Watch event proves to be major hit for attending fan

First published: 21-01-2010

An attendee at this week's 20th Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva is having a whale of a time looking at all the new watches, so it seems.

Jacquie Myburgh Chemaly of the South African Times has taken time out to check out the latest styles available, noting the biggest trends that will come up in the coming months but also having extreme difficulty in doing it.

That's because the watch lover has found it nigh-on impossible to master the art of typing on a French keyboard, which she branded "crazy".

She continued: "The watches, on the other hand, are magnificent.

"In a nutshell: bigger is best, pink and gold with a brown leather strap is huge - and when everyone gets over the big thing, then we are all going to be looking for the thinnest watch possible."

Watch makers displaying their wares at the event include Cartier, Dunhill, Piaget, Van Cleef & Arpels and Richard Mille.
