‘Football is a universal language, spoken on the fields and in the stands, unifying players and fans’ – QNET CEO Malou T Caluza
QNET and Manchester City Football Club have once again teamed up to bring the world a third Swiss watch collection. The tenth timepiece in the QNETCity collection is a testament to the two brands’ long-standing professional relationship.
As a proud sponsor of the Premier League Club, QNET has previously worked with them on direct selling projects. The pair formerly launched two other limited-edition watch collections back in 2016 and 2018, both under the Cimier brand.
The Latest QNET and Man City Collaboration
Sophisticated, bold, and contemporary, the third limited edition Swiss watch is certain to score high with fans. Designed with the club’s unmistakeable obsidian blue emblem adorned on the dial, the timepiece is a homage to the team.
The words ‘Official Licensed Product Manchester City F.C.’ are also engraved on the case back. Manchester City Football Club was established back in 1894. As such, the Automatic Swiss Movement watches within the collection is limited to that number.
“Football is a universal language, spoken on the fields and in the stands, unifying players and fans with a common passion for the game,” said QNET CEO Malou T Caluza. “The excitement and sense of pride that City fans feel is the same excitement and passion that QNET customers have for our business.”
“This new collection of watches designed by elite European artisans and produced by master craftsmen in Switzerland at one of the oldest watchmaking ateliers is a tribute to the love of the game and the partnership between QNET and Manchester City.”
The CIMIER QNETCity Automatic Watch
Showcasing a 46-mm black PVD-plated Stainless Steel body with an octagonal bezel in Rose Gold or Black, the CIMIER QNETCity Automatic Watch is a sight to behold.
The limited-edition timepiece sports the club’s emblem and the signature sky blue on the black rubber strap and dial. It includes the date window at the three o’clock mark.
Boasting a scratch-proof sapphire crystal glass on the front along with up to 100-metre water resistance, this piece will stand the test of time. The watch also features the Swiss Automatic SELLITA SW200 movement; a contemporary take on tradition.
The CIMIER QNETCity Quartz Watch
Of course, the Automatic timepiece is not the only option. As part of the new collection, QNET and Man City have released the CIMIER QNETCity Quartz Watch.
With a 42-mm Stainless Steel body or 44-mm Gold coloured PVD-plated body, it’s a bold choice. This watch also features the football club’s emblem and the sky blue colour, stitched onto the black rubber strap as well as on the dial.
Aside from that, there’s the date window at 12 o’clock, the scratch-proof sapphire crystal glass on the front and up to 100-metre water resistance to boot. This edition of the timepiece has the high-calibre Swiss movement, a classic style fans will love.
Sporty, Elegant, and Sustainable
“The collection features a fusion of sporty and elegance, inspired by the game of football and its inherent geometry. The octagonal bezel blends well with the dial’s strong and dynamic character,” said JR Mayer, Director of Sales and Marketing for Cimier.
“We felt that the subtle integration of the Manchester City Football Club’s signature blue on the dial and in the stitches of the rubber strap gives it a bold and unique design.”
Saving the planet is a top priority. QNET is committed to sustainability and reducing its carbon footprint, while Manchester City is focussed on raising awareness about climate change. With these goals in mind, the packaging of the latest collection uses environmentally-friendly materials.
QNET and Man City: The Winning Partnership
It has been six years since QNET and Manchester City began their landmark partnership in direct selling. However, the two brands’ collaborations don’t end there. In 2018, QNET was honoured by becoming the first sleeve partner of the Manchester City Women’s Football Club for the Women’s Super League 1. A year later, the football club and QNET both announced that this partnership would be continuing for a further five years.
“Manchester City’s journey to becoming one of the best football clubs in the English Premier League has been one of commitment, focus and teamwork—traits that we endorse and value at QNET. Through this partnership, we aim to link the excitement of football and the passion for the game to the thrill of direct selling and the drive of our distributors,” said Caluza.
“We believe this unisex watch collection is a perfect match for the fan in love with the game, on and off the field. The new collection provides another strategic platform for QNET to further elevate our brand and achieve greater reach to our Independent Representatives (IRs) and consumers worldwide.”
