Kelly Chen Wai-lam, who is happily married with two sons, was perhaps the perfect person to help launch Ernest Borel's latest watch collection, the Romance Series III. After all, the brand's motto is Romance in Heart and it is known for its watches for couples.

But Chen said that since her two sons had been born, romantic moments had become few and far between. "We haven't gone on a movie date for a long time. Even when we watch DVDs at home, our sons get in the way. That's another type of romance, in a way," said Chen, whose wedding photos were on display at the event on Monday.

She said her four-month-old son wasn't affected by the Japanese milk formula scare, as the baby milk they fed him came from the United States. He was so healthy and heavy, she said, that it was sometimes tiring for her to carry him.

Anthony Sandstrom and his wife Jocelyn Luko, who modelled the watches wearing wedding outfits, will probably enjoy their freedom for a while longer. Asked if she was pregnant, since she seemed to have gained weight, Luko looked embarrassed as she denied the rumour. Sandstrom quickly came to her rescue, saying she looked just as beautiful as ever.
