This fall, buying a luxury watch just might make you a do-gooder. The biennial Only Watch charity auction takes place in Geneva on November 11th, and each of the 49 timepieces up for grabs was created especially for the event. Proceeds help fund research for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic disorder that causes muscles to gradually waste away.
And even if you're not in the market to do some serious spending, there's no harm in looking, right? Keep scrolling to see 9 of the most dazzling watches for sale:
Chronographe Monopoussoir Rattapante by F.P. Journe
This Tantalum timepiece is as high-tech as it gets (it even measures time down to the split-second). An eye-catching blue dial with yellow telemeter scale measures the distance traveled by sound; an orange tachymeter scale measures distance in kilometers. The movement itself is made of mirror-polished 18K rose gold.
Estimate: $208,000 – $415,000; onlywatch.com
