The first "Only Watch" auction of 2005 was so wildly successful raising €1.9 million Euros for charity (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy), there was little doubt they'd try to follow it up. Two years later, it's back with more rare machines from todays most desirable brands. The event, commissioned by Prince Albert II of Monaco, will offer 35 limited edition and one-of-a-kind prototype watches, or as the horologically correct say "Piéce Unique". The watches will be auctioned at the upcoming 2007 Monaco Yacht Show by Antiquorum. Last years largest fundraiser of €285,000 was the collaboration of Richard Mille and Philippe Starck. They have teamed up again for the ultra-futuristic model titled, “An integral interpretation in titanium" (Shown Above).
