Director Jia Zhangke Returns From Cannes Kings-hublot’s Successful Personality Choice

On June 5, 2013, at the 66th Cannes International Film Festival in France, the film ‘Destiny of Heaven’, written and directed by Jia Zhangke, won the best screenwriter award. The successful Chinese filmmaker once again rocked the European continent with the voice of China. Advocating individuality and witnessing success, the top Swiss watch brand HUBLOT Hublot watches applauded director Jia Zhangke for another successful career in his film career. Together with director Jia Zhangke, he never ceases to challenge himself, pay tribute to tradition, and create the future.

The personality of successful people-Hublot classic fusion ultra-thin hollow king gold

 As one of the most active Asian directors on the international film scene, Jia Zhangke is not sticking to tradition and clinging to stereotypes, and is good at expressing and interpreting the realism of Chinese cinema to the world through a distinctive and innovative film language. “Advancing in a different way”, HUBLOT shares common values ​​with Director Jia Zhangke, and has become the “most successful model of personality” in the world in their respective fields.

 As early as 2010, Director Jia Zhangke has already connected with Hublot. He has a mastery of fashion and aesthetics. He chose Hublot’s classic fusion rose gold watch and appeared together in the bright sunshine of the Cannes Film Festival. Three years passed and Jia Zhangke’s unique film proposition and personality gained more expectations and respect. The return of the King of Cannes in 2013, Jia Zhangke’s new journey is ready to go. This time, witnessing the success of Director Jia Zhangke’s brilliant success is the “Classic Fusion Series Ultra-thin Hollow King Gold” watch independently developed and manufactured by Hublot.

 It not only perfectly integrates the most discerning elements of Hublot’s dynamic design and modern materials. The design concept of completely hollowed out and unique artistic lines will make the watch’s internal structure-whether it is the adjustment part, balance wheel or escapement wheel, more clearly and intuitively displayed under professional eyes. This is also Hublot’s anti-traditional, first attempt to challenge the ‘thin’ limit: a 45mm diameter dial, equipped with Hublot’s own ultra-thin movement with a thickness of only 2.90 mm. At 7 o’clock on the dial, a small seconds dial is set, and its hands continue the design style of the first-generation Hublot watches as a tribute to the history of Hublot watches. Hublot’s patented technology ‘Wang Jin’ adds 5% platinum to the melted gold, making it appear more rosy in gold. The power reserve of up to 90 hours and the excellent waterproof coefficient of normal operation under 50 meters of water allow the watch to accompany Director Jia Zhangke to calmly cope with various occasions.

 Director Jia Zhangke said: ‘You can observe a phenomenon from different angles, which will bring different perspectives and thinking results. For the passage of time, I prefer to treat it with a vigorous attitude; There are many ways. Taking the watch as the medium is the silent but most personal way. It is not only a tool for recording time, but also a symbol of self-assertion. Hublot is full of enthusiasm and vitality that infect others. It fully reflects contemporary ‘uniqueness’, with personality and vision not found in traditional watches. ‘
 Jia Zhangke’s award-winning work ‘The Destiny’ is expected to land on China’s silver screen in October this year. This alternative realistic film with unique artistry and perspective is about to sweep the film industry with its success and personality. HUBLOT Hublot wished Director Jia Zhangke more brilliant achievements in the journey of artistic exploration!

Lange’s New Grand Lange 1 Double Window And Large Digital Watch

The five-minute digital clock hanging above the stage of the Semper Opera in Dresden represents the pinnacle of the art of Saxony clocks. It was an epoch-making digital display at that time. Since 1841, the accurate time has been displayed in every performance of a musical masterpiece, until the audience in the last row can clearly read it. 150 years later, this clock also inspired Lange to create another world first: LANGE 1, the first mass-produced watch with a large date display. The large Lange date display is also the focus of the new GRAND LANGE 1 coming soon, just revisiting the history of this famous double window clock.
     ‘A clock that is clearly readable from all seats’-this is the order of King Saxony II of Auguste for the timepieces of the new Royal Opera House. 150 years ago, this royal order gave birth to a timepiece that was second to none: the five-minute digital clock of the Semper Opera House. This revolutionary design comes from the handwriting of Johann Christian Friedrich Gutkaes, the genius instructor of Ferdinando Adolf Lange, of Dresden. Together they created one of the earliest digital clocks in the world.
GRAND LANGE 1 and Semper Opera: Both are symbols of Saxony.
     This idea is born in response to demand. The space above the front stage is quite limited, and the round clock dial does not provide proper readability in a dimly lit theater. They decided to use two drums running in opposite directions to create a device never seen before. Hanging high above the stage, the hours and minutes are displayed through ornately decorated double windows, which are displayed at five minute intervals. This clock has made great achievements, and it also made Ferdinando Adolf Lange take the courage to take a bold step to build his own watch factory.
     One and a half centuries later, the double window and the gigantic numbers made their debut again, celebrating its brilliant rebirth. As the first production watch with an oversized date display, it was placed on the upper right of the LANGE 1 off-center display dial. This eye-catching design instantly became the focus of the brand, writing an important chapter in Lange’s history. Today it is considered one of the most classic watches of the 20th century.
     GRAND LANGE 1 is equipped with a redesigned movement for a satisfyingly slim design. The 40.9 mm diameter case (available in rose gold, yellow gold and platinum) is only 8.8 mm thick, bringing a harmonious aspect ratio. The dial of LANGE 1 is precisely and evenly configured. It is transplanted to this enlarged version without any overlap. Lange’s product development staff’s insistence on the preservation ratio can still be found in the smallest details: Lange’s large date display, hands and solid gold decoration are all enlarged in the same proportion as the case. Although the thickness of the movement is only 4.7 mm, the power reserve of GRAND LANGE 1 has reached an amazing 72 hours. To save space, the movement has only one barrel. The hand-made hairspring in the Lange L095.1 caliber, carefully decorated and double-assembled by hand, ensures that the watch is always accurate.
