The Maybach showroom in Repulse Bay was the place to be last Thursday night, when jewellers Harry Winston presented their new range of watches to Hong Kong's movers and shakers.

A Maybach limousine set a swish tone to the evening as Harry Winston staff around the showroom explained how their company's sparkly tickers were assembled.

Quite a few guests turned out in Harry Winston jewellery, and the word is that Academy Award-winning actress Mira Sorvino, New Zealand model Kylie Bax and Hong Kong's Mira Yeh had an extra spring in their step, having borrowed diamond, sapphire and ruby necklace and earring ensembles for the event.

Sorvino took to the stage over dinner to welcome everyone in Putonghua, and a jazz musician entertained a crowd that included Gigi Fu Ming-hin, Teresa Cheung Siu-wai, Reyna Harilela and Shirley Hiranand.
