Porsche 911 Sally Special Chronograph
Porsche wanted more than just a 911 special edition one of model for RM Sotheby’s August auction and by itself it would be ‘lonely’ and so a special edition watch was created recently.
So, as you might already know, the one-off Porsche 911 car will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s on Saturday, 20 August 2022 as part of Monterey Car Week in California.
Auction proceeds will be donated to two charities. A portion of the proceeds will benefit young women through a donation to Girls Inc. The second portion will go to USA for UNHCR, an organisation that supports refugees from Ukraine.
This auction will also include other highlights, most notably this unique chronograph by Porsche Design, which was also created in collaboration with Pixar.
Like the car itself, the colored ring is painted in Sallybluemetallic.
The chalk-colored leather strap with Speed Blue stitching underscores the sporty design of the unique timepiece. The strap can be quickly and easily swapped out for a second strap in Speed Blue with chalk-colored stitching, without the need for any tools.
Like the vehicle, the chronograph has a limited edition marking on the back of the case. The one-of-a-kind piece is powered by a COSC-certified Porsche Design WERK 01.100 movement.
The auction will also feature a special indoor car cover from Porsche Tequipment, a wheel rack with an additional wheel set consisting of Carrera Exclusive Design wheels, a book on the development and production of the one-off model and original drawings by designers Shuichi Yamashita and Bob Pauley.
Meanwhile, the proceeds from the auction will go to Girls Inc. which inspires all girls to be strong, smart and bold through direct service and advocacy. Operating from 76 sites across the United States and in Canada, Girls Inc. equips girls with the knowledge and skills to effect positive changes in their lives and become leaders who will change the world.
“We are grateful to Porsche and to Pixar for their commitment to this project, which will directly benefit our work,” said Stephanie J. Hull, Ph.D., Girls Inc. President & CEO. “The character of Sally, and what she represents, is a great role model for young girls and it is fitting that she should be helping a new generation achieve their dreams.”
The United Nations Refugee Agency supports more than 6.2 million refugees who have been forced to flee their homes due to the war in Ukraine. “The majority of those forced to flee Ukraine are women and children, among them unaccompanied children and those separated from their parents,” said Anne-Marie Grey, Executive Director and CEO of USA for UNHCR.
“But there is reason to hope with the critical support of companies like Porsche and Pixar who have generously stepped up to help ensure their safety and protection in months to come.”
