French Ecology Of The Global Watch Market

The French watch industry has bowed its knees, and Swiss watchmaking brands can still rely on their reputation and clever pricing to surpass local products and make a strategic response to a market that is struggling to regain their foothold. French watches and clocks have not made the global market hot, far from it. Not because France does not sell watches, in terms of sales, watches are about a third of jewelry. For countries where jewelry plays an important cultural role, this is a considerable number. In fact, the proportion of watches in 2016 dropped by 6 percentage points.

   Looking closely at the statistics, the situation is even less optimistic. Sales of watches over 5,000 euros have fallen sharply (-10%); in the lower price range, between 1,000 and 5,000 euros, the situation is even worse, with a drop of 14%; the obvious conclusion is that the French bought a lot Cheap watches, the only growth in watch sales is in the price range of 100 euros to 300 euros.
Action, Response: Entry Level

Seiko Presage 3-Hand Automatic and Baume & Mercier

   So how do Swiss watch brands deal with this disappointing situation? It’s very logical to provide value for money products. For example, the Baume & Mercier Chrysler watch has made significant progress in 2016. Seiko has a similar situation. The Presage three-hand automatic watch is only 479 euros, which is great value and sales are skyrocketing.

Anonimo Nautilo and Frederique Constant Heartbeat

   Anonimo, although not as famous as the above two brands, Nautilo watches (stainless steel case, Sellita movement) for 1,950 euros are well received. Thanks to its precise and ingenious pricing strategy, Frederique Constant Heartbeat watches have been the best-selling models in France and many other countries.
   What about smart watches? Tag Heuer does a great job. At present, Connected smart watches are selling in France. Although the marketing budget almost guarantees this result, if it is so easy, why other participants have failed to replicate it.

Hublot Big Bang stainless steel / ceramic watch and classic fusion titanium chronograph

   However, some ‘cold-resistant perennials’ did not appear to be affected by the turmoil. Continuing the hot trend in 2015, the Hublot Big Bang series of stainless steel / ceramic watches are not only the best-selling products in France but also in the global market, and the classic fusion series titanium chronograph follows closely behind. The former sells for 13,400 euros and the latter sells for 14,800 euros, which are both lower than Hublot’s average selling price of 20,000 euros. France loves Hublot, yes, but there are restrictions.

Hermès Cape Cod watch

   A similar phenomenon is happening at the earl. In 2016, one of Piaget’s most famous models repeated a convincing performance. This year, the Altiplano series 38 mm rose gold watch, equipped with the legendary Calibre 430P movement, is full of limelight. Lange’s situation is similar. Lange 1 watches still dominate, although local customers prefer the moon phase. Richard Mill’s RM 011 series (including RM 011, RM 11-01, RM 11-02, and most recently RM 11-03) is still the leader in sales. Hermes’ enduring Cape Cod series watches refuse to give up the top position, as do Girard Perregaux’s long-established 1966 and Laureato series watches.
Fine watchmaking: a difficult year and difficult conclusions
   The sales of fine timepieces are significantly smaller, but the sales are much larger. However, some brands still offer some stand-alone timepieces. For example, Roger Dubuis’s best-selling model in France in 2016 is the Excalibur 42 automatic skeletonized watch with RD820SQ movement.

HYT H4 Metropolis watch

   However, when it comes to independent brands, it is not easy to draw meaningful conclusions. Distribution can be more uneven and tend to focus on a particular market area (or areas), which can mask strong differences. As far as independent fine watch brands (Kelly Tianyin, Coperfus, MCT and Romain Gauthier) are concerned, the sales volume is not large, because the production is already small. For example, a Julien Coudray 1518 watch costs up to 400,000 Euros. This means that the company does not have to sell a lot to ensure that it works properly. This year, the H4 watch surpassed the H1 for the first time, becoming the first choice of local HYT fans. All in all, creativity remains a powerful driver of growth in the watchmaking industry-as long as it’s affordable.

Performance Of Watchmaking Technology Seeing The Infinite Universe Gp Girard Perregaux Brings A Number Of Classic Watch Masterpieces To Explore The Mysteries Of The Stars

The boundaries of the earth can never limit human curiosity. Entering 2019, which is 13.8 billion years after the birth of the universe, Girard Perregaux watched the endless dark universe to explore its light, shadow, and mystery. The dark universe is full of human imaginations, and everything that humans cannot imagine. These unfathomable secrets bring endless inspiration, inspiring this high-end Swiss watch brand to transcend the boundaries of time and space. The new spirit, with the theme ‘Earth to Sky’, recreates a series of classic watch designs that the brand is proud of.
   1966 Series Skywalker Watch

   Girard-Perregaux was inspired by the 149 million kilometer journey between the earth and the sky, redesigned the classic 1966 series watch, and used the number ‘149’ to represent this fantasy journey as a limited number. This classic watch inherits the characteristics of the original noble and elegant, while cleverly using blue and black tones, it leads the wearer and the viewer across the galaxy to the universe sky. Black is the main color of this classic. It has profound depth and unlimited potential. Whether it is the DLC-coated sandblasted stainless steel case, the alligator leather strap, or the date display window is as dark as the night sky, there is a shining light penetrating the vast darkness. The delicate curved dial is made of azure blue, echoing the origin of the earth’s alias ‘water polo’. The almost translucent blue is also reminiscent of a series of stunning works created by the brand’s founder Jean-François Bautte with blue Geneva enamel.
   Bridges Cosmos Watch

   The symmetrical arrangement of the double spheres on the Cosmos watch is a reflection of order and aesthetics. This model comes from the iconic Bridges Golden Bridge series. It combines the tourbillon under the black titanium bridge, the day and night display of the earth, the sky map, and the complication of world time. It is a perfect combination of romance and machinery. The watch is equipped with the brand-new GP09320-1098 movement developed by the brand. The movement beats vigorously, causing Cosmos, the ‘universe’, to precisely run on orbit. The twelve constellations are highlighted with a liquid luminous element, so that the Cosmos watch can fulfill its astronomical duties even in the dark night. In addition, a sphere cleverly displays this constellation that is invisible to the naked eye at noon on the dial, and displays the constellation that is visible to the naked eye at midnight on the case back. Cosmos watches provide interpretations from two perspectives: the interstellar space seen from the surface of the earth, and the blue earth seen in the atmosphere of the earth. This duality is reflected in the light characteristics of Cosmos watches. Its night is quite different from its day. The dazzling beauty of the stars glows in the dark, carrying a deep connotation. Such a mechanical device achieves such a dazzling night, it is incredible.
   Laureato Laurel Collection Absolute

The sun-dial dial fades from the dark blue in the center to the dark black on the periphery, and the white inner bezel of the luminous element makes the matte black hour indexes more three-dimensional. Walking in the blue and the darkness-Laureato’s Laurel Collection Absolute watch and GP Girard Perregaux’s 2019 theme ‘Skywalker’ fit seamlessly.
   Laureato Laurel Crown Skywalker skeleton watch

   The mysterious black universe combined with the earth’s azure color, and ceramic enveloping the charming hollow movement, create a sculptural outline, forming a contemporary, masculine, charming and confident and unique style. The Laureato Laurel Collection “Skywalker” skeleton watch not only possesses high-level complex functions, but also embodies exquisite Art Deco accomplishments. It has a black ceramic case with black ceramic links on the strap and a matte and brushed interlaced surface. The structure of the movement is therefore prominent, and the lines are thoroughly displayed, achieving a masterpiece in watchmaking style and structure. It is rich in content but light and transparent, with straight lines and arcs interlaced, blue inside corresponds to black outside. All this constitutes the Laureato Laurel series ‘Skywalker’ skeleton watch.
   Bridges Golden Bridge Neo Bridges Skywalker Watch

   The new Bridges Golden Bridge series Neo Bridges automatic winding watch subtly blends tradition and innovation, reinterpreting the movement structure more than 150 years ago in a flexible and vivid way. This mechanism keeps pace with the times, and today it has become one of Girard-Perregaux classics. This year, as one of a series of ‘Skywalker’ -themed watches, the device was once again made of titanium, with a black DLC coating on the 45 mm case. The contemporary modification process highlights the construction style of the movement structure. For example, the clockwork box cover and the miniature balance wheel are coated with blue PVD coating, while the delicately curved bridges and bridges are processed with black PVD coating.
   Bridges Quasar Watch

   The contradictory combination of light and darkness is exactly the true portrayal of Girard-Perregaux Quasar. Quasar means ‘quasar’, the unusually bright area surrounding the black hole in the center of the galaxy. This case was released this year at the ‘Watches & Wonders’ 2019 in Miami, USA. The transparent sapphire crystal case showcases the complex and delicate internal structure of the tourbillon movement, bringing almost no weight. The hollow structure of the GP9400-1035 movement is perfectly displayed, like the stars you can admire from a telescope-clear and delicate, fresh and alive.
   Cat’s Eye Celestial Night Sky Moon Phase Watch

   The crescent moon, the surplus moon, the waning moon, or the full moon, the moon phase is profitable, and the cycle is recurring. The moon is a special existence in human imagination, and it is also the source of many forces. The dome design of the Cat’s Eye Celestial moonlight watch creates a sense of the sky, and the aura is fully interpreted to shine the starry sky-beside the moon phase display and on the mother-of-pearl disc, you can enjoy its bright starlight, adding to the entire design A deep mystery. Equipped with a patented movement, this model inherits the fine watchmaking tradition in design, development, manufacture and decoration.

Baucherie Marie Dragon Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Is A Model Of Timepiece Art

In 46 BC, the Egyptian astronomer Sosigenes formulated the basis of the modern calendar: a year is divided into twelve months, of which seven months have 31 days, four months have 30 days, and one month has 29 days, or 365.25 days a year, one day in four years. Later, the Roman Emperor Nishizawa extended the Julian calendar to all parts of the world, but the disadvantage of this calendar is that there is still an error of 0.0078 days per year. By 1582, Pope Gregory XIII proposed reforms, and any year that was a multiple of 100 but not a multiple of 400 did not have a leap year, which resolved the problem of errors; the Gregory calendar, named after it, still measures time. this.
    In this calendar, the number of days in different months is different. Normal mechanical calendar watches will only jump from day 30 to day 31. If the next month is less than 31 days, manually adjust to day 1.
    However, not only can the perpetual calendar watch automatically handle the days of the month and month, but also the leap year is accurate, which involves extremely complex mechanical structures, so the perpetual calendar is also known as one of the most advanced watchmaking technology. Today’s perpetual calendar system does not need to be manually adjusted until 2100. Although 2100 is a multiple of 100, it is not a multiple of 400, so it is not a leap year.
   For watch enthusiasts who love the perpetual calendar craftsmanship, the Bucherer Marie Long Perpetual Calendar Chronograph is a model of the art of timepieces: a date display at 12 o’clock, a week display at 6 o’clock, a month and leap year display at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock The moon phase of the position is accurate for 100 years. This unique Bucherer movement also has a flyback timing function. The outer edge of the dial has a speedometer scale, which is consistent with the brand’s philosophy of focusing on practical functions. The Maliron Perpetual Calendar Chronograph is based on a movement developed by the Vaucher movement factory, but the details are modified in accordance with the original nature of Bucherer.
    Although the Marly Dragon Perpetual Calendar Chronograph is multifunctional, it has been carefully arranged by the designer, using different levels and modifications to make the layout and display clear and easy to read: for example, the hour timer at 6 o’clock and the minute timer at 9 o’clock And the small seconds at 12 o’clock, which are respectively embedded in the slightly concave calendar display, with black lines to delineate different scales.
    The central chronograph seconds hand, three-dimensional hour markers, the unique characters and numbers of Bucherer, the sword-shaped luminous hours, the minute hand, and three implicit black chronograph indicators put a new look on traditional perpetual calendar functions. The elegant silver dial is matt-finished in the central part, and the timer and minute scales are matte-treated to present a pleasing gloss contrast; the moon phase is lined with a silver moon on a carbon black background, and it also sees a rich contemporary design touch.
    The noble rose gold or stainless steel case has a timeless beauty. The satin-finished and polished finishes are pleasing to the eye, and the lugs are more contoured; the bezel is inlaid with a curved sapphire crystal; the crown and polished. The chronograph button is simple and elegant; from the back of the sapphire crystal, you can see the exquisite craftsmanship of the mechanical movement and the 22K rose gold rotor.
    The Mali Long Perpetual Calendar Chronograph stainless steel model is limited to 150 pieces, and the rose gold model is only 100 pieces worldwide, which is even more valuable. Watch collectors place the most emphasis on traditional craftsmanship, practical functions and unique and timeless appearance. The outstanding new work of Marcellon Perpetual Calendar Chronograph by Bucherer will surely win the connoisseur’s favor.

People have long realized that the sunrise and sunset times are different in different regions, such as when Beijing is 12 noon and London is 4 am. When distance is no longer an issue for people, the issue of time is highlighted. In 1884, the International Meridian Conference was held in Washington, and the world was officially divided into 24 time zones. Countries have since adopted world time. At the same time, watchmakers are fiercely competing to develop watches that can display time in multiple time zones. Cartier is no exception. The Calibre de Cartier multi-time zone watch, which was unveiled at the 21st Geneva Watch Fair, is a leader in this field. This is a veritable must-have watch for travellers, and a sweet gift from Cartier to business travelers. This watch has three highlights:
One of them is the clear and easy to read multi-time zone display.
Calibre de Cartier multi-time zone watch provides all practical information for travelers. The sun and moon symbols on the dial below the center of the watch indicate the time of departure and the main hand of the watch indicates the time of destination.
The second highlight is the city dial on the side of the watch.
目的地 You can enlarge the destination display through the magnifying glass on the side, this design can avoid the inconvenience caused by the dial because of too many instructions. As long as you press the turn button, you can read the time of 24 reference time zone cities. Each time you press the turn button, you can display each city and the corresponding time, and the corresponding time between the reference city and the travel city.
的 The last major innovation of the Calibre de Cartier multi-time zone watch is the ability to switch between summer and winter time. During the five months when daylight saving time is implemented, you can switch between daylight saving time and winter time by simply reading different levels of time on the city dial.
Such convenient and clever functions are derived from the powerful core of Calibre de Cartier watches-9909 MC automatic mechanical movement. The 9909 MC movement is completely developed and manufactured by Cartier Workshop. It is the first movement with multi-time zone function in Cartier’s advanced watchmaking series. It is also a movement specifically designed for travelers with multi-time zone and city display. Dial, (departure) day / night and time difference indication function.
Not only the inner core is strong, the shape of the Calibre de Cartier multi-time zone watch is even more impressive. It has all the classic elements of Cartier watches: Roman numerals, ‘minute track’ scale, blue steel hands and convex round sapphire. The 45 mm case is extremely male-oriented, and the raised bezel on the case is soft and smooth, in sharp contrast to the strong case. It slopes naturally at 28 degrees to the dial and extends up to 120 dials. The fine details are reminiscent of clock gears. The bezel extends to the dial, the huge Roman numeral 12, the crown shoulders and the side magnifying glass at 9 o’clock are impressive.

Challenge gravity-Rotonde de Cartier Astrorégulateur celestial constant center of gravity device watch
Gravity is the foundation of human survival, but it is also the culprit that causes the time error of the watch. Gravity can shift the center of gravity of the balance with the hairspring, causing the watch to be inaccurate. Controlling gravity has always been one of the biggest challenges for watchmakers. Seeing ‘challenge gravity’, 80% of our minds think of the word ‘tourbillon’. Yes, the tourbillon is the oldest and most common way to overcome this problem. The tourbillon frame rotates once a minute, and it passes through all the centers of gravity by rotating as much as possible, and offsets the influence of gravity to avoid the running deviation when the watch is in the vertical position. So, besides the tourbillon, is there any other way to solve the effect of gravity on the watch?
For this question, Cartier gave a perfect answer in 2011, that is, Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Astrorégulateur celestial constant center of gravity device watch. Abandoning the tourbillon, this watch uses a new method to challenge gravity. This is the 9800 MC movement developed by Cartier. So what’s so special about the 9800MC movement?

9800 MC movement
First, it is an alternative solution to the problem of gravity.
9800 MC movement is a movement that can replace the tourbillon. Since the isochronism of the vibration depends on the regularity of the vibrator frequency, and this regularity will be disturbed by the gravity of the earth, the ideal situation is to ensure that the vibrator always has only one center of gravity regardless of the vertical state. Based on this principle, Cartier conceived an innovative anti-gravity system, that is, using the ‘rotor’ component to return it to the same vertical position every time. On the 9800 MC movement, the escapement, the rotor and the small second hand are driven by the rotor, and the rotor can always return to the same position, thereby avoiding the adverse effect of gravity on the timing when the watch is in the vertical position. By adjusting the action of the oscillating weight in this fixed position, the watchmaker was able to make the working platform of the Astrorégulateur celestial constant center of gravity device movement, no matter what vertical state, the gravity can avoid interference with the timing. This is a major innovation in watch design. Compared with the simple tourbillon frame, the rotor can drive and carry five times more parts than the tourbillon frame.
Second, its differential technology system ensures continuous and accurate timing.
Wrist movement brings different strength to the escapement. However, these powers must be corrected to ensure that the escapement runs at a constant speed, which is a necessary condition for accurate watch timing. Therefore, senior watch designers invented a system consisting of two differentials that converts the power transmitted by the wrist to a constant speed, ensuring the regular movement of the second hand with the rotor, and especially ensuring the accurate timing of the watch.
Third, it is equipped with platinum inertia weight can be used to automatically wind the movement.
The rotor is equipped with a platinum inertia weight, which can return to the same position by its own weight to ensure automatic winding. This is a unique two-way winding mechanism: the movement can be wound no matter which direction the rotor is rotated.
To complement this unique movement, Cartier equips it with a 50 mm diameter niobium titanium case. Niobium titanium weighs only 55 grams and is comfortable to wear. Although the freestyle escapement makes the watch more susceptible to collision damage, the niobium titanium case can offset the impact of the collision as much as possible. Because of the physical properties of the niobium-titanium alloy, severe impact can be converted into the same energy, but it is softer and more cushioned. Previously, niobium-titanium alloys were only used on ID One de Cartier concept watches.

Powerful, lightweight, atmospheric and comfortable-Calibre de Cartier Astrotourbillon
This unique watch has a large diameter of 47 mm to offset its weight with extremely lightweight titanium, and the surface of the case and movement are carefully modified. A masterpiece of Cartier’s fine watchmaking, limited edition of 100 pieces.
AsThe Astrotourbillon celestial tourbillon movement, which was introduced in 2010, was developed by Cartier Workshop for five years, and has now become the source of power for the Calibre de Cartier watch series. The 9451MC movement has a tourbillon frame with built-in escapement and balance springs. Like a traditional tourbillon, this frame is driven by a third gear in a gear transmission system. The escapement wheel system relies on the escapement pinion to rotate around the fixed second hand gear (the fourth gear in the gear transmission system).
As can be seen from the name of this watch, Astrotourbillon’s celestial rotating tourbillon is his most watchful part. Like the climax of a wonderful movie, it must be missed. This astronomical tourbillon, called Astrotourbillon, stands out because of its several unique characteristics.

Calibre de Cartier Astrotourbillon
First of all, its frame is located in the center of the movement, so a special axis of rotation is required. For this reason, from the dual barrel of the movement to the display of the hour and minute hands, the entire gear transmission system must be redesigned.
Secondly, the balance wheel and escape wheel of the Astrotourbillon astronomical tourbillon are not set on the rotation axis of the frame, but on one side of the frame, which is aligned with the rotation axis. It is this special design that creates a unique visual effect for the watch.
Finally, the entire tourbillon frame is located above the movement in the middle of the two dials, instead of being directly integrated with the movement like a traditional tourbillon. The central design of this tourbillon is unprecedented, and it has the dual effects of aesthetics and technology. Visually, the slender frame rotates around the entire dial every minute, and the eccentric balance bridge is designed in the shape of an arrow to indicate the number of seconds. Technically, to ensure the balance of the frame, a platinum balance weight was added on the other side of the frame, hidden under the central dial. In order to effectively control the inertia generated during rotation, the weight of the frame must be limited (the total weight of the frame is 0.39 grams, excluding the weight of the balance weight). Therefore, lightweight titanium is used as the material.

This watch is most prominently displayed by the dial-back hour on the timer. Each revolution of the central chronograph hand moves the minute timer at 9 o’clock by one tick. After the hand passes a circle, the power will be transmitted to the hour timer set between 7 o’clock and 8 o’clock through a well-designed transmission mechanism, and the hour hand will move down the semicircular scale . When the hour timer hand moves to the last scale, it immediately jumps back to its original position and begins a new journey again. Callback display is exactly the biggest feature of Plavi ChronoGrade different from traditional timers.
Another outstanding quality is reflected in the fly-back function. The timer can be restarted by pressing a button without stopping the operation. The dual-window display of power reserve and date complements the perfect functions of this unique timepiece. After winding, the disc rotates in a clockwise direction. When the mainspring chain is released, the hands on the disc move in a natural direction (clockwise), that is, the hands are not dial-back. For the first time, Bucherer integrated this sophisticated technology, combined with a timer, a large calendar display, and a barrel-shaped case, to create the Plavi T-Graph. It is worth noting the minute circle in the timing function. The timer scale is located on the inner edge, and the stop-seconds hand can be read quickly with an accuracy of 1/4 second.
