Seiko gold watch that belonged to the late Sinnathamby Rajaratnam

The late Mr. Rajaratnam, a co-founder of the People’s Action Party, was the first Foreign Affairs Minister after Singapore gained independence and the former Second Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Labour and Culture. He was often hailed for his vision of multi-racialism in Singapore, as reflected by the line, "one united people, regardless of race, language or religion" in the national pledge he drafted together with former Minister of Education, Mr. Ong Pang Boon in 1966.
