GIVING TIME AUCTIONS

Crown and Caliber

COVID-19 has altered communities on an unprecedented scale in a very short amount of time. As we continue to hear the stories of those who are impacted, we have all found ourselves looking for ways to help both in our hometown of Atlanta, and beyond.

That’s why we are launching the "Giving Time Auctions." Our goal is to help find new homes for some great watches while donating 100% of the sale to charitable organizations of the donor’s choice that are making direct impacts to those affected by COVID-19.

With the Giving Time Auction, you helped raise $25,000 and 100% of that money will go to the Giving Kitchen in Atlanta. They provide emergency assistance to food service workers through financial support and a network of community resources. They are crucial to the restaurant industry in this time of need. The Giving Kitchen recently surpassed $3.4M in financial assistance since their inception in 2012.

Thank you so much to Alton Brown for donating his OMEGA Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon and IWC Portuguese IW3714-01 and participating in the Giving Time Auction. Did you miss out? Don’t worry - be on the lookout for more auctions in the next few weeks. Contact Us if you have a watch you want to donate or to get involved.

How You Can Get Involved

Contact Us if You Have a Watch You Want to Donate or to Get Involved

How It Works

With the purchase of each watch below, 100% of the sale goes to the charitable organization associated with that watch. The auction operates as a Sealed Bid Auction and watches will go to the highest bidder once the reserve is met. The winner will receive the watch, appropriate paperwork, and any other donated items.

All watches have been authenticated and performance-tested by Crown & Caliber. They all also carry a 1-year Crown & Caliber warranty.

Note that any money donated above the market value of the watch is tax deductible. The winner will receive necessary tax paperwork.
