Omega is celebrating its 20th anniversary with brand ambassador Cindy Crawford.

The former supermodel is Omega’s longest-serving brand ambassador, having joined the brand in 1995.

Omega president Stephen Urquhart said: “It’s hard to believe that we have been working with Cindy for twenty years. She is as beautiful now as she ever was. Cindy has made some remarkable contributions to Omega over the years and was instrumental in establishing the brand’s fashion credentials. She is truly a member of the family and our partnership with her is a privilege.”

Over the past three decades Crawford has  been part of many moments with Omega from teeing-off at the first Omega Celebrity Golf Tournament, celebrating Omega’s 150th anniversary in India and visiting host cities Vancouver and Whistler during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

Crawford commented: “When I started working with Omega in 1995, the company had a great reputation as a watchmaker. They’d been around since the middle of the 19th century, they were famous for their sports timekeeping, their divers’ watches and, of course, their association with the space program and all the Moon landings – a lot of stereotypically ‘guy stuff’. I had the chance from the very beginning, to have input on the design of the Constellation watches and I’m proud of the fact that Omega is now, along with all of its technical accomplishments, considered to be a fashionable watchmaker.”
