Moritz Grossmann and Art in Time unveil the piece unique Date Pink

A joint initiative for the Princess Grace Foundation, paying tribute to childhood innocence.

Mortitz Grossmann, a German independent timepiece brand, and Art in Time, a Monaco based timepiece retailer, have jointly unveiled the piece unique Date Pink for the Princess Grace Foundation, a nonprofit organisation. Art in Time is a Moritz Grossmann authorized retailer, and has a boutique in Courchevel, France, as well. Princess Grace Foundation (La Fondation Princess Grace) is based in Monaco.

Art in Time has been engaged in such charitable initiatives since 2019. They take advantage of their local network in Monaco to do so, and the piece unique Date Pink with Moritz Grossmann pays “tribute to childhood innocence.”  A portion of the proceeds from its sale will go to the Princess Grace Foundation. Each year, this foundation “provides direct aid for humanitarian initiatives benefitting children and cultural projects targeting students.”  Founded in 1964, the Princess Grace Foundation celebrates 60 years of benefiting children.
