Rolex - Another feather in Gonzalo Pieres Jr.’s cap

Gonzalo Pieres Jr. joins the league of Rolex Testimonees

Online PR News – 15-December-2009 – – Rolex has been known to associate only with the very best. Therefore, the announcement of making Gonzalo Pieres Jr. a Rolex Testimonee was no surprise. The polo player is ranked number one in the World Polo Tour and has an impressive career graph to his credit. The association of exceptional sportspersons with Rolex has now become a tradition. The association can be traced back to the year 1927 when Mercedes Gleitze swam through the icy and trying waters of the English Channel with a Rolex Oyster clasped on her wrist. Along with Rolex creating the first water-resistant collection called the Oyster, the year also marked the beginning of what would be a long and esteemed association between Rolex and world of sports for years to come. Ever since Mercedes Gleitze’s feat over the English Channel, Rolex timepieces have been endorsed by the most eminent sportspersons and artists of the world.

Gonzalo Pieres Jr. is a 26 year old polo player whose impressive resume is highlighted by success at events like the Grand Slam Sotogrande Cup, the Masters Series British Open, the US Open and the Argentine Open. The extraordinary polo player signed the sponsorship deal with Rolex during the Argentine Cup on December the 3rd. The exclusive partnership between Rolex and Gonzalo Pieres Jr. comes as a great honor to the the 10-goal handicapper. Gonzalo Pieres Jr. is extremely proud of the fact that he has now joined the ranks of many great sports personalities who have had the honor to associate with Rolex. The world’s number one ranking polo player confessed of having grown up watching Rolex Testimonees compete at the highest level in sports. Just like his predecessors Gonzalo Pieres Jr. strives for perfection in everything he does.

Jean-Noel Bioul who is the co-director of sponsoring at Rolex stated that Gonzalo Pieres Jr.’s number one status had been achieved with focus and determination coupled with a constant desire to improve. His approach of pursuing perfection is all that Rolex has stood for so many years and will stand by in the future as well. Gonzalo Pieres Jr. joins names like Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, Zara Phillips and Rodrigo Pessoa as a Rolex Testimonee in the equestrian category. Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum is a German equestrian who participates in show jumping competitions at an international level. She was ranked number one in the world from February to December, i.e. 11 months in a row, in 2008. Zara Phillips is the reigning Eventing World Champion and was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire in 2007 for her services to equestrianism. Rodrigo Pessoa is a Brazilian equestrian and show jumper and has an impressive conquest of 50 Grand Prix to his credit. The entire experience of being named in the league of such great achievers by becoming a Rolex Testimonee must be an extremely humbling experience for the 10-goal handicapper. Rolex has maintained its endeavor of recognizing the best sportspersons in the world which would further encourage them to outdo not only their competitors but eventually themselves. Rolex has always saluted the spirit of sportsmanship and also the human spirit in pursuit of excellence.
