Support for the A.M.M foundation

Beyond its involvement in environmental protection, the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS)  extends its societal commitment to the Monegasque Association against the Myopathies (A.M.M) by supporting medical research, particularly on Duchenne muscular dystrophy. A genetic disease that affects one birth in 3500, mostly boys.

Since 2001, the MYS has supported the Monegasque Association against Myopathies (A.M.M.), which became the Only Project Foundation in June 2023.

Within the Foundation, it is the Only Watch project, a biennial charity auction founded by Luc Pettavino, president of the A.M.M., that primarily funds research. Only Watch has now become the world's largest charity auction for high watchmaking, raising over EUR 128 million for scientific research since 2005. Its success has accelerated scientific research avenues with the ultimate goal of developing a drug to treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

The MYS supports research by hosting and promoting the traveling exhibition of the Only Watch watch collection when it stops in Monaco during the show. The MYS also continues to support research by making a donation to the foundation in years when the auction does not take place (€37,000 in 2021).

Only Watch is organized by the A.M.M. under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.
