Special Grid Disc Brief Comment On Breguet Classic Series Watch

Breguet is a watch brand with noble bloodlines and a legendary watch brand. Its glorious history is enough to ensure its status in the watch industry. It is its most important series. Today, Watch House brings you a brief review of a Breguet classic series watch, with a hand-engraved new grid ‘ArtDéco’. The official model of the watch is: 5967BA / 11 / 9W6.

Why ARTDECO? The World Art Deco and Industrial Fair in France in 1925 revealed the shaping of the Art Deco style (ARTDECO) and swept the world ever since. The reason why this artistic style was popular at the time was that its eclecticism made it possible for mass production. It is not like the Bauhaus art of the same period, which emphasized functionality and completely abandoned decoration, but advocated the organic combination of decoration and function. The production of this artistic style is not only the product of human culture, but also the carrying of human spirit and thought.

 

In recent years, the Art Deco style has been resurrected globally, showing a rising momentum. Different from the demand for mass production in that era, ARTDECO now uses its compatible and tolerant vision and flexible and free creative methods to make the design a great space. As long as it is an element that can be used as a decoration, no matter what style it belongs to, it can be used in ARTDECO’s works. In the context of blending multiple cultures and multiple artistic ideas, our love for ARTDECO stems from our pursuit of aesthetic values, which actually reflects our praise for beauty and active love for modern life from another angle. .

 

The tide is always reincarnation every few decades. The growth of all artistic styles is constantly being full in the process of being used continuously, after the reflection of generations of designers. When Art Deco style became popular all over the world again, watch designers also drew a new chapter of ARTDECO on the drawings, and appeared in front of people with a new attitude integrating modern aesthetics. When designers’ attention rises to people’s mental feelings, ARTDECO becomes an excellent language.

 

This watch is made of 18K yellow gold, 41mm diameter design, silver plated 18K gold dial, hand-engraved new grid ‘ArtDéco’ decoration, classic Breguet blue steel hands, with Roman scale dial, read Clear and convenient.

 

The watch has many characteristics of the Breguet brand, the coin decoration on the side, and the design of the straight lugs, which explain the noble Breguet descent flowing through the watch. The thickness of this watch is 6.95 mm, which is still comfortable .

 

The infinite charm of ARTDECO watches lies in the best use of decorative arts. And this style has strong characteristics. The creative freedom brought by Art Deco design makes the starting point of this style of watch more than any other popular product design style. ARTDECO watches were mainly represented by more mechanical, geometric, purely decorative lines in the early days. Nowadays, they are more like a diversified way of thinking, compatible with luxury, elegance, and modernity, combining complex but very rhythmic visual impact. This self-contained, independent modeling language with its own connotation has a strong characteristic of being more appreciative. In the design of the shape, more attention is paid to the texture and gloss of the materials, and geometric shapes or pattern decoration are used for decoration. The use of strong solid colors and metallic colors is emphasized to create gorgeous visual impressions. The strong decorativeness based on the form of lines embodied by ARTDECO, in principle, makes flexible use of aesthetic principles such as repetition, symmetry, and gradation to make geometric shapes full of poetry and decoration. This method of creation is the process of giving meaning to the body and the process of injecting your own ideas into the design.

 

The watch is designed with a sapphire crystal glass bottom. The cal. 506.2 manual winding movement is equipped inside. The manual movement can provide a power reserve of 40 hours.

 
Summary: The new grid ‘ArtDéco’ decorative design of the dial adds a lot of color to the watch. At present, the price of this watch in domestic Henry is 139,100 yuan, and it also has a platinum version to choose from. Go to the store for more details

Following the 2017 Octo Finissimo automatic wristwatch and bracelet skeletonized tourbillon that won the Best Men’s Watch and Best Tourbillon award at the Geneva Watch Awards, the series has not stopped moving forward in 2018. With the advent of the flywheel automatic watch, the Octo Finissimo carbon thin-layer minute watch with technology material has appeared. The appearance of this paragraph is completely new. What’s more special is that Bulgari developed a special material called Carbon Thin Ply (CTP) for this purpose, which is applied to the case, face plate and bottom cover of the Octo Finissimo minute repeater. Only the crown is made of DLC titanium.

Extreme use of movement space

The centrifugal governor of the chronograph system in the BVL 362 movement is only equipped with two balance weights. The chronograph start device is not a traditional lever type, but a push-button device to start.
The CTP material is not only lighter, but also has excellent acoustic characteristics. In conjunction with the internal and external structural design of the watch, which is good for sound transmission, it has the loudest timekeeping effect of the watch, and an ultra-slim appearance with a thickness of 6.85mm. . The weight of the entire watch is only 47g, light and unimaginable, which also breaks the world’s traditional impression of asking for a watch.

Buy Your Favorite Watch, Don’t Worry Too Much About Other

Some players who are new to the world of watches are often tangled by brand, value preservation, face and other issues when buying watches, so they are indecisive, or miss their own watch. So what I want to say today is that when buying a watch, you can buy what you like, and don’t worry too much about additional issues. Below I will talk about one by one, the brand, value preservation and face issues involved.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Tourbillon
Don’t worry too much about buying a watch.
 When I first came into contact with watches, I wanted to buy ‘higher’ and ‘top-level’ brands so that I could overwhelm other watches. Man inevitably admires vanity, understandably. At that time, the internet was underdeveloped, and watch information was still relied on watch magazines. The ‘Top Ten Famous Watches’ proposed by Hong Kong’s ‘Famous Watch Forum’ magazine had a great influence at the time (I still have that issue of that issue). The easiest way to buy a watch is to buy these 10 brands, and do not buy anything other than 10 brands.

Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar 5270
 Later, with the development of the Internet, more and more famous watches were recognized, and more and more famous watches entered the country. The so-called watch rankings have disappeared and have no meaning. Let me give some examples (more typical) such as:
 The starting price is more than 100,000: Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Piguet, Lange, Breguet, etc.
 Public prices start at tens of thousands: Rolex, Omega, IWC, Panerai, Cartier, Hublot, Zenith, and so on.
 The starting price of the public price is mainly in the tens of thousands: Longines, radar, Mido and so on.

Longines Single Button Chronograph
 In a similar positioning and price range, the difference between brands is not a question of who is higher or lower, the difference is just the style and style of each watch. In addition, taking Jaeger-LeCoultre as an example, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s public price is more than 40,000, and there is a junior master of Jaeger-LeCoultre. The price is 300,000 with Jaeger-LeCoultre wings. There are three questions from Jaeger-LeCoultre for the public price of one million. It can be seen that the price span under a famous watch brand is very large, exceeding the price span of auto brands. Mainstream watch brands, each brand has a lower public price table, but also a relatively high public price table. There is a lot of price overlap between various watch brands. In the past, in the context of information occlusion, selecting tables based on so-called brand heights and rankings is no longer suitable for the present. If you fancy a watch, it looks good, but it is not necessary to worry about the so-called brand height of one, two or three (especially in the same level).
Buying a watch doesn’t need to think too much about maintaining value.
 First of all, let me be honest, if you are a business, a watch can make money. For example, if you buy a watch at a very low discount and then sell it at a higher price, you make money. However, it should be noted that this watch cannot be torn off, worn, or played. Because once you play yourself, it’s like dropping new shoes to the ground, the value immediately drops, in other words, you lose.

 So if you do business, then make good business and make money. If you buy a watch for wearing and playing, then you don’t need to pay too much attention to the issue of value preservation. Because except for a few hot watches, most other watches, once started, will increase in value and decline with the increase in years and wear. Some drops are a little more, some are a little less, the discount range between the mainstream watches in the market is generally not much different (excluding the unpopular and niche brands with great discount). If you want to maintain value, then you can only buy a few hot watches, other watches can not touch, so completely lost the fun of playing watches. I understand very well, all players who have been in contact with the watch for a period of time will know more or less the watch’s market and value preservation. From the perspective of buying a watch you like to make yourself happy, don’t pay too much attention to the issue of value preservation, so as not to lose fun.

Finally, the question of face.
 Watches and luxury goods are designed to meet people’s ‘show off’ needs. I slowly downplayed other hobbies and started to become interested in famous watches because I first felt that wearing famous watches was very face-saving and bullish. But as more and more watches were bought, my heart changed, and I began to understand why some people said that famous watches are very personal things, mainly for their own appreciation.

IWC Flying Perpetual Calendar
 Watches with a public price of tens of thousands to 200,000 are the choice of a large number of people. Most of the watches worn by most people are similar in price range and grade. Someone has put forward an interesting point. If you want to widen the gap, you can directly buy watches with a public price of more than 300,000. I think this view makes some sense, but think about it and find that watches with more than 300,000 have opened a gap in watches. Then, do you want to buy more than 3 million cars, more than 30 million houses, and pull on cars and houses Open the gap?
 I now feel that as long as I am happy to buy a watch. No one can see the watch you are wearing when you drive out of the car; passers-by will not run over to watch your watch while walking on the street; when you arrive at the company, you are all familiar people and you are accustomed to wearing any watch. What I admire most is self-satisfaction.

Vacheron Constantin Dual Core Perpetual Calendar
 The ‘chain of contempt’ on the Internet is everywhere, often seeing Panamera as a luxury car? Will the Mercedes S be looked down upon? Does opening C mean that you have no money? And so on. The internet environment is fickle. If you always compare with others, you can never finish it. So buy a watch and buy what you like, don’t worry too much about the others, just be happy if you are happy.
