Perrelet, founded in 1777, one of the longest established of Swiss brands, has created a one-of-a-kind version of the iconic Turbine watch and donated it for auction on behalf of Peace and Sport, l’Organisation de la Paix par le Sport. The entire proceeds will serve to fund grassroots projects undertaken by Peace and Sport.
The ceremony was graced by the presence of Joël Bouzou, President the founder of Peace and Sport, as well as Laura Flessel, Champion of Peace, while the brand was represented by the Director of Perrelet France, Joëlle Esculier.
The Peace and Love Turbine is equipped with an automatic Double Rotor movement and the 12 signature rotor blades. These spin freely above the dial. The Turbine model has been enjoying ever increasing success since its launch. Entirely black-clad, the Peace and Sport logo on the sapphire crystal is fitted into the case back.
Former footballer Christian Karembeu is involved in a number of charities. For Peace and Sport, l’Organisation de la Paix par le Sport, he is one of the Champions of Peace – a circle of 66 top-level international athletes either still competing or not – who give of their time to promote the practice of sport as a means of education and a factor of social stability around the world.
Peace and Sport was created in 2007 by Modern Pentathlon Olympic Medallist and World Champion Joël Bouzou. It works to help build sustainable peace around the world. To do this, it promotes the practice of organised sport as a means of educating younger generations and bringing communities together.
The charity Peace and Sport is an authentic worldwide initiative dedicated to serving the cause of peace and which intervenes in zones that have become vulnerable due to extreme poverty, the aftermath of conflicts or the absence of social cohesion.
A neutral and apolitical organisation based in the Principality of Monaco, Peace and Sport is a global initiative under the patronage of His Most Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.
