As the USA and rest of the world observes the 20-year anniversary of 9/11 this week, William Wood Watches will be at the forefront in paying respect to those who lost their lives and loved ones.
In doing so, the British luxury watch company is proudly partnering with the Tunnel to Towers Foundation to honour the first responders and all who gave up their lives saving others.
William Wood Watches will be auctioning off a one-of-a-kind watch and personalized experience, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation’s Fallen First Responder Home Program.
William Wood was the name of the founder’s late grandfather who served in the British Fire Service for over 25 years.
He won commendations for his acts of bravery and went on to inspire the founder’s ambition to create beautifully unique luxury watches made from upcycled firefighting materials.
Tunnel to Towers was founded to honor the sacrifice of FDNY Firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life to save others on September 11, 2001.
Chairman and CEO of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, Frank Siller, said: “We are excited to work with William Wood Watches on this unique piece of firefighting history that pays tribute to the lives lost on September 11th. This auction will support Tunnel to Towers’ mission to provide mortgage free homes to America’s first responders who give up their lives to keep us safe.”
While Jonny Garrett, CEO and founder of William Wood Watches, added: “When I heard that the Tunnel to Towers Foundation was donating mortgage free homes to firefighters and first responders, I knew this was a remarkable organization that we had to support. We are delighted to be standing alongside this brilliant organization and raising funds in commemoration of such a significant event which shook the world.”
