Concas series is the most representative series of Longines sports watches. Concas watches symbolize an immortal spirit of ‘conquest’. Vision and the spirit and character of being a pioneer, this is exactly the spirit that Longines designs Concas watches. The design of each watch combines the perfect combination of performance and elegance, and contains top technology features. The new 24-hour watch from the Comcast series adds dual time zone functionality, a must-have for pilots when crossing different time zones. Because the sun as a time reference is not always visible, pilots need tools that can display the exact time in real time. An aviation watch with a 24-hour dial fully meets this need. The new Comcast 24-hour watch exudes an eye-catching elegance that attracts adventurous brave men to explore. The water resistance of this model reaches 300 meters. Whether in the air or in the water, the Comcast 24-hour watch is the most trusted partner.
In the last episode, we mainly introduced the selection guide for Panerai’s Radiomi series watches, but I believe that 90% of the fans are still more interested in Luminor with crown protection. In the series, everyone agrees that only those who have a bridge are called Panerai. This feature has become Panerai’s DNA, so many people have not seen the watch, and they are already excited to see this bridge. Since the Luminor family is relatively large, in this episode, we will first introduce some accessible models in the Luminor 1950 series for you to choose from.
As we all know, the two major families of Panerai are Radiomir and Luminor, but we only think that the difference between the two is only the difference between the crown and the bridge, which is very wrong. In fact, the evolution from Radiomir to Luminor has also gone through a very long time. a process. In fact, in 1950, Luminor completely completed the evolution from Radiomir. At that time, the Luminor model was unique because of its crown bridge. The linear lugs became straight ears and were integrally cast with the case, which improved the overall strength of the watch, and the appearance continued the Radiomir 1940 model. The cushion-shaped case and the flat, wide bezel, especially the back, the transition between the straight lugs and the pillow-shaped case makes the overall texture of the case very layered, which is why so many people are obsessed with 1950 This is the origin of the modern Luminor 1950 series.
Similarly, Panerai still divides the Luminor 1950 series into historical and modern versions. I will first talk about the historical version. The historical version has 44 mm and 47 mm diameters. To be honest, I do n’t recommend this series. The 47 mm size, because this series uses straight lugs, so if a friend with a thinner wrist wears it, the lugs will burst out of your wrist and look very abrupt (this is why I like Radiomir). Although the 44 mm size can fit a wider range of people, the 44 mm models of this series are all more complicated chronograph models, so from the approachable point of view, we still look for 47 mm models.
This series of 47 mm watches has a total of 4 models are 372, 422, 423 and this year’s left-handed 557, all movements are Panerai’s own P3000 movement. I recommend 422 of these 4 models. The reason is very simple. In addition to the 1950 points for the Luminor family, there are also Base and Marina points. The difference between the two is that Marina’s 9 o’clock is the small second hand and Base is the number 9. I have always been inclined to Marina, because I think it is quite comfortable to see the beloved watch through the small second hand, and the 372 is only two large hands, but if some friends have a 372 resin sheet (resin watch (Mirror) I have a cold, so it’s okay to choose it. The important thing is that I like it, but what I want to remind is that the resin sheet is really not scratch resistant.
The latest 557 is exactly the right-hand version of 372, which is also a resin table mirror. Although the left-handed watch has a personality, it is a niche. As for 422 and 423, we know from the naming that they are twin brothers. One can be displayed on the dial and the other is on the movement. Regarding where the can be displayed, I believe most people should like to be on the movement. In this way, it will not disturb the traditional style of Panerai dials, but it will also be low-key and restrained. You can also surprise you when you take off the watch. This red gold needle can not only make the huge box splint full instantly, but also It can also raise the level of sullenness of this watch to another level.
Let’s take a look at the modern version. The biggest feature of the modern version is that the number 9 and the small second hand will be together, but I personally think it will be more elegant alone. All the watches in this version except the tape size are 47 mm, the rest are all 44mm, so if you ca n’t find a suitable watch in the historical version, you must come here to check it out. We still follow the principle of approachability. I recommend 3 watches in this version, which are 312, 351, and 392, which may be In order to echo the purpose of Hyundai, all versions of this version are automatic movements, of which the three models are all equipped with Panerai’s latest P9000 three-day power reserve movement.
Since the movements are the same, let’s start with the appearance. Let’s look at the 312 and 351. The two watches are all 44 mm in size. The dial layout is also the most traditional classic combination of Panerai. The only difference is 312 is made of stainless steel and 351 is made of titanium alloy. Which kind of material is really a tangled thing to buy. The stainless steel material is very bright and very polished, but the quality is heavy and the material is very common. Titanium alloy is a new type of watchmaking material. It is light-weight and scratch-resistant and reflects Panerai’s latest technical strength. However, because the characteristics of titanium are not suitable for polishing, 351 looks very low-key and not very noticeable.
Finally, after my careful consideration, I finally found a solution. If you buy 351, you can buy a 388 with it, because 388 is the Radiomir version of 312, so you have steel and titanium, and Luminor. There is Radiomir, if you are worried that these two 388 and 312 movements are the same, there is another solution, is to buy a 312, and then buy a 346, 346 belongs to the Radiomir family, not only titanium alloy material, but also It’s still the 8th chain, and the movement is the famous P2002. Although the price will be a lot more expensive, it will get more.
After tangling 312 and 351, let’s take a look at 392 again. To be honest, the dial layout of 392 is my favorite. The small seconds dial and calendar without the interruption of the number 9 are simple and refreshing, but also very practical. However, the only disadvantage of this watch is that it is a bit small, only 42 mm. You should know that 42 mm was an authentic large watch a few years ago, and now the size of 42 mm has become the size of a female watch in Panerai. Every man who loves Panerai has noticed that Panerai is not only for you, but also for the majority of women. When you choose a watch for your wife and girlfriend, you must pay attention to this 392.
In this episode, we mainly introduce the most fascinating Luminor 1950 series. In the next episode, we will introduce the last and most earthly Luminor series of Panerai, so stay tuned … (text / picture watch home Mao Zhuang)
The BC3 series watch launched ten years ago is a very popular product in the AVIATION category of ORIS. Today, this legendary series has added three new watches, namely Advanced, Sportsman and Limited edition of Air Racing.
BC3 Sportsman watch
The design of the BC3 Sportsman watch is based on the valuable opinions of Oris’s partner, aerobatic pilot Don Vito Wypr & autig Sportsman represents the first level of aerobatic pilots, as well as the courage of the newborn calves to fear the tiger. Don Vito, the test pilot of World Championship Hannes Arch, is a rising star who is passionate about aerobatics.

Screw-down crown, waterproof function 10 times the atmospheric pressure (100 meters), and you can choose elegant straps, tempered stainless steel straps, or dynamic rubber straps.
BC3 Advanced Watch
The BC3 Advanced watch is also inspired by the ideas of Oris flight partner Don Vito Wypr & auml; chtiger. And Advanced represents the advanced level in the super pilot. At the same time, this watch will perform a variety of amazing shows together with Vito. The case of the watch is plated with black DLC, with a dial made of black luminous material, and supplemented by a black rubber strap, conveying a visual impact of ALL BLACK. Of course, the watch can also choose a fine leather strap. In addition, the watch uses a special screw-fastened crown coupled with a shock-proof device to prevent the crown from being accidentally turned.
BC3 Air Racing watch
The design of Oris BC3 Air Racing is inspired by the Scarlet Screamer aircraft of its flight team. The case is made of titanium and weighs only 60% of steel. The second time zone is displayed with a 24-hour pointer function, which is practical and practical for the pilot. The red body pointer in the second time zone, combining the color and design of the Scarlet Screamer aircraft, has become the eye-catching focus of the watch. The watch has a screw-in crown and is water-resistant to 10 times the atmospheric pressure. The watch set is packaged in a special BC3 Air Racing watch box, which includes a replaceable rubber strap, a strap replacement tool, and a certificate of limited edition.

The global limit is only 701. ‘In my opinion, the matte surface treatment can make the watch’s styling more powerful.’ Gecchich said, ‘the design of the watch dial is bold and time is clear and easy to read. I draw inspiration from pilot watches , I really like the simple, clear look of these watches. ‘
As its name suggests, Ceramica’s overall ceramic watch series is made of high-tech ceramic materials, which are favored by many high-end watchmakers for their outstanding characteristics. Technological advancements, supplemented by Constantin Gucech’s design vision, have led to the glorious new life of this marvelous high-tech ceramic watch series, which is vividly reflected in Ceramica’s new 20 ceramic watch series. The new models of the Ceramica monolithic ceramic series are equipped with automatic mechanical movements for the first time, and are made of gray high-tech ceramics.
Abraham Louis Breguet founded a watchmaking workshop in Paris in 1775 and has since opened a 239-year-old legend. In the lifetime of the legend of the master, he has made countless contributions to the development of the world’s mechanical watch industry, such as the tourbillon escapement and automatic winding system. Come together today to witness the masterpiece of Breguet with this 3810ST / 92 / 9ZU watch.
The Breguet 3810ST / 92 / 9ZU is a men’s automatic mechanical watch. Its case diameter is 42 mm. The material of the case is stainless steel. The steel material exudes a slightly faint metallic atmosphere, highlighting the watch. The masculinity of the wearer. The color of the dial is dark brown. Although it is not as deep as the black dial, it also adds a mysterious element to the watch and adds a lot of mystery to the wearer of the watch. The day and night display dial, 12-hour cumulative chronograph dial and small seconds dial are located at the 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 9 o’clock directions of the dial, which makes reasonable use of the dial space. The date display window is directly placed at the 6 o’clock scale. The 12 scales on the dial are very conspicuous on the dark brown dial, which increases the legibility of the watch. The silver dial also has a set of black Arabic numerals on the outer ring, which makes this sports watch more sporty and makes the watch less monotonous. From the appearance, it is a sports watch suitable for mature men. .
The 3810ST / 92 / 9ZU is a watch of the Breguet brand with a very innovative spirit and many new technology development achievements. It is not only comprehensive but also powerful. Its time display is completed by the central hour, minute and small seconds hands, and its hands and digital scales are covered with a luminous coating, so that we can clearly see the time on the dark night. The day and night dial at the three o’clock position. It uses the horizontal line from 6 to 18 o’clock as the dividing line. The lower part is decorated with a linear pattern to distinguish between day and night. It can make donkey friends or professionals. When you are in a place where you don’t see the sun, get the day and night information in time. At six o’clock is a large calendar display window, with black text on white background, clearly showing the date of the day. And this sports watch is also equipped with a rotatable graduated bezel, which allows us to more conveniently calculate the elapsed time or remind the remaining time in some simple sports or daily life by rotating the dial. , Although it is a very simple design, it provides a very useful feature. The design of its chronograph function is slightly different from other chronograph watches. General chronographs use the central seconds and minutes and hours to complete the time. This watch is composed of the central seconds and minutes. Add a 12-hour counter to complete the timing function. This design allows us to easily read the quantiles, and its timing function also uses the flyback technology. When you press the zero reset button at the 4 o’clock position of an ordinary chronograph, all its timings will be cleared. Zero, and a chronograph with flyback. After pressing the zero reset button, the next round of timing will begin immediately after resetting to zero. Only when you first press the stop button at 2 o’clock and then press the reset button, its timing will stop completely. This design facilitates continuous timekeeping and reflects the unique creativity of Breguet watchmakers.
The movement of the Breguet 3810ST / 92 / 9ZU is the Cal.584Q movement produced by Breguet’s factory, which is an automatic mechanical movement. This movement supports the flyback function, thus making the watch’s chronograph function more powerful. It has a vibration frequency of 28,800 times per hour, which is equivalent to the movement of the movement 8 times per second. In this way, even if there is an external shock and other events that affect the time of the watch, only eight minutes are affected. In a second, this greatly improves the accuracy of the watch. This movement can also provide a 48-hour power reserve, which can meet the needs of the daily life of most people.
The Breguet 3810ST / 92 / 9ZU watch belongs to Breguet’s Type XXI series. This series is an improved series of the Type XX series specially developed for the French navy air combat forces in the 1950s. Therefore, it continues the stainless steel material and military watch style. As a men’s watch, the 3810ST / 92 / 9ZU not only highlights the masculinity of men, but also has some military style. In terms of functions, it has a clearer and easier-to-read chronograph function and a day and night display function than ordinary chronograph watches. This is a major feature of this watch, and it is also the embodiment of the ingenuity of Breguet watchmakers. The performance is supported by Breguet’s own superior movement, which can be reassuring. Its market reference price is 80,400 yuan. For a steel watch, its value is more reflected in its technical process, so this is a super high cost-effective watch.

On the clear and easy-to-read elegant dial, the hours, minutes, seconds, calendar and moon phases are displayed, which makes Jaeger-Le Coultre Duom & egrave; tre & agrave; Quanti & egrave; me Lunaire bi-monthly The phase calendar watch is like a classic watch. However, the 381 movement under the watch case is looming. This excellent movement is based on the ‘Dual-Wing’ bi-wing design, with unprecedented accuracy, making the watch the leader in the world’s fine watchmaking industry.
‘Dual-Wing’ dual-wing movement is a truly extraordinary feature of watch design. Its biggest feature is that it has two independent power sources: the power adjusted by the escapement and balance wheel is used for precise timing, The second power source is dedicated to the function display: hours, minutes, seconds, calendar and bi-hemisphere moon phases. The jumping seconds hand ensures that both power mechanisms work in sync. The Duom & egrave; tre & agrave; Quanti & egrave; me Lunaire bi-phase moon phase calendar watch shows the crystallization of the intensive research and development of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Research Workshop, which makes people shine: the instant jump second hand jumps forward in one-sixth seconds, making the watch accurate The degree reaches its peak, while the calendar and moon phases are displayed on a separate small dial.
Through in-depth research and re-examination of the basic principles of watchmaking theory, Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmaking experts successfully created a calendar watch with ‘Dual-Wing’ bi-wing movement. The principle’s outstanding properties ensure precise timekeeping, which was previously only available to watches without any complications.
So what is the answer to this question? Are slim watches still popular? At SIHH last year, the ultra-thin case and movement showed the watchmaking industry’s re-emergence of more stable, creative styles. Simple, classic timepieces that display only hours and minutes are gaining prominence in professional watchmaking media. There is no doubt that thin watches were very “popular” in 2011, and they were still popular in 2012. Most watch brands launched at this year’s SIHH at least one watch that we can call ‘thin’. Some brands have also made a bold step forward and entered the ‘ultra-thin’ ranks. All of this can’t be separated from the extra complicated functions or hands, so the movement becomes thinner, which ultimately reduces the thickness of the case itself.
Let’s start with the thinnest watch launched at this year’s SIHH. It has nothing more than a window indicating the hours and minutes. The classic Cartier Tank XL Slim Line uses Caliber 430MC movement. In fact, this movement is also used on the Piaget 430P’s Altiplano and Dancer line, I am sure you will be surprised. It is worth noting that the thickness of this movement is only 2.1 mm, so the height of the Cartier Tank XL case is only 5.1 mm. In second place is Van Cleef & Arpels Pierre Arpels, which reinterprets the Parisian House, which first appeared in the 1940s. With the Piaget Caliber 830P at a height of only 2.5 mm, the new Pierre Arpels is now an extremely elegant and powerful competitor.

Vacheron Constantin introduced the new Malte 100th Anniversary Platinum using the Caliber 4400 caliber with a height of only 2.8 mm. This barrel-shaped timepiece is designed to commemorate the brand’s first uniquely shaped watch a century ago.

Just a tenth of a millimeter thicker than Vacheron Constantin, the manually wound Caliber L093.1 movement from German manufacturer A. Lange & Söhne makes the new Saxonia Thin attractive. Made from Glashütte’s unique art of watchmaking, this watch guarantees a power reserve of no less than 72 hours after the top is wound. The latest version of the ultra-thin watch that only shows hours and minutes in this category is Audemars Piguet’s ‘Royal Oak Ultra-Thin’ series, which launched at its historic moment at its 40th anniversary. Although it has an extra date window at 3 o’clock and a self-winding oscillating weight, the Caliber 2121 movement developed by AP is only 3.05 mm high.

As a part that runs the miniature metal discs and splints of traditional mechanical watches, the movement has become a very challenging task for watchmakers. Such operations on ultra-thin movements are just a few things that high-end watch brands can do. As a recognized expert in the field of ultra-thin movements, Piaget surpassed the Caliber 1208P movement (2.35 mm high) and added a height of only 0.05 mm, which led to the birth of the new 1200S movement. This is an extraordinary technological achievement, which is directly comparable to the overall image of the fashionable charm of Altiplano watches.

SIHH’s second new product that combines an ultra-thin mechanical movement and hollow-out technology is Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Grand Reverso ultra-thin SQ. The watch uses a record-breaking Caliber 849RSQ movement with a thickness of only 1.85 mm and 128 parts. Just imagining that the movement is hollowed out is a feat that is incredible. Jaeger-LeCoultre dubbed it the ‘double-sided steel maze’.

Enter another category of ultra-thin watches on display at the 2012 SIHH: the Parmigiani Tonda 150 Special Edition, which features small seconds, clear lines, exquisite contours and perfect proportions. Powering the watch is the Caliber PF701 calibre, which is only 2.6 mm tall and equipped with a mini rotor. Vacheron Constantin’s hand-wound Malte Small Seconds is the only other ultra-thin watch to be displayed in Geneva this year, which is actually amazing. Its Caliber4400AS movement is only 2.8 mm tall and only two tenths of a millimeter thicker than a Parmigiani movement.
Before entering the high-complexity category of thin watches, naturally we cannot ignore Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Master Ultra-Thin Reserve de Marche. Although it has a central rotor, it also displays hours, minutes, small seconds, dates, and even its power reserve. The Caliber938 movement incorporates these functions, with a total of 273 parts and a thickness of no more than 4.9 mm!
The most complicated category of ultra-thin watches is the model with tourbillon, and this year only two brands dare to compete in this field. Audemars Piguet showed off its elegant 40th anniversary edition of the ‘openwork royal oak ultra-thin tourbillon’ and another non-openworked version. Both versions use a hand-wound Caliber 2924 movement with a thickness of only 4.46 mm.
The other is the ultra-thin tourbillon of Caliber 899 with a thickness of 6.4 mm, which is only 1.94 mm thicker than Audemars Piguet. The excess height is used to fit the center rotor in its movement. However, in this category, the crown still belongs to the excellent ‘Emperor Coussin automatic ultra-thin’ watch that Piaget showed at SIHH last year. Its Caliber1270P movement is still the world’s thinnest tourbillon after it is equipped with a pearl tourbillon. Only 5.55 mm thick.

The popularity of low-priced, high-specification diving watches has risen all the way in the past two years. Ceramic rings and water-resistant depths of more than 300 meters have previously been the symbol of high specifications. They can now be bought for about 10,000 yuan. This situation It will also cause some cousins to be plagued by the price comparison. The original budget could be tens of thousands, and after seeing many new products from low-end and mid-end brands, they became confused for a while. It seems that the same situation will continue to intensify this year, and the battlefield may extend outward from the diving watch. Various high-end materials and technologies in the past may now start at affordable prices that were unimaginable before. Years will be rewarded as a result. This is the development of industrial technology. It was the most expensive when it first came out, but with the increase in production, the popularization of related knowledge, and the initial R & D and equipment costs gradually recovered, the price of this technology will become cheaper and cheaper until it becomes Standard specifications that everyone can afford. This is the case, but for the cousin who started at the most expensive time, it is embarrassing. People around you comfort you ‘buy early and enjoy early, before it is cheap enough for everyone to use it, you have already taken the lead It took me a few more years ‘, but the high-end watches that I bought for a lot of money at the beginning, and now I have a bad street, no emotion in my heart is deceiving. This is true for consumers, as well as for watch factories. For the brands that first introduced some new technology, when this technology that once allowed them to walk and take the wind is no longer rare, then how to maintain their own advantages in the future will become To their biggest problem. The first option is to continue to refine the technology and do something that low-end brands that also use this technology cannot do-for example, the same ceramic ring, Rolex and OMEGA hollowed out the scale numbers and plated them inside Tricks such as platinum and liquid metal are not learned from other cheap diving watches. The second option is to open a new battlefield and continue to look for other high-tech. Everyone uses PVD to make DLC, and DLC is not very powerful. There are ceramics, carbon fiber, and sapphire crystal. Anyway, the function of mechanical watches is back to the previous one. The century has already been developed almost. If you only pay attention to dazzling skills, the solution will always come up. Do you think this situation is healthy? I don’t think it can be called healthy, but many industries have been creating demand rather than satisfying it, so it is understandable to take this path, but in the meantime, there are still a few that we can do better and let the future Things that don’t seem so stupid when you think about it are worth noting. First of all, you need to hone your eyesight and learn to judge good and bad. Also, the quality of the bezel made of ceramics is absolutely different from that of low-end brands. It’s better than some cheap ceramic circles, and instead of the beautiful text written on the superstitious product manuals, it is better to learn to understand the real connection between price and value. Then again, the brand itself is not honest enough. When new technology comes out, it must be more expensive, but is it really that expensive? It’s hard to say in the middle. A watch factory that spent money on research and development and bought equipment. In the early stage, there is absolutely a cost to be recovered. It is a bit expensive to sell, but do n’t blow the bubble too much. Sell as much as you want. Otherwise, a few years later. He broke his own foot when broken. Isograph of carbon hairspring is not easy to make, Hollow carbon hairspring needs to be burned first, Then, amorphous carbon is poured into it, It feels more troublesome than silicon hairsprings. For example, this year’s TAG Heuer is quite sincere. Their newly developed carbon hairspring Isograph is based on the past, it’s expensive for two or three years. In addition to the earliest tourbillon, new technologies were popularized into ordinary movements at once. For example, the Autaria watch with a ceramic ring and copper price in mainland China was priced at 31,500 yuan. It is also said that TAG Heuer has not produced much for user experience, and it has been promoted to the main watch series for more than a year. In my opinion, testing the maturity of new technologies can’t just be handed to consumers at the top of the pyramid. The masses can afford them, and then participate together, which is more conducive to brand development. Do not ask for powder, just talk about the public number of the watch
Speaking of the magical design and timing function of mechanical timepieces, I think all of you friends can list one or two. Watch designers have worked hard on the main functions of this watch, making these watches highly ornamental and unique charm, becoming a model of the moment. The Cartier watch is an outstanding example of pursuing this ‘unexpected’ effect. Each timepiece is a capital ‘Saples’, just like this mysterious hour function rose gold introduced by the watch house editor today. Like a watch, can you guess how the hollow transparent dial is connected to the movement? Sell it first, and you’ll know the answer after reading it. (Watch model: WHCL0002)
Surprised ‘eccentric’ disk
Speaking of this dial, I have to admire the superb craftsmanship and outstanding imagination and creativity of Cartier watchmakers. The secret of the watch’s travel is not in the hands, but in the sapphire glass in the dial. The seemingly ordinary glass actually has a lot in it. In our past traditional view, the movement of the hand can indicate time, and this timepiece is just the opposite. The sword-shaped rhodium-plated steel hands of the watch are set on the glass and will not rotate. Instead, the two layers of glass below the hands drive the hands to indicate the time. The sapphire glass has a device connected to the movement to provide power for the time. . After the above description, you will understand how this timepiece ‘hiding the sky’.
‘Eccentricity’ and hollow design make you more enamoured
Off-centre hour and minute indicator display
The ‘eccentric’ design is presumably not so unfamiliar to everyone, unlike the watch with the traditional dial design. It always has a magical and unique charm that can’t be stopped. In people’s feelings, lovers often tend to favor each other to express their love for each other. In fact, the charm of eccentric watches is similar to this phenomenon, breaking through the traditional center position, making people feel bright at first sight, or even fall in love at first sight. The design of the watch is not limited to this. It also has a silver-plated hollow grille device on the dial, with a sunray radiation effect, and part of the movement is missing between the avant-garde blue elegant Roman numerals and the watch is added. The watchfulness and aesthetics show the unique charm of mechanical watches to watchers.
Watch case display
The 41mm 18k rose gold case, with a thickness of 11.25mm, is smooth and natural after sanding. With its unique luster, it is exquisite, understated and luxurious, making it a classic timepiece.
Watch crown display
The same 18k rose gold crown is beautifully set with a deep, restrained sapphire. The rose gold texture is soft and comfortable to operate. As a whole, the chic crown and case are perfectly integrated into one, making the watch more natural and attractive.
Watch movement display
The hollow design of the dial and the back-through style of the back of the watch fully show you the ‘heart’ of this timepiece, which is a visual feast. The watch uses Cartier’s 9981 MC workshop to craft a manual winding mechanical movement with a balance frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and a power reserve of approximately 48 hours.
Watch strap display
Watch buckle display
The watch is connected to a dark brown alligator leather strap, and the ‘crack’ on the strap also adds to the beauty of the watch. This makes such a watch very mature and atmospheric charm for men. The strap with 18k rose gold folding buckle protects the watch from slipping off the wrist.

Summary: Classic timepieces and unique design ideas always give people a bright feeling, full of magical and charming surprises for you to discover and explore. This Cartier Key series watch introduced to you today is mature and atmospheric, and has a good watch experience. If you like creativity and unique features, you can consider starting this Cartier Mysterious Hour Function Rose Gold Watch. Watch price: RMB 448000
The innovative design concept from Italy collided with Switzerland’s top professional watchmaking craftsmanship, and the Bvlgari watch was created in accordance with the essence of watchmaking culture in both countries. The OCTO series is one of the representatives. It breaks the tradition and blends square and circle, combined with the geometric shape of the octagon, to fully express Bulgari’s creative talents. Uninhibited is the soul of the OCTO series, and it is the OCTO series’ understanding of men’s personality. In the development of watches, Bulgari also takes this as the benchmark, breaking records many times. The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic (watch model: 102711) keeps pace with this series of tourbillon watches, minute repeaters and skeleton tourbillon watches, constantly surpassing the limits, reaching a new ultra-thin peak.
