THE CHARITY AUCTION ONLY WATCH
Cooperation with Konstantin Chaykin
On November 9, 2019, one of the most significant events of the watch industry will come - the eighth charity auction will be held ONLY WATCH
The charity auction was established in 2005 by Luke Pettavino, President of the Monaco Association for the Fight against Myopathy, to finance research on Duchenne myopathy and the search for ways to treat this dangerous disease. Since then every two years, ONLY WATCH is held in the fall.
Konstantin Chaykin & Only Watch
The impressive debut of the Joker Only Watch-2017 in the Only Watch auction left Konstantin Chaykin with no choice – the collaboration with Only Watch should continue. In preparation for the new auction, scheduled for 2019, he decided to surpass the zirconium Joker and create an even more extravagant watch. A Joker again, but much more emotionally charged.

Hard to imagine, almost impossible in fact, since the already incredibly charismatic Joker watch is again taken as a starting point. However, Konstantin Chaykin came up with an ambitious idea. The new formula of the Joker should include the image of the watchmaker, the traditions and history of watchmaking, as well as a few pages from the chronicle of his own watch manufactory Konstantin Chaykin.
The extraordinary debut of the Joker watch at Only Watch-2017
The debut of Konstantin Chaykin's creation at the seventh Only Watch auction two years ago turned out to be very successful: a unique Joker Only Watch-2017 watch with a case made of exotic zirconium, rarely used in watchmaking, was sold for 45,000 Swiss francs, starting with an estimate of 10,000–15,000 francs. The formula "Konstantin Chaykin & Only Watch" has proven to be very effective.
Why Only Watch auction is attractive for the connoisseur of fine watchmaking
The Only Watch auction, considered to be one of the main events in the calendar of the luxury watch industry, was established in 2005 by Luc Pettavino, the president of "Association Monégasque Contre les Myopathies", with the aim of financing research on Duchenne myopathy and the search for ways to treat this dangerous disease. Each Only Watch auction since 2005 has featured fine and rare examples of modern watchmaking art, usually created by participating brands as unique pieces.

As a rule, brands present to Only Watch variations of existing models in production, and very rarely do they develop a new, special watch for the event. The high level of the event and its noble mission attracted the attention of Konstantin Chaykin. He decided to take the opportunity to help the charity and use this chance to reveal his creativity and extraordinary approach while developing a unique piece for the Only Watch auction.

Konstantin Chaykin first took part in Only Watch two years ago. On Saturday, November 9, 2019, in Geneva, with the assistance of Christie's auction house, the eighth Only Watch charity auction will be held. The sale will feature a collection of unique masterpieces of watchmaking created by the world's leading watch brands for this event.
