Beckham "loves" classic watches

First published: 23-04-2009

The England and AC Milan footballer David Beckham is set to appear in a new advertising campaign for the new Aura Motorola mobile phone device.

Becks has yet to see the handset, but the style icon appears to be looking forward to getting his hands on the Aura - which has been likened in design to a classic watch.

Like many fashion watches, the Aura phone exposes its intricate workings in a modern interpretation of classic craftsmanship.

Commenting on the new device, Beckham suggested it had parallels with his favoured classic watch designs.

He said: "I love classic watches, so a phone that exposes its mechanics while also being so stylish is really unique.

"When you hold it, it feels like you have something really special in your hand."

Taking after her husband, former spice girl Victoria Beckham also displays a penchant for classic men's wristwatches.

Most recently, she has been seen about town wearing a Rolex Presidential watch.
