Four years later, 1,000 large pilot watches manufactured in accordance with the watch watch standard came out, with a diameter of 55 mm, making it the largest watch ever made by IWC. Luminous hands and digital hour markers are embedded on the black dial, which can be read clearly in the dark; an extended strap with double-loop buckle can be worn outside the flight suit.

Curly High And Widowed – 2013sihh Daily Table Recommendation

A lot of time before the home of watches introduced the most expensive, dazzling, and most complicated watches released by SIHH this year. Although these watches have made everyone visually satisfied, but when we When I was quiet, I found that those top-level works belong to very few people, so we recommend today a few daily watches launched by top brands that shine on SIHH. Sometimes the height is not necessarily low. .
 For a long time, formal watches are not only synonymous with classic minimalist watches, but also a symbol of the design skills of major brands. But nowadays, the concept of ‘formal watch’ has been so tarnished and ambiguous. The original simple concept makes it difficult for us to express it in one sentence. So what exactly is a formal watch? Formal watches are exactly what the name implies: they are watches that are worn with formal wear. Formal watches can be divided into formal tables and daily work tables. What we are going to talk about today is the daily work table (referred to as daily table). What kind of formal watch is considered a daily watch?
 As a daily watch, it should have the following characteristics: First, it must have a movement that is accurate, stable and excellent in performance to ensure the accuracy of the watch.
 Second, it is best to use a non-precious metal case. Of course, with the continuous emergence of new materials, in addition to stainless steel, titanium, ceramic, rubber and other materials are also good choices. Because in the daily work, our watch will inevitably have some bumps. Because the gold case is much softer than other material cases, it will easily leave scratches on the case, making the gold watch very ugly. Other materials are not so obvious.
 Thirdly, it is best to wind the watch automatically. I believe that busy office workers rarely get up every day to experience the thrill of winding the watch.
 Fourth, it is best to have a power reserve of more than two days, so that we can rest on six days. When this watch is not worn, there is no need to readjust the time on Monday. If the watch does not have a power reserve of more than two days, it is best to choose a watch with an energy display function.
 Fifth, the function can neither be single nor complicated. If a watch only has a timepiece function, it is obviously not practical, and at least it must have a calendar. But if you add the complex functions of tourbillon, perpetual calendar, and stopwatch, they are flashy, so as a daily watch, there are at most four functions sufficient: ordinary timepiece, calendar (preferably large calendar), energy display and Two places.
 Sixth, a leather strap is best, because a leather strap is softer and lighter than a metal strap, it will be more comfortable in daily wear, and it will not burden the wrist. We do n’t even feel its presence, and the leather strap matches a suit , Will also make men appear more elegant. At this time, some people can’t help but ask, what to do in summer when sweating corrodes the leather surface. Nowadays, with the diversification of lifestyles, rubber and canvas are good choices.
 Seventh, the size of the daily watch varies from person to person, but it should not be so large that the entire case is filled with your wrist. It is best to see the strap parts at both ends of the case when your hand is facing up, exposing 1 To 1.5cm.
 Eighth, there is a general waterproof function. Let’s take a look at which watches on this year’s SIHH roughly meet these eight standards.

Watch name: Baume & Mercier Clifton M0A10057
Movement model: Dubois Dépraz 9000 automatic movement
Case material: stainless steel
Strap Material: Crocodile Leather
Case diameter: 43 mm
Watch functions: moon phase display; day of the week display; month display; date displayed by the central hand; 42 hours of power reserve
Waterproof function: about 50 meters
Domestic public price: ¥ 32,900
A brief review of the watch: This watch not only meets the eight criteria I mentioned earlier, but also adds the moon phase function, which is an unexpected surprise. With the development of the times, the size of the formal watch is also changing, so Baume and Mercier expanded the case size to 43 mm in time. It is said that this size is already large, but it is not obtrusive after wearing it, and it is very comfortable. I really have to admire Director Pan’s design skills!

Watch name: IWC Ingenieur (engineer) series dual time zone titanium watch IW326403
Movement model: 35720 automatic winding movement
Case material: titanium
Strap material: black rubber
Case diameter: 45 mm
Watch functions: Adjust the hour hand in hours; 24-hour time display; 42-hour power reserve
Waterproof function: about 120 meters
Domestic public price: unknown
A brief review of watches: When Vacheron Constantin launched the leather strap horizontally and horizontally a few years ago, I said that the trend of sports watch dressing came, and I personally strongly respect this trend because everyone wants to spend less. More work, so when I saw this watch this year, I said that this is what I want. The movement is stable, the structure is sturdy, it can work and move, and there is a practical dual time zone (the gospel of flying people in the sky). The key is that this watch is really light. In this age of increasing outfits, weight control is really very important.

Watch name: Montblanc Timewalker series UTC World Standard Time watch 109137
Movement model: Calibre MB 4810/405 automatic winding movement
Case material: stainless steel case with titanium bezel
Strap material: black embossed calfskin orange stitching strap
Case diameter: 42 mm
Watch functions: 24-hour circle on the edge of the dial with day and night display; second time zone display; calendar display; 42-hour power reserve
Waterproof function: about 30 meters
Domestic public price: 27,500
A brief review of the watch: We know that as a dual time zone watch, the most important thing is to be able to adjust it quickly, and this watch only needs to pull the crown outward for a period, and the hour hand in the second time zone can be adjusted separately. The adjustment is advanced one hour at a time, and the second time zone hand is painted in eye-catching red, which is a humane design, while the red stitching on the strap allows you to maintain your unique personality while being elegant.

Watch name: Panerai Luminor 1950 series bronze diving watch PAM00507
Movement model: P.9002 automatic winding movement
Case material: Frosted bronze

Case diameter: 47 mm
Watch functions: calendar display; power reserve display; counterclockwise unidirectional rotating bezel to calculate dive time
Number of watches: 1000
Waterproof function: about 300 meters
Domestic public price: unknown
A brief comment on watches: Some people can’t help but ask Panerai to make daily watches is too big, let alone 47mm. But as I said before, the case size varies from person to person, and someone will definitely be suitable for large watches, and its function is in line with standards. Of course, there is a more important reason why I recommend it as a daily watch. This is a watch that you must wear every day, because only if you wear it every day, you can form another green on your bronze case as soon as possible. Patina.

Watch name: Ralph Lauren Sporting World Time Watch
Movement model: RL939 automatic winding movement
Case material: matte steel
Strap material: cobalt blue alligator leather strap
Case diameter: 45 mm
Watch functions: calendar display; world time display; second time zone display; power reserve display
Number of watches: 1000
Waterproof function: about 100 meters
Domestic public price: unknown
A brief comment on the watch: Lav Lauren can be regarded as a newcomer in the watch industry, but we can see from this watch that Lav Lauren’s infinite love for hunting, sailing and equestrian. The blue strap with the same color dial, plus comprehensive features and a low-key brand will definitely make you different.
