Taste Insurance Seeking Alternative Dressing Tables

Generally, in the eyes of people, the design of high-end watches used to match the dress is a bit ‘boring’, and the appearance is often not as attractive as sports watches. However, any match has an ingenious side. I remember interviewing Richard James, a famous British men’s clothing designer, to talk about how to dress classic men’s clothing with personality. Mr. James gave me a golden rule without hesitation— ‘In a detail, break the tradition, take risks and let People feel that they are ‘wrong’. ‘ A ‘wrong’ word instantly opened up the second pulse of Ren Du’s taste and personality, and brought the whole image to life. When you wear a perfectly tailored dress, you reach out and see a high-end watch that breaks the tradition and is designed to be ‘alternative’, which embodies the hard truth of ‘seeking for taste’. Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Skeleton Minute Repeater
This watch was inspired by the 1992 model-that year, Audemars Piguet reproduced its brilliant timekeeping technology. In order to highlight the characteristics of the new watch, Audemars Piguet gave it an alternative face-commonly known as ‘one-eyed dragon jumping.’ As a result, the hours, minutes, and seconds hands form a perfect three-needle, one-line specification. The structure of the new watch is completely redesigned according to the size of the case. In the case with a diameter of 43 mm, it also contains a considerable movement and a sophisticated minute repeater. The new movement also does not need to be in a neutral position when it reports ‘engraved’. Generally, the minute repeater watch does not allow manual time adjustment when the timekeeping device is operating to avoid damage to the movement. Audemars Piguet’s time-adjustment brakes have been developed so that when the watch completes the tapping action, the time adjustment mechanism is disengaged, thereby avoiding the danger of damaging the movement.

Cartier CALIBRE DE CARTIER Automatic
The 1904MC movement is Cartier’s first self-made self-winding mechanical movement, which not only represents the latest achievements of Cartier’s La-Chauxde-Fonds watch workshop, but also designed the world’s first brand in 1904. Memorial of a wristwatch (Cartier Santos). The thick and solid case, the three-dimensional raised bezel, the powerful large-diameter dial, and the oversized Roman time mark XII on the dial allow you to have an invisible domineering when wearing formal clothes; at the same time, the soft and smooth bezel With a natural tilt of 28 degrees, the dial is decorated with curved grain patterns through 120 fine scales, adding exquisite details to the atmospheric shape, which is surprising.

A. Lange & Shne Zeitwerk Hour Watch
Langer has always been a symbol of tradition. This is not only craftsmanship, but also design. Therefore, in 2009, when Lange Watch Factory launched a Zeitwerk watch unprecedented in history, everyone couldn’t help wondering how Lange convincingly combined the principles of mechanical watches with modern forms of time display. . The birth of Zeitwerk not only broke the design tradition of Lange, but also made the wearer feel the beat of time every moment. German silver plywood supports the disk surface like wings, and it has hour and minute windows at both ends. To make way for the movement, the crown was moved to the 2 o’clock position. Many people will ask, what is the secret mechanism for Lange to launch the timepiece so late? Compared to how to solve the problem of the clockwork torque of the hands and how to avoid wear and tear, Lange’s pursuit is higher-he is committed to solving the problem of abnormal air flow inside the movement caused by the wheel. To this end, Lange uses a wind blade design inside the movement, and the air generated when the hour and minute wheels accelerate or stop will be discharged by this wind blade. This is also the technology patent of this watch.

Daniel Roth Watch
Wrote here that there can be some sadness and joy-in the future, no independent DANIEL ROTH will be seen in the world. In order to help the production of Daniel Roth, which is very small, BVLGARI Group has incorporated it into this brand series. Future watches will appear with the ‘DANIELROTH’ ‘BVLGARI’ logo at the same time. Here, I recommend an early masterpiece by Daniel Roth. Its faceplate is blocked by the display panel when jumping, and most of the delicate mechanical structures are hidden underneath. The center of the dial is the small second hand, and the bottom semi-circular arc area is used to indicate the minute. After the pointer has walked for 60 minutes, the blue double arrow will retract itself and disappear at the end of the scale. At the same time, a pointer will continue to indicate the next 60 minutes at 0 o’clock.

Harry Winston Opus3 Watch
This is a collaboration between Harry Winston, a famous American jewelry brand, and Vianney Halter, an independent watchmaker who specializes in window watches. Opus3 has no hands on the dial, only 6 windows: the left and right two windows show the hour (24-hour clock), the left and right two windows show the minute, and the middle two show the date. When an hour is about to end, the window displaying the ten digits of the date will change to a countdown: 57, 58, 59 … This is the busiest time for the entire movement. If it is before 12 midnight, you will See the wonders of all windows beating at the same time. Opus’s peculiar crown is also a design highlight. Because its movement is a wheel display, it needs to work separately to adjust the time or the winding. The crown has 4 gears that need to be moved up and down. They are adjusting the calendar, hours, minutes, and winding.
