“I want to state how proud I am of the progress we’ve achieved thanks to our collective effort on Only Watch. Monaco has been the epicenter of this beautiful initiative, pioneering in innovative ways to fund research and have it move faster, further, in a more collective way too. And today, thanks to you, we are on the verge of clinical trials for a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, with researchers working in symbiosis in Monaco, in France, in Switzerland, giving hope to thousands of boys and men around the world. (...) To all supporters of the cause...you have my gratitude.”

Luc Pettavino
Founder / Organiser of Only Watch

“Breaking records is obviously a source of pride and happiness. What a beautiful moment and emotion shared together! And what matters most today is the difference we are going to be able to make in research against muscular dystrophies and for hundreds of thousands of patients and families around the world for their lives to get better.”

Earl of Snowdon

It has been a fantastic 12 month-long project, 10 cities and thousands of catalogues, it is amazing to see such an enthusiastic response across the globe. We are thankful and thrilled to have contributed to raise CHF38.6 million that researchers will put to immediate use. Furthermore, Christie’s would like to congratulate Luc Pettavino, for receiving the “Prix Spécial du Jury du Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève 2019”, last Thursday, a very well-deserved distinction”
