Farah Ann Hadi’s

As an artis­tic gym­nast, Farah Ann Hadi is poised and grace­ful, ex­e­cut­ing her jumps, som­er­saults and land­ings with pin-sharp pre­ci­sion and sin­gle-minded fo­cus. Th­ese are traits, one would ar­gue, that also de­scribe tra­di­tional Swiss watch­mak­ing, which makes her an ideal choice for the role of Friend of Co­rum—south­east Asia. Ap­pointed in May this year, SEA Games gold medal­list Farah Ann is the sec­ond lo­cal sportsper­son to join the ex­clu­sive club; race car driver We­iron Tan was the first last year. Chris Wan, gen­eral man­ager of Co­rum Malaysia, re­it­er­ates: “Farah Ann is a unique per­son­al­ity who rep­re­sents the Co­rum DNA of the Ad­mi­ral and Bridge col­lec­tions. She’s sporty yet grace­ful, and is an am­bi­tious young woman with a bright fu­ture ahead. She’s def­i­nitely one of the ris­ing stars to watch in the arena of in­ter­na­tional artis­tic gym­nas­tics.” Farah Ann is equally thrilled to join the Co­rum fam­ily. “This is such a won­der­ful hon­our. The brand ex­udes grace, el­e­gance and con­fi­dence, char­ac­ter­is­tics that res­onate with me as a gym­nast, as I have to com­pete and per­form with con­fi­dence and grace. I’m grate­ful to be work­ing with such a won­der­ful and el­e­gant brand, and am ex­cited for our jour­ney ahead.” In the pub­lic­ity shots, Farah Ann sports the Ad­mi­ral Leg­end 38 and the Ad­mi­ral Leg­end 32 with di­a­monds, as well as the Golden Bridge, the first time the usu­ally rec­tan­gu­lar Golden Bridge ap­pears in a round case. This par­tic­u­lar time­piece also hap­pens to be the 24-year-old’s favourite. “It’s truly stun­ning and beau­ti­fully made. The bridge de­sign is classy and spe­cial. And the di­a­monds on the ridges are ab­so­lutely breath­tak­ing,” she en­thuses. At the time of writ­ing, Farah Ann is busy com­pet­ing at the Asian Games in In­done­sia. “Sports has taught me that man­ag­ing your time well is very im­por­tant to be suc­cess­ful. You need to man­age your time wisely as well as be on time for ev­ery train­ing ses­sion and not to men­tion com­pe­ti­tion.” Farah Ann, who started train­ing for gym­nas­tics at the age of three, adds: “I’ve been hav­ing a busy sched­ule since pri­mary school, jug­gling both my stud­ies and train­ing. Thus, I find that it’s im­por­tant not to de­lay things and re­mem­ber that your time and that of oth­ers is pre­cious.” “The big­gest chal­lenge when it comes to time man­age­ment is stick­ing to the sched­ule and get­ting things done even though I’m ex­hausted. Some days it’s re­ally dif­fi­cult to get up and do all the things that need to be done, but that is where hav­ing ev­ery­thing planned out
