Jorg Gray Adds Record-Holding Soccer Star Clint Dempsey to Growing Roster of Elite Brand Ambassadors

Attacking Midfielder Joins the Team of Internationally Admired Watch Brand

TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 21, 2012) - Jorg Gray, an American watch brand designed to change the way we view time, today announced its partnership with the internationally renowned, all-time leading American goalscorer in the English Premier League, Clint Dempsey. The Texas native, currently residing in London, is known for his aggressive, high-intensity performances for Fulham Football Club and the United States Men's National Soccer Team. Dempsey joins the Jorg Gray family in the midst of the Fulham FC season -- just before the highly anticipated match between the U.S. Men's National Team and Italy on February 29.

Recognized as one of the most talented players in his sport, Dempsey continually garners the respect of the soccer world with his unstoppable scoring ability and charismatic personality. With over 18 goals already logged in 2012, Dempsey is currently the seventh leading scorer in the league for a single season and boasts an unprecedented two hat tricks in competition. Additionally, the attacking midfielder has scored more goals than any other player since the 2010 World Cup and holds the record for the fastest goal in U.S. history.

"Soccer is about passion, heart and being true to what you stand for," said Dempsey. "Jorg Gray has grown their incredible brand of watches with a passion for the craft and a strong belief in no compromises. I look forward to promoting Jorg Gray on and off the field."

As the newest face of Jorg Gray, Dempsey will appear at retailers around the globe as he showcases Jorg Gray's entire collection. A limited edition timepiece will be introduced to the market in the coming months -- incorporating the style and attitude of the world's leading footballer.

"We are eager to watch Clint build upon his incredible momentum during the rest of the soccer season," said Trevor Gnesin, president of Jorg Gray. "His creativity and instincts on the field make him an indisputable fit for the Jorg Gray brand. We're proud to have him on our team and look forward to this amazing opportunity to work with a world-class athlete at the top of his game."
