Caruso-down to earth nature
    When it comes to Caruso, we have to start with gravity. As we all know, an apple hit Newton and finally ‘smashed’ the gravitation. It is precisely because of the gravity, no matter how delicate and clever the design of the watch’s mechanical movement, the error always exists, and the adjustment is inevitable. . As a result, resistance to gravity and ensuring the accuracy of watch operation have become the heart of countless watchmakers. Various design methods have begun to be tried. Tourbillon and Carloso were originally ‘one tree and two trees’ in the era. ‘Flowers’, but the principle structure is very different. Carloso, a late-producer, was highly hoped by watchmaker Bahne Bonniksen, thinking that it would be cheaper and more acceptable to the world. However, his cost was comparable to or even higher than the tourbillon. The fate of being gradually eliminated by the market has been doomed since its birth.

In summary: Caruso means precision and the unremitting exploration and endless cultivation of human beings, while the moon phase entrusts the thoughts and belonging of the soul. If we want to borrow a classic, Premier Wen Jiabao’s ‘looking at the stars and down to earth’ is the most appropriate. Looking up at the starry sky, pondering the changes in the profit and loss of the moon phase, down-to-earth, overlooking Caruso’s ‘dedication’. A small watch, two small dials above and below, have endless deep meaning, the unique moon phase and the outstanding collision of Caruso’s skills, creating a peak era. If there is a table like this, what can a husband ask for?
