Quincy Jones becomes watch company ambassador

First published: 01-02-2010

Quincy Jones has been selected as the newest brand ambassador for a high-end watch company based in Europe though operating out of the US.

The multi-award winning genius responsible for such hits as the Michael Jackson albums Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad, was showcasing the Millenary Quincy Jones Limited Edition on behalf of Audemars Piguet.

Audemars Piguet North America was responsible for organising an event at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, which was also hosted by Francois-Henry Bennahmias, the well-known and charismatic president and chief executive officer of the division.

Alongside the usual press calls for the limited edition watch were debut performances by Quincy Jones' newest album "Soul Bossa Nostra", as well as the amazing talents of a young Cuban-born pianist by the name of Alfredo Rodriguez.

As well as Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones has also partnered Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Donna Summer and Ella Fitzgerald.
