For many, a watch is just a time-telling accessory, but few enlightened ones wear a watch that reflects their lifestyle and speaks volumes about their personality. With an array of options laid out by the world’s best luxury brands in horology, it is awfully baffling to pick the most suitable timepiece that will make an effortless statement. Touted to be the BaselWorld show of India, The Circle of Time debuted as an international Haute horology show in Mumbai (Bombay) on 8th October 2012. This leading event for the watch and jewelry industry bought out the finest collection of jewelry watches, complications, and novelties from five of the world’s leading luxury brands. Hosted by the House of Rose, the exposition will run till 14th October 2012, giving enough time for keen buyers, high-networking individuals, and watch connoisseurs connect with top brands. For the first time, the Circle of Time bought Bulgari, Hublot, Jaeger-Le Coultre, Parmigiani, and Ulysse Nardin under one roof to showcase their latest finest and limited edition creations for Indian watch enthusiasts.

Offering great business and networking opportunities, this event targets the top 15,000 families of Mumbai, which comprise the ardent patrons of luxury wristwatches and the influencers of society.
