Only Watch” is a biennial charity auction of unique luxury timepieces created by the finest watch brands for research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. It was founded in 2005 by Luc Pettavino, whose own son suffered from this debilitating neuromuscular disorder. The auction has been organized under the patronage of Prince Albert II of Monaco since its inception.
For each edition of “Only Watch”, major watchmaking brands design and produce a one-off timepiece that’s then auctioned off to the highest bidder. These are often special or unique versions of the brands’ iconic models, and as such, they are eagerly anticipated by collectors and enthusiasts. The full proceeds from the sale of these watches go towards funding scientific and medical research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
