Parmigiani Plays The Perfect Tribute To Brazilian Music

Pershing Samba Madeira pays tribute to Brazil with wood inlay craftsmanship

Parmigiani’s elegant and dynamic Pershing collection adds another masterpiece-Pershing Samba Madeira: 的 It was born to add an extraordinary work to the fine watchmaking palace-in the name of Parmigiani, decorated with With bright colors and lively samba rhythms, Pershing Samba Madeira expresses his respect and praise for the country of Brazil.

To pay tribute to the music tradition of a country through a watch, watchmakers often just display a few elements on the dial that represent musical characteristics. This is also the most common practice. However, Parmigiani in Fleurier was not content to do just such a superficial article-they completely built the entire watch into an instrument. The Pershing Samba Madeira complication watch depicts a guitar in close-up. The soundhole of the guitar and the tourbillon cage exactly match the appearance and size, which is exquisite. The charming escapement rotates non-stop in the soundhole of the guitar. This guitar is given life and uses the time to play endless movements perfectly.

At a closer look, the dial actually uses a wood inlay craftsmanship process, showing a beautiful ‘mural’ -like the picture, delicate and colorful, of which the fun can only be truly understood by using a magnifying glass. The wood inlay is a traditional craft. The main process is to first outline and cut out the required inlaid wood chips, and then assemble these tiny wood chips, like a mosaic puzzle, to finally show an extremely delicate and delicate decorative effect. The entire process is completely completed by hand. According to the design draft, each piece of wood is custom-formed after carving, including 6 hair-like guitar strings.

In January 2013, Parmigiani launched two tourbillon watches with the same musical theme. They are Tonda Woodrock and Tonda Woodstock, both of which use wood inlay craftsmanship to present guitar patterns, showing the British flag and the American Stars and Stripes respectively, A tribute to British and American rock music. The Pershing Samba Madeira watch is praised by Brazil, so the background pattern of the guitar is also like the Brazilian flag:  Brazil’s national motto “Ordem e Progresso” across the starry planet;  colors on the Brazilian flag:  green, yellow and dark blue spread throughout the dial wall and Hermes strap, exuding the beautiful passion of Brazil.

This unique watch has a 192-hour power reserve, and its PF510 movement is composed of more than 237 parts, all of which are hand-finished using the purest traditional watchmaking techniques. The back of the movement features superb chamfering, the bridge is decorated with exquisite Geneva ripples, and the superb craftsmanship of the entire watch is also used to the utmost.

The elegant titanium case and the 18K rose gold bezel is in perfect contrast, showing a harmonious balance of beauty. The Pershing Samba Madeira watch is limited to one and comes with a watch display case decorated with hand-painted patterns in the colors of the Brazilian flag.

Parmigiani has been a partner of the Brazilian Football Confederation since 2011. The release of Pershing Samba Madeira once again confirms Parmigioni’s relationship with Brazil and Parmigioni’s love for music-this The love of cultural bridges.

Casio Edifice Men’s Precision Pursuit

At the 39th Basel International Watch Fair, Casio’s EDIFICE booth was particularly noticeable. EDIFICE watches are inspired by motorsports in many places, and the dynamic business style that has always been upheld makes every EDIFICE watch full of agility and wisdom.

The Strictest New Policy In History! Rolex Officials Will Crack Down On New Watch Reselling Behavior!

Official Rolex official recently pushed a memo to authorized dealers. Starting November 2, 2018, in order to strengthen compliant sales and avoid improper sales, Rolex will implement the following four new policies: 1. Remove all protective films on the new watch, including the case, strap, bezel, rear Cover position. 2. Adjust the strap length to fit the individual wrist size. 3. The insurance card will fill in the consumer’s personal name and sales date. If the consumer is unwilling to fill in the name due to privacy needs, the insurance card will also fill in the ‘XXXX’ code to ensure that no blank space can be added for later writing and alteration. 4. Under no circumstances should the plastic shipping box be delivered to the end consumer. In April of this year, Rolex USA has issued similar sales measures, as follows: 1. Authorized dealers can only sell watches to consumers in stores. 2. Authorized dealers must confirm that the warranty card is registered when delivering the watch to consumers, and ‘blank cards’ must not be issued. 3. When the authorized dealer delivers the watch to consumers, the protective film on the watch must be removed. 4. If the watch is purchased in advance as a gift, the authorized dealer needs to keep the warranty card. By comparison, it can be clearly found that this November’s policy is stricter, with some qualifiers such as ‘No excepation without exception’, ‘All’, ‘No circumstances never’ and even more specific. Operation measures. At the same time, the scope of implementation is no longer limited to the United States. At present, Taiwan Province has also flowed out relevant sales rules, and yesterday, dealers in mainland China also received related pushes. It can be said that this time, no matter from the intensity and the scope of implementation, this is undoubtedly the strictest new policy in history. After 2000, the sales of Swiss watches entered a golden age, especially in mainland China, as long as the watches are selling well. After the financial crisis broke out in 2008, and the tide of hot sales receded, consumers found that many watch brands were actually swimming naked. Rolex still wins consumer preferences due to its stability and reliability. When the overall market conditions are not good, many brands have chosen to reduce prices, but Rolex made a unique way to announce the extension of the warranty period to 5 years in 2015, which attracted more cousins ​​to buy. ‘Value determines price, and supply and demand affect price.’ As a precision timing instrument, mechanical watches cannot increase production in a short time without a strict production plan, advanced equipment and skilled assembly personnel. Faced with the sudden surge in demand, Rolex’s annual output of about 800,000 was unable to fully respond. Undersupply will definitely cause prices in the secondary market to rise. The influx of second-tier merchants carrying a large amount of money has undoubtedly contributed to the rise in prices. Assuming there is a hot-selling Rolex, authorized dealers will definitely sell watches to old customers and VIPs who have multiple purchase records in the same situation, instead of ordinary consumers who buy for the first time. As a company that sells products, Rolex has no way and energy to choose customers. For Rolex, secondary merchants and ordinary consumers are customers who buy watches. But this situation will undoubtedly hurt a lot of ordinary consumers and new customers. The same new watch needs to be purchased at a secondary merchant through a price increase. Prior to this, Rolex had carried out related controls, such as tearing films. Although there is a policy of tearing the film, there are certain loopholes, such as only tearing off the QR code film on the side of the case. The new policy this time is to explicitly tear off all the films, while also requiring the length of the strip to be adjusted to the length of the wrist of the customer. Rolex officials still do not directly select customers, but this method can greatly increase the difficulty for secondary merchants to resell new watches. After tearing the film and cutting the watch band, there is no way for consumers to recognize it as a ‘new watch’, but instead, it is classified as a ‘use product’. Naturally, they cannot earn a premium and may even lose money. According to insiders, this move is a global unifying action of Rolex’s headquarters, which aims to further avoid and curb the irrational rise of Rolex’s market caused by second-tier merchants buying and buying watches from authorized dealers of Rolex, and protecting the general consumer. Interests.

Good way. As two legendary brands inheriting European ancestry, Zenith and Land Rover always adhere to the brand spirit of courage to explore and strive for excellence, and adhere to the unremitting pursuit of superb technology and extraordinary temperament. When Land Rover’s new Range Rover Nebula is launched in 2017, Zenith will once again join hands with Land Rover to open a new cross-border cooperation to create a more confident and refined gentleman style for contemporary men.

Pure and extraordinary, pioneering and brave, is the consistent quality pursued by Land Rover; precision and excellence, retro gentleman, is the best interpretation of the brand spirit of Zenith. Since the launch of Zenith’s first integrated self-winding chronograph movement in 1969, El Primero is still the only chronograph movement in the world with a precision of 1/10 seconds. At the time of the 2017 Geneva International Auto Show, Zenith followed the classics and took watch inspiration from the design of the new Land Rover model. It shocked the introduction of the iconic outline, outstanding performance and extraordinary collaboration models-the new El Primero star speed Range Rover Star Vessel.

People Reach Middle Age, A Table Is More Talented

Some media invited me to submit a draft, the title is ‘What watch do people buy in middle age?’ It is an interesting entry point. When people reach middle age, the five sons and daughters—wife, children, house, car, plus silver—can be considered a complete success. Although there are still some mortgage pressures, although I have to save the tuition fees for children to study abroad, I have a lot of money on hand after being promoted and I want to find some ‘plaything’ for myself. Since his wife can’t have an affair, it’s not too much to buy a watch and give him half a lifetime of hard work. A 40-year-old uncle, of course, should not be too shabby in his watch. The budget is tentatively set at 100,000 yuan. I can always find a few good-looking watches! Put on your hands and let the negotiating opponents feel that you have a good taste at the formal business meeting. When you go to play golf on the weekend, the golfers saw them come and praise them. The point is that each morning when I admire two eyes, I am also full of joy. I feel that I have reached a small peak in my life. I feel happy when I want to come, and the corner of my mouth is not consciously raised by 45 degrees. Buying a watch with a budget of 100,000, this price is not small, there are indeed many options, but honestly, this price is not too much, and some of the top brands’ famous series are not involved. When choosing a watch in this range, you may consider several aspects such as brand awareness, market popularity, complex functions, precious metal materials, and special limits. Vacheron Constantin-Wulu series automatic winding watch 100,000 yuan can buy Vacheron Constantin mechanical watches? Don’t doubt, now this wish is finally realized. This year Vacheron Constantin launched a new ‘FIFTYSIX’ series, named after a model number 6073 introduced in 1956. The characteristic is that the 4 lug designs come from the 4 branches of the brand logo ‘Malta Cross’, which is highly recognizable. In the past, Vacheron Constantin watches were mostly made of precious metals and rarely used stainless steel. In recent years, in order to allow more consumers to have Vacheron Constantin, the brand has also begun to add stainless steel models to the sports watch ‘vertical and horizontal’ series. The basic three-pin model of the chain is also priced at 156,000 yuan, and now the basic three-pin steel case and belt of the ‘Wulu model’ is priced at only 89,000 yuan, which is currently the lowest-priced mechanical watch by Vacheron Constantin. This was previously It is unimaginable. However, it must be said that the price has come down, but the watch has not received the ‘Geneva Mark’ like other watches of the brand, and it is not a self-produced movement, but a movement of the Valfleurier movement factory under the Richemont Group. But honestly, few people know such details. The average person just looks at the watch on your wrist, and exclaims: Wow! Vacheron Constantin, cow! Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watch. If you want to buy a reliable, durable and atmospheric watch, Rolex is the right choice. I have always felt that Rolex is a brand that ‘does only simple things, but makes simple things to the extreme.’ It does not rely on fancy to win the eye, but it is trustworthy in all aspects of precision, waterproof, anti-vibration, anti-magnetic … Rolex has a lot of ‘explosive models’. Dayton’s ceramic ring and submarine green water ghost are all selling long-selling models. You may have had this kind of experience in person, or heard of it. When you go to a watch store to inquire about these models, the response is generally ‘out of stock’. It’s not easy to ask about the goods, and they often ask for a premium purchase. To give a discount, it is 20% to 30% more expensive than the official price of the brand, and even requires bundling with other watches. The Rolex Daytona stainless steel model is priced at 92,800 yuan, and the chronograph ring is priced at 95,000 yuan if it is ceramic. Although it is a very sporty watch, it is not outdated with a formal dress. Have the opportunity to go abroad, to Japan and South Korea, to Europe and the United States, might as well go to the watch industry and ask, do not hesitate to meet the spot shot, if you miss it, you may be missed again. TAG Heuer Carrera series Heuer 02T tourbillon chronograph has spent 100,000 yuan to buy a watch, but it is only a three-hand watch or a chronograph, is it too cost-effective? Anyway, a complicated function like a tourbillon. However, tourbillons, generally well-known brands, are placed in precious metal models, with a jump of 300,000 to 500,000 yuan, and some do not know where they are, and they will cost millions in one breath. Then look at this tourbillon again, it feels very worthwhile. TAG Heuer’s Carella series Heuer 02T tourbillon chronograph was launched in 2016 when it caused an uproar. First of all, Tag Heuer is also a well-known Swiss watchmaking brand with a history of nearly 160 years. The watch is made of titanium, equipped with a self-made movement, equipped with timing and flying tourbillon functions, and has obtained the official Swiss Observatory certification (COSC). The error is controlled between -6 ~ + 4, and it also has a 65-hour power reserve and a water-resistant depth of 100 meters … Lin Lin always added up. At that time, the price was only 15,000 Swiss francs. The current domestic price is 124,500 yuan. To. Of course, it may exceed the budget. It doesn’t matter. There is a discount to find a dealer, or to find discounts on the e-commerce platform. There is always a way to start. The three watches in front of the Jaeger-LeCoultre 41mm ultra-thin watch are either stainless steel or titanium. In fact, a budget of 100,000 yuan can be considered in the precious metal models. But if you want to balance brand awareness, you can only choose the basic model. At a certain age, in addition to making a gold watch, in addition to making you look more expensive and rich, the watch can also maintain value. Recommended here is the Jaeger-LeCoultre 41 mm ultra-thin watch, with an official price of 108,000 yuan. Jaeger-LeCoultre is also a well-known Swiss watchmaking brand with a history of 185 years. The watchmaker has a strong ability to manufacture its own movements. Many famous watch brands have used or still use Jaeger-LeCoultre movements. Although the case is made of rose gold, because it is equipped with a crocodile leather strap and a thickness of only 7.48 mm, it does not feel heavy when worn on the wrist. You know, although ‘ultra-thin’ is not included in the complex function, it is also a Technical challenges. This watch is very suitable for business occasions, slightly under the sleeves of suits and shirts, full of elegant gentleman. The IWC Pilot’s Heritage Watch is like a watch that you do n’t want to bump into a shirt or tie with someone else. You do n’t want to bump into a watch when you spend 100,000 yuan on it. The watches that everyone wears on the street are not unusual. If you want to choose, choose a limited edition of special materials. In recent years, the use of bronze as the watch material is quite popular. The characteristic of bronze is that it will be stained with pale green patina over time, and this color is darker or lighter as each wearer’s habits are different. Each is different, giving the watch a unique personality. IWC’s Large Pilot’s Watch is a legendary, story-telling watch that looks very manic at first glance. The 46.2 mm case diameter, the large onion crown, the dial design of the aircraft instrument panel design, and the sturdy hands are all very distinctive. The watch is equipped with a self-produced self-winding movement and an anti-magnetic soft iron inner case to protect the movement from magnetic interference. It has a 7-day power reserve and is displayed at 3 o’clock on the disk. The watch is limited to 1,500 pieces and is priced at 104,000 yuan.

Kate Princess, ‘hard And Thrift’, Only Has One Watch

Recently, Prince Louis, the third child of Prince William and Princess Kate, was baptized. The baptismal ceremony was held at the Royal Church of James Palace in London, England. Later, the British royal family officially released several photos. In the photos, the little prince and brother and sister were very cute, but what surprised me the most was that after the marriage of Princess Kate for 7 years and the birth of 3 children, she was still able to maintain Such a good state.

Princess Kate holding the little Prince Louis

 The official title of ‘Kate Princess’ is ‘His Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge,’ and the name of ‘Princess’ can be said to be a reflection of the public’s love for Kate. In 2011, Kate married Prince William in London. At that time, the eyes of the whole world were focused on that meaningful ‘balcony’ of the century.

The moment Prince William and Princess Kate kissed

 When it comes to this, many people may think of Princess Diana. Twenty years ago, Princess Diana, who was only 36 years old, left the world in a car accident, leaving young Prince William and Harry. It was also in recent years that William and Harry revealed that their mother’s departure had a huge and lasting impact on their lives.

Princess Diana married Prince Charles

Princess Diana, William Jr. and Charlie Jr.

 After the death of Princess Diana, the royal family is said to have William and Harry pick a mother’s relic as a memorial. William chose his mother’s sapphire ring, which is now worn on Kate’s hands. Kate almost never took off the ring, and wore this meaningful sapphire ring on any occasion. We saw the Royal Family at the Wimbledon final audience last weekend. Among them, Kate wore a bright yellow dress that was very energetic. You should know that her production has been less than 3 months, and her figure has recovered as before.

Princess Kate wears Cartier blue balloon watch

 On that day, in addition to wearing the sapphire ring, she also wore a blue balloon from Cartier. This blue balloon is currently the most worn and the most photographed by Princess Kate. After she married the royal family, this is also the only open watch Kate we can find.

Kate and Meghan

 This is not the first time the British royal family has appeared in the Wimbledon audience. American actor Meghan Markle, who has just married the British royal family, has appeared with his sister-in-law. On the same day, Kate still chose elegant dresses, and Meghan chose more neat shirts and pants. Careful observation, Kate was still wearing this Cartier blue balloon that day.

Princess Kate wears Cartier blue balloon watch

 Many people don’t know that the design inspiration of Cartier Blue balloon really comes from a ‘balloon’. It is said that the designer’s design inspiration came from France at the end of the 18th century. The Brothers Montgolfier released a blue hot air balloon with a gold pattern, which was the first hot air balloon in human history. Inspired by this story, Cartier first launched a watch named Ballon Bleu de Cartier in 2007. Of course, we still don’t know if this story is credible, but the blue balloon received great attention once it was launched. From the performance of the market, Cartier blue balloon is another representative of Cartier after the tank series.

 Back on the princess wearing this watch, its appearance rate is really too high.

 As the ‘Princess of the Common People’ in the British population, Kate’s dress style and elegant temperament have always been highly sought after by the public. In addition to her high-definition in her wardrobe, many fast-fashionable brands are her choice. It is also Kate’s common practice for a piece of clothing to appear on different occasions by matching different items. For example, the two pictures above, the same off-white coat, changed through different hairstyles and accessories, the same thing is that she is wearing that Cartier blue balloon.

 The appearance rate of this blue balloon is so high that we can only conclude in the end that either Kate really loves this watch, or she only has this one. Of course, the latter is almost impossible.

Flip Back The Pointer On The Watch

If time is a memory that is reflected in my mind, it will inevitably fade away. We always hope that there is a back button to go back to the past and make it beautiful again-like the confession that has been sore at the graduation ceremony of a certain summer in the past; Ling Yun and Youzi who have gone out for the first time; even those Passengers and partings who waved goodbye but never returned. If there is such a method in the world, even if we can’t change anything, we are still willing to try and own it—as if we are obsessed with the flyback pointer on the watch. Even if the time is zero, we can’t return to the original point, but you still enjoy it.

 The characteristic of flyback is that the pointer can return to the original position when the pointer reaches the end of the scale. Generally, the hands move in a circular motion, and just return to the original position after one rotation, so the end point is always the starting point of the next round. The function of the flyback pointer is different. When the indication scale is full, the pointer will instantly return to the starting point of the scale and repeat the new process. An old gentleman once fiddled with the watch in his hand and said to me: ‘I have countless watches, no matter whether they are limited in complexity or rare antique watches, the price is more than this number of times, but I like this one the most.’ The FM, which combines only 30 seconds of dual chasing, tourbillon and other complex functions, was handed to me, and continued to mark: ‘Because flyback is the most’ super complicated ‘in my eyes, this is not just its function , It is more metaphoric to the feeling it brings me. ‘As he said, many watch lovers are also fascinated by the flyback function on the watch, although it can not be zeroed with the return of the pointer, making the time passed. Come again, but the metaphorical meaning behind this feature is enough to remind us of the true meaning of time.
