Rugby League Superstar Dan Carter Transforms Into A Tag Heuer Watchmaker

Rugby Union superstar Dan Carter demonstrated his watchmaking skills during his visit to TAG Heuer in Sydney.
   In preparation for the Rugby World Cup 2015, Dan accompanied by General Manager Philip Richards and the watchmaking team, Dan visited TAG Heuer’s Sydney headquarters.
   Carter enjoys a good reputation as the best receiving avant-garde in the rugby world. Under the guidance of the brand’s professional watchmaker, he successfully adjusted TAG Heuer’s homemade 1887 chronograph.
   Carter also performed well in another event that tested the highest scorer in rugby history, receiving warm applause from the TAG Heuer watchmaking team.
   Carter said: ‘After understanding the complexity of the internal movement and the master craftsmanship of the watchmaker, I can now appreciate my watch better.’
   Philip Richards, general manager of TAG Heuer, also praised Carter’s performance as a rookie watchmaker. Richards said: ‘Dan is restless in front of the watchmaking table. He has strong hands, which is a necessary condition for making mechanical watches. Although a group of experts are standing around, he is under pressure and can’t relax.
   After taking a watchmaking course, in return Carter taught TAG Heuer watchmakers how to play a volleyball under pressure. ‘I think it’s a bigger challenge for Dan to teach our watchmakers how to play football!’ Richards said.
   In September, Carter will travel to the United Kingdom to participate in the Rugby World Cup, and TAG Heuer wishes him all the best and success.
