Bulova Announces Launch of a Series of Co-Branded Watches

Bulova 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 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.
