Blancpain Brand Ambassadors and Celebrity Fans

Blancpain Brand Ambassadors and Celebrity Fans. About ten years later, we are updating this post to note that, apparently, Blancpain does not call its brand ambassadors as such. Instead, it calls them “circle of friends”. This information tidbit is from worldtempus.com which knows way more about watches than we do.

Anyhoo, the renowned Swiss watchmaker has been adding to its list of “circle of friends” and this includes French marine biologist Laurent Ballesta. According to the Blancpain website, it is supporting Ballesta’s Gombessa V Expedition which seeks to “study, photograph, and present to the public little known areas in the Mediterranean Sea”.

Celebrities With Baume et Mercier Watches: Gary Sinise and Co.

Celebrities With Baume et Mercier Watches. Baume and Mercier is a Swiss luxury watch company established in 1830. It is most probably known for its Riviera model which was launched in 1973. Other popular models from the company include Hampton, Capeland, and Classima Executive.

Let’s make a list of celebrities or famous people who own Baume et Mercier watches. Let’s begin with our imaginary boyfriend Gary Sinese who’s wearing a Riviera model in the above print advert. Oh, did we say that he’s is our boyfriend? Yes we did! We fell in love with him (particularly with his soulful expressive eyes) in that movie Of Mice and Men which he also directed. He should have been nominated for that movie in both the acting and directing categories.

Here’s what Ricardo says about Carl F Bucherer: “For me, Carl F. Bucherer watches stand for elegance, absolute perfection, and precision timing – all made in the very heart of Switzerland. These are attributes that connect us, and that’s why I am so excited about this partnership.”

In 2016, it signed up Chinese actress Li Bingbing to be a global ambassador. Continue reading Carl F Bucherer Watch Brand Ambassadors

Andrew Zimmern Watches and Sunglasses: Tag Heuer Formula 1 for Celebrity Chef

Andrew Zimmern Watch: Tag Heuer Formula 1. Celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern loves him his fruit salad. Hey wait, is that actually a fruit salad. Looks like there’s a shrimp in there so it must be a mixed vegetable salad.

In fact, it kinda looks the Thai food we had in Bangkok.

Now, aside from loving his fruit salad — or vegetable salad — our hot baldie also loves him his Tag Heuer Men’s Formula One watch.

Celebrities With Corum Watches: Ben Ainslie, Didier Cuche, Elissa Khoury

Celebrities With Corum Watches: Brand Ambassadors. We are updating this post to give you more Corum brand ambassadors in addition to British sailor Ben Ainslie. It is worth noting that Cristiano was never an ambassador for the brand although he wore a Corum watch during a photoshoot. Anyhoo, the other Corum brand ambassadors we are adding to this list are British sailor Conrad Humphreys, Lebanese singer Elissa Khoury, and Swiss skier Didier Cuche. Check out what the ambassadors are saying about Corum:

Didier Cuche: I see in Corum the same motivation I feel in my discipline. I devote 550 hours of physical preparation and 200 hours of skiing to competing in just 45 minutes of downhill racing per season. The time I spend on training and preparing my equipment reminds me of that taken by the company watchmakers in creating their watches. We are driven by the same desire for perfection and the same determination to perpetually set ourselves fresh challenges. Moreover, Corum is an essential local player that contributes to the economic and historical development of my region. I am therefore naturally enthusiastic and proud to be part of this family.
