Only Watch 2021 - A 9.5 million desk clock

The Only Watch 2021 auction raised CHF 30 million (EUR 28.5 million) for research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Five of the 53 one-off creations by 54 of the world’s leading watch brands passed the one-million barrier, with a Patek Philippe desk clock reaching 9.5 millions. Inspired by the model delivered to the American collector James Ward Packard in 1923, this unique piece features a perpetual calendar, moon phases, week-number display and power-reserve indication (31 days). It is adjusted to a precision rate of -1/+1 second per day and housed in a sterling silver cabinet with vermeil decorative elements and American walnut inlays.
