With ‘Twelve Hours of Chang’an’ being a hit on the dark horse TV series, the live-action version of ‘Mulan’ has been a hot topic for two days. In fact, in the two years of Chinese drama, starting from ‘Langyao Bang’, the topic of Chinese style has attracted everyone’s attention, regardless of the structure of the drama, the clothing and makeup, makeup and historical details of the characters. Many people may be curious at first about the performance of the ‘four-character brother’, especially in the dark horse historical drama with this old drama. But so far, the acting has not only dropped, but also historical details are worth a look. (Pictures are taken from the stills of the Chang’an Twelve Hours on the Internet.) Judging from the plot, the twelve hours that happened on the eve of the Yuan Festival. At the same time, things happen everywhere, making the play’s rhythm compact and hanging People appetite. The director’s skillful use of long shots also made many netizens praise it, showing the prosperous scenery, folk customs, and fireworks life of Chang’an City at that time. (Pictures are taken from the stills posters of the ‘Chang’an Twelve Hours’ on the Internet.) The shocking ‘fork hand ceremony’ has made many theater fans have a new understanding of the etiquette of ancient China. For the attention of each character, there are illustrations to illustrate the exquisite details and cultural attention. There are also professionals in the play who carefully restored 28 kinds of Tang Dynasty dim sums, displayed in various banquet scenes, and blended the two intangible cultural heritages of ancient papermaking and ironsmithing into the plot expression, which can be described as the emphasis on traditional culture And respect. (The picture is taken from the movie poster of ‘Mulan’ on the Internet) Not every ‘Disney Princess’ must be particularly beautiful, China’s Mulan should be full of the charm of battle. Although Fujian Tulou appeared at the beginning, it really did not match the historical background, which caused a lot of controversy among the crowd. At one point, I wondered if you had misunderstood the ‘Chinese style’? Netizens feel that this is full of ‘Western imagination of the ancient East’. In fact, this type of American Chinese style, both domestic and foreign netizens, has a high degree of attention, although everyone has their own understanding. Let’s look forward to the release next spring! (The picture is taken from the movie poster of ‘Mulan’ on the Internet) In today’s impetuous and superficial real world, to be exquisite and exquisite, it seems that it is more and more related to the wood, but it is because of its rareness that it is more worthy of our cherishment. And when it comes to particular things, clocks are one of them. When we admire clothing, shoes, bags, and jewelry, we usually see what is what, its style, materials, craftsmanship, and touch are clear at a glance. But when we admire a timepiece, we can only know about one or two. The structure, material, polishing, and decoration that are really hidden in the case movement are often invisible and inaccessible. It is precisely the respect and persistence of these details that are not shown to the outside world that is the most important foundation for the success of a high-end watch. Let’s pick up the magnifying glass and take a closer look at some wonderful masterpieces of clockwork, especially they also exude a strong Chinese flavor. This is a longing for the land of China and a tribute to the ancient east. Bovet Bovet Amadéo Fleurier series watch has a Swiss watch brand but was founded in China, is it strange? In 1818 (During the Jiaqing reign of the Qing Dynasty), the Swiss Edouard Bovet departed from Europe on a passenger ship and arrived in China after a four-month voyage. It didn’t take long to sell his four pocket watches. In 1822 (During the Qing Dynasty), he founded Bowei in Guangzhou and sold high-end Western watches to the royal aristocrats of the Qing court. Minister Li Hongzhang was his enthusiast. In order to cater to the Chinese market, the timepieces produced by Bowei at that time were flying and dancing in pairs. In the Amadéo Fleurier series, Powell brought two more dragon-shaped works this year. This series has a feature that you can switch between a watch, a clock or a pocket watch in a few simple steps without using tools. The diameter of the case is 43 mm. One of them is made of red gold, and a micro-painted golden dragon is hovering over the blue mother-of-pearl. The other is made of white gold with a gray mother-of-pearl dial, which is painted with a lacquer. Flying dragon. Jaquet Droz’s Magic Lotus Automaton is not the earliest Swiss watch brand associated with China. As early as the end of the 18th century, Jaquet Droz had supplied to the Forbidden City. Among the many Jacques de Lore collections in the Qing Palace collection, there is one of Qianlong’s favorite works. The special thing is that the European gentleman automatic doll on the clock, dipped the ink brush in advance, activate the switch, and will write neatly. A big character: ‘Eight directions, nine earthly kings.’ This year, Jacques de Loire once again brought a work full of Chinese style ‘Koi magic lotus’, lotus leaf, lotus, koi, reed, dragonfly, each A lap of 30 seconds, it goes round and round on the disk, and the chain can run for 4 minutes. In the pond made of mother-of-pearl, there are 4 lotus flowers, which represent spring, summer, autumn and winter. One of the lotuses that rotates with the surface of the disk changes the color of the heart every time it is turned from the hour plate or the lotus leaf. Ruby and sapphire The yellow sapphire will take turns to become the center of the flower. In addition to the tail of the koi, it will move up and down. The dragonfly at 9 o’clock on the disk is a power reserve indicator. As the power passes, it slowly flies towards the lotus leaf. When it finally falls on the lotus leaf, it means that it is time to wind the watch. The case is 43 mm in diameter and is available in red or white gold, each limited to 28 pieces. In addition to this three-dimensional moving puppet watch, the brand has two other Chinese-style watches this year. One is a painted koi on the black big fire enamel, and the other is a micro-painted panda family on the ivory big open fire enamel dial. The red gold case diameter is 39 mm, the koi is limited to 28, and the panda is limited to 8. Vacheron Constantin Vacheron Constantin loft artisan series Jinnianlongteng and Cong Ling wild watch entered the Chinese market early Swiss watch brand Vacheron Constantin, according to records, in 1845 Vacheron Constantin shipped a batch of sample watches to Guangdong, the next year to Guangdong Duval Mr. shipped 33 pairs of pocket watches. According to a letter sent by Mr Duval from Guangdong to Geneva, he suggested that the brand should equip pocket watches with Chinese-style numbers and timing methods, and design the dials with Chinese ink painting. Last May, when the brand celebrated the 10th anniversary of the ‘House of Vacheron Constantin’ in Shanghai, it appeared on a loft craftsman art master series Jinnian Longteng watch. The opaque Burgundy red enamel dial was decorated with a hand-carved Jinlong pattern. The engraver is naturally natural, with a strong attitude. He is entangled on the hand-carved movement, as if it will rise in the next second. I believe that it is difficult for the Chinese to reject such a wonderful work with good meaning. Apart from Longfeng, what other animals best represent China? That is naturally a giant panda. This year, the brand launched a set of ‘Congling Wild Fun’ watches. At first glance, they were attracted by the pandas who could be regarded as Chinese national treasures. They used fine wood inlay technology to cut small pieces of wood of different shapes and colors by hand. Vivid pattern. Each dial is made of a variety of different woods. Through color and texture, the pattern is more vivid. This panda dial uses more than 300 pieces of wood. Chanel Mademoiselle Privè Coromandel watch Although she has never visited China, she is longing for Chinese culture. In her Paris apartment where she lived, various screens, Buddha statues, vases and decorations full of oriental charm were displayed. Mademoiselle Privè French is ‘Ladies’ Exclusive’. Launched in 2012, it combines enamel, carving, embroidery, gemstone or mother-of-pearl inlay, and each watch is an art piece. Coromandel specifically refers to the Chinese ebony lacquered screen in Ms. Chanel’s Paris apartment. Since 2012, the brand has continued to draw inspiration from this, copying the patterns on the screen to the dark enamel plate, or the leaves, or ladies. , Or landscapes, or birds, these spiritual animations full of Chinese artistic conception are graceful and graceful. It is particularly worth mentioning that the enamel paintings are personally operated by the enamel master Anita Prrchet, and each one is unique.

Baume & Mercier has been working hard to implant a distinctive personality mark for each of its collections. I belong to Caplan, I think it should be an incarnation of sports and personality. . The design of this series is directly inspired by the single-button chronograph manufactured by the brand in 1948.
Baume & Mercier 2012 Kaplan 10064, and 10065
In 2012, for the historic Kaplan series, Baume & Mercier decided to inherit and break through. The heritage is to continue the characteristics of the dial’s Arabic numerals, speedometer, rangefinder and retro lugs, and then breakthroughly add a 44mm larger case, a stylish blue and black two-tone dial, and a new stainless steel star model.

Shenzhen is China’s innovation city, and the prosperity of the watch industry has also made Shenzhen the ‘Capital of Watch and Clock in China’. In 1987, the Shenzhen Watch Industry Association was established. The Shenzhen Watch Industry Association, which was established in 30 in 2017, not only actively promoted the rapid growth of Chinese watch brands, but also set an example for entrepreneurs in the field of charity. Tianwangbiao donated 2 million yuan of love fund this time, focusing on promoting the construction of educational charity culture. Since 1988, Mr. Dong Guanming started the Tianwang watch brand in Shenzhen. The brand has gone through 29 years, and next year will usher in a brand standing year: the 30th anniversary. The donation of 2 million yuan by Tianwang Watch also hopes to convey the idea that in the years when we stand, we need to ask ourselves with a more mature and confident attitude and a greater sense of responsibility. The Tianwang watch with the crown as the brand identity has been well versed in the brand’s spiritual mission and responsibility for many years. Therefore, it has always hoped to set an example for the industry in brand innovation and development and fulfilling social responsibilities.
Education is the foundation of a country and the foundation of a strong country. In a certain sense, it determines the future of a country and a nation. Education charity has also been the focus of Tianwangbiao over the years. In 2001, it donated 300,000 yuan to build a primary school in Hunan minority areas. In 2015, it donated 1 million yuan to set up a ‘timepiece treasure scholarship’ in Guangdong Jiaying University to help mechanics realize their dreams. In 2016, Mr. Dong, in his personal name, donated 5 million Hong Kong dollars to the Hong Kong Watch Manufacturers Association and the Watch Industry Association, for the discovery and training of talents in the watch industry; in May 2017, the Tianwang Charity Fund was provided to Kunming, Yunnan Province Tubuka Dashujiao Primary School donated 189,000 yuan to improve the school’s basic education facilities and improve the learning environment for students; this time, on the eve of the 30th anniversary of the brand, donate another 2 million yuan and work with the association to continue to promote Development of educational charity.

Whether it is social assistance or education assistance, we have been leading the way continuously. With the development of the Tianwang watch brand, public welfare and charity are increasingly integrated into the corporate DNA. As a watch brand, we not only focus on polishing the Chinese ‘core’ of accurate time, but also hope to bring people a beautiful time and cultural enjoyment while continuing to write about public welfare.
Tianwang Watch has experienced ups and downs on the road to entrepreneurship. As a well-known domestic watch brand, while applauding entrepreneurs, we are also actively giving back to the society, because we always remember and know that we must always remember our original intentions.

看 Looking past through a watch is like seeing the face of a lover through the face of a baby. The appearance of these watches has a unique aesthetic orientation and design style of the past era. Through the face of a watch, you can go back fifty years, or even a hundred years ago.
The existence of vintage watches rests on people’s deep feelings. Watches of that era were so low-key, you wouldn’t see bright colors. Red, orange, blue dial? no way. Black and white gray is used so elegantly, the most is the ivory white dial, the faint silver gray, the calm black, the really beautiful face without heavy makeup and bright is also beautiful. Retro watches with black-and-white ash dials create the natural beauty of empty valley orchids and river daffodils. The case is also metallic, and the gloss of the metal itself is already the best decoration, gold, white gold, platinum, rose gold. Coupled with a black or brown leather strap with classic feelings, retro watches will not have a peculiar shell design, everything is ordinary, but this ordinary itself is extraordinary. The most classic round case is as old as a star in the sky. The occasional square and rectangular case is also a classic left over from the past, in line with the golden ratio. The elegant tonneau-shaped case, the retro watch with simple small three-pin and large three-pin, there are no overly complicated functions, nor too gorgeous carving decoration, but the ordinary design can make people enjoy for a long time. Because there is less and more spirit and temperament, people in the past can calm down and make every detail perfect.
复古 Retro watches in the details always make people at first sight. The hands of a watch are like the eyes of a watch. There are more than one or twenty kinds of pointer designs. In fact, there is no need for new hands to change the beautiful hands, as long as one style is the ultimate. The needles of the prince, the princess of the concubine, and the needles of the willow leaf are all extraordinary pointers, but the lines have a charm that was unique only in the past, and they are absolutely ridiculous. Like the Mona Lisa smile, the delicate lines and angles are fascinating. Roman scale, onion crown, slender lugs, every detail is meticulously crafted, people can be as intoxicated as admiring Da & middot; Vinci’s masterpieces.
经典 10 classic elements of vintage watches
1. Blue steel treasure needle
的 The Breguet-style hands designed by master watchmaker Breguet are the most classic elements in the field of horology. Even if a watch is full of modern style, matching Breguet needles will add elegance. Although this design and its variants have appeared in countless watch brands. However, the blue steel Breguet hands widely used in Breguet watches are the highest level of Breguet needles currently recognized in the world.
2. Cask-shaped case
Because the times represented by vintage models are not the same, their shell shapes are often ever-changing due to different aesthetic tastes. However, the barrel-shaped case is undoubtedly of the era significance. Compared to the most common round case in vintage watches, the barrel shape has a change of elegance, and this art deco style is actually the most typical feature of clock design in the last century.
3. Orbital scale
Orbital scale shows the minimalist style advocated by the watch designers and the most essential meaning of timepieces as time carriers: under the rule and pure curve outline, time is so rigorous, meticulous and intolerant. In addition, all changes in form seem to be just footnotes outside of time.
4. Alligator leather strap
Compared to rubber or metal straps, alligator materials such as crocodile leather are indispensable in the manufacture of watches and clocks in the early days of the cold industry. They seem to reflect the originality and simplicity of the watches and clocks. Compared with other leathers, crocodile leather has a unique temperament. Especially the hand-stitched stitches and fine lines and textures always remind people of the time and respect of watchmakers in the era of pure handmade.
5.Rose gold material
Compared with gold and platinum, rose gold is less brilliant and understated, but it has a faded light and shadow, but it has an innate and timeless emotional mood. The inexplicable nostalgia of the rose gold case actually coincides with the artistic expression and time concept explained by the retro models.
The most unpretentious texture and shape, but the most practical and classic design, the strong versatility has made the spiral crown since the advent of clocks, and it is still the first choice for simple and low-key models. In addition to functionality and expressiveness, it also represents a kind of dedication and persistence to traditional watchmaking techniques.
7. Newsuo dial
I have been troubled by both the porcelain dial and the Newsuo dial, which have the characteristics of a retro watch, both of which are signs of the gradual transformation of the watch to the artistic and aesthetic taste after leaving the category of pure time carrier. . But in the end, the reason why I chose the Newsot dial is not only because it represents a rigorous and meticulous decoration, but also its countless details and variability as a traditional decorative design. Its popularity is also rare Can not be compared. At this time, the dial of the Newsaw pattern is still gaining the favor of watch connoisseurs with the fine texture of its hand-controlled machine carving.
8. Pear-shaped hands
Although church needles and snake eye needles are also classic design elements derived from traditional clocks and watches, as far as the shape itself is concerned, they seem to be slightly different from the classic beauty of the pear-shaped hands. The antique building-like shape makes the pear-shaped pointer look so noble and arrogant, and its design itself seems to have a noble blood of its own.
9. Breguet time scale
As the most typical design element in the Art Deco period, the Breguet was once the most graceful and elegant design detail in the field of clocks and watches. It has made the time-honored timelines interesting and the watch itself is full of pleasing visuals because of its existence. guide. As an important visual feature that changes the external appearance of the watch, the Breguet time scale is also one of the most commonly used design elements in vintage watches.
10. Small three stitches
Although there are still many small three-hand designs in modern timepieces, this form itself is a historical testimony of the continuous development and evolution of clocks. The first timepieces could not achieve the integrated structure of the central seconds hand, so only the second hand Offset to another position. As a design limitation conferred by an era, the small three-pin structure has long lost its technical value, but its historical significance has given it a unique and classicist temperament.
TONI MissLovely Beauty Series New Product Launch Conference
TONTITONI presents the new MissLovely watch series. In order to be serious, Plum Watch specially invited Hong Kong film and television star Ms. Chen Minzhi and Ms. Li Shiyun to come to the new product launch site to share with everyone the fashion vigor brought by the beautiful series.

Montreux July 4, 2013-In 2010, Audemars Piguet, Voices of Montreux, and the Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL) united as one to support the late Claude Nobs (Claude Nobs) The precious materials of the Montreux Jazz Festival were digitized, restored and preserved. Thousands of hours of world-class musician record collection has now become the first audiovisual library recognized by UNESCO as part of its ‘World Memory Project’, contributing to the protection of the world’s intangible heritage.
To ensure the legacy of Claude Nobbs continues, its partner Thierry Amsallem announced the creation of the Claude Nobbs Foundation, whose goal is to protect and make more people accessible to this Priceless collection, which contains almost half a century of music history, with 5,000 hours of live recordings.
For Audemars Piguet, the Voice of Montreux Digital Project fits perfectly with its own brand value, which preserves its long history and tradition in fine watchmaking for future generations in the Jurassic Valley. Regarding this cooperation, François-Henry Bennahmias, Chief Executive Officer of Audemars Piguet, said: ‘Claude Nobus’s most important achievement in his life has been to promote this project. He is a loyal friend of Audemars Piguet, and we are glad to participate from this level This project. What’s more, we are proud to support this project, and we will transform this unique heritage into an enduring first-class digital resource. ‘
Claude Nobs is a dreamer who values the world of music very much. To this end he founded the Montreux Jazz Festival, which has become a custom in Sweden and the world. As with all great ideas, before Claude Nobs succeeded in persuading television stations to record concerts, he spent a lot of energy on persuasion and perseverance. His vision is to leave a musical legacy for future generations. When Claude heard that Swiss television was going to wash out the early materials, he bought those materials back from the television, and since then he personally confirmed that all concerts were recorded and filmed. This legacy consists of approximately 5,000 hours of live audiovisual recordings, including nearly half a century of festival history from 1967 to 2012, forming a unique collection that Quincy Jones describes as ‘ Proof of the most important musical history including jazz, blues and rock ‘.
We all hope to have a watch that is close to perfection. It has high value, good performance, reasonable price, and well-known brand. And even though such watches are hard to find, they are not missing. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of Swiss Mido. As its classic series, the Belem Celli series has attracted much attention. It’s amazing and memorable.
The Belem Celli series is a collection that pays attention to watchmaking tradition and classic design. It is inspired by the arcade of Emmanuel II of Milan. It draws the artistic atmosphere of classical architecture and brings extraordinary watch temperament. The double-layered bezel reflects the unique architectural inspiration of the series, and also adds a distinct layering to the watch.
As the century-old watch of the celebration brand, it has its own special appeal. The design maintains the simple and elegant style of the Belem Celli series. The difference is that the calendar is upgraded from a single calendar window to a large calendar with a double window display. Although its function is to provide date information, it is completely different in style and skill. The large calendar has long been a symbol of high-end watches and has a long history, and the realization of the large calendar requires more complex mechanical structures and reflects higher watchmaking technology.
The diameter of the case of 40 mm has the atmosphere of the dial, and the overall thickness is 10.38 mm. It is not thin or thick, and the ratio is appropriate. The surface of the stainless steel case is coated with PVD rose gold coating, which is warm and luxurious, very pleasing.
Beyond that, the details of this watch deserve a closer look. The white dial is simple and bright, with three-dimensional scales and Roman characters on the surface, giving a sense of luxury. The hour and minute hands are specially treated with double facets, one side is polished, the other is sandblasted, the light and dark are interlaced, and the texture is distinctive. At 6 o’clock, the large calendar is presented in the form of two wide date windows, which is more clear and extraordinary.
The double bezel is one of the characteristics of the Mido Berencelli series, reminiscent of the glass vault of the arcade of Emmanuel II of Milan. Compared to the traditional single-layer bezel, it is round, rich in layers, individual and classic.
The crown meets the overall rounded style, the overall arc is smooth and beautiful, and the hand feels excellent.
The lugs extend from the case, and the curves are natural and elegant.
Black leather strap
The watch is equipped with a black leather strap carefully made by Mido. The texture is flexible and anti-allergic, which can fit the wrist well and provide a comfortable feel. The butterfly buckle on the strap is safe and secure.
Of course, the most worthy to say is naturally the exclusive Caliber 80 fully automatic mechanical movement specially developed for the centennial celebration. It has developed a large calendar structure based on the original Caliber 80 automatic mechanical movement. There is one more disk in the calendar, so whether it is normally driven or manually adjusted, it is more complicated than a single calendar. Besides, it needs to consider that in order to display the correct date between the two disks, strict cooperation is required. Because of this, it has always been considered a complication in high-end watches.
Obviously, the new Mido Berencelli series ‘anniversary day’ large calendar automatic mechanical watch has excellent appearance, unique functionality, and unique brand significance. Cost-effective watch is also an excellent dress watch. Its domestic public price is RMB 7700. I think at the same price, there may not be a more unique dress watch. Do you have a heartbeat?
At 4:00 pm on March 19th, Beijing time, the 2015 Basel Watch Fair will officially kick off. Just one day before the launch, the reporting team in front of the Watch House has already moved from Nasha Thiel rushed to the Basel exhibition hall early to peek into the latest models of this year. This year’s new watch can be said to be the most special in recent years. If you use two words to describe subversion, you need to use one word to describe it. It is ‘Duang’. Below, we have selected a few watches that are definitely enough for Duang this year.

The introduction of this watch has satisfied people who both like the appearance of military watches and feel that they are not perfect. According to the requirements, this watch is definitely the most Duang model this year.
