Vacheron Constantin Asia Pacific Director: Why Do Chinese People Buy High-end Watches?

At the 796 Huaihai Middle Road, Shanghai, the home of Vacheron Constantin, Julien Tornare sat opposite and talked. ‘In the future, we will open more brand image stores like Shanghai Vacheron Constantin House,’ he said.
As the new Managing Director of Vacheron Constantin in the Asia Pacific region, Julien Tornare has too much expectation for this hot market in China, and his own actions are equally aspirational. He has led the brand’s US market for 6 years, and his achievements are obvious to all. The Chinese market is undoubtedly a wider stage.

Teach Chinese to fall in love with complex functions
At this year’s Basel Watch Fair, many brands launched simple, ultra-thin watches, which has become the biggest trend of this year’s timepieces. The reason why this cannot be ignored is that Chinese consumers prefer this type of appearance, so the ultra-thin trend is largely to cater to the appetite of Chinese people and pry open Chinese wallets. It is nicknamed ‘Chinese Watch’. But these ultra-thin watches look simple, but they are not simple. As Julien Tornare puts it: ‘It’s not easy to do. It’s very difficult to make. You need to put that multifunctional and parts into such a thin watch. In the shell. ‘
In fact, what we want to say is that under this trend, will Vacheron Constantin produce more simple watches in order to conform to the Chinese market? Because this brand has always been known for its complex watches.
Julien Tornare’s answer is: No. ‘We produce watches not only to please the Chinese market, but to have our own brand philosophy. We will do some positioning for our products according to customer needs, but the core brands will not change, that is, in terms of technology, design, and craftsmanship. In terms of application, the Vacheron Constantin tradition is the mainstay, and it has continued. He added, ‘Each brand is its own DNA. The most important thing is to maintain it, not to modify it arbitrarily according to market demand. For example, some watch brands It is famous for its sports models. One day it suddenly made some ultra-thin and small watches, and the market may not be able to accept it all at once. ‘
As we all know, manufacturing complex-function watches is very difficult technology, but not everyone can understand the profound beauty. More people see not the doorway, but the excitement, and they do n’t know why they need to spend millions. Go buy a complication watch. ‘I think a better way for consumers to understand complex functions is to create interactive opportunities and pass on the knowledge of complex functions to them.’
Taking Vacheron Constantin as an example, they will regularly hold small parties and exchange dinners for VIP customers, and invite watchmakers to demonstrate and introduce complex functions on the spot, such as tourbillons. Masters will introduce how tourbillons are made and their functions in watches. What is it, what are the differences in the production process of each brand. ‘Customers can understand the birth process of high-complexity watches and the story behind it by communicating with the master. This is the most intuitive way to understand the product. Many customers first buy simple models, and then buy slightly more complicated ones. Buying high complexity, this gradual process is also our hope to lead customers to understand the mystery of the watch step by step, so that they know what is the significance behind spending so much money on a watch. ‘

Americans like personality, Chinese prefer identity
Leading the US market for 6 years, Julien Tornare is absolutely familiar with this market, and although it has been only half a year in the Chinese market, it is clearly not unfamiliar. He has been able to sum up the differences between the two markets. ‘This may be because the traditions of the two nations are different.’
First of all, people in the two markets have shown very different interests in the cultural heritage behind the watch brands. Americans are not very cold about this. ‘A lot of people do n’t want to explore and understand more about the products behind them. They buy a product according to their own needs, while the Chinese are completely the opposite. Julien Tornare believes that This has something to do with the long history of the Chinese nation. ‘Chinese consumers are particularly willing to understand the true essence and cultural significance behind a brand through a watch. ‘
Second, consumers in both countries have different preferences for watch types. Americans prefer things with a flamboyant personality, so they prefer large dials, timekeeping functions, and dot sports. They do not have high requirements for materials, such as pink rose gold or any rare metal, and they are not particular about it. ; Chinese people like simple, traditional, especially small round, in the material is more biased towards precious metals, which can represent noble or their own identity.
‘In the Chinese market in the past few months, I have also seen that many Chinese consumers may not be the actual target shopping group of Vacheron Constantin or other high-end watch brands. For example, their spending power is not enough, but their love and sentiment for high-end watches is still Existing, they are willing to spend time and energy to accumulate wealth and wait for one day to buy the products of high-end watch brands. Once owned, this watch is not only for them to wear, but also a status symbol. ‘- –

Where The Heart Goes Finally, Fiyta Releases Master Series Dunhuang Theme Enamel Watch

The starry sky and artistic aesthetic world can shake our hearts for a long time. ‘Dun, Da Ye; Huang, Sheng Ye.’ Dunhuang, which has a history of more than two thousand years, is a brilliant pearl on the ‘Silk Road’. Eastern and Western civilizations are intertwined and collided here. Numerous devout messengers and artists have come a long way Let Dunhuang reach an unprecedented peak. The miracle of Chinese culture remains behind the door of a cave, revealing the heart of the Oriental people calmly.

  Adhering to the pursuit of professional watchmaking and cultural aesthetics, Fiyta launched the Master Series Dunhuang-themed enamel watch, which combines the handcrafted silk enamel craftsmanship and fine watchmaking essence, and reproduces the extreme piety and imagination of the world for thousands of years. Between square inches, the eternal brilliance of Dunhuang is reproduced.

  Flying watch: the wind is the atmosphere, and the flair has the charm

  Throughout the ages, people have never ceased to yearn for the sky. As a watch brand with many cooperations in the aerospace field, Fiyta has a long history of relationship with the sky. This time, it traces the ancient Feitian culture once again, and it will travel around the world. The magnificent imagination and romantic feelings of the sky are integrated into the art of timepieces.

  Feitian is a heavenly man who supports the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas with songs, dances, and fragrant flowers. It originated from the gods and gods of ancient Indian mythology. They used the flying ribbons to fly in the air, as the most representative image in Dunhuang murals. Flying across ten dynasties, it has become a symbol of auspiciousness.

  Collections in pairs: one left and one right, contrasting each other

  The flying mural ‘Bodhi Tree Double Flying Sky’ in Cave 321 of Mogao Grottoes in Dunhuang is famous all over the world. Fiyta presents it on the flying pair of tables, one left and one right, reflecting each other, expressing the beauty of ‘always at your side’ Vision.

  This watch, between square inches, uses a skillful filigree enamel technique to outline the flying shape: or playing the flute with both hands, or holding the lotus lightly with one hand, the figure is light, and the streamer stretches with the wind and slowly falls. The fine details of the craftsmanship, as well as the soft eyebrows of the sky, the gorgeous crown and armbands, are all clearly visible. As the poet of the Tang Dynasty Li Bai chanted: ‘Vegetarian hands hold hibiscus, step into space in imaginary steps. The neon dresses sway wide bands and float to heaven.’

  Unique disk design: ‘eccentric’ and ‘independent needle’

  Around this theme, Fiyta artistically presents two different dials on the Feitian watch:

  It is inevitable to be partial to the things you like. Fiyta ingeniously adjusted the position of the movement to present an asymmetrical ‘eccentric’ disk surface, which is not only unique, but also provides more room for enamel craftsmanship.

  The ‘independent hand’ dial surface creatively transforms the structure of the dial and hands. The entire dial, the minute hand stands out, and the half-moon window at 6 o’clock reveals the Chinese character dial. As time passes, it is displayed for 24 hours; interestingly, Feitian Holding the lotus and bodhi leaf instrument pointed at the position, the number displayed is the current hour. In this way, the hour and minute hands are independent and interdependent, and the reading method is very interesting.

  Hu Xuanwu Watch: When the dance is shocking, the square inch is the world

  ‘Dances turn sharply like the wind, which is commonly known as Huxuan.’ Huxuanwu is one of the most popular dances in the Tang Dynasty. It is preserved in the pens of many literati and writers. Tang poet Bai Juyi once described it as follows: , Returning to the snow and drifting into the flamboyant dance. ‘Today, the world can still think of the magnificent prosperity of the world from the agile dancing posture, and the open and free mind of the big age.

  Hu Xuan Wu watch, selected from the classic scene of Cave 320 at Mogao Grottoes in Dunhuang, a Hu Xuan girl with a high head and a collar, a carmine wide skirt, and her left foot standing on a very regional feature On the carpet, holding a long blue and blue scarf around the arm, the skirt is curved due to continuous and rapid rotation, non-stop rotations, unrestrained, unrestrained, and flying belts, condensing the dancer’s momentary posture of rapid rotation.

  Nine-Colored Deer Watch: Deer King Bunsen, Sincerity

  Nine-colored deer king is one of the benevolent beasts and beasts of the Buddha who was reincarnated to do good deeds in the past life of the Buddha. It is the embodiment of beauty, kindness and integrity. It is mysterious and noble, shining with dazzling light and awe-inspiring vigor. The mural ‘Deer Bundesus’ at Dunhuang Cave 257 is a work of art with a strong Buddhist color. It shows the miracle of the Buddha’s reincarnation into the deer king and rescues a drowning man. It reincarnates Buddhist love, good deeds, and karma. And so on. Doctrine runs through it.

  Nine-colored deer watch, carefully selected mineral glaze, showing a fuller and more pure Chinese painting color. On the dial, the three deer live in harmony with the rivers and mountains, and have a beautiful mood. One has a fur color like snow, with white antlers on his head, and a smart ribbon; pure and serene; one with white as the main color, and the green color and flint on the deer to show its nine colors; and the other with flint color The deer’s round body has smooth lines, four hoofs, and strong dynamics.

  Handmade silk enamel: the rareness of the world, the beauty of being handed down

  Enamel is the art of time. Since ancient times, it has been a royal art used by the imperial family. It is one of the ancient craftsmanship of traditional luxury goods. It pays special attention to the many delicate combinations of painting and hand-fired. In the Dunhuang-themed enamel watch, each enamel surface requires 53 processes such as blank making, reeling, point coloring, firing, and polishing. It took 2 months to achieve success.

  First, the master craftsman hand-drawn the pattern, using the 24K gold wire with a diameter of only 0.04 millimeters, to elaborate the complex outlines of Dunhuang murals such as Feitian, Hu Xuanwu, and nine-colored deer among the square inches of the sterling silver floor. The 42-mm dial is filled with dozens of different enamel glazes. Finally, it is glazed layer by layer, dozens of times of calcination and cooling, in the high temperature of 800-900 degrees Celsius, iterates repeatedly, so that the color continues to be intense until it shines dazzlingly.

  The essence of the entire process lies in the subtle control of time and temperature, and even minor deviations and flaws will lead to the abandonment of previous achievements. A perfect enamel dial, nine points is the craftsmanship and experience of the enamel master, and one point is luck, which is rare and hard to find. Fiyta’s Dunhuang-themed enamel watch is limited to 10 pieces each.

  Equipped with modified Swiss mechanical movement: unique ‘Lotus’ pendulum

  The Dunhuang-themed enamel watch, equipped with a modified Swiss mechanical movement, is thin and has an excellent winding feel, with a 42-hour travel time. The movement’s pendulum is more carefully decorated with a lotus pattern composed of bodhi leaf, which symbolizes the lotus bodhi. ‘Immaculate’ represents the supreme honor and has the meaning of ‘all perfection and compassion.’ The transparent bottom cover gives a wonderful overview of the rhythm of the lotus machine.

  More details, keep improving

  The precious case is made of 18K yellow gold and 18K rose gold. Under the reflection of the precious metal luster, the bezel is decorated with delicately carved coin patterns, which are carefully polished to present a unique beauty of light and shadow.

  With a luxurious and rare crocodile leather strap, it adds a sense of dignity. Over time, the crocodile belt will become more shiny and flexible.

Lange Zeitwerk Minute Repeater: Set A Milestone For The Future

ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER is the first mechanical watch that combines a skip word display and a decimal minute repeater. Anthony de Haas, director of product development at Lange and a passionate percussionist, showed off his masterpiece in front of a jazz drum and talked about this melodious watch masterpiece.

Anthony de Haas while drumming, elaborating on the creative philosophy of ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER
   Why did you choose to develop the first Lange minute repeater watch based on ZEITWERK?
   In fact, GRAND COMPLICATION was Lange’s first watch with a minute repeater. After the launch of this piece, everyone estimates that our next minute repeater watch will be applied to classic models, such as 1815. That’s why we decided to surprise everyone. Furthermore, in terms of technology, the design of ZEITWERK is very suitable for adding sounding devices. The unique structure of the movement makes the layout of the worm gear that controls the beep sequence just right.
   What was the biggest challenge in designing the movement?
   The biggest challenge is lack of space. ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER is extremely precise, and its number of movement parts is more than twice that of the sophisticated L043.1 movement. This watch has about 250 more parts than ZEITWERK STRIKING TIME, but both have the same diameter. In order to deploy components in such a small space, we need to make a lot of trade-offs, such as giving up the barrel for the sounding device, the traditional slider mode, etc. ZEITWERK has a large, high-torque barrel, perfect for the needs of this watch.
   What else is critical during the development phase?
   There are many details to consider when developing such a complex movement. For example, the design of the hammer is extremely important. Just like a drum stick, the hammer must be retracted immediately after it strikes the gong, so as not to affect the vibration of the gong. The shape and weight of the hammer, as well as how to design the hairspring that drives the hammer, are all critical. The movement components work extremely fast, making it difficult to capture even when shooting with slow motion.

Pleasant watch masterpiece: ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER
   Why did you choose platinum 950 as the case material?
   Many people think that certain materials will inevitably make the minute repeater watch have better sound quality. As a drummer, I disagree. Take the drum as an example. The snare is one of the most important instruments. Its body can be made of different materials-the sound of a wooden drum is soft and round, and the tone of a brass or steel is more powerful With a metallic feel. The type of material is not good or bad, but which sound is more suitable for a certain musical style. The same is true of the minute repeater. The 18K rose gold case can create a softer tone, but the platinum 950 case can also achieve extraordinary sound quality.
   How important is ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER to Lange?
   From the perspective of the product development director, I think ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER has set a milestone for Lange’s future development.

Top Watch Brand: Patek Philippe Chronicles

In the star-studded watch industry, people can always express their admiration and longing for the simple letter combination ‘P.P’. Because this Swiss watch brand not only has a history of nearly 160 years, it has its own headquarters, workshops and museums in Geneva, the watch capital. Its more than 80 patented technologies are also holders of many world records.

百 A Patek Philippe watch made in the 19th century, although the end of the axle has been rotated more than 12 billion times on the bearing, it is still surprisingly accurate
Since the budding of watch manufacturing, the interlocking gears, levers, hairsprings and clockwork … have always fascinated the world. What a watch can convey to people is by no means limited to time information, but also a class symbol and a popular indicator. It is enough to become a symbol of human taste, and is considered to be a treasure of timelessness that transcends time.
‘No one can own Patek Philippe, you are just keeping it for the next generation.’ Patek Philippe’s classic slogan is also a little arrogant.
The Legend of the Sword and the Cross
Antoine Norbert de Patek, the founder of Patek Philippe, was a Polish revolutionary who resisted Russian rule in 1831. After the Polish Revolution failed, he fled to France and settled in Geneva, Switzerland. In 1839, he and the watchmaker Franciszek Czapek founded Patek Czapek & Cie in Geneva.
In 1844, Anthony Patek and Jean-Adrien Philippe met at an exhibition in Paris. At that time, Jane Philippe had designed pocket watches with a thin case, and without the use of traditional spoons for winding and adjustment. However, the new design was ignored in the exhibition at the time. Anthony Patek was attracted by it, and after a conversation, the two immediately reached an intention to cooperate.
In 1845, the watchmaker Czapek decided to leave the company and continue his business, so Patek changed its name to Patek & Cie. In 1851, Philippe officially joined the company, and the company was renamed Patek Philippe.
The Patek Philippe logo is a combination of a knight’s sword and a priest’s cross, also known as the ‘Kaldoraba Cross’, which comes from a legend of a hero: In 1185, the city of Caledoraba, Spain, was invaded by Moors, Rev. Raymond and Cavalier Digo Velasquez led a deadly resistance against the people, eventually driving the Moors out. The priest’s cross and the knight’s sword together became a symbol of solemnity and bravery. This also represents the spirit of cooperation between Anthony Patek and Jane Philippe. This symbol has been in use since 1857.
In 1932, the brothers Charles and Jean Stern, who owned a fine dial manufacturer in Geneva, acquired the company. So far, Patek Philippe has maintained the operating status of the family business.
In pursuit of the high level of products, Patek Philippe spares no expense in material selection.
At the London World’s Fair in 1851, the British Queen chose and bought a Patek Philippe bag watch. This new watch with a new handle hangs on a gold pin set with 13 diamonds, and the enamel blue gold cover is decorated with a rose made of diamonds. At that time, the Queen’s husband, Prince Burt, also bought a hunting watch from Patek Philippe. Patek Philippe thus established its aristocratic status.
Early Patek Philippe case, made of sterling silver and 18K yellow gold. Since the 20th century, most have chosen 18K gold and even platinum. For the use of all-steel case, Patek Philippe has always been cautious. The Patek Philippe movements all use a high number of diamonds. In the early days, more than 15 diamonds were used, and later products were more than 29 diamonds. Some gold watches with complex performances made in the 1960s had as many as 37 diamonds, which is rare among similar watches.

The last independent watch quotient
Complexity is the top craft in watchmaking, and Patek Philippe’s exquisite manufacturing technology has created many top brand watches.
In 1927, at the order of American car king Bergard, the company produced a three-question watch that could play his mother’s beloved lullaby, which was worth 8,300 Swiss francs. In 1985, Patek Philippe produced a 940 multi-function watch with full-automatic, calendar, moon phase, lunar month, and automatic date jumping functions. Its body thickness was only 3.75 mm, making it the thinnest watch of its kind.
In 1989, the Patek Philippe Museum launched Caliber89 to commemorate the company’s 150th anniversary. After nine years of development, this timepiece has 33 complications and 1728 parts.
In 1999, Patek Philippe’s Henry Graves pocket watch, a super-large single-button chronograph created in 1932, became the world’s most expensive timepiece at $ 11 million, and set a world record with 24 complex functions. This watch is specially made by Patek Philippe for an American banker and can display 24 different kinds of information: month, date, sunset and sunrise time, etc., even including the chart of the stars and moon on any night in New York City.
In 2002, the platinum world time exceeded the limit, indicating the time of 41 countries, regions and cities; in 2007, the 1591 model became the highest auctioned stainless steel watch at the price of 2.2 million US dollars.
At present, Patek Philippe is the only one in the world that uses manual refining and can complete the entire watchmaking process in the original factory. One of the only true independent watchmakers in Switzerland-it is produced from beginning to end and adheres to the tradition of watchmaking Craft. The Swiss watch industry calls this traditional manufacturing method ‘Geneva’s 7 traditional watchmaking techniques’, which means integrating the traditional craftsmanship of designers, watchmakers, goldsmiths, watchmakers, sculptors, porcelain painters and jewelers. Patek Philippe’s most proud feature.
For more than a century, the Geneva Seal has become the quality standard it adheres to during the continuous development and improvement of Patek Philippe mechanical movements, clearly defining the highest level of quality that mechanical movements need to achieve. The Geneva Seal, established in 1886, is the highest honor for watches and clocks, and Patek Philippe is the only watch factory whose entire production line has won the Geneva Seal.
Manufacturing a Patek Philippe watch requires more than 1,200 operations. A new mechanical movement takes 3 to 5 years. During the manufacturing process, more than 600 hours of quality control inspections are required, followed by close observation and rigorous review for 30 days. Behind these figures is the superb skills of the craftsmen. The parts are decorated with Geneva stripes or wood grains, and each watch is individually assembled, polished and adjusted by hand. Only watches that have completed these tests will be able to bear Patek Philippe’s name.
The Patek Philippe watch made in the 19th century, despite the fact that the end of the axle has been rotated on the bearing more than 12 billion times, is still surprisingly accurate.
Paida Philippe has strict restrictions on the production of watches. Most of the models are produced in small quantities, and the few are only five. For famous models, there are only a few hundred at most. The current annual production is only 41,000. It has been nearly a century and a half since the establishment of the company, and its total output is less than the annual output of a fashion watch. Since the establishment of the company, Patek Philippe has kept records for each watch in the file management. In addition to the practical uses of repair and cleaning, it also shows that every watch is unique.

加 Limited quality products make Patek Philippe watches have a value-preserving function.
Caliber89 has quadrupled in value since the early 1990s. A white gold diamond sun and moon perpetual calendar male watch produced by the company in 1953 was bought by a European buyer for 5.3 million Hong Kong dollars at the 97 spring auction in Hong Kong, breaking the highest price of perpetual calendar watches and Asian watches. Two records of the highest auction price. In May last year, a 1943 Patek Philippe sold 6.25 million Swiss francs in Geneva, which is equivalent to 5.7 million US dollars. Several Patek Philippe collections have broken the million dollar mark. The 2499 series, which was worth $ 100,000 in 1992, was sold for another $ 3.3 million in Geneva. Since 2006, Christie’s has sold 18 Patek Philippe watches for more than a million dollars.
Today, there are 100 kings and 54 queens in Patek Philippe’s customer list, and there are also celebrities such as Einstein, Madame Curie, Charlotte Blunt, and Tchaikovsky.
Settled in China
7In July 2005, Patek Philippe officially entered the Chinese mainland market with Shanghai as an entry point. This store is the third store in the world after Geneva and Paris. In 2008, Patek Philippe opened another specialty store and service center in Beijing.
Paida Philippe has chosen a different model from other places in China. It has the full power to entrust the Maishi Group to carry out agency and retail, and only enters the market in the form of specialty stores.
As early as 1872, Rimage Zuishi Group facilitated the establishment of an office in Shanghai to handle consumer goods businesses such as raw materials, cameras, and cooperation with Patek Philippe for more than 20 years. Regarding this business model, Philippe Stern, the president of Patek Philippe, explained, ‘Mexico has had nearly 140 years of trade with China. We want to enter the Chinese market. Of course, they are the ideal guide. It’s like travel. ‘
For Patek Philippe, whose production is strictly controlled, there are not enough products to supply many distribution channels. Patek Philippe’s 600 selected retailers in 70 countries around the world have evolved over hundreds of years. Therefore, Patek Philippe has always adhered to its inherent development rhythm and philosophy, low-key and stable. China’s brand promotion is no exception. Last year, Patek Philippe sold close to 100 units in China.
