Luxury Watch Highlights
As one grows older, one starts to discover that the beautiful moments are often fleeting. The transience of time has brought forth one’s gratitude for life, and most importantly, the time one gets to spend with their loved ones. It’s only apt that this year’s event is held under the theme of “Precious Time Together”, marking the precious moments spent with inventions from over 180 world-class watchmakers. From brands such Franck Muller, Breitling and Longines, this year’s vast selection of watches is dazzling. Hence, we’ve selected some of the best highlights that discerning watch lovers would undoubtedly appreciate.
Franck Muller Double Mystery
The Double Mystery is an exquisite timepiece featuring an 18k white gold case with precious gems of sapphire, ruby, tsavorite and diamond baguette-cut gems. The highlight lies in its “mystery” function, allowing time to be displayed despite having neither numbers nor hands achieved through two slow-rotating discs—the inner disc marking time while the outer disc showing the minute. Available in classic red and blue alligator leather straps.
Breitling Super Chronomat 44 1461 Days
One of Breitling’s boldest Chronomat to date, the Super Chronomat treads the fine balance between sturdy and stylish. First launched in 1983, the original Chronomat was inspired by Frecce Tricolori and was created for the Italian Air Force’s aerobatic fleet. For such reason, the Chronomat has been designed as an all-purpose sports watch that can carry its wearer from day to evening events without missing a beat. In addition, the watch comes with rider tabs to protect the sapphire crystal and can be worn for both countdowns and countups thanks to its interchangeable tabs at 3 and 9 o’clock.
The case measures 44 millimetres with a stainless-steel bezel fitted with a ceramic insert, which makes it the first to appear on a Chronomat. The straps are available in two choices: the iconic metal strap with a butterfly clasp and a new Rouleaux-inspired rubber strap.
Bovet The Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two
One of the 39 pieces available worldwide and the only one in Thailand, Bovet’s Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two features a patented double face tourbillon with a patented spherical winding system and tridimensional toothing with multiple gearing. The big date and a 10-day power reserve that uses a single barrel make the Virtuoso III one of the most incredible of its kind. Featuring an inclined crystal aperture on the middle axis, the model blends Bovet’s two iconic cases, the Fleurier and the Dimier, in a chamfered and polished creation.
The tourbillon cage bridge is created with titanium, effectively reducing the cage’s weight while preventing magnetic charges. Meanwhile, the dial is made of blue aventurine glass, which accentuates the watch’s functionality and the legibility of its complications. This luxury watch comes in a Fleurier bow case and fitted with a date correction function that can be performed simply by pressing the crown without removing the timepiece itself.
Grand Seiko SLGH007
The only piece in Thailand and one of the 140 around the world, Grand Seiko’s SLGH007 was produced in honour of Seiko’s 140th anniversary.

TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph ‘Dato45’

Longines Legend Diver Watch
One of the brand’s iconic piece from Longines’ “Immersion in Heritage” project is Longines Legend Diver Watch, which was first launched in 2007. The symbolic timepiece that marks Longines’ heritage is now available in a new version, seeing two new colours of brown and navy with matching straps joining the collection.
