The World Cup, which takes place in England, is expected to break all previous records in terms of attendance and viewing. Tissot has timed a number of rugby events in the past, and also created watches with strong parallels with the sport, like the Tissot T-Touch Expert solar.

World Rugby Chief Executive Officer Brett Gosper said: “We are delighted that Tissot has joined the global Rugby World Cup 2015 commercial family. The appointment of another brand sector leader further underscores the tremendous appeal of England 2015 in the global marketplace."

François Thiébaud, President of Tissot said: “We are very proud to be part of Rugby World Cup 2015. The sport of Rugby in itself demonstrates many of our company values, such as teamwork and individual performance at the same time, respect, discipline and a love for sport. Furthermore, this Tournament in particular is the perfect platform to showcase our expertise in a thrilling international environment.”
