The charm of watches

This time I would like to introduce you to the charms of watches, which most people wear. First of all, I would like to introduce some of the world famous watch brands among the many.

Three major clocks in the world

patek philippe

It stands out among the world's three major watches, and is called the world's best watch brand.
Patek Philippe was founded in 1839 by two Poles, Antoine Norbert de Patek and František Capek.
In 1851, Capek was replaced by French watchmaker Jean-Adrien Philippe, and Patek Philippe was created by combining their surnames. Jean-Adrien Philippe is the inventor of the mechanism that uses the crown to wind the mainspring and set the hands, which is commonly used in modern wristwatches. Taking advantage of this, Patek Philippe released one masterpiece after another into the world.

vacheron constantin

It is the world's oldest watch brand, having continued uninterrupted since its founding in 1755.
It all began in 1755 as a small watch workshop founded by Jean-Marc Vacheron in Geneva, at a time when the watch industry was booming. Vacheron, who was only 24 years old as a watchmaker, is said to have created a pocket watch with a movement decorated with beautiful arabesques in this year.
Since its founding, the company has specialized in watches with complex mechanisms, and has released numerous complicated watches. In addition, since there were almost no luxury watches with beautiful decorations or mechanical watches with complicated mechanisms at the time, Vacheron watches were loved by aristocrats and royalty from all over Europe, especially Switzerland.

Audemars Piguet

It is a brand that is comparable to Blancpain, which was founded in 1875 and is the oldest brand in existence, and the aforementioned Vacheron Constantin.
The founders were Jules-Louis Audemars and Edouard-Auguste Piguet, who created luxury watches, mainly complicated watches. Their goal was to create the best complicated watches, and most early pocket watch movements included at least one complication. Furthermore, it is said that one-third of the watches were equipped with a minute repeater mechanism, which required a particularly high level of complicated watchmaking technology.
Today, Audemars Piguet remains faithful to the philosophy set by its two founders: ``Harmony of tradition and innovation,'' and continues its constant efforts to bring the best products to the world.

summary

It is one of the world's top three watches that is popular and has a high status, but it is quite difficult to actually get your hands on it.
Status is important, but I think the most important thing is to wear a watch that suits you.
There are many different watch brands, so if you are looking for a watch, it would be a good idea to shop around.
