Oscar®-nominated film director Mark Osborne is the latest member of the IWC family to read an excerpt from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince. In 2015 Osborne directed the first-ever animated feature film adaption of the French novella, earning a César award for his moving tribute to the classic tale, which featured his son Riley as the voice of the eponymous hero.
As the world faces a health crisis, the global IWC family stands together for the launch of “Time Well Shared.” Through this initiative, IWC employees, brand ambassadors and partners will share their time, knowledge, experience and passion through digital channels. They aim to inspire people to make the most of their time, and entertain and support them by keeping them connected and engaged. All contributions are accompanied by a button to make voluntary donations, with IWC making the first donation. With the funds raised, IWC will support Save the Children, which aims to strengthen its programmes that protect children and families in countries that are hit by the virus, increase support for national health systems, and raise awareness among parents and caregivers on how to provide psychosocial support to children.
Part of IWC’s “Time Well Shared” initiative, The Little Prince online reading series aims to lift spirits during the current global health crisis. Following on from Indian actress Sonam Kapoor, Lebanese-British TV presenter Raya Abirached, Tunisian actress Hend Sabry and goalkeeper Yann Sommer, Osborne reads Chapters 15 and 16 in English.
