ONLY WATCH 2013: See What Brands To Expect Wild Watches From Sales & Auctions

We love the ONLY WATCH auction that takes place every other year in Monaco for the support of charity. Why do we love it? Well a range of participating watch brands produce totally unique watches that are auctioned off for charity (Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy). The pieces are sometimes mere color variations on existing models, and sometimes they are radically new models that are production concepts or signs of things to come. In any event, they are all one-off pieces (with the exception of models that are “#1” in a limited edition). The brands do it for the massive media exposure and marketing opportunity.

UPDATE: See the aBlogtoWatch full list of Only Watch 2013 Watches.

2013 is the 5th edition of the Only Watch (administered and operated by auctioneer Antiquorum) auction and it will take place later in 2013 on September 28th. The participating brands will slowly release their Only Watch pieces until then. While more brands may be added later, here are the companies that we expect to see interesting timepieces from over the next several months:

  • Backes & Strauss
  • Bell & Ross
  • Blancpain
  • Breguet
  • Chanel
  • Chopard
  • ChronoSwiss
  • Christophe Claret
  • Corum
  • Cyrus
  • deLaCour
  • De Bethune
  • DeWitt
  • Franck Muller
  • Frédérique Constant
  • The case is quite big. In 44mm wide, 53.7mm long, and 15.8mm thick, it is going to wear very prominently on many wrists. All the best to observe that the dial, which is sure to catch people’s attention with its applied, oversize Arabic numeral hour markers and large hands matching the situation colour. The dial color changes as you will see from the pictures, along with my personal preference is the gray dial which I think gives the best background for the other elements to stand out against.Cutting off the six o’clock marker is a small, circular date window which is sure to bug a lot of people. It doesn’t quite match the remainder of the watch’s aesthetic and may have been better handled. By comparison, the strap has been quite well done. . .don’t judge one or more one of these watches completely until you place one on your wrist.” Bearing that in mind, I will say that I look forward to getting a hands-on together with the Franck Muller Vanguard Chronograph, judging by the launch images and data, I think it is the more balanced and exciting of the Vanguard models. The Franck Muller Vanguard Chronograph is priced at $15,800 and if you’re one for bold watches, it can be worth seeing the watch on your own and taking a peek to Franck Muller’s world of “Pure Imagination.”

  • Girard Perregaux
  • Glasshütte Original
  • Harry Winston
  • Heritage Watch Manufactory
  • Hublot, Ikepod
  • Jaquet Droz
  • Ladoire
  • Laurent Ferrier
  • Louis Vuitton

  • Piaget
  • Richard Mille
  • Roger Dubuis
  • Armin Strom
  • Ulysse Nardin
  • Vacheron Constantin
  • Van Cleef & Arpels
  • Vulcain

That is a huge number of brands and you can compare them to the all the pieces from the Only Watch 2011 auction. We look forward to sharing with you the auction pieces as they trickle out leading up to the event in September of 2013.
