In February this year I made my way over to the US to meet a few people & to continue building UJ over in the States.
I left with no intention of signing anyone. I came home 7 days with later with the prospect of having Patty Mills joining the UJ family. It was exciting.
It's really humbling to know that one of the icons of modern of Australian sport believes in what we're doing at UNCLE JACK and wants to be a part of it. Patty said that his values matched with UJ, I couldn't agree more.
In the following month or two, we started designing a watch collection. It works a little something like this;
First we start with a broad concept. With Patty, we both wanted it to be a cool combination of fashion, sport & leisure - a watch that you can wear on & off the court. We then added some colour, sampled, revised & finally came up with a collection that we were so proud of.
The content & footage of Patty that you see across the UJ website was shot in Sydney at this really cool rooftop basketball court in late June. The shoot was a lot of fun & Patty was a wizard in front of the camera.
Here's a pic of myself & the great man!
The Patty Mills x UJ collection is limited to only 250 per colour. They're going to sell out.
