Meitu Bruna Series Two Places Watches

Mido is one of the brands I recommend most to some watches ‘First Brother’. The biggest feature of this brand is not following the trend. In fact, this strategy is very clever. Even if other manufacturers fight for design and complicated technology, they can’t deal with it. It is still implicit and uses its own style to respond to changes. The trend of watches is changing every year, and it will return to the original point. For example, a small watch becomes a large watch. After the big watch became popular for a while, the small watch began to be restored. I believe that many cousins ​​share my feelings. At this time, Mido has shown its competitiveness. The price is close to the people and it is not easy to be outdated. It is very suitable for smart consumers in the white-collar class.
布鲁 The case of this Bruner series two-time watch is my favorite classic design. The transition between the lug and the case is very soft and natural. The bold lines on the dial show the rigid characteristics of the building frame. What’s more worthy of praise is that the designer has taken great care to organically integrate the calendar with the time scales of the two places, which is very clever. The hands at the two places are also very interesting. The small red dots on the triangle make the pure dial instantly vivid.
In fact, subtle design is often the most touching. Not just watches, the design of any product is the same. Simplicity, simplicity, and conciseness are the attitudes of life in which we abandon prosperity and pursue simplicity.

Chocolate Chopard Painting Process 祥瑞 金 羊

Chopard once again pays tribute to the traditional Asian culture. The brand specially selects Japanese traditional dill painting technology to present a new L.U.C XP watch with the theme of the year of the sheep. The most artistic goat shape in the zodiac is exquisitely presented on the dial, and the case is also equipped with an ultra-thin L.U.C movement made by Chopard.

Extraordinary art reveals harmony and temperament
The dial of this new zodiac watch is entirely handmade, and Chopard pays tribute to the long-standing Asian culture by using the traditional Japanese dill painting process. A goat stood quietly on the dial; under the gorgeous colorful clouds, there were flowers representing joy and tranquility. In Chinese traditional zodiac wisdom, goats have a stable temperament that is not ill, but at the same time they are upright and righteous. It has a lively mind, but is not brave and belligerent. It is good at expressing its own insights through artistic expression; it is approachable, generous and amiable, has both ease and virtue and harmony, and has close relations with important values ​​such as land and family.
Ancient Japanese lacquer art
The raw lacquer is extracted from the resin of ‘Urushi’ tree, also called ‘lacquer tree’ or ‘Japanese lacquer tree’. Sumac is mainly grown in Japan and China, and can only be collected once a year, and the number is very small. After the resin is collected for three to five years, it can be processed into a highly resistant, honey-like raw lacquer. It needs to be painted layer by layer, and each layer is extremely thin. Maki is a special lacquer technique, that is, spreading powder such as gold powder on the paint surface to highlight the outline of the paint. The gold powder is glued to the lacquered surface with a small lacquer brush made of bamboo tube and natural hair to outline extremely fine lines. This craft requires extremely high skills and rigorous meticulous attitude, and only a handful of lacquer masters still know it.

Celebrating the Lunar New Year with brand new works every year, it has become a brand tradition cherished by Chopard. The new L.U.C XP Urushi golden sheep dill watch will be the perfect blend of dill paint known as the essence of ancient Japanese lacquer painting and Swiss top watchmaking technology.

Unparalleled fine watchmaking
Such arts and crafts can only be matched with L.U.C XP watches. An elegant and ultra-thin watch was transformed into a shape with a diameter of 39.5 mm and a thickness of only 6.8 mm, which is a symbol of Chopard’s superb watchmaking technology. The self-winding mechanical movement is equipped with a double barrel, which guarantees a power reserve of 65 hours. The Chopard L.U.C movement is one of the few masterpieces that can achieve this. The master craftsmen of the Fleurier Chopard watch factory overcome this technical challenge with the help of a delicate eccentric rotor structure. Instead of being covered by the movement for winding, it is embedded flush with the movement as a whole, thus maintaining an ultra-thin appearance and automatic winding function.
The L.U.C 96.17-L movement is decorated by the brand’s artisans and strictly complies with the quality standards of traditional fine watchmaking. This watch is made in 18K white gold or 18K rose gold. The L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Sheep and Duck-Eye Watch is paired with a black alligator leather strap and is equipped with a special case carefully decorated with the Dye-Eye process. The outside of the watch box is black, and the inside is painted with gold. Its octagonal design has a connotation of joy in Eastern culture.
