The competition has attracted 206 submissions under the theme “Future Luxury” for the student group and “Luxury Automobile” for the open group. Winners will be announced in August, with the winning pieces on display at the fair.
Other fair activities include watch parades, seminars, buyer forums and networking events. Representatives of major international watch associations will discuss challenges and opportunities in watch manufacturing at the Hong Kong International Watch Forum (September 5), while speakers from watch brands and the wearable technology sector will attend the Asian Watch Conference (September 6).
Members of the public can attend the final day of Salon de TE on September 9, which includes lucky draws plus selected product sales.
