RETURNING FROM THE WORLD TOUR, THE COLLECTION IS MAKING ITS WAY TO GENEVA
Only Watch will hold its groundbreaking 8th auction of unique timepieces on November 9th 2019 at 2pm (UTC+1), at the Four Seasons Hôtel des Bergues Geneva, under the High Patronage and in presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco
and under the hammer of the prestigious auction house CHRISTIE’S, offering an auction without any buyer’s premium’.
After a remarkable launch this summer, unveiling the participating brands and visuals of the watches, Only Watch immediately became the leading watchmaking topic.
The collection then embarked on a world tour, launched in September at the Monaco Yacht Show, and travelled during 7 weeks to major cities around the world: Dubai, Paris, London, New York, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taipei. A fruitful moment that confirmed the immense expectations and interest for the auction all around the world.
“The 2019 world tour was the most intense and exciting ever. On all the stopovers, we received such a warm welcome. Not a single hour passed by when we didn’t engage with collectors, journalists, influencers, partners. The Only Watch community has just grown bigger and I’m truly happy about it. Thank you to all of those who made it possible and successful. Now, let’s stay focused and onto the most important part: the auction!” – says Luc Pettavino, founder of Only Watch and President of the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy
This weekend, starting Thursday 7th of November, the 50 sought-after rarities will find their way to Geneva, Switzerland, where they will be displayed at the Four Seasons Hôtel des Bergues Geneva before being auctioned on Saturday 9th November.
The eagerly awaited auction is expected to be held in a swarming audience gathering supporters, collectors, philanthropists, watchmaking manufacturer representatives and press. The event, that should last approximately 2 hours, will be the climax of the journey that the whole watch industry has embarked on with Only Watch in the past year; a journey that has allowed all to witness to ever-growing interest for the one-of-a-kind pieces donated by the brands and the unique format of the charitable event.
