Talk About ‘impressionism’ In Watch

In the traditional top watchmaking brands, the brand’s interpretation of fine watchmaking technology is reflected in two aspects: in terms of technology, it can be basically summarized as lighter, thinner and more complex; In terms of appearance, it pursues more exquisite visual design. Although the watch is small, it is a highly comprehensive art carrier. Many of our familiar art forms, such as music, painting and engraving, can be perfectly integrated with the watch, allowing the watch to function as a timepiece. At the same time, it has become a diverse art.

When it comes to art, I think most people think of painting first. The ‘marriage’ of paintings and clocks has a long history-as early as the Qing Dynasty, Chinese emperors began to collect clocks with enamel decoration. Today, many top watch brands also launch a small number of watches with enamel-painted dials every year. These watches are drawn by hand by a skilled enamel micro-painting master, which requires a lot of time and energy to draw each dial. The models are not only timeless, but also have a high collection value because they are scarce.

As a long-established art, painting has a very rich genre. For most friends who have little research on fine art, ‘Impressionism’ is definitely one of the most familiar art genres. Of course, I am no exception … you ask What is Impressionism? Hey … Do you think I really understand … Du Niang said this: ‘The common feature of Impressionist paintings is that the strokes are unretouched and the composition is broad and boundless, especially focusing on changes in light and shadow, the impression of time, and Use ordinary things in life as objects. ‘ Still don’t understand? It doesn’t matter whether you understand it or not … Anyway, I don’t understand it too much …

Today’s watch house will lead you to talk about the cha (bu) pie (duo) in the watch.

Speaking of Impressionism, even those who do not know art must know Monet’s ‘Impressions of Sunrise.’ This work is also the symbol of the Impressionist School. In 1874, Monet initiated and organized the first Impressionist Exhibition. In this exhibition, a ‘Sunrise · Impression’ by Monet caused the European art scene. Strong shock. This picture depicts the early morning of the Seine when the sun is just rising. Because the painter has to finish the work before the light changes in a short moment, the picture cannot be drawn very carefully.

After ‘Sunrise Impressions’ was exhibited, it was publicly attacked by the academy. Reporter Louis Leroy of the ‘Noise’ magazine satirized Monet’s ‘negation to beauty and truth’ with ‘impression’, so ‘impressionism’ became the crown of this school. According to my understanding, Impressionism is about to draw pictures based on the impressions in its mind. It does not stick to traditional brushwork. The style of painting is extensive. Most of them have a strong sense of light and color.
