ONLY WATCH
CHARITY AUCTION
7 TH EDITION



Only Watch is a biennial charity auction of one-off luxury timepieces created by the finest watch manufacturers for research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Only Watch has become a world-renowned charity event, of which the success is based on the generosity, altruism and willingness expressed by organisers, partners and watch brands.

All participating brands offer their watches, partners offer their services, logistical or organisational supports. Thanks to their support, the costs for organising Only Watch represents less than 2% of the auction result. Since the first edition in 2005, Only Watch has aggregated over 25 million Euros that enabled to finance numerous scientific and medical research programmes.

The 7th edition will be held on 11 November 2017. The event is organized by Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monaco Association against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy) and is supported by His Sovereign Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.
