Luxury of Independents Tour 2008  0 Comments


Over the weekend, three highly respected independent
watchmakers was in town to meet up with fans, collectors and
potential clients on the invitation of The Hour Glass. Its
their regular tour of the region that includes Singapore,
Malaysia and Bangkok. On their first stop, over a hundred
guests were treated to a great dinner at the Garibaldi's.
There the lastest offerings from Kari Voutilainen, Roger
Smith and Vianney Halter were also featured.

During the evening where all the watchmakers were busy
with questions from collectors, I managed to find a few
moments of their time to photograph portraits of two of the
watchmakers - Vianney and Roger - as well as
images to create the cover shots above.

It was a great disappointment for me to miss Kari
but I am sure I will get another chance in the near future.

For a comprehensive photo report of the evening,
check out THIS REPORT by my friend, Raphmeister.

The last image here is a family portrait of Vianney with his beautiful daughter Victoire Halter.
