Actress and Director Carmen Chaplin attend amfAR’s annual Cinema Against AIDS benefit in Cannes aimed to raise funds and AIDS awareness. Chaplin wore a 1960s high jewelry secret watch from Jaegar-LeCoultre made in platinum and white gold and adorned with around 119 diamonds.
Earlier in the year Chaplin directed a short movie entitled A Time for Everything, which pays tribute to time, heritage and features the 1953 Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox watch of her grand-father, Charlie Chaplin.
“I am intrigued by the fact that they have been ticking steadily for more than a century,” said Chaplin in reference to Jaeger-LeCoultre vintage watches. “My grandfather’s watch particularly moves me, because he gave it to my father, Michael Chaplin, his son, when he turned 14. Then my dad gave it to my mom as proof of their love on their wedding day. It was a real good-luck charm because they have been in love now for 45 years.”
Jaeger-LeCoultre is located at The Dubai Mall. Tel. +971 43398769.
