As part of the preview of its Spring sales in Hong Kong, Christie’s has organised a series of special events in Singapore, including a panel discussion on watch collecting, with a focus on vintage timepieces and independent watchmakers, moderated by SJX.
Titled “The Convergence of Collecting”, the panel discussion will discuss two different ends of watch collecting – independent watchmaking and vintage wristwatches – that are wildly popular in South-East Asia. This event happens alongside the preview of timepieces to be offered at Christie’s sale in Hong Kong at end May. Moderated by Su Jia Xian (SJX), the editor of this blog, the panel will comprise Sam Hines, the Head of Christie’s Watch Department, as well as watch collector Audric Haryadi, and Ong Ban, who heads watch retailer Sincere Fine Watches. The event will take place on Saturday, 3 May 2014 at 11 am in the Shangri-La Hotel. Registration is required for attendance – that can be done on Christie’s registration page.Back to top.
