Executive Summary

Aug 2019
PROSPECTS
Increase in entry-level mechanical watches

Mechanical watches are still highly regarded as a status symbol in Singapore. Sales of watches have been growing, with the younger generation increasingly concerned about “accessorising” themselves.

Quartz digital watches declining

One key trend in watches is the waning demand for basic and mid digital watches. This is due to the high penetration rate of smartphones and, now, smart wearables to pair them with.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
Luxury watch brands remain the leaders

Rolex Singapore remains the leading player in Singapore, followed by Louis Vuitton Singapore. Luxury watches are doing well in Singapore as they are consistently perceived as an indicator of social status, attracting higher-income individuals to invest in timepieces.

E-commerce gains importance

In line with the popularisation of online retailing, spending on luxury goods is slowly shifting online too. The online channel for watches is undeniably gaining importance, and it is forecast that the trend will continue in the coming years.
