Despite Argentina’s ongoing tariffs, retailers in key South American markets continue to perform well. According to Simoneta Orsini, Eve, Chronos, Danfer and other relevant local retailers, customers still show a consistent interest in buying fine watches. They continue to pay close attention to the purchase of limited edition and special models and wait patiently for the opportunity, so they are particularly concerned about what special models are available in the local market.
Simoneta Orsini has full confidence in Lange, Panerai and IWC brands. They have obtained exclusive sales rights for these brands in the Argentine market and are very optimistic about the market expectations. In addition, they highlighted the outstanding performance of the brand and its subordinate series: Hublot and its special edition of Maradona, Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso, which is closely related to the polo world, Vacheron Constantin’s highly complex series, and Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak series. The 40-year anniversary sparked an enthusiastic response on the market. Eve also confirmed that Royal Oak’s current position in the Buenos Aires market cannot be underestimated. At the same time expressed satisfaction with the sales of Harry Winston’s black Midnight and Richard Mille. Chronos added that Ulysse Nardin’s Dual Time and Marine series brought them good results. Danfer focused on two brands: the full range under Breguet, and Piaget’s Altiplano line.

The performance of the United Arab Emirates with the luxury watch market has proved that it has survived the wave of global economic recession. In the first quarter of 2012, sales totaled 193 million-55,000 Swiss francs. The United Arab Emirates currently ranks ninth in the Swiss watch export market worldwide, ranking first in the entire Middle East, ahead of Saudi Arabia. As a result, the value of Swiss watch exports to the country in the first quarter of 2012 increased by 10.2% compared to 2011 and 34.4% compared to 2010. A major factor in the success of the country’s luxury watch market is the avant-garde style of high-income consumers and their ability to appreciate fine watches, which is also their well-known business experience.
Wealthy tourists have undoubtedly stimulated the growth of the local luxury watch market, as the government’s efforts to promote tourism in the region are world-famous. Because the United Arab Emirates is known as the ‘duty-free paradise’ of the world, the price of watches here is lower than in other parts of the world, and consumers benefit a lot. This competitive advantage also explains why high-end watch manufacturing brands not only supply the latest collections in the local market, but are also happy to supply limited edition models.

Due to its cost-effective and long history, Rolex is the most purchased brand for men. Since the average age of the UAE population is 30, most watch connoisseurs are relatively young. Therefore, the demand for top sports watches is prominent. For example, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 44mm has a long list of waiting to be purchased. Also in the UAE market are Richard Mille, as well as Breguet and Zenith. Among them, the demand for red gold El Primero Chronomaster is particularly high. Of course, Patek Philippe is also a favorite of collectors. With the influx of Chinese tourists, with their pursuit and love of the Omega brand, it has also promoted the rapid growth of the brand’s sales. As for women’s watches, Chopard is the unshakable market leader whose consumers cover people of all ages. Coupled with a comprehensive portfolio of products from sunglasses to watches to jewellery, Chopard has even established brand loyalty and stickiness among young customer groups, and it is obvious that this group of shopping carts has become more and more high-end.

As an agent for more than 60 brands in Aachen, Germany, Studio Küpper was particularly impressed by the new IWC pilot series that debuted at the SIHH in Geneva this year. According to the merchants, both the size and the use of ceramics are extremely modern. The Portuguese series is also a popular star model, this kind of popularity has lasted for several years, and shines because of its diversified functional options, especially the chronograph models, its size is suitable for men and women. Moreover, the 8-day manual winding style has achieved greater success in the male market due to its technical characteristics.
In the latest model released by Basel, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean equipped with a new self-produced movement has attracted much attention. A representative of Studio Küpper, who is a watch enthusiast, expressed his voice: ‘I really appreciate the classic appearance and timeless quality of Breitling Navitimer. It is my favorite.’

Among the new collections displayed in his home window, his favorite is Zenith, whose El Primero movement has been rated by connoisseurs as one of the best automatic movements, and is also “outstanding” among classic movements (according to tests Platform Paper).
After refurbishing and expanding the store in Ludwigstrasse, Germany, Mühlbacher Jewellers saw great potential in Hublot. In addition to the well-known evergreen brands Patek Philippe and Rolex, the appeal and influence of IWC and Omega among consumers continues to grow. ‘I am now happy to place these brands in the top ten. Cartier and Bulgari can be classified as brands with a positive brand image and increasing demand, as the number of retailers in Germany and elsewhere in Europe decreases. This advantage is further strengthened. ‘
Based in Fürth, northern Bavaria, Kuhnle Jewellers, like many other retailers, has chosen Patek, Rolex, and Breitling. The merchant claims to have been impressed with the new brand HYT, and its watchmakers have created some revolutionary innovations-adding a series of hybrid engines to their watches. This successful combination of mechanics and hydraulics is like combining combustion and electric motors in a car. Finally, the ladies’ needs were met from the Patek Philippe perpetual calendar. The Swiss watchmaker has once again proven his expertise with the Grande Complication 7140 with an ultra-thin movement. The slim hands can indicate the day, date, month, leap year, moon phase and 24 hours.
In Commemoration Of The 25th Anniversary Of The Fall Of The Berlin Wall, Lange Organized Wonderful Art Creation Activities In The East Side Gallery
The fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989 marked the beginning of a new era for Lange. The unification of Germany opened the door to the reconstruction of Lange and reinvigorated Saxony’s fine watchmaking. In line with the 25th anniversary of this historical event, Lange held a wonderful temporary (note) art event at the East Side Gallery in Berlin on November 3, 2014.
Jakub Hortig and ‘his’ LANGE 1. The date and time display for this historical moment:
November 9, 1989, 6.53 p.m.
Street artist Jakub Hortig painted a large-scale LANGE 1 work with spray paint. This watch has been the brand’s signature since Lange returned to the Saxony watchmaking world. Unlike in the past, the number displayed on the Lange’s large calendar changed from the usual ’25’ to ‘9’, which symbolized November 9, 1989. The time is set at 6.53 pm, the moment when Günter Schabowski, a member of the Politburo of the German Socialist Party (SED), announced at a press conference the immediate removal of East German citizen travel restrictions. The news sent a large number of citizens to the border crossing and toppled some of the surrounding walls that night.
Graffiti artist Jakub Hortig, who lives in Dresden, was born in Louny in 1983, and the town is now part of the Czech Republic. The skilled goldsmith and jeweller has been responsible for the finishing of Lange watches since 2007. Hortig first encountered graffiti art at the age of 13. He completed his first mural in his grandfather’s garage. His street art themes include brush-painted text and template designs. Hortig often focuses his work under a watchmaking magnifier, and street art is an important way to express his feelings.
The 1.3-km-long East Side Gallery is located on Mühlenstraße in Berlin-Friedrichshain. It is arguably one of the world’s best-known and largest open-air galleries. Since the spring of 1990, a total of 118 artists from 21 countries have left artistic marks on this wall.
LANGE 1 is made with the help of 12 templates, and the process takes 8 hours.
Note: The East Side Gallery is a protected site. Therefore, the graffiti cannot be sprayed directly on the wall. Instead, replace it with a canvas and remove it after the event.
Breitling’s aerobatic flight show is undoubtedly the biggest highlight of the aviation festival
Chinese People’s Liberation Army Bayi Skydiving Team
2013 The 2013 China Xinjiang Karamay Aviation Tourism Festival with the theme of aviation performance and aircraft display will be held at Karamay Civil Aviation Airport from August 16th to 18th this year, which is also the first aviation tourism festival in Northwest China.

AUDEMARS PIGUET Audemars Piguet is one of the brands that have already developed ceramic case. We have seen many ceramic case works in the Royal Oak offshore series in the past, but with the recent years The ceramic ring has gained a lot of popularity, and the all-ceramic shell with a more comprehensive range and a higher fragility risk is not as compact as it was a few years ago. This is evident from the fact that Audemars Piguet has launched fewer ceramic shell works in recent years; however, the brand is not comprehensive The production of ceramic shells is discontinued. For example, in 2019 they launched the new Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar white ceramic shell. This perpetual calendar model has been continuously updated for several years since its introduction in 2015, except for the rose gold and stainless steel versions, A more expensive platinum model is also introduced, or in 2017, the all-black ceramic shell style was also introduced first. This time, Audemars Piguet added a white ceramic shell to make the series more selective.
The inner ring of the case is provided with a 52-week scale display, which is more special in the perpetual calendar watch. The concise black Arabic numerals and slender arrow-shaped hands jointly display the week number of each year.
Feature 1: The case is slightly enlarged, and the week number display of the dial is a major feature
When the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar was remodeled and re-released at the time, the table diameter was increased from 39mm to 41mm. For complex watches with hours, minutes, seconds, perpetual calendar indication and moon phase profit and loss display, increasing the table diameter The layout of the faceplate can be made more relaxed, and the larger case can also show the atmosphere of a high-end watch. The dial of this watch is no exception and it still uses the ‘Grande Tapisserie’ plaid to enhance the overall beauty and recognition. In addition, the watch’s outer ring displays 52 weeks of the year, and with the central hand, the time display is more hierarchical. It is a little different from AP’s previous perpetual calendar display, because it uses the third central pointer to match the scale on the outer circle of the dial to indicate the week number.
According to AP’s official data, this chain is full ceramic and has no additional metal lining. This will not only make processing more difficult, but also require higher wearing safety (falling off due to chipping).
Feature two: Ceramic chain belt is not easy to make
A unique feature of this ceramic perpetual calendar is that the bracelet is made of ceramic. In the past, the straps used by APs in the offshore or conceptual models were almost always tape. The ceramic bracelet has been used since After the black ceramic version was applied, it slowly began to sprout in the Royal Oak series, and the powerful impression of the Royal Oak’s full circle of metal covering the wrist was originally one of the attractive features of RO. If it was replaced with tape or belt, this This kind of impression will be weakened relatively, so if the ceramic case is matched with a ceramic chain like a metal chain, the rough feeling of the sports watch will also rise.
Caliber 5134 is based on Audemars Piguet calibre 2120, the world’s thinnest perpetual calendar movement created in 1967. The exquisite hollowed-out automatic dial is even more engraved with Tapisseris check pattern, echoing the face plate.
Feature 3: Calibrated 5134 from Calibre 2120
Compared with the old RO perpetual calendar, the watch not only adds a week number display on the edge of the face plate, but also the moon on the moon phase uses a high-resolution printed realistic version, which is more compatible with aventurine discs. A more realistic effect of simulating a starry sky. The internal 5134 movement is modified from the classic 2120. The main modifications include increasing the size of the movement (this is also reflected in the larger case size), and then the perpetual calendar module is also installed on it. However, this modification also has more weekly calendar functions, so Audemars Piguet directly changed the model to 5134, no longer adopting the practice of adding a secondary number after 2120, because the function of the movement has made a deeper evolution.

To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the birth of the Tudor Dive Watch, inherit the glorious mission of exquisite craftsmanship. Tudor launched the Biwan Gold and Steel model last year. In addition to the unique lines and proportions of the Biwan series, Tudor incorporates a magnificent and luxurious gold material into the watch, showing the classic And the atmosphere of luxury sports watch characteristics. As soon as the watch was launched, it was enthusiastically sought after, and it became the hot brand of the year along with the bronze money of the same series. In 2018, the brand launched its champagne-colored faceplate and officially met everyone at the highly anticipated Basel watch fair. Compared to the exquisite and stylish black dial, the champagne gold model is more formal and dignified. Let’s take a look at this watch together: (watch model: M79733N-0004)
Blend tradition with modernity
Like the black model, the champagne gold model combines the characteristics of the past classic watches, combining traditional features with modern watchmaking. The overall shape, dome-shaped dial and mirror of the new model inherit the design essence of the first Tudor diving watch. The eye-catching winding crown is derived from the ‘Big Crown’ model introduced by Tudor in 1958, the first Tudor watch with a water resistance of 200 meters. The most representative “Snowflake” pointer of the brand is clearly angular, borrowing from the classic style of providing watches for the French Navy in the 1970s. Compared with the stylish black dial, I personally think that this watch is more suitable for people with a certain experience to wear, adding extravagance and style.
Watch real shot display
The new watch has a diameter of 41 millimeters and is equipped with a unidirectional gold 60-minute scale outer ring, which has a matte black anodized aluminum word ring and gold markings. The remaining parts are made of steel, the beveled edges show the details in place with polished finishes, and the front and sides are brushed and sanded, showing a completely different look and feel.
The screw-down winding crown in yellow gold is engraved with the black lacquered Tudor rose logo, showing the brand’s unique aesthetic characteristics. The crown is designed with a non-slip texture, which is easy for the wearer to grasp and debug.
Champagne gold-plated surface, under the sun pattern retouching produces a gradual effect, enjoy the look and feel. Adopting the consistent practical time scales in the Tudor diving watch and the central three-hand design with different shapes, the time display is more clear and intuitive. It has a luminous part even on it, so you can watch the time even in a dark environment. The 3 o’clock position has a calendar display window, which adds a practical function to the panel.
Brand-made movement MT5612
Like the black-panel model, the new model uses a dense bottom design to ensure the safety of the watch’s internal movement. Equipped with the brand-made self-winding MT5612 movement, this movement is equipped with an inertia fine-tuned silicon balance spring. Compared with traditional metal hairsprings, it can effectively avoid the interference of magnetic fields on the watch and enhance the watch’s antimagnetic performance. In addition, the movement has also been awarded the Swiss Observatory certification by the Swiss Precision Timepiece Testing Center (COSC) to ensure accurate and reliable travel time. The watch has a 70-hour power reserve and a water-resistant depth rating of 200 meters.
The gold bracelet is made of 18K yellow gold with a central metal link that connects the hinge of the case. The rest of the bracelet is also decorated with thick gold. It gives the watch a formal, luxurious and refined overall look and feel.
The unique steel folding buckle can be worn with just one touch. In addition, whether it is a metal bracelet or an antique leather strap, a textured strap is presented to present the brand’s full sincerity to customers.
Tudor Biwan Gold Steel Watch
Summary: The golden dial is more integrated with the gold bracelet and the gold bezel in appearance, showing an overall dignified and atmospheric style. If you want to buy a slightly mature, luxurious watch without losing the classic style, then this Tudor Biwan gold and steel watch is also a good choice....
