Hermes’ Centennial Bell Expressions – Beginning To Make Fine Watchmaking

In 1978, Jean-Louis Dumas, the fifth generation leader of Hermès, was in charge of Hermès. Hermès decided to enter the watchmaking neighborhood. For the past 50 years, Hermès has been selling products for high-end watch brands, or looking for The watch factory processed the watches for it. Until this year, the brand really entered the watch manufacturing industry. This was a risky move, because the crisis at that time was far from resolved, and the Swiss watch industry itself had fallen into a difficult situation. Of course, the benefits are also obvious. The downturn in the industry can allow Hermes to quickly enter this industry that is no longer unfamiliar to it. As a result, La Montre Hermès, headquartered in Biel, Switzerland, was born. This company’s main business is watch manufacturing, but in fact it has many registered trademarks. Dumas strengthened the company’s cooperation with suppliers, and its business scope has spread to scarves, In handbags, jewelry, silverware, crystals, etc., watches are just one of them. In 1999, the company moved to a larger and more spacious modern building not far from the original site, which could accommodate more employees.

Hermès La Montre Hermès

   La Montre Hermès is responsible for the production of watches and related components. In the same year, the Arceau series with horse stables as the design source was launched. In the 1990s, the shape of Arceau watches changed, and the ring at 6 o’clock was cancelled, forming today The look of an Arceau watch. In 1981, Hermès’s flagship series Clipper came out. Its iconic element was a porthole-style bezel. This was Hermès’ first sports-style watch series, which included functional watches such as big three hands, chronograph, GMT and It continues to this day. In 1991, another famous Hermès collection, Cape Cod, was launched for the first time (previously there are models, it is estimated that this year has been integrated into a series). Its design inspiration was from the hand of the artistic director of the ready to wear clothing series. In addition to this series of watches In addition to the distinctive design on the watch earrings, the double-circle strap has become the biggest highlight, which flaunts the watch’s strong fashion decoration effect. In 1997, the H-Hour series started with Hermès as its starting point. The H-label is very common in Hermès products, but this is the first time it appears in a watch shape. At the same time, it is bound to appear as a brand icon.

The most important watch series introduced from 1978 to 2003

   The establishment of La Montre Hermès company promoted Hermes’ watchmaking business. At the time Hermes still did not have enough technical support to fully produce its own watches, so it mainly adopted the Swiss movement manufacturers, watch cases, dials Waiting for the cooperation of watch component suppliers to launch their own watches. The brand combines design elements with distinctive DNA characteristics to combine with the traditional Swiss watchmaking industry, which is indeed a good direction for establishing the status of Hermes watch manufacturer in the early stage. At the same time, Hermès has not given up its original watch retail business, and still represents many high-end watch brands, such as Piaget.

Open the chapter of fine watchmaking
   Compared with the old Swiss high-end watchmaking brands, Hermès’s watchmaking path from 1978 to 2003 is like a little fuss. In addition to design, Hermès completely lacks the most core technology of watchmaking. Guillaume de Seynes (Executive Vice President of Hermès Group, general manager of La Montre Hermès during 1999-2004) once said in an interview with the media that Hermès may be the industry leader in leather goods, and also has a clear position in the area of ​​scarves. One of the company’s goals is for Hermès watchmaking to occupy a place with quality and a fusion of creativity and style.

Mr. Guillaume de Seynes

   In 2001, after the vicissitude of the watchmaking company Vaucher, under the vertical integration of the Santos Family Foundation, it strengthened its core movement production capacity, and was reborn in 2003, becoming a Parmigiani machine. Core supplier. In the same year, Hermès also watched and started cooperation with this newly established movement factory with strong watchmaking capabilities. The birth of Hermes’ signature cushion watch series Dressage, and the use of high-quality Vaucher automatic movements, became the first step for Hermes to start the fine watchmaking business.

Vaucher movement factory

   In 2006, Hermès invested 25 million Swiss francs to buy 25% of the Vaucher movement factory, becoming an important shareholder of the movement factory. At the same time, Hermes relocated Brugg, a leather manufacturing workshop in Paris, to Bill to manufacture straps for Hermes watches and also provide high-quality straps for Parmigiani. As a result, Hermès has a stable and reliable quality movement manufacturer, and has become a watch manufacturing brand with homemade straps. Because Hermes’ leather goods are world-renowned, this has become a highlight of Hermes watches in the field of fine watchmaking.

Joseph Erard SA case manufacturer

   Since then, Hermès has continuously introduced cherished watch dials, advanced complex watches and uniquely designed watches that combine the excellence of its own workshops. In 2009, Philippe Delhotal, a member of Patek Philippe’s creative design team, went to Hermès as the creative director, further drawing closer. The distance between Hermès and fine watchmaking. Not only that, in 2012, Hermès acquired Natéber Dial Manufacturing Co., Ltd., a dial supplier based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, which was born in 1972. At the end of 2013, it acquired the case manufacturing in Le Noirmont, Switzerland, which had begun to produce cases in 1880. Dealer Joseph Erard SA. The two companies have provided Hermes with cases and dials for 30 years. Guillaume de Seynes said that obtaining parts from third-party suppliers often slows down the completion time because they are still serving other customers. It is unbearable, but to maintain a good relationship with them in order to stabilize the supply, the best way is to buy directly.

Arceau Le Temps suspendu and Arceau Lift tourbillon watches

   In addition, Vaucher is indeed very powerful and advantageous in many aspects, but Hermes urgently needs some outstanding works to enhance its brand image and attract watch lovers to join. Therefore, Hermès chose to cooperate with independent watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht, one of the designers of the OPUS series of Harry Winston, to launch the Arceau Le Temps suspendu watch, which has won the GPHG award, and then cooperated with the Swiss Centre for Advanced Movement Research. La Joux-Perret (advantage is flying tourbillon technology) launched the complex function Arceau Lift tourbillon tourbillon watch.

Jaeger-LeCoultre

   In the history of Hermès watch development, there is a partner closely related to it, that is, today’s watch giant Jaeger-LeCoultre, has in-depth contact with Hermès since the beginning of the last century, Hermès for its retail products, Jaeger-LeCoultre provides movements for Hermès and cooperates in production Watches continued until La Montre Hermès was founded in 1978, and Hermès began to produce its own watches. Today, Jaeger-LeCoultre still has a close relationship with Hermès. In 2013, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Hermes launched a limited edition of 176 Hermes air clocks. This is the iconic precision watch type of Jaeger-LeCoultre. It has never previously cooperated with other brands to manufacture air clocks.

   Hermes is currently one of the very few brands in many luxury goods groups that is still growing steadily. According to the 2014 financial report, all major business categories of Hermès have shown negative growth only in the watch sector, which has received industry influence. All other categories have achieved growth to varying degrees. . The low proportion of watches in Hermès’ business has not allowed Hermès to abandon this sustainable development industry, but is constantly seeking breakthroughs. In the impression of consumers, luxury watches and clocks pay attention to the “roots and roots of Miao Hong”. They must have historical heritage and characteristic attributes. Hermès clocks obviously have such a basic background, and its high-end watches have not developed for more than 10 years. Suddenly began to emerge. Of course, Hermès still has a long way to go to become the core brand of Haute Horlogerie, but we might as well slowly appreciate her unique and rare watches, and feel the exotic atmosphere rare in the traditional watchmaking industry, and then Watching her grow up gradually, she needs time, we are more patience, and may usher in a new landscape.

The Price Of Watches Continues To Fall. Cartier Will Reduce The Price Of Precious Metal Blue Balloons By 4% -10% From May 2.

For a long time, the price strategy of luxury goods has been extremely cautious. However, since last year, the price of luxury watches has undergone successive adjustments. Today, Guanya Watch City announced that since May 2 , Cartier blue balloon series precious metal watches will be reduced in price, ranging from 4% to 10%. After that, the author consulted people familiar with the matter and finally confirmed that Cartier does have a plan to reduce prices, but has not yet announced the specific price reduction range and the scope of the models. , But the precious metal version of the blue balloon did adjust.

Introduction Of Piaget’s Dragon And Phoenix Watch

In this wave of ‘Happy New Year’, the earliest and most complete works are Piaget. In order to pay tribute to Chinese culture, Piaget released a series of jewelry watches with the theme of dragons and phoenixes on the eve of the Dragon, bringing together its designers, watchmakers, goldsmiths, jewelry inlayers, engravers, and enamel painters. Experts from various fields worked together to show not only the superb craftsmanship, but also the fusion of Chinese mythology and fables with Western artistic thinking, which stirred up a unique oriental beauty.
Family members on the timepiece
 The dragon and the phoenix symbolize honor and authority, and have a sacred status in Chinese culture. The earl vividly reproduced the figures of the couple of gods hovering in the sky on the square dial with the timepiece, whether it is three-dimensional metalwork inlaid, hand-carved dragon-shaped decoration, or drawn by enamel technique, All captured the charm of the charm. The dial is full of dragons and phoenixes. Every scale and feather is extremely detailed. The craftsmanship under the dial is just as wonderful. From the ultra-thin movement to the complex floating tourbillon movement, all are made by La Cote-aux-Fees. The workshop is designed and produced by itself.

 The most gorgeous of this series is the two unique advanced jewelry mysterious watches, which create smooth dragons and phoenixes with smooth metal lines, delicately set with round and square cut diamonds, and delicately embellished egg-faced cut gemstones, adding more atmosphere. luxurious. It is worth mentioning that in order to achieve different texture effects, Piaget especially used a variety of enamel techniques in the series. Enamel has been used in clock making since the 15th century. Although it is not the mainstream decorative technique of the 20th century, with the recent popularity of retro fashion, this traditional technology has become more and more popular. The unique oriental flavor of enamel is just like dragons and phoenixes. Totems coincide.
 Those who are interested in echoing the theme of dragons and phoenixes are also Chopin and Cartier. The former LUC Urushi di-painted watch series is based on the Chinese concept of ‘five elements’ of gold, wood, water, fire, and earth. The Kirin and other five kinds of spirit beasts are decorated with Japanese national treasure-level lacquer painting on the dial. They were drawn by lacquer master Masaru Kiichiro himself, which is more collectible. The latter is assisted by Western dragons, inspired by Greek mythology. In the Chimera series, a water dragon set with emeralds and diamonds surrounds a large opal that sparkles in ocean tones, adding a fantasy color to this brooch.

Exquisite Sports Review Of The Bulgari Ch40ssdta Chronograph

Bulgari, a luxury brand from Italy, has always played an important role in the fashion industry. Its jewellery design and its bold and innovative designs and unique styles are loved by everyone. With the development of the brand, the product line has been gradually expanded, and watches and perfumes have been added. The watch factory has been established in the watch kingdom Switzerland. In 1977, the BVLGARI BVLGARI watch was launched and became a timeless classic in the world. In 1982, Bulgari Time Neuchâtel was established to design and manufacture Bulgari watches. What I bring to you today is a Diagono Professional Tachymetoric series CH40SSDTA sports watch from Bulgari. Next, let’s take a look at this delicate watch with me.

  The reason why this watch is called ‘Exquisite Sports’ is because it is relatively small and exquisitely designed. Each detail of the bracelet shows the delicate design of this watch, so small that it is as small as the bracelet The connection between the bends and the time scale on the dial are exquisite everywhere.

  This Bulgari watch is positioned as a sports watch, with a stainless steel case material, with chronograph and speed measurement functions. The overall color mix is ​​a design of a black dial and a silver-gray white dial. The top of the three small hands is painted red, adding some bright tones to the entire low-key black.

  The thickness of this watch is 11 mm, which is a relatively thin style in men’s watches. The design of the three buttons on the side is relatively tough, especially the square bridge design in the middle of the three buttons will make it more tough and stylish, which is the way most men like.

Exquisite strap design, each joint is done perfectly.

  Let’s take a look at the strap. We can see that the strap is composed of three parts and then connected by a series of small screws. Because of the ultra-thin strap design, it looks particularly delicate.

  This watch is worn in the form of a folding buckle. What is more personalized is that the folding buckle does not use the ‘clip type’ that is often seen, but uses a ‘button style’ style. I don’t know how safe is this wearing method in actual wearing?

  The bottom of the table is made of stainless steel, which can reach 100 meters water resistance. And this watch has passed the Swiss Observatory certification, so there is no doubt in terms of movement and stability, it is a trustworthy sports watch, 100 meters waterproof performance can meet most people’s needs.

  At thirty o’clock is a small 30-minute chronograph dial. In order to make reading more convenient, accurate and beautiful, the top of the small hands is specially painted with red paint, which will make reading easier.

  At three o’clock is the small seconds dial, the outside is three buttons, at two o’clock is the chronograph start / pause button, in the middle is the crown with the time adjustment function, at four o’clock is the chronograph zero button.

  In addition to the chronograph function between four and five o’clock, this watch also has a date display function. The scale on the outer ring of the case is a scale for measuring speed. Its use must be done when you know the specific distance. Use, for example, the distance from point A to point C is 1 km, and then when you move quickly between this area, press the timing start button, when you reach point C, press the timing pause button, then You can see how long it took you to complete this 1 km, so you can measure your speed. If you completed 1 km in 1 minute, your speed is 60 km / hour.

  At last, we looked at the workmanship at the lugs, and it was also a whole without seeing any unsmoothness. Every detail showed the workmanship of this exquisite watch.
  Summary: This Bulgari watch is positioned as a sports model, which has a big difference with the design style of other Bulgari product lines. Its sports style is still quite obvious. The exquisite workmanship reflects the characteristics of Bulgari products. In terms of movement power, this watch has passed the Swiss Observatory certification, which can fully explain that this watch is a reliable watch. In terms of design Looking at the stainless steel material with the black dial, the individual stainless steel bracelet highlights the sporty style of this watch, which is a recommended sports style watch.

Red And Gold Version Of The Universal Da Vinci Series Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Real Shot

The Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph is the first time in the history of IWC Schaffhausen to combine the chronograph of the 89000 movement series with the moon phase profit and loss display of the perpetual calendar function at ’12 o’clock Watch with small dial. This year, there are two versions of the red gold version and the stainless steel version. The red gold version uses a silver-plated white dial. I think it is clearer and better than the steel version. Next, let’s enjoy this red gold version of the flagship watch of the IWC Vinci series.

   This time, the IWC Vinci series watch uses a delicate craftsmanship. ‘Dark blue circular display disk-the shadow of the earth-rotates, gradually showing the moon phase erosion, platinum particles shining against the dark blue background, making the small dial like a starry night sky’ This is the official introduction, so On the timer at 12 o’clock, we can see a lot of fine white dots. These are the platinum particles embedded by the brand, which are very unique.

   For this perpetual calendar chronograph, IWC incorporated the moon phases into it to create a more poetic dial atmosphere to reduce the functionality conveyed by complex functions, because the Da Vinci series is not a series of prominent functions. The sense of design and art should even take precedence over the function. The watch case has a diameter of 43 mm. As always, IWC’s dimensions are 15.5 mm. The size of the entire watch is comparable to the super complicated models of some top brands.

   The removable lugs designed by Da Vinci series watches this year are a very interesting small design in this SIHH. Although there are not a few active lugs on the market, they are rare in IWC, and The lugs look great.

   Through the transparent sapphire glass case back, the wearer can appreciate the sophisticated movement design with blue steel screws, the red gold rotor and the rich decoration on the bridge. The 89630 self-made chronograph movement with a 68-hour power reserve is clearly visible and is powered by the IWC dual detent automatic winding system.

   IWC’s perpetual calendar has its own patented design and is also quite representative of the current perpetual calendar structure. It was created by IWC watchmaker and inventor Kurt Klaus, and after the efforts of IWC engineers, Integrating multiple functions, this 89630 automatic perpetual calendar chronograph movement is derived.

   The moon phase profit and loss display and the moon’s actual profit and loss cycle only accumulate a one-day error every 577.5 years. In the same-colored small dial at the ‘3’, ‘6’ and ‘9’ o’clock positions, the perpetual calendar displays the date, month and Day of the week; four-digit year display is in the window in the lower left corner of the dial. The calendar is mechanically programmed and has taken into account the length of different months and even the effects of leap years. However, every hundred years (such as 2100, 2200, etc.) will be one leap day, at which time the watchmaker will need to manually adjust the calendar on March 1. In 2300, the century display discs that currently begin with ’20’, ’21’, and ’22’ will be replaced with new century display discs suitable for use between 2300 and 2599.
