Worldwide charity auction Only Watch will be making a pit stop in Dubai later this year as it embarks on a global tour.
Later this month a world tour will kick off in the lead up to Only Watch, one of the world’s biggest watch charity auctions that will take place this November in Geneva.
Only Watch is a bi-annual exhibition organized under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco that this year will see 50 unique watches auctioned to benefit research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
In the build-up to the final event, the 50 watches will travel to ten different locations around the world, including to Dubai, as part of a travelling exhibition that will showcase to watch enthusiasts what will be on offer at the grand event.
The world tour will start in Monaco on 25th September and continue to Dubai where the pieces will be exhibited at Christie’s in association with Seddiqi, from 1st to 3rd October.
The watch models on offer include pieces from 52 luxury watchmakers including Bovet, Piaget, Zenith, Ulysse Nardin, Jaeger Le Coulture and more. Two duos, De Bethune and Urwerk and L’epée and MB&F, will work together to present one watch. The pieces are one of a kind watches that cannot be brought anywhere else. Each specifically designed piece will showcase some of the world’s best watchmaking.
Since its inception in 2005, Only Watch has raised around AED1.4 million, with 100 per cent of the proceeds being directly invested into the scientific and medical research on neuromuscular diseases and specifically on Duchenne muscular dystrophy a disease that affects millions of children around the world.
The exhibition will be at Christie’s Dubai, on 1st to 3rd, October, Gate Village, Building 5, Podium Level, Dubai International Financial Centre, Dubai.
