What is ‘talent’? Only talented, wealthy and handsome can be called ‘talent’? Actually not, everyone’s standards are different. In my opinion, the three talents, wealth and looks in ‘talent’ can be called as long as they have one. After all, all three are pursued and worked by the world. Today, as a talented person, Watch House recommends several watches for daily wear.

Recommended reason: Many people’s impression of Panerai stays on the “tough guy style”, but they don’t know that others have quietly made changes to introduce smaller diameter and softer designs that are more suitable for the Asian market. This blue strap white Panerai design looks more fresh and suitable for younger groups. And the diameter of the 42 mm case is also very moderate, and a date display window is also provided at 3 o’clock to meet people’s daily needs.
Summary: The prices of the several watches introduced above are around 50,000 yuan. In fact, aside from the topic of ‘talent’, these watches are also very suitable for our daily selection and wearing. Interested friends can call or go to the store to choose and try on.
‘Hermès produces high-quality objects. Our brand is elegant and sophisticated, providing quality assurance. We are not luxury,’ Hermès watch president Luc Perramond told Worldtempus at the Basel 2011. When the word luxury had been abused and became a concept for everyone to share, he quoted Emile Hermès to define luxury, ‘True luxury is something you can repair, something that can last forever.’

A Birkin bag or a 15-year-old leather saddle can be repaired naturally, as can Hermès clocks. They turned to a mechanical movement rather than a solo of a quartz movement. The amount has increased significantly to consume a quarter of the Swiss movement maker Vacucher’s product, which supplies the movement to both Richard Mille and Parmigiani. The latter also happens to use a leather strap made by Hermès. Mr. Perramond was asked if he also provided a leather strap to Patek Philippe: ‘We are not currently providing a leather strap to Patek Philippe, but we are very willing.’
‘We are developing our own movement and hope that it will be available in 2012,’ Mr. Perramond said as he flipped through the catalog of the French auction house. The auction house held the theme auction ‘Un Siècle D’Horlogerie Hermés’ in 2007, which showcased Hermes’ timepieces from the 1920s to the 1940s.
The watches on the auction catalogue are equipped with movements from Jaeger-LeCoultre, Vacheron Constantin, Tavannes, CYMA, Audemars Piguet, Baume & Mercier and Universal. That distinguished history of fine watchmaking proves the direction of this French family brand in developing mechanical watchmaking.

One of the most eye-catching watches this year is the poetic Arceau Time Suspended. It’s an incredible timepiece. It interprets time in a completely different way. Press the button on the left side of the case, and the flyback calendar pointer magically disappears, and the hour and minute hands jump into the unknown time zone. However, time flies, the mechanical movement continues to run, which means that the next time you press the button, the exact current time will appear again. The instantaneous stop and real-time transition depend on its double star wheel structure.

‘When the time and calendar hands stop, you have a good dinner with your friends, and you enjoy the holidays, you don’t have to bear the pressure of time passing,’ Mr. Perramond said with a smile when introducing the extraordinary features of this work.
100% Swiss Made
‘This is really quality time,’ Mr Perramond said, holding the 43 mm caliber, a 100% Swiss-made timepiece. Arceau Hermès Time Suspended, which carries the Hermes classic hinged shoulder design, contains three flyback functions: one on the three hands, and the other two are the center hands for 360 ° flyback-Agenhor’s flyback watchmaking experts have achieved this World number one.
Hermès Arceau Time Suspended is available in stainless steel and a gold case limited to 174 pieces, the latter celebrating the company’s 174th anniversary.
