If your pockets are deep enough, on May 13 2018, the one-of-a-kind 1815 “Homage to Walter Lange” in stainless steel with black enamel dial will be auctioned in Geneva for the benefit of the children’s charity Children Action Foundation. Before the auction, the watch will be presented at six locations on a worldwide preview tour.

The Geneva-based auction house Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo will auction the one-of-a-kind piece at Geneva’s La Reserve hotel on May 13 2018 between 6 and 9 p.m. as part of its annual spring auction. The watch was created to honor company founder Walter Lange, who passed away a year ago. The auctioneer will be renowned watch expert Aurel Bacs.


All proceeds will be donated to the Children Action Foundation, a charity committed to the physical and mental well-being of children and young people in need all over the world. “Every child has the right to a childhood” is the motto of the foundation, which was founded in 1994 by Swiss businessman Bernard Sabrier. The auction will support one of the foundation’s numerous aid projects.
