For most people, a high-end watch is a material symbol of identity and taste, but for Jean Claude Beaver, chairman of the Hublot Global Board, a high-end watch is a This toy with mechanical charm touched his curiosity and led him to research all the time. Let me share with you the most important things in the luxury watch industry and your personal workplace experience.
What is most misunderstood in the luxury industry?
I don’t think people will have any misunderstanding. People like luxury, they like this speciality. Everyone dreams of having a supercar and going to a luxury resort. Luxury is the rarest and most difficult product we can finally get. I have never met anyone who said that luxury goods should be produced in large quantities. You can buy 10 anywhere. You only give them 7 and then tell him that the next one must be until Christmas 2014, so that your things will be Someone wants it.
Of course, some people think that luxury is unnecessary, why do you go to a five-star hotel? Samsung hotels are also good; why do you need such a car? Other cars can also drive. I agree that luxury is really not a necessity.
Where is the most attractive thing about fine watches?
To me a watch is a toy, an engine, a steam locomotive. When we grow up, we will find that this attraction is actually the charm of machinery. Curiosity about machinery can always lead me to do research in this area.
What has been the most important change in the industry in the past few years?
Over the past period, the economic recession has had a great impact on the financial industry, but it has not changed much in our industry. This is different from the 1980s. At that time, problems occurred in the internal structure of the Swiss watch industry, causing 70,000 people to lose their jobs and many companies closed down. The entire watch industry must re-develope their business models.
Now the problems of the watch industry mainly exist in the global financial system. It is easier to overcome, because there is nothing wrong with your own house, but the weather outside is not good. After the bad weather passes, you can open the door, open Window out. Some people may lose their jobs while waiting, but not many. The waiting time is 12 to 18 months. In fact, not many people really feel too much pain.
In the fine watch industry, what are the key factors that determine competition?
Have a different vision. When an entrepreneur has the vision and the courage to implement it, he has already taken the first step to success. But a goal is difficult to achieve directly, so you need the market, the needs, the customers, you also need someone to help you, give you advice and support. And these people need to have the same vision as you, and at the same time tell you when they were wrong.
These are all I learned from the team. I have a team of 4 people and I have experienced three successful adventures with them.
What do you think of the future of the industry?
The future of this industry lies in innovation, and it is based on tradition, making tradition more lively and vivid. If you stick to tradition and repeat, then your contribution to the industry is zero. For example, like gold, traditionally everyone only knows that it is expensive and exclusive to luxury goods. Then the question that this industry has to consider is how to innovate on traditional gold. As we all know, the disadvantage of gold is that it is very soft and prone to scratches. So, if this shortcoming can be eliminated, we have contributed to the industry. In 5 years, my team has developed a method that no longer causes gold to scratch. This is an innovation based on tradition.
What kind of people do you need in this industry?
What we need most is someone who can create. If we cannot make progress every year in technology, design, materials, colors, etc., we will lose the vitality of development. The vitality of Hublot comes from our R & D department. They are the driving force of our development and the people we need most. I have never hesitated to invest in R & D. For the entire watch industry, the future of merchants will not come from marketing, sponsors, or advertising. Only when R & D and innovation begin, others will follow....
What are the watch matching skills? Watches are items that reflect taste. The correct matching of watches can make you more attractive. The choice of watches is not only the choice of brands, but also the choice of watches in accordance with their skin color and body shape.
Watch with skin tone
Everyone has a different skin color, also called the basic hue. Most yellow people are suitable for clear colors with high density and refreshing colors. Pink, blue and red will make people look radiant and attractive. People with fair skin can easily identify their basic colors, so many shades can be used as basic colors. Those with darker skin tones should not choose pink and light green as the basic colors anyway. If the skin color is dark or even dark brown, brown is definitely not the basic color. What about those who are yellowish and short? Please stay away from the red and yellow colors, they cannot be used as your basic colors. Those with darker skin tones should choose a brighter color as the basic color.
Watch with body
Body type often determines a person’s temperament, so considering body type is also taking into account temperament. Tall and strong people should choose a watch with a large dial, which is slightly rough in style and style, and even an alternative watch such as a military watch. Those who are thinner should choose a watch with a thinner and smaller dial. It is easy for ordinary people to choose. Occasionally large models can increase people’s powerful momentum, while small models can appear humble and restrained.
Watch with clothing
As a watch, some people think that it is just a trinket. You should choose a watch with clothing as the background, but it is not true. A very simple understanding is that clothing must be worn by everyone, and watches may not be worn by everyone. Therefore, a watch will be a highlight. Since it is a highlight, it is the protagonist, so it should be based on the watch When choosing clothes, remember that watches are not used to decorate clothes.
Quickly wear it in daily work, one in some formal business places, and one with a time zone watch. This type is usually worn by people who travel frequently, but the time zone watch is no longer limited to this type of people. Many people use it as decoration; in addition to these three, you will also prepare a sports watch with a quick movement, a casual watch usually worn during shopping, and a jewellery table and jewellery table for work and social occasions But it is very important, because sometimes it will bring you a turn of life.
For the simple and book-like stainless steel watch, you can use plaid clothing to match. This type of stainless steel watch has the benefit of being versatile, and it will not look too exaggerated with a plaid jacket. In addition, some new stainless steel men’s watches are equipped with a leather strap that can be replaced and can be worn in casual occasions.
Choose a thin and versatile sports watch, such as a golf watch, because the sporty design elements are ubiquitous, and the combination with brand-name sports fashion will bring more fashion sense. Elegant watches can be used with sporty clothing, not only for sports, but also for space clothing and wild fur clothing.
For ultra-thin watches, because the watch is as light and elegant as a business card, it has no ruggedness of sports watches. It is suitable for business negotiations and daily work. These watches are paired with autumn and winter goose down clothing.

For many movie enthusiasts, silent film may have become a fixed black and white image in history. Although no one is going to shoot such a film now, this cannot stop it from becoming a movie. A landmark example in the history of development.
It is reported that on February 28, 2014, the world’s top watch brand Jaeger-LeCoultre teamed up with the granddaughter of the famous silent film master Charlie Chaplin-Carmen, Mann & Mille and Renault-Nissan Union to host a grand celebration in Los Angeles West Hollywood. The theme of the event is to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the classic silent film ‘The Tramp’.
The mention of the silent film ‘The Tramp’ has to mention a legendary task-Charlie Chaplin, a British comedian and anti-war person who later became a very good director, especially in He was very successful and active in the early and middle stages of Hollywood films. He laid the foundation for modern comedy movies, and he was called ‘the world’s three biggest comedians’ with Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd. As an important representative of comedy films, many artists have performed in his way in the future.
‘The Tramp’ came out in 1915, the third of twelve films by Charlie Chaplin, in this film. For the first time, Charlie created his standard image-a homeless gentleman wearing a top hat, large leather shoes, a moustache, a crutch, and walking on a figure-foot. Because this character’s shape is so popular with the audience, Chaplin has dressed it in many future films and has become an immortal comedy in the eyes of the audience. This film is probably the least humorous of all his films, but one of the most interesting. It is essentially a melodrama.
The opening night of the event began with two classics by Charlie Chaplin, A Time For Everything and The Innovators. A Time For Everything is directed by Carmen Chaplin, and includes Carmen Chaplin, Patricia Chaplin, and Uma Chaplin Bhalla. All participated in the show. The show was produced jointly by Kwanon Films and Mann & Miller.
For Jaeger-LeCoultre, Chaplin’s granddaughter Carmen Chaplin told people that the existence of this historic watch seemed like a cycle of fate. The classic A Time For Everything also premiered during the Geneva International Haute Horlogerie show last year, which shows its legendary status in the film industry....
