ONLY WATCH 2019

9 NOVEMBER 2019. 2PM - GENEVA

The biennial charity auction is back! Luc Pettavino’s Only Watch auction is set to take place November 9th at Christie's Geneva. At the auction, 52 unique novelties from some of the world's brightest watchmakers. From Patek Philippe to Akrivia, this year's Only Watch auction is on course to beat 2017's record-breaking haul of over $12 million dollars.

The best part? It's all for a good cause — the Monegasque Association against Muscular dystrophy (AMM). Pettavino is a co-founder of the charity and has been working tirelessly since 2001 to fund and help find therapeutic Solutions for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. A condition that afflicted his son Paul, who passed away in 2016 at the age of 21.
