Happy Hour with Robb: A brand-new virtual series that delves into the brilliant minds of luxury watchmakers

Happy Hour With Robb

Within each half-hour session, we’ll get to know industry leaders a little better and shine the spotlight on the year’s novelties. Watch this space to get the latest updates on Happy Hour With Robb

The adage, ‘time and tide wait for none’, rings true for the horological industry, and many watch connoisseurs would concur. The current global crisis has seen world-renowned luxury watchmakers push themselves through adversities in recent months, parting from tradition and turning to the digital sphere to release the year’s novelties. However, the pleasure gained from purchasing a fine timepiece can only be derived from physical interaction, whether it’s touching and admiring the watch in the metal, trying it on or learning its story from its very own makers.

Which is why we’re introducing our brand-new Happy Hour With Robb series, a webinar where we feature watchmaking’s most brilliant minds and discover what makes them tick. While you won’t get to try your hands on any new timepieces, you’ll be invited to get up close and personal with the watch industry’s head honchos.

With this series, we will take a closer look at various luxury novelties set for the year, and understand which models should be on every watch connoisseur’s radar.

For the first session, happening this 19 May 2020 (Tuesday) at 7.30pm, Robb Report Singapore’s editor-in-chief Karishma Tulsidas will be inviting A. Lange & Söhne’s director of product development, Anthony de Haas, for a drink. Join them and watch the pair deep dive into what makes an A. Lange & Söhne watch so coveted today.

Within this half-hour webinar, you’ll also be acquainted with two new reiterations of A. Lange & Söhne timepieces – the Odysseus and Zeitwerk Minute Repeater that were recently seen at Watches & Wonders 2020. Other renowned industry leaders who will be making an appearance on Happy Hour With Robb include Christian Knoop, IWC Schaffhausen’s creative director, who will be joined by Kenneth Tan, Robb Report Malaysia’s editorial director.
