Aaron Kwok Made A Splash With Longines’ HydroConquest Collection In Singapore
Aaron Kwok seems to get better with age. One of the Four Heavenly Kings during the Cantopop heydays, Kwok, who is 53, has since gone on to carve an impressive film career that includes two Golden Horse Awards for Best Actor. In 2016, he finally nabbed the Best Actor prize at the Hong Kong Film Awards after being nominated five times in the category.
The youthful-looking superstar, who is expecting his second child this year, turned on the charm in Singapore earlier this week as Longines Ambassador of Elegance, a role that he has held since 2005. Looking sharp in a crisp white shirt and a pair of checkered pants, he led a trail of adoring fans (journos included) from the new Longines boutique in Marina Bay Sands all the way to the rooftop of Fullerton Bay Hotel for the unveiling of the new Hydroquest dive watches.
In between answering media questions and posing for pictures, Kwok shared his love for the new collection: “As a watch lover, I really appreciate the HydroConquest’s ceramic insert bezel. These watches have a sporty silhouette and an elegant style, making them suitable for daily wear and appropriate for all occasions.”
The Watch Collection
In a case of form beautifully meeting function, the HydroConquest diver is now enhanced with coloured ceramic insert for the bezel. The colours are black, grey and blue, which was Kwok’s choice at the event
Ceramic is a popular material for sport watches because it is virtually scratch proof and retains its polished sheen for a very long time.
The HydroConquest features stainless steel case with screwed down crown and caseback, allowing it to boast a depth capability of up to 300m. The latest collection comprises a three-hand with calendar model in 41mm and 43mm, and a chronograph in 41mm. All are equipped with automatic ETA movements.
