Building on their friendship, Cartier and the private club of watch aficionados Singapore Watch Club unveil 18 exclusive watches.
The Singapore Watch Club is celebrating its sixth anniversary this year. Founded on 31 October 2015 by watch collector Tom Chng, it was originally a small community for watch enthusiasts who met on Instagram. The Singapore Watch Club describes itself as a “friendly fraternity of passionate people coming together to share their affection for watches.”
Tom Chng spoke about the collaboration with Cartier for CNA Luxury : “We thought of this concept almost two years ago. At the time, it was just a dream. Now it is a reality and we have the watches on our wrists” . To celebrate its fourth anniversary, the club had already had the opportunity to collaborate with the Hublot brand. “It’s really an honour, as a watch enthusiast, to have the opportunity to work with brands that we’ve been big fans of over the years,” he continued.
The collection consists of 18 unique watches. Six Cartier models served as inspiration before being developed : Cloche, Tonneau, Santos Dumont, Tank Asymetric, Tank Cintrée and Tank Louis Cartier. The silver dial and blue minute track bear the Singapore Watch Club colours. On closer inspection, the club’s signature can be seen hidden in the minute track, just above the 6 o’clock figure, a subtle nod to Cartier’s tradition of hidden qualities.
For the club’s anniversary, the number “VI” has been turned upwards, delicately expressing its significance. Each of the six watches will be produced in three precious metals, each symbolising one of the three values of the Singapore Watch Club : the rose gold model represents passion, the yellow gold model symbolises sincerity and the platinum model reflects humility. The models are exclusively reserved for members and associates of the club.
