Rox and Hublot rub shoulders with royalty at Scotland’s Highland Games

Highland Games 1

Scottish jeweller Rox and its marquee brand Hublot hosted the Queen at the weekend as they celebrated the Braemar Gathering Highland Games 2017 as official timekeeper.

The Highland Games can trace their history back 900 years, and Her Majesty the Queen rarely fails to watch them. Royal patronage began with Queen Victoria in 1848.

The Queen was joined at the event this year by Charles, Prince of Wales, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and Anne, Princess Royal.

This year a record 16,000 spectators came to support international and military athletes participating in both the ‘heavy’ and ‘track’ events of the traditional Highland Games.

Hublot is particularly proud to partner with the Braemar Gathering; displaying time and sponsoring the races of the ‘track’ events throughout the Highland Games. The winners of both the 80m and the ½ mile races had been awarded a Hublot prize by Benoît Lecigne, brand director for the United Kingdom, France, BeLux, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia.

Speaking at the event, Mr Lecigne said: “For the second year in a row, we are delighted to take an active part in Braemar Highland Games. These Games continue the tradition and epitomize Hublot motto, “The Art of Fusion” which has been at the core of the brand since the creation of its mythical Big Bang collection. This motto has nourished the creation of the new Classic Fusion Italia Independent which dial is adorned by tartan.”
