Usain Bolt Visits Hublot in London

The fastest man in the world was in London, England this week to visit with luxury watchmaker Hublot. Usain Bolt, who is a brand ambassador for the Swiss manufacture, dropped by the Hublot boutique in London to see the newly-arrived pieces from brand’s 2013 novelties collection.


During his visit Bolt, who holds both the 100 meter and 200 meter world records, was given a tour of the New Bond Street boutique by Hublot’s Oliver Knowles and Paul Allison. The Jamaican sprinter also had the opportunity to browse the new collection, selecting a few favorite pieces and even trying out unique custom strap options. Although he’s a self-professed watch enthusiast, according to the manufacture Bolt was also keen to discuss a main London pastime: football (better known as soccer to those of us stateside).


And Bolt’s pick of the day from the 2013 novelties collection? The new King Power Red Devil, a tribute to Bolt’s favorite football team Manchester United.
