New York Yankee captain and shortstop, Derek Jeter stole the show at yesterday’s All Star Game (although he didn’t get the MVP award), and now the charismatic, soon to retire, baseball great will be immortalized in time. Movado, a company that creates exquisite wrist watches ideal for frequent travelers who need to keep time, is launching a special edition collection to celebrate the career of baseball legend and longtime Movado brand ambassador Derek Jeter.
The Captain Series is a trio of watches designed to honor Derek for his leadership on and off the field and to commemorate the close of his extraordinary 20-year Major League Baseball career. Each dial is customized with Derek's number "2" in position at 2 o'clock. All three models share a special commemorative Derek Jeter Captain Series case-back design, and come in specially designed packaging featuring the Captain Series seal.
"Teaming up with Movado to create this new collection of watches has been a real honor," Jeter said. "Movado has been a special partner of mine for over eight years and I am privileged to have had the opportunity to collaborate with such a world-class organization."
The watches are perfect for fans of this Hall of Fame-bound base baller (such as your LA Travel Diva Examiner who wants one badly) to help his memory alive for ever. It’s available for pre-sale purchase for $695 at Movado.com.
"Movado is very proud to be associated with Derek Jeter," remarked Efraim Grinberg, Chairman & CEO, Movado Group, Inc. "Derek is one of the most dynamic players in Major League Baseball. He gives 100% of himself both on and off the field and embodies what the Movado brand stands for – passion, innovation and a commitment to excellence. The Captain Series has been a wonderful way to celebrate our longstanding partnership with Derek and to demonstrate how proud we are of all of his accomplishments. We are honored to commemorate his outstanding baseball career and legacy with this watch collection and wanted Derek's fans to share in the excitement of his final Major League season through these exciting timepieces."
Of course there are still more games to go in this year’s baseball season where we can watch the Jete strut his awesome stuff.
