Announcing The Geneva Watch Days Charity Auction

Taking place on August 30th at 8:30pm CEST, Phillips, in association with Bacs & Russo, will be holding an auction with the proceeds benefitting the École d’Horlogerie de Genève, a Swiss watchmaking school founded in 1824. The funds from the auction will go towards scholarships that allow for aspiring watchmakers to pursue their passion in watchmaking and be able to turn that passion into a career.

There are a total of 15 lots scheduled for the auction. A few of the auction items include:

  1. Two dinner seats at the presidential table during the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève ceremony. This year’s GPHG awards ceremony will take place on November 9th at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva.
  2. “The opportunity for the winning bidder and their guest to meet Erling Haaland, the Premier League phenom and Breitling ambassador, during an event hosted by the watch brand in Europe, in 2024 (exact date and location to be confirmed later). All travel and accommodations will be included in your winning bid. Oh, and you’ll also receive a personally signed jersey from Haaland.”
  3. Becoming a watch designer at Czapek for a day: “The winning bidder will become a watch designer for a day, provided with the opportunity to customize a dial from any existing Czapek watch, with the full support of their team. Once completed, you’ll be able to keep any drawings or renderings produced during the visit. A professional photographer will also be on hand to capture the experience. If you’re so inclined, Czapek will also be willing to actually create the one-of-a-kind watch, at the specific model’s retail price, with the only surcharge coming from the effective costs of the unique dial.”

The larger event that this auction is a part of, Geneva Watch Days, takes place from August 29th to September 2nd. To find out more about the auction specifically, please click here.
