Apart From The Budget, What New Watches Can I Buy This Year? (One)
At the moment of posting, the rabbit has finished all the schedules of the Geneva watch exhibition, sneaking to the brand factory (as for which one you will know later), stealing the lessons, but this does not prevent me from serious Let’s plan this serious matter of how to spend New Year’s money. In the past, we always said ‘how to buy watches in XX budget’, but this year I want to break the shackles of money. After all, rabbit fans are similar to ‘100,000 budget watches go out, 500,000 watches can be bought home.’ It’s better to demand yourself. Audemars Piguet: The newly upgraded Royal Oak Bunny wrote in a previous prediction that it would be a big hit. Audemars Piguet will have a new Royal Oak 15500 this month, using a new cal.4302, replacing the entry-level big Explosion 15400. At first glance, it doesn’t seem to be much different from the 15400, but a comparison reveals the details. 15400 (left) and 15500 (right) 15500 diameter 41 mm. The date display window is further away from the center of the dial, and the width of the hour markers is increased. The minute scale is no longer printed on the ‘Grande Tapisserie’ large grid, but instead Satin-finished dial on the bezel. In addition to the blue version, there are dark gray and black dials. There is also a very obvious change. The word ‘Automatic’ on the 15500 dial has disappeared. It seems that the entire dial is more concise and easier to read. (Some people say that this may make people think it is quartz. Watch, the rabbit wants to say what watch he bought is unclear, why should others think it?). These two pieces are dark gray and black. I still maintain the previous judgment-15500 will replace 15400 and become a big hit. After all, in the market today, as the entry model of Royal Oak, 15400 is hard to find. Even if there is a difference between the two who are better after the update, there will still be fire if there is no choice. At the same time, Rabbit tried a special Royal Oak “Jumbo” ultra-thin watch at the scene. The 39 mm diameter dial looks quieter (photos are not taken, I reflect). This watch is to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Royal Oak series in 1992. For the first time, Audemars Piguet decorated the dial with a rose gold-toned ‘Petite Tapisserie’ small satin-finished 18K white gold case and strap. In addition, among Royal Oak’s many new models, the rabbit has favored the 26313 purple cream gold model. This limited automatic chronograph with a size of 200 is 41 mm, which is slightly larger for me, but the value is too high. I ca n’t take care of it anymore (when I saw the real thing on the table lying quietly and unattended, I jumped forward and picked it up and put it on my hand). Except for the price, everything is very friendly, about 460,000 yuan (of course, it may just be unfriendly to me …). Montblanc: Minerva can not be absent. In fact, at the SIHH in 2018, I was amazed at the green-faced 1858 series single-button chronograph at that time-high value and Minerva movement. Montblanc’s strengths. This year, the first 1858 series came with several hard goods, two self-winding watches, an automatic chronograph and a Geosphere world time watch. All are khaki green dials, which is obviously another breaking point. The self-winding 40mm, all-bronze case, the previous models were a steel case and a bronze bezel, while the chronograph model was a 42mm rabbit who used the Geosphere world watch on the spot to show everyone the actual effect. The prices of these three pieces are around 20,000 to 30,000 yuan. The important point is that this year’s new heritage series has a doctor’s watch (pulse chronograph, which can be used to detect heart rate), a more special disk color, using a Minerva movement. Speaking of Minerva Watch Factory, I believe watch friends are like thunder. It was a watchmaking workshop founded by Charles-Yvan Robert in the small village of Saint-Miles Valley in 1858. Later, because of its reputation in the production of chronographs, Minerva Watch Factory gained global watchmaking. Industry recognition. In 2007, Richemont was used by Montblanc after the acquisition of the Minerva watch factory by Lifeng. As I mentioned last year, Minerva is very important to Montblanc. This is a reflection of the brand’s professional watchmaking status. In the past, Montblanc did not seem to focus too much on Minerva watches (of course, this The series price is relatively high), the Chinese market has not done much publicity, but from this year, Montblanc clearly realized that this is not only a complex, but also a manifestation of strength. The single-button chronograph movement MB M13.21, with a diameter of 40 mm, is very suitable for wearing. As for whether the salmon color looks good, it is completely determined by personal preference (after all, it belongs to the two series, this piece is still different from last year’s green-faced melamine style). Cartier: Tonneau dual time zone watch pays tribute to the CPCP series Cartier still has an important new model in the Santos series this year, Santos need not say more, I like to buy. Today I want to push willfully a special-looking watch-the Tonneau watch of the Prive series, with a barrel-shaped design. This series sounds strange, but it was born very early. In that year, it was a watch with a unique style. One of Cartier’s characteristics is that there are a lot of product lines. There are many models that seem to be silent for several years. On a certain day, they suddenly return to the field of vision in a surprising state. For example, the Crash watch of that year has always made me miss. My personal favorite is the dual time zone watch, which is divided into rose gold and platinum editions, each limited and numbered for sale. The rabbit got the platinum version on the spot, because it is hollow and leather strap, in fact, the watch is very light. It is also worth mentioning that this dual time zone is also a tribute to the long-discontinued CPCN Paris Collection Tonneau XL dual time zone watch (to help you gossip, Liu Tao wore this private collection in ‘Ode to Joy 2’ table). The difference is that this year’s Tonneau uses a movement to drive two disks. It is interesting that the very distinctive CPCP series had no signs of fire at that time, but after the shutdown, many watch friends looked around and sighed, showing the importance of ‘timing’ to the market. Fortunately, Cartier will give us a chance to reflect on it again. As for the price, the platinum version I wear is 590,000 yuan and the rose gold version is 515,000 yuan. RM: To maintain a girl’s heart, you must also have (economic) strength. I have never praised Richard Mille like this year. Although I have always admired the marketing capabilities of RM, I have always looked at its products and labeled it ‘Billionaire’s Tickets’. Although there are many RM watch owners in the rabbit powder group However, they basically do not have too high ‘in-group status’. They only blame the group owner for being too poor and buried huge wealth … Yesterday, the pavilion encountered an old friend and heard a very funny evaluation of RM: Obviously it can rely on technology , I just played the face value, people feel extremely strange. But from the moment I saw the lollipops in the museum, I felt that RM played this step this year. In the words of RICHARD MILLE’s MM, after all, participating in SIHH in the last year can make everyone more fun. BONBON series launched ten watches this time, based on RM07-03, RM16-01 and RM37-01 three automatic winding watches, each of which is limited to 30 pieces. This collection is completely inspired by fruits and desserts. It uses colorful ceramics, Carbon TPT carbon fiber or Quartz TPT quartz fiber material overlays, and colored gems to create a rich color and look. Among the four models of the Sweets series are two-tone ceramic cases. The rabbit got a piece of marshmallow for everyone to feel. The Fruits series of watches is available in six flavors, paying tribute to dessert fun: Citron and Fraise (RM 16-01), Myrtille and Litchi (RM 07-03), Kiwi and Cerise (RM 37-01). Made of colored Quartz TPT and Carbon TPT materials. Similarly, the rabbit grabbed a few pieces to try on, and first showed you the actual effect, which can be said to be very delicate. This is Kiwi. This is Cerise’s last concern. The price of this series is between 1 million and 1.2 million this year. I personally think it will capture the hearts of a bunch of girls (but who will pay for this problem? Worth thinking about). Forget it, according to the rabbit’s inquiries, it’s all sold out, so save it. The report on the Geneva watch exhibition is far from over. The effect of the first article today is to refresh everyone. After all, the year-end awards are almost out of the bag, and there should be new plans for the new year. It is not a bad thing to have long-term goals. Rabbit will push everyone more affordable watches next week, which can be entered into the purchase list of most people. Many people are deteriorating the market, including not optimistic about the economic situation, but in my opinion, the love of beautiful things will not change due to environmental changes. As I said before, buying a watch is a long-term plan. It can be rooted in your heart. It may take four or five years to finally achieve your goal, but this is also fun. Don’t let yourself lose your ability to hobby, keep your sensitivity and enthusiasm, this is the ultimate trick to resist any environment. Because our best investment is always ourselves.
