Watches of Champions !

It is interesting to see what happens in the world of celebrity endorsements when it comes to wristwatches. An undeniable fact is that the world of sports has a deeper connection with the world of watches and time itself. The precision and discipline with which an athlete does his business is reflected in the working of a watch as well.

Did you know that an average major league baseball game lasts almost 3 hours?

Did you also know that an average tennis match can last up to 5 hours?

On the other end of the spectrum, time in an F1 race is measured in seconds. In a pit stop, a swarm of men change tires and fills up fuel and sets the driver on his way in less than 3 seconds. Take a look at this video (Source – https://youtu.be/SNK49ZD_D0Q) and you will see how it works -

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Take for instance the amazing brand of TAG Heuer. When this brand asks, “what are you made of ?” Athletes such as Maria Sharapova, Lewis Hamilton, Suzann Petterson and Sarah Fisher (to name a tiny handful of their ambassadors) have answered !!

 

And of course, everybody knows the connection between Rolex and the world of tennis which, interestingly, harks back to the year 1978 when Rolex was designated as the official timekeeper at Wimbledon. Roger Federer? Another epitome of Swiss perfection and accuracy? The human version of a Rolex? He loves his Rolex!

There are plenty of other celebrities from the world of racing that endorse different kinds of watches. Incidentally, Sarah Fisher, named above, is the youngest woman to qualify for the Indy 500.

Oris is another Swiss watch brand which has got close links with the world of racing. Nico Rosberg is one voice that speaks up for the brand.

Now, isn’t it time to feel sporty?!
