Baobo Launched The New Villeret Series Watch

The first dual time zone watch of Blancpain is designed from the perspective of the user to design smooth operation. Just turn the crown a few times to complete all quick adjustments: date, time zone and calibration time. Put the crown on the crown, you can choose quick date adjustment or half time zone adjustment. As the user adjusts the second time zone time, the system will also automatically change the standard time zone time.

In the process of developing the Calibre 5254DF movement, the Precious Platinum Workshop introduced easy-to-use half-time zone performance, which strongly demonstrated the originality of the precious platinum watchmaking process. This new Basel exhibition is equipped with a self-winding movement, consisting of 321 parts, with a 72-hour power reserve. The standard time display is placed at twelve o’clock; the half-time zone and seconds are at the center of the surface; the day / night hand of standard time is located at nine o’clock; the date jumping with the second time zone is displayed at six o’clock; The quick date (D) or time zone (T) hands are placed at four o’clock. This new work not only reflects the noble spirit of innovation of Bao platinum, but also will become an important member of the brand’s movement revolution launched in 2006.
The Villeret Demi-Fuseau Horaire watch is designed in the shape of a rose gold semi-hunting watch, and its sapphire crystal case back shows the beauty of the elegant movement of the movement and Guilloche trim. It has a delicately carved opal faceplate, which is more beautiful with the rose gold hour markers. Finally, the strap is lined with Alvazel calfskin to perfectly interpret the new masterpiece.

Master Crafts Of Filigree Craftsmanship Ronde Louis Cartier Watch

Born in Cartier’s new master crafts workshop in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, the RondeLouis Cartier filigree watch reinterprets the long history of filigree craftsmanship through vivid imagery and precious ornate design. Like the metal bead craftsmanship of 2013, this creative and heritage work bears witness to Cartier’s determination to regain and retain lost craftsmanship and technology.

  The ancient gold and silver craftsmanship originated in Egypt in ancient times. It was invented by the Sumerians in 3000 BC, then developed and expanded in India, Tibet, Greece, and Iran, and finally reached its peak in Portugal.

  Gold and silver wire craftsmanship is a kind of goldsmith craftsmanship. By kneading and fixing gold or silver wire, a decorative pattern with a hollow grille effect is created, which is as transparent as lace.

  For Cartier, the challenge is not only to apply this handicraft to the square inch space of the watch, but also to sublimate it to a higher artistic level by using precious jewelry materials such as gold, platinum and diamonds.

  The craftsmen of the Cartier Master Crafts Workshop need to use special tools to create gold or platinum filaments. The filaments are twisted, rolled and entangled, cut into small loops, and then used the gold and silver wire craftsmanship to form a pattern. All elements are fixed by the sides instead of the bottom.

  A pair of cheetahs on the dial. The black-painted fur is woven from diamond-set gold and platinum filaments. It takes more than a month to create such a filigree watch.

  Noble and solemn, two cheetahs with intersected eyes dotted with tailor-made emerald eyes. They look at each other gently under the starry night sky and contrast with the diamond-paved bezel.

This ingenious masterpiece of art combines many types of craftsmanship, from gem setting to filigree, from jewelry to watchmaking, from carving to lacquer. Thousands of procedures are only to achieve Cartier’s iconic cheetah image, a rare and precious masterpiece, balanced, elegant and delicate, as delicate and transparent as lace.

Athens’ Original Nautical Observatory Watch Passing The Spirit Of The Nautical Age

The launch of the new UN-118 movement of Athens Watch has once again proved its leadership in the watch industry. After more than a year of anticipation, this movement finally appeared in the new ‘Original Marine Observatory Watch’.

 The UN-118 movement is the first member of the self-developed movement series of Athenian Watch. It adopts the patented DIAMonSIL escapement developed in cooperation with the Swiss company Sigatec. Sigatec is currently the only company in the world capable of producing high-precision parts from silicon and DiamonSil. DIAMonSIL is a lightweight but hard material that reduces friction without the need for lubricants. The enamel dial is handmade by Donzé Cadrans, a globally recognized enamel dial expert and the latest member of the Athenian Watch Group. It is equipped with a stainless steel, rose gold, and titanium case.
 In the 19th century, international trade began to rise, and transportation at that time mainly relied on shipping. The astronomical clocks of this period are considered to be the most accurate timepieces to ensure the accurate voyage of the captains and their valuable cargo. Most of these timepieces are produced in Athens.

Colorful And Charming Radar True Thinline True Thin Series Color Watch Real Shot

The radar’s high-tech ceramic material has both excellent hardness and extraordinary lightness, and is favored by senior watchmakers. This time, the radar continues to use ceramic materials, and also makes a lot of color. There are a total of four new thin series watches, including dark blue, forest green, silver gray and chocolate brown. The editor of this article will show you the dark blue models.

 With the launch of four color watches this year, the Radar True Thinline is the brand’s first high-tech ceramic timepiece series with seven colors.

 The new color watch has the same good features as other high-tech ceramic watches from RADO. High-tech ceramic watches not only have hypoallergenic properties, but also an ingenious combination of extraordinary hardness and extreme lightness. Its hardness is close to 5 times that of stainless steel, while its weight is about 25% lighter.

 The production process of the radar plasma high-tech ceramic watch is different from other colored high-tech ceramic watches. The process does not add any color pigments, but is achieved by cutting-edge material processing technology. In a special furnace with a temperature of up to 20,000 ° C, the gas activated by the plasma column penetrates the high-tech ceramics, thereby changing the composition of the surface of the high-tech ceramics. Eventually white turns to plasma color-a unique metallic gray without any metallic elements. Achieving high-tech ceramic color consistency has always been a huge technical challenge, but Radar uses superb expertise to ensure that the colors of each batch of products show the same hue. Today, Radar has successfully created seven high-tech ceramic colors, once again highlighting the brand’s outstanding material master status.

Summary: Baselworld 2017 will present us a beautiful and unique visual feast, and we look forward to the report group in front of the Watch House to bring us more exciting content. For more details, please click the watch house Basel live event:

Chinese Annual Calendar Orphan Watch Grandly Unveiled Blancpain World’s Largest Flagship Store

To celebrate the grand opening of the Xintiandi flagship store in Shanghai, Blancpain presents a specially customized Chinese calendar watch. This is a special creation of Le Brassus watchmaking workshops dedicated to cutting-edge watchmaking skills, in order to pay tribute to the ancient traditions. This extraordinary timepiece, which has both practical value and far-reaching significance, will surely reach the brilliant pinnacle of fine watchmaking.
This Chinese calendar is specially presented by Blancpain, which highlights the mysterious beauty of traditional Chinese timekeeping, using the timekeeping principles that have been ingrained in China for thousands of years. The layout of the chronograph dial is exquisite, and the hour, minute and standard calendars are jumping on the dial. It also integrates important timing elements in the traditional Chinese calendar, such as twelve hours (24 hours), the lunar date, the lunar month (in combination with the leap month display), The zodiac year even includes five elements and ten heavenly stems. The twelve zodiac signs correspond to the twelve Earthly Branches, which are matched with the Ten Heavenly Stems in turn, forming sixty basic units or sixty stems, commonly known as ‘sixty-six flower Jiazi’, which constitute the core content of traditional Chinese culture. As an important timekeeping element in Blancpain’s full calendar watch, the moon phase profit and loss function is more closely related to the Chinese traditional calendar, which played an important role in the operation of this timepiece.

Different from the standard calendar with the solar day as the basic unit, the traditional Chinese lunar calendar uses the yin and yang calendar system, that is, the solar calendar with the monthly cycle (29.53059 days) as the basic unit. A lunar year contains 12 lunar months (354.36707 days), which is about 11 days less than a lunar year (365.242374 days). Therefore, in some years, there will be a leap month (as indicated by the ‘wax’ on the dial) to match the cycle of the four seasons. Since each Chinese lunar month (including the leap month) begins on the day of the new moon, the month is 29 or 30 days long. It can be seen that the lunar year including the leap month is actually 13 months, which is longer than the solar calendar. On the contrary, the lunar year without the leap month is only 12 months, which is shorter than the solar year. The typical characteristic of this traditional calendar is the cause of the uncertain date of the Chinese New Year.
This Chinese calendar is equipped with the new Calibre 3638 self-winding movement, which consists of 434 parts and has a power reserve of 7 days. The watch is complex in craftsmanship and exquisite in technology. It perfectly presents many time elements without periodic patterns on the dial. Among them, the hour hand, minute hand, and standard calendar are located in the center of the dial; the small dial at 12 o’clock displays hour numbers and characters (24-hour cycle); the three-line position displays five elements and ten days (10-year cycle); 9 o’clock The clock position shows the lunar month (12-month cycle), the lunar day (30-day cycle), and the leap month; the year window at 12 o’clock shows the zodiac year (12-year cycle), and the moon phase profit and loss display is on the dial 6 At o’clock.
This watch uses a 45mm diameter platinum case and a gem-set crown. The underside of the lugs is equipped with 5 concealed adjustment buttons that are patented by Blancpain, which at the same time ensures the simple and smooth lines on the side. In addition to the collection of Blancpain Villeret’s classic logos: such as double-layered bezel, hollowed-out willow-shaped hands and traditional serpentine blue-steel hands with standard calendar, this orphan watch also uses a red lacquered large fire enamel dial. , And equipped with a five-element pattern glazed gold pendulum, highlighting the close connection between this extraordinary timepiece and the traditional Chinese calendar.

Panerai New Limited Nautical Instrument

Eilean, a Bermuda sailing ship built in 1936, not only represents Panerai in the classic sailing industry, but also inspires a number of Panerai limited edition nautical instruments: barometer, hygrometer, thermometer and wall clock Are exclusively available at Panerai stores.

 Eilean was built at a time when Panerai was supplying the Italian Navy with the first prototype of a Panerai watch. Eilean is the late work of the legendary designer William Fife III in the shipbuilding industry. It comes from the high-end classic sailing ship in his hands, and there are still many ships sailing on the sea. Panerai purchased Eilean in 2007, and after a long and precise restoration project, it was able to return Eilean to its former style. It was the world’s most important classic and classic sailing tour event-the ‘Penerai Classic Sailing Challenge’ Showcases every year. Eilean is known for its beautiful waterline radians. It is not only a transcendental example of pure and aesthetic design, but also a symbol of infinite enthusiasm for the ocean. The restored Eilean is equipped with a number of marine instruments specially designed by Panerai to return to the sea, and these marine instruments are also the inspiration for many new models.

 Barometer, hygrometer, thermometer and wall clock, the new Panerai marine instrument, reproduce the classics of the maritime industry with the beautiful lines of EILEAN.

 The new barometer, hygrometer, thermometer and wall clock are also made of AISI 316L stainless steel. AISI 316L stainless steel is a low carbon alloy with excellent corrosion resistance. The four instruments are 14 cm in length and width, with a black dial, which is extremely simple in design. It improves readability to the highest level and displays air pressure, relative humidity, temperature and time. These four instruments used to be indispensable to every sailor. Even if most modern marine instruments have been replaced by electronic instruments, they are still invaluable treasures for navigators who were obsessed with the atmosphere of the old sailing era.

 The barometer was invented by Italian physicist EvangelistaTorricelli in 1643, providing accurate air pressure data for weather forecasting: high air pressure represents clear weather, and low air pressure warns of bad weather. Panerai’s barometer is stored in a metal box called a ‘barometer’. The barometer is compressed by the pressure of different degrees, and expands and contracts with the pressure, and transmits the change to the pointer.

 The function of the hygrometer is to display the humidity in the air, which has helped navigators assess rainfall or fog conditions for more than two centuries. When the hygrometer first came out, its use was very different from today. The first hygrometer appeared in the 14th century to eliminate disputes between wool merchants and buyers, because the price of wool is determined by weight, and different humidity every day will affect the weight of wool, and it will become heavy when wet. Lightens when dry.

 New Panerai Marine Instrument-Hygrometer

 A thermometer is an instrument that measures temperature. The first person in the world to turn a thermometer into actual readings was the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius. He measured the temperature with a mercury thermometer in 1742 and divided the temperature from the freezing point to the boiling point into one hundred parts. Become a universal temperature scale for future generations. Panerai’s thermometer measures temperature with two metals with different thermal expansion coefficients: a spiral-shaped metal sheet will bend due to different temperatures, and one end of the metal sheet is connected to a temperature pointer, which shows the temperature change at the angle of the pointer rotation.

 New Panerai marine instrument-thermometer

 Time is an extremely important data for navigators of the past, because time helps to calculate longitude and thus grasp the position and course of the ship. Voyagers needed precise timepieces when they went out to sea, and this demand later led to the birth of nautical astronomical clocks. Nautical astronomical clocks are precision instruments that can still function properly in harsh environments. Although Panerai’s new wall clock was born in the era when the wall clock was retired, it is still an exquisite practical tool. Its unique brand clock face echoes the classic design of Panerai watches.

Blancpain Blancpain’s ‘a Brief History Of Time’ Series Liang Wendao Guided Tour Timing Road

Stars are moving, the river is long, and within the borders of civilization, human beings have never stopped feeling about time. The blending and inheritance of wisdom finally converges into the source of civilization-the calendar. Although this philosophy of the relationship between man and nature is difficult at times, it is worth exploring.

BLANCPAIN

‘What is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I want to explain to the person asking it, I don’t know.’ Medieval Augustus broke the mysterious nature of time. Different civilizations count day by day, and the concepts and methods of time derived from ancient times, with their own understanding and imagination, are very different. In the program, Liang Wendao will lead us from an earliest eagle bone calendar, traveling all the way through ancient and modern times, exploring the ins and outs of the human calendar: from ancient Egypt by the Nile to Cuban Babylon above the plains of Mesopotamia And then to the ancient Mayan in Latin America and China in the east. Subsequently, the journey of exploration will be delayed in the time and space of Chinese civilization. The repeated calendar concept, the philosophy and wisdom of the unity of heaven and man, are so special in comparison.
