Breitling’s Heritage ’57 made a splash a few weeks ago and now the company is offering a new rainbow version whose proceeds will go to health organizations who are fighting the global pandemic.
The company will donate to multiple organizations around the world including health groups in the UK and Spain. In the US “Breitling will make a donation to Direct Relief, a humanitarian aid organization that aims to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies.”
In April this year, Breitling introduced a watch that attracted enormous attention. The Superocean Heritage ?57?Limited Edition was launched during the brand?s first-ever Summit Webcast which, because of the pandemic and lockdowns, was streamed globally. The Summit audience saw its rainbow-inspired design elements?as symbols of hope and optimism, and the overwhelmingly positive feedback led Breitling to launch a second?edition, this time with a blue dial, limited to 1000 pieces. Part of the proceeds from the watch are being donated?to charities supporting the frontline healthcare workers in some of the most affected countries. Breitling is?also donating an additional CHF 1000 to these charities for each of the first 100 Superocean Heritage ?57 Limited?Edition II watches sold via? www.breitling.com. In total, Breitling will donate CHF 500,000.
The limited edition pieces features a leather or steel bracelet and will sell for $5,000 online. The company will ship the watches soon. There aren’t many complications on this guy – just a three hand design without date – but some of the cost goes to a good cause.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
