分秒间的睿智INSPIRING WRIST CANDY
Baselworld is never an easy trip. Each sector includes a half-hour introduction, with rest stops limited to just 10-minutes. It’s quite common that you don’t even have time to eat a proper meal for the day. Nevertheless, for watch enthusiasts and experts, a display of the world’s finest and newest watches makes it worth the tiring trip. This year’s Baselworld is no exception. The following are some extra-special pieces we would like to share with you.
Harry Winston introduces a new member of the “Z” family this year: the Z12 model. Known for technological features, the series poses a strong attitude and bold masculinity. But the most eye-catching part of this year’s design is its wonderfully architectural three-dimensional dial. Featuring a sapphire luminescent date disc, blue hour and minute circles and matching hour markers, the two hands move over a 140-degree field. At the end of their rotation they jump back to the start 26 times a day, adding to the seductive complications that define this watch.
Besides, with the elegant octagonal shape designed from emerald, the Travel Time from Harry Winston this year also demonstrated the aesthetics of symmetry in a traditional way.
Speaking of the power reserve of wristwatches, the inconvenience of re-winding after days’ use makes some consider putting them aside. This challenge provided a chance for Hublot to show off their new tech — not to mention the marvellous hepta-barrel design. Their new system has a power reserve of over two weeks, equipped by an extraordinary vertical transmission system. It operates at 4Hz, and is considered one of the most durable movements available, which also happens to look modern, as well as easy-to-read with the linear outlay of display.
The watchcase has two editions — black carbon fibre and blue sapphire, the former of which is extremely light – weighing just 90 grams in total. Decorative helix patterns echo the mechanic design.
