How long is fifty years?

Half a century. A blink of an eye.

It all started with my first apprenticeship at a watch shop in Petaling Street, at the age of 15. Fascinated by the beauty and sophistication of watches, I dove into the world of watchmaking and never looked back.

In 1972, WATATIME was established.

Initially, it was just a small stall in Chow Kit. The next bold move however, started a new chapter for the company – we relocated to the then newly opened shopping mall, Sungei Wang Plaza. It was the golden era of Sungei Wang Plaza, during which WATATIME had the chance to gain experience and clientele and gradually expanded to include more and more major Swiss brands. Soon, we were ready for more. The second branch was opened, followed by the third, and the rest, as they say, was history.

Fifty years flew by in the blink of an eye. Throughout our journey, we have been blessed with the support and trust of many, as well as a great team who have stood by us through thick and thin.

Today, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of our company. We are humbly grateful for all your support, and kudos to our team for their hard work! With half a century of experience as our solid foundation, may our vessel sail on strong and far, and keep achieving new heights for our customers!

WATATIME started with just one humble shop back in 1972. However, with great perseverance, hard work and determination, my father Mr Tham Sze Wah turned WATATIME into a household name in Malaysia.

I’m so proud of WATATIME’s achievements and I take this opportunity to say thank you to all my customers for their support. My thanks also to my brand principals who always had the confidence and trust in us and to my dedicated team as well as former teammates who contributed in making WATATIME what it is today.

Rest assured WATATIME will continue to innovate to be better and you can expect a more exciting and memorable retail experience with us.

I wish everyone good health and many more great years ahead. Thank you!

Deputy Managing Director

WATATIME is 8 years older than me! Growing up, my siblings and myself were always surrounded by clocks and watches. Every weekend we would hang out in shopping malls tagging along my father while he was supervising his stores.

In a blink of an eye, fifty years have gone by, WATATIME has grown to a household name in Malaysia serving Malaysians and tourists with specially curated premium and luxury watches.

On this very auspicious occasion of the 50th anniversary of WATATIME, I have decided to join the family business to contribute and to serve. It is a mission for us to continue growing the legacy built by my father, to take it to the next level, to continue serving our customers, and to continue cherishing our relationship with our long time business partners.

I would like to thank everyone in WATATIME whom have worked tirelessly and contributed to building WATATIME to be what it is today.

Looking forward to many more exciting years ahead for WATATIME, cheers!

Heartiest congratulations to WATATIME! It is indeed a remarkable milestone achievement by WATATIME. I’m truly honored to be part of WATATIME family and to celebrate its 50th Golden Jubilee Anniversary together.

For many years WATATIME is known for retailing premium watches and it has long established a harmonious link with all of its customers. In fact, some have grown to become our very good friends. I have been a long loyal fan of WATATIME since before joining the team and after I joined the company, I learned the one simple fact  that WATATIME has grown to be a well trusted name in the Malaysian watch trade industry. Today, together with our team of passionate retail staff, I believe customers and friends will have many more years of happy moments at WATATIME shops.

I take the opportunity here to wish everyone good health and many happy returns.

Thank you!
