TIFFANY & CO. “THE MAKING OF THE NEW YORK MINUTE” WATCH EXHIBITION
LANDMARK ATRIUM, CENTRAL
HAPPENINGS: Guests travelled back in time for a taste of the authentic New York Minute thanks to Tiffany’s watch exhibition. On display were eight archival timepieces – including one worn by the late US president Franklin D. Roosevelt – representing Tiffany’s 169 years of watchmaking expertise. Also on display were new watches that paid tribute to Charles Tiffany, the founder of the brand. Smooth jazz performed by a live band provided entertainment for the crowd and kept the quintessential New York vibe going. We spotted Eric Kwok, Marie Zhuge, Kayla Wong, Jacqueline Chow, and Feiping Chang admiring the beautiful timepieces.
CHIC CHAT with Wyman Wong
What is it about Tiffany that appeals to you personally?
It’s a brand of so many stories. Even when you’re a kid, you hear about those Tiffany stories, the movies about the main branch in New York, and all the romantic stories that your friends and relatives tell you. I’m a writer, so I love stories.
What is important to you when you write?
I think my lyrics have to be self-explanatory. Anything more than that is not necessary. Good literature pieces should have this function – they should explain themselves.
What three things can you not live without?
Credit cards, cell phones and medicines that I will not tell you [about] because I’m not young … [laughs]
