    Brady presented the new Carrera - Heuer 01, a timepiece that honors the brand’s heritage and symbolizes the evolution of the Calibre 1887. The Carrera – Heuer 01 is the first of a new collection that will feature a new case, construction, design and calibre. The dial side reveals the chronograph controls and an openwork date disc while the case-back includes a red column wheel, and a skeleton chronograph bridge.

    Mr. Biver and Brady were joined by actress Molly Sims, who served as the MC for the night, as well as DJ Eve, whose original set further added to the party atmosphere. Guests had the pleasure of watching Brady throw signed footballs to raise money for Best Buddies, a charitable organization that offers the opportunity for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to develop social, leadership and employment skills for greater participation in the community. Several guests were lucky enough to catch the signed footballs that Brady threw into the crowd and took home a special souvenir from the night.

    I'm amazed that Tag Heuer was able to land Tom Brady. He's probably the most popular QB in the NFL, and his 4 Super Bowl championships are proof of this legitimacy. The "Deflategate" controversy, though, is another matter.

    One thing I didn't know about him is that he is actually a Tag Heuer fan. From Hodinkee.com article:

    Mr. Brady is a very friendly guy and is really into watches. It turns out that the first mechanical watch that he bought was a TAG Heuer Carrera, after winning his first Super Bowl in 2002.
