On the occasion of the SIHH in Geneva, premium Swiss wristwatch marque Jaeger-LeCoultre hosted an evening to celebrate their wares, in particular, the relaunch of their Memovox Polaris wristwatches from the late ‘60s that coincidentally is celebrating its 60th anniversary. This special moment was also earmarked by the appearance of new brand ambassador, British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who was also joined by other big name personalities such as Diego Luna, Boran Jing, Joseph Chang, Sunny Wang, and Ellie Bamber. VIPs at the gala dinner also got to experience meals prepared by the youngest three-star Michelin chef Mathieu Pacaud as well as cocktails by Colin Field of Ritz Paris and music by Breakbot.
