Apart from drawing watch-lovers' eyeballs from across the planet, Watches and Wonders tends to pull in a fair number of celebrities as well. This year, the likes of Piaget brought in big entertainment names from Thailand and South Korea via actor Nattawin 'Apo' Wattanagitiphat and K-pop star Lee Jun-ho — though it was Hublot who stole the show with Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé, who was spotted at the brand's booth in Geneva.
