Schumacher's watch will go under the hammer in Geneva

Schumacher's watch will go under the hammer in Geneva
The family of the German racer Michael Schumacher announced the sale of several watches of the athlete to collect for further treatment. 

Eight wristwatches will go under the hammer on May 13 in Geneva. Two of them are particularly valuable — they were commissioned by Schumacher's close family friend and former Ferrari boss, Jean Todt. 
One of them is the unique FP Journe Vagabondage 1 model, given to Schumacher for Christmas in 2004 to celebrate his seventh world championship. This masterpiece of watchmaking is valued at $1.7 million. 

The second, a Christmas present from Todt, is the 2003 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak accessory, reaching $425,000. This watch also bears witness to the history and relationship between two prominent figures in the world of motorsports. 
These watches have become unique symbols of friendship and recognition in the sports world. Selling them at auction is not only a fundraising opportunity, but also a way to share a piece of the great racer's legacy with the world.
