Laura Lan, a famous Chinese and Chinese critic of clocks and jewellery, the main author of ‘Large in Capricorn’, who specializes in the appreciation of mechanical watches, and also has unique insights in jewelry, life, culture and art. . Established ‘Attractive Studio’ to engage in professional copywriting, consulting, and lectures. Buying a watch is the same as choosing an object, and the choice is always the one that can last forever and be classic. Buying a watch is the same as choosing an object. We all seem to go for a lifetime. We always believe that the value of a watch can last a lifetime. Therefore, there are many choices. The style we want to choose will always be the one that can last forever and be classic. On the one hand, the brand must have a high reputation, on the other hand, it must have high quality and value. The most important thing is that the value must be certain. Be tall. 150,000 is the threshold to enter the high-end watch brand. Above this price, the first thing we must value is the reputation of the brand , followed by the permanence of design . These two points If you have already met the requirements, then it is not far from a good watch that suits you. When we want to find a women’s watch that is the most extreme among mechanical watches, how can we ignore the Patek Philippe with the nickname of the watch king? Patek Philippe, which has always lacked a signature classic female watch, released a new women’s watch design at the end of this year: it has its own exquisite chain technology, a case with a suitable thickness and thickness, and a movement with excellent appearance and performance. Coupled with the special ‘Dentelle lace inlaid’ diamond bezel, the two rows of staggered diamonds are more complex and sparkle than a claw-set fire. Steel, bezel-set diamond style, this price really wants to buy one. This is the style that a more heroic woman (I) would choose. The reason may be that the design is neutral, but the setting of diamonds does not lose the gorgeousness of other more flexible designs. You will be surprised when you wear it. It’s not as Man as you think. It even has a unique personality that combines sensibility and reason. Vacheron Constantin’s exquisite and sophisticated Geneva style, and the ancient seal-certified quality of Geneva, make this watch more like a sense of nobility like royal blood . It is believed that many women have long been familiar with the classic silhouette of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. The offshore series actually has more prominent lines on the case. The lines of the crown and the case on the same side are more determined than the Royal Oak. Kishi 37mm launches a variety of neon-like color styles, making this series, which is like a straight steel man, instantly become more tide, and more suitable for women in size. Audemars Piguet’s lofty watchmaking status does not need to repeat here, because the unique appearance and craftsmanship of the Royal Oak offshore has already explained everything. In a round design, Girard Perregaux’s horizontal oval cat-eye watch is unique. What I like most about cat’s eye design is that the curve is well-proportioned, and the horizontal ellipse is actually more slender. Girard Perregaux is also one of the all-round watchmaking brands. The quality of the movement is guaranteed, and this cat’s eye reflects the Girard Perregaux’s harmonious dial and case manufacturing process. Style. Of all my favorite watches, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso series must have a place. The different looks on both sides are presented by the method of flipping the case. The thrill of buying two watches at one price is almost impossible for other models. The Reverso One series is also a housekeeping skill of Jaeger-LeCoultre: the foundation of ultra-small mechanical movement, rose gold has a row of diamonds on the top and bottom, saying ‘cost-effective’ is a bit vulgar, but it really is. Bulgari is one of the few brands that started with jewellery but has excellent watchmaking skills. It has its own movement factory, parts factory, dial factory and parts manufacturing factory. Bulgari can do almost everything in the field of watches and clocks. Tubogas, a rare metalworking method wound with precious metals into flexible and smooth lines, is currently the only Bulgari to continue to introduce Tubogas technology into its watch design in the late 1940s, and became a Bulgari signature process. You said that Lvcea itself may not be eye-catching when it exists alone, but when it is put on, it is unstoppable. Some people think that these flash points are only because of their appearance design, but I think that the more important key is still excellent. The craft itself. There is no doubt that the constellation is one of the most classic watches in the minds of the public. Looking for a higher-level classic, the ultimate all-gold bracelet version of the constellation should also be selected for consideration. With a circle of drills, not many people can resist. I don’t know if you care about the so-called Omega Observatory certification. In short, the warranty period is extended to five years, and the high magnetic resistance performance and accuracy are strictly tested. — [Additional Selection] — A replica of a watch designed by Vacheron Constantin for the American market in 1921, no one can explain: why the crown was whimsically placed at that position, the dial was still tilted; more surprised The thing is, in the end, how to achieve such a difficult case finished product, Vacheron Constantin has never walked in the routine you imagined. You think it is only liked by old men. It is estimated that you do n’t understand the history nearly 300. Inside the brand of the year, there is a unique soul.

Classic Touring Rolex Ref.8171 ‘padellone’ Watch

For non-Italians, the nickname ‘Padellone’ is very beautiful, but its original meaning is ‘pan’, you must not think of it as the most beautiful watch in Rolex history )-Ref. 8171. This model was born in the early 1950s and has a diameter of 38 mm, which was considered a ‘big’ watch at the time. The diameter of Ref.8171 is 2mm larger than the diameter of Rolex Ref.6062 full calendar watch, and its case design is not streamlined.

   Rolex’s clever layout creates a balanced and elegant watch. The case is robust, the lugs are round, the bezel is flat and modest, the width is moderate, and the dial is beautiful. Using the pointer date display, the scale circle is set on the outer edge, so that the day and month display window and moon phase disk do not look so close to the center of the dial. Equipped with Calibre 101/2 self-winding movement, the small second hand is integrated in the moon phase display above the 6 o’clock position.

   The ‘Padellone’ watch has a relatively short production period and includes gold, rose gold and stainless steel. In addition to the short production period, the overall production of Rolex full-calendar watches is relatively small, which also makes this watch very collectable. The case design of Ref.6062 may be more advantageous and more in line with public perception of Rolex, but the size of Ref.8171 is also very unique. Ref.8171 is larger, which not only increases its rarity, but also improves its wearability in modern society. Of course, considering the value factor, Rolex Ref.8171 ‘Padellone’ watch will not be used for daily wear. (Photo / text watch home compiled by Xu Chaoyang)

Those Things About Gold Watch Interpretation Of Gold Watch Production Doubt Cloud

Although the gold watch is good, but the output is not high, especially the special models or special styles, consumers will inevitably experience the process of suffering and so on. Lange, famous for producing only precious metal watches, produces less than 5,000 watches each year. Its most representative LANGE 1 takes about 7 months to 1 year to manufacture parts, and the entire manufacturing process requires 365 steps.

    When asked whether the principle of ‘only precious metals’ is restricting the production of watches, Mr. Franck Giacobini, managing director of Lange Asia Pacific, said: ‘The reason why Lange limits production is because of the lengthy production time of watches, because each watch All are polished and assembled by watchmakers by hand. We are also the only watchmaker to reassemble the movement twice. Although this process is time-consuming, it is to ensure that the movement is perfectly assembled in terms of performance and aesthetics. In addition, our production is also limited by a shortage of qualified watchmakers (200 of the 500 employees in the watch factory) and production space. ‘
    Also in line with Mr. Franck Giacobini’s point of view is Nicholas Hofmann, H. Moser & Cie Regional Sales Director, who said, ‘Although the cost of precious metals continues to increase, we can still have liquidity to produce more watches. The real impact The biggest challenge of its own production is the production of movements. Moser does not buy from other sources like other brands, but produces, assembles and embeds the entire movement in-house, because this work requires highly qualified and experienced watchmakers. Meets the standard of traditional watch technology. H. Moser & Cie produces about 1200 watches per year. In the long run, we will inject more production equipment to increase output. As the sales of high-end watches continue to expand in the Asian market , Especially in China, Moser has a lot of room for development. ‘
    Compared with those brands that only make precious metal watches, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s product range is more diverse, and only precious metals are used in most limited and highly complex models. For example, the biplane series made of gold, the enamel painted minute repeater made of platinum, the Master Grande Tradition made of platinum, and other complication watches. And this has to make people think ‘Does this market strategy also have to do with guaranteeing output?’ In this regard, Zhang Ye, CEO of Jaeger-LeCoultre China, said: ‘I think only precious metal watches, sometimes Helpless move. Because the quantity and quality of the movement development also determine the output and whether to only make expensive watches. Large manufacturers like Jaeger-LeCoultre can produce their own movements, which determines that they can have more choices for product production. On the contrary, if the production capacity of the movement is limited, considering the related factors of cost and profit, it is a wise choice to choose to make precious metal watches. And we only choose limited editions to launch precious metal materials because we have our own considerations. The limited style must be a product with scarce technology and quality. There is also a high demand for the choice of material, and the use of precious metals has naturally become a common match. Although it has a certain relationship with the output, it is more for high quality. A sort of complication. ‘
    Indeed, the precious metal that makes gold watches is that it is not universally available. For example, some people only buy platinum models of well-known brands in order not to ‘follow the flow’, in their words, ‘platinum is generally limited.’ In addition, it is often seen that some people choose their own precious metal material because their skin is allergic to stainless steel. In general, people’s pursuit of precious metals largely depends on the subconscious desire for ‘self-predominance.’
