Welcome to HEIRLOOM GALLERY (HG), Singapore . . .where watch collecting is an Art, a Lifestyle ©.

HG is a humble watch corner founded (in 2000) & managed by a watch lover, Shawn TAN for fellow collectors.  Operating from SINGAPORE & like Singapore, HG is a modest yet promising watch corner with so much to offer.    A qualified accountant & international tax consultant by training, Shawn is a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (FCCA / ACCA), United Kingdom & the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA).  An avid collector with penchant for all things vintage, especially rare vintage watches & clocks, Shawn started collecting at the age of 18 & this hobby quickly evolved into a significant alternative investment & eventually in year 2000 he left his tax consulting profession & turned this serious hobby into a business.  

The main reason for setting up HG is to bring special items to fellow collectors/dealers alike & at the same time keep our hobby going.   Some of the watches you see in our website originated from our private collection whilst others have been sourced & selected with much effort & care.  As collectors at heart, each item in our showcase has been handpicked, examined & curated as if it was for our own collection. You will notice that all our watches are of fine condition that every watch collector would ask for.  Call us perfectionists if you like but we take pride in bringing the great smile onto your face when you receive our items.  Our experience, expertise, excellent service & professionalism will also ensure that your shopping experience with us is a pleasant one, each & every time, simply because WE ARE COLLECTORS TOO !!

Buy from us with confidence as HG is a legally registered business entity & a licensed vintage watch dealer registered with the Singapore authorities.  We are also an ebay POWERSELLER with strong positive feedback. Our experience in worldwide shipments ensures that you receive the items you ordered safely, fast & cost effectively.
