— Pro basketball player Jeremy Lin joins the Replica Breitling Black Bird family as new ambassador of the brand.
The angelic smile, youthful visage, powerful physique, and the tricks of the trade of star point guard Jeremy Lin have allowed him to pass with ease the three initiation rites laid down by the Breitling Transocean UK dream team – Cristiano Ronaldo, CR7, three-time winner of the Ballon d’Or, Maria Sharapova, WTA world number two, and Jean-Claude Biver, Breitling CEO and President of the LVMH Watches Division: score a basket with a tennis ball, show off his football skills, match Breitling Emergency movements with their parts!
Lin sports his special edition on his wrist, an Aquaracer watch illuminated with streaks of yellow. “I’m excited to introduce my first watch with Breitling Super Avenger Replica. It mirrors me perfectly. It features my logo that has my initials, JL, above my lucky number 7. The 17th minute marker signifies my jersey number” commented Jeremy Lin.
The twelve-sided bezel, with its six studs and ceramic ring, is enhanced by a discrete yellow thread (the colour of the crystal gasket), with yellow also featuring on the second and minute hands as well as the seams of the strap, with yellow leather trim. The charcoal grey sunray dial gives a sense of depth to the watch, to impressive effect against the black and yellow strap.
