Bulova Manchester United Club Watch

World renowned watch maker Bulova presents the Manchester United Club Watch, a tribute to the world’s most famous football club. The modern classic boasts nine design links to Manchester United’s prolific history, expressed as touchstone details on the dial, case and leather strap, and is powered by Bulova’s proprietary UHF high-performance quartz movement. The watch will retail for US$499. Destined to quickly become a collector’s item, the Manchester United Club Watch not only mines the franchise’s rich history, but also scores on design ingenuity.
The 1878 at the 18- minute marker recognizes the club’s beginning as a team of railway workers and its original green and gold colors. A flourish of train track, between the 12-hour and 18-minute markers, signifies the importance of the Lancashire & Yorkshire railroad to Manchester’s development as the world’s first industrial city.

The 7th hour on the watch, in bold red, is a nod to the #7 jersey, worn by many of the club’s most memorable players; A blacked out 23-minute marker commemorates the fatalities in the tragic 1958 plane crash, killing eight players, journalists and supporters.
The “United Trinity”—Best, Law, Charlton—is honored by the red 7-, 9- and 10-minute markers on the watch, representing their jersey numbers. A red 20-minute marker highlights the club’s league title haul—the highest in the English game. Iconic details include the club crest on the dial, the Red Devil emblem on the crown, and the strap made from vintage-inspired genuine leather to pay homage to the footballs used in the early years of the game.

This timepiece is powered with Bulova’s proprietary UHF high-performance quartz movement for unparalleled accuracy.
