Soccer Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is on time…

TAG Heuer, the world leader in prestigious and high-end chronographs, is proud to announce the signing of football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to a long-term partnership as a TAG Heuer Brand Ambassador.
Two-time Ballon d’Or winner, Real Madrid forward and Captain of the Portugal team for the coming World Cup in Brazil, Cristiano Ronaldo joins an illustrious roster of TAG Heuer sports stars and celebrities that includes film actors Cameron Diaz and Leonardo DiCaprio, WTA tennis champion Maria Sharapova, Formula One World Champion Jenson Button, World Rally Champion Sebastien Ogier and the entire crew of 2013 America’s Cup winner Oracle Team USA. Past members have included actors Brad Pitt and Uma Thurman, golfing great Tiger Woods, and the most legendary names in the history of Formula One, from Ayrton Senna to Kimi Raikkonen, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton.
“TAG Heuer is by far the best at what it does,” said Cristiano Ronaldo, “and has been for more than 150 years. No other luxury brand has such strong ties to the highest levels of sports. It is incredibly glamorous yet also so unconventional, and we share exactly the same determination: to totally change the game, push the limits and make our own rules. It is a great honor to be a part of such a powerful and pioneering legacy.”
“Every TAG Heuer creation celebrates intense life in the contemporary arena, and no individual represents this more powerfully than Cristiano,” said TAG Heuer CEO Stephane Linder. “Like TAG Heuer, Cristiano demands perfection and pushes himself harder than anyone in his domain. This is the first time we enter the world of football, and it’s a perfect fit to do that with Cristiano, opening a new trend and a new way to engage with our fans. Sports is part of our tradition because we share the same values: self motivation and discipline, pushing one’s limit, never giving up. We’ve been in the sports world since signing on as official chronograph of the 1920 Olympic Games. We started timing ski events in 1928, Formula One and regatta racing in the 1970s. Adding football alongside our longstanding link to motorsports, especially with its number 1 icon and most powerful player, is incredibly exciting.”
Born on the island of Madeira in 1985, Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro (named Cristiano Ronaldo or CR7) first played professionally in his native Portugal before joining Manchester United in 2003, where he scored […]

Cartier Unveils Cinematic Jewel

HollywoodNews.com: the House of Cartier showcased its standout creativity and innovation with the international online release of “L’Odyssee de Cartier” – a three-and-one-half minute film that chronicles Cartier’s 165 years of rich history, offering viewers a tour of the one-of-a-kind jeweler’s cultural influences that include France, Russia, China and India. Making its U.S. television debut on Sunday, March 4, “L’Odyssee de Cartier” – directed by one of the world’s leading advertising directors, Bruno Aveillan – will air in its entirety during prime time on national TV networks.
The film tells the story of the jeweler’s unique history, from its beginnings as a jeweler to European royalty to its modern-day worldwide luxury status. It reveals a glimpse into an imaginary world inhabited by Cartier’s designs, under the watchful gaze of its familiar muse, “La Panthere” (The Panther). The film features many of Cartier’s most enduring and iconic designs, including the “Tutti Frutti” style, jewelry of the Maharajas and a reference to the Santos watch, which was the first modern watch designed to be worn on the wrist.
The original score for “L’Odyssee de Cartier,” which was composed and arranged by renowned orchestrator Pierre Adenot, was recorded at London’s legendary Abbey Road studios. Supermodel Shalom Harlow portrays the “Lady in the Mansion” and modern-day muse, embodying the spirit of the Cartier woman – elegant, passionate and independent. The filming took place over the three months with a crew of 60 people on location.
“The Panther in the film is the ultimate emblem of Cartier’s jewelry expertise and a symbol of strength and freedom,” said Emmanuel Perrin, President and CEO of Cartier North America. “Regal and charming, she is aware of the world around her and follows her instinct with a sharp emerald eye, ready to pounce and enjoy life to the fullest.”
Since its inception in 1847, the House of Cartier established its name around the world. The Cartier brothers were among the first to create a global business with Louis Cartier remaining in Paris to oversee the boutique at 13 Rue de la Paix (1899), Jacques opening a boutique at 175 New Bond Street in London (1909) and Pierre establishing the U.S. business with a boutique on Fifth Avenue in New York (1909).
Discovering the world was a passion shared by the three brothers, who forged friendships with legendary figures whom they met throughout their travels. The film retraces the cultural influences and exceptional encounters […]
