Henry Dunant: when the Swiss Red Cross and Mauron Musy join forces
1 min read
Mauron Musy and the Swiss Red Cross have joined for a collaboration and development of a limited edition of seven watches. Each timepiece is unique and stamped with one of the seven fundamental principles of humanitarian organisation; humanity, neutrality, impartiality, independence, voluntary service, universality and unity.
The face of the Henry Dunant timepiece reflects the alliance by featuring the names of the Swiss Red Cross and Mauron Musy. It bears the creation date of the Swiss Red Cross – 1866, and the name of Henry Dunant – its founder. The latter is engraved on an hour-marker and hand-varnished, combining with three other red lines to represent the movement’s emblematic cross symbol. The case-back is stamped with one of the seven fundamental principles, making each piece iconic and distinctive.
Proceeds from the sale of six watches in this limited edition will be used to support the “Chili” programme. The programme aims to raise awareness among children from an early age about constructive conflict management. It teaches them how to resolve their differences in a non-violent manner.
The seventh watch, inscribed with “humanity”, will be donated to the Red Cross Ball to support “Mothers and Children” projects. In addition, this donation will support various actions related to the fight against the pandemic.
Fight against COVID-19
Joining the global fight against the pandemic, Mauron Musy has provided the support to the Swiss Red Cross. From March 25th to April 30th, Mauron Musy donated 10% of its sales to the humanitarian organisation in order to support the actions undertaken.
