A fresh face with attitude: TAG Heuer watches recruit Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne, wild cats and TAG Heuer watches: a match made in marketing heaven for the Swiss watch brand.

Chick with attitude: Cara Delevingne has been chosen by TAG Heuer watches as its new ambassador and appeared on stage cuddling a lion cub.

Model, actress, singer and drummer Cara Delevingne has been chosen by TAG Heuer watches as its new ambassador. The 22-year-old is famous for her chameleonic abilities, switching in a flash from tough rebel rocker to glam diva.

President of LVMH Watches and CEO of TAG Heuer, the equally outspoken and larger-than-life Jean-Claude Biver, was effusive about the brand's new representative: "We needed someone disruptive yet elegant, like Cara, to open our minds to the brashness and boldness of today's youth. TAG Heuer has set its sights on 'it-ness', and Cara is just the person to help us get there. Thank you for joining the team Cara, and welcome aboard!"

During the presentation at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris last week, the model appeared on stage cuddling a lion cub and watched on nonchalantly as a tamer handled a lioness. The wild creatures, which represent her star sign of Leo and her obsession with big cats - a tattoo of which she has on her left index finger - were a great publicity stunt on behalf of TAG Heuer watches.

Influential, trend-setting and fresh, Cara Delevingne is a strategic choice for TAG Heuer. Women's watch sales at TAG currently account for 37% of the total and Biver wants to get that figure up to 50%. He is convinced that Cara is the living embodiment of the brand's new tag line, "Don't crack under pressure".

During the presentation, Cara was given a TAG Heuer Formula One chronograph in steel and white ceramic set with diamonds - a perfect match for her unique rock 'n' roll glamour.

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.
