Manchester United and Bulova have teamed up again to create a Red Devils watch. The watch has been created to reflect United’s rich history.
Below are the specifications that reflect Manchester United’s history in the watch:
- The 1878 at the 18- and 78-minute markers recognises the Club’s beginning as a team of railway workers and its original green and gold colours.
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 shirt, 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 honoured by the red 7-, 9- and 10-minute markers on the watch, representing their shirt numbers.
A red 20-minute marker highlights the Club’s league title haul—the highest in English history.
Iconic details include the Red Devil and the Club crest on both the crown and face.
The strap is made from vintage-inspired genuine leather to pay homage to the footballs used in the early years of the game.
The watch costs £350 and can be purchase from the Manchester United online store, United Driect.
