Singapore, 15th June 2016 – WOW Singapore’s Summer issue is here with the top picks from BaselWorld 2016, sorted thematically to highlight the most important trends and innovations
WOW’s Summer issue has arrived, and with it the latest and greatest from BaselWorld 2016. What has all the talk of offering greater value wrought? What new collaborations with industry outsiders are afoot, and how have they contributed to watchmaking? Which classics have been refreshed this year with new iterations? These questions, and more, are all answered in the annual Basel Report.
Fronted by Panerai’s Radiomir 1940 10 Days GMT Automatic Oro Rosso PAM624, the issue is anchored by an in-depth look at the brand’s long power reserve watches. Other key features include interviews with four elder statesmen in watchmaking, a rundown of the 10 movements any aficionado must know, and the things that go into making the perfect chronograph. Balancing out the heavy reads are two contrasting photospreads for the summer days and nights, as well as a story pairing the scents and watches worn by a man.
Contributing Managing Editor of WOW, Yeo Suan Futt, says, “WOW has consistently invested in producing the best possible content for our readers, and this bumper issue is further proof of our commitment to doing so. From shooting the novelties at BaselWorld ourselves to highlight details that would otherwise be lost, to conversations with industry veterans with nearly two centuries of experience between them, we have worked to deliver content that will engage, inform, and educate. The dedication has paid off in many ways, not least by the title’s longevity – we are slated to celebrate our 15th anniversary later this year.”
Olivier Burlot, CEO and Publisher, added, “WOW continues to grow from strength to strength. The title welcomed its eighth member, WOW Middle East, earlier this year, and will be involved in the inaugural Singapore Rendezvous taking placing at Raffles Marina in mid-October. These are exciting times!”
