A while back I went to a watch exhibition to get poisoned with the purchase of more things I really can’t afford! You can find some more info about it here.
Conquest of Time was held at KL Convention Center by Sincere (The watch specialist?!).
First up we had a talk by some dude from Switzerland about some really freaking expensive watches and how they are made (specialist stuff like tourbillon, chronograph and perpetual calendar…These are terms watch geeks are intimate with).
We also got to see how they painstakingly make those tiny little parts with little sticks of wood, the wood has various grades of hardness to polish the tiny parts that make up the movement in the watch.
There were also master classes so you could learn all about how watches were assembled, hands on!
The GP (Girard Perregaux) watches are extremely fine!
But still, most of all..I really LOVE Breitling watches and always have (I just don’t love the price tag!)
Yes this one IS 21,120RM..
The Bentley special edition Breitling is just LOVELY.
Some of the others that I found nice:
The Legendary Jaeger GyroTourbillon
Lange and Sohne also have some beautiful pieces.
Zenith goes more for funky…and has some really ‘cute’ ladies models.
IWC Perpetual Calendar.
Hand painted tiger enamel from Corum.
The exhibition was held in KL Convention Center, it was pretty busy and very nicely set out. If it’s in town again, I’d definitely recommend dropping by.
KLCC to say goodbye.
