Collection of Swiss watches After the tide of the world economy, the price defensive, and the ordinary watch market ups and downs in sharp contrast. With the gradual convergence with the international collection of standards, the domestic collection of replica watches uk is good to say goodbye to the era of local tyrants. Swiss watch is no longer "Chinese Year" 2011 is the replica watches "price year", but also the Swiss watch "Chinese Year." After 10 years of rapid growth, Asia has become the largest consumer market in 2011, the Swiss watch, the Chinese bought half of the Swiss watch. Richemont, SWATCH and LVMH, the three Swiss watch groups have entered the Chinese market. Some world watches such as Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Pigeut, Blancpain, Piaget and Chapard have entered the Chinese mainland.

And the general consumer market is different from the auction market shows the Swiss watch collection of the basic criteria: In addition to the brand and the complex technical functions, more important is the family watchmaking heritage handmade skills. In recent years, antique watch on the auction market accounted for 70%, modern watch accounted for 30%; from the functional point of view, 80% of complex function watch, simple mechanical watches accounted for 20%; from the brand point of view, Patek Philippe accounted for 50%, other top brands 30%; rare representative of the paragraph 10%, jewelry brands accounted for 10%. Experts believe that although many types of watches, but with the value of more than two kinds of investment value collection, one is timeless antique watches, the production of rare, after years of grinding washing, but also accurate travel time; a modern watch In the limited edition commemorative watch, features complex, avant-garde design of the mechanical watch, is the current luxury market upstart. Limited Edition of Patek Philippe (PP) has become the leader of the Swiss collection watch, its long-lasting value from the traditional manual process. The $ 147 million pocket watch was commissioned by New York banker Henry Graves in 1925 and made by Patek Philippe in 1932 and delivered in 1933 with more than 900 components, 24 functions, To 2100. This watch design took three years, making another 5 years. In Switzerland, the vast majority of large-scale watch business has long been "evolution" for the mass production of modern factories, and was founded in 1839, Patek Philippe, as the last independent watchmaker in Geneva, from design, production until assembly, still retain its full Of innovation freedom, has more than 80 technology patents, "watch the blue blood nobility". Patek Philippe has maintained a traditional hand-workshop-style tabulation method, which adhere to the traditional craft integrated designer, watch division, goldsmith, watch chain Carpenter, sculptor, porcelain painter and the traditional craftsmanship, the Swiss watch industry As "Geneva seven traditional tabulation process." Tourbillon, perpetual calendar, three questions and other sophisticated mechanical functions, are through the hands of skilled craftsmen to achieve. Training a Patek Philippe watchmaker takes 10 years, due to manual time-consuming and laborious, Patek Philippe annual production, but 25,000 to 30,000, 160 years Patek Philippe produced a total of 600,000 watchs, less than one other watch factory Fashion watch of the annual output. Patek Philippe, a watch from design to factory at least five years: four years of research and design, nine months of production, three months of assembly and quality control. However, Patek Philippe in the Mainland of the first name is not as Rolex, Radar and other Swiss watch loud, which entered China earlier, their output is far more than Patek Philippe, Rolex annual production of 750,000 watches, radar production 400,000 a year watch, China is their largest market. Another example is Blancpain, it is the world's first watch brand, never produce quartz watches, the annual output is extremely limited, each watch from start to finish are made by the same master watchmakers, meticulous meticulous, hands-on , The work is completed, they will personally record in the watch book, and watch number. This tradition since 1735, the same strain so far. In Montblanc's Minerva factory, all movements are assembled twice, for the first time for functional testing to confirm that they are working properly, and then to open, re-polish, decorate all Components, the final assembly is complete. The whole process, each movement by the same clock division is responsible for assembly.

There are watches, antique clocks need to hand can contact me Senior works of art clocks and watches Broker: Wu Director 18800336643 To ensure the appreciation of the four principles Experts suggest that the collection of watches, should pay attention to four principles. First, the surgery industry specializing in different brands of mechanical watches have different functional advantages. For example, Tourbillon, a lot of brand watches have to produce the strength of tourbillon watches, but the most worthy of the brand or the first Tourbillon Breguet. Diving function is the most important Rolex. 20 years of the 20th century, Rolex has developed a waterproof watch. In 1953, Rolex launched a diving watch designed specifically for divers. Second, technology and materials. Watch making the required metal materials, movement mostly brass, the case part of the yellow gold, rose gold, white gold and platinum K gold 4, the best price and preservation of the first platinum, then yellow K gold, rose gold, and finally white K gold. Third, the selection of the movement. Quartz watch although convenient and practical, but there is no collection of value, only the powerful mechanical watches have room for appreciation. In addition to the most basic timing function, but also shows the moon and stars, moon phase, calendar, not only tachometer, swing meter, sounder, but also have three questions, Tourbillon function. Mechanical watches best reflect the value of the place, it is only through a small mechanical movement will be able to achieve these complex functions. Fourth, limited and creative. Generally have a collection of watches are limited value or commemorative models, rare. There are watches, antique clocks need to hand can contact me Senior works of art clocks and watches Broker: Wu Director 18800336643 Watch and other collections, not only has some practical value, but also the integration of enamel, sculpture, jewelry mosaic and other different categories of arts and crafts, its rich elements and subtle content has always been sought after by collectors.
