IWC Portofino Monopusher Tribeca Film Festival Watch Up for Auction
If you’re a film buff with a taste for fine watches IWC Schaffhausen has a dream deal for you. The Swiss watchmaker is auctioning off an IWC Portofino Monopusher Tribeca Film Festival white gold timepiece along with a once-in-a-lifetime NYC experience through Christie’s.
This deal would be sweet enough if there was just the IWC watch involved since this white gold beauty is a unique piece with a slate grey dial representing NYC and Bordeaux subdials suggesting the red carpet experience awaiting the winning bidder of the “Money-Can’t Buy-Tribeca-Film-Festival-Experience.” The IWC Portofino Monopusher Tribeca Film Festival chronograph has a Caliber 59360 movement, sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating on both sides, and an IWC crocodile leather strap by Santoni with 18k white gold buckle.
In addition to the glamorous 45mm timepiece, the auction winner and a lucky guest will receive two tickets with VIP access to the “For the Love of Cinema” celebrity-studded dinner hosted on April 16, 2015, by IWC with Tribeca Film Festival co-founders Robert De Niro, Craig Hatkoff and Jane Rosenthal. The pair will dine with celebrities and enjoy a special surprise musical performance.
Included in this prize is a two-night stay for April 16-17 at the luxurious Trump Soho hotel plus round-trip transportation to and from both the airport and the private dinner. There’s no mention of airfare so it looks like the winner will have to foot that bill.
Bidding starts at $30,000 and the current top bid is $38,000. The auction will end on April 10 and the winner has until April 13 to pay for the prize. This sounds like a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the winner and best of all, even after the festival is over this lucky film fan will still have the stunning IWC Portofino Monopusher Tribeca Film Festival Portofino Monopusher watch to remind him/her of the memorable occasion.
The auction is going on now at Christies.com/iwctribeca. Happy bidding and good luck!
