Hosted at T Galleria by DFS, Macau, Shoppes at Four Seasons, Masters of Time will unveil over 250 timepieces and fine jewelry items from over 40 world-renowned houses, including exclusive bespoke pieces created especially for the event.
Masters of Time is recognized as the world’s premier retail exhibition of luxury timepieces and jewelry. It is a signature event in DFS’ Masters Series, which showcases DFS’ leadership and creativity in curating exceptional experiences across its five pillars of luxury: Wines and Spirits, Beauty and Fragrances, Watches, and Jewelry, Fashion and Accessories, and Food and Gifts. Created by DFS in 2008 to bring the very best brands in the world of watchmaking–and their ambassadors–together with enthusiasts and collectors alike, Masters of Time is traditionally hosted each year in the dynamic shopping enclave of Macau.
This edition of Masters of Time also features the inaugural DFS Masters Awards, a recognition of innovation, artistry and flair in the watch and jewelry categories. A panel of specially-selected, independent experts will judge pieces for their timelessness, technical excellence, craftsmanship, innovation, and exceptional use of a variety of artistic techniques. The panelists, led by chair Carson Chan, the head of the Greater China mission for the Fondation de la Haute Horologerie, come from a diverse background of industry experts, designers, tastemakers, and entrepreneurs and includes Laura Lan, Nik Wang, Vianney Halter, Emmanuel Gueit, Penny Chiang, Samuel Chan, and Lung Lung Thun. Commemorating his partnership with DFS Group, Vianney Halter, the master of chronometers who is renowned for his unique style as well as for his own technical patents and trademarked designs, has constructed a handful of first edition timepieces launching at Masters of Time, notably the ‘Deep Space Resonance’ – a one-of-a-kind masterpiece which is globally launching only at DFS.
The twelfth edition of Masters of Time also celebrates the beginning of a partnership between DFS Group and Phillips Auctioneers, where–for the first time– fine and rare timepieces will be available in Macau outside of the traditional auction setting. In addition, Andy Zhang, Director of Watches, China, and Wenjia Zhang, Regional Director, China, Phillips, will attend the event in Macau and host a masterclass titled “The Art of Collecting”, sharing tips on starting a collection and other insider knowledge on market trends.
