British round-the-world sailor, Alex Thomson, has unveiled yet another death-defying stunt.
Having established himself as a daredevil of the sport of sailing, this latest stunt involves Thomson, on a kiteboard, chasing his IMOCA open 60 HUGO BOSS boat upwind and attaching himself via a rope to the top of the boat’s mast. The skipper then utilises the speed of the race boat to propel himself 280ft into the air, sending him surfing above the vast HUGO BOSS yacht. When Thomson reaches the peak of his flight, he detaches himself from the boat and expertly controls his descent back down, landing the kiteboard on the water in true Alex Thomson style, all whilst wearing a stylish BOSS suit.
This BOSS chronograph with a blackened stainless steel casing pays homage to the sport of sailing. The honeycomb texture of the dial and the colour palette are oriented to the design of the HUGO BOSS yacht and underscore the sporty character of the watch. The countdown function can be set to up to 10 minutes according to the event, and the flexible silicone strap wraps comfortably around the wrist guaranteeing cool branding with its large logo lettering in a contrasting colour. A distinctive men’s accessory that looks just as persuasive on dry land as it does on the high seas.
These sporty BOSS sunglasses with mirror lenses and lightweight synthetic frames even impressed skipper Alex Thomson during his Skywalk stunt.
And no wonder: a flexible rubber coating and hinges with a rugged frictional system guarantee an exceptionally high level of comfort, and the dynamic graphic pattern is based on the design of the HUGO BOSS yacht.
The perfect combination of an ultra-modern look and great functionality that is sure to thrill not only sailors.
