【comment】
Kunlun’s ‘Gold Ingot’ watch has made great achievements in recent auctions. The dial of this watch is made of 5 grams of gold ingots and bears the inscription of the Union Bank of Switzerland. With the skyrocketing price of gold today, how much does it cost to buy 5 grams of gold ingots? Not to mention this watch is still a case, a plate, with all gold.

Panerai’s ‘the Face Of Time’ Exhibition Unveiled In Singapore

The exhibition also provides a valuable opportunity for the public to discover first-hand a number of self-developed movements independently developed by the brand’s watchmaking factory in Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

 The exhibition is designed with the brand’s classic Luminor dial, and the hour markers are equipped with a super-LumiNova® luminous effect. The new Panerai watch series are based on the case names, named Radiomir, Radiomir 1940, Luminor 1950, and Luminor.

 The focus of the exhibition is that Panerai’s professional watchmakers will display excellent watchmaking skills in designated exhibition areas, allowing watch lovers to exchange and share experiences with senior craftsmen in real time.

Ruby Sings A Declaration Of Valentine’s Love Glashütte Presents A Special Limited Edition Serenade Watch

Time is relative. This is especially true when you fall in love. Time flies, as if every minute will extend to eternity. In order to let the queen of your heart enjoy every second, Glashütte Original launches a special edition watch inspired by Valentine’s Day. Serenade watches blend perfectly with sharp contrasts. Highly precise German watchmaking art and dazzling jewellery and gorgeous red embellishment are here to collide passionately, giving this elegant special edition watch an irresistible charm. This model (limited edition of 50 pieces worldwide) is glorious and glorious, it is the finishing touch of the outstanding ladies series.

Love ‘red’ makeup, like love

Fine mechanical watches usually use ruby ​​as the movement gem. This Serenade watch is set with a total of 52 brilliant rubies (representing 52 weeks of the year) around the bezel of a 36mm stainless steel case. The convex circle placed on the delicate crown structure is dazzling and contrasts with 52 ring rubies. Crimson and white natural mother-of-pearl dials contrast the beauty.

The dazzling gloss makes this organic material so fascinating. The ultra-thin dial is made of mother-of-pearl, a brittle material that requires special care when handling it. The craftsmen of Glashütte’s original own watch factory meet this challenge with exemplary skills. Each of the dial blanks is meticulously carved with three curvy Roman numerals and set with eight beautifully cut diamonds.

Smooth white gold polished hour and minute hands complement the special symbolic seconds hand. The slender pointer uses the symbol of infinity as a counterweight, low-key telling the eternal nature of true love, and writing a permanent and memorable movement for a romantic marriage proposal night. A cherry red Louisiana alligator strap completes this watch.

Heart of true love

The movement of the Serenade watch runs at 28,000 vibrations per hour. The 39-22 self-winding movement created by the brand’s watch factory is carefully crafted with superb watchmaking technology, just like all the movements created by its own watch factory in Glashütte.

Of course, the original intention of this watch cannot be ignored. The sapphire glass case back provides a panoramic view of the movement and all its subtleties, such as a three-quarter splint or gooseneck trimming mechanism. This structure has been used by watchmakers in Glashütte since 1888, along with its chic name (gooseneck trimmer). The movement of the watch is adjusted by the adjustment screw on the gooseneck trimmer, which adjusts the balance spring through the adjuster. Adjusting the position of the adjuster can change the effective length of the hairspring, thereby adjusting the travel time to obtain the maximum accuracy. The 39-22 calibre has a power reserve of 40 hours, and it is also equipped with a stop-second mechanism, allowing precise setting of time such as searching for capsules. Therefore, no matter how ‘relative’ you feel at the moment, you won’t waste every minute.

The new Serenade watch is limited to 50 pieces worldwide. It can be purchased in Glashütte original stores around the world and selected authorized dealers from January 2019.
