    Classic And Luxurious Comment On Baume & Mercier’s Latest Appointment Series 10163 Watch

    Baume & Mercier watches create unique masterpieces dedicated to women with their innate charm, and fully interpret the femininity, which is loved by women. This tradition began in 1869 when Louis Victor Baume, the founder of Baume & Mercier, gave his daughter Mélina a gold pocket watch, and started the women’s watch with this love story. In 1918, William Baume and Paul Mercier established a partnership in Geneva, and the two co-founded the Baume & Mercier brand. Since then, they have launched a number of iconic jewellery watches, leading the wave of the Art Deco period. These exquisite watch wear designs and sturdy appearance have become a sincere declaration of women’s liberation.

      In the ‘Golden 50s’ (the heyday of the watch), a steady stream of inspiration gave birth to a variety of models, such as the Marquise watch with ‘bracelet’ bracelet. These designs have contributed greatly to the revolution of women’s watches, writing the most magnificent chapter in the history of watchmaking in the 20th century. Baume & Mercier seized the opportunity of creation and gave the brand watches more exquisite jewellery watch charm in the 1960s. With its elegance and exquisiteness, it embodies Baume & Mercier’s leading position in women’s timepieces.

    Summary: This 34mm diameter watch is equipped with a classic and luxurious polished / satin-finished two-tone case, which combines stainless steel and red gold. The name of the watch echoes the promise perfectly. The watch is equipped with a Swiss-made self-winding movement. The watch features a delicate silver dial with a guilloché pattern, embellished with gold-plated Roman numerals and diamond-set engravings. The watch is paired with a smooth, polished satin-finished two-tone bracelet to accompany women wearing this watch through every important moment in their lives.

    2013 Sihh Craft Tour Van Cleef & Arpels

    I said before that Van Cleef & Arpels is undoubtedly the most artistic brand of SIHH this year, and this year’s breakthrough is the most obvious. If the watch is a normal watch, then it can be said that none of the watches it produced this year are normal (has exceeded the scope of clocks). When we pay attention to its beautiful dials, watching the production process is also an art journey .

     We explained the Charms Extraordinaires series and Poetic Complication series in previous articles. In fact, Van Cleef & Arpels has another important series this year, which is the Extraordinary Dials craft watch series. The series also uses the most technology on the dial. The extraordinary dial series has two themes this year, namely Papillons (Butterfly) and Cerfts-Volants (Paper Kite). Let’s talk about the butterfly theme first. The butterfly symbolizes poetic and endless nature. Especially for China, people use the metaphor of metamorphosis to show loyal love. In the 1920s, Van Cleef & Arpels designed butterfly-shaped brooches and earrings. In the 1970s, Mystery Setting (concealed mosaic method); mother-of-pearl and lacquered wood were used to interpret the ‘butterfly’ design. This year’s five butterfly watches represent the spring return to the earth, the recovery of all things and the different moods of butterflies in the four seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter.

     Lapis lazuli (the blue ring on the dial) showcases the setting of hard gems with metal carving, the background and butterfly outline are carved with mother-of-pearl, and the wings are cut out of enamel and diamond.

     The dial is inlaid with white mother-of-pearl, and the enamel technique is used to describe the summer scene. The penetrating hollow enamel under the brush outlines the butterfly’s gold-rimmed colorful wings. The unpolished curved enamel creates strawberries that are enough to distort, while the carved enamel is used to depict the delicate green leaves.

     The crystal clear butterfly comes from the hollow enamel process, which is particularly bright against the background of mother-of-pearl. The wings are gradual golden brown, echoing the semicircular sun with gold foil enamel engraving, and the butterfly’s body is an olive-shaped diamond.

     The delicate white K gold butterfly wing frame is gripping against the dark black and transparent enamel. The round diamonds are transformed into snowflakes to outline a winter snow scene.

     The gradual hollow enamel allows light to penetrate the wings, a layer of gold foil under the transparent enamel, faintly reveals a bit of golden light, and the diamond turns into crystal dew to shine throughout the night sky.

     When I fully appreciated all Van Cleef & Arpels watches this year, I found that Van Cleef & Arpels really has a unique preference for the butterfly, not only launched five butterfly watches, even four paper kite-themed watches are butterfly-shaped The colorful butterfly fluttered high, letting its butterflies gracefully fly over the sky, and shed a full blessing.
     This is the first time Van Cleef & Arpels has applied micro-painting technology to mother-of-pearl, making the dial design more three-dimensional and showing a bright light. The mother-of-pearl sculpture on the dial is transformed into a beautiful relief, as if breathing life into the dreamy and misty scene.

    Such meticulous work must be performed under a microscope.

     When doing micro-painting, not only the shape, but also the light and shade and the gradation.
     
     The painted dial comes to life without assembly.
     
     Finally, I present a large picture of the watch box of the paper kite-themed watch. From the picture, we can know that the difficulty of making this watch box is no less than that of a watch. It still uses a lot of inlaying and painting techniques. In addition, the picture also tells us that we must collect four models!

    Ap Royal Oak Offshore Camouflage Play Addictive Even Blue Camouflage Appears In 2019

    AUDEMARS PIGUET Audemars Piguet also launched a number of ROO automatic chronographs in 2018, which are mainly 42mm styles, with only one 44mm version being the exception. Compared to the 42mm version, which has both precious metal and stainless steel versions, there are many options for color matching. The 44mm is challenged with a signature stainless steel case, but it is special because it is replaced with a green ceramic bezel, and even the rubber strap is opened. The brand precedent was replaced by camouflage design. Many people’s eyes were bright after the launch of the full-fashioned taste. In 2019, the brand continued this momentum and released the ROO chronograph with three camouflage straps in one breath. This time In addition to the modified green camouflage, there are also blue camouflage and chocolate camouflage, which makes it more troublesome to want to start this.

    Audemars Piguet is one of the pioneers in the research and development of ceramic materials for altarpieces. Although it has been relatively less focused on ceramic materials in recent years, since green ceramics in 2018, there are new colors like blue ceramics in 2019, which is refreshing.

    Feature 1: Green camouflage is not enough, plus blue camouflage
    In the past, the Royal Oak offshore chronograph, regardless of the 42mm or 44mm version, is still more traditional and conservative. At most, it is a case made of different materials and a two-tone faceplate. However, in recent years, Audemars Piguet has been slow on the diving watch series. Slowly started to inject more bold color schemes to make people refreshing. The new 44mm ROO chronograph in 2019 seems to have inadvertently and unintentionally infected this young and free atmosphere. First of all, it is the first series in the series to see the blue ceramic bezel. The blue ceramics are also included in the handles and crowns, etc.), and the blue dial is full of ocean-like vitality. These details have made this look unique.

    If you are a bit deterred by the blue camouflage strap, the brand also prepared a plain blue strap that can be replaced to provide the wearer with a different style

    Feature 2: The rubber strap can also follow the trend line
    At present, the 44mm ROO chronograph on the line is mainly equipped with a rubber strap (a few models use crocodile leather straps), but the color of the rubber strap is probably black and white. The 44mm ROO chronograph is different. After 2018, Audemars Piguet has continued the topic of camouflage straps. The combination of blue camouflage and blue ceramic rings contrasts the personality of green camouflage jungle, showing a different masculine taste. Combined with the offshore type, which originally emphasized the rough and bold style, with the case of camouflage rubber bands like this, it also allowed Audemars Piguet’s watches to penetrate the younger ethnic group.

    3126/3840 chronograph movement, 100 meters waterproof specifications, these are common specifications of ROO chronograph, but from the design of the automatic disk can be seen that it is different from the 42mm style

    Feature three: the movement echoes the personality of the sports watch
    The 3126/3840 movement on the watch is formed after Audemars Piguet’s 3120 movement plus a timing module. It has a small dial with three eyes on the left. Although it is not a novel design, it is a bit special because The small second dial is located at 12 o’clock, which is different from the fixed position of the small second dial that we generally see in the left three-eye design. The 44mm version of the automatic disc has cutouts on both sides, and only the word ‘AP’ is engraved in the middle. The surface of the automatic disc is also black-plated. In contrast, the 42mm automatic disc is solid and exposed in K gold. Decorative totems engraved with the emblem of Audemars Piguet, in terms of visual perception, the 44mm has a sports watch fu.

    Royal Oak Offshore Self-winding Chronograph

    Stainless steel material / 3126/3840 automatic winding movement / hours, minutes, small seconds, date display / chronograph function / sapphire crystal, transparent bottom cover / waterproof 100 meters / table diameter 44mm / reference price: 228,000 RMB– –
