Only Watch set to raise more funds for a cause

The 2021 Only Watch auction in Geneva, Switzerland, conducted by Christie’s. The 9th edition raised US$32.1mil for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research.

DID you know that since its inaugural edition in 2005, the biennial Only Watch charity auction held in Geneva, Switzerland, has raised over US$113mil for the benefit of research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy?

This has been achieved principally by auctioning highly creative, one-of-a-kind timepieces put forward by leading watch brands – big players and niche independents alike.

The Only Watch auction on Nov 5 is set to be held both physically and virtually, with the bidding starting at 2pm (CET) at Palexpo in Geneva, Switzerland.

The online auction will be available via Christie’s own website,, and by phone.

Under the patronage of Monaco’s ruler, Prince Albert II, and at the initiative of Luc Pettavino, president of the Monaco-based Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies, the auction has become a defining moment in the watch industry, offering the world’s finest watch manufacturers a unique opportunity to innovate, collaborate and create beauty to do good.

Before the auction, the watches will embark on a world tour to give enthusiasts and collectors the opportunity to personally view the one-of-a-kind timepieces.

The tour is kicking off on Sept 6 in Los Angeles, the US, followed by Asian stops in Hong Kong from Oct 5 to 7, Bangkok on Oct 11 and 12, and Singapore from Oct 20 to 22.
