The Only Watch 2013 charity auction is just a few weeks away now.

Since I live in Switzerland in close proximity to just about everything to do with watches, I’ve been asked by (where I happen to be a moderator) to provide live photos of the unique watches coming up at the Only Watch 2013 charity auction in Monaco later this year.

Only Watch is a biannual charity auction held in the Principality of Monaco under the High Patronage of HRH Prince Albert II, where some of the biggest watch brands as well as a few independents donate a unique piece to raise funds for the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy.

For the first time this year, I got to take exclusive photos of the entire collection for, who have created an Only Watch 2013 Forum for the occasion, where you can see all my live photos as well as the press releases.

Having seen them all in person, I present my favorite 5 (in no particular order):

Hublot Red Ceramic



Patek Philippe 5004 Titanium



DeBethune DB28 Skybridge MC



Christophe Claret X-TREM-1 Pinball



Chopard L.U.C Tourbillon
