FOOTBALL AND FASHION: CRUZ CO-DESIGNS WATCH
BY MATT COHEN
No NFL player has a bigger presence in the fashion industry than Giants' wide receiver Victor Cruz.
Selected earlier this year by Sports Illustrated as the World's Most Stylish Athlete, Cruz is now taking his talents to the watch industry.
To celebrate Hublot becoming the official timekeeper of the New York Giants, Cruz, 29, co-designed two new timepieces - the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Limited New York Edition, Titanium and King Gold versions. The watches were unveiled at a September Manhattan "tailgate" party, hosted by Cruz and Jean-François Sberro, Managing Director of Hublot of America.
Several of Cruz's Giants' teammates were in attendance, including Devon Kennard and former Big Blue quarterback and TV personality Jesse Palmer.
"It's a prestigious collaboration that I'm excited to be on the design team for," Cruz said. "I'm excited to see the watch come to fruition."
If you want to get your hands (or wrist) on the new timepiece, you can visit the Hublot website to look up pricing and find locations where the watches are sold.
"I like a watch that is clean and has some flash to it and has some pizazz to it," Cruz said. "When you see it you know what it is, and you know exactly what you're looking for when you see a Hublot watch. It's always a very timeless and classic piece."
