88 Rue du Rhone has unveiled its BAFTA watch, having been named a sponsor of the annual film and television awards, which take place this weekend.
The brand has marked its first year as the official watch and timing partner of the BAFTAs with a limited run of 50 rose gold and steel timepieces, with a gent’s and women’s design.
The watches will be gifted to citation readers during the BAFTA weekend. The watch features a decorated caseback, engraved with ‘EE British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ and the BAFTA logo.
Rue du Rhone is also set to give away a number of the watches to the public through social media competitions.
The gent’s BAFTA timepiece has a 42mm rose gold tone case with black dail, date and chronograph with a brown leather strap and 50m water resistance.
The ladies’ BAFTA watch has a smaller 35mm case with 11 diamonds set as indices, Arabic numerals and the number eight picked out to represent the brand’s name. It is finished with a shiny black alligator style leather strap.
