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.

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.

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.

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.

    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.
