Well known British export Darren Tulett is the most French among British football specialists.
About Darren Tulett
Born in 1965, near Brighton, England, Darren’s fields of expertise are journalism and sports.
He studied at Manchester Polytechnic to become a political journalist. He got his first job in journalism a few years later as sports reporter for Bloomberg News in London.
His love for France led him to settle down in Paris. In addition to several newspaper articles and books on football and players, he covered the 1988, 2002, 2004 football World Cups, the cycling race Tour de France and the French Open tennis tournament for Bloomberg.
In 2001, the French TV channel Canal+ launched a new sports show with foreign journalists. Darren was hired and rapidly became the specialist on British Premier League football. His sophisticated style and eccentricity soon made him popular with a broader public.
If nothing else he has managed the rare feat of making the British seem almost palatable to the French, if only in small doses and as long as it’s about sport.
In 2011, he became the presenter of THE football shows on French TV, Match of Ze Day (you couldn’t make it up!) and Samedi Sport.
Darren, who plays up his British credentials in France by wearing traditional and retro British menswear such as pork pie hats and stripy blazers, was naturally captivated by GRAHAM’s retro Anglo style watches. Sharing the same daring personality, he instantly found a real connection with the Anglo-Swiss brand.
The GRAHAM Chronofighter Fortress
If you like to go retro, then the antiqued GRAHAM Chronofighter Fortress is definitely the watch for you. With a distinct leaning towards Panerai, the watch features an imposing 43mm wide case and a Graham Calibre G1742 automatic chronograph column wheel movement. The watch will retail for around $8,260.
Darren immediately adopted the GRAHAM attitude proudly sporting his Chronofighter Fortress while presenting his TV shows. The brand is happy to welcome him as an official brand ambassador.
