  ‘A herring’ may be a proper analogy for Swiss watch companies, because when Swiss watch companies find themselves threatened, they can always transform their designs. Therefore, when the 2008 economic crisis broke out, all Swiss product development offices were up and running; the end result was a new watch of the year. Those who love antique clocks may want to thank the giants who have fallen in the subprime crisis. Because of the sudden return of retro style, everyone misses the beloved watch style in the middle of the 20th century; the best example to prove this is the recently popular classical Chronograph, and this complicated style has appeared many years ago …

  Paul Bouchers, a collector who is extremely interested in antique watches, including periodic chronographs, said, ‘Pocket watch timers are usually equipped with 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock dials. Early watch timers were at 3 o’clock. The dial is set at 9 o’clock; this makes the watch look simple and elegant and balanced, and the style is never out of date. ‘Sotheby’s auctioneer Geoff Wader-Ade said more clearly,’ What we know The first watch chronograph was a double-tracing chronograph manufactured by Patek Philippe in 1923. At the auction in 1999, this watch was very influential and reached the highest price on record. ‘

  Over the next few years, chronographs went into production in large numbers, such as the movements that Valjoux and later Lemanian suppliers sold to many companies. The design of these movements is customized according to the position of the dial, which has become a typical representative of the beautiful appearance of these early chronographs. By the 1940s, more three-dial configurations began to appear. However, the original design has made the watch a professional instrument and has been applied to military service in the second world; at the same time, it has some romantic qualities.

  That trait is perhaps the most valuable commodity in modern watchmaking. In the latest batch of antique-style chronographs, many have been designed to be romantic, no matter how modern the internal structure is. For example, the new generation of Chopard’s Chrono One is built with the most advanced movement. The third dial is concealed precisely to create an ancient style. Similarly, Audemars Piguet’s modular system can be configured in any way, allowing designers to make any style they want.
  Among the most worthy watches to collect, there are some classic Breguet chronographs and Vacheron Constantin ancestral chronographs, which still use Lehmania 2310 movement (now manufactured by Breguet); 2310 (Lemania 2310) is a manual chronograph movement, which has a close relationship with classical. Until now, this movement is still used in Patek Philippe chronograph.
  Patek Philippe is the latest company to release a new movement with a similar design. Although the new movement has made several improvements, it still follows the spirit and structure of the original era. Montblanc’s Villeret device and Roger 6-1 Dubuy (plus a micro-motor with automatic winding) also released a movement with the same mobile architecture. This movement highly praises the old era and loves mechanical watches. No doubt the retro style will continue to rise in the future.
