Scientific partners and their teams working on Duchenne muscular dystrophy are enormously helped by money raised ONLY Watch
Watchmakers who are writing the history of this artistic craft once again stepped up the plate to provide strong support for research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a highly debilitating neuromuscular disease that affects one boy in 3,500, meaning 250,000 children, teenagers and young adults globally. Thanks to 40 leading watchmakers of the world, the ONLY Watch 2011 raised € 4.5 million, about USD $ 6,075,000.
ONLY Watch is the fruit of the quest for excellence, the creativity, the investment in terms both of time and expertise, and of teams that are motivated by an extraordinary project. It is exceptional to be able to contribute to the emergence of potential treatment options and to create hope by creating beauty. After being showcased in nine great capitals of luxury watch collectors, the ONLY Watch 2011 Collection was exhibited at Monaco Yacht Show, the world’s leading Superyacht show which co-organises ONLY Watch with the Monaco Association against Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
