Compared with the most popular iphone nowadays, no matter how complicated the mechanical watch is, it can only be regarded as ‘useless’. Perpetual calendar? Any ordinary mobile phone and electronic watch can tell you the year, month, and day. Minute repeaters and bells? The current time signal is vocal, and the ringtone now has a variety of beautiful music. Tourbillon? Electronic watches and mobile phones can be accurate without the need for a tourbillon. Complex watches used to take pride in their functions. Now there are newer and more high-tech alternatives. When the complex movement departs from the purpose of ‘useful’, it rises to true beauty. Ultra-complex watches have also risen from practical tools to works of art.
How many limited edition complex watches are collected by collectors for daily wear? Like the blue and white porcelain bowl of the Yuan Dynasty and the Huanghuali chair of the Ming Dynasty, who would really use it to eat and drink tea, and who would actually sit on it and read a book. Their functions have faded, and their value as artworks and historical relics has become increasingly prominent. The sophisticated watches launched by the century-old brand were born almost as art and collectibles. There is pure blood in them, and ancient history follows the same line.
