The 2nd Edition of Top Marques Watches & Jewellery drew to a close last weekend to rave reviews for its’ high quality exhibitors and sublime setting at the Hotel Hermitage Monte-Carlo.
The ‘Pop-up’ watch and jewellery show featuring exclusive brands such as Greubel Forsey, Franck Muller, Backes & Strauss, Rebellion Timepieces, DeWitt and Urwerk took place in the hotel’s magnificent Salle Belle Epoque last week.
Monaco’s only exhibition dedicated to exclusive watches and bespoke jewellery was organised by the team behind the Principality’s premier supercar show. The event, which also featured a number of exceptional jewellers such as Elena Sivoldaeva, Design for Desire and Jasré was inaugurated by H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco last Thursday.
The show attracted a steady flow of visitors throughout the three days, with a considerable number of sales understood to have been made.
A notable amount of money was also raised for the Monegasque association Monaco Disease Power during the event. Many of the donations were made at a Charity Tombola at the Top Marques Watches & Jewellery’s Opening Cocktail, sponsored by designer Elena Sivoldaeva, who offered a bespoke diamond brooch as first prize. Other prizes included a watch donated by Rebellion Timepieces and an original work of art by artist Robert Combas.
Manoj Bairstow, managing director of Top Marques Monaco, said : "We were delighted with the public’s response to the second edition of our watches and jewellery show, and were even more pleased to hear that the majority of exhibitors made sales, which is, after all the aim of the event.
"More than half of the participants have confirmed they will be appearing at Top Marques Monaco in April. We are thrilled by this as we feel it is a good indicator of the show's success and of all our events.
“And it goes without saying that we are over the moon that so many people made donations to Monaco Disease Power, an association which does such wonderful work with families with children with disabilities.”
