Athenian’s Past And Present

Spirit and ideal habitat, the beauty of Athens really exists Αθήνα // BUILDINGS When you talk about ‘Athens’, what do you think of first? Is it the beauty of Doric columns and Ioni columns, or is it the beauty of painting and relief? Is it the sculptures and paintings that you learned through art textbooks and history textbooks during your student days, or is it the warm and moist sea breeze that you really felt as a tourist? Legend has it that the goddess of wisdom Athena and Poseidon both wanted to name the city with their own names, and the gods Zeus decided to let them compete with wisdom. Eventually Athena won and they became the protectors of the city. The city was named ‘Athens’. Αθήνα // ATHENA Thousands of years ago, the ancient Greeks expertly beautified the human body and idealized the perfect image of the gods in their hearts. When you set foot on the stone gate of the Acropolis, through the mottled wall, the superb epic erected by this pillar appears to you. Odysseus in Greek mythology suddenly appears, the world of heroes and gods. The door slowly opened. And Odyssey, the original meaning is a long and tortuous adventure, just like the story of Odysseus returned to his hometown after two decades from participating in the Trojan War to the sea adventure … Odysseus adventure Note: Ulysse is a hero in Roman mythology. It corresponds to Odysseus in the Greek myth ‘Odyssey’ and is in the watch industry. When referring to Ulysses and conquering the sea, There is also a name for this person: he is Mr. Ulysse Nardin. Mr. Ulysse Nardin, who is the ‘Athens watch’ he created, is famous in the world of watches and clocks with marine astronomical timepieces. ▲ Ulysse Nardin (1823-1876) 1823 Where the story begins On January 22, 1823, Mr. Athens was born in Le Locle, a small city in northwestern Switzerland near the French border and the birthplace of watchmaking One of the land. His father, Léonard-Frédéric, was his first enlightenment teacher. When he was a teenager, his father began to personally teach him the techniques of watchmaking. Subsequently, Ulysse Nardin was fortunate to continue his studies with the master watchmaker William DuBois (William Dubus), famous for making astronomical clocks and astronomical timepieces. ▲ Le Locle1846 After years of training in founding the Athenian watch, he became a watchmaking expert in complex watches. In 1846, the 23-year-old Mr. Athens founded the Ulysse Nardin watch in his own name. He chose to take root in the birthplace of Le Roque, Switzerland, a city in the Swiss Jura Valley region that was the birthplace of the professional watchmaking industry. Mr. Athens here foresaw the forward-looking of watchmaking technology, and continued his entrepreneurial spirit, always thinking about the next major development milestone. ▲ UN Building in Le Locle 1878 Navigation business started Mr. Athens discovered that the demand for navigation and astronomical navigation pocket watches was increasing, so he started navigation related business. In the 1870s, naval and international shipping companies in many countries used Athenaeum’s nautical astronomical timepieces as standard equipment. Ordinary people generally own pocket watches because it is more conducive to the development of commerce and can also bring daily life. To make things easier and more organized. The precision instruments invented by these Athenian watches in the early days made them a catalyst for the development of all walks of life and between countries, not only making great contributions to society, but also laying an indelible foundation for the success of Athenian watches themselves. Since then, Athens Watch has continued to develop. Its innovative spirit, superb technology and forward-looking strategies have enabled the company to continuously achieve impressive results and increase its reputation. 1936 The nautical clock made in Athens included in the ‘Sea of ​​Ci’ is considered to be the most reliable marine instrument ever made, which makes Athens the earliest and only Swiss watch brand to enter the ‘Sea of ​​Ci’. Athens witnessed time, and ‘Sea of ​​Ci’ recorded Athens. In the ‘Chronometer’ entry of the first edition of ‘Sea of ​​Ci’ in the Republic of China in 1936, it was clearly stated that, nowadays, the best products are made by the company NARDIN . The superb watchmaking craftsmanship and outstanding precision have made the Athenian watch the representative of the ‘chronograph’ of the 20th century, which will never fail to contain Chinese classics. ▲ Record of the Athenian Watch in Cihai in 1983. For decades, Athenian Watch has won more than 4,300 watchmaking awards, 18 of which are world-respected gold awards. However, in 1983, the quartz crisis forced the Athens watch company to sell the brand. I did not expect that this turn was a great transformation for the Athens watch. The merchant Rolf W. Schnyder believed that Athens Watch was an imaginative company and had the potential to become a market-leading brand, so he resolutely bought the Athens Watch Factory.
