World Anti-Counterfeiting DayFondation de la Haute Horlogerie started a campaign against counterfeiting
The Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) started a campaign to show the true face of counterfeiting and raise public awareness. The Foundation's latest campaign tackles counterfeiting from a new angle and asks: "Do you have a choice? Don't be a partner in crime." It appeared in the British Financial Times newspaper today on June 8th, media partner of the FHH. The campaign features a picture of a watchmaker at the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre.
As part of its action to inform the public on the risks and dangers of counterfeiting, the “Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie” (FHH) organised a competition for first-year students at Lausanne University of Art and Design (ECAL) and the public at large. As part of their studies at the university's school of visual communication, students were invited to make a 30-second infomercial. The winner of ECAL 2nd Prize and Prize for “Best Production” Ovidé Lo Castro was rewarded with Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso Grande Taille for the film “Don't be an accomplice”.
Don't play with appearances; Crime thanks you for your donation; You can't fake expertise… These were just some of the messages that hit home during the evening as the films, which ranged from cartoons to fictions and montages, were shown.
