These few days are also the days with the strongest Christmas atmosphere, with snow in many places and covered in silver. Although there is no snow in some places, when all kinds of Christmas songs in department stores or shopping malls sound in your ears, do you also want to choose a gift to reward your hard work for a year, or to give your dear her an expressive expression?
Recommend a few watches with the most attention and discussion this year as a gift list. But it must be frankly said that these watches are not easy to buy, because they are so popular that they have already been booked out.
Patek Philippe 6007A-001 Calatrava watch
This is a limited edition watch launched to commemorate the official launch of the brand’s new watchmaking building in 2019. It is also the first new work released by Patek Philippe in 2020. Once it is released, it will be displayed in the watch circle because it has several “Big seller” characteristics: first, the case is made of stainless steel, the second is a limited sale, and the third is a commemorative model. The stainless steel material, limited edition and commemorative models are quite rare in Patek Philippe. The three favorites in one, of course, trigger the collection Home sought after berserk.
From the inside to the outside of the dial are: Barton-style hour and minute hands with a recessed center and luminous coating, a machine-engraved disc with a diamond texture and brand logo, an orbital scale ring with triangle marks, and an inlaid Arabic three-dimensional numerals , The outermost minute scale, the overall gray blue is quite calm and elegant. The case is 40 mm in diameter, and the sapphire crystal on the back of the case is engraved with the Calatrava cross star pattern and the words “New Manufacture 2019”.
Equipped with a self-winding movement, a power reserve of 34 to 45 hours, and a silicon balance spring. The calfskin strap with white stitching is also very distinctive. After embossing, it shows the texture of the textile fabric, which echoes the structure of the dial center. Some people commented that it is a sports style watch. I don’t agree with it. It cannot be a sports style because it is made of stainless steel, because a sports style watch should not only have a water resistance of 30 meters but also be equipped with a leather strap.
Richard Mille RM 72-01 Lifestyle Self Movement Chronograph
Richard Mille, the millionaire super toy of the rich. Publicity, boldness, black technology, and damn expensive, should be everyone’s common understanding of it. This also makes this young brand, established in 2001, squeezed into the top 10 of the Swiss high-end watch sales list.
The watch is equipped with the brand’s first self-developed chronograph movement with a flyback chronograph function. The layout of the disc is very special. The three sub-discs are located at 2 o’clock, 5 o’clock and 9 o’clock, respectively. They are 60-minute timekeeping, 24-hour timekeeping and small seconds. The hands are orange, green and blue. This design and 24-hour timekeeping make it unique.
The movement also has an exclusive patent, called the “swing pinion-type dual meshing mechanism”, which separates the connection operation of the minute wheel and the hour wheel from the second wheel. It sounds complicated, so ignore it. Just know this design It can make the thickness of the watch thinner. Second, it can minimize power loss when starting timing. No matter how long the chronograph function is activated, it can provide a power reserve of 50 hours.
There are 4 versions of the watch in red gold, titanium and white or black ceramic. You definitely want to know the price. I have a friend who is also engaged in watch media work and commented: “Why understand watches? If you have enough capital, it is enough to know good things.”
Tudor Black Bay Blue Bay Series 1858 Navy Blue Watch
The big brother Rolex continues to explode, and the younger brother Tudor is not much better. In recent years, with the Biwan series, the scenery has been infinite. Previously, the case of the Biwan series was 41 mm, and the bronze version reached 43 mm. In 2018, the 39 mm Biwan series 1958 was launched. The proportion is just right, allowing those with slender wrists to handle it.
For this purpose, the brand specially developed a new movement MT5402. The previous MT5601 movement has a diameter of 33.8 mm and a MT5602 movement with a diameter of 31.8 mm and a thickness of 6.5 mm. The MT5402 movement has a diameter of 26 mm and a thickness of only 4.99 mm, which is obviously smaller. , But the power reserve is also maintained at 70 hours, equipped with silicon hairspring, certified by the Swiss official observatory.
The 2020 new work uses the brand’s iconic color “Navy Blue”. The matt blue dial is matched with a blue anodized aluminum unidirectional rotating outer ring. The numbers and scales on it are silver-plated, and brushed stainless steel and The luminous coating is very good, the contrast is not too strong. The watch won the “Challenge Award” of this year’s Geneva Haute Horlogerie Awards. This is the fifth time that the Biwan series has won since participating in the competition in 2013. It is commendable.
There are 3 choices of steel chain, leather belt and textured strap. If you like a sense of weight, you can choose a steel chain; if you want to reduce the burden on your wrist, you can choose a belt or a woven strap.
Fortunately, I ordered one of the top replica watch, of course it is not a watch with hundreds of thousands or millions. Sometimes I think about it, since these watches are so hard to find, let’s not join in the fun.
