    Versatile Post-90s Watch Enthusiast

    Over the years, I have made many friends because of watches. Eating, talking to the table, and talking about the mountain are three things that cousins ​​often do. Among the cousins ​​I know, sunny days are rare after the 90s. Although born in 1993, he has a rare maturity usually in the post-90s generation. Sunny is not only assertive, but also very considerate to others. Before the two glasses of cocktails made by Sunny on the interview, Sunny made the cocktail herself. Two people, two glasses of wine, and a few watches, let’s drink and talk. So the story begins. Switzerland Travel 36mm mm Rolex Datejust, which was associated with Audemars Piguet, was bought by Sunny’s father in the early days of his business. In his father’s day, not many brands had entered the Chinese market. Although his father didn’t know much about watches, he knew Rolex was a good watch, so he bought a gold Rolex. The face of Datejust’s dial features the choice of gold because gold represents wealth and steel means quality. This Rolex is precise, durable, and trustworthy, and has accompanied Sunny Father to this day. The durable Rolex started buying watches on a sunny day, starting in 2013 after two years of work. The sunny day at that time, just after resigning, everything in the family was not smooth, and it happened to be another 20th birthday, so I wanted to go out and relax. The 36mm Rolex Golden Datejust said to leave, and reported to Switzerland on a sunny day with a group tour. The family asked if they needed to buy a watch on a sunny day. At first, he didn’t take his time to buy a watch, but during the ten hours on the plane, he began to struggle. After all, it is rare to go to Switzerland once, or just buy one. I tried on a customer who was a father and friend of the Portuguese Chronometer Chronometer, wearing a perpetual calendar of IWC. Since then, IWC has made a good first impression on sunny days. So, after arriving in Switzerland, went straight to the watch shop and won the Portuguese timekeeper. The details of the needles and disks have to say that the dial surface design of the Portuguese meter is very elegant. Although the movement is derived from ETA7750, it has been modified, and the layout of the entire surface is very different from the standard ETA7750. The three-dimensional Arabic numerals, combined with the willow needles, add a touch of refinement to the watch. The current domestic price of this watch is 56,000 yuan. The Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars watch, the dial is polished with radial pattern and bought together with Portuguese meter, is an Audemars Piguet. It is also from this watch that, on sunny days, appreciate Audemars Piguet, study Audemars Piguet, obsessed with Audemars Piguet, and later become an uncompromising Audemars Piguet. Fate is sometimes difficult to tell. Sunny and Audemars Piguet really have a fate. Saying that the bus was sunny that day, traveling in Switzerland. Occasionally saw a travel magazine in the car. Bored, I flipped around, just to see that there is a ranking similar to the domestic ‘top ten watches’. Among the AP words on the crown, Patek Philippe ranked first. Followed closely by Audemars Piguet. After a little understanding, Sunny has a kind of love for the Audemars Piguet brand. Because in the Audemars Piguet brand, Sunny seems to have found his family’s shadow. Audemars Piguet is a family-owned, independent brand that has been in existence for 141 years and has been living in Brassus, Switzerland, in the Jura Valley. This is very similar to the sunny family background. The independent brand Audemars Piguet is run by the family. Since its establishment in 141, Sunny is a native of Shanghai. His family can be traced back to the Qing Dynasty. Ever since Empress Dowager Cixi, Sunny’s grandparents have begun to live in temples in Shanghai and have never moved elsewhere. Therefore, Sunny feels that her family and Audemars Piguet seem to have reached a tacit understanding. In addition, Audemars Piguet has exquisite workmanship and great care in details, which is difficult for many brands to match. These are also the important reasons why Sunny loves Audemars Piguet. The golden oscillating weight with the Audemars Piguet emblem engraved on it, I also like to bring a good impression of Audemars Piguet, and chose Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars on a sunny day. This watch is elegant in shape and side-mounted, and uses the classic 3120 automatic winding movement, which is extremely polished. Sunny said that because Jules Audemars is not Audemars Piguet’s best-selling model, the output may not be too much. The current domestic price of this watch is 168,000 yuan. After Jules Audemars and the shirt fit very closely, after buying the IWC and Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars, they fell in love with the watch on a sunny day and began to study and study. The octagon, I love you at first sight when I saw the octagonal Audemars Piguet in the store on a sunny day. But at that time, he was not obsessed with watches. As time passed, he gradually forgot about them. After the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph fell in love with the watch on a sunny day, I often went to see the watch when everything was fine. As his understanding of Audemars Piguet deepened, his love for the brand grew. In a chance coincidence, the sunny day saw the octagon again—the Royal Oak offshore 26470 with stainless steel case. This evokes his fond memories and also deeply hits the ‘poison’ of this watch. The unforgettable ‘octagonal’ Audemars Piguet octagonal watch, first started in 1972. At that time, the field of fine watchmaking was ‘occupied’ by round precious metal watches. With great creativity and extraordinary design skills, the talent of the table altar, Jero Zunda, brought stainless steel, octagonal royal oak trees to the world, and brought unprecedented shock to the uniform table altar. The Royal Oak offshore type, which is also octagonal, is a series derived from the Royal Oak. The 26470 case and crown were polished in March of this year, and the sunny day finally ‘detoxified’ smoothly, and won 26470 of this stainless steel case. Sunny did not choose the precious metal model because he felt that Audemars Piguet’s steel watch was more flavorful and could truly reflect the value of the watch. Before buying this watch, Sunny also considered models such as Audemars Piguet 26400. In his opinion, 26400 is everything, it is perfect, but unfortunately the oscillating weight is gray-plated, and it does not make people look amazing. The biggest feeling of getting started is domineering. The 26470 uses a gold rotor, which is also engraved with Audemars Piguet’s family crest, blending noble materials and exquisite craftsmanship, which makes sunny days love it. This is also the watch most often worn on sunny days. At Sunny House, I tried on this 26470 and the biggest feeling was domineering. The tough appearance, black dial, delicate polishing, reveals unparalleled temptation. If the charming ‘Oak’ is to say the classic of Audemars Piguet, everyone will agree that it is a Royal Oak. This ‘oak tree’ vertical and horizontal watch altar is more than 40 years old, it is one of the few legends. The Royal Oak 15400’s dial pattern comes from the engraving machine. It likes Audemars Piguet. It has always wanted a full-steel watch with a steel shell and steel belt. This seems to be no more suitable than the Royal Oak 15400. So, of course I have to win. On a sunny day, the biggest difference between Royal Oak and offshore is the dial. The offshore dial has a check pattern printed on it for a slightly three-dimensional impression, giving it a youthful and sporty atmosphere. The dial of the Royal Oak is engraved to enhance the three-dimensional sense and layering of the check. The tough, classic Royal Oak also appreciates the polishing of the Royal Oak case and bracelet on sunny days. The entire bracelet is superbly polished. It’s not like some brands, it just tastes like a dragonfly. Sunny felt that it was not those brands that couldn’t do it, but because the output was too large, it was difficult to balance the craftsmanship. Royal Oak’s bracelet details Audemars Piguet has polished the place to be polished regardless of labor costs. From drawing to chamfering, Royal Oak is meticulous, which is not something every brand can do. Therefore, sunny days have a soft spot for Royal Oak. Take a look at the feeling of getting started. Sunny has a dream of buying a watch in his mind, which is to buy all the major series of Audemars Piguet, and buy one for each series. The millennial series is a watch that Sunny wants to buy for his future wife. As for the watch that Sunny wants to buy recently, it is a 15202 replica of the original 1972 Royal Oak. Sunny Day is also looking forward to the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak series six years later. He said that as long as it is not too difficult to start, he will definitely start. The master of poker The amazing thing about bartenders is that Sunny is not only a watch enthusiast, but also researches on poker and cocktails. In the earliest days, he learned magic in sunny weather. Because magic used poker, it slowly developed into interest. Sunny revealed a poker skill on the spot. Before playing with watches, Sunny played poker for several years. He started playing poker in 2008. This hobby persisted for eight years. The cost of collecting poker on a sunny day adds up to almost an expensive watch. For poker, sunny days are very enlightening. He believes that playing poker, just like watchmaking, also requires years of boring practice. Only in this way can it be handy. Talking about it, Sunny performed me a poker trick, which opened my eyes, and I felt that it should be a magician to interview today. Making cocktails is also a good thing for sunny days. On sunny days, I like to taste some wines. If I drink too much, I like to try. Through self-study and communication with the bartender, he gradually mastered the skill of preparing cocktails. These cocktails look terrific. When they are at home, they often show their hands on sunny days. Especially at night, they often use cocktails because it is not easy to fall asleep while drinking tea. Among sunny hobbies, I find it most practical to make cocktails. Because when we talk, cocktails are both thirsty and delicious. It seems a little mysterious and full of fragrance. Sunny cocktails are quite rare. His favorite cocktail is Margaret, known as the cocktail queen. In addition, Mojito, Martini, Tequila Sunrise, etc. are also favorite wines on sunny days. I don’t know what wine is, but I know that they have a common name called good drink. In sunny eyes, cocktails and watches have something in common. A good cocktail, like a delicate watch, pays special attention to materials and details. He used Long Island Ice Tea as an example. Usually small bars add cola to cocktails, but good bars use black rum and soda, and absolutely don’t use cola. Only in this way can the unique taste be revealed. Take a group photo for the three hobbies and emphasize the sentence again and again: details determine success or failure. Whether one thing is done well or not depends entirely on the details. In his opinion, this is true of watches, as are cocktails.

Solid white 18K gold becomes the base of the dark blue enamel, and the embossed stars on it continue the gorgeous shape of the moon phase display.
