The world is changing all the time and the pandemic preventive measures drove people to re-explore the new lifestyle. With Taiwan’s brilliant pandemic prevention results, many boutique brands chose to present their annual new works in Taiwan instead of the Swiss watch fairs as in the past. Brands including Chopard, Piaget, Harry Winston and BVLGARI, etc. have introduced to Taiwan collectors their unique, rarely seen one-of-a-kind premium works.
看好收藏家對鑽石藝術的品味深度，伯爵Limelight Gala系列藍寶石及鑽石頂級珠寶腕錶與海瑞溫斯頓Premier系列Hypnotic Star 36毫米機械腕錶等唯一大作都在台灣首次公開。前者以欖尖形藍寶石縈繞圓形美鑽，體現遊走於時計和首飾之間的設計，令此於1973年初問世的裝飾藝術風格之作再現傳奇風采；海瑞溫斯頓的Hypnotic Star腕錶則以鑽石和尖晶石的交錯疊置令錶盤奇妙華麗，令人詠嘆。
煥發能量、美麗雋永的紅寶石藝術也是珠寶愛好者收藏的對象。寶格麗Serpenti Misteriosi Intrecciati神秘珠寶錶從典藏系列汲取靈感，用珠飾交織錶鍊造型，雙Serpenti蛇首的其中一個藏有錶盤，兩蛇頭以軸相連，佩戴上完美纏繞手腕，魅力誘人。蕭邦亦帶來一款獲「公平採礦」認證金質原料打造的紅地毯系列18K玫瑰金腕錶，紅色珍珠母貝面盤搭配錶殼上、下個鑲嵌一顆八角形切割莫桑比紅寶石，搭配28顆梨形切割鑽石以及32顆圓型切割鑽石；其「公平採礦」認證訴說原料採收合乎社會責任與環境意識。
宇舶（Hublot）與寶璣（Breguet）各以「專賣店限量款」為號召，誘人親身感受結合頂級製錶、珠寶鑲嵌等多種精湛工藝的全新作品。宇舶引進由藍寶石切割製作而成Big Bang Unico藍寶石彩虹腕錶，帶來顛覆製錶思維的「全透明」腕錶；42毫米錶徑引領中性時尚，錶圈鑲嵌48顆彩色寶石襯托透明質感，腕錶構造和機芯一覽無遺。寶璣Tradition傳世系列7038女士腕錶以當代設計演繹品牌創辦人於18世紀末構思的美學，錶盤正面展現機芯零件與運作之美，大溪地珍珠母貝偏心錶盤飾有「巴黎釘紋」機刻雕花，機芯的金質自動盤亦以機刻雕花玫瑰圖案呼應錶盤的發條盒裝飾。
針對男性收藏家，江詩丹頓（Vacheron Constantin）為閣樓工匠主題再添四款獨一無二的「The Singing Birds」腕錶，錶盤左側以精湛的琺瑯彩繪工藝描繪正在歡歌的靈鳥，與右側運用機刻雕花裝飾的「衛星傳動式」時間顯示相映成趣，刻畫出「蜂鳥」、「冠藍鳥」、「藍山雀」及「知更鳥」的靈動姿態；品牌在台首先引進「藍山雀」款式，全球僅此一款。
大膽創新和華麗高雅獨樹一幟的羅杰杜彼（Roger Dubuis）與輪胎專家Pirelli倍耐力聯手推出全球限量僅8只Excalibur Pirelli Ice Zero 2鏤空雙飛行陀飛輪，目前亦有一只在台；此作散發運動美學和聞名遐邇的鏤空標誌，搭載獲日內瓦印記認證的RD105SQ機芯並配有雙飛行陀飛輪。錶帶設計別出心裁：黑色橡膠錶帶嵌襯倍耐力冠軍輪胎材質與精鋼鑲釘，一如為駕馭極限天候所創的「Ice Zero 2」雪釘輪胎。
Chopard introduces pleasant energy with the childlike Animal World Collection, capturing people’s hearts with the world’s one and only Mysterious Hedgehog Wristwatch; the body is embedded with charming moonstones, applying unique hand diamond setting techniques to endow the hedgehog with charming radiance. The head of the hedgehog is set with diamonds, with two radiant sapphire eyes, while a secret lock is hidden under the tip of the nose set with brown diamonds, where the main body can be opened by touching the tip of the hedgehog’s nose to reveal a cute little hedgehog clinging onto the dial with the four claws; the dial is filled with diamonds to demonstrate the resplendence of the artwork.
Having optimism towards the collectors’ depth of taste towards diamond art, the sapphire and diamond high jewelry wristwatches from Piaget Limelight Gala collection and the Hypnotic Star Automatic 36mm wristwatch from the Harry Winston Premier collection, etc. are all publicly presented in Taiwan for the very first time. The former one is surrounded with round diamonds with marquise cut sapphires to actualize the design that wanders between timepiece and jewelry, reproducing the legendary resplendence of this decorative art style work which made its debut in 1973. The Harry Winston Hypnotic Star wristwatch used an overlapping set of diamonds and spinels to accomplish the appraisable marvelously resplendent dial.
Energy-evoking and eternally beautiful ruby art is also the collection target for jewelry lovers. BVLGARI Serpenti Misteriosi Intrecciati Secret Watch was inspired by archives collection, using interweaving beads on the strap/bracelet, while the dial is hidden in one of two Serpenti snakeheads; the snakeheads are linked on an axis to perfectly wrap around the wrist with an attractive charisma.
Chopard also introduced an 18K rose gold wristwatch from the Red Carpet Collection created using “Fairmined” certified gold raw materials; the red mother-of-pearl dial is complemented by one Octavia cut Mozambique ruby each on the upper and lower side of the casing, with 28 pear-cut diamonds and 32 round cut diamonds. The “Fairmined” certification depicts the mining of the raw materials complies with social liabilities and environmental awareness.
Hublot and Breguet attract people to personally experience several types of exquisitely crafted brand new works combining premium timepieces and jewelry based on “Specialty-Store Limited Edition Models.” Hublot has introduced the Big Bang Unico Sapphire Rainbow wristwatch made with sapphire cut, presenting the “completely transparent” wristwatch subverting the traditional watch-making concepts; the 42mm watch diameter leads the neutral fashion, while the bezel is set with 48 colored gemstones to accentuate the transparent quality, such that the wristwatch structure and caliber can be seen clearly. Breguet Tradition Dame 7038 lady’s wristwatch demonstrates the brand founder’s aesthetics at the end of the 18th century with contemporary design, where the dial presents the magnificence of the caliber components and the operations, while the off-centered dial-in Tahitian mother-of-pearl is decorated with Clous de Paris guilloche pattern, whereas the gold rotor embellished with a rosette guilloche motif corresponds with the decoration of the barrel on the dial.
Targeted at male watch collectors, Vacheron Constantin has added four models of one-of-a-kind “The Singing Birds” wristwatches to the Les Cabinotiers collection, where the left side of the dial with exquisite enamel painting depicts pleasant singing birds, forming an interesting correspondence with the “satellite-driven” hours and minutes time indicator on the right, demonstrating the vivid postures of “hummingbird,” “blue jay,” “blue tit” and “robin.” The brand has first introduced the “blue tit” model to Taiwan, which is the one and only model in the world.
The bold, innovative, gorgeous, elegant and unique Roger Dubuis joined forces with the tire expert, Pirelli to launch the global limited 8 pieces Excalibur Pirelli Ice Zero 2 Double Flying Tourbillon, with only one piece in Taiwan at the present. This work gives out a sports look in the famous skeletonized logo, using the RD105SQ caliber certified with Geneva Seal together with the Double Flying Tourbillon. The unique strap design in studded black rubber accentuates the champion tire material of Pirelli, resembling the “Ice Zero 2” tire developed for high performance on ice in the most extreme climate conditions.
