    Seamaster Exclusive Boutique Singapore Limited Edition

    You have to flip this simple but elegant timepiece over to see what’s so special about it. Laser-engraved on the grey inner ring of the case back are iconic sites Singaporeans will immediately recognise - Raffles Hotel, Merlion, ArtScience Museum and Marina Bay Sands Hotel. This 3-hand, blue and diamond-polished, time-only watch in 39.50 mm diameter stainless steel, wrapped around a white lacquered domed dial, was launched on Jan 28, 2019 — precisely 200 years after Sir Stamford Raffles first set foot on Singapore. Only 200 pieces of the watch are produced — and sold exclusively here — to celebrate Singapore’s Bicentennial. The watch, which retails at S$10,500, features a matching blue leather strap and is powered by the Omega Master Chronometer Calibre 8800, one of the most advanced movements in the market today.
