England Rugby has announced a new five-year partnership with Bremont to become the official Timekeeper to England Rugby.
It is a collaboration that celebrates shared values of durability, precision and technical ability.
Through the partnership, Bremont will be delivering all of Twickenham stadium’s official time-related match day content, including branded match clocks around the stadium. In addition, Bremont will produce a series of special edition mechanical chronometers for both fans and players, the first of which will be launched in time for the Guinness Six Nations 2020.
Simon Massie-Taylor, RFU chief commercial officer, commented: “We’re excited to partner with Bremont as the Official Timekeeper to England Rugby.
“We look forward to being a part of the Bremont journey and story, which is one of hard-work, determination and precision – values that are shared throughout the game of Rugby Union.”
Eddie Jones, men’s England head coach added: “Timing is key in rugby, so it’s great to have Bremont on board with England Rugby, supporting the game as the Official Timekeeper.”
Giles English, co-founder of Bremont remarked, “As we’re bringing more and more of our manufacturing capabilities over to the UK and have long since been training up our own workforce of watchmakers on British shores, we welcome the chance to support another English institution, particularly in the run up to the RFU’s 150th anniversary in 2021. Rugby is an incredibly tough sport, steeped in English tradition.
“Seeing Bremont timekeeping preside over the action at the iconic home of British Rugby, Twickenham is something rather special.”
