OMEGA’s Olympic Valentine: Cindy Crawford comes to Vancouver

Back

No one is more closely associated with the OMEGA Constellation family of wristwatches than supermodel Cindy Crawford, who has been a spokesperson for the brand’s fashion line with its famous “griffes” or claws since 1995.

She was in Vancouver and Whistler as OMEGA’s guest at the Olympic Winter Games and attracted an enormous crowd of spectators and members of the media when she and OMEGA president Stephen Urquhart posed for photographs in a sleek red OMEGA bobsleigh in front of the Official Olympic Countdown Clock in downtown Vancouver on Valentine’s Day.

Afterwards, she visited the OMEGA Boutique on the ground floor of the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver directly across the street from the Countdown Clock and later was interviewed by international media on the 14th floor of the hotel. Following her interviews, she joined OMEGA staff, journalists and invited guests at a cocktail party.

The supermodel has had a busy week. She attended the Opening Ceremony for the Games with her family on Friday and went with them to Whistler on Saturday to visit the OMEGA Lounge at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler.

Cindy said that she was delighted to be in British Columbia for the Games. "There’s an amazing atmosphere here – the people of Vancouver and Whistler and in all of Canada have done a great job preparing for the Games. I’m thrilled because I love to watch figure skating."

OMEGA is the Official Timekeeper of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. It marks the 24th time the brand has served in the role since 1932. While no one knows which countries will be represented on the medal podiums in Vancouver and Whistler, one thing is certain: the athletes’ outstanding performances will have been timed by OMEGA.
