American swimmer Caeleb Dressel has been announced as the newest OMEGA Ambassador, following his feats at the recent Olympic Games 2020 held in Tokyo.
The American claimed five golds, claiming the winner’s medal in the Men’s 100m Butterfly, Men’s 100m Freestyle, Men’s 50m Freestyle, Men’s 4x100m Medley and Men’s 4×100 Freestyle.
Dressel also set new World and Olympic records and becomes the fifth swimmer to win at least five gold medals in one Olympic Games, joining the list with fellow OMEGA Ambassador Michael Phelps.
During these Olympic Games, the swimming star had the opportunity to immerse himself in OMEGA’s showcase of timekeeping technology in Tokyo, where he even tried his hand at watchmaking.
Asked how he felt about joining the OMEGA family, Caeleb Dressel said, “It’s very humbling, it’s a great brand, and precision timing is so important. One hundredth of a second makes a big difference to your results.”
During the visit, Caeleb Dressel wore OMEGA’s Seamaster Co‑Axial Master Chronometer Chronograph Diver 300M in steel and 18K yellow gold, with blue ceramic dial and bezel. Fixed with a NATO strap in USA colours.
An Olympic gold medallist and world record holder prior to Tokyo 2020, Caeleb Dressel has been on a winning trajectory since 2017, when he claimed seven gold medals at the World Aquatics Championships in Budapest.
Caeleb Dressel joins OMEGA’s impressive roster of swimming greats, which includes Chad le Clos, Swiss swimmer Jérémy Desplanches and the legendary Michael Phelps.
