The Collector’s View: WatchTalk with Glenn Chiang – a follow-up

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

About a year ago, we interviewed Glenn Chiang, a fanatical watch collector based in Melbourne, Australia, on his horological journey. Thoughts of fine watches frequently occupy his mind as he continuously evaluates how to improve his already-excellent collection. We recently caught up with Glenn to see how his collection has evolved – a follow-up on the state of his collection, if you will. Knowing how passionate Glenn is for watches, we dared not underestimate how his collection (or taste) may have already changed, even in a single year. Before browsing further, we highly recommend that you read our first interview with Glenn to find out more about his origin story and collection from a year ago. We would like to thank Glenn for participating in this follow-up interview – and so without further ado:

The state of your collection during our interview last year was impressive, not to mention diverse – can you remind us of what was in your collection back then?

At that time, I had a Rolex Deepsea, Panerai GMT Ceramica 441, Hublot King Power Unico, Breguet La Tradition GMT, A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1, and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master GMT Tourbillon.


Jaeger-LeCoultre Master GMT Tourbillon. “For what many connoisseurs consider to be an “entry level” price point for this type of watch, you get a tourbillon, a dual time display and a day/night indicator, powered by one of the most impressive in-house movements developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre.” – Glenn Chiang.

What has changed since then?

  1. Thank you for the education on the Zeitwerk. I’ve always been partial to the white gold/platinum, but the yellow gold does give it a certain amount of formality.

    It’s almost been a year since this article was published. I wonder if Frank has bought any of the watches in his wishlist…

  2. Quite a collection however I just don’t get the Zeitwork, it’s a digital watch with old numbers, only my opinion of course.
