One-Of-A-Kind Bullitt Watch Raffle Benefits Parkinson’s Research

To help fund the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, Drive Toward A Cure and BRM Chronographes teamed up with automotive fine artist Nicolas Hunziker to create a one of a kind timepiece that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the movie Bullitt. This one-off watch is being auctioned off to help seek a cure for a dreadful disease.

In addition to sharing Bullitt with the world, I want to continue what I believe my Dad would want – to bring awareness of Parkinson’s Disease and drive toward a cure. — Sean Kiernan

“With the support of Ford Motor Company, Warner Bros. Studios and Chad McQueen – Drive Toward a Cure will be raffling off the Bullitt 50 Chronograph through the end of January, with all proceeds to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation in memory of Robert E. Kiernan Jr., the owner of the famed Bullitt Mustang since 1974 and who was increasingly challenged by Parkinson’s Disease,” says the charity.

Not only does the style of this unique timepiece celebrate the movie’s anniversary, but it also contains an actual piece of the original Bullitt Mustang. The trace of movie-car DNA is a 1-gram paint fragment taken from the car and embedded in the watch.

“Sadly, my father passed away on May 19, 2014. To honor him I revealed Bullitt to the world earlier this year, along with Ford, for the 50th anniversary of the movie,” original Bullitt Mustang owner Sean Kiernan said. “In addition to sharing Bullitt with the world, I want to continue what I believe my Dad would want – to bring awareness of Parkinson’s Disease and drive toward a cure. Even though my Father dealt with it every day and didn’t let it get to him, he wouldn’t wish the ordeal upon anyone else, especially family, which meant the most to him.”
