In a story uploaded to Instagram by the two-time Olympic athlete Aleksander Kilde, he shared an exciting update with his 247K followers. Reposting a picture from Hublot, the Swiss luxury watchmaker, he struck a pose in a stylish green-grey bomber jacket, adorned with a luxurious platinum watch on his wrist. Aleksander Aamodt Kilde captioned the post, “So excited about this partnership, @hublot!!”

The post announced his partnership with the million-dollar brand, which was proud to have him on board after a record-breaking season in 2022–23 and as he continues his trajectory in the 2023–2024 season after his recent win in the men’s downhill on the Saslong track at Val Gardena. This exciting update by Kilde and Hublot also comes as a redemption moment for the downhill and super-G maestro, after just months ago he faced the fashion police.
