Up-and coming young watch brand 88 Rue du Rhône is the Official Watch and Timing partner of the year’s British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) and, as such, was heavily involved in the BAFTA awards, which were presented last Sunday. The Geneva-based brand produced 50 limited edition watches that were gifted to all citation readers over the BAFTA weekend.
The 88 RUE DU RHONE Limited Edition BAFTA timepiece features a unique engraving of the EE British Academy of Film and Television Arts logo on the back of the watchcase. The company is also giving away a number of these limited edition watches through social media competitions to lucky members of the public.
The gent’s version has a 42mm rose-gold case with black dial, date display and chronograph functions and comes with a soft brown leather strap, while the ladies’ version has 35mm stainless steel case with 11 diamond hour markers, silver Arabic numeral 8 detail and a strap made from shiny black calf leather with an alligator lining.
