Armaan Swiss Diamond Watches signed Olympic gold medal basketball team member Dwight Howard as its official NBA Brand Ambassador for all brand related initiatives, including marketing, promotion and publicity. In honor of Dwight Howard's efforts to help bring the US team back to glory, Armaan Swiss Diamond Watches designed a full-pave, $100,000 diamond watch for him. The NBA star will be making a series of in-store appearances at select Armaan retailers in the US in 2008 and 2009.

Dwight Howard plays forward center on the NBA Orlando Magic team and is a member of the NBA All-Star Team. Howard, who is one of the top rebounders in the sport, was the No. 1 pick out of high school for the 2004 NBA draft. He was selected as one of the 12 players for Team USA for the Beijing 2008 Games along with basketball superstars Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade.

“Dwight Howard is an inspiration for all of us not only for his outstanding contributions to the sport, but also for his philanthropic work,” says Nirav Bhasanli, president of Armaan Swiss Diamond Watches. “We are proud to be associated with Dwight, an athlete who is the slam dunk champion both on and off the court.”

Howard's limited edition Armaan Watch is first of only 10 to be available worldwide. The stainless steel automatic watch with its dramatic 48-millimeter case is covered in 14 carats of the best VVS1, G/H color, conflict-free diamonds. Howard's name and his team number 12 are engraved on the case back. Armaan Swiss Diamond Watches are available at leading fine jewelry and watch retailers including Rocks Fine Jewelry, Orlando; Feldmar Watch Company, Los Angeles; Hours, Minutes, Seconds, Beverly Hills; King Jewelers, Aventura, Fla., among others.

Armaan Swiss Diamond Watches are designed and built by a team of Swiss watch masters who use only conflict-free, high quality diamonds and high quality Swiss movements and parts. Armaan Swiss Diamond Watches are produced as limited-edition timepieces for the entire world wide market and were introduced in 2007. Because of the exceptional style and craftsmanship of Armaan watches, they have a loyal following among famous sports players like NBA stars as well as Hollywood stars such as Jennifer Hudson, Daytime TV star Darrin Brooks and actress Shannon Elizabeth, among many others.
