18K white gold case, produced in 2001, diameter 36 mm, thickness 10 mm
Commission price: 23750 USD
Estimated price: USD 20,000 ~ 25,000
For the simple models of Patek Philippe, I have always liked Ref. 5054. Because such a slanted dial design style is somewhat similar to the Ref. 5026 of the year. Of course, in a strict sense, Ref. 5054 is not that simple. After all, it has a calendar function, and it also has a moon phase display. Of course, it is simple because there are too many complicated models in Patek Philippe’s catalog. The 18K white gold case and Cal240 / 160 movement represent the style of modern Patek Philippe. Of course, the diameter of this watch is not large. The size of 36 mm belongs to the very standard men’s formal watch. It turns out that a case of this size is the most comfortable to wear on your wrist. The final transaction price was very close to the highest estimated price of $ 25,000. In fact, this price is very suitable for investment, all you need is a little patience. Gold watches have always been an element of high-end products in the watch industry. After all, making watches with precious metal materials is an important indicator for each brand to position its product line. Any complicated watch will be represented by precious metals. Someone once joked that the ‘starter’ mentality of gold watches only prevails in the Mainland. In fact, otherwise, gold watches still have works close to art, and they can be accepted worldwide.
1. Oris Artix GT Chronograph
Multi-piece stainless steel case with a diameter of 44 mm. The black dial is equipped with an hour and minute counter. The second display window is at 9 o’clock and the date display window is at 6 o’clock. The watch uses the ETA7750 self-winding chronograph movement, which is water-resistant to 100 meters.
The chronograph movement represents a height in the watch industry. Throughout the industry, there are not many brands with independent timing movements. Even under the reputable independent manufacturers, self-made movements with timing functions are relatively rare, because the timing movement structure is complex and requires a lot of investment. R & D with time. Therefore, nowadays, behind the luxuriant chronograph watches, the high-quality and cheap chronograph movements represented by ETA7750 and ETA2894-2 are of great help. Good design can blossom, which is a good thing for the industry. The ETA7750 movement is widely used in the design of many brands, and has become the best platform for many brands to express their creativity. Some increase the power reserve display and retrograde hands for the ETA7750, some change the position of the original small dial, or intentionally delete it. In short, a wave of transformation that does not stick to the original design is in full swing, dazzling and dizzying. The Oris Artix GT chronograph introduced by Oris is also the heir and communicator of this ETA7750 transformation trend. At first glance, the black dial seems to have only two small dials, but after careful observation, we find that the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock turns into an elongated display window, with a rotation behind the elongated window. Is pressed into a spiral-shaped sheet, so the second display becomes a telescopic red line. The linearly changing seconds dial adds a lot of fun to this watch, and at the same time allows the ETA7750 to be presented to people in a completely new look. When we look at the back of the watch, Oris’ patented red automatic tourbillon is still the same.
2.Girard Perregaux Laureato Tourbillon Watch
42.60 mm titanium case with straight-line satin matte finish and octagonal platinum bezel. This watch uses Girard-Perregaux 9600-0004 automatic winding movement, with hours, minutes and seconds display function, small seconds hand assembled in the tourbillon frame, 48 hours power reserve, 30 meters water resistance, independent numbering, limited to 10 only. The classic design is always more deeply rooted in the people than the momentary trend. Girard Perregaux with a history of more than 200 years and many classic designs is a representative of people’s timelessness. Like the Sanjin Bridge from the 19th century, it is still new today. The three bridge design uses three splints to fix the barrel, center wheel and tourbillon, respectively. This design requires that the axis of the barrel, the center wheel and the tourbillon be aligned in a straight line. Therefore, the gear arrangement is different from the traditional one. Here is a small detail that deserves your attention. The minute hand of Sanjinqiao watches is below the hour hand, which is the exact opposite of the watches you usually see. This is because the original three bridge design was located on the back of the pocket watch. In order to better reflect the beauty, the three bridge was presented on the dial, so the movement was reversed, so the arrangement of the hands was different from that of ordinary watches. Girard Perregaux Laureato three-bridge tourbillon watch has a sense of time while conveying classic elements. The three blue spinel splints are not only the embodiment of the watch’s advancement with the times, but also the finishing touch on the dial. Avant-garde fashion, without hindering the wearer to observe the movements of the movement. The tourbillon, which rotates once a minute against the blue transparent plywood, is pleasing to the eye. The tough titanium case and the octagonal platinum bezel echo the dial with a fusion of fashionable elements. The combination of tradition and modernity is really intoxicating and difficult to extricate.
3.Glashütte Grande Cosmopolite Tourbillon watch
The platinum case, with a diameter of 48 mm and a thickness of 16 mm, uses a 89-01 manual winding movement with a power reserve of 72 hours. It is limited to 25 pieces. When you first see this watch, the flying tourbillon at 12 o’clock may first attract people’s attention. But in fact, the tourbillon is just the icing on the cake for this Glashütte Grande Cosmopolite Tourbillon watch. The most outstanding feature of this watch is the perpetual calendar and world time functions displayed through multiple display windows. Glashütte has shown an upward trend in recent years. This complex-function watch that took only six years to develop is the concentrated expression of Glashütte’s technical skills. Like the usual two-hour watch, the central hand represents the local time, and the small 24-hour dial at 6 o’clock indicates the home time. Because the adjustment of the table is more complicated, we summarize its characteristics slightly. The DST window at 1 and 8 o’clock represents daylight saving time, and the STD window represents normal standard time. 2. When adjusting the area, the central pointer moves forward or backward in units of 15 minutes. 3. The perpetual calendar will move forward or backward along with the time in the second time zone. 4. 37 time zone charts are marked on the case back for easy viewing. Fifth, there is a power reserve display on the back of the manual movement. In addition, the watch also has moon phases, leap years and large calendar displays, and various time functions are available, which can be described as Glashütte’s most complicated work. Needless to say the comprehensive display function, coupled with the embellishment of the tourbillon, both functional and ornamental, make people applaud.
4.Longines Soymia retrograde moon phase watch
44mm stainless steel case, black and silver dial styles, with day, date, second and 24-hour second time zone, four retrograde functions, and moon phase and day and night display, the watch uses L707 (ETA A07 L31) self-winding movement, power reserve 48 hours, waterproof depth 30 meters.
The retrograde pointer is a very interesting feature. Time is directional and irreversible, but the retrograde function seems to make time go backwards and return to the past in an instant, while watching the pointer slowly move back to the jumping position, waiting for the pointer to return to the original point. Let people look forward. The principle of retrograde is not complicated and it is easy to identify. When you see a mechanism similar in appearance to the ‘comma’ in the movement, even if you don’t see the dial, you can roughly judge that this is a watch with a retrograde function. This Longines Somia retrograde moon phase watch is the representative of the retrograde function, and there are 4 retrograde hands on the dial. The calendar, day of the week, second time zone, and seconds are displayed on the dial in a retrograde manner. If the retrograde display of the day of the week and calendar will make people wait too long to appreciate a hand dial, then the second hand indicated by retrograde will be a feast for the eyes. The wearer can even watch the pointer finish jumping back and forth again and again, the fun is self-evident. Throughout the entire dial, the second time zone and calendar indications are set on both sides of the edge of the dial, and the hour markers are located on the inside of the dial. It has the retrograde function and does not hinder the reading, coordination and order, the best of both worlds
Regarding Hublot watches, we think more about their innovative and advanced design. The fixed thinking mode makes it easy for us to associate them with men, but Hublot is for women. Watchmaking is also painstaking, and even the spokespersons are carefully selected. Hublot’s new advertising campaign for women will be launched in the Financial Times and International Forward Tribune on March 8. She is beautiful, sexy, smart and active. She is a successful mall woman and good wife. She represents very precious values such as independence, personality, family and loyalty.

She then entered her acting career, and she is still doing her acting career in Latin America and the United States. This is a new female face of Hublot. Hublot is very honored to present its new international image ambassador and idol: Jacky Bracamontes van Hoorde.
Speaking of his role as Hublot image ambassador, Jacky Bracamontes said: ‘There is no way to not fall in love with Hublot watches, because in addition to the watches themselves are exquisite and beautiful, the brand has shared its success with many charities. It is also an honor to be part of the Hublot family. ‘
Precise brand positioning is the first step in opening up the women’s market. I believe that it will definitely make a difference in this market in the future....

Watch adjustment is a major issue for watchmakers to test the watchmaking process, and for owners, it is an emotional communication process with love watches. Due to the large number of movement parts and the complicated structure, the adjustment is full of uncertainty, but it is also this uncertainty that makes the unique appeal of mechanical watches.

The rigorous pursuit of a watchmaker
Mechanical watches are always full of precision and charm, but you must know that the time of the watch is not necessarily accurate. Perhaps until now, many consumers still lack this common sense. Usually the error of the mechanical watch is within +/- 30 seconds / day, and the error of the quartz watch is within +/- 0.5 seconds / day. This is because there are many parts in the movement, and because of structural or material restrictions, there is a problem of insufficient precision between each other, so watch adjustment has always been unavoidable, especially the fine adjustment after assembly is very cumbersome. It is said that the adjustment time of a mechanical watch often accounts for more than half of the entire mechanical movement assembly time.
In fact, from the start of pocket watches, adjusting a watch is called ‘talking to the soul’. The watchmakers worked hard on it. Traditional watch adjustment is done with the help of a hairspring, which is the soul of a movement that controls the balance wheel. Just as the human soul weighs only 21 grams, the hairspring is also the lightest and most important of all the moving parts in the movement. In order to adjust the length of the elastic position of the balance spring, most of the movements are equipped with a ‘fast and slow needle’. By moving the fast and slow needles, the length of the vibration part of the hairspring can be simply controlled to adjust the time.
功 Practical homework for wearers
普通 For ordinary wearers, how to ensure the accuracy of the time after getting a carved watch is the actual study. In the part that you can control, the smoothness of the adjustment is very important. It directly reflects whether the gears of the watch are tightly engaged. The better the watch is, the smoother it feels when it is adjusted. Yu Wei, general manager of Beijing Shangpin Family Watch Consignment Station, told reporters that fluency has a direct impact on the sale and price of the second watch. Dryness is unacceptable. A watch with a twisted crown and hand pain, even if it is very good in other aspects, will affect sales.
Anonymous watches are really high-precision instruments. You do n’t need to read the manual when you adjust them, but it will definitely scare you after reading them. It turns out that you may not really adjust the time except for the electronic watch that does not need to be adjusted. Even if the universal ‘first let the second hand go to 12 o’clock to pull out the crown, the second hand is still at this time, turn the crown clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust the position of the hour hand and minute, when each hand and standard time (using TV Or the radio as a reference), when the same, push the crown back to the original position; ‘Calendar, day of the week, moon phase functions, can not be operated between 21:00 PM-3:00AM’ and other rules, will also allow beginners Sigh ‘difficult to serve’.
Of course, most people don’t care about this error. ‘I think that the inaccuracy of the mechanical watch is normal (except for the tourbillon). In fact, I value the function, craftsmanship, culture and brand story of the watch more. How many people who watch the watch now watch the time?’ Beijing Ming Lu Shuyi, vice president of Runchuang Technology Co., Ltd. and watch enthusiast, said.
Faced with the advice of adjusting at the same time every day, most watch lovers laughed at it. After all, clocks are fun, not trouble, and you ca n’t set the alarm by mobile phone alone for the protection of the movement and the accuracy of the adjustment. Remind yourself to wind the watch. After all, adjusting time is more of an excuse to play with love watches....
