In the watch industry, when it comes to ‘popular’, it is inevitable to put quotation marks. For example, in recent years, tourbillons have become popular. Watchmakers do tourbillons without knowing what to do; watch editors write tourbillons when they ca n’t think of a topic; customers buy other tourbillons when they do n’t think about it— In terms of production, tourbillon watches actually only occupy a small share of the entire watch market. Although it is popular, the product itself is never popular.
TAG Heuer Carrera Heritage Gold Watch
Everything that can be popular is either a new thing that quickly disappears after infinite scenery, or a classic that never goes out of style. Although I am not an expert in the history of watches and clocks, I can also judge that gold watches are not in the former category. According to my personal experience on the auction floor, the earliest inter-gold watches can be traced back to the 1940s. It was the era when men’s watches were gradually shaped and the contemporary features of watches began to show. At that time, there were a large number of manufacturers of gold watches. Among them, the most influential and the most appreciable output were Rolex’s Ref.2940 small three-hand watch and Ref.3372 large three-hand watch. They used Rolex’s iconic ‘Oyster’-oyster case and ‘Bubble Back-‘ the case back, plus the gold design that was later called ‘Rolesor’ by the factory, it can be said that It’s hard not to be a classic. It is very likely that it is precisely because of Rolex’s efforts that the gold watch is enduring.
According to the thinking habits of modern people, it is easy for us to preconceive the gold watch as a product of the combination of steel and gold watches, thinking that it will appear very late. However, in fact, the gold watch and the steel watch appear on the front and rear feet. They are all juniors of the gold watch. Even if they are related, they are only cousins, not father and son. Stainless steel entered the stage of history at the beginning of the last century. It was not patented and mass-produced until 1916, and it will take several years to make watches. Some people say that stainless steel is the greatest invention of the 20th century. It makes Europeans not have to eat rice even if they ca n’t afford silver tableware. Its significance is far better than today’s touch screen phones, Android systems, and somatosensory games.
