Not The Richest Man In Xihong City Can Also Afford Three Moon Phase Tables Around 20,000 Recommended

As early as the 17th century, the regular movement of the moon phase was incorporated into the clock. The moon phase function is generally set in a special small window to display the profit and loss status of the moon according to a period of 29.5 days. In fact, the moon phase function is not very practical today, it just adds a touch of fun and elegance to the watch, so the moon phase function is more inclined to beautify the dial in modern times, reflecting personal taste. Today, the House of Watches recommends three moon phase watches to watch friends, the price is relatively close to the people, and you can enjoy the cloudy and sunny changes of the moon.

High-profile Street Tasting Richard Mill Rm 016 Diamond Watch

In 2007, Richard Mille launched the first rectangular ultra-thin watch-RM 016, to subvert the design of all previous models of the brand. The birth of RM 016 marks the beginning of a new era for Richard Mill. Today we are tasting a RM 016 red gold and diamond square automatic watch from Richard Mill. The high-profile autumn street, the stylish weapon you must have. (Model: RM 016 DIAMOND)

 
 This RM 016 automatic watch in red gold and diamonds from Richard Mills has a red gold case throughout and is decorated with diamond pavé. From the appearance point of view, it definitely does not belong to the type of ‘low profile.’ The rectangular case is more rigid than the round and barrel-type case, and the lines are more direct and clear.

The case diameter is 49.80mmX38.00mm and the thickness is 8.25mm

 
 It is said that the designer’s inspiration comes from motorsport and sailing, so you can see extremely modern lines from the design of the case and dial. The front of the case is equipped with 8 screw devices. This design not only adds the design sense of the model from the details, but also strengthens the model itself. The dial’s radiant white lines are coated with a luminous coating, and the sword-shaped hands also use this luminous coating.

Ultra-thin Watches: The Showdown Of The Ultimate Skills Of Top Brands

In the world of watches, steady and heavy or thin and light are always different choices. Although large-size heavy-duty watches became the new trend of watches, it is clear that ultra-thin watches that combine minimalist aesthetics and superb technology are more suitable for summer. Watch manufacturers have realized that thin and light models are more humane.
Hundreds of parts melt into millimeter space
     In some people’s opinion, it is an rude act to look at a watch while talking in business. The watch should be hidden under the shirt cufflinks and slide out silently, so as not to hang on other things. The reason for thin watches.
     Therefore, lightness does not mean that the content is exaggerated. On the contrary, many ultra-thin watches are now pursuing not only aesthetic minimalism, but also the innovation and technical excellence of mechanical materials. Ultra-thin watches are more difficult to manufacture than ordinary watches. It is not easy to put three-digit parts in a few millimeters of space, let alone ensure their normal operation. Ultra Thin watches are one of the sharpest factions in watchmaking. Only the best brands can stand on the stage of ultra-thin watch confrontation and win respect with refinement.
    Almost from the 1950s, there was an ‘ultra-thin contest’ between top watch brands. Generally speaking, mechanical watches, manual winding watches, the movement should be considered thin at about 2 mm, if the automatic winding, the movement grasped within 5 mm is very good. From 66 millimeters in 1550 to 2 millimeters around 1800, people’s research in precision and meticulous machining has made surprising progress. The world’s number one record is broken again and again, and no one can predict who will eventually win the product. Today, although the interpretation of complex functions such as the perpetual calendar and tourbillon has never been abandoned, the overall trend of the development of mechanical watches is still lighter, more accurate and thinner.
Hublot Ultra-thin Skeleton Watch
    For the first time in the history of the Hublot brand, an ultra-thin skeleton watch: a 45mm diameter dial with a homemade ultra-thin movement measuring just 2.90 mm thick. The completely hollow design concept shows the watch’s internal structure more clearly and intuitively under professional eyes, fully showing the balance between ultra-thin appearance and maintaining the brand’s dynamic fashion.
    With the grand launch of the Piaget Altiplano skeleton ultra-thin watch, it once again achieved two world records and raised the limit specification to a new level: the world’s thinnest self-winding skeleton watch (5.34 mm), equipped with the world’s thinnest Automatic winding skeleton movement (2.40 mm). Success does not come in a vacuum, thanks to Piaget’s unique expertise in ultra-thin mechanical movements for more than half a century before it can reach another peak.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Ultra-thin Power Reserve Display Master Series
    This ultra-thin watch adds a new technological innovation to the legendary reliability and minimalist look of the Master series-an extremely delicate manufacturing process. The 39 mm diameter case of the Master Ultra Thin Réserve de Marche series is an interpretation of the simplistic to the essence and its horological philosophy, without any extra embellishment on the case back or appearance.
    The Jaeger-LeCoultre 938 automatic movement possesses all the properties of an accurate timepiece, as well as a vibration frequency of up to 4 Hz and a 43-hour power reserve display. The watch has the well-known ruggedness of Jaeger-LeCoultre movements, while also complying with the requirements of the watch’s structural designer, keeping it as thin as possible, and finally achieving its wish, creating a movement with a thickness of only 4.9 mm. In this way, the watch assembler can fit it into a case with a total thickness of only 9.85 mm, which is also as thin.
    As one of the ‘four people’ of ultra-thin watches, Vacheron Constantin has left many records of slim watches since the 19th century, and reached a considerable technical level in the 1950s and 1960s. For example, the 1003 movement launched in 1955 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the brand, with a diameter of 21.10 mm and a thickness of only 1.64 mm, became the smallest mechanical movement in the world at that time.
    Probably no one will question Patek Philippe’s dedication and commitment to ultra-thin watches. This paragraph is a reinterpretation of Patek Philippe’s ultra-thin women’s Calatrava Ref. 4897 in 2009. Of course, R refers to this rose gold, and there are 72 top Wesselton round diamonds on the bezel. However, these are not enough to show its beauty-please flip the watch to the side, does it have a sharp feel like a blade? The Caliber 215 bracelet is only 2.55 mm thick, and the entire watch is only 6.35 mm thick.
    The 1966 series, which was first launched in 2006, is an ultra-thin classic series that contains the elegant image style and top technology level of the watch factory from the day of its birth. In the past 5 years, many ultra-thin watches have gained popularity. This year’s latest 1966 Palladium limited series uses rare members of the platinum family, palladium with excellent hardness and abrasion resistance as the carrier, and interprets the unique and thin temperament of the 1966 series. The simple and beautiful appearance design conceals the homemade GP3300 automatic movement composed of hundreds of parts; the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions are the date display and the small second hand, respectively.
    Compared with the simple route that most ultra-thin watches follow, Audemars Piguet seems to prefer the sword to go too far. As early as 1978, the first ultra-thin perpetual calendar watch with automatic movement was released. This year is even more so for the ultra-thin perpetual calendar of the Jules Audemars series, which pays tribute to the brand’s watchmakers. After perfectly accommodating all the complicated functions such as day of the week, date, month, moon phase, leap year display and so on, the thickness of the perpetual calendar mechanism is only 4 mm, which is amazing; the large and small dials are simple and convenient, and the instructions are more Is orderly and clear.

Classic Gold Watch Cartier Watch That Will Never Be Defeated

The charm of the golden watch is that it can show both taste and taste, and many watch factories and brands choose the ‘popular’ style of tourbillon when creating watches, so Cartier calibre The de cartier watch was born. 42 mm case, made of stainless steel and 18k rose gold, equipped with Cartier 1904-ps mc automatic winding movement. The silver-white dial is slightly pearlescent, with a unique combination of Roman numerals and geometrical luminous hours, which is the personality of gold.

Twin brothers on steel watch
 In the watch industry, when it comes to ‘popularity’, it is always inevitable to put a quotation mark. For example, in recent years, tourbillons have become popular. Watchmakers do tourbillons without knowing what to do; watch editors write tourbillons when they ca n’t think of a topic; customers buy other tourbillons when they do n’t think about it— In terms of production, tourbillon watches actually only occupy a small share of the entire watch market. Although it is popular, the product itself is never popular.
 Any product that can be popular is either a new thing that quickly disappears after infinite scenery, or a classic that never goes out of style. Although I am not an expert in the history of watches and clocks, I can also judge that gold watches are not in the former category. According to my personal experience on the auction floor, the earliest inter-gold watches can be traced back to the 1940s. It was the era when men’s watches were gradually shaped and the contemporary features of watches began to show. At that time, there were a large number of manufacturers of gold watches. Among them, the most influential and the most appreciable output was Rolex’s ref. 2940 small three-hand watch and ref.3372 large three-hand watch. They used Rolex’s iconic ‘oyster’-oyster case and ‘bubble back-‘ the back of the bubble back, plus the gold design that was later called ‘rolesor’ by the factory. It’s hard not to be a classic. It is very likely that it is precisely because of Rolex’s efforts that the gold watch is enduring.
 According to the thinking habits of modern people, it is easy for us to preconceive the gold watch as a combination of steel and gold watches, thinking that it will appear very late. However, in fact, the gold watch and the steel watch appear on the front and rear feet. They are all juniors of the gold watch. Even if they are related, they are only cousins, not father and son. Stainless steel entered the stage of history at the beginning of the last century. It was not patented and mass-produced until 1916, and it will take several years to make watches. Some people say that stainless steel is the greatest invention of the 20th century. It makes Europeans not have to eat rice even if they ca n’t afford silver tableware. Its significance is far better than today’s touch-screen mobile phones, android systems, and somatosensory games.

Cocktail theory
 Since the 1930s, stainless steel has begun to enter the field of watchmaking, to be precise, into the field of watch manufacturing, and pocket watches are permanently sealed in the memory of k gold. The transformation of stainless steel to watches is just like today’s high-tech ceramics. It is slow and firm, and there is a gradual process of adaptation. Compared with k-gold, which has a history of thousands of years of application, stainless steel is a completely new thing. It emerged from a rapidly developing industrialized society, lacking the nobility and luxury of nobles, and was replaced by the simplicity, high yield and cheapness of industrial products. People who are also in the process of industrialization have not neglected it because of this, but highly appreciated this novel and unique material. The huge advantages in terms of price and output eventually completely changed people’s aesthetics, and stainless steel also replaced k-gold, making it the material of choice for watches.
 In addition to the pure stainless steel watch, there is also a style of stainless steel and k gold material used to win praise. At that time, there was no so-called ‘assemblage’ concept in the clothing industry, and there was no sign of it. Therefore, we must not say that watches were influenced by the clothing industry. However, the popularity of the golden watch is not without trace. A beverage that is rapidly heating up in social occasions is regarded as having some kind of internal connection with the popularity of the golden watch. This kind of beverage is ‘cocktail’-a cocktail.
 Literally understand the meaning of ‘cock tail’. When people truncate the tail of a hybrid horse to make it look like a cock tail, the cocktail also has the meaning of a non-pure horse. Cocktails This mixed drink is also named after it. Prior to the 1920s, the word cocktail meant to ‘degrade pure materials with impurities’, which is by no means ambiguous; after the 1920s, the situation changed dramatically and people began to appreciate the processing Treated articles, artificial products with other substances added to natural materials are considered more fashionable. This concept has led to the popularity of artificial pearls, cosmetics and cocktails, and the awareness of gold watches has increased dramatically since then.

The temptation of real money
 As mentioned earlier, the gold watch has appeared more than half a century ago, and it is still one of the most popular varieties on the market today. Despite the continuous emergence of various high-tech materials in recent years, the style of Jianjin has continued to increase, especially in the Chinese market.
 Generally speaking, those who choose to use gold are all popular classics from well-known brands. That is to say, after a series of stainless steel models are launched, there is still potential to be tapped. The market gap left by the spread of the k-gold series. I don’t want to say that readers can guess that the most skilled companies that run this seemingly non-technical method are still Rolex. The same style and the same movement do not need to add any complicated functions. As long as the precious metal material is added, the grade of the product naturally increases by a ladder, but the price is much cheaper than the gold watch.
 I noticed that there is no corresponding word in English or French for ‘Jianjin Watch’ or ‘Jianjin Watch’. In other words, this expression method different from ‘gold and steel watch’ is original to the Chinese, as well as ‘gold and silver’ between gold and stainless steel, and ‘steel king’ with platinum in the outer ring of the case, which have Chinese cultural characteristics All the names are in accordance with the principles of Sindaya. The emphasis is on gold, not steel. Even if only a small amount is used, the gold watch is more inclined to gold watch in terms of aesthetics and connotation, and its value is by no means comparable to ordinary steel watches. This is probably the main reason for its popularity in the Chinese world.

 At present, the common gold watches on the market are still those brands: Omega, Rolex, Cartier, Longines, Tudor, plus new models launched by TAG Heuer and Raymond Weil These works are all self-winding models, with complicated functions but annual calendars. The pricing is basically below 100,000 yuan, which is suitable for matching with less casual clothing. Although not necessarily designed for the Chinese market, the Chinese will definitely be tempted when they see it. If you’re still hesitating about choosing a day watch, you might want to check out the style you like.

Second Precision & Constant Jump Second Richard Lange Jumping Seconds Technical Information Supplement

Precision in seconds
Recently, the first batch of Richard Lange Jumping Seconds platinum 950 watches have been delivered to Lange global stores and retailers. This model was launched at the 2016 Geneva Watch Fair and is limited to a total of 100 pieces. Lange re-interprets the fascinating scientific astronomical watch with the classic hour-clock dial, seconds jumping device, constant power escapement system and zeroing device.

Lange pocket watch with seconde morte device and RICHARD LANGE JUMPING SECONDS
For ten years, Richard Lange has represented a growing watch collection. The Richard Lange series appropriately changes the traditional scientific observatory of Lange to make it keep pace with the times. It is named after the eldest son of Ferdinand Adolph Lange and pays special tribute. Born in 1845, Richard Lange inherited his father’s business and transformed the latest observations in contemporary physics, chemistry, and mathematics into many innovative technologies. All the patents obtained by him can be reflected in the pocket watches carefully made by the watch factory.
Richard Lange Jumping Seconds was launched in January 2016, adding a watch with the Lange classic pocket watch function to the collection. The newly developed L094.1 self-made movement is equipped with the seconds jumping complication (aka seconde morte) and is equipped with Lange’s patented constant-power escapement. This device uses the switching power of the seconds jumping device in the gear train to provide new energy for the permanent spring of the constant power escapement. In a separate gear train between the barrel and the escapement, a constant power unit compensates for the dwindling energy of the spring. This allows the watch to maintain constant torque and stable amplitude during a power reserve of up to 42 hours.
The reset device allows the watch to quickly and smoothly synchronize with the time signal. The silver-gray chronograph dial features a striking second ring on the top, lined with a platinum 950 case with a diameter of 39.9 millimeters. There is a small window at the intersection of the clock circle and the second circle, which is displayed in red ten hours before the power of the watch is exhausted, reminding the wearer to wind the watch.
The inside of the movement is carefully modified by hand to meet the strictest Lange standards, while the wearer can watch the movement through the sapphire crystal back cover. The five-pointed star-shaped part is responsible for controlling the jumping seconds device, which is placed under the transparent sapphire bearing and runs among the mirror-finished end parts. In addition, the hollow part of the 3/4 plywood can also allow the wearer to watch the permanent spring of the constant power escapement, and the lever, hairspring and clutch of the zero reset device are also clearly visible.
Constant jump seconds
Under Richard Lange Jumping Seconds’ simple and flawless chronograph dial, three major technical features are hidden: the seconds jumping device that makes the watch famous, a constant-power escapement system that ensures stable power, and a zeroing device for resetting the second hand . Understanding these three characteristics provides a basis for a deeper understanding of the structure of the Lange L094.1 self-made movement.

RICHARD LANGE JUMPING SECONDS and Lange pocket watch with seconde morte device
Jumping seconds device
The seconds jumping device has been a tradition of Lange for almost 150 years. In 1867, Ferdinand Adolph Lange, a pioneer of Saxony watchmaking, created pocket watches with a seconde morte device. The pocket watch has a large sweep seconds hand that clearly divides a minute into 60 steps. The second hand can be started and stopped, but it cannot be reset to zero. The son of Ferdinando Adolf Lange, Richard and Amy, innovated the system and patented their device mounted on a 3/4 splint in 1877, entitled ‘Second Movement with Jumping Second Device’ ‘.
Richard Lange Jumping Seconds, launched in January 2016, has a similar operating principle to the original: in this long-established device, the jump seconds are controlled by a jerky long lever and star gear, which converts the amplitude of the balance 6 times per second into The second hand jumps forward by one tick.

Modern jumping seconds
A star gear running under a transparent ruby ​​bearing is connected to the escapement mandrel and rotates along the axis with the escape wheel every five seconds. Every second, a corner of the star gear loosens the tightened lever, creating what the watchmaker refers to as a ‘jump.’ The lever rotates 360 degrees instantly and is stopped by the next corner of the star gear. This series of actions makes the second hand move exactly one space.

Lange’s own L094.1 movement
Constant power escapement
The mainspring has a large initial torque but a weak torque at the end. However, Lange has been relentlessly searching for a solution to this difference. Lange has developed four different constant power transmission systems, including the sesame chain transmission system, which was introduced in 1994, and three different constant power escapements.
The constant power escapement in Lange 31 maintains the same torque every ten seconds for 31 days; Zeitwerk uses a powerful mainspring to advance the digital disk instantly every minute; and constant power in Richard Lange Jumping Seconds The escapement system device performs two major functions: to compensate for the gradual weakening of the mainspring barrel, and to prevent the amplitude from decreasing when jumping seconds. This device uses the switching power of the jumping seconds device in the wheel train to provide new energy for the permanent spring of the constant power escapement, which can be enjoyed through the window of the wheel bridge. In a separate gear train between the barrel and the escapement, the constant-power escapement compensates for the gradually decreasing energy of the spring. The constant spring of the constant power device gives the escapement a constant torque, thus ensuring that the watch has a stable amplitude during the 42-hour power reserve. The free-swinging hairspring is made by Lange Watch Factory, like the permanent-moving hairspring. It co-ordinates with the cam fixed balance wheel to ensure stable speed.
Zeroing device
The return-to-zero device was first assembled in the Sax-0-Mat movement in 1997. It is now improved and is mounted in Richard Lange Jumping Seconds. It is equipped with a clutch consisting of multiple discs. Its function is to use a high moment of inertia to stabilize the operation of the large second hand, especially in the sudden start and stop phase when jumping seconds. The clutch also separates the wheel train when the reset second hand returns to zero.

RICHARD LANGE JUMPING SECONDS
After the crown is pulled up, the complex lever system starts three programs in an instant: the stop spring is gently pressed against the balance wheel to fix it, and the clutch disc is separated by the clamp lever to separate the connection between the second hand and the train.
Reset the hammer to the heart-shaped cam to advance it and the second hand to the zero second position. When the crown is pushed back to its original position, the second hand is reconnected to the wheel train, and the balance wheel is unfastened and re-swings immediately.
