The Festive issue of WOW Singapore is back with the most appropriate cover theme, featuring the Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF Xiali Calendar. This is perhaps the best watch to bridge the festive traditions of east and west, sandwiched as we are between Christmas and Chinese New Year.
The editors of Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand gathered around a metaphorical fireplace and regaled each other with tales of their 2023 watch acquisitions. They were joined by a special guest, the Men’s Folio Singapore Editor, in what is now an annual crossover tradition for WOW. This very personal celebration of new timepieces is complemented by a visual presentation of curated watches you could get for yourself in one of WOW’s trademark celebratory spreads.
Between the remaining highlights of the year and our own lists, the editors get down to brass tacks in a frank discussion about how to separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. The answer might lie in the stories we tell ourselves about our favourites, or it might be in the accolades they earn, including the at recently concluded Grand Prix d’Horlogerie Geneve. The timepiece awards show is covered extensively as a result of a collaboration between the Singapore and Malaysia editions.
Finally, the editors hold court with some of the most important personalities in the trade, including the legendary CEO of Bulgari, Jean-Christophe Babin (a WOW exclusive). Roger Dubuis marketing wizard Sadry Keiser speaks truth to power while Bell & Ross Managing Director Fabien Nonancourt explains how every millimetre counts when it comes to case shapes and sizes.
