How much is the Rolex logo worth?

Paul Newman Paul Newman Ditonnas, a mythical presence in the world of watches.

The special and rare old-fashioned Diagonal with a special dial, named after the veteran actor Paul Newman who wore it, and the 6239 that he himself wore, sold for an astronomical sum at a 2017 auction by Foyez.

Today, Paul Newman has become synonymous with this particular type of dialed Daytona, and is sought after by players and speculators of great purchasing power.

However, there is another lesser known Rolex celebrity watch, the Jean-Claude Killy.

Who is Jean-Claude Killy?

For those who love skiing, the French alpine skier Jean-Claude Killy is probably no stranger to the sport, as he was an astonishing winner of various events in the 1960s.

He won the European Cup in 1965, the World Cup in 1967 and three gold medals in alpine skiing at the 1968 Winter Olympics (the second athlete to do so in Olympic history).

Not only that, but he went on to become a Rolex brand ambassador and board member.

Among the vintage Rolexes, there is also a watch named after Jean-Claude Killy.

Between 1947 and 1962, Rolex issued a new series of timepieces: the Dato-Compax full calendar chronograph.

The models 4767, 5036, 6036 and 6236 are rare as they were issued in limited numbers.

This is one of the most complex timepieces ever produced by Rolex.

It is now known as the Jean-Claude Killy, as Killy often wore a 6236.

One of the steel 6236 models, fitted with an Oyster studded strap, sold for HK$4,410,000 at a Foyez auction in November last year.

Similar pieces

However, looking back, there are countless similar models from different brands using the same calibre (Valjoux 72) as the Killy Watch during the same period (1950s-60s).

By coincidence, I found a Seminan Le Cheminant full calendar moon phase chronograph.

The brand is so small that it is unheard of. After all,buy fake watches it was once dedicated to the Royal Navy’s chronometers and bridge clocks.

Although its Valjoux 88 calibre adds a moon phase function to the Type 72, it is the same calibre as the Jean-Claude Killy in terms of shape, face and movement.

*The Valjoux movement is famous in the world of timekeeping and has been used by pp for 40 years and Rolex for 20 years; the Valjoux 72 movement was also used by early Daytona and it was once hailed as the perfect movement in the history of timekeeping.

In the course of my research, I was surprised to find that this Cheminan was listed in the book, which happened to be the one I found (with the same number).

It was made around the 1950s and 1960s in the very same Jean-Claude Killy case model used in the Rolex Dato-Compax during the same period, and is very much an Oyster in its own right. The 37mm diameter is one of the few oversizes of the era.

The dial, with its teardrop hour-markers and toffee hands, has a neat, restrained functional layout, like a refined old gentleman. The moon phase face at six o’clock, however, is so innocent that it gives the dial a little more energy.

Opening the screw-down water-resistant caseback and admiring the structure and mechanism of the Valjoux 88, one cannot help but feel that the Valjoux manufacture is no more.

The movement is also protected against magnetism by a soft iron cap and against shocks by an Incabloc oscillating weight.

It is not often that a steel chronograph with a large calibre complication born in that era is in good condition to this day.

Of course, apart from its acknowledged good condition, what impresses me about this Le Cheminant is the teardrop-shaped hour markers.

After years of oxidation and luminous failure, they remind me of my grandmother’s old plum watch, like a peacock’s open tail.

The Rolex Jean-Claude Killy, on the other hand, is more expensive than its contemporaries, which can cost a million or more.

While the brand’s influence is huge, note that Rolex has built on the V72 movement, but has improved components such as shock absorbers, balance-springs and water-resistant crowns – in short, it has built its reputation on technical optimisation, which is also to its credit.

In this way, the interaction between core technology and the brand’s heritage has created enormous leverage to date.

But for the average person, a Rolex Killy Watch is not really affordable. The good news is that, at the same time, the Valjoux chronographs of other brands were still affordable and did not empty the wallet.

Take this example of the Seminan Le Cheminant, which, even in near-stock condition, is almost too expensive to show off in front of the aforementioned Rolex.

It’s a case of different brands,replica hublot watches different watch fortunes!

Apart from Valjoux, there are also vintage chronograph movements such as Minerva, Venus, Lemania and the former king Longines.

Although they have all quietly risen in price, they are still worth exploring for new watch enthusiasts.

Although five matchsticks are worth a lot of money, the world of watchmaking should be more interesting than that.

The Realm of Reproduction Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Dive Watch Review

Last year, Blancpain restyled one of its 50 Fathoms models, the Bathyscaphe. The first Fifty Fathoms was created in 1952 and is known as the ancestor of diving watches. I have to admit that when I first looked at replica Blancpain watches this replica Deep Submersible I really had no sense of it, because it was just so bland and uninspiring: the dull case; the plain dial; the stale colors; the awkward hands; the large crown that didn’t match the overall size; the hard-to-twist bezel and the movement that was always a black mass from a distance; not a watch that looked premium by any means, much less I didn’t really understand why Blancpain had to reproduce such a watch, because I didn’t like it.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Series 5000-1110-B52A

I just picked it up and took a look at it, but I didn’t feel anything, so I gave it to my colleagues and told them to look at it first. I thought, I thought colleagues must be the same as my thoughts, think this watch boring, put it aside to do their own thing, but when I looked up, so I did not expect the scene happened, we are even in a serious and careful look at it. At that moment, I couldn’t help but weakly ask, “Is this watch that worth looking at? After about half an hour, I came to my opinion of the watch: it’s a watch that you absolutely can’t stand at first glance; it’s a watch that you absolutely can’t put down when you look through an inch glass; it’s a watch where every detail is handled perfectly. It’s also a watch whose reproduction reaches a very high level.

First of all, we need to talk about the issue of reproduction, reproduction literally means re-engraving, put on the watch is a new manufacturing, according to common sense, reproduction is generally not as valuable as the original, but the problem is, the original is no longer available, and the original mold is gone, but we extremely like the original look, what to do? Then the only way to do it again is to reopen the mold and do it again as the original, and so the question arises, is the reproduction a copy of the original or not? Or do you make the appropriate changes for the times? Both issues have long been hotly debated. The reason why people love the original version is actually more of a kind of sentiment. In addition, due to the limitations of the original technical conditions at the time, there will be different degrees of shortcomings. If you copy the shortcomings without solving them, I believe most people will not be able to accept it, because those shortcomings were acceptable only at the time, but they are absolutely acceptable today. The model.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Series 5000-1110-B52A

In my opinion, a good replica should have three elements: firstly, retain the important features of the original; secondly, make appropriate modifications according to the current mainstream aesthetics; thirdly, incorporate the One of them is a brand called Singer, which has kept the original and recreated it, while at the same time retaining a sense of tradition. One is the Porsche 901, recreated by a brand called Singer, and the other is Blancpain’s Deep Submersible. I always think that the highest level of reproduction is to seemingly stay the same, but in fact all the changes, except for the shape of the case and bezel of this deep submersible, all other elements have been changed, I think this is exactly Blancpain’s cleverness, as we all know, the shape of the case and bezel is the soul of the whole watch, as long as the most distinctive family lineage characteristics are captured, no matter how many other parts are altered, it will make people feel that this watch is the most beautiful. The blood of the original runs in the veins, and in addition, Blancpain has not only retained the shape of the original, but has also expanded the size to the popular 43mm in keeping with the times.

Perhaps it is because Blancpain has caught the soul of this watch too accurately that most people will not look at it at first glance, because after all, the deep submersible comes from military watches, and the biggest characteristic of military watches is to focus on performance rather than appearance, so this watch not only will not make people shine but also make people think that it is rather old-fashioned. The case is made of stainless steel or titanium, and its surface is not as fine as the original, but as satin-finished as that of a top-class watch. The lugs in particular, with their three facets on the outermost edge of the case, are a perfect example of this. In my opinion, the greatest thing about this watch is the beveled slice on the lugs, which is not only the soul of the watch, but also the basis for its multiple visual layering, so I also call the beveled slice the deep diver slice. It will only be longer if it is closed, which will directly affect the wearer’s performance. When you turn the watch 90 degrees horizontally and look at the side, you will also see that it is this facet that makes the watch look so slim.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Series 5000-1110-B52A

Of course, the deep-submersible’s faceting also contributes to the fact that the lugs are not awkwardly cut across the entire face. The fathoms are a collection of fathomless fathoms, and the fathomless fathoms are a collection of fathomless fathomless fathomless fathomless fathoms. It ensures the strength of the lugs and also alleviates the problem of the lugs appearing rigid due to the straight cut, not to mention the aesthetics of the wearer due to the tip.
Although the rotatable bezel, which measures the amount of oxygen in the watch, looks plain, it actually uses the world’s most advanced Liquidmetal technology, which has been heavily corroded by time and seawater. The metal and ceramics are truly integrated, so it is absolutely resistant to deformation caused by severe shocks, and the scale does not disappear even if it deforms. Thanks to the genuine integration of metal and ceramic, it is absolutely resistant to deformation caused by impacts, even if the indices are deformed, and the use of ceramic means that only diamonds can leave scratches on the bezel. Blancpain’s use of the latest technology to restore as much of the classic look as possible is truly impressive!

The first and most obvious is the luminous scale, except for the 3, 6, 9 and 12 positions which are trapezoidal, the rest of the positions are changed from the original long scale to a dot scale. The polished tapered bezel, especially on the outside of the luminescent material, adds to the vintage look of the watch. The original hands were just a simple square piece, but the new one has a larger diameter, which makes it silly to treat them the same way as before, so the hands have become thin and thick. In fact, there are many more details as thoughtful as this on this watch. For example, although the color of the dial is similar to the original, we can clearly see the extremely fine radiating brushed lines through the black paint, and the date window has been playfully placed between 4 and 5 o’clock in order not to spoil each of the delicate indices, and of course the crown, which has been edged to ensure that it can be operated smoothly by divers wearing gloves, while retaining the original’s large size. It was corner-cut and typed JB. The most exciting modification to this watch is, of course, the movement, which is powered by Blancpain’s own 1315 calibre, a movement that may look black from afar, but it has a lot of power. I don’t know the exact material of this balance wheel, but I always feel like it’s made of gold, because the polishing is amazing, even the polishing of those four fine adjustment screws is so shiny. In addition to that gleaming balance wheel, the hairspring is also not to be underestimated, and is made of the hottest material of the moment, silicon, which is anti-magnetic and also extremely resistant to corrosion, abrasion and aging.
The movement has three barrels and a power reserve of 120 hours. In my mind, 50 Fathoms is probably the most durable diving watch in the world, especially the large grey oscillating weight, which provides a constant power source. The style of the watch, rather than using plating to hide the precious metal seems to be extremely low-key, but in fact it is extremely luxurious, I think only Blancpain with such a strong brand of magnanimity can do. In fact, the understated luxury of this movement is not only reflected in the oscillating weight, but also in the polishing, as we see the entire surface of the bridges of the movement has not done much treatment, and can even be described as rough, but when you see the edge of any of the bridges, you will suck in a breath of cold air and exclaim, Blancpain is really great, these bevels are wonderfully enchanting. Unlike the beveled chamfer, which is usually found only on highly complicated models and is considered the highest level of chamfering polishing, we see it on a practical 300m professional dive watch, a polishing technique that is many times superior to those who only decorate with Geneva stripes and do not bother with chamfering! It can’t help but be a gift from God! Finally, I would like to say to those of you who have a problem with this watch, please don’t judge a watch by its looks, this Deep Diver is definitely a great watch to pick up and savor with an inch glass, it will keep on surprising you, trust me!

In addition, the Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie has developed the Monaco V4, powered by a belt, the Carrera Mikrograph, which measures and indicates 1/100th of a second with a central hand, the Carrera Mikrotimer, accurate to 1/1,000th of a second, and the Carrera Chronograph, accurate to 5/10,000th of a second. Mikrogirder. engineers and watchmakers have taken on the challenge of replacing the escapement with a micro-blade and a magnetic force. This excellence in watchmaking has earned TAG Heuer a place on the Swiss watchmaking elite’s Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie.

Audemars Piguet Jule Audemars Skeleton Minute Repeater – The Beauty of Tone and Perspective

Audemars Piguet Jule Audemars Skeleton Minute Repeater – The Beauty of Tone and Perspective

replica Audemars Piguet watches , one of the few watchmakers still run by its founding family, is also a major player in the field of grand complications. As early as 1889, Audemars Piguet introduced pocket watches with minute repeater, split-seconds chronograph and perpetual calendar functions. In 1892, when wristwatches were still a rarity, Audemars Piguet introduced the world’s first minute repeater wristwatch, naturally similar in appearance to a pocket watch but with additional lugs and bracelet links at the top and bottom.

Jumping is by no means the protagonist. It uses a hollow movement. In order to be more classical, the splint is treated with red K gold plating. Under the very three-dimensional dial, there are luxurious golden lines.

During the mechanical renaissance that began at the end of the 1980s, Audemars Piguet launched a number of emblematic complications, including the Jumping Hour Minute Repeater in 1992, which combined the two aforementioned functions. However, with its dimensions of only 34x37mm and its internal jumping minute repeater calibre 2865, the watch was only 22.6mm in diameter, which was indeed slightly small for modern times. In 2006, Audemars Piguet launched a new generation of Jule Audemars, the skeletonized version of which we will present here.
The main feature of this new generation of Audemars Piguet’s minute repeater is its larger size: not only is the watch 43mm larger, but the 2907SQ caliber inside is 37mm in diameter (the main body is 29.3mm). The movement has a double gong and a double hammer that can be clearly seen through the transparent caseback. In practice, the minute repeater chimes with a clear and resonant sound, and even the power of the hammers can be felt, which is above average, but the sound of the decelerator is slightly more pronounced.

Jumping is by no means the protagonist. It uses a hollow movement. In order to be more classical, the splint is treated with red K gold plating. Under the very three-dimensional dial, there are luxurious golden lines.

As the previous minute repeater had a jump disc located at the top left of the faceplate and was smaller in size, the ratio of the numbers in the jump window was not great. In order to improve readability, the jumping disc is considerably larger, spanning the central hand and the small seconds hand at six o’clock, and its jumping module construction extends the movement’s diameter to 37 mm. In addition to the minute repeater and jumping hour functions, the skeletonisation technique is also an important feature of this model, with the use of pink gold to highlight the differences between the plates and the components. Each plate is finished with a fine ichthyoscopic and filigree finish, while the bevels of the parts are also polished. Through the openwork design, not only can you see the operation of the jumping mechanism, but also the hammer and moving parts are clearly visible when the chime function is activated.

Why it’s ideal for all men. The Patek Philippe Nautilus Annual Calendar.

I wonder if the two founders of replica PATEK PHILIPPE watches would have predicted that when the brand was founded, it would not be able to achieve its goals. More than a hundred years later, an innovative collection that goes beyond the classics – the Nautilus – will be featured in sports watches and even on entire bezels! Making Waves. Today, the Nautilus has become an integral part of Patek Philippe, and it has acquired another The widely known name – the Nautilus. Today, we take a closer look at an annual calendar watch from this collection. (Ref: 5726/1A-014)

Patek Philippe Sport Elegance 5726/1A-014

The Nautilus collection is both elegant and sporty, in fact, it is this characteristic that makes it one of the most versatile watches in the collection. Stand out. In the Patek Philippe Museum in Switzerland, you can see that the history of Patek Philippe can be traced back to the time before the two founders joined forces. Throughout its long history, Patek Philippe has always maintained in its timepieces that “reliability is the hallmark of innovation”. Watchmaking philosophy. Thus, bringing us one rare piece after another.

Patek Philippe Sport Elegance 5726/1A-014

This Nautilus Annual Calendar watch was presented to the public for the first time at Baselworld 2019, thanks to the The Nautilus collection has been extremely well received by consumers, thanks to its innovative dial design and functions. attention. In the history of Patek Philippe watchmaking, complications have generally, or overwhelmingly, come in precious metal cases. The watch, however, was paired with a sporty steel model, and at first, the public opinion was not favorable.

Patek Philippe Sport Elegance 5726/1A-014

With a 40.5 mm case diameter, the iconic square case with a dial displaying the date, day of the week, month and moon phase. The smoky gradient dial design gives this 5726 more detail and depth in its design. The gradient blue and black dial looks different in different light and angles and adds more fun for the wearer.

The moon phase dial of this annual calendar watch is integrated into the date window, and the layout of the dial remains symmetrical. The hands and hour markers are coated with a luminescent coating to ensure that the wearer can keep track of the time even in dim conditions. On the oscillating weight of the movement, the iconic Patek Philippe hallmark is clearly visible. This means that the watch is of genuine Patek Philippe origin. The 324 S QA LU 24H self-winding movement with date, month and moon-equivalent functions, as well as an automatic storage capacity of 324 S QA LU 24H, is a true Patek Philippe. It is often around 35-45 hours.

For more than 180 years, Patek Philippe has represented a pioneering and innovative force in the watchmaking industry. Since then, Patek Philippe has made a number of important breakthroughs in the field of watchmaking that have defined the way we look at watchmaking today. A way to measure time. People who love time and mechanics are proud to own a Patek Philippe, but even so, we know – “We never! Truly owning a Patek Philippe, we’re just keeping it safe for the next generation”.

Patek Philippe Ref. 5015 and Ref. 5396.

Sports watches are all the rage these days, and the Cheap Patek Philippe watches  blue-face 5711 is hard to come by, and this year marks the 40th anniversary of the Nautilus. It’s definitely a topical series, and Aquanaut’s 5167 is a popular fried chicken, but I always thought that the The Calatrava is a timeless classic with a simple and elegant look. The 5015 was my first performance Patek Philippe purchase in the 1990s, and the 5396 is the most functional in terms of overall shape and design. Appealing to me.

The appearance of Patek Philippe’s 5015 officer case with openable back cover, perfect performance layout and magnetic white dial is a perfect combination.

Watches with a strong classicist style and craftsmanship usually have a classic look, which is timeless, irreplaceable, and can be handed down. A classic that will always be dear to the heart. In the 1990s, Patek Philippe introduced the 5015, an officer’s case with an openable caseback, a perfect performance layout and a magnetized case. The white dial was a classic model that drove many fans of the watch crazy. The most special feature of the 5015 is its moon phase, which has the ability to indicate the “age of the moon” with 135 teeth. to an error of only one day every 122 years, so a pointer running at the same pace as the month was added to the middle of the moon phase display window, and A day-by-day scale was added above the umbrella window of the moon phase so that the date of the lunar calendar could be clearly displayed, the first of its kind that year. A watch with this feature is well worth collecting.

This is the earliest platinum version I have, the hallmark is still an antelope head rather than a St. Bernard dog head, and it belongs to a pre-1995 vintage! Hallmark. The 5015 is powered by a Cal.240 movement with a micro-rotor in 22k gold, unidirectional winding and is a thinner version of the Design, thickness 2.4MM, frequency 21,600 vibrations, equipped with a single layer of alloy hairspring, by the balance wheel can change the eight torsional pitch It is a new generation of self-winding movements developed by Patek Philippe in the 1970s, with the Masselotte counterweight screw to fine-tune the speed. It has been in use for nearly 40 years and can be found in models up to the perpetual calendar, performing quite competently. The officer’s case with an opening back has been very popular, and the subsequent 5059 Perpetual Calendar and 5013 basic models have been well received. Good, the 36mm scale is optimal, and although it looks a bit too small now, the classic will always be intriguing. Incidentally, Patek Philippe 5227 has the Calatrava model, but it also has the exclusive design of an open back clearance, which is the only one of its kind. A classic among classics, well worth owning.

Patek Philippe’s 5396 ivory white dial and arrow-shaped hands are the most attractive classic style in all the PP calendars.

Patek Philippe’s 5396 has had a total of three dial designs to date, the first 5396 being a railroad split scale, willow leaf hands. Very elegant, the second generation of the 5396 has the same performance configuration, but the ivory dial and arrow-shaped hands are very attractive to me, playing with the watch. The 5396 has been in my collection for a long time, as all of my friends know the deadly attraction of watches and how hard it is to get rid of a poisoned watch. The 5396’s charm is irresistible: the bar-shaped hour markers are fitted with a bead splitting scale and two apertures at the bottom of the 12 o’clock display, from left to right, showing The day of the week and the month, there is a twenty-four hour performance displayed by the hands around the lower moon dial, so it is easy to understand the morning and afternoon time. In the part where the date is changed, the hand slowly shifts the date at 11:40 p.m. and bounces at about 12:40 p.m., when the calendar It is a bit muddled and muddled to the left, and not until 1:30 a.m. that it is righted to the right again and returns to the correct position. It’s a problem with the overall design of the calendar structure of the Patek Philippe Annual Calendar, which is common to all annual calendars and which I prefer. Being concerned.

The 324 of the first generation is a Geneva Seal, my 5396 belongs to the first batch of the second generation, also a Geneva Seal, and after this batch That is why I switched to the Patek Philippe Seal. According to the manufacturer, the accuracy of the Patek Philippe Seal has been improved and I am very concerned about whether it is more accurate than the chronometer! Certified level, it’s a good thing that the 5396 with the Hallmark of Geneva is in good condition, about three seconds faster a day, which is already very satisfying! .

The 324 movement equipped with the 5396 increased the seismic frequency from 21600 to 28800. The accuracy is better, the automatic disk is thickened, and the winding performance is also improved.

The pre-1970s Patek Philippe automatic calibres 600 and 460 are collectors’ items and are considered to be the finest of all players. The model, characterized by precision and durability, good winding efficiency, and a Gyromax balance with a double hairspring, is almost flawless. The 28-255 was used by Patek Philippe from the 1970s onwards, the best known model being the first generation 3700 with a 42mm diameter. Stainless steel is currently trading at around $50,000 and is a collector’s item, followed by the introduction of the 240 and 310 calibers. The heart of Patek Philippe’s automatic watches, but these successors had nothing to do with the initial 600 and 460 in terms of design or system. Totally different, unlike IWC’s Pellaton system, even after nearly sixty years the latest movement is still the same. It uses a “woodpecker” winding mechanism. Patek Philippe has now adopted the 324 movement, which is similar in construction to its predecessors in the 300 series, including the 315 and 330. For comparison, the eight Masselotte counterweight screws on the inside of the balance wheel have been replaced with four, with the factory claiming that fewer screws help the Balance of the balance wheel.

In the early days of the Patek Philippe Calibre, the counterweight screws were mounted on the balance ring in a complicated process that was later modified for mass production. The screws are installed on the inside of the balance wheel, which is less difficult to make, but in fact, 6 or 2 screws are just as good for fine-tuning effect. It will do the job, except that the eight are still in the style of the early Patek Philippe, which was a favorite of Patek Philippe fans. The 324 also increases the frequency from 21,600 to 28,800 for better accuracy, a thicker rotor, and improved winding efficiency. Basically, it is a partial improvement in performance, and now with the replacement of the silicon crystal hairspring and other escapement mechanisms, it has improved the accuracy of the runtime.

The 5035, the first annual calendar model launched in 1996, is an unprecedented feature. In its twentieth year, Patek Philippe introduced the third dial, the 5396, with a sword-shaped hand for the Arabic numerals in plain English. It doesn’t match, but it would be better with a willow leaf hand, which would be a perfect combination with a Breguet hand. Patek Philippe’s 5041 or the limited edition 5153, created for London last year, also have Arabic letters and Breguet hands, which are the perfect combination for a watch like this. The clock is the classic orthodox way of doing things.

Tell me about the world’s number one watch, the Patek Philippe.

replica Patek Philippe watches is a historical brand, yes, founded in 1839, but that’s not very important, most of what people call it No Swiss brand is too late, not even earlier, like Breguet in 1775 or Jaeger-LeCoultre in 1833! , Tissot was also founded in 1853 and so on. It’s also true that most of Patek Philippe’s watches are made of precious metals, but it’s also true that the top brands use precious metals as their primary material. For example, A. Lange & Söhne hardly produces any watches made of cheap metal, and Patek Philippe has quite a few watches made of cheap metal. A part of the watches are stainless steel, so that’s not his main reason. Many of you have also talked about rarity, and indeed, Patek Philippe does not make more than 10,000 of these at any one time, and the cumulative number of pieces produced to date is also very small. But over 600,000 of them, but is that the most important reason? Obviously not, because equally exceptional brands like GreubelForsey, Roger Dubuis, etc. produce so few watches each year that it’s hard to argue with them. Not as much as one watch series from Patek Philippe, like the Blancpain Fuchs, which only produces 100-150 watches per year. Other friends say that all Patek Philippe watches are handmade, how many of the top watches are not handmade? This is equally unconvincing. Others argue that many of Patek Philippe’s watches are meticulously engraved and are works of art, but Vacheron Constantin’s Artisan Collection, the Jaquetro Why are you the “King of Watches”, Patek Philippe?

First, Patek Philippe has the beauty of innovation.

Patek Philippe is a master of innovation, and since its founding in 1839 it has patented a number of products, including a screwdriver, a screwdriver, and a watchmaker’s watch. Winding, precision adjuster, double timer, large spiral balance wheel, peripheral automatic winding rotor, and related balance wheel spindles This is an unparalleled beauty that many brands have not been able to match. The beauty of this unparalleled innovation is something not many brands can match.

Secondly, Patek Philippe has the beauty of understatement.

What do you guys think is the beauty of understatement? Patek Philippe’s mastery of complications is second to none, but many of its complication models are not as sophisticated as some of the others. The dials are as varied and dazzling as the brand’s, and there are even a lot of “dizzy” buttons on the side of the watch. Simple and straightforward, even such important complications as the tourbillon are not “shown off” on the dial, but on the case back, if not on the case back. Turned upside down, not even visible, and even the back of the watch is also designed with a beautiful and exquisite plate, let a person admire, this kind of “deep hidden merit and fame”! “The understated beauty, I’m afraid that many brands can only hope.

Innovation, understatement, confidence, in our view, this is what makes Patek Philippe unique, and even the soul of Patek Philippe, which is precisely what others want to imitate are difficult to learn, because of the pursuit of each other and the different realm.

Third, the “touching” legend

If those two points above are still visible uniqueness, then this is the unseen, but felt uniqueness. I’m sure many watch brands have some particularly touching or appealing legend, but as soon as a Patek Philippe is remembered or mentioned It’s true that it’s rare to find a brand that is immediately revered, and this feeling is of course the result of a combination of many perceptual pathways, not necessarily one or two. This includes what friends talk about, what leaders love, what stories inspire, what ads inspire, etc., such as one of Patek Philippe’s most iconic lines The slogan “Nobody owns a Patek Philippe, they’re just keeping it for the next generation” is not just for watches, I’m afraid, but for any other business! It’s hard to find such overbearing confidence, and it’s not without reason that some explain it as being rooted in genetics. And then there are the watch auctions that regularly make the headlines, with Patek Philippe almost always holding the record for the most expensive watch and the most expensive record! It’s hard not to feel good about Patek Philippe after such an onslaught of information for those who follow the watch regularly.
