Novak Djokovic visits sponsors who have always brought him luck
Novak Djokovic popped in at the Swiss headquarters of watchmakers Hublot and they shared a video of his experience.
Djokovic signed a sponsorship deal with the luxury watch brand just before his tilt at the 2021 US Open title.
He opined that the sponsors have always brought him ‘luck and success’.
While Rolex and Richard Mille have been partners with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal respectively, it wasn’t until quite late that Djokovic signed up with a watchmaker.
“Hello, I’m Novak Djokovic and today, I’m visiting the Hublot headquarters in Switzerland,” he said.
“I’m very happy that my Hublot watch has followed me around the world in the tennis tournaments. It has brought me a lot of luck and success, and today I’m fortunate to visit the place where it was created.”
Hublot were delighted to have Djokovic drop in as one of their leading brand ambassadors.
“Yesterday we had the pleasure of hosting #HublotAmbassador @djokernole at our Hublot manufacturer, where precision and passion for excellence meet. It was great to see you, thanks for the visit,” Hublot’s Instagram post read.
Djokovic joined the likes of Pele and Usain Bolt in being associated with the Swiss company.
He said: “As an athlete driven by the ambition to make history in tennis, I am particularly proud of the opportunity to join the Hublot family, which already boasts athletes who have left their mark on their respective disciplines by becoming legends like Pelé or Usain Bolt. With Hublot, we still have so much to win, together!”
Djokovic wore the $24,100 Big Bang Meca-10 watch during his Wimbledon and Australian Open trophy celebrations.
The high-performance watch features Hublot’s patented bright and densely colored ceramic material, which is unique to the watchmaker.
“Djokovic’s Big Bang Meca-10 is certainly a timepiece fit for a champion,” Bryan Hood of the Robb report wrote.
“It features a 45mm case made from microblasted and polished blue ceramic and is topped with a matching bezel.
“The material is notoriously hard to color, but Hublot’s patented method ensures the vibrant hue comes through clearly.
“Beneath its sapphire crystal you’ll find a matte blue skeletonized dial that shows off its movement, and also has a seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock and a cog wheel power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock.
“Topping the package off is a blue and black structured lined rubber strap and a black buckle clasp made of ceramic and titanium.”
