We promise we will not say anything. Your most unfortunate late arrival…?
My father keeps telling me, that before the time it’s not the time, after the time it’s not the time anymore, just be one time. So, I was always on time…. At least this time J.

Your most remarkable meeting?
An incredibly smart and talented person of the watch media industry extremely in demand but who managed to make time for a one-on-one dinner!

Your most successful selfie?
Not sure if it was with Anish who had not sleep or Suzanne Wong who couldn’t walk on heels anymore.

The best watch you discovered?
Richard Mille’s RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur with the off-centered tourbillon cage set in a magnolia flower that opens up and close down in 6 seconds every five minutes.

The most surprising one you saw?
The Vibrant Setting on the Cartier Ballon Bleu because of the 123 diamonds set on individual springs on the dial… giving an permanent hearthquake on your wrist.

A piece that struck you?
The Audemars Piguet Diamond Punk with the 8148 diamonds set on geometrical diamond prisms result in a watch/cuff taken from the 70’s with a mix of punk and glamour.
