CROWN and The Hour Glass: 'Class In Session'Written by Alvin Wong
Why park good money on a luxury watch? What are the options? These questions and more were raised, discussed and debated at our first-ever ‘Class In Session’ talk on horological appreciation, hosted exclusively for HSBC’s Premier Banking customers.
20 May 2015, More Passion by The Hour Glass
Over 30 high net worth HSBC customers attended the intimate session. The evening started with a market update from HSBC’s investment service division, and stepped up a notch during CROWN editor Alvin Wong’s presentation, which introduced guests to the joys of watch appreciation and offered insights on what kind of timepieces to buy. During the presentation, guests also had a chance to get up close and personal with luxury timepieces from the likes of Rolex, Patek Philippe, MB&F and Urwerk.
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
