Grand Opening Of Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse Self-employed Store

Since recently cooperating with retailer Turler to open a store at Zurich Airport, IWC has now opened a new store at 61 Banhhofstrasse, Zurich’s most prestigious commercial street. How much attention this famous watch maker attaches to its domestic market has also found a home for its own timepieces in high-end commercial treasures.
    ‘Man, your time is coming’, this slogan has been prominently posted on the wall of 61 Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich for several weeks, in order to create market expectations led by male customers. IWC’s new store has finally opened, and it has brought the era of men. It presents a world with 6 different watch families.
    ‘Few people come to Zurich to visit Bahnhofstrasse,’ said Linus Fuchs, president of IWC Switzerland. ‘We are glad to finally have the opportunity to showcase our philosophy. Our mechanical watches are as unique as this street.’ Tourists must not only look forward to seeing our watch collections, but also IWC watch franchised stores. Unique style.

    IWC’s own designers decorated a 60-square-meter sales store and built an atmosphere that fully reflects the brand image. The simple design is perfectly combined with architecture and innovation. Black wood, glass, chrome-yellow, leather and polished aluminum all reflect the technical inspiration of IWC. The atmosphere blended together is elegant and charming.
    ‘For the first time, we have adopted a new visitor area in the design of a new store in Switzerland.’ Linus Fuchs said that this famous building began in 1909 and is a large family of IWC watches-Pilot, Portuguese, Ingenieur, Aquatimer Da Vinci and Portofina have created a fitting, traditional, tilted environment. These watch families date back to the 20th century.

    The concept of IWC’s new showcase in Schaffhausen illustrates the importance of the world’s themes echoing their watch family. For example, it was based on aviation history that Pilot Pilot Watch Family was established. The Aquatimer family of diver watches takes us on a bizarre journey into the deep ocean of the world. The Da Vinci series is a tribute to the world-renowned genius of the Italian Renaissance. The Ingenieur family of engineers reflects advanced technology and engineering. The picturesque town of Portofino represents its appeal to the immortal superstars of the entertainment industry in the 1950s and 1960s, and has also given its name to another well-loved watch family.
    Because this year is the year of IWC’s pilot watch, it is this series of watches that proudly became the first collection displayed on the 61st window of Bahnhofstrasse. This series of watches has also been completely improved this year, and includes five models of the Top Gun series. The legendary variety of lively cockpit instruments and analog horizons are the technically inspired background of this year’s popular Pilot Pilot’s Watch.

Jacques Droy Lady 8 High Jewelry Ladies Watch

8 symbolizes infinity and perfection, it is Jacques Dro’s lucky number, which has been presented on the dial of the Grande Seconde series. This brand’s eternal source of inspiration now appears for the first time on the case and buckle of a gorgeous women’s watch. The design on the side of the watch is a combination of amusement and jewellery, which is enough for all women.

 A diamond band surrounds the bezel, highlighting the exquisite curve of the watch, showing the beauty of simplicity. The extended effect of the crown makes the case more round and full, while the curved sapphire crystal, dial and hands further show the three-dimensional effect of this timepiece.

 The final beauty: a round pearl or gem is set on the top of the watch, making the watch more elegant and luxurious. This inlay is matched with the selected dial, which the wearer can rotate at the touch of a finger, making it irresistible.

Langue: Dresden-florence On The Elbe

Dresden, Saxony, Germany, is known as ‘Florence on the Elbe’. Although it was destroyed in the 20th century, it has never lost its royal heritage and cultural heritage. Since the beginning of the century, its artistic goddess has a lot of beauty, and its precision technology has come out on top; the princely aristocracy has been turbulent on its land, and music and literature have lived in its embrace. Even the Elbe River, which rushes down, deliberately folds its waist, and sings the chant of nature for it with its wide river beach and gentle current.

18th-century medical scientist and author Daniel Triller (1695-1782) wrote:
It’s really dazzling,
Solomon once said.
Ah, if this Dresden
Can be seen by him!

   Looking around Dresden from the top of the cross church, people see countless architectural treasures on the right side of the Elbe. These include the new town hall tower, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Bruhl platform, the Semper Opera House, the Holy Trinity. The building complex including the Church of One, the Dresden Palace, the Zwinger Palace, the court church, and the Green Dome Treasure Hall, is a collection of Renaissance, Baroque, and Classicist styles; the Baroque area on the left side of the river bank is elegant Noble, serene and peaceful, the streets filled with galleries and antique shops are filled with fascinating artistic atmosphere. This new city area, which was not much damaged in the Dresden bombing, suddenly became an actual old city.

   Think of historical figures. Outside of music and art writers such as Wagner, Sempa, and Erich Kestner, and precision instrumentalists such as Gutkes and Lange, people always think of the princes and nobles of the Saxon Wetting dynasty . Among them, the ‘Power King’ August II (1670-1733) will undoubtedly come to mind first. After all, this mighty, Saxony electorate with many titles in his lifetime left too much cultural heritage for Dresden. He has a royal collection in his lifetime, from paintings to precision instruments, and is still a Dresden treasure unmatched in other cities. His fascinating complex of Chinese porcelain made him buy Chinese porcelain madly. By 1700, the emperor already had more than 35,000 pieces of fine and expensive Chinese porcelain. Not only that, this obsession also gave him a clever idea, and he decided to send someone to develop European porcelain. A few years later, his royal alchemist Johann Friedrich Boettger (1682-1719) was in Albrechtsburg, the famous Meissen suburb outside Dresden. In the castle, Meissen white porcelain was successfully burned with local kaolin. Since then, Meissen in Saxony has become the capital of German porcelain.
   As the capital of the Free State of Saxony, the beautiful Dresden is always love at first sight. This indispensable political, economic and cultural center of eastern Germany, with its unique temperament, its courteous and courteous endowment, its gentle and unrestrained spirit, effortlessly fascinates every passer-by. In the Sorbian Sorbian language, Dresden means ‘the inhabitants of the forest by the river’, which shows the natural beauty of the Elbe Valley with its beautiful grass and fertilizer.
   In the 19th century, Dresden was popular as the capital of the Saxony Kingdom. By the beginning of the 20th century, it suddenly became a lively metropolis with nearly 400,000 residents. It is not only a trading place for art and antiques from various countries, but also an eye-catching industrial manufacturing center, which has witnessed miracles created in the fields of watchmaking, camera lenses and food and medicine. Well-known brands such as Lange watches and Zeiss lenses came into being at that time.
   But the 20th century is an eventful one. Before the end of World War II, Dresden suffered a devastating disaster. Bombs turned past glory into ashes, and iconic buildings such as the Notre Dame Cathedral, Zwinger Palace, and Semper Opera House were all spared. What remains is the painful lesson in the ruins.
   In 1990, Germany and Germany were unified. Dresden was reborn and bathed in the glory of peaceful development. Its watch manufacturing, automotive industry, scientific research and innovative design have begun to lead the world. Lange opened a specialty store in the city center. The Porsche factory and the Volkswagen Phaeton glass factory settled here. Educational institutions such as the University of Technology and the Design Institute have allowed a large number of young blood to start businesses here. With the increasing number of sunrise companies, Dresden has become a veritable ‘German Silicon Valley’ with its innovative spirit of advancing with the times.
   The old buildings in Dresden have also been gradually renovated. The restored royal art collections, such as the Ancient Masters Gallery, Modern Masters Gallery, Royal Treasure Hall, Porcelain Hall, and Mathematical Physics Salon, make visitors linger. Previously, the Semper Opera House also completed the restoration work in 1985 with the efforts of the former East German government.

   In 2005, the landmark Notre Dame Cathedral in Dresden, after 13 years of reconstruction, finally stood up again, and the light was again shining. Its new brick and old tile black and white exterior wall, and the source of the golden holy cross on the top of its tower are all intriguing stories.
   Photographer Xiaowei Wei’s shooting in Germany was initiated by the watchmaking brand Lange from Saxony, Germany. From Dresden to Leipzig, from Chemnitz to Glashütte, after more than a month, Wu Xiaowei traveled throughout Saxony. From the calm perspective of onlookers, he took thousands of breathtaking works on Saxony’s nature, history, humanities, business traditions and characters. In these works, the valley greenery and sandstone wonders bring Saxony’s unique geographical environment. Sandstone architecture records the history of Saxony’s breathlessness, while the artisans who created with the mind, soul and hands show Saxony’s pride. Handicraft tradition. The representative works shot this time will be exhibited in the National Art Museum of China from April 24th to May 3rd in the name of ‘Saxony: Home of German Superb Craftsmanship-Wu Xiaowei Photography Exhibition’. The exhibition is hosted by Guangming Daily and curated by Mr. Fan Di’an, Dean of the Central Academy of Fine Arts.

Simple And Practical Three Highly Similar Diving Watches Recommended

I don’t know if everyone has such a feeling. Now many brand watches are becoming more and more similar? In fact, there have been no new features for many years. They are all improvements to existing functions and innovations in style. However, the dial of the watch is so large that it may be accidentally different from that of other popular brands. A watch has some overlap. Today, Watch House recommends three similar diving watches to everyone, I hope everyone likes them.

Longines HYDROCONQUEST L3.642.4.56.6 watch

Watch Series: Automatic
Case material: Stainless steel
Strap material: stainless steel
Case diameter: 41 mm
Domestic public price: ¥ 9600
Watch details: CALIBRE 5 automatic watch 41 mm series WAN2110.BA0822 watch

Watch Series: Diving Series
Movement type: automatic machinery
Case material: stainless steel
Strap material: stainless steel
Case diameter: 41 mm
Domestic public price: 16400
Watch details: ACTION DIVER C013.407.11.051.00 watch

Watch Series: GENT AUTOMATIC COLLECTION
Movement type: automatic machinery
Case material: stainless steel
Strap material: stainless steel
Case diameter: 43.2 mm
Domestic public price: ¥ 6200
Details of the watch: The ACTION DIVER series is the most cost-effective watch. The watch is made of stainless steel case and bracelet. The dot hour markers are matched with luminous hands to ensure accurate reading under water. There is a date display window at the position, and the watch is water-resistant to 200 meters.

In summary: similar watches do not necessarily say who copied them, because to a certain stage, it may be that this design is more in line with the current aesthetics, or it may be that this design is more in line with the diving needs. I believe that such brand watches do not bother to imitate plagiarism, nor will they imitate plagiarism.

Omegaω Unveiled At Beijing Xinguangtiandi In 2012

A few days ago, Omega, a well-known Swiss watch brand with a long history of more than 160 years, unveiled a full range of new products from Basel in 2012 at the Beijing Xinguang Tiandi Shopping Center, presenting a special watch feast in the form of an exhibition. Consumers take a quick look. This exhibition will last for a week.
Since the brand’s establishment, Omega has always adhered to the pioneering spirit of the brand’s origins and has been committed to innovation in many fields such as precision technology, design and sports timing, and spared no effort to promote the development of watchmaking technology and the history of watchmaking. At the Basel Watch & Jewellery Show in March 2012, Omega Glory launched a series of new masterpieces. The Omega coaxial movement family has added new members, with GMT and day / date display functions. In addition, the new material CeragoldTM makes its global debut and is the first to be used on the new Omega Seahorse Marine Universe Watch. Just one month later, Omega brought the hotly-received new series of Basel to the international high-end fashion shopping hall, Beijing Xinguang Tiandi, and presented it to highly appreciative Chinese consumers. Shin Kong Place, located at the core of Beijing’s CBD, brings together many top international brands, and has always led the fashion shopping trend in Beijing with a high-end elegant atmosphere and noble and comfortable shopping experience. In 2012, Omega joined hands with them, and on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the establishment of Shin Kong Place, the 2012 Basel New Products Fair will bring consumers an excellent experience of admiring extraordinary watches.

Omega’s innovation is not only penetrated by pioneering watchmaking technology, but also reflected in innovative materials beyond imagination. At the Baselworld 2012, Omega released the Omega Seahorse Ocean Universe Ceragold watch, which is different in that the bezel uses a new and innovative Ceragold material, which uses special craftsmanship to perfect 18K red gold and zirconium-based ceramics. Convergence is truly the world’s first. Like every previous Marine Universe watch, this Ceragold model has many professional diving watch functions such as a unidirectional rotating bezel and a helium exhaust valve. The 18K red gold hour dial on the dial is coated with a white luminous coating, which, like the polished arched 18K red gold hour and second hands, emits blue light in a dark environment. The dots on the minute hand and diving bezel glow green. This feature makes it easy to read the time with one glance when diving. All marine universe models are water-resistant to 600 meters.
In 2012, Omega launched a number of new superpowers to pay tribute to its glorious and legendary history!
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first Omega Speedmaster entered space in 1962, and to pay tribute to astronaut Walter Schiera and his historic watch, Omega specially launched the Speedmaster series ‘the first into space ‘Omega’ numbered chronograph. The polished and frosted 39.70 mm stainless steel case is equipped with the famous 1861 manual winding movement. The screw-down stainless steel case back is embossed with the unique Omega seahorse emblem and the ‘THE FIRST OMEGA IN SPACE’ ‘(The first Omega to enter space),’ OCTOBER 3, 1962 ‘(date of the’ Mercury-Hercules 8 ‘mission). The Omega Speedmaster ‘First Omega in Space’ chronograph number is on sale. The unique number of each watch is engraved on the case back.

At the beginning of the Speedmaster series, it felt the pursuit of racers and rally cars with its extraordinary timing performance and outstanding design beauty. The new Omega Speedmaster Series racing chronograph is a tribute to the decades-long relationship between Speedmaster and motorsport. The bezel is equipped with a matte black aluminum tachymeter ring, and the tachymeter scale colors above are available in gray, gray-yellow and gray-red. The dial and subdial are also coloured accordingly. The 30-minute, 12-hour chronograph and small seconds dials have a triangular ‘Paris stud’ pattern texture. Omega’s exclusive 3330 coaxial movement and Si 14 silicon balance spring bring extraordinary timekeeping performance and stability to the watch.
Another unique Spacemaster Z-33 watch design inspired by the iconic Omega ‘aviator model’ case shape, and is equipped with the new Omega 5666 temperature-compensated quartz movement, not only taking into account today’s pilots for many specific functions It also cleverly blended the legendary design of the early days with the innovative technology that Omega led the watch industry. The case is made of grade 5 titanium and has its own style. There are 4 buttons on the side of the case. Together with the crown, it can fully control all functions on the digital display dial. The daily time display includes the date, UTC and dual time zones, alarm clock and perpetual calendar. Flight time is measured by the timekeeping function and countdown function. In addition to these functions, the watch also has a professional self-programming function specially designed for pilots, which can record time data for up to 10 voyages, and can view the recorded data according to the date-hour display.
