Blancpain Limited Valentine’s Day Watch 2018

   The dial background design of this new watch pays tribute to Valentine’s Day full of tenderness and romance. On the white sky of mother-of-pearl, 19 gorgeous flash diamonds and 4 rubies are brilliantly cut with a star-shaped logo. The stainless steel case has a diameter of 29.2 mm, the bezel is set with 48 diamonds, the two lugs are set with a total of 20 diamonds, and the crown is decorated with a brilliant rose-shaped diamond.

This gem setting process requires a metal base to insert the gem into the surface of the disc. The delicate and unique sapphire moon phase disk is tilted to the 6 o’clock position, which is the first of its kind in all Blancpain watch collections.

   The moon phase disk is trimmed with thin strokes, and the opening and closing are slightly rounded. This typical female ‘Moon Beauty’ smiley is a comedic parody of the traditional moon phase of Blancpain-there is a moving beauty mole on the corner of the mouth of Moon Phase. Flies, then called mouche, were fly-shaped spots. At that time, women in the court would draw a beauty mole on the face in response to the admirer, and the meaning changed with different positions. As a complication in the craftsmanship of haute horlogerie, the moon phase was almost lost. It wasn’t until the early 1980s that Blancpain reintroduced it to the stage of timepiece production. Since then, the beautiful Moon Face has become a Blancpain brand logo.

Blancpain Limited Valentine’s Day Watch 2018

   The shape of the monthly cycle on the dial of this new watch reflects the deep roots between the timepiece industry and astronomy. The moon phase on the dial is synchronized with the profit and loss of the moon phase in the real sky. Its mechanical device consists of a 59-tooth gear, which is equivalent to two complete 29- and a half-day moon phase cycles. This explains why the gear drives a week and the moon phase appears twice on the dial. The minute and hour hands resemble sage leaves, and the second hand is shaped like Cupid’s arrow.

High-precision technology

   The new Valentine’s Day watch is equipped with an internal 913L automatic movement. This movement is equipped with a balance wheel equipped with gold fine-tuning screws, and an antimagnetic silicon hairspring. This material was recently introduced into the watchmaking industry, bringing several important advantages that are beyond doubt. First, because of its low density and lighter weight, silicon has a stronger seismic advantage. Secondly, its advantages against magnetic field intrusion cannot be underestimated. The hairspring made from this is not only perfect in shape, but also effectively synchronizes with the movement’s isochronous function, which further improves the accuracy of timing.

   The sapphire glass back of the watch also hides a mysterious design that only the wearer can appreciate: the rhodium-plated gold oscillating weight is inlaid with a heart-shaped pattern penetrated by a ray of sunlight and an arrow of love . The new 2018 Valentine’s Day watch with red alligator leather strap is limited to 99 pieces, each engraved with a unique limited number.

Light Hollow Is Not Enough To See Patek Philippe 5180/1r

The 240 movement is now a well-established and well-known family of family members. It includes everything from basic functions to complex functions. However, if you choose it from the perspective of the ‘Appearance Association’, the 240 SQU first launched in 2008 The movement should be the most beautiful 240 movement in many people’s hearts. In 2017, in order to celebrate the 240th anniversary of the movement, Patek Philippe launched a new rose gold version equipped with this hollow movement, with its gorgeous and exquisite craft figure, Once again caused the coveted feelings of collectors in the market.

Feature one: change to rose gold
The version launched before 5180 was white gold, and the addition of a rose gold version after a few years was not only a series of generations, but also regarded as Patek Philippe’s intentional celebration of the 240th anniversary of the movement. The dial of the watch can clearly see the hollow support ring that connects the movement to the case. The support ring not only shoulders the supporting effect, but it is also designed as 12 spoke lines and can also be used with the pointer as a time mark. The blackened lancet is matched with the gold dial / movement. It inherits the contrast effect of the previous platinum and blue steel hands, so that the wearer will not be lost in the movement’s beautiful gold carving when reading Visual appeal.

In addition to the supporting part of the case and the movement, the supporting ring is also located at the 12 o’clock position.

Feature 2: 240 SQU movement is also time consuming
The reason why 5180 is highly respected is that it further ‘artifies’ ultra-thin movements, not only for hollowing out time-consuming and labor-intensive movements (for 240 SQU movements, it only takes Week), Patek Philippe also carved beautiful carvings by hand on the surface of the remaining support plate after hollowing out. This 5180 / 1R engraving pattern is mainly composed of vines and spirals. At the same time, the clockwork box on the front of the movement The bridge can also find the brand’s symbolic decoration that is cleverly integrated into the Carrejohua cross. After the hollowing out process, the man-hours spent on the engraving process of the movement also exceeded 130 hours. This shows the depth of Patek Philippe’s intention.

The thickness of the 240 SQU movement is only 2.53mm, and the overall thickness of the case is only 6.7mm. It is commendable that this model has also undergone hollowing and engraving, which is twice as difficult as the production of ordinary ultra-thin watches.

Feature three: PP mark rarely appears here
Turning to the case back, in addition to enjoying a wide range of penetration and superb gold carving techniques, this 5180 / 1R has a new look because of the lack of a complete substrate. PP marks are rarely engraved on the On the micro-automatic plate, this also means that while the watch is focused on sensory enjoyment such as thinness, lightness, transparency, and beauty, it still does not forget to strictly require its overall quality or must reflect the high level of watch production.

The ultra-thin plus engraving may cause the movement of the movement to be unstable in general impressions, but the 5180 / 1R still passed the check of the PP mark and was rarely engraved on the micro-automatic disc.

Calatrava Ref. 5180 / 1R

18K rose gold material / 240 SQU self-winding movement / hour, minute display / sapphire crystal, transparent case back / waterproof 30 meters / diameter 39mm / reference price: 651,300 RMB
