Baume & Mercier and Greg Grunberg, star of Heroes, Alias and Felicity, have joined forces to raise money for the Epilepsy Foundation. From now until July 4, a selection of Baume & Mercier watches will be available at 50 percent off their regular prices. The prestigious Swiss watchmaker will also donate 50 percent of the proceeds to Talk About It! to benefit the Epilepsy Foundation.
Epilepsy affects 3 million people in the United States and 40 million to 50 million people worldwide. This year, another 200,000 people in our country will be diagnosed with epilepsy. To date, there is no known cure.
Grunberg’s own elder son suffers from epilepsy, which is why he joined forces to create TalkAboutIt.org. This project unites Hollywood celebrities and top health care experts to end the misperceptions and misunderstanding about epilepsy and seizure disorders. “I am so grateful to Baume & Mercier for supporting TalkAboutIt.org and the Epilepsy Foundation with this incredible fund-raising opportunity. It’s time to learn about epilepsy, it’s time to end the stigma and fear about seizures and now it’s time to step up and buy a beautiful watch at an amazing price to help us find a cure for epilepsy,” Grunberg said.
Baume & Mercier represents 180 years of watchmaking heritage embodied in a Swiss watch brand of contemporary luxury and relaxed elegance. Since 1830, Baume & Mercier has been producing technically precise and reliable watches for everyday living: the Diamant and iléa collections for the elegant, modern woman; the sporty Riviera for active lifestyles; the tasteful Hampton that is perfect for all occasions; and the timeless Classima Executives enhanced with its new 2010 additions.
