Lionel Messi, football's most prolific goal scorer and arguably the greatest 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."
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."
For this partnership, Jacob & Co. chose the sportiest timepiece in our line, the Epic X Chrono, to adapt for one of the sportiest elite athletes in the world.
