This auction will celebrate the best of design and innovation and will be held at Sotheby’s New York on 23 November.
Going under the hammer – is a custom Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos 561 clock with red accents created specially for the auction and a Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea watch with a red dial and (RED) logo engraved on the back of the watch. Proceeds from the auction will benefit The Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
