Ruby Sings A Declaration Of Valentine’s Love Glashütte Presents A Special Limited Edition Serenade Watch

Time is relative. This is especially true when you fall in love. Time flies, as if every minute will extend to eternity. In order to let the queen of your heart enjoy every second, Glashütte Original launches a special edition watch inspired by Valentine’s Day. Serenade watches blend perfectly with sharp contrasts. Highly precise German watchmaking art and dazzling jewellery and gorgeous red embellishment are here to collide passionately, giving this elegant special edition watch an irresistible charm. This model (limited edition of 50 pieces worldwide) is glorious and glorious, it is the finishing touch of the outstanding ladies series.

Love ‘red’ makeup, like love

Fine mechanical watches usually use ruby ​​as the movement gem. This Serenade watch is set with a total of 52 brilliant rubies (representing 52 weeks of the year) around the bezel of a 36mm stainless steel case. The convex circle placed on the delicate crown structure is dazzling and contrasts with 52 ring rubies. Crimson and white natural mother-of-pearl dials contrast the beauty.

The dazzling gloss makes this organic material so fascinating. The ultra-thin dial is made of mother-of-pearl, a brittle material that requires special care when handling it. The craftsmen of Glashütte’s original own watch factory meet this challenge with exemplary skills. Each of the dial blanks is meticulously carved with three curvy Roman numerals and set with eight beautifully cut diamonds.

Smooth white gold polished hour and minute hands complement the special symbolic seconds hand. The slender pointer uses the symbol of infinity as a counterweight, low-key telling the eternal nature of true love, and writing a permanent and memorable movement for a romantic marriage proposal night. A cherry red Louisiana alligator strap completes this watch.

Heart of true love

The movement of the Serenade watch runs at 28,000 vibrations per hour. The 39-22 self-winding movement created by the brand’s watch factory is carefully crafted with superb watchmaking technology, just like all the movements created by its own watch factory in Glashütte.

Of course, the original intention of this watch cannot be ignored. The sapphire glass case back provides a panoramic view of the movement and all its subtleties, such as a three-quarter splint or gooseneck trimming mechanism. This structure has been used by watchmakers in Glashütte since 1888, along with its chic name (gooseneck trimmer). The movement of the watch is adjusted by the adjustment screw on the gooseneck trimmer, which adjusts the balance spring through the adjuster. Adjusting the position of the adjuster can change the effective length of the hairspring, thereby adjusting the travel time to obtain the maximum accuracy. The 39-22 calibre has a power reserve of 40 hours, and it is also equipped with a stop-second mechanism, allowing precise setting of time such as searching for capsules. Therefore, no matter how ‘relative’ you feel at the moment, you won’t waste every minute.

The new Serenade watch is limited to 50 pieces worldwide. It can be purchased in Glashütte original stores around the world and selected authorized dealers from January 2019.

Simple Low-key Tasting Omega Flying Steel Annual Calendar Watch

Different from the Omega disc Hour Vision all-gold calendar watch introduced by the previous watch house, today we introduce this disc-fly 431.13.41.22.02.001 all-steel annual calendar watch Although the appearance looks quite similar to the Hour Vision almanac, but many details are different. It can be said that it is a simplified version of Hour Vision, but it is not part of the Hour Vision family. Although it is a simplified version, any key No element of sex is lost …

 Before I talk about this watch, I still want to talk about the history of Omega De Ville. This series was born in 1960. It was a trendy time for ultra-thin watches. De Ville means French. Omega has been a classic and elegant watch series since its birth. The times are evolving, but the elegant atmosphere of the urban gentleman and lady that the disco series still keeps has not changed. In 2007, Omega launched the new self-produced movements 8500 and 8501. At the same time, Omega launched a new watch equipped with these two movements named Hour Vision, and since then the disc flying series has added a new family.

 The Hour Vision family belongs to the Disciphy series. The name is named after the homonym of Our Vision, which means the vision of betting time and moving towards a more brilliant future. When this watch appeared in front of everyone, everyone looked bright, showing a completely different feeling from the constellation, both in size and design seem to be more imposing than the constellation. Although this watch cannot be counted as Hour Vision, it does evolve from Hour Vision.

 This watch is viewed from the front. The case is exactly the same in shape and size as the Hour Vision, such as the lugs that extend to the bezel; the shape of the bezel is curved; the case diameter is also 41 mm. It can be said that the emergence of Hour Vision has set the standard for the new UFO.

 Some people may ask why there are so many similarities with Hour Vision but they cannot be called Hour Vision? In fact, the answer lies on the side of this watch. The biggest feature of Hour Vision is the case that is completely transparent. The case of this disc flying calendar does not use the method of metal and sapphire crystal like Hour Vision. The most traditional all stainless steel case design, but this will not affect the use of the watch.

 We see that because the steel watch does not use the so-called double case design of the gold watch, it is impossible for this watch to create the full-sided feel of the gold watch. Although this watch cannot see the side of the movement, the beauty of the front is enough to ignore it, and the all-metal case also makes this watch stronger. So we see that the sapphire crystal back of this watch is neither fixed to the lugs with screws like the Hour Vision, nor the traditional screw-in case, but a press-in case, but it still ensures this. The water-resistant depth of the watch reaches 100 meters, and can withstand impacts up to 5000G.

 The dial of this watch is clean and tidy, using the most classic black, white, and blue colors. Although there is no flashy Hour Vision, the technical level of any element on the dial has not been reduced. On the milky dial, the logo and scale The hour and minute hands are still made of 18K white gold and are finely polished, and the edges are polished. The calendar display window is recessed, and each bevel is extremely delicate. The large blue steel seconds hand in the center is so eye-catching; the circular arc-shaped anti-glare anti-wear sapphire crystal of this watch can be said to have made a significant contribution to protecting these delicate elements on the dial.

Although this watch has a lot of low-key and simple dials, but the function settings have not shrunk at all, and it is very practical for daily wear. From the 3 o’clock month date window and the Annual Calendar under the Logo let us know that this is an annual calendar. This means that the watch can automatically identify the 30th and 31st of the month, and only need to be manually adjusted once a year on March 1st. This minimalist display of the almanac matches this watch’s style extremely well.

 From the perspective of wearing comfort, it is impossible for any metal chain strap to be as soft as the leather. From the perspective of matching, the black strap is undoubtedly the best choice, so this watch is the most traditional one. The most classic alligator leather strap, but the single folding buckle with this strap is not very comfortable for friends with thinner wrists.

 This watch is equipped with a movement model of 8601, which is an annual calendar version of the 8500 movement. This movement is certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (COSC) and uses Omega’s proprietary advanced coaxial escapement device and a cardless hairspring pendulum. Wheel, which can ensure accuracy and reliability for a long time.

 As the 8601 movement is a normal version (the distinguished version is called 8611), its rotor and straddle balance bridge are made of the same material as the main base plate, but its elegant all-black screws and exquisite Arabic pattern of Geneva corrugated The perfect combination makes the entire movement show a unique aesthetic in luxury. In addition, the movement uses a dual barrel automatic winding system. The power reserve should be 60 hours, but because this watch requires Part of the power is allocated to the instantaneous annual calendar function, so the power reserve becomes 55 hours.

 Of course, this movement will definitely not lack the latest scientific and technological achievements of Omega, which is a silicon spring and balance. The use of silicon in this watch can be identified by the ‘Si 14’ etched on the balance wheel and the back.

Summary: First of all, I admit that this is a very cost-effective watch with the latest appearance; the most advanced technology; the simplest and practical functions and the most reasonable price (RMB 71900), all of this is all in this The watch is realized. If you need the most up-to-date and reasonably priced dress watch, it is absolutely right.

Leading Luxury Sports Tasting Vacheron Constantin Perimeter Series Perpetual Calendar Chronograph

In 2012, a new breakthrough was made for the Vacheron Constantin’s Overseas series sports watch. The Overseas Perpetual Calendar Chronograph stands out in this collection with its 18K pink gold case. This watch combines stylish elegance with high complexity. Official number: 49020 / 000R-9753

   The new watch features two of the most popular features for high-quality mechanical watch enthusiasts-the ‘timer’ and ‘perpetual calendar’, which fully reflect the traditional and superb skills of Vacheron Constantin’s watchmaking excellence. Combining all the important features of Vacheron Constantin’s vertical and horizontal series, the Overseas Perpetual Calendar Chronograph exudes an elegant and distinguished personality.

   As a sports watch, its functions can also be said to be very powerful. The complex function of the perpetual calendar alone can make it one of the first-line watches. charm.

Appearance

   This perpetual calendar watch uses a 42mm 18K pink gold case with a watch thickness of 12.80mm. I believe that this volume is not achievable by anyone. The watch also uses a soft iron inner case to protect the mechanical movement from magnetic fields up to 25,000 A / m. The dial is a light gray milky white dial with black indicators and scales. Although it integrates the functions of the perpetual calendar, moon phases, and timekeeping, the overall looks orderly. At the same time with brown alligator leather pink gold folding buckle strap, waterproof depth of 150 meters.

   The 18K pink gold case makes the watch look luxurious and luxurious as a whole. Some people may say that as a sports watch, the power of the function should be more important than the appearance, but Vacheron Constantin used his concept to interpret the ‘luxury sports wrist Watch ‘brand new model, of course, before Hublot also tried diamond-set watches.

   Similarly, the ‘Luxury Sports Watch’ has got rid of the limitations of the rubber strap, and chose a high-end Mississippi alligator leather strap, with 18K pink gold folding buckle, showing high-end luxury.

   The bottom of the case is engraved with the famous Amerigo Vespucci brig pattern, and the iconic Vacheron Constantin logo also appears on the crown.

Features

   Perpetual calendar, tourbillon, and minute repeater have become the three most complicated functions in the watch industry. This watch has added timekeeping on the basis of the perpetual calendar. It can be seen that Vacheron Constantin has become one of the top ranks in terms of the movement. . At six o’clock is the moon phase display. Although this function is still inferior in practicability, from an aesthetic point of view, it has become the object of many people chasing.

   The three o’clock position of the watch is a 30-minute chronograph dial. At the same time, it also provides the date display function. The long hand indicates the date and the broken hand indicates the time. Like other timepieces in this series, the hour hand and hour scale are coated with a white luminous material to ensure that the time can still be clearly displayed in dark places.

   The watch has a 12-hour chronograph dial at 9 o’clock and has the function of displaying the day of the week. The long hand indicates the day of the week and the short hand indicates the chronograph reading.

   The twelve o’clock dial is a sub-dial displayed for 48 months and leap years. The dial is divided into four years, which corresponds to the leap year display at the center. This design not only saves space on the panel, but also increases the overall uniformity and readability.

Movement articles

   The horizontal and vertical perpetual calendar chronograph is equipped with a 1136 QP self-winding movement, of which 228 parts have included the main advanced watchmaking technology. This self-winding mechanical movement vibrates 21,600 times per hour and has a 40-hour power reserve.

Summary: From the function to the appearance, I believe that everyone knows the price of this watch. It is reported that the purchase of this watch also comes with a precious watch box with a built-in rotating mechanical device. Placing it on this device automatically winds it to ensure that the perpetual calendar display can be adjusted automatically and accurately. Although the ‘luxury sports’ watch concept is now respected by many brands, as a buyer, it seems that there will be a relatively long acceptance process in terms of price and psychological cognition.

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.
