Only Watch raises CHF 38,593,000 for charity

Only watch raises CHF 38,593,000 for charity, with one watch selling for CHF 31,000,000, making it the most expensive watch ever sold!

The story begins in 2004 with a father called Luc Pettavino whose late son suffered from muscular dystrophy. Pettavino had always been an active fundraiser for research into his son’s illnessa devastating myopathy that affects one in 3,000 male birthsorganizing events and auctions to raise money. He had some contacts in the watch industry thanks to his work at the Monaco Yacht Show and one day had the brilliant idea to create a watch-only auction called Only Watch, where all the proceeds would help further research.

Only Watch takes place every two years and this year marked the eighth edition of the auction with 50 brands taking part and CHF 38,593,000 raised for charity.

We have done a lot already and are conscious that there is still much to be done and that this initiative needs, more than ever, help and support.” Luc Pettavino.
