 On Sunday, May 19, 2019 Joseph Clapsaddle & Associates hosted its inaugural production of the American Icon Awards at the legendary Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. Design-driven Swiss watchmaker Rado joined them at the event, which honored Hollywood icon Al Pacino, music industry icon Quincy Jones, and sports icon Evander Holyfield with additional recognition to humanitarians Jonathan D. Fischer and Christine Avanti-Fischer and the sports philanthropy award going to NFL veteran, Devon Still.

Pacino received this honor from his long-time friend, Robert DeNiro, who presented him with a Rado HyperChrome Skeleton Automatic Chronograph for the Icon Award. DeNiro has appeared with him in the epic films ‘Heat’, ‘The Godfather, Part II’, ‘Righteous Kill’ as well as the upcoming Netflix release, ‘The Irishman’. Official Chair of the event and director of ‘The Irishman’, Martin Scorsese, also celebrated Pacino and other honorees via a video tribute.

 Naomi Campbell honored Quincy Jones at the Gala. Boxing legend, Evander Holyfield received the award and Rado watch from Laila Ali, daughter of Muhammad Ali, while David Foster presented the Innovative Philanthropy Award to Jonathan D. Fischer and Christine Avanti-Fischer and NFL Veteran Devon Still was honored by George Martin.

All honorees were presented with a signature Rado watch to commemorate the moment. Al Pacino received a HyperChrome Skeleton Automatic Chronograph, a limited-edition watch made in the brand’s signature high-tech ceramic.

 Rado also donated the same model bestowed to Al Pacino for the Awards’ live charity auction, which benefitted St. Jude Children’s Hospital as well as other nonprofit organizations.

The watch’s box was signed by VIP attendees including Al Pacino himself, Evander Holyfield, Devon Still, Jackie Cruz, Oscar de la Hoya, Peter Facinelli, Matteo Bocelli and more, to celebrate the special evening. The gala was additionally highlighted by amazing live musical performances by Robin Thicke, Jackie Cruz (Orange is the New Black), Quincy Jones’ protégé, Sheléa, Pia Toscano, Matteo Bocelli, son of music legend, Andrea Bocelli and a comedic set by Sebastian Maniscalco.

A leading Swiss watch brand known for its innovative design and use of materials, Rado is proud to have been able to support the American Icon Awards and to have honored these incredibly gifted artists, whose work in philanthropy will continue to be admired.
