Movado watches represent style, simplicity, luxury, and sophistication. It’s no wonder their brand ambassadors are also stylish and sophisticated.
Some of the most successful people in today’s generation, having climbed the ladder of success (and then some), are representatives of the brand. These names include the likes of Derek Jeter, Lily Collins, and Wynton Marsalis.
Lily Collins was born in England and is most famously known for her acting career in films such as “The Blind Side,” “Priest,” and “Mirror Mirror.” What most people don’t know is that she is the daughter of legendary musician Sir Phil Collins.
Lily Collins was chosen at a young age by Chanel to wear one of their gowns at the 2007 Bal des Debutantes (a charity ball.) Her style, grace, and exquisite beauty radiate the style that is Movado.
Derek Jeter is quite possibly the most recognizable name in baseball, if not all of sports. He brings an entire new level of play to baseball and his awards prove that. He has played 18 seasons- all with the New York Yankees. In that time, he has won five World Series, been selected as an All-Star 13 times, received five Golden Glove awards, received five Silver Slugger awards, received two Hank Aaron awards, and has grasped the coveted Roberto Clemente award.
He is the all-time Yankees career leader in hits (3,304), games played (2,585), stolen bases (348), and at bats (10,551). He is also the 28th player in Major League Baseball history to accumulate 3,000 hits.
His accolades alone prove success and it’s no wonder Movado has sought after him to reflect their own level of success.
Wynton Marsalis is a celebrated Movado brand ambassador. He is an internationally acclaimed musician, composer, and bandleader. Wynston has nine Grammy Awards and is the only artist to have won a Grammy in five consecutive years. In 1997 Wynton Marsalis became the first jazz musician ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music for his epic oratorio “Blood on the Fields.”
In 1987 Wynton Marsalis co-founded a jazz program at Lincoln Center and in July 1996, due to its remarkable success, Jazz at Lincoln Center was installed as a new constituent of Lincoln Center, the renowned arts organization of which Movado is a long standing sponsor and proud supporter.
Movado brings a new class of elegance and success to its fine watchmaking which is understandably why these ambassadors and few others can only be represented by such a remarkable company.
