Deuce: Jorg Gray Clint Dempsey Limited Edition Game Timer watch

Jorg Gray, the brand probably most famous for being seen adorning the wrist of US President Barack Obama, has unveiled a special timepiece created in honour of its football star ambassador Clint Dempsey.

Clint Dempsey is a 29 year old Texas born American football player who has just joined Tottenham Hotspur from Fulham in a £6m deal signed just before the season transfer window closed. He is also a United States national team player. 


The Clint Dempsey Limited Edition Game Timer watch has been limited to a run of 1,000 pieces. The timepiece is said to have been designed in close collaboration with Dempsey. It features a caseback with an embossed soccer ball with edition number and Dempsey’s name and his nickname Deuce displayed under a mineral crystal lens.


The timepiece is a customised version of Jorg Gary’s 2500-22, which features a black-plated bezel with a layered dial and applied index featuring Swiss ISA Soccer Timer movement with date display. The watch has an integrated rubber strap with deployment buckle and is water resistant to 100m.

 “I knew exactly what I wanted when I began conceptualising this timepiece. Jorg Gray was willing to step outside the box and let me run with the design. This watch is 100% me - the perfect combination of edge and style. As I make the trek north to White Hart Lane to my new home on and off the field, I know I can count on my Jorg Gray watch to keep me on time and feeling right at home wherever I may be.” Clint Dempsey

The watch will hit the shops in October and Jorg Gray president Trevor Gnesin believes that “the ruggedness of the Clint Dempsey piece combined with the intricate detailing makes this watch strong enough to take on any game-time situation, but sophisticated enough to sport for even the finest of events.”

Gnesin added: “We think Dempsey fans will flock to the piece and look forward to celebrating Clint’s continued success with Tottenham.”


The watch is the third commemorative limited-edition watch to be released by the American watch brand and the first focussed upon the sport of football. The previous two models celebrated the brand’s partnerships with MotoGP racer Ben Spies and IndyCar driver Alex Tagliani.
