Bristol Bears has partnered with luxury timepiece retailer, Watches of Bath.

The Club’s Official Watch Retailer is supporting both the Men’s and Women’s Teams and will be clearly visible on the back of the playing shorts across all competitions.

The multi-year agreement means that Watches of Bath further grow their presence in professional rugby.

Chief Commercial Officer of Bristol Sport, Sarah Farrar, said: “We are so pleased to welcome Watches of Bath. The combination of the quality of their products alongside their excellent service and passion for their industry helps identify them as one of the most prominent independent retailers in the South-West. Their high standards and business ambition align with our professional sporting values.

“Their support of both our Men’s and Women’s teams is a huge coup for us and we’re looking forward to them joining us ahead of this season’s respective Premiership and Premiership Women’s Rugby campaigns.’’ 

Owner of Watches of Bath, James Mercer, said: ‘We are proud to affiliate ourselves with both Bristol Bears and Bristol Bears Women’s.

“We feel this is an excellent time to invest in the game. Over a billion people are expected to tune into the Rugby World Cup in France and with female participation levels at an all-time high we can’t wait to support Pat Lam’s and Dave Ward’s teams respectively.”
