    Lightbulb Girard Perregaux "Virtus White" handcrafted for ANF

    “Virtus White” is an utterly exclusive piece handcrafted by Girard-Perregaux for ANF. The only one ever manufactured of its kind, this extraordinary watch was created to strengthen ANF’s efforts of providing hope and relief to children and families such as those affected by Hurricane Felix. Through the Foundation’s “Bright Future Reconstruction Fund” and relief operations, ANF seeks to rebuild lives and create new sources of opportunity. All suggested contributions of $100 made to the Foundation will merit participation in this historic drawing for Girard-Perregaux’s “Virtus White.”

    The winner will be announced at ANF’s Annual Gala on the night of December 1st, 2007.

    Virtus was born from the collaboration of two distinguished organizations, Girard-Perregaux and American Nicaraguan Foundation. The name itself finds its roots in Latin expressing virtue, character, valor, simplicity, and strength in the face of adversity. Reflecting these characteristics in its work, ANF confronts the day-to-day obstacles of working to eradicate extreme poverty in Nicaragua, never faltering, and always providing dynamic solutions to dynamic problems.

    Few names in the rarefied world of Swiss “Haute Horlogerie” are as evocative and historical as GIRARD-PERREGAUX. The activities of this “Maison” trace as far back as 1791, giving it more than two centuries of heritage and uninterrupted operations. GIRARD-PERREGAUX is one of the last, few, true Swiss watch “Manufactures” (from the Latin, “Hand Made”), taking a holistic approach to watch-making and building an authentic product with its own genuine identity, rather than an anonymous assembly of components.
