A total of 12 brands participated in this year’s ‘Watches and Miracles’. Yesterday we visited 8 brands. Today we will go to see the remaining 4 brands. The reason for this sort of order is also the order in which the media visiting group is located.
Baume & Mercier
This year is the 185th anniversary of the Baume & Mercier watch. I have always felt that Baume & Mercier’s propaganda efforts in China are not strong, especially on the Internet. However, from the end of the year, Baume & Mercier has plans to strengthen publicity in China and plans to find a spokesperson. And this time, the model of the famous person is my favorite, very beautiful.
This time, Baume & Mercier launched a Clayton series 18K red gold 1830 five-minute timepiece pocket watch to commemorate the 185th anniversary of the brand. This 18K red gold pocket watch has a diameter of 50 mm and its case is polished with polished satin finish. The silver-white arc-shaped dial is decorated with Arabic numerals and 18K red gold studs. The hands are also made of red gold. The timekeeping mechanism is driven by a sheath key located at 4 o’clock, which sounds once every hour with low bass, and once every five minutes with successive bass and treble. This timepiece pocket watch can not only make the clock sound on time, but also play a unique and melodic melody like an instrument. It is also equipped with a ‘full switch’ safety mechanism. If the right button of the case is not pressed to the bottom, the timekeeping mechanism will not be activated, thereby avoiding incorrect timekeeping. In addition, the manual winding movement of this pocket watch is very beautiful, the strap is also beautiful, the watch box and storage bag are very beautiful.
Van Cleef & Arpels
Van Cleef & Arpels continues to draw inspiration from nature, the pavilion is cleverly arranged, and its models are dressed like the spirits in nature.
This time, a new poetic complex watch was launched, which transformed the charming scenery of nature between the dials. The dial’s craftsmanship and its complexity, the filling and reeling enamel, feathers and other elements made the female guests linger on the scene.
As the leader of the German watchmaking session, Lange just released its new Lange 1 model just before the show, using a large calendar display and continuing the characteristics of the Lange 1 watch, which is well worth buying.
At this show, this special edition of the 1815 CHRONOGRAPH store, which is only available in its store, has attracted much attention. First, the dark blue printed dial and silvery white dial are visually intertwined. In addition to the dark blue printed dial elements, this watch is set on the peripheral pulsometer scale to measure heart rate. Stop counting when the 30th heartbeat is counted. The sweeping chronograph second hand will point to the pulse meter scale and directly display the number of heartbeats per minute. Each hand also forms a rich color combination, the hour and minute hands are made of rhodium-plated 18K yellow gold. Sweep chronograph seconds, integrating dial, small seconds are made of blue steel. I feel that the special edition of the store will make a lot of people sigh.
Vacheron Constantin’s thinnest chronograph automatic chronograph watch released at the Geneva Watch Fair earlier this year and the most complicated pocket watch 57260 just released were shocked. I thought Vacheron Constantin would never again What new products did you expect?
The first is the launch of a new jewellery and women’s watch series, the Heures Créatives series. The design of the Heures Créatives watch combines the characteristics of three iconic art periods: Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and 1970s art. The Heure Romantique, Heure Discrète and Heure Audacieuse timepieces form a wonderful trilogy dedicated to three different women who are elegant and individual.
In the case of men’s watches, the Historiques Cornes de vache 1955 watch is re-interpreted with a ‘horn-shaped’ lug design, using a platinum 950 case with a diameter of 38.50 mm. The watch strictly continues the original model at 3 The layout of the 30-minute chronograph dial at the o’clock position and the small second hand at the 9 o’clock position, by design, make the overall layout more relaxed and more readable, improving the readability of various functions. The area of the silver-plated milky dial is extended with Roman numerals. The hour markers and hands are made of 18K white gold, while the central chronograph seconds hand, 30-minute chronograph hands and tachymeter scale are selected in royal blue, which further completes the dial. For legibility, the movement bears the Geneva Seal. Although this watch is not limited, it only produces 100 watches per year, and it may not be easy to buy in the first one or two years.
Twelve fine watch brands interpreted this ‘watches and miracles’ together. Let’s see ‘watches and miracles’ next year. They should still be in Hong Kong.
