TUDOR, official timekeeper for Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan

27th August 2019 

For the very first time, the 9th edition of Rugby World Cup – the world’s third largest sporting event, held every four years – will take place in Asia.

As part of its major partnership with World Rugby, TUDOR is the official timekeeper for Rugby World Cup 2019, which will take place in Japan from 20th September to 2nd November.

Rugby is an uncompromising sport with noble values, a sport for the bold, a true reflection of the spirit that has driven this watchmaking brand since its inception, the team at Edwards Lowell said.

It was the rugby's noble values and robust image, which together reflect the uncompromising watchmaking philosophy that has defined TUDOR since 1926, that led the Swiss brand to join forces with World Rugby in 2017 as part of its #BornToDare campaign. In addition to the men’s and women’s Rugby World Cup and World Cup Sevens, TUDOR also supports the annual U20 World Cups, which provide an international platform to the sport’s future stars. TUDOR has also partnered with World Rugby Awards, which recognise the season’s best teams, players and officials every year. This year, they will be held in Yokohama City on 3 November, the day after the final of Rugby World Cup 2019. Finally, TUDOR supports the Rugby Hall of Fame, an institution established in the town of Rugby, in the UK, where the sport was born in the 1820s, celebrating those who have contributed towards its reputation.
