Held in partnership with Shoppes at Four Seasons, this year’s Masters of Time will explore the idea of memories with a curated collection that celebrates how collectors and brands commemorate the moments they hold dear. Bringing together over 450 fine watches and jewelry masterpieces from 30 brands, DFS’ team of watches and jewelry experts has assembled an unprecedented collection that showcases the best of design, technology and heritage for both men and women.
Available for viewing from December 9 until February 18, at T Galleria by DFS in Macau, this year’s Masters of Time introduces for the first time a multisensory exhibition inspired by the theme of memories. Guests can tour the curated collection displayed amongst a series of interactive pop-up spaces. Evoking senses, emotions and experiences, Masters of Time will take guests on a journey of nostalgia, heritage and adventure, all while making new memories.
The Masters of Time collection promises to intrigue seasoned collectors and first-time buyers alike. DFS’ watches and jewelry experts have searched the globe to curate the 2017 DFS Masters of Time Collection, which features exceptional pieces from brands including:
Other, higher-end Tank versions include variations on the shape and layout, as well as options such as fancier movements and valuable metals. The Tank Louis Cartier offers a lot of what the Cartier Tank Solo XL does however will be more elegant in pretty much every way, with a Piaget (same parent company, Richemont) base movement inside, and only available in precious metal. Sportier options can be located in the Santos and MC families. However, all of them are more expensive than the entry-level Cartier Tank Solo XL Automatic.A great deal of other brands offer you rectangular and square watches which are at least affected by the Cartier Tank, though few are quite successful, it seems. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso is, of course, another major rectangular, Art Deco watch out there, but it’s more expensive and actually provides a somewhat different charm. If your Cartier Tank option must be rectangular, please try it on first since it’s much harder to get proportions and fit right than with a round watch.Another way of appearing at the Cartier Tank Solo XL Automatic would see its competitors as standard dress-style mechanical watches in the $3,000-$4,000 range, around or otherwise. Dress-style watch choices exist for just about any budget. For those on a much tighter budget, we suggested Orient’s apparel watches and looked at a couple of them. I anticipate readers’ suggestions.
