“I FEEL THE NEED – THE NEED FOR SPEED!” – MAVERICK, TOP GUN (1986)

Swiss Watch Gallery presents the fifth edition of Malaysia’s premier contemporary watchmaking showcase, Time Kulture: Revolution. This year, the showcase is dedicated to man’s long-time obsession with speed. From motorsports to air racing, watches and mean machines with wheels and wings make a winning combination, pushing boundaries in engineering, performance, innovation and precision. It is man’s obsession with speed that has inspired many a watchmaker’s pursuit of high precision and accuracy. To help us celebrate, we enlisted the help of some very young and dynamic personalities whose own obsession with speed have steered them towards high-velocity careers and ambition.
