Dubai: Celebrating English Premier League 2020-21 Champions, QNET the official direct selling partner of Manchester City Football Club, invited its distributors and partners to witness their crowing in a memorious last season game viewing ceremony on Sunday May 23rd in Dubai.

This was the opportunity for the E-commerce based direct selling company QNET, to launch the third collection, and tenth timepiece, in the QNETCity Collection of Swiss Watches, result of joined forces with Manchester City Football Club.

QNET, a sponsor of the Premier League Club since 2014, has previously launched two limited edition watch collections under the historic Swiss brand Cimier in 2016 and 2018. The launch of the tenth timepiece is testament to QNET’s long-standing relationship with the Manchester City Football Club.

Bold and modern, the statement pieces inthe third instalment ofthe CIMIER-QNETCity collection of premium Swisswatches are designed with the Club’s iconic obsidian blue emblem on the dialand have the words “Official Licensed Product Manchester City FC” engraved on the case back.

The Automatic Swiss Movement watches in the collection are limited to 1894 pieces as a homage to the year the Manchester City Football Club was established and are available in Black and Rose Gold. The Quartz variant timepieces are available in Stainless Steel and Gold.

Commenting on the design aspects of the collection, JR Mayer, Director of Sales and Marketing for SwissWatchmaker Cimier said, “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. We added fine detailing in the integrated crown and personalised buckle featuring a deployment system that secures the watch. 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.”

In line with QNET’s commitment to sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint as well as Manchester City’s commitment to creating awareness about climate change, the packaging for the Cimier-QNETCity Watch Collection is made using environmentally-friendly materials.

From her side, Malou T.

She added, “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.”

A very successful experience which was repeated in 2019 by selecting other children from the region, especially Egypt.
