Trend Six: Traditional brands love sports watches
In this era of rejuvenating the economy by football and advancing diplomacy by sports, the popularity of sports watches also seems to be inevitable. No brand can stay aside, including those with their own historical and cultural traditions and product design DNA.
If Hedi Slimane, the former design director of Dior Homme, joined Nike to design sportswear for him, the number of viewers must be uncountable. The same is true for traditional watchmaking brands and sports watch brands for traditional style watches, because their stable image has long been ingrained in people’s hearts, and the sports watches they have introduced will be more or less paid special attention to. Attitude also seems more cautious.
Fortunately, all of them are menacing, and their appearance and functional performance are also remarkable. It’s like the Super Trofeo racing watch launched by Blancpain and Lamborghini. Ralph Lauren’s 2012 sports watch collection has both an elegant elm dial and a rough ceramic case canvas strap. The Jacques Dro Sport (SW) series combines the elements of the brand’s classic 8-character dial, while being bold and bold with a touch of elegance. Even brands like Hermès, who do not forget the elegant attitude at all times, are also reluctant to give up the sports watch market easily. The diving watch introduced is like a decent watch, and it will never reveal its Sven’s strength as a formal watch.
Zenith, known for its high-frequency movements, has also set its sights on the field of flight in recent years, introducing a number of flight watches. This includes not only Zenith’s strength chronometer, but also inspiration and materials from history. Zenith takes the engraved pilot watches as a reminder of the past, and commemorates and inherits the brand’s cultural foothold. Although the style is not complicated, the historical charm contained in it is quite fascinating. Trend VII: Humanization of Sports Spirit
The popularity of sports watches can not only be explained from the perspective of biology and engineering, it also meets the spiritual needs of people. Technology and functions can be outdated, and entertainment stars can be outdated, but the spirit of sports is eternal, and the older and more fragrant, American boxer Ali, trapeze ‘Jordan’, China’s ‘gymnastic prince’ Li Ning, ‘ The national idol ‘Zhuang Zedong is the best example.
As more and more athletes endorse watch brands, in the field of watches, the sporting spirit conveyed by sports watches therefore seems less rigid and more humane. These athletes are the best interpretation of the spirit of sports that is brave and daring to compete in the arena. Now outside the arena, they cooperate with watch brands that match their sports style. Through this cooperation, this sports spirit is passed on to more People. Today, many internationally renowned athletes are the face of watch brands, including tennis girl Sharapova, the national professional basketball league NBA star LeBron James, ‘flying fish’ Michael Phelps, and so on. The reason why watch brands choose athletes as spokespersons is that, compared with film and television stars, athletes are elegant and stylish. They have won praise and recognition from unremitting efforts, and have shown their talents in the most honest way. Consumer distance. In addition, exercise is a very simple matter. Inviting athletes to be endorsers has indeed brought more positive influence to the brand. Relatively speaking, the media’s focus on movie stars is more focused on gossip, and for athletes, it is focused on reports of achievements and events, so it is safer to use athletes to endorse.
In addition to signing sports stars as their spokespersons, many watch brands have also cooperated with them to launch limited edition watches, such as Hublot and the world’s first trapeze, Usain-Bolt, to launch a limited edition of the ‘King of Supreme Usain. Bolt’ For the time being, aside many of the ‘Flying Man’ elements of this watch, the material of the strap is particularly original and significant-from Usain. Bolt wore when he broke the world record at the 2008 Beijing Olympics Boots. Another Swiss watch brand, Morris Watch, has also collaborated with its spokesperson Sebastian Loeb to launch two limited edition watches in the Morpheus racing series this year. Sebastian Loeb is personally involved in the design and production of the Loeb limited edition, and is enthusiastically involved in the implementation of every detail.
Today, our lives are full of all aspects-the more we are surrounded by material, the more we will be touched by non-material emotions. Movement is this kind of national sentiment across national borders, regardless of class. It conveys a positive and healthy attitude towards life and a spirit of bravery and tenacity. It is precisely because of these factors that the watches endorsed by sports stars have more reasons for us to buy. Trend eight: professionalization of sports watch movements
The traditional sports watch gives the impression that it is nothing more than waterproof, dustproof, anti-fall and anti-wear. It seems that as long as the muscles are sufficient, it does not matter what kind of movement is installed. However, if you observe carefully, it is not difficult to find that the quality of the mechanical watch movement is now making a three-step leap: from the early quartz movement to the mechanical movement that is now almost a ‘water’; from the past rough Level, the parts seen through the sapphire caseback have been polished and modified; there are even many brands that have developed movements dedicated to sports watches, with functions ranging from the most basic three-hand calendar to timekeeping and time. Then there are tourbillons and three questions. It can be said that the specialization of sports watch movements has not only increased the consumer satisfaction index, but also stimulated the purchase desire of high-end consumers.
If you pay careful attention, it is not difficult to find that many brands have invariably incorporated better movements into this year’s new sports watches. Just like the Omega Seahorse series Ocean Universe Chronograph, it is the latest 9301 coaxial chronograph movement, which is also the first chronograph movement among its own coaxial movements.
The Breitling Aviation Chronograph Astronaut Watch also launched a new model this year after being discontinued for two years, and is equipped with the latest Breitling self-produced 02 movement. Although some people criticize the flight watch as not being a real sports watch, because it is mostly waterproof. It is also difficult to withstand collisions during sports, but compared with a formal three-hand watch or an almanac, who can not be classified as a sports model?
The Patek Philippe Nautilus series also launched a stainless steel version 5726 this year. This is also the first time to use the calendar function in this series, which shows the importance PP attaches to sports watches. Ultra-thin Altiplano watches have always been Piaget’s best-selling models. The development of the movement to complement this series of watches is also one of Piaget’s priorities. But in addition to this overseas watch, Piaget is also focusing on creating polo watches and developing special movements for them. It can be seen that sports trends occupy an important position in each brand. Trend Nine: Sports style for women’s watches
Tracing the fate of women and watches has always been traceable. At first, it was precisely because of the needs of women’s accessories that the birth of watches was born. Therefore, gorgeous and fashionable jewelry watches have always been the beauty of women’s watches in people’s impression. However, with the continuous expansion of women’s display space, women’s watch requirements are not under the diversity of men’s needs. In addition to gorgeous jewelry watches and intellectual formal watches, sports watches with full personality can better show the urban women’s Sun and vitality. Especially in the context of sports for all, watchmakers are not only thinking about the innovations and breakthroughs of men’s sports watches, but also dare not slack off in the innovation of women’s sports watches. From the Geneva International High-level Watch Salon in 2012 And the Basel International Jewellery & Watch Fair, ladies’ sports watch market, you can watch it.
The number of women’s sports watches launched this year has increased in number and style. At the same time, the design and craftsmanship also show the meticulousness and intentions of watchmakers. New materials such as ceramics and rubber have been widely used, especially ceramics, rubber, stainless steel, diamonds, gems, and other materials. On the one hand, they show sporty vitality, and on the other hand, they are unwilling to feminine elegance and fashion. In terms of function, although the ladies’ sports watch has a gorgeous outerwear, the professional performance has not been compromised, whether it is diving or timing, it is more professional. It can be seen that the ladies’ sports watches for the female consumer group have formed a unique style in the entire watch family, and found a new balance between men and women, sports and fashion.
Every woman who loves life and sports needs more than just a sports watch. This is a foreseeable situation. Since the first women and women in the Olympic Games appeared on the arena and the voice of women also wanted to exercise, the female group can no longer be rejected outside the stadium. Therefore, we can say that women are at the top, women’s sports are at the top, and women’s sports watches are also at the top. Trend ten: luxury style of sports watches
If you want to find one of the most unrelated to sports from the development trend of sports watches, it is the ‘luxury style’. It is more dominated by fashion trends rather than sports itself. I remember that two decades ago, the money for a high-end suit was enough to buy hundreds of ‘T-shirts’, but now the price of the two has reached a point that is completely disproportionate to the process. The phenomenon of upside down prices of casual leather shoes and formal leather shoes abounds, indicating that sports and leisure are the mainstream of today. In this case, it is not surprising that the overall grade of sports watches has risen all the way, and more and more watches with diamonds and complex movements have appeared.
For domestic watch enthusiasts, sports and leisure always give people a feeling of being far away, seemingly incompatible with ‘luxury’. Especially for collectors who spend hundreds of thousands and millions to buy complex watches, even tens of thousands of sports watches, even if they are made with personality and quality, they have no reason to ‘degrade.’ . And the luxury of sports watches can meet the special needs of this part of consumers-personalized appearance plus complex functions and bright gems, there is no so-called low-key one is to create the most top-level consumer experience, so that customers Can’t bear the desire to look away from the dial an inch. At the same time, as a luxury product, getting better and better, more and more sophisticated, and more and more expensive also conforms to the law of its own development. Otherwise, how can it impress the Chinese people who want to become rich?
Trend Six: Traditional brands love sports watches
Tourbillon on women’s watches is a big thing. Of course, it is difficult to make. This is undoubted, but high-level complex functions have always been the world of men’s watches. Today, women’s watches have to be made. It is bound to involve structural strategies. But since we are talking about women’s watches, maybe we can also temporarily relax our men’s political heads and simply appreciate the beauty of these models, because no matter what abacus you play behind, as long as it is a women’s watch, this is gone. Just talk about nothing.
CHANEL Premiere Flying Tourbillon
Chanel’s high-level complication table is not much at first, this tourbillon is their first flying tourbillon, but it is quite surprising that it is actually the first flying tourbillon of APRP.
CHANEL’s actions in complex functions in recent years have been much more active than in the past. The mysterious retrograde watch of J12 in 2010 and the camellia tourbillon of Premiere in 2012 are both annual models of the year; the display of the mysterious retrograde watch The method is very special, it is taken for granted to cause the topic, although it is a Camellia Tourbillon, although it is a flying tourbillon, but in the final analysis it is just a flying tourbillon. The ecology of the year will say so for its reason), but it has also caused quite a lot of discussion in the industry. The middle reason is actually worth discussing.
Chanel has maintained a cooperative relationship with APRP for a long time. The 3125 movement specially modified for Chanel and the mysterious retrograde watch not long ago are the results of two cooperations. This flying tourbillon is also specially designed by APRP for Chanel. of. Chanel’s high-level complication table was not much at first. This tourbillon is their first flying tourbillon. However, when I read the information, I found that it was actually the first flying tourbillon of APRP. Even Giulio Papi himself was against flying tourbillons. The reason for opposing flying tourbillons is that the accuracy of the front bridge tourbillon is difficult to request without the front table; Chanel’s expected accuracy here is a day difference of -2 to +8 seconds (in fact, it is already high), but Papi they hope to reach 0 ~ + 4 seconds, which has even exceeded the observatory certification. It is no wonder that they will retain the upper watch bridge with the tourbillon removed. Only this time at the request of Chanel, Papi finally decided To ‘overcome the fear of flying the tourbillon’.
Having said that, it is really good to say what special technology APRP uses in this, there are a few important ones: First, the ball bearing is fixed between the tourbillon frame and the base, on the one hand, the flying tourbillon The structural strength of the flywheel is relatively weak, and the ball bearing can increase its strength. On the other hand, this tourbillon device is quite large and requires more torque to drive. Due to the size of the watch itself, the barrel is not The method is too big, so they can only find a way to make the tourbillon with a smaller friction coefficient and higher rotation efficiency, and ball bearings are their solution.
迁 In order to adapt to the size of the barrel, they also reduced the frequency of the balance to 21,600vph, but this will sacrifice the accuracy of Papi Nitzi, so they increased the mass inertia of the balance to 11.5mg … cm2, try to make the performance of the movement meet their required level. Strictly speaking, the technology adopted by APRP here is not too rare, but the finished product and the aesthetics (especially the aesthetics) of the finished product are quite high, and I think this is also this type without reading information and no special The main reason for the agency to get unanimous praise.

18K white gold material / Manual winding movement / Hour and minute display / Tourbillon device / Body and buckle with 228 diamonds, about 7.7 carats / Silk satin strap, Folding buckle / Sapphire crystal, Screw-down bottom Cover / Reference price: NT $ 7,398,000
陀 Camellia-shaped tourbillon device
The entire tourbillon device is extremely complicated, and a small flower-shaped cover plate is stacked on the flower-shaped outer frame; the original lightweight should be a major issue for such a device, but it only uses a lighter cover plate. Of nickel, the other frames are still steel.
钻 钻 Full diamond case
The case is full of diamonds, but there is no exaggeration. The steps on the side of the Premiere series are set with two round diamonds and square diamonds. The front and side of the crown are also two different diamonds.
Tape with folding buckle
The watch uses a silk belt with a folding buckle, and a diamond is set on the buckle. There are many models with this price and a crocodile belt. This can also be optional. Incidentally, the dial of the watch is made of high-tech precision ceramics.
BVLGARI Il Giardino Tropicale Di
Bvlgari’s past women’s watch product line is either a basic model at a low price or a highly decorative jewellery watch. It emphasizes that watchmaking technology products are almost as good as this. The introduction of this tourbillon may be a reminder of the next Bulgari. The women’s watch strategy will have new developments.
We mentioned here before that BVLGARI in 2013 was the most exciting year since DR & GG was incorporated into the brand in 2010. Individual watches are certainly promising, and more importantly, the overall planning begins. It has appeared, especially the part of the female watch that shows unprecedented ambitions, such as this enamel painted tourbillon to be introduced this time, making people start looking forward to the next step of Bulgari.
This enamel-painted tourbillon is unique in many ways. First of all, it is a rare high-order complication female watch for Bulgari. According to official sources, this is the first high-order complication female watch for Bulgari. According to the author’s personal memory, I can’t think of the second one; Bulgari’s past women’s watch product line is basically sold as jewelry, not the basic models of low and medium price or highly decorative jewelry watches It is emphasized that watchmaking technology products are almost the same, let alone complicated functions. The introduction of this tourbillon may be a reminder that the Bulgari women’s watch strategy will have new developments.
The automatic tourbillon movement BVL 263 on the watch basically belongs to the Gerald Genta system in the past, but Bvlgari also has a long history of using GG movements. During this period, the movement itself also experienced many evolutions. Compared with recent products, this movement should be closest to the BVL 465 equipped with the 2009 Sotirio tourbillon perpetual calendar; of course, 465 also has a retrograde perpetual calendar mechanism, but aside from this, the automatic tourbillon part It is exactly the same. There are several obvious changes. One is that it removed the original tourbillon bridge from the front and replaced it with a transparent sapphire crystal to fix the entire device from the front to make it look like a flying tourbillon. The strength is weakened, so the back bridge is slightly thickened as a reinforcement. In addition, the decoration of the splint is much more refined than before, especially the part of the automatic plate. The round hole dug in the middle allows it to expose the tourbillon when it is placed below. It is indeed a very careful design.
On the other hand, enamel painting is also a new attempt for Bulgari; surprisingly, Bulgari has not produced any enamel painting watches, which makes this one unique in its overall positioning. The model is basically filled with colored enamel, but the interposition of diamonds is very flexible, which changes the entire faceplate; some of the techniques of painting are also quite bright, and the depth of the color between adjacent color blocks is very rich. The theme of the painting is a parrot, which is also one of the Bulgari Icons. The entire picture (even the color of the strap) is reminiscent of the print ads of their home in the past two years (especially the one by Julian Moore). Series), the aesthetic taste is quite good, even if the watch itself is a masterpiece in the recent complicated female watches.

Women’s watch tourbillon
The size of this tourbillon is actually not large. The previous models introduced only a small circle on the dial, but because this is a female watch, the diameter of the watch is only 37mm, so the tourbillon has a lot of weight on the surface.
The parrot, flowers and leaves are an independent frame, which are separated from the white background below. Most of the patterns on the frame are filled with enamel. Among them are the parts of the parrot feathers. The shades in the same color are very dark. Pretty.
Point colored gems
In addition to the diamonds on the face plate, colored gemstones are still a major focus of Bulgari. The crown of the model is set with a large red tourmaline, which has become another highlight of the model; in addition, the claw shape of the crown The base itself is also beautiful.
Mentioned that the Omega Seahorse believes that everyone will not be unfamiliar with it. The temperament and tough appearance is an excellent wrist accessory for men. This titanium marine cosmic chronograph 184.108.40.206.03.001 takes Omega’s watch technology to a new level. Let’s take a look at the charm of this watch together today.
This marine universe 220.127.116.11.03 watch uses a titanium-made case, which is as elegant as the beauty of the open sea, and can effectively prevent the watch from being corroded by seawater and rust. The sapphire crystal glass has a slight elegance in the fashion, showing noble temperament. The round blue dial sets off the low-key beauty of this watch, as if it were a ship sailing in the sea, quiet and stable. The transparent case back made of sapphire crystal makes it easy to see the beauty of the movement inside the watch. The blue leather strap is soft and protects the wrist. Finally, a pin buckle type buckle can prevent people from loosening and slipping during wearing.
The blue-based watch is stylish and deep. The case made of titanium also makes it stronger and more durable. The combination of the mirror and dial also highlights the theme of the universe and oceans. This is also blue The first matching use of ceramics and titanium alloys has epoch-making significance in the innovation of watch appearance.
As a professional diving watch, this marine universe 18.104.22.168.03 is designed for diving. There is a window at six o’clock to display the date of the month. White Arabic numerals are particularly clear on the black background. At the 9 o’clock direction of the dial is the small seconds dial, which completes the time display function with the central hour and minute hands. This design can reduce the power transmission process in normal times and save a part of the power. The liberated central second hand can complete the timing function together with the 12-hour cumulative chronograph dial at 3 o’clock. Due to the conspicuous central seconds hand, we can also see the timing function very clearly. With the two buttons on both sides of the crown of the watch, the timekeeping function is simple and convenient, and the method is simple and easy to master. The button on the left side of the watch is the helium exhaust valve, which can help the helium to be expelled from the inside of the watch in one click. It is a very professional diving function. Finally, it has a unidirectional rotating bezel. The dial that can only be rotated clockwise can effectively avoid mis-turns. The accurate scale on the dial can easily calculate the actual time. ‘600 / 2000ft’ below the dial means that the water-resistant depth can reach 600M, that is, 2000 feet, which is very outstanding in general diving watches, and it is also a visual reflection of the excellent functions of this watch.
This watch has many functions, simple operation and very practical functions. Its hands and scales are covered with fluorescent coating. When the diver wears this watch to work at sea, the date display can be clearly seen, and the unidirectional rotating bezel can also facilitate the staff to time.
The movement of this Omega 22.214.171.124.03 is the Omega Coaxial 9300 movement. This is the first movement with a timing function in the Omega coaxial movement family. The automatic winding function allows users In the normal wearing process, the wrist can store energy for the wrist movement, as long as it is usually worn, it can save a lot of winding time. The 60-hour power reserve can meet the rest time needs of most people, allowing us to spend the weekend easily.
The coaxial 9300 self-winding movement is equipped with an ultra-long power reserve under the condition of ensuring stable and long-lasting accurate time, and it integrates the timing and date functions into the escapement and the machine to which the automatic winding belongs. The core is a complicated project. The movement is so powerful that the functionality and practicality of this watch is self-evident.
This Omega Ocean Universe 126.96.36.199.03 watch, as a professional diving watch, is full of power and vitality in its design, giving a cool feeling. At the same time, the blue color scheme as a whole has brought us the atmosphere of the ocean, and the arrow-shaped pointer design has given this watch a challenging meaning like the arrow pointing to the deep sea. Its functions are also very powerful. The design of the helium exhaust valve, the mirror and the crown has greatly improved the waterproof performance of the watch. The single-rotation dial, chronograph, date display, etc. are all highly practical functions in diving or daily life. In addition, the Omega self-produced movement with coaxial escapement design is the guarantee of the superior performance of this watch. The reference price of this watch is about 75,000 yuan, but there may be discounts in some places, but for its superior performance, even if you buy it at full price, you will not suffer at all.

SpringLOCK® seismic protection system
The hairspring is often the most fragile part of a mechanical watch, but it has a significant impact on the accuracy of the watch. For this reason, Boer has developed the world’s first revolutionary patented SpringLOCK® anti-shock protection system-when the watch is subjected to external shocks, this system can effectively reduce the impact of the hairspring by 66%. The special feature of the SpringLOCK® anti-shock protection system is that the hairspring in the movement is surrounded by a protective cover. When the watch is exposed to external shocks, it can effectively absorb shocks and limit the movement of the hairspring, thereby greatly reducing the connection between the hairspring and the balance wheel. The risk of damage also protects the hairspring itself from deformation.
