SAN DIEGO, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Original Grain Watch Co. ("Original Grain"), the brand specializing in unique story-telling timepieces, launches The New York Yankees Watch featuring wood from original 1923 New York Yankee Stadium seats.
The stadium's signature blue seats have been reclaimed to create 2,008 modern and elegant timepieces set against black stainless steel. The striking design is powered by an automatic Swiss Movement featuring a 40-hour power reserve. No two watches will be exactly alike.
"Consumers have a great desire to wear timepieces that tell more than the time—they tell a story. To introduce original wood from the iconic Yankee Stadium, one of the most celebrated cathedrals in all of sports, is an exciting progression for Original Grain. This watch is a tribute to the legendary stories that took place at the original Yankee Stadium and the legions of fans who cherished those moments." -Paul Buss, CEO Original Grain.
Due to the rarity of the available 1923 Yankee Stadium wooden seats, only 2,008 pieces will be available, each numbered and engraved on the glass caseback. "2008" was chosen to commemorate the final season of the old Yankee Stadium.
Retailing for $1,850 USD, the timepiece includes an interchangeable leather strap and an exclusive wooden gift box set with trophy case for display, all of which is available for a very limited time as of May 11, 2017 exclusively on OriginalGrain.com.
Original Grain is an official licensee of MLB.
