On the heels of winning the Premier League Championship for the first time in 44 years,
Manchester City FC is teaming up with Richard Mille to form a partnership meant to stand the test of time. The Swiss timepiece maker is now the official timekeeper for Manchester City.
CEO of Richard Mille Europe-Middle East-Africa Peter Harrison praised the accomplishments of the football club.
“We are proud to announce our partnership with Manchester City whilst the Premier League Champions are celebrating such a significant moment in the history of the club. Manchester City’s commitment to excellence and innovation perfectly matches Richard Mille’s desire to create unique timepieces with a strong and inspiring identity. We look forward to long a successful partnership with Manchester City Football Club.”
Harrison also announced a charitable initiative between the watchmaker and football club, called “City in the Community.” Richard Mille will be crafting a unique timepiece destined to be auctioned off for the sake of the initiative, which will encourage Manchester-area children to succeed through sports and education.
Richard Mille has had great success with its partnerships in the world of sports, most notably with tennis pro Rafael Nadal.
