There was once upon ago, I did not know there were so many luxury watches- and some that even cost more then even a luxury bungalow, then I some how got to know a friend who was a watch enthusiast, and I learn a little about Rolex and Patek Phillippe and so on....It was definitely fascinating and so intriguing...so it will be a wonderful opportunity for me to take A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME this 20th to 27th November 2015....
Anyway, Starhill Gallery, whom almost everyone knows to be Malaysia’s ultimate destination for premium lifestyle, fashion, beauty, art and dining is all set to host the ninth edition of A Journey Through Time - Asia’s premier watch and jewellery showcase.
