'Time For Change' to support Chrysalis Watch

Jun '08
Swiss watch manufacturer Ernst Benz introduces a limited-edition collection "Time For Change," in support of Chrysalis. Three watches were designed exclusively by Eric Dane, Mary J. Blige, and Russell Simmons.

Only 24 numbered watches per designer are being made, celebrating 24 years of Chrysalis. One watch from each designer is being auctioned off on EBAY through JUNE 12, 2008, with 100% benefiting Chrysalis. Remaining watches will be sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue this fall, with 50% of the proceeds benefiting Chrysalis

ERIC DANE:
Eric set out to design the ultimate "guys'" watch. Inspired by aviation and performance, Eric wanted his design to be reminiscent of a pilot's watch and to look like a stealth bomber. The watch will be made of titanium with graphite on black detailing.

MARY J. BLIGE:
Mary's watch is joint collaboration with her husband, Kendu. They chose the color scheme of gold and luxurious materials to be featured on the 40mm ChronoScope watch including a 2-carat double row of diamonds set in an 18 Karat Rose Gold Bezel and Caramel Alligator Strap.

RUSSELL SIMMONS:
Russell chose to incorporate the Hindu seven chakras into his design. The watch features the symbol for the 6th chakra, referred to as the "third eye", which represents time as well as sanskrit numbers and the word "Atman" (spirit of man) centered on the dial. Seven different color nylon straps, one for each chakra, ties it all together.

Ernst Benz Managing Director and Designer, Leonid Khankin, commented after unveiling the collection at the 7th Annual Butterfly Ball, "I knew that I wanted to support Chrysalis after learning of the organization, but after attending this year's Butterfly Ball, I am even more dedicated to supporting this project.

This limited edition watch collection is just one step towards raising funds and awareness for an organization doing incredible work to change lives and give people back their dignity."

Brett Ratner will be designing a 4th watch in this collection, launching this fall at Saks Fifth Avenue.
