The numbers are now in following the conclusion of this year’s ONLY WATCH.

In front of an audience of 850 watch enthusiasts, 52 one-off watches were auctioned off for a total of $32 million USD towards the research of muscular dystrophy. With 25 participating counties, this ninth edition of ONLY WATCH has raised more than $110 million USD for the cause.

In the lots, five timepiees surpassed the one million dollar mark — Patek Philippe ($10.4 million USD), F.P.Journe ($4.92 million USD), Audemars Piguet ($3.4 million USD), Richard Mille ($2.3 million USD), and De Bethune x Kari Voutilainen (1.42 million USD).

“As the world emerges in the post-pandemic era, it is both humbling and gratifying to see how ONLY WATCH’s message of hope, determination and confidence in the future has again resonated so strongly both with the community of watchmakers who contributed such masterpieces and the community of watch aficionados and generous donators who participated from around the world,” says Luc Pettavino, President of the Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monaco Association Against Muscular Dystrophy) and Founder/Organizer of ONLY WATCH.
