Sea, Sun, and Yachts with the Fine Watch Club
Editor: Joy Corthésy
Since January, the Fine Watch Club, the first international watch owner’s club, has been organising exclusive events for its members, giving them access to the behind-the-scenes of watchmaking brands and a chance to speak to the figures behind the most iconic watches in the industry today. Providing a unique look into haute horlogerie, which has all too often been out of reach to many enthusiasts, the Fine Watch Club is continuing in its quest to bridge that gap between consumers and brands by announcing its next offer: an exclusive tour and visit of the Monaco Yacht Show and the Only Watch 2019 exhibition.
One of the biggest worldwide gatherings of superyachts, the Monaco Yacht Show is the premiere event of the year for all those passionate about luxury and yachts. Set in the backdrop of Monaco’s yacht-lined harbour in the French Mediterranean coastline, the Fine Watch Club is organising an exclusive visit to the Monaco Yacht Show, where members will be able to visit a superyacht, followed by a lunch overlooking the harbour. At the end of the day, members will be welcomed to the Ulysse Nardin lounge (title sponsor of the Monaco Yacht Show) for a cocktail and a preview of their Monaco Yacht Show limited edition watches.
Members will also have the opportunity to visit the Only Watch 2019 exhibition during the first stop of its worldwide tour. Under the High Patronage of H.S.H Prince Albert II, Only Watch is held every two years and unites 52 high-end watchmaking brands that each produce a pièce unique to be auctioned off at a Christie’s auction in November. All proceeds from the auction are donated to the Monegasque Association Against Muscular Dystrophy to further its research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy. From Patek Philippe to Tudor to MB&F, you would be hard pressed to find a brand not participating in this cause, creating unique pieces that, in the past, have broken auction records. Members will have the opportunity to be amongst the first to see this year’s Only Watch pieces and even talk to Luc Pettavino, the founder of Only Watch.
Two dates are available for this exclusive day in Monaco: Wednesday 25th or Thursday 26th of September, 2019 (maximum 10 participants per day and one guest per participant). To know more on this offer, click here.
