Introduction To Audemars Piguet Offshore Chronograph

At the 2011 SIHH in Geneva, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore has launched a new chronograph. Since the introduction of the Royal Oak Offshore series in 1992, the case size has been the focus of controversy. Today, these three watches are re-emerging with a 44mm diameter oversized case.

 There are three new Royal Oak offshore chronographs, which use steel, forged carbon and rose gold as the ring material, while the bezel and crown are all made of black ceramic. In addition, the rose gold and forged carbon models use a black & ldquo; M & eacute; ga Tapisserie & rdquo; checkered dial, while the steel models use a white & ldquo; M & eacute; ga Tapisserie & rdquo; checkered dial.

 The new watch eliminates the Arabic numerals, making the dial look simpler and more capable. Compared to this, the more important change is the timing button. The new type cancels the original round button design, and uses a more powerful rectangle, which makes the hand feel more comfortable and the visual effect is more prominent. The button itself uses a double-layer structure, divided into upper and lower bases that come in contact with your fingers. The button bridge is exquisitely sandblasted and matte polished and polished. The four screws used to fix the base also add a bit of domineering to the watch.

 The classic octagonal bezel and eight titanium screws still appear in their original positions. The small second dial with a more restrained color is located at 12 o’clock, the 30-minute chronograph dial and the 12-hour chronograph dial are located at 9 o’clock and 6 o’clock, respectively. The date display and AP logo are set at 3 o’clock.

 The new Royal Oak offshore chronograph is equipped with Audemars Piguet’s 3126/3840 self-winding movement, which was developed on the basis of the 3120 movement. The movement uses horizontal to horizontal balance wheel bridges to optimize the shock-proof effect. The adjustable weight balance with eight small weights keeps the movement of the movement continuously stable. And it has the function of instant date change and quick adjustment, and has a 60-hour power reserve.

Pointer Game Big Three, Little Three And Normal Pointer

There are many styles of watches now, and a large number of new watches appear every year. Whether it is a new choice of watchmaking materials or a change in the function of the movement, it is trying to bring new surprises, and As the focal point of condensed eyes on the dial, those long and short hands will naturally not be overlooked. In recent years, the more avant-garde time display method is to discard the pointer and choose a window-type time display, but the current mainstream on the market is still the pointer indication. As far as the three-pointer is concerned, no matter how it changes, there are three forms that cannot be escaped: the large three-pointer, the small three-pointer and the standard pointer. Regarding these three forms of time display, I believe that many people who do not know about watches will have doubts, so this time we come to know what these three terms are saying.
Simple and practical-junior pin

   The hour, minute, and second hands all exist and share a dot. This is the junior hand. And we say that the three-hand watch usually refers to those basic models that only have the time indication function, plus the display calendar at most.
The junior pin looks the most common. It can transmit time information more efficiently and clearly without color or even scale. The junior pin is a very efficient, effective and classic graphic information symbol.

Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5227 watch
Patek Philippe combines the iconic appearance elements of the Calatrava series with the official watch model, and launches the new alatrava Ref. 5227, which is a unique masterpiece of case manufacturing technology. The case is made of 18K gold and has a diameter of 39 mm. The classic Calatrava silhouette is shaped by the curved lugs. The most unique feature is its transparent cover, which is equipped with a separate dust cover that is almost completely invisible with hinges. The viewer only needs to open the bottom cover to immediately understand that this small hinge can only be completed by a craftsman with top skills. The same is true of the grooves on the side of the case. These trims extend all the way to the lugs and set off the slim curves of the case. The grooves are all carved by hand on the gold case. They are polished like other case parts and are as smooth as mirrors.
More watch details: This Glashütte 39-59 is a favorite for many people. The simple round dial design with a simple three-pin design is simple and elegant. The white dial with blue steel hands does not know how many people have ‘poisoned’. The outer ring is Glashütte’s signature orbital minute scale, and the central second hand with the Glashütte double G logo at the end of the second hand is particularly eye-catching.
More watch details: The small third hand is a round dot shared by the hour and minute hands, and a separate small disc is created for the small second hand to show the movement of the second hand separately. That is, based on the original two-hand watch, a small window is opened for the second hand. The small three stitches are also called short three stitches and two and a half stitches.
When referring to the small three stitches, many propaganda words will mention the word ‘retro’. This is actually because the small three stitches need to appear before the large three stitches. Judging from the history of the development of watches and clocks, the wristwatch is derived from the performance of the watch. In the design of the watch, the second hand is installed on the four wheels, so the earliest second hand is in the position of the four wheels, not on the axis This is the small three-pin. Later, the technology improved, and there was a junior needle. Today’s small three-handed hands have more fashionable taste, and the small seconds dial with changing positions can provide more choices for everyone.

The loyalty of Panerai’s historical classics series continues its historical origins, and the perfect integration of elegance and refined temperament is the characteristic of this finished watch. The watch size is a classic 44 mm diameter. The refined and simple dial adopts a sandwich sandwich structure, and the upper plywood is hollowed out to form corresponding numbers and signs, which makes the dial excellent in readability and bright luminous effect. Black and refined dial, elegant bar scales, Arabic numerals, and 9 o’clock small seconds dial display. In addition, the watch has a power reserve display and a depth of 300 meters.
More watch details: I believe that many people are unfamiliar with the three-needle and one-line standard needles. Compared with the previous two, the standard needle models are relatively few. When you lift the three-pin, one-line timekeeping, it is related to a specific pendulum clock. The main use of such pendulum clocks is to allow watchmakers to set precise time in their watchmaking workshops to test the accuracy of smaller timepieces; on the other hand, they are also used in scientific research, As an extremely accurate time measurement standard. To facilitate reading time, the hands are arranged on different axes of the dial: in the center is a separate minute hand occupying the main position, while the hour and second hands are smaller and placed off-center.
   For more than 200 years, precision pendulum clocks have been an essential tool for all watchmaking studios and observatories to record standard time. These pendulum clocks use the large disc on the surface to indicate the minute scale, the small disc at the top to indicate the hour mark, and the small disc at the bottom to indicate the second. When adjusting the timepiece, you must be able to see the movement of the second hand on the pendulum clock, and your sight must not be obstructed.
   Therefore, the display method of the hour, minute, and second hands on the dial is called the standard hand. Watches with this time display are rare, but this unique style is still loved by many people.

    Jaeger-LeCoultre is very honored to announce the start of in-depth cooperation with internationally renowned movie star Zhao Wei at the opening of the film festival. Zhao Wei will appear as a brand friend in a series of global gala events. Zhao Wei appeared at the world premiere of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new dating series women’s watch with an intellectual, elegant and noble image, which perfectly matched the essence and beauty of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s female timepieces.
Rendez-Vous Dating Series The Combination of Creation and Creativity
    This is a date for women and time. Let time move with you. Jaeger-LeCoultre presents a new watch series for women: the dating series. It is not only a high-end watch, but also the incarnation of a free-spirited personality; it can bring more surprises by combining as you like. The movement of this watch is carefully made by the watch factory. Behind the precise operation is the innovative spirit of the Jaeger-LeCoultre workshop. It is not so much a watch as a date with time, a mental attitude.
    The dating series inherits the essence of the brand and was born in the cradle of Swiss haute horlogerie-Vallée de Joux. It is far from the hustle and bustle of the city and there is no fast pace of life here. It brings together Jaeger-LeCoultre’s exquisite craftsmanship over the past 179 years and becomes a true watch treasure: it transcends the limits of time and completely conquers it. Every part of it is meticulously crafted, and its quality is full of charm: every detail is the best example of the combination of technology and aesthetics.
    Its soft breath penetrates into every detail of the outline. The case perfectly matches the dial, creating a stage for the mechanical movement to show its rhythm. The self-winding movement is completely designed, manufactured and assembled by Jaeger-LeCoultre, using a guilloché pattern hand-crafted using the purest fine watchmaking traditions and incorporating day / night displays. The diamond-set bezel reflects every moment it has experienced, and time flows quietly under its aura.
    The dating series echoed the 2009 encounter between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Diane Kruger, which came out to pay tribute to the personality of this famous actress. She is born with beauty and looks at the world. Every move has inspired the female world of Jaeger-LeCoultre. The beauty and sophistication of female timepieces are revealed in every beat of the mechanical structure that drives these watch masterpieces without any compromise. As a ballet dancer, fashion model, actor, or simply as a woman, Diane Kruger is full of confidence and ideas in every moment of her life. She continues to reshape herself without losing grace. And noble temperament. The same is true of Jaeger-LeCoultre women’s timepieces that have written the history of Jaeger-LeCoultre and witnessed the brand’s extraordinary creation.
    The date is clearly displayed, but is the beautiful pattern of guilloché patterns, the shining light of diamonds and the soft waltz of day and night fascinating? Every woman has her own answer … However, what sets a dating watch to stand out is not just one detail. No one can resist its charm. Inspired by the art deco style of the watch factory, the series is available in two diameters of 29 mm and 34 mm. The rose gold or stainless steel case is decorated with exquisite hand. Digital time scales blend the brand’s craftsmanship and innovative spirit, conveying respect for the 1930s. What drives the watch’s rhythm is a flawless self-winding mechanical movement whose oscillating weight and outstanding details are clearly visible through the sapphire crystal case back.
    Dating watches are like women’s appointments for time. It is like the player of simultaneous light, grasping every moment with enthusiasm. It is accompanied by charming self-confidence and calmness every day.
    Jaeger-LeCoultre has always had a special complex for female timepieces, both in appearance and mechanical structure. This tradition can be traced back to the first small diameter circular movements, such as the LeCoultre 7HP movement created in 1880. The watch equipped with this movement is decorated with enamel painting and inlaid with diamonds or pearls, usually worn on the neck Above. Watches appeared in the 19th century. Before being accepted by men who have long loved the elegance of pocket watches, the first watches were worn by women, which is the exact opposite of the widely-held idea. The sleeveless long skirts prevalent in the government and Empire eras exposed arms and wrists, suggesting that jewelers should wear jewelry in these areas. Some jewelers think of decorating with mechanical watches. As a result, the first watches came into being, and they needed to be individually customized in a way exclusive to jewelry. Today, elegant, sophisticated, self-contained, and shocking dating collections have become a new interpretation of women’s timepieces.

Chopard 2014 Basel New Preview Grand Prix De Monaco Historique Chrono Chronograph

The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique chronograph is a true racing watch in terms of material, function and color. The latest design and matt titanium case, new yellow color and racing strap pay tribute to Formula One antique racing cars. Powerful and reliable, technical and comfortable, this watch is designed to be a complete navigation instrument.

   The Chopard brand has been the sponsor and official timepiece of the Monaco Antique Car Competition for 7 consecutive times. On May 10th and 11th, 2014, the roar of Formula 1 antique cars such as Lotus, Cooper or Lola will be heard in Monaco, with the help of Ferrari, Bugatti and other antique cars. According to tradition, the Chopard brand launches a chronograph for antique car races held every two years. This year, Chopard decided for the first time to develop a new watch series called the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique (Monaco Antique Car Competition). The chronograph will be the first model of this series to be introduced first.

New look
   The case has a new ergonomic design, and the lugs are more tensioned. Its diameter is widened to 44.5 mm. The dial has been completely redesigned, with grooves engraved, just like the vibrating rod device at the turn. The hour-marker ring looks like a brake disc. The arrow-shaped hour markers are coated with super-fluorescent paint, using the new features of the Chopard classic racing series. The most striking part is the new apricot-colored countdown dial, which sounds the alarm for riders who are speeding at over 250 km / h at the exit of the Monaco Tunnel. In fact, the classic event was a test of energy, danger and smoke. The Formula 1 races of the 1930s and 1970s each had their own powerful cars, without anti-skid devices and without guidance systems. Their brakes and suspensions belonged directly to another era. The cockpit made of aluminum screams like the V8 of the Brabham series, hung high on a steep suspension, and must be able to read the watch time as freely as at the rest station.

Light and sturdy enough to stand any test
   Technology must serve the needs of the driver, whether it is for a car or a watch. The Chopard brand strictly demands its impeccable functionality, in addition to having a strong and unique appearance. It is this mutually restrictive relationship between shape and function, appearance and inner (if there is lead gasoline) that has shaped the characteristics of the 2014 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Chrono. The anti-slip function of the chronograph button made of titanium comes from its large engraved surface, imitating the racing piston. The dial uses contrasting colors to improve readability. The chronograph section uses yellow hands, and the hour, minute and second hands are coated with black fluorescent paint. Everything at a glance on the silver or black dial. Lightness and sturdiness are essential to the car, and are easy to operate and use. The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique chronograph meets these two elements, using a fine-grained titanium case. The bezel and caseback are made of polished steel. The back cover is engraved with the logo of the organizer, Monaco Racing Club.
   The driver’s seat in the cockpit is a prime requirement for safety and comfort. Unlike the racing four-point seat belt, this watch features a titanium folding buckle and a black calfskin strap with large perforations and yellow stitching, imitating the style of the 1960s racing. An optional NATO woven nylon strap is also available. With black as the base and yellow as the ribbon, it has the style of a Ford GT40 or Shelby Cobra Daytona. The integrity of the opening is also a necessary condition for driver safety. The titanium crown is screwed in and protected by a particle-polished shoulder guard. Finally, the reliability of the engine determines the ranking. If broken before reaching the finish, even the best cars driven by the best drivers won’t help. Chopard uses an automatic chronograph movement that has been tested for reliable performance. Its travel time accuracy has passed the test of the famous COSC Swiss official observatory.
   The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique chronograph is a true racing watch in terms of material, function and color. This is not nostalgia, nor old wine in new bottles, but real contemporary creation. Learn and pay tribute to the legendary Formula One features, always ready to go.
