Q1: 妳是如何開始對手錶產生興趣的?

How did you get interested in watches?

 

我向來都對錶有興趣。有張照片是三歲時候的我,手上就戴著錶。我向父母親詢問那張照片的故事,他們說,直到買那只錶給我之前,我就是拒絕離開那家錶店。不過我可能是受到母親的影響;她總是佩戴腕錶來加添她的風采。幾年前,她交給我這只歐米茄碟飛。我有一張照片,是她戴著這只錶,抱著當時還是嬰兒的我。

 

I‘ve always been interested in watches! There’s a photo of me at 3 years old and I’m wearing a watch. When I questioned my parents on this, they told me I had had seen it at watch shop and refused to leave the place until they bought it for me! But I probably am influenced by my mom who used to wear watches as a way of adding to her daily style. She passed me this yellow gold Omega DeVille a few years ago and I also have a picture of her wearing this while carrying me as a baby.

Q2. 哪一則IG貼文最能表達妳的風格?

Which of your IG post best represents your style?

 

雖然我現在的穿著比較休閒一點,但我認為,這張照片中,我戴著梵克雅寶的珍珠母貝耳環,搭配百達翡麗的玫瑰金Calatrava 7200,最能代表我「女性的低調優雅」風格。

 

Although I’ve started to dress more casually these days, I think my style is mostly described as feminine understated elegance. Thus, this post with me in a dress, mother-of-pearl Van Cleef Arpels earrings and the Patek calatrava best represents me.

經典的PP Calatrava 7200R,超薄的設計上手十分舒適。

Q3: 妳覺得女性和男性愛錶人有何不同之處嗎?

Have you found any differences between female and male watch lovers?

 

我認為女性在建立自己的腕錶收藏時比較感性。至少以我而言,如果一只錶的某個方面吸引我(通常是外觀),我就會把它加入收藏(當然是在經濟能力許可的範圍內)。當我和男性收藏家聊錶時,我發現他們在做決定之前,通常會考慮較多的面向,例如機芯、面盤細節、限量版、以及未來轉手的難易度。當然,我也會考慮那些面向,但我不會被它們過度地影響。

 

I think female watch lovers are a bit more emotional when we build our collection. At least for me, if some aspect about the watch appeals to me (mostly it’s look), I’ll add the watch (within financial means of course!). When I have conversations with guy collectors, I find they usually consider more aspects like movement, dial details, limited editions and how easy it is to trade in the future, before they pull the trigger. I may think about those aspects, but will not be unduly influenced by them.

Q4. 妳最喜愛的錶是哪一只?為什麼?

Which is your favorite watch? Why?

 

要我選一只最愛的錶,就跟要父母親選最喜愛的孩子一樣困難!我有很多最愛,其中之一,是我唯一的複雜功能腕錶 — 朗格 Saxonia 年曆。朗格的腕錶真正地體現了包浩斯風格之美;這只年曆不但清晰易讀,而且漂亮!

 

Asking me to pick my favorite watch is as bad as asking any parent to pick a favorite child!! So hard.... I have many favorites but this is one of them. It is also my only complication - A Lange & Sohne Saxonia Annual Calendar. Lange watches truly embodies Bauhaus beauty and the legibility of this watch is phenomenal and beautiful too!

Q5: 身為一位女性愛錶人,妳對鐘錶品牌和鐘錶業界,有什麼話想說呢?

As a female watch lover, do you want to say something to the brands and the watch industry? 

 

許多品牌以為,縮小男錶尺寸並加上鑽石,就算是顧及女性收藏家的需求;我對此感到失望。我欣賞F.P. Journe在Elegante系列上為女性付出的心思。記得看過一篇文章提到,Elegante系列的誕生,來自於一位顧客的妻子的希望,她想要有一只女錶,而不是較小尺寸的男錶。通常我不喜歡帶鑽的錶,但在這只Elegante上,我覺得有鑽比無鑽的好看!

 

I’m frustrated that many watchmakers/brands tend to reduce men’s size watches, slap on diamonds and think they’ve serviced female collectors’ desires. I love what FP Journe has done with the elegante line for ladies. I remember reading an article and it mentioned that this line was born from requests from client’s wife who wanted a ladies watch and not a smaller men’s watch. I normally dislike diamonds on watches but here I think they look nicer with the diamonds than without!
