JEAN RICHARD, new partner of Arsenal FC


JEAN RICHARD partnership with Arsenal FCJEAN RICHARD kicks off its part­ner­ship with Arse­nal FC. Swiss watch­maker and becomes global part­ner and “offi­cial watch” of the iconic foot­ball club in Lon­don “Pre­mier League”, Arse­nal FC. This long-term col­lab­o­ra­tion is a leap for­ward for the old­est of the new Swiss watch brands, which made ​​its debut on the grounds of the Eng­lish “Pre­mier League” but for Arse­nal, a club sup­ported by his fans world­wide whole.  As watch mak­ing, foot­ball is a phi­los­o­phy of life.

Team­work, com­mit­ment and pas­sion are com­mon val­ues ​​to these two worlds. They are required in the same field of fans, play­ers, col­lec­tors, watch­mak­ers and all those affected by the his­tory and pio­neer­ing spirit JEAN RICHARD and Arse­nal. It is there­fore nat­ural that these two com­pa­nies decided to embark on a new jour­ney together.

Born in 1886 in Wool­wich when a group of work­ers came together to found the “Arse­nal”. It is a Lon­don club that became one of the most suc­cess­ful foot­ball teams in his­tory, both in Eng­land and Europe. Today, over 125 years later, the “Gun­ners” are not only famous for their many suc­cesses or their his­tory. Arsene Wenger’s phi­los­o­phy, which seeks the best new play­ers to make the stars of tomor­row, is known world­wide. Like Arse­nal that recruits and trains young tal­ents, Daniel Jean­richard, founder of the watch mak­ing indus­try in the late sev­en­teenth cen­tury, had a mis­sion to edu­cate the next gen­er­a­tion and to pro­mote the val­ues ​​that fed his phi­los­o­phy of life: the pas­sion for work, authen­tic­ity, fair play, team spirit and loyalty.

Jean Richard took care to con­vey his knowl­edge and spirit of excel­lence for future gen­er­a­tions. He played a vital role in cre­at­ing a learn­ing sys­tem still used today. “Strong her­itage asso­ci­ated with a young team spirit and a mod­ern style: Arse­nal and JEAN RICHARD share the same phi­los­o­phy of life” says Bruno Grande, CEO of the Swiss watch­maker. “We are con­sid­ered pio­neers in our field and we have a com­mon goal: to pass the ball. The Gun­ners, as JEAN RICHARD men are on the ground to enjoy every moment and do the extra­or­di­nary every day with pas­sion and respect”.

Tim­ing, rhythm, style and ele­gance are the key ele­ments of the style of play of Arse­nal and Jean Richard brand, “says Vinai Venkate­sham, Direc­tor of Sales and Mar­ket­ing for Arsenal.”Our two com­pa­nies go so well together that we gladly accepted this long-term part­ner­ship with JEAN RICHARD.” JEAN RICHARD was one of the first lux­ury watch­mak­ers sup­port foot­ball at inter­na­tional level, and from his Ital­ian adven­ture 2003. As “offi­cial watch” of Arse­nal, the brand now sup­ports the Gun­ners as well at home, in the impres­sive Emi­rates Sta­dium, in their move­ments out­side. Besides a marked dif­fer­ence in the sta­dium on game day pres­ence Swiss watch­maker will soon unveil a time­piece “Arse­nal” for the lim­ited suc­cess of this part­ner­ship res­onates at all lev­els edi­tion. ABOUT JEANRICHARD The Jean­Richard watches are for those who love chal­lenges, from the con­quest of the unknown, enjoy life savor­ing every moment as if it were the last. Advo­cat­ing authen­tic­ity and refuse to com­pro­mise, both in terms of qual­ity and design. Free spir­its who flout con­ven­tions and impose their own rules, trav­el­ing off the beaten path The Jean Richard watches are now avail­able in four col­lec­tions that pay trib­ute to ele­ments that gov­ern nature: Ter­ras­cope, Aquas­cope, Aero­scope and 1681.
