Piaget Bracelet

Piaget produces one of the best design wrist bracelet as shown, made in 1990 white 18CT white gold.

It was expensive to buy, and the white gold is made with good ingrdient such that the colour does not change after so many years.

I went to Goldsmith , Henry told me that it values about HK$5,500 in case sell the gold.

Blancpain started the watch manufacturing since 1735. An early small Swiss Watch company that they actually using a farm house as the factory.

I had the very first Blancpain watch in 1990. I had found that the watch was very accurate.
As I always mentioned, the Accuracy of a watch reflects how seriously the watchsmith and Engineer maintin the component precision, asembly process, material studies, material selection and experinece and Skill that they commit to Make that Watch.... I am expecting a Good watch should have at least 30 PPM accuracy per day as an average for time taking in 2 weeks, My Blanpain can make it.. and Surprisingly until today I still had it running as good as perfect as it was purchased 20 years ago....

Green is Rolex, Rolex is Green

As a Tradition, Rolex used to Apply Green Colour on their watches, Watch boxes, warranty Certificates and and Catalogue.
This is a 1982 Rolex Day Date with Green Rolex enamel Dial... 18Ct Solid Gold with rubies and Diamonds on the bezel. Looks like new!
This kind of enamel Dial surface will have crack lines after 15-20 years. This Sample does also have some lines of micro crack on the dial. That may be due to the enamel process has some impurity or may be the delimination between the enamel and the dial base material after years of Temperature cycles.

The cause of the crack line is unknown to me. Anyway, this crack lines is the reflection of natural aging of this Beautiful Rolex.

Seems there is no perfect enamel dial. I am not sure if the new enamel process is improved or not?

How to tell a Cartier is Fake!?

Let's look at the Roman figure VII, the V is consisting of a word "Cartier" on it Marked with a RED circle as shown.

I found this when I got my first Santos Cartier watch in 1978, this Tradition remains. Some of the Lady watch the Roman figure XI, The " / " is made up with a "Cartier"

The fake watch had a hard time to print this small "Cartier' on the dial... Nowadays I beleive the Fake watch are made up this cartier as part of the roman Figure, but they are not as clear and as Precise as the Original Cartier... It is easy to tell ...

A Italian Friend gave me some watches. The Monte Carlo, which is only available for sales in Italy.
