The combination of the pear-shaped hands and off-white dial conveys the slightly yellowed elegance in memory, while the hands in the two small dials create the interest of details with the contrast of colors. The same pear-shaped hands also appear in Audemars Piguet’s Jules Audemars chronograph. Its off-white lacquered dial has the warm colors admired in the British style of the 18th century in the Queen Anne era, and the track scale is another important detail inherited from the era of pocket watches. Although the dial design also uses the combination of Breguet flower-shaped hour markers and pear-shaped hands, but the off-white dial shows a retro style under the brewing of another culture. In order to meet the aesthetic needs of the big watch era, the diameter of the case of Audemars Piguet Audemars chronograph has been expanded to 41 mm, but I thought that such a delicate and elegant piece, if it can be carried in a 36 mm case, its Nostalgia may be more vivid.
Although pear-shaped hands can be an important element in the design orientation of vintage watches, this style is not easily controlled by any watch. Watches with pear-shaped hands, first of all, the brand itself should have a certain historical heritage, otherwise it is not enough to show the characteristics of the times; secondly, pear-shaped hands are more suitable for models with less complicated functions and a slightly slim shell At the same time, the shape should have a delicate decoration and contrast, so that the beautiful temperament in the pointer can be revealed.
