Lionel on joining the Audemars Piguet family: “It’s a real joy and a great honour for me to join a prestigious family such as that of Audemars Piguet, which I have long admired. This is the start of a beautiful human adventure based on strong shared values and visions”.

As may be expected, Audemars love Lionel back. Otherwise, they’d not be hiring him as brand ambassador, no? Anyhoo, here’s what company CEO Philippe Merk says about their newest ambassador: “Lionel Messi is an exceptional man, the greatest player of his generation. This young and talented athlete not only embodies pure sporting genius, but also the courage and the determination of a man who fights against all odds to pursue his dreams. Above and beyond his intrinsic value, we are welcoming a big-hearted man with valuable human qualities into the Audemars Piguet family.
