Hitting 3000 in Major League baseball is pretty major and when Derek Jeter achieved this a couple of days ago on July 9, Movado Group Inc, for whom Jeter is a brand ambassador, launched a special edition Bold watch in celebration of the super star and this achievement. Jeter is the first Yankee to achieve this remarkable feat.
This special edition watch is the innovative new Movado BOLD bracelet model featuring an indigo blue metallic dial customized with Jeter’s number ‘2’ at 2:00. The case-back is engraved to commemorate his 3000th hit. Only 300 pieces have been issued. Packaged in a special sleeve accompanied by a thank you note from Derek, each watch retails for $550. Movado will be donating $100 for each piece sold to Derek Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation, which Jeter established in 1996, his rookie year, to develop youth programs.
“I sincerely thank Movado for their generous support of the Turn 2 Foundation,” said Derek Jeter. “I started the foundation in 1996 to encourage kids looking for direction to pursue healthy lifestyles and academic excellence. Made possible by our supporters, our programs help these children develop the skills and character they’ll need to become tomorrow’s leaders.”
NOTE: As of July 13, this watch is close to being sold out!! Interested buyers should call 1-888-4-MOVADO just in case.
