Guiltless Luxury: Highlights From The Only Watch Charity Auction
November 3, 2017 | BY Winston Koo
49 watches will go under the hammer in Geneva to raise funds for research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy
Since its inception in 2005, Only Watch has become the premier international watchmaking charity event, raising funds for research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a rare genetic disease that cruelly strikes down children and young adults.
Watchmakers donate strictly one-off pieces, or the first piece in a series, for auction at the biennial event, which takes place in Geneva next month. The 49 timepieces donated for this year’s auction represent a cross-section of the industry’s style and innovation. The buyers will be helping to make the world a better place as they add remarkable timepieces to their collections.
Here are eight examples that we think will garner the most feverish bidding.
