Zenith The Distinguished Gentleman's ride Edition 2017

Zenith supports the distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2017 edition and its more than 70,000 gentlefolk that gather around the world with their motorbikes

On Sunday September 24th 2017, in 600 cities, 70'000 gentlefolk will meet up aboard their motorbikes to support research on prostate cancer and men's mental health on behalf of the Movember Foundation.

They all have a common interest, their vintage bikes - some café racers, bobbers, scramblers and other exceptional customised models that will be taking part in chic and festive parades thrumming along roads and cobblestones.

Their goal is simple, raise funds for the Movember Foundation. The aim being to pass the USD 5 million mark this year (having already raised more than USD 8M since it was created by the Australian Mark Hawwa).

Among the celebrities who will be taking part in the 2017 edition, American actor Eric C.Olsen (from the NCIS LA series), Australian actor Jai Courtney, as well as fashion blogger Mariano Di Vaio (DGR Milan) have already confirmed they will be participating with their motorbike.

Zenith supports this event for the second year running To mark this gathering and in tribute to the generous donors, the Swiss watch Manufacture will produce six very special numbered Pilot Ton-Up watches, each bearing the inscription DGR 2017, celebrating timeless design and ageless mechanics for a good cause. Five are intended as gifts to the main donors, while a special “Number 0” model will be auctioned on behalf of the Movember Foundation by The Rake magazine and its Founder and President Wei Koh at an exceptional gala evening in Milan.
