Mr. Chaplin, What Time Is It?

The inheritance of the table is no longer a material retention, but a belief and a spirit.
——Mr. Ye

& gt; & gt; & gt; Chaplin ‘Time is my only enemy & lt; & lt; & lt;
As I began to love myself
I quit steeling my own time,
and I stopped designing huge projects for the future.
Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness,
things I love to do and that make my heart cheer,
and I do them in my own way
and in my own rhythm.
Today I call it
When I start to truly love myself
I no longer sacrifice my free time
No longer draw a grand tomorrow
Today I only do fun and happy things
Do what you love and make people happy
In my way to my rhythm
Today I understand, this is called

Fat pants, top hat, moustache, toe shoes
A crutch that never leaves

Chaplin conquered the world with his unique expressions and actions
   When Chaplin and his family settled in Switzerland, the government wanted to offer a welcome gift to this talented and great man. So Jaeger-LeCoultre accepted this great and glorious task, sending Chaplin a specially customized ‘Memovox’ with the inscription ‘Hommage du gouvernement vaudois à Charlie Chaplin – 6 octobre 1953’ on the bottom of the case. Translation: A watch specially tailored by the government for Mr. Chaplin.

   This watch has been ticking like this since then, turning away time, and turning to love, affection and countless stories.

   Just ticking like this, this watch has gone through a whole century. Chaplin gave his watch to his eldest son, Michael Chaplin, at the age of 14. Later, Michael Chaplin presented the watch as a love token to his wife on the wedding day. This watch, which bears history, accompany them through a 45-year happy marriage, and then this watch was presented to Carmen Chaplin, the granddaughter of Chaplin.

Chaplin’s granddaughter is so beautiful, I almost fell in love.
& gt; & gt; & gt; My fate with Jaeger-LeCoultre & lt; & lt; & lt;
   I have an inexplicable love for antique watches, but also travel through time and space. Each watch has a unique story. Collecting watches is not only a hobby for me, but also a kind of love for the past, for time, for Torture of life.
   I have several Jaeger-LeCoultre watches, one of which is an alarm clock older than Chaplin.

Table Pink 1 Q: Why is the brand of this watch Le Coutre? Not Jaeger-LeCoultre?

   Jaeger-LeCoultre was founded in 1833 and was founded by Mr. Antoine LeCoultre. The picture above is his grandson Jacques-David LeCoultre. Make my watch.

LeCoultre 邂逅 Jaeger

Edmond Jaeger, French watchmaker
   Jaeger came to Switzerland with an exclusive ultra-thin movement design to find a manufacturer capable of making it. Jacques-David LeCoultre, the grandson of the founder who was responsible for the manufacturing department at LeCoultre & Cie, accepted this challenge.
   The relationship between LeCoultre and Jaeger has gradually developed into a fraternal friendship. The two have worked together to create one of the most exquisite ultra-thin series in the history of watches and clocks. .

   In 1937, the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand was finally merged.

   Look! The logo on the head is exactly the logo of JJF, which is exactly the same. More than 180 years of history!

   Crossing to the present, this is the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory in the Swiss Rura Valley.
Table fan 2Q: When was this watch made?
   I really didn’t know when I was collecting this watch. I just heard the sound of this alarm, and immediately saw the oxidized hands on it and bought it in Paris. However, I am sure that this piece was manufactured before 1937. In 1937 (Jaeger-LeCoultre) was officially merged, and all subsequent watches were used (Jaeger-LeCoultre).
   The technique of repairing the watch that I learned finally came in handy, I opened it and looked.

   wow, beautiful movement. That was not the case for artisans at that time.

   Coupled with my data review, the real shock absorbers were only available in the 1940s, and my shock absorbers were not available (explained in later articles). So it must be before 1940.

   Take a closer look, I made this piece for the US market. U.S.A. Do you see it? That was supposed to be in 1920-1930. So this watch should be born between 1920-1930.

Full analysis of the working principle of antique alarm clock
   I purposely recorded this video in order to clearly play back the beautiful ringtones of the midsummer season of that era. Questions about antique watches, please ask your table friends actively, I will leave a message one by one to answer.
   Of course, you can go to the Sino-French Jaeger-LeCoultre store to be more productive.

Mr. Ye accompany reminder
The watch is a token that can be passed on.
   The past must not be stingy, the followers can follow, and we can never keep time. But a watch that has gone through time and weather can inherit the story of a family, like Memovox in 1953. From Chaplin to his son, to his son’s happy marriage, to his granddaughter, this inheritance is no longer Material retention is a belief, a spirit.
Finally, I pay my respects to this world-class comedian!

   You laughed, this is worth it.

This is another time for the Panerai brand. Innovation brings us an extraordinary experience. Despite using advanced material technology, every detail of the watch is faithfully taken from the brand’s history.

Watch made of innovative carbotech material

   The watch case has a diameter of 47 mm and was developed by Panerai in the late 1940s. It was worn by Italian naval commandos.
