Item of the Day: Movado

movado(Warning: For all you NY Mets and Boston Red Sox fans, just to let you know, today’s Item of the Day deals with the NY Yankees, specifically one of the greatest baseball players ever. Just sayin’.)

He’s about to finish what all would have to agree is an extraordinary 20-year career: Derek Jeter, shortstop and superstar.

In honor of his career, Movado has launched a collection of special edition watches. The Captain Series is comprised of a trio of watches designed to honor Jeter.”

“Teaming up with Movado to create this new collection of watches has been a real honor,” Jeter says. “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.”

Uniting strength, design and performance, the Captain Series comprises three commemorative watches created in close collaboration with Derek Jeter. Each Captain Series dial is customized with Derek’s number “2″ in position at 2 o’clock. All three models share a special commemorative Derek Jeter Captain Series case-back design, and come in specially designed packaging featuring the Captain Series seal.

Actually, since there are no pinstripes on the series, they are suitable for baseball fans no matter the team.

Retail: $695
