Color Philosophy That Catches Your Eyes. Bulzell Carl F. Bucherer Signature Marley Dragon Series

CARL F. BUCHERER Since the acquisition of the Technologys Hologeres Applicquees SA workshop was integrated into CARL F. BUCHERER Techniques, it began to invest in the development of movements to strengthen the brand’s watchmaking strength. A home-made movement, CFB 1000, was launched in 2008. The A1000 movement continues the excellent design of the Swiss movement, and at the same time breaks away and creates a new pattern of movement. The avant-garde technological sense of the movement structure makes it highly recognizable.

In addition, Bucherer develops special structures to strengthen the essence of the movement, the most impressive of which is the rare Peripheral Winding Rotor. The ring-shaped automatic disc rotates along the edge of the movement, which allows people to glimpse the movement’s style without being blocked by the rotating automatic disc. The movement uses a two-way winding design, which reduces power consumption through a set of clutch rollers to enhance winding efficiency. The Bucherer’s in-house movement team has made it come to a variety of fantasy watches and series, such as the Maliron series, Plavi series, Edmar series, Bai Di Shi and Arica series, all of which have become available on the market. Work on word of mouth. The Bucherer Marie Dragon watch with a new appearance is a representative work of the brand to inject more new ideas into men’s formal watches.

In 2008, Bucherer released the brand’s first self-made movement, the A1000. The biggest feature is the rare automatic dial design

Easily record every moment
The design of the Mali Long flyback chronograph rose gold echoes the new brand image of Bucherer. The electroplated dial blooms bright champagne colors, and the case tone perfectly matches the hands and ten time scales. After many changes, the watch has always been equipped with its own CFB1970 automatic winding movement, with a power reserve of 42 hours, which proves its strong and stable performance. The watch’s timing function is controlled by a timing gear, and it is also equipped with a flyback timing function, which can quickly execute multiple timing programs continuously. The difference between the flyback chronograph and the ordinary chronograph is that it can continue the timing without pressing the zero reset button. As long as the chronograph button is pressed, the central chronograph second hand starts to move, and then press the zero reset button again. Will instantly return to the twelve o’clock position, and start to continue timing. Compared with the ordinary chronograph, you must press the stop and reset button to start another new chronograph item. Compared with the traditional chronograph, the Bucherer Marie Long flyback chronograph is not only solid, convenient and stable.

Marketing In Transition After-sales Service Becomes A Selling Point For Watchmakers

The aftermarket center is usually not as popular as the specialty stores, but it is very important for each watch company. Chopard and Patek Philippe have now turned their aftermarket centers into marketing resources.

 ‘As luxury brand companies land in first-tier cities, this will help to greatly enhance their brand image,’ said Matt Jacobson, director of social networking site Facebook market development, who is also a Rolex. Obsessed collector with Patek Philippe watches.

 Jacobson cited the sales model of the Apple Store: If an Apple Outlet Store cannot ensure a good customer experience, the other party will not buy Apple products; for retailers, this experience and Product shipping to buyers is quite different. ‘I prefer to give the watch to customers in person, rather than by mail,’ he said.

 The reason behind the watch maker’s ‘customer experience’ is simple. Normally, after-sales service has to send the watch to Geneva, and the whole process usually takes several months. Repairs range from simple maintenance (such as general inspection or finishing) to comprehensive maintenance (that is, overhaul of the most critical precision mechanical device of the watch).

 In the past, sending Patek Philippe watches from the United States to Geneva usually took three months.

 Maintaining expensive watches is expensive, but this does not seem to discourage customers. ‘Customers rarely complain about the repairs we report. What they complain about is that they want to wear their watches back sooner,’ said Larry Pettinelli, Patek Philippe’s president of the United States.

 To address these issues, Patek Philippe’s U.S. subsidiary Henri Stern Watch Agency leased a 33,000-square-foot, 15-year-old facade at Rockefeller Plaza in New York to sell the U.S. The store area has more than doubled.

 ‘The more we set up our repairs in the local market, the more satisfied our customers and retailers will be, and they will no longer complain about why minor problems take three months,’ Pettinelli said.

 The U.S. aftermarket is the largest repair center outside Geneva and can accommodate 40 watch manufacturers (Patek Philippe has 19 aftermarket locations in the United States).

 Chopard also set up a 11,000-square-foot service center in Coral Gables, a suburb of Miami, USA last year, which can meet the growing US watch market maintenance services, including those that had to be mailed to Special watch for repair in Switzerland.

 Chopard’s co-president Karl-Friedrich Scheufele said the service center is a useful complement to Manhattan’s existing maintenance department and will double the speed of Chopard watch repairs in the United States.

 This measure is part of the company’s five-year plan and is the result of a customer questionnaire. The feedback information of the questionnaire is that the after-sales service satisfaction is not high. ‘Our after-sales service makes sense, but it’s not good,’ he said. ‘It’s not easy to make a decision to set up an aftermarket in the United States. It is both a cultural change and a fundamental change in philosophy.’

 Retaining customers is the top priority, especially in the US market. Chopard’s business has grown steadily over the past 10 years, and after-sales service has become a big selling point.

 Schaefer said the company’s global turnaround time has been reduced by 11-12 days. ‘Nothing is more powerful than customers talking about their extraordinary experience,’ he said.

 American collector Chris Barry has bought his second Chopard watch, in part because he is very satisfied with the company’s after-sales service. ‘I don’t think I’m just a general customer,’ said the 30-year-old sales manager from New Jersey. After each after-sales service, the warranty period of his watch is extended by one year, but he values ​​more the personalized service he enjoys. This intimacy is crucial for watch makers, as they try to keep these young customers, who will ‘upgrade’ and buy higher-end watches.

 ‘Customers usually think of after-sales service when the warranty period or mechanical failure occurs, but when there is a problem, the after-sales service is close at hand and it feels very warm,’ Barry added. ‘This will eliminate the negative effects of watch collection a little bit and gradually increase customer satisfaction.’

 In the United States alone, about 9,000-10,000 Patek Philippe watches are repaired every year. The company will arrange its own retailer to visit the entire after sales center (which covers nearly 9,000 square feet). The finale for VIP customers and other public relations activities is usually a visit to the after sales center.

 The reception area is dedicated to the introduction of Patek Philippe watches: interactive wall panels focus on Patek Philippe’s long history, while the video broadcasts the entire after-sales service process of the watch live.

 But promises for the future are also losing money. ‘This investment has no direct return,’ Pettinelli said. ‘The real rewards are increased credibility and increased customer satisfaction.’

 ‘Every year we hope that after-sales service can achieve a break-even; we always lose money.’ But he added: ‘If the after-sales service does not meet the high expectations of customers, you cannot sell more watches.’

 John Reardon, senior vice president of Christie’s watch auction department in New York, previously worked at Patek Philippe in the United States, and he confirmed that the investment after sale is important to the company.

 Last December, the finale of the New York Important Watches auction was an auction of an 18k Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph. This watch was manufactured in 1960. Patek Philippe took good care of it, and finally sold it for $ 725,000.

 Patek Philippe watches maintain auction records, thanks in large part to the company’s service-oriented tenet for every watch produced since the company was founded in 1839. ‘The reward is to protect the historical heritage of Patek Philippe watches and These precious watches are passed down from generation to generation. ‘

Carl F. Bucherer Brand Story (3): Revolutionary Achievement Of Cfb A1000 Homemade Movement Series

Boullet’s insistence on beautiful watches and perfect creations is fully presented in the brand’s first homemade movement CFB A1000 design, and continues to follow the self-made A1001, A1002 and A1003. On the movement. At the beginning, Bucherer chose to create a unique, self-made movement with a revolutionary breakthrough design, in line with the brand’s philosophy of technological innovation, sophisticated complexity and strong individual design.
The CFB A1000 movement uses many of the fine traditions of Swiss movements, such as fine-tuning, horse-style escapement and jewel bearings; its advanced movement design is transparent from the bridge, horse and other components; this machine The core not only has reliable quality, but its platform design also considers the scalability of additional performance. In addition, Bucherer also gathered four extraordinary ideas on this movement, such as power storage display and annual calendar.

 In 2008, Bucherer announced the brand’s first fully-manufactured movement, the CFB A1000, which was officially promoted to the ranks of home-made movements. The CFB A1000 movement represents Carl F. Bucherer’s high-quality technology and the spirit of traditional manual watchmaking. The bridges and puppets in various parts are cut or polished with diamonds. Repeated modifications must meet the high quality requirements And perfect presentation.

Four innovative achievements of the CFB A1000 automatic movement series
1. Peripheral winding rotor
 Ever since the automatic movement, the position of the automatic winding disc has been a problem for watchmakers seeking perfection. Looking back at the history of watch manufacturing, there are four main types of automatic dial positions. The most common is to place it in the center. The disadvantage is that it will cover part of the movement so that it cannot fully appreciate the beauty of the movement. In addition, it is difficult to install new features next to the automatic disc. Position, but it has the same disadvantages as the central automatic disk; the third is to use a micro-rotor (Micro-Rotor) into the movement. To achieve sufficient winding power, the automatic disc is usually heavy, but it increases friction and weakens the shock resistance of the movement. The last and rarest design used in the CFB A1000 movement, the automatic disc is placed on the movement’s The edge swings in a rotating manner. It also has two advantages: the central automatic disk kinetic energy is transmitted to the entire movement, and the micro-small automatic disk does not cover the entire picture of the movement.
 The new peripheral automatic disc developed by Bao Qilai has been patented. It is equipped with ball bearings made of precision ceramics, and the balls and automatic discs of the ball bearings are coated with DCL diamond coating. It has the characteristics of being processed at a temperature of ℃, and its hardness is more than 2000 Vickers, which is several times that of stainless steel.

 Bucherer’s CFB A1000 series of automatic winding movements are equipped with a peripheral automatic winding rotor and a new high-efficiency shock absorber, which effectively prevents the automatic disk from swinging around the periphery under high impact conditions and causing wear on sensitive bearings.

2.Dynamic Shock Absorption
 In the past, the biggest shortcoming of the peripheral automatic disc was that the shock absorption performance was not good. Bucherer spared no effort to overcome and develop a high-performance Dynamic Shock Absorption dynamic shock absorber. The ball bearing / bearing assembly of the A1000 movement is embedded in a spring pony, and the pony is set by a cam. Its balance wheel and bearing end are equipped with Inga 100 shock absorbers, which can withstand slight vibration at the end. When the transmission wheel transmits the power of the automatic disc to the mainspring, the power shock absorber can exert the highest efficiency to ensure that the shaft center will not break during a violent impact. In addition, the bridge plate is equipped with special screws, which can prevent the automatic tray from being improperly displaced due to a heavy blow on the back cover.

Third, bidirectional winding
Another outstanding design of the A1000 movement is the automatic winding device, which can be powered in both directions. Because the automatic disc is equipped with a pair of clutch rollers, they can interact to minimize the power loss during winding. Although this principle is simple, it is a very reliable design that does not require lubrication or regular maintenance.

 Bucherer has created a center balance dual fine adjustment system (CDAS), a fine adjustment system for balance wheel, which can be adjusted in one simple step.

4. Central Dual Adjusting System (CDAS)
 The heart and soul of any mechanical watch lies in the combination of balance and balance spring of the escapement, so Carl F. Bucherer has another patented innovative design-CDAS-center double adjustment device. This outstanding adjustment is that its balance wheel and escapement need only be adjusted once to withstand any collision. However, in order to ensure the long-term warranty of this device, only the authorized service center of Bucherer has special tools to make precise adjustments.

Which of Longines and Omega is good, netizens comment
  Comment 1: Longines and Omega are not of the same grade at all. In terms of collection value, Omega is definitely one level higher than Longines, and its ability to maintain and increase value is even better. Longines have a lot of styles, suitable for young white-collar workers to wear, Omega’s novel style, exquisite workmanship, both have their own characteristics. But when it comes to value, it must be much higher. The price positioning of Longines is at the price of 5,000-15,000 yuan, while the price positioning of Omega is at the price of 10,000-100,000 yuan.
  Comment 2: Omega’s grade is higher than Longines. Its self-produced movement and polishing level are also higher than Longines. The range of choice is also larger. Personally, Omega is more attractive. If the budget is sufficient, it is recommended Europe.
  Comment 3: You are too professional and you may not understand … In short, no matter the material brand movement added value … Longines can not compete with Omega … Since you have the ability to buy Omega, it must be on Omega … At this level of Longines, almost no one abroad will choose Longines .. Tudor TAG Heuer Emmys Bachelor Montblanc is on Longines … If you are interested, you can see … As for your budget to buy Omega, it is not bad … .However, about 20,000 Amy Heuer Breitling is also very good … but I feel that since I want to choose a watch of this class of Omega, young people with IWC and Rolex can only be considered as tasteful Omega. Well … including Hublot Jakarta Athens are also very good, but these are to increase the budget … more than 20,000 can’t buy
  Comment 4: Omega is a world-renowned brand, and Longines watches are not bad. They are all from Switzerland. From the perspective of cost performance, the cost performance of the Omega brand is better. Omega has a lot of series that are very popular with friends. If you want to say which brand buys more, Longines watches will be better than Omega. Many people now wear watches. The brand is not Omega or Longines. If you want to buy some good watches, you can consider Longines watches. I hope my answer can help you!
  Comment five: Omega is a second-class first-level watch, Longines is a second-class second-level watch. Omega watches start at around 20,000. Longines starts at around 7,000 yuan. Not a level. Longines is definitely selling more than Omega in China.
  Comment 6: Omega and Longines watches are produced by a group in Switzerland, but the performance of Omega watches is much better than Longines. In terms of scarcity, Omega belongs to each series and will not be produced after a certain amount is produced, so the value retention is better. In terms of appearance and price, Longines watches are the best-selling series in recent years. Both brands are good, but there are still many people buying Longines! Hope the answer I gave will help you a little! Thank you!

The Symbol Of Perfection—the Twelve Rules Of The ‘geneva Mark’

The so-called Geneva Seal or Poinçon de Genève, in today’s marketing terms, can be said to be a quality assurance mark like ‘AMG nameplate’ or ‘Hand Made’. In that year, the watchmaking industry in Geneva in order to protect the watches and clocks produced in the Geneva area, to avoid watches made in other places or countries, and sold them with inferior products engraved with the name ‘Made in Geneva’, so in 1886 The Geneva Watch Association has established the “Geneva Law” (Ecole d’Horologerie et d’Electronique et d’informatique Section Poinçon de Genève rte du Pont-Butin 43 1213 Petit-Lancy Geneva Switzerland). After verification, the Geneva badge of the ‘Eagle and Key’ shield can be engraved on the movement’s splint. At present, there are twelve ‘Geneva Laws’, which have been revised many times so far to match the changing times.

Last year coincided with the 125th anniversary of its birth, the ‘Mark of Geneva’ has further improved its standards in response to the rapid development of watchmaking technology and the continuous innovation of materials. Since 2012, the ‘Geneva Mark’ is no longer only applicable to the movement, but also to the certification of the entire watch. The production of watch components, the watch production process and the inspection of finished watches will also form a systematic requirement. The standards are more stringent and must be performed by an independent agency in Geneva. After the movement has passed the test of the ‘Geneva Mark’ standard and obtained official certification, the authorities will still conduct regular surprise inspections of the company to ensure that the entire production process meets the requirements. The inspection will specifically check whether the assembly, adjustment and casing of the watch is actually carried out in Geneva, and also evaluate the quality of the production parts and assembly movement.

In addition to the movement, the new standard will be applied to the entire watch, so the case will be printed with the ‘Geneva mark’. The outer layer of the watch must also be inspected, especially for the components that connect the movement and the case, that is, the casing ring, plywood, tie rods and set screws, etc. to ensure that all parts must conform to the production process, and the finished product can be engraved with ‘Geneva Imprint ‘. But no matter how the standard changes, those twelve firm rules will never change. Let’s take a look at them one by one.

1. The edges of all steel parts must be chamfered, sanded, and polished to make it as bright as a mirror. The edges and notches of all screw caps must be chamfered and polished. The screws must be polished flat or spherical.
2. The central hole of the ruby ​​must have an oil storage groove in the bell mouth, and be highly polished to prevent the oil from diffusing and losing, and the outer periphery of the ruby ​​must be concave and polished.

3. The balance head on the balance wheel must be fixed with a single head with a round neck, which can be freely slidable with a movable metal pressure plate, or an adjustable support screw is acceptable.
4. The fast and slow needles must be fixed and can be fine-tuned.

5. Mechanisms and parts such as pendulum splint, adjusting isochronous structure, fast and slow needles must meet the requirements of Rule 1.

6. The edges of the gear drive rings of all gear trains and their supporting beams must be chamfered, and the joints with the small teeth must be polished.

7. The steel tooth lobes of all gear trains, their cross sections, the ends of all axles, and their posts must be mirror polished.

8. The part where the escapement wheel locks the ruby ​​of the pallet fork must be polished, and the tip of the ruby ​​that pushes the pallet fork must be polished.

9. The positioning mechanism to stop the pallet fork must be restricted by the fixed splint.
10. All movements must be equipped with anti-vibration devices.

11. The ratchet and crown wheels of the above system structure must be made in accordance with the special regulations of the registered model, and the engagement between the small steel wheel and the large steel wheel must be polished.

12. Do not use springs bent by wire. The springs used for its parts must be cut and carved from the entire steel plate, polished and polished to make parts with elasticity and beautiful lines.
 
There are five guarantees for currently certified watches:

First, the exclusive guarantee, Switzerland produces 20 million watches every year, only 24,000 will only pass the ‘Geneva mark’ certification.

Second, performance guarantee. Each watch is individually inspected to ensure that its functionality, water resistance and accuracy meet certification standards.

Third, the guarantee of origin, the mechanical movement of watches certified by the ‘Geneva Seal’ must be manufactured, assembled and adjusted in the Canton of Geneva.

Fourth, the process guarantees that every part of the movement is manually polished and decorated by people, adhering to the traditional watchmaking process of Geneva.

Fifth: durability guarantee. After careful polishing, each part of the movement is extremely smooth, thus reducing friction and ensuring the durability of the watch.

Although this mark is strongly criticized for its regional exclusivity, most experts believe that this is the rigorous specification that can ensure that every watch is made with the best craftsmanship, technology and materials!
