Honouring the very best of British television, the BAFTA TV Awards will welcome a glittering host of stars to the red carpet on Sunday 8th May.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts was originally formed in April 1947 when a group of the most eminent names in the British film production industry gathered in a room at the Hyde Park Hotel. Born with a fundamental aim “to recognise those who had contributed outstanding creative work towards the advancement of British film”, the iconic BAFTA award has now become an internationally recognised symbol of excellence in the TV and film industry.
In addition to its Awards ceremonies, BAFTA supports, develops and promotes the art forms of the moving image through workshops, masterclasses, scholarships, lecturers and mentoring schemes throughout the year.
The Official Watch & Timing Partner of the BAFTA TV Awards since 2013, Swiss watch brand 88 Rue Du Rhone are once again proud to share the spotlight with this prestigious British event.
Introducing a new take on Swiss Made luxury, 88 Rue Du Rhone was founded by the grandsons of the iconic Swiss watchmaker Raymond Weil and offer up centuries of watchmaking experience.
Taking their name from the famously luxurious Rue Du Rhône street in Geneva, the number 8 has also been carefully chosen by the brand for its symbolic representation of good fortune, ambition and power. Beautifully balancing Swiss excellence and tradition with innovation, 88 Rue Du Rhone watches are expertly crafted with the finest materials and contemporary design.
