Watches Of Switzerland Providing Best Of Two Worlds Under One Roof 瑞士表同一屋檐下的精粹复古和现代

Rolex Daytona ‘Zenith’

The modern and vintage watch collectors previously seldom cross paths simply because both have very different obsessions. One prefers to own pieces of historical importance whereas the other tend to go after contemporary engineering and amazing finishing. Furthermore the boutiques selling these modern and vintage timepieces are very different but now this perception is definitely changing.

Luxury watch retail giant Watches of Switzerland acquired Analog Shift Watches. This new partnership will see an unprecedented offering of both vintage and modern watches under the same roof. It is definitely a strategic move for Watches of Switzerland as moving forward they will be penetrating the vintage watch market while maintaining its strong existence in the new branded watch industry. Analog Shift Watches have the expertise in authenticating and servicing vintage watches whilst providing guarantees for buyers.

在过去,现代和古董手表收藏家很少会有交集,只因为他们迥异的热爱品味。一边喜欢感受历史意义的作品,而另一边倾向于追求当代工艺和精美加工。因此,销售现代和复古时计手表的精品店也大相径庭,但目前这种观念已出现转变。

瑞士奢华手表的零售巨头-瑞士钟表集团(Watches of Switzerland)收购了Analog Shift Watches。双方全新合作伙伴关系将在同一个屋檐下且史无前例的聚集复古和现代手表产品。 对于瑞士钟表而言,这绝对是一项大胆战略举措,他们将进一步渗透复古钟表市场,并依旧在现代品牌钟表行业中保持强大的市场地位。 Analog Shift具有鉴定和维修复古老式手表的专业知识,同时为买家提供保证。
