Audemars Piguet Partners with the Clinton Foundation Equation of Time Watch
Audemars Piguet continues its long tradition of philanthropy through its Audemars Piguet Foundation, by contributing a significant portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Clinton Foundation Equation of Time timepiece will benefit The Clinton Foundation which looks to help the world move beyond the current state of globalization to a more integrated global community of shared benefits, responsibilities, and values.
The Clinton Foundation Equation of Time encompasses a truly amazing group of timepieces that remains true to Audemars Piguet's tradition of excellence and creative daring-a presentation of workmanship that stands out especially in the firm's highly complex watch mechanisms. These timepieces combine several functions including the equation of time, sunrise and sunset times, and a perpetual calendar with astronomical moon. Each of the Clinton Foundation Equation of Time timepieces features The White House as a location on the graduated ring of the watch and a seal of President Clinton engraved on the back of the watch.
The platinum edition will be presented along with an architectural scale model of the White House.
President Clinton was the 42nd President of the United States, thus there are only 42 of the Clinton Foundation Equation of Time watches in each of three luxurious materials: platinum, rose gold, and white gold.
"My Foundation is working around the world to have a measurable and sustainable impact on some of the most pressing issues we face today, such as HIV/AIDS, global climate change, poverty and the health epidemic of childhood obesity in the United States," said President Clinton. "We cannot do this work alone, and I thank Audemars Piguet for their support of my Foundation."
The Clinton Foundation is currently working around the world on its various initiatives:
HIV/AIDS Initiative, — care and treatment to people living with HIV/AIDS;
Clinton Global Initiative,— members recently pledged 245 new commitments to address the issues of education, energy and climate change, health, and poverty;
Clinton Climate Initiative—currently working on an energy efficient building retrofit program in some of the world's largest cities.
"We believe that The Clinton Foundation and Audemars Piguet share common values of innovation and excellence," says Audemars Piguet's CEO Georges-Henri Meylan. "Audemars Piguet is very proud of helping The Clinton Foundation to achieve the ambitious goals it has set for the coming years. We share the same philosophy, and our new partnership will allow us to launch a unique timepiece and donate $3 million to The Clinton Foundation. The Audemars Piguet Foundation has the goal of contributing to the conservation of forests around the world within the framework of environmental protection and awareness-raising among youth. This is a perfect synergy."
