Richard Mille & Jackie Chan Partnership – For Those Who Know The Value Of Time
For those who know the value of time and how it is symbolized through quality timepieces, this is a bit of pertinentÂ news to add to your files.
While researching some product releases on Facebook, I came across the news that Jackie Chan and watch maker Richard Mille have teamed up to develop a signature timepiece as a compliment to Jackie Chan’s charity efforts organization Dragonâ€™s Heart Foundation.
For A Good Cause
On September 14th, actor and Richard Mille ambassador Jackie Chan organized a charity auction in Beijing to benefit needy children from rural areas. In support of his friend Jackie Chanâ€™s Dragonâ€™s Heart Foundation, Richard Mille collaborated with the star to design a one-of-a-kind watch, the RM JC Tourbillon, especially for this event. The unique white gold timepiece sold at auction last night for $860 000, and it was the record sale for the evening. The money raised from the sale of this exceptional watch will enable Jackie Chan to pursue his work with Dragonâ€™s Heart Foundation, which helps less fortunate children in remote areas by constructing new schools, 20 of which have already been built since 2004. The RM JC is an exceptional timepiece that combines the extreme technical characteristics of Richard Mille watches with strong symbolic themes. The charityâ€™s logo was chosen as the focus for this creation. Placed at the heart of the movement, the logo represents Jackie Chan holding the hands of two children, a cause close to his heart. Situated on the dial, the Dragonâ€™s Heart lettering is shown both in English and Chinese. On the back of the watch case the words â€œFoundation Jackie Chanâ€ are engraved.
