A New Beginning for local Watch Brand Aries Gold

THE GREAT WHITE

Singaporean watch maker, Aries Gold has renamed to AG Collective and has released a new line of watches. An iconic design built for customisation and with specifications that made the watches built to last, Aries Gold unveiled “The Great White,” a collection built for the modern gentleman.

A DIVE WATCH

The Great White is a collection of dive watches created for the oceans.. The Great White, much like the predator of its namesake, establishes itself as a recognisable icon in performance and design, blending contemporary touches with an impeccable attention to detail, and most importantly, performance. A 300m Diving Watch with ceramic bezel, a watch built to last for a long time.

WHY A DIVE WATCH?

CK Woo founded the brand back in 1970. He loved watches but couldn’t afford one, so he became a watch apprentice. In 1979 he used his insurance pay out to start watch manufacturing. Not long after he started he received a very memorable request to engrave a woman’s name on the dial of a customer’s dive watch in remembrance of his wife. This incident reminded CK Woo that watches are not only used for showing our style of status, but also used to celebrate or remember moments in life. He was so positively impacted by the incident he decided to use the Dive watch as the first collection of AG Collective.

WHY PERSONALISATION?

Being a Singaporean watch brand and maintaining the “Made in Singapore” status can be really hard. Globally, people place higher value for Swiss Made or Japan Made watches or brands from Switzerland and Japan tends to also have a higher recognition in the market. Finding the niche to market the brand has always been a challenge.

After working with International Icons like Foo Fighters, Aerosmith, and Rocky, the stars loved the watches we made for them and an idea struck the team that instead of just releasing limited edition collaboration watches, why not we offer this service to everyone instead.

This is now possible with the investment of half a million dollars’ worth of manufacturing equipment and infrastructure in their Singapore HQ for the personalisation of watches.

AG Collective believes in doing things differently in 3 ways

Personalisation

Each watch allows for personalisation of the watch dial with text or pictures.

Text or pictures can also be added to the glass case back as well.

This personalisation allows the watches to add significance to gifting for events like anniversaries, graduations, and other milestones.

Made to Order

Each personalised watch is made only when you order them, ensuring that it is not your usual run in the mill factory production job.

In-house Made

Made right here in our Singapore factory. Find that hard to believe? You are welcomed to come visit us to customise your watch and collect them on the spot, but please make your appointments in advance due to the increasing number of people visit, we will need to stagger to ensure social distancing rules.
