Q1.你什麼時候註冊IG帳戶的?為什麼?

When did you create your IG account? and why?

 

我是在2015年或2016年左右註冊了IG帳戶,最初其實是為了記錄回憶(旅行、食物、生活方式),但後來我的IG開始出現和手錶相關的內容,因為我對手錶越來越感興趣,而且希望可以更專注於內容面。(第一篇貼文是在2016年1月1日)

 

I created the account around 2015 or 2016. At first it was primarily just to capture memories (travel, food, lifestyle) but it started to evolve into a watch account as I got more into the hobby and the desire to have more focused content. (First post, 2016.01.01)

Q2.透過你的貼文,你希望傳遞出什麼訊息?

What message would you want to convey through your post?

 

對手錶的熱愛手錶是不分價位或是等級的,即使到最後它成為過程中的一種激情,生活中留下的也不僅只有手錶而已。

 

All kinds of watches can be enjoyed at any level and ultimately even though it is a passion, there is more to life than just watches.

Q4.手錶對你的工作和生活來說代表什麼?

What do watches mean to your work or life?

 

其實我的同事裡沒有完全愛錶成癡的族群,但是每每分享我的知識、或是給他們購買建議,這過程始終都是有趣的。對於工作場合來說,我喜歡配戴經典而且低調的作品。

 

None of my colleagues are really watch nerds but it is always interesting to share my knowledge on the topic and give some advice on what to buy. I prefer classic yet understated pieces for work.

手錶對我來說是一種熱情,這種愛好也將我和很多志同道合的人連結在一起,我很感恩這個族群有許多人現在都變成好朋友的這件事,社群的親密程度真的很令人驚嘆。

Watches are a passion for me and this hobby has also connected me with many like-minded individuals whom I am thankful to say are good friends now. The closeness of the community is amazing.

我還共同創辦了Mandarin Watch&Friends這個社團,讓鐘錶同好們可以有一個分享的園地,談論手錶和生活。 我們舉辦了一些和手錶以及生活風格品牌相關的活動,讓會員們可以互動並且獲得新知。

 

I also co founded Mandarin Watch & Friends which brings together like minded watch enthusiasts to talk about watches and life. We also organize some great events with watch and lifestyle brands to educate and interact with our members.

Q5.你收集手錶的標準是什麼?

What are your criterias in collecting watch?

 

無論手錶多麼具有收藏價值,都必須以喜歡它做為首要標準。 然而這些日子以來,我發現自己開始傾向想要購買能夠保值的作品,因為我經歷過必須賣掉某些收藏錶款,再去購買某些想要的手錶的掙扎。因此,如果可能的話,我會試著對我的購買更加理性!

 

The number one criteria is I have to like it, no matter how collectible the watch is. These days however, I find myself veering towards pieces that are generally able to hold their value because I have been through the pain of trying to rejig my collection which sometimes involves letting go of certain pieces to fund others. Therefore I have tried to be a lot more rational with my purchases, if that is even possible!

Q6.你最喜歡哪個牌子?

Which watch brand is your favourite?

 

主流品牌的話是百達翡麗、勞力士、朗格、愛彼,獨立製錶品牌則是F.P.、JOURNE、VOUTILAINEN還有RICHARD MILLE。

 

From the mainstream brands: PATEK PHILIPPE, ROLEX, A. LANGE & SÖHNE, AP. From the independents: F.P. JOURNE, VOUTILAINEN, RICHARD MILLE.

Q7.你最喜歡的手錶是哪只?為什麼?

Which is your favourite watch? Why?

 

目前來說是F.P. Journe的Octa Calendrier,它是很棒的手錶,具備非常實用的五日鍊年曆功能、錶徑38mm,尺寸和比例都十分得宜,是現今大多數產品所缺乏的。

 

From my current collection it would be my FPJ Octa Calendrier. It is a great conversation piece, very practical since it has the annual calendar complication with five days power reserve. At 38mm, the size and proportions are superb, something which is lacking in most of the modern offerings today.

Q8.對你來說,一只好的手錶必須具備什麼條件?

In your opinion, what makes “a nice watch”?

 

首先一只好的手錶必須喚起你的情感和熱情,定義會因個人而異,如果你對它沒什麼感覺,那麼即使是最貴或最好的手錶,你也不會覺得它好。因此我覺得一只好的手錶應該具備吸引人的面盤、機芯和錶殼都有優良的作工,以及良好的比例(這點經常被忽略)。

 

A nice watch should first and foremost evoke your emotions and passion. It will differ by individual but the most expensive or best finished watch is not ‘nice’ if you feel nothing for it. That said, I think a nice watch generally should have an attractive dial, great finishing of the movement and case, and good proportions (this is often overlooked).

Q9.你可以分享一下你的第一只手錶嗎?你現在依然擁有它嗎?

Would you please share your first watch? Do you still have it?

 

我最早的一只手錶是我母親買給我的卡西歐,現在已經不在了。如果要以正式的手錶來說,我的第一只手錶其實是帝舵,但它有一些精準度的問題,我把它送回授權廠商那了,後來以百年靈的Colt代替。Colt是一只很棒的手錶,我後來把它送給了我的父親。

 

My very first watch was a Casio that my mum bought for me, I don’t think I have it anymore. For my first serious watch, it was a Tudor but at that time it had some accuracy issues and we sent it back to the AD and replaced it with a Brietling Colt instead. It’s a great watch and I’ve since passed it to my dad who appreciates it more.

Q10.能否分享一下你購買過最瘋狂的手錶?你下一只想入手的手錶是什麼?為什麼?

Please share the craziest watch that you have. Which watch would you want to purchase next? Why?

 

我其實沒有購買過什麼特別瘋狂的手錶,但我擁有最有趣的手錶應該要算是我前面提過的F.P. JOURNE Octa calendrier年曆錶。它的面盤設計不對稱,但整體來說風格非常連貫,Journe本人獨到的設計語彙展露無遺。 至於我下一只想購買的手錶其實有很多,如果能力允許的話,勞力士或百達翡麗的熱門型號,或是一個不錯的獨立品牌都很棒。

I don’t think any of my watches areparticularly crazy but the most interesting piece should be my Octa calendrier. The dial is asymmetrical yet very coherent and Journe’s design language really shines through. There are so many pieces I would love to purchase but resources are scarce. That said, a hot model from Rolex or Patek, else a nice indie brand would be wonderful.

編按:相當欣賞Kari Voutilainen的simple-man15,在IG上也曾貼出這位製錶大師的作品,展現對這位天才製錶師的喜愛。根據貼文的留言內容,他比較偏愛左邊那只,乍看下有點像女錶,也凸顯出simple-man15在選擇手錶時,忠於自我、不隨波逐流的挑選原則,或許這也算是一種愛錶成癡的瘋狂吧!
 

Q11.如果你只能保有一只你收藏中的錶款,會是哪一只?為什麼?

If you only get to keep ONE watch in your collection, which one would you keep? Why?

 

我會保留陶瓷的Daytona,因為它很好搭,無論工作或休閒都可以配戴。陶瓷錶很適合戴去旅行,即使在使用很多年過後,手錶的狀態也能看起來像新的一樣,因為它不容易刮傷。Daytona的設計非常經典,錶徑不會太大,它的百搭性是勞力士所有型號中最棒的。勞力士的自製機芯就像坦克一樣耐用,具備高精準度以及長動能。而且,勞力士的錶在任何市場都有極佳的流通性。

 

I would keep the ceramic Daytona because it can literally be worn for any occasion (work or casual). The ceramic is great for traveling and helps keep the watch looking like new even after many years because it doesn’t scratch easily. The design of the watch is classic and the fit is the best among all modern rolexes (not too big). The Rolex in-house movement is built like a tank with great accuracy and a long power reserve. Moreover the watch is extremely liquid in any market.
