Only Watch 2017: a selection of one-off timepieces on sale for charity

Only Watch is a biennial charity auction of one-off luxury timepieces created by the finest watch manufacturers in order to help finance research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a degenerative neuromuscular disease affecting 1 in 3,500 boys, therefore 250,000 children, adolescents, and young adults around the world.



All participating brands offer their watches, partners offer their services, logistical or organisational supports. Thanks to their support, the costs for organising Only Watch represents less than 2% of the auction result.


Since the first edition in 2005, Only Watch has aggregated over 25 million Euros that enabled to finance numerous scientific and medical research programs.

The 7th edition will be held on 11 November 2017 in Geneva. The event is organised by Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monaco Association against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy) and is supported by Prince Albert II of Monaco.

Each watchmaker donates a one-off timepiece specifically made for Only Watch or offer a one-off version of an iconic/bestselling model of the brand’s collection, with prices ranging from tens of thousands to several millions of Euros.

Below, some of the timepieces that will be auctioned.


Recently presented at Baselworld 2017, the unique piece of the Tribute to Fifty Fathoms MIL-SPEC created by Blancpain for Only Watch is characterised by indexes and hands in yellow Super-LumiNova, yellow date display, and luminescent yellow markings on the black unidirectional bezel.


In addition, the NAC-coated solid gold winding rotor of the movement - visible through the sapphire rustle case back - bears the inscription “Only Watch” together with the Blancpain logo.

Estimate: Swiss Francs 10,000 - 17,000


Present at Only Watch since the first edition of the charity auction, Breguet will donate a Classique 7715 with in-line perpetual calendar. This special one-of-a-kind model complements the time indicators with the display of the days, months, dates and years offering excellent legibility.


On the back of the watch, a sapphire crystal reveals the technical sophistication of the self-winding movement as well as the “Only Watch 2017” and “Pièce unique” engravings.

Estimate: Swiss Francs 80,000 - 100,000


The Montblanc 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Unique Piece Only Watch combines a bronze case with a vintage green dial and matching green alligator strap. The beautiful monopusher chronograph calibre MB M16.29 can be appreciated through the sapphire crystal. Around it, the engraving “Unique Piece - Only Watch 2017”.



Estimate: Swiss Francs 28,000 - 35,000


Moritz Grossmann presents a double lot, linking contemporary design with heritage. In particular, the brand will offer, from their private collection, an original Moritz Grossmann pocket-watch made around 1875.



With it, Moritz Grossmann will also deliver its twin, made on purpose for the occasion. An enamel dial and blue-steel poire hands perfectly matching the original are fitted in a rose gold ATUM case with a precious calibre 100.1 hand-wound movement.

Estimate: Swiss Francs 40,000 - 60,000


Launched in 2011, the Reference 5208 Triple Complication wristwatch showcases Patek Philippe’s mastery in the sphere of grand complication watches. It brings together a minute repeater, a monopusher chronograph, and an instantaneous perpetual calendar displayed in apertures along an arc. This is also one of very few ultra-complicated watches endowed with a self-winding mechanism.


Reference 5208T-010 was created specially for Only Watch 2017. It stands out as the first and only version of this timepiece ever produced in titanium, a metal rarely used for a Patek Philippe. This unique piece features a blue dial adorned with a hand-guilloched carbon-fiber pattern. The caliber R CH 27 PS QI movement, visible through a sapphire-crystal display back, also presents a distinctive finish with the entire movement being black rhodium-plated. The platinum micro-rotor is hand-guilloché with the same decoration as the dial. A blue Cordura strap echoes the dial color.

Estimate: Swiss Francs 900,000 - 1,100,000


TAG Heuer will support this campaign by donating a unique special edition Only Watch box set, containing the new TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45, its accessories, and the manufacture Heuer-02 Tourbillon module, both of which feature the Only Watch signature colours, black and vibrant yellow. The back of the timepiece is engraved "Only Watch 7th edition - 2017” with the number “Only Watch 1/1", to enhance the unique timepiece.




The Connected Modular 45 is the first modular TAG Heuer luxury watch, featuring the Swiss Made mark. This Only Watch version is paired with a yellow strap and bezel. We wrote about it here.

Estimate: Swiss Francs 15,000 - 25,000
