Beckham for Breitling

Footballing legend David Beckham teams up with Breitling to bring us the Breitling Transocean Chronograph Unitime.

beckham-breitling

Footballing legend and style icon, David Beckham, is the new face of Breitling's Transocean Chronograph Unitime worldtimer watch. Founded in 1884, the Swiss watchmaker has spent well over a century focussing on watches for aviators. This latest incarnation propels Breitling's own Caliber B05 into a new realm, with a double disc that enables the wearer to view all 24 time zones.

The idea behind the new watch campaign is focussed on the world traveller who likes to indulge in a little luxury in-between globe hopping. The Unitime travel watch was originally launched in the 1950s. "I've always been a long-time admirer of Breitling," says Beckham. "As a company, it creates not only the highest-performance watches but also timeless designs that have inspired generations." Available in steel or red gold, the self-winding Transocean Chronograph Unitime has a 70-hour power reserve and has been officially chronometer-certified by the COSC, the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute.

The Beckham ads were shot by American photographer Anthony Mandler at the Mojave Air & Space Port in California, which is home to a number of entrepreneurial individuals hoping to further space flight outside of NASA. With a timepiece with such horological and aviation heritage on David Beckham's wrist, this watch is going places.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
