Du Maurier watches has secured a starring role in the BBC’s latest big budget thriller, The Night Manager.

The Du Maurier family is no stranger to a tautly wound thriller and so the Maxim Black II and Daphne Signature watches that are set to appear on BBC One should feel right at home in this contemporary adaptation of John Le Carre’s ‘The Night Manager’.

The thriller, which stars Tom Hiddlestone,  Hugh Laurie, Olivia Coleman, Tom Hollander and Elizabeth Debicki, starts on BBC One this Sunday evening.


Brand founder Ned du Maurier Browning, Daphne du Maurier’s grandson, would not reveal how the watches became part of the shoot other than to say he was “in the right place at the right time” and that the models were a “perfect fit” for the production.
