The Swiss watchmaker Roger Dubuis has named Rashad Jennings, football running back for the New York Giants of the National Football League, as an ambassador for the Excalibur collection. Not only his striking force in the most popular sport in the United States attracted the brand of luxury watches but also his drive on the field, and style off the field. The news follows after Roger Dubuis has opened its first ever US boutique in New York City and introduced the Limited Edition Excalibur Spider Americas.
The design is so unique and avant-garde – really unlike anything else I’ve seen before – and it spoke to my personal sense of style. The fact that there’s so much technical innovation and mechanical sophistication really gives me a sense of authenticity whenever I wear a Roger Dubuis watch, not to mention the confidence in knowing that I’m wearing something different from anyone else. – Rashad Jennings
Rashad Jennings confessed that when it comes to the choice of the watches he wears at red carpet events, he prefers to wear some of the most iconic Roger Dubuis pieces. In fact the highly sought-after Excalibur Automatic Skeleton in white gold is one of Jennings’ most favorite. As the leader in contemporary skeleton calibers, Roger Dubuis is unsurpassed in its mastery of architectural and technical mechanics. The latest in its openworked offerings, Excalibur Automatic Skeleton in particular has quickly rocketed to icon status since its launch last year.
Rashad Jennings is a powerful embodiment of our Excalibur collection – with bold character, driven spirit: a true modern man. We are thrilled to be associated with someone with amazing talent and personality, who shares so many core values with our Maison. – Jorge Puentes, Brand President of Roger Dubuis North America
