On ONLY WATCH, doing good means participating in the effort, one way or another, that leads to the elaboration of a cure for neuromuscular diseases and Duchenne muscular dystrophy in particular. Thanks to ONLY WATCH and the 35 million Euros (40 million Swiss Francs) we have raised over the last years, tens of scientific researchers around the world are currently actively working and accelerating every day, to enter the decisive phase of clinical trials on human patients.

Doing good also means being coherent on all fronts and having no negative impact whilst doing so; this is why ONLY WATCH entirely compensates its carbon footprint that has been estimated at about 670 tons of CO².

Only Watch World Tour


One month and a half away from the 2019 ONLY WATCH charity auction, one of the most looked for events of the watchmaking year, the 50 unique lots that compose the collection have left for a world tour on 25th of September taking them to 4 different continents around the globe. The 10 stop-over cities are having the privilege of welcoming the most beautiful selection of unique watches ever gathered to finance research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy. 

Luc Pettavino, founder of the Only Watch


« THANK YOU to all of those who have said YES to ONLY WATCH since its creation in 2005. It has been a fantastic human adventure. Simple and powerful. It’s a very beautiful demonstration of empathy, trust, generosity… it’s also a lot of hard work from all the participants and a desire to « do their bit » thanks to a project that does good while creating beauty.

With the launch of the world tour starts the last phase of this edition, the one where the people who are interested in this generous project can see the unique pieces with their own eyes, give and receive a lot of positive energy on each stopover exhibition. It’s a privilege for me to be part of them, alongside the Christie’s team. 

To me, ONLY WATCH is also a success in the fact that it portrays a world where diversity doesn’t create opposition but instead works in harmony, in a common effort to do good, and where altruism, cooperation and the public interest take over selfishness and the « every man/woman for him/herself » approach.

Science, financed amongst others by projects like ONLY WATCH, will soon bring us solutions to the agonizing problem that are incurable diseases. 

Let’s keep in mind that the Other, is also a part of us. So, long live altruism and fraternity! »
