New boutique in Taipei celebrates Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year. Actors Sandrine Pinna and James Wen arrive in style.


A special event was held in Taiwan to celebrate the grand opening of OMEGA’s Mitsukoshi A9 boutique in Taipei. The event, attended by popular screen stars Sandrine Pinna and James Wen, was attended by media and VIP guests who enjoyed the “Romantic New Year” theme.

Romantic New Year perfectly described the confluence of Chinese New Year, celebrated this year from the 9th to the 14th of February, and Valentine’s Day. For all Chinese people, the lunar new year is the time that symbolizes the beginning of a better future.


Sandrine Pinna, who has twice won the Best Actress Award at the Taipei Film Festival and who has been nominated for a Golden Horse Film Award, wore an OMEGA Ladymatic in 18K red gold with a deep brown dial.  James Wen has been nominated for five Golden Bell Awards, most memorably for the drama series, My Queen. He sported one of OMEGA’s most talked about watches, the Seamaster Planet Ocean Ceragold.


The event highlighted selected OMEGA watches and the brand’s complete Fine Jewellery Collection – ideal choices to help celebrate the Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day.
