The Only Watch auction, a bi-annual “watch auction” for a good cause, will take place in Monaco on September 28. Many watch brands – 33 to be precise – have committed to donating a pièce unique (unique piece). Except Bell & Ross… they will donate a box of six unique timepieces from the Aviation collection!
All proceeds of the auction, hosted by Antiquorum Auctioneers and the Monaco Yacht Show, will be donated to the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy. This degenerative neuromuscular disease affects 1 in 3,500 boys, therefore 250,000 children, adolescents, and young adults around the world. MONOCHROME supports this good cause and will be reporting news and information about the timepieces, their journey around the world – to enable collectors around the world to see the watches on auction first hand – and the auction.
From September 6th, an exhibit of the Only Watch collection of timepieces will travel the world: Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, New York, Geneva and will be concluded by a presentation during the Monaco Yacht Show. The auction will take place on September 28th at 11 a.m. (GMT+1) in the “Salle Belle Epoque” of the Hôtel Hermitage.
The set of six unique watches all feature orange accents on the dial or engraved on the underside of the crystal. The BR01 HORIZON, ALTIMETER and TURN COORDINATOR, created in 2012, and the BR01 HEADING INDICATOR, AIRSPEED and CLIMB, created in 2013 come in a beautiful collector’s box, similar to the set of 99 pieces that we showed you here including a detailed explanation of the in 2013 introduced pieces. Target price for the entire box set is € 24.000 Euro.
We will keep you informed about the Only Watch auction and the unique timepieces. For more detailed information of all six Bell & Ross watches, please visit your friends of Watchonista here.
