Swiss luxury watch brand Breguet presents a unique haute horlogerie creation specially made for Only Watch 2011 Charity auction. A patented music box-type mechanism enables this one-of-a-kind white gold Réveil Musical watch to play an equally unique tune, “Castle in the sky”, either on demand or at a pre-set time. And finally, the entirely original dial bearing a child’s hand completes a full rotation to touch the adult hand appearing on the flange, thereby vividly symbolising inter-generational solidarity and support for research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
