Bulova launched a new £350 watch for its famous footballing partner Manchester United yesterday.
The Manchester United Club Watch went on preorder exclusively at the football giant’s webstore, United Direct, with deliveries set for October 1. The watch will also be rolled out to the club’s Old Trafford Megastore as well as global markets in November.
Gregory Thumm, president of Bulova, said: “This historic launch of the Manchester United Club Watch was shaped by a singular design vision, and with utmost attention to quality and craftsmanship.”
Bulova states that the watch – powered by Bulova’s proprietary UHF high-performance quartz movement – has nine specific design links relating to important dates in the club’s history.
Richard Arnold, Manchester United’s group managing director, added: "Bulova has been creating quality time pieces since 1875, just three years before the Club was formed. They understand how the Club’s history makes us who we are and we are delighted Bulova has commemorated some of United’s most important moments within this specially designed watch."
