A. Lange & Söhne released a unique edition of the Lange 1 Time Zone in honey gold to celebrate the 22-year anniversary of the very first Lange collection of the company’s modern day era.
The watch was released October 24, on the same date in 1994 when the German watchmaker held a press conference in the Dresden Residential Palace to unveil its initial watches since the re-forming of the company.
A. Lange & Söhne’s founder, Ferdinand Adolph Lange, is credited with helping to create a watchmaking sector in the German city of Glashütte close to Dresden in 1845. The company’s watchmaking facility was bombed in the course of Globe War II and the post-war Soviet administration expropriated the company’s house. That’s when the Lange brand ceased to exist.
Following the collapse of the East German government, Walter Lange, the excellent-grandson of the company’s founder, and his partner Günter Blümlein re-formed the firm in 1990 and presented its very first timepieces four years later.
The clearly organized dial of the Lange 1 Time Zone supplies a reading of the property time and the time in a second time zone. The time zone is set with a lateral pusher. It advances the rotating city ring with the 24 spot names from west to east. On the ring, Dresden—instead of Berlin as in the normal version—represents Central European Time. In addition, the hour hand on the small subsidiary dial moves forward by one step with every use of the pusher. A synchronization mechanism tends to make it attainable to transfer the zone time on the subsidiary dial to the principal dial.
Subtle color modifications in the design of the city ring differentiate it from the standard version. The dots among the city names and GMT are blue instead of red. The previously black peripheral ring of the second time zone has the same blue hue as well.
The 41.9mm case is created of 18k honey gold, A. Lange & Söhn’s proprietary gold alloy. The watch is powered by the hand-finished in-home caliber L031.1 with a 3-day energy reserve.
Limited to one hundred pieces, it is obtainable exclusively in the 17 A. Lange & Söhne boutiques worldwide.
It is merely named, Cuore, the Italian word for heart, and this certain heart has a beat.
The distinguishing function of the Cuore Ferragamo timepiece is a heart on the dial above six ‘clock. The heart beats by opening and closing after per second, powered by a Swiss quartz movement. The user controls the patented function by pressing the crown. The time is set with a button at two ‘clock employing a unique heart-shaped tool. The off-centre hours and minutes indicator is embellished by a circle of diamonds or an engraved Clou de Paris motif, a guilloché pattern of hollowed lines that intersect to type tiny pyramidal shapes. The Ferragamo” logo seems on the dial at 3 ‘clock.
The other feature of the dial and the silver 39mm case is the subtle appearance of the iconic Ferragamo Gancino, the shape of a hook utilised as the symbol of the fashion brand.
The watch was introduced in March at the Baselworld watch and jewelry show and was available considering that June. Nonetheless, events had been held in cities about the planet to formally introduce the solution. Wednesday was the U.S.’s turn as the watch was introduced during an event held at the Hotel Eventi in New York.
The watch is obtainable with a bi-colour gold plated bracelet or a crocodile print calfskin strap in yellow, black, red, purple, pink and grey. It can be bought at Salvatore Ferragamo boutiques, authorized retailers or on-line from the Ferragamo site The cost runs from $1,595 to $two,995.
Paolo Marai, president and CEO of the Timex Group Swiss Luxury Division—which manages the watch company for luxury brands Salvatore Ferragamo and other luxury fashion brands, through licensing agreements—says the watch is designed to be presented a present, which is in line with the trends for style watches, in which far more than than 50 percent are purchased as gifts.
It also is in line with the trend to put on watches as an accessory, he says.
Brands such as ours, fashion brands, the design is far more relevant than the movement inside,” he said.
Paolo Marai, president and CEO of Timex Group Swiss Luxury Division
The prestigious Hall 1 of Baselworld could have far more empty space than originally planned as four style watch brands are the most recent to pull out of the 2017 edition of the world’s largest watch and jewelry show.
The Timex Group Swiss Luxury Division—which manages the watch organization for luxury brands Salvatore Ferragamo, Versace, Versus and Nautica via licensing agreements—is the most current to announce that it is leaving the annual fair held in Basel, Switzerland.
Paolo Marai, president and CEO of the division of the Timex Group, in an exclusive interview, mentioned the $3 million investment into the show could be much better spent in other places of its international business. The 4 brands occupied Hall 1.1, the second floor of the hall committed to global” watch and jewelry brands.
I believe that Baselworld is a large investment for everyone and is in my opinion losing some effectiveness,” he mentioned. It utilised to be quite important in diverse levels. Initial, it was a great chance to meet journalists but they’re coming significantly less and much less to Baselworld. And even these who come are decreasing the time they are staying—running from one particular appointment to the next.”
He continued, Second, in the past we used to meet a lot of retailers. This year not a single single nation sent retailers. So what you meet in Baselworld are distributors. But we know the distributors. I don’t need to go to Baselworld for that.”

Marai says the changing luxury company demands that luxury brands, especially fashion brands, want to be closer to the customer. He argues Baselworld isn’t an effective way to do this.
Baselworld is becoming a lot more of a location to show off. I am there simply because I want to show that I’m at Basel rather than carrying out something that is really successful toward the end customer,” stated Marai, a native of Milan who now lives in Lugano, Switzerland, where the Timex Group Swiss Luxury Division is situated. We need to have to move the needle and be close to the finish consumer…. I can put in the same quantity of funds to be closer to the finish consumer and be far more effective…. It is a expense I do not think we can afford any longer.
He added, I’m not the only one (leaving) Baselworld. Plenty of brands have decided to step out of there. When the marketplace is suffering I believe you want to attempt anything new. It is worth it for us to do one thing diverse.”
In Could, luxury watch brands, Ulysse Nardin and Girard-Perregaux, announced that they have been exiting Baselworld to exhibit at the Salon International de Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), which is held January in Geneva. Each brands—owned by Kering, the French luxury goods holding company—occupied the most prestigious space at Baselworld, Hall 1., the first floor of the Worldwide Hall exactly where the most prestigious independent and corporate-owned watch brands are situated.
Watch, jewelry and gem companies have been leaving Baselworld considering that the trade show unveiled its $454.5 million upgrade to the Messe Basel fair complex in 2013. The new renovations came with hefty value increases for exhibition space as the trade show began positioning itself as a luxury occasion. In response, in 2013 there have been 355 fewer exhibitors, mostly smaller sized players and these who supply goods and services within the trade. Nevertheless, a few massive brands also balked at the new asking value. International jewelry brand, David Yurman, was maybe the most higher-profile company to leave the fair in 2013.
The modify did attract some luxury brands, most notably Graff Diamonds, which started exhibiting at Baselworld in 2014 at Hall 1.1.

Meanwhile, UBM Asia established Jewellery & Gem Fair – Europe” in 2014 in Freiburg, Germany. The dates and location line up nicely with Baselworld. Freiburg is significantly less than an hour away from Basel, Switzerland. Several of the jewelry, gem and watch trade organizations that used to exhibit at Baselworld now exhibit at the new show.
In spite of the problems, Baselworld remains the world’s largest watch and jewelry fair. It is also the most essential watch and jewelry show in the globe for new solution introductions and for international exposure. Show officials mentioned in 2016 attracted 145,000 attendees—who contain representatives from exhibiting firms, purchasers and other visitors—a three % decline from 2015. There have been about 1,500 exhibitors. The number of journalists covering the occasion improved three percent to about 4,400 from 70 nations.
It’s not just Baselworld. Massive and tiny jewelry and watch trade shows throughout the world have been struggling to locate their footing. The September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, the world’s biggest fine jewelry trade fair, reported attendance declines for two consecutive years. In the U.S., JCK Las Vegas (the largest jewelry trade show in North America and at a single time the largest in the planet) has never totally recovered from the 2008-2009 international recession. SIHH, recognized for its exclusivity, has opened its doors to a lot more watch exhibitors and buyers.
Marai says driving this move is a alter in the way that buyers relate to brands. This has prompted his push to locate new techniques for his organization to get closer to its buyers by means of its advertising and marketing practices and sales. The search for these new practices is further complex by the a variety of financial and geopolitical troubles all through the globe that are affecting distribution and sales. This ranges from the steep decline in sales from the after booming China and Hong Kong marketplace, to the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East, the Western financial sanctions imposed on Russia and the surprise victory of Donald Trump as U.S. president.
He says the brands he manages via the Timex luxury division are performing better than most since they are a smaller sized and newer to the industry. The Versace and Versus element of the business was founded in 2004 and the Ferragamo and Nautica company 3 years later. Even so, he says it’s required to be proactive.
In difficult moments you have to be more active. The market place is suffering, the economy is not best everywhere. We are nonetheless quite satisfied with what’s happening this year but I have to admit the industry is not undertaking well,” he said. We’re still displaying development since we are reasonably modest. We can still develop but in common the industry is not performing nicely.”
Portion of getting active is embracing what Marai calls the new digital revolution” with a shop now, purchase now” mentality.
Every little thing is going digital at this moment and we’ve been struggling the previous two years attempting to embrace it. Due to the fact we operate below license so we have some constraints. The brands cannot go in that direction just for watches. But more and far more all luxury brands need to comprehend this digital revolution and need to have to handle it.”
This calls for a far more direct connection by brands with shoppers by means of social media and via the availability of their items. This strategy, in and of itself, is not new to those in the luxury market. Nonetheless, attaining this partnership has been difficult for established luxury and fashion brands.
Those who have the cash in the subsequent ten years require to be reached in a entirely various way,” he said. Conventional communication is more than. These with the capacity to comprehend and to translate this into the market will be a lot more efficient.”
Marai is interested in making use of the Internet as a tool to communicate straight with consumers and present their merchandise and brand. As an eCommerce tool, he nevertheless says standard retail will nonetheless be primary source of sales, noting the data indicates that that eCommerce will account for 20 percent of total luxury sales in 2025.
There is a extended way to go still. I’m fairly sure traditional distribution is frightened by the Web and they need to not be simply because it is employed a lot more as an information tool rather than just a acquiring tool. (Even so) it is the very best way to present your goods. You can have your best show, your greatest shop where you can present all of your items exactly as you want them to be presented.”
Marai also is conscious that on the internet buying is a quickly and hassle-free way for shoppers to buy goods.
By way of digital you can provide your buyer with whatever he wants so when he comes to us for a various dial or distinct strap it is extremely basic (to fulfill that order). We have to try to produce a bridge in between the traditional distribution and the new tools that are presented by means of eCommerce in order to be much more effective with the finish customer.”
Usually overlooked Marai says is that a lot more than 50 % of watches are purchased as a gift. This signifies the presentation wants to be a lot more luxurious, more than the solution itself often.”
In addition, he says watches from style brands are regarded as an accessory and a automobile of self expression and must be additional addressed by luxury watch brands.
Brands such as ours, fashion brands, the style is far more relevant than the movement inside. We have a excellent chance at the moment. Who cares today what is inside? The new generation they do not consider watches high-finish technology.”
1 piece of technology that muddled the watch market place was the wise watch, Marai says, which right after their initial success have failed preserve the interest of buyers. Even so, it did trigger damage by making confusion with consumers and within the industry. He said the rush by traditional watch makers to produce their personal digital watches was a error.
Apple was a huge achievement in the initial phase but individuals that purchased it do not use it,” he stated. It has produced confusion for the end customer and the distribution channels. Everybody wanted to be the first to create the product and I think it was a mistake. It was a little bit too early.”
Marai says the luxury watch sector is nevertheless a relatively rich industry,” meaning that compared to other industries the margins are higher. But he hinted that this could change down the road as brands continue to market place and sell straight to customers.
The distributor buys the item from the industry and then sells it to the retailer. (This) is not one thing that will final forever. The market has to come closer to the distribution and turn out to be a lot more direct and far more effective, lowering a lot of the expenses in distribution and (therefore) producing a far more powerful proposition to the end customer.”
He added, Some activities would have to possibly disappear.”
These are just some of the causes Marai and other people are reconsidering their commitment Baselworld.

How To Study Jewelry Marks

The number markings on valuable gold jewelry are a bit of confusion to lots of folks. We are usually employed to seeing a karat or silver mark like this: 10K, 14K, 18K, Sterling, etc. The numbers mean the identical thing.
For 14k the quantity is technically 583 but most companies adopted the European way and make 14k gold a tiny bit more than 14k, so the mark is 585 in most 14k jewelry. 18K is marked 750. If the mark is valid and there is a makers mark also in the jewelry, the quantity means these products are 18k gold.
Right here is where the numbers come from. Pure gold is referred to as 24 karat. For 18k gold, there are 18 parts of pure gold mixed with other metals to make the metal suitable for use in jewelry. 24k is too soft alone to stand up or to hold stones properly. 18 components pure gold divided by 24, or 18/24 equals 750. That is exactly where the quantity comes from. The jewelry is 75% pure gold, 750 components gold with 250 parts other metals out of “1000” components. It is less difficult to think of it as a percent which is pure gold in the recipe.
Sterling silver is marked 925. Sterling is 92.5% pure silver and the rest is other metal, typically copper.
What does it imply if the ring marked 14K PR? The 14K basically indicates it is 14K (Karat) gold and due to the fact of the K signifies it would have been produced in either South East Asia or The United States. The PR marks are just the Maker or Shop ID or even a design mark, and have no relevance to the Worth.
The standard decimal formula to perform out the high quality of gold content material is really simple, as they are all measured in ‘Parts per Thousand.’ This indicates that 9ct gold is calculated like this: 9 (for 9ct) is divided by pure gold (24) and then multiplied by 1000 (for pure gold as a decimal). ie: 9/241000=375 That 375 is the decimal quality for 9ct gold and is sometimes shown with a decimal point in front -375
The old Victorian normal of 15ct gold is calculated the very same way – 15/241000 = 625 (Not fairly the numbers you have on your jewelry. Dental gold is 16ct or 666 recurring. But you can also reverse this formula by beginning with the decimal and operating back. ie: 375/100024 = 9
In your case we can use 698/100024 = virtually 17ct
I have a platinum engagement ring and discovered a wedding ring that I actually like but the band is created of palladium. Is it safe to wear these two metals together without having a single damaging the other?
It will wear the softer metal Over TIME but that could take several years. My Grandmothers wedding ring sooner or later wore away the band of her engagement ring but it took more than 20 years to do.

Methods Of Jewelry Cleaning (1)

By Mirjan Stojanovic
All females like jewelry. And they even want to don it as soon as a chance is there. Jewelry is a matter of love for women since historic period. It adds to the gorgeousness of ladies and imparts an air of affluence and prosperity Not only ladies, but gents also love to don jewelry, because the key intention of jewelry is to intensify the attractiveness of whoever wears it. But if the jewelry gets grimy, it may impart bad influence on other persons. With time, due to oils, air pollutants, sweat, grease and many other factors in the environment, jewelry becomes dirty and seems matte. It doesn’t glitter like it does when it is new. Hence, in the preservance of jewelry, cleaning is a needed practice.
Jewelry is made from a lot of substances, like silver, stainless steel, gold, tungsten, and various sorts of gems. Based on the material, cleaning technique varies. Thus there are many varied techniques and substances to clean varied sorts of jewelry.
Diamond is is the most chosen gem of ladies as well as men. As ladies don diamonds in form of earrings, bracelets, brooches, necklaces and rings, men too take an opportunity to use it in form of rings, tiepins, cufflinks and other items. Although diamond is the stiffest gem, it also becomes dirty very easily. This is due to the fact that the point in which it has been fitted, prohibits its perfect cleaning. Oils, grease and other sorts of dirt collect in the setting and also on the body of the diamond. A lathery ammonia cleaning stuff is offered by some particular jewelers at the time of purchasing diamond jewelry. Other manner is to use steam cleaners. Ultrasonic cleaners can also be made use of. As a home remedy, we can utilize liquids containing ethyl alcohol base or ammonia base, or even a liquid of soap and tempeate water.
Silver Jewelry
Normally, silver jewelry is washed with baking soda, hot water and aluminum foil. But this process is not recommended by most of the jewelers. One more procedure is to scrub the silver jewelry with a powder brought into use for cleaning utensils and afterwards clean it with a soft cloth. This discards the black rusting from the silver ornaments.
Copper Jewelry
There is an excellent method to cleanse copper pieces of jewelry and it is to make use of a solution of juice of lemon and a pinch of salt. It revives the shine of the metal without much efforts. When you finish cleaning, rinse it thoroughly in order to get rid of all the lemon juice and salt and dry completely prior to placing in a box or wearing. To prevent oxidation, keep copper trinkets in a sealed container or plastic bag.
Damage Caused by Cleaning Techniques
Certain cleaning manners are not suited for cleaning particular sorts of jewelry. For example a dark layer can be built up on the jewelry which decreases its brightness. Ultrasonic cleaning is not advisable for precious and semiprecious stones like amber, opals, pearls and topaz, because it discards the film on the gemstones which is intended to create desired color rays. Any gemstone which is porous must not be cleaned making use of ultrasonic cleaner. Plus, gemstones stuck with glue should not be kept immersed in ultrasonic cleaning agents. This can undo their setting and they can be lost. It is a neat habit to check the jewelry items for released stones and settings, before cleaning them with steam technique or ultrasonic procedure.
