On Monday 3rd May, Hour Glass hosted a dinner event to launch the new HM3 Frog Limited Edition (black pvd coating and green rotor) and HM3 Frog Titanium (blue rotor). Seen here for the first time anywhere in the world, the HM3 Frog is the "Gremlin" to the original HM3 "Mogwai" - according to Max Busser. the founder and owner of MB&F brand.

While aesthetically the change seems to be the two cones into the two domes only, Max Busser informed friends and customer that the watch had to be radically re-engineered to deal with the design changes.

Below is the HM3 Frog on wrist modelled by my good friend Prof Massimiliano Landi.

More images of these watches and of the dinner report later.

About a fortnight ago IWC hosted a cocktail for a small gathering of a few collectors of vintage watches at the new ION showroom. There were only 15 guests consisting of the vintage collectors who brought along their collection to share and a few newbie guests to introduce the rarified art of vintage IWC collecting. The brainchild of Mr Eddie Sng who suggested the concept to IWC who then saw how valuable an idea that new collectors can be introduced to both rare vintage as well as the new pieces at the showroom.

My sincerest thanks to all at IWC and their team especially here in Singapore for being so gracious and hospitable. Their continued support for the collectors here will never be forgotten. Special thanks to Eddie for organising it on the collectors behalf!

Will such gatherings be the new standard for the brands? I hope so, as it demonstrates if anything, the strong following of the brand as well as the sophistication of the collectors as well as an opportunity for the not so fortunate to admire and enjoy handling the very rare pieces. Have a glimpse of the event through the slideshow here.
