Stainless Steel Yacht-master Ii Rolex New Watch Real Shot

[Special Report from Watch House Basel] On April 25, 2013, the annual watch industry event Basel International Watch Fair kicked off. The watch house team went to Switzerland. In front of you, we will bring the exhibition report in the first time, and send the new watch pictures of major brands as soon as possible. Here are some of Basel’s new products. The Rolex Yacht-Master II watch is a real shot. Friends who like Rolex can see it first.

 At the Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Fair 2013, Rolex launched its new Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II watch. This groundbreaking regatta chronograph was launched in 2007. For the first time, the new Yacht-Master II watch uses 904L stainless steel and is equipped with a blue ceramic ring. Designed for professional sailors and yacht lovers, this watch perfectly embodies Rolex’s expertise in precision, function and reliability.
 The Yacht-Master II watch has a unique Rolex-developed function: it can set the countdown from 1 to 10 minutes, and through the built-in mechanical memory function, reset the countdown with the same time limit. After the countdown is started, it can be precisely adjusted at any time according to the official countdown. The countdown function ideally meets the need for precise timing at critical moments before the start of the regatta. Although technically complicated, it is very easy to use: the countdown can be set by rotating the outer ring with RING COMMAND. The RING COMMAND outer ring was developed by Rolex and constitutes a new interactive interface between the outer ring and the movement.

 The Yacht-Master II watch has an oyster case with a diameter of 44 mm and a water resistance of 100 meters (330 feet). It is an example of solidity, elegance and perfect proportions. The distinctive middle case is cast from 904L stainless steel, which is extremely resistant to corrosion. The triangular-shaped bottom case is screwed tightly by Rolex watchmakers with special tools exclusive to the brand to completely seal the case. The winding crown adopts a patented triple-lock triple waterproof system, which is firmly screwed to the case and protected by a crown shoulder that is integrated with the middle case. The mirror is made of scratch-resistant sapphire. The fully sealed Oyster case provides the best protection for the Yacht-Master II’s highly accurate movement.

 The Yacht-Master II uses a fully automatic mechanical timing movement 4161 developed by Rolex. This movement is equipped with a column wheel. Like all Rolex movements, the 4161 calibre has also received the Swiss Official Accreditation for Timepieces. This certification is specifically awarded to precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Precision Timepiece Testing Center (COSC) test. The exquisite design and high-quality production process of this movement make it unparalleled in accuracy and reliability. The heart of the watch, the balanced swinging component, uses Rolex’s patented blue PARACHROM hairspring, and is made of an alloy that Rolex has exclusively cast. This hairspring is not affected by magnetic fields, and can still perform stably under temperature changes. The shock resistance is 10 times higher than that of traditional hairsprings.
The pictures and information collected by the reporting team in front of the Watch House will be uploaded to the special topics in Basel, so stay tuned.

Simple, Pure, Charismatic And Timeless-iwc (Iwc) New Engineer Automatic Watch Series

All watches of IWC’s new 2013 engineer series, the engineer’s automatic watch made of stainless steel reflects the design tradition of this time-honored watch family, first of all in its beauty The design of the three-pointer that is equal to practicality. The striking holes in the glass bezel are inspired by the design of watch designer Gérald Genta. In 1976 he designed the legendary engineer SL watch, which created five functional drill holes directly on the glass frame. These functional holes were originally used to secure the bezel. Today, these holes, the overall appearance of the case, and the lightning bolt have long become classic images of the engineer’s watch family.

Antimagnetic protection up to 40,000 amps per meter
This engineer’s automatic watch with a water resistance of 12 bar is light in weight, equipped with a thin automatic movement of type 30110, and is unique and convincing with its antimagnetic soft iron inner case. This technical feature is also the origin of the name of the engineer watch family, because engineers work more often in the field of electromagnetic radiation, and in the 1950s belonged to potential customers of the earliest engineer watches of IWC Schaffhausen. To ensure magnetic protection, the case plate, case ring and dial are made of soft iron, which transfers the electromagnetic radiation around the movement. The magnetic protection is as high as 40,000 amps per meter, which is eight times more than the Swiss standard for magnetic protection. As a result, this engineer’s automatic watch is not only elegant but durable.

Subtle and concise style and outstanding features
Engineer Automatic watches are smaller than their 10mm case thickness and 40mm case diameter, making them suitable for thinner wrists. The embedded bezel is slightly curved, making the watch more visually flat. All sides of the case are matte.
The watch has multiple contour lines, most of which are polished, emphasizing the elegance and purity of the timepiece itself. A solid crown guard protects the large, handy screw-in crown. The brilliant inner circle on the dial is closely matched with the rotation radius of the hour hand, and the minute hand is not ill in the middle area. It walks past the simple linear time scale and counts down the time. The central second hand extends into the minute outer circle. Here too, attention is paid to meticulous and concise style and outstanding functions-the date display window at the ‘3 o’clock’ position is no exception. This engineer’s automatic watch has a silver-plated or black dial.

The silver-plated version is equipped with rhodium-plated or rose gold hands and embedded hour markers; the black dial is matched with rhodium-plated hands and embedded hour markers. The watch comes with a solid stainless steel bracelet. On request, suitable rubber pin buckle straps are also available.
The new engineer’s automatic watch is the most classic engineer’s watch in the current series. Elegant, functional and upholding tradition, this watch has always followed the design style of legendary watch designer Jero Zunda from beginning to end.

Lu Han’s Public Romance It Turned Out That His Girlfriend, Guan Xiaotong, Had A Story With Richard Mille!

Yesterday Luhan and Guan Xiaotong opened their love affair on Weibo. It can be said that a big thing happened. Faced with this sudden ‘crime attack’, almost all netizens joined the gossip army, making Weibo paralyzed for a while. Many people’s first reaction may be the same as me. I feel that these two people are the type that can’t hit eight pieces. With all kinds of doubts and shocks, everyone ‘following the vines’, turned up the same models that the two had worn, what couple’s T-shirts, hats, and sneakers, and they could find clues about their ‘underground’. When it comes to watches, I suddenly realized that Richard Mille on Guan Xiaotong’s wrist, which I had stabbed a while ago, turned out to be her couple with Luhan.

   In retrospect, I was a little confused when I noticed Guan Xiaotong and Richard Mill. After all, she hardly wore a watch before that, whether attending the event or in private. Now suddenly wearing a watch and choosing ‘non-entry level’ Richard Mill, the changes are really great. But this doubt was explained very well as she opened a romantic relationship with Luhan yesterday. There is a boyfriend who loves to watch, and because of his wish to wear a couple watch, he either recommended this watch or sent it directly to the beloved female ticket. And when they were attending different events on the same day, they had this Japanese limited edition together. If you think about it, this is Richard Mille with a story.

   The two wore watches that were also limited to Japan, showing their affection silently. Isn’t this one of the things that little lovers do every day? It is estimated that Guan Xiaotong was brought into the ‘watch pit’ with such a watchboy boyfriend? So that the Rolex Daytona was also worn at the recent event.

   For the first time, Richard Mille was worn, followed by Rolex Daytona. It seems that Luhan spent a lot of time with his girlfriend Amway Watch, and Guan Xiaotong once again confirmed the phrase ‘love house and black’. I also found that this rose gold Daytona has been worn by Luhan a few times before, so this watch is most likely given to Guan Xiaotong by Luhan?

   In addition to the rose gold model, Luhan also has a stainless steel Daytona.

   The stainless steel deer was worn on the scene of the show. Now, one person and one Rolex Daytona with Guan Xiaotong, can this be regarded as a token between couples?

   In fact, after public romance, Guan Xiaotong and Lu Han also sent a photo of the two in the circle of friends. In the photo, the two of them had the same watch. However, the picture is relatively blurred, and Luhan’s watch is not clear. Guan Xiaotong’s hand should be Daytona who has been wearing it recently. From a girl who hardly pays attention to watches to girls who have “watch fans keen on” timepieces as soon as they appear on the wrist, Guan Xiaotong, who was brought into the bezel by Luhan, does n’t mention the type, but at least as a Luhan girlfriend, love Showing this interest she is keeping up with Luhan’s rhythm.

   In recent years, Luhan’s career has been flourishing, and his enthusiasm for loving watches and the price of buying watches have become higher and higher. He used to have Panerai and Hublot watches, but now, Richard Mille, Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe occupy more of his wrists. Now that I have talked about Luhan, let me give you a watch from the popular science in the past year (because the number is too large and the pictures are not high-definition, I wo n’t talk about it for now, after all, Luhan really bought … too .. Many … maybe three days and three nights.
   Luhan’s favorite now is of course Richard Mille. The Richard Mille collection collected by Luhan is really outrageous.

   The price of the Richard Mille RM35-01 watch is about 670,000. Luhan sometimes exchanges red and black straps.

   The price of this white model of RM 055 model is also about 670,000. The name of the watch of this series comes from American professional golfer Bubba Watson. It is said that Bubba Watson himself is wearing it to participate in the PGA Tour (English: PGA Tour, PGA Tour for short, is a collective name for a series of professional golf in the United States). Zhang Jike and Pan Weibo also wore the same paragraph.

   Looking at Richard Mill’s classic watches for a long time, Richard Mill’s RM27-02 in Luhan will make people look bright. The cool NTPT carbon fiber case and the bright orange strap are stylish and dynamic on Luhan’s hands. Its price is also expensive, the watch is 4.8 million.

   Richard Mille’s extraordinary follow-up brown ceramic is an Asian limited edition. If you see him wearing it in the MV, you will know how much Luhan likes this watch. The price of this one is about 1 million.

   As I saw last time, Luhan had at least 7 Richard Mills. But now to refresh the data, Richard Mill of Luhan has at least 9 yuan.

   Aside from Richard Mille’s favorite, Audemars Piguet should now rank second in Luhan’s favorite watch brand. The number of Audemars Piguet watches is no less than Richard Mill’s (of course, the reason why the price will affect the number of hands) is not excluded. Those who have appeared in his hands and Ins recently are these …

   Some time ago, Luhan also wore a Rolex Greenwich II watch.

   The number of Luhan’s watches can really count people dizzy … Some fans have estimated that Luhan has spent at least 20 million dollars on watches. No wonder everyone calls him ‘wearing luxury homes.’ Man on hands. ‘ In terms of his hobbies, Luhan really did his best. In the past, Li Chen asked him, ‘Football and girlfriend, who do you choose?’ Lu Han said he would ‘play football with his girlfriend.’ The rumors that he and Guan Xiaotong played in Hongkou yesterday did not know the truth, but the purchase of a watch with his girlfriend has become a reality.

Blue Tannins, A Tribute To Classics-omega Releases The New Ironmaster Zhizhen Observatory

In 1957, OMEGA’s first Ironmaster watch came out. With its stable structure and excellent anti-magnetic performance, it met the needs of people at that time. Today, Omega draws inspiration from tannins and releases the new Ironmaster Zhizheng Observatory, paying tribute to that glorious industrial history.

  Omega applies tannin elements to the new Ironmaster Zhizheng Observatory, creating a ‘blue tannin’ textured dial. The dial is frosted, and the hours and hands are covered with a light gray Super-LumiNova luminous coating. The watch is fitted with a beige ‘lollipop’ central seconds hand and is printed with the classic ‘Railmaster’ logo. The unique color scheme is reminiscent of the stitching at the stitching of jeans.

  The watch is equipped with a blue tannin NATO military strap, and the inside of the strap and the strap buckle are made of brown leather. The watch is also available in stainless steel bracelet.

  The new Ironmaster watches follow the classic look while incorporating modern design elements. The 40 mm stainless steel case has a symmetrical design and is sanded vertically. The case has a conical crown on one side. The back of the case is designed with a corrugated edge and the unique Naiad lock technology ensures that the engraved lettering on the back remains neat and elegant.

  Over 60 years, Omega has always been one of the industry pioneers in the field of watch antimagnetic innovation. The new Ironmaster watch is equipped with the 8806-Zhenzhen Observatory movement, which is equivalent to 15 times the magnetic field strength of the original watch. Every Omega Chronometer is certified to the highest industry standards approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) and can withstand strong magnetic fields of up to 15,000 Gauss.

Who Says Tape Can Only Move-omega Ocean Universe Dive Watch

At the end of May, the weather was very hot, so the editors of our watch family thought that we should recommend several diving watches for everyone. Before recommending, we decided to make one on our Weibo. Voting means that each editor recommends a diving watch. Which watch likes the most people? Voting has begun. I thought that even if the watch I recommend is not the first, it must be the second. Soon the voting is over. I am glad to see the voting results. Before I saw it, I was still full of confidence, but when I saw it, I almost fainted. This was not because of excitement, but because there was no candidate for the watch I recommended. I At that time, I couldn’t figure out. Why is there such a ‘Gao Fu Shuai’ with a deep background, outstanding appearance and delicate heart? After thinking about it, we still don’t know much about it, so I decided to talk about this watch I recommend today: the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean.
Its background is not simple

 The Omega Seamaster series of Ocean Universe watches was actually born as early as 2005. At that time, I remember that the big watch trend had just risen. Its birth not only conformed to that trend, but also the design style of the appearance can be said to have the old state of the hippocampus. Sweeping away, the most important thing is that its main model’s bezel also uses extremely ‘irritating’ orange. It is precisely because of this color that it became the most ‘wary’ watch of the year. Many people at the time The first sentence to enter the watch store is, I want an orange ring.

 Some people may ask, Omega has not always put fashion first, why did it choose such a ‘tide’ and jumping color? Because orange is the color of the reefs in the Capri Sea, this watch does not forget to highlight this color through the details of the stitching on the strap.

 Although the appearance of this watch is outstanding, the movement still uses the old hippocampus movement, which is regrettable. But in 2011, on the picturesque island of Capri in Italy, Omega released a fully upgraded seahorse series marine universe watch, the upgraded marine universe family, fully equipped with the revolutionary Omega-produced 85 series coaxial Movement or newly launched 9300 chronograph coaxial movement. We will say today that this watch is equipped with an 8500 movement.
Bezel is the key
Although the voting results were cruel, I definitely recommend this watch for good reasons. Before I talk about this watch, let’s take a brief look at the Ocean Universe family of the hippocampus series. At present, the family has three product lines, namely the regular product line, the timing product line and the large size product line. The size of the regular product line is 42 mm for men and 37.5 mm for women; the men’s chronograph and large models are 45.5 mm. The reason I recommend a 42mm watch is because it fits most Asians.

 Some people may ask, since you said that the orange circle is the most susceptible, why not recommend the orange model. And this is the key point I want to say. There are currently 5 types of bezels in the Ocean Universe family: blue ceramic Liquidmetal alloy bezels, orange matte aluminum bezels, black or white ceramics and inlays. Drill bezel. Since the matching ratio of orange ceramics has not yet been developed (should soon be), when other new ocean universes are upgraded to ceramic bezels, only the orange ring models will still be aluminum bezels. Since they are not ceramics, they will be There may be scratches or discoloration, and the black ceramic bezel of this watch can give you no worries.

 Although it is still unclear whether the common ceramic bezel also uses Liquidmetal’s processing method (let the metal flow into the pre-engraved ceramic word ring in a liquid form), it is certain that the processing method is also unusual. Interested friends can watch the video above.

 In terms of function, if you think this watch is a good product, then you are very wrong. This marine universe is a very professional diving watch with a waterproof depth of 600 meters, although you may not Dive to that depth, but it is enough to ensure that you will not have any worries in daily water activities. If you really want to go diving one day, its one-way rotating bezel and the 10-point helium exhaust valve will also Get everything for you.

 In order to make you feel like a fish in the sea, the hour scale on this dial is coated with a white luminous coating, which, like the polished arched rhodium-plated hour and second hands, emits blue light in a dark environment. The dots on the minute hand and diving bezel glow green. This feature makes it easy to read the time with one glance when diving.
Movement is the most important

 2007 was a very important year for Omega. In this year, Omega released two exclusive self-made double barrels, coaxial escapement movements-8500 and 8501. These two new movements are composed of 202 parts, with a diameter of 28 mm. They have also won the COSC (Swiss Official Observatory Certification) precision timepieces. The only difference between them is that the automatic tourbillon and balance wheel splint of the 8501 movement are made of 18K red gold and assembled in a precious metal case. Today this marine universe is an all-steel model, so it is equipped with an 8500 movement.

 In appearance, the main substrate of the 8500 movement is made of rhodium. The screws, barrels and balance wheels inside the movement are all black-treated. Compared with the more common high-temperature firing blue steel materials, DLC and The special way of adding carbon-fiber-like materials to brass presents the unusual modern feel of matte. The splint and autotop are not polished with the usual Geneva stripes, but with innovative radial textures. They have a typical Arabic-style line design. In addition to the distinctive red lettering, the edges of the splint are also beautifully chamfered.

 Of course, this movement is naturally equipped with the patented coaxial escapement technology that Omega prides itself on, and is equipped with a fine spring mechanism without balance spring and balance screw, which can really be said to be armed to the teeth. This ensures that accurate and reliable timing can be maintained during long periods of operation. In addition, the movement’s vibration frequency is very individual, which is 25,200 times an hour. In addition, the movement is equipped with two tandem barrels that can strengthen the power source, which is driven by an automatic top-of-the-line winding. In addition to the design of the dual barrel, which provides greater stability, it also ensures that it has a 60-hour power reserve.

 The most important thing is that the Omega 8500 movement carried by the latest Ocean Universe family has been upgraded on the basis of the original. It is equipped with a Si 14 silicon spring. More accurate and reliable, Omega has provided this watch with up to 4 years of after-sales service.
to sum up

 It is understandable that no one chose this watch before upgrading it, but it is so unreasonable to upgrade to such a powerful level that no one has chosen it yet. You can question my taste, but you still have to refer to the taste of 007. This is nothing more than turning that ‘SkyFall’ stainless steel bracelet into a more comfortable and lightweight rubber stitching strap.

With a 41 mm diameter case after the 2012 case size reform, the ultra-thin perpetual calendar machine developed from the 2120 movement is built in. Core 5134. In addition to the perpetual calendar function, this movement also has an accurate romantic moon phase, as well as a week number indication function for 52 weeks throughout the year. Even so complicated, the watch still has a 40-hour power reserve.
Vacheron Constantin-Master of Arts Legend Decoration

2016 SIHH Vacheron Constantin Fabuleux Ornements

    Vacheron Constantin’s master series of art is not only a craftsmanship of the fusion of brand mechanical art and different cultures, but also the pinnacle of superb craftsmanship. In the Master of Arts series, there is a very unique branch-Fabuleux Ornements, which is also translated as ‘legend decoration’. The branch launched the first set of ‘decorative’ watches in SIHH in 2014, mainly using a large number of outstanding decorative techniques including large fire enamel, gem setting, engraving, etc., plus precious materials such as mother-of-pearl, diamonds, precious metals, gems, Pearls, etc., show the charm of four different cultural arts Ottoman architecture, Chinese embroidery, Indian manuscripts and French lace.

2014 SIHH Vacheron Constantin Fabuleux Ornements Watch

    In 2016, Vacheron Constantin will again launch the ‘Legendary Decoration’ watch series, which also focuses on these four cultures and arts, and refurbish them. Each theme adds unused presentation methods to make it beautiful. Artistic charm. Each watch is limited to 20 pieces and is only available at Vacheron Constantin boutiques.
Piaget-a new journey of MEMS
    In 2014, Piaget launched the 900P, the world’s thinnest mechanical watch, and innovatively proposed an unprecedented ultra-thin mechanical architecture, thus becoming one of the most popular watches of the year. I thought that such a legend would add new features, or use creative art for re-creation. I did not expect that in 2016 SIHH, Piaget will unexpectedly exhibit a mechanical and electrical watch 700P. The launch of this watch is to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first self-made quartz movement 7P launched in 1976, and the specially produced micro-electromechanical masterpiece is limited to 118 pieces.

    The special feature of this watch is that although it uses a mechanical structure, its core oscillation system uses electronic control technology. This form, like Seiko’s Spring Drive, outputs energy from the barrel for gear transmission, and has a coil structure for power generation, which provides a tiny amount of electricity to the quartz oscillator. The quartz oscillator has a 32768Hz frequency. This regular vibration frequency is then converted into a gear transmission like a quartz movement, and finally achieves travel time. Its advantage lies in the use of quartz oscillators, which are extremely accurate, while retaining the traditional meaning of traditional watchmaking processes and mechanical watches represented by mechanical manufacturing.
Jaeger-LeCoultre-Reverso 85 years and time
    In 1931, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched the Reverso series watch specially designed for the polo game. No one thought that the watch body flip structure, which was only designed to protect the watch mirror, has become a brand benchmark product today. It has become a classic. Today, 85 years later, the Reverso series has gradually become a model for square watches, not only with complex functions, but also elegant appearance. Both men’s watches and women’s watches have become the darlings of the market.

    In the upcoming SIHH, Jaeger-LeCoultre will exhibit three new Reverso series dual time zone watches (and two classic models), all of which are double-sided disc designs, that is, a movement with two time display systems. Among the three watches, one is a watch with a 24-hour display on the front, one is an ordinary small three-pin model on the front, and one is a watch with an annual calendar and moon phases on the front.
Panerai-Radiomir 1940 PAM655

 
    Panerai was once regarded as the myth of watchmaking. It is the only brand that uses other movement watches to pay more than its own movement watches. Due to the interesting dial and various straps, it has become the most rewarding playfulness. High-end luxury brand. In the upcoming SIHH of 2016, Panerai will launch a Radiomir 1940 series watch with white dial and Arabic numerals, equipped with its own self-winding movement P4000, with 3 days power.
IWC-Dafei and Aquatimer take off

 
    Earlier, IWC introduced a special new product release rule, which is to release new products year by year according to the series. 2012 is the year of the pilot, the main pilot watch, 2013 is the year of the engineer, the engineer’s watch is promoted, and the 2014 is the Aquatimer diving watch. In the year, the main push for diving watches, 2015 is the Portuguese year, the main Portuguese series. However, since the Portofino mid-size watch was launched in the second half of 2014, this pattern has become a bit chaotic. Although the Portuguese series was the main product last year, the Portofino mid-size watches are not missing. This year should be the year of the pilot, but Aquatimer is still the main product.

    At this year’s SIHH, IWC will exhibit a variety of pilot series watches, including a 55mm ultra-large small three-hand pilot watch, which has already become the focus of public opinion, just to see its true colors. At the same time, there are multiple pilot watches of different sizes and functions, pending release. The new diving watch Aquetimer, launched in 2014, will also have new works on display this year.
Cartier-6 new works

 

    In recent years, the growth rate of Cartier’s high-end watches and jewellery watches is amazing. Among the high-end watch brands compared with the same period of last year, few new works are produced every year like Cartier, and the number is still quite large. In 2016, Cartier will lead 6 new works to appear at SIHH. Of course, this is just a preview before the show. It is estimated that when it is launched, Cartier will have more exciting works presented.
Van Cleef & Arpels-still poetic

 
    Since the birth of Van Cleef & Arpels’s poetic complex series, with its outstanding design and clever time indication, it has achieved wonderful and beautiful time presentation again and again. So far, we still remember those poetic watches full of romantic feelings, such as the bridge of poetic lovers, a day in Paris and so on. During this year’s SIHH watch exhibition, Van Cleef & Arpels will once again exert its infinite creative design skills, put time in the cloud, and let the swallows and butterflies indicate the time for us. With an oval gear inside, the three butterflies hidden inside the watch will indicate the minutes in their respective areas, and by activating the button at 8 o’clock, all three butterflies can fly on the dial. After a few seconds it will be hidden under the clouds again, showing the correct time. The swallow at the bottom indicates the hour through its wings, and jumps back to the dot every 12 hours to indicate the hour again.
Montblanc-Continue the Leading Edge

 
    Since Montblanc launched the Perpetual Calendar watch in 2014, the exploration of the middle-class circle of complex-function watches has become a hot spot. After that, Montblanc seems to have found a new development path. In the past two years, it has continued to try in this regard, but A lot of gains. At this year’s SIHH, Montblanc will continue this leading edge and will display a perpetual calendar chronograph watch based on the Selite movement. The price of steel is only a little over 10,000 dollars, or it will become the most accessible super-complex watch. In addition, Montblanc will also introduce the Timewalker tourbillon chronograph and paperback calendar watch.
Baume & Mercier-Clayton Calendar

    Baume & Mercier is the only brand under the Richemont Group to enter the mid-range market. Although its quality is very good, for a long time, it has not been equipped with a main movement and complex functions using a basic movement plus function modules. The upper circle of the market, perhaps this is its positioning. This year’s SIHH, Baume & Mercier will exhibit a Crichton series annual calendar chronograph watch with moon phase function, which can also be regarded as a high-level complex function watch, the movement changed from 7750.
Independent watch brand

Henry Moser Swiss Apl Watch

Perpetual calendar concept by Henry Moser

Parmigiani Tonda 1950 Chronograph

MB & F LM101

HYT H2 watch

    So far, only a few independent watch brands have revealed new products to be exhibited this year, including Parmigiani, Henry Moser, MB & F, HYT, etc. Many other brands still do not disclose new SIHH products.

Ten Years Of Working History Of Chinese Watchmaker Cao Weifeng

Cao Weifeng, 36 years old, senior engineer. Graduated from Tianjin University with a master’s degree, majoring in instrumentation. In July 2003, he joined the technical center of Tianjin Seagull Watch Group Co., Ltd. and engaged in the research and development of mechanical watch movements for 11 years. At the time, he was the director of the second room of high-end movement creation, and now works in a postdoctoral workstation. The main research direction is the research of high-end complex tourbillon movements and the application of new materials. Designed and developed products have obtained 6 national invention patents and applied for 3 PCT international patents. One of them (the planetary dual tourbillon mechanism) was successively authorized by the Japanese and German Patent Offices in early 2014. In 2014, he was appraised as ‘China Watch Master’ by China Watch Association. Since 2009, he has regularly published articles in the technical columns of watch professional magazines such as ‘Watches’, ‘Timepieces’, ‘Fashion Time’ and ‘Gossamer Watches’.
   Since entering the Gull Watch Factory in 2003, I have been ignorant of what I was doing at the beginning. After years of accumulation, the quantity has changed to the qualitative change. I have achieved ten years of satisfactory results, which are divided into three stages: 1. The learning stage from 2003 to 2004; 2. The growth stage from 2005 to 2008; 3. The maturity stage from 2009 to 2013.
Learning phase
   My undergraduate major is automation, and I have a very limited mechanical knowledge. There is only one point that I consider to be my own advantage. I have loved machinery since I was a child. Especially my mother is an old employee of the Seagull Watch Factory. I am very impressed with the watch. On July 1, 2003, the party’s birthday (feeling very memorable), I entered the Seagull Watch Factory. Then I was arranged to enter the workshop internship experience. This is a required course for in-depth production to become a research and development technician. Through this course, you can understand how each part of the mechanical watch movement is made, and finally how to assemble it into a qualified one. Movement. The duration of this course is not very long. For me to fully understand and integrate all the processes, processing techniques and production experience of watchmaking, I need to consciously walk into the workshop to learn more in the process of developing movements in the future. More knowledgeable, especially with teachers who have technical skills.
   After the internship, I officially entered the technical center and started product development. I am honored to follow my master, Zhou Wenxia, ​​the deputy chief engineer of the Technology Center, to learn the design and development of mechanical watch movements. Zhou Gong graduated from Tianjin University in the early years, majoring in timekeeping (now merged into Jingyi College), and his business ability is quite outstanding. At the same time, there are several senior engineers of the older generation who have been enthusiastic about product research and development, although they have retired for many years. They have taught me very rich knowledge of professional movement design theory and parts manufacturing experience. Every senior is like a treasure house that contains endless wealth that I endure, and I have full respect for them. They not only give me knowledge and experience, but also a more important attitude of persistence and persistence in technology, and a life-long attitude to fight for my own ideas, which makes me feel much benefit.
   At this stage, I basically focus on learning. Learning includes two aspects: self-study and masters’ learning. I deeply understand that the understanding of mechanical watches is superficial, so I have found the basic knowledge of university machinery related books to make up for my knowledge reserve. Cooperate with the master to do the movement design project, although it is all one of them, but the accumulation of bits and pieces is what you have to learn. If you encounter something you do n’t understand, ask the teachers, the seniors in design and development, and the senior technicians in processing.

Cao Weifeng’s first tourbillon product was ST8001
growing phase
   After nearly two years of working practice, especially under the guidance of Zhou Gong and your seniors, I have basically mastered the design process and skills of the movement. At the beginning of 2005, under the instruction of the master, I started to do design tasks independently. Although these projects for me don’t need much complicated design, no matter how simple, they also need the complete design process. I think this is the only way to sharpen myself. We must not slack off because of simplicity. We must not be so far-reaching. We must be down-to-earth. This is what I always insist on.

The second tourbillon product ST8006 designed by Cao Weifeng
   Since the second half of 2005, I have participated in the research and development of the coaxial tourbillon, the replacement product of the Seagull core technology tourbillon. This is my first full exposure to the research and development of tourbillon technology. Although I was only responsible for drawing the drawings at that time, because of my enthusiasm for the technology and a strong thirst for knowledge, I took the tourbillon from the theoretical calculation to the confirmation of the project plan. The R & D process is familiar.

Cao Weifeng’s tourbillon product ST8260
   In 2006, I participated in the research and development of the Seagull double tourbillon product. This is the first time that Seagull has developed a complex tourbillon product, which is relatively difficult. Three trial trials were made before and after, and the finished product was not successfully made until 2007. In 2008, Seagull launched a double tourbillon mechanical watch at the Basel International Watch Fair in Switzerland, which was widely praised. It was only a crisis in this exhibition. The Swiss watchmaker raised a patent question on the core technology of the Seagull double tourbillon, and believed that there was suspected infringement. After careful review by the experts of the referee committee, the conclusion of non-infringement was finally obtained, and Seagull won this historic lawsuit.

Then, I experienced three opportunities to enrich my learning:
1. From April 2008 to October 2010, I studied for a master’s degree at Tianjin University, majoring in instrumentation engineering, and finally completed my studies with a graduation thesis entitled ‘Analysis and Improvement of Tourbillon Mechanical Watches’. The course of study in the past two years has laid a solid theoretical foundation for me, allowing me to learn a lot of cutting-edge scientific and technological knowledge today;
2. From July to August 2008, I participated in the training of watch knowledge for all technical staff of the Seagull by the teachers of the Xi’an Clock and Watch Institute. Through this very systematic training, I familiarized myself with the basic theory, materials, standards, etc. of the watch;
3. From the second half of 2009 to the first half of 2010, I was selected to participate in the ‘Innovative Engineer Training Course’ organized by the Tianjin Science and Technology Commission and held by Hebei University of Technology. The training for nearly a year has taught me the ‘Invention Problem Solving Theory’ that is very popular in the world and has not started in China. This theory made me understand that the original innovation requires strong theoretical support. This training has played a vital role in achieving many innovations in the future.
   At this stage, my question is, what is innovation? How to be innovative? How can we really break through the patent barriers of the watch kingdom Switzerland? The answer I got is that the most important thing is to consolidate my knowledge reserve, learn professional knowledge in a down-to-earth manner, and further study hard to learn more knowledge in this field and non-field knowledge, and broaden my horizons.
Maturity stage
   In 2009, I entered the second high-end movement creation room. As the director, I led my team to carry out project research and development. The main research direction is the research and development of high-end complex tourbillon movements and the application of new materials. In 2010, ‘Seagull’ moved into the newly-built industrial park. In the same year, my team and I were transferred to the newly established postdoctoral research station. Among the key projects we undertake are the following (the research and development goals of these projects are set to improve the accuracy of the watch’s travel time, and they are all very challenging, which is my favorite): research and development of advanced Carrier balance spring system The balance spring system is equivalent to the ‘heart’ of a watch. The cardless structure overcomes the disadvantages of the original cardholder structure and can further improve the movement accuracy of the movement. This project started research and development in 2009. It belongs to the basic research of mechanical watches. It requires precise theoretical calculations and absolute rationality of the structure. A slight error will cause failure. This technology has been authorized by the national utility model patent. The patent name is the adjustable balance of the watch. The patent number is CN200920250256.

Developed the ST8550 planetary double tourbillon mechanical watch movement
   This project started planning in 2010. The core technology has been authorized by the national invention patent. The patent name is a tourbillon mechanical watch with both rotation and revolution. Patent number: CN200910067648. Its technical feature is that two tourbillons are placed on a rotatable platform, both rotating at a speed of 1 minute / week, and revolving at a speed of 12 hours / week under the drive of a turntable. The movement trajectory of the speed governing mechanism inside the tourbillon is more complicated, and combined with the technical advantage of the average error of the double tourbillon, the time accuracy of this watch can be improved. This technology obtained Japanese patent authorization in 2014-patent number JP2011544767, and in the same year also obtained German patent authorization-patent number DE112009000624T5.
Developed the ST8520 dual-axis three-dimensional rotating tourbillon mechanical watch movement
    In March 2013, the prototype of the first dual-axis three-dimensional rotary tourbillon mechanical watch movement was successfully manufactured. Its technical characteristics are: the tourbillon is upgraded from plane rotation to three-dimensional rotation, and the movement trajectory becomes more complicated, which can better reduce the position error caused by the gravity of the earth and improve the accuracy of the watch’s travel time. This technology was authorized by the National Invention Patent in December 2013. The patent name: a dual-axis tourbillon mechanism for a mechanical watch. Patent number: CN201110142886. Based on my own design ideas, I gave it a name: ‘Qiyi 1’.

‘Qiyi No. 1’ Tourbillon mechanical watch
Developed the ST8530 three-axis three-dimensional rotary tourbillon mechanical watch movement
   A year later, a prototype of the first three-axis three-dimensional rotary tourbillon mechanical watch movement was successfully produced in March 2014. Its technical characteristics are: the movement trajectory of the tourbillon changes from a two-dimensional cylindrical three-dimensional rotation to a three-dimensional spherical three-dimensional rotation. The complexity of the trajectory of the speed regulation system will be further increased, and the timing accuracy of the watch will be further improved.

‘Qingyi 2’ tourbillon mechanical watch
Concluding remarks: As a seagull person for ten years, I have understood the technical connotation of mechanical watches and the endless space for expansion from shallow to deep, which made me from the boring beginning to the intoxication and obsession later, from my job to hobbies, and deeply understand The endless joy that comes from studying technology and spreading my skills. I think now that we have chosen this industry, we must resolutely and resolutely follow this path. I will continue to work hard and work hard to create better results.
to sum up:

The Breguet Minute Repeater Tourbillon Watch Won The ‘valor Relojero’ Award In The ‘tiempo De Relojes’ Magazine

In the traditional selection event held before the closing of the International Salon of Fine Watchmaking in Mexico this year, the Breguet series of three-question timepiece tourbillon won the international expert jury The group was favored and won the ‘Valor Relojero’ award of ‘Tiempo de Relojes’ magazine.

   The watch was first introduced by Breguet during this year’s Baselworld. The International Salon of High Watches is organized by Carlos Alonso, the publisher and editor of the ‘Tiempo de Relojes’ magazine. It has been the ninth edition since 2006.
