Cole is no stranger to the AIDS awareness movement. Almost 25 years ago, the designer launched a series of ad campaigns to generate awareness and raise funds to find a cure for the disease. He partnered with amfAR in 2011 to raise AIDS awareness among a new generation. Cole also is in his 8th year as Chairman of amfAR.
The Kenneth Cole New York Powered by You watch will retail for $250 and will be available this Spring at Kenneth Cole stores, online and in department stores worldwide.
