Last night I donned some tennis whites to attend the TAG Heuer Summer party at MS Collins with hubby. Just in time for the Australian Open, the Swiss luxury watch giant hosted a discotheque-type party with the help of global DJ sensation, NERVO, and guest of honour, international tennis champion and TAG Heuer Ambassador Maria Sharapova. She was indeed the major draw card. Ms Collins was fully packed with TAG Heuer enthusiasts and Sharapova fans. Excitement among the crowd was at fever pitch when she appeared alongside Kate Peck and the Aussie twins Mim and Liv at the sound deck.
I left at half time because I was melting (the aircon must have go on strike due to the celebrity overload) and as a result missed out on having a photo with the tennis star. But then again, maybe I’m getting too old for fan girl snaps and rave parties. Nevertheless, I had a whale of a time. It was super neat to catch up with friends at the dawn of 2015 (happy birthday and Congratulations once again Christianna!) and to recount all our blessings in 2014. Ironically, I noticed that most of us didn’t wear watches… My excuse is that since I wear mine when I’m working as a vet, not wearing it makes me feel like I’m on holidays. It’s like taking a vacation, mentally.
Even though we literally have time at our finger tips these days thanks to our smart phones, there’s nothing like being able to tell the time through the lens of an elegant watch. And with origins dating back to 1860, TAG Heuer watches have indeed stood the test of time. Plus, is there anything that the Swiss don’t do well? A well designed watch exudes sophistication and professionalism. It will always be the pièce de résistance. And no one is too old (or young) for a timeless timepiece.
