Material Scheme Watch Big Names Play Games On Your Wrist

Unparalleled ceramic hardness
Want to let those “traces” accidentally left in your life disappear from your watch? Choose ceramics, it will never let you down!
In the 1980s, Radar began to develop new materials that are more suitable for making watches. Later, it was found that ceramics, which are mostly used in the aerospace field and medical device manufacturing, are very lightweight, and their corrosion resistance and wear resistance are extremely high. Have you ever worn this watch for years and months without interruption? (It’s a matter of earning money …) So, radar began to apply ceramics to the watch manufacturing process. That was basically 1982, and the popularity of ceramics is just a matter of recent years. In addition to feeling the foresight of the radar prophet, we really have to try this ‘oldest brand’ new material. !!
The more ceramic, the harder
Longines Concas Sport Watch
Longines combines ceramic and steel perfectly in its own sports series, Comcast. I have to say that Longines, whose roots are elegant and ingrained, cannot hide the elegant temperament from the inside out, regardless of the hippie, sporty, feminine, and sturdy design and materials. The bezel, the surface, and the ceramic inserted between the straps have a silky soft touch just by looking at the picture. Such an elegant and chic watch has a water-resistant depth of 300 meters, which is very surprising.
Radar (Rado) silver diamond series mechanical watch
Reference price: RMB 28,800
In addition to the signature ceramics, the silver diamond series is more dynamic in the transition between the dial and the strap. Especially compared to the square shape of the overall ceramic and precision ceramics, the silver diamond series emphasizes streamline and vision. The impact, let us see the radar brand’s non-stop efforts in innovation.
IWC Da Vinci Chronograph
The signature barrel-shaped Da Vinci series, the middle part of the ceramic case is made of zirconia, and the bezel, case back, buttons and crown are made of super-hard grade 5 titanium, not only dazzling in color Bright and dazzling, the two materials of titanium and ceramic are extremely tough, scratch-resistant, and have a pleasant silk touch, which is definitely a watch that can’t be considered. Although it is called a chronograph, it can completely control the temperament of the workplace.
Chanel J12 Unisex Watch
Reference price: RMB 33mm 40,100 38mm 43,500
The ceramic material was indeed developed by radar, but it was definitely carried forward by Chanel’s hand. When J12 was born in 2002, no matter in the fashion or watch industry, it was like dropping a bombshell. It not only changes the elegance brought by the traditional Chanel, but also introduces neutral beauty into the brand’s watch series for the first time. After 16 years of ceramics, it really made everyone take it seriously. It is of epoch-making significance for both brands and ceramics.
Women are reminded to wear ceramic watches or jewelry. It will not change due to cold air or high temperature, but it will change according to the temperature of the wearer. It is a highly skin-friendly product.
Certina DS First Lady
A lot of women like white watches, no matter what style, white is just fine. So this sports watch representing youth and passion brings together different white materials: white ceramic bezel, white rubber strap … These trendy materials not only make it look good, but also reduce the wearing weight and are very lightweight.
Pragmatism of waterproof skin-friendly rubber
Rubber is as waterproof as stainless steel, and it is more lightweight and skin-friendly than the latter, which is especially suitable for ‘sets’ with sports watches!
We think that the watch with rubber is the best choice for sports men. Because it is particularly comfortable to wear in cold weather, and it is waterproof and durable, it is definitely a very practical material. Some people say that rubber ages quickly and is easy to be dirty, but it is not difficult to maintain and maintain, and the price is relatively more affordable, and it belongs to the category with a higher comprehensive score. In recent years, many brands not only use rubber as the material of the strap, but also considerately using a circle of rubber reinforcement on the bezel to cushion the impact of external pressure on the bezel under special circumstances, which is very thoughtful.
TAG Heuer Calella Calibre 1 Limited Edition
Reference price: RMB 33,900
TAG Heuer sells well because of its relaxed and casual, and always connected with racing and passion. I don’t know if Chinese people really like this kind of surging. In short, in the United States, TAG Heuer can basically do it. The Carrera Calibre 1 Limited Edition incorporates traditional manual mechanical watchmaking into its family’s proud racing series, Carrera, with a unique design of the dial, adding design aesthetics and durability. And it seems that the rubber strap with this kind of sports watch is the best use.
Jaeger LeCoultre Polo World Time Chronograph
Reference price: RMB 246,000
I do n’t know if you found it. Once the brand starts to use special materials, it must be more than just one, it is a kind of mix and match. Jaeger-LeCoultre, Reverso, has a great reputation and is very energetic. Now the brand uses a large area of ​​ceramics, combined with rubber and ceramics to create a polo watch showing the world time. All materials are hard and skin-friendly, especially suitable for sports wear. And it is interesting that in this world, it is not the conventional New York, London, Hong Kong, but the priority of the largest polo stadium, which is just too cool!
This is down, as a military watch but rare in the industry and outside Panerai. This diving depth calculation watch inherits the iconic features of the Luminor series, which is not only suitable for specialized underwater activities, but also its unique masculine shape will definitely become the love of many Panerai fans. As a must-have watch, it is also very unique in the selection of materials. The titanium material of the entire watch reduces weight. The strap is made of rubber and equipped with a large frosted steel buckle. On the whole is a heavy, masculine sports watch.
Blancpain 500 Fathoms GMT
Reference price: RMB 209,000
The charm of the 500 Fathoms lies in its professional diving watch identity and the low-key orthodoxy that is different from other Blancpain models. It is equipped with a helium automatic pressure relief valve, which is especially suitable for use in a fully enclosed diving environment, with a water resistance of up to 1,000 meters. In addition, in terms of material selection, this masculine 500 Fathoms watch is also equipped with a brushed titanium dial with a diameter of 48 mm, and a rubber-lined canvas strap, which can be said to be both waterproof and stylish, but also attractive. You can’t feel where the ‘rubber’ is.

One Of The Three Complicated Functions Of The Watch: The Depression Of The Perpetual Calendar

I believe that entering 2012 by itself is enough to make people sensitive to the calendar even if there is no need to start with too much detail. In fact, in the field of watches, although the perpetual calendar is one of the three complicated functions, it is also the least practical and the most boring. Not to mention that the leap year function can only be used once in such a low-key and low-key manner for only 4 years. Just the other two recognized complicated function tourbillons and three questions, one can see the oscillating weight and escapement system keep turning, and one can hear the sound of a pleasant spring time, without having to think which one is more windy.
In fact, the perplexity of the perpetual calendar is much more than that. The Gregorian calendar we use now is determined after patching up the ancient Egyptian calendar, that is, 365 days a year. But in fact, the time for the earth to orbit the sun is 365 days, 5 hours, 48 ​​minutes, 46 seconds, so in order to make up for the insufficient time, it is set to be a leap year of 366 days every 4 years. However, supplementing one day every 4 years is actually not accurate enough, so that every 100 years should be the leap year, but the day is still deducted as 365 days. For example, 1900, 2100, and 2200 are 365 days. But please note that I did not mention the year 2000 here, because the deduction of one day every 100 years is still not accurate enough, so the day of every 400 years is still 365 days, such as 2000, 2400, 2800 …
相信 I believe that if you can understand the text above, if you can’t read it against the calendar on your computer, then you must have the personality of a mathematician. But these are not all that perpetual calendars have become complex functions. The last straw that crushed the watchmaker was Caesar the Great and his son Augustus. They took one day from February and added it to their birthday month, that is, July and August, so February changed. Become the poor 28 days now.
As a result, thanks to the ancient Egyptians and Romans, the reality of creating a perpetual calendar has become one of the complicated functions in the world of watches.
In fact, the perpetual calendar function is not like a literal understanding, never need to be adjusted. Every perpetual calendar watch on the market must be returned to the original factory for adjustment by a technician every 100 years, otherwise it will still show 29 days in February. Therefore, if it is troublesome, do not choose a perpetual calendar watch before the 100-year integer. Today, only Franck Muller claims that their Aeternitas watches have a true ‘perpetual calendar’ function, which means that they do not need to be adjusted every 100 and 400 years, which is a mechanical wonder.
In addition, compared to other watches, the perpetual calendar function is not only complicated, it is also very troublesome to adjust. Of course, if you wear it every day and the movement is constantly running, you don’t need to adjust it. But if you put it down and don’t wear it, let the movement stop for a few days, it will be a headache to adjust it, because each display is interlocked, so it is easy to jam the movement if it is not adjusted properly.
The calendar cannot be adjusted from 22 o’clock in the morning to 2 o’clock in the morning, because this period is the time period when the gears of the calendar are fully engaged and are slowly operating. The contraindications of different brands may be longer, which needs to refer to the manual.
The month cannot be adjusted between the 26th of the month and the 2nd of the next month. At this time, the adjustment movement must be stuck.
Almost all perpetual calendar functions are prohibited from callback, that is to say, if it is adjusted for one day, it needs to stop the core for one day.
Therefore, the best way to maintain the function of the perpetual calendar is to ensure that the movement works properly and is never adjusted. The most secure method is to purchase an ‘automatic winding box’ so that when the watch is not worn, it can wind the movement to prevent pauses.
In fact, the perpetual calendar is not without any benefit. On the contrary, I think this is a very affectionate feature. Imagine how, in the face of such a complicated calendar for human beings, the master watchmaker has exhausted the heavens and the heavens with all his decisive feelings, and then realized all the changes in this function. As the owner of the perpetual calendar watch, it is not difficult to realize the mood of ‘the deceased is like a husband, and he is not willing to leave day and night’ when thinking of these.

Vacheron Constantin Maître Cabinotier Master Loft Craftsman Series Flying Back To The Heavenly Ceremony Tourbillon

After presenting Vacheron Constantin as the most sophisticated timepiece in the history of watchmaking, with 57 complex functions reference number 57260, it once again launches a Maître Cabinotier master series of loft craftsman flying back to the sky . This timepiece is certified by the Geneva Seal, and was re-produced by the three watchmakers who created reference number 57260, and uses two complications of this outstanding timepiece: the ceremonial tourbillon and dual flyback instructions. A glimpse into the stunning 1990 movement through its contemporary design. This highly accurate manual-winding mechanical movement rests in a platinum case with a diameter of 45.7 mm. Four patents are applied to this unique watch.

Inspired by reference number 57260
 On September 17, 2015, Vacheron Constantin presented a timepiece with 57 complications-hailed as the most sophisticated timepiece in the history of watchmaking. This mechanical miracle was developed by three watchmakers in the brand’s attic workshop and took eight years to develop and produce. It was launched on the occasion of Vacheron Constantin’s 260th anniversary celebration. This unique timepiece is specially commissioned to use the most advanced technology while retaining the traditional watchmaking concept and certified by the Geneva Seal. The research and development and technology used to create this super complicated timepiece have become the development resources and source of inspiration for these three watchmakers, and are committed to the independent use of some of these complex functions.

 The Maître Cabinotier Master Craftsman Series Flying Back Ceremony Ceremony Tourbillon is the debut of this project. Not only does it have a contemporary design, it also carries two complex functions with reference number 57260: dual flyback instructions and a ceremonial tourbillon. The flyback function governs hours and minutes, while the dual-axis tourbillon is equipped with a spherical balance spring. The movement is covered with NAC (a special metal alloy), which can be seen through the magnificent side window of the case. As part of the Maître Cabinotier master craftsman series, this timepiece fully demonstrates Vacheron Constantin’s outstanding watchmaking achievements, customized services and overall superiority.

Double flyback system
 The 1990 manual-winding mechanical movement, developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin, is equipped with a retrograde hour and minute indicator that instantly returns. The technology of the dual flyback display is amazing and the visual effects are stunning. The speed at which the hands fly back to zero instantly requires special skills to ensure their accurate indication. For this purpose, the hands are made of ultra-lightweight and durable titanium.
Ceremonial Tourbillon

 The light jumping of the retrograde hand is in sharp contrast to the solemn operation of the ceremonial tourbillon with a spherical balance spring. At 9 o’clock, there is a sapphire crystal glass arch window. You can see the elegant structure of the tourbillon continuously rotating around the double axis. The Armament Ceremony Tourbillon is named after an 18th century French watchmaker Antide Janvier, which is an astronomical clock with a Armillary Ceremony device. The intertwined appearance of the tourbillon ring is similar to the ancient ‘celestial globe’. In addition, the spherical balance spring invented by Jacques-Frédéric Houriet for the first time in 1814 is extremely rare in today’s watchmaking world. Its appearance can ensure the coaxial operation of the hairspring and always ensure the isochronism of the balance wheel. The tourbillon frame is made of ultra-light aluminum alloy. The tourbillon presents the Vacheron Constantin Malta Cross logo every 15 seconds. In addition, you can enjoy this device every 30 seconds through the sapphire crystal on the side of the case.
High-precision movement

 Apart from its fascinating mechanical operation and structure, the ceremonial tourbillon has breathtaking timing accuracy. Equipped with a new escapement developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin, it consists of a silicon escape wheel and escapement lever and a durable diamond escapement. The escapement uses many high-tech materials to reduce weight as much as possible to ensure the excellent performance of this watch, and its performance far exceeds the standard of the Swiss Official Observatory Testing Agency (COSC). It is worth noting that to achieve this level of precision, the device must take into account the huge energy consumed by the dual flyback instructions.
Contemporary design and refinement
 Another original feature of the Maître Cabinotier Master Craftsman Series Flying Back Ceremony Tourbillon is its modern-style movement structure and polished finish. The 1990 movement uses a deep anthracite NAC plating coating to create a mirror-polished effect. The front face of the dial shows the modern structure of the movement, and the sharply cut bridges are decorated with brushed and polished sunbursts and Geneva ripples. The design on the back follows the traditional style. The elegant Geneva ripples contrast with the overall contemporary style of the watch, making it an unparalleled unique piece in the Vacheron Constantin product line. As a symbol of superior craftsmanship, chamfering and grinding, which requires great patience, has taken more than 130 hours. The time indications are displayed on the double-layered dial, while the cut-outs just show the outline of the movement and its contemporary polished finish. On the right, the flyback minute and hour hands mark a semicircle on the brushed sunburst dial, highlighting the inlaid white gold hour markers and black minute scale. For perfect balance, the second hand of the tourbillon frame on the other side rotates around the silver-plated graduated ring. The ‘Armillary Tourbillon’ on the dial is engraved with the Geneva Seal, which fully reflects the ultimate quality of the timepiece.

I’m In Kyoto, Listening To The Twilight Morning Bell With Jaeger-lecoultre

On the way to the Kansai Airport, I still don’t know what kind of ‘mysterious watch’ Jaeger-LeCoultre is going to release. Even in this thousand-year-old ancient capital, which was chosen as the world’s premiere, Kyoto, we and our group still have no news. But even in the clouds and fog, before we saw the protagonist, we did not expect that the surprises arranged by Jaeger-LeCoultre were waves after waves! The accommodation arranged by Jaeger-LeCoultre is the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto, not far from Kiyomizu-dera Temple. The top three hotels in Kyoto are most impressive than sitting on a Japanese-style garden with a history of more than 800 years. From entering the bamboo forest walkway in front of the hotel lobby, you can feel a quiet and comfortable atmosphere. After entering the garden behind the hotel theme, a small lake is surrounded by greenery, koi swim in the lake, and the wind blows through the forest leaves The sound of rustling, whether it is sitting in an open-air seat by the lake or in a tea house hidden in the elm forest, a cup of coffee and a cup of hot tea can make people immediately forget the annoying routine. In addition to Japanese-style gardens, the rooms are also decorated in an elegant and simple Japanese style. The wooden grille is decorated with beige birds flying through the bamboo forest wallpaper, and the bamboo forest outside the window is swaying in the sunlight. And all the detailed arrangements in the room are more meticulous, comfortable and intimate, fully showing the uniqueness of Japan in making travelers feel at home. Later, Jaeger-LeCoultre arranged a special Japanese cultural experience tour—Japanese traditional Maki-e handicraft. Teacher Maki-e was invited to teach you how to draw. Maki-e is a decorative pattern drawn on lacquer with gold, silver, toner, and other materials. It is a traditional Japanese craftsmanship. The technique of fixing the silver powder or gold powder to the lacquer according to the desired pattern by using the viscosity of the lacquer. ‘Lacquer’ refers to the sap of the lacquer tree, which is applied to the appliance, in addition to fixing silver and gold powder, and also making the appliance more shiny. This technique is one of Japan’s national treasure-level traditional crafts, and many top brands have also applied it to the decoration of face plates. Detailed craftsmanship and aesthetics are indispensable basic skills, but the uncle’s dazzling and trembling hands ‘handwork’, compared with the teacher’s exquisite works, this ‘wave’ can only be said to be of the kindergarten class . It was not until the evening when the highlight of the trip was announced that the uncle understood Jaeger-LeCoultre’s careful arrangements. The theme of this brand is ‘exquisite core, the art of time’, especially the release of a new masterpiece of timepieces-the outstanding traditional master series perpetual calendar minute repeater watch in the real temple of the thousand years old temple in Kyoto. Renowned art masters Mr. Fukuda Kiyoshi (embroidery craftsmanship), Mr. Suda Kenji (wooden craftsmanship), and Mr. Yamagishi Kazuo (Noh) show traditional techniques and artistic techniques that have attracted worldwide attention. At the same time, there were also two Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmakers and enamel craftsmen who came to attend from Ru Valley, Switzerland. It is similar to Japanese embroidery and inlay craftsmanship, including not only exquisite watchmaking, but also enamel craftsmanship with a history of hundreds of years. At the launch of this brand new watch, Ms. Catherine Rénier, President of Jaeger-LeCoultre, explained why the world premiere was held in Kyoto in such a short time after the SIHH Geneva watch exhibition, and said: ‘Actually this watch Before SIHH, we discussed internally whether we should also display it during the watch exhibition, but at that time, the spherical tourbillon Westminster Zhongle perpetual calendar watch was confirmed to be released. It integrates the masterpiece of watchmaking craftsmanship, and it is impossible The pinnacle of doubt, but this perpetual calendar minute repeater watch is also the top of the revolution. We don’t want the two to appear at the same time and cause the focus to be blurred, so we decided to let this watch also have its own highlight moment, and Art and culture are strongly linked to introduce its speciality. ‘In addition, Mr. Christian Lurent, senior watchmaking manager of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s highly complex craft workshop, said:’ Making a movement with a superimposed complex function is not the largest for Jaeger-LeCoultre. Challenge, but we do n’t want to make a huge watch that can only be stored in a safe. We want the owner to do whatever he wants. Wearing a watch with a large complex function with exquisite craftsmanship, you can lift your wrist at any time and press the start button to listen to the beautiful music of three questions. More importantly, it has become a top no matter in terms of wearing comfort and ease of use. A watch with great complications that can be worn daily. ‘Jaeger-LeCoultre incorporates’ retro elements ‘in this new work, but this retro is not a’ physical ‘presentation, but a deeper interpretation: on the wrist The percussion of an antique self-sounding pocket watch is reproduced on the watch. Due to the size and space advantages of antique self-singing three-question pocket watches, no matter whether it is in the resonance space of sound transmission or the manufacture of the sounding time report structure, the smaller size of the ringing watch is easier to achieve the effect of sound transmission. It is also deeper and longer. The goal of this questionnaire is to challenge such a sound effect in a small space. In order to achieve this goal, Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmaking research and development team devoted five years to acoustic research, and finally created a group of unprecedented gong components. This new set of gongs is different from the common minute repeater gongs. It is not a flat coil pattern, but a three-dimensional coil with ‘height and space’, which is very different from the traditional style. Such a special gong structure is installed in the case in a three-dimensional manner. The whole group of gongs is located near the side of the movement near the mirror, and then extends down to the bottom of the movement as a whole, so it can create a greater resonance as a whole. space. The gong adopts a square cross-section and an articulated ‘Trebuchet’ scale hammer, which can ensure the maximum strength of the gong and minimize the interference caused by the rebound of the gong. It is matched with the special shape of the gong to achieve a strong And deep and distant ringing effect. This watch is equipped with Jaeger-LeCoultre’s 950 winding movement. For watches with a perpetual calendar function, the automatic movement allows the wearer to stop the underpowered watch and must remember to wind or adjust it. Inconvenience of school date. In addition, the perpetual calendar date can be quickly adjusted back and forth, which greatly improves the convenience of use. When flipped over to the case back, the first thing I saw was a complex mechanism of asking the watch. At first glance, I thought it was a hand-wound movement, but wasn’t it an automatic movement? In fact, the automatic rotor of the movement is located between the perpetual calendar and the minute repeater mechanism, so the automatic rotor is almost hidden from the back of the watch, but the details of the movement and the watch can be seen more clearly. Actions when the structure is running. The faceplate of this masterpiece of timepiece is decorated with machine-engraved carvings and big fire enamel. The perpetual calendar display plate is clear and concise and easy to read. In particular, there is a safety window above the hour and minute hands, which will be displayed between 10 pm and 1 am to inform the wearer that the time or calendar cannot be adjusted during this period, otherwise the movement may be damaged.
