For the first time at MASTERS EXPO, the pre-owned brand GASSAN launched last year. The great attention to vintage and pre-owned watches also emphasizes the timeless beauty of these special time instruments. This is reflected in their value stability - an objective observation - and also in their aesthetic imperishability - a more subjective observation although, for example, an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak evades any subjective taste discussion; that watch is indisputably an untouchable icon. Incidentally, GASSAN has more such timeless icons in its pre-owned collection, such as the Rolex Explorer or the IWC Portofino. All these watches are inspected, authentic and come with a one-year warranty. GASSAN pre-owned also offers the possibility of trading in and/or selling your current watch.
TROPHY BY GASSAN
Heritage and craftsmanship meets luxury designs. TROPHY BY GASSAN is a new and high-end brand that creates customized jewelry.

Based on a famous 1978 design, the PRX 40 205 is an indispensable timepiece with an integrated case and strap. Its remarkably slim, timeless and solid design makes it an ideal watch for those with a passion for design and an eye for ingenuity. In style with the PRX 40 205, Tissot will have a SILENT DISCO at the booth on Saturday evening with a fully lit '70s disco floor, disco ball, live DJ.
The name Black Bay Fifty-Eight 18K and Black Bay Fifty-Eight 925 is of course a reference to the noble metal of the case, but also to 1958, the year in which the first TUDOR (dash away) diver's watch waterproof to 200 meters, reference 7924 or "Big Crown," was introduced. Among other aesthetic nods to this historic watch, this model offers a 39 mm diameter case in keeping with the characteristic proportions around the 1950s. They are the first TUDOR dive watches to be made of 18-karat yellow gold or silver and is offered with an open back cover.
Precise timekeeping, a snug fit and authentic style are key components of a great timepiece, whether you see it on screen or wear it on your wrist. The Hamilton Khaki Field Titanium Automatic Far Cry® 6 Limited Edition is made for action: both in-game and in real life.
Driven by the desire to create diamond fashion jewelry of unwavering beauty, Valérie Messika created her own jewelry house in 2005. In her work, she reinvents the richly symbolic and meaningful stone into a desirable and disruptive object that gives confidence to all who wear it. Valerie constantly innovates to realize this vision by creating new designs and new techniques. In her hands, the diamond comes alive: it moves, dances, has fun and most importantly, it never gets bored. Three diamonds, one golden cage, 360 possibilities.
