CH Premier partnered with Swiss watchmaker Blancpain to bring the Blancpain Ocean Commitment Exhibition to Westfield Valley Fair, Santa Clara. The exhibition has traveled all around the world: China, Hong Kong, Sydney, Tokyo, and Moscow. This is the second showing in North America following Las Vegas in January.
On May 5, 2016, CH Premier and Blancpain hosted an evening cocktail reception and speaking engagement with Blancpain US Brand President, David Gely and long time friend of the brand, Jeffrey Kingston, where the two discussed about the brand’s longstanding connection and commitment to persevering and protecting the world’s oceans. Among those in attendance was VIP clients and watch enthusiasts from the Bay Area.
For the duration of the exhibition period, CH Premier will be showcasing an extensive collection of the Fifty Fathom timepieces. The collection embodies Blancpain’s passion for the underwater world since 1953 by creating the first modern dive watch. Each Fifty Fathom model features the signature elements from the original diver’s watch and design choices based on the risks and necessities in the diving world. Latest editions added to the collection pay tribute to the pioneers of diving, whose passions and dedication has continued to inspire Blancpain to create timepieces with technological advancement and innovative materials for underwater exploration.
To highlight the Ocean Commitment, Blancpain offers the limited edition Ocean Commitment Bathyscaphe Chronograph Flyback, limited to 250 pieces worldwide.

The Blancpain Ocean Commitment has gathered much attention and contributions from the public toward the preservation of marine life. Inspired by Blancpain and leaders and media around the world, this program saved 3 million square kilometers of ocean in just 4 years. This year, the “Ocean Commitment” exhibition held at Westifled Valley Fair with CH Premier Jewelers aims not only to introduce people to diving, adventure photography, dive watches and accessories, but also to inspire passion and attention to protecting ocean resources.
CH Premier and Bvlgari hosted a private viewing event on April 30, 2016. Extensive collections of rare timepieces, limited edition couture jewelry, and the latest Basel 2016 introductions were unveiled to our VIP guests. Cocktail and sumptuous hor d’oeuvres were served.
Serpenti Limited Edition:
In the 1940’s, Bvlgari started designing wristwatches in the form of a snake, better known today as the iconic Serpenti. Overtime, the Serpenti has evolved into varieties of colorful gems, unmistakeable creativity and craftsmanship in every design.
This Baselworld, Bvlgari introduced the new Serpenti Incantati. For the first time, the Serpenti coils around the bezel, giving the watch a modern design with an “enchanting” high jewelry charm.
The Bvlgari Diva watch is presented as Haute Joaillerie in Diva’s Dream, capturing the essence of glamour and elegance in a contemporary design, while proclaiming it’s roots as the House of Jewels to bring extraordinary pieces to life.
Octo Finissimo Tourbillon:
Bvlgari Octo Finissimo is inspired by octagon shape of the Roman Massentius Basilica. Cased inside the watch is the extra-thin mechanical tourbillon movement, with a world record of 1.95mm thick.

The story of Qeelin began at the hub of cultural exchanges between China and the West, along the “Silk Road”, the caves of Dunhuang stand out among the art treasure of the world by possessing a special geographical and cultural significance. It was during a visit to these legendary caves in 1997 that Dennis Chan had a revelation and decided to turn this into a creative idea; translating all his emotions about China into meaningful, contemporary and universal jewellery – and Qeelin was born.
Since its inception in 2004, Qeelin has embraced the evocative myths of the East, creating lavish fine jewellery that is abundant in symbolism. In each collection, iconic designs, carefully selected materials and exceptional craftsmanship deliver a beguiling combination of poise, playfulness, imaginative whimsy and enchanting Oriental beauty.
Qeelin first caught the attention of the world when actress Maggie Cheung appeared at the Festival de Cannes wearing Qeelin’s signature Wulu collection. Since then, Qeelin has been coveted among stars and luminaries all over the world. In 2007, Qeelin opened the doors to its boutique in Paris at Jardin du Palais Royal. Today, Qeelin’s boutiques can be found in fashion capitals across the globe, including Paris, Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai. In 2013, Qeelin joined Kering group, a world leader in apparel and accessories in luxury and sport & lifestyle brands.
On February 20th, CH Premier Jewelers officially celebrated its partnership with Qeelin at Westfield Valley Fair with special guest appearance of Creative Director Dennis Chan. This celebration completed the Golden Week of Lunar New Year. Chinese Tea Tasting, Fortune Telling, Lion Dance and Calligraphy are some of the traditional Lunar New Year guests could participate in.
