WESTIME NAMED THE OFFICIAL TIMEKEEPER OF THE LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS
The Los Angeles Clippers and Westime today announced a partnership that makes Westime the Official Timekeeper of the Los Angeles Clippers. Westime, in partnership with Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Breitling, is the first official timekeeper for the Clippers organization.
“We are thrilled to make Westime the Official Timekeeper of the Los Angeles Clippers,” Clippers President of Business Operations Gillian Zucker said. “This is a new and exciting partnership for the team and we look forward to continuing our partnership with a brand that is trusted and well-known throughout the southern California area.”
The multi-year partnership begins with the 2014-15 basketball season and includes Westime and Breitling logos on courtside digital signs and LED displays around STAPLES Center. Breitling imagery is displayed during each game’s Countdown to Tip-off, while Westime branding is shown when the shot clock reaches five seconds. The partnership also incorporates Westime and Breitling into radio broadcasts, Clippers.com, social media and off-the-court events.
“For decades Breitling has valued its partnership with Westime in the great city of Los Angeles,” says Thierry Prissert, president of Breitling USA. “By supporting the Clippers, one of the sports world’s most ascendant franchises, Breitling and Westime are sharing their passion for precision, success and achievement with a team that displays those same values during every game.”
Breitling timepieces are available at all Westime locations in Southern California.
