Bell & Ross Fighting Heroes In The Air

In many fields, the military cause has always played a vanguard role. Military innovations are often used in people’s lives, such as the Internet, GPS, and even the first commercial jet aircraft. Dassault Aviation connects advanced technologies between the civilian and military sectors and masters unparalleled top-notch technology. Bell & Ross and Dassault Aircraft have the same enthusiasm for the aviation industry, and this enthusiasm has become a guide for both companies to create. In 2013, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Falcon business jet, BELL & ROSS paid tribute to the civil aviation industry in the 1960s with Vintage Falcon models. In the same year, the two companies joined forces again to commemorate the most successful multi-purpose fighter on the market: the Rafale.

 The BR 03-94 Rafale is also known as the fighter of the same name for its versatility. The BR 03-94 Rafale can be worn in any daily activity, but also for test pilots, fighter pilots, and any ordinary person.

Marcel. ‘If the plane looks good, it must fly well,’ Marcel Dassault often said. BELL & ROSS adheres to this motto and applies this concept: no matter how delicate an item is, it can’t be more perfect than letting it show its original intention. BELL & ROSS imitated Rafale’s BR 03-94 Rafale watch, celebrating this invincible aircraft.
 RAFALE: Multipurpose fighter with multiple technologies
In the mid-1980s, when the Rafale program was still in its infancy, the French Air Force and the Navy stated that they needed to replace seven different types of fighter aircraft with a multipurpose aircraft. Rafale was born.
This high-tech fighter entered service with the French Navy and the Air Force in 2004 and 2006, respectively, and successfully completed missions previously accomplished by several aircraft: air defense and suppression, bombing, long-range air strikes, anti-ship operations, reconnaissance, nuclear deterrence and fighter Refueling between the air. This ‘multi-purpose’ fighter can perform multiple missions in a single mission, such as conducting air strikes and air-to-air operations simultaneously, and even launching long-range air-to-air missiles in low-altitude attacks. Rafale is also ‘interoperable’ and plays a role in joint operations with allies through common technical standards and procedures.

 BELL & ROSS imitates Rafale’s BR 03-94 Rafale watch to celebrate the invincible aircraft

The shape of Rafale is based on the aerodynamic design of a triangular wing with a front wing (a small wing at the front of the fuselage) that gives the aircraft excellent flexibility. The cockpit is equipped with a fully digital automatic flight control system to ensure maximum safety and operational flexibility, making pilot operations easier. The attack and navigation system enables it to perform terrain tracking in an automatic mode and stealth flight, with ‘super high survival rates’ in enemy airspace. In addition, the shape of the fuselage and the composite materials used make Rafale difficult to capture by the radar. Rafale is equipped with Safran thrusters and is equipped with two Snecma M88-4 afterburning turbofan engines. Each engine can provide 5 tons of propulsion when dry and 7.5 tons of propulsion when afterburning. The maximum speed of the aircraft can reach Mach 1.8. At no load, the aircraft weighs only 10 tons and its internal fuel tank capacity is 4.7 tons of kerosene. The aircraft’s external load capacity is as high as 9.5 tons (14 load points), making it the only fighter in the world capable of carrying nearly 1.5 times its own weight!
Equipped with Thales’ RBE2 active electronic scanning array radar, the aircraft can ‘see’ anywhere. It can also carry multiple missiles of different shapes at the same time, which is why this aircraft is called ‘multipurpose’. There are currently three Rafale models, all of which are based on the same rack and weapon system: single-seat (Rafale C) and two-seat (Rafale B) models can all take off from land bases, and another single-seat model (Rafale M) The landing gear and brake hooks have been strengthened to take off from the aircraft carrier. 90% of the three models have the same parts. Moderate size, extraordinary power, outstanding agility and outstanding stealth capabilities-Rafale is the technology of Dassault Aircraft and the 500 companies involved in the project.
Innovative fighter and unique chronograph
In the process of exploring the perfect and practical watch, engineers, watchmakers, designers and professional pilots use their experience in the military and aviation fields to leverage their strengths and come up with an original concept: an instrument watch. Because aeronautical instrumentation is an absolute benchmark in terms of legibility, reliability and performance, BR 03 uses the same basic design principles as cockpit timepieces. As a practical watch tailor-made for professionals, it vividly demonstrates BELL & ROSS’s ‘form must serve function’ philosophy.
High-tech ceramic case
Like Rafale, which uses innovative high-performance materials, the BR 03-94 Ra-fale watch case is made of ceramic. This material has an unassailable position in the aviation industry, and its applications include manufacturing parts that are resistant to high temperatures, acids, corrosion and erosion. High-tech ceramics are also used in the design of heat shields and rocket heads. Ceramic is an ultra-strong material that is close to diamond in hardness and generally does not change color after dyeing. Ceramics are also lighter than steel, less prone to allergies, and temperature-controlling, making them more comfortable for the wearer.

BR 03-94 Rafale watch with BR-CAL.301 self-winding mechanical movement, limited edition of 500 pieces

In order to create the BR 03-94 ceramic watch, the designers of Bell & Ross had to rethink the already complicated case structure. Therefore, the heart of BR 03-94 is its movement and stainless steel case, all parts are protected by ceramic cover, front cover and bottom cover. The eight screws exposed outside the ceramic case are practical. They secure the entire watch together like a clip, ensuring the case’s integrity and water resistance. BELL & ROSS designers have also modified the shape and proportions of the entire watch. The final result is not disappointed: strong, dynamic, confident, and masculine.
Chronograph with RAFALE body color
The BR 03-94 Rafale precision case is equipped with a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement, and its reliability has been repeatedly tested. As a basic tool for measuring short time in aircraft navigation system, chronograph is one of the main devices on the aircraft. The BR 03-94 Rafale uses the unique design features of this classic fighter, with a distinct personality at a glance. The stealthy dark-black ceramic case references the anti-reflective color of the aircraft’s cockpit dashboard. The dial is in Rafale’s unique color: camouflage gray. The font of the numbers subtly echoes the registration number on the fuselage. The hands of the chronograph function have a bright orange needle tip (in the aviation industry, this color is used for basic functions and test flights), ensuring excellent legibility. The tachymeter scale is on the flange, and the word “tachymeter” also uses bright orange. The last detail is the small seconds hand at 6 o’clock to assist the chronograph, imitating the unique outline of the fighter. The BR 03-94 watch comes with a black natural rubber strap.
The essence of RAFALE watches
This year, BELL & ROSS celebrated the infamous Rafale fighter with a chronograph. The watch reflects the various characteristics of the fighter in many ways. Serving highly functional shapes and colors, innovative high-performance materials, clear and easy-to-read dials, and highly sophisticated movements, BELL & ROSS is incorporated in the BR 03-94 Rafale watch

In 2013, the 180th anniversary of the founding of Jaeger-LeCoultre. On this occasion, the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory launched the Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee. The 10th masterpiece of the Hybris Mechanica large complication series.

   As the core work of three commemorative watches in tribute to Mr. Antoine LeCoultre, this new timepiece combines the superb technology of the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory with the elegant decoration bred by the long-standing watchmaking craftsmanship In one, pocket watches manufactured by the watch factory in the 19th century also gave the watches unique aesthetics.

   The Jaeger-LeCoultre Tourbillon will lead a new watch experience in the 21st century. This unprecedented ball flying tourbillon uses blued gold balance and ball hairspring to show its truly outstanding performance. And another masterpiece of the Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee is the perfect combination of the precision performance of the ball tourbillon and the instantaneous digital timer. Large complication.

Appearance articles:

   The watch uses a new ultra-white platinum case with a diameter of 43.4 and a thickness of 15.5 mm. The bezel and lugs are polished to create a subtle contrast to the satin-finished sides, highlighting the watch’s ultimate elegance. Water-resistant to 50 meters.

   The thickness of the watch is 15.5 millimeters. Of course, the star’s tourbillon determines that the convex radian of the watch diameter is much larger than that of a normal watch. We can clearly see this from the above picture.

   This watch is the tenth masterpiece of Hybrid Mechanica’s large-scale complication series. It is equipped with three independent dials to display the time, and the hour and minute dials are decorated with traditional silver-plated pearlescent luster. The new prince-like hands perfectly match the other elements that make up the timepiece. The traditional rhodium-plated sunburst dial makes the chronograph display more legible and the day / night display is stamped. The main splint is carefully forged by hand by the watchmaker in the watch factory workshop using an ancient technique.

   The watch uses a sapphire crystal design, and the movement splint is presented in front of us like an artwork. At this moment, I believe no one will be impressed by the superb craftsmanship!

The watch is equipped with a black alligator strap, and the white gold folding clasp has an adjustable length device that can be adjusted to the millimeter according to changes in temperature or humidity to ensure an absolutely comfortable fit in any situation. . In fact, the perfect adjustment provided by the integrated add-on device on this folding clasp is composed of a series of complex designs and more than a hundred parts.

Features:

腕表 This watch can be said to be a collection of multiple complex functions in one, set at three o’clock position exquisite day and night display dial, whether it is the image design or the meticulous care of the materials, all reflect the excellence of Jaeger-LeCoultre.

The watch’s chronograph is controlled by a single button, and the button at the two o’clock position is also reminiscent of the great masterpiece of the late 19th century. The instant digital timer developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre is the first timer combined with a spherical flying tourbillon. The simple and elegant second hand runs on a circular dial and is connected to the timer. When the operation stops, the pointer tip is accurate Point to the specific time on the display. The classic scale ring from 0 to 60 with a 10-digit display makes the time clearer and easier to read. The watchmakers of the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory replaced the traditional way of counting the revolutions on an additional timer with an instantaneous digital display. The time dial consists of two large windows.

  
Obviously, the double-frame tourbillon, which rotates precisely and synchronously around two axes, makes the watch offset the effect of gravity no matter where it is. The Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee is particularly eye-catching.
The double tourbillon frame runs precisely, the outer frame rotates around the axis once a minute, the inner frame rotates once every 24 seconds-2.5 revolutions per minute-this achievement is not only achieved by watch factory engineers and watchmakers Excellent creativity also relies on modern cutting-edge equipment like 5-axis automatic production units. Finally, the use of aluminum as an ultra-light material makes the combined mechanism composed of more than a hundred parts less than 1 gram, which is a feat in the field of micromechanics.
Engineers and watchmakers at the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory excel in various watchmaking techniques, and now they combine superb technological inventions with this fine workmanship: they have developed a new process for the aluminum tourbillon frame The surface is specially treated to improve its reflective performance. In fact, the ultra-light texture and corrosion resistance of aluminum are usually associated with low gloss, which considerably reduces the light reflectivity of aluminum. This material, which is plated on the surface of aluminum, has reflective properties, allowing light to easily enter the inside of the spherical tourbillon, thereby achieving a dazzling effect.
新 新 A new element in the structure has also attracted much attention. The movement of the movement is placed on a blued 14K gold balance, and its three-dimensional effect is amazing. Following the cylindrical balance spring of the second-generation ball tourbillon, watchmakers in the watch factory have developed a ball balance spring, which is equipped with two end curves to ensure the excellent timing performance of the movement.

Movement articles:

Watch is equipped with Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 176, the latest manual winding movement. The development, manufacture and assembly of this movement are completed in the large complex watch workshop of the watch factory, and a timing function is added to the ball tourbillon. The instant digital timer developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre is the first timer combined with a spherical flying tourbillon. Another subtlety is that the Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee is the chronograph of the traditional traditional tourbillon series. The controller is controlled by a single button, reminiscent of the great masterpiece of the late nineteenth century.

Summary: As one of the world’s top watch brands, Jaeger-LeCoultre brought us a lot of surprises at the Geneva Watch Show. This watch is also perfect for long-established brand technology and ultra-modern design concepts. Are combined together, but it seems that the price is also a million levels.

This Time Between Blancpain And Rolex, I Chose Blancpain

It is not too late to get to the topic. Recently, I have tossed a few watches in and out, and the Blancpain 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE I got just a few days ago is the most heartwarming one, because I struggled for several days before buying this watch.

This time, between Rolex and Blancpain, I chose Blancpain.

   Men rarely get tangled when buying things, they see it, give money, take things away, and don’t grind. This time, I rarely tangled because of shopping, and finally got tangled because of Blancpain and Rolex. Most people tangled Blancpain 50 Rolex and Rolex are tangled water ghosts. But it wasn’t the water ghosts that made me uncertain a few days ago, but Rolex’s new platinum ring DJ 126334 using the new 3235 movement. The public price of Blancpain 50SBATHYSCAPHE and Rolex DJ 126334 is almost the same, both are more than 70,000 yuan. Both watches are relatively new styles. Although the two watches are not a type, I like them very much, so it is difficult to decide for a while. Later, after thinking about 2-3 days, I decided to buy 50 yuan. The main reason is that Rolex is everywhere, and you can buy it at any time, not at this time. In addition, Rolex also bought a few, not bad for this one. Blancpain 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE This watch has been very hot for two years, and it has not poisoned me too much. Buy Blancpain (Blancpain 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE is the watch with the Chinese name “Deep Submersible”).

Rolex 126334 (above) and Blancpain 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE (below) struggled for two days and chose Blancpain.
I wanted to buy steel, but I bought titanium.

   As you all know, Blancpain 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE has three kinds of shells, steel shell, titanium shell, ceramic shell. I want to buy steel, because although the ceramic case is wear-resistant (the hardness of Blancpain ceramics is 10 times that of stainless steel), the surface of the ceramic case is scratched and broken, and it is more troublesome to repair than the steel case. Some players broke the news before, saying that changing a ceramic case is basically the price of a new watch. In fact, it is not so exaggerated. I later learned from Blancpain that the ceramic case is about 20,000 yuan. However, I am poor, so I still care about this money. The steel shell is not afraid of bumping and touching, it can be re-polished and brushed if there are scratches. Although the titanium shell is not too afraid of bumping, the titanium shell is not easy to re-brush and wire drawing. So I want a steel shell. But later in the process of looking for a watch, I found that the price of the titanium case is very good. The public price of the titanium case is more than 80,000. I think the actual price is very valuable, and I finally bought the titanium case.

Blancpain 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE has three kinds of shells, steel shell, titanium shell, ceramic shell. The black disk is titanium and the gray disk is steel.
   In addition, I would like to talk about the price of buying a watch. When I wrote the market price of some watches, some players said, ‘I have never seen such a low price for your price’; ‘If you have this price, give me a car’. Because everyone’s way of looking at and buying watches is different, many players either go to domestic and foreign specialty stores, or through purchasing. I don’t go to specialty stores or buy anything, so the price of buying a watch will be lower than these methods. New players please look for specialty stores (guaranteed), old players please show their magic.
I have always lamented the low-key of Bathyscape.

   Long before I got the Blancpain 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE, I was sighed by the low-key of this watch. After I got this watch, the feeling deepened again.

Looks like a watch with a strong sense of tooling. In fact, the materials are very luxurious and hidden.
   Blancpain 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE is a luxury sports watch, but it hides the ‘luxury’. Blancpain 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE is a tool watch (professional diving watch), with a strong sense of professionalism and tooling, instead of polishing and brushing the combination of the case and bracelet, as well as the dial, watch The ring treatment puts the sense of luxury directly outside the watch. The luxury of BATHYSCAPHE is in the watch. K-gold hands, K-gold hour markers, K-gold auto-tortoise, K-gold auto-tortoise intentionally plated in black. The matte titanium case, especially the lugs, has been polished at various angles. With a magnifying glass on the 1315 movement, you can see that all the edges of the movement, the screws, and the gears have been polished. I once saw a foreign player write ‘BATHYSCAPHE’s second hand is a work of art’. The hands of this watch are polished very well, completely black polish, that is, polished to the point where it can no longer reflect light of any color. From the front, it has become black, which is impressive. Unlike the highly recognizable water ghosts and imperial oaks, Blancpain 50 噚 looks like ‘normal’, but the city is very deep.

The 1315 self-winding movement used by Blancpain 50YBATHYSCAPHE. The picture above shows the 1315 movement without the automatic top.
Although I don’t value the technical configuration of the watch, the configuration of BATHYSCAPHE is indeed higher than most luxury sports watches.

   Technical configuration For the watch, I think it is like the technical configuration on the car. Such as LCD instrument panel, head-up display, 360-degree ring shadow, and line assistance. These technology configurations have nothing to do with the engine, gearbox, and chassis, but they can indeed increase the value of the car and bring satisfaction (of course, some people like these, others find it useless). The configuration of Blancpain 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE is indeed high. Ceramic bezel, the scale on the ceramic ring is liquid metal (wear-resistant, does not fade). The case of the titanium case version is ceramicized titanium. After the titanium has been treated, a ceramic film (abrasion resistance) is formed on the titanium case. The 1315 movement has 3 mainsprings, 120 hours and 5 days of power, no card adjustment, fine adjustment by K gold square head screws on the balance wheel, and silicon spring (anti-magnetic). In the luxury sports watches of the same level, there should be no watches equipped with more than 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE. Even if Rolex uses the new generation of the new letter 3235 caliber sea ambassador, many configurations can not reach 50 噚. Therefore, besides ‘Hundred Years King Fei’ and ‘The Strongest Fighting Force’, I also empathize with ‘Heaven and Earth Conscience’ as true love. (Each person values ​​the watch differently. Some people value the technical data, and some people don’t.

A few details that please me.

First, I really like the BATHYSCAPHE watch. As we all know, Rolex’s watch glass is convex, a bit higher than the bezel. So Rolex’s glass is very easy to poke. A lot of times I don’t know how to sting. Wearing it for a long time, there is a slight burr on the glass, and a pit on the other, which affects the appearance of the watch. The only solution is to change the glass. I’ve always wondered why the glass is made a bit higher … The mirror and bezel of the Blancpain BATHYSCAPHE are flat so that it won’t get into the glass. This is very good.
Secondly, I like the crown of BATHYSCAPHE very much. The crown of the BATHYSCAPHE is very large, and it is screwed back after unlocking. Some watches have locks, but the crown is very small. After unlocking, it is difficult to turn it back. It wo n’t be screwed for a long time. The crown of the Blancpain BATHYSCAPHE works well.

Third, I like the 120-hour power of the 1315 movement and can go for 5 days. Some power watches only have 2 days (about 48 hours), and stop without wearing for 2 days. If there is only one watch, this is fine. However, if there are several watches, each time you pick up a watch, you must adjust the time and date again, which is very troublesome. BATHYSCAPHE has 5 days of motivation. If you don’t wear it for a few more days, pick it up and walk around, and wear it directly.

   At the same time, please pay attention to the strap (except everyone). Blancpain BATHYSCAPHE uses adhesive tape for nautical canvas outsourcing. This can make this watch have a strong sense of formality, easy to match shirts and dresses (some foreign enthusiasts call this watch a vintage diving style dress watch, I think it makes sense). But the tape itself will consume a lot of money. In addition, the BATHYSCAPHE watch is very sharp in all corners, and the buckle is also very sharp. Players who are concerned should pay more attention.

The public price of Blancpain 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE is between the Royal Oak and Water Ghost, filling the gap and in a good position.
The Blancpain 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE is in an excellent position.

   Since the first few years of Blancpain’s BATHYSCAPHE, BATHYSCAPHE has been on fire. BATHYSCAPHE is in a good position. The price is cheaper than the 45mm classic 50 噚, and the public price is less than 100,000. The steel shell version of this watch is 79500, the titanium case is 87500, and the ceramic case is 98000 (in addition, there is a gold case version with a price of 191,000). The price from more than 70,000 to nearly 100,000 is at Rolex. Between Ghost and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, it fills a void in luxury sports watches. Because there are too many Rolex water ghosts on the market, I did n’t choose to change the taste before. Now, brothers who do n’t feel water ghosts can get 50 噚 BATHYSCAPHE (Although I am also a laborer, I only like water ghost).

The Export Value Of Swiss Watches In July Is Now Increasing, Hong Kong Market Trend Is Better

The Swiss Federation of Clocks and Watches announced that the value of Swiss watches in July increased by 2.2% year-on-year to 2.02 billion Swiss francs. The report shows that the Chinese market is still declining, but the Hong Kong market has stopped the sharp decline in the past few months Trend to maintain its position as the largest market with greater advantages. This article analyzes several reasons why the Hong Kong market trend is better.

 Swiss Federation of Watches and Clocks announces that the value of Swiss watch exports in July increased by 2.2% year-on-year to 2.02 billion Swiss francs. This is the first time that the organization recorded an export value of more than 2 billion Swiss francs in July, making July a historical export. The fourth highest month. Swiss watch export values ​​in May and June recorded year-on-year decreases of 3.9% and 3.1% respectively.

 Citibank analyst Thomas Chauvet pointed out that the July rebound showed a further normalization of the export market: ‘We believe that weak demand for high-end watches in mainland China will limit dealers’ willingness to purchase, while retail terminal sales in Hong Kong and Macau have begun to recover.’

 The value of Swiss watch exports in July was 1,914.8 million Swiss francs, an increase of 1.9% over the same period last year. The export value of other categories of products increased by 6% year-on-year to 105.3 million Swiss francs.

 After a brief increase in June (a year-on-year increase of 10.6%), Swiss watch’s export value to China fell again in July, falling 9.7% year-on-year to 111.3 million Swiss francs. It was also surpassed by Italy, Germany and France to Switzerland. The export market ranked sixth, and its export share also fell from 6.7% in June to 5.6% in July, showing signs of decline. Hong Kong stopped the sharp decline in the past few months (the decline in May and June was more than 15%). The value of exports in July fell by only 0.9% compared with the same period of last year. Together with the United States, it maintained its first and second largest markets with a large advantage. status. Italy and Germany recorded year-on-year increases of 9.8% and 13.2%, respectively, while France dropped 18.1% from the same period last year.

 Once upon a time, the Chinese market supported half of the sales of Swiss watches. The demand and consumption power of Swiss watches in the Chinese market made many Swiss watch brands speed up the pace of entering the Chinese market and take pride in opening stores in China. However, the market orientation under the market economy is affected by various factors. One of the actions of the Chinese government’s anti-corruption action at the end of 2012 was to combat the giving of expensive gifts. This directly caused the haze of Swiss watch exports to China from the end of 2012 to 2013. Export data in recent months have further confirmed that signs of decline in the Chinese market have continued.

 In contrast to the Hong Kong market, as a free trade area, international goods have preferential tax reduction and exemption policies in the Hong Kong market, goods are easier to import, and prices are cheaper because of preferential international taxes and fees. The Swiss Watch Association announced that the Swiss watch in July stopped the sharp decline in the past few months in Hong Kong and ranked first in Swiss watch sales. The main reasons are as follows:

 The openness of Hong Kong to mainland tourists is the main reason for the growth of Hong Kong’s retail industry, which has also boosted the sales of Swiss watches exported to Hong Kong. In July, it is China’s summer holiday and peak tourist season. Many tourists travel to Hong Kong from the mainland to travel and consume. Mainland travelers have always regarded Hong Kong as an important distribution center for luxury purchases in China, in addition to direct purchases abroad. Swiss watches, as one of the luxury goods that Chinese people have always loved, are quick and convenient to buy Swiss watches in Hong Kong during holidays. Therefore, the stoppage of the value of Swiss watches to Hong Kong in July was also affected by the peak tourist season in July, and the influx of mainland tourists and consumption were not related.

 In addition, although the world economy is still in a depressed environment, the Asian market is still the largest consumer market for Swiss watches, and many European brands have set their sights on the Asian market. Therefore, the Geneva International Haute Horlogerie Salon (SIHH) Exhibiting Committee will host the first Haute Horlogerie exhibition entitled “Clocks and Miracles” at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from September 25th to 28th, 2013. The tradition and innovation of the watch industry.

 Many Swiss watch brands have made strong publicity work for the Haute Horlogerie show as early as June and July. As the host of the first Asian Haute Horlogerie Exhibition, Hong Kong will also serve as a business card to promote the image of the city. Watch markets in Asia and watch enthusiasts will also gather in Hong Kong. This is self-evident for the favorable factors brought by the recent Swiss watch sales in Hong Kong.

 Another reason is that Swiss watches have established a brand image in the minds of consumers over the years-precise timekeeping and quality assurance. These deep-rooted brand images have brought a huge fan base to Swiss watches and passed on to consumers. China is constantly expanding. This kind of understanding of the brand will not be changed because of the depression of the world economic environment. Although the Chinese market is in a state of decline, it is not difficult to find that the first Asian Fine Watch Fair was chosen to be held in Hong Kong, China. Hong Kong’s market position as a free trade area is obvious. Although China now suppresses the consumption of some watches under the policy, China’s huge consumer group is still a delicious scent for Swiss watches.
