Indeed!

The only rugby and watch connection I've noticed before is this poster that I see whenever I visit my local watchmaker:

Black Bay Dark seems to line up pretty well marketing wise. I'd never considered All Blacks and all black watches before, but there's some untapped potential here. Omega Dark Side of the Moon would have been pretty sweet. Maybe a Heuer Dark Lord to cover vintage? :lol:

Those unfamiliar with the All Blacks and Rugby Union might be confused about the first image on the Tudor 'site, Aaron Cruden's looking pretty intense :shock: :!: :

Cripes! Another one. I really must get out more.

The explanation of the moko dial seems a bit culturally confused :think: 'Lost in translation' perhaps.

I like the engraving on this watch more, even though it's still a bit confused: Maori theme from an NZ outfit :thumbup: but Magrette sounds French and as far as I can tell Leoncino means Lion cub in Italian :?: A multicultural timepiece.

Beaut engraving all the same:

im pretty sure if i paid the NZ rugby union enough they would be proud to share in my morning clean out! from all the breakfast cereal, vitamin pills & energy/recovery drinks i need to consume to be a top athlete. so long as they arrived before i jumped into my built for kiwi conditions ute, covered in aluminium flakes to make sure i dont smell through the day while being a staunch tradie :lolno:
