Only Watch comes around once every two years in aid of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This year the auction is set to take place on November 9th at Christie’s Geneva.
Up for auction are 52 novelties, each one of them a one-off, from some of the world’s finest watchmakers. This year’s Only Watch auction is on course to beat 2017’s record-breaking haul of over $12 million dollars.
H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Moon
H. Moser & Cie’s contribution pays tribute to the moon in a large window at 6 o’clock. Surrounding it is only space, as the Endeavour Perpetual Moon Only is part of H. Moser & Cie.’s Concept series, without logo or indices.
The dial, made from Vantablack®, a super-black coating that holds the world record as the darkest man-made substance, and to which world-famous sculptor Sir Anish Kapoor holds the exclusive rights, accentuates this impression, giving the sensation of looking into a real black hole at its center out of which the moon shines.
Within the 5N red gold case of the Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Only Watch beats the HMC 801 hand wound Manufacture movement, equipped with the interchangeable Moser escapement. This caliber ensures the watch has a minimum 7-day power reserve, with an indicator on the movement side.
The moon phase system is an extremely precise display that can be set to within a minute. A perpetual moon, the Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Only Watch is one of the most precise moon phases available, with one day’s deviation every 1027 years.
The watch will be on display in Monaco during the Monaco Yacht Show, which takes place between September 25th and 28th, 2019.
The Only Watch 2019 collection will also go on tour in Dubai, Paris, London, New York, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taipei, and, finally, Geneva, from November 7th to 9th, 2019.
