This is the third time the gallery, will be hosting the event. The theme for this years exhibition is Time & the Environment, which pays homage to Nature. In line with this theme, there will be special talk titled 'Time & the Environment Insights' where horological experts and champions of the environment will present a series of topics relating to the environment and the luxury acquisition industry.

The following luxury houses will also be celebrating the opening of their flagship boutiques during the event; Valentino, Sergio Rossi, Kenzo and Carerra y Carrera.
The interesting aspect of this exhibition is that unlike other watch exhibition, this exhibition is neither trade-focused or manufacture-skewed. The exhibition will be retail-focused. Having been to the last 2 exhibition I have to say that it was an interesting experience. Sadly I will not be attending this years exhibition.
