The two latest works launched on this occasion are limited to twelve, both engraved with the Geneva mark, highlighting the excellence of the 2460 G4 movement. Technical performance and the endless elegance of Vacheron Constantin’s arts and crafts.

Paper-cutting technology, the intersection of Eastern and Western cultures
Since 1845, Vacheron Constantin has established a special friendship with China. The Chinese paper-cut art is similar to the famous Scherenschnitt in Swiss culture. This craftsmanship has also become the highlight of Vacheron Constantin’s Métiers d’ Art master é The Legend of the Chinese Zodiac series. With the cooperation of master sculptors and enamel masters, the series has been given a new interpretation.

Integration of many arts and crafts
The leaf decorative pattern on the dial is derived from the classic Chinese pattern, carved directly on the gold dial. The pattern is semi-embedded and carefully combined through reliefs of different depths to create a deep depth effect. The highlighted plants seem to be suspended above the dial. The integration of many arts and crafts through the leaves The decorative patterns on the dial are derived from classic Chinese patterns and carved directly on the gold dial.

This is followed by the Great Fire Enamel stage. The Daming fire enamel craftsmanship originated in Geneva, and so far only a few artisans are proficient. By using several layers of enamel glaze, the enamel master further highlights the visual tension of the blue or bronze dial. When the enamel dial is fired at 800 to 900 degrees Celsius, the color of the glaze and the reaction generated by the firing must be strictly controlled, which requires the master of enamel to have a professional inference ability, and this ability takes several years to fully master. The hand-carved platinum or gold monkey motif is delicately set in the center of the dial.

Movement that reserves ample space for artistic creation
The 2460 G4 movement provides an ingenious and ideal stage for the art deco design of the watch, making the pattern in the center of the dial the protagonist. The dial has no hands to display the time, and the hour, minute, day of the week and date are displayed through four display windows. The first two displays are sliding, and the last two are skipped. This original display is designed and produced by Vacheron Constantin, which perfectly shows the brand’s classic and timeless excellence. Through the transparent sapphire crystal case back on the back of the platinum or pink gold case, you can clearly appreciate the 22K gold pendant in the movement. The pendant is decorated with the Maltese cross pattern of the brand’s historic symbol, which shows the superb watchmaking skills Heritage. All parts are finely polished to meet the exacting requirements of the Geneva mark, and Vacheron Constantin is the most faithful representative of this certification.

Audemars Piguet And Rm Withdraw From The Geneva Watch Fair, Where Will I Buy New Watches In The Future?

Following the end of July, the Swatch Group announced its withdrawal from next year’s Basel Watch & Jewellery Show. Two days later, there were heavy news. AP (Audemars Piguet) and RM (Richard Mille) also announced that from 2020 Since the beginning of the year, exit SIHH Geneva Haute Horlogerie. AP mentioned in its official statement that 2019 will be the last time Audemars Piguet will participate in the SIHH Geneva Haute Horlogerie Show, ending its 19-year partnership. The family-owned company also specifically mentioned that in the future, it hopes to continue to innovate business models and create more direct communication with guests around the world. RM’s attitude is also very sincere and regrets the end of the cooperation, but also clearly mentions that ‘continuing to participate’ is no longer in line with the brand’s exclusive and selected distribution strategy. In fact, for most melon-eating consumers (especially rabbit fans who spend money without blinking), industry events such as exhibitions do not pay much attention. But we need to think about where we will get new product information in the future. Let’s start with a history of watch exhibitions. At present, the two major exhibitions in the watch industry are SIHH in January-Geneva Fine Watch Salon (with Richemont Group as the main player), and Baselworld in March-Basel Watch and Jewellery Exhibition ( The Swatch Group has a lot of people, Rolex and Patek Philippe are sitting at the same time, of course, there are several LVMH bosses). Among them, the Basel exhibition has been through for hundreds of years and has witnessed the changes of the times. In fact, at the earliest, the bezel had only one Basel exhibition, and everyone had to travel thousands of miles to display new products. In 1991, Cartier left for Geneva and established SIHH. But at that time, Richemont Group did not have so many hard luxury brands, only old employees Dunhill and Montblanc accompanied Cartier to fight. It can be said that afterwards, the Richemont Group, which started as a tobacco business, relied on the money it earned and bought one brand after another to have today’s strong strength. For example, in 1996, the Swiss brand Vacheron Constantin was included in Richemont; in 1997, the Italian brand Panerai joined; in 2000, three brands were acquired in one go, Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC and Lange; in 2001, the French jewellery brand Van Clevia was acquired. Bao (finished the shares in 3 times); in 2008, it acquired the independent watch brand Roger Dubuis (also completed in 3 years) … Today Richemont is a big player in the watch industry, and SIHH also attracted Many non-group brands joined, as well as those just moved from Basel, such as Hermès. There are 35 brands participating this year, an increase of 6 from 2017. Of the 18 brands with independent booths, 11 are from Richemont Group, 2 are from Kering Group (Athens and Girard Perregaux), and 5 are independent brands (including AP and RM who have announced their withdrawals). The classic rabbits of Athens and Girard Perregaux remembered that their first SIHH trip was in 2008. This year was a watershed year. In the past, Basel and SIHH were held next to each other. Everyone often went to Switzerland to get two exhibitions. , But since 2009, you have to run twice. Although some dealers complained that the cost was high, such a day also passed 10 years later. Just a step-by-step life will be broken after all, because times are changing, is a long-accustomed way still necessary, and it is often the market that educates us. Originally, the brand change was normal. For example, when the rabbit was in SIHH in 2008, Dunhill and Ralph Lauren could be seen. However, the subsequent withdrawal of the two brands just proved that the main business was not here, and the demand for watch exhibitions was not so urgent. This year’s ups and downs originated from Swatch Group, the biggest gold medalist at the Basel Show. When Hayek announced his withdrawal, it seemed to detonate a time bomb. At this moment, AP’s and RM’s statements naturally make everyone feel that the situation is more serious. But in fact, such a choice is understandable. In the big picture, the model of the exhibition still stands decades or even a hundred years ago, but in today’s digital age, there are too many ways for everyone to display new products. In addition, the cost of the watch exhibition is too big. The rabbits had been eight times before. The entire Swatch Group spent 430 million Swiss francs at the Basel exhibition (this money can do a lot if saved). Leaving aside money, especially for independent brands that have enjoyed a good market in recent years, the existence of exhibitions is indeed a bit confusing. For example, RM, billionaires’ admission tickets, small quantity and high unit price, the reliance on exhibitions is very small. Most of the time, sales with rich customer resources can complete the performance. After all, this is a product in a circle culture (the pursuit of star athletes and rich second generations), and it no longer depends on conventional publicity and promotion models. The same is true of AP. In recent years, explosive models have been frequently launched. Young people have chased and the explosive power of word of mouth is very strong. Coupled with the taste of social media communication (online sales, etc.), this family business naturally wants more plans to break the norm. In addition, there are rumors that a strong brand of jewelry also intends to withdraw. This is a reasonable adjustment based on the brand’s own needs. Physical sales are important, but they are not the only way. At the same time, there are more options than physical exhibitions. In fact, Rabbit guessed that in the past two years, there will still be brands (especially some brands that are positioned in the high-end market but want to open their popularity) who are interested in joining SIHH to get greater display opportunities. New people come to old people, this is the law of the market. Do n’t worry about where we should go to see the brand new models in the future. The head of a brand of the Swatch Group privately told Rabbit that their biggest possibility is to launch new products in the Asian market directly in China (compared to the exhibition fee of Basel, Too much cheaper), direct and close to consumers. Coupled with official digital channels, fans can always receive new information about their favorite brands. With money in your pocket, there is nothing to worry about. Forms change, but the market is eternal. The gossip rabbit is only original, welcome to repost!

This asymmetric parallelogram ‘tank’ was created by Cartier to celebrate Macau’s return to China. As a special edition, Cartier added many monumental elements to the overall design of the watch.

Men’s Full-bodied Historical Flavor Chopard 161289-5001 Men’s Watch

Chopard watches come from a watchmaking family with a history of more than 140 years. It is also infused with a strong artistic flavor under the name of ‘Chopin’. Chopard watches are as famous in the world of watchmaking as Francesco Chopin in the history of world music. Today, I will bring you a very practical and characteristic Chopard watch, its model is 161289-5001.
 The Chopard 161289-5001 watch follows the tradition in appearance. The round case, delicate lugs and simple crown are all so standard, but its taste is not here, but on the dial. Chopard brand watches currently have a large number of watches, the font on the logo are artistic fonts, highlighting its modernist and elegant style, and this watch, the use of regular ordinary font design logo, clear and powerful, minimalist, with a dignified attitude Describe its historical charm.

The time scale is also showing the classic and timeless style. The black Roman font design is neatly and elegantly arranged on the surface of the dial, forming a sharp color difference with the white dial. The classic black and white is full. In addition, the design of the small second dial is also for the classic aftertaste. In the original timepiece, the second, minute and hour hands were independent small dials. Due to the inconvenient reading time, all three hands were moved to the center of the dial, and the small seconds Pan is the best testimony of that era. The small seconds dial adopts the orbital design, and the iconic element of the industrial era-the track finish, highlights the historical charm.
The design of the dial alone is ingenious, and this model also uses a full-color porcelain surface to make the dial, making the dial white more pure.
The transparent design also adds a lot of color to the appearance. Most fans of mechanical watches have a special preference for the movement. They understand the value and meaning of the movement. Of course, the brand also understands it. Therefore, the transparent design is the market and The product of the combination of brands, such a design can be applied to the classic style, it can not fit.
In general, the appearance of this watch is simple, full-bodied, and worthy of careful taste.
 As a classic watch, the 161289-5001 watch pays more attention to the presentation of watchmaking tradition and craftsmanship, and in terms of function, pays attention to the needs of daily wear.
This watch has a calendar display function at 3 o’clock, which is more intuitive and specific than the pointer design. Simple operation, stable performance, and convenient reading are the pursuit of watchmakers, and calendar display is one of their masterpieces. The calendar also has a variety of expressions. According to the display form, it can be divided into two types: window type and pointer type. According to its internal structure, it can be divided into flyback retrograde, fast jump, and instant jump. The calendar may seem simple, but Need precise mechanical control, different structures, so that the calendar can have different performance, for the watchmaker, the development of different structures, is it an innovative demand? Or the ultimate pursuit?
In addition to the calendar function, it also has a small seconds function. Strictly speaking, it should not be a function. Personally, it can simplify the movement of the movement, reduce the thickness of the movement, save the movement kinetic energy without affecting the normal running time. It is not so much a simple structure as a tasteful function. It also has a water resistance of 30 meters.

 Since Chopard officially launched its completely independently designed, developed and produced movements in 1996, it has received a higher degree of recognition than previous years. This also proves that Chopard has the ability to completely manufacture its own movements. By 2012, Chopard was in At the Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show, a completely new self-made Cal.01.04-c movement is launched again. It is the third product manufactured by the brand’s Fleurier Ebauches watch factory and applied to 161289-5001 watches. The thickness of this movement is 4.95 mm. As a movement with automatic winding movement and calendar module, it is not too thick. On the contrary, this thickness can give him more room to play, and the 60-hour power reserve is still very high. Satisfactory. Of course, in addition to these, it also adjusts the oscillation system in the most important part of the movement. The balance spring uses a flat coil balance spring to improve isochronism. The balance wheel is equipped with four spokes and has a fine adjustment device, which can perform double adjustment.
 In general, the Chopard 161289-5001 watch combines the brand’s mellow historical charm, exquisite appearance design, and the brand’s home-made movement into one. It is a watch worthy of taste. The white porcelain dial is full and soft. Compared with lacquer, Not so glare. The design of the dial is the characteristic of this watch. The black and white classic tone is matched with the gold case. The overall tone highlights the classic charm. At the same time, this watch uses the brand’s own 01.04-c self-winding mechanical movement, which is one of the few homemade movements under the brand. This watch is also the first in this series to carry this movement. Watch.
The current domestic price of this watch is about 80,000 yuan, which is not necessarily a good value, but it must be good value for money.

Visit Swiss National Treasure Master Of Watchmaking Crafts Blancpain And Cultural Ambassador Liang Wendao Release A New Theme Short Film ‘carpenter • Artisan’

The rolling Jurassic Mountains, the lush old woods, the shining three sides of the lake, and the scattered villages and farms-you are overlooking the Vallée de Joux, known as the ‘Clock Valley’ .

   As the center of the Swiss watchmaking industry, it is quiet and indifferent. Here, time can be perceptually perceived by the mind; time can also be seen and heard on the wrist by the master’s hand.

   Deep down into the valley and heading to Le Brassus, one of the 10 villages and towns, you will find the world’s oldest watch brand, Blancpain’s large and complex watchmaking workshop. Pushing the door open, the great masters are immersed in it, are polishing the extremely precise movement, or do their utmost to the tedious and delicate, to decorate the watch with traditional arts and crafts. For nearly 300 years, Blancpain watchmakers have worked tirelessly in the workshop. The complex functions of high-end mechanical watches, such as Carloso, Tourbillon, Minute Repeater, Chinese calendar, etc., are all forged here. Complex crafts such as gold carving, enamel, damascus gold inlay, and red copper also converge under the same roof, so Blancpain has become one of the few watchmaking brands that can complete all the above processes independently.

   ‘Why is this environment able to breed such a watchmaking industry? Why is it that such a herdsman, farmer’s family can have such a craftsman?’ Blancpain Cultural Ambassador Liang Wendao visited the three Swiss Blancpains with questions. Master of national treasure watchmaking craftsman, discover the story of craftsmanship with us.

Enamel Ingenuity: One must master the entire process of making

   ‘At Blancpain, we don’t pursue the production of large-scale enamel works, we only make extremely good works.’
             ——Master of Enamel at Blancpain’s Grand Watchmaking Workshop, Christophe Bernardot

   Christoph Bernardo has been fond of art since he was a child. When he was a child, he used to draw with colored pencils and then cut out the three-dimensional effect with scissors. Later, he began to study how to shrink a large painting onto the dial. And still vividly convey the theme of the painting.

   Unlike many technicians who buy ready-made enamels today, Christophe believes that a good enameler should be able to master the entire firing process. So he spent many years learning how to start from the raw materials and complete the entire process of enamel production. Only by doing so himself, he knew how to match enamel with different colors and structures, and finally achieve his desired effect.

   Christoph appreciated the expression of Chinese painting very much. In order to reproduce the artistic conception of Chinese painting on the dial, he made many attempts with diluted enamel. Regardless of the individual characteristics of each pigment, he must finish the firing work on the easily broken dial at one time. With a little care, everything must be repeated. This is the skill and patience of the enamelist. The biggest challenge.

 Movement • Ingenuity: Complex and Passionate

   ‘Now we have almost every possible knowledge of time, which is the achievement and pride of being a watchmaker.’
             ——Mustapha Ahouani, master watchmaker of Blancpain’s Grand Complex Watchmaking Workshop

   Mustafa Avani developed his interest in watches since his childhood. At that time, his father had several unusable watches. He took these watches for repairs and entertainment, compared their parts with each other, and understood How they fit together. After coming to Blancpain, he was even more like a fish, because Blancpain has many different series and many different complex movements, which just meet his desire to continuously explore the mysteries of watchmaking.

   Mustafa made no secret of his love for Blancpain, saying, ‘I like Blancpain, and I love the brand I work for.’ Because Blancpain is a long-established hand workshop where he can interact with A group of colleagues who love watchmaking like him, starting from each small part, designing the movement, manufacturing the movement, and also customizing the movement according to customer needs.

   In addition to making various existing complex functions, Blancpain continues to develop new movements every year, such as the world’s unparalleled Chinese calendar, which simultaneously walks according to the lunar and solar calendars, and can indicate the five elements of gold, wood, water, fire and soil, and Twelve hours, the zodiac and so on. As one of the artisans involved in the production, Mustafa is very proud because this means that Blancpain’s watch works now include almost all possible knowledge of time.

 Gold carving • Ingenuity: Before you start, think carefully

   ‘You must know the thickness of each small piece of engraving material, so as to ensure that the carved things are not too thick, so that the watchmaker can put the hands on and close the watch cover.’
           ——Marie Laure Tarbouriech, the master of gold sculpture in Blancpain’s Grand Complex Watchmaking Workshop

   Mary-Lorry Taburi is the fourth of three generations in the engraving industry, and the oldest of the tools she used was left to her by her grandfather. Of course, what is more important to Mary’s inheritance is the craftsman’s spirit-full attention, thoughtfulness, and grasp of the details.

   Watch sculptors need great patience and meticulousness. They often spend weeks or even months to carve a work. It is conceivable that if an error occurs in the process, the entire work will be abandoned. One of the secrets of not making mistakes is to maintain an unhurried rhythm when carving. Although it was a job ‘as thin as ice’, Mary was so relaxed. As the rare winner of the ‘Best French Crafts’ title, the Blancpain gold sculpture workshop led by Mary can scribe the amazing world between square inches, and can customize the different civilizations of the world according to customer needs The representative image is like a museum collection on your wrist.

   The craftsmen of Blancpain’s large and complex watchmaking workshops are doing things every day, every year and every year, which are almost repetitive and subtle. But only they know that they are taking every step so hard, and they are constantly pursuing innovation and excellence. Such a temperament and spirit embodied in them, just like the entire Jura Mountains and valleys, permeates a long, natural and vital historical atmosphere in nature. And such ingenuity will be passed down from generation to generation in the hands of the craftsmen.
