NEW YORK (September 16, 2013) – Every October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when high-profile brands create commemorative pink products to heighten awareness and raise funds in the fight against breast cancer. The Bernheim Brothers, grandsons of a reputable watchmaker Raymond Weil and co-founders of 88 RUE DU RHONE are proud to announce a partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Donations will be made from sales of the “Pink Lady” Chronograph watch in 88 RUE DU RHONE’s Double 8 Origin Collection to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, which helps women receive free mammograms, education, support, and early detection services. The watch was specifically designed with this charity in mind; the Bernheim family is dedicated to the cause of helping other men and women across the U.S. in the fight against breast cancer. “We believe in this cause. The Pink Lady watch is a stylish way to give back” says Pierre Bernheim, founder and CEO of 88 RUE DU RHONE, "It’s a way for 88 RUE DU RHONE to support women and men who are fighting this disease, celebrate survivors and help find a cure."
The Pink Lady watch’s black alligator leather strap and dial is accessorized with six white diamonds and fuchsia details, aligning itself perfectly with the “pink” campaigns in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Stylish, bold, and modern, the watch retails for $745. Shoppers can purchase a high-quality, luxurious Swiss-watch and know that their purchase is helping to save lives.
