An occasion coveted by discerning watch collectors, the biennial Only Watch auction offers buyers the chance to acquire unique timepieces while benefiting a great cause, theAssociation Monégasque contre les Myopathies,which funds research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

For its 7th edition, Arnold & Son decided to join Only Watch 2017 by creating a unique Time Pyramid watch, offering a bold and contemporary execution on the singular skeleton timepiece with striking black, red and white accents.                        

In the span of two hours, the Only Watch 2017 auction saw 50 lots of unique timepieces from 50 prestigious brands and creators, attracting bidders from all over the world.
Lot 48 was the Arnold & Son Time Pyramid, one of the final lots in the auction. After receiving bids from buyers in the room as well as over the phone, the unique Time Pyramid ultimately sold for CHF 38'000 - well above the original estimate of CHF 25'000 - 35'000.

In total, the 50 lots of the Only Watch 2017 charity auction raised CHF 10'776'500, with 99% of proceeds going to theAssociation Monégasque contre les Myopathiesto fund research for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy treatment, with administration costs running at under 1%.

Arnold & Son thanks all the bidders for their generosity and congratulates the buyer on acquiring the unique Time Pyramid and aiding a noble cause.
