Singapore, Singapore – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
In addition to creating a special Singapore Sling with limited-edition Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve Champagne and planning a slew of celebratory events at Raffles Hotels across the globe, the luxury hotel group has turned to another timeless symbol of good taste and style to mark its 125th anniversary: Jaeger-LeCoultre, whose own history goes back nearly 180 years. The watchmaker’s double-sided Reverso line is a classic, its timepieces personalized forever with an engraving on the reverse side of the case.
In honor of Raffles Hotels’ 125th anniversary, Jaeger-LeCoultre has created an exclusive engraving “Raffles Hotel 1887-2012 Singapore,” available on the gents’ Reverso Grande Taille and ladies’ Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin.
Guests staying at the Raffles in Singapore during September 2012, when the yearlong celebrations kick-off, can choose to join the commemorative spirit by booking the special Time To Celebrate package (about $40,063), which comes complete with a pair of these beautifully engraved, limited-edition Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watches.
The Time To Celebrate package includes two nights in the fabulous Presidential Suite, airport transfers, lashings of Anniversary Billecart-Salmon champagne, as well as two tickets to the 125th anniversary fancy dress dinner on Saturday, September 15, or dinner for two in the Bar & Billiard Room and afternoon tea in the Tiffin Room. This truly is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to celebrate the hotel that Somerset Maugham described as standing for “all the fables of the Exotic East,” to toast its illustrious heritage and to be a part of its promising future.
