Singapore, 23 August 2012 – Nuyou Time, Singapore’s first Chinese watch annual published by SPH Magazines Pte Ltd (SPH Magazines), celebrates its 10th anniversary with a special double-cover collector’s edition.
The magazine features Zoe Tay on the cover and is designed by Theseus Chan, internationally-acclaimed President’s Design Award winner and founder of creative agency WORK. Nuyou Time’s medieval-inspired front and back covers also showcase high complication timepieces from French watchmaker and jeweller Cartier.
Theseus Chan said: “The design for the covers is a modern take on medieval art, now a prominent Fall/Winter 2012 trend. The artwork also features ornate gold and silver filigree patterns, partly inspired by the outfits and timepieces worn by Zoe Tay, and also because they are fittingly opulent for the magazine’s 10th anniversary.”
As a special celebration, 10 artists from various disciplines were invited to interpret the concept of “Time” using their preferred art forms. Their works are featured within a section in the magazine called “Time, Through the Eyes of Art”.
These artistic expressions, presented in collaboration with ION Orchard feature the works of:
Their works will be exhibited at ION Art Gallery (Level 4, ION Orchard) from 24 August to 2 September 2012.
To commemorate Nuyou Time’s 10th birthday, 10 watches worth more than S$30,000 will be given away to lucky readers.
Grace Lee, Editor-in-Chief, Nuyou and Nuyou Time, said: "Fine watches are not mere tools for telling time; they are also wonderful works of art. I am always amazed by the beauty of their craftsmanship and the complex mechanical movements in a tiny watch case. The inventiveness displayed by timepiece makers is often breathtaking and awe inspiring. The 10th anniversary special edition of Nuyou Time is a celebration of the art of time- an expression that covers a full array of emotions and boundless creativity. This is what Nuyou Time is all about.”
Diana Lee, General Manager, Fashion & Beauty, SPH Magazines, said: “The launch of Nuyou Time's 10th Anniversary issue is an opportune time for us to celebrate our advertisers' support of this magazine through the years. We appreciate them for sharing our belief that Nuyou Timereaches discerning consumers who are fashionable watch enthusiasts. Nuyou Time has grown to be one of the most recognised Chinese watch publications and we strive to inspire more aspiring enthusiasts.”
