Watches have become popular in China for many years. Probably since my grandpa’s generation, watches have entered the lives of ordinary people in large numbers. In my parents’ generation, watches have become One of the ‘three major weddings’, the watch at that time was one of the few tools that can know the time, and its importance can be imagined. Every household basically has a watch, ordinary or high-end.
Swiss Mido Belem Celli Silicon Longspring Watch
In my generation, watches are no longer as important as they were in the past. The rapid iteration of new things gradually makes many old objects fade out of people’s sight. At the same time, watches are changing, they are becoming more and more sophisticated, Beautiful and more and more individual. Now talking to a lot of older people, they will say that the watch of that era is very useful, the watch of this era is very good. I asked, ‘Don’t watches in this era work?’ They would start telling past stories to me.
I would love to hear stories of the past, because those history is not far away from me, and now I can often find those traces, and for watches, I often even see the original version at that time. Mido is one of the brands I have seen. It was seen in an antique watch store. It looks quaint now, and it was definitely a very popular watch at the time, so it can be kept until now. 2016 is the 40th year of the Mido Berencelli series. To this end, Mido looks back at history, traces its origins from previous designs, and redesigns the watch models, bringing the two highlights of the collection series and the silicon hairspring series. .
In my opinion, this silicon gossamer watch is very ancient. First of all, the watch is equipped with a brown leather strap. Historically, most watches have been equipped with leather straps, not only for comfort, but also for gentlemen. Today, leather straps are still very popular and they are formal watches. Standard. Secondly, the dial’s 3/6/9/12 points use Roman numerals. This scale itself has a long history and often symbolizes the long history of ancient civilizations. The hands are the faceted toffee hands commonly used in classical clocks, simple and sharp.
These characteristics seem to have a magical power, allowing people to easily calm down and experience the slow time, just like the antique watch shop where they were located at the time, which is pleasant. However, this may not be for no reason. The Mido Berencelli series watch draws design inspiration from the arcade of Emmanuel II of Milan and design the circular vault symbolizing the Baroque art style into a hierarchical structure. The double-layer bezel, made of 18K rose gold, is unique and chic. This classic design and Roman numerals permeate the European classicism, which may be the source of cosiness that it brings me.
Caliber 80 Si Observatory certified fully automatic movement using silicon hairspring
What’s different from history is that today’s watches are not only beautiful, but the movement has long been unprecedented. Around 2010, silicon hairsprings began to be widely used in watches. At that time, they were only tested in concept watches in high-end brands. In just a few years, silicon hairsprings were finally available to everyone. Silicon is also a modern high-tech material in watches. Silicon hairsprings can not only run stably at low and high temperatures, but also prevent the interference of living magnetic fields and increase the accuracy of watches. The Caliber 80 movement used by Mido can provide 80 hours of power reserve. In the watches of grandpa and my dad’s generation, this was unimaginable. At that time, it was usually only 24 hours, 36 hours, and then slowly Can reach 48 hours.
With the development of science and technology, our watches greatly surpass previous watches in terms of practicability, and a more modern aesthetic design makes modern watches really pleasing and pleasing to the eye.
