Once again, Maison Breguet confirms its presence at the 2021 edition of Only Watch, a major charity event organized by the Monegasque Muscular Dystrophy Association, but also a highly anticipated moment in the international watchmaking calendar.
Inaugurated in 2005, this biennial event has enjoyed the support of Breguet and the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco since its inception. Sensitive to the seriousness of these diseases and keen to affirm his commitment to the fight against childhood illnesses, Marc A. Hayek, President of Montres Breguet, will once again donate a unique timepiece.
