Bulgari, official sponsor to the All Blacks, has honoured the longest-serving players and management in the legendary New Zealand team by presenting them with a special commemorative watch.
The four current players in the All Blacks squad (All Blacks captain Richie McCaw, Tony Woodcock, Daniel Carter and Keven Mealamu) who have played 100 or more Test matches have received the special Octo All Blacks 100 Club watch to mark this exceptional achievement. Bulgari also recognised a further 12 members of the current All Blacks management team who have officiated at over 100 Test matches.
The centre of the smoked sapphire crystal features an historical silver fern leaf motif, which is the All Blacks emblem, along with the year 1905, the year the famous All Blacks “Originals” team undertook their ground-breaking tour of North America and Europe.
This aperture as well as the polished and brushed black hour-marker might almost go unnoticed given the bold nature of the dial that affirms its personality by displaying a Maori mask, imprinted like a tattoo on the background, designed by Maori carver Tana Salzmann.
