Mixed martial arts (MMA) is one of the most popular sports on earth and Georges St. Pierre (GSP) helped make it what it is today. GSP competes in the welter and middleweight divisions, with a total of 28 MMA fights, 26 wins, and 2 losses. Now he is looking to commemorate his legacy and career by partnering with luxury watchmaker Egard Watch Co. on a special timepiece made just for him. The watch is absolutely stunning to look at, watch MMA legend GSP and Egard founder Ilan Srulovicz talk about the project below.
A limited edition individually numbered luxury timepiece designed by Georges St. Pierre and Egard Watch Company. Egard Watch Co. proudly introduces Rush, a unique watch designed to honor a legend. Rush is a masterful collection of watches designed by legendary mixed martial artist Georges St. Pierre (GSP) and myself, Ilan Srulovicz, of the Egard Watch to honor a legacy as a lifetime martial artist and world champion MMA fighter.
The Rush watch is currently pre-selling on Kickstarter. This lets us cut out the distributors and wholesalers to offer the piece at a 60% discount for a limited time and get feedback directly from you, the customer! If you love the Rush timepiece now is the time to get in on this amazing watch!
Our high-quality quartz watch allows for an affordable option, while our automatic has a build quality only seen in high-end luxury boutique brands.
- Automatic — A mechanical watch where the mainspring is wound automatically by motion, providing energy to power the watch. The automatic Rush uses sapphire crystal.
- Quartz — A battery operated watch that uses an entelectronic oscillator that is regulated by a quartz crystal to keep time. The quartz Rush uses a hardened mineral crystal and has chronograph functions instead of the Day/Date/Month features found in the automatic version.
No matter what movement you choose, this luxurious timepiece is the perfect daily reminder of strength and precision in and out of the ring.
If you follow MMA like we do, you know that “Rush” is GSP’s nickname so it’s only fitting for the watch to bear it as well. While we do a lot of smartwatch reviews here, we’ve become rather fond of the traditional watch as well. This watch looks particularly awesome so we thought we’d share this Kickstarter with our readers. It’s already crushed its $45,000USD goal and is headed towards $100,000 as of this article.
