Lionel Messi, football's most prolific goal scorer and arguably the best modern football player, could have chosen any watch company in the world to work with, and he chose Jacob & Co., one of high watchmaking's most creative brands. He said to Jacob Arabo, the founder of Jacob & Co., when the partnership was finalized, "I'll keep trying to do my best on the pitch and together we will realize our vision."
This long-term partnership between two leaders of their respective fields has already created three limited editions of the Epic X Chrono Messi, incorporating the colors of the flag of Argentina, Messi's famous number 10, his stylized "M" logo and his signature on the caseback.
Globally praised for his incredible precision and speed in the beautiful game and followed for his trend-setting lifestyle, Messi worked closely with Jacob & Co, giving his personal input and unique trademarks when designing the Epic X Chrono "Messi" Limited Editions.
"At Jacob & Co., we make sure we partner with the best in the world, or we don't partner at all," says Jacob Arabo, founder, Jacob & Co. "With Messi and the Epic X Chrono, we have certainly accomplished this."
