Luc Pettavino is the founder of Only Watch, a biennial charity auction of one-off luxury timepieces created by the finest watch manufacturers for research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Co-founder of the Association Monegasque contre les Myopathies (AMM), he has been working since 2001 for the search of therapeutic solutions for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a condition that afflicted his son Paul who passed away in November 2016 at the age of 21.
Calling it an "altruistic project", Only Watch challenges luxury watch brands, who normally compete against each other all year round, to come together and showcase their creativity for a great cause.
Ahead of this year's Only Watch auction on November 11, 2017, we spoke to Luc about his inspiration behind the cause, and why it means so much to him.
