Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (AMM) and Christie’s together will host the 2017 Only Watch charity auction on 11 November 2017 at the Four Seasons – Hôtel des Bergues in Geneva. Under the patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, and at the initiative of Luc Pettavino, President of Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (AMM), Only Watch is the world’s foremost charity auction entirely devoted to research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy. All the proceeds of the auction will be donated to scientific and medical research on neuromuscular diseases in general and on Duchenne muscular dystrophy in particular.

Since 2005, more than 25 million euros have been raised to finance fundamental and applied research in this field.

Only Watch is the most prestigious charity auction of the luxury watch industry, bringing together the most renowned houses as well as independent brands, expressing, through exceptional timepieces, their applied creativity and willingness to help and support a very worthy cause.

This is the 7th edition of the charity auction this year, intended to emphasize on unique experiences and collaborations offered by some of the brands, alongside their incredible watches.

Ahead of the auction in November, around 40 pieces will be going on a promotional world tour, including stops in Europe, including the Principality of Monaco, during the Monaco Yacht Show, in Asia, the Middle East, and the United States.

Thomas Perazzi, Head of Christie’s Geneva Watch Department and Auctioneer of the Only Watch charity sales says: “Christie’s international watch department has the enormous pleasure of working closely with the Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies on the 7th edition of Only Watch. Since Christie’s foundation in 1766, the company has been involved in a large variety of charity auctions and with 250 years of experience and knowledge Christie’s and its global team will give its entire support to this important cause. On a personal note, I am delighted to be part of Only Watch, a project that I have closely followed since the beginning.”
