Drawing the future: two unique timepieces created by children, benefitting children

To celebrate our ongoing partnership with the remarkable organisation ‘Room to Read’, we’ve created two unique and enchanting timepieces. But they’re not just artistic gems – these watches will play an important role in our continued support for literacy projects around the world, championing education as a force for good.

At H. Moser & Cie., we see education as the key to change – a lever that’s strong enough to uplift and empower the world.  Our partnership with Room to Read has been an invaluable way to bring this, our shared vision, to life. Room to Read is an extraordinary global organisation that has benefitted millions of children around the world– by encouraging reading, providing books, and teaching special skills for young girls. We thought it was about time to share not only our support for the work they do, but to create a real ‘picture’ of the children whose lives have been changed for the better.

We invited two classes of young students (receiving support from the organisation in India and Sri Lanka) to let their imaginations run wild! The students all created beautiful artwork, and two drawings were selected for their exquisite use of colour and design. The artists, Arif and Kasun, put the same great effort into their artwork as they do in daily life, both in and out of school, and are extremely proud to be a part of this project. We then commissioned an artist to reproduce the drawings by hand on the dials of two Endeavour Centre Seconds Automatic models. Using tiny brushes and great heart, he reproduced the children’s works as faithfully as possible, capturing their bold use of colour and inventive designs. 

 

 

 

The two unique pieces, two Endeavour Centre Seconds Automatic models, will be on show at the gala dinners organised by Room to Read in London on October 3rd, and in Zurich on November 9th. Guests will be able to bid for the piece featuring Kasun’s (multi-coloured nature scene) design in London, and Arif’s (swimming elephant) design in Zurich.  Each model features an 18k white-gold case engraved with “Room to Read Unique Piece”.  Last but not least, we are delighted to announce that alongside our commitment, Room to Read will dedicate a children’s book in Sri Lanka and a library in India to the respective winners of these singular timepieces.

Opposites attract in our new Venturer Concept Vantablack® Diamonds.
