There Are Ups And Downs, The Price Adjustment Of The New Year’s Watches In 2019

Watches and luxury goods are often adjusted. Every year, the public price will be adjusted according to the economic situation, the exchange rate, and the domestic and foreign price differences. Some time ago, Rolex’s price increase became big news. Rolex’s popular models were hot, the stores were out of stock, and the secondary market exceeded the official price. Now, Rolex has increased the public price by 3% to 5% since February 1, this year. Further exacerbating the rise of the Rolex market, it is bound to be another wave of hot speculation (the overall public price has risen, but there are also models with a public price decline, such as the calendarless nigger).

The official price of Rolex’s calendarless water ghost 114060 has been reduced this year.
 For Rolex price increases, I think players are accustomed to it. In addition to Rolex, since the beginning of this year, other watches have also been adjusted in price. Today I want to focus on the situation of several mainstream brands, such as Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC and so on. These are the most popular mainstream watches in China. This year’s prices have also changed a lot. There are ups and downs, players need to pay attention.
Jaeger-LeCoultre: overall price increase
 At the beginning of the year, I was impressed by the news that Jaeger-LeCoultre was going to increase its price. The price of Jaeger-LeCoultre was going to increase by 3% to 5%. I didn’t pay attention at that time. I went out during the Spring Festival and found that Jaeger-LeCoultre did increase the price. Popular models you are familiar with Jaeger-LeCoultre’s public prices have risen. I will briefly list some for your reference.

Moon phase of Jaeger-LeCoultre (upper) and Clown of Jaeger-LeCoultre (bottom)
 Master Jaeger-LeCoultre Moon Phase (steel case) is now priced at 70,500, compared to 67,500.
 Jaeger-LeCoultre (steel shell) now costs 70,000, compared to 67,000.
 Jaeger-LeCoultre Calendar (steel case hollow pointer version) is now priced at 46200, compared to 45,000.
 Jaeger-LeCoultre Calendar (Steel Shell Regular Edition) is now priced at 50,000, compared to 48600.
 Master Jaeger-LeCoultre full moon phases (steel shell) are now priced at 77500, compared with the previous price of 7,3500.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Calendar, two styles.
 The price adjustment of Jaeger-LeCoultre will have a certain impact on the market price of Jaeger-LeCoultre. First of all, Jaeger-LeCoultre is a major domestic watch, especially when it comes to formal watches, Jaeger-LeCoultre is a big hit. Many people buy these watches. In fact, in the past period of time, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s popular watches, such as the Moon Phase Master, have been slowly rising. Although not as fast as Rolex, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s moon phase masters are stable and progressive. The increase in the public price of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s popular watches is a few thousand dollars, which will affect the primary market and the secondary market. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s workmanship and pricing are more conscience, in other words, cost-effective. The entry threshold and the price of the main model are also close to most players’ wallets. From the new Jaeger-LeCoultre watch this year, we can see that Jaeger-LeCoultre is likely to start a movement upgrade in the next few years, so the overall market price of Jaeger-LeCoultre (including the public price) should still go up, but this year That’s it, there will be no major changes.
IWC: overall price increase
 In the past few years, IWC has adjusted the price several times. There are times when the price goes up and there are times when the price goes down. The price adjustment of IWC this year is generally on the rise. The price adjustment of IWC has been in this period for a while, not too much. I’ll just list them a bit, and you can refer to them (I remember some public prices before, it’s not particularly clear, please refer to them for reference)

IWC Mark 18 (above) and Mark 18 flying meter (below)
 IWC 18 is now priced at 33,400, compared to 31800
 IWC now has a public price of 41500, compared with 39500
 IWC Portofino timing is now 44200, compared to 42500
 The current price of IWC VII is 93600, and the previous price is 92000 (I remember it seems that it may be different)
 The flying price of IWC is now 102,000, and the previous price is 98,000 (I remember it seems that there may be discrepancies)

IWC Portofino timing (top) and IWC Portugal VII (bottom)
 IWC had previously lowered the price once, and I was very impressed by that price reduction, because the earliest Dafei was a 100,000 bubbled watch. After that price reduction, the public price of Dafei reached less than 100,000, which was more than 90,000, which was close to 10 Million public price. At the same time, all nations like Mark have been lowered. The price increase this time basically restored the public price of IWC to its previous level. In addition to this price increase, in the past year, IWC has begun to control discounts, especially foreign discounts, which has caused IWC’s market to gradually rise. In addition, everyone should pay attention to the fact that IWC has gradually replaced the self-produced movements on the entry models. Especially this year, the self-produced movements have been replaced on the TOP GUN and Spitfire series flight watches. Special editions of IWC-produced movements are used The Mark / Flymeter will be more than 1,000 to 3,000 more than the regular Mark / Flymeter with a common movement currently used. In the future, as IWC fully replaces its self-produced movements, the price of IWC will continue to increase. .
Overall there are ups and downs.

Vacheron Constantin 4010
 Because the word ‘price increase’ is easy to attract attention, many media are willing to report the news of ‘price increase’ and create hot spots, but in fact, luxury watch price adjustments are not only price increases, but price cuts are also common. It’s just selectively ignored. A while ago, Rolex adjusted prices, such as waterless ghosts, yachts, Cellini, and the Golden Shell Skywalker all reduced their prices. The law of the market, how can there be anything that only rises in this world. In addition to the brands mentioned above, starting from February 1 this year, Vacheron Constantin will reduce the price of watches below HK $ 800,000 by 3%. Glashütte’s original domestic public price has also been adjusted this year. Therefore, the public price of famous watches will go up and down. It may rise a little this year and it may go down next year. Players need to pay more attention to market changes.

2019 Basel Show Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-dweller Gold Steel

The Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller is an extremely sturdy tool watch that plays a pivotal role in exploring the deep sea.

Discover the essential watch for the deep sea

   Rolex launched the Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller gold steel model (a combination of Oystersteel and 18ct yellow gold). This is the first time that the Sea-Dweller series is made of 18ct yellow gold.

   The ‘Sea-Dweller’ is engraved in yellow on the black dial and complements the 18ct gold used in the watch. For its 2017 model, ‘Sea-Dweller’ is engraved on the dial in red font, in honor of the first sea-dweller watch. The sea-dweller is equipped with a unidirectional rotating outer ring and a 60-minute graduated black Cerachrom ceramic word ring. The sides of the case and the lugs reflect a light sheen, which makes the 43 mm oyster case more prominent and more attractive.

   The new model is equipped with 3235 movement, a leading watchmaking technology. Like all Rolex watches, the new Sea-Dweller is certified by the Super Observatory Precision Timepiece to ensure that the watch can perform at its best when worn.

Underwater exploration tools

   Rolex has been working closely with professional deep-sea diving pioneers who have long-term underwater operations and have extensive experience in deep diving. The design and development of the sea-dweller is based on this close cooperation. This extremely sturdy tool watch has accompanied divers in the first submarine habitation experiment program, which is of great significance in the human journey to challenge the deep sea. With a sturdy oyster case and also thanks to Rolex’s innovative patent, a helium exhaust valve placed on the side of the case, the water resistance of this watch has been increased from the original 610 meters (2,000 feet) to 1,220 meters in 1978 (4,000 feet).

Oyster Case and Helium Exhaust Valve

   The sea-dwelling oyster-shaped case guarantees a water-resistant depth of 1,220 meters (4,000 feet), and is a solid example of reliability. The middle case is made of a solid piece of oystersteel and is difficult to corrode. Rolex watchmakers use the brand’s exclusive tools to tighten the fine pitted bottom cover to seal the case, so only Rolex watchmakers can access the movement. The winding crown is equipped with a triple lock triple waterproof system, which is firmly screwed to the case. The crown shoulders are integrated into the middle case to protect the winding crown. The mirror is made of sapphire and is not easy to scratch. A small window convex lens at 3 o’clock makes it easy to read the calendar. The sea-dwelling waterproof oyster case gives the highest precision movement protection.

   Helium Exhaust Valve is a safety valve developed and patented by Rolex in 1967. When the diver decompresses in the high-pressure chamber, the helium exhaust valve will release the excessive pressure accumulated inside the case, while ensuring that the watch is effectively waterproof.

Rolesor gold with oyster steel

   Rolex registered Rolesor as a trademark in 1933. Since then, the combination of gold and steel has become one of the signature features of Rolex watches. This is a combination of two metals: gold, which is both noble and precious, shiny and stable; steel, unbreakable, extremely strong, and reliable. These qualities perfectly reflect the elegance and outstanding performance of Rolex watches. The new sea-dweller-type gold-steel model is made of 18ct yellow gold for the outer ring, crown and middle link of the strap, and the case and the links on both sides of the strap are made of Oystersteel.

High-tech ceramics

   Rolex has been pioneering in the development of ceramic technology. With its top technology, Rolex has developed a one-piece ceramic outer ring and ceramic word ring. This innovative material not only resists corrosion and scratches, it does not fade even when exposed to ultraviolet light. After years of intensive research and development, the brand has developed a unique set of expertise and innovative high-tech equipment and manufacturing processes, so it can produce ceramic components completely independently.

   The new Rolex Sea-Dweller is equipped with a unidirectional rotating outer ring and a 60-minute graduated black Cerachrom ceramic word ring, allowing divers to master their diving and decompression time to ensure safety. Die-cast scales and numbers are plated with gold using PVD (PhysicalVapourDeposition) coating technology. The toothed outer ring facilitates gripping and allows divers to comfortably set the dive time even when they are wearing gloves.

3235 type permanent magnet

   The new Sea-Dweller is equipped with a caliber 3235, a new generation of movement developed and manufactured by Rolex. The self-winding movement is equipped with a number of patents, fully reflecting Rolex’s innovative technology and cutting-edge watchmaking technology, and has been further improved in terms of precision and reliability, power reserve, anti-seismic and anti-magnetic, and convenient use. Perfection.

   The 3235 movement is equipped with Rolex’s patented Chronergy escapement. The escapement is made of nickel-phosphorus, which is not only efficient and reliable, but also immune to magnetic interference. The movement is equipped with an optimized blue Parachrom hairspring, made of a unique paramagnetic alloy cast by Rolex. Its shock resistance is ten times higher than that of a traditional hairspring. The blue Parachrom hairspring is equipped with a Rolex end ring to ensure that the hairspring can maintain regularity in any position. The balance spring component of the movement is equipped with a high-performance Paraflex cushioning device designed and patented by Rolex to improve the shock resistance of the movement.

   The 3235 movement is equipped with a permanent automatic winding component, and the movement is wound by a permanent rotor. The structure of the barrel and the excellent efficiency of the escapement increase the power reserve of the 3235 movement to about 70 hours.

Certificate of Excellence in Observatory Precision Timepieces

   Like all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller is certified by Rolex in 2015. This unique title proves that the watch has successfully passed a series of tests by Rolex Labs and goes beyond the conventions and standards of watchmaking. The watch is tested only after it has been assembled to ensure that when it is worn, it can excel in all aspects of precision, power reserve, water resistance and automatic winding. The Rolex Super Chronometer precision timepiece, which is tested after the movement is installed in the case, has an average error of less than two seconds per day, which is more than twice as accurate as the average observatory-certified precision timepiece.

   The green seal is the symbol of the superb chronometer. Every Rolex watch comes with this seal and is backed by a global five-year warranty.

Oyster strap and oyster safety clasp

   This sea-dweller was paired with an oyster strap introduced in the late 1930s. The Oyster bracelet is a three-link metal bracelet that is sturdy and reliable.

   The new watch is equipped with an oyster strap with a patented folding oyster safety buckle designed by Rolex to prevent the buckle from accidentally opening. The strap is also equipped with a Rolex Glidelock extension system designed and patented by Rolex. This innovative rack system is hidden under the buckle cover and requires no tools. It is gradually extended by about 2 mm per grid, up to about 20 mm. This watch can be worn outside a wetsuit up to 3 mm thick.

   Concealed ear caps ensure a seamless visual effect between the strap and case.

Jacques De Lo Presents The New Two-hour Large-seconds Watch

The new GrandeSecondeDualTime is a new interpretation of the spirit of travel. This watch exudes the elegant elegance of a generation, and pushes the GrandeSeconde’s century-old aesthetic design to a new level in a delicate and subtle way.

   The time between the two places (local time and home time) and the date display are the essential elements of a travel watch. Jaquet Droz cleverly combined technical elements with the uncompromising aesthetic characteristics of the Grande Second to create a DualTime watch that has accompanied frequent travellers around the world over the years. Stop after stop.

   For Jaquet Droz, the theme of travel is profound. Nearly three centuries ago, Pierre Jaquet-Droz and his son Henri-Louis joined forces with Jean-Frédéric Leschot, Set foot on various continents to promote their exquisite mechanical masterpieces. Since 1758, the Jaquet-Droz family has traveled from Switzerland to Spain, from France, Britain and China, and has become a true pioneer in international watch trade.

   Therefore, as the brand’s signature watch, the development and evolution of the GrandeSecondeDualTime between the two places is of great significance to Jaquet Droz. Today, the aesthetics of the new models have undergone major adjustments. Based on a self-winding mechanical movement equipped with a silicon hairspring and pallet, Jaquet Droz presents a new way to present the travel complication set in the lower part of the famous digital ‘8’ dial of the Grande Second. The center of the dial shows the plan of the five continents (also known as the polar position projection) seen from the North Pole. In order to create this modern world map, the brand uses powder coating to create the texture of the land, giving the continent a realistic and three-dimensional image. Depending on the model, Wuzhou Continental emerges from a black or dark gray mirror-polished bottom surface.

   Another innovative design of this new DualTime series: The 24-hour home time display is divided into two 12-hour intervals, which distinguishes between daytime (white interval) and night (black interval). Reading the home time is more intuitive and clear at a glance. The local time display is set on the upper part of the GrandeSeconde dial, which is adjusted by the time jump method, which makes it easier to set the time after reaching the destination. The date is displayed by the red tip of the hands and can be set automatically in sync with the time. The date hand slips past the inner satin-brushed inner disc ring.

   Jaquet Droz presents four GrandeSecondeDualTime watches with this new aesthetic design. Two of them are equipped with a stainless steel case with onyx or silver-plated opal dials, exuding a simple and modern style, suitable for travelers to wear on any occasion. The other two are made of red gold with an ivory or black large open flame enamel dial, which combines the classic characteristics of Jaquet-Droz, opening a new travel chapter for the family legend that began more than 280 years ago.
