Bulova has announced the addition of a new timepiece to the Bulova Accu•Swiss Treble Collection celebrating the relationship between Manchester United, the international football team and Bulova Corporation, Manchester United’s Official Timekeeper.
Inspired by the team, and featuring the Manchester United crest on the dial with dial-ring accents in the team’s signature red, the new watch, style 63B199, is part of a three-watch collection. The Treble Collection name is inspired by the Treble honor, given to a football club that wins three trophies in a single season. In the 1998-1999 season, Manchester United achieved this rare and celebrated feat, becoming the only English club to ever win the FA Cup, Premier League Title, and UEFA Champions League Title during one season.
Crafted in Switzerland, the Treble Collection is part of the larger Bulova Accu•Swiss Percheron Collection, with watches constructed in a unique capsule form, anchored together with through-case screws to form an integral case. A separate sub-bezel, designed as part of the case, holds the crystal and keeps the watch secure with a series of specially designed bumpers to deflect shocks.
In stainless steel with brushed finish, the new 26-jewel automatic timepiece includes an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, vertically brushed black dial, gunmetal Arabic and stick markers, red-tipped second hand, calendar, luminous hands and markers, four-screw caseback, black rubber strap, double-press deployant closure, and water resistance to 100 meters.
Also included in the Treble Collection are style 63B195, with silver dial and full color Manchester United crest, and style 65B165, in titanium with black ion-plated finish and black dial with red accents.
