On November 9th, this year’s OnlyWatch charity auction will be held in Geneva, and related brands have successively announced the watches participating in the auction. Some time ago, Tudor released the Qicheng Biwan Ceramics No. 1 watch specially created for OnlyWatch2019.
The black ceramic case has a diameter of 41 mm, combined with brushed and sandblasted finishes. The steel crown and case back are matt black PVD, and the bezel is PVD-coated titanium with matte black ceramic inserts. Most of the appearance of this watch is the same as the standard Qicheng Biwan steel watch, but the whole body is completely black and highly recognizable.
Generally speaking, watches with monochrome, especially all-black designs, have low contrast and are not pleasing; however, Qicheng Biwan Ceramic One watch combines different material types and retouching processes, which looks like an all-black appearance. In fact, it is full of dynamic changes, showing the unique Kai Cheng Biwan aesthetic concept. In addition, this watch has an excellent fluorescent effect in the dark.
This watch was valued at 4,500-5,500 Swiss francs before the auction, but it is entirely possible to raise more money for medical research by the Monaco Muscular Atrophy Association. After all, the Qicheng Biwan No. 1 watch created by Tudor for OnlyWatch in 2015 had been valued at over a hundred times and was sold at 375,000 Swiss francs (3,500-4,500 pre-sale estimates).
