Lamch & Co, Brings Klokers Watches Into Singapore

KLOK-01: Inspired by the side rule
Klokers timepieces are neither vintage nor retro but part of a transverse reality. They offer a means to travel between yesterday and tomorrow, being resolutely focused on the future. These are the Klokers Machines To Travel Through Time.

Before the advent of cheap pocket calculators, slide rules were the fastest method for working out complex calculations. Travel through time as Klokers pays homage to this iconic, form-followsfunction instrument with the brand’s first watch, the KLOK-01, featuring three rotating disks displaying time along a vertical line.

The KLOK-01 display is a graphical representation of a slide rule using three rotating concentric rings to display the time along a vertical red line. The rings — one each for hours, minutes, and seconds — rotate at different speeds, making the whole dial a symphony of motion.

 

KLOK-01 is Swiss Made and features a high-tech movement with a high-precision quartz movement. The rotating disk displays are driven by high-efficiency, bi-directionally functioning Lavet micromotors that boast low power consumption. These disks display the time on a vertical red line at the top of the dial. An integrated magnifying lens in the crystal ensures maximum legibility when reading the time.

 

The 44 mm case of KLOK-01 is made from a composite metal polymer offering high strength and low weight and ensuring that the timepiece fits comfortably on wrists of all sizes. What’s more, the KLOK-01 is also waterproof up to 5m. A pusher at 8 o’clock on the case band releases the watch from the docking “jewel” for ease of changing watches and bracelets.

KLOCK-02: Push button time travel

Until the end of the 19th century, most towns and cities throughout the world had their own time.  And while that might seem a recipe for chaos now, back then the fastest form of transport was the horse and here was no need to a more structured system. However, with the advent of the railroads opening up much of America, it became evident that train timetables needed to be harmonized, not just for travelers but also avoiding trains travelling in different directions on the same track at the same time.

 

Then in 1884, the timezones we know today was established. While time zones were essential in enabling fast and reliable train transport, they were even more so when international aviation (quite literally) took off. Today, many if not most of us have regular connections, either physical or digital, with friends, family, and colleagues in various locations and time zone around the world and KLOK02 makes it easier than ever to know not just where they are, but when they are.

 

 

While it may be the large arc of the retrograde minutes and seconds sweeping across the top section of KLOK-02 that first catches the eye, it’s the small windows underneath where the real magic happens. A circular opening displays jumping hours, to the right of which is a window showing cities, each city in one of 24 time zones around the world. A short press of the pusher on the case band at 4 o’clock changes the city/time zone and the hour in that city’s time zone automatically synchronizes.  A longer press of the pusher causes the date to display.

KLOK-02 features a high-precision, quartz regulated, Swiss Made Soprod SOP 813 mechatronic movement with displays driven by high-efficiency/low power consumption, bi-directional Lavet micromotors. The KLOK-02 just like the KLOK-01 is also waterproof up to 5m.

 

The slim 43 mm case of KLOK-02 is made from a composite metal polymer offering high strength and low weight, ensuring that the timepiece fits comfortably on wrists of all sizes. A pusher at 8 o’clock on the case band releases the watch from the docking “jewel” for ease of changing watches and bracelets.

 

Klokers watches are highly evocative, triggering memories and personal stories from iconic objects of our past. They are like time shuttles for the wrist, reviving timeless style elements and channeling them into fresh, contemporary, playful timepieces respecting the origins of their inspiration.

 

Klokers will be available on 14th February 2017, for the first time in Southeast Asia, at Antė @TANGS Plaza and Antė @Takashimaya. The KLOK-01 retails for $699 and the KLOK-02 retails for $1,499.

 

Press Release – Precision and Elegance Enhanced: Casio Singapore Launches New OCEANUS OCW-G1100

Equipped with GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor Technology, Dual Coil Motor and a completely new hue of blue – Precise timekeeping anywhere in the world has never been easier and more elegant with the OCEANUS OCW-G1100

Singapore, 21 March 2015: Casio Singapore has announced the launch of the OCEANUS OCW-G1100, the latest generation model from the OCEANUS line of solar powered, radio-controlled metal timepieces. Encased in full titanium, the sleek OCW-G1100 is fit with Casio’s proprietary and world’s first GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor Technology and a Dual Coil Motor for increased precision and functionality.

A must-have for discerning travellers, the OCW-G1100 offers swift access to precise world time adjustments, while its dual-toned sapphire crystal bezel and striking blue design accents make it a stylish accessory for both the airport and the boardroom.


Enhanced Precision in Timekeeping for the Globetrotter

The OCW-G1100 features Casio’s pioneering and world’s first GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor Technology that harnesses both Global Positioning System (GPS) signals as well as radio-wave calibration signals from six satellite towers around the world for precise timekeeping anywhere in the world.

The OCW-G1100 is also engineered with a high-torque Dual Coil Motor that powers the hands of the inset dial at the 6 o’clock position to swiftly rotate clockwise or counter-clockwise once the World Time Function is activated. In addition, wearers will be able to nimbly switch between world and home time displays, enabling frequent travellers to multi-task effectively across time zones.

Elegant Design Enhancements for the Stylish Gentleman

The OCW-G1100 boasts a unique two-toned blue and black sapphire crystal bezel which helps make a distinction between varying Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) zones. The right side of the bezel is accented in a remarkable blue hue achieved with a vapour deposition technique and indicates time zones ahead of UTC, while the left side rendered in black indicates time zones behind UTC. While extremely functional, this captivating colour transition is also designed to resemble the earth’s blue atmosphere transitioning into the darkness of space while the index marks, inset dial rings and indicators within the watch face are in three additional distinct hues of blue to complete a harmonious arrangement of blue accents.  

Utilising a gemstone synthesis and crystallisation technology, the second hand of the watch is embellished with the tough allure of recrystallized blue sapphire to add brilliance with each ticking movement, adding to the sophistication of the OCEANUS OCW-G1100.

The inner and outer surface of the dual sapphire crystal watch face is also treated with a non-reflective coating, enabling wearers to achieve greater readability and visibility at all times.

Pricing and Availability

The elegantly designed OCEANUS OCW-G1100 is available at a Suggested Retail Price of SGD$2,799.00, and will retail at the G-FACTORY PREMIUM store at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, G FACTORY stores  at ION and JEM, as well as Casio Singapore’s exclusive retailer, Cortina Watch Chinatown Point.
