While most of the watchmaking houses and brands don’t have a local house in Thailand, we will see clockmaker Sebastian, Ludovic Ballouard, and Xavier De Roquemaurel (Czapek) visit Bangkok for the first time. That’s not it, we will have chief executives of the houses of Alchemists, Azimuth, Christophe Claret, Cyrus, Ateliers DeMonaco, Kerbedanz, Kudoke, Manufacture Royale, Speake-Marin, Paul Design, Perrelet, Romain Gauthier, Schwarz-Etienne and Strom as well. Moreover, they will be hosting some of the exclusive hospitality events.
Singapore Luxury Timepiece partner Jimmie Tay reveals his main objective behind Bangkok’s debut for the upcoming watch exhibition. “It is not just an exhibition of premier ultra-luxury timepieces. Much that we love to appreciate and admire the tremendous creativity and skill of these watch craftsmen. We want this exhibition to also have a real purpose – that is to give back to the community, to this group of beneficiaries who have very challenging circumstances and this is a way to help them get back on their feet to support their families,” said Jimmie Tay.
In partnership with Christie’s Thailand, who also introduced us to the auction world, the Charity Auction will be held on 6th September 2019 Gaysorn Urban Resort, The Crystal Box, 19 Fl. The starting reserve prices for these treasured premiere timepieces will range from USD 5,000 to USD 90,000.
This exhibition has been organised with the support of Tourism Authority of Thailand, Art of Time, and a joint collaboration by Singapore luxury timepiece partner Jimmie Tay, Caureen Too and Thai partner Khun Kannikar Thientawai. Alongside we will see other luxury lifestyle partners holding events such as seminars in finance, property, automobile, and showcase yacht.
Bangkok Independent Watchmaking Exhibition 2019 will be held from 4-8 September 2019 at Gaysorn Village.
