Maurice Lacroix is delighted to announce a three-year partnership with FC Barcelona
as the "FC Barcelona official watch partner"
FC Barcelona is proud of its Swiss origins (the club was founded by Hans Gamper from Winterthur), just as it is proud of being the emblem of the local Catalan community. But FC Barcelona is much “more than a club”, as expressed in its motto “més que un club”.
FC Barcelona is the no 1 sports club in the world in many respects. It has won all football’s most prestigious dream trophies multiple times. It attracts only the best players in the world. It displays an amazing and unique onetouch style of football.
It invests in and nurtures the most promising talents, and supports numerous charitable organizations.
Since the launch of its first watch in 1975, the stylish Swiss watches conceived by the creative, ambitious design team at Maurice Lacroix have gained international recognition. Maurice Lacroix timepieces offer eclectic and playful designs, patented technologies and new ultra-performing materials. All are imbued with the enduring values of quality, reliability and authenticity.
Just like FC Barcelona, Maurice Lacroix is a symbol of success that is all about style, substance, and a relentless passion for progress. Riding this wave of shared values and ambitions, the Swiss watchmaker and the Spanish football club make a perfect team in jointly exploring innovative ways of reaching out to both football fans and watch lovers.
FC Barcelona and Maurice Lacroix aim to remain close to their fans, speak the same language, and offer every one of them a high-quality Swiss luxury product. An affordable “fan’s” watch will provide an entry-level opportunity for Swiss timepiece ownership. For lovers of mechanical timepieces or for those wishing to make the big jump, a stunning “player’s” watch and a sophisticated “executive” model will also be sold in the 15 FC Barcelona boutiques and in the extensive worldwide network of official Maurice Lacroix retailers. Within Europe’s biggest stadium, the partnership will be communicated through an array of impressive assets such as the 230-metre LED pitch-side advertising boards, the 4th referee LCD screen, giant Maurice Lacroix clocks and an exclusive presence in all VIP areas of Camp Nou.
« Maurice Lacroix is proud and very excited about this exceptional partnership.
In reaching this agreement, Maurice Lacroix and FC Barcelona, two organizations known for their progressive thinking, have conceived much more than a partnership. Their concerted entrepreneurial spirit and intuitive commercial thinking ability is the start of a dynamic new chapter in both parties’ history.
