A one- of- a- kind Patek Philippe watch made more than 2 mil­lion Swiss francs, also in sup­port of the Chil­dren Ac­tion Foun­da­tion. A ti­ta­nium ver­sion of the Cala­trava Pi­lot Travel Time ref 5524 was put up for sale in Oc­to­ber, by Christie’s in Geneva. The model, first launched in 2015, was de­signed, as the name sug­gests, for trav­ellers and avi­a­tors, and fea­tures a sec­ond time zone linked to the date dis­play. The new piece, made es­pe­cially for the auc­tion, has a black dial with a hand- ap­plied satin fin­ish, and the words “Chil­dren Ac­tion 2018” en­graved on the case­back. Chil­dren Ac­tion pro­vides hands- on as­sis­tance to young­sters across the world, ad­dress­ing is­sues such as sui­cide, as well as pro­vid­ing sup­port for those with dis­eases such as cancer.
