Swapping the silver screen for the golf greens of Switzerland - George Clooney was the guest of honour at a special event in Cry D’Er to mark this year’s OMEGA Masters tournament.
The renowned star is a long-standing OMEGA ambassador and joined a host of other celebrity guests at an altitude of 2,200m, where the evening’s celebrations took place.
“This is the first time we’ve welcomed George to Crans-Montana. He’s brought some real star quality to the occasion, and it’s an honour to show him this side of Switzerland and our brand.”
Raynald Aeschlimann, President and CEO of OMEGA
Accompanying George at the Saturday night occasion were other friends of OMEGA, including the Olympic Games snowboarder, Shaun White, and his partner, Canadian actress Nina Dobrev, along with American actors, Paul Wesley, Glenn Powell and Anthony Anderson.
“I can see why OMEGA loves it here so much. This brand always does everything to the highest standard, and in terms of a golf tournament, I can’t think of a better location or title host. I’m thrilled to share this special moment with them.”
Originally called the Swiss Open when it was first played in 1923, this high-altitude competition has remained at the same venue since 1939, making it the oldest golf tournament in Europe to be played on the same course every year. OMEGA claimed the naming rights in 2001.
