Luxury Brand Watches At Baselworld

No one thinks that fashion luxury is just the supporting role of BASELWORLD. The world’s watch industry, once dominated by professional watchmaking brands, has now been given a share of fashion luxury. CHANEL, GUCCI, and BLVGARI steadily occupy a considerable position on the first floor of Hall 1 of Baselworld. The air clock launched by HERMES, the tourbillon of CHANEL and the minute repeater of BLVGARI have strongly confirmed the fashion luxury brands. The determination and achievements to enter the professional watchmaking industry.

 Inheriting the brand’s exquisite and fashionable culture, creating a brand’s iconic exterior design, while equipped with professional, top-level, and complex movements, this is the ‘exquisite time’ shining on BASELWORLD.

 The entry of fashion luxury goods into the field of watchmaking dates back to the 1970s. At that time, the quartz movement hit the Swiss watchmaking industry. Because of its low price, accurate travel time and easy maintenance, the quartz movement was sought after by the market. Quartz movements have no technical requirements, as long as they have a good appearance, they can get good sales. And design is the strength of fashion brands. Relying on innate advantages, fashion luxury with fashion and jewelry as its main product lines, in order to expand its accessories and product lines, it has begun to enter the field of watches.

 At this time, most of the top French and Italian fashion and jewelry brands started to produce watches in the form of commissioned processing.

 In the past ten years, with the revival of the mechanical watch market, the export volume of Swiss watches has soared. Fashion and jewelry brands that have already started to cry in the watch market and have certain market experience are aware of the trend of the mechanized return of watches. Determined to go one step further in the manufacture of movements and gradually move towards the field of fine watchmaking.

 ‘The advantage of fashion luxury brands is their strong capital. They integrate the resources of the Swiss watchmaking industry well and can be quickly integrated into the field of high-end watches.’ Chang Wei, editor-in-chief of Perfecttime, said, ‘Each of these brands had It was cooperating with a Swiss watch factory, but at that time the resources were scattered, the industry was not systematic, and there was no complete series. Later, they began to acquire peripheral resources, such as watch band factories and watch case factories, to improve themselves through controlling shares. The watchmaking path. ‘

 In 2000, Bvlgari restructured the new company after acquiring the top Swiss high-end watch manufacturing brand, and began to focus on the development and production of movements. The previous watch business was basically design. In 2005, Bulgari once again acquired CadransDesign, a Swiss-made dial, and Prestiged ‘Or, which produces steel bracelets and precious metal bracelets, and established its own complete watch production line. By 2007, it acquired 100% of FingerS.A. Later, Bulgari finally established itself in the development and production of high-end complex watches.

 Hermes also gradually occupied the fine watchmaking industry with a similar strategy. From the establishment of a watchmaking workshop in 1978, to the launch of a Dressage watch with Hermes H1928 movement in cooperation with the Vaucher movement factory in 2003, the company invested 25 million Swiss francs in 2006 and bought a 25% stake in the Vaucher movement factory. Last year, it acquired a 32.5% stake in JosephErard, a well-known Swiss watchmaking company with a history of more than 125 years. Hermès finally consolidated its position in the fine watchmaking industry.

 With the backing of fashion luxury brands backed by the group, it is relatively easy to enter the field of fine watchmaking. For example, Louis Vuitton and DIOR of LVMH, although they have not entered the field of professional watchmaking for a long time, but because of the integration of resources and technology of professional watchmaking brands such as Zenith and TAG Heuer, plus their own design advantages, Quickly entered the fine watchmaking industry.

 This year is the third time that Louis Vuitton has participated in BASELWORLD. Since 2002, Louis Vuitton has entered the glorious watch industry and launched the Tambour series. This year is the eleventh year. In 2013, it participated in the third time at BASELWORLD to launch the TamborTwinChrono double. The chronograph seconds display is the first in the world. The first mechanical movement to achieve dual chronograph seconds displays its strength in the field of professional watchmaking.
