I have to say, that in the context of more and more horror stories of people being attacked in the streets of London, the recent pictures of Bernie Ecclestone were pretty shocking.
Does not really matter if you like or don’t like him (or as a fan of the sport, agree or disagree with the way he has run Fromula1), but the images of what thieves did to him outside his home were disturbing, not least because he apparently said to them that they could take what they wanted anyway.
One of the things stolen was Bernie’s Hublot F1 King Watch, pictured below, and with a price tag that is so high, I couldn’t find it online.
So well done to Bernie and to Hublot for the below ad, which appeared in Newspapers across England last week.
This ad was created and placed at the request of Bernie himself, who wanted to show a bit of defiance no doubt (and also probably figured it would ensure Hublot’s ongoing association with the sport).
