Time for big matches





The watch brands have long shunned footballers but times are a-changing and now they’re more than happy to play with footie’s big stars!



Dare with David Beckham.
Becks is one of the greatest players of all times, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, a style icon, and the star of the Born To Dare campaign for which he poses in a denim shirt, sleeves rolled up to show his tattoos, with a Black Bay S&G on his wrist


Antoine Griezmann and fluid mechanics.

The French international footballer is the latest face of the luxury brand’s hydro-mechanical watches. “The first time I saw an HYT, in 2012, I thought to myself, this team has really done something out of the ordinary. The fluid time display always reminds me of an energy gauge, like the one I have to manage every day as a sportsman,” says Griezmann aka Grizou.


The champions’ watch.
Ever a precursor, this Swiss watchmaker has been a football fan for 10 years now, accompanying clubs, coaches, players and competitions. Early this year it presented Big Bang Unico Retrograde Chronographs to the winners of the The Best FIFA Football Awards 2016, when Cristiano Ronaldo was named Best Player.
