ANDERSEN Genève Montre à Tact “Tribute to Craftsmanship” “Pièce Unique” Only Watch 2019

ANDERSEN Genève is participating for the third time to ONLYWATCH. In manufacturing and offering for auction an exclusive timepiece, ANDERSEN Genève is supporting an incredibly worthy cause with 100% of the hammer price donated to research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

The timepiece created is the first ever “Montre à Tact”, without a time window on the dial. It discreetly reveals the time with the help of a reading time window between the lugs.

No hands disturb the Artwork that features on the full surface of the timepiece displaying a scene of Geneva at sunset. It is mounted on a 0.4mm two-tone mother of pearl plate with four elements hand engraved by a brilliant artist:

  • Mont Blanc Mountain in red gold
  • Lake side and “Salève” Mountain in 21ct blue gold
  • “Belle Époque” boat in white gold
  • Geneva “Jet d’Eau” in Mammoth horn

Every component of this timepiece has been created and crafted in Geneva with the collaboration of local Artists; the union of experienced case makers, watchmakers, hand engravers, combined with a dial maker and jeweler from Geneva having more than 30 years of know-how in their respective fields.

ONLYWATCH is organised by the Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monaco Association against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy). The Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies was created in 2001 by parents of children suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, who decided to support progress in scientific and medical research.

It is a biennial charity auction of unique timepieces created by the finest brands united for research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Each watchmaker donates a one-off timepiece specifically made for Only Watch.
