Hi all,

I went to Watches&Wonders today and took some photos of some nice timepieces so I thought I would create a photo thread for it. If any of you are also in Hong Kong this week for the event, I would love to see your photos as well. I hope you will enjoy my photos. More will come as I plan on going back to the event this next few days.


The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Skeleton Flying Tourbillon with gem-set rubber bezel ref. RDDBEX0480 with the Hand-wound RD505SQ caliber movement. Limited to 88 pieces.

The beautiful IWC Portugieser Annual Calendar ref. 503502 (Midnight Blue). It features the automatic winding IWC-manufactured 52850 calibre movement, 7-day power reserve and a 44mm case. Price tag for this watch is $24,100.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Joaillerie Rivière 101 Reine in 18-carat white gold with 110 diamonds - 11 carats. It features the mechanical manually-wound movement Jaeger-LeCoultre caliber 101/4, one of the smallest mechanical movement in the world.

Here you have the notorious Richard Mille Tourbillon RM 27-02 Rafael Nadal. The case is made of NTPT carbon and TPT quartz, a material co-developed by Richard Mille and North Thin Ply Technology. The movement is a manually wound caliber with one-minute tourbillon weighing 3.35g! The whole watch weighs only 18 grams with rubber strap, the reason why Nadal agreed to wear it during his tennis matches. Limited to 50 pieces with a price tag of 777,000 euros (with taxes).

That's all for now!

Thank you again for this. Question: how would you describe the hue of the ALS honey gold? The pic is a little too dark and I am wondering how different it is from regular yellow gold (I obviously know it is lighter than yg, but was wondering how much).

It's hard to describe. It's a very subtle color, more like an orange type of color. It's really beautiful when you see it.
You directly see the difference with yellow gold but it's not a striking one.
