Exciting finds from Blue Salon |DJWE 2016

The Doha Jewellery and Watches Exhibition is an annual event that brings to Doha the best of fine jewelry and watches from around the world. Although, I have always tried to make it there, this year was the first time I actually made it to the Exhibition.

One discovery journey of fabulous designers I had was at the Blue Salon stand. They had a great collection of watches – one of them had me looking at it, and spending a good 20 minutes observing its beauty.

Jacob & Co was the first stop I made at Blue Salon, and they were the creators or more so the curators of the stunning watch which had me in awe for quite a well.

The Astronomia Gravitational Triple Axis Tourbillon – an exclusive Jacob & Co creation with 42 Baguette Diamonds – a limited edition creation with just 18 pieces in total – I am sure was the best watch I had discovered, and tried at this exhibition. Inside, the watch is a 1 carat diamond which is in Jacob cut with 288 facets. To make a cut like that, a raw diamond of approximately 3 carats, and then it had to be cut continuously, and ultimately by the time you end up with 288 facets, the diamond turns out to be 1 carat.

Gravitational Orbital Tourbillon cage rotates on 3 axes:

1st Axe: Tourbillon Cage Rotating in 60 seconds

2nd Axe: in 5 minutes

3rd Axe: Central Axe in 20 minutes

The box that has been made to place this watch is a presentation by itself. A watch so grand deserves a dramatic reveal like that I believe.

The beauty of the watch cannot be captured in pictures. Here’s my attempt at finding the best preview of the watch online.

Jacob&Co was said to be celebrating its 30 years anniversary this year. Jacon Arabo the founder of the brand was born in Uzbekistan, and has been living in New York where he established his company.

Another stunning piece at the Jacob & Co was aย glove from the Rare Touch collection –ย 18K ย gold glove set with 546 brilliant cut diamonds.

I love collectibles – not really to collect them, well I don’t mind collecting them. ๐Ÿ˜€

I love them for the stories, the inspirations, the creative process behind them.

Another beautiful creation I tried was the ringย bracelet from the Celeste Collection. The Celeste Collection combines the elements of the celestial bodies, capturing the incandescence of the sun and the luminosity of the moon in a single enchanting and dynamic design. Delicate strands of radiant diamonds capture the ethereal quality of floating through the cosmos.

Jacobโ€™s Web mirrors the sensation of sparkling raindrops falling upon a spider web. This spectacular full finger ring evokes a diamond dusted web intricately woven of black rhodium plated gold with two hinges crafted to fit and move comfortably.

Jacob & Co had a lot to show, and a lot to present. I did not realize how much time I had spent there as I was captivated by the sparkle of the gems there!

It is really interesting to find how many options one has in this life. We stopped at Breitling – A brand that offers timekeeping instruments for professionals. Most of their watches are for professionals Most of their watches are attributed to aeroplanes and pilots. They have something called the Emergency Watch which has a system which will give out an SOS signal with GPS location and transmits these signals for upto 24 hours. Something that a pilot in need would find really handy when the systems in aircrafts fail.

DJWE-blue-salon-watch-zenith-elprimero

Another brand we discovered at the Blue Salon standย was Zenith watches known for their El Primero setting.ย Over 40 years on, El Primero is still the most precise series-made chronograph, the only one capable of measuring short times to the nearest tenth of a second. It is also one of the most titled, having been honoured by numerous distinctions.

The evolved versions of this legendary caliber are now housed within a complete collection bearing its name. It takes an average of nine months to make a single watch in the El Primero Collection. A series of 2,500 operations are performed by 300 expert pairs of hands and 18 different metals are used. So much hard work, and detailing just in a watch – who would have thought?

Oh Doha! When you are this pretty๐Ÿ˜, you take my breath away!
What's the one place that you could go and never get bored of its view ?
.
.
The Corniche is one such place for me. It blends the country's heritage with modernization in the most unique way, the love for this country is not enough to put in words for me.

How do sunsets inspire you? 
There is never a sunset which cannot be appreciated.  There is always something in a person that you can appreciate. 
I cannot tell you how beautiful winter sunsets in Doha are ๐ŸŒ…๐ŸŒ…๐ŸŒ…๐ŸŒ…๐ŸŒ…๐ŸŒ…๐ŸŒ…๐ŸŒ…๐ŸŒ…๐ŸŒ…
The day I went to Banana Island was one of the only days last week where there wasn't a single cloud in the sky.โ˜๏ธโ˜๏ธโ˜๏ธโ˜๏ธโ˜๏ธ
The sunset was so beautiful for once I thought I was elsewhere but this was here in Qatar ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ @bananaislandresort

Also, I really wanted to share this message that came my way today "I asked an Elderly Gentleman - *Tell Me Sir, in Which Field could I Make a Great Career?* He said with a smile - *Be a Good Human Being, there is a Huge Opportunity in this Area and with Very Little Competition!"* .

What is your fave flower? And why?
.
.
"Be like a flower which perfumes the hand that crushes it"
I remember back in my school day when I was around 8 or 9 years old. I looked up to everyone possible with respect and admiration. It was around then that our school principal was leaving the school. ๐ŸŽ’ Everyone was trying to get 'his autograph' in pretty papers and I didnt have any so I just gave my book and this was the line he wrote for me. I was pretty impressed with it then and am still pretty impressed with the line. "It's something I would keep wanting to tell myself every now and then!" ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ
This flower though am not sure of what its name is, I took a pic of it when I was exploring Bodimettu with @thesholacrown
๐ŸŽ“
It was such a privelege to have been the first guest of the hotel. 
Having worked with hotels in the Middle East, and also having been approached by the Philippines, this was a first for me outside the region that I could make it to. ๐ŸŒ
A place so beautiful, nature untouched, and so much to learn and see. ๐Ÿš
Those are the kind of places I'd want to be exploring time and time again
๐Ÿ“
Planning a visit to India post April, make sure to add in The Shola Crown into your schedule. .

Finally went and checked out the @magical_festival_village at @kataraqatar and here's what I think about it
.
.
.
For a fair, the food prices in stalls could go a tad bit lower.๐Ÿด
There are some outlet stores where you can get some amazing clothes , footwear for amazing prices๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘“
It's a great place to go as a family ๐Ÿ‘ช
And, there are a lot of instagrammable spots๐Ÿ“ท
.
.
.
Have you been there? If so what do you think?
Do you love checking out local fairs? Have you found great bargains at fairs?

Do you enjoy attending cooking lessons wherever you go? ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ
.
.
.
It teaches you a lot about a place. There's so much just a meal can teach you. .
.
.
.
A moment from the cooking lesson @dohagymkhana where the chef demonstrated how to make Madras Fish Curry. It was finger lickin' good!
Do you want the recipe? If so let me know
