Half Of The New Tables In 2018 Have Been Finished

It is not too late to get to the topic. This year’s SIHH Geneva watch exhibition has ended. I write some of my feelings and also serve as a summary of this year’s Geneva watch exhibition.
   Many years ago, when I first came into contact with watches, when I first knew about these exhibitions, I did n’t have any contact with watches and bags, so I was “virtual”. Talking on paper ‘is similar to’ keyboard car god ‘. Later, my wife began to contact the small business of watches and bags, and I became ‘down to earth’. I used to talk about it, but now it’s true. Discount quotes, sales and recycling, which watches are large and which are difficult to obtain, you know. Therefore, I often write watches, mainly writing mainstream watches, complex watches, niche watches that most people usually consume and contact. I rarely involve them because they have nothing to do with most people.

Vacheron Constantin produced a steel watch with a public price of only 90,000 yuan this year.

Cartier’s new Santos, compared with the old models, have changed a lot.
   I believe what brothers have watched at the Geneva Watch Fair this year. Everyone can see that many brands are lowering the entry threshold and lowering prices. Within 100,000 to 100,000 is the price range for most people to buy watches. Many new watches of mainstream brands are at this price. Vacheron Constantin produced a lot of steel watches this year, especially those with a public price of 90,000 yuan; Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new Beibei series junior three-pointer steel watches also cost more than 50,000 yuan; Cartier’s steel case Shantos also cost more than 50,000; IWC is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. The price of the commemorative steel watch is relatively normal; the price of the small Panerai is also relatively low. As we all know, after these new watches are listed, due to factors such as exchange rates, discounts, and secondary markets, the public price itself is not too high, and the actual price must be known to everyone. The price is more affordable.

Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new Beibei series junior calendar (top) and junior calendar (bottom).
   A brother wrote a message to me on WeChat, and he said, ‘In the end, two or three years later, you will find that each brand has a low-cost watch. This is said here, verified in two or three years later.’ Everyone chats, but I think what he said is true. The price of each house has been reduced. On the one hand, I think it is a good thing, so that more people can buy luxury watches. But there is one problem that everyone needs to pay attention to. Spend less money than before, bought a high-end brand entry table, the brand is big, there is face in front of people. But when you meet players who are familiar with watches, everyone knows the true value of this watch. So in the mainstream watches circulating in the market, expensive is still expensive. For example, Lange 1, New and Vertical, Royal Oak, Da Fei, Portugal 7, the core and characteristics of each family are concentrated on these classic models. For every penny you buy, it depends on whether you want face or liking. With A3 and Magotan, who do you choose? These are real problems.

Lange’s new TRIPLE SPLIT triple chronograph.

The new Freak Vision in Athens.
   I often say that there are a large number of mainstream watches on the market. These cousins ​​buy more. I am also the person who buys these watches, so I can give you some reference information. Complex tables are mainly eye-opening and knowledge-raising. Several complex watches on display at Geneva this year are very good. What impressed me most was Lange’s TRIPLE SPLIT three-track chronograph. In the past, Lange had a Double Split, which can track minutes and seconds. Now the new TRIPLE SPLIT can chase hours, minutes, and seconds, which is very good. Of course, this watch is destined to belong to a small number of people, but I will write it out later, because every time you add a tracking needle, a set of calipers with a stop-second is added to the movement. very complicated. The new Freak Vision in Athens is also very unique, I will talk about this watch later. Brothers who are familiar with the watch market and trading should know that Freak’s circulation is actually not small. It is a complex watch that is often seen in the domestic secondary market. It can be seen that there are many likes.

The Piaget Altiplano Ultimate Concept is only 2 mm thick.
   In addition, this year Piaget and Audemars Piguet produced two ultra-thin watches. Piaget’s Altiplano Ultimate Concept is only 2 mm thick, making it the thinnest mechanical watch in the world. Audemars Piguet introduced the new Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar. This watch is also the world’s thinnest self-winding perpetual calendar. The new 51.33 million calendar movement used in this watch can be regarded as a super improved version of Audemars Piguet 21.2 million calendar movement. As you all know, the trend of watches is mainly sports watches, these ultra-thin watches are mainly used to ‘dazzle’ to show how good they are. Audemars Piguet’s new ultra-thin perpetual calendar is a platinum head and platinum chain, and the value can be imagined.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak’s new ultra-thin perpetual calendar.

   In fact, each brand will launch a lot of new models every year, but only a part of it can be displayed at the watch exhibition. Because the watches exhibited at the table show are definitely the latest and most complicated watches, and some of the regular watch changes and color changes will not be promoted vigorously. Some watches that are not on display, but will be hard to find in the future. For example, in July this year, Audemars Piguet launched a military style 44mm offshore chronograph with a khaki bezel and camouflage strap. Steel case, ceramic ring, camouflage military, 44 caliber, we don’t need to think about it, this watch is definitely the super hot model on the market this year.

Audemars Piguet’s new color matching ceramic ring offshore timing will be available in August this year.

   It won’t be long before the new watches at the Geneva Watch Fair are available. A few days ago, the full calendar of the historical masterpiece series steel case just released by Vacheron Constantin, I went to the central palace of Wangfu last week and found that it was already there. Like the new Cartier Santos, Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC’s new Portuguese meter, and new Panerai, these watches are definitely watches that many brothers are “within range”. If you are not in a hurry, the brothers can continue to wait and see, because after the Spring Festival, the Basel watch exhibition will start again, so that when the new watches are released in the first half of the year, you can start in the second half of the year.

Introduction To Vacheron Constantin’s ‘attic Craftsman’ Custom Watch Service

The special order service of Atelier Cabinotiers launched by Vacheron Constantin in Vacheron Constantin in 2006 is to provide customers with a unique personalized experience, using precision watches from 1755 The production process, and the patience of listening to the needs of customers to create a wrist for customers far better than the product ‘orphan’. There is no series, no physical products, no product catalogs, only a pair of ears listening to customer needs. All requests from customers, from the simplest to the most daring, need to be carefully evaluated by a special team of ‘Loft Craftsman Special Order Service’. These requirements must be consistent with the watchmaking spirit of Vacheron Constantin in order to be passed. Subsequently, ‘Attic Craftsman Special Order Service’ brought together watchmaking experts. Every new project involving technology development is supported by a team of engineers, mechanics and watchmakers. Their joint efforts can turn the most bizarre dreams into reality technology.
Art of the Cabiniers
 From the eleventh century, the first goldsmith to make Geneva famous was the goldsmith. Since then, their exquisite work has been favored by European royalty. Engravers and enamelers were inspired by this process and quickly established their own powerful industry associations. As a result, watchmakers, diamond cutters, engravers and bracelet makers flooded into Saint-Gervais, the oldest city on the banks of the Rhone in Geneva. After 1650, the number of watchmakers exceeded the number of goldsmiths, and watchmaking became a pillar industry in Geneva.
 However, Saint-Gervais, surrounded by walls, is full of narrow, shady streets. In order to make better use of the midday sun, the artisans like to set up the workshop on the top floor of the building. These workshops are usually narrow and crowded, sometimes built directly in the attic, with narrow windows lined up densely. The works born here have won a stable reputation for their outstanding quality. Soon, these workshops were called ‘lofts’ (closets), and their owners were called loft artisans. These trained attic artisans consider themselves not part of the artisan class, but the nobles of the artisans, or more like a group of artists, have received considerable education and training. In this way, for centuries, daily life, economic and social life in Geneva have left the artistic imprint of the attic artisans in the Saint-Gervais region.
Vacheron Constantin Exclusive Tradition
Back at the beginning, Vacheron Constantin has encouraged watchmakers to create watches based on customer needs, making the design of the watch and the selection of functions and components take a lot of time. It turns out that spending time and effort is worth it, and guests’ needs and dreams for watches are likely to be realized. Collectors of Vacheron Constantin watches know this very well. For example, Henry Graves Jr., a well-known New York banker and watch connoisseur, is an example of Vacheron Constantin’s custom-made watches.
Two other notable figures, King Fouad of Egypt and his son King Farouk, are also keen to collect Vacheron Constantin’s unique watches. A story vividly tells their love for a special watch: When the young Prince Farouk and his mother Queen Nazli visited Geneva in 1937, he was eager to visit the factory of Vacheron Constantin. Responsible Charles Constantin took the prince to the factory. While he was surprised by the prince’s extensive knowledge of watches, the prince revealed that he had taken apart many watches and studied how they worked. As early as 1934, during an official visit to Geneva, the city government gave him an exquisite watch made by Vacheron Constantin. There are 13 hands running on the dial: in addition to the regular hour, minute and second hands, there is also a chronograph seconds hand, a 30-minute chronograph hand, a double chase chronograph hand, four hands that display the perpetual calendar and the alarm clock hand 3. Power display pointer and spring energy device. This watch also features a minute repeater and moon phase display, consisting of 820 components, including 55 gems.
Launch of Attic Craftsman’s Special Custom Service
Vacheron Constantin, in order to reproduce the original intention and charm of 18th century Geneva timepieces, that is, based on mutual communication and creativity, and also to meet the growing needs of enthusiastic collectors, in 2006 launched the ‘Attic Artisan Special’ Customized Service & rdquo ;. This service inherits this tradition. Whether it is the ultimate complex requirements or the poetic time expression, or the machine-engraved pattern or enamel dial, whether it is Roman numerals or Arabic numerals, whether it is the center second hand or chronograph function, any watch enthusiast expects the same features. Can be realized. Next, whether to take the watch out for careful tasting or as a secret collection, leave it to the guests themselves. Either way, this is a very happy thing.
Here, there is no series, no physical products, no product catalog, only a pair of ears listening to customer needs. Everything begins with the story of a custom-made watch that has never been made public. A historical connoisseur requested that a master’s oil painting be reproduced on the dial with a ‘high-temperature open flame’ painted enamel technique; a poetry lover wanted to add a magnificent bell sound to his watch, and only on the birthday of his lover each year The time is only once; there is also a watch enthusiast with complex functions who dreams of having a mechanical masterpiece that has never been tried before.
All requirements, from the simplest to the most daring, need to be carefully evaluated by a special team of ‘attic artisan special order service’. These requirements must be consistent with the watchmaking spirit of Vacheron Constantin in order to be passed.
The industry’s only top custom service
 Vacheron Constantin is currently the only watchmaker in the industry to provide such personalized service, combining excellent quality with professional technology. ‘Special custom service for attic artisans’ The most important point is to bring together watchmaking experts. Every new project involving technology development is supported by a team of engineers, mechanics and watchmakers. Their joint efforts can turn the most bizarre dreams into reality technology. Vacheron Constantin’s designers and R & D department are on call whenever needed. The team dedicated to project development and follow-up will also take over the related work. There is also a special contact person responsible for communication between the team and the customer.
 As an additional customer service, ‘Loft Craftsman Special Customized Service’ has a special website for customers to understand the relevant situation. Customers can enter the website through identity verification to directly check the production progress of customized watches. Photos and videos to understand each stage of production, so you can view every process of watch production at any time.
 However, ‘the most valuable thing about a loft craftsman’s special order service’ lies in the superior craftsmanship. Vacheron Constantin’s masters of machine-engraved patterns and enamels are the only heirs of the industry who are proficient in the corresponding technologies; the masters of carving and the masters of precious stones have inherited the ancient tradition and perfectly combined talent and technology. The watches born in the hands of these masters of art are unique and represent the pinnacle of precision watchmaking. Like all watches created since 1755, they will eventually find their place in the brand’s glorious history and achievements.
La Fabrique’s by-product: Geneva’s famous jet d’eau
 In the beginning, watchmakers in Geneva created watches independently from beginning to end, but with the development of the watchmaking industry, this situation must change. Gradually, various groups of attic artisans began to combine: case assemblers, machine engravers, engravers, packers, gilts, enamelists, and of course watchmakers. ‘Freedom of training’ and work are under strict control to ensure that the production of watches and jewelry is of high quality. The intensive activities of Saint-Gervais led to the rename of the area as La Fabrique (factory). Here are merchants and craftsmen, as well as wealthy merchants who come to loft workshops to order directly. Around 1800, there were about 5,000 attic artisans in a city of only 26,000 inhabitants.
 Surprisingly, according to historical records, the origin of Geneva’s famous spring water jet d’eau is entirely due to these attic artisans. In 1886, in order to provide electricity to artisans in La Fabrique and the city, the government built a hydroelectric power station on the Rhône River close to Saint-Gervais. This high-pressure system enabled the local industry to use small piston engines. This engine is smaller and more energy efficient than a steam engine. However, every night when the craftsmen finish their work and turn off the engine, the operator of the hydropower station immediately shuts off the pump to avoid danger caused by excessive pressure. At this time, someone thought of installing a safety valve that sprayed water into the air to release excess pressure. In this way, the first jet d’eau 30 meters high was born.

Discussion On Hong Kong Asian Haute Horlogerie Exhibition

[House of Watch and Clock Culture Watch] Just now, in Hong Kong in October 2015, the watch circle has completed a gorgeous feast. The world’s lovers, watchmakers, watchmakers and The 12 top watchmaking brands are dating here, not in Switzerland, but in Hong Kong.

   The 3rd WATCHES & WONDERS ‘Clocks and Miracles’ Asian High-end Watch & Clock Exhibition was held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) at 1 Harbour Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong on September 30, 2015. It is a 4-day event, mainly for Asian high-end watch enthusiasts, Collector, Asian media and watch retailer. A total of 12 brands participated in the Haute Horlogerie Show, including Lange, Cartier, IWC, Piaget, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Vacheron Constantin, Richard Miller, Van Cleef & Arpels, Panerai, Montblanc, Roger Duro Peter and Baume & Mercier.

   Today, WATCHES & WONDERS “Clocks and Miracles” Asia’s high-end watch exhibition has become a climate in terms of quality and influence. It is not only the third largest watch event after SIHH Geneva International High-level Watch Salon and BASELWORLD. , Is also the only high-end watch exhibition held outside Switzerland, the keywords in this are: Asia, Hong Kong, clocks, high style.

New Asian layout for Haute Horlogerie
   For the horology exhibition in the horological industry, people have become accustomed to and agree with the grandest BASELWORLD international high-end watch and jewelry exhibition and the highest SIHH Geneva international high-end watch salon. These two old-fashioned high-end banquets have a long history. And playing a different role in the industry, has always been equally divided in the world of high-end watch exhibition. Nowadays, the Asian high-end watch exhibition under the name of ‘Watches and Miracles’ appears in Asia and Hong Kong as a symbol of the third largest force. There is no doubt a new regional layout of high-end watch events. So why is Asia? Why is it Hong Kong?

   In fact, the holding of the ‘Watches and Miracles’ Asia Haute Horlogerie exhibition originated from the idea of ​​the Exhibitors Committee of the Geneva International Haute Horlogerie Salon (SIHH). The official statement is: ‘Watches and Miracles’ Asia’s high-end watch exhibition aims to hold a high-end watch event in Asia to satisfy the admiration of many timepiece lovers in Asia. This argument sounds really full of humanity. However, the more convincing and more compelling must be the data on the Asian watch market.
   Since the 21st century, the Asia-Pacific region has been one of the main exporters of Swiss watches and clocks, which is crucial for the development of the Swiss watch and clock industry. In 2014, Asia-Pacific watch sales accounted for 54% of the Swiss watch industry’s total overseas sales. So in the Asia-Pacific region, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan are important markets for Swiss watches. Why would you choose Hong Kong?

   The reason why Hong Kong has become the preferred venue for the “Watches and Miracles” Asian High-end Watch and Clock Fair is closely related to the important trade status and special geographical location of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. First of all, because it is directly facing the huge market in Mainland China, Hong Kong has become the largest export market for Swiss watches and clocks, and the third export destination for Swiss timepieces. At the same time, Hong Kong is also a major hub of Asian watch trade, not only favored by the watch industry exhibition, but also has the status of exhibition industry of various industries.

   In this way, Hong Kong should be the first choice in the overseas expansion of the Swiss watch industry.
Richemont Group is the biggest winner
   In a magnificent high-end watch and clock event, we were too busy to marvel at the new design of watches, the complicated functions of dazzling technology, the glamorous brand culture, the exhibition halls with different styles, and the rich experiences. The brain is flooded and stimulated by various visual symbols. However, gorgeousness faded, and we couldn’t help thinking, who controlled this feast of perception?

                     Richemont Group brands
   We might as well look at the brand behind the show, the watchmaking giant behind the brand. In the conventional field of vision, we see the individuality of each fine watchmaking brand, each brand is a historical, glittering existence, each with its own charm and uniqueness. But in fact, of the 12 brands participating in the WW, 11 brands except Richard Mille belong to the watchmaking giant-Richemont Group. Because Richemont Group is the largest sponsor of SIHH in Geneva, the industry has always said that SIHH is a special event of Richemont Group. Well, in the ‘Clocks and Miracles’ Asian High Watch Exhibition (WW), which is also hosted by the SIHH Exhibitors Committee in Geneva, Richemont Group also obviously has a special status significance. In this way, if you say ‘WW’ It is no exaggeration for Richemont’s Asian special.
   However, according to the current official information released by SIHH, perhaps the WW in 2016 will change and it is not impossible. SIHH’s official information states that in 2016, the 26th Geneva International Haute Horlogerie Salon will add 9 new independent watch brands. This resolution was initiated by the Swiss Haute Horlogerie Foundation. At that time, the number of participating brands will increase to 24. The new camp adjustment will undoubtedly bring a fresh wind to SIHH, bringing a more diverse and different sense of high-end watches. So, at the same time, will the WW Asia Fine Watch Fair, which is also hosted by the SIHH Exhibitors Committee, be affected in the next year’s camp and change? Everything is speculation, but expectations can be there.
   For Richemont Group, the new camp adjustment is favorable and harmless. Swiss independent watch brands have always been a special presence. They are niche, different in style, and good in quality. The newly added independent watch brands not only will not cause competition pressure on the Richemont brand, but will enhance the style of the watch exhibition. And attention. After all, it’s boring to always write and direct.
From fried rice to miracles
   Those who participated in the two previous ‘Watches and Miracles’ Asian High-end Watch Exhibitions all know that although the so-called Asian watch and clock event is lively and enthusiastic, there is no such thing as a ‘miracle’ in terms of new products. Maybe everyone holds the attitude of testing the water. The first two exhibitions didn’t seem to get enough attention. Most of the products exhibited by the brand were works exhibited on SiHH at the beginning of the year. They were displayed again in Hong Kong. The rhythm of fried rice.
   But maybe because of the two watch exhibitions, the attention and influence of WW has been evident. Through the third watch exhibition that just ended, it can be seen that all brands participating in the show have come out with real things, regardless of the number of new products. Still new quality is a real contest. Even brands will launch special high-tech complex watches and ultra-luxury high-end jewelry watches because of WW, which can be described as men’s watches and women’s watches.

Cartier Clé de Cartier Mysterious Hour Watch

                  Cartier Cristallin High Jewellery Watch
   Cartier performed particularly well in WW, launching 8 new men’s watches with advanced complication functions, each of which is a complex model of high-end watches, advanced models of complex watches, plus 3 absolutely luxurious high-end jewelry watches , In both quantity and quality.

Lange 1815 commemorative honey gold watch

   Lange, which has always been low-key, has launched two masterpieces in the three classic series of 1815, LITTLE LANGE 1 and Saxonia, especially the 1815 series of honey gold commemorative 236.050 watches made of 18K honey-colored gold with innovative materials. Some precious metal materials are unobtrusive and have a unique hue.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Pocket Time Instrument

 Roger Dubuis Excalibur Brocéliande skeleton watch
   Roger Dubuis has launched the very eye-catching Excalibur Spider Pocket Time Instrument pocket watch. The new star-shaped hollow watch brings out the art of hollowing out to the fullest. An Excalibur Brocéliande hollow-out watch for women adds the ivy design of jewellery decoration. Ms. Zhan’s fortitude and softness.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysical Observatory Q8102520

Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysical Observatory Q8108420

   Jaeger-LeCoultre still wins with the ultra-thin master series and the geophysical astronomy series, and at the same time, the ivy mysterious watch of the dating series is sure to impress the heart of female watch fans. Vacheron Constantin moved 57260, the most complicated function in history, to WW.

The watch dial incorporates gem-setting, gold-carving and fine-painting

Van Cleef & Arpels collaborates with artist Nelly Saunier to create fine feather inlays

Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Martin-Pécbeur Azur

   Van Cleef & Arpels continued to write the fairy tale of ‘Donkey of the Donkey Skin’ with hard gems and inlays, and vividly portrayed the birds in the dial with fine feathers. It not only cleverly captured the heavens, but also became the most popular at the WW watch exhibition. A chapter with artistic beauty.

Montblanc Heritage Collection Perpetual Calendar Sapphire Watch

   If the performance of each brand is in line with people’s expectations, Montblanc with a writing instrument culture seems to bring beyond expectations. The newly launched Heritage Collection Perpetual Calendar Sapphire Watch, Viller Series Cylindrical Gossamer. The flywheel night sky Geosphères watch and the heritage precision chronograph series external tourbillon minute chronograph expressing the Gamma Diamond Limited Edition watch are really eye-catching, sighing again and again: ‘Montblanc has been really good these years …’

   It can be seen that the WATCHES & WONDERS ‘Clocks and Miracles’ Asian high-end watch exhibition has begun to the third period, and finally appeared WW’s own ‘miracle’.
Table show play like this
  Of course, at the Asian event of high-end watches and clocks, all brands, media and watchmakers gathered here, watch appreciation is definitely the top priority. However, the style of the Haute Horlogerie exhibition has always been higher than that of other luxury goods industries. It will always prepare something for those who come together, not to mention the SIWH exhibitor committee, the organizer of WW, has always hosted the style of the world. The highest international watch and jewellery salon in Geneva, then at this watch and clock gathering in Asia, the experience and sensory enjoyment will naturally not be inferior.

Exhibitors participate in the ‘Clockwork Class’ event

   In addition to preparing wine, food, and brands for the participants at the WW Asia High-level Watch & Clock Fair, there are also more professional, sharing and experiential watch lessons, introduction to watchmaking, creative exhibitions, and a full range of experiential activities. Participants take full sensory enjoyment beyond the watch. Of course, the more feelings, the heavier the task, and the burdensome reporting task, it is unavoidable to be so disappointed!

   As a watch media, it is also a pride to witness the growth of a young watch exhibition held in its own country, especially the WATCHES & WONDERS ‘Watches and Miracles’ Asian High-end Watch Show has only held a short three sessions. Such influence and attention have been formed. This is not simply the demand data of the Asian watch market. It also represents that our friends around us increasingly want to wear a watch that suits them.

Athens Hammerhead Shark Maxi Nautical Diving Titanium Limited Watch

For centuries, the hammerhead shark has been sailing accurately in the sea in an undefeated position; and the nautical astronomical clock of Athens can lead the sailors to the port accurately. The famous watchmaker, Athens Watch, once again paid tribute to its outstanding maritime history and marine life, and launched the ‘Hammerhead Shark Maxi Marine Diving Titanium Limited Watch’ for its coveted marine watch series.

    The all-weather sports watch is rugged and waterproof to 200 meters. The diameter of the case is 45 mm, and anti-sensitive titanium is used. Each watch is polished with high quality and has an independent number plate, which is precious. The surface is engraved with a hammerhead shark pattern, set off against the azure blue like the ocean blue, showing the mysterious side of the hammerhead shark in the deep sea; the luminous display on the hour markers makes the reading more clear.

Vacheron Constantin Loft Artisan Customized Service

As the saying goes, nothing matters, nothing is perfect. Have you ever regretted your favorite watch: good design, but no dual time zone function; if you can switch to platinum, it is invincible. Today, we introduce the Vacheron Constantin Loft Artisan Customization Service, which will provide you with all the personalized watch customization services.

的 The art of cabinotiers

From the 11th century, the first goldsmith to make Geneva famous was the goldsmith. Since then, their exquisite work has been favored by European royalty. Inspired by this technique, engravers and enamelers quickly established their own powerful trade associations. As a result, watchmakers, diamond cutters, engravers and bracelet makers flooded into Saint-Gervais, the oldest city on the banks of the Rhone in Geneva. After 1650, the number of watchmakers exceeded the number of goldsmiths, and watchmaking became a pillar industry in Geneva.

However, the Saint-Gervais area surrounded by the city walls is all narrow and dark streets. In order to make better use of the midday sun, artisans like to set up workshops on the top floor of the building. These workshops are usually narrow and crowded, sometimes built directly in the attic, with narrow windows lined up densely. The works born here have won a stable reputation for their outstanding quality. Soon, these workshops were called ‘attices’ (closets), and their owners were called attic artisans. These trained attic artisans consider themselves not part of the artisan class, but the nobles of the artisans, or more like a group of artists, have received considerable education and training. In this way, for centuries, daily life, economic and social life in Geneva have left the artistic imprint of the attic artisans in the Saint-Gervais region.

Top distinguished personalised services

In order to reproduce the original intention and charm of 18th century Geneva timepieces, that is, based on mutual communication and creativity, and to meet the growing needs of enthusiastic collectors, Vacheron Constantin launched in 2006 ‘Special Orders for Loft Craftsmen Service. ‘ This service inherits this tradition. Whether it is the ultimate complex requirements or poetic time expression, or the machine-engraved pattern or enamel dial, whether it is Roman numerals or Arabic numerals, whether it is the center second hand or chronograph function, any watch enthusiast expects the features Can be realized. Next, whether the watch is carefully tasted or kept as a secret collection is left to the guests. Either way, this is a very happy thing.

Here, there is no series, no physical products, no product catalog, only a pair of ears to listen to the needs of customers. Everything begins with the story of a custom-made watch that has never been made public. A historical connoisseur requested that a master’s oil painting be reproduced on the dial with a ‘high-temperature open flame’ painted enamel technique; a poetry lover wanted to add a magnificent bell sound to his watch and only on his lover’s birthday each year The time is only once; there is also a watch enthusiast with complex functions who dreams of having a mechanical masterpiece that has never been tried before.

All requirements, from the simplest to the most daring, need to be carefully evaluated by a special team of ‘attic craftsman special order service’. These requirements must be consistent with the watchmaking spirit of Vacheron Constantin in order to be passed.

Watch customization process

Customers can consult and order at Vacheron Constantin’s specialty stores or dealers’ sales stores. Vacheron Constantin promises that all custom-made watches are unique. This service is currently available at Vacheron Constantin’s global flagship store in Geneva and Vacheron Constantin House in Shanghai. After the Vacheron Constantin team responsible for this service confirmed the actual operation possibility after receiving the customer’s request, the staff will follow up with the customer to carry out the design and get the confirmation from the customer. After confirming the final design and relevant details, the guest signed a production contract with Vacheron Constantin and paid a certain deposit. After the contract is signed, guests can learn the current watch production progress through Vacheron Constantin’s online inquiry system and hotline consultation, as well as monthly progress reports. When the watch is completed, the guest delivers the balance and collects the watch.

Exclusive custom watch parts

Today, special customized services such as these are more systematic and professional than before. Customer participation is also more extensive. Basically, most watch components and structures can be customized according to customer requirements, including: the case; the movement and some of the watch’s complex functions and displays; dials, including the use of enamel technology Machine-engraved pattern watchmaking process; design dial overall style, hour scale and hands; strap.

 The production cycle required to order a watch (general refers to the complete cycle from order confirmation to delivery)

If you choose a slight adjustment and modification from the existing watch series: 6 months specially designed a watch using Vacheron Constantin’s existing movements and components: 12 months completely special design, including design, materials, Movements, components, accessories: the cycle depends on the requirements of different orders and the ease of production.

Minjiang Stanton Exclusive Tradition

Back at the beginning, Vacheron Constantin has encouraged watchmakers to create watches based on customer needs, making the design of the watch and the selection of functions and components take a lot of time. It turns out that spending time and effort is worth it, and guests’ needs and dreams for watches are likely to be realized. Collectors of Vacheron Constantin watches know this very well. For example, Henry Graves Jr., a well-known New York banker and watch connoisseur, is an example of Vacheron Constantin’s custom-made watches.

Two other notable figures, King Fouad of Egypt and his son King Farouk, are also keen to collect Vacheron Constantin’s unique watches. A story vividly tells their complexion of specially-made watches: In 1937, when the young Prince Farouk and his mother Queen Nazli visited Geneva, he was eager to visit the factory of Vacheron Constantin. Responsible Charles Constantin took the prince to the factory. While he was surprised by the prince’s extensive knowledge of watches, the prince revealed that he had taken apart many watches and studied how they worked. As early as 1934, during an official visit to Geneva, the city government gave him an exquisite watch made by Vacheron Constantin. There are 13 hands running on the dial: in addition to the regular hour, minute and second hands, there is a chronograph seconds hand, a 30-minute chronograph hand, a double chase chronograph hand, four hands that display the perpetual calendar and the alarm clock hand 3. Power display pointer and spring energy device. This watch also features a minute repeater and moon phase display, consisting of 820 components, including 55 gems.
