The Derek Jeter Captain Series commemorates the strength, performance and leadership of the Major League legend.

Baseball legend Derek Jeter, who played his last home game with the Yankees last September, will be remembered for his outstanding 20-year career in Major League Baseball as one of the “good guys” of the sport. Movado commemorates his legacy with a collection of special edition timepieces.

“Teaming up with Movado to create this new collection of watches has been a real honor,” says Derek Jeter, a five-time World Series champion. “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.”

The Captain Series is a trio of watches created in close collaboration with Jeter. Each Captain Series dial is customized with the player’s number 2 in position at 2 o'clock. All three models share a special commemorative Derek Jeter Captain Series caseback design, and come in specially designed packaging featuring the Captain Series seal.

“Movado is very proud to be associated with Derek Jeter,” says Efraim Grinberg, chairman & CEO of the Movado Group. “Derek has long been one of the most dynamic players in Major League Baseball. He gives 100% of himself both on and off the field, and embodies what the Movado brand stands for – passion, innovation and a commitment to excellence. 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.”

The two sporty Movado BOLD Derek Jeter watches feature cushion-shaped 44mm cases made of solid or black ion-plated stainless steel, water resistant to 100 meters. Other features include a rotating blue elapsed time reflector ring, screw-down crowns, textured dials in either black or silver-tone, with a sunray patterned signature Movado dot, a blue number 2 and markers to match, and a black silicone strap with blue lining. The third Captain Series model is a commemorative Derek Jeter Museum Sport watch on a perforated black rubber strap. Water resistant to 30 meters, it features a 42mm sized case in black PVD-finished stainless steel, with elegant, gray vertical stripes on the black dial, a polished black signature dot, stylized blue numeral 2 and a date display in addition to hour, minute and seconds functions. Each is powered by a Swiss quartz movement.

“We are honored to commemorate Derek Jeter’s outstanding baseball career and legacy with this watch collection,” says Grinberg. “We wanted Derek’s fans to share in the excitement of his final Major League season through these exciting timepieces.”
