Official description

Purnell, renowned for its innova0ve watchmaking and mastering the Tourbillon escapement, proudly presents a new watch collabora0on with Marcell Jacobs, Olympics 100m gold winner. Together, they present the new Marcell Jacobs Edi6on Escape Primo in striking Titanium Blue Max—an excep0onal 0mepiece that embodies absolute excellence and the spirit of chasing one's dreams.

Marcell Jacobs's meteoric rise to fame culminated with his stunning 9.80 record 6me in the men's 100m finale at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, securing him the top spot on the podium. This illustrious compe00on is the very stage where Usain Bolt secured three successive victories in 2008, 2012, and 2016, and Carl Lewis accomplished two consecu0ve wins in 1984 and 1988.

The new Marcell Jacobs Edi6on Escape Primo stands out with its 48mm case craOed from Titanium Blue Max—an epitome of boldness and sophis6ca6on inspired by his winning ouEit in Tokyo. At its heart beats Purnell's Caliber P11 with the World's Fastest Triple-Axis Tourbillon, a feat of engineering that astounds watch enthusiasts worldwide. Purnell's latest technological breakthrough is the complete redesign of the crown for ergonomic wearability, now emblazoned with Marcell Jacobs's logo—an emblem of a true partnership between the brand and the celebrated athlete. This technology allows Marcell to compete wearing this ultra light masterpiece.
