Grand Seiko Event in Singapore

watchmaker.jpgEspecially for the Seiko (lovers) readers based in Singapore and around the South East Asia region, I would like to bring to your attention a month long event that is currently held by World of Watches 2 (WoW2) located at Wisma Atria in collaboration with the exclusive Seiko distributor for Singapore, Thong Sia.

This marks the first time an event of such scale is held in Singapore to help promote awareness and visibility for the Grand Seiko and also the lower tier Seiko branding (i.e. Presage, Prospex, etc). Other than a master watchmaker (Mr. Satoshi HIRAGA who was invited to the official closed door event), various historical pieces were also specially flown down from Japan to exhibit for this event. The official media coverage for the 4th November event were provided by the Deployant Team, Revolutions, August Man, amongst others.

For other watch collectors who are keen to visit the store to see some of the Seiko novelties and limited edition Grand Seikos, they will be on display until the end of November.  Unfortunately the Historical pieces were immediately flown back to Japan after the conclusion of the 4th Nov official event.

On 11th November Friday evening, I understand that there will be a mini gathering of members of Seiko Club SG, Hardwarezone forum members and other Seiko collectors at WoW2. There will also be a strap maker present during the event. As such, it will be a good time for any readers who are interested to head down this Friday as well!
