Several leading prestigious brands will be in attendance at the Tokyo Watch Fair which begins tomorrow (or today, depending on where you live), August 20th in Tokyo, Japan.  The event will take place at the Tobu Department Store Ikebukuro, one of Tokyo’s largest department stores.  Most brands will be using this show as an opportunity to show off their new models announced at Baselworld 2009, many of which are appearing in stores now.   A sampling of the brands expected to be in attendance include:   Audemars Piguet, Baume & Mercier, Blancpain, Boucheron, Bovet, Breitling, Bulgari, Carl F. Bucherer, Cartier, Girard Perregaux, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Omega, Oris, Perrelet, Piaget, Rolex, Vacheron Constantin and more!

Among the many, many fine watches sure to be on display at the show, here are a few of my favorites:
