The renowned Swiss horological company Omega stands out due to its exceptional watch line as well as its contributions into the field of horology. It is also notable for its ardent devotion to sports timing.

Distinguished by ongoing development, Omega has marked this partnership by an advanced technology. This watchmaker is also happy to associate itself with outstanding athletes across the spectrum of disciplines.

Massimiliano Rosolino, has been recently appointed to be an Omega ambassador. The sportsman, who made quite a sensation in the world of swimming, undoubtedly embodies the spirit of the company.

Massimiliano Rosolino, 30 years of age, is regarded to be the most successful Italian swimmer. The real pride of his mother country, he won more than 60 medals from the most important world events.

The latter embraces "Acqua per il Burundi", a non-profit organization, whose focal point is constructing water wells in the East African country that suffers from droughts.

Massimiliano Rosolino had been known to be an avid lover of the Swiss brand’s timepieces before Omega chose him to become its ambassador. Rosolino’s excellent collection consists of several Seamaster Planet Ocean watches, including the impeccable Seamaster model, the Omega company bestowed on him at the Sydney Olympic Games. When he puts on his pinstriped suit instead of his swimsuit, the swimmer also prefers dressier watches manufactured by Omega.

To solidify its sport image, Omega also enjoys a sponsor relationship with the eight-time Olympic Gold medalist Michael Phelps, the "Russian Rocket" Alexander Popov, the Australian outstanding sportsman Ian Thorpe, as well as the promising young American Katie Hoff.

The sophisticated technologies created by Omega have taken swimming competition to new heights. The list features the semi-automatic Swim Eight-O-Matic Timer, touch pads, as well as live timing technology, which permits the real time viewing of races.
