In December 2022, Swiss Institute introduced TimeForArt
the first-ever  benefit watch auction to support contemporary art and artists.

TimeForArt is a curated benefit auction of exceptional timepieces from the world’s greatest watchmakers, with 100% of the proceeds directly enabling today’s most visionary artists, through Swiss Institute’s exhibitions, public programs, education & community engagement workshops – all free of charge.

TimeForArt is a biennial auction, and provides a year-round platform for exchange between horological and visual arts.

TimeForArt's inaugural edition was held as part of the Phillips New York Watch Auction: SEVEN, on December 10th and 11th, 2022.
