forged its commitment towards Polo, a sport innately linked with the cultural traditions of India. At the Swiss Polo trophy to be held on Sunday, February 10, OMEGA awarded the best player Sameer Suhag with an OMEGA watch, commemorating the brilliant performance. The watch was awarded by Mr G Kannan, Deputy General Manager, The Swatch Group, India.

OMEGA has signed a five-year contract with the Indian Polo Association (IPA), and is the 'official timekeeper' and official watch for the sport in India. This agreement was firmed in December 2000, and since then, the brand has and will continue to support the royal sport.

The grand 'OMEGA Polo Challenge' was held at the Jaipur Polo Ground, New Delhi in March last year. Brand Ambassador Shahrukh Khan, and brand spokesperson Sonali Bendre were officially present at the match. The event involved four polo teams, named after the four prestigious OMEGA collections, Constellation, Seamaster, Speedmaster and DeVille, competing for the trophy. Maharani Gayatri Devi of Jaipur gave away the awards, and the event was attended by the polo enthusiasts and glitteratti of the city.

OMEGA's association with sports dates back to 1932, when it was named official timekeeper of all Olympic games disciplines for the first time. In India, the link between OMEGA and Polo is inherent. As a niche cultural sport, polo combines glamour and class with precision and achievement. With OMEGA, as well, a rich heritage is donned by beauty, excellence and classy elegance.

OMEGA is part of the 4.6 billion Swiss francs Swatch Group.
