Purnell is strengthening its position in the world of football having just signed up as Official Timekeeper of AS Monaco.

Fresh from becoming the official watch partner of the Ballon d’Or, triple-axis tourbillon specialist Purnell, has signed with the French club that has fielded the likes of Emmanuel Petit, Thierry Henry and Kylian Mbappé.

“Monaco is a unique concentration of beauty, prestige and dynamism, just like our masterpieces,” says Maurizio Mazzocchi, CEO of Purnell. “Both our brands are rare jewels in our respective fields, and we recognize ourselves with AS Monaco’s tagline: Rise. Risk. Repeat.”

The partnership will result in a co-branded watch collection to be revealed during the spring.

“We are delighted to welcome Purnell to the AS Monaco family,” says Oleg Petrov, Vice-President & CEO of AS Monaco. “Purnell is a brand recognized for its know-how, its audacity, its sense of innovation and performance, notions that fit perfectly with our philosophy. We are looking forward to this collaboration.”
