Speciality mechanical watchmaker Arbutus has collaborated with seven artists from 10 Square@Orchard Central, the youth division of non-profit organisation The Little Arts Academy, to create 13 limited-edition timepieces which feature miniature paintings depicting Singapore's heritage and landmarks.
Priced at $1,800 each, sale proceeds of the Arbutus Singapore Jubilee Limited Edition Timepiece will fund the arts education of youth from economically disadvantaged families.
Unsold timepieces from last month's Arbutus Art & the Art of Watchmaking SG50 Watch Artisans Exhibition at VivoCity are on display and available for purchase at Tangs.
