At the 2019 ONLYWATCH Charity Auction, the brand donated the unique watch of the Grande Second Skeleton One.
‘Father of the United States’ Benjamin Franklin once said, ‘Time is money.’ This time Jaquet Droz once again generously assisted the OnlyWatch charity auction and is committed to raising more funds for this charity. To this end, the brand donated a large seconds hand-cut One exclusive watch to this prestigious charity auction, and will conduct a charity auction on November 9 in Geneva.
OnlyWatch charity auctions have been held for seven sessions, and each session has been generously assisted by Jaquet Droz. This auction is aimed at raising money to study the fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Thousands of infants, adolescents, and adults worldwide suffer from this severe muscular dystrophy due to genetic problems every year. For many years, the OnlyWatch Charity Auction has been a pioneering charity to fight this serious disease, raising over 400 million Swiss francs, of which 99% is used to fund research. This charity event can be held every two years and successfully raised funds, thanks to the generous assistance of many watchmaking brands. Jaquet Droz is also very honored to be one of the well-known fine watchmaking brands and continues to donate unique treasures to the OnlyWatch Charity Auction for charity auctions year after year.
In 2019, Jaquet Droz chose to donate an exclusive exclusive style of the new ceramic large second hand hollowed out One (GrandeSecondeSkelet-OneCeramic) watch. This piece also marks the 100-year history of the brand’s GrandeSeconde watch. A major breakthrough. The track scales (hours, minutes, seconds), the three gold hands and the hand-rolled strap on this exclusive watch have been reinterpreted, replaced by a striking red and black ceramic case In sharp contrast to the hour circle, it is reminiscent of the national emblem and national flag color of the principality of the charity, the Principality of Monaco. Next fall, the OnlyWatch charity auction tour exhibition will be held in more than 10 cities. During this period, watch collectors around the world will have the opportunity to appreciate the unique ceramic grand second hand hollow One (GrandeSecondeSkelet-OneCeramic) gifted to OnlyWatch. The charm of a precious watch.
