Singapore Clock and Watch Trade Association (SCWTA) celebrated its 80th anniversary on 26th Oct 2009. A hard cover book titled "Fabulous@80" was published to commemorate the event and I was fortunate to receive a copy of it.
The book documented the history of the association as well as that of many watch businesses in Singapore. It
also has two interesting articles on Seiko and Citizen. One of them
talks about how Dr. Samson Sun of Sun International brought Citizen
into Singapore in 1963 and the other one talks about how Mr. Chia Hoy
the managing director of Thong Sia led Seiko to play a leading role in
Singapore’s sporting scene to win the hearts and minds of a young
nation in the 60’s.
Some websites were also mentioned in another article titled ‘Cyber Whirl’, including Yeoman’s Weblog. Click here to read the pdf version of the article.
Wishing the SCWTA happy anniversary and many more.
