2017 Only Watch char­ity auc­tion

Solitaire (Singapore) - - Content - BY CAROL LEE

Ev­ery two years, watch en­thu­si­asts wait with bated breath as ma­jor brands get to­gether and un­veil unique time­pieces cre­ated spe­cially for Only Watch, a bi­en­nial char­ity auc­tion of unique time­pieces for the ben­e­fit of re­search on Duchenne Mus­cu­lar Dys­tro­phy — a fa­tal mus­cle dis­ease. This year, 49 one-of-a-kind watches will hit the auc­tion block on 11 Novem­ber in Geneva. One hun­dred per cent of the pro­ceeds, es­ti­mated to fetch USD3.9 mil­lion at Christie’s, will go to the re­search funds. From Monaco to New York and Dubai, the watches will go on a world tour that will al­low col­lec­tors to view the unique horo­log­i­cal cre­ations. Here’s a pre­view with some of our favourite en­tries.
