31. 08. 2011. · Nole has become the latest brand ambassador of Audemars Piguet, the prestigious Swiss watch manufacturer.
The world number 1, who is enjoying an exceptional season, has joined the brand’s team of ambassadors which includes a number of famous sportsmen including Michael Schumacher, Leo Messi, American basketball star LeBron James, cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and golfers Lee Westwood and Rory Mcllroy.
“I have discovered a new passion for fine watchmaking and I truly admire both the traditional and modern aspects of the work accomplished by Audemars Piguet”, Novak expressed his admiration several months ago, when he paid a discreet visit to the watch company that is still in the hands of the founding families.
It was logical for Audemars Piguet to set the seal on this friendship with the extraordinary player. This admiration is mutual. Above and beyond his undeniable tennis playing abilities, Audemars Piguet appreciates the generosity and altruism demonstrated by Nole who is involved in a number of charitable endeavours.
“We are particularly honoured by the friendship we enjoy with this great champion who expresses through his sport our own values of excellence and audacity. We wish him a warm welcome and the best of luck for the rest of the season which he has dominated so far”, said the brand CEO Philippe Merk on the occasion of Nole’s joining the Audemars Piguet family.
