On Newsstands: WOW Vietnam Festive 2021
Launching World of Watches Vietnam Festive Issue: Mastering the Seas.
Since childhood, I have read a quote by Charles Darwin: “A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life”. But I think that one hour is still too generous, even just a couple of minutes, wasting time can easily make people fall into regrets. There are opportunities that come once and never come back. I never wanted to feel that way.
This is the sharing of businessman Pham Huy Can, in an exclusive conversation with World of Watches Vietnam about his hobby of watches, and somehow, it transcends the boundaries of models and collecting hobby, which becomes a conversation about life philosophy and gentleman style.
Dear readers, not only Huy Can, but in this publication you will have the opportunity to learn many other aspects of the game of clocks without borders, from Tattoo Artist Maxime Buchi, who has brought unique aesthetic principles from its artistic designs to the world of mechanical watches through an impromptu collaboration with Hublot (page 20); to Jerome Cavadini — Chief Operating Officer of the Panerai brand, on the brand’s sustainability work, to continue pushing the boundaries of the watch industry as far as possible, both in terms of precision and crafting materials (page 140); and Alexander Bigler — Vice President of Christie’s Asia Pacific and Head of Watches, to reveal the secrets behind the world’s largest watch auction (page 146).
Besides, readers will also have the opportunity to learn a lot of interesting stories about the watch world in recent days, such as the revival of the HYT brand, which is likened by players to the “King of Technology” in the world of luxury watches (page 38), or interesting results from the GPHG Awards 2021 (page 32), and Only Watch 2021 (page 44). Along with that are a host of new timepieces from well-known names, from Patek Philippe, Rolex, Omega, Hublot, Tudor, Bell & Ross, and MB&F, among many others.
Continuing the in-depth articles on the watch world, this WOW issue also offers in-depth discussions on the mastery of the seas of the masterpieces of time from Breguet’s Marine collection, especially Marine 5517, Marine 5527 and Marine 5547, one of which we respectfully put on the cover (page 54). Technologists and lovers of new materials will also be interested in an analysis of the superior properties of titanium — a new material that possesses many special advantages over other materials in the industry (page 106), or intuitive guidance and answers to questions in the familiar WOW’s Lab.
Thank you readers for always accompanying the WOW Vietnam publication.
