I’ll be honest, we didn’t quite know what to expect from Watches & Wonders. Just a few weeks removed from SIHH, the FHH reconvened the press and brands (21 to be exact) in the Miami Design District for a weekend of horological exploration and discovery. Heading to Miami, we knew that regardless of the outcome, we were going to have a memorable time.

For the inaugural US edition of Watches & Wonders, Italian jewelry and watch manufacture Bulgari brought out the Diva Finissima Minute Repeater. Part of the brand’s Divas’ Dream collection and introduced just weeks prior at SIHH 2018. Making its first official US appearance under the bright sunlight of southern Florida, the watch was welcomed by collectors throughout the brand’s Miami Design District boutique. For this occasion, we couldn’t be late since Mr. Guido Terreni would be presenting the watch himself!

The moment we touched down at Miami international, I knew this trip would be different. Over a thousand miles away from our concrete jungle of New York. We were surrounded by resplendent pastel colors and the art deco architecture of Miami. It was hard to anticipate what we were getting ourselves into. Just a few weeks removed from SIHH, Watchonista was headed back to the fold to view some of our favorite pieces from the eponymous show.
