Bulgari Chronosprint Endurer All Blacks Christchurch Watch - Highlight of Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Auction

Sep 08, 2011
On Friday, September, 2, the international rugby community conducted an exclusive auction that raised 53,220 Euros for the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal. It took place in Paris, one week ahead of the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. Held at the prestigious Royal Monceau Hotel, the event saw the attendance of the New Zealand Ambassador to France, Rosemary Banks.

The highlight of the auction was the Bulgari Chronosprint Endurer All Blacks "Christchurch" unique watch, manufactured in collaboration with the legendary New Zealand rugby team. The price of the item reached 24,000 Euros. The bidding winner was the Qatar Group GSSG.

Innovative and elegant, the Bulgari watch is engraved with the date of the earthquake that devastated Christchurch in February this year. Moreover, it bears the original All Blacks logo, which history can be traced back to 1905.

The logo is applied to the semi-transparent tinted sapphire crystal. The latter permits the glance into marvelous detailing of the mechanical self-winding calibre DR1306 movement, executed in the Bulgari Haute Horlogerie ateliers in Le Sentier, in the Vallee de Joux.

The mechanism brings to life slightly off-centered hours and minutes as well as a specific chronograph function and a date.

The Bulgari Chronosprint Endurer All Blacks "Christchurch" watch is coupled with a rubber strap with a pin buckle and DLC-treated steel inserts.

The new owner will receive the Bulgari watch in a leather presentation box, manufactured in the shape of a life-sized rugby ball and embossed with the All Blacks logo.
