Originally, I have expressed my suggestions on this topic in previous articles, but sometimes the amount of information is too large, and the focus will be overwhelmed, just recently because of ‘How should Rolex buy after price adjustment? ‘The article knows a little fire, welcomes many new readers, and brings urgent and representative problems. The rabbit just caught it and shared it with everyone. Many readers cried with me: ‘You’re too expensive to follow Bunny! But it’s really fun to buy …’ In fact, as a leading blogger, I share what I really like, so I do n’t have much information. Paying tuition fees, but this does not mean saving money. Sometimes when you spend more money now, you can buy at least ten years of satisfaction. Yesterday, someone thanked me: ‘I read Bunny’s article and benefited a lot and finally suppressed the urge to spend 160,000 to buy Panda Di.’ Sometimes when I give up rationally, I will find that the prospect is suddenly bright. A few days ago, a boy asked me in the background: ‘Boss Rabbit, how is the engineer of IWC? Compared with Octo of Bulgari?’ The engineer is a veteran, and Octo is more like a black horse in recent years. If I give the answer directly, it must be irresponsible and not a simple ‘just like it’ can be solved. There are various factors behind this, including motivation, preferences, and expectations for the future, which need to be discovered. So after my in-depth inquiry, he told me to fully consider: ‘I like the design of Master Zunda, such as Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Patek Philippe Nautilus, but the high school third party cannot afford it, so I want to see the engineers of IWC.’ It is a ‘next best’ choice. When the goal cannot be achieved in the short term, many people will buy transition products first, but this is not a rational way of thinking. I asked him, if I had a budget in a few years, would I still buy Royal Oak and Nautilus? Will the engineer wear it then? He fell into silence and said, ‘I understand what you mean.’ The cost of the next best thing is that it will soon be replaced. In fact, as far as IWC is concerned, similar to this year’s bronze pilot is a more viable option, but for people who buy the first watch in life, bronze is a very bold choice, and many people can’t get out of this step. . This is what I have been saying all the time. People may understand the meaning of mindset and experience for consumption. Many things can only be seen when you look back. I even think that children who have graduated from high school do not have to buy watches. Watches are not a necessity. ‘Buy well’ is more important than ‘hard buy.’ Many times, we can learn to wait and start at the right opportunity, which is very fulfilling. There is one more truth about whether the watch bought will be replaced. In the past two days, a group of friends asked for help: ‘Panerei and Omega New Seahors 300 (of course he refers to a comparison of similar price), which one should I choose?’ I randomly selected Panerai 1359 and Omega New Seahorse 300 Qunli was very lively and suddenly split into two genres, but most people answered this question out of their own preferences and did not know the questioner’s needs on purpose. Strictly speaking, the new Haima 300 has a high value and excellent technology. I recommend it when it is released. If you buy a watch that you want to wear safely for at least 10 years and you have no further plans for the future, it is very reliable. But if you foresee that you will continue to buy in the near future, then I personally think that Panerai is a suitable choice (provided that you are comfortable and like it). Because the former is easily replaced by consumption upgrades, the latter wins with style, and style is easier to survive. Omega has special limited edition supercars or retro models worthy of winning these two years, these watches often have stronger vitality. In fact, as far as Omega is concerned, I have changed my inertia over the years. I remember playing in Cologne, Germany in 2011. I even went into an Omega store and saw two Chinese girls looking at my watch. Hesitant, I quietly proposed: ‘Ladymatic, there are too many people buying constellations.’ ‘To buy ‘Too many people’ as a reason exposed my state of mind and stage at the time (I believe many people still do today). If I let me choose today, I prefer constellations-what others should buy should not be the reason we choose or give up. Everyone ca n’t escape the tuition, but I can barely say that buying a watch is basically a waste of money, the reason is simple, because I had a lot of pain in buying clothes and bags. Many), and consumption itself is common reference. For example, at the time of the BV fire, I bought a green discount model at Woodbury Outlet in New York, which also cost more than 10,000 yuan. Today it looks extremely disgusting-it is too ugly to be seen directly. Because I was chasing the BV logo (weaving features at a glance) at that time, but buying the favorite regular-priced items was too expensive. I could only choose one from the shorts, and it turned out that the money was smashed. For example, the first bag of my life was a white snakeskin bag from Gucci. I went out on my bike obliquely, and the bag was stained with denim blue, which could not be washed. Think of someone who asked me recently how did you buy a Chanel PVC bag (meaning cheap)? Because it is easy to match and take care of. In fact, all the rare leather bags I bought in the early years (without Hermès) are now lying with dust-they are not only unrealizable, they have zero use value. For example, I bought more than 2,000 yuan of silk pants, and it did n’t take long to ride out of the door, and the pants were broken (by the way, I realized that cycling is really expensive, so I changed to walk later …) Let’s compare it when you buy a watch Do you have similar experiences? Buying for some purpose, or many choices that look smart today, may not be the most worthwhile in the long run. Buying a watch only needs to consider the issue of value preservation at the collector level. Most of us are consumers. As far as consumer goods are concerned, as long as they do n’t sell, it’s not as important to discuss value as those houses that do n’t sell. Except for people, this group is also a niche). A few days ago, a reader asked me, ‘How can I buy a watch with a budget of 250,000 yuan? I hope to be a popular sports model.’ First of all, no nautilus can be bought. Secondly, Rolex has arrived at Jindi, for example, the hottest green-faced Jindi is close to 260,000. Third, Royal Oak is not easy to buy, but there are more options. The most explosive green face Jindi and Royal Oak 26331 blue face finally, he was tangled in the material: ‘After all, 250,000 yuan, buying a steel watch feels a loss, buying Jindi feels dazzling …’ In my personal opinion, Both of these options are possible, and the best way to do this is to let the ‘inner like’ take the lead and the material can be ignored. One reason: like it. Time will show that you can only use it the longest if you like it.) The second method considers long-term needs. For example, I asked him if he plans to buy a gold watch in the future? He said that there must be a Rolex DD (day calendar type, gold watch) graduate. In fact, the answer is clear here-the Royal Oak in steel may be more suitable for his current choice. After telling a lot of reader stories, I finally summarize my experience for your reference. 1. Anyone who succumbs to the second will regret it. If you can’t achieve it temporarily, take some time. Good things are worth waiting for. 2. Reduce repetitive consumption, get rid of the ‘practical cost-effectiveness’ view at the appropriate time, and let your consumption advance. Many watches don’t look bad for each piece, but once combined in one’s collection, it becomes superfluous. 3. It is also the most important. On the premise of grasping the general direction, pay more attention to your inner preferences. There are many good watches in the world that can make money, but ‘like’ is really a fate. Finally, it is also my experience. When you buy a watch, you can be bold. Imagine that you hope to achieve the goal in one year. Jump over other savings to realize it, and then go back and buy those watches below this price. You will see more clearly- Understand which watches can be discarded and which watches deserve long-term companionship. Of course, all experiences can be described, but it is difficult to be fully empathetic and the road must ultimately go on its own. But the interesting thing about life experience is experience. That is the fastest and most convenient way to grow. The gossip rabbit is only original, welcome to repost!
JAEGER-LECOULTRE has more than 100 years of history in watchmaking. You and I are not unfamiliar with the brand’s rich experience in the field of complex watchmaking, and the achievements of home-made ringing watches are particularly interesting. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Westminster Perpetual Calendar watch has been launched at the SIHH Geneva watch fair not long ago, and the brand launched the Master Grande Tradition Répétition Minutes Perpétuelle in May 2019. It is worth noting that This is the first time that Jaeger-LeCoultre has developed a self-winding perpetual calendar + three-question function combination. At the same time, it uses a hidden automatic dial design and an innovative time-keeping gong mechanism, all showing the brand’s amazing watchmaking standards.
The outstanding traditional three-question master series perpetual calendar watch has an innovative gong system, which reproduces the pleasant bell sound of an antique self-sounding pocket watch, and is equipped with a revolutionary case design, showing a timeless and modern atmosphere.
The outstanding traditional three-question master series perpetual calendar watch represents a new generation of innovative bell designs from Jaeger-LeCoultre. The watch is equipped with a 950 automatic movement, which combines the two bell qualities that were difficult for the predecessors to possess—power and beauty. In the past, watchmakers always held a pessimistic attitude about asking the table music to be loud and melodious. They thought that the two could not be achieved at the same time, and they had to make a choice. But Jaeger-LeCoultre’s R & D and innovation team produced a distinctive new gong structure, creating a bell that meets both of these qualities. The gong of the watch is different from the common minute repeater gong. It is not placed on top of overlapping coils, but has thickness and space, which is very different from traditional styles. It is unprecedented.
Automatic winding and intuitive and easy-to-read perpetual calendar window layout to enhance the wearing experience
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s unique innovative sounding design, such as the square cross section of the gong and the articulated \\ ‘Trebuchet \\’ balance hammer, can ensure the maximum strength of the gong and reduce the interference caused by the rebound of the hammer to least. As a result, well-designed sounds were born. The gong of the bass is spiral from bottom to top, but the irregular shape is one-way flow. When it vibrates, it can emit harmonious overtones, making the bass full and balanced. While the treble will change direction when the treble, the main body can be folded, such as the bifurcation part of the tuning fork. This design emphasizes the vibration of the reed body, creating a more pure tone, giving a crisp tone to the high notes.
The 950 movement frees up the most space to enhance sound transmission. In addition, the gong is closer to the case, which further strengthens the conduction ability, because according to acoustic principles, people tend to place weaker sound sources directly near the resonance body, such as placing personal music players on glass plates to achieve the effect of sound reinforcement.
The perpetual calendar function of this watch is also very practical. The perpetual calendar can display the correct almanac information, distinguish the months with different days, and even the leap year, which is suitable for daily use by the wearer. The dial window near the hour and minute hands of the faceplate is equipped with an intuitive safety zone based on the needs of the wearer. This area is displayed between 10 pm and 1 am-during this time, the time or calendar cannot be adjusted, otherwise it may squeeze the movement or cause damage. This reminder allows the wearer not to worry about adjusting the time and the time period displayed on the calendar.
Compared to the gorgeous feel of the blue translucent enamel faceplate, the silver grain pattern has a neoclassical style, which looks delicate and timeless. The blue gongs around the faceplate also indirectly form a makeup effect.
Not only functional watches show coordinated power and beauty, the case has been completely redesigned and consists of 80 independent hand-finished parts. Jaeger-LeCoultre pays special attention to the ergonomic design of the case, which can be seen in the protruding convex bezel, the wide beveled edges on the lugs, and even the minute repeating minute slide buttons with smooth lines and gradually narrowing. Parts are also carefully polished, alternately polished, satin-finished, or sandblasted.
It is particularly difficult to apply sandblasting to the outside of the watch. Jaeger-LeCoultre uses traditional modification techniques, and the brand’s rare craft workshop has mastered superb technology, so that the sandblasted surface has both beauty and protection.
The watch is equipped with two dials, including a neoclassical silver grained dial and a dark blue translucent guilloché enamel dial hand-crafted in a rare craft workshop. The enamel will be polished to create a glittering blue faceplate like glass, showing different beauty with light and angle.
With this complicated combination and the movement picture exposed on the case back, we may intuitively think that it is a bracelet style. In fact, the automatic dial of the watch is sandwiched between the perpetual calendar and the minute repeater mechanism, so from the case back It seems that I can’t see the automatic disk, but I can clearly appreciate the complex structure and delicate decoration of the 950 movement.

Cindy Crawford has been in the Omega OMEGA family since 1995 and is the brand’s most senior image ambassador. OMEGA was originally because Cindy’s unique fashion charm and style could fully convey the spirit of OMEGA women’s watches, but after cooperating, I found that Cindy and OMEGA have the same values: they are committed to the pursuit of beauty, quality and reliability, and pay great attention to tradition. Cindy Crawford is passionate about everything about Omega, and not only participates in brand advertising, but also actively participates in product design and activities.
Stephen Urquhart, President of OMEGA, said: ‘We have been working with Cindy for 20 years. In such a long-term relationship, Cindy not only retains the enthusiasm of OMEGA and her at that time, but it is incredible that Cindy is as beautiful as ever. .Cindy has made some outstanding contributions to OMEGA over the years and helped build the brand’s fashion credentials. She is really a family and we are honored to work with her. ‘
At the same time, Cindy Crawford also expressed her feelings: ‘This is an incredible journey. It has been two decades! When I started working with OMEGA in 1995, the company was already a well-known watch brand. They were founded in In the middle of the 19th century, models were famous for their typical ‘men’s exclusive’ sports watches and diving watches. In addition, the well-known space plan and all moon landing missions made OMEGA even more popular. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to participate in the design of horoscope watches from the beginning. In addition to professional technical achievements, OMEGA now makes it a leading watchmaking brand. I am very proud to be a part of such a brand. ‘
Looking back on the past
In the past 20 years, OMEGA and Cindy have experienced a memorable event together. From 1997, when she witnessed the kick-off of the first OMEGA Golf Celebrity Championships held at Crans Montana Golf Course with other celebrities, followed by celebrating OMEGA in India in 1998. On the 150th anniversary of the birth, Cindy demonstrated the traditional Thai elephant riding ceremony at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in New Delhi. In 2010, she visited Vancouver and Whistler, the host cities during the Winter Olympics, and was with OMEGA President Stephen Urquhart in A photo was taken in the snowmobile for this special moment. Of course, these are just some of the wonderful moments in the long and unique years of cooperation between OMEGA and this supermodel and business woman.

Cindy was inspired from a young age to invest time and energy to make the world a better place. This humanitarian care is reflected in her participation in various organizations dedicated to the health of children, including the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, the University of Wisconsin Foundation, and the Little Star Foundation. She also naturally continued this long-standing charitable cause, and since 2014 she has represented OMEGA in her passion for international Orbis activities.

The ocean, the birthplace of life, is vast and gorgeous. Its mystery and vastness can always evoke people’s desire to explore and conquer. It also gives watchmakers ample inspiration and writes a legend of diving watches that spans the century.
First water: Cartier’s first waterproof watch
When the wristwatch was just born in the early 20th century, wearing the watch to dive into the sea was just a dream. At that time, the first difficult problem to be solved was how to prevent the watch from water vapor in daily wear. For centuries, how to protect watches from external factors (apart from dust, water and moisture can penetrate the internal mechanism through the case back, the edge of the mirror and the crown) has always plagued the watch industry. It wasn’t until 1926 that Hans Wilsdorf invented and patented the waterproof case, which completely solved the problem. However, due to the difficulty of sealing the angle, achieving the waterproof performance of the square or rectangular case was considered an impossible task at the time. In 1931, Cartier launched the first waterproof watch Tank Étanche, becoming one of the first brands to make true waterproof watches in history. In a public display, the Tank Étanche watch was immersed in a glass container filled with water, which caused a sensation at the time.
Dive into the deep sea: Calibre de Cartier
With the progress of the times, mankind’s exploration of the ocean is also stepping deeper. Today, the world record for unlimited diving is 214 meters, while the world record for rebreather diving is 330 meters. Therefore, ‘300 meters’ has also become the standard depth requirement for diving watches. The Calibre de Cartier diving watch, newly launched in 2014, is water-resistant to 300 meters. With its rigid lines, solid case, and unique structure, it perfectly demonstrates Cartier’s style and meets ISO 6425’s diving requirements. The technical standards of watches have created a new era of ‘diving watches’.
Water-resistant to 300 meters, unidirectional rotating bezel, superluminova hands and hour markers, the new Calibre de Cartier diving watch meets all international standards for diving watches, so it can be engraved on the case back ‘Diver’s watch 300 m’ ( Dive watch 300m). At the same time, its case thickness is only 11 mm, which not only achieves the balance of size proportions, but also maintains the comfort of daily wear. It is one of the thinnest diving watches on the market today. The dial uses distinctive Roman numerals and flanged bezels to reinterpret Cartier’s classic design elements in a masculine and resolute style.
The rotating bezel of this watch is coated with ADLC carbon coating (amorphous diamond-like carbon coating), an innovative material with excellent abrasion resistance, corrosion resistance and scratch resistance similar to diamond. The delicate contrast between frosting and polishing inherits the bloodline of the Calibre de Cartier watch. To prevent accidental rotation or improper operation, the bezel of the Calibre de Cartier dive watch can only be rotated in one direction. Its 120-slot design (40 teeth and 3 points) allows the adjustment accuracy to be accurate to half a minute, and a clear voice prompt can be heard when rotating.
When diving, the watch is subjected to extreme stress and extreme external environments (salt water, thermal shock, etc.). In response to these extreme tests, the Calibre de Cartier dive watch is equipped with thickened mirrors, oversized washers, screw-in casebacks and crowns, ensuring water resistance up to 300 meters. To further improve readability, the new timepieces clearly mark every 5 minute intervals with time stamps. Even in the dark, the time can be clearly displayed and read with the superluminova-coated diving time control indicator (hour and minute hands, presets and small seconds dial).
In order to ensure excellent and stable chronological performance, the Calibre de Cartier dive watch is equipped with the 1904 MC movement. The 1904 MC movement, born in 2010, is the first self-winding mechanical movement independently developed, manufactured and assembled by the watchmakers at Cartier Watch Workshop. Cartier integrates many years of watchmaking craftsmanship and brand essence into the 1904 MC movement, making it a combination of technicality and aesthetics, becoming synonymous with precision, solidity and reliability.
