Since young, I was mesmerised by the aesthetic beauty of watch mechanics; with time ticking away as I admired its movement; how the combination of wheels, barrels and springs created a perfect harmony informing us the passing of time. It is this passion that drives me to join the industry when the opportunity presents itself and I was fortunate to learn the tricks and skills by attaching myself to a regional watch group. It was also a time where economic prosperity has resulted in the imploding growth in the industry where people realise a watch-on-wrist is no more than just telling time but reflects a person’s taste in appreciative arts as well.
The advent of information technology has enabled extensive knowledge sharing and it is not an exception too among timepiece aficionados where news on collectibles are spread out and shared extensively. However, I have also observed a noticeable shortcomings i.e. many watch aficionados are still unaware that their precious timepieces require proper long-term upkeep and maintenance. In many occasions, and with a heavy heart, I have to break the news to many customers of mine that their watch is beyond repair and unsalvageable; the emotions is no less than being a doctor breaking the bad news to a patient’s family. I have to do something.
And my answer? To set up TSC.
I sincerely hope the TSC franchise will bring great convenience to all timepiece aficionados in the region and to provide a professional and comprehensive technical service platform to serve their needs. TSC fully understands that the value of a timepiece is not determined only by its tangibles, but the intangibles as well i.e. the memories that it instills on the wearer; the latter only add on unfathomable values to a timepiece.
So in TSC, we want to build a community for watch lover; to be a place where not only we talk technicals, but we valued the intangibles too. We want to hear your stories, the memories; share your joy, your sorrows, the inheritance; the heritage values of your timepiece. In TSC, with every watch that you bring in, we have no prejudice and will take great strides to ensure that all will be treated equally by our team so that when you collect it later, the watch will be as good as new.
So, it is no fluke when our mission is to ensure your timepiece can be well preserved and passed on from one generation to the next. TSC is still a fledgling outfit but we are determined to learn and continue to equip ourselves with more tools and equipments to improve our skills so as to serve our customers better.
