Pernod Ricard’s premium membership-only private club, Le Cercle, was unveiled with the charm of time as the theme of the exhibition. PANERAI Panerai not only extended the warranty of the commemorative watch to 70 years to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Luminor, but also hosted a grand green fluorescent party.

The Tank Asymétrique watch equipped with a hand-wound movement refined by the 1917MC workshop connects the upper and lower parallel lugs with two oblique edges, and the digital hour markers are offset by 30 degrees to the right.

Can not ride the wind but also break the waves remotely – IWC
IWC has set up 2020 as the year of Portugal that shows the spirit of sailing. Coming to the IWC exhibition hall is like entering a luxury yacht, and the exquisite living objects displayed inside seem to enjoy American life. If it were not for the public area, I would really like to pretend to be with champagne in my left hand and cigar in my right hand, watching the reflections and years of life passing down the side.
In the exhibition hall there is also the Cyberloupe, a black-tech smart loupe, which integrates the watchmaker’s loupe, high-definition camera and network connection, and transmits the image that the watchmaker sees in real time to the remote screen, making watch lovers Get an insight into the inner world of the watch movement in an unprecedented interactive way. Visitors can even see the operation of the balance wheel and small circular pendulum, and feel the heart beating of the mechanical watch up close.
The new Portuguese series entered the Chinese market on time and earlier this year. At the watch exhibition, IWC brought the Portuguese classic timepiece series with a stainless steel womens watches bracelet for the first time, with a stainless steel case, a silver-plated dial and blue hands. And applied hour markers. Inside is the brand-made 69355 chronograph movement, and the efficient two-way pawl winding system provides 46 hours of power reserve. The polished and brushed bracelet is matched with a butterfly-style folding watch, which is smooth and comfortable to wear. Although the new stainless steel bracelet can fit all the new IWC Portuguese series chronograph watches, I personally strongly recommend that you wear an extra woven leather strap that is only available in specialty stores! It looks really good! Not expensive! Have character!
In addition, IWC also brought the Portuguese series of nautical elite chronographs “Orlebar Brown” special edition launched in cooperation with the famous luxury casual clothing designer brand Orlebar Brown. The watch is designed in sea blue with full personality.
