The 7th edition of Only Watch raised a total of CHF 10,776,500 and was sold 100% to benefit research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

The auction room welcomed watchmakers, collectors and philanthropists, alongside 300 supporters in the auction room and many more bidders joined the sale via Christie’s online bidding facility or on the phones. A total of 45 countries participated in the sale. Each of the 50 unique watches, each donated by a leading watch manufacturer, has been highly competed for and the atmosphere in the room was electric with several applauding moments.

Luc Pettavino, president de l’Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies and founder of Only Watch commented after the auction: “We have won many battles together. The battle of altruism and empathy in amongst all of us: brands, partners, donors. The battle of beauty and research of excellence. The battle of awareness for research on Duchenne muscular Dystrophy with the largest media buzz ever. Now, let continue pushing hard, as we do need to win the battle to cure this disease.”
