Strong Style Tasting Roger Dubuis Excalibur Limited Chronograph

Founded in 1995, Roger Dubuis is at the forefront of fine watchmaking with rigorous craftsmanship standards and bold and innovative designs. As the world’s only top-of-the-line watch maker with a full line of self-made movements, it has been imprinted in Geneva. With a perfectly integrated cutting-edge production unit, using cutting-edge technology that meets the most stringent standards of the Geneva Seal, each part of the watch (including the spring of the spring) is developed and produced by itself. Today, the Watch House will bring you a limited timepiece of Roger Dubuis Excalibur series. The official model of the watch is: RDDBEX0266.

   I really like Roger Dubuis’ basic chronograph movements (calibres RD 680 and RD681), eccentric micro-rotor, guide column, exquisite and beautiful. I think this RD 78 is better than the 680 and 681.

45 mm diameter round case

   This watch is made of stainless steel and enlarged to a circular case with a diameter of 45 mm. The case design also adopts the classic design of the Excalibur series, with a circular arc groove bezel. The large rough lines, the black dial and large white transferred Arabic numerals have a more distinct sense of fashion and sport, and the overall visual impact is extremely strong.

Crown protection setting

   The black ceramic gear crown is extremely polished and has a crown protection setting. The top is engraved with the logo of Roger Dubuis. In 2011, Roger Dubuis changed the logo of its own watch brand. This is before 2011, which is different from the current Roger Dubuis logo. Above the crown is a timing start button, which controls the start and stop of timing, and below the timing reset zero button, rectangular, easy to operate.

Adjustable folding clasp

   Black alligator leather strap, hand-stitched black silk thread, fine texture processing. It complements the body of the watch. The buckle is an adjustable folding buckle made of stainless steel, which is large and full. It is very bright after polishing. It is also engraved with Roger Dubuis logo and brand English in different directions. It feels like a lithograph in art class as a child.

Moderate side case thickness

   The thickness of the side case is moderate, and the brushed metal design shows a strong metal texture, which can also well cover the scratches generated during wearing. The circular beveled bezel looks more three-dimensional on the side.

Sancha lug design

   The lugs are the unique three-fork lugs of Roger Dubuis brand. They are brushed to make them distinctive and highly recognizable. The slender lugs fit more closely to the wrist and are very comfortable.

Dark black lacquered dial

   The dark black lacquered dial, large white transfer Roman numerals, peripheral white transfer scale and rhodium-plated insert design give a very strong visual impact. With the platinum sword shape, the minute hand is clear and clear. The chronograph second hand and the 45-minute chronograph minute dial at 3 o’clock on the dial adopt yellow hands to distinguish them. Small seconds at 9 o’clock.

RD 78 micro-rudder chronograph movement

   The bottom case is made of a whole piece of sapphire crystal, and the exquisite movement can be seen at a glance. Equipped with Roger Dubuis RD 78 self-winding chronograph movement with micro-rotor. Two-button column wheel chronograph, central chronograph hands, 45-minute counter at 3 o’clock, small seconds at 9 o’clock, hours and minutes. A total of 303 precision parts and 36 jewel bearings with a thickness of 5.8 mm can provide a power reserve of 42 hours. Like all Roger Dubuis movements, this self-winding movement is engraved with the prestigious Geneva seal.

   Summary: The consistently tough design style of the Excalibur series is unforgettable at first sight. This watch continues the series’ 45mm large dial, which is even more prominent. The thick large lines, black dial and bright yellow chronograph hands add a strong sporty atmosphere, which is very suitable for daily wear. This watch is limited to 280 pieces, and the current price of the watch is 225,000 RMB.

Wearing A Different Style Of Female Watches Recommended Daily

Although the diamond sparkling jewelry watch is stunning, it is not suitable for daily wear. It is better to choose a classic model that expresses personality. New materials, characteristic designs, low-key rose gold and mother-of-pearl can be selected Fashion elements, let Xiaobian recommend you five different styles of daily wear women’s watches!
Breguet Marine 8827
As the world’s smallest self-winding chronograph, the delicate and small Breguet Marine 8827 watch has always attracted everyone’s attention with its petite figure of 34.6mm. Today, this watch is also available in rose gold or white gold without gems, which is believed to be more popular with women.
The dial of the watch is made of natural mother-of-pearl, with hand-pain engraving. The watch is equipped with Breguet 18K yellow-gold hands with pinpoints and luminescence. At 6 o’clock, the small seconds hand and date are displayed. At 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock, they are a 30-minute totalizer and a 12-hour totalizer. Like other Breguet watches, each 8827 is individually numbered and Breguet’s signature. Its movement still uses the Breguet Cal.550 self-winding movement, equipped with a hand-engraved 18K gold oscillating weight, a linear fork lever escapement. Flat hairspring and so on. The movement is housed in an 18K white or rose gold case with a diameter of 34.60 mm and is water-resistant to 50 meters.
Chanel J12 Chromatic watch
Inspired by the technology of polishing sapphire with diamond powder, Chanel has developed a unique polishing technology to forge a new rich reflection effect. The silver-gray high-tech precision titanium ceramic strap looks like a flashing halo, subtly capturing the colors of the stormy sky and the northern lights. The high abrasion resistance of high-tech precision titanium ceramics is second only to sapphire, its gloss is more vivid than gold, and its chroma is richer than platinum. The movement contains a new realm of traditional metal processing technology and innovative particle technology owned by the watch factory in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The high-tech precision titanium ceramics combined with titanium have extremely high wear resistance, which is very suitable for daily wear.
Hublot Big Bang Leopard Rose Gold Watch

Vacheron Constantin Presents The Chinese Zodiac-year Of The Monkey Watch

In order to continue the fiery exchange between brands and collectors and fine watchmaking enthusiasts, Vacheron Constantin presents the latest Métiers d’Art master é The Legend of the Chinese Zodiac series Praise-Year of the Monkey. February 8, 2016 is the Chinese Spring Festival, when the year of the sheep will be welcomed to usher in the year of the monkey. 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. 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 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.

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!

【comment】
    The slenderness of the American tanks, the elegance of the French tanks, and the regularity of the Chinese tanks. When the law encounters art, the mind will become trusted. As a result, many unique shapes such as the ‘tank collision’ of the dial, the square tank with the lateral stretching of the dial, and the asymmetrical tank with ‘twisted stretching’ appeared in the sequence of the Cartier watch tank family. 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. For example, the hour marker at 9 o’clock is also marked with ’99’ in black printing and gold engraving, referring to 9 o’clock. At the same time, it also means 1999 when Macau returned to the motherland.
