Gardens by the Bay and Audemars Piguet Unveil Singapore’s Largest and Only Floral Clock in Celebration of Singapore’s 50th Year of Independence

As the nation gears up to celebrate Singapore’s Golden Jubilee this weekend, Gardens by the Bay and Audemars Piguet have come together to commemorate the occasion with the unveiling of Singapore’s only sizable public floral clock.

Blending timekeeping precision with botanical artistry, the Floral Clock was unveiled by Minister for National Development, Mr Khaw Boon Wan, together with Dr Kiat W. Tan, CEO of Gardens by the Bay, and Mr Oliviero Bottinelli, Member of the Board of Directors, Audemars Piguet Holding SA.
Displayed prominently in the Gardens, at the intersection between the cooled conservatoires and the Super tree Grove, the seven-metre-wide Floral Clock draws inspiration from the signature characteristics of Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak collection and fuses traditional and contemporary landscaping elements in its design. Featuring tropical plants with coloured foliage and flowers, its plant palette will be refreshed regularly for the public to enjoy.
The design of the Floral Clock draws inspiration from the signature characteristics of Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak collection:
- Octagonal bezel
- Hexagonal screws
- Tapisserie dial

The entire display fuses traditional and contemporary elements of landscaping. The formal, geometric plantings within the clock dial is balanced with a more informal, organic form of landscaping on the periphery.
