The watch has all roman numerals except for the ‘12’ up top. I was #12 in high school, college and the pros. As I progressed in my career, ‘12’ became how people recognized me. Teammates, coaches and fans would call me ‘12’ or ‘CG12’ so it quickly became how I was identified and has become as much a part of me as my own name. ‘12’ is significant in my life and serves as an alternate take on my own identity.
A number is a number until you make it something bigger and I am still on that journey; the path to make that ‘something’ even bigger with my #12.
I decided to include the hashtag #TwelfthAve as an inscription on the back of the leather strap.
