The angelic smile, youthful visage, powerful physique, and the tricks of the trade of star point guard Jeremy Lin have allowed him to pass with ease the three initiation rites laid down by the Breitling Transocean dream team – Cristiano Ronaldo, CR7, three-time winner of the Ballon d’Or, Maria Sharapova, WTA world number two, and Jean-Claude Biver,Breitling CEO and President of the LVMH Watches Division: score a basket with a tennis ball, show off his football skills, match Breitling Emergency movements with their parts!
Lin sports his special edition on his wrist, an Aquaracer watch illuminated with streaks of yellow. “I’m excited to introduce my first watch with Breitling Super Avenger Replica. It mirrors me perfectly. It features my logo that has my initials, JL, above my lucky number 7. The 17th minute marker signifies my jersey number” commented Jeremy Lin.
The twelve-sided bezel, with its six studs and ceramic ring, is enhanced by a discrete yellow thread (the colour of the crystal gasket), with yellow also featuring on the second and minute hands as well as the seams of the strap, with yellow leather trim. The charcoal grey sunray dial gives a sense of depth to the watch, to impressive effect against the black and yellow strap.
Former Olympic showjumper, two-term President of the International Equestrian Federation (FEI), FEI Honorary President and Classic-winning racehorse owner, HRH Princess Haya received the honour in recognition of “Her outstanding elegance as a competitor, a leader and a woman working tirelessly for the good of equestrian sports” said Mr. Juan-Carlos Capelli, Vice President & Head of International Marketing of Breiting Replica Watches.
HRH Princess Haya received the 2015 Longines Ladies Award consisting of a Longines pocket watch: The Longines Equestrian Pocket Watch Horses Trio 1911. The model that served as an inspiration for this 18-carat rose gold very limited edition is a Longines pocket timepiece dating from 1911 with a cleverly crafted background depicting a trio of horses. The heads of these three proud animals stand out against a background of delicately worked foliage. This model features the L878.4 calibre with manual winding, a Longines Manufacture movement.
