Wearable art timepiece dedicated by Eva Longoria and presented for charity auction

MANAMA, Bahrain - eTradeWire -- In a proud moment for Bahrain and the GCC, Bahraini-owned luxury watch brand Qannati Objet d'Art marked its presence at the Cannes Film Festival by donating a one-of-a-kind timepiece for charity in collaboration with Hollywood actress Eva Longoria.

The unique work of art was personally engraved and dedicated by Eva Longoria and auctioned to benefit the Global Gift Foundation. This event aligns with Qannati's dedication to the art of timekeeping and its mission to support charitable causes that enhance the lives of children, women, and families worldwide.

The watch, adorned with a blue crocodile bracelet, artistically represents the beginning of humanity through the story of Adam and Eve. It features a coiling serpent around an apple, symbolizing mankind's deepest desires. The watch is crafted from titanium and embellished with a 3.09-carat polygonal red ruby representing the forbidden fruit, along with 2.44 carats of black sapphires. The serpent is meticulously handcrafted in 21K yellow gold against a mother-of-pearl backdrop. The back of the buckle features an engraved bitten apple, recalling the story of the Garden of Eden.
