Bulova, a world leader in the manufacturing of timepieces and clocks, today announced the launch of a series of co-branded watches as part of the brand's comprehensive three-year sponsorship agreement with legendary Football Club, Manchester United. The timepieces will be a part of a larger Percheron Collection within Bulova's new Swiss-made line, Accu•Swiss.
The Manchester United Squad watches are available in steel and grade 5 titanium. The collection will also offer a limited-edition gold version crafted with 999.9 pure 24-karat. This novelty design is complete with an exclusive presentation case and can be custom ordered with the Manchester United Club Crest. This specially made timepiece requires a six month lead time. The engineered marvel will be on display at the Bulova booth during this year's BaselWorld preview.
“Our goal with the new Accu•Swiss collections was to stay true to our brand's DNA of creating trend driven, superior timepieces,” said Gregory Thumm, President, Bulova Corporation. “These special-edition Manchester United styles reinforce our reputation as a dynamic force in contemporary timekeeping, and mark another major milestone in our long history of building strategic partnerships.”
As part of the partnership, Bulova will also gift the first team of Manchester United players and coaches with custom co-branded and engraved timepieces. Players and coaches will work closely with Bulova's design team to personalize the watch dial and case back with a signature, photograph, player number or other meaningful symbol for a truly customized, one-of-a-kind timepiece.
The Bulova Accu•Swiss collection, priced at SRP $795-$3,900, will be available at select retailers beginning in May 2014. Price for the special edition gold piece available upon request. Find more information about Bulova Accu•Swiss at http://www.bulovaaccuswiss.com
