What’s happening to our values? Show off by renting?

See the sentence “be the envy....”



https://cnalifestyle...04896?cid=fbcna
We reckon that you’re already an active participant in the sharing economy: You take a GrabShare to work, ride an ofo bike on the weekends and rent an Airbnb when you go on holiday.

It seems like you can lease or share practically anything these days – even a Rolex watch.

That’s right. Over the past 18 months, two subscription watch clubs – Acquired Time and TenTwo – have been offering watch rental services to horological enthusiasts, with a third, Specter One, set to launch this month.

For as little as S$6 a day, you could be sporting a Rolex Submariner on your wrist, to the envy of your coworkers and chums. At least for an entire month, until it comes time to swap out your Sub for a Cartier Santos.

This week, TenTwo will also launch a special rental collection comprising four Singapore micro-brands: Arcturus, BOLDR, Reverie and Vilhelm. All are startups founded by Singaporeans who are passionate about horology, and are known as micro-brands because they typically produce less than 500 timepieces per year.

Nothing wrong.. if there is a demand, why not?

We already have supercar rental, social escort rental, CNY partner rental, house rental, bridal car rental, private jet rental, why not watch rental? :D
 

What’s happening to our values? Show off by renting?
