ULYSSE NARDIN HANNIBAL MINUTE REPEATER TOURBILLION
Undefinable a dream watch, 30 pieces in the entire world, and cost of a fortune, this rare timepiece is the exact dedication to royal and prestige class in the world, I must say. A crazy beautiful and antique depiction of the army journeying in a war featuring the military history. What makes this watch such unique and immortal is a fact that it is a dispute between Art and War where both of them support each other. Where both go simultaneously hand in hand and both complement each other. Undoubtedly the Art is beautiful and War comes with its horrors, but let’s go into the literal sense of both the happenings. In War, we fight for life, whereas Art helps us to understand the nature of life, the way it works, the way it should work and how it is ruined, the complexities that ruin the smooth of life. The watch takes its inspiration from a conflict, which is much more ingenious as to conflict between Art and War or the conflict between mechanical and literary. The Art on the watch shows the Hannibal and his men crafted in white gold and set on a dial of graphite where Hannibal and his army of elephants is en route to their war with Rome across the mountains. The literal meaning is quite ubiqutious, whether war in art is the same as the war in life. It could be a metaphor for the internal conflicts that rage inside each and every one of us, this is what the watch that costs you a fortune is playing in--the literal meaning of Life and War and Art and its Theory.
The seventeenth century saw a rise of decorative symbols since people were not used to alphabets owing to illiteracy.

The bank had its own symbol as a beehive that represented thrift and industry which was combined with the black horse and resulted in the present logo of the bank.

The quality of their jeans was appreciable and incomparable and to create the effect they invented the two horses in opposite direction tearing jeans in vain. The purpose behind their immediate consideration was the patent that was to expire in some years. Later, the jeans gotta be famous for the title “ the jeans with the two horses”. The company was then onwards recognized to be known as “two-horse brand” till 1928 after which they adopted Levi’s trademark. The idea behind the logo remains as much the same as it was 125 years ago and is continuing to spread the same message since then. There have been modifications and renovations in the ogo but the basic concept and the ideology has been constant. Funny, how two horses and one message game played and ruled the entire clothing brand. That was the effect of using a symbol of an animal that is qite a shar, and storng animalm and the jeans that could resist the tear of a strong organ.
