Richard Mille Offers One-of-a-Kind Watch at Charity Auction

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

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 Chan’s Dragon’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 5.5 million RMB (equal to 755,000 CHF, €630,000, or $860, 000), and it was the record sale for the evening.

Richard Mille is delighted with the great result. The money raised from the sale of this exceptional watch will enable Jackie Chan to pursue his work with Dragon’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 charity’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 Dragon’s Heart lettering is shown both in English and Chinese. On the back of the watch case the words “Foundation Jackie Chan” are engraved.

RM JC:
−Manual winding tourbillon with hours, minutes, power reserve indicator (circa 70h), torque indicator and function selector.
−Carbon nanofiber baseplate.
−Dimensions: 48.18 mm x 39.70 mm (widest point) x 13.95 mm (thickest area).
