The Singapore Watch Fair 2023 (SWF), a significant event in the horological calendar, is scheduled to take place from 18 to 21 October at Resorts World Sentosa.
The event, organized by A&N Luxury, is part of the broader Ultraluxe Festival which encompasses Jeweluxe, the Advocacy Show, and Homme besides the SWF, aiming to redefine luxury by bringing together discerning shoppers and niche brands.
Over 20 brands and independent watchmakers are set to participate, showcasing timepieces valued at an estimated US $25 million.
Notable mentions include the Ludovic Ballouard UD Osmium, a timepiece crafted from osmium, one of the rarest precious metals on Earth.
Exhibitions and Panel Discussions
A highlight of the event is The Essence of Time Museum, curated by Arnaud Tellier, where rare and historical timepieces alongside limited edition watches from reputable brands like Vacheron Constantin, Patek Philippe, and Rolex will be exhibited. Collectors Sandro Fratini and Ali Nael, in collaboration with FutureGrail, are the minds behind this extraordinary collection.
Moreover, the ‘Talking Time’ panel sessions will provide a platform for engaging discussions among watchmakers, horological experts, and renowned collectors worldwide, including names like Gary Getz, Sandro Fratini, and Dr. Bernard Cheong. Topics of discussion include the ascent of luxury watches as alternative assets, presented by AXA, and a conversation on the rise of Chinese watchmaking between Asia’s top watchmakers, Atelier Wen and Zehua Tan.
Networking and Industry Interaction
The SWF aims to foster a robust networking environment, facilitating connections between discerning collectors and visionary watchmakers. This aspect of the event underscores the goal of creating a community-centric platform that promotes knowledge exchange and industry interaction.
