TUSTIN, Calif. – September 10, 2012 – Jorg Gray, an American watch brand designed to define your time, today announced it will release a limited edition, signature timepiece in conjunction with brand ambassador and soccer phenomenon Clint Dempsey.
This announcement comes on the heels of Dempsey’s transfer from Fulham FC to Tottenham Hotspur FC. The timepiece marks the third commemorative limited edition piece produced by Jorg Gray, with additional models celebrating the success of brand ambassadors including MotoGP racer Ben Spies and IndyCar driver Alex Tagliani. With a limited run of only 1,000 pieces being produced, the Clint Dempsey Limited Edition Game Timer watch is sure to become a highly-sought collectors’ item.
The Jorg Gray 2500-22 features a black plated bezel with a layered dial and applied index featuring Swiss ISA SOCCER TIMER movement with date display. Clint Dempsey’s signature as well as his nickname, Deuce, is emblazoned on the watch face under a mineral crystal lens.
The look is finished with an integrated rubber strap with deployment buckle and the entire piece is water resistant up to 100 meters. The back of the case boasts an embossed soccer ball with the edition number stated underneath.
Enthusiasts can purchase the limited edition at select Jorg Gray authorized dealers around the world next month or online at www.jorggray.com beginning for $795 USD.
I knew exactly what I wanted when I began conceptualizing this timepiece, said Dempsey. Jorg Gray was willing to step outside the box and let me run with the design. This watch is 100 percent me - the perfect combination of edge and style. As I make the trek north to White Hart Lane to my new home on and off the field, I know I can count on my Jorg Gray watch to keep me on time and feeling right at home wherever I may be.
The partnership between Jorg Gray and Clint Dempsey started in early 2012 as the soccer legend began one of his most successful seasons to date. The Texas-born player was ranked the top mid-field scorer in the English Premier League in 2011, and is only the second American to score goals in multiple world cup tournaments.
Hot on the heels of soccer superstars including Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney, Dempsey ranked fourth in the English Premier League for goals scored for the 2011-2012 season – an astonishing achievement for an American excelling in the world’s top league.
The Limited Edition Clint Dempsey Game Timer gives soccer enthusiasts and watch aficionados alike a chance to experience a truly exceptional timepiece, said Trevor Gnesin, president of Jorg Gray. The ruggedness of the Clint Dempsey piece combined with the intricate detailing makes this watch strong enough to take on any game-time situation, but sophisticated enough to sport for even the finest of events. We think Dempsey fans will flock to the piece and look forward to celebrating Clint’s continued success with Tottenham.
