Swatch What’s Happening at Sunset House Special! Free watch, free day of diving, free tropical drink.
Sunset House, Grand Cayman’s Hotel for divers, by divers and one of the best dive resorts in the Caribbean, is teaming up with Swatch, the company that introduced affordable Swiss watches 30 years ago, to offer the “Swatch What’s Happening at Sunset House Special!” a promotional dive package that includes a free dive watch, a free day of diving and a free tropical drink. For the late summer/early fall promotion Sunset House is partnering with the teams at Dan Orr Consulting and Kirk Freeport, the official Swatch distributor in the Cayman Islands. The special runs from July 26th through October 31, 2014, and people who book a 5-night package can choose their Scuba Libre dive watch at check-in. With names like Deep Turtle, Clownfish and a promotional tag line Mad about the Sea,the Swatch promotion is a great fit for Sunset House.
“It’s perfect for our clientele – it fits our line of customers,” says Sunset House General Manager Keith Sahm. “There are a lot of people who say ‘I’ve loved Swatch since I was a kid.”
“The Scuba Libre model has been extremely popular since its launch last year,” says Scott Harrington of Kirk Freeport, which carries the largest selection of duty free watch brands in the Caribbean. “Two of things Grand Cayman is famous for are diving and buying watches, so it is great when we can tie the two together to broaden both our audiences. We are very excited about the promotion!”
Dive watches can be pricey, but the Scuba Libre, like all Swatch watches, is cased in different colored plastic and powered by battery − keeping them affordable. Trendy and lightweight, the dive watches feature a traditional rotating bezel, a comfortable silicone strap and are approved to a depth of 200 meters. Guests will receive their Scuba Libre when they check in. They have the option of changing the Swatch at the Kirk Freeport store on the waterfront about a mile away from Sunset House.
Libre means FREE, so besides the watch, customers will also get one day of free diving on Sunset House’s morning two tank dive trips and a Free Scuba Libre drink at the dive resort’s famous My Bar, ranked one of the Caribbean’s favorite beach bars.
Keith Sahm is excited about promotion that brings together players in two different markets to benefit the Cayman Islands. “You’ve got two industry leaders working together: Swatch with its dive watches and Sunset House with its 50+ years in the resort dive business. What I like is the promotion’s cross metric – we want people to see how cool it is because of the tie over.”
“We hope the promotion will bring an increased and wider audience to Sunset house and to experience everything the Cayman Islands has to offer for tourists,” agrees Scott Harrington. “Grand Cayman has so much to offer dive enthusiasts and those tourists just looking to relax – incredible dives sites, breathtaking beaches, amazing restaurants, fantastic duty free shopping and much more.”
