Only Watch 2021: 9th edition
November, 6th 2021 at 2 PM
Under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II and at the initiative of Luc Pettavino, President of Association Monégasque Contre les Myopathies, ONLY WATCH is happy to reveal the names of the 54 brands participating in the 9th edition of the biennial charity auction, whose aim is to raise funds for research against Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and the 53 lots that will be auctioned.
Thanks to the generosity of the watchmakers, donors, partners, and the extraordinary international press coverage, this fantastic altruistic impulse has permitted to raise more than 70 million Euros to date.
Speaking of research, creativity and brilliance apply here too. Scientists have been able to dive into the heart of cells in order to accelerate the knowledge of genetic diseases; to highlight and understand the dysfunctions they involve; to initiate the lengthy correction process; and to advance with patience and determination towards therapies thanks to the pioneering techniques they have learned and developed. Today, the Researchers who Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies support have reached the promising stage of preparation for a first clinical trial in 2022, with the reasonable hope of changing the lives of thousands of young people and families. We have come a long way since the first edition of ONLY WATCH in 2005.
