Richard Mille Announces New Brand Ambassador: Top-ranked Polo Player Pablo MacDonough

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Paris, France – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Argentinean polo player Pablo MacDonough is Richard Mille’s newest brand ambassador. Like the luxury watchmaker’s other ambassadors, MacDonough competes with a Richard Mille watch strapped to his wrist, and his success in his field mirrors Richard Mille’s excellence in the field of haute horology.

MacDonough began playing polo at the age of six in the Nueva Escocia Polo Ranch, where Pablo’s father breeds his own horses. Pablo turned pro soon after he finished high school, and in 2001, he gave his career a real jumpstart by winning the “Camara de Diputados Cup” in Buenos Aires. In 2003, he began playing for Ellerstina, one of the best Argentinean polo teams of the last decade, where he played eight seasons and won the 2010 Argentinean Triple Crown.

Pablo MacDonough, who holds titles from The Argentinean Polo Open (twice), Hurlingham Open (four times), Queen’s Cup (twice) and UK Gold Cup for the British Open (once), is considered to be one of the best polo players in the world. In May 2011, he joined the elite crowd of the Richard Mille Polo Team alongside Prince Bahar Jefri.

Richard Mille decided to get involved in polo—an extreme sport requiring physical performance and endurance—to address new technical challenges and test innovative solutions in the world of haute horlogerie.

Pablo MacDonough stands alongside Felipe Massa, Rafael Nadal and Bubba Watson in wearing a Richard Mille watch during his tournaments, the RM010 Black Night. From 2012, he will wear an exceptional timepiece crafted specifically for him, which will also be a limited and numbered edition. The watch, designed to withstand extreme conditions, will be unveiled at the SIHH 2012.
