With Chinese New Year (CNY) just around the corner, the frantic rush of getting all things new is building up. Which brings me to this - the perfect way to sneak in shopping for your Valentine under the guise of CNY shopping.

Despite being the newest member of the Red Army Watches family, Sophia is undaunted when approached to share her recommendations for Valentine’s Day. Having left her home country to settle in Singapore has brought its fair share of challenges, but Sophia has taken everything in her own stride. “This new experience has taken me out of my comfort zone and made me a more independent person,” she quipped. 

Sophia enjoys travelling. “The best part of travelling is getting to learn about different cultures and to experience their way of living. One of my most unforgettable trips was to Europe in 2015. I was fortunate to get to travel around Europe after completing a course in London.”

Which pairing from Red Army Watches would you pick for couples this Valentine’s Day?

“I would pick the Alexander Shorokhoff Alzenau Chronograph for him and the Alzenau Automatic for her. The accompanying alligator embossed straps nicely complements the white and silver textured dial of both watches. The Alzenau watches have a classy and luxurious look with a pop of colour injected by the blue hands and red coat of arms. Both are also limited editions; there are only 100 pieces of each model available worldwide. And the best part? The Chronograph and Automatic models at our Wisma Atria boutique are numbered 1/100 and 2/100 respectively! Talk about a fine pair.

I feel that the sportiness and masculine feel of the Alzenau Chronograph would appeal to him with the Alzenau Automatic for her being a perfect foil. The Alzenau series is simple, featuring the essential functions (time and date) for everyday use. To top it off, I can imagine the lady sneaking the Alzenau Chronograph from him on occasion when she is looking for an oversized statement watch to complete her look. That totally seals the deal for me!”
