Throw Your Deuces Up!

by Sofroina Timmons

Profile! Show me your deuces. I would tell you what mine look like but I have already given out one of my coined phrases for free. How about really showing your deuce by wearing a Deuce watch. Deuce Brand came up with the concept of urban sport and fashion in October 2009 by CEO Gary Hughes, taking a social band and making it functional for water and contact sports - - essentially assisting an athlete to perform at his/her highest level.

The bands come in over 25 different colors so no matter what your style there is a look that you can coordinate to fit your persona. Deuce also offers a customized feature to personalize and promote your sport, club, organization, fund raising events and business through fashion, color and logo print.

The Original Watch Line is the current collection that comes in two styles GI (Generation I) and GII (Generation II).

Say a little bit about the name of the brand.
Deuce Brand name comes from the #2. It is the # that I (Gary Hughes, CEO) wore during my sports career. Deuce Brand is also relevant in the urban world: throw a deuce (means throw a peace sign).
