In commemoration of Jeremy Monteiro’s 35th year in the music industry, local Swiss watchmakers Azimuth has crafted a limited edition Round-1 Back In Time J.M. “35” timepiece to be auctioned at Mary Chia’s 30th Anniversary ‘iMspiration’ Art Affair on Oct 16 at NEX Shopping Mall.
Proceeds from the sale of the watch will go to Very Special Arts Singapore (VSA Singapore), a non-profit charity organisation in aid of disabled individuals by providing them the opportunity to access the arts for the purposes of rehabilitation and social integration.
The musician’s signature is engraved on the back of the all 35 pieces released. The timepiece features chic black and rose gold markers on its dial and strap, with Jeremy Monteiro’s name in red cursive script emblazoned across the dial. Azimuth’s Round-1 Back in Time also features the world’s first anti-clockwise mechanical movement.
Retailing at $2,850, this particular timepiece will be one of the 35 timepieces that will be showcased at Mary Chia’s 30th Anniversary ‘iMspiration’ Art Affair.
In addition to the limited edition timepiece, 30 artworks comprising paintings, photography, sculptures and installations by some well-known local artists will also be up for sale. The artworks are a joint collaboration of artists from Singapore Contemporary Young Artists (SCYA), and VSA Singapore.
They will be on display at the seven-day public exhibition from Oct 15 to 21. Thirty per cent of the proceeds from the sale of the art pieces will be donated to VSA Singapore. A private auction will also be held at the event itself to raise a targeted amount of at least $30,000 for VSA Singapore.
Mary Chia will also be releasing 2,000 special limited-edition commemorative notebooks featuring the exhibited artists and artworks at $39.90 per copy. Buyers will be given a $185 treatment voucher courtesy of beauty and wellness company.
Jeremy Monteiro will be appearing as a special guest during the gala opening reception of the event, alongside fellow Singapore Cultural Medallion Award 2005 recipient, Ms Chng Seok Tin, an acclaimed artist, print maker, sculptress and writer.
