Hublot, the Swiss manufacturer, has been the official timekeeper for the Highland Games
This year again, Hublot and its Scottish retailer ROX, joined forces for a great moment of traditions. Since 2016, the Swiss watch Manufacture has been the Official Timekeeper for the Braemar Gathering Highland Games.
Nestled in the Caingorms National Park, The Braemar Gathering is set within the idyllic and dramatic topography of the Scottish Highlands in the village of Braemar beside the River Dee.
The Braemar Gatherings have a rich and noble history. The ‘athletics’ competition was held for the first time under the auspices of the Braemar Highland Society in 1832. Currently British royalty’s meeting place, the Royal patronage originally began in 1848 with Queen Victoria and has continued with 5 successive Monarchs.
The longest and current Patron of the Braemar Royal Highland Society, Her Majesty The Queen was this year accompanied by the Prince Charles and the Princess Anne at the Princess Royal and Duke of Fife Memorial Park.
Displaying timekeepers in the arena and sponsoring the races of the track eventsm the company is proud to partner for another year with the Braemar Gathering throughout the Highland Games. As tradition requires, the winners of both the 80m and the ½ mile races were awarded a Hublot prize by Benoît Lecigne.
