We have a responsibility to provide the highest level of customer service, which is one of the important standards of Patek Philippe’s mark. We believe that the best Watchmakers can analyze and repair the entire history of a timepiece, whether it was made today or at the beginning of Patek Philippe’s birth in 1839. This is the charm of watchmaking, these things You cannot learn from books. Today, with the testimony of distinguished guests and government officials, we have achieved another breakthrough, fulfilled our commitment and continued to invest in the field of customer service. ‘

Rolex Classic Is Made Like This

As with all great undertakings, today’s glorious and extraordinary Rolex actually originated from an ordinary starting point. Hans Wilsdorf was born in 1881. In the early 20th century, an era when pocket watches were prevalent, he began to enter the Swiss watch manufacturing industry at a young age. At that time, wristwatches were only considered as jewelry favored by women with very little production, but Hans Wilsdorf firmly believed that watches were equally beautiful, precise and durable.
Mr. Hans Wilsdorf, founder of Rolex
In 1905, at the age of 24, he started a watch company in London, selling timepieces to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth, and equipped the product with a small precision movement produced by a watch manufacturing company in Bill City. In 1908, he registered a trademark name for his innovative products, Rolex. The name conforms to the pronunciation conventions of all European languages ​​and can be easily printed on the surface. Hans Wilsdorf’s original vision beyond contemporary will soon be rewarded. World War I brought humanity a catastrophe, but also became the best promoter of watch popularity. For soldiers with heavy equipment and heavy uniforms, watches have pocket watches. With incomparable inherent advantages, Rolex quickly became one of the most important watch suppliers in the UK. The first oyster watch
Precision is the only language
十年 In the first ten years of Rolex’s establishment, Wilsdorf has always insisted on sending the movement to the official quality control agency for testing, and continuously improves the reliability of the movement. In 1910, the official timepiece evaluation center in Biel granted the official certification of a precision timepiece to a Rolex watch. This was the first time that a Swiss official granted such a certification. In 1914, Rolex was awarded the Class A precision timepiece certification issued by the British Observatory. Originally only professional marine timepieces could obtain this honor. Since then, Rolex’s quality has become synonymous with precision watches, and this success has also made Rolex’s future strategy more determined to send most of the watches produced to the Observatory certification, until today, Rolex has obtained the number of watches certified Already far ahead of other competitors, it ranks first in the world.
World Time Watch
Every glory begins in Oyster
In 1926, the world’s first waterproof and dust-proof watch was born, named Oyster. The so-called oyster watch was inspired by its screw-in waterproof back cover and was completely sealed from the structure of oysters. The case provides the best protection for the movement. Oyster watches make Rolex synonymous with water resistance. The emergence of the Oyster watch itself is a challenge to the traditional watch market, and also allows the legend of the brand to begin. In 1927, the Oyster watch accompanied the young British female swimmer Mercedes Gillies across the English Channel and remained safe and accurate. Since then, the prelude to close collaboration between Rolex and outstanding individuals has been unveiled. The combination of sports adventure activities and propaganda activities is also known as the most successful marketing method of the last century.
The first Datejust watch
Innovation and function go hand in hand
In the 1930s, when other watch factories were still experimenting with automatic winding mechanisms, Rolex was able to mass-produce its technology developed for many years. In 1931, it successfully launched other Rolex Oyster automatic winding watches. Most of the automatic watches in the world today have actually adopted this technology from Rolex. In 1956, the Day-Date was introduced. This was the world’s first watch with full date and day information. In the decades of the post-Hans Wilsdorf era, even after experiencing the impact of quartz and electronic timing technology, Rolex has always adhered to the development of mechanical timing. In the early 1950s, with perfect precision timing and excellent waterproof performance, Rolex developed The professional watch series has far more functions than simple chronograph.
 Permanent classic details
In recent decades, Rolex models have not changed much in shape and style. Therefore, they have been criticized for keeping abreast with the status quo. A series of intertwined tales of inspiration, characters and events are circulating. Even though consumers may not be able to tell at a glance that Rolex’s continuous improvement in accuracy and practicality, but look at the numerous classic designs that have been used by the times, such as oyster cases, Mercedes-style hands, two places The time display, waterproof performance, helium vent valve and unidirectional rotatable chronograph outer ring design, and those seemingly bland bezels, calendars, and second hand movement design have become the best details praised by Rolex, even if By today’s watchmaking standards, it is a classic century. Rolex’s introverted watchmaking attitude is a testament to the minimalist design concept of less is more.
This classic story has a clever combination of tradition, honor and technology, an eternal glorious chapter, a journey of excellence, a cohesion of wisdom and innovation, and a relentless spirit of perfection.
The classics are identified like this
Classic Features 1. The fluorescent spot at 12 o’clock must be warm and smooth as jade. The shape of the oyster shell has been tested for more than half a century and has become a classic and timeless, especially the fluorescent dot at 12 o’clock, which is extremely gentle and smooth, like a pearl. It appears in the diving watch series. Become one of the most important details.
Classic features 2. There are special rules for the second hand to follow. To put it simply, during the operation of the watch, you should see that the round key at the tail of the second hand just passes the center point of the “Benz” hour hand. This seemingly inadvertent “small design” can actually show Great brand skills and rigorous attitude.
Classic features 3. Rolex’s calendar font is different from conventional designs. Whether it’s Day-Date or Submariner, calendar fonts are extremely distinctive, and the two numbers that are most easily distinguished are 1 and 4. In the ‘Rolex System’, the ‘1’ displayed is very similar to the English letter ‘I’, and the top corner of the ‘4’ is flat.

Watchmaker Sebastian Peret designed the watch work inspired by the Big Ben in London, England, and won the Mido Watch Design Competition.

Source of inspiration
   In order to meet this challenge, Sebastian Peret carefully observed the famous London building, Big Ben, from near to far at the beginning of his creation. As the founder of the Etude de Style design agency in Neuchatel, Switzerland, his design was inspired by the slender silhouette of the clock tower of Westminster, England. When you look at it, endless details emerge in front of you: complete and delicate features, the shadow cast by the notch and the square clock face perfectly illustrate eternal time. He designed the watch to show the grandeur of Big Ben, the streamlined neo-Gothic style, and restore the outline structure from the inside out. This is also the challenge he set for himself-to maximize the characteristics of Mido watches.

Mido Watch Design Competition
   In March 2015, Swiss Mido grandly announced at the Basel Watch & Jewellery Show that this professional watchmaker’s watch design competition was held. Three professional watchmakers were asked to design a new limited edition watch inspired by the Big Ben in London, England.

The Case That Subverts The Traditional Appearance, Interpretation Of Free And Indulgent Timepiece

As more and more trendy designs pour into the modern trend, with the collision of different design concepts, the design of watches and clocks does not work. The change of the shape of the watch comes from the pursuit of different aesthetics of the watchmaker, and is keen to break through the traditional restraints. On the other hand, it also comes from the fatigue of the audience. It will also give people a refreshing feeling. For collectors, such innovative watches are also the best collections. The weird case is not only a work that makes watchmakers proud, but also makes viewers remember it and deeply remember the brand.

  Cartier TankCrash Watch

  TankCrash translates as ‘impact tank’. The uniquely designed Crash watch is also one of the most mysterious and rare works in Cartier’s watchmaking history. Since its birth, the precious Cartier Crash watch has created a rare custom legend in the watchmaking field: Gathering Noble elements, superb craftsmanship and unlimited creativity.

  The design of this watch has made a bold change to the tank’s appearance. After the two watches are collided with each other, they are integrated into one. No matter how the changes are made, the appearance of the tank watch can still be recognized at first glance. The dial simply presents four irregular Roman numerals, classic orbital scales and blue sword hands still appearing on the dial. The pearl inlay adds a touch of softness and gorgeousness to the original personality of the watch. With black belt, mysterious and stylish.

  When most people see a twisted case, they may think that the watch has been squeezed and deformed, but in the eyes of designers and artists, this is another extreme beauty, which looks tangible in the invisible. At the 2013 Geneva watchmaking exhibition, the Crash watch launched by Cartier continued the twisted and exaggerated design and smooth natural lines, and its curved case increased the difficulty of traveling, because each time scale is not uniform, one grid and one change. The elongated or indented parts need to undergo strict angle measurement. In addition, for the first time in this series, the watch has a metal bracelet instead of a leather strap. The drop-shaped bracelet made of white gold or rose gold is dazzling and outstanding, showing the independent and agile but noble personality of urban women.

  Piaget LimelightBloomingRose

  The earl is a woman’s best friend. It always fuses timepieces and jewelry with each other, letting time and light set off each other. The way Piaget changes the case is not to deform or twist it, but to let time bloom beautiful flowers as the case rotates. The LimelightBloomingRose watch is a new member of the YvesPiaget rose garden. It blooms dazzling creativity, and the beautiful flower crown rotates slowly, like a brilliant bouquet of diamonds, adding a bright light to the rose gold bed.

  The dial design of this watch is like a bud with buds to be placed, and four diamond petals are close to each other to form a simple and gentle curve, which reveals a subtle beauty during the day. The shadow of the day was tilted westward, the intoxicating dance party was unveiled, the rose buds were in full bloom, and four diamond-paved petals were all in sight. The dazzling jewellery roses show once again the exquisite craftsmanship of Piaget craftsmen. Piaget’s original concealed mechanical mechanism allows the upper case to rotate 45 degrees, turning it into the brand’s distinguished representative-Eve Count Rose, telling the brand’s extraordinary creativity.

  Bvlgari Octo watches
  Passing the eternal value through the century civilization, OCTO transcends the traditional male watch design. Has strong and extraordinary charm and dazzling distinctive personality. The Bulgari Octo watch has a high degree of recognition on different occasions due to its unique shape, breaking the conventional case shape, successfully using geometric principles, and combining simple circles and squares to form a perfect octagon. shape. The bold design of 18K white gold will make Bvlgari impeccable. Such a stylish watch must only be paired with a sportsman to highlight its charm.

  In addition to its appearance, the functions of this watch are extremely complicated, so let’s briefly introduce it to everyone. The white semi-circle on the left side of the dial is the hour display. The hand automatically jumps back to the initial position when it reaches the end point, or the function of manually adjusting the chronograph hand to return to the initial position. The small white disk on the right shows the minutes. The four small black disks on the right must have made you dizzy. From top to bottom are the clock alarm / mute indicator, the kinetic energy reserve indicator and the size self-sound indicator of the separate movement and the time signal device.

  Minute repeater with four hammers, the watch not only can strike the famous Westminster Zhongle, but also provides self-sounding function. This watch is equipped with CalibreGG31002 movement, with excellent performance. Through the case back, you can clearly see the movement of the movement, with a power reserve of 48 hours.

  Ralph Lauren Stirrup

  It is very important for brands to find a shape symbol of their own. Just like we think of a square watch, we think of a Cartier tank, and when we think of an oval shape, we think of Breguet’s Naples. Of course, these require the brand’s long-term accumulation, but for Ralph Lauren’s Stirrup series, from the birth of this has its own shape, the horseshoe-shaped disk surface. The horseshoe design of this series is mainly due to the influence of traditional equestrian sports and the history of the PoloRalphLauren brand.

  Ralph Lauren Stirrup series diamond bracelet watch is the embodiment of Ralph Lauren’s world, which combines the adventure spirit of equestrian into a watch with unique elegance and jewellery craftsmanship. The new STIRRUPDIAMONDLINK watch symbolizes the evolution of women’s fearlessness. The case size is only 23.30 by 27 mm. It is very compact and equipped with many options.

  Hamilton VENTURA Adventure Watch

  The Adventure Collection in the American Classic Collection showcases the authentic American spirit of the Hamilton Collection. These watches incorporate 21st-century style and function into the unique phenotype of classic Hamilton. Some creative inspirations date back to the distant 1920s, and by then there were good design icons. The triangle-like appearance is more likely to give people a sense of visual conflict than the circle, and it is slightly different but more distinctive. The angular design and smooth lines exude a geometric charm.

  This special watch fully combines classic style with oversized dial design. The original shield design still shines. The angular crown is integrated with the case, and is equipped with a unique pointer at 3 o’clock. The black dial is high-end and lively, matching the shape of the case to present a triangular partition and pattern decoration. The tip of the second hand and the scale from 12 o’clock to 3 o’clock also boldly smeared the fiery red color, depicting the rhythm of the passionate impulse of the adventure watch, highlighting the wearer’s unique personality. Paired with a black rubber strap, it is comfortable to wear and highlights the noble temperament of the wearer. Underneath the arrow, the Swiss automatic mechanical movement is surging, injecting endless momentum into the passionate American spirit.

Summary: The polygon is very classic, the triangle is very backbone, and the twisted shape is very individual. Looking at such a watch that subverts the tradition, people sigh the wonders of watchmakers. Any change in any form is a progressive innovation. What you can’t do is only unexpected. Any inspiration or idea can be turned into reality through elaborate production. The timepiece looks so colorful and colorful in the hands of the designer. It is impressive.
