The Hermès boutique in Faubourg Saint-Honoré, in the heart of Paris, has been selected as the launch location for its new watch. This new product will mark the official entry of Hermes into the world of high-end watchmaking. The unique name of this watch, Arceau Lift, is enough to explain why Hermès chose this store instead of BaselWorld to host such a major launch event. This is because the new design inspiration is completely derived from an experience of product manager Philippe Delhotal visiting this store.
Arceau Lift marks the beginning of a new direction for Hermes.
In this 3,000-square-meter luxury fort, Delhotal found an intertwined double H pattern in the main elevator. It symbolizes the union of the Hermès and Hollande families after the company’s grandson Emile Hermès married Julie Hollande. Philippe Delhotal chose to use this logo as the basis for the design of this new flying tourbillon, using the Arceau case and a new movement designed and produced by La Joux-Perret for Hermès.
Hermès CEO Luc Perramond told Europa Star that the watch is the brand’s second tourbillon series and the first flying tourbillon. ‘In 2010, we produced a tourbillon watch in the Cape Cod series using a Vaucher Manufacture tourbillon movement,’ he recalls, ‘but this time we wanted to design a flying tourbillon. Because we always seek The best craftsmen, and La Joux-Perret has international expertise in the production of tourbillons, especially flying tourbillons, and we decided to work with them. ‘
Arceau Lift marks the beginning of a new direction for Hermes. The calm design of high-end watchmaking just complements the blanks beyond the exquisite craftsmanship of straw inlay styles. ‘This will be another design using what I call ‘traditional complication’,’ explained Mr. Perramond, ‘here I mean those processes that are well known and provide good technical performance. We need to develop a wider range of products , And of course you ca n’t forget the original spirit of the “pause time” watch. ”
Hermès Arceau Lift
The 43 mm diameter Arceau rose gold case, with asymmetrical lug pins, is structured to highlight the apparent weightlessness of the flying tourbillon. The space below the blue crystal is mainly occupied by a flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock and a clockwork lid at 12 o’clock. Both share the double H design of the famous elevator in the Hermes store in Paris. Another component is the manually wound H1923 movement developed by La Joux-Perret specifically for Hermès, hidden behind a bridge across the 3 and 9 o’clock positions. The vibration frequency of the movement is 3 Hz, and the power reserve is 90 hours when fully wound. All surfaces of the watch are chamfered and polished by hand, and the screws are also polished. The back of the tourbillon can be seen through the blue crystal hole at the 6 o’clock position on the back of the case. The ring is engraved with the graphic of Hermès ex libris. Arceau Lift paired with a matt Havana crocodile leather strap made by Hermès Watch Workshop demonstrates the brand’s long tradition as a leather goods manufacturer.
At first glance, what is striking is the flying tourbillon’s eye-catching structure. The dial’s central gear cross bridge divides the watch into two parts, the upper part is the dominant dial, and the lower part is the flying tourbillon. flywheel. But when you look at it for the second time, you will find that the designer and watchmaker’s six months of hard work is worth the money: from the discreetly carved V-shaped pattern on the dial background to the chamfered surface (chamfered The process takes 40 hours) and the contrasting brushed and polished surfaces show attention to detail. Details permeate the entire watch design into the movement design, not the other way around.
Luc Perramond acknowledges that Arceau Lift to some extent meets the needs of ‘hermès loyal customers exploring watchmaking’. Not surprisingly, this watch will only be sold in the brand’s own stores. There are only 176 watches in 340 stores (this number echoes the brand’s age). Limited edition watches are on sale, and it is clear that the supply is far from enough. The price of 155,000 Swiss francs may slightly ease demand, but one day before the launch, a customer bought a pocket watch for 250,000 Swiss francs at the ‘Timepieces of Exception’ exhibition in its Paris store.
The development period of the H1923 movement of the Arceau Lift watch (the elevator was installed in this store in 1923) lasted for 18 months, and there was also a huge investment in industrialization. These can not rely on Arceau Lift’s 176 limited timepiece cover the cost. Therefore, Arceau Lift is only the first watch and will evolve into a multi-member tourbillon family in the future.
In addition, we can also look forward to seeing more innovation from Hermès at BaselWorld in 2014. As Luc Perramond revealed: ‘This is a legend that I want to continue. Not only are there a lot of possibilities, but also ideas and technical challenges. At the Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show, we will show a complex device, While continuing the spirit of Temps Suspendu, there will be a new form of interaction with watch wearers. ‘
There are always customers waiting in line at the Hermès store. Instead of coming for shopping, they are more likely to receive service. This amazing scene is enough to prove that Luc Perramond claims ‘business is good’, and the 10% sales growth in 2013 is also strong evidence. Unlike some competitors, Hermès’ customer base is not just Chinese. ‘We have historically been strong in the Japanese and European markets,’ said Mr. Perramond. ‘We are still developing the Chinese and North American markets recently.’ Uncertainty that does not need to rely on mainland Chinese customers and the Chinese economy is something for Hermes Good thing, but perhaps more importantly, the bright prospects of the watch market more herald a brighter future for Hermes....

[January 26, 2014, Florida, USA] January 26, Eastern Time, the 52nd Rolex 24 at Daytona in Dayton, Florida, USA Take the Daytona International Speedway to a grand end, and the tension lasted until the last second of 24 hours. As the title sponsor and designated timekeeper of the race, Rolex is proud to provide the precise timing tool for this renowned endurance race. According to tradition, the championship was awarded to the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona.
This year’s competition is dazzling, with many leading teams losing to their strong rivals in the final stage. Especially in the last 20 minutes before the end of the race, the distance of the leading team gradually pulled in. Finally, the 5th Corvette DP of the Action Express Racing team won the championship with a 1.461 second lead and won the championship. The drivers of the championship team are Joao Barbosa and Portuguese driver Christian Fittipaldi who has won the championship three times, and Sebastian Bourdais from Le Mans, France, who won the championship for the first time in endurance events. In addition, the ORECA FLM 9 team successfully won the PC-level race. In addition, in the GTLM and GTD competitions, Porsche 911 North American Porsche Team Porsche 911RSR and 555 Level 5 Motorsport Team Ferrari 458F won the championship.
The Rolex Daytona 24 Hours and the Les 24 Heures du Mans, also sponsored and officially timed by Rolex, are the most famous races in the world. In 1959, Rolex established a cooperative relationship with the Daytona International Circuit. In February 1962, the Daytona Continental was held for the first time. In 1964, the event evolved into a 24-hour endurance race. In 1992, Rolex officially became the title sponsor of the race, and the event has since been renamed the ‘Rolex Daytona 24 Hours.’ Every year, the race officially starts at 2:30 pm local time on the last Saturday of January. More than half of the 24-hour endurance race is conducted at night. It is the ultimate test of human fitness and racing machinery. Renowned automakers, including Ferrari and Porsche, prepare the Rolex Daytona 24 Hours for a long time every year and regard the race as a weather vane for the performance of the entire season.
Rolex and Motorsport
Rolex is proud to be the main driving force of motorsport. Whether supporting top racing events such as Formula 1 ™, classic endurance challenges such as the Les 24 Heures du Mans, or sponsoring the historic Pebble Car Tour Beach Concours d’Elegance) followed the tradition and Rolex formed a special relationship with this speed-seeking sport.
This kind of cooperation can be traced to the pioneering spirit that Rolex had at the beginning. In the early twentieth century, after the founding of Rolex by Hans Wilsdorf, he was keenly aware of the trend that watches would become popular. But at the time, the watch was still considered a fragile timepiece device, so Wilsdorf was determined to create a sturdy, precise and reliable watch that could be used in many situations.
In 1910, Rolex watches were first certified by the Official Watch Rating Centre in Biel, Switzerland. This is the first certification the watch has issued to the watch. In 1926, Rolex invented the world’s first precision chronograph waterproof watch, the Rolex Oyster. The watch is equipped with a Rolex-owned patented case. The structure consists of a screwed bezel, the back of the case and the crown of the mainspring. One year later, in order to verify its performance, Mr. Wilsdorf wore an oyster watch on the wrist of swimmer Mercedes Gleitze. In October 1927, Successfully crossed the English Channel on the 27th. The Rolex on her wrist has stood the test of water for ten hours and has always maintained perfect running conditions, making this young British woman the first spokesperson for the Rolex brand-she has witnessed the outstanding quality of Rolex watches.
In 1931, Rolex improved the Oyster watch and added the world’s first self-winding device, the Perpetual Oscillator, the pioneer of contemporary self-winding structure.
Under the leadership of Wilsdorf, Rolex has tested Rolex Oyster watches around the world and has continuously proven its reliability in extreme environments, whether on land, at high altitudes, in the deep sea or on top of Mount Everest. Rolex’s name has been associated with many record-setting events and has become synonymous with the world’s most trusted and accurate timer.
At the same time, Rolex and its products have continued to develop and strive for perfection. As part of this evolution, Rolex watches use only the finest materials and the best designs in the industry. It has become a symbol of elegance and dignity.
Because of this, Rolex seeks to collaborate with passion-driven, high-performance and precision-finding events like itself. The racing world is its natural choice. As early as the 1930s, when Sir Malcolm Campbell wore a Rolex watch and broke the car’s land speed record, Rolex formed an alliance with the sport.
Prestigious partnership with the racing world
Since 1959, Rolex has formed an alliance with the Daytona International Speedway in the United States. A few years later, Rolex named the Daytona as a classic watch designed by racers-the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona series. Since then, Rolex has appeared more and more frequently in racing competitions. Since 1992, Rolex has been the title sponsor of the Rolex 24 At Daytona in Florida, USA; since 2001, it has become the world’s oldest endurance race-Le Official timer for the Les 24 Heures du Mans.
Since 2013, Rolex has become the official timekeeper of Formula 1 ™, the pinnacle of motorsports. The development of this long-term cooperation means that the close cooperation between Rolex and motorsport has reached its peak. Back in the late 1960s, Rolex invited racing legend Sir Jackie Stewart to join its team of prominent spokespersons. Sir Stewart has been one of the most prestigious drivers in the Formula One world for the past four decades. He won the Formula One Championship three times in 1969, 1971 and 1973, and won 27 championships. In the 1970s, his contributions to driving safety in the Formula One Championship made him widely known.
In addition, through an alliance with Le Mans 24 Hours, Rolex proudly sponsors Danish driver Tom Kristensen, who has won eight championships at the Le Mans 24 Hours.
Driven by the spirit of self-breakthrough and the pursuit of excellence, Rolex began to cooperate with Bloodhound supercars in 2011 to set a world record speed record, and became the official timing partner. Bloodhound’s goal is to drive cars with cutting-edge supersonic airplanes and rocket engines, setting a speed record of 1,000 mph (1600 km / h). From 1935 Sir Malcolm Campbell drove the ‘Bluebird’ to break the speed record of 300 mph (438 km / h) at that time to today’s sponsorship of the project, Rolex has been extremely fast The forefront of the world has its place.
In addition to racing, Rolex sponsored events designed to showcase the charm of vintage cars, including the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, which began in the 1950’s and showcased the most avant-garde Car models. Today, this prestigious race is held every year in Pebble Bay, California, bringing together many eye-catching vintage cars. Since 1997, Rolex has become the official timer of the game. As part of the competition, the Pebble Beach Tour d’ Elegance, which began in 1997, was also sponsored by Rolex. Its vision is to show the elegant beauty of classic cars in sports. In 2007, Rolex became the title sponsor of the event.
In addition, Rolex honors were presented at the Goodwood Revival in the UK and the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in the United States. Goodwood Vintage Racing is dedicated to showing cars produced before 1966; Rolex Monterrey Classic Motorsport attracts more than 600 vintage cars to the Mazda Laguna Seca Circuit in Monterey, California each year.
Driven by the passion for excellence, Rolex, the world’s leading Swiss watchmaking brand, with an unparalleled appreciation of the racing world, is committed to fostering a close relationship between the two. As leaders in their respective fields, they are tirelessly pursuing perfection .

This masterpiece that shocked the watch industry comes from the ID series concept watch created by Cartier. It first launched an ID ONE in 2009. This avant-garde concept watch combines a variety of new materials. And innovative technology, realizing the whole life cycle without adjustment and accurate travel time, this breakthrough once caused a huge sensation in the industry.
A major ID Two concept watch released by Cartier this year can be described as an upgraded version of the previous ID ONE. The two letters of the Cartier ID watch represent Innovation and Development respectively, which is exactly the concept that this series of concept watches uphold.
Left is ID ONE, right is ID TWO
The first watch in the series was the Cartier ID One, which had already met the public as early as 2009. There were 8 major innovations at the time: 1. No adjustment required; 2. No lubricant required; 3. Hardness comparable to diamond Carbon crystal materials; 4. Ceramic microcrystalline glass (Zérodur) hairspring; 5. ADLC amorphous diamond-like carbon coating; 6. Impact-resistant niobium titanium alloy; 7. Escape fork to remove ‘ruby’; 8. DRIE silicon crystal Integrated micro-etching technology. The Cartier ID Two concept table introduced this time has made 4 major innovations on the basis of ID One.
Cartier ID One Concept Watch
1. Polysilicon transparent ceramic integrated vacuum case, nanotechnology gasket, vacuum status can be maintained for 10 years
In order to be able to maintain the vacuum for a long time, Cartier uses Ceramyst’s innovative polysilicon transparent ceramic to make the completely transparent Calibre de Cartier case. The case is the key to maintaining the vacuum inside the watch. The case consists of only two parts, reducing the necessary connection surface by 48%. Relying on its nano-shim and micro-porous material, it can keep the vacuum inside the case for at least 10 years.
This ID TWO has made 4 major innovations on its basis
2. Two sets of dual barrels with a power reserve of up to 32 days
Increase energy storage, improve transmission efficiency, and reduce energy loss. In order to achieve the above three goals, Cartier has comprehensively optimized every detail of the ID TWO concept watch. Compared with traditional watches, ID TWO power has increased by 30% and energy consumption has been reduced by 50%. Inside the Calibre de Cartier 42 mm case, the ID TWO concept watch has reached an amazing 32-day power reserve.
3. Glass fiber clockwork
Speaking of increasing energy storage, the first thing we thought of was to strengthen the power system. Increasing the number of barrels and increasing the length of the barrel are the traditional ways to enhance power reserve. Cartier ID TWO concept watch uses a variety of new technologies in the power system in order to achieve the purpose of increasing energy storage. ID TWO is equipped with two double barrels and uses for the first time a highly elastic glass fiber as the mainspring. To reduce friction, Cartier replaced it with an ultra-thin, non-porous, transparent and extremely smooth polymer film. With traditional lubricants.
ID TWO Concept Watch
4. Variable speed differential
TID TWO’s differential device is very novel. The device can be divided into two layers, the lower gear and the upper planetary gear. The lower gear shaft meshes with the transmission wheel plate, and the gear plate meshes with the second wheel shaft. The upper part is composed of a large gear with an inward ring gear and a planetary gear mechanism. The inward ring gear tooth gear will not rotate, but only acts as a track. The shafts of the two planetary gears mesh with the teeth of the inner ring of the large gear, and the two disks mesh with the central shaft. The planetary mechanism revolves around the center while the two planetary gears rotate, and the planetary gear mechanism drives the minute hand. The speed of the lower gear of the differential device is fast, and the speed of the upper gear is reduced by a planetary gear mechanism. The rotation speed of the planetary gear mechanism is one revolution of 60 minutes, so a minute hand is mounted on the differential gear. In traditional watches, the gear (two wheels) that meshes with the mainspring is usually used as the split wheel, while the ID TWO gear that meshes with the mainspring has a slow speed and directly acts as the hour wheel, and is fitted with an hour hand.
The ID TWO concept watch is built in a vacuum case, which can be kept in vacuum for 10 years.
From this, we can see that the clockwork output of ID TWO watches is slower than traditional watches (the gear connected to the clockwork is directly used as the time wheel). The output energy of the clockwork per unit time is lower than that of traditional watches. Important shifting effect, the actual energy use efficiency is higher than traditional watches. In addition, the gears of ID TWO watches are made of carbon-coated silicon. This material is 60% harder and 70% lighter than steel. These parts can reduce friction to five times that of steel and copper. one. The unconventional gear train layout, unique differential device, and the help of new materials have increased the energy transmission efficiency of ID TWO watches by 10%.
ID TWO Concept Watch
The Cartier carbon crystal celestial tourbillon is the first watch to be mass-produced according to the ID ONE concept. Which deeply reflects the ion etching technology (DRIE) process, integrated molding escapement system, etc. have been applied to the ID ONE concept table, and after a reliable verification, laid the foundation for the mass production of concept technology. It can be seen that conceptual design is a leader and practitioner of scientific and technological progress, and the practical application of conceptual design is not trivial. This watch will be officially announced in 2013 at the International Haute Horlogerie Salon, limited to 50 pieces.
Although this line is tough and well-defined, it is a watch that shows the toughness of mature people. But maverick women also like this watch design. Gold and black rubber (information, quotes) are at the same time contrasting with diamonds, making the watch domineering. The ‘king size’ in the chronograph makes the watch itself more eye-catching and eye-catching. This is a classic that perfectly combines sports style with jewellery watches.
Car Cartier Pasha Seatimer watch, a large size of 42.5 mm in diameter, surrounded by diamonds on the bezel, a precious chronograph.
4The large size of 42.5 mm in diameter, and the bezel is set with diamonds all around, making a precious chronograph. The design of many details of this watch makes women more admired. In terms of color, it blends contrasting K gold and black, and individual women prefer this visual impact. The chronograph buttons and crown are made of black ceramic and decorated with ‘clou de Paris’, echoing the sides of the bezel.
The strap also inherits the two-tone style, with black rubber links in the gold diamond chain. All of these collections show the strong style of the watch. The self-winding movement frees women from mechanical pain, with a power reserve of 42 hours and a total diamond weight of 11.4 carats, which can indeed attract the attention of many women.
Hollowwork is a time-honored art of watchmaking. Only craftsmanship and ingenuity can be used to hollow out a movement without flaws, and it will not be perfect Run to make any compromises and concessions.
Hollowing-out process means hollowing out the plate, bridge or other components of the movement to show its unique beauty. This tricky process requires extreme patience and superb skills to show the rich structure of the skeletonized movement in a clear and transparent space, while ensuring impeccable mechanical operation.
After completing the design of the hollow pattern, the craftsman first drilled small holes with a fine drill, and then went deep into the small saw for sawing. In tabulation terms, this type of saw is called a ‘boc fil.’ The engraving work takes tens of hours. The master of craftsmanship needs to maintain a high degree of attention when removing the metal in the hollow part, and carefully achieve a delicate balance between the beauty of the hollow perforation and the perfect travel time.
After that, the craftsman performed surface processing on the hollowed out parts one by one, chamfered and polished the cut surface of the bridge plate, processed the satin side, and finally polished the grooves with pearls. In this long process, each process is performed manually, requiring professional experience and skilled craftsmanship. Therefore, the hollow-out process of a movement with a large complication watch alone can take more than 120 hours to complete.
