The reason why the watch and the frame are put together is not without any reason. The two have too many similarities, both belong to delicate objects, and both need superb technical skills and time-honored brands. Henderly’s first store funded by Zhenjiang, Jiangsu in 1915, was called Henderly Watch & Clock Store. Eyeglasses have a long history. In 1268, Roger Bacon first recorded lenses for optical purposes. At the same time, however, the use of magnifying lenses in frames for reading has appeared in Europe and China. There has been a debate as to whether glasses were imported into China from Europe or China. In Europe, the earliest glasses appeared in Italy, introduced by Alessandro di Spina of Florence. The earliest portrait with glasses, ‘Hugh of Provence’, was painted by Tommaso da Modena in 1352. The prototype of glasses has appeared in China before the Song Dynasty.
Frame culture is also reflected in the quality of the material, the shape, color, decoration of the frame, and the meaning of the graphics. Ancient frames were often engraved with patterns such as Fu, Lu, Shou, and Cai, which reflected the value connotation of ‘blessings in front of the eyes’, ‘blessings and good fortune’, ‘government prosperity’, ‘season riches’. At the same time, the name of the shop, name, name, and gold content are often carved on the beam. According to different social status and status, the frames used by the emperors and dignitaries are usually made of precious materials such as gold, silver, tincture, and ivory, while the glasses used by ordinary people are mostly made of copper, iron, steel, wood and other materials. The beam frame pattern of the glasses gradually transitions from the original arch bridge shape, gate shape, city gate hole shape, arc shape to glyph shape, bamboo shape, upside down beam shape, etc .; beam card, side card, cloud pattern, cat Head shape, tiger head shape transition to eagle head shape, two-point shape, plum point shape and other shapes. Modern frames have further developed on the basis of the ancient frame culture. No matter in form, or from design to decoration, patterns and colors, they have become more colorful, reflecting the new values and aesthetics.
Watches, like the frames, are also made by complex processes. A small watch is not only condensed with complicated craftsmanship, but also brings together the charm of time, the heritage of history and the memory of time. Watches are a complex world. The unique and exquisite appearance often leaves a deep impression on them. The fine and tiny movements and the complex and superb functions are amazing. A comfortable and durable frame with a beautiful and versatile watch is both a status symbol and a quality of life for men. Today’s Watch House takes everyone into the men’s fashion zone and introduces some frames and watches that match men’s charm.
Yellows Plus and IWC Schaffhausen
Japan’s eyewear culture is becoming more and more mature, and its handicraft technology can be said to have surpassed Europe and the United States. Among them, in addition to a lot of well-known veterans, these people have inherited these exquisite handicrafts. Eyewear brands have also rushed out, including the brand Yellows Plus. Yellows Plus was founded by designer Akira Yamagishi. It adheres to the traditional Fukui prefecture’s spirit of making durable and beautiful frames. The early design style was mainly retro mirrors, and the unique curve design of the top of the frame allowed the brow bones. Flat Asians still look sharp after putting on their products.
The Yellows Plus ‘YVES’ series is particularly recommended. The size of the mirror and the distance and length of the metal feet of the nose pads are a product that fits the Asian face shape. The entire nose pad is made of full metal. The color matching of the frame material is also in place. The setting of the mirror shape and the details of the craftsmanship have reached the connoisseur level. Polishing and craftsmanship are almost zero flaws. If coupled with the seven-day chain model of IWC’s most popular Portuguese series, which is famous for its elegance and exquisiteness, it can be said to be a blue orchid, and the taste will be instantly improved.
This IWC Portuguese seven-day chain watch not only provides a power reserve function of up to seven days, but also has a simple and beautiful design. The large diameter of 42.3 mm does not make people feel overwhelmed, especially for watches. The blue willow-shaped hands are made of blue steel, which is not only a symbol of high-end watches, but also more beautiful. Cal.51011 movement, rhodium-plated movement with fish scale pattern and Geneva ripple polishing, 42 rubies, five-way adjustment, double alloy hairspring with compensation screw alloy balance wheel, etc. The price of this watch has also risen again and again, showing how much he loves it.
Oliver Peoples and Relox
Oliver Peoples, as one of the most popular eyewear brands in the United States, is not a representative of high-end fashion trends. Hollywood men and women stars are almost a man. In the current situation where the eyewear industry is monopolized by big brand companies, Oliver People is an independent production company that continues to drive the trend of glasses, because limited production is also required to be particularly detailed. Basically, all Oliver People’s glasses are handmade The Japanese glasses factory, which sees glasses as works of art, was asked to produce Asian versions. In addition, Oliver Peoples spectacles are always made with a higher curvature than ordinary ones, in order to make the spectacles more three-dimensional, the profile contour is more prominent, and the metal frame is manually polished to make a stripe.
The MP-2 in the Oliver Peoples Vintage series is particularly recommended. Among the current products of the Chinese gold frame, MP-2 can be regarded as the top three in the Asian popularity list. The famous frame of famous Hollywood actor Johnny Depp has taken this glasses to attend the event many times. Therefore, this frame can be regarded as a difficult one, after all, the annual output of hand-made is very limited. As the so-called chess meets opponents, Rolex’s appeal in the watch industry is beyond doubt. The new ghost king Deepsea ‘D-blue’, which was launched in August this year, is a deep blue ocean that makes many watch fans linger.
The new Deepsea watch has a gradient “D-blue” dial, which is water-resistant to 3900 meters (12,800 feet). Its 44mm Oyster case is screwed with the patented Ringlock system, which not only exceeds the most stringent requirements of professional divers, but also lays down The new generation of ‘Ghost King’ is a new benchmark for ruggedness, precision, practicality and reliability. Cal. 3135, reputed as the king of self-winding movement, its stability is unquestionable. The movement diameter is 28.5 mm, the thickness is 6 mm, the frequency is 28800 times per hour, 31 rubies, and the power reserve is 50 hours. , Jumping calendar, four-arm Glucydur alloy balance, 4 weights, 2 of which are adjustable weights, Breguet balance spring, kif suspension device.
DITA and AP
DITA can be regarded as one of the top, highest and most expensive brands in frames. DITA’s design style is self-contained, so it has a high reputation in the world and is highly sought after and loved by people. Many of the popular DITA frames are from the 1950s to the 80s. In order to ensure that the brand has paid too much attention to the shaping of the brand and ignored the true quality of the frames in the development process, they deliberately defined the company’s logo design in the frame itself rather than a simple label or symbol.
I particularly recommend the Stateman, a classic eyebrow frame launched by DITA about eight years ago. Its appearance has pushed the production technology of the frame to another level and level. The detail of the frame is comparable to a delicate artwork. Every detail of it, including the hinge and every screw, is carefully crafted by the design team to find the best craftsman. This special frame with Audemars Piguet, which is also not in the watch world, is a perfect match. As early as 1972, Audemars Piguet’s independent spirit was shown to the fullest. The Royal Oak series that came out that year broke the stereotypes of the watch industry and got rid of the watchmaking norms that no one had reserved at the time. After more than 40 years of leadership, Audemars Piguet’s persistence is always satisfactory, and it continues to create new legends.
Audemars Piguet’s new product this year, the Royal Oak Offshore Series DIVER diving meter, boldly uses a striking white super ceramic material. The new material makes this diving watch’s bezel, case, buttons and crown scratch-resistant 40% higher than black ceramic. At the same time, the case is fixed with unique bottom cover screws, center bolts and hexagonal screws, which is as safe as the submarine door. It still maintains strong diving technology standards in fresh colors. The Calibre 3120 self-winding movement is equipped. This movement consists of 280 parts and provides a 60-hour power reserve.
A.D.S.R. and Roger Dubuis
A.D.S.R., an eyewear brand just established in Tokyo, Japan in 2010, has attracted a large number of people in a short period of time with its simple and unique design, bold color matching and superb workmanship. ‘ADSR’ is an acronym for four English words. These four words are Attack, Decay, Sustain, and Release. As a pure English word, Attack has the meaning of attack, attack, attack, and corrosion; Decay has The meaning of decline and decay; Sustain means maintenance, support, commitment and endurance; and Release means release, radiation, release. These meanings contained in the brand name are in line with the thinking of young people now. Among them, Evans series, with its simple and unique design, superb workmanship, bold color matching is very popular.
Similarly, Roger Dubuy opened the door to fine watchmaking in just 17 years. With its talented, bold and innovative design and craftsmanship, it has been accepted by the world and won widespread praise. As the world’s only top-of-the-line watch factory that has been imprinted in Geneva on the entire line of self-made movements, it provides fresh blood for the field of fine watchmaking.
Roger Dubuis Excalibur 42 series RDDBEX0353 watch is like a hymn of praise for strength and aesthetics. The shape of the watch is full of vitality, and the design is full of vigor and rough lines. It has a clear urban feel. The dark gray dial is simple and textured, without too much modification. The latest generation of the RD620 movement adheres to the tradition of being equipped with a micro-automatic winding mechanism, and re-interprets Roger Dubuis’ logo principles. It has a total of 184 precision parts and 35 jewel bearings. The movement has a diameter of 31 mm and a thickness of 4.5 mm. The vibration frequency is 28,800 oscillations per hour, which can provide a power reserve of 52 hours.
Summary: It is not only a luxurious and luxurious life that is a good life. The most important thing in life is to have quality. It is said that it is a face-seeing world, but in fact, a person’s appearance is not important. What is important is to have connotation and charm, to position himself, and to plan his own life. Frames and watches are very important for a man who values quality life. This is not a so-called ‘show off riches’, nor is it just a decoration, but a symbol of one’s cultivation and taste, making himself more Charisma can make you more confident in life.
