H. Moser & Cie. and Room to Read strengthen their collaboration on the occasion of two gala dinners a London e Zurich, where two unique pieces specially created by the manufacture of Schaffhausen will be auctioned in favor of Room to Read and its mission to transform the lives of millions of children through education, creating a world free from illiteracy and gender inequality.
To create these two pieces, H. Moser & Cie. asked for help from children helped by the Literacy Program of Room to Read in India e Sri Lanka, these children created drawings which were then recreated by hand by an artist on these unique pieces.
Room to Read is a global organization founded on the belief that the Change of the World begins with Educated Children® and has helped over 16,8 million children in 16 countries and 37.000 communities. H. Moser & Cie. e Room to Read they share a common vision: education as the key to change and as a lever that, by joining forces, can lift the world.
By fostering a greater sense of responsibility and changing behaviors, it allows us to envision a better future for our planet and for generations to come.
To strengthen its partnership with Room to Read, H. Moser & Cie. created two very special unique pieces: with the help of Room to Read, the Manufacture asked two classes of schoolchildren who receive education support from Room to Read, in India and Sri Lanka, to let their imagination run wild and create a drawing.
In the end, the designs of Arif e Kasun, both for the use of color and for the style of their works. Arif and Kasun put the same commitment into their artistic creation that they put into their daily life, inside and outside the school. Arif lives in Mumbai, India, and has to walk several kilometers to get to school. His father sells fruit for a living, Arif would like to be a policeman. Kasun lives in Sri Lanka and goes to school on a moped with his father who is a farmer. This little boy dreams of becoming a doctor.
The two children were thrilled and proud that their designs had been chosen to adorn the dials of the two unique pieces that will help help the most deserving children through education.
H. Moser & Cie. Commissioned an artist to reproduce the designs on the dials of his creations by hand. Using fine brushes, this artist has put his heart and all his expertise into this work, trying to reproduce the children's work as closely as possible, mirroring both their bold use of color and their designs.
He worked two days on the dial of Kasun and three on the one drawn by Wise. The two models will be auctioned in favor of the organization. A wonderful way to underline the commitment of H. Moser & Cie. towards sustainable development.
The two unique pieces, two models Endeavor Center Seconds Automatic, will be on display at gala dinners organized by Room to Read, in London on 3 October and in Zurich on 9 November. Guests of these two events will have the opportunity to bid for the model with the design of Kasun, in London, and Arif, in Zurich.
Parallel to the commitment of H. Moser & Cie., Room to Read will dedicate a children's book of Sri Lanka and a library in India to the respective winners of these two unique watches. The Manufacture hopes that the proceeds from the auctions of these watches will help further Room to Read and disadvantaged children anywhere in the world. The entire Moser team is committed to helping children and is very proud to support Room to Read and its activities.
