Singapore, 23 August 2012 – The Peak: Timepieces 2012/2013, the latest issue of the award-winning horology magazine, hits newsstands and bookstores today. Published by SPH Magazines, The Peak: Timepieces is a brand extension of The Peak, Singapore’s leading lifestyle magazine.
An annual publication, The Peak: Timepieces captures high net worth audiences including The Peak’s readers and a growing number of fine watch making connoisseurs. Since its inception in 2005, it has won accolades for its design and content, including the Gold award in the Watch Magazine of the Year category at the MPAS Magazine Awards 2010.
Mr Low Ka Wei, Editor of The Peak, said: “Despite the cautious economic milieu, collectors globally are snapping up the exquisite wares from watchmakers, from classic two-hand timepieces to the mesmerising complications such as tourbillons and minute repeaters. This undiminished love for craftsmanship is laudable in a world full of ephemera.”
For the first time, The Peak Selections: Timepieces is bundled with a special outbound edition, “Forward Heritage”, which tracks the heritage of two horlogical legends – Patek Philippe and The Hour Glass.
The main magazine features the following:
• Top five watches to covet.
• Honest reviews from renowned connoisseurs.
• The quest for millisecond accuracy through cutting-edge high-frequency movements.
• Three solo watchmakers who lend new meaning to independent watchmaking.
• The evolution of military watches, including this year’s hot trend: pilot’s watches.
• Return of the pocket watch, family-owned manufactures, organic dials and more.
The Peak Selections: Timepieces 2012/2013 is available at Kinokuniya, MPH, Prologue and Times bookstores. The magazine retails at S$18 per copy.
