Graham welcomes MLB Pitcher CJ Wilson as Watch Ambassador

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

A native of Southern California, CJ Wilson, proud Graham Ambassador and Major League Baseball pitcher, brings a new edge to the Graham family. CJ is the first professional baseball player to be signed as a brand Ambassador for Graham, strengthening the brand’s presence in worldwide sports culture. CJ is also the owner of CJ Wilson Racing, which continues the long motorsports heritage of the Graham brand. The motorsports and racing legacy is a defining feature that drew CJ to the brand initially. “I really like that Graham has connections to motorsports. For me, that sends the message that they’re serious about precision and performance, not just style,” says Wilson, now in his 7th year as a Major Leaguer.

CJ has enjoyed great success in his young career, both on the baseball diamond and on the racetrack through CJ Wilson Racing, the latter of which won the 2011 Road Atlanta race in the SCCA Pro Racing MX-5 Cup on September 30th, 2011. But off the field, Wilson has become a pillar in the community for not only his dominance on the field, but it his charitable endeavors through CJ Wilson Childrens Charities, a Dallas-based organization that supports children with chronic and terminal illnesses nationwide. The Charity teams up with childrens hospitals to inspire comfort and hope by helping to believe some of the stresses associated with long-term hospital stays.

Wilson wears owns several GRAHAM watches and particularly loves the Chronofigher Oversize Diver and Silverstone Stowe Classic models. GRAHAM watches are almost emblematic of CJ’s drive for the perfect balance between performance and style on the field and into his daily life. “The Graham brand is bold- and for me standing out is important. I feel boldness- when combined with style- really sets more personality into each design element.”
