Regaining Good Memories Those Classic Masterpieces On The Wrist

There is an old seagull in my desk, which is my best memory. Speaking of watches, I still can’t help but talk about my father. He is a watch-loving person. Although he bought a few pieces in his lifetime, it means different things to him.

   My father was a man who had the courage to think hard. He didn’t meet a few times a year when he was young. He always felt that he was in a hurry. Later, I heard my mother tell me that when I was very young, if anyone could have a radio, sewing machine and watch, it was already a good family. At that time, my father bought these for my family. My father later told me that the first watch he bought was an old-fashioned mechanical watch, not a well-known brand, but it needed to be wound every day, but it was still very enviable at the time. Later, when I was in preschool, my father went out once and brought me an electronic watch. At the time, I was one of the few children of my age who could bring a watch. My friends were very envious. I like it so much that I want to take it with me when I sleep. However, after taking it for a while, it is not very accurate. Now it seems that it is a child’s toy watch. Unfortunately, that watch has long been unknown where I was thrown away. When I was in elementary school, my father added a new watch to him. It was an old seagull that was more popular at that time. His old machine was gloriously retired. Due to the long time he wore it, the surface glass had been polished. It’s not accurate when leaving. When the time was up when I was going to junior high school, my father gave me a new watch in order to encourage me to say that if the test scores were good, I worked very hard to get into the middle school which was pretty good at home, and my father gave me Only Citizen, this watch has been with me for many years and has many memories. Later, with the mobile phone, it completely replaced the role of watches in life, and never bought a new watch. Six years ago, my father left us because of an accident. Later, my mother gave me my father’s old seagull. I regard it as a treasure. It is not only a watch, but also a family heritage.

   There are so many trivial fragments about love and memory, but it is not so easy to really pass on this spirit. Having said so much, I actually want to say that for the inheritance of love, it is not so precious. As long as the truest emotion is present, it is the best continuation of life. The same is true for brand stories. Those classic wrist crystals will become more precious in the passage of time. Today I will introduce you to several old brands with a century-old history.

   The first thing to say is the earl. This old brand was founded in a small village in Switzerland in 1874. It started with movement manufacturing and currently belongs to the Swiss Richemont Group. ‘Always do better than required’ is the motto of the Earl of Georgia. Since the 1960s, Piaget has devoted itself to the research of complex movements while developing the design of top jewelry. Today, Piaget has many series of watches, becoming a contemporary classic legend brand.
   The Altiplano series is synonymous with Piaget’s pursuit of excellence. This Altiplano series of ultra-thin hollow-out watches is Piaget’s leap forward to professional teaching. It not only shows Piaget’s unique ultra-thin movement manufacturing skills, but also the Piaget sculpting master. Innovation breaks through the limits of artistic expression. This watch is currently the thinnest self-winding skeleton watch, the thickness of the watch is 5.34 mm, and the thickness of its automatic winding movement is only 2.40 mm.

It may be due to the red and purple colors of its Portuguese and Darwin series, which made many people forget the once classic Portofino series. This watch introduced to you today is a classic version of Portofino, which not only highlights the thin visual sense, but also has the characteristics of elegance and restraint.

Zhen Li Shi And The Legendary Resurrection Of ‘mikel Carlson And Brillio 11’

In 1909, Louis Blériot successfully piloted the Blériot XI on the first flight of a human over an air-heavy aircraft over the English Channel. This early single-engine aircraft in aviation history was unveiled at the AIR14 air show in Payena, Switzerland on Saturday, September 6. When the pilot took off, the Zenith watch on his wrist witnessed this glorious moment.

Hundred years of military aviation history is a century of epic with passion and discovery. To pay tribute to the greatest pilots of the past century, on Saturday, September 6th at 13:17, the Payana AIR14 air show staged ‘Mikael Carlson and Blair ‘Australia 11’ flight show, Swedish pilot Mickel Carlson presented this great moment in front of 110,000 viewers. This plane witnessed the birth of aerobatics, and it was on this plane that at the beginning of the last century Blairio completed his feat.

In the summer of 1909, competitors flocked to challenge the rewards offered by Lord Northcliff for successfully flying over the English Channel via the first daily flight by the London Post. Blairio brought his latest model, Blairio 11, to Les Barraques near Calais, France. At 4:15 am on July 25, 1909 and following a challenge to Hubert Latham who failed the reward, Bleriot set off on his journey across the English Channel. Witnessed by a Zenith watch on his wrist, in 37 minutes, he flew across 35 kilometers (22 miles), and Blelio completed this historic initiative.

In 1912, he once said, ‘I am very satisfied with the Zenith watch that I often apply. I can hardly describe its extremely accurate timekeeping.’ As early as the early 20th century, Zenith became the earliest manufacturer of flight instruments. One of the brands, especially the altimeter and flight watch, laid the foundation for the connection between these two dreamers.

Zenith CEO AldoMagada said: ‘Louis Blario and Zenith have many common values. We are committed to challenging the limits and setting new records. Both sides have the qualities of happiness, courage and reliability.’ Picture / text watch home Xiao Sen)

The balance spring was restrained by unidirectional gravitational force for a long time, which affected the isochronism of the concentric circles that were contracted. The tourbillon is a balance wheel and escapement system that controls the accuracy of time. It is placed in a set of rotating frames propelled by transmission gears. During the rotation process, the gravitational force is dispersed throughout the hairspring to offset the system against the gravity. Function to improve the accuracy of travel time. However, because the tourbillon mechanism is quite exquisite and mini, it requires a large number of parts to be built into the limited space. At the same time, it must be repeatedly adjusted before and after assembly, making it extremely time-consuming and labor-intensive, thus becoming the king-level indicator of the watch.

Big News Swatch Group Withdraws From 2019 Basel International Watch & Jewellery Show

According to the Swiss newspaper NZZ am Sonntag, Switzerland’s largest watch and jewellery show, Baselworld, will bid farewell to its largest exhibitor, the Swatch Group, next year.

 Mr. Nick Hayek, CEO of Swatch Group, told NZZ am Sonntag that the watch business has gradually become ‘more transparent, faster and more spontaneous’, and the significance and role of Baselworld is weakening. In criticizing Baselworld, Mr. Nick Hayek pointed out that ‘we are not here to share the expensive construction costs of Herzog & de Meuron.’ The current Baselworld exhibition center was built by this famous Swiss architectural firm and was established in 2013. Opening of the year.

 The Swatch Group has 18 watchmaking brands, including heavyweights such as OMEGA, Longines and Tissot. Each year the Swatch Group participates in Baselworld with a budget of approximately 50 million Swiss francs (including transportation and accommodation), making it the exhibitor with the highest budget for participation. The departure of Swatch Group will be a heavy blow to Baselworld host MCH Group (which also owns the franchise of Art Basel), because Baselworld is the most profitable project of MCH Group.

 In 2018, the number of Baselworld exhibitors dropped sharply to 650, and many exhibitors complained about Baselworld’s high fees and poor facilities. Except for the Swatch Group, other major exhibitors such as Rolex, Chopard and LVMH have not indicated plans to leave the show.

Swiss Watch Exports In The First Half Of 2011-continue To Grow Rapidly

Following the apparent recovery in 2010, watch exports continued to grow in the first half of 2011. Exports in six months amounted to 8.7 billion francs, an increase of 19.3% compared with the first half of 2010.
As a result, it is 1.4 billion francs above last year’s level, and this strong increase is higher than the 2008 baseline result.
Watch exports have steadily gone through the first half of the year, with double-digit growth in all months. In fact, the levels of growth in April and May exceeded 30%. The reason for the softer numbers in March and June is due to very negative base effects.
The watch industry continued to achieve outstanding results, while other industries encountered difficulties. However, the strong impact of exports has serious effects.
The sales chains at all levels have realized their profit margins, and the prices of products sold to foreign markets have continued to rise. In this context, this is likely to continue to grow, and industry forecasts remain optimistic, with sustained growth throughout 2011.
