We are just two weeks away from the start of the Rugby World Cup, which kicks-off in Japan on September 20 and runs for six weeks through to November 2 and official timekeeper for the tournament, Tudor, is ramping up its activity.
New Zealand’s All Blacks, which are Tudor Brand Ambassadors as a team, are favorites to win the tournament.
The World Cup, held every four years, is described as the world’s third largest sporting event. Fans will see Tudor splashed around the stadiums and on the player substitution boards.
The global rugby community boasts 9.1 million players and 338 million fans, connected through 121 national member federations in six regions.
All those eyes will be scrutinising the decisions of referees and officials at the event, who will be keeping time using a special edition Tudor Black Bay Chrono.
It is powered by the manufacture Calibre MT5813, with a column wheel, silicon balance spring and a 70-hour power reserve.
The special edition is worn on a rubber strap and has a commemorative engraving on the back, but will not be available to buy.
