Girard-Perregaux Celebrates U.S. Soccer Star and Gold Medalist Alex Morgan

New York, NY (September 7, 2012) – Girard-Perregaux, iconic luxury Swiss watch brand, was proud to honor U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team gold medalist Alex Morgan and celebrate her accomplishments during Fashion’s Night Out in New York City. Morgan helped lead the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team to a gold medal at the London Summer Olympics with three goals and team-high four assists.

Guests including Olympians Tim Morehouse, Dagmara Wozniak and Emily Hughes as well as Tom Murro and other personalities attended the celebration and enjoyed a selection of rose and white gold Girard-Perregaux timepieces, Louis Latour wines, “gold inspired” food by Tealicious with Chef Julian Medina and gold macaroons.

“We are very happy to honor Alex Morgan in her accomplishments during the games these past months”, said Sowind President of Americas (Girard-Perregaux and JeanRichard) Michael Margolis. “Her work and dedication on and off the field are an inspiration to us all. Her last second goal against Canada still gives me, and many soccer fans, the goosebumps.”

“It was a great honor to represent the United States in these games and bringing the gold medal back home was an amazing feeling”, said Morgan. “I am very appreciative of Girard-Perregaux’s friendship. I love the elegance and attention to detail they apply to every single one of their timepieces and I had a really great time celebrating Fashion’s Night Out and our Olympic achievements at their beautiful boutique.”

Morgan, a fan of the brand and watches, was seen wearing a Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye watch. The timepiece proves that, just like her intricate soccer techniques, feminine shapes lend themselves wonderfully to complicated movements. The Cat’s Eye Small Second features a rose gold case and bezel set with diamonds and a GP manufacture automatic movement. The small second is discretely underlined at 9 o’clock while the date indicator remains at 3 o’clock.
