This last weekend, we had the chance to finally visit Bahrain after almost 2 years of lock down and travel restrictions due to COVID19; and what better way to celebrate the occasion other than hosting av very private dinner with Piaget and Bahrain Jewelry Center.

It was the first time for me to host such a private collector dinner in Bahrain with top Piaget clients and members of our Arab WAtch Club.  We were staying at the Four Seasons, really one of the nicest hotels in Bahrain and among the Four Seasons chain globally.

The event took place at Cut in the cigar lounge, where we privatised the area so our guests feel more comfortable and cozy while having the dinner and also enjoying a nice cigar with some watches here and there!!

I was wearing on that night one of my favourite watches in the line up of Altiplanos. the 38mm Altiplano skeleton rose gold – an ultimate classiness on the wrist and a gentlemen’s choice especially when suited.

The guests started coming in and it was such a delight to reconnect to so many collectors that I have been in touch with mostly on Social Media without having the chance to meet in person.  One of the most enjoyable aspect of those evenings is to learn more about each collectors’ path in watch collecting and their theories and personal tastes.

From the AP savy collectors to the Patek and Rolex aficionados, we ended up all on a Piaget table discussing their latest Polo Skeleton that took our breath away ; specially the one with the diamond bezel – this is definitely my ultimate Polo skeleton choice.

As the cigars started to light up and the evening diverted into exploring more of the Piaget offering from the Polo range to the Emperador very unique designs; many collectors have set their eyes on one or two pieces – interestingly enough, the variety of opinions and tastes almost covered all the breadth of models we have been looking at throughout the night.

For some reason lately, all the watches that are catching my attention from Piaget have a diamond bezel – whether the Polo , the Altiplano or the Emperador lines. There is something extremely attractive on a men’s watch with a well crafted diamond bezel. In excess, it will look tacky , but in the right setting and the proper alignment, it is actually very tasteful.

After several hours of chatting , eating and smoking; we had to conclude a wonderful evening with very enthusiastic collectors from Bahrain with a very big Thank You to the Piaget and the Bahrain Jewelry Center teams who made this event happen
