The story tells that Harry Winston bought two carats of emeralds for 25 cents when he was 12 years old. He recognized the value and sold it for $800 in two days.

In 1904, when Louis Cartier chatted with his friend Alberto Santos-Dumont, he realized the necessity of watches. Santos complained about the difficulty of flying when using a pocket watch. This is Cartier’s inspiration for creating watches.

Frédéric Boucheron, the founder of Boucheron Paris, was the first jeweller to move to Place Vendôme. It is said that he especially chose the sunniest corner of the square, so that the diamonds on the windows have extra brilliance.

Peter Carl Fabergé (Peter Carl Fabergé) made the first Faberge egg for the Russian Tsar Alexander III to his wife Empress Maria in 1885. The Czar ordered another egg in the second and second year. Faberge’s design was completely free, and the Czar did not know what would happen.

Georges Édouard Piaget’s first workshop was on his family’s farm in the small Swiss village of La Côte-aux-Fées in the Jura. He is committed to perfecting the cheapest watches mechanism to reduce the size of the timepiece.

Each story inspires us to appreciate the glory of building an empire. Each story provides insights for the inspiration of timeless design.

In the first article of this series, we will take a closer look at the diamond jewelry giant swiss Harry Winston.

Famous jeweler: Harry Winston, King of Diamonds

The legendary Harry Winston (Harry Winston) was born on March 1, 1896. Winston’s father Jacob (Jacob) ran a small jewellery shop, and Harry has been helping in the shop since he was very young. The story goes like this: 12-year-old Harry Winston (Harry Winston) bought two carats of emeralds from a pawn shop for 25 cents, hitting symbolic gold. Realizing its value, he turned around and sold it for $800 in two days.

Start with modesty
At the age of 19, Harry Winston used his savings of $2,000 to start the Premier Diamond Company. Within 2 years, he founded a company worth $30,000. When one of his employees ran out of all his stock and cash, he was unfortunately hit. Winston was not afraid and used the remaining money to buy jewelry from real estate sales. He took the gems from the outdated environment and reshaped them into a modern style and sold them at high prices. His fame increased when he acquired Arabella Huntington’s famous jewelry collection. By 1932, his wealth and business had been rebuilt, and Harry Winston closed the Premier Diamond Company and opened Harry Winston Inc.. Winston continued to design elegant and timeless jewelry with real estate jewelry.

Harry Winston used his vision to make big deals and continued his success in the diamond industry. In 1935, he bought a 726-carat Jonker diamond for $700,000. This famous diamond is the seventh largest rough diamond on record. He sent it to the New York headquarters through the U.S. Post Office for a total of 64 cents. The diamond is cut into twelve individual gems, the largest being an emerald cut diamond of 125.35 carats. After buying and selling diamonds, Harry Winston’s fame continued to grow worldwide.

As the years passed, Harry Winston’s luck has been good. Highlights of these years include the 1940s, when Harry and his designers developed cluster technology, the style of the work is based on a single diamond rather than a metal setting, thereby maximizing the brilliance of the stone. Today, more than 70 years later, this design continues to this day.

Winston on the red carpet
We are all looking forward to the jewels worn by the stars on the red carpet. Many people borrow high fashion, which is a tradition when luxury Harry Winston lent diamonds to Jennifer Jones to win the Oscar in 1944. Jennifer won the best actress award that night. This move earned him the title of “Star Jeweler”.

“Talk to me, Harry Winston! Tell me everything!” Marilyn Monroe sang in the famous song “Diamonds Are Girls’ Best Friend” in the movie “Gentlemen prefer blondes.” The film was released in 1953, more than 20 years after Harry Winston opened a store, and is considered the “king of diamonds.”

Diamonds to the world
In 1958, Harry Winston gave a gift to the world by generously donating the Hope Diamond to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. With the Hope Diamond, the museum was able to establish their national gem collection.

In 1966, Harry Winston bought a 241 carat rough diamond. He cut it into flawless 69.42 carat pear-shaped diamonds. The diamond was sold to Harriet Annenberg Eames. She auctioned it to Cartier, who sold the diamond to Elizabeth Taylor’s husband Richard Burton for more than $1 million. Renamed to Taylor-Burton diamond, it was originally placed on a ring and later renamed as a necklace.

After working in the diamond industry for a lifetime, replica Harry Winston died in 1978 at the age of 82. His legacy continues through Harry Winston Inc.’s jewelry. Today, you can see his works worn by royalty, celebrities and museums are timeless works of art.

Richard Mille RM 11-03 Automatic Ultimate Edition

Buy Replica Richard Mille RM 011 watch RM 11-03 Flyback Chronograph LMC Titanium For Sale

Swan songs in the famous Richard Mille chronograph series are limited.

To celebrate the 13th anniversary of the establishment of the RM 011 chronograph, Richard Mille launched the latest RM 11-03 Automatic Ultimate Edition of the series.

The unique combination of TPT® carbon and turquoise TPT® quartz is novelty. The case is equipped with a self-winding RMAC1 with a flyback chronograph function, a large date window near 12 o’clock and a month display at 4 o’clock. The details of the movement are made of titanium, equipped with a double barrel and a 55-hour power reserve.

Richard Mille RM 11-03 McLaren Flyback Chronograph

McLaren Motor Company and Richard Mille unveiled their first timepiece at the 88th Geneva International Motor Show

When I received a call from Richard Mille to participate in this year’s Geneva Motor Show, I was pretty sure of one thing-the launched watch would not fly under the radar. Although guaranteed to be full of material innovation, it is almost inevitable that not everyone has a cup of tea. The brand new RM 11-03 does not disappoint.

Richard Mille (Richard Mille) and McLaren Automotive (McLaren Automotive) cooperated last year, this is their first watch produced as a team. This watch is the shared vision of McLaren Design Director Rob Melville and Richard Mille engineer Fabrice Namura.

If you buy a car, you will get the first discount on the same buy replicas watch (unfortunately, at least you can’t buy a watch now, not a car). The RMAC3 self-winding movement was first launched in 2016 and has a flyback chronograph and 55-hour power reserve.

Why this watch is important
Except that this is the first of the partners, the watch itself is still very angry. When two performance-oriented organizations come together, the results are extreme and correct. From a design point of view, the RM 11-03 is inspired by McLaren’s past racing cars. For example, the titanium putter looks like a McLaren 720S headlight. The shape of the titanium insert is similar to the intake pipe of the McLaren F1. The intricate grade 5 titanium crown is shaped like a McLaren wheel (with the McLaren logo on the bezel at 6 o’clock). fake watches uk

The case is interwoven with carbon fiber TPT and orange quartz TPT; TPT stands for Thin Ply Technology, which is a carbon fiber layering method first proposed by Richard Mille in 2013. The dark layer is carbon fiber, and the magma orange layer is silica fiber (orange is iconic for McLaren).

From an aesthetic point of view, this does not suit me, but I think the use of high-tech materials should be praised. Richard Mille (Richard Mille) actually made the new base plate and bridge frame for McLaren (RM 11-03 McLaren) grade 5 titanium alloy treated with PVD (all of which are to improve the function of the gear train). so cool.

Those familiar with RM11-02 ceramic and RM11-02 NPTP will recognize additional buttons at 9 o’clock (for setting the second time zone) and at 2 and 5 o’clock for the stop/start and reset functions of the chronograph . Like all Richard Mille movements, the RMAC3 movement is carefully chamfered and polished by hand. The dial has an annual calendar and oversized date, as well as a 12-hour chronograph and countdown counter, with yellow accents on the hour scale. If this is the beginning, it is difficult to imagine where these two next steps will go.

Franck Muller copy will sponsor the seventh edition of the “2020 Maya Mexico Rally”. This event has become the most important rolling museum of ancient motor sports in Latin America. The event will be held in Yucatan and Riviera Maya from August 29 to September 5.

The watchmaker celebrated the event by launching three limited edition watches. The new Rally Maya México 2020 series is an unprecedented combination of Vanguard Racing racing case and Crazy Hours complications.

The Crazy Time Complication consists of a jumping time module and an automatic movement. The hour hand jumps to indicate the correct hour hand digits, and the minute hand rotates around the dial in a traditional 60-minute cycle. The “crazy moment” follows the following sequence: each subsequent number is placed in an arc about 120 degrees from the previous number.

The Rally Maya México 2020 series combines the 44 mm Tonneau case of the Vanguard Racing series with Franck Muller’s iconic jumping time complication. The hand-drawn numbers are messy. The number 8 at 12 o’clock symbolizes a snake in the mysterious journey of Feather Feather Kukulkan.
