Tudor: Timekeeper of the Rugby World Cup 2019

With Tudor having New Zealand’s national rugby team, the All Blacks, as their brand ambassadors since 2017, Tudor becoming the official timekeeper of the Rugby World Cup doesn’t come as a surprise. 

The All Blacks are looking to defend their back-to-back championship and hold up the Webb Ellis Cup for the fourth time in history in true “Born to Dare” spirit. The ambition doesn’t look too daunting with the team having an over 75% win rate. That win rate solidifies them as not only the best rugby team, but also one of the best teams in sports history.

This year’s Rugby World Cup is hosted by Japan, which started last September 20 and ends November 2. This is the first time the best rugby teams from all around the world get to run, kick, and tackle on Asian soil. Only held every four years, it’s an event rugby fans have been waiting a long time for. And with over 2 million people having gone to the last one, attendance is only expected to rise this year.

In light of Tudor being the official timekeeper, the luxury watch brand gave all 23 Rugby World Cup referees a special edition of the Black Bay Chrono model fitted with a rubber strap, instead of the standard steel bracelet. It also has the World Cup’s logo engraved on the caseback, with the text “Official Timekeeper” under it.

Of course, Tudor didn’t forget about their partnership with the All Blacks and released the Black Bay Chrono Dark. It’s limited to the overall number of players the All Blacks team has ever had, a total of 1,181 at the moment. Every time they recruit a new player into their ranks, Tudor will add one more, with each piece having its number engraved on the caseback.
