“Audemars Piguet and I strive for excellence in all our endeavors,” LeBron said. at the event. “I am honored to be the next global brand ambassador and join the ranks of industry greats who have previously represented the brand. I am also excited to collaborate with AP on an exclusive timepiece that will be the ultimate symbol of our partnership."

Among James' marketing alliances are Nike, Sprite and State Farm.

“We have a history of partnering with those at the top of their game and right now, LeBron is like a comet."

According to Francois-Henry Bennahmias, “We have a history of partnering with those at the top of their game and right now, LeBron is like a comet. Not only does he burn up the court, but he maintains the right balance of family, philanthropy and fame.”

“LeBron James is a gifted athlete and an exceptional humanitarian," said Philippe Merk. "His mission truly mirrors ours and we are delighted to welcome him to the Audemars Piguet family."
