JEANRICHARD, the official watch and global partner of Arsenal FC joined Arsenal’s first-team squad at the Training Centre in Hertfordshire, where Managing Director, Bruno Grande, officially handed each player his own personal JEANRICHARD timepiece from the Arsenal FC designed collections, the Aeroscope limited edition and Terrascope special edition. The watches will be worn as part of the players’ Matchday outfits this season, and mark yet another milestone of this long-term partnership between the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer and the emblematic London football club.
“It is my great pleasure to hand over each of these energetic and talented players their personal JEANRICHARD timepiece,” said JEANRICHARD Managing Director Bruno Grande. “This is the next step and a continuation of our partnership as well as an emphasis on the players’ own Philosophy of Life. JEANRICHARD is proud to accompany them on their campaign for the 2014/2015 season and on this exciting journey now also on their wrists.”
First introduced to the international media and watch aficionados in March 2014 at BASELWORLD, the JEANRICHARD Aeroscope Arsenal FC Limited Edition and the Terrascope Arsenal FC Special Edition are both eye-catching timepieces.
The two dynamic and sporty watches with “a strike” of red both reflect the JEANRICHARD Philosophy of Life as well as the strength and passion of the emblematic Gunners and are sure to keep the JEANRICHARD men, Arsenal fans, and any football enthusiasts on the ball.
ABOUT THE ARSENAL TERRASCOPE SPECIAL EDITION
The first of the especially for Arsenal designed pieces is a unique version of the Terrascope watch. With its links to the concept of land and the earth, this model emphasises the players’ skills as displayed on football grounds, together with a team identity that is deeply rooted in their home turf. Housed in a steel case, this watch is equipped with a “vertically satin-finished” grey dial illuminated by touches of red – the colour of the club’s famous emblem, a cannon, is printed at 6 o’clock. This combination of style, performance and elegance recalls the Gunners’ distinctive style of play that has left its mark on many major football stadiums across the globe.
ABOUT THE ARSENAL AEROSCOPE LIMITED EDITION
The second watch created for the Gunners is a limited edition of the Aeroscope Chronograph – numbered and consisting of just 250 watches worldwide. It catches the eye with its case in micro-beaded and sandblasted black titanium, with its fully red dial and black rubber strap. Its young, dynamic, characteristic look reflects the team’s flowing game and rapid passes, and all the power of the ball as it flies through the air. Its small seconds hand, at 3 o’clock, is moulded in the shape of the club’s iconic cannon. Its two chronograph push-pieces, counters and tachometric scale endorse the sporting spirit of a watch designed to share and measure every minute accurately during encounters when every second counts.
The especially for Arsenal FC designed will from now on complement the players’ match-day outfits and support them precisely when it comes to style and elegance for maximum performance.
JEANRICHARD watches have been conceived for all those who enjoy challenges, revel in the unknown, and would like to live their lives to the fullest, savouring the best of each moment.
