There are few hotels in the world whose names have become virtually synonymous with the cities in which they are located – and none more so than Raffles in Singapore.
In September 2012, Raffles Singapore celebrated its 125th anniversary. So what better way to mark this special point in time and Raffles’ continuing story, than to turn to another timeless symbol of good taste and style: Jaeger-LeCoultre, whose own history goes back over nearly 180 years?
The company’s double-sided Reverso watch line is a classic. When its case is turned over, the Reverso is transformed into a jewel that can be personalised forever by an engraving. Now, to mark its 125th, Jaeger-LeCoultre has created an exclusive engraving “Raffles Hotel 1887-2012 Singapore”, available on Gents’ Reverso Grande Taille, and Ladies’ Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin. The watches are on display in a showcase at the main lobby, should you wish to view them.
The Ladies’ Grande Reverso Ultra Thin is priced at SGD 13,000 nett and the Grande Reverso Taille is at SGD 10,000 nett.
