Sometimes I see my press release from the brand and shake my head: This is an eternal classic, the other is a historical legend, every moment is an epoch-making masterpiece or a revolutionary milestone—I really do n’t know what it is Confidence. If a watch series appeared 100 years ago, after 100 years, it will still be like this. It inherits DNA, and its descendants are flourishing. New products have been launched successively, and have been affirmed by the market. Consumers welcome this watch. Classic! Only worthy of the legend! But given that the history of large-scale watches is only a century, our standards can shorten the time and expand the scope, just 80 years! A watch series that can continue to flourish for more than 80 years is eligible to be called ‘permanent style’. First to debut is the Cartier Santos watch. The story dates from 1901, when the pioneer pioneer Alberto Santos Dumont flew the Santos 6 spacecraft and successfully overflew the Eiffel Tower. Afterwards, he complained to Louis Cartier because he had to control the steering wheel with both hands, and he couldn’t free his hand to take out the pocket watch from his pocket to check the time. Cartier was inspired by this idea, and in 1904 specially tailored a watch for him to wear on his wrist, and this watch called Santos was also mass-produced in 1911, thus opening a brand new wrist Table era. Santos 1916 (left), Santos 2018 (middle), Santos Dumont watches (right) Over the past 114 years, Santos has successively been upgraded and modified, but carefully compare the above 1916 models with 2018 The latest style of the year has basically not changed much. The four corners of the square bezel are inspired by the four bases of the Eiffel Tower. The dial is decorated with Roman numerals, and the middle is a square orbital minute scale. The crown is set with a sapphire. The big change is the addition of a crown bridge, the square bezel and eight screws have become more robust. The minor adjustments of the appearance are for different aesthetics of each era, but if you really want a more authentic Santos watch, the brand also has a Santos Dumont series, which is exactly the same as the prototype watch. Santos watches, tanks, and blue balloons have always been Cartier’s explosions. In 2004, when the 100th anniversary of the model was celebrated, the Santos 100 series was launched, and this year it was remodeled. Some details have changed. The watch’s new Santos watch has two highlights. One is the self-produced 1847MC self-winding movement with a power reserve of 42 hours and a vibration frequency of 28,800. Second, you can quickly change the chain belt or belt yourself without tools, and even its steel chain can be shortened or lengthened without tools. This technique is very good and very practical. Among Cartier’s many series, there is another series that just celebrated its 100th birthday last year, and it is the Tank series that is unknown and unknown. Launched in 1917, this series was inspired by the tracks of heavy armored tank cars that appeared on the battlefield of World War I. Adding lines like tank tracks to the sides of the rectangular case, and extending the length to form the lugs, changed the rounded curve popular at the time, and strengthened the structure where the lugs and the case are connected. For 100 years, tanks have produced many different styles of watches-slightly rounded lugs, slightly curved cases, crowns with protective devices, and overall elongated case shapes … but radial Roman numerals The hour-markers, blue-steel hands, track-type minute markers, vertical track-like lugs, and convex sapphire on the crown, these classic details are fully preserved. 1919 Early Tank 2017 Tank Solo Watch In 1880, Vacheron Constantin officially adopted the Malte as the brand logo, making this cross pattern with 4 branches and 8 vertices widely known. In 1912, the brand launched a unique watch that broke the usual circular design of the clock industry and became one of the first watch manufacturers to launch a barrel-shaped case. For 100 years, barrel-shaped watches have become one of the brand’s signature features. In 2000, the brand officially launched the Maltese series, combining the two classic elements of the Maltese logo and the barrel case. In 2012, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the launch of this pioneering watch, the brand has successively launched a number of new works, adding to this century-old classic. Malta series watches 100 years ago Although the Maltese series watches 100 years later, although the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso series is classic, Certainly no one will object. This watch, born in 1931, has a history of 87 years so far. The reason is to create a watch for British officers stationed in India that can be used in fierce polo matches. It can hide the watch mirror and avoid Shattered by impact. The case uses elegant rectangular lines, which is derived from the Art Deco decoration art popular at the time. At present, it has derived a variety of watches of different sizes, materials, decoration and functions. Flip function, one side can read the time, the other side can be engraved with custom memorial text or patterns, making the watch a unique personalized collection. Or it is equipped with dual time functions. The first time zone on the front and the second time zone on the back are not only good travel companions, but also the cost of a watch to buy two very different styles of watches, it is really cost-effective. 1931 Reverso watches are currently on sale. Reverso watches were sold in 1936. On the eve of World War II, Panerai developed the Radiomir watch and put it into mass production two years later. The pillow case, linear lugs, and tapered crown are its biggest features. This prototype watch is also 82 years old. However, in the early years, Panerai was always a supplier of the Italian Royal Navy. It was not until 1993 that it first introduced limited edition models to the public. Radiomir watches also officially met with general consumers. Because of their distinctive characteristics, they were well-loved military watches Watch fans of the wind are sought after. The first Radiomir watch in 1936 is currently on sale. The new Radiomir watch (right) has a watch. It just celebrated its 100th birthday last year. It is the Big Crown pilot watch from Oris. In the past, the brand always thought that its flagship series, the Big Crown pilot watch, was born in 1938 (then it was also 80 years old), but after deep exploration, it turned out that this series had appeared as early as 1917, allowing centenarians Rui for no reason has become 80 years old, but also a bit of a tear. The 1938 Pilot’s Watch has an analog calendar function and is equipped with a large, highly recognizable crown that allows pilots to operate even when wearing gloves. This series of watches is named Big Crown for this feature. In 2018 the brand also engraved this watch in bronze.
