If you're a serious watch collector, or like me, a watch enthusiast who loves to check out the various line-ups of luxury watches, then be sure to look out for this upcoming annual horology event of the year. A Journey Through Time VII, Asia’s grandest luxury watch and jewellery showcase, with the continuous support of Tourism Malaysia for the past 6 years, will run for its seventh consecutive year from the 22nd of November until the 29th of November, 2013. This post shall serve to as a pre-event writeup to share on what is to be expected.

This year, the luxury event will delve deeper into how these magnificent pieces are created and, in addition to the over 100 of the finest luxury watch and jewellery brands unveiling their finest masterpieces, A Journey Through Time is proud to present Swiss Auctions, who will be holding an auction of more than 200 of the rarest timepieces in the world, alongside demonstrations from skilled and world-famous Swiss watchmakers. Starhill Gallery will also be providing daily guided tours of the Adorn and Indulge floors.

A Journey Through Time VII will be the platform for the unveiling of the latest and most innovative collections of pristine watches and glamorous jewellery pieces. A Journey Through Time VII will showcase over RM1 billion worth of first-in-market editions of luxurious watches and jewellery, including, for a limited period of time, Mouawad’s US$55 million L'Incomparable 637ct diamond necklace, which is a record-breaking necklace designed around the yellow Incomparable Diamond that is certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most valuable neckpiece in the world.

The highly anticipated Watch of the Year Awards Ceremony will be held on the final night. Prestigious awards such as Tourism Malaysia’s Most Revered and Complication in Movement will be hotly contested while there will be the addition of a brand new award category; Starhill Gallery’s Timeless Jewellery Award, highlighting the most exquisite jewellery piece of the year. The winners will be determined by an esteemed panel of judges which includes watch experts Tan Sri Dato’ (Dr) Francis Yeoh and Dr. Bernard Cheong and several other highly respected timepiece and jewellery experts.

Available for the first time during A Journey Through Time will be a daily guided tour from the Watch Concierge. Operating three times a day at 11am, 2pm and 4pm, knowledgeable internal watch experts will bring enthusiasts to view collections and selected pieces from over 120 brands found on the Adorn floor and Indulge floor. Now this is what I'm looking out for, someone to explain and guide us newbies.
