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.

Sihh 2016 Before The Show-every Good Preview

The 26th Geneva High-end Watch Salon (SIHH) is coming. As 9 new watchmaking brands are added this year, it will certainly be more exciting. Some people say that the sudden addition of nine independent watch brands is to restore the market’s confidence in Swiss fine watchmaking. After all, the good news of the Swiss watchmaking industry has not been heard for a long time; others say that it is a new round Layout, the group wants to join hands with the highest independent watchmaker in Switzerland. But no matter what, as ordinary watch fans, 9 creative watchmaking brands join SIHH, I think there will be many surprises this year.
Lange-1815 Tourbillon Limited Edition

Lange 1815 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst

    As one of Richemont’s top precision watch manufacturers, each year Lange’s new products always attract the attention of the most professional. This year’s SIHH, it is known that Lange will exhibit a limited edition of the 1815 Tourbillon watch, the full name is ‘1815 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst’, of which ‘Handwerkskunst’ is the name of the special watch since 2011, Grid has continued to use the advanced and sophisticated series ‘Pour le Metier’ with the same meaning.

All Langer Handwerkskunst watches so far

   The 1815 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst watch is limited to 30 pieces. Its tourbillon uses two patented structures to allow the tourbillon to stop seconds and return to zero. This outstanding technology is unique to Lange. In addition, this watch was released at the end of 2015 as a tribute to the 200th anniversary of the founder of Lange and the pioneer of German fine watchmaking, Adolf Lange. It is made of 18K gold and equipped with sandblasting by Tremblage engraving. Black rhodium-plated 18K rose gold dial.
Audemars Piguet-Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar 18K Gold Edition
    Perpetual calendar has always been Audemars Piguet’s strength. Before the brand was founded, founder Jules Louis Audemars has produced a perpetual calendar. In the early 20th century, Audemars Piguet’s perpetual calendar pocket watches were enriched. Displayed perpetual calendar watch series, launched the world’s thinnest self-winding perpetual calendar watch with calibre 2120 in 1978. Since then, Audemars Piguet has applied the perpetual calendar to its major series. In 1984, the first Royal Oak perpetual calendar designed by Jacqueline Dimier. The watch came out. Of the 279 originally released, 229 were made of gold. In 2015, the 140th anniversary of the brand’s founding, Audemars Piguet launched 4 (two stainless steel, two rose gold) ultra-thin perpetual calendar watches.

    In 2016, Audemars Piguet returned to the original perpetual calendar design and launched an ultra-thin perpetual calendar watch made of 18K yellow gold. 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 first tourbillon product designed by Cao Weifeng ST8003

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.

Cao Weifeng’s tourbillon product ST8080
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.

Seagull tourbillon products with cardless balance and hairspring system ST8260W

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.

Kunlun Innovative Titanium Bridge Tourbillon Watch

The new titanium bridge tourbillon watch launched in 2011 will be decorated with 689 diamonds totaling 8.64ct. The light emitted by beautiful diamonds will shine on the long hanging on the crisscross bracket Shaped movement, creating a singular effect like the red gold wine barrel-shaped case floating in the air. The flying tourbillon without an upper bridge also makes the tourbillon fly on the movement.
With a pitiful modern look, the titanium bridge watch equipped with the Kunlun long movement was first launched in 2009, making a sensation. Then the 2010 version also reached another peak in Kunlun’s watchmaking achievements due to its flying tourbillon and titanium case. Now in 2011, the new titanium bridge tourbillon watch is about to debut on the stage of HauteHorlogerie and Haute Joaillerie. Decorated with no less than 689 carefully cut cases weighing 8.64ct diamonds, 18K red gold surface and ring, creating a visual effect like a flashing river, exposing the superb watchmaking process.

Materials from the future
The CO 022 long movement of the titanium bridge tourbillon watch is the brainchild of the brand’s team to design, develop and produce it. Without the upper bridge, the flying tourbillon suspended above the movement, the vibration frequency of its escapement can reach 21,600 times per hour. This manually wound mechanical movement provides a 72-hour power reserve.
The CO 022 movement is embedded in the mainboard and bridge made of ARCAP. The inner layer of the outer ring is coated with a golden coating, which is definitely a perfect example of aesthetics and function. This high-tech alloy mixed with copper and nickel has anti-magnetic, Corrosion resistance and allow more complex processing. This high-tech material is also compatible with various traditional decoration processes, such as satin finishing and chamfering, and it forms a detailed and beautiful contrast with the dual spring winder treated with sun polish.
Spectacular visual effects
All movement structures are inlaid on Kunlun’s original long titanium bridge board: the crisscross brackets tightly fix the movement in the center of the case. Its golden-processed ARCAP bridge board creates a visual effect without weight.
The watch has a barrel-shaped case of 42.5 x 52.3 mm and is water-resistant to 30 meters.

2019 Baselworld Rolex Oyster Perpetual Greenwich Ii Watch

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Greenwich Type II is designed to display the time in two different time zones and is the ideal watch for travelers around the world.

Urban Essential Watch

   Rolex launched the new Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II watch with a two-way rotating outer ring and a blue and black two-color Cerachrom 24-hour scale ceramic word ring. The combination of oystersteel material and commemorative strap echoes the red and blue two-color Cerachrom ceramic word ring model launched in 2018. The sides of the case and lugs reflect a subtle sheen, making the outline of the 40 mm Oyster case more prominent and more attractive.

The new model is equipped with the 3285 movement with leading watchmaking technology. The Oyster Perpetual Greenwich II was equipped with this movement for the first time in 2018.

Like all Rolex watches, the new Greenwich II has been certified by the Super Observatory Precision Timepiece, guaranteeing that the watch will perform at its best when worn.

The only tool with multiple time zones

   The Greenwich was first introduced to help professional pilots assist with watches during long flights. This watch has gradually become the watch of choice for travellers. Over the years, the outer ring of the watch has appeared in a variety of colors and combinations. Whether single-color or two-color, the design of the watch is unique and highly recognizable.

   With traditional hour, minute and second hands, 24-hour hand with triangular arrows, two-way rotating outer ring and Cerachrom 24-hour scale ceramic word ring, the Greenwich II can display the time in two time zones at the same time: both the time at the location and the time at the departure place can be read at the same time You can also read the local time and the third time zone time. The calendar display at 3 o’clock is synchronized with the departure time.

High-tech ceramics

   Rolex has repeatedly pioneered the development of ceramic technology. With its top technology, Rolex has developed a one-piece ceramic outer ring and ceramic word ring. This innovative material not only resists corrosion and scratches, it does not fade even when exposed to ultraviolet light. After years of intensive R & D, Rolex has developed a unique set of professional knowledge and innovative high-tech equipment and manufacturing processes, so it can completely produce ceramic components. In 2013, the brand’s Greenwich II was equipped with a single blue-and-black dual-color ceramic word ring developed by Rolex, which was an important turning point in the use of ceramics by the watch industry.

   The new Greenwich II is paired with a blue and black two-color Cerachrom 24-hour graduated ceramic word ring. The die-cast numbers and scales are plated with platinum using PVD (PhysicalVapourDeposition) coating technology. The tooth edges of the outer ring make it easier for the wearer to grasp and rotate the outer ring.

Oyster case waterproof symbol

   The Greenwich Type II Oyster case is guaranteed to be water-resistant to 100 meters (330 feet) and is a solid example of reliability. The middle case is made of a solid piece of oystersteel and is difficult to corrode.

   Rolex watchmakers use the brand’s exclusive tools to tighten the fine pitted bottom cover to seal the case, so only Rolex watchmakers can access the movement. The winding crown is equipped with a triple lock triple waterproof system, which is firmly screwed to the case. The crown shoulders are integrated into the middle case to protect the winding crown. The mirror is made of sapphire and is not easy to scratch. A small window convex lens at 3 o’clock makes it easy to read the calendar. The Greenwich II waterproof oyster case gives the highest precision movement protection.

Type 3285 permanent magnet

   The new Greenwich II is equipped with a 3285 movement, a new generation of movements developed and manufactured by Rolex. The self-winding movement is equipped with a number of patents, fully reflecting Rolex’s innovative technology and cutting-edge watchmaking technology, and has been further improved in terms of precision and reliability, power reserve, anti-seismic and anti-magnetic, and convenient use. Perfection.

   The 3285 movement is equipped with Rolex’s patented Chronergy escapement. The new escapement is made of nickel-phosphorus, which is not only efficient and reliable, but also immune to magnetic interference. The movement is equipped with Rolex’s patent-optimized blue Parachrom hairspring, which is made of a unique paramagnetic alloy cast by Rolex. Its shock resistance is ten times higher than that of a traditional hairspring. The blue Parachrom hairspring is equipped with a Rolex end ring to ensure that the hairspring can maintain regularity in any position. The balance spring component of the movement is equipped with a high-performance Paraflex cushioning device designed and patented by Rolex to improve the shock resistance of the movement.

   The 3285 movement is equipped with a permanent automatic winding component, and the movement is wound by a permanent rotor. The structure of the barrel and the excellent efficiency of the escapement increase the power reserve of the 3285 movement to about 70 hours.

Certificate of Excellence in Observatory Precision Timepieces

   Like all Rolex watches, the Greenwich II has been certified by Rolex in 2015. This unique title proves that the watch has successfully passed a series of tests by Rolex Labs and goes beyond the conventions and standards of watchmaking. The watch is tested only after it has been assembled to ensure that when it is worn, it can excel in all aspects of precision, power reserve, water resistance and automatic winding. The Rolex Super Chronometer precision timepiece, which is tested after the movement is installed in the case, has an average error of less than two seconds per day, which is more than twice as accurate as the average observatory-certified precision timepiece.

   The green seal is the symbol of the superb chronometer. Every Rolex watch comes with this seal and is backed by a global five-year warranty.

Memorial strap and oyster safety clasp

   This Greenwich II is paired with a commemorative strap. The five-grid commemorative bracelet is a flexible and comfortable watch, which was specially designed by Rolex for the Oyster Perpetual Datejust in 1945.

   The new matching commemorative strap is equipped with a Rolex-designed and patented Oyster safety clasp to prevent accidental opening of the clasp. The strap is also equipped with an easy-to-adjust chain link developed by the brand, allowing the wearer to easily extend the strap by about 5 mm, making it more comfortable to wear.

   Concealed ear caps ensure a seamless visual effect between the strap and case.
