The Omega Dubai Desert Classic 2014, one of the most eagerly awaited stops on the European Golf Tour, is set to tee off on Tuesday January 27 at the Emirates Golf Club, promising to bring the world’s best golfers all the way to Dubai for the 25th year.

Omega is continuing its long-standing relationship with the Dubai Desert Classic, and showing its enduring support for the game of golf in the UAE.

Omega is proud to announce that two of its own brand ambassadors will be competing in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

The world renowned abilities of the Northern Irishman, Rory McIlroy, and the South Korean, S.Y Noh, will be displayed on the ‘Majilis’ course at the Emirates Golf Club.

Stephen Gallacher is hoping to defend his title at this year’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic against a field that includes world number one Tiger Woods and Henrik Stenson, who is ranked third in the world.

The tournament is gearing up to be extremely exciting.

As one of the most prominent luxury watch brands in the world, Omega has a special history and tradition of supporting the elegant game of golf, and will continue to do so for years to come.

Title sponsorships are integral to promoting golf and keeping the standard of the sport at an all-time high.

Raynald Aeschlimann, vice-president and International Sales Director of Omega, said: “We are particularly excited that the Dubai Desert Classic is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. This milestone is a testimony to the tournament’s appeal and Omega is prouder than ever of its title sponsorship role. It is gratifying to be involved an event that gets bigger and better every year and with such a strong field, the 25th is set to be the best edition yet.”

The winner of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic 2014 will be presented with a stunning Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra, the tournament trophy, and a cheque.

The watch is a visionary timepiece that adds class and sophistication to any style. It features an 18K red gold case and a brown leather strap.

Its 18K red gold central hour markers are coated with white Super-LumiNova so the watch is readable in all lighting conditions.

The movement powering the Aqua Terra – the Omega Co-Axial calibre 8611 – has attracted as much attention as the watch’s timeless design. 

The golfer who, with incredible precision and just a bit of luck, scores the first hole-in-one on the seventh hole at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, will be awarded an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra chronometer.
