Prestige Hong Kong - - AGENDA | WATCHES -

Os­car-win­ning ac­tress Ni­cole Kid­man vis­ited the Rus­sian for­mer cap­i­tal, St Peters­burg, in late Au­gust, where she was guest of hon­our at the open­ing of Omega’s Her Time ex­hi­bi­tion at the famed Mar­ble Palace. The ex­hi­bi­tion, which is cur­rently on tour af­ter pre­vi­ous stops in Mi­lan, Paris, Shang­hai and Syd­ney, chron­i­cles the evo­lu­tion of Omega’s time­pieces for women, from the Lépine pen­dant of 1906 and its later adap­ta­tion into a wrist­watch, through “se­cret” jew­ellery watches to the cur­rent De Ville Tré­sor and Sea­mas­ter Aqua Terra. The pieces on show, said Kid­man, “are in­cred­i­bly beau­ti­ful – works of art, in fact. But when you con­sider how Omega set out to make pre­ci­sion watches for women, not just el­e­gant dec­o­ra­tions, well, that’s also about hav­ing re­spect for women, and for me that’s what makes the watches even more ex­cep­tional.”
