A memorable event in Johannesburg with OMEGA’s swimming star
OMEGA has hosted a special celebration in Johannesburg, South Africa, to present its new Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M collection. As well as invited guests and clients, the event was also attended by Chad le Clos, a South African swimming star and OMEGA brand ambassador since 2011.
The all-day and evening celebration took place at the exclusive Lel Mirror Dor, situated in the renowned Northcliff suburb of Johannesburg. Overlooking the city, the location was transformed to reflect the OMEGA brand and its newest selection of Planet Ocean models. Throughout the venue, it was possible to get up close to the new watches and also discover some of OMEGA’s legendary ocean heritage.
One of the biggest fans of the new Planet Ocean collection is Chad le Clos. Up on stage during the cocktail event, he spoke enthusiastically about the timepieces and also his ongoing partnership with OMEGA.
As the Official Timekeeper of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, OMEGA has spent a lot of time with Chad le Clos this year. The brand witnessed and timed his medal-winning achievements in August and was proud to stand alongside him again for this exclusive watch celebration.
For the evening, Chad wore an OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M “Deep Black”. This popular GMT divers’ watch is now in OMEGA boutiques and is notable for its sleek ceramic casebody. It also harnesses many of the same breakthrough technologies and Master Chronometer excellence as the rest of the new Planet Ocean collection.
