Movado is celebrating Derek Jeter’s 20-year baseball career with a new collection of watches called the Captain Series.
Jeter, a Movado brand ambassador, has collaborated on timepieces before: The brand created the Movado Series 800 Derek Jeter Automatic Chronographs in 2008 and a special edition BOLD watch to commemorate his 3,000th Major League hit in 2011.
The Captain Series is a collection of three watches, each with a dial customized with Jeter’s number (2) positioned at 2 o’clock and a commemorative caseback design. The pieces start at $695.
“Movado is very proud to be associated with Derek Jeter,” said Efraim Grinberg, chairman and CEO of Movado Group, in a statement. “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.”
Derek Jeter added: “Teaming up with Movado to create this new collection of watches has been a real honor. 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.”
