Only Watch 2011

€4,563,000 to support the research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

In the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, the fourth edition of the bi-annual ONLY WATCH Charity Auction was held at the Hotel Hermitage in Monaco on September 23. The sale brought in the outstanding amount of €4,563,000 to support the research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Patek Philippe’s 3939HA Minute Repeater Tourbillon in steel went for an amazing 1.4 million Euro, or nearly $2 million US. The auction room was full and the sale generated intense internet and telephone bidding from around the world.

Luc Pettavino, President of the Monaco Yacht Show and founder of the Monegasque Association Against Muscular Dystrophy, declared, “In the face of this marvellous result, I cannot but thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for everything that they have given of their talents to such a noble cause and with such humanity, excellence and altruism. Not least the brands, collectors, personalities, partners, organizers – a group of men and women that, with their collective energies orientated towards the same objective, have once again given this evening with humility and joy, the right of hope for healing to 1,000s of children in the world.”

“The amazing outcome achieved today is the result of a perfect combination of the involvement of 40 of the world’s greatest watchmakers that have come together to offer a collection of exceptional and unique timepieces, an impressive and intense world tour with previews in the right locations to reach out to watch aficionados and connoisseurs, as well as our continuous and considerable efforts in raising awareness among the collectors”, commented Julien Schaerer, Managing Director and Auctioneer at Antiquorum Geneva.

After the auction, H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco thanked everyone for their work and support on this fantastic project.
