IG影響力人物:Pat Chu的收藏風格

HOROGUIDES26 NOV. 2022

將腕錶戴上手,展示的不只是一枚配件,同時也展露了一部份的自我,包含個性、品味,以及你對腕錶收藏的看法見解。特別企劃【TOP INFLUENCERS, what's your collecting style? 】以錶會友,邀請43位鐘錶藏家分享他的收藏風格,以及收藏裡最具代表性的錶款。43位藏家的43種答案,都是收藏歷程的真實體會。

 

Pat Chu

我的朋友都叫我Pat。我以前住的地方離Baselworld僅有15分鐘車程,這或許是我開始閱讀鐘錶雜誌和鐘錶型錄的原因。我對腕錶最美好的記憶來自我的父親,他把腕錶與服裝做出很相襯的搭配。我衷心認為與腕錶藏家們見面的意義不純粹是為了腕錶,而是分享對鐘錶的熱情。

My collecting style can be either seen as rather random or uncommon to other collectors. It ranges from Modern, Vintage, Neo-vintage, Indies and curiosities from the past revolving watchmaking. I think curiosity is the best word to describe my journey. As my watch journey goes on, through meet ups with friends or people I meet physically through GTGs, events and conversations over IG, my interest evolves with every piece of information I absorb. My interest and knowledge for Indies rocketed during the last 3 years through my friends, while I research a lot into Japanese watchmaking history. 

 

和其他藏家相比,我的收藏風格應該是比較隨性或是奇特。包括現代的、古典的、復古的、獨立製錶,只要跟過去製錶相關都會激起我的好奇心,我覺得用「好奇心」形容我的收藏歷程是再恰當不過的字眼。過去三年來,因為朋友的緣故,我對獨立製錶的興趣和知識猛增,同時也開始大量鑽研日本製錶史。

SEIKO Silverwave J12082 不鏽鋼/錶徑37mm

Collecting watches for me satisfies several desires or urges, such as: Discovering a design you like, obtaining something you have been longing and hunting for, collecting a timepiece which marked a milestone in watchmaking history or above of all, making a connection with a fellow watch collector. With this piece I was able to tick off all points. 

 

對我來說,收藏腕錶可以讓我的一部分心願或慾望得到滿足,比方說發現某個喜愛的設計、找到渴望中的錶款、獲得腕錶史上具有代表性的錶款、結識某個志同道合的藏家等等,而這款Seiko剛好滿足前述的所有條件。

 

I remember when I started an IG account and researched more about Japanese watches online (including scans of old catalogues). I remember the feeling when I saw the Seikomatic Silverwave J12082 the first time. Initially one might conclude the dial design as a simple or a clean three hander at 37mm. At a closer look, the dial design to me is elaborated, well thought-out and skilfully balanced and packed with information. 

 

Personally, I am a huge fan of the simple colour combinations from the 60s and typeface which shows how timeless it is. It has an inner rotation bezel contrasting to a silver sunburst dial with applied markers and lume and little logos with its meanings at 12 and 6 o’clock. What else which made this watch so intriguing for me was the fact that the Japanese watch making world was embarking onto the idea of creating wristwatches meant for diving so this can be considered as their prototype before the famous 62MAS.

 

我還記得是在開設IG帳號的時候,我便開始在線上鑽研日本錶(包括掃描舊型錄)。我仍舊記得初次見到Seikomatic Silverwave J12082的感覺,或許有人會將錶盤的設計歸類為37mm的基本錶款或三針錶,但我卻認為錶盤是精心設計,經過深思熟慮,巧妙平衡同時又蘊含著豐富的資訊。

 

我個人對於60年代的簡單色彩組合、雋永經典的字體設計相當著迷。這款錶的深色旋轉內圈,和帶有立體時標、夜光刻度與12點和6點鐘logo的銀色太陽放射紋面盤,形成鮮明的對比。據說當時日本錶廠當時正準備研發專業潛水錶,這款錶也可視為著名的62MAS原型錶的前身,這一點更是令我著迷。
