Kate Winslet launches signature watch for auction

PARIS, June 12, 2017

Swiss watchmaker Longines, with the participation of its Ambassador of Elegance Kate Winslet, recently presented the Flagship Heritage by Kate Winslet watch at Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris, France.

Three models of this exclusive gold watch, which was produced in a very limited edition and named after the brand ambassador, will be auctioned online for the benefit of The Golden Hat Foundation, a charity co-founded by the British actress.

The Flagship Heritage by Kate Winslet features the same dial as The Flagship Heritage – 60th Anniversary 1957-2017.

The Flagship Heritage by Kate Winslet watch is the result of a common project for the benefit of the Golden Hat Foundation, a charity co-founded by Kate Winslet, which is dedicated to changing the way people on the autism spectrum are perceived.

During a visit to the brand’s headquarters in Switzerland last year, the actress chose the dial, the case and strap of the watch. Five gold pieces have been produced and named after the brand ambassador.

The models numbered 2/5, 3/5 and 4/5 will be auctioned for the Foundation. The auction will take place online on Longines website from June 10 to 30.

The first remaining timepiece will be presented to Kate Winslet and the second will be kept in the Longines museum, located at the company’s headquarters, in Saint-Imier, Switzerland.

“I was given the permission to choose a watch, which was designed specifically for the Golden Hat Foundation,” said Winslet.

“The style of the model really appealed to me and I instantly fell in love with it. All the profits of the selling of the model are going directly to the Foundation. This project with Longines is helping raise awareness about a particular cause dear to my heart. Thanks to Longines’ involvement and the generosity of the donators, the Foundation will keep on working towards achieving its goals.” – TradeArabia News Service
