This generous gesture has sparked comments by netizens, with many complimenting the gesture, and some asking whether the company was hiring.

The F&B chain operator celebrated its 14th anniversary on Monday with more than 1,300 employees and partners.

Paradise Group said that the celebrations at the Marina Bay Sands Grand Ballroom cost $2 million.

It added that those who received the Rolex watches were employees who had worked for the company for 10 years or more, regardless of position.

The recipients were among 330 employees who received five- to 15-year long-service awards, which also included gifts such as a Suisse gold bar.
