Treasured watches donated by celebrities such as, Khemanit Jamikorn Pakorn Lum, Mario Maurer and Suthasinee Buddhinan Rodrigues are being auctioned at the event with part of the proceeds donated to the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s ‘Together We Can” fund.
Siam Paragon has joined its business alliances including property developer Major Development and KBANK, together with more than 200 watchmakers and importers to create ‘Siam Paragon Watch Expo 2010’ that hosts the first presentation in Thailand of the latest watch collections following the Basel World and SIHH. The watches are categorised in three concepts – Masterpiece, Luxury and Trend.
The top watches of this year include FRANCK MULLER’s Revolution 3 NR, a highly complicated watch containing tri-axial tourbillon arranged as follows: the balance wheel and escapement rotating about its axis are contained in Cage A; Cage A is in turn mounted inside Cage B, so that it can turn about another axis; and Cage B is mounted inside Cage C, which turns about an axis fixed in relation to the timepiece.
Another outstanding piece is PIAGET’s Limelight Paradise Tropical Sea Inspiration – Cuff watch created with an inspiration from the fascinating colours of the ocean. Inspired by the hues and shades of southern tropical seas, atolls or lagoons, the luxuriously glamorous timepiece has diamond-set 18K white gold case, Piaget 157P Quartz movement with hour and minute display, 466 diamonds with total weight 9.2 carat.
The first and most striking feature of RICHARD MILLE’s RM019 Celtic Knot is the diamond studded celtic knot that traverses and weaves itself over and through various parts of the movement, connecting and joining the winding barrel, power reserve indicator and tourbillon in an endless cycle. The hour and minute hands are striking in their asymmetrical placement within the flowing lines of this celtic knot pattern.
JACOB & CO.’s Sapphire Royal, made from 18k white gold weight 181.85 gr. 163 pieces 21.68 ct sapphires on bezel, 180 pieces 17.45 ct on dial, 30 pieces on buckle and 1 piece.18ct crown. Limited to only 18 pieces.
