All the Unique Watches to be Auctioned at Only Watch 2021
No fewer than 53 lots with some pretty impressive watches... for a very good cause.
Founded in 2005, Only Watch has become one of the most important horological events of the industry, with many major brands and independent watchmakers donating watches specifically created for the occasion and unique in their design, colours or even mechanisms. Under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II and at the initiative of Luc Pettavino – founder of the Association Monégasque Contre les Myopathies (AMM) – Only Watch is a biennial fundraiser whose aim is to raise funds for research against Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Since its creation, it has raised more than EUR 70 million, entirely given to research. Now in its 9th edition, 53 lots will be auctioned at Only Watch 2021.
The lots will be auctioned in collaboration with Christie’s for the third consecutive time, on 6 November 2021, at 2 PM (Geneva time), at the Four Seasons Hôtel des Bergues in Geneva.
In the weeks preceding the auction, the watches will be presented to the public, media, and horological enthusiasts during a promotional tour that will start on 22 September in Monaco, at the Monaco Yacht Show, and will end in Geneva on 6 November.

The Czapek is going to be amazing I bet, as well as the Akrivia. That Baltic is right up my alley, but I can’t stop looking at the Atelier de Chronométrie – it’s hardly subtle, but quite splendid. They have a great eye for design.
Seems that orange color is becoming HOT this year!
Orange is the new green.
