The Spirit of Rolex and Cinema
Rolex is proud to be the sponsor for this year’s Oscars® as well as founding supporter of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Being part of the legendary films, Rolex have long fronted the shows for decades, and the luxury watch brand will continue to support the Academy as it represents the pinnacle of cinematic art, preserving the history of cinema and in its recognition of exceptional achievement.

The Rolex timepieces were often chosen by the filmmakers (and in some cases, even belonged to the actors themselves) due to the importance of capturing moments in time with their works serving as an artistic interpretation of the world.
Rolex supports those who achieve the highest level in their field, from sports to cinema and the arts. These Rolex Testimonees have made it to the pinnacle of success and are masters of their craft, whose films stand the test of time. In film, each with their own style and personality have contributed to creating some of the most unforgettable cinematic experiences.
“The Academy and the four exceptional Rolex Testimonees in cinema – Kathryn Bigelow, James Cameron, Alejandro G. Iñárritu and Martin Scorsese – exemplify a determination to reach unimaginable goals.” – Arnaud Boetsch, Rolex Director of Communication & Image.
The Rolex Testimonees in cinema share with Rolex “the understanding of the importance of time and making a mark on the world through excellence in storytelling,” added Boetsch.
