ROHIT SHARMA AT THE JOHNSON WATCH COMPANY STORE IN NEW DELHI
New Delhi, India – May 04, 2017 : This day Hublot and its principle retail partner – Johnson Watch Company hosted a meet and greet with Rohit Sharma, Hublot’s Friend of the Brand, at their store located at Connaught Place, New Delhi. Rohit Sharma met media, Hublotistas and privileged guests during his visit in the Boutique. The famous cricket player was also presented a Hublot Big Bang Unico Titanium as a special gift from Hublot on the occasion of his 30th birthday. His appearance caused a great uproar outside of the Hublot Boutique with fans waiting to see this star Batsman!
Rohit Sharma became a Hublot Friend in April 2016, a brand with which he shares a sense of excellence, passion and generosity. Cricket, one of the largest sporting phenomena in the world, in terms of aficionados and audience, can be said to be the most popular game in India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and the West Indies, in particular. Hublot has once again proven itself to be always First, Unique, and Different, as the 1st luxury brand to invest in this sport.
Two big events were organized on Nov.24, 2014 in India and Australia, to seal the presence of the Swiss watchmaking brand in this new field. To mark the occasion, a watch dedicated to cricket devotees was presented.
“Hublot has once again proven itself as the first, unique, and different luxury brand to enter cricket. This incredible sport will round off our worldwide marketing presence, and help drive our development in countries with high commercial potential. I am delighted with this great collaboration that awaits us, and am very proud that the ICC has chosen
Hublot as its partner.”
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot
Having Michael Clarke- the Australian cricketer in the Hublot family, Rohit Sharma – the explosive Indian Cricketer Batsman who opens the batting for India, became the latest Friend of the Brand in April 2016. While receiving the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph 2016 ICC World Twenty20 cricket watch from Hublot, he said ““I have always been a watch fanatic; so being associated with a brand like Hublot is an absolute delight. They create some of the most incredible timepieces, unique and different. I have always been a fan, so to be on their roster and have them on mine is incredible. Their involvement in sport has been remarkable so that makes our association even more exciting.”
Hublot also sees a lot in common between the Brand and Rohit Sharma as he combines the traditional batting technique in cricket with entertainment. Ranked amongst the top 10 batsman in the world in the limited overs Cricket and having the world record of scoring maximum runs in the 50 over format of the game, Hublot is proud to be associated with this explosive Cricketer.
Hublot was the 1st luxury brand to enter football in 2006, which proved to be now an immense marketing and commercial success story. The same approach led Hublot into basketball, with the NBA in the USA, back in 2011. Nor should we forget the success of Hublot’s worldwide collaboration with Ferrari that debuted in 2011. Cricket provides a perfect geographic complement to football.
Football’s major events, including the FIFA World Cup™, and most prestigious clubs (Bayern Munich, Juventus Torino…) bear the colours of Hublot, not to mention the many players who sport Hublot watches.
