Interview With Walter Von Kaenel, President Of Longines

Longines President Huoke Nuo
Q: You became President of Longines in 1988, and led Longines to return to the Chinese market in 1994. After 16 years, what changes do you think of Longines in China, and has Longines’ strategy changed with it?
Huoke Nuo: From 2003 to the present, Longines sales in China have always ranked first in the brand’s global sales. Last year, the Chinese market contributed 30% of Longines ‘sales performance, coupled with the results of Hong Kong, Macau, and duty-free stores worldwide. In fact, Chinese consumers have accounted for 50% of Longines’ sales. I am very grateful to the Chinese consumers for their support and love for Longines. As for the reasons for success, I think first of all is that we have always insisted on using the Chinese as the management team of the Chinese market. From the impressive results of the Chinese team led by Dennis Li (Vice President of Longines China), we can see that our The choice was very correct; in addition, we enabled the spokespersons who are familiar with Chinese people to accurately convey the brand concept of ‘elegance, true personality’ to consumers; at the same time, we highly respect the opinions of Chinese consumers. Last year, some consumers suggested to us that Chinese men’s watches are not too big. We have tried to put 35cm men’s watches in the Chinese market this year.
    As for market strategy and image, we have been pursuing consistency. “Looking for the oldest Longines watch in China” was our most representative market activity in 2009. Through this activity, many people not only learned the long history of the Longines brand, but also felt our dedication to “elegance”. And our advertisements decades ago give people the feeling that they are as elegant and classic as they are today.
Commemorative watch
Q: In the watch market, what do you think is the most important advantage of Longines?
Huoke Nuo: Now people buy a watch is definitely not just to watch the time, but more to have a sense of identity and value. Longines meets this well. ‘Elegance’ also helps us have a broad customer base. From young people in their 20s to mature gentlemen and ladies, they will be happy to own a Longines watch. In addition, we work very hard to shape the price advantage. For example, this year we introduced three chronograph stopwatches with column-wheel automatic winding movements. While maintaining excellent technical standards, they also maintained a good price advantage. In addition, our product line is very rich, because we have accumulated so many excellent products and superb technology at the beginning of the brand establishment. This is the foundation of our continuous development, and this is also the backing of our continuous improvement of the brand.
  You can see that in the case of the decline of the entire Swiss watch industry in 2009, Longines sales have continued to rise, which is enough to illustrate the status and advantages of Longines in the Swiss watch industry.

Couples
Q: What do you expect from Longines in 2010?
Huokenuo: In 2009, we smile; in 2010, we can laugh even brighter. Longines’ 2010 team slogan is ‘Go forward! Go forward!-Keep going forward!’ This is also the first Longines brand to use Chinese as its team slogan. In 2010, Longines will continue its strategy to launch more consumer-friendly products, such as the Xinyue series, which exudes a soft and beautiful temperament, and the Longines column wheel chronograph stopwatch with cutting-edge technology movement, which is recommended for men.

Celebrities Wear Watches-rolex Rolex Accompanying The Legends Of The American Mountaineering World To The Major Peaks

Ed Viesturs is the only mountaineer in history to climb all 14 8,000-meter peaks without oxygen equipment (he is the only American). In 2005, Viesturs climbed the 14th peak Annapurna, successfully conquered the world’s most dangerous mountain, and was awarded the National Geographic Society Explorer of the Year. All in all, Viesturs wore ROLEX Oyster Perpetual Explorer II, and climbed over 8,000 meters on 21 occasions, including 7 degrees on the Everest.

Ed Viesturs is a well-known figure in the American mountaineering industry. He has accumulated more than 20 times before and after climbing 8,000 meters above sea level, and he has reached 7 times on the Everest alone. He is one of the few who does not need to rely on oxygen equipment to reach the world Peak mountain legend

Viesturs once said that one of the most enjoyable things in life is to achieve the goal. When we climb to the top, we will understand that the previous preparation has not been wasted. This sense of accomplishment is irresistible, because it excites and draws us into this feeling again. Viesturs has climbed to the Everest 7 times and feels different every time. People always want to stay here forever, but they can’t do it.
At first, Viesturs saw climbing as an interest, not a career. Later, he climbed the first three 8,000-meter peaks-Mount Everest, Kojiri (K2), and Kangchenjunga. He found that he had climbed the three highest peaks on the earth, so why not conquer all 14: ‘I Three have been completed and only 11 remain. ‘Viesturs made up his mind and named the plan’ Endeavor 8000 ‘.

After Viesturs climbed three 8000-meter peaks, he finally made a formal determination to complete the feat challenging 14 8000-meter peaks around the world. To this end, he formulated a Raritan 8000 plan, which took 18 years to complete successfully.

The Raritan project took 18 years to complete, and Viesturs returned to the foot of Annapurna (one of Nepal’s famous hiking trails)-the mountaineering journey often ends at the foot of the mountain, not the top-and is proud of his achievements because This was his personal journey, and no one asked him to do so, a journey he had decided to embark on. These climbing experiences made Viesturs understand that even if the goal seems difficult to achieve, as long as patience and enthusiasm, you can always achieve what you want. He was convinced that if he could look back and say, ‘I have achieved my wish.’ That person’s life would not be wasted.
For Viesturs, accurate timekeeping is very important. Explorer watches must be trustworthy, not easily damaged, waterproof, shock-resistant, and easy to use. Mountaineering planning is part of the journey, but he believes that the most important thing is the downhill planning. Knowing the time it takes to reach the foot of the mountain-this is equal to knowing the time of the return trip, which is often midnight; if he is not yet on the peak, he will return according to the rules set, and Viesturs is very strict about this.

After Viesturs completed the first three 8000-meter peak climbing operations, he received a Rolex Explorer II watch as a commemoration. Since then, he has worn the watch for every mountain climbing activity, which has become an important part of his mountaineering activities. Auxiliary tools

Viesturs owns a ROLEX Explorer II watch, which he received as a gift for completing three 8,000-meter peaks in 1994, and he did not expect to climb all 14 peaks at that time. Since then he wears the Explorer II watch every day, and all mountain climbing trips are still with him. When Viesturs climbed to the last peak in the list, which is Anna Puna, it was exactly 2 pm, he clearly remembered that moment, because he reached the peak at the perfect moment, and his watch was on his side.
This watch symbolizes Viesturs’ journey with it. Every year, we may buy a variety of new equipment for reasons such as new things, lighter weight, and better performance. However, Viesturs didn’t think he needed to replace his watch because it had a classic appearance and reliable function, and he didn’t need to find a new watch to replace it. In fact, the watch is probably one of the most important pieces of his many hiking trips.

Oyster Perpetual Explorer II

In many ways, the Explorer II watch helped Viesturs achieve his goals and keep him safe, because he decides on the mountain based on time. Without accurate time and watches, he thinks he may not be able to survive to this day.

Introduction To Cartier’s Time Zone Watch

CALIBRE DE CARTIER

Equipped with the 9909 MC, the first Cartier CARTIER watchmaking series with multi-time zone function, it has realized a variety of new and practical functions. The day and night hands of the sun and moon on the dial below the center of the watch indicate the time of departure. The main hand of the watch indicates the time of the destination, which realizes the function of multiple time zones, and the time of the second time zone is directly in front of you.
The 9909 MC self-winding movement differs from traditional multi-time zone movements in that it features an urban dial on the side of the watch. Through clever design, the magnifying glass on the side of the watch enlarges the destination display, while avoiding excessive dial indications. As long as you press the turn button, you can read the time of 24 reference time zone cities. Each time you press the turn button, each city and the corresponding time will be displayed one by one, and the time difference between the reference city and the travel city.
In addition, another innovative highlight of this watch is the ability to switch between summer and winter time. In the five months when daylight saving time is in effect, you only need to read the time of different levels on the city indicator.
Calibre de Cartier multi-time zone watch with a diameter of 45 mm, the bezel extends to the dial, large Roman numerals 12, crown shoulders and 9 o’clock side magnifying glass, & ldquo; minute track & rdquo; scale, blue steel hands and convex circle Sapphire crown, black alligator strap, 18K gold folding buckle.

【basel 2017】 Patek Philippe 5131/1p World Time Zone

PatekPhilippe 5131 / 1P watch can display the time in twenty-four time zones around the world. This functional device, combined with a very simple adjustment method, shows that the time around the world is easy to grasp, which is technical. The feat has attracted the attention of those who appreciate practical complications over the years. As for the cloisonne enamel faceplate of the watch, it has previously been favored by connoisseurs who love enamel art.

PP The popular enamel painted world time zone watch launched by the market in platinum, in addition to the case’s diamond setting at 6 o’clock to identify the type of material, even the strap is also replaced with metal chain

The hour and minute hands of the watch face are used to indicate the local time, and the city name display panel representing different time zones is exactly at the local time of the city at twelve o’clock. The crown is used to synchronize the time and the 24-hour display ring to distinguish day and night, such as AM and 4 PM. Just press the knob located in the ten o’clock direction to switch the time zone time display. Each time the button is pressed, the hour hand moves forward for one hour, and at the same time, the city name display ring and the twenty-four hour display ring rotate counterclockwise for one hour (equivalent to crossing a time zone). Pressing the button twenty-four times is actually like traveling around the world for a week, and finally returns to the place of departure.

The painted world map has always been a popular element of the 5131 world time zone watch. The 2017 new model has changed the theme of the Arctic Circle to present another landscape style.

In 1999, Patek Philippe obtained a patent for a solution technology that allowed the ‘world time’ device equipped with a city name display ring and a 24-hour display ring to be completely isolated from the gear set of the watch, making 240 HU (Heure Universelle = ‘World Time’). Under the new technology, when the device shifts from the time in one time zone to displaying the time in another time zone, it will not damage the accuracy of the movement and the movement of the minute hand in the slightest. The 240 HU is an automatic ultra-thin movement with a 22K gold mini-inset set on the bottom plate. The balance wheel operates at a frequency of 21,600 (3 Hz) half-hour swings.

The 240 HU movement is a classic and sophisticated machine under the brand, which is characterized by the convenience of adjustment. Therefore, it has been used by the brand for many years, and its reliable quality has been recognized by the market.

The center of the faceplate is decorated with cloisonné enamel pattern by human hands. It first appeared in 2008. Langzhong’s colorful world map format is the most suitable for timepieces, so it is very popular in the market. In addition to the distinguished platinum case, the newly launched 5131 / 1P in 2017 also comes with a bracelet. The painted map pattern in the center transfers the theme to the Arctic Circle, which is different from the previous brands that used Europe, Africa, North and South. The American-themed design cleverly creates subtle differences in the picture to create a fresh look. The production process of cloisonne enamel dials is quite complicated, so the output of 5131 / 1P watches is naturally not much. Following the launch of Ref. 5230 in 2016, 5131 has not been replaced, but a new generation of 5131 / 1P is launched. Then set off a wave of chasing brands in the market.

Complications Ref. 5131 / 1P-001

The Most Important Piece Of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore

Emmanuel Gueit’s Audemars Piguet [email protected] internationally renowned watch auction house Phillips announced that it will sell an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak offshore at the upcoming October 10 auction in Geneva, Switzerland. This number The Ref.25721 watch for 39 belonged to Emmanuel Gueit before, and he was an Audemars Piguet designer, and the offshore collection was born from his brush. Ref.5402 @ACM, the first watch of the Royal Oak series, mentioned Audemars Piguet, and now ‘only’ can think of Royal Oak, or think of its brother, Royal Oak offshore. The brand’s other series, such as the Millennium, HAUTE JOAILLERIE, and classic, are rarely mentioned in comparison. Royal Oak, a watch designed by Gerald Genta in 1971 and launched in 1972 not only changed the Audemars Piguet brand itself, but also affected the entire Swiss watch industry. Today, the production of Royal Oak series accounts for about 70% of the Audemars Piguet brand, which is very amazing. After Audemars Piguet officially launched the Royal Oak in 1972, Gerald Genta and his design concepts swept the Swiss watch industry. Including Patek Philippe Nautilus, Vacheron Constantin (222), Hublot Big Bang, all were born under his inspiration, and IWC engineers and Rolex Day-Just have been influenced by the design and changed the original round case. The corners are distinct. It is no exaggeration to say that Audemars Piguet Royal Oak has created a new era. The history of modern clocks and even takes the advent of the Royal Oak series as a dividing point, divided into different styles of the Royal Oak before and after. The success of Royal Oak not only earned a reputation, but also made a lot of money. Audemars Piguet bought a 40% stake in Jaeger-LeCoultre for 12 million Swiss francs from the sale of Royal Oak. In 2000, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s parent company Richemont used the pre-emptive right to repurchase these 40% of the shares at CHF 280 million. This made Audemars Piguet ‘too much love’ for the Royal Oak series. But Royal Oak’s success is not entirely a good thing! This ratio is nothing for an emerging brand, but Audemars Piguet is an old brand with a history of more than 140 years. Because the Royal Oak was so successful that everyone was ignoring other Audemars Piguet designs. If one day, Royal Oak’s design is no longer sought after, it will be a devastating blow to the Audemars Piguet brand. Such a situation is not an imagination. It has happened in history. In the 1980s, Stephen A. Urquhart, the former CEO of Audemars Piguet, found that sales of Royal Oak watches began to decline gradually. So Audemars Piguet wanted to bring a little new life to this distinctive stainless steel watch. The first edition of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore [email protected] 1993. Audemars Piguet officially launched the Royal Oak’s sibling ‘Royal Oak Offshore.’ At that time, Stephen Urquhart found that consumers had started to dislike ‘small-caliber watches’ and instead gradually switched to larger watches. Can not give up the Royal Oak, a cash cow, Audemars Piguet designers chose to enlarge the Royal Oak shore proportionally. But after zooming in, sharp edges and corners will cut hands, so designers soften and round the corners again. At the same time, the waterproof ring is exposed, and the timing button and crown are increased in water resistance. As a result, the Royal Oak was born offshore. Many cousins ​​jokingly said that offshore is a magnified version of the Royal Oak. This is true. This is true history. Standing today and looking at the past, the success of the Royal Oak Offshore series can be described as ‘reasonable’, but in fact it is not ‘smooth.’ The first edition of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore [email protected] As early as 1989, Royal Oak Offshore was designed by Emmanuel Gueit. But at that time, Audemars Piguet was anxious, afraid that this enlarged version of the ‘Royal Oak’ would not be sold, so she put it on hold for 3 years, and planned to release it in 1992, the 20th anniversary of the launch of Royal Oak. In 1992, Audemars Piguet retreated, still afraid that he would not be able to sell it, so she put it on hold for another year. In the end, the official launch date of the Royal Oak Offshore Collection was 1993. At the beginning, Royal Oak Offshore wasn’t called by this name, but named ‘Challenge’, because the change of its size was really a huge challenge at the time. However, in view of the fact that its design is derived from the Royal Oak, which was named after a British navy ship, this new watch still has to touch the sea and call it ‘Offshore’. The first version of Royal Oak Offshore [email protected] made everyone understand that Audemars Piguet was anxious. The first version of Royal Oak Offshore Royal Oak Offshore was not sold under the name ‘Royal Oak Offshore’, but was still called ‘ Royal Oak ‘. The first 100 off-shore back covers sold are numbered with carved ‘Royal Oak’. Like Royal Oak, Royal Oak cannot be sold offshore at first. Even Gerald Genta, the designer of Royal Oak, thinks that this enlarged version of Royal Oak is simply amazing. The market response severely slapped Audemars Piguet. Because even though Audemars Piguet found that consumers had signs of liking large-sized watches, it was just a ‘sign’. It wasn’t until 1997 that Panerai’s ‘fat and big’ wristwatches once again turned the ‘big-size watch’ salary into the trend of Ebara, and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak was off shore. Although Emmanuel Gueit and his [email protected] have struggled along the way, they have to admit that the offshore birth not only gave the Royal Oak series a breath, but also created their own world. Among the many Royal Oak offshore series, the most legendary model is the first Ref.25721; in Ref.25721, the most important one is the designer Emmanuel Gueit number 39. I wonder if it will be possible to refresh the price record of the ‘most expensive Royal Oak Offshore’ watch in history?
