THE NEW PARTY IN TOWN

GQ (Australia) - - WATCH -

As a GQ Watch reader, you’ll be fa­mil­iar with our an­tic­i­pa­tion of the new re­leases from two great watch fairs – the Salon In­ter­na­tional de la Haute Hor­logerie (SIHH) in Geneva and Basel­world. For the past three years, a third con­tender has come to promi­nence in the form of Watches & Won­ders, held in Oc­to­ber in Asia, to cap­i­talise on the ram­pant growth of the re­gion’s lux­ury in­dus­try. Or­gan­ised by the Fon­da­tion de la Haute Hor­logerie, Watches & Won­ders pro­vides a plat­form for a dozen brands to launch nov­el­ties and col­lec­tions (and cre­ate a whole new batch of items for GQ Watch fol­low­ers to add to their wish lists). Last year’s event was held in Hong Kong, with GQ ed­i­tor in chief, Nick Smith, given an ex­clu­sive in­vi­ta­tion to in­spect the wares. Here, he picks his ‘10 of the best’ and iden­ti­fes spe­cial time­pieces to look out for, or lust af­ter, see­ing as some cost the equiv­a­lent of a small apart­ment.
