WATCH and luxury gift manufacturer Bellagio Europe (‘Bellagio’) has secured an exclusive three-year worldwide licensing deal with Manchester City - and the very first edition is to produce the official Premiership Winners’ collectable timepiece.

Bellagio, based at Cranage, launched the Winners Watches on May 14, the day of the victory parade in Manchester.

The Manchester City crest adorns the watch face and is surrounded by the wording ‘Premier League Champions’.

Bellagio founder Mikey Cohen is the foremost designer in the world of collectable and winners’ watches for sporting clubs and music artists.

He has designed winners’ collectable timepieces for many English and Scottish Premiership Champions, European Champions and FA Cup winners for over 20 years.

Since 2004 Mikey has designed winners watches for teams including Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Celtic, Rangers, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

His designs include a History of Manchester United watch, History of Liverpool FC Watch, Celtic Lisbon Lions 50 years Anniversary watch, Spurs ‘End of White Hart Lane’ watch, and The Who 50th Anniversary.

Mikey said: “Where there is a celebration to be had and a collectable watch produced, it is more than likely this has been designed by me.

“Our aim to is look after the fans and give them the service they deserve. Our products not only look good, it is something they can cherish forever and enjoy.

“My first football match was being taken to Maine Road at the age of five in 1978, and it was one of my proudest moments when I designed the 2011/12 Premiership Champions watch for the Blues.

“So to have designed the official champions watch for City’s third Premiership win is a great honour.”

Celebrities who own timepieces designed by Mikey include Sugar Ray Leonard, Rio Ferdinand, Barry Gibb, Richard Fleeshman, Tom Jones, Usher, Justin Timberlake’s TN Kids Band and many more.

Mikey even presented two watches to Rihanna on her ‘Loud’ tour backstage at the Manchester Arena few years ago before the show.
