London, February 19th, 2009 – Yesterday night, UK’s most glamorous music event – The BRIT Awards 2009 with MasterCard – took place at Earls Court London. In line with the Brand’s commitment to the music world, Swiss luxury watchmaker RAYMOND WEIL proudly announced its status as Official Watch of this glittering event for the second time.
On this occasion, presenters and artists – among them Kylie Minogue, James Corden and Mathew Horne – were honoured with an exclusive don giovanni così grande edition especially designed by RAYMOND WEIL for the BRIT Awards 2009. This unique model, limited to only 10 pieces worldwide, features a pink gold case set with 138 sparkling diamonds. Subtly blending originality and technical know-how, this elegant timepiece features a mechanical complication that is exclusive to Geneva watchmaker RAYMOND WEIL. Its particularity and innovation reside in its mechanical movement that controls the two time zones: the first with its time indication over 12 hours and the second over 24 hours, ensuring easy reading of the time. Fitted with a saddle-stitched genuine alligator full skin black strap, the watch proudly features the BRIT Awards logo on its see-through case-back.
Following on from last year’s hugely successful collaboration between Rihanna and The Klaxons, the reigning Queen of the British urban scene Estelle joined forces with leading indie pop duo The Ting Tings for a performance that ignited The BRIT Awards stage. This collaboration was the final performance to an already spectacular line up that included performances from Girls Aloud, Take That, Coldplay, Duffy, Kings of Leon, multi BRIT Award winners U2 performing their new single ‘Get On Your Boots’ and Outstanding Contribution to Music recipients the Pet Shop Boys. Viewers tuned in to music’s must-see night LIVE on ITV1.
