Only Watch 2019: 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.

Only Watch 2019

The 8th edition will take place on Saturday 9 November 2019, at 2PM at the Four Seasons Hôtel des Bergues, in Geneva, under the hammer of Christie’s. 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.

100% of the proceeds will be directly invested in scientific and medical research on neuromuscular diseases in general and on Duchenne muscular dystrophy in particular. An achievement made possible by to the generous donation and participation of the 52 watch brands, the partners offering a variety of services and logistical support, the media offering substantial coverage and the auctioneer.

Since the first edition in 2005, Only Watch has aggregated more than 40 million Euros that enabled to finance numerous scientific and medical research programs.

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.
