As part of Conversations with Christie’s (a global event partnership with JW Marriott Hotels), a showcase of rare timepieces will be previewed on 18 November in Bar Q88’s Riedel Room,  at the JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong. Like previous Conversations with Christie’s events, the preview will coincide with a series of exclusive events, online articles and videos for watch collectors and enthusiasts. Hong Kong’s edition of Conversations will be the only one of its kind in Asia.

The 40 pieces, from such watchmakers as Patek Philippe and Rolex, demonstrate the technical innovation, workmanship and timeless design of the craft’s finest. Highlights of the exhibition include a 18k white gold world time wristwatch made for Patek Phillippe’s 175th anniversary in 2014, as well as a 18k white gold and diamond-set Rolex Daytona with a rainbow, multi-gem bezel.
