The ‘top Watches By Hand’ Series Launched In Basel In 2014

The 2014 Basel Watch Fair is nearing its end. In addition to the major brands working together on new products at this exhibition, teacher Liu Xingli, a well-known watch writer from China, also brought his brand-new work ‘Masterpieces at Hand The ‘Top Watches’ series is on sale in Basel.

 It is reported that Mr. Liu Xingli’s book can be purchased on-site at the Palace Hall. Although the editor was not able to come to the site, I believe that this book will definitely attract many domestic bells to express the influx of people.

 Teacher Liu Xingli himself frankly said that if I summarize the characteristics of this book in one sentence, it is that I try to provide readers with a systematic evaluation system and a relatively complete idea. The purpose is to allow readers to master this system, so as to independently judge the value of a watch and a brand. Although the book may conflict with the mainstream consciousness of watch collection and consumption, for example, the reserved views on the ‘Top Ten Watches’, my purpose is to sell between watch store salespeople and customers, at auction Create a consensus between collectors and collectors.

   The form of this book has evolved compared to ‘Books on Hand’, divided into two volumes, namely the technical chapter and the purchase chapter (grade). The hot topics in the first volume include: the original manufacturing concept, the identification of noble DNA of the column wheel stopwatch, 7 major complication functions, the future of watch escapement, etc .; the second volume proposes the concept of watch production area, which is used in the 21st century for watches and clocks. Discussion on the material of the watch, the watch decoration means watch design success secrets have also been systematically arranged. Some views on watch collections that have been discussed have also been refined and supplemented with more useful information.
