53 One-Of-A-Kind Timepieces Are Being Auctioned Off For Charity

Every two years, the Only Watch charity auction enlists dozens of luxury watch brands to create one-of-a-kind timepieces to be auctioned off to raise funds for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research. For this year’s event, a total of 54 brands are contributing 53 lots to be auctioned off, and they include some unbelievable watches.

One of the most impressive is F.P. Journe’s entry, which is based on an idea by director Francis Ford Coppola, took seven years of development, and utilizes a mechanical human hand on the dial to display the time. Also noteworthy is a complicated desk clock from Patek Philippe that houses a perpetual calendar, moonphase, 31-day power reserve, and has been regulated to be accurate within +/- 1 second per day. Other standouts include a unique “aged” Tudor Black Bay GMT Master Chronometer, a Zenith Defy Double Tourbillon designed by artist Felipe Pantone and housed in a sapphire case, and an H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner with a Vantablack dial and cylindrical tourbillon movement. The watches will be auctioned off in collaboration with Christie’s at the Four Seasons Hotel in Geneva, Switzerland on Nov. 6. For more information on the lots, visit Only Watches’ website or their Instagram page.
