Baobao Sponsored And Supported The Beautiful China Auction For The Second Consecutive Year

Recently, the annual Teach For China charity auction was held in Hong Kong. Blancpain is proud to donate auction watches for the second consecutive year to show its support. In the on-site auction, this specially customized Blancpain full-calendar moonphase red gold watch sold the second highest price of the evening event.

   The annual Beautiful China Burgundy Wine Party has entered its fifth year. The party has set up an on-site charity auction to raise funds and support the transfer of talents to areas where education resources are scarce to engage in education and teaching.
   More than 400 leaders from the financial sector, charities and the media community attended the evening party, and an eighth-grade student from rural Yunnan Province spoke in front of them about the huge impact of beautiful China on their lives. She recalled that before she arrived, she ‘don’t know what a university is’, and now ‘university’ has become her ‘ultimate goal’.
   Blancpain’s donated full-calendar moon phase red gold watch is made using the ultimate Swiss craftsmanship, which has attracted fierce auctions, and soon it has been doubled to the pre-sale estimate. The successful bidder can ask Blancpain’s Le Brassus sculptor to engrav the ideal pattern on the solid gold oscillating weight, thereby ensuring that this watch is unique.

   Swiss International Air Lines will provide the successful bidder with a first-class ticket for a two-way direct flight from Hong Kong to Zurich. Upon arrival in Switzerland, they will arrange a stay at the Grand Palais Lausanne and provide dinner for two at the Michelin-starred restaurant in Anne-Sophie Pic. During his stay in Switzerland, Blancpain will invite the successful bidders to explore the brand Le Brassus Master Workshop and meet the master of carving to meet their custom-made rotor requirements.
   Andrea Pasinetti, founder of Beautiful China, expressed her gratitude, saying, ‘We are honored to have a community of supporters and support this cause with such enthusiasm.’
