SEIKO presented the new SEIKO Sportura FCB chronograph to the FCB team players
On September 30, 2011, the first team players of FC Barcelona received from SEIKO Watch Corporation the new SEIKO Sportura FCB chronograph. At a ceremony held at the Club’s training facilities, Shuji Takahashi, Senior Vice President of SEIKO Watch Corporation, presented watches to all 22 players in the squad as well as to the Manager, Josep Guardiola and his coaching staff. The Sportura FCB chronograph carries the team’s famous ‘blaugrana’ colours on the dial and the club’s motto, ‘Mes que un club’ (More than a club), is engraved on the case back. It had been under development ever since SEIKO’s partnership with FC Barcelona started back in the Spring of 2011, when SEIKO was selected as the Club’s ‘Watch Partner”. The watch is now being presented in retail stores all over the world.
Before the watch presentation to the players, the President of FC Barcelona, Sandro Rosell said,
“We were very pleased to welcome SEIKO as a sponsor of FC Barcelona earlier this year and we are delighted to see how our partnership is growing in every corner of the world. The new SEIKO FC Barcelona watch is beautiful and the club is proud to wear it.”
The first SEIKO Sportura FCB Chronographs were presented by Shuji Takahashi, Senior Vice President of SEIKO WATCH CORPORATION, to the team manager and four leading players in yellow shirts.
