“When I think about my history, I think of all the people and encounters that have played a determining role. Those who made me who I am, who believed in me and who played a role in boosting my career. Sometimes talent just needs a helping hand from destiny to find success” Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman of Hublot and Chairman of LVMH Watch Division.

Special award recognition was given to Brynjar Sigurõarson for his work and his use of materials from his native Iceland.

Congratulations to the winners!

As Hublot says:

Bolt is first, unique, different. Like Hublot! This is why we are so proud that he is a Hublot Ambassador. He is the most decorated athlete in the history of the IAAF World Championships, the first man in history to win both the 100m and 200m races, as well as the 4x100m with his team, during various major international competitions.

Usain Bolt has been a Hublot ambassador since 2010 and his watch, the King Power Usain Bolt, was launched in 2012.
