Breitling ambassador and successful soccer player, David Beckham, has announced his retirement. Beginning his career in 1992 for Manchester United, Beckham spent the last six years playing for the Los Angeles Galaxy and signed a deal to join Paris Saint-Germain for 2013. During Beckham’s illustrious career, he played for Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, and England’s national team, as well as teams in the United States and Paris. Just days ago, Beckham helped PSG win its first league title since 1994. With this victory, Beckham is now the only Englishman to ever win league titles in four different countries. Not a bad way to end an already incredibly successful career!
Although Beckham will be retiring from soccer, let’s hope he stays on as an official brand ambassador for Breitling! In November 2012, Breitling named David Beckham as the face of the Breitling Transocean Chronograph Unitime Worldtimer watch. The sky is the limit for both Breitling and Beckham, making this a very natural pairing. Both Breitling and Beckham are praised for their performance and precision, both of which set them a part from others in their field. Breitling and Beckham have proven throughout the years that they deserve to be at the top of their industries. They have identified their strengths and used them establish themselves as leaders and ones to look up to.
