The world-renowned charity auction, Only Watch, will showcase one-off timepieces for the first time in the UAE this week.

The stop in Dubai is part of a global road show before the auction itself in Geneva on November 11. The collection will be on public display at Le Cirque restaurant in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in the Dubai International Financial Centre between 10 am and 6 pm on October 10 and 11.

The 7th edition of the charity event, which was founded by former Managing Director of the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS), Luc Pettavino, was launched on September 27 during the yacht show and will visit Bangkok, Dubai, Istanbul, Hong Kong, Taipei, New York, Los Angeles and Geneva.

Fifty brands, such as Patek Phillippe, Hublot and Audemars Piguet, have created original watches in support of research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic disorder that results in muscle weakness.

All proceeds will be donated to Monaco’s L’Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies in support of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research. Since the auction’s first edition in 2005, and under the High Patronage of HSH Prince Albert, Only Watch has raised over €25 million and has financed numerous scientific and medical research programmes.

Only Watch will next visit Istanbul October 18-19. View the full 2017 catalogue here.
