Upcoming: Only Watch 2013

The Principality of Monaco will be hosting the fifth edition of the "Only Watch" charity watch auction benefiting research for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

From August 30th, an international exhibit of the Only Watch collection of timepieces for men and women will travel the world: Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, New York, Geneva and will be concluded by a presentation during the Monaco Yacht Show (September 25th to 28th). The auction will take place on September 28th at 11 a.m. (GMT+1) in Salle Belle Epoque of Hôtel Hermitage.

Among the visitors, often identified by the brands themselves or the Antiquorum auction house, are collectors and informed amateurs, who include some of the most important in the world.

As in past editions of Only Watch, the sums collected at this 5th edition will be donated in their entirety to the fight against muscular dystrophy, mainly to finance research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a rare neuromuscular auto-immune disease, and an extremely immobilising disorder that affects one in 3,500 boys, i.e. approximately 250,000 children, teenagers and young adults around the world.
