It is said that fashion trends have reincarnation. Even through the calculation of some mathematical models, a more accurate cycle can be deduced. For example, the cycle of clothing trends is about 28 years. The ‘vintage’ trend of Vintage, which has become popular on the fashion show, has actually caught the watch industry. Not only did all kinds of classical watches from the 1940s to the 1970s become popular, they also became the blueprints for major manufacturers to produce replicas. Even some pocket watches earlier than the 1920s became the subject of replicas.
