Amidst the protests in Hong Kong, there was nonetheless a great turnout at the event. Not only did Japan participate for the first time, visitors also saw exclusive collections launched during the 3-day event.
While journalists from all over Asia, especially those in Hong Kong, have been busily reporting on the demonstrations, all of them made it to Watches & Wonders, as did many luxury retailers, collectors, enthusiasts and industry experts. Limited edition and collector-worthy pieces were the highlight this year, as the 13 participating brands delighted Asian visitors with unique creations.
Like the event's first edition last year, Watches & Wonders 2014 offer a precious opportunity to get up close and personal with the maisons, and what better way to experience watchmaking than in the venue's very own haute horlogerie workshop? Participants got a taste of the history, passion, care and above all, time, that went into manufacturing every watch, through interesting lessons and hands-on sessions.
