Twenty-two, the ‘Army’ showed great power
‘Snake’ is not a good horn in Chinese culture, from the repeated appearance of the snake spirit in ‘Journey to the West’ to even the insidious and cunning woman in the cartoon ‘Culuwa’ are the incarnations of snakes. The only beautiful role may be It is Bai Suzhen, an adult in ‘The Legend of the New White Lady,’ but this does not seem to change the fate of the snake.
In the West, snakes have shown a sly side from the Bible, tempting Adam and Eve to steal the fruits of the tree of ‘good and evil.’ But despite this, the image of ‘snake’ in western fashion symbols has repeatedly appeared, and of course it is essential on the wrist. In Greek mythology, snakes play an important role as a symbol of life, representing healing, death, and rebirth. The most notable example is Asclepius, which used snakes as the legal object, and the ancient Greeks regarded him as the god of medical treatment. Bulgari’s ‘snake’ seems to be the most representative. In the 20th century, many jewelers ordered the theme of ‘snake’ to reappear, and Bulgari took the lead in applying this theme to watch design. After 1940, Bulgari’s snake watch became a banner work, and ushered in a smooth journey into the field of fine watchmaking. Furthermore, the simple serpentine snake shape proves that Bulgari’s technique of stylizing natural elements is exactly the core theme of the brand in the early 1970s. In the Serpenti series, the snake-like, ancient eternal symbol is combined with the mechanical elements that symbolize progress and technology to form a unique concept and aesthetic framework. In addition to Bvlgari’s ‘snake,’ there is also a snake named Boucheron. Boucheron’s MEC Cobra watch is a favorite of many people. The designer takes the enchanting cobra as the main shape and inlays a variety of precious metals in it.
In addition to snakes, cheetah, the running ‘champion’ on land, has always been an important source of watch creativity. Cartier has a constant relationship with the cheetah, and has always played a totem-like role in Cartier’s history. Cartier’s relationship with cheetahs began in 1914. Louis Cartier (1875-1942) commissioned illustrator George Barbier to design an invitation with the theme of ‘Ladies and Cheetahs’ The card, since then, has become one of Cartier’s decorative elements in black and white leopard print, appearing on two women’s watches designed in 1914 and 1915. The Promenade d’ une Panthère cheetah decoration watch, the calm cheetah runs with time, giving this round watch the unique spirituality of felines. Fun and energy coexist, and the hero of Cartier’s animal kingdom makes the movement rotate with the oscillating rhythm of its jewelry decoration. In the watchmaking tradition, women’s complication watches have always been an outstanding embodiment of precision technology. This Cartier watch places the automatic rotor in reverse and is embellished with vivid diamond-set cheetahs.
