Jaeger-LeCoultre will donate the entire proceeds to aid UNESCO World Heritage conservation
For the third year in a row, Jaeger-LeCoultre put up an exclusive timepiece for the online Auction to raise funds for Tides of Time: the Prototype N° 1 of the Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea, LeCoultre Spécial Amérique 1959 commemorative edition, in tribute to the legend of diver’s watches.
The winning bid was £16,208 (approx. $26,752). This collector will now have the pleasure of being the proud owner of this limited-series watch, belonging to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s technical heritage, as the first diving watch ever to be equipped with an alarm and self-winding Calibre in a new size that reflects current trends.
100% of the proceeds from the online Auction will be donated to the Colombia’s Malpelo Fauna and Flora Sanctuary which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2006.
