At the occasion of the Indian Independence Day, Frederique Constant has launched a digital campaign around Polo with the support of our local Brand Ambassador, Samir Suhag. We have participated a Polo tournament in Bangalore and launched a dedicated nato strap to complete this campaign.
On the afternoon of Independence Day, August 15th, two groups of individuals gathered at the ASC Centre & College grounds to compete for the coveted ‘Frederique Constant Independence Day Polo Cup’.
As the game commenced, we saw the Frederique Constant Team go head-to-head with the team of representatives from the Indian Army. Brand Ambassador, Samir Suhag, led his team of Frederique Constant representatives along with Arun D’Silva, Director, and two young players. They set out to give our well-trained Indian Army Team a challenge and hopefully showcase some firepower of their own.
The match was off to a flying start, with both teams displaying their outstanding energy and skill. It was a fast-paced, hotly contested match with both sides truly giving it their all. The Indian Army Team stood as a formidable force of physical experience atop thoroughbred horses. But no matter how hard they tried, they were unable to quell the brilliance of Samir Suhag, whose grace and skill was the defining factor in the Frederique Constant Team emerging victorious.
Due to his beautiful, participative style of play and his immense contribution to the sport as a whole, Samir Suhag received a special commendation from the General of the Indian Army, while his Frederique Constant team was awarded with a grand trophy to commemorate the occasion. As an additional honour, the Indian Army Team was happy to extend an invitation for a return match the following year.
The thrilling encounter served as the main event following a three-day coaching workshop conducted by Samir Suhag himself. Polo players and enthusiasts from across the country attended the event at Bangalore. With the youngest player at age 17 and the oldest player comfortably in his mid-50s, our participants made absolutely clear that ‘age is but a number’. The camp was very successful with much appreciation received from all of the participants involved.
Frederique Constant India would like to thank all of the participating players, the organisers and the Indian Army for this wonderful opportunity. It certainly won’t be the last.
Frederique Constant India, in commemoration of India’s 70th Independence Day, released a special edition piece based on their Classics Automatic series. Truly capturing the spirit of India, this timepiece comes with a one-of-a-kind tricolour strap, emblazoned with the colours of the Indian flag.
