Well, that timepiece which was from the Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec TimeWriter Collection sold for a winning bid of $90,000. The money has been designated to be donated to two charities – The Smile Train and the Emirates Airline Foundation.
The watch itself is a thing of beauty. It is a a two-tone dial design in 18 carat red gold created to celebrate the 190th anniversary of the chronograph. The winner has chose to remain anonymous. A total of 87 bids were received for the prize.
