Ingenious ingenuity, ingenious embroidery embellishes the watch
Embroidery is the earliest decorative language of human beings, and the jewel in the embroidery technique, the subtle embroidery technique, has a history of more than 2000 years, and it is one of the traditional rare crafts in China. I’m curious, how much space can I play and imagine on the dial of a watch? Under the hands of the subtle embroidery master Zhao Hongyu, the tiny texture is like a canvas. The texture depicted by silk threads has aura, birds and beasts, flowers and plants, and the delicate beauty brought by this technique is no problem. Taking the silk thread as the carrier, the master repeatedly passed the needle and thread through the silk surface. Imagine subdividing a mulberry silk thread into one-seventh to eighty-tenth, and knitting it with a needle and a thread. Such a subtle embroidered watch, embellishes the dial with art, and gives a new expression of embroidery art, so that more people understand the art of embroidery and its fusion and modernity, just like the flowing time at this moment, it seems full precious.
Following the tradition, auspicious meaning implies cultural heritage
2018 is the year of the Wuxi year. On the basis of the limited-edition embroidered zodiac model of the lineage series, Fiyta combined the zodiac attributes of the Wuxi year-old dog to extract the festive meaning of ‘Rui Dog Nafu’. The design team combines traditional subtle embroidery skills and professional watchmaking spirit, and uses sophisticated double-sided embroidery to take subtle embroidery to the design and application of watches to a higher level, creating a limited timepiece of 5 pieces worldwide. In Chinese culture, the moral of dogs has a long history. Whether the ancient ancestors worshiped dogs as totems, or the legend of farming civilization giving godly food to god dogs, they all reflect the dog’s agile behavior, loyalty, and close psychic nature. In the zodiac culture, dogs carry the auspicious meaning of ‘Wanwanglaicai’ and ‘dogs come to wealth’.
This watch draws the image of a Swiss dog on the silk dial by virtue of the subtle embroidery master Zhao Hongyu’s excellent manual skills. The Swiss dog’s body hair is moist and delicate, like agar. The lines have a strong sense of direction, and the meticulous stitches make the dog’s body yellow, gray, and white with a sense of layers, bright and dark, and full of life. The sloping ear curve runs to a degree, and the color gradient is natural. The pearl-like pupils are crystal clear, enthusiastic and full of enthusiasm. The bridge of the nose stands tall, the mouth is slightly open, the white canine teeth and pink tongue are all realistically painted with delicate embroidery. Rui.
The design of the watch face is inspired by the ancient coin ‘Kaiyuan Tongbao’. Lishu-style quaint pin nails blend the elegance of the oriental scent of ink. Against the backdrop of time, with deep cultural connotation, each reading becomes an extraordinary enjoyment. With a simple red ‘戌’ on the plate, the Chinese lunar calendar year of the 1898 year is indicated. The entire watch not only creates the festive meaning of Rui Nafu, but also has a unique aesthetic form when the watch is read.
In 2018, at the moment when the cover is opened and closed, a glorious time legend is written for the wearer.
