Gerard Butler named as watches ambassador

First published: 08-09-2011

Gerard Butler may soon be seen on the red carpet and at showbiz events sporting an attractive watch after it was announced he was to become the new face of a Swiss manufacturer.

The Hollywood actor, who has appeared in films such as 300 and The Bounty Hunter, has been announced as the new representative for Roger Dubuis watches.

His decision to become a representative for the brand came after he toured the factory in Geneva and fell in love with the timepieces which they produce.

Commenting on his new role, Butler said: "Watch making is just like the cinema, it hides a precise mechanism which must then generate emotion. The world of Roger Dubuis, the arrival of its collections, like spaces of freedom, perfectly matches my principles."

The news comes shortly after tennis star Novak Djokovic revealed ahead of the US Open that he will be the new spokesperson for Audemars Piguet watches.
