The new Patrimony Traditionnelle heritage automatic winding watch is undoubtedly part of the true horological tradition. With its pure lines and beautifully balanced proportions, bold details are emphasized by the silky bezel, the knurled pattern around the screw-in transparent sapphire crystal case back, the 18K pink gold hour markers, and the elegant toffee hands. Its classic and timeless characteristics and aesthetic value.
This new watch is made entirely according to the latest Geneva mark standards. The test of the new standard is no longer limited to the certification of the movement. It is also a strict inspection of the entire watch. The new inspection standard was officially announced on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the Geneva Seal last year. It represents a major advancement in high-quality labels and echoes the needs of customers who are seeking for better watches that meet strict standards.
The gold case complements the silver-finished milky white curved dial, and time is on the dial to continue its renewed journey. 18K pink gold hour markers, supplemented by a black minute circle, simple hands dance on the dial, reflecting the elegant traditional watchmaking process, reminiscent of a timeless, pure watch tradition.
Beneath the classic-lined case, the ultra-thin self-winding Calibre 1120 with an excellent reputation boasted. This movement was developed and produced in Geneva’s most demanding fine watchmaking tradition, with a vibration frequency of 2.75 Hz (19,800 vibrations per hour) and a power reserve of approximately 40 hours. Creating such a movement has extremely strict requirements on micro-fabrication: the surface of the movement is decorated with a fine Côtes de Genève Geneva decorative pattern, and the bevel treatment and chamfering are all hand-carved. Even the screw head handling is quite neat.
In order to meet this shining example of mechanical genius, Vacheron Constantin’s new Patrimony Traditionnelle Self Winding automatic winding watch uses the commonly used 18K pink gold case, combined with two rarely associated standard designs. Although its elegant and slim shape proudly reveals its classic ancestry, the 41 mm diameter undoubtedly adds a contemporary dimension to it. See the beauty of Caliber 1120 ultra-thin movement through the sapphire crystal case back.

Twenty years ago, the launch of the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Series, which became the representative of the ‘watching the spirit of travel and looking at the broad world’ in the fine watchmaking industry. In 2016, Vacheron Constantin adhered to the tradition of fine watchmaking in Geneva, reimagining this iconic classic series with a new perspective, blending a new design aesthetic and a unique inner spirit. As a unique brand masterpiece, the Overseas Vertical and Horizontal series combines sports style with casual elegance, outstanding performance and good style. The blue dial design seems to lead us into the marine world.
New black dial
Both tough temperament and delicate beauty
Two models: automatic and chronograph
In 2018, Vacheron Constantin continued its efforts to launch a black dial with a stainless steel case version, allowing the Overseas Vertical and Horizontal series to shine a new luster.
The characteristic hexagon bezel, the self-winding movement developed and manufactured by the brand, and the design of the replaceable bracelet / strap, all key elements of the Overseas vertical and horizontal series are re-interpreted in the new black dial version, highlighting The collection’s unique design style and superb watchmaking skills.
There are two options for the overseas vertical and horizontal series black dial: a low-key and exquisite self-winding three-hand watch and a chronograph, which can meet the needs of any occasion and style. The three small dials of the chronograph have a silver tone for added legibility. The black-and-white ‘Panda-style’ visual design is derived from a timepiece built for motorsports in the 1960s. The contrast of dark and light colors makes the dial display more eye-catching, highlighting the readability of the chronograph indication.
The chronograph is equipped with a 5200 self-winding movement. Through the transparent sapphire crystal case back, you can admire the 22K gold rotor with the wind rose compass pattern. The dual barrel movement with column wheel can coordinate the start, stop and reset functions of the chronograph. At the same time, the longitudinal coupling clutch can effectively avoid the impact of hand vibration on the start of the chronograph.
In keeping with the trend, Vacheron Constantin launched the concept of quick-changeable bracelet / strap two years ago, and the new black dial watch continues this iconic design. The wearer can quickly change the bracelet / strap through the modular replacement device, without any additional tools, to easily create a unique look that highlights his personal style. The metal bracelet is decorated with a semi-Maltese cross pattern at the links, which is suitable for casual style. The leather strap is very fashionable and the rubber strap is more sporty.

ROLEX presents the new Cellini series, showing the classic style and timeless elegance of traditional clocks and watches in a contemporary spirit. This new collection is made up of 12 classic models, each of which combines expertise and exquisite craftsmanship, fully showing the timelessness of Rolex’s watchmaking tradition.
With simple and elegant lines, noble and magnificent materials, and exquisite luxury decoration, every detail conforms to the laws of watchmaking. However, this new series of watches is not limited to the beautiful designs of yesteryear. Inspired by the well-respected artist, goldsmith and Holy See sculptor Benvenuto Cellini of the Italian Renaissance, the Rolex Cellini series returns to classical roots on the one hand, and reinterprets the essence of the middle with modern methods, perfect harmonious. These watches contain Rolex’s watchmaking tradition, reminiscent of contemporary immortal architecture, with its layout proportions and minimalist lines, which are cleverly matched with modern space and light and shadow. The new Cellini watch breaks away from the traditional constraints and completely becomes the guardian of time. It is also a symbol of luxury style and truly reflects the extraordinary value of art de vivre.
The new Cellini series represents the most exquisite and charming part of the watchmaking tradition, which is absolutely noble and elegant. The case is made by Rolex’s exclusive foundry and is available in 18ct white gold or eternal rose gold. The classic circular design with a diameter of 39 mm is the brand’s traditional logo. The delicate shape of the ears, polished finish, and double outer ring composed of a dome-shaped outer ring and a triangular pitted outer ring make the watch unique . Among them, the triangular pit pattern symbolizing Rolex is used for the screw-in case back, which is rounded like the old design. The trumpet-shaped screw-down crown underlines the delicate aesthetics of the Cellini series.
Another dial also quotes the brand’s watchmaking knowledge and tradition. Each dial is decorated with lacquer, or decorated with black or silver-plated classic ‘rayon flammé de la gloire’ radial pattern, and is equipped with gold three-dimensional hour markers. The dial layout depends on the different functions of the watch. The entire Cellini series can be Divided into three major categories. The Cellini Date adds the calendar function through the hands of the sub-dial, which is both practical and practical. Finally, the Cellini Dual Time can display the time in two time zones at the same time, and the sub-dial window in the second time zone is equipped with elegant sun and moon day and night indicators. All new Cellini watches are equipped with extremely precise mechanical self-winding movements, all of which are certified by the Observatory as precision timepieces and manufactured by Rolex. For the purest traditional style, these watches are equipped with a bright black or brown crocodile leather strap, stitching trim, and 18 ct gold buckle, which appropriately reflects the elegance of a gentleman.
The essence of Cellini Time
Hours, minutes and seconds are essential elements of daily timing. Cellini Time knows nothing, strives to grasp the present, and captures every moment of every moment. The simple and clear dial not only pays tribute to the timeless principles of traditional watchmaking, but also reinterprets the essence of the watch in an elegant and modern style, including long and stylish Roman numerals, separated by a minute track moved to the center of the dial, The long o’clock mark near the end of the pointer. With this extraordinary timepiece’s self-winding chronograph movement, the faceted and double-edged sword-shaped hands can run accurately every hour, every second.
Cellini Time is available in four models, with black or white lacquered dial, and a 39 mm case in 18 ct white gold or eternal rose gold for an elegant and contemporary look
Cellini Date, elegant day and night

In addition to the hour, minute, and second display, Cellini Date adds a calendar display function, showing its elegant style, prominent tradition and poetic. A small, gold-plated subdial with a radial pattern at the 3 o’clock position displays the full sequence of the day of the month. Just like the old clock, the small gold hands indicate the current day and day. This calendar display is set on a single dial, witnessing time, this outstanding timepiece is always with you, whether yesterday, today or tomorrow.

Cellini Dual Time
太阳 The sun rises over there, and the day here is about to end. As the night gets darker, the sun slowly disappears from the horizon, and under the Cellini Dual Time dial window, the sun slowly emerges. Cellini Dual Time allows the wearer to know the time in different regions, and can read the time in two places at the same time with a glance. At the 6 o’clock position of the small Phnom Penh sub-dial, you can know the time display of other parties. You can know the time of your loved ones when you travel abroad, and you can also check the time of the country where your business partner is. To distinguish between day and night time, the sun or moon logo appears on the subdial window at 9 o’clock. The large central pointer with a double-edged sword shape always accompanies the wearer on the journey. The hour hand can also be adjusted independently by continuing the ‘jump’ to display the time in the time zone in which it is located without affecting the normal operation of the watch or the accuracy of the automatic winding movement.
Cellini Dual Time features a low-key luxury image with alligator-stitched crocodile leather straps, showing the Rolex brand spirit
Some square models, which are rare in plum watches, have classic design and are suitable for both inside and outside.
TITONI Swiss Wallet’s new Wall Street watch is a perfect combination of classic and fashion. The square surface design is tough and noble. This series of watches have undergone the most stringent production tests. The three-segment design of the all-steel strap is specially designed for the curvature of the wrist to ensure comfortable wearing. It is definitely an option for both inside and outside.
In addition to the beautifully curved arched surface glass, the transparent sapphire caseback of the Wall Street watch shows the precise movement of the structure. The back cover is fitted with screws, which is strong and sturdy. The laser mark is engraved on the automatic tourbillon and ‘of Switzerland [made in Switzerland, hand-crafted. The case is specially brushed and polished around the side, and the bezel is polished to enhance the layering. The surface is black and silver, respectively. There are two types of gray. There are also styles in which zircon is used to replace the digital display time, adding an elegant style. The watch comes with a belt and a steel belt for purchase, and both are equipped with a folding buckle engraved with TITONI.
The Wall Street watch collection combines classic design and outstanding Swiss quality, revealing a distinctive fashion charm, which is definitely suitable for executives who pursue the taste of life and talk generously. This ingenious work is assembled and tested at the original factory in Grenchen, Switzerland, to ensure quality. Since its establishment in 1919, TITONI has been owned by the founder’s Shrop family and has been rooted in the town of Grinchen, Switzerland, where Plum Watch has passed on their traditional watchmaking techniques and experience from generation to generation, and has developed a strong base.
TITONI Master Series has been attracting the attention of users and collectors with its classic shape and precise observatory movement since its launch in 2006. This year marks the 90th anniversary of the brand, TITONI decided to launch the third generation of the Master Series chronometer watch, to continue the classic.
The third-generation Master Series watch with a diameter of 40mm has a classic and fashionable design, and the delicate texture around the surface is the symbol of Master Series’ elegant design. The transparent back cover uses sapphire glass, so that the “Côtes de Genève” nevada pattern, the Pantheon logo, the name of the Master Series and the word TITONI are engraved and polished on the automatic rotor of the movement. The emerald-green TITONI logo’s special handle and three-hand configuration are more handmade and precise. The third-generation Master Series watch is equipped with a leather or stainless steel strap; the surface options are black and white, respectively, to set off the wearer’s personal style.
Each Master Series chronometer watch is equipped with a movement certified by COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres), the official observatory of Switzerland, and a certificate issued by it. There is one on the movement, the case and the certificate Corresponding number. In order to obtain the Swiss Observatory certification, it must pass a total of 3 strict standards for 15 days, including temperature test (8, 23, 38 degrees), five different orientation tests (3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, 9 o’clock up) , Surface up and down] and the daily error of the watch between the standard of +6 to -4 seconds, we can see that the Master Series process is absolutely meticulous.
TITONI Master Series has always been known for its outstanding functions and classic appearance. This year TITONI launched the women’s version for the first time, preventing men from enjoying superb Swiss watchmaking skills. In order to highlight the feminine charm, the series introduces new elements. The large mother-of-pearl dial is set with sparkling diamonds at 12 and 6 o’clock, and it is matched with a pink leather strap.
At Basel International Watch & Jewellery Show this year, Patek Philippe launched the Ref. 5370P-001 two-second chronograph watch for the first time. Now that a few months have passed, now the editor will take everyone to review this excellent creation and talk about their shallow opinions and insights.
The 5370 is a brand new model, but it is intended to be a symbol of the future, as we understand it: it will not be produced at regular speeds. Except for 5950A pillow-shaped stainless steel and 5959P ultra-thin double-second chronograph watch (both equipped with CH27-525 self-made ultra-thin movement), the new 5370P-001 is the only one with dual-second chronograph function and equipped with Watch models with different homemade movements (CH29-535). Seeing it, some people may think of the ancient 5004 and the 5204 replacing 5004, but the latter also has a perpetual calendar function.
Patek Philippe celebrated its 175th anniversary and many commemorative models are dazzling, but we can boldly assert that 5370P-001 is one of the most attractive models launched by Patek Philippe in the past October or even in ten years. Now, let’s take a closer look at the look of this watch with real pictures.
The 5370P-001 case is made of platinum, with a diameter of 41 mm and a thickness of 13.5 mm. Compared with 5950, the atmosphere is more stable. The case is paired with a delicate and beautiful convex bezel. Of course, whether it is a little more personality of 5370P-001 or a little more elegant of other thinner models, everyone has their own taste preferences.
5370P-001 is very classic and very attractive when viewed from the front. From the shape of the lugs to the convex bezel, we all have a familiar feeling, yes, Ref.130! Observing Ref.130 in the above figure for comparison, you can also find a similar strap bolt protruding from the lug, which is more classic ‘penetrating’ design.
Observing from the side, it is easy to find the long grooved ring that connects the lugs on both sides. In my memory, this is the first time in Patek Philippe’s history to adopt such a design. The watch ring is brushed and polished, and the texture curve shows a subtle radian. It is not easy to achieve this retouch. Imagine that if the case side adopts an ordinary shape design, its final effect should not be compared with the present.
It needs to be emphasized that when you really appreciate the 5370P-001 on the spot, this is the second element you notice after the plate. This kind of watch ring design gives 5370P-001 individuality and characteristics, making it unique. It is different from other Patek Philippe chronographs that are well-known before. It also brings Patek Philippe chronographs into a new aesthetic field.
The ‘ear-piercing’ design is more classic, and the convex round platinum structure can hide the strap hole on the back of the strap, and it is also an excellent decoration. Careful observation of the real pictures, the end of the long groove on the side of the case is perfectly joined with the convex round platinum structure and integrated with the lugs.
Crown and buttons
Usually, if the crown is too large, the case side with the crown will appear very unbalanced. The 5370P-001’s crown size specifications are just as desirable.
Two timing function buttons can control the start, stop and reset functions of the timing device, and there is another button at the crown to control the start and stop of the two-second chase hand function. Not only is the structure symmetrical, but the functions are also very convenient and practical. The top of the button is polished and the sides are brushed, just in harmony with the case finishing process.
The dial is made of white gold and is decorated with enamel. Firstly, apply the enamel powder evenly on the dial, then bake it in a 850 ° C kiln, and then use precise controlled cooling technology to gradually cool and solidify it for polishing.
What is really difficult to control is the manufacture of the enamel dial without any trace of impurities. You know, compared to the white dial, the black dial is particularly conspicuous if there are residual impurities. From these pictures you can very clearly observe how stunning the 5370P-001 dial looks, the ordinary lacquered dial cannot be compared with it at all. In my opinion, no other Patek Philippe model can do this.
As for the charm of the Platinum Breguet block, we have already experienced it on the 5170G.
Personally, I usually pay more attention to the combination of the dark plate and the white transfer. The contrast between the two is too sharp and often lacks refined and elegant. Of course, I also understand that it may bring a modern or casual atmosphere to very classic watches.
The 5370P-001 enamel dial has a deep gloss and a very polished finish. The reflective light on the black dial surface makes the contrast more consistent. The white transfer scale is subtle in thickness, pleasing to the eye, and looks very enjoyable. In contrast, the scale of the new 5905P sub-dial is slightly too thick, reducing the elegance, and it is easy to guide people to pay more attention to the side of the dial. 5370P-001? Just right.
From 3970, 5070, 5970, 5170 to different versions of 5270, Patek Philippe chronographs have different scales. Both the tachymeter scale and the pulsometer scale are great, of course, the personal preference is the latter (as long as the dial is not particularly cumbersome). The 5370P-001 is equipped with a speedometer scale.
The existence of the tachymeter scale perfectly balances the sub-dial scale, giving life to the dial. The black dial, if the scale is too small, the contrast of the details is not sharp enough, which will make the overall effect of the watch darker. However, a shiny dial should be different from a satin or matte dial.
The Superluminova coating is usually sporty, but the classic leaf-shaped hands make this watch unique. Paired with a black dial, it adds a touch of romance to the watch. If you use a pin or a toffee needle, the effect will be completely different and more modern, but without the ‘authentic’ look and feel.
At the same time, the superluminova fluorescent layer is applied to give the watch a casual spirit. From this perspective, 5370P-001 seems to really come from the early 20th century instead of the 1960s and 70s.
The 5370P-001 and 5204 are equipped with a CHR29-535 PS manual winding movement, equipped with a stud wheel and a horizontal clutch, a frequency of 28,800 vibrations / hour (4 Hz), and can provide a power reserve of 55 to 65 hours. Compared with the simple timing movement equipped with the 5170, the 5370P-001 is equipped with many new patented innovations.
Similar to the 5204 application, the 5370P-001 is equipped with an isolator. When the lap time is stopped, the isolator can separate the two-second chase gear and the chronograph wheel, reducing unnecessary friction.
In addition, you can also notice a number of innovations in the application of the movement of the 5370P-001. They are not just improvements for marketing. These innovations are very interesting and some are simple. In my opinion, the evaluation of the technical performance of the movement depends not only on the number and complexity of the assembled parts, but also on the improvements made in a simple way.
In terms of aesthetics, compared to the previous 5004 equipped movement, the 5370P-001-equipped movement takes another step forward in design. Top-grade retouching, gorgeous appearance, impressive, just like the CH27-525 movement used in 5950.
Most of the stainless steel parts are chamfered, and the two-second chase pin clamp is polished. The finishing process is exemplary. By the way, compared with German silver (copper-zinc-nickel alloy), individuals prefer stainless steel because they do not appreciate the color of the former. Of course, I can’t say which of the stainless steel and the German silver is stronger. I wonder if anyone can confirm it?
One more thing, I really don’t think it makes sense to do so-called rankings for these movements. They each correspond to the brand’s technical expectations for different models. Compared with ordinary movements, they can be regarded as another level of masterpieces. In fact, 324 movements and 240 movements are still very good.
Summary: I believe that for many watch fans, 5370P-001 is a dream, and the editor can only congratulate them on their choice and wish them success. 5370P-001 is an excellent example of the ingenious combination of Patek Philippe machinery, aesthetics and finishing. It is absolutely gorgeous and unique. The experience of wearing 5370P-001 will be exceptional.
Many people once asked me whether I should buy A. Lange & Söhne or Patek Philippe. My answer is firm and I must buy both because these two There is no good or bad brand, only the style is different. PP represents Switzerland’s top watchmaking craftsmanship, while Lange has perfectly interpreted and interpreted the essence of German traditional watchmaking! So he asked me again, how is the German watch? I asked it back then, please tell me what is not good in Germany. He was speechless. We might as well think about it, as long as it is attached to machinery, from cars, trains, excavators, to cabinets. , Cameras, and suitcases, there is nothing in Germany that is not a leader in this field. The German philosophy is that if you do n’t do it, you must be the number one in the world!
This is particularly evident in Lange’s body. Although the Lange brand was founded in 1845, each of us knows that the history of the Lange watch is actually only 24 years. In current words, Lange is an authentic post-90s. However, it is the miracle of the post-90s generation that has already ranked among the world’s top watches in such a short time and has won the respect of collectors all over the world. This is a miracle!
The reason why Lange can achieve such remarkable achievements is, on the one hand, the Germans’ attitude of excellence in doing things, on the one hand, Lange has other top watch brands that cannot do it, and in Lange’s many unique watchmaking processes, Two of them are the ones that impress me the most and I admire them the most. One is that Lange is the only watch brand in the world with all the movements assembled for the second time; the other is that Lange is the only one in the world. A watch brand with a movement that ‘does not knock’.
Let me say the first item. The so-called secondary assembly is Lange’s watchmaking. When the movement is first assembled, it will test the movements of the movement and hundreds of parts for smooth operation, although these parts are assembled before assembly. It is already flawless, but after the first assembly and testing, no matter how careful, each part will inevitably encounter slight scratches or infiltration of fine dust during the adjustment process. At this time, the watchmaker will completely disassemble and clean all the assembled movements. After cleaning, many components will be decorated, carved and polished with traditional techniques. During the second assembly process, each movement is averaged. The more than 50 oil tanks need to use 8 different lubricants. Finally, the watchmaker will also replace the ordinary screws used in the first assembly with blue steel screws specially burned by Lange. Some people may say that it is difficult to install it again, then let us experience it.
This is like you seriously assembled a Gundam model, and some of these steps took a lot of effort to install, and just when you want to enjoy the joy of victory, suddenly someone tells you that this model is taken apart immediately , And then re-polished all the parts with polished sandpaper again, after polishing it is better to assemble than the first time, you tell me what was your mentality at that time? If you do n’t want to hit the wall, I’ll say it, and Lange does it. Lange knows that doing so will double or even more time in assembly. Knowing that it would not be possible to double the price, but Lange still did!
Let me talk about the second item. The so-called movement ‘do not slam the door’ means that Lange will not superimpose different functional modules on the same movement and then put different cases on the same movement like other brands. Paragraph, to put it plainly is to change the soup without changing the medicine. At this point, even Patek Philippe is a little bit ashamed, there are 7 models of a 240 movement, more than 200,000 watches and more than 1 million watches, you will find that the same movement. Of course, this is understandable. Who can not consider the cost in the business community? But there are exceptions to everything, Lange is such a strange, it actually did a watch and a movement.
Let me give you the simplest example. The difference between Lange 1 and Grand Lange 1 is that the case diameter is only 2.4 mm different. If you change to another brand, you must increase the case diameter directly (Patida Philippe’s 5119, 5139, 5140 And Rolex’s Day-Data II is the best proof), but Lange is stunned because this 2.4 mm has a separate movement for the Grand Lange 1, and not only the Lange 1 series, the same is true of other series. This is really an admirable move, because in this way, it is equivalent to each movement being personally customized, and its components are not only not shared, but also increase the variety of single components. The decrease in output is completely contrary to the production law of modern manufacturing with fewer types and large output. In addition, due to the large number of parts, its quality control is another project!
To be honest, my role as a watchmaker and potential consumer with high requirements for watches all feels that Lange is doing a little too much! Its sincerity and honesty make every consumer feel distressed. When I buy it, I feel sorry for Lange, even if I start to worry about its high cost, such small output, how can the profit guarantee this? It has nothing to do with it, so I suggest that Lange’s price should really be 10% to 15% higher than Patek Philippe to be reasonable.
Having said so much, this is just a microcosm of Lange’s touching. Let us tell from the specific models. Since the title is a shopping guide, it is natural to recommend some relatively approachable and easy to buy. Watch, so we do n’t talk about limited and super complicated today. I guarantee that these ordinary watches are enough to make your heart beat faster at night. Let’s start with Lange 1.
Lange 1 series
The Lange 1 series is one of the four timepieces first introduced by Lange after returning to the table in 1994. The biggest feature of this series is the eccentric design and large calendar display. You must know that it is the first mature technology in the world. The big calendar watch, when it appeared, immediately caused a stir in the watchmaking world. Lange 1 is the only series in all Lange series that adopts eccentric time display layout. The chronograph dial, small second dial, and large calendar are mutually necessary and indispensable. Its position is exactly a standard isosceles triangle. The overall looks comfortable and relaxed, because the series is extremely distinctive and highly recognizable, so many people think that only Lange 1 is Lange, so Lange 1 series has always been Lange’s most mainstream and most popular Watch series.
Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase
There are currently 9 watches in the Lange1 series. Aside from those super complicated watches, I think there are two watches worth recommending. The first watch I mentioned was called Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase. This watch is a new version of SIHH this year. The reason why it is recommended is because it is very good in line with the trend. We noticed that all watches in the Lange 1 series They are not matched with blue steel hands, but all use the same material as the case. Although this is very noble, it will also cause another problem: the color is monotonous, and it always feels a bit less, so Lange added it. After the moon phase, we found out that it was the appearance of this smear that instantly gave a vitality to the dial.
The previous Lange 1 moon phase watch had a diameter of 38.5 millimeters. The moon phase disc and the small second disc were placed together. This new model not only expands the case diameter to 40 millimeters, but also puts the moon phase at the most. On the eye-catching main dial, this oversized moon phase disk with a diameter of 14.3 millimeters is a perfect match with the large calendar. The L095.3 caliber on this watch is a moon phase version of the custom-made movement for the large Lange 1. Looking at all the Lange movements, only the Lange 1 movement has the most beautiful three-quarter plywood in the world. We take a closer look at the striped seams between the two cover plates and the main plywood. The fusion is so seamless that People can’t help crying after watching it!
Lange 1 Time Zone
The other watch I recommend is the Lange 1 Time Zone. This watch can be said to be the most practical watch in this series. Generally speaking, more than 90% of Lange watch owners should be a standard trapeze, so one This World Time watch naturally becomes the ideal partner for travel. Usually, people will be used to the main dial to display the destination time, and the dial to display the departure time, so many people landed the aircraft, the first one The thing is to adjust the watch. It is tedious to exchange the time of the two dials, but this watch is very user-friendly. Although the two dials are different in size, they do not interfere with each other, even if you stay at the destination for a long time. To intermodulate, as for the calendar, you can simply rely on the dual day and night display for simple calculations.
The material of this watch I recommend to choose the platinum model, which not only looks more low-key and elegant, but the key is that the platinum model is equipped with luminous hands, which is very important for a world time watch. This watch is equipped with the L031.1 movement. Although it is manually wound, its 72-hour power reserve and power reserve instructions will never worry about the watch’s stall. The most important thing is that the movement has a hand-carved middle wheel plywood, which should be considered as an additional benefit. .
In this episode, we mainly introduce some unique techniques of Lange 1 series and Lange. In the next episode, I will continue to introduce you to the remaining several series and more special features of Lange, so stay tuned … (text / picture wrist) Watch House Mao Zhuang)

Low-key married Shen Teng and Wang Qi
Shen Teng is one of the comedians I like very much. From ‘Happy Twist’ to the movie ‘Charlotte Trouble’, Shen Teng gives us a lot of joy. Unlike other stars in the entertainment industry, Shen Teng’s scandal is so rare that even many people don’t know who Wang Qi is until they hold a wedding.
In any case, for love, we always wish that a lover can become a dependent, and for this period a lot. In most people’s memory, the diamond ring is the most suitable witness of love. However, there was a moment that gave me a new understanding of the watch, and the watch is also the best witness of marriage. I remember earlier that I came across an old watch with a line engraved with ‘Marriage Anniversary xx Anniversary’ engraved on the back, and a customer bought this model because of this line. At that moment, I understood the time memory of the watch for human emotions.

If diamonds represent eternity, I prefer to cherish the moment. When entering the palace of marriage, we began a journey of life together. For everyone, this is the most important moment in life. This moment should be remembered, and the time that follows is also worth it. Be cherished. Men’s and women’s watches in the Chrysler series are portrayed as tacit couples. The men’s models are generous and handsome, and the women’s models are soft and delicate.

A Gesture To Turn The World Yao Chen And Director Chen Zheyi Elegantly Perform Piaget Possession Art Short Film
Rotation-to move the world with a light gesture. Piaget Possession series’ unique double-circle design allows women to turn the ring freely, release energy and joy through this hidden ritual, and grasp their own life. In order to perfectly demonstrate the Possession series’s attitude of turning the world and the deep meaning of releasing the inner energy, Piaget joined the cutting-edge director Chen Zheyi and the well-known actor Yao Chen to create a unique artistic short film, telling the story of contemporary women on film .
Unique and fearless aesthetics
Born in 1874, Piaget, the top Swiss watch and jewellery master, upholds outstanding craftsmanship and fearless aesthetics, and has been praised for his excellence in craftsmanship. Among them, the Possession series is particularly popular for its iconic movable rotating outer ring design. Today, the Possession series that has leisurely spanned a quarter of a century, through Piaget’s re-interpretation, continues to dazzle, and proves the brand motto of ‘Always do better than required’. In the new Possession series of rings, the two interlocking rings are independent and inseparable from each other. The rounded lines are full of aesthetic power, and the dazzling light captures the envious eyes. The master craftsman’s axe and mastery completely released the fun of the ring, and the carefully polished gold ring became a sensory bond, craving for the touch of the fingertips. Every touch, intentional or unintentional, is also a great time to touch your heart, a hidden ritual to suspend life. The Possession ring unreservedly shares the most subtle state of mind with elegant and independent contemporary women, continuously giving women confidence and courage, and opening up a wonderful new world of senses.
Count Piaget has been tirelessly supporting the development and creation of the film industry for many years, and continues to show his unique vision and extraordinary taste in this field. Count Piaget hopes to explain the inspiration of the Possession series to contemporary women in an artistic way. The well-known artist Yao Chen and the emerging director Chen Zheyi resonate with this, and happily joined the Possession short film creation team. Directors, actors, and a host of creators collaborated endlessly and cultivated a deep understanding during the short shooting process. The film’s vision and hearing blend perfectly, showing the rich life philosophy of the Possession series.
Calm and confident Yao Chen is full of female power
Hot and famous actor and fashion Icon Yao Chen is undoubtedly one of the best representatives of contemporary women. Since she set foot on the road to acting, she has presented many contemporary female images to the audience. Her tall figure and keen fashion sense make her an indispensable oriental face on the international fashion stage. And her iconic smile is innocent and full of warm vitality, which has infected countless people.
The fate of Yao Chen and Possession seems to be fixed. When she puts on the Possession ring and slowly rotates with her fingertips, she says with emotion: ‘You will find that turning the ring will have a very playful mystery, like an encouragement to yourself And a kind of cheer. ‘The energy it provides allows women to gracefully face the ups and downs of life. ‘I want to show the grace of a woman of this age-calm, confident, you want to be such a woman, and you know you can do it.’
Sensitive and delicate Chen Zheyi shows a deep perspective
Another soul of the Possession art short is Singaporean director Chen Zheyi. He is one of the most popular young directors in the world in recent years. Chen Zheyi is a director and screenwriter. He is particularly good at showing his perception of the details of life from a deep perspective. His lens language is often reduced to simplicity, but the exquisite and rich emotions flow out through the lens, which has impressed countless audiences and major international film festivals.
In 2006, Chen Zheyi’s first short film participated in the Cannes Film Festival; his first feature film, ‘Parents Are Not Home’, swept major international film festivals and won the golden camera of the 66th Cannes International Film Festival in one fell swoop. 40 international awards including the Best Debut Award at the 57th London International Film Festival. Chen Zheyi has strict requirements for actors and teams, as well as herself. All of this is to create the most direct work to the soul. ‘I think we want to bring out a woman’s soul in this film. Her past, her growth, her studies, her confidence, Look for that definition of self. ‘
In the face of a world where interpersonal networks are intertwined and the pace of life is accelerating, contemporary women are always moving around the world and between different roles. The Possession series understands that women are eager to have their own time in a busy metropolitan life, a quiet and impatient heart, and a conversation with their original self. Count Piaget hopes to explore women’s minds through a distinctive art form. Every woman has a path from astringent to mature and confused to firm. Yao Chen has also undergone this process of transformation since her debut. This time, she plays the core of the whole drama, showing the inner strength of many contemporary women with poetic language and full monologues. Director Chen Zheyi uses black and white tones to enable audiences to listen to the voice and power of the soul. The simple colors of the film imply a rich content. The lens is from far to near, as the viewer slowly enters the female spiritual world.
In just 3 minutes, Piaget completed the journey of exploring the female self. This has to be attributed to Yao Chen’s dedication to the performance and Chen Zheyi’s fine control of the lens language. The whole film was performed by Yao Chen alone, and one shot to the end restored the true emotions to the greatest extent. The film has no gorgeous cuts, so every detail must not be lost, and even the smallest flaws will ruin the entire work. It is not only a challenge to the director’s camera skills, but also a test of the actor’s acting skills. However, life itself is like this. The trajectory of each person’s life is the only one that cannot be duplicated. The only thing we can do is move forward with courage. The source of joy is the guardian of courage and perseverance. At every precious moment, the Possession series focuses on listening to the inner voice of women, and through touching and turning again and again, it releases the power of women to change the world and blooms eternal passion and light.
