The guy on the broken bike with a Patek Philippe


Someone once said to me: how can a watch media person be convincing without having bought a proper watch, so I’m going to roll up my sleeves and make a big move.

The story starts with my bike ……

I’m lazy, I’ve been working for almost 10 years and I don’t even have a driving licence (I can say that I like bikes because I’m fascinated by the most intuitive mechanical beauty, haha ……)?

Of course, there’s nothing special about a bike, but the point is that it’s 20 years old and every time I ride it everything rings but the bell. The best part was when I sped to the LV shop for the opening and the whole place was shocked (not to mention the fact that the chain came off once in the middle of the ride and I did the manual winding job with ease ……)

“It’s time for you to change your car!” I’ve heard this at least 100 times over the years. So it was held in until 2009 when I got an extra Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso on my wrist and brought back over 80,000 from abroad. Then everyone was so relieved – it turned out that this loser was so desperate to buy a watch that he didn’t even bother to buy a car!

However, the loser is also not satisfied, immediately, the desire for a second watch came. For example,fake iwc uk at first glance, he took a look at Breguet’s Queen of Naples, with a domestic price of 280,000.

Goose eggs, goose eggs, my first reaction was to look for the cheapest price by all means.

So while I waited and tried it on again and again, I was actually looking for something else until I came across the Patek Philippe 4936 (hereinafter affectionately called PP).

This is the gold version of the 4936, and the crummy pictures really ruin it for life.

To be honest, the 4936 is not a first look watch for women, it still looks a bit unisex and not in the same league as a goose egg. The person who recommended it to me once said that it was “the best value for money for a woman in the PP complication”. After all, it is an annual calendar watch, so people whose knowledge of mechanical watches is limited to manual winding will find new fun – taking a needle and poking it, adjusting the date, day of the week, is a sense of involvement, not, moreover, will give people the illusion of “ah ah so I also know watches”! ……

More importantly, after spending all that money ($260,000 abroad at the time), I didn’t want to buy a vase that was only suitable for certain occasions, or that I would feel it was time for a new one after a few years. So the idea of taking one step forward was particularly strong – maybe in the next 5 to 10 years I wouldn’t buy a new watch, so the 4936 could be a milestone marker, or even the last watch, just so I wouldn’t have any regrets anyway.

The 4936 is available in yellow and rose gold. The white strap in rose gold was too “flashy” and, in the words of one person, “too much like Folli Follie”, so I went for the yellow gold version, which is rarely chosen.

The light curry strap wasn’t my favourite either, it was a bit old-fashioned, but I liked the watch itself, so I didn’t mind (it was only when I saw the updated 4947 that I realised the colour of the strap was no big deal at all).

This is the 4947 I saw at Baselworld this year and I couldn’t take my eyes off it, the strap is much more useful than I thought.

Here’s the 4936R after the strap change, which immediately gives it a sense of calmness.

I spent an hour or two puzzling over this watch: the diamonds and mother-of-pearl face shone too brightly in the sunlight, and the raised indexes were very three-dimensional. At that moment, I felt like I was a Grandeur counting gold. ……

Not long after I bought the 4936, I actually changed my bike, but only from a broken bike (I had to take the chain off at least once a day on the way to work, which was also drunk) to a light mountain bike. Someone said “I can’t imagine wearing a bike on my wrist”, but the most logical explanation is that the person didn’t think a bike was that important.

It’s just a matter of choice. You can worry about your car, I’m willing to be thin for my watch, the joy of life is that it’s supposed to be diverse.

Then, I’m going to put on my recommendations, and this issue is all about women’s watches, so you can get started quickly and get PP.

In addition to his identity as co-founder of watchstate.com, he has been collecting PP since the 1990s.

Some people say that Patek Philippe is the last surviving myth, but of course “myth” only means something to the biggest fans. In my lifetime, I’m guessing I’ll only ever play with one or two pieces, just for the hell of it.

A was worried about this recommendation, and decided to keep it within 400,000 yuan in China. In his opinion, the first thing to do is to have the basic functions of a watch, plus a single calendar, in line with most people’s habits. The annual calendar counts as stepping into the threshold of complications, but that’s where it ends, leaving the rest of the stuffy stuff to the landed gentry.

Minimalist, with two rows of small diamonds as part of the design and full of sentimentality, the Twenty-4 collection has been quite popular since its creation. Think it’s quartz? Not many girls like to wind it up and set the time themselves. Of course, there are mechanical models and full diamond models that are expensive.

The women’s version of the Nautilus is smaller than the men’s version, so many girls can hold it. Plus, it’s a fully automatic 324 movement, so let’s enter the world of mechanics together.

Unfortunately, I’m a stubborn maniac and I had to have the men’s version, so I never thought about the women’s Nautilus, but I finally found out why – I guess I subconsciously thought that if I wanted to buy a new watch one day, I could get rid of it and give it to my husband to use. ……

I think it’s a good idea for girls to choose a model with diamonds to reflect the flirtatious feeling.

This is the two-handed one with the pearl tourbillon 240 automatic movement, a very simple and elegant design. After all, in a small dial, another three-handed one would look messy.

Only 30,000 more expensive than the PP5146, but with more mother-of-pearl faces and a circle of diamonds, a better value for money, an annual calendar watch, complications women can have as well, the best one-step option.

I’m going to keep talking: A said secretly, one day my wife won’t like this watch anymore, so I’ll change the strap to a men’s watch. This idea is the same as mine, simply the highest level of money-saving fine (belong to spend 200,000 to save a few pieces of goods ah), to buy watches are suitable for both men and women, the future clothes can be mixed with the other half to wear, from the male and female, unified ……
