Breguet delivers a Shot of Class to Marina Bay Sands
Breguet Singapore flagship boutique recently relocated to bigger premises within Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands and it celebrated its re-opening with heritage icons, classical violinist and a lion dance.
Breguet recently relocated its flagship within Marina Bay Sands and while renovation works were in progress, the star of the casino-resort dimmed ever so slightly, until last May 2017, Breguet celebrated the grand re-opening of its boutique at a new location with the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
Guests and clients were invited to experience the new store concept of the Breguet flagship – an expansive 134 sq m boutique compared to the earlier Breguet boutique (also located within Marina Bay Sands) with 115 sq m. The re-invigorated temple to watchmaking now stands as one of two Breguet boutiques within Southeast Asia, the other, 350km north in Kuala Lumpur.
Re-Opened Breguet Singapore boutique at Marina Bay Sands
At least 60 VIP guests joined Breguet and Swatch Group Singapore and Malaysia Management executives at the ribbon-cutting ceremony which combined an exhibit of traditional fine Swiss watchmaking with East-meets-West cultural performances, namely, a lion dance which ushered good fortune for the official opening and classical violin accompaniment provided by up-and-coming Ukrainian violinist Orest Smovzh, who serenaded watch collectors and brand lovers.
Classic elegance met classic timepieces in a sophisticated setting which allowed clients to appreciate fine Breguet watchmaking in luxurious walnut settees whilst enjoying a bit of watch geekery when they spy the signature Breguet Clous de Paris engine-turned engravings on the glass walls scattered throughout the boutique.

For this occasion, Breguet Marina Bay Sands played host to an exceptional collection of antique pocket watches from Breguet’s museum to the delight of the many connoisseurs at the event.
A brand signature, guilloché patterning derives its strong associations thanks to founder Abraham-Louis Breguet who began fitting his watches with guilloché silver or gold dials of his own design in 1786. Under him, guilloché became an art form, with hand-engraved lines and hollowed-out areas of the dial reserved for indications such as the power reserve, the moon’s phases and the subdial for the seconds.
