Following three successful previous sessions, the fourth Only Watch charity auction will officially open on September 22nd during the Monaco Yacht Show. At that time, 38 luxury watch brands from the world will participate in the auction of watches specially made for the auction. Before that, these watches will be toured in 10 cities around the world at the end of August. As one of the 38 high-end watch brands, Glashütte Original donated a German Gold Observatory-certified watch with a red gold and black plate to support charity. Glashütte Original’s newest watch donated by Glashütte Original
   This donated brand new watch is a modification of Glashütte Original’s most representative German Observatory-certified watch. It uses a classic dial with pocket watch characteristics. The dial is elegant and beautiful with an embossed railway pattern. And the Roman numeral hour markers complement each other, adding classical elements to it, the small seconds ring at 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock and the power reserve display are perfectly matched with the central polished rose gold minute hand and pear-shaped hour hand. In addition, the watch has a large calendar window unique to Glashütte at 3 o’clock, and the number ‘1/1’ is engraved on the left side of the display window, while the case is engraved with ‘One of a kind’ , Also adds specialness to it. In terms of power, the essence of the brand can be seen through the anti-glare sapphire crystal back cover-the self-made caliber cal.58-01, which can provide a 45-hour power reserve for the watch.
   The Only Watch Charity Auction is held every two years to help the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophies raise funds to support long-term and in-depth research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a condition that causes extreme muscle weakness (On average there is one out of every 3,500 boys, and a total of 250,000 adolescents worldwide suffer from the disease). At present, it has successfully held three sessions. Among them, the third Only Watch charity auction in 2009/2010 raised a total of 3 million US dollars and was donated to 15 institutes in France, Italy, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
