Wrist Legends New Ideas Blooming Tissot Watch Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show 2016 New Preview

The highly anticipated 44th Basel World Watch & Jewellery Show is about to kick off. As a well-known Swiss watch brand with innovative spirit, Tissot will bring more than 160 years of traditional watchmaking technology Innovative technology blends together and brings surprisingly good works to the world watch market again. Before this world watch feast opens, Tissot offers six new products to be exhibited to satisfy the curiosity of watch lovers in advance. Integrating the new wrist experience, I believe that Tissot will present us a brand new feast of watches this year.
Taste Italian elegance-Tissot Zhenshi watches
 The watch is named after the Italian word ‘Bella Ora’, which means ‘beautiful time’. It is an ideal accessory to control any dress and match casual style. It not only celebrates the beauty of the watch, but also its flowing pronunciation also symbolizes the wonderful arc of the watch, giving it a charming and feminine atmosphere. Like her Italian-style naming, the Tissot Zhenshi collection’s design inspiration also comes from Italy, which has the highest prestige in the fashion industry. The sheer simplicity of the dial gives it a natural elegance. The delicate seconds dial at 6 o’clock and the mother-of-pearl inlaid or Roman numerals at 12 o’clock add a touch of sophistication to the watch. When it comes to matching clothes and watches, the choice is always pleasing to the ladies. The Zhenshi series has many styles, and one is equipped with a Tissot Milanese strap, which is a perfect combination with this series design. Other models are equipped with a leather strap, which is delicate and smooth to the touch, and adds a bright color to the wrist.

Interpretation of color charm-Tissot Zhenshi small dial watch
 As a compact version of the Zhen Shi series, it can also be worn as jewelry, adding a touch of color to your dress. The impeccable precision of the Tissot watch is well known. When the exquisite hands slide past the classic Roman numerals, the beautiful rhythm of time is under control. Hemispherical sapphire crystals and gorgeous white, blue or black crowns highlight the luxury of the watch. Delicate detailing extends all the way to the inwardly curved bezel. The choice of straps is also very rich, ranging from jewellery stainless steel straps to fashionable leather straps, with solid colors and snake pattern designs for your choice.

Relive the classics of time-Tissot Le Locle women’s automatic watch
 This watch from the city of time continues the classic elegance of the Tissot watch Rocklock series, as if bringing people back to the town of Rocklock, feeling the accumulation of time. The small town of Lilok is located in the Jura Mountains of Switzerland and is the birthplace of Tissot’s century-old legend. This series of women’s watches continues many classic designs: the mother-of-pearl dial exudes natural artistic beauty; the Roman numerals at 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock are ancient and elegant; the long willow needles are elegant and precise. While continuing the classic, it also uses a large case with a diameter of 39.3 mm, keeping up with fashion trends. Some of the classic models of this classic watch are set with natural Wesselton diamonds, which emit a dazzling light, and the charm is irresistible. The fusion of classics and trends allows women wearing this watch to experiment with bold style while maintaining elegance.

Tribute to extraordinary craftsmanship-Tissot Le Locle
 Adhering to Tissot’s long-established watchmaking tradition, its intimate design details, including the large hands indicating the minutes, pay tribute to the original ‘standard hands’. The original ‘normative pointer’ means a clock used in the watchmaking workshops of the 18th and 19th centuries to verify the accuracy of the movement of pocket watches. The hour, minute, and second hands on the dial each have one side, which can effectively avoid the visual error caused by the overlapping of the coaxial hands, which not only facilitates time calibration, but also has a strong retro feeling. To reflect this feature, this watch has a small chronograph dial to indicate the seconds on the bottom of the dial, while the hour chronograph dial is on the top of the dial. The distinctive style of the standard pointer watch determines that it will be favored by watch lovers. It was born for the gentle and mature people who are not satisfied with looking for an ordinary watch, but want to obtain a piece of historical art. This watch comes in a variety of styles, including a classic black strap with a rose gold case, a stylish gold version, and a contemporary stainless steel version.

The Trinity Omega Tool Table For Speedmaster, Seahorse And Ironmaster (Part 2)

Throughout history, war has brought a deep disaster to humanity. Because of the need to create tools adapted to specific military purposes, war objectively promoted technological and economic development. For the most part, these tools have subsequently evolved into non-military equipment and have spread new technologies through various other areas.

Omega Speedmaster CK2915

Omega Speedmaster CK2915
   The Speedmaster is perhaps the most famous sports chronograph in watchmaking history, and it must be the most well-known of the Omega Trinity tool watches. Ironically, Speedmaster became famous not because it was a high-quality chronograph created for racers and team leaders, but because it was later selected by NASA as a standard timepiece to accompany astronauts to complete space missions and walk the moon. It is said that the design of the Speedmaster was inspired by the dashboard of the Italian sports car of that time. CK2915 was part of the Omega and Lemania project, which was then a subsidiary of Omega. The Speedmaster CK2915 prototype was ready at the end of 1956 and was released in 1957 with two other tool watches.

Omega Speedmaster CK2915

   Collectors call the first Speedmaster a ‘broad arrow’ because the hour hand has a large fluorescent arrow on the top, which is unique. The watch face is clean and tidy, without any frills that could impair legibility. The stainless steel bezel was engraved with the tachymeter scale and matte finish, which was also very novel for the chronograph at the time. The Speedmaster CK2915 is triple-protected, water-resistant to 200 feet (about 60 meters), and durable. Some details are often overlooked, but it is they that make this watch stand out, such as the vertical position of the chronograph second hand and the speed bezel are completely flat.

Omega Speedmaster CK2915

   The movement equipped with the first Speedmaster watch originated from a research project in 1942 and came from the famous Albert-Gustave Piguet. This movement is called 27 CHRO C12 (27 refers to a diameter of 27 mm, CHRO refers to the chronograph function, 12 refers to the cumulative 12 hours), it was renamed Omega Cal. 321. This movement uses a column wheel design. The initial version is not shock-resistant. In 1946, shock absorbers and anti-springs were added. The legendary 27 CHRO C12 (Cal. 321) is the first movement with a 12-hour cumulative chronograph function, and it is still one of the smallest chronograph movements to this day.

Omega Speedmaster CK2915

   The Speedmaster CK2915 comes in several versions (including very early variants and changes to the -1, -2, and -3 on the reference model), which can be considered a small update. CK2915-3 is a transitional model, Super Speed ​​began to change, and finally launched the CK2998 watch in 1959. The Speedmaster CK2915 watch produced very little between 1957 and 1959, so it was very rare and very expensive. We can say that the advent of the Speedmaster immediately and independently changed the face of the chronograph. It all started in 1957.
Omega Ironmaster CK2914 watch
   Due to the lack of continuity in the product line, Tieba is the least known of the Omega Trinity Tool. Tieba is rooted in highly accurate railway watches, as well as Omega RAF-53 CK2777 with antimagnetic protection. IWC was the first to explore enhanced antimagnetic protection (Mark Pilot’s Watch) and was the first to introduce such a watch to the market (1955, Engineer Ref. 666). Omega Ironmaster followed, this is the right tool watch.

Omega Ironmaster CK2914 watch

   Omega Ironmaster watches are designed for scientists and engineers whose jobs are often exposed to strong magnetic fields. The magnetic force generated by large engines, alternators, and power stations can seriously affect the timing of ordinary watches and even stop them completely. Omega created a triple-protected watch and made it magnetically insensitive with several key improvements. As an important aspect of anti-magnetic, the dial of Ironmaster watches is 1mm thick, far exceeding the 0.4mm standard of ordinary dials. The case is made of Huguenin Frères and is made of nickel-chrome corrosion-resistant malleable steel. It is 38 mm in diameter and has a screw-in case back. In addition, it is equipped with NuMetal soft iron inner plates to form a Faraday cage to protect the movement. Therefore, Omega Ironmaster watches are not only shock-proof, but also resistant to magnetic fields of up to 1,000 Gauss.
   Despite providing such complete protection, the Ironmaster has not survived: the model was discontinued in late 1963. The CK2914 is available in multiple versions (reference models -1 to -6, plus the last Ref. 135004 in the series), all of which can be seen as minor decorative updates. The common change for all sub-models is the pointer. About a year later, Omega replaced the wide arrow pointer with a toffee and a rod pointer.

Omega Seamaster CK2913 and Omega Ironmaster CK2914

   Another thing that makes the Ironmaster very interesting is its two military versions. The Pakistani Air Force (Pakistan Air Force) version delivered in 1961 is almost the same as the civilian version, except that the former dial is decorated with the word ‘Seamaster’, the back and movement are engraved with the abbreviation ‘P.A.F’, model number 2914. Thereafter, the smaller second batch model was 135.004. The backs of these watches are decorated with seahorse and PAF logos, as well as exclusive serial numbers. According to Omega Museum statistics, sales totaled 277. There is also a rare military version built by Omega for the Peruvian Air Force (Peruvian Air Force), with an order date of 1959. Although the dial and case back are decorated with Flightmaster lettering and logos, this version uses Ironmaster’s case and movement.
   In all variants, the CK2914 uses a total of three different manually wound movements. Caliber 284 movement from 1957 to 1958. This movement is equipped with Breguet balance springs. In 1943, it joined the Incabloc shock absorber. The number of gems was 17 and the vibration frequency was 21,600 times per hour (3 Hz). It also provided a 43-hour power reserve. . The Caliber 285 movement from 1959 to 1961 was equipped with a ring balance instead of a screw balance. Then, Caliber 285 was replaced by Caliber 286, which used a flat balance spring instead of a Breguet balance spring. The Ironmaster watch became a high-tech victim, but it was also defeated by the hippocampus. Back then, diving watches were more popular. Nonetheless, these do not detract from the charming charm and extraordinary performance of the Ironmaster.
Omega Seamaster CK2913
   The Hippocampus was born in 1948 and is the 100th anniversary of the establishment of Omega. It is the oldest watch series in the brand catalog. Omega originally planned to position it as a sturdy and elegant timepiece for active individuals. However, the 1950s divers started to rise and gradually became the style features we see today (chronograph bezel, sturdy case, thick hands and heavy mirror). Blancpain (Legendary Fifty Fathoms Watch) and Rolex (Iconic Submariner) are the industry pioneers in the field of professional diving watches. Omega was naturally unwilling to fall behind, so the hippocampus CK2913 watch was born in 1957.

Omega Seamaster CK2913

   The hippocampus CK2913 watch is water-resistant to 660 feet (about 200 meters), sharing the design spirit and technological innovation with the Speedmaster CK2915 watch and the Ironmaster CK2914 watch. The case is made by Huguenin Frères. It is made of nickel-chrome corrosion-resistant malleable steel, with a screw-in case back and reinforced mirror. The Naiad crown is waterproof and moisture-proof. The main feature of the hippocampus CK2913 watch is the diving bezel, which is marked with a counterclockwise scale and decorated with fluorescent spots at 12 o’clock, showing the remaining diving time. The dial of the hippocampus CK2913 watch is the same as that of the Iron Bully, and the hands are the same as those of the Speedmaster and Iron Bully.
   The Hippocampus CK2913 is driven by the Omega Caliber 501 automatic movement. Caliber 50X movement was produced from 1956 to 1960. During this period, the movement has been improved many times, and its name has been changed. All movements have a diameter of 28 mm, a thickness of 5.55 mm (without calendar) or 6.40 mm (with calendar), and a frequency of 19,800 vibrations / hour (2.75 Hz). Among them, the Caliber 501 movement equipped with the first generation of the hippocampus CK2913 watch has 19 gems and a power reserve of 46 hours.

Omega Seamaster CK2913

   The hippocampus CK2913 has many different variants, from 1-7, all equipped with the same movement, using the same dial and case. The 1-2 / 3 bezel is counterclockwise; the 3-6 bezel is clockwise. 1-2 / 3 with radium fluorescent wide arrow pointer; 3-6 with toffee pointer or narrow arrow pointer. The last -7 with a ‘lollipop’ second hand, probably to match the Speedmaster CK2998 watch. In 1960, CK2913-7 was replaced by CK14755, which was equipped with a different self-winding movement, Cal.552. Since then, the Omega hippocampus has undergone fundamental changes. Although beautiful in shape and highly collectible, the first generation of the hippocampus CK2913 watch (including sub-model) is not a favorite of collectors, this honor seems to belong to the military model equipped by the Royal Navy in the 1960s. Despite this strange phenomenon, the first generation of the hippocampus CK2913 laid the foundation for the comprehensive transformation of the Omega diving watch, making it closely follow the trend of the times. At the same time, this transformation has also created many extraordinary diving watches, and to this day, the hippocampus is still Omega’s most popular product series.

Glamorous Brief Comment On Girard Perregaux 1966 Series Time Equation Watch

Girard Perregaux 1966 series has added an annual calendar astronomical time difference watch to SIHH in Geneva 2012. Not only does the appearance inherit the consistent elegance of Girard-Perregaux 1966 series, but the ruthenium metal dial and time equation Functional responsibility highlights the uniqueness of this watch. Today, the Watch House brings you a brief review of Girard Perregaux 1966 series time equation watches. The official model of the watch is: 49538-52-131-BK6A.

 The time equation, also called ‘astronomical time difference’, is a fever-level function in the field of watchmaking technology. To enhance the technical value of this new model, Girard Perregaux is equipped with the newly developed Microvar cardless balance spring in the movement. The wheel frame is equipped with 6 correction screws and 2 weights, which can be independently adjusted. Improve the quality of swing and frequency, so as to improve the accuracy of the display of the almanac and astronomical time difference, and the movement of the movement from the sapphire crystal case back to see.

 

The watch’s functional layout is new, it can be said that it is a masterpiece of the combination of top-level timepiece function and elegant style. The watch is crafted in an 18K rose gold case with a 40 mm diameter design.

 

The so-called true solar time (also known as apparent solar day, true solar day, etc.) refers to the time interval between the real sun passing through the meridian of the place twice. But because the earth is in an elliptical orbit, its speed of movement and its distance from the sun are constantly changing, so the time of each true solar day is not the same.

 

The watch comes with a black alligator leather strap, which is soft and comfortable. The buckle adopts a pin buckle design made of 18K rose gold, which is simple and safe to wear.

 

The rose gold case has a diameter of 40 mm, a thickness of 10.72 mm, and a water resistance of 30 meters. It is only suitable for daily waterproofing. This thickness is also very comfortable to wear on the wrist.

 

The ruthenium metal dial is decorated with matte ray texture, and the bar-shaped hour markers and leaf-shaped hands are harmoniously arranged, making the time and function display more clear. The annual calendar function is displayed at 7 and 2 o’clock on the dial, and it needs to be adjusted once on non-leap year February 28. At 9 o’clock, the small second hand is displayed.

 

The mean solar day is the average of all true solar days in a whole year, and is also called the mean solar time. 1/86400 of a flat solar day = 1 flat solar second (24 × 60 × 60 = 86400 seconds in a day) as the basic unit of measuring time. Modern clocks are designed and manufactured according to this principle. Because this watch does not have sunrise and sunset time display, there is no need to design and manufacture according to the longitude and latitude of the user’s area.

 

The watch comes with a black alligator strap and a pin buckle in 18K rose gold.

  

Equipped with GP033M0 self-winding movement, it can operate through the crystal glass back. The movement has a diameter of 11.5 cents, has 287 parts, and 44 jewel bearings. It has a 46-hour power reserve and a shock frequency of 28800vph / 4Hz. The movement is also equipped with a Microvare variable inertia balance wheel (Microvare variable inertia balance wheel). The balance frame is set with 6 screws and two inertia weights, each of which can be independently fine-tuned to make the balance operation in the optimal state, improving the accuracy and stability of the travel time. .

 

Summary: The watch combines the elegance of modern aesthetics and the tradition of superb watchmaking technology. The watch is equipped with an ingeniously designed oval cam and annual ring system to show the time difference caused by the orbit of the earth between the years. At present, the domestic price of this watch is 282,000 yuan. If you want to appreciate the charm of the time equation, do not miss this watch.

Tuofei Watches Lecture Hall – Language’s Classic Double Chase Chronograph Mechanism

The double-tracking needle function is adopted by major brands with research and development capabilities as an upgrade mechanism of chronographs, with the purpose of launching ultra-complex watches of this brand. At present, the brand that has impressed me is the watchmaker Patek Philippe, the research and development expert Audemars Piguet, and the successful revival of the brand Lange, which was launched at the Geneva exhibition in 2013. Lange’s chronograph is very prominent among many similar ones. It inherits the essence of German watchmaking. The clever design of the mechanism is one aspect. The polishing technology of excellence is a magic weapon for many followers to worship.

technical background

The background of the chronograph’s dual chasing seconds mechanism was that in the year, when the players crossed the finish line, there was a long enough interval to record the readings. The dual chasing seconds hand stopped for each player, in order to catch up with the chronograph Repeat for the next player. The original purpose of double tracking is to record the values ​​of multiple time periods, not for the accuracy of timing. It is this design philosophy that makes double tracking seconds more and more valued by watchmakers, creating extremely sophisticated double tracking. Seconds mechanism.

Appearance characteristics

A typical double-seconds chronograph has two long seconds: one is a standard chronograph second hand that can start, stop and return to zero; the other is a chronograph second hand superimposed directly on top of the standard chronograph second hand, and the chase button is operated by the chase button There are two actions of stopping and catching up. The basic operation steps of chasing hands are as follows: in the first step, start the chronograph function and start the chronograph with the two seconds hands; in the second step, press the chase second button to stop the chase second hand at the top and continue to rotate the lower chronograph second hand; , Press the chronograph second button again, the chronograph second hand located at the top quickly catches up with the chronograph seconds hand below, and both continue to rotate simultaneously.

(TIPS: Everyone needs to pay attention to that the second hand is running synchronously with the chronograph second hand under normal circumstances, which means that the start, stop and return to zero are all synchronized.)

Structure

There are four characteristics of the chase seconds structure: chase seconds wheel, chase seconds caliper, chase seconds wheel, and chase seconds start and stop lever. Among these four features, the start-stop lever is responsible for the two operation steps of the above-mentioned chase hands-stop and chase hands, and it directly talks with the chase seconds timing wheel, this part of the principle is consistent with the working principle of the chronograph. Under normal circumstances, the spurs of the chronograph seconds wheel will lift the two protrusions of the chronograph seconds caliper in the middle position so that the chronograph seconds hand can rotate synchronously with the chronograph seconds hand. The second timer wheel rotates, and the two protrusions of the second timer caliper enter the gap of the column gear of the second timer wheel, the second brake caliper closes the brake second timer wheel, and the second timer stops; the button again drives the second timer to start and stop. After levering, the chase seconds wheel rotates again, and the two protrusions of the chase seconds caliper are raised again by the teeth of the chase seconds wheel, and the chase seconds wheel is released. The connecting spring quickly resets the chronograph second wheel and the chronograph second wheel through elastic tension, and rotates the timing synchronously.

The chronograph occupies a very special position in the functional category of mechanical watches. It has a large number of followers and followers. Although its chronograph function does not have many opportunities for ordinary people to display, the original reason for its birth place Has also been forgotten. So why are so many people keen on chronographs? I think the reason is that the timing mechanism is one of the many functions of a mechanical watch that can best embody the beauty of the machine. It perfectly explains the true value of the machine. The timing mechanism, especially with the dual chase function, presents us a great meal-various gears, weird-shaped levers and the plywood carrying them are carefully polished and decorated, while the blue screws and red gems are embellished with the finishing touch. It’s all intoxicating.
