Time-To-Find, a Swiss watches marketplace, has achieved a major milestone in its growth by securing a unique investment deal with UKTV, a broadcaster owned by BBC Studios. Through its investment fund, UKTV Ventures, the broadcaster will receive an equity stake in Time-To-Find in exchange for a year’s worth of advertising on its prominent network of channels. This partnership will enable Time-To-Find to reach a diverse range of audiences and gain widespread exposure among consumers.

Founded by executives from the Rotary Watches management team, Time-To-Find launched its online service in 2019. Acting as a middleman, the platform connects consumers with authorized retailers who have the desired watch in stock. The recent agreement with UKTV is expected to expose Time-To-Find to over 30 million viewers each month through a 30-second advertisement.

Securing investment is a key priority for Time-To-Find as it aims to expand its operations. In addition to the UKTV deal, the company has successfully closed a strategic investment funding round from its existing shareholders. While the exact amount of investment remains undisclosed, this funding will support the company’s growth. Furthermore, Time-To-Find has launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs, giving investors the opportunity to be part of its exciting journey.

Time-To-Find CEO, Tony Quinn, expressed his enthusiasm for these recent developments, highlighting the company’s dedication to creating a unique offering and future-proofing traditional retailers. As a reverse marketplace, Time-To-Find’s disruptive business model exclusively connects consumers with authorized brand agency retailers who have the desired watch in stock. Quinn is excited about UKTV joining them on their journey.

Sheena Amin, Director of UKTV Ventures, also expressed her excitement for the partnership, emphasizing her passion for working with start-ups. She believes in Time-To-Find’s ambitious plans to grow and scale their business and looks forward to raising awareness of their global marketplace platform through the brand-building power of TV.

This investment and advertising deal with UKTV marks a significant milestone for Time-To-Find. It not only brings in the financial resources needed for expansion but also provides access to a wide audience through UKTV’s popular channels. As Time-To-Find continues to disrupt the traditional retail industry, this collaboration is expected to boost its presence and solidify its position as a prominent player in the watch marketplace.
