This association will see the RV8TORS team wearing TORGOEN Swiss watches and branding, while promoting the product range with competitions and other marketing activity as it fulfils its airshow commitments.
The RV8TORS are one of the UK’s most exciting display teams and the past year alone has seen the duo entertaining an audience approaching 3 million spectators at airshows and public events across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
Pilots Alister Kay and Andy Hill are hugely experienced and command great respect, while the RV8TORS’ schedule for next season already taking shape. With a busy calendar of confirmed dates coming together, it looks likely that 2013 could see them appearing before more people than ever before.
The team flies the Vans RV8 aircraft in an exciting and memorable display which combines close formation aerobatics, at speeds of up to 230mph, with large manoeuvres that fill the sky and leave impressive trails from a powerful smoke system.
TORGOEN Swiss, meanwhile, was created in 1998 by a group of watch manufacturers who shared a passion for aviation – a group that set out on a mission to create a line of professional pilot’s watches.
As the brand’s tag-line states – ‘NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE’ Aviation influences many design features found on TORGOEN Swiss watches, from the hands, numerals and index on the dial, to the provision of dual or even triple time-zone watches, right through to watches that feature E6B Flight Computers.
TORGOEN Swiss remains committed to the highest possible quality standards, at all stages of design and production, and the watches are tested under various extreme conditions, including temperature variation, dust, humidity, impact and vibration.
Each TORGOEN Swiss watch passes strict quality control procedures, to ensure accuracy, water resistance and endurance, in fact TORGOEN Swiss are so confident in their quality, that all TORGOEN Swiss watches carry a 3-year international warranty.
Indeed, it is that commitment to accuracy, precision and reliability that makes this partnership such a perfect one, as the RV8TORS reputation is also founded on those same values, with the team aiming to arrive within 15 seconds of its scheduled start at every show it attends!
The RV8TORS, said: “We are delighted to have joined forces with TORGOEN Swiss as we look to take the RV8TORS on the next level. This is a brand with an aviation heritage and the range of watches available are quite stunning, but equally, very practical and affordable. We are very much looking forward to working with TORGOEN Swiss in the months ahead and are sure this will be an excellent partnership for both brands.”
Peter Carmichael, Brand Development Director for TORGOEN Swiss (UK) commented: “Working with the RV8TORS is an excellent move for TORGOEN Swiss and sits very well alongside our support for the Royal Air Force’s Eurofighter Typhoon Display Team. The RV8TORS is an exciting and dynamic team and we share the same values of precision and professionalism, all the while putting the TORGOEN Swiss name in front of a huge aviation audience. I am sure it will be a lot of fun working with Alister and Andy and that we will develop a successful relationship.”
