     A one of a kind watch to be unveiled at Waterford’s 2nd International Festival of time next weekend will be auctioned for charity. After visiting the inaugural festival last year Swiss watchmaker Paul Gerber – recognised in The Guinness Book of Records as having created the world’s most complicated wristwatch – decided to create a unique timepiece alongside his apprentice Anny Weber. The Waterford Watch  will be unveiled at the Festival, which runs from September 22-24, and later auctioned for charity by Phillips in association with Bacs and Russo of Geneva.  Proceeds are to be divided in three ways with one third each for the Waterford Museum of Time (pictured here), apprentice Anny Weber and the Join Our Boys Trust, a charity dedicated to raising awareness of muscular dystrophy. Masters of watchmaking from Switzerland, France, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, the UK and Ireland will attend the festival.
