On November 2, 2017, the renowned biennial charity-auction ONLY WATCH, in partnership with Christies, made their only West Coast stop on its ten-leg world tour at our Westime Sunset boutique. Since its start in 2005, ONLY WATCH has become the platform for the world’s most talked about watchmakers to unite in the pursuit of a common cause: to increase funding for research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Watch aficionados gathered from all over came to marvel and try on the 52 unique timepieces on display from major name brands such as Audemars Piguet, Girard-Perregaux, Hublot, Patek Philippe, and MB&F, to name a few. The night was filled with delicious hors d'oeuvres and specialty cocktails by AN | Crustacean Beverly Hills with jazzy tunes by DJ Lee Dyson. Photos and video by Brad A. Kinnan
On November 11, 2017 in Geneva, the ONLY WATCH auction was held, an important highlight from that was the highest bid of 6 million 200 thousand for the Patek Philippe wristwatch. Patek, as always, played a very large role in the charitable contribution.
