Founded in Le Locle in 1865 by a visionary watchmaker, Georges Favre-Jacot, the Manufacture Zenith earned swift recognition for the precision of its chronometers with which it has won 2,333 chronometry prizes in a century and a half of existence: an absolute record in terms of pocket watches, onboard timers and wristwatches. Having earned fame thanks to its legendary El Primero calibre – an integrated automatic column-wheel chronograph movement launched in 1969 and endowed with a high frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour that ensures measurements accurate to the nearest 1/10th of a second – the Manufacture Zenith has since developed over 600 movement variations. All Zenith watches are fitted with an in-house Zenith movement and are developed by the Manufacture in Le Locle. The latter currently stands at the exact spot where its founder built the first company workshop, thus physically embodying a continuity that is a rarity in itself.

Singapore has been described as a thriving cosmopolitan city that’s brimming with diversity, as well as a multiplicity of culture, language, arts and architecture. Just like other destinations, the city has her own unique set of offerings that sets her apart. “Uniquely Singapore” was designed to show the rest of the world what Singapore is really about – warm, enriching and unforgettable.
But we live in an ever-changing environment, an increasingly digitised one for that matter. For Singapore to continue to excite and appeal, she has to constantly evolve to present new and engaging travel experiences.
YourSingapore takes over from where “Uniquely Singapore” has left off. The focus is visitor-centricity, meaning the experiences are made wholesome and personal, drawing their allure from the breadth and richness of attractions many have grown to love here in Singapore.
Travellers will be enabled to design their own journeys – ones they can call their very own. Undoubtedly, each account will be different, but they will be personal and that is what will make them even more intriguing. A multitude of stories told through the eyes of travellers from all over the world, or sometimes even local residents. Some intimate, others adventurous. But each remains personal and truly unique. And that’s how we want it to be for everyone.
Take your time to explore yoursingapore.com and discover just what awaits you here. With a slew of new lifestyle picks, web tools, recommendations and even a holiday planner at your fingertips, you can decide how you want your Singapore holiday.
