JEANRICHARD congratulates partner Arsenal Football Club on the glorious victory at the world’s oldest football competition – the English FA Cup 2014 – and is proud to have accompanied them as Global Partner and Official Watch on their way to the title.
“We are very happy for Arsenal and would like to congratulate them on such a successful season and especially this Cup victory”, said Bruno Grande, Managing Director of JEANRICHARD. “The team has fought to the last minute for this extraordinary accomplishment and we are already now looking forward to continuing this exciting partnership next season and celebrate even more success with the Gunners.”
The Swiss watchmaker JEANRICHARD announced its status as global partner as well as “Official Watch” of the emblematic London football club Arsenal FC of the English Premier League. This long-term partnership marks a major step forward for the newest oldest Swiss watch brand that is now going to play in the “Premier League” and for Arsenal that has a very strong global following.
“A strong heritage combined with young team spirit and style: Arsenal and JEANRICHARD share the same Philosophy of Life,” said Bruno Grande, CEO of the Swiss watchmaker. “Both are considered forward thinkers in their fields and “passing on the ball” is our common approach. The Gunners just as the JEANRICHARD people are out “on the field” to make the most of every moment and strive to accomplish extraordinary things day in and day out with passion and respect.”
The swiss watchmaker has also launched two editions of the “Arsenal” watch to drive the success of this partnership on all levels.
ABOUT THE ARSENAL TERRASCOPE SPECIAL EDITION
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 The Arsenal logo, 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 sand blasted black titanium, with its fully red dial and matching 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.
