Sean Li

The watch afi­cionado and guest ed­i­tor for this is­sue of Jewels & Time re­veals his thoughts on the cur­rent horo­log­i­cal cli­mate (p.22).

What can’t you re­sist in a watch? Ti­ta­nium chrono­graphs, dark blue di­als, black (PVD/ DLC/ ce­ramic) cases.

The watch you wear on a daily ba­sis? I some­times change watches two or three times in a day!

Which watch­maker would you like to be stuck in a lift with, and what would you tell them? A watch­maker from 100 years in the fu­ture, so I can ask what will hap­pen in the next cen­tury for watches.

Yanni Tan

The jew­ellery con­nois­seur shares her ex­per­tise on lesser-known stones (p.56).

If you had an un­lim­ited bud­get, what would be your dream jew­ellery? I’d com­mis­sion Bul­gari to help me ac­quire the finest Burmese Mo­gok ru­bies to be made into a full jew­ellery set.

What’s the one thing you can’t re­sist in jew­ellery? Blind­ing bling bling.

If you were a stone, which one would you be? Why? An alexan­drite. It’s a colour­chang­ing stone that’s green in day­light and red in in­can­des­cent light. De­spite its rar­ity and high value, it is not flashy and pos­sesses a mys­te­ri­ous, ret­i­cent qual­ity—like me, I’d like to imag­ine.

Des­mond Lim

Des­mond is the cre­ative eye be­hind our cover shoot (p.68).

If you had an un­lim­ited bud­get, what would be your dream watch? Aude­mars Piguet Royal Oak in full gold with a black dial.

Your worst habit when it comes to watch col­lect­ing? At­tempt­ing to pol­ish all my watches with a pol­ish cloth. So silly of me!

Which jew­ellery de­signer would you like to be stuck in a lift with? Francesca Am­fithe­atrof, de­sign di­rec­tor at Tif­fany & Co. She is can­did, very warm and is truly one of those cool girl types you want to be best friends with. Charm­ing!

Ong Weisheng

He styles the jew­ellery by lo­cal de­sign­ers on p.86.

If you had an un­lim­ited bud­get, what would be your dream watch? Un­lim­ited bud­get... That makes this ques­tion re­ally tough but it would prob­a­bly be ei­ther the Ur­w­erk URCC1, 202 White Shark or Harry Win­ston Opus 3.

What’s the one thing you can’t re­sist in a watch? I like in­no­va­tion and prac­ti­cal­ity. De­sign plays a huge part for me.

Which watch­maker would you like to be stuck in a lift with? I’ve had the chance to meet Felix and Martin from Ur­w­erk, so I would say that it’s off my bucket list!
