Seventeen luxury brands, including famed French label Boucheron, helped Top Marques Watches & Jewellery make a glittering debut on September 24. The two-day display of baubles and timepieces was organized by the team behind supercar show Top Marques Monaco – and took guests’ breath away much like its predecessor. Held at Monaco’s five-star Hotel Hermitage, the inaugural affair featured an all-star line-up that also included Patek Philippe, Montblanc, and Mikimoto. For Boucheron’s part, attendees were treated to glimpses of the design house’s latest watches and jewels, including its Bleu de Jodhpur collection inspired by India. But Top Marques Watches & Jewellery wasn’t solely an exhibit. Pieces from the various brands were also available for sale until the end of the event on September 25.
