Retro Modern Square Charm Glashütte’s Original Gold 60s Square Series, With A Retro Design To Reproduce The 60s Fashion

Fun fashion, square dial is king. Following the debut of Sixties Iconic’s golden 1960s vintage commemorative watch in 2015, Glashütte Original pays higher respect to the iconic 1960s design. On the occasion of the 67th Berlin International Film Festival, the German watchmaker launched a special series, including five square chronographs, with a distinctive dial created by the brand in Pforzheim, Germany. There are factory dial craftsmen. Bright colors and charming dials, these iconic design elements first appeared on the ‘Spezimatic’ models introduced in the 1960s. 25 sets of Sixties Iconic Square watches with different personalities will be available in Glashütte original boutiques worldwide.

   Energetic, distinctive and memorable, the 1960s, with its inspiring designs, left a strong mark in the fields of watchmaking, furniture, and fashion with unique geometric shapes and colorful creative colors. In the mid-1960s, Glashütte watchmakers launched a series of Spezimatic models, which gave birth to a timeless iconic style. Square pillow-shaped, curved dial, curved hands, unique Arabic numerals, these mainstream time design elements have inspired the gilt sixties square series. Five models are named for their bright colors: Sixties Iconic Forest 鎏 Gold 1960s Green Watch, Sixties Iconic Ocean 鎏 Gold 1960s Sea Blue Watch, Sixties Iconic Graphite 鎏 Gold 1960s Ink Grey Watch, Sixties Iconic Tangerine 鎏 Gold 60s orange watch and Sixties Iconic Fire 鎏 Gold 1960s watch. All models are equipped with the self-made Calibre 39-34 automatic movement, which is typical of the exquisite watchmaking skills of the Glashütte tradition.

Original 1960s design for original dial
   Five new models with unique color dials are hand-crafted in Glashütte’s original Pforzheim’s own dial factory. Watches are made with original tools and authentic craftsmanship from the 1960s, and go through extremely complex and time-consuming manufacturing processes.
   Glashütte’s original expert dial artisans have devoted almost paranoid painstaking efforts to each of the unusually complicated steps, especially in the use of colored paint, to achieve the accurate color tone from the illuminated center to the darkened peripheral area And color changes, often referred to as the ‘dégradé effect’-this luxurious and glorious finish can be seen on all five models.

   First of all, a layer of electroplated substrate is processed for these dials; then a series of procedures are used to manually add layers of colored paint-bright green, dark blue, dark gray or fiery bright red. In the final step, a special spray gun is used to carefully spray black paint on this ‘canvas’ — a process that produces unique gradient colors, depending on the angle of the spray gun, called the ‘gradient effect’, which makes every watch unique. The color of the orange dial is extraordinary, and it comes through the additional lacquer color: the initial gold-plated coating is not only covered with a black, but also with a red lacquer.

   The lacquered dial is then baked in the oven. Among the five models of the gilt 1960s square series, four of them have unique shades and shades combined with exquisite and elegant sunburst to further enhance the gradient effect. The fifth model, the 60’s signature indigo watch, uses an exquisite print pattern in a particularly interesting way. Prior to nickel plating, a delicate tortoiseshell pattern was pressed on the dial blank through a 60-ton press. This embossed pattern is called ’embossed pattern’ and is recorded in the archives of the Glashütte Original Dial Factory.

Watchmaking power for over half a century
   The economic and political crisis of the Glashütte watchmaking industry in the 1960s gave birth to innovative solutions and extraordinary works, such as the ‘Spezimatic’ series of watches, whose iconic design is now Glashütte Original Six The inspiration for the Zeros collection. After its first introduction in 1964, a large number of Spezimatic models began to use dials made by the professional dial factory in Pforzheim (then West Germany). The cooperation relationship between the brand and Pforzheim began more than 50 years ago; the acquisition of the watch factory by the Swatch Group in 2006 further strengthened the cooperation between the two parties; since Glashütte original direct ownership, this relationship has once again Strengthened. Today, the comprehensive integration of the expertise of the dial factory enables Glashütte Original to develop extraordinary and stylish dial designs that meet the highest quality standards.

Available in Glashütte Original Boutiques and Selected Retailer Stores
   Five watches in the 鎏 Gold 60s square series feature a distinctive square pillow (41.35 x 41.35 mm) stainless steel case and are equipped with a self-made Calibre 39-34 automatic chronograph movement. All models are equipped with exclusive Louisiana alligator leather straps: a green or orange dial with a brown strap, and a black, blue or flame dial with a black strap.
   Five watches in the 1960s square series, each produced in a limited edition of 25, are available at Glashütte Original’s major boutiques and select retailers in the world.

Domestic Watch Peaking Seagull Double Tourbillon Watch

Early on, I knew Tianjin Watch Factory (the predecessor of Seagull Group). At that time I was focusing on exploring the vertical and horizontal history of the entire watch. According to records: As early as 1955, Tianjin, as one of the important towns of China’s light industry, developed China’s first domestic watch. At that time, the Tianjin Watch Factory was also a public-private joint venture called Guohua Watch & Clock Instrument Metal Manufacturing Factory. Only four simple lathes, bench drills, grinders, and milling machines; just four experienced workers, relying on the strong will and confidence of that particular era, made a hard copy of the Swiss Sindacd movement and made China The first domestic watch. On March 6, 1955, the Workers’ Daily first reported this exciting news. Since then, Tianjin Watch Factory has become one of the main manufacturers of watch manufacturing in China.

Nowadays, after the reorganization of this once brilliant national brand is renamed the Seagull Group, it has successfully developed and produced three complex functions in Chinese-made watches: minute repeater watch, perpetual calendar watch and tourbillon watch. Even the tourbillon series of watches has produced a double tourbillon watch, which is very rare and difficult in the world. Injecting Chinese blood into the world’s high-end sophisticated mechanical watch market, winning the world’s attention and attention for China’s watchmaking industry, and realizing the ambition of ‘the international watchmaking industry should have the position of a seagull watch’! This is really gratifying. Among the themes rising in several major watch auctions today, the Chinese concept watch is undoubtedly a hot spot. In the past few years, the transaction prices of Chinese-themed clocks and clocks have increased significantly. I believe that when the overall external economic environment is not good, buying domestic products, supporting the Chinese national industry, and arousing a sense of national responsibility must be the pride and pride of the people with Chinese blood.

的 Anyone who knows a little about clocks has heard the term tourbillon. In fact, the tourbillon is the name of a very complicated structure, a wonderful work in watchmaking. This design, which can eliminate the influence of gravity on the mechanical movement, can only be produced by a few manufacturers in the world who have mastered high-level technology, and technicians must also master small and careful craftsmanship. Dozens of parts are contained in a small space, these parts weigh less than one gram.

In 2003, Seagull developed the first-generation tourbillon: the movement of the movement was changed to a direct drive, and the escapement speed-regulating device of the overall rotation was changed to an eccentric balance, and an eccentric tourbillon with a rotating support frame was adopted. Has received widespread attention from the market. After that, the Seagull Group made a strange move and developed a double tourbillon watch that is very rare in the world: it also has eccentricity (also called non-coaxial, that is, the center of the balance and the center of the tourbillon structure are not on the same axis) Coaxial (that is, the center of the balance wheel and the center of the tourbillon structure are on the same axis), two different types of tourbillons have achieved new leap forwards in terms of travel accuracy and craft aesthetics. The industry’s big-name watches stand shoulder to shoulder, seizing the opportunity in the high-end complex mechanical watch market, and starting to compete with the international cutting-edge and world-renowned brands.

People in the industry know that the internationally renowned top brand Breguet also has a double tourbillon style: the movement uses two concentric tourbillons, the minute hand moves normally, but the hour hand is fixed on the bracket that connects the two tourbillons. The dial rotates once every 12 hours, and this model is priced at 300,000 Euros. Compared with the Breguet, the biggest difference between the two tourbillons of the Seagull Group is that the two tourbillons are centered and eccentric, both of which are synchronized with the escapement, and the effects of different tourbillons turning. Viewability is even stronger. Another important reason is that the price of seagulls is very close to the people, only more than 200,000 yuan, which is equivalent to a very simple Swiss top watch. For collectors, the cost of getting started with super complicated functions is much lower.

A lot of people are concerned: Is the structure of such a difficult design made by the seagull? Or is it like imitating a Swiss counterpart more than 50 years ago? I would like to talk about this issue that I am also concerned about.

I remember the 2008 Basel Watch Fair in Switzerland. When my colleagues and I dine together after the interview, I heard a shocking news: a Swiss first-line independent watchmaking company informed the organizing committee of the Baselworld Watch Fair The Property Rights Arbitration Commission filed a complaint, questioning Tianjin Seagull’s ‘Tour Tourbillon’, claiming that its key component ‘differential structure’ copied the company’s patented design. The arbitration commission immediately sent staff to the China Pavilion Tianjin Seagull Group’s booth and informed the Seagull Group in strong language, demanding that the Seagull ‘dual tourbillon’ watch be sent to the Arbitration Commission, and had the intention to investigate further. After receiving the notice, Tianjin Seagull Group immediately reported to the China Pavilion, and contacted the country to prepare the responding materials. After careful analysis by the Chinese pavilion, it is believed that the structure of this watch of Tianjin Seagull is completely self-designed and has applied for a ‘utility model patent’ in China. It can calmly argue to the Arbitration Commission. In the end, the arbitration commission invited several authoritative experts in the world watch industry to review the Tianjin Seagull ‘Tour Tourbillon’ watch, and concluded that the structure of the Tianjin Seagull ‘Tour Tourbillon’ watch in China did not involve violation of the Swiss company ‘Planetary’ Wheel ‘patent. The Arbitration Commission ruled that the infringement lawsuit by the Swiss company concerning the Tianjin Seagull Watch in China was rejected, and it was pleased that the Tianjin Seagull in Tianjin had won the case, which fully explained that the technical structure of the ‘Double Tourbillon’ of the Chinese Seagull Watch was completely designed by itself.

This shows: Seagull watches deserve to be a proud brand in the Chinese watchmaking industry!

I have carefully watched the first version of the double tourbillon of Seagull, which is a trial version with a stainless steel shell. The engraved pattern on the faceplate is a sunlight effect that diffuses outward from the seagull trademark at 12 o’clock. Very well set off the noble temperament of the seagull trademark. At 3 o’clock, the English words of double tourbillon and machinery are printed. The trademarks and hour markers are in rose gold, and the hands are blue burned blue, which has a classic charm that is handmade. Its back-through mode can observe the double tourbillon movement. The movement splint in this period is decorated with fish scales of round pearls, but because of the coating material, its gloss is relatively ordinary.

After that, at the Seagull Beijing press conference in 2008, I saw a second tourbillon with a limited edition of 100 in the second-generation platinum case, model ST8080GB. Compared with the first generation, it has made great progress: the shape adopts the classic shape of round watches and straight ears, and the face plate adopts the printing of Roman characters and valley pattern carving, and the retro charm is emphasized. The first-generation trademark was cancelled on the faceplate, and only the English names of the seagull and tourbillon were retained, making it more concise and outstanding. With the addition of a new widened alpha-type burned blue pointer, the overall visibility is enhanced. The modification of the first representative crown is also more conducive to the excellent feel when winding.

Looking over the back of the watch, it is shocking: If the first generation of polishing is only a very common pattern, this generation already has the style of a real top watch. The optically polished finishing in the form of concentric circles is reminiscent of the famous Patek Philippe 3939. The engraving of the text on the back frame increases the difficulty of manufacturing. The way of three-dimensional embossing is similar to the new German Lange process. I think this is what the manufacturer said after going to Switzerland to study. The overall feeling is more arrogant and unique of the top-level watch, and the craftsmanship of the details has been improved considerably. In my opinion, it may be more appropriate to add the independent serial number of the case and the movement part, and it is a favorite for collectors.

Erhaigull Group is an old factory with nearly 60 years of production experience. But for the design and production of top-level watches, and for how to make an appearance in the international watch market, the seagull is just like a newborn chick. Here, I also talk about some of the three complex styles of the Seagull Group:

First, how to reverse the cheap image of domestic brands in the eyes of the world. As a domestic watch brand, although it has been keeping up with international trends in design and production, it has maintained a certain quality and quality. But frankly, most Chinese still regard domestic watch brands such as Seagull as low-end brands. Can not compete with high-end Swiss brands such as Rolex, Omega and Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin. I have consulted many watch-loving players and collectors and agreed that the domestic brands of the old brands in the market have limited gold content. As collectors, I generally don’t like the price range of the brand in my hand is too wide: there are both cheap and practical series of several hundred yuan, and high-priced collection series of 100,000 yuan. In this way, the ‘noble, unique’ mentality of the collector’s collection cannot be satisfied. In this regard, it is suggested that the Seagull Group can refer to the practice of the Japanese Seiko Group: setting up multiple brands and series at different prices under the Seiko Group. Its expensive top-level series Guiduo does not hang the Seiko trademark, but uses its own unique trademark and name. In this way, the product line’s range from cheap to top-level has been handled well, and your unique top-level image has been well established. Let the world know that Guido is a very expensive and valuable brand. Similar examples of this kind are common in other companies: for example, the Lexus brand that the Toyota Group has set up specifically for top-tier cars. If the Seagull Group can set up a brand new brand for the three complex series, so that these three complex series have their own unique brand status and high brand value, it should be accepted by collectors faster.

Another point, the double tourbillon and other top series of the Seagull watch should be more detailed in the outer packaging and exterior decoration, and improve the grade. I have seen the leather straps used in the three major series, whose grades and craftsmanship cannot match the price of tens of thousands or 100,000. In fact, the best part of the more sophisticated American alligator can be used, hand-stitched, hand-edged, and sweat-resistant technology can be used inside, so that the effect of BMW with golden saddle. From the collector’s perspective, the outer box and manual of the Seagull’s top series also have considerable room for improvement. If the current leather box is replaced with a handmade solid wood watch box, which has a beautifully designed and exquisitely printed collection certificate, these packaging details will greatly enhance the brand’s image.

In addition, customizing the three major series of watches for distinguished collectors according to their needs is also a project that can be carried out. In the case of choice, there are several different face plates, different hands and different shell configurations, plus unique memorial lettering. These are ‘special services’ that collectors really want to get paid for. If the Seagull Group can carry out such customized services, the market development space is also infinite.

In recent years, many Swiss watch brands have actively increased their focus on the Chinese mainland market. This big country with the largest population in the world has great development potential for high-end cultural consumer goods. With a history of 54 years, after mastering the manufacturing capabilities of high-end technology, coupled with Chow Tai Fook Group’s capital and operating experience, it will be able to build a solid cornerstone, based on the local, international, and domestic and international markets with a sense of quality Soaring wings and writing a brilliant chapter.

Big Patek Philippe: Famous Brand Men’s Watch Model

Patek Philippe

Patek philippe, Chinese translation: Patek Philippe. Founded on January 11, 1851.

 The founder of Patek Philippe, Antoine Norbert de Patek, was originally a revolutionary who opposed the Russian rule in Poland in 1831. After the Polish Revolution failed, he fled to France, settled in Geneva, Switzerland, and started working in the watch industry. In 1839, he opened the Patek Watch Company. In 1844, Anthony & middot; Patek met Francois Czapek at an exhibition in Paris. At that time, Jane & Middot; Philippe had already designed pocket watches that were very thin, and did not use traditional spoons for winding and adjustment. This kind of pocket watch was much ignored at the exhibition, but Anthony & middot; Patek was deeply attracted to its new design. After a conversation, the two immediately reached the intention of cooperation. In this way, Jane & Middot; Philippe joined Patek. In 1851, Patek officially changed its name to Patek Philippe.

 Patek Philippe’s logo is a combination of the sword of the knight and the cross of the priest, also known as ‘Caldoraba cross’ Its origin is: In 1185, a Spanish city called Calledolaba was invaded by the Moors, the brave priest Raymond and the knight Digo & Middot; Bellas Keyes led the people in a desperate war of resistance, and finally Moore People drive away. The priest (cross) and knight (sword), together, become a symbol of solemnity and courage. This symbol represents the spirit of cooperation between Anthony & middot; Patek and Jane & Middot; Philippe. This factory logo has been in use since 1857. Patek Philippe has strict restrictions on the production of watches, each of which will not exceed 10,000. An ordinary Patek Philippe watch takes at least 9 months from design to shipment. For watches or pocket watches with special requirements, the design and production time can be as long as 9 years. Almost a century and a half from the establishment of the company, its total output is only 600,000. Boutique limited edition, Patek Philippe watch PatekPhilippe watch has a very high value-keeping function. In 1989, the commemorative watch produced to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the establishment of Patek Company, by the early 1990s, the value of the watch rose fourfold. A white gold diamond sun and moon perpetual calendar male watch produced by the company in 1953 was bought by a European buyer for 5.3 million Hong Kong dollars at the ’97 spring auction in Hong Kong. In 1999, a Patek Philippe produced in 1933 PatekPhilippe pocket watches were sold for $ 11 million in the United States.

Altitude measurement function

Oris Air Series 733 7705 4234 Watch Altitude Display
    The most noticeable feature of the Oris Air Series 733 7705 4234 watch is its altitude measurement display function, which measures the altitude of the wearer based on the high and low pressure of the wearer’s location. This function is very practical and necessary for outdoor, mountain climbing and aerial work. Moreover, the patented altimeter adjusts the crown at 4 o’clock, and the gray PVD screw-in stainless steel crown at 2 o’clock enhances the use of the watch’s altitude display function.

   4 o’clock patented altimeter adjustment crown

2-point grey PVD screw-down stainless steel crown

   The Oris Airline 733 7705 4234 is a watch created by Oris for the Swiss air rescue team, Rega. Starting from the actual needs of the pilot, the designer designed the world’s first aviation watch combining an automatic mechanical movement with an altimeter. The altimeter works by using the relationship between air pressure and altitude to measure the altitude of an aircraft’s flight by observing the air pressure. Of course, this is also specially designed for Rega. As one of the top air rescue agencies in the world today, it has a professional fleet consisting of rescue helicopters and ambulance planes. Rega often needs to face emergency rescue situations and needs Provide professional and fast emergency rescue services. This 733 7705 4234 watch has a built-in mechanical barometric altimeter, which can sensitively and clearly indicate the current barometric pressure and altitude, and can help pilots to work better when facing emergency rescue.

It is the first choice in outdoor and complex work environments. The inner layer of the strap is lined with red leather. I personally think this is the most attractive point in the design of the strap. The designer is not only very considerate using the cowhide material as a lining to enhance the comfort when wearing the strap. It also cleverly uses red to add vitality to a serious watch. The folding clasp is also made of gray PVD stainless steel, and the design is consistent with the case.
