Fratello On Air: WASP 6.0 — Ambassadors And Formula 1 — Angelus, Zenith, Hublot, Timex, And More…
This week, Balazs and Rob tackle the subject of watch brand ambassadors in the four major professional sports leagues in North America.
Amazingly, six episodes in, this is a topic that hasn’t been fully addressed. In our pilot episode, we touched upon Tom Brady’s ambassadorship for IWC but he is far from alone in the NFL, with Justin Jefferson of the Minnesota Vikings coming in atop Balazs’ list of football-playing watch lovers and Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers is Rob’s pick.
The MLB throws up a couple of throwbacks, with Balazs stretching all the way back to the fifties for his selection. Rob, meanwhile, reaches back about a decade to call upon a superstar that played in the modern era.
The NHL gifts us a couple of under-the-radar players and brands, along with the predictable powerhouse. And, as for the NBA, we take polarized routes to find our champions.
Most exciting of all, however, is WASP’S first phone in Ben Hodges of team Fratello joins us to discuss his love of Formula 1 and how it and his passion for watchmaking combine.
