So many watch events and so little time. Closing out the year, comes the Singapore Watch Fair 2023 (SWF 2023). Presented by Resorts World Sentosa and held at the Equarius Hotel at Resorts World Sentosa, watch aficionados will be privy to 24 brands and independent watchmakers with a horological haul valued at US$25 million. SWF promises to be your gateway to a world of horological wonders. Embrace the elegance, indulge in the history, and ignite your passion for watches in an atmosphere of luxury and sophistication.

From 18 to 21 October 2023, SWF will feature rockstar collectors like Sandro Fratini and Ali Nael, as they partner with FutureGrail to reveal The Essence of Time Museum. Horological expert Arnaud Tellier offers his curation of rare and exquisite limited-edition watches from Vacheron Constantin, Patek Philippe, Rolex and more.

Another one of the shining gems at SGF is Ludovic Ballouard's masterpiece which is crafted from the rarest metal on Earth, osmium. Highly sought after, this piece is valued for its distinctive upside-down numbers crafted from onyx.
