by Guillaume V. - 29/09/2014
Were any further proof needed that the Asian market is strategic for many watchmaker houses, the launch today of Watches & Wonders 2014 in Hong-Kong would confirm this. After last year’s success - more than 16,000 visitors came - this 2nd edition is also a recognition for watch enthusiasts and collectors of this region who will enjoy direct access to exceptional pieces, presented exclusively.
For 3 days, 13 of the most prestigious brands will showcase not only the most beautiful watches there is, but will also explain - as emphasizes Richard Mille, CEO of the eponymous brand - “the backstage of creation, histories and passions which prelude the birth of timepieces”.
Furthermore, for the whole duration of the event, visitors will have access to a magnificent exhibition: “Horology, A Child of Astronomy”. This tells the history of the parallel paths of astronomy and time keeping and measuring.
Exhibiting watchmakers : A. Lange & Söhne, Audemars Piguet, Baume & Mercier, Cartier, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Montblanc, Officine Panerai, Piaget, Richard Mille, Roger Dubuis, Vacheron Constantin, Van Cleef & Arpels.
