a first “in-house” tourbillon for Only Watch 2023

On the back side, a transparent and anti-reflective sapphire crystal allows you to discover the oscillating weight. This is also a unique component, made exclusively for the Tiefenmesser Tourbillon Only Watch. It is made of tungsten then finished with a surface treatment which ensures its homogeneity with the bronze case.

It is then specially engraved with the indications found on the engine controls of old submarines, the famous “chadburns”: two sectors (forward, reverse) interspersed with the stopping position of the submersible, with both and on the other hand the five engine speeds associated with the selected step.

This charity auction has been held every two years since 2005 and is used to finance scientific research against Duchenne disease. A disease that affects one in 3,000 boys at birth, including the son of the founder of Only Watch, Luc Pettavino, who died…

Beyond the “advanced medicine” aspect which is financed by the sale of these watches, all unique pieces, Only Watch has become over time a real institution.

It is, on the one hand, an important meeting for scientific research, but it has also become a real barometer of the desirability of brands and their potential in terms of investment: in fact, depending on the results, but also depending on the creativity of the watchmakers, the auctions take off… or not!
