Three days ago Cartier Time Art opened in Singapore. An amazing collection of 159 watches and clocks are on display at the lotus-shaped Art Science Museum in Marina Bay Sands until Feb 12, 2012.
Conceived by award-winning designer Tokujin Yoshioka, Cartier Time Art spans the company's history as a watchmaker and includes the earliest known Cartier timepiece, a chatelaine watch dating from 1874.

The set-up for the opening party on Dec 13
The books at the gift shop - the massive red book covers vintage Cartier timepieces and is wonderfully comprehensive but incredibly expensive ($500) and heavy (20 lbs) such that it's almost impractical; the white and black Nadelhoffer book is an excellent history of Cartier covering everything; unfortunately the book for the Time Art exhibition is disappointing in its content and illustrations
This report covers the entire exhibition, with each part of the report covering one of the six rooms of the show.
All photos were taken on the morning before the press conference hence the empty galleries. I was very fortunate to be amongst the first people in the world to see this fantastic show.
