Gold Medal Celebration

To honor 20 years of Jumpman at the olympic games, Eleven Eleven Watches collaborated with Jordan Brand to produce a very limited watch. Celebrating Jordan’s Gold Medal run in 1992 with the Dream Team and the Gold Medal run by Jordan Brand Athletes(Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Russel Westbrook) at the London games in 2012. The gold 48″ mm watch-face is white and navy featuring date and chronograph timers. The back of the watch is inscribed with the Jumpman logo inside the number 23, along with 1992 Barcelona and 2012 London. Under that “Exclusively for Jordan 200 Pieces”. The watch is packaged in a wooden slide out box containing two removable straps navy and white. The Jordan Brand x Eleven Eleven Gold Medal watch was produce for Jordan Brand Friends and Family limited to 200 pieces. 

I remember seeing the few images released when these were made back in 2012 thinking, what do I have to do to get on that Friends and Family list. I’d only see people like Fat Joe or the owner from SoleFly actually post the watch to social media. Not to forgot the founder and president of Eleven Eleven watches @justinwatches. Several years later, I still haven’t found an answer to that question. I was able to acquire the Gold Medal Celebration watch and double up. Check out some stock photos and detailed shots from my Instagram.

As always, I’m looking to add to my Jordan watch collection. If you know someone that is selling please direct them my way. Here is a LINK for some of the pieces I’m still in search of.



Jordan XX3 Alarm Chrono

The Jordan XX3 Alarm Chronograph watch is a sophisticated water-resistant timepiece that celebrates Air Jordan’s landmark 23rd (numbered sneaker) anniversary. The Jordan XX3 designed by Tinker Hatfield can be reflected in each watch most recognizable the super rare Titanium pair. This watch features date and chronograph stopwatch functionality in a stainless steel casing and K1 mineral glass crystal. In 2008 these three watches released exclusively on the Air Jordan Flight Club website limited to 230 of each color for $279.

My fascination for this watch started my Jordan watch collection. I created an Apple Watch Face to match the Black model before purchasing one. This was my way to have the watch without actually having it physically. For some reason, I believe that put an unexplainable energy in the world for me to find the Black model. To my satisfaction the watch was even better in person. At the time of the release, NT forums expected the watches to sit at a retail more than a general release sneaker launch. Surprisingly over the years the value has increased significantly with sold listings reaching over $1400. At the beginning of this year I found a seller with the Titanium and Silver face for a decent deal. Set complete! 

Set Complete

Next year Jordan Brand is rumored to release the Air Jordan XX3 again. I would love to see them bring these watches back with some different colors.

Choose Your Flight

The Air Jordan 2011’s sneaker technology included the first-ever interchangeable midsole system. Jordan Brand use the phrase “Choose Your Flight,” to promote this signature sneaker worn by then Jordan Brand athlete Dwyane Wade. The “Quick” blue midsole unit was equipped with Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot ideal for guards. While the “Explosive” red midsole unit included a 3/4 length encapsulated Air more suited for power players. Jordan Brand launched three watches in collaboration with Casio G-Shock: red for the Explosive unit, blue for the Quick unit and Black for the launch Anthracite colorway.   

This week, I purchased one of the three Jordan Brand G-Shock watches. This set was released in limited quantities during All-Star Weekend 2011 at Westfield Culver City Mall’s Footaction. The retail price was $100 and each color was inspired by the Air Jordan 2011. “The red midsole in the Air Jordan 2011 assists you in becoming explosive and this red Jordan G-Shock is no different.” Jordan Brand included card. Check out the G-Shock Official Press release below.
