In the past seasons of European Poker Tour winners have been awarded with exclusive bracelets from the jewlery designer Shamballa Jewels. But now that era has come to an end as PokerStars has announced a new partnership with luxury Swiss watch brand Slyde by HD3, who will be supplying a new range of trophy watches to the winners of Season 9.

The first watch will be awarded already this month at EPT Barcelona (August 15-25). The winner of the Main Event will get get a watch called "Black and Steel" that is worth about €5,500. Apart from the Main Event Champions, the winner of the EPT Grand Final in Monaco will receive a special edition of the Slyde watch called "Black and Rose Gold", worth about $9,000.

We are very excited about being the Official Watch Sponsor for EPT Season 9, and are pleased to be aligning ourselves with a company with a similar focus on forward thinking and innovation. We are pleased to be awarding the Main Event winners with their watches to congratulate them on their success at the tables." said Jorg Hysek, creator of Slyde

EPT President Edgar Stuchly added: "The EPT is delighted to be working with Slyde by HD3, and are very pleased to be offering our winners these beautiful watches as part of their prize. We are looking forward to an exciting Season 9, and the fact that we are working with such a prestigious brand of luxury Swiss watches shows the appeal of the European Poker Tour to companies outside of poker."

Dam, that looks slick as hell.

At least if you got caught wearing it in public it doesn't make you look like an attention whore - and you can tell the time on it.

The watch seems really nice in the picture, and nowadays there aren’t many men who still use bracelets as jewelry, so that would be a prize to keep safe in a box at home. This watch brings a new movement, but that bracelet was already like a trademark from the tourney. I don’t know if the old school will apreciate the new era…

Now that looks like a really quality watch and i'm sure it is considering the price tag Big Smile

I think it's nice to see that some sponsors want to make their brand name more known in the poker world, it's a really good market Smile
