LVMH Announces First Watch Exhibition in Dubai

Watch enthusiasts, get ready to welcome a new watch exhibition in Dubai! January 2020 will be the month that will witness the first LVMH Swiss Watch Manufactures exhibition in the city as announced each of Stéphane Bianchi – President of the LVMH Watch Division, and Jean-Christophe Babin – President of the Bvlgari Group.

Set to take place in Dubai Bvlgari Hotel this coming January, the event will include a list of 4 watch brands – which are Bvlgari, Tag Heuer, Zenith and Hublot – and will introduce you to each brand’s watchmaking news for 2020.

“In between Geneva in January and Basel in March, we have had in the recent years two major product presentations in the first quarter. This early discovery of our strategies, news and novelties has allowed our media and retail partners to better plan the year ahead and as such we have decided on this set up for 2020 to balance the scheduling of the other events,” stated Jean-Christophe Babin.

On another note, Stéphane Bianchi explains: “We remain very supportive and loyal to Baselworld and the Swiss watchmaking industry. However, it was not possible for us to go 13 months without a global presentation of our products and brands. This additional event further confirms the LVMH commitment to the strategic and profitable watch category.”

If there is one thing we women are sure of, it would definitely be our love for jewelry. And what’s better than exquisite pieces, is the creations that have a trendy twist and allow us to take a walk on the wild side. The pieces we’re talking about are undoubtedly ear cuffs, those creations that got us hooked from the very first sight.

Among all the creations that saw the light this year, ear cuffs stand out and take the lead in proving the jewelry houses’ creativity. From medium to high jewelry, these pieces will certainly never fail in taking your style to new heights and adding the right amount of pizzazz to your look.

Although these ear sparklers hide behind your ear on their way up, their charm lies in the way they reveal their beauty on the upper side or in some cases on the side. And for the jewelers’ way in feeding our need for statement pieces, we’re forever grateful!

Care to join us and check out the pieces we chose for you? Here you go, and you’re welcome!

Packing a statement is a thing now. Not only are women looking for pieces that allow them to stand out from the pack, but men are also after the same thing. As a stylish man yourself, we’re sure you know that watches are one of the ways you can spice up your look. In fact, nothing beats a watch when it comes to adding style to your wrist and embodying your sophisticated taste.

That said, you should be aware that a statement timepiece is not only limited to the complications that it features, as its design is the first thing you see and if you’re using it to add a stylish flair to your look, it becomes a quintessential part of the equation.

Luckily for you, most watchmaking houses understand your need to stand out by releasing timepieces that pack a statement. While H. Moser & Cie chose to fully adorn a white gold case with sparkling white diamonds and set it against a black dial and straps to create a great contrast fit for a man’s wrist, Audemars Piguet boldly embedded an octagonal middle case within a round case. These 2 are nothing but an example of the creativity that watchmakers uncovered this year and the watches we picked for you will tell you more about statement watches.
