Here is very good news for the Herbelin family. Indeed, with the approach of the Rugby World Cup which will be held in France at the start of the next school year, it is this French watchmaker, based in Charquemont, who will produce the two collections of watches for the clothing brand Eden Park. , which is inspired by the world of rugby.
Two collections therefore: a “French Flair Sport” line which is aimed more at rugby players and a “French Flair Club” line which concerns rugby fans. Naturally, all of these watches will feature the famous Eden Park logo, the pink bow tie.
Within these two collections, the dials will feature Roman numerals in the upper part and Arabic numerals in the lower part. They will be delivered on wristbands sewn with blue, white and red threads. For prices, it will take between 400 and 600 euros.
As a reminder, the Eden Park brand was created in 1987 by Franck Mesnel and Eric Blanc, former professional rugby players. Its name is of course a reference to the legendary Eden Park stadium in Auckland, New Zealand. The brand is currently distributed in some forty countries in more than 500 points of sale.
For the record, the famous “pink bow tie” logo was born during a drunken dinner after a French championship final. As for its color, it obviously refers to the color of the boxer shorts that were worn by the players during the matches and to the Pink Panther, the mascot of Franck Mesnel’s former team, the Racing Club de Paris.
