David M Robinson last week played host to England netball team at the recently reopened DMR Manchester ahead of the forthcoming Netball World Cup in Liverpool.
The team were hosted in in ‘The Lounge’ on Friday afternoon, with each of the team’s twelve players presented with a TAG Heuer ‘Aquaracer’ timepiece, along with a personalised DMR jewellery case.
Inspired by the Roses’ team slogan, each case was individually engraved with the phrase ‘If we are in it, then we are in it to win it’.
Each piece was individually shaped to the players wrists following a masterclass with DMR’s Master Watchmakers, who instructed each of the players on the way in which to set and care for their timepiece.
The visit follows a number of other sporting commitments for the brand, this year, reaffirming DMR’s commitment to supporting grass roots sports and the involvement of young men and women in these.
John Robinson, managing director said: “We understand that in sport, timing really is everything. It was this knowledge that inspired our gifts for you all. Having attended so many games recently with my family, I have seen the way that my own children have been inspired by your skill and dedication, which makes today so special.”
This year’s Netball World Cup is hosted in Liverpool, the city in which the brand – which turns 50 this year -was founded.
