In 2018, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched three Reverso watches with Swiss artist Ferdinand on the case. Paintings by Ferdinand Hodler

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Hodler’s death, the brand deliberately chose the famous lake and mountains as the decorative case of the Reverso Tribute Enamel series enamel watch. This watch showcases the iconic Art Deco style and is also equipped with a white gold case for micro-painted enamel. Each of the three watches is limited to eight pieces and is precious.

The front face of this watch is decorated with a guilloché pattern. It is decorated on the face plate using a long-established machine. The small diamond pattern on the face plate shows a weaving effect, delicate and chic.

Ferdinand. Hodler died in Geneva in 1918. This year marks the 100th anniversary of his death. The entire art world, especially the major Swiss museums, celebrates this symbolist figure and well-known Swiss painter. Jaeger-LeCoultre, founded in 1833, also pays tribute to the Swiss artist, whose Swiss lakes and mountains are reminiscent of Vallée de Joux, the birthplace of the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory. Ferdinand. Hodler’s parallel landscapes reflect his views on the laws of nature. Each work presents the world in a clear and concise manner, in harmony.
The front of this watch is guilloched. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s guilloché craftsmen relied on professional knowledge and rich experience to retouch the faceplate with a long-established machine. The tiny diamond-shaped pattern on the face plate shows a weaving effect, delicate and chic. Later, the craftsmen covered translucent enamel on the carvings, carefully selected tones, in line with the colors of the back paintings. The back of the case is also carefully hand-carved, and the enamel lines outline the elegant composition of each painting. Each detail is unique, further sublimating the painting’s exquisiteness, and complementing the famous three decorative engravings of the Reverso watch.

In order to express the quiet beauty of Hodler’s works, the master of enamel has spent more than 50 hours making each watch in order to faithfully reproduce the original

Reverso Tribute Enamel is inspired by Ferdinand. Hodler’s masterpiece. In order to express the quiet beauty of Hodler’s works, the master of enamel has spent more than 50 hours making each watch in order to faithfully reproduce the original. For Jaeger-LeCoultre’s enamel masters, each painting is also a difficult challenge. The biggest problem is to reproduce the large original on the 3 cm2 surface of the Reverso watch. Paintings include:

‘Lake Geneva with Mont Blanc in the Morning Light’, 1918 (74 x 150 cm) The key to this oil painting is to accurately capture the pink gold hue of the morning light, which requires a lot of thought. The front of the watch uses a light and soft gray to match the color of the painting. The sky and the lake seem to be intertwined. The painting also delicately shows the contrast of light and dark through small color points, bringing out the sense of peace and tranquility in the entire landscape.

‘Lake Thun with Symmetric Reflections Before Sunrise’, 1904 (89 x 100 cm). This painting is even more beautiful. The master watchmaker mainly adjusts the blue tones to show the beauty of the mountains and forests. The clear and clear lake water makes the stones appear in the turquoise foreground, which is extraordinary, which also inspired the enamel master to find the pine green tone to decorate the front panel. Ferdinand. Hodler’s well-known symmetrical composition is evident in enamel micropainting.

Lake Thun, Symmetric Reflection, 1909 (67.5 x 92 cm). The third painting depicts the reflection of water in the Alps, capturing the last daylight in the day. The mirror effect and the soft feel of blue and white are reminiscent of the tranquil scenery of Lake de Joux. The guilloche pattern covers a layer of translucent light sky blue enamel. The Reverso Tribute Enamel enamel watch combines the Art Deco style of the logo, faceted appliqued hour markers, crown prince hands and the track-type minute scale ring in the center of the dial. Craftsmanship. Three new works continue the elaborate design of Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso series enamel watches, each of which is directed to Ferdinand. Hodler’s tribute is sure to appeal to art lovers. This is another way for watch factories to share rare crafts (Métiers Rares), while expressing the great workshop’s love for the art and cultural world.

Blancpain Launches New Villeret Ultra-thin Watch

Blancpain brand and jewellery designer Mr. Kanazawa Yunai jointly created a unique ‘Villeret ultra-thin’ series of special limited edition watches, one each in 18K white and red gold.
Mr. Kanazawa Yunai is famous as an artist of printing and dyeing embroidery. Since 1994, he has been designing and making jewelry by himself. The dial of this ultra-thin watch is embedded with a ladybug pattern designed by Mr. Kanazawa and made of delicate and precious precious stones.

先生 In the creative jewelry design of Mr. Kanazawa, almost all precious stones like lapis lazuli, agate, amber and so on are set. In the making of these jewelry, diamonds, emeralds, rubies and other precious gems are set. With this superb technique, two different gems can be perfectly combined into one.
In order to maintain the natural characteristics of the gemstones, Mr. Kanazawa did not heat-treat the colors of the stones, nor did they dye them. Instead, he used the natural color of the stones to ingeniously process them to depict vivid colors. Mr. Kanazawa has been observing real flowers, birds, insects and fishes in nature for years to find design inspiration. Under the living energy of these creatures, his works are finally given fresh vitality. In the AK series treasures designed and produced by Mr. Kanazawa, this ‘life cycle’ design concept also exists. The perfect combination of the scarcity of this handmade work with the handmade clocks made by watchmakers not only gives people a beautiful feeling, but also brings a long-term happiness.

In 2001, at Christie’s, one of the world’s two largest auction houses, Mr. Kanazawa’s work was selected and used as the homepage of the auction portfolio as decoration, which received praise from industry and abroad. In these works, the ‘worms’ created by using the gem setting technique, which is called ‘the fine embodiment of the stone’ by the industry, ‘the three-dimensional Florentine setting’ has become an appeal to many contemporary women. Extremely longing for jewelry.

2014 Basel Clock & Watch Exhibition Chinese Faces That Cannot Be Ignored

Baselworld 2014 has come to an end. This exhibition once again successfully attracted about 10,000 visitors, exhibitors, buyers and journalists from all continents of the world, highlighting this exhibition as Trend watch of the world watch and jewelry industry and the status of important trading market. The Watch House also gave a detailed report on this wonderful exhibition. Looking back at this exhibition, in addition to the wide range of watches on the exhibition, the stories outside the exhibition are equally exciting.

  In recent years, the Chinese market has become increasingly important to the Swiss watch industry. Although sales of Hong Kong and the mainland of China fell last year, Hong Kong fell 5.6% and China fell 12.5%. However, the Swiss watch industry achieved a small increase in 2013. It increased by 1.9% in 2012 to almost 22 billion Swiss francs. Faced with such an important Chinese market, the Chinese face at the exhibition naturally became a part that cannot be ignored.
Chinese wedding at Swiss Table Fair
  On March 28, the Basel Watch Fair ushered in a happy event. Mr. Conway Kai, a senior Chinese watchmaker and his wife, held a wedding ceremony in the Sydney Hall of the Basel Convention Centre. This was the first time a Chinese wedding was held at the Centennial Watch Fair. At the wedding, a couple appeared in a traditional Chinese dress. The groom wore a Longines master series GMT watch, and the bride wore a Longines Dolce Vita watch.

   The groom, Conway, is a well-known Chinese watchmaker. He currently serves as the editor-in-chief of the ‘Shopping Guide’ and has been engaged in the watch industry for more than 10 years. The bride has worked for the Longines brand. The two men became married at the Basel Watch Show due to their relationship with the watch.

   In addition to the newlyweds’ friends and family gathered at the wedding scene, members of the Basel Watch Fair organizing committee, watch brand executives, and domestic and foreign media colleagues also attended, and witnessed this great event of the Chinese watch circle.
Organized for Chinese media
   Following the great success last year, the China Media Conference was held again the next day.
   Mr. René Kamm, CEO of MCH Switzerland, the organizer of Baselworld, delivered the opening speech. He extended a warm welcome to the guests in perfect Chinese.

   Ms. Sylvie Ritter, Managing Director of Baselworld Watch Fair also gave a welcome speech. She then mentioned that Switzerland and China have had good relations since ancient times and that the two countries have an indestructible friendship. As an inter-enterprise event, the Basel International Watch Fair is also of great significance to the relationship between China and Switzerland. China is one of the main markets for Swiss watches and jewellery. This makes China an important partner of the Basel International Watch Fair, a display platform for the global jewelry and watch industry.

   Mr. Duchêne, Chairman of the Exhibitor Committee, introduced to the media some important progress made in 2013, and emphasized the conclusion of the free trade agreement between Switzerland and China. In addition, the expansion of mid-range products and emerging markets, especially the Chinese market, have also played an important role. Mr Duchêne believes that the potential of the Chinese market is endless. Mr. Duchêne concluded his speech with the following positive words, ‘The fight against counterfeiting, innovative innovation and the cooperation of emerging markets is the key to the success of our industry. Basel International Watch Fair, the gathering place of watch and jewelry industry companies, is the industry Has made an important contribution. When I look at business and economic data so far this year, I am confident about the prospects for 2014. ‘

   Finally, the meeting announced the marriage news of Mr. Conway Kai, a well-known Chinese journalist and a frequent visitor of the Basel International Watch Fair. This is the first time Basel International Watch Fair has done so!
Organize Chinese media tours in Basel
   During the watch exhibition, the organizer of Baselworld in Switzerland also specially organized Chinese media to visit Basel, to appreciate the beautiful natural and cultural landscape of Basel, and to learn more about this beautiful city.

Summary: The Chinese face at the watch exhibition is no longer a new thing. In the face of the Chinese watch market, the Swiss watch industry has given more and more attention. In addition, many Chinese watch brands represented by Fiyta also participated in this watch exhibition. I believe that in the future watch exhibition, you can meet Chinese people at the corner.
