‘A wristed’ development

We are gathered here today to celebrate the union between Sincere Fine Watches and H. Moser & Cie and its two limited editions. These timepieces epitomise harmony, elegance and subtlety. With only three pieces available, they are a ready testament for an intricate minute repeater complication that reveal the captivating chime mechanism on the dial side. A soothing tattoo from the hammers and gongs accompanying the graceful dance of the one-minute flying tourbillon. Sans logos and indices, the dials serve as a lacuna with vibrant turquoise and lush green tones. Experience these exclusive editions at Marina Bay Sands.

Combining fashion and music, the Stratocaster showcases the age-old connection between the two brands. Finished in glossy black with a discreet Saint Laurent logo and special pick-up covers, the guitar is also a ’65 Deluxe Reverb Fender x Saint Laurent Amplifier, which offers a classic sound. Available exclusively at select Saint Laurent stores in Paris and Los Angeles, these collector’s items are a must-have for enthusiasts, yes, even those who plays the opening riff of Stairways to Heaven.
