Cowes Week Ltd, organiser of the world's best-known sailing regatta and highlight of the British Sporting Summer, is delighted to announce another addition to their family of supporting sponsors as TNG joins  Cowes Week as the Official Timing Partner for the 2017 and 2018 editions of the famous event.

Inspired by a passion for water sports and sailing in particular, TNG Swiss Watches has developed and produced an outstanding, high-quality range of watches in collaboration with their own Swiss watch makers. The collection sets a new benchmark for nautical time pieces and will be the centrepiece of a stunning retail unit situated on Cowes Parade during the event. The range, comprising 15 ‘Classic’ and ‘Sport’ models, will also feature a new official “Cowes Week” watch that is being introduced exclusively for the regatta.

Kate Johnson, Commercial & Marketing Director at CWL commented,

With over 34 classes to start and finish every day, and a reputation for a gold-standard results service, accurate timekeeping is at the very heart of Cowes Week. We are thrilled that TNG Swiss Watches are joining us and we can’t wait to see the new Cowes Week watch.”

Frans Dingerdis, Founder of TNG Swiss Watches added,

Sailing is in our DNA and in our name; TNG is short for Tack & Gybe, the two manoeuvres applied when altering course. We’re excited to be showcasing our product with both spectators and competitors who are looking for a watch specifically developed for top-class racing sailors.
