Only Watch 2015 raises over US $11-million

Yesterday, on November 7, the sixth edition of the Only Watch charity auction took place in Geneva, at the La Réserve – Hotel and Spa. 44 incredible one-off timepieces were auctioned to raise funds for research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), and after the final hammer dropped, a total of US $11.268-million had been raised. A fantastic result!

The first Only Watch auction took place in 2005.

The 2015 auction was the most successful in terms of money raised, and the event even made horological history. Patek Philippe’s unique 5016A Grand Complication, which features a steel case and a blue enamel dial, became the most expensive wrist watch in history – the winning bid for the watch was a colossal CHF 7.3-million (US $7,254,740.00).

Below, we’ve listed, and show, all the unique pieces that were auctioned, as well as their winning bids for your reference. We would also like to take this opportunity to pass on our congratulations to the new owners of these unique pieces, as well as to all of the participating brands, a number of who are independents. Well done everyone!
