Labrinth Donates Raymond Weil Watch to Charity Auction


A limited edition Raymond Weil watch belonging to singer-songwriter Labrinth was auctioned at the Grey Goose Vodka Winter Ball, as part of an auction lot that raised £180,000 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

The annual event was set up six years ago to support the charity's fight against HIV and AIDS.
Held at London's Battersea Power Station on 10th November 2012, the 1950s Cote D'Azur themed ball was hosted by David Furnish and Kevin Spacey. The event included a three-course dinner by Helene Darroze, live performances by Labrinth and Emeli Sandé, and a fundraising auction.

Labrinth donated an auction lot including his personal Raymond Weil BRIT Awards watch, dinner at his restaurant Mosaica, and a bespoke music track.

Raymond Weil is the Official Watch and Timing Partner of the BRIT Awards, gifting a limited edition timepiece to all presenters, nominees and performers at the ceremony. Ahead of the 2012 Awards the luxury watch brand hosted a special pre-Awards party in association with Labrinth, and the auctioned watch had been worn by the artist throughout the event.

The lot was sold for a winning bid of £180,000 - the highest price of an auction lot ever sold at the Grey Goose Winter Ball. The night raised a total £1,095,582 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
