Under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II and at the initiative of Luc Pettavino, President of Association Monégasque Contre les Myopathies, ONLY WATCH reveals the names of the 54 brands participating in the 9th edition of the biennial charity auction, whose aim is to raise funds for research against Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Only Watch is a biennial charity auction of one-off luxury timepieces created by the finest watchmakers for research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The event is organized by Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monaco Association against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy) under the patronage, with the support, and in presence of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.
Since its first edition in 2005, Only Watch has aggregated over 70 million Euros which enabled to finance numerous scientific and medical research programmes.
In 2021, the Only Watch charity auction will take place on 6th November in Geneva. The sale itself is preceded by a travelling exhibition of all the pieces, starting at the Monaco Yacht Show (September 22th-25th) and ending in Geneva (November 6th). It will allow collectors, amateurs and enthusiasts, as well as media representatives, to discover the creations. In between, Asia, the Middle East and the American continent will host their own stages, the dates of which will be announced in the coming days.
On Saturday November 6th, 2021, brands, partners and donors will be invited to the Four Seasons Hôtel des Bergues in Geneva. The auction, organised with the support of Christie’s, will start at 2pm (in the room, online, over the phone and by purchase order) and will end around 4pm. The funds raised will be donated to the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy, perpetuating the humanist and altruistic spirit that has governed its destiny since 2005.
