The effortlessly stylish and talented actor Regé-Jean Page has joined Swiss watchmaker Longines as its newest ambassador of elegance. Admired by viewers across the world as the Duke of Hastings in Netflix’s Regency-period drama Bridgerton, he’s bagged an impressive number of award nominations for his role, including an Emmy and Screen Actors’ Guild Award.

Matthias Breschan, Longines CEO, is clearly a fan, too: ‘An actor with Regé-Jean’s talent, poise and presence only comes along a few times in a generation,’ he says. ‘He has already accomplished so much but it is clear that this is only the beginning of what will be a magnificent career.’

For his part, Regé-Jean Page is enthusiastic about the partnership: ‘It’s simple, really, Longines makes such beautiful watches.’ Having previously appeared in Emmy-nominated series, Roots in 2016 and Shonda Rhimes’ 2018 legal drama series, For the People, Page was most recently seen in Amazon Studios’ jazz-era romance, Sylvie’s Love. Upcoming projects include starring in the blockbuster Dungeons and Dragons, and he’s recently wrapped filming on Joe and Anthony Russo’s The Gray Man. Next up, he will star in and executive produce a new version of The Saint.

Time Magazine included Page in its prestigious ‘100 Next’ list, its annual audit of men and women who are defining the next generation of leaders. It’s an accolade that sits well on him. When asked if he considers himself to be elegant, he replies, ‘I like to hold myself to a standard of elegance, which means carrying myself with a certain consciousness,’ he adds. ‘Part of that is a generosity and living in a way that is helpful to other people. In doing that, you can bring more beauty to the world.’
