Covering more sports, arts and pop culture than any luxury watchmaker, Hublot’s universe of likeminded spokespersons couldn’t be more diverse. But what these ambassadors all share in common is passion, dedication and unrelenting drive.
Here are ten unique personalities on Hublot’s roster:
Usain Bolt, nicknamed the “Lightning Bolt”, has time and time again proven that he is more than worthy of the title of “the fastest man of all time”. But off the track, Bolt’s cool attitude and generous nature make him a fitting ambassador for Hublot.
The recently retired player is nothing short of a living legend. During his illustrious career spanning almost twenty years with the L.A. Lakers, the “Black Mamba” earned renown for his unique playing style involving striking accurately and swiftly in rapid succession.
Michael “Pup” Clarke is something of a national hero Down Under. Though now retired, the former Captain of the Australian Test team made his mark on the game of cricket during his impressive career. Clarke is also a known watch-lover, making for a very organic relationship with Hublot!
A true lover of the arts, the young Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang has already enjoyed a musical career most can only dream of. Beyond music, Lang Lang’s philanthropy extends to projects with UNICEF and the United Nations as a “Messenger of Peace”.
One could say that “Special One” José Mourinho was born to be one of the greatest football managers alive. Son of footballer José Manuel Mourinho Félix, Mourinho never got to follow his father’s footsteps as a player, but instead joined the football greats by leading clubs like Benefica, FC Porto, Chelsea FC, Inter Milan and Real Madrid to new heights.
The only football player to have ever won three World Cups, Pelé is very much one of the greatest living athletes of our era. Pelé continues to inspire the youth through his various and philanthropic endeavors both in his native Brazil and around the globe.
Supermodel by day, venture capitalist by night: there’s nothing the gorgeous Israeli-born Bar Refaeli can’t do. As the first female face for Hublot, Refaeli exudes the modern, edgy kind of sexiness that make up Hublot’s creative ladies watches.
It took Hublot time to enter the prestigious world of golf, but when it did, it chose none other than English champion Justin Rose. With multiple PGA and European Tour wins under his belt, Justin Rose is all about performance and precision.
It didn’t take long for Japanese baseball pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to rise to world renown. A relatively recent but critical addition to the New York Yankees, Tanaka has already proven to be a force to be reckoned with on the pitch. And when he’s not breaking records, Tanaka gives back such by holding baseball classes for children along with other similar professional baseball players.
Dwayne Wade reigns supreme on the basketball court. With an Olympic Gold Medal and multiple NBA achievements including nine-time NBA All-Star, Wade’s inimitable style and panache – on and off the court – perfectly embodies the avant-garde spirit of Hublot.
