Ballon d’Or 2016
An extremely proud TAG Heuer congratulates its loyal ambassador
The Watch Quote™ - December 15th, 2016
Cristiano Ronaldo has been wearing TAG Heuer watches since 2014. He has also supported the watch brand in all of its international communications. This is the fourth time Cristiano has won the Ballon d’Or (2008, 2013, 2014 and 2016). Bravo and many congratulations! We are very proud to team up with you.
La Chaux-de-Fonds, 12th December 2016 – TAG Heuer is delighted to congratulate Cristiano Ronaldo on his fourth Ballon d’Or, which he received on Monday. An award in recognition of the best footballer on the planet.
A TAG Heuer ambassador since 2014, he received the trophy today while sporting a TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T – the famous proprietary Tourbillon paired with a COSC-certified chronograph. This unique piece — specially made for Cristiano — is set with 68 baguette diamonds, which sparkled under the ceremonial lights.
2016 has been a magnificent year for Cristiano, one which saw him win his third Champions League title and end the season with more than 50 goals to his name. The summer saw Cristiano and his Portuguese national side win the Euro 2016 Championships. He was crowned best European player for the second time in August, and the prestigious Ballon d'Or 2016 now recognizes his extraordinary talent and mental strength. Qualities reflected in the motto #DontCrackUnderpressure.
