Set number 1 will be auctioned for charity by Bonhams. Starting today, enthusiasts can place their bids online until October 22nd. The proceeds from the auction will go to the Two Bit Circus Foundation. This Foundation wants to create learning experiences for children in all economic situations to inspire entrepreneurship, encourage young inventors and instill environmental stewardship. It does so, for example, with its Makerspaces that inspire integrative learning in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM). These spaces are equipped with tools and mostly made from re-purposed materials. Other activities of the foundation include workshops and events, field trips or summer camps for children.
To unveil the set, IWC’s CEO, Christoph Grainger-Herr, connected virtually with Chris Down, Chief Design Officer at Mattel. They discussed the shared values that unite both brands and the motivation for their collaboration. In addition, as a special invitee to the webcast, Scottish racing driver and former Formula One™ legend David Coulthard shared his feedback and real-life experience at the helm of the 300SL. Coulthard took first place for the IWC Racing Team at the Tony Gaze Trophy at the 77th Goodwood Members’ Meeting in 2019.
