Patek Philippe Limited Edition, Then ‘steel Watch’

Recently, Patek Philippe held the ‘Fifth Large-scale Patek Philippe Watch Art Exhibition’ in Singapore and launched a new wave of six limited edition watches.

Patek Philippe Limited Edition 5167A in red.
 For the term ‘the fifth large-scale exhibition of Patek Philippe watch art’, players may find it relatively unfamiliar, and at the same time it is held abroad, it sounds relatively distant. But if I put it another way, everyone may be familiar. When Patek Philippe made a sensation, the limited-edition steel case large three-hand flying watch 5522A, which had once soared, was launched at the ‘Pattern Philippe Watch Art Exhibition’, but it was held in New York at that time. It can be seen that Patek Philippe will launch some special heavyweight watches when it organizes an exhibition.

Patek Philippe 5522A steel case large three-pin flight watch, limited to 600.
 At this year’s large-scale exhibition, Patek Philippe launched six limited edition watches, including two heavyweight steel watches, namely the Patek Philippe 5167A Grenade Limited Edition and the Patek Philippe Women’s Flight Watch 7234A (A represents the steel case in the Patek Philippe model) .
Patek Philippe’s ‘Red Grenade’.
 This limited edition 5167A red color grenade is amazing, but at the same time it makes sense. Because Patek Philippe has launched a variety of colors on the grenade, playing with various colors. We can simply sort out: 5168G blue color, 5168G green color, 5968A orange color, 5167A black color, and the latest limited edition 5167A red color. The grenade series has become the most fashionable watch in Patek Philippe.

Patek Philippe Limited Edition 5167A
 The limited edition red 5167A uses the red second hand, and the scale on the dial is also red. The watch face is a grayish color similar to 5968. At the same time, the watch uses red tape, which matches the color of the dial. The limited edition 5167A also uses the Patek Philippe 324 movement, which is printed with PATEK PHILIPPE SINGAPORE 2019 on the watch’s transparent caseback. Limited to 500. Through this limited red 5167A, I would like to say two questions.

Patek Philippe 5168G white gold shell blue color

Patek Philippe 5168G white gold shell green color
 The first is size. Patek Philippe recently launched a 5168G white / blue gold case in white gold with a size of 42 mm. The previous grenade is 40 mm regardless of the steel case 5167A or rose gold case 5167R. Therefore, some people have suggested whether the size of the Patek Philippe Grenade will increase afterwards. Judging from this limited edition red 5167A, 5167 still maintains 40 mm size. The steel shell grenade has not increased its size. It can be seen that 5168 is 42 mm and 5167 is 40 mm.

Patek Philippe Steel Shell 5167A Regular Edition
 Another is that Patek Philippe steel shell sports watch Nautilus is hot year round, and compared to Nautilus, the price of Patek Philippe Grenade is relatively ‘rational’. In recent years, Patek Philippe has also launched new and new colors on the grenade. Patek Philippe’s positioning of the grenade series is ‘modern, dynamic and fashionable’ (see Patek Philippe’s official website). From the trend of grenades in recent years, grenades are more fashionable than nautilus, and the difficulty of getting started is relatively low. For players who are keeping an eye on Patek Philippe sports watches, if they are not too entangled with Nautilus, grenade is a relatively easy alternative.

Patek Philippe Women’s Steel Case ‘Flying Watch’
 Patek Philippe also launched a steel case female flight watch 7234A in the six limited edition watches. In fact, this watch is no stranger to you, 7234 is a small size female model of Patek Philippe male flight watch 5524. The 5524 measures 42 mm and the 7234 measures 37.5 mm.

Patek Philippe Women’s Steel Case Flight Watch 7234A
 The Patek Philippe Women’s 7234 was actually launched last year, but it was the 7234R with a rose gold case, and this time it was the first 7234A with a steel case. In addition to the smaller size of the female model 7234, the overall appearance and functions are the same as the male model 5524. It is a two-time flight watch. The new limited edition 7234A uses a blue disk with a fine sun pattern on the surface. At the same time, the watch uses a blue canvas strap (synthetic fiber) and the color of the dial. The steel case 7234A also uses the 324 movement, and PATEK PHILIPPE SINGAPORE 2019 is printed on the transparent case back of the watch. Limited to 400.

Patek Philippe men’s platinum case 5524G (top) and women’s steel case 7234A (bottom)
 After Patek Philippe launched the women’s flight watch 7234, we can see that Patek Philippe’s lineup of women’s watches is very rich. In addition to the consistent CALATRAVA women’s watch, TWENTY4 women’s watch, sports watches, including nautilus, grenade, and flight watch 7234, as long as the men’s watch involves sports models, women’s watches also have corresponding.

Patek Philippe Tourbillon Minute Question 5303R
 Of course, in addition to the two new steel watches above, the limited editions introduced this time also include tourbillon three minute large complex watch 5303R, world time 5930G, world time three minute 5531, etc. These limited timetables will be sold in Singapore. I used to introduce and recommend watches that you can buy in the domestic market. Does Patek Philippe’s limited watch have anything to do with domestic players? From the perspective of the limited steel case 5522A previously sold in New York, it still has a relationship.

Patek Philippe World Time Question 5531R

Patek Philippe World Time 5930G
 China is one of the largest markets for world-renowned watches, and a large number of watches are bought by domestic players. Senior players know that the limited number of steel case 5522A has finally entered the domestic market. Looking at the number of 5522A that year, the number of 600 is limited. For example, the steel case red grenade limited to 500 this time is likely to appear in the country. Because it is a limited edition watch and a steel watch, the actual market price will definitely go higher and higher. Every strength player can pay more attention.

Walking By The Waves, Returning To The Sea By The River Ball Watch-facing The Harsh Environmental Challenges, Walking With The Explorers Of The Yangtze River

Since the establishment of the brand in 1891, BALL Watch has always been committed to innovation without fear of challenge. BALL Watch is famous for producing the official standard railway timepieces of the United States railways, and has always been committed to manufacturing accurate and practical professional timepieces.

  This year, in the Chinese market, Bohr Watch uses the slogan “Making strong steel watches for harsh environments” to explain in detail the insistence on quality and originality as an independent watchmaking brand. In the continuous introduction of professional watches with outstanding materials and versatile functions, Boer Watch has also strengthened the brand’s personality charm that is not afraid of difficulties and challenges through cooperation with different explorers around the world.

  As the ‘BALL Watch Explorers Association’ signed the explorer Ash Dykes (Ash Dykes) ‘s Yangtze River trip successfully completed, Bol Watch chose Shanghai-this international city located at the Yangtze River estuary The media meeting of ‘Walking by the River and Returning to the Sea’. At the meeting, Mr. Yao Zhongwei, General Manager of China, briefly reviewed the dazzling achievements made by Bol Watch in China this year, and introduced a new watch series made of 904L stainless steel. As a Swiss independent watch brand, Bol Watch dares to challenge the use of top-grade materials such as 904L stainless steel. It is an important measure in itself to work with explorers to change the world by challenging themselves.

  For Bollist, ‘exploration’ is not just a simple breakthrough of limits and blind pursuit of stimulus, but a constant observation of society and self in the process, changing the world by challenging impossible things, and achieving long-term beliefs.

  Ash Dykes is such a young explorer with a sense of social responsibility. He crosses more than half of China, trekking all the way from the snow mountain at the source of the Yangtze River to the estuary, experiencing plateau hypoxia, snowstorms, landslides, and entering the ‘Lichma’ super The multiple tests of the strong typhoon not only completed the trip to the Yangtze River, but also participated in the Yangtze River and coastal biodiversity scientific research activities on the way, reminding the world to cherish the Mother River. Yang Yong, another Chinese explorer who came to the media meeting, participated in the famous Yangtze River rafting in history in 1986. After that rafting, Yang Yong was determined to become a Yangtze River hydrology examiner from an Yangtze River explorer, and as an independent geologist, he presented a rigorous academic report for the South-North Water Transfer Project. The two explorers’ perseverance and fearlessness in improving the world also coincided with the spirit of the brand.

Indestructible 904L stainless steel
  In October 1847, a little boy was born in an unknown town in Ohio, USA. No one would think that he will become a pivotal figure in the history of the watch industry and the American railway industry in the future. He devoted his entire life to setting official railway time standards and making timepieces that are accurate and reliable even in harsh environments. This man is the founder of BALL Watch-Mr. WebbC. Ball. The rapid development of the United States relies on its huge railway network, but what many people don’t know is that accidents in the early years of railway transportation often caused casualties, and many of them were due to different time in different regions and lack of accurate timepieces.

  In 1891, two trains on the Lake Shore Line and Michigan Southern Railway Company suffered a serious collision in Ohio. The accident was caused by the misoperation of the timepiece on one of the trains. The train missed its arrival time. The incident prompted the authorities to appoint Mr. Webb C. Ball as a timepiece prosecutor to specifically formulate the ‘Official Railroad Standard’ standards, setting out detailed requirements for the appearance of the pocket watch, the accuracy of the movement, and even the inspection system . From then on, BALL Watch is synonymous with precision. BALL Watch has always kept the founder’s innovative concept in mind, and for the first time introduced Pioneer Pioneer and Energy Storage Pioneer models cast from 904L stainless steel. 904L stainless steel is different from ordinary stainless steel. Due to the addition of more precious metals such as additional chromium and copper, 904L stainless steel has excellent corrosion resistance, rust resistance and acid resistance. Its tough hardness makes the watch made of 904L stainless steel more able to cope with extreme environments. Because of this, the remanufacturing of 904L stainless steel also requires more difficult mechanical processes. Visually, 904L stainless steel has a dazzling gloss and is durable.

  Reliable reading is an extremely important quality for every Bol watch. The Pioneer series follows the brand’s time-honored design elements. The Arabic numerals ‘6’, ‘9’, ’12’ and the other hour scales on the dial are composed of self-luminous radon night lights. The radon night light used by Bolt watches can illuminate continuously for 25 years, and its brightness is 100 times higher than existing luminous coatings. In a dark environment, radon night lights can continuously provide light, ensuring clear and easy to read at all times. 40 mm diameter, mechanical movement certified by the Swiss Official Observatory COSC. Every watch is rigorously tested to ensure accuracy.

  In view of the ubiquity of electromagnetic waves in modern life, the Pioneer series watches are specially designed with anti-magnetic protective covers for the movement, and their anti-magnetic performance has jumped to 80,000A / m. The watch is also equipped with a water resistance of 100 meters, without fear of all land and water challenges.
Challenge the Yangtze River Natural Insurance

  Born in a small English town, Ash Dykes is one of the world’s most highly regarded young explorers, praised by the global explorer Bear Grylls as ‘Epic adventures by an inspiring man’. He always adds socially responsible tasks to his trekking journey. During the 78-day crossing of the Mongolian desert, he kept an eye on local environmental issues. On his way across Madagascar in 2016, he was on the verge of death due to malaria. Ash resolutely became a special ambassador for the charity to fight malaria.
  In the newly completed Yangtze River hiking challenge, Ash also shouldered the task of scientific research and protection of the Yangtze River and coastal biodiversity, and cooperated with regional environmental protection organizations and volunteers to organize environmental protection public welfare activities such as protecting the Yangtze River Mother River. Ash hopes that this expedition in China will cause more people in the world to pay attention to China’s national biodiversity. He was thrilled when he was in the stunning interior of China, walking through dazzling landscapes, interacting with locals, and getting close to wildlife. In his view, the unique ecological environment of the Yangtze River Basin and various kinds of spiritual creatures make this challenging journey full of unexpected surprises and gains.

  Another guest, Yang Yong, has an unusual origin with the Yangtze River. In 1986, a group of young people relied on the simplest rafting equipment to create the world’s first miracle of unpowered Yangtze River rafting. Yang Yong was one of these young people.
  After that rafting, Yang Yong became an expeditioner and even a guardian from an explorer. As an independent geologist, he has traveled across rivers and glaciers in China for 30 years, and he has provided rigorous reflections and reports for the South-to-North Water Transfer Project. Both outstanding explorers have left the legendary story of exploring the Yangtze River in their own unique way, and they also perfectly explain the spirit of Bohr Watch’s brand of fearlessness and adversity.
