Nile Rodgers, the mul­ti­ple Grammy Award-win­ning mu­si­cian, pro­ducer, and co-founder of the band CHIC has made a spe­cial visit to Gi­rard-Per­re­gaux man­u­fac­tur­ing ate­liers in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzer­land.

The leg­en­dery hit-maker, known to be one of the hard­est work­ing mu­si­cians in the in­dus­try, vis­ited the ate­liers to cel­e­brate the part­ner­ship be­tween Gi­rard-Per­re­gaux and the We Are Fam­ily Foun­da­tion (WAFF).

WAFF is a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion founded by Rodgers that cre­ates pro­grams to in­spire and ed­u­cate young peo­ple about re­spect, un­der­stand­ing and the ap­pre­ci­a­tion of cul­tural di­ver­sity. In ad­di­tion to show­cas­ing the watch­mak­ing process, the visit fea­tured a jam ses­sion with young watch­mak­ers who cul­ti­vate a pas­sion for mu­sic.

Michele Sofisti, CEO of Gi­rard-Per­re­gaux, said: “We were hon­ored to have Nile visit our ate­liers and wit­ness the cre­ative process that is at the core of watch­mak­ing. There is a great con­nec­tion be­tween Gi­rard-Per­re­gaux and the We Are Fam­ily Foun­da­tion. We both nur­ture young tal­ents who will be the keep­ers of tra­di­tion in the fu­ture.”

Rodgers was pre­sented with a limited edi­tion black zir­co­nium ver­sion of the Shadow Hawk watch, bear­ing WAFF's logo on the dial and a ded­i­cated en­grav­ing on the back of the case.
