On February 29th the charitable auction 24 Hours for ‘Help Them’ will be hosted by the magazine ’24Hours’ in the Auditorium Renzo Piano, Milan.
In cooperation with Antiquorum and the The Embassy of the Order of Malta in Serbia the auction will raise funds for the charitable association headed by Fabio Cerchia ‘Help them Onlus’, which supports underprivileged children all over the world. Proceeds will be donated for the construction of schools in Serbia, under the supervision of The Embassy of the Order of Malta in Belgrade.
Keen to support such a worthy cause, Richard Mille has decided to contribute with a truly unique piece. Inspired by the charity’s institutional colours, the 18k white gold RM 016 ‘Help them Onlus’ features a white flange ring with red graduations, hands with red markers and the charity’s logo – a red heart carrying the cross of the Order of Malta – on the dial at 9 o’ clock. The watch comes on a red rubber strap and shows the two engravings ‘unique piece’ and ‘Help them Onlus’ on the caseback.
Richard Mille has always been a keen supporter of charitable causes. Last year he donated one of its most emblematic creations – the RM 027 Rafael Nadal tourbillon – to Only Watch, the auction of exceptional watches organised by Antiquorum Auctioneers to support research of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. He also designed the RM JC Tourbillon piece unique, in aid of Jackie Chan’s Dragon’s Heart Foundation in favour of aiding less favourable children in remote areas through the construction of new schools.
