The launch of the Alain Silberstein 2008 collection!

Mar 18, 2008,03:15 AM

Alain Silberstein will not be exhibiting at Baselworld this year, instead he is embarking on a world tour to showcase his 2008 collection. Yesterday, a small group gathered at Garibaldi Italian Restaurant to see the 2008 collection while enjoying a wonderful lunch.
We were privileged to be one of the first in the world to see the new watches and now all Purists can similar enjoy the new range of watches.
