Singapore’s Art Science Museum will host the ‘Cartier Time Art’ exhibition from 14 December 2011 to 12 February 2012. The Marina Bay attraction is the first venue in Asia to host this exhibition, which features the largest collection of Cartier timepieces ever displayed in public.
Christopher Kilaniotis, Managing Director of Cartier Singapore said; “We are pleased that the first museum in Asia to host the Cartier Time Art exhibition is the Art Science Museum at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. It is an important exhibition, never seen before in Asia or, as a matter of fact, outside Switzerland. We are happy that the exhibition is held in a country famous for being a watch hub and within an iconic and new Singapore landmark.”
The 158 historical timepieces that will be presented at the Art Science Museum have been selected from the Cartier Collection – an array of vintage Cartier objects that date from the company’s origins. They include the Santos wristwatch (designed in 1904 as a custom made watch and released in 1911), the large Portique mystery clock (1923), a very rare jumping-hour pocket watch with a transparent case.
