IWC Charity Auction in support of the organisation "SIPAR"in Cambodia

It's exactly ten years since IWC turned a wonderful idea into a tradition. On 1 December 1998 the first auction was held on the manufactory's website. On that occasion, the model Mark 11, a veteran from the company's own collection, changed hands for the benefit of the Red Cross. Every year since then our auction has been an eagerly awaited event.

Between 8 and 14 December 2008, IWC Schaffhausen will be auctioning a watch that will never be available again - the Pilot's Watch UTC Edition Antoine de Saint Exupéry in platinum. This tribute to the French pilot, author and adventurer will be presented together with a copy of the English edition of his novel "Terre des Hommes" ("Wind, Sand and Stars"), hand-signed by the author. The proceeds of the charity auction will go to the SIPAR organization, which works in Cambodia to fight illiteracy by publishing children's books and setting up school libraries.

Starting today, you can get full details on the auction item, minimum bid, auction period and the beneficiary organization in our Member Area. You need to register (free of charge) in order to access this area - click
