GENEVA, February 18 /PRNewswire/ -- On February 16th, jaeger-lecoultre.com has started an online auction of the prototype "Number 1" of the model Master Compressor Extreme W-Alarm Tides of Time, from its SIHH 2009 collection.
100% of the proceeds will go to a World Heritage project identified by UNESCO.
Symbolising the "Tides of Time" partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre, the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the International Herald Tribune, this timepiece associates two of the Manufacture's emblematic complications: an alarm and the simultaneous display of the time in 24 time zones. Three of the cities on its outer dial ring have been replaced by three natural sites - Scandola in France, Galapagos in Ecudor and Tubbataha in Philippines - inscribed on the World Heritage List benefiting from a dedicated preservation programme supported by Jaeger-LeCoultre.
The Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre is involved in a three-year partnership with the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the International Herald Tribune to help promote, protect and safeguard outstanding marine sites that require specific immediate intervention.
Interested in joining the auction of the prototype Number 1 in steel and titanium of the latest Master Compressor Extreme W-Alarm 'Tides of Time' for World Heritage?
