A Journey Through Time VII : Maitres du Temps' Launch Gala Night

Me in Dorothy Perkins Electric Blue Satin Dress

Two weeks ago thanks to my friend Choulyin, I had the privilege to attend Maitres du Temps Launch of the Chapter One Transparence Gala Dinner at Shook, Starhill Gallery. I was the first few people in Malaysia (or World) to see beautiful and limited edition luxury timepieces from Maitres du Temps. 

A little background about Maitres du Temps, it' a Swiss watch company. Founded in 2005 by Steven Holtzman, the brand is based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. MaĆ®tres du Temps originated in a determination to transform a dream into reality—a dream ofbringing together contemporary watch making’s greatest creative geniuses in unique collaborations.  It's vision is to inspire the creation of timepieces that will synthesize the traditional crafts of haute horlogerie with the artistry of today’s foremost horological visionaries.Each master watchmaker brings to the table his own ideas, his own style, and his own approach, and by providing the opportunity for them to work together, Maitres du Temps harnesses and maximizes their incredible talents. 

“Chapter One Transparence offers a glimpse into the world of the master watchmaker. The sapphire dial reveals the often concealed inner workings of the timepiece and its high level of craftsmanship. Looking into the movement—the soul of the watch—gives one an appreciation of how the watch was created, the human hands that touched it, the ingenuity that formed it,” says Founder Steven Holtzman.

The Chapter One collection is an enduring beacon of ingenuity and architectural form. As sublime as it is complex, the original tonneau case put the industry on notice to a new standard of excellence. Followed by a creative interpretation of the classic round case, Chapter One Round demonstrated the collection’s versatility. Now, with the advent of Chapter One Transparence, in both tonneau and round cases—the technical prowess of the collection is proudly revealed for all to see.

Mr. Steven Holtzman, Founder (L) and Mr, Christophe Viguerie, CEO (R) opening the case to reveal the Chapter One Transparence.

Chapter One Round Transparence comes in red gold with a transparent sapphire crystal dial Laser-etched sapphire dial revealing a manual-wind mechanical movement with hand-beveled cut-out bridges and a precious metal finish chronograph bridge, one-minute tourbillon, mono-pusher chronograph, retrograde date indicator, retrograde GMT indicator, day of the week indication on roller, patented precise moon phase indication on roller. And this is priced at RM1.9 Million and only have 11 pieces in the world.

Chapter One Tonneau Transparence in titanium (5th grade) and white gold was specially made for Starhill Gallery and A Journey Through Time VII. It is priced at RM1.8 million and this is the only piece in the world!

Guests can't stop admiring the Chapter One Transparence

While waiting to take a glance of the  Chapter One Transparence timepieces, we are served with fine food & entertained by music. 

I love Tre-belle opera singing performance, they are so good!

 They came all the way from New Zealand just to entertain us that night, we are so lucky!

Some food that were served to us that night

 Our table is so lucky that night because Mr, Christophe Viguerie CEO of Maitres du Temps came and sat on our table. He is humble and friendly!

 Just before I left, I met Mr. Steven Holtzman (founder of Maitres du Temps) and his wife and they happily pose for my camera.

His wife is wearing Chapter 2 Diamond

I went google for this and found out that this Maitres Du Temps Chapter 2 Diamond is embellished with 205 white diamonds! Not only that, it is housed in an 18K gold casing. I love rose gold colour and been looking for a watch in rose gold colour and definitely I could not afford this yet... lol!   

Currently Maitres Du Temps boutique is located in UG (Adorn Floor) Starhill Gallery, Kuala Lumpur.

I say YES! Yes to Diamond...

Hey girls might be some of you have already say Congratulation ! But hey I haven't got the ring YET ! This freaking big ring and expensive RM154, 615 (After discount of RM1,746!) And I was lemming for it after I wore it once after the Le Lumiere Diamond's workshop in the Gardens !!!

So I put the title I say Yes , yes to diamond, please buy me please !!!!!

I show this to my boyfriend this... when he saw the price @_@
(Sorry for being naughty with title !!! but this keep you reading right ?)

And at the workshop for a new beginner (newbie) like me, this is really useful as its give a general knowledge of what diamond is all about from what is diamond to how to choose the right diamond and not to be cheated by your boyfriend!!!! A friend with me who went there was so pro that the speaker cant even answer some of her questions! Haha ! Anyway we are hoping to get some diamond dust as door gift but was given something else .....

Anyway here are the slides for your knowledge enhancement !



And why is diamond so expensive simply because it is very rare to get.. and the Kimberlite Eruption happned 25 millions years ago !

Yes , only if the momentum is very high..


Yes, under very high temperature.... perhaps on the edges only

This is so's a 45.52 carats diamond weight at 9.10 g , currently being housed in the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington, D.C

Diamond Criteria Chart which let you choose what you want according to your budget

So I have tried this 2nd big diamond ring in the store to try...because earlier on I was trying to look at the serial number at the girdle, at first the SA brought me 0.3 carat diamond ring which I tried very very hard to see the num , but I can't even see where is it though most of the people can see it! So he took out 0.5, 0.7, 0.1 carat for me to look at the serial number... and until he brought this 1.5 carat diamond ring, oh now I can now see the embodied serial number on the ring through the microscope!!

If not mistaken the biggest ring in the store worth RM888,888 ... !!!!

Looked as big as my eye ball !!

I want this !!

But if think again, I would rather go for world tour for the RM154k !

Sigh... can I have both then ?

What about you - diamond or travel ?
