In celebration of two important milestones this year—the ninth edition of the renowned Only Watch charity auction and the 200th anniversary of the inking chronograph created by French watchmaker Nicolas Rieussec—Montblanc has crafted the Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph Only Watch 21 Unique Piece to be auctioned off together with a wooden replica of the historical chronograph from 1821.
There will also be an exclusive and immersive high watchmaking experience alongside the auction, all of which are in support of research for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic disorder characterised by progressive muscle degeneration. Since 2009, Montblanc has supported the Only Watch Charity auction held founder by Luc Pettavino. The watchmaker has helped raise over 70 million euros to date.
The ninth edition will unite 53 watchmakers from both established and smaller independent brands to express the industry's creativity and generosity via exceptional timepieces that come from the heart.
