Only Watch 2013 Auction & Preview in New York City
The fifth edition of the renowned Only Watch charity auction, one of the year’s most anticipated charitable events, will take place in Monaco this fall, under the high patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II. Featuring unique timepieces from the world’s leading watch manufacturers, the auction will be held on September 28 at the legendary Hermitage Hotel, in the heart of Monte-Carlo.
The extraordinary collection will go under the hammer of the world’s premier watch auctioneers, Antiquorum, with all proceeds benefitting research for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a degenerative neuromuscular disease affecting 1 in 3,500 boys worldwide.
“It is an honor and great pleasure for Antiquorum to lend our support again this year to the exceptional Only Watch auction, “said Evan Zimmermann, President & CEO Antiquorum Auctioneers. “ We are delighted to participate in the fifth edition of this remarkable charity event that has already garnered an incredible 10 Million Euros since its inception and given hope to all those who suffer with this debilitating disease.”
Prior to the auction, Antiquorum will exhibit the exceptional timepieces around the world. On September 16 and 17, New Yorkers will have the opportunity to preview the entire collection from 10am to 6pm at Antiquorum’s US headquarters at 595 Madison Avenue in New York City. To kick off the event, the Consulate General of Monaco will host an exclusive (by invitation only) reception on Monday, September 16.
“In keeping with Monaco’s philanthropic history, our offices in New York are delighted to again partner with ONLY WATCH and Luc Pettavino. He, and Monegasques like him work hard to spread goodwill and compassion far beyond Monaco’s small borders, always inspiring us to reach for answers to life’s challenges,” said Maguy Maccario Doyle, Consul General and Director of the Monaco Government Tourist Office.
