Barcelona players receive customised watches

First published: 05-10-2011

Footballers playing for FC Barcelona have each been given an exclusive watch, which was designed by team supporter Seiko.

The watch manufacturer's affiliation with the team began in the spring when it was named as the club's official watch partner for the next three years.

Players for the first team squad and manager Josep Guardiola were given the timepiece which comes from the company's new Sportura collection, which includes 14 watches created for a variety of sports and feature both quartz and kinetic movements.

The players posed for pictures with their new watches, which were given in presentation boxes.

Each of the chronograph designs, which have a black leather strap with contrasting red underside, features an image of the club's badge on the watch face.

During September, Seiko was one of the luxury watch brands which took part in the Watch World 2011 awards show in India, alongside the likes of Citizen, Swarovski and Zenith.
