A much less inspired charity watch auction

On 29 February in Milan, Antiquorum will auction several watches to benefit the charity “Help them Onlus”. The proceeds will be used to build schools in Serbia and the whole project is endorsed by the Embassy of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta in Belgrade.
Unlike Only Watch 2011 which had several unique and outstanding watches, the catalogue for this auction is lacklustre and in some cases embarrassing.
Cartier for instance contributed a steel, quartz Tank Solo, one of the lowest priced watches in its collection. And IWC’s watch is the discontinued Ingenieur with ceramic bezel (shown left). But I suppose it’s for a good cause anyway.
