More Chinese Style Works Show —- Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair Interview With Earl Enamel Master Anita

At the Hong Kong Watch Fair, Watch House and a number of media had the opportunity to interview Anita, the top enamel craftsman who has collaborated with Piaget many times.
   Anita’s full name is Anita Porchet, and her signature on the painting is ‘A. Porchet’. Many of the top enamel watches from Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Cartier (Weibo), Piaget and Hermès are all made by her. Her master is the famous Suzanne Rohr and her master is Carlo Poluzzi, both of whom are top figures in the Geneva enamel painting world. At the same time, Suzanne passed to her the century-old enamel glaze and painting tools she had, so her enamel paintings would have a different jewellery glory even if the type of reel.

   Anita is a leader in enamel painting. Piaget and Anita have had many successful cooperations. The following is the free exchange between Anita and the media.

Q: Anita has produced many works with Chinese elements. Which one of these Chinese elements has you been most impressed with?
Anita: Actually, there aren’t many. There are three times, one is making dragon and phoenix, the other is making snake last year, and this is the cooperation. My favorite is the snake from last year. I really like the ‘8’ shape. There is also ‘8’ for the moral meaning of China, I feel very good and very moved. For each year of the zodiac in the coming years, planning is also underway, and there will be better works to present to everyone.
Home of Watches: I have been working in the Swiss watchmaking industry for so many years. What do you think is the most important idea that Piaget wants to convey to women around the world in many watchmaking processes?
Anita: In the world of watches, they are also very men, and the creations are not entirely for women. Both men and women are necessary. Everyone is complementary. Everyone should be a cooperative relationship. All creative ideas today are not exclusively for men or women. Both are equally important. I will tell my daughter that although women are very important in all aspects of the workplace, women still have to be feminine and retain their characteristics, which is also very important for human beings.

Question: Ms. Anita has been in this job for 30 years. I want to know why I learned this craft and why I can persist? Thirty years ago, young people in Europe may not be very interested in this technique. Are there any faults? And for the inheritance of this skill, does Ms. Anita accept her own students?
Anita: In fact, the talent fault has passed. Young people were more reluctant to do such craftsmanship for a long time. Later, the trend turned back, so more and more young people want to engage in this area recently. . For me to inherit this thing, it is my responsibility. I must do something and have tried different ways. I used to teach a large class system, but now I prefer to use the apprenticeship system. At present, there are students in the studio. I will take students to visit exhibitions or work together to complete this ancient project. Techniques penetrate into the next generation.

Q: How did you combine embroidery and enamel painting to get creative inspiration? Will the silk products be affected by the environment such as temperature during use?
Anita: Whether it is craftsmanship or creation, we need to constantly try and find ways to innovate. The creation of gold thread on silk did not involve enamel painting, and it was not performed by me, so it was the responsibility of the count to last. The reason why I like enamel painting is precisely because of its durability, it can be kept forever, which is my biggest attraction. Today, whether it is enamel painting or other crafts, they are seeking breakthroughs. Of course, some crafts have not tried successfully, but after a few years, they may not be able to continue. But this time the mini-mosaic part, I think it will be very durable, mainly made of glass material stitching.

Question: In terms of innovation, how is the composition of the picture and how is the composition of the screen produced?
Anita: In fact, Earl and I have a cooperative relationship. After Earl Titus gave me a picture, I will make some ideas. If it is not feasible in some places, I will explain it with the brand and make corresponding modifications. I will also come up with some ideas to modify the design to make it better. So the entire work is jointly completed by both parties.
Q: Is the current job done by one person or does it have its own team? If she encounters a duplicate topic, will it be produced by her students? If it involves the cooperation of enamel with other processes, do you also master other processes?
Anita: There are currently two apprentices in my studio working with me. If I encounter duplicate work, I will do the first one and let my apprentices follow along, so there are some works, if it is marked with ‘AP’ on it, it means that this is not done by me, but by I completed it in my studio, but this work must have started with me. For example, three of the eight watches were made by me, or the first three processes were completed by me. If this work is marked ‘A. Porchet’, it means that the work was done by myself. In fact, the signature is very small. If you do n’t take a magnifying glass, you can’t find it. I only do enamel painting, and other parts are done by other technicians. I really admire the fine sculptor who worked with me. Some of the enamel paintings I painted are very small, but the fine sculptor has never encountered it, so I admire his skills. If one day I received a call from the carver saying that I encountered my painting, I would say that it doesn’t matter.
   In a short period of time, the media reporters present ended the interview with Ms. Anita. The talkative Ms. Anita infected every person present with her enthusiasm and sincerity, and her enthusiasm for the art of enamel, so that everyone knew the lady with a sense of integrity, and also got a better understanding of the ancient enamel craftsmanship. And I also look forward to the next beautiful work of Master Anita.

 Wrapped in a stainless steel case with a diameter of 43 mm, the Bento Series S dive watch expresses time in a classic way. As a professional diving watch, it also has an automatic helium exhaust valve at 9 o’clock, which is indispensable for diving. Before returning to the surface, professional divers usually go through the decompression chamber to decompress.

The helium exhaust valve device of the Bentao Series S diving watch excludes helium and prevents any irreparable damage to the watch.

 Black or milky opal dials, with superluminova-coated indexes and hands, allow divers to read time clearly even in the deep sea. The hands are not only covered with a fluorescent coating, but the colors are very bright. The hour and minute hands are bordered by a jumping red, and the dial displays a calendar display at 6 o’clock.

The 2015 Watchmaking Class Of Hublot Watches “The Sound From The Cathedral” Was Held At The China Oil Painting Institute

On April 22, 2015, Mr. Mathias Buttet, the director of the research and development department of the legendary scientific wizard Hublot, continued to work in the third phase of the China World Trade Center, the National Museum, and Tsinghua University. The University and the National Library of China Ancient Library gave four watchmaking classes and came to Beijing again. At the China Oil Painting Institute, a fifth watchmaking class called Hublot “The Cathedral’s Sound” was held together with the Chinese media. Share the highly sophisticated watchmaking craftsmanship and the unique musical world of Hublot.

   Since today’s theme is ‘Changing from the Cathedral’, Hublot specially chose the church-shaped building of the China Oil Painting Institute as the venue for today’s class.
   Hublot has never stopped surpassing itself! Since its founding in Nyon, Switzerland in 1980, Hublot has featured a natural rubber strap with precious metal materials, setting a precedent for material fusion in the history of watchmaking at the time. Since then, the ‘integrated art’ representing its own rebirth, creation and revival has become Hublot’s unremitting pursuit. When the extraordinary imagination met the exquisite craftsmanship, Hublot once again demonstrated the constant search for ‘integrated art’, creating an extraordinary feast of hearing-‘the sound of the cathedral’ Let the sound of time flow so pleasant!
‘More watchmaking traditions, more advanced craftsmanship, more pioneering innovations, more bold attempts, more integrations!’ This is the current CEO of Hublot Jean-Claude Beaver Mr. In 2010 gave encouragement to the newly established complex watch department.
   Since then, Hublot has challenged the complication of minute repeaters, one of the finest in fine watchmaking. This feature is known for its numerous parts and complex operation, which test the craftsmanship of manual watchmaking, and the sound of the timepiece has become the ultimate embodiment of the brand watchmaking process. Hublot takes the beautiful sound as its pursuit, and strives to create a breathtaking sound of nature, to achieve a unique world of Hublot music.
    Just a year later, Hublot brought a new breakthrough in the field of highly complex watches-the King’s Supreme Cathedral Minute Repeater Tourbillon and Column Chronograph. This watch combines two highly complex functions in One body, and the groundbreaking use of the brand’s original carbon fiber machine board, has become a model of the fusion of traditional watchmaking and future technology. The sound of their singing is extremely beautiful and touching. Three years later, the classic Fusion Cathedral Minute Repeater Tourbillon watch was born, and its extraordinary sound has won praises from many connoisseurs. Behind all this is the unremitting efforts to turn dreams into reality— — The sound of the timepiece reverberation no longer relies on air to propagate, but through the resonance of the case material. This watch has won the ‘Best Timekeeping Award’ of the 14th Geneva Haute Horlogerie with an overwhelming advantage, and has witnessed Hublot’s remarkable achievements in independent research and development and highly complex watchmaking.
 The windows of the ‘church’ became distinctive after being attached to Hublot’s logo.
   In 2015, at the time of the tenth anniversary of the Hublot Big Bang series, the brand once again challenged the highly complex watchmaking field with the Big Bang timepiece. This watch combines two complex functions-mechanical alarm clock and second time zone display. Show the extraordinary skills at the same time, add a heavy stroke to the history of Hublot’s highly complex watch manufacturing.

 In order to better integrate with today’s environment, Hublot specially prepared a goose feather pen for everyone to take notes.
   Matthias Bout, the director of the research and development department of Hublot, who is more likely to be called a scientist rather than a watchmaking expert, has been leading the research and development of Hublot. Rapid advances have been made in the field of complex watchmaking, and countless praises have been received. Today Mr. Butt mainly explained some stories behind Hublot Minute Repeater for us.

   Mr. Butt believes that the decisive factor of the sound of the minute repeater watch depends on the interior of the case, the volume of air in the case, and the larger the volume, the louder the sound. A professional watch and clock magazine in France evaluated Hublot’s Minute Repeater and other minute repeaters. Hublot’s repeater has maintained a leading position in volume, sound and frequency.
   According to Hublot research, when the vibration frequency of the minute repeater is controlled between 2000-17000 Hz and the volume is between 60-90 decibels, the sound of the watch sounds the most harmonious.
   After testing, when the minute repeater watch is engraved, the sound interval is 0.8 seconds.
   Mr. Bout believes that the size of the minute repeater has a direct relationship with the environment. He personally put the minute repeater behind the piano for demonstration. Indeed, the minute repeater becomes very loud.
   After the course, everyone played Hublot’s minute repeater, this minute repeater with two ‘cathedral’ type gongs. This is a highly complex watch that integrates the tourbillon and column wheel chronograph functions. The case and the movement plate are completely made of carbon fiber. This watch perfectly interprets the ‘fusion’ of traditional watchmaking and future technology.
 The metal part on the side of the case is the switch that turns on the minute repeater.
 Hublot is indeed the pioneer in using the latest materials, and the plywood of the minute repeater can even be made of carbon fiber.
   In 2014, Hublot officially launched the second Cathedral Minute Repeater Tourbillon watch, perfectly displaying the wonderful balance between watchmaking art and contemporary dynamic design. The 45mm diameter classic fusion case is equipped with a dual high-complexity movement, deepening Hublot’s understanding of the fusion of tradition and modernity.
 The dial of the Hublot minute repeater has always been so low-key.
  The tourbillon escapement and minute repeater of the HUB8001 manual winding mechanical movement equipped on this watch are clearly visible. Most noteworthy are the newly designed time setting function and the classic tourbillon device (with a 13.6-mm diameter frame and one revolution per minute). In addition, the design of the bridge on the side of the movement dial ensures the stable structure of the tourbillon. Splints, ratchet cams and springs, racks and hammers, gongs and snail wheels, frames, gears, jewel bearings, screws-precision assembly of up to 319 parts of the watch is a decorative element, forming a unique aesthetic, complemented With rose gold or rhodium-plated hands and different case materials, it is even more exquisite. According to Mr. Butt, Hublot will release a shocking questionnaire two years later, let us wait and see! (Text / picture watch house Mao Zhuang)
