Amazing to learn about Swiss watchmaking company Longines and their charitable work with Kate Winslet for the Golden Hat Foundation charity.
I love Kate Winslet for her incredible performances on film and in television, as well as for her humanitarianism and support of causes that hold meaning for her. I was immediately interested, then, when Swiss watchmaking company Longines reached out to me about getting the word out about their support of the non-profit organization co-founded by Kate in 2010, the Golden Hat Foundation. I knew you would be as pleased as I am to learn more about how Longines has partnered with Kate to raise funds for a great cause.
This month, Longines was delighted to welcome Kate Winslet for her first visit to the Swiss watchbrand’s headquarters in Saint-Imier, Switzerland. Kate is Longines’ Ambassador of Elegance, and has been since 2010, when she co-founded the Golden Hat Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to changing public perception of people on the autism spectrum. In Saint-Imier, the Oscar-winning actress was given a tour of the Longines Museum. During her time with the brand, Ms. Winslet selected a Longines watch to be re-issued, once again this year, for the benefit of the Golden Hat Foundation.
These portraits of Kate’s visit Switzerland are so chic and graceful, aren’t they? I especially like the one which shows her during her Longines Museum tour and during her careful timepiece selection process. Make sure to view the video footage as well. I think Longines’ ‘Ambassador of Elegance’ is a perfect title for the English actress and Grammy-award winning actress, don’t you?
This year marks Kate Winslet’s sixth as Longines’ Ambassador of Elegance. Longines has a long tradition of supporting worthy causes and is proud to be associated with Kate and her altruistic pursuits. The brand’s deeply held values are fully in line with those demonstrated by the actress through the Golden Hat Foundation. Longines has been so taken with Ms. Winslet and her dedication to changing public perception of people on the autism spectrum that they spontaneously decided to support this non-profit organization, which seeks to highlight the immense potential and honor the intellectual capabilities of individuals with autism. I hope you’ve enjoyed learning about Swiss watchmaking company Longines and their charitable work with Kate Winslet for the Golden Hat Foundation as much as I have. I hope to continue raising awareness of more worthy causes in the future.
