Perennis: Envisioning Beauty with The Fred Hollows Foundation

The gift of sight is a precious one, revealing the rich tapestry of life and the beauty that our world has to offer. It allows us to appreciate the delicate dance of everyday magic, from the unfolding hues of dawn to the intricate artistry embedded in a finely crafted watch. Yet, millions globally are denied this gift due to preventable blindness and visual impairments.

At Perennis, we cherish the power of sight and recognize its instrumental role in appreciating beauty, particularly within the realm of horology. We'd like to dedicate this message to the charitable organization that inspires us in our commitment to vision and sight, The Fred Hollows Foundation.

The Prism of Sight and Beauty

The marvel of a watch lies in its fusion of function and art, an elegant testament to human ingenuity. From the rhythmic oscillation of the balance wheel to the intricate dance of minuscule gears, there's a world of visual splendor to behold in each timepiece. However, the enjoyment and appreciation of these wonders rely significantly on the gift of clear sight.

The Fred Hollows Foundation: Pioneers of Vision

It's this understanding that led us to admire and support the work of The Fred Hollows Foundation, a global non-profit committed to treating and preventing blindness and visual impairments.

Named after the late Fred Hollows, an ophthalmologist whose mission in life was to restore sight, the foundation continues his invaluable work. Through their efforts in over 25 countries, they provide essential eye care services to those who would otherwise have no access.

While Perennis and The Fred Hollows Foundation are not formally partnered, their mission deeply resonates with us, and we proudly support their noble cause.

Sight as a Universal Right

Aligned with the principles of The Fred Hollows Foundation, Perennis believes that the ability to witness life's beauty should be a universal gift, not a privilege. Whether it's the detailed craftsmanship of a timeless watch, the vibrant colors of a painting, or a simple, heartfelt smile from a loved one, everyone should have the right to enjoy these visual delights.

As part of our commitment, Perennis regularly contributes to The Fred Hollows Foundation, aiding their endeavor in restoring sight, preventing blindness, and promoting eye health in underserved communities around the world.
