He’s more commonly seen wearing Rolexes, like the Rolex Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA Watch, but now the part time LA Galaxy footballer and style icon David Beckham has been named the face of Breitling’s Transocean Chronograph Unitime worldtimer watch (phew that’s a mouthful). Launched earlier this year, the Transocean Chronograph Unitime is equipped with the new Manufacture Breitling Caliber B05and features a double disk enabling permanent readings of the time in all 24 timezones – handy if you are the globe trotting Beckham I’m sure.
Shot o the runway of the Mojave Air & Space Port in California by renowned American photographer Anthony Mandler the striking images below show Beckham standing in front of a private jet wearing his Transocean Chronograph Unitime watch. “I’ve always been a long-time admirer of Breitling”, said David Beckham. “As a company they create not only the highest-performance watches but also timeless designs that have inspired generations. It was a natural choice for me to partner with this fantastic brand.”
Unfortunately not everyone on Breitling’s Facebook‘s page is so enthusiastic about Beckham’s endorsement, one writing ‘That’s 150 odd years of reputation down the drain’ and another ‘It’s time to change the brand of watches’ Oh well can’t please everyone.
