On September 25, 2013, Asia’s first Haute Horlogerie show will debut at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Equal parts exhibition and networking event, “Watches and Wonders” will showcase 13 foremost watch authorities, including Cartier, IWC, and Piaget. Maisons such as Van Cleef & Arpels will introduce new timepieces while others will congregate collectors around watchmaking demonstrations. In one scheduled event indicative of the four-day event’s all-encompassing coverage, Montblanc will share its brand’s history through a program combining film, music, and live performance.
