Easy To Go Simple, Elegant As It Is, Zhang Zhen Interprets Cartier’s New Clé De Cartier Watch

Whether it is the Lingling Street boy under Yang Dechang’s lens, or the lovers who passed through three eras in ‘The Best Time’, or the boxer Yitiantianhe, ‘Wu Qingyuan’ in ‘The Grand Master’ ‘As one of the most talented male actors in the Asian film industry, Zhang Zhen continues to break through, boldly try new themes and roles, and perform to the extreme. As a pioneer in creative watchmaking, Cartier always upholds the pioneering spirit and leads the era, creating a series of classic timepiece shapes: square Santos, rectangular Tank, round BallonBleu … and the new Cléde Cartier series watches are also round and square The smooth design also carries the bold and innovative brand DNA. This season, Zhang Zhen will perfectly display the new Cléde Cartier, bringing ‘the best time’.

  Zhang Zhen, who was nominated for the Best Actor in the Golden Horse Awards at the age of 15, has always maintained a peaceful attitude and pursued a simple and simple lifestyle in the face of the changing nature of the performing arts circle. He said that his favorite place in the world is his hometown of Taiwan. He loves to climb mountains. He can walk away from the busy city and be surrounded by nature in a few steps in his hometown. He loves visiting Taiwan’s night markets and also loves fried side dishes and braised pork rice. Fading the halo of the Emperor, he is Zhang Zhen who likes to find himself in the nature and peace of mind. Just like the simple and timeless Cléde Cartier watch, it is balanced, clear and restrained, and draws inspiration from contemporary architecture. The simple and compact lines outline the flawless and simple outline. The entire watch is shaped as ’rounded’, with the meaning of ‘elegance’, giving people the feeling of flowing clouds. The simple design aesthetic not only brings new inspiration to Cartier’s watch creation, but also reveals a minimalist nature of life: bravely go forward without forgetting the original intention, advocating pure simplicity and simplicity. Just like Zhang Zhen outside the show, he lifts his weight lightly and lives very ego. Although he is a sword and sword, he interprets real life.

  Zhang Zhen said, “Whether visiting in the city to explore or attend the premiere on the red carpet, the elegant and low-key Clé de Cartier watch design exudes a sense of quietness, which complements my personal style.” Zhang Zhen is from the inside out. The quiet field of strength and self-confidence emanating from it, like the Cléde Cartier watch that he wears on his own, embraces peace and strength in his heart after eliminating all the clutter.

  In this 90-second short film, Zhang Zhen lives in the bustling Hong Kong city, lives in the spotlight and busy schedule, and explores a secret relationship with the heroine. Through a series of casual eyes, mysterious stationery, and short moments, the climax of the story will follow when the couple wearing Cléde Cartier watches meet in the roof garden.

  Cléde Cartier series is another classic of Cartier since the birth of BallonBleu series in 2007. Inspired by modern architectural art, this series presents tactile and visually simple charm with simple innovation, simple contours and simple curves. ‘Clé’ means ‘key’ in French. The design of the new crown of this series is like a key, reminiscent of the ancient tradition of using a key to wind a watch. The watch is available in three sizes, of which 35mm and 40mm models are equipped with Cartier’s self-developed new 1847MC self-winding mechanical movement. ‘1847’ is not accidental, but represents the year the brand was founded.

Let Me See Your ‘core’

In the watch industry, hollowed out has been used in the design of watches. For centuries, watchmakers have sought to perfectly show the power of timepieces. Through openwork or sculpting, they have given the watch a new aesthetic, allowing precision movement components to be displayed in front of our eyes.

Geneva Watch Exhibition Is A Great Stage For The Spread And Display Of Watch Culture And Art

Teacher Bai Yingze can be said to be an old friend of the watch family. Teacher Bai has a deep understanding of the overall history and development of the world’s watch industry. The current situation of the watch industry maintains a sober understanding; this time the watch exhibition watch family was fortunate to invite Teacher Bai to share with you the exhibition experience, let us follow the steps of Teacher Bai to watch this exhibition together.

   The first brand Mr. Bai saw today was Richard Miller. The most impressive thing about him was the model 51-02 swirl tourbillon and 19-02 flower tourbillon. These two watches are particularly interesting. The dial of the Vortex Tourbillon is made of diamonds as ‘vortex’, and then the tourbillon is in the middle, which is exactly combined with the concept of ‘vortex’, and the ‘wheel’ (Tourbillon) is the center of the vortex.

   Feel the tourbillon sinking into the center of the vortex. The flower tourbillon is just the opposite, its tourbillon will rise! A magnolia flower, among the green leaves, the petals can be opened and closed every five minutes, and his petals can be held up. When blooming, the stamens of the petals will come up. It’s amazing.

   Mr. Bai said, ‘Now women’s watches are getting better and better, and the women’s watch market is getting better and better. Many brands this year, including Richard Miller, have made girls’ watches, adding a lot of interesting elements, such as animals Design elements such as flowers and flowers. But the price is very high. The price of the swirl tourbillon is very expensive, which is about 650,000 Swiss francs, and the flower tourbillon is about 800,000 Swiss francs. It is particularly worth noting that Richard Miller now himself It’s very expensive to make a strap and make it by yourself. Generally brands do n’t explain the strap specifically. If you hear a brand keep talking about his strap, you must spend a lot of time on the strap. It’s cost-effective to make. The watch band usually has a special watch band factory. Now, Richard Miller’s metal watch band is very exquisite. Many new technologies have been used. In fact, last year SIHH said that Richard Miller had already said Once, but it wasn’t completely done at that time. This year, it’s all done. ‘

   IWC is one of the most eye-catching brands today. Teacher Bai said, ‘Because this year is the 75th anniversary of IWC’s Portuguese series, three new self-made movements have been made, which are 42, 69, 52 (of which 52 is a movement made for complex watches), which meets the trend that everyone hopes that brands will make their own movements. The homemade movements will be more refined in terms of functions, appearance, polishing and decoration. The models will be targeted at The self-made movement makes a better fit design. Especially since this year’s model has caught the 75th anniversary, it will perform better regardless of the product and the market. ‘

   Koperfus is this year’s 10th anniversary. Teacher Bai said, ‘The brand has demonstrated a history of technologically stunning tourbillons for ten years. This brand has done a good job in the past, but it has been relatively few in the past two years. .Mr. Forsey and Mr. Dufour co-taught a watchmaker student from France, passing on their watchmaking skills. They will work together to produce a student that is not bad, and their teaching watch is also launched, which is very cool, I’m going to check it out. ‘

   Regarding Piaget, he said: ‘Each count puts forward the ultra-thin concept, the king of ultra-thin and so on. Piaget’s new ultra-thin chronograph 883P this year will definitely be a popular on the market. Very light, looks simple and concise, and the chronograph is very comfortable to operate. It is the chronograph with the column wheel, the thinnest chronograph now, and the gold watch from Piaget. It looks like Really great! ‘

  Speaking of Roger Dubuis, teacher Bai said: ‘If from the perspective of technological innovation, Roger Dubuis has not launched a new movement this year, and you can’t see any new ideas. So where is the selling point this time, In the appearance of the watch, many architectural arts are incorporated into it, and the colors are more abundant. ‘

   Speaking of the best watch on the first day, Mr. Bai said, ‘The two brands that are attracting attention today must be Lange and Vacheron Constantin. Lange has two main highlights this time: the first is three questions. ‘ Owl ‘(ZEITWERK),’ Owl ‘is already very popular in the market, and it is selling well. Many people thought it was strange and disliked at the beginning, but its market performance was good, many people wanted .

   The three-question owl introduced this time is very characteristic, the general gong is round. And according to the characteristics of the dial of the owl, the tap of the gong is made into two notches. So this table hammer is knocked inward. I listened to the sound, and the sound quality was good, but I felt the sound was slightly lower, the scene might be too noisy, or the sample table was not real. But in any case this watch is very eye-catching and very good. It also uses a special decimal question method. In addition, Lange proposed that this year marks the 200th anniversary of Lange’s watchmaking skills, which began from 1815 when Mr. Lange was born. So there may be special commemorative models next? ‘

   ‘In addition to Lange, it is particularly worth mentioning that Vacheron Constantin has launched two new series of products this year. The first is Vacheron Constantin’s new series of chronographs. Previously we always criticized Vacheron Constantin’s lack of a homemade chronograph movement. There is also a relatively weak field of sports watches. Now, Vacheron Constantin has made up for this shortfall. Vacheron Constantin chronograph has been developed for seven years (the ultrathin three-minute repeater of the previous year took five years of research and development). , You can imagine how much the brand has changed in the last ten years after its 250th anniversary, so it is a very influential and rising brand among the big brands. ‘This year is the 260th anniversary of Vacheron Constantin.

   ‘The seven years of research and development by Vacheron Constantin are really worthy of watch fans all over the world. It can be said that everything is done in the field of chronographs. From simple chronographs to women’s chronographs to double chasing complex timing A stopwatch has everything. One of the stopwatches is equipped with a dual-track movement, which is the thinnest in the world, the key is automatic, and the beauty of the movement is even more amazing. This shows us the great technological development strength of a big brand. . Of course, there is the Arca clock. Its prototype design is a clock in 1933. If you look at the clock at that time, you must not imagine that it is the clock in 1933. From the look of it, the 1933 clock The table clock should be a modern, up-to-date table clock, all sides are transparent, that is, the movement is completely exposed. ‘

   ‘This brand new clock released by Vacheron Constantin this year uses a new movement with 30 days of power. I want to emphasize that if you buy this clock, you will not only buy a very good clock from Vacheron Constantin, but also A rare treasure, because its shell is made of natural crystal, and it is a whole piece of crystal. It is difficult to obtain the whole piece of crystal. When you look at the side of the clock, it looks like it has angle Broken lines, in fact, are traces of natural crystals. Vacheron Constantin may use various natural crystals in the making of Arca clocks. So in addition to its Hamony chronograph, I am particularly impressed with this time. ‘

   ‘I came down one day today and saw about seven brands, and I feel that they are in line with what I expected a year or two ago: when the market makes adjustments, the brand will not have many big changes. New product launches are not so violent. Although In the past year or so, the luxury watch market has not been very satisfactory. However, in terms of the spread of watch culture and art, it is still very hot. The Geneva watch exhibition was originally doing the spread and display of watch culture and art. ‘ Mao Zhuang)

Schaffhausen, August 2015 – The Portofino family of watches, known for their minimalist design style, adds a new and highly skilled watch-Portofino manual winding One-button chronograph. This is the first ingenious single-button chronograph watch launched by IWC. The slightly convex button on the crown reveals the additional mechanics of this watch and makes it easier to operate. Available in white and red gold, the watch perfectly reflects the essence of luxury and restraint in the Portofino watch series.
Portofino Manual Winding Single Button Chronograph (Model IW515104)

   With the birth of this new complex timepiece, IWC added another chronograph with its own movement to its popular Portofino watch collection. Following the elegant tradition of the Portofino watch family, this new member also exhibits a unique elegance and charming technical subtlety: the most common chronograph watches are currently at ‘2 o’clock’ and ‘4 o’clock There is a button at the ‘clock’, which is also the most classic form of chronograph watch. The Portofino manual winding single-button chronograph watch (model: IW515103 / IW515104) stands out with its unique one-button chronograph mechanism and is capable of timing for up to 60 minutes. The timekeeping button is placed in the crown and is almost imperceptible at first glance. The start, stop and reset of the timer function can be easily achieved by repeatedly pressing this multi-function button. Pressing the button a third time resets all timing displays to zero. This simple switching mechanism also highlights the aesthetic considerations of watch design, revealing the elegance of the watch. Although the additional function of chronograph has been added, the Portofino manual winding single-button chronograph still retains a simple style, and its various functions are only revealed when you watch the game carefully. Simplicity and low profile are the tradition of the Portofino watch family, and the soul of the Portofino watch’s restrained design and classic style since its birth. Georges Kern, CEO of IWC, commented: ‘This watch maintains the perfect balance of function, design and ease of use. Traditional manual watchmaking technology and modern engineering are seamlessly integrated. The result is a new model of fine watchmaking that we can be proud of. ‘
Precision and complex internal mechanical structure
   The newly developed movement of the Portofino manual-winding single-button chronograph watch is a valuable research and development result for both the IWC’s own movement series and the Portofino series. . The 59360 movement inherits the powerful characteristics of the 59000 movement series, and the mechanical timing device placed therein highlights the outstanding charm. The wearer can enjoy the power reserve of 192 hours. After the watch is fully chained, it can ensure the accurate movement of the whole 8 days until it stops automatically. You can check the remaining power of the watch at any time through the power reserve display on the dial between the ‘8 o’clock’ and ‘9 o’clock’ positions. The small dial at 12 o’clock shows the minutes measured by the chronograph function, while the central hand indicates the seconds. The dial has a small seconds at ‘6 o’clock’ and a date display at ‘3 o’clock’. The overall layout is decent and pleasing. The case back also gives you a panoramic view of the movement: through the sapphire glass case back, the IWC-manufactured movement decorated with Geneva stripes and the mechanical timing device in operation are clearly visible. The Portofino manual winding single-button chronograph is available in two models: a white gold case with a rock grey dial and a grey Santoni alligator strap, or an 18K red gold case with a silver plated dial and brown Santoni alligator leather Strap.

Exclusive leather for luxury watches
   For more than three decades since its birth, the Portofino watch family has always played a pivotal role in the IWC watch series. To highlight the unique Italian lifestyle, IWC joined forces with shoe manufacturer Santoni in 2011. This well-known Italian family business is an outstanding representative of ‘elegance and luxury and top quality’, which is exactly the same as the value concept of IWC. Today, Santoni exclusively crafts leather straps for IWC. In the complicated processing steps, each of the carefully-made Santoni straps has been given a unique quaint appearance at the factory, and the hue and gloss are also unique. This process makes leather seem like it has been carefully used for many years, but it is actually made entirely new. Another iconic feature of Santoni is the orange leather lining on the inside of the strap. The beauty and glamour of the Mediterranean living atmosphere are blended into the perfect handcraft of watch and strap.
