Claude Bernard Ambassador Matt Grevers
Wastes No Time in Breaking New Records

Claude Bernard Swiss-Made WatchesAfter winning two gold medals and one silver at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, American swimming champion Matt Grevers wasn’t ready to rest on his laurels. On Friday, November 30, 2012, Grevers set a new American record in the 100-yard backstroke with a winning time of 44.55 seconds at the AT&T Short Course Winter Nationals in Austin Texas.

The fact that the previous record, set by Ryan Lochte in 2006, has stood throughout the entire high-tech suit era shows just how fast a time Grevers record setting win really was. Matt, always the competitor, wasted no time getting back into racing shape after his amazing performance at the London Olympics. His impressive win at the Winter Nationals is a good indication that his best swimming days are still ahead of him. Since the previous 100-yard backstroke American and US Open record were the same, Grevers will now hold the record for both of them. The future looks bright for this brilliant young swimmer.

As the current brand ambassador for Claude Bernard timepieces, Matt Grevers is well aware of the importance of time. In competitive swimming, sometimes only a fraction of a second separates the winners from the losers. That’s why Matt has chosen to wear the Claude Bernard Aquarider as his personal timepiece. Although he could have chosen virtually any watch to wear, Grevers likes the Aquarider’s precision, style, and durability.

This superb 42 mm stainless steel professional diver chronograph is water resistant to 720 feet and features a protected crown and pushers. Powered by a precision, Swiss made quartz movement and equipped with a unidirectional rotating bezel, along with three chronograph subdials that record intervals of 30 minutes, 12 hours and continuous seconds, this rugged, dependable watch is well equipped to time virtually any event…including future record breaking attempts.
