Mizhattan reports "absolutely no line" at the Tourneau sample sale when she stopped by on Saturday. Brands in house included Cartier, Bulgari, Bell & Ross, Hermes, Harry Winston, Dior, Gucci, Chopard, Breitling, and Piaget, and the atmosphere is almost intimidatingly civilized, with a one-to-one ratio of customers to sales associates. It sounds like the crowd must be heavily male, too, since nobody's paying attention to the jewelry. [Mizhattan; Dealfeed]
