The Big Announcement
The announcement was made during the official launch of the Carrera – Heuer 01 timepiece in New York City on Tuesday night where the President of the LVMH Group Watch Division and CEO of TAG Heuer, Jean-Claude Biver, surprised the attendees by officially introducing the new partnership with the New England Patriots’ star quarterback. Rumors are circling that the deal involved over $2 million dollars to sign plus a small stake in the company.
Commenting on the evening’s big news, Mr. Biver stated, “We are thrilled to have Tom Brady as a representative of TAG Heuer and are looking forward to taking part in the beloved tradition of American football. Tom embodies the principals of perseverance, strength, and illustrates an unwavering commitment to excellence in the face of pressure. He personifies the #Don’tCrackUnderPressure mindset.”

A Big Heart
Also joining in on the festivities were actress Molly Sims, who was the MC for the event, and DJ Eve, who provided the entertainment. Guests were treated to watching Mr. Brady do what he does best – throw footballs. The throwing of the autographed footballs was to raise money for Best Buddies, a charity that helps those who suffer from intellectual and developmental disabilities to develop social, leadership and employment skills.
