Bulgari has signed actor Josh O’Connor as a brand ambassador.
He is best known in my household for his role as writer Lawrence Durrell in the feelgood Sunday evening series The Durrells (great escapism in 1930s comedy drama set in Corfu and available on Britbox), but his highest profile role is playing Prince Charles in the Netflix mega series The Crown, for which he received a Golden Globe nomination this year.
“Josh represents the best and brightest of young British actors and Bulgari has followed his career with great belief for many years. Josh’s discerning eye for craftsmanship, detail and design is unrivaled and Bulgari is delighted today to bring these values together and introduce him into the Bulgari family as an ambassador for watches,” a Bulgari statement says.
Last weekend’s Golden Globes had to take place as a hybrid live and virtual event, but Mr O’Connor appeared on screen wearing a Bulgari Octo Finissimo S watch in steel with black dial.
