Brightly Blooming Parmigiani Tonda 1950 Poppy Watch

Parmigiani firmly believes that watches can be a pleasant state of mind. Parmigiani’s watch works are carefully crafted with high enthusiasm and professional skills, while injecting the essence of freedom and courage, making the wearer full of positive and optimistic energy. The brand’s latest release also proves this. The dial’s bright and vivid colors are like the sun — the new Tonda 1950 Poppy watch will surely make you smile.

Aventurine, a feast of color
 Parmigiani’s new launch is intended to reinterpret the ‘Capri’ wind Tonda 1950 watch, which used turquoise dial. The concept of the Tonda 1950 Poppy watch also starts from the same starting point: to create a watch that displays the natural mineral structure, the design of which should highlight the inherent beauty of stone, and finally achieve a harmonious blend of color and material. Parmigiani chose high-quality aventurine as the raw material, and its natural color has been brightened to bring the dial to life. In terms of color and symbolism, this watch perfectly interprets the spirit of Parmigiani. Aventurine’s English name Aventurine is derived from the Italian “a l’ avventura” (accident), a symbol of freedom and erudition. This resonates in harmony with Parmigiani’s spirit—inspired by endless heritage, profound craftsmanship.
 Red is a manifestation of the aristocratic temperament. The pursuit of bright and rich colors reflects the creative spirit of Parmigiani. After rounds of patient screening, Parmigiani Watch Factory finally found the most suitable red, which made the watch bloom in color. On this Tonda 1950 Poppy watch, the amethyst red complements the charming rose gold of the case; this combination makes the rose gold bracelet more sparkling and seems to be given vitality; the crown is also decorated with a convex ruby—for This bright and gorgeous feast is marked by the last exclamation mark.

Brilliant light, unstoppable charm
 The simple-looking Tonda 1950 Poppy watch perfectly interprets the essence of Parmigiani’s style. The classic dial design is subtly embellished with triangular hour, minute hands and inlaid hour markers, and the poppy red aventurine material revitalizes the watch. At the same time, the diamond-set case further highlights this poetic and passionate color mix. The dazzling diamond not only completely surrounds the bezel, but also decorated on the lugs, showing the elegant appearance of the watch. The diamonds set are not the same size, but are arranged in order according to the size of the space, which enhances the overall sense of honor. The watch shines brightly and is a sincere tribute to the style of women.
Delicate and exquisite
 Tonda 1950 Poppy watch is equipped with ultra-thin homemade movement PF701. This movement is equipped with Pt950 platinum miniature eccentric automatic oscillating weight, which can work continuously for 42 hours. It uses the fine watchmaking touches that Parmigiani favors: the bridge is sandblasted, the pattern is drawn and decorated with ‘Geneva Ripples’, hand chamfered, and finally rhodium-plated. Similarly, each gear is also chamfered on both sides and polished with pearl dots, and can be cut only after gold plating. This exquisiteness and exquisiteness can be found in the extraordinary craftsmanship of each part of the watch, as well as in the elegant proportions of the case. This exquisiteness and exquisiteness also represents the real challenge of making aventurine dials.
 Aventurine is both hard and fragile. It is first cut from stones into pieces. It is then very delicately processed to ensure that it does not crack until a perfectly smooth aventurine dial is made. This incredible ingenuity does not stop there. Next, three small holes must be drilled in and around the aventurine dial to install the hands and time scales. Only after all these lengthy, laborious, intermittent or tense stages can the watch faithfully present the design of Parmigiani and truly lift the veil. Rich details are clearly visible or hard to detect, but they all deeply reflect Parmigiani’s extraordinary ideas and high standards.

Heavy Attack Seagull Watch Fans ‘qingyi’ Yuexiang Will Report Live

On the afternoon of August 10, 2013, Seagull Watches held a “Fantastic Wings” enjoyment event for fans of Seagull Watches in famous Chinese and foreign villages. The Watch House was invited to attend the event and detailed the event Report. At the event, the latest research results of the Seagull watch ‘odd wing’ three-dimensional tourbillon watch will be displayed, which will be another milestone research result of the seagull watch. The atmosphere of the event was lively, especially the technical explanation by Mr. Cao Weifeng, the chief designer of Seagull. It was really eye-opening, and introduced the three-dimensional tourbillon watches of various brands in a vertical direction. I believe that the friends at the scene have a better understanding of the tourbillon. Thorough, and there are many watch media on the scene to talk about national watches, but also expect outstanding performance on national watches.

  ‘Qingyi’ Pleasure Party event venue was selected in this quite classic tea house. I think that love watches are like tea tasting. People who don’t have the connotation cannot meditation tea. Just like an inexperienced person buying a watch, he would never understand the heritage behind the watch, the design process behind it, and the art of polishing. So I believe that this is also the purpose of Seagull Watch to choose such a place in the hope that more people can learn the story behind the watch.

When I first entered the tea house, I saw such a small rockery and a conspicuous sign-in guide.

  After the event, Cao Gong explained the development process and technical achievements of the ‘Qingyi’ three-dimensional tourbillon watch in detail. In the explanation, Cao Gong also analyzed the technical characteristics of the three-dimensional tourbillon of each brand in detail. What needs to be emphasized is that Cao Gong is the biggest contributor to this ‘odd wing’ three-dimensional tourbillon watch. From the design to the production of Cao Gong, he has made the ‘odd wing’ three-dimensional tourbillon watch.

  This is the latest appearance of the ‘odd wing’ three-dimensional tourbillon. At the beginning of the design, Cao Gong considered the seagull brand element as the design focus and extended the ‘seagull’ as the ‘wing’ element into the design of the multi-axis tourbillon frame. Implied soaring wings, realizing dreams, and at the same time supplemented with ‘oddness’-novelty and fancyness to further modify it, thus confirming the name ‘odd wing flywheel number one’. This also shows that there may be follow-up works such as ‘Fly Wing Flywheel II’.

  After Cao Gong explained, Seagull also arranged a French professional to teach you how to taste wine. This is really thoughtful, but I am worried that my friends who drive will be affected when they leave.

  During the rest period, Cao Gong and the famous watchmaker Liu Xingli were very happy to talk to each other. It is really a spark collision between cutting-edge figures in the Chinese watch circle. I believe they will have huge gains from each other.

  Finally, several cutting-edge figures from the Chinese watch circle were arranged to answer questions from watch fans and friends on Weibo, and all talked about their expectations for the national watch. The picture shows the famous watchmaker Mr. Liu Xingli (first from left), the famous designer of seagull watch teacher Cao Weifeng (second from left), the famous watchmaker Li Wei (third from left), and the famous watchmaker Changwei (fourth from left).

The giants of the Chinese bezel are gathered together to explain the doubts of many watch friends. Such an opportunity is not rare, but it is by no means impossible. This can be seen from the passion of watch fans. Teachers Chang and Liu have great enthusiasm for creating the Chinese people’s own green watch circle, and believe that China’s current major national watch brands have great opportunities. Mr. Li made suggestions on both national praise and inadequacy, and put forward valuable opinions on the development of national watches. Teacher Cao detailed the plan and research direction of the seagull watch for the friends at the scene, so that everyone has more confidence in the seagull watch.

  The most exciting thing for watch fans is the final draw of the event. In total, five lucky watch fans got DIY seagull watches provided by Seagull. This watch needs to be assembled by itself.

  This is the winner of the final prize (first from the left). It is a lucky one. The prize is also a seagull watch and has a dual calendar function.

  Finally, I still want to present the masterpiece of Cao Gong. This ‘Odd Wing Tourbillon No. 1’ can be said to be the hard work of Cao Gong. I also know such a thing in this event. In a word, it is ‘So and so brand is designed this way, I don’t use this design’. I think Cao Gong is the hope of the national watch, I hope that Cao Gong can make persistent efforts, and also wish that the seagull watch is getting better and better.
