So far, 40 renowned watchmakers created and donated their one-of-a-kind watches to the fourth Only Watch charity auction that will take place in Monaco, on 22 September 2011. This special event is organized every two years by Antiquorum Auctioneers, Geneva and the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophies (AMM), in order to help Duchenne muscular dystrophy research.
The exceptional auction that will be organized during the Monaco Yacht Show, under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II, will be a great opportunity for the lovers of luxury watches to visit Monaco and donate money for a great cause.
It is important to know that all the proceeds will be used to support the fight against the most common fatal genetic disease of children. Since the previous event in September 2009, Only Watch has donated 2.5 million euros to 18 organizations with 90 researchers, clinicians and chemists.
