More celebrities can call themselves designers now, with Mary J Blige, Eric Dane and Russell Simmons set to design limited edition Ernst Benz watches for a special, Time for Change collection. The proceeds from the sale will benefit Chrysalis, a nonprofit association that helps men and women transition from poverty. A total of 24 watches will be created per designer in honor of Chrysalis' 24th anniversary with each watch priced from $4,00 to $22,000. The watches will be unveiled this Saturday at the 7th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in Los Angeles with some set to be auctioned off on eBay.
