Save the date because of the 7th edition of ONLY WATCH, the biennial auction of unique timepieces sold for the benefit of research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy will take place on Saturday 11 November 2017 in Geneva. Before that, the Monaco Yacht Show will host, from the 27th to the 30th of September 2017, in the Principality of Monaco.
With more than 25 million euros collected since 2005, ONLY WATCH, under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and at the initiative of Luc Pettavino, President of the Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies, is the premier international watchmaking charity event.
The auction that concludes this altruistic momentum will take place for the second consecutive time in Geneva. Before that, the Monaco Yacht Show will host, from the 27th to the 30th of September 2017, in the Principality of Monaco the first stop of the promotional world tour of the collection, which will travel through Asia, the Gulf, the United States and Europe.
Only Watch brings together watchmaking groups and independent brands that express, through variations of exceptional timepieces, their applied creativity and their openness of heart by offering the fruit of their work. In 2017, special emphasis will be placed on unique experiences and collaborations offered by some of the brands to complement their watch (sports ambassadors, artists, etc.)
The funds collected will entirely be donated to scientific and medical research on neuromuscular diseases in general and on Duchenne muscular dystrophy in particular, thanks also to many loyal partners who graciously bring their know-how and support Only Watch.
For this 7th edition, we welcome the prestigious auction house Christie’s that will accompany the project and contribute its world-renowned expertise in more than 80 specialties, including watches.
