Girard-Perregaux and the Rockefellers partner for ‘Changing Watch’ event
On September 25th, Susan and David Rockefeller and Girard-Perregaux will join forces with Nile Rodgers for the “Changing Watch” event supporting We Are Family Foundation. The evening will honor the new generations that will inhabit the earth and that will work to address some of the most critical environmental and social issues in our history.
With the occasion of the event, Girard-Perregaux will be presenting a special edition pf watches designed in collaboration with Susan Rockefeller and named ‘Mission of Mermaids’ (MOM). Using the archetype of the mermaid, the 15-minute film is a poetic ode to the sea, as well as a plea for its protection. In 2013, Susan and David Rockefeller established the Protect What is Precious Initiative to make the world a more loving, peaceful and healthy place by protecting family, art and nature.
“People like Susan and David work as guardian angels, always reminding us of the necessity of protecting what we hold precious”, said Michele Sofisti, CEO of Sowind Group (Girard-Perregaux and JEANRICHARD). ‘Girard-Perregaux’s timepieces remind us of how precious time is, and, their support is a great reassurance to us’, said Susan Rockefeller. “We have very limited time to save our oceans. My hope is that Mission of Mermaids will inspire people to reflect on the importance of preserving our environment.’
