Only Watch 2017 All the watches

Don't miss our photo gallery of all the one-off models on offer at the biennial charity auction.

For the second time since its first edition in 2005, the world renowned biennial charity auction Only Watch will be staging in Geneva.

On 11 November, this exceptional fundraising for research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy will be opening the autumn Geneva watch auction week, in presence of hundreds of connoisseurs, donators and collectors who will undoubtedly engage in strong bidding competition for the unique timepieces especially made by the finest watchmakers for Only Watch.

For the 2017 edition of Only Watch, it has been proposed, whenever possible and according to the brand’s culture and desire, to combine the timepiece with a unique experience with either a brand ambassador (athletics champion, car racing driver…) or an exceptional event (film festival, fashion show…).

Since 2005, the uniqueness of a project such as Only Watch underlines how great brands from luxury groups or independent craftsmen have achieved to unite in the pursuit of a common goal: financing research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

This synergy, under the patronage and support of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, driven by the enthusiasm shown by individuals within the brands and partners, shows a deep wish to help this noble cause. In six editions, Only Watch has raised more than 25 million euros for Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monaco Association against Duchenne muscular dystrophy) helping make significant advances in research over a decade.

The 49 one-off models of the 2017 Only Watch collection will tour around the globe during one and a half months, starting on 27 September in Monaco.
The Monaco Yacht Show will launch the journey by exhibiting the watches from 27 to 30 September within the show venue. The collection will then be flown to Bangkok (02-03 October/Christie’s), Singapore (05-06 October/The Hour Glass), Dubai (October 09-11/Christie’s & Seddiqi), Hong Kong (23-24 October/Christie’s), Taipei (26-27 October/Christie’s), New-York (October 29-30/Christie’s), Los Angeles (1-2 November/Westime), and finally Geneva (9-11 November/Christie’s).
