Here we interview with the founder of Salon de Temps, Kenneth, and we talk about his startup journey, process of repairing a luxury watch, and what is the most expensive watch he ever handle!
Kenneth, 29, started repairing luxury watch during his national service days, picked up the skills from his mentor who has been in this industry for over 30 years! Few years down the road, he decided to turn his dream of opening a luxury watch repair shop into a reality.
At such young age, he is able to handle most of the luxury watches that includes Rolex, Omega, Tag Heuer, Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, Richard Mille and many more!
According to his experience, a luxury watch requires servicing every 2 – 3 years, or if you experience a weird sound coming from the watch; or if the timing is not accurate anymore. To add, the most difficult part when it comes to repairing luxury watch is sourcing of those retro watches with discontinued parts. However, it won’t be a problem for Salon de Temps with their extensive connections! Simply bring down your watch and they will find a solution for you.
Interesting, there are watch that costs millions! When we asked about the most expensive watch he ever handled, it was the RM057 (Richard Mille – Jakie Chan Dragon)! Not many luxury watch repair shops in Singapore are able to handle such watches! But if you do own such expensive watch, you know who to look for.
