Standing The Test of Time 鼎立于时间洪流


The Woo Hing Brothers Rolex Boutique in Penang, whose origin dates back to 1950s, remains a preferred and trusted choice amongst customers when it comes to purchasing the world-renowned brand’s luxurious and popular timepieces.

Located at the intersection of Campbell Street and Cintra Street in the heart of George Town, it continues to thrive under the dynamic leadership of the father and son team, Austen and Kevin Wong.

The present-day modern market is currently dominated by large retailers and online stores and such family businesses are a rarity. But they have been able to punch above their weight, going head to head with the bigger entities by building up customer loyalty with an ethical and sincere heart approach and treating each and every customer as a most important one.

“When it comes to buying and servicing a Rolex watch, we are privileged to be the first choice because customers know the level of service expected from us.”

“The world has become very connected, so information about watches and specifications are readily available online. People come to us more informed, and have a good idea of what they want.”

“Our role is to help them understand what they are buying, guide their choices and make those difficult decisions easier,” said the younger Wong, who worked as a human resources consultant in Melbourne until 2014, when he decided to join the family business.

Austen, who was delighted with his son’s decision to come on board, said, “After devoting so many years to this business, it’s fantastic knowing there’s someone in the family to carry it further.”

“It’s a new era of engaging with customers. While we frequently discuss on strategy and operations, he is the one who ultimately calls the shots now. The foundations have been laid for his gradual takeover.”

And it is an experience that Kevin finds highly satisfying. He added, “Having the privilege to participate in a family business such as this is rare. We both spend a lot of time at work finding ways to improve processes, and when certain opportunities appear we share ideas on how to make it work.”

Inside the newly renovated Woo Hing Rolex Boutique, visitors are enveloped in an atmosphere inspired by water and the sea. This evokes the essence of Rolex, which in 1926, invented the Oyster, the world’s first waterproof wristwatch.

A wall of illuminated laser-etched Aqua glass with a gently undulating wave motif provides a focal point, while the gold-effect Rolex crown, an iconic symbol of the brand, decorates the entrance, walls, and display cases. Adding further sophistication are the polished walnut wood cabinets, bronze detailing and Crema Marfil marble floor. It all comes together to create a customer experience that is as luxurious as the watches on display.

Kevin also points to their unparalleled watch expertise and after-sales service, cultivated over six decades of working with Rolex, as factors in their longevity.

“当涉及到购买和维修劳力士手表时,我们有幸成为第一选择,因为我们的服务水平绝对能满足客户需求。” Kevin自豪的说。

Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3


RM Sotheby’s 2017 auction is featuring one of the most influenctial pre-war racing cars – a historic Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3. As the first major European classic car event of the new year, Rétromobile week in February 2017 – held at the Place Vauban in Paris – will also host a number of high-profile classic car auctions. And you have guessed right, its highlight is a 1934 Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3.

The post-war, 1954 Osca MT4 1500, once a participant of the minacious Carrera Panamericana – has also gone under the hammer and was predicted to fall somewhere between €975,000- €1,175,000. This specific example boasted cutting-edge technology, being the first twin ignition 1500 to roll off the Bologna production line.

The P3 represented a shift in design emphasis for period Grand Prix cars, adopting the narrower ‘slipper’ bodystyle dispensing of the second seat for ride-in mechanics to shave weight. The open-wheeled racer claimed victory on home soil at Monza, followed by a brace of podium lock-outs at the French and German Gran Prixs during the 1931 season.



2017 年 RM Sotheby’s 集中火力的汽车拍卖会,其中一辆最具影响力的战前赛车 -历史悠久的阿尔法罗密欧 (Alfa Romeo) Tipo B P3 将是焦点之一。而作为新一年欧洲经典车型的首个主要活动,Rétromobile week 在巴黎沃邦广场 (Place Vauban) 举行,也具备一些高格调经典汽车拍卖。而且你猜对了,它的亮点是1934年阿尔法罗密欧 Tipo B P3。

直至战后,1954 Osca MT4 1500 曾经是墨西哥经典 Carrera Panamericana 比赛的无敌参加者,报价是在97万5000到117万5000欧元之间。这一特殊的例子展示了尖端技术,也是首个在博洛尼亚生产线上生产的第一个双点火装置1500。
