Movado has launched a special edition Bold watch to celebrate baseball superstar and Movado brand ambassador Derek Jeter’s 3000th Major League hit on July 9. Jeter is the first Yankee to achieve this feat. The watch features an indigo blue metallic dial customized with Jeter’s number 2 positioned prominently at 2 o’clock.
This special edition watch uses the new Movado Bold bracelet. The caseback is engraved to commemorate Jeter’s 3000th hit. Only 300 pieces have been issued. Packaged in a special sleeve accompanied by a thank you note from Derek, each will retail for $550. Movado will donate $100 for each piece sold to Derek Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation.
“We are extremely proud of our long standing partnership with Derek Jeter and the Turn 2 Foundation,” said Mary Leach, Chief Marketing Officer, Movado Group, Inc. “It is such an honor to be a part of this historic occasion, and we are very excited to introduce this special edition Movado Bold timepiece to commemorate Derek’s incredible career milestone.”
Derek Jeter established the Turn 2 Foundation in 1996, his rookie year, and has been actively involved in its inspiring and successful youth programs since its inception.
“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.”
