Zun Huang Classic Hollow Watch

Classic Hollow Watch (97SK.6.194.21 / 97SK.6.394.21)
    The 41mm diameter Hollow classic hollow watch has a 36mm diameter movement space, which can fully present the complex operation of the hands in the watch. The vibration frequency is 18,000 swings per hour, which guarantees the accuracy of the watch and has a power reserve of 46 hours. This watch is available in 18K gold and rose gold 18K gold. The sapphire mirror surface not only presents the motion most clearly, but also is shockproof and wear-resistant. The pointer shape and sound of movement emulate an early emperor’s pocket watch at the Emperor’s Museum. This pocket watch of the 1920s, as a representative of a few minimalist hollow-out watches at that time, showed its unique imperial power.

Girard-perregaux Becomes Member Of The Jury Of The Geneva Haute Horlogerie Awards

The annual ‘Geneva Haute Horlogerie Awards’ (GPHG for short) is known as the ‘Oscar’ of the fine watchmaking industry, and can be called the highest honor creator in the industry. The 14th Geneva Watch Awards will be held on October 31, 2014 at the Grand Theatre in Geneva.

   This year’s GPHG has more than 300 brands and watchmakers competing to compete for the 12 most prestigious, authoritative and influential awards in the global fine watch industry. With the promotion and development of the fine watchmaking industry, GPHG’s requirements for the review team have become more stringent. This year’s 24 members of the jury are composed of collectors, retailers, experts and professional media from various fields in the world. Among them, with its supreme status and superb craftsmanship in the Swiss watchmaking industry, Swiss watchmakers GP Girard Perregaux was also turned into an expert judge by the biggest winner of the 2013 – Golden Pointer Award, providing a wider range of expertise and independent thinking for the GPHG awards selection process.

GP Girard Perregaux Fine Watchmaking Constant Power Escapement Won 2013 GPHG Gold Hand Awards

   Looking back at the ‘Geneva Haute Horlogerie Awards’ in 2013, GP Girard-Perregaux won the Aiguille d’ Or award for its watchmaking industry’s highest constant gold escapement. The Constant Escapement watch is hailed as ‘the greatest invention after the tourbillon’ and represents the highest achievement in watch accuracy to date. It surpasses the tourbillon, homogenizes multiple oscillators with a differential, surpasses two resonance effect oscillators, surpasses an oscillator installed in a vacuum environment, and may also surpass a high-vibration movement. GP Girard Perregaux’s constant-power escapement is the first watch that truly achieves direct control over the quality of the heart beat.

   All escapements revolve around a core ultimate goal, which is precision. For a movement, there are too many interlocking factors that affect the performance of precision. It simply transmits power from the barrel to the pendulum. In terms of wheel stability, the constant power device has been an important key used to assist in adjusting the escapement transmission power since ancient times. The mainspring is the power source of a movement. The torque when the mainspring is fully tightened is different from that when it is half-tight or nearly loose. Therefore, the power performance of the entire movement is transmitted to the escapement according to the drive train Dynamic conditions have changed drastically, and this dynamic instability has been one of the difficulties in watchmaking for the past five hundred years.

   The so-called constant power escapement is mainly used to solve the problem of uneven energy output. When the watch is fully chained, the power output performs better, but when the power is gradually weakened, its torque to the wheel train will be Decrease, so that all the connected gear trains from the barrel to the next will become weaker in operating performance, which will also cause the balance amplitude to decrease. No matter how the escapement structure has changed in the past, the body has not deviated from tradition. Only Girard-Perregaux’s constant dynamic escapement has broken the established model and concept, which is definitely a big step in the watch industry.

Girard Perregaux esmirada three golden bridge tourbillon pocket watch celebrates 125th anniversary of Paris World Expo

   History is strikingly similar. 125 years ago, on September 29, 1889, Girard-Perregaux was also awarded the supreme honor of the time-the World Expo Gold Medal for its remarkable achievements in the tourbillon escapement. The reason why the three-gold bridge tourbillon pocket watch named ‘Esmirada’ was not only the breakthrough three-gold bridge structure gave the tourbillon artistic beauty, but also the three-gold bridge tourbillon No one can match the accuracy of a pocket watch, and even for a long time no record can be broken.

   Time has passed quietly for 125 years, history goes up and down, and tide turns. GP Girard Perregaux’s innovation has never stopped.

Lange Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar White 18k Gold

The perpetual calendar display of Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar is neatly arranged near the time display, and all the information is clear at a glance. This masterpiece is now available in its latest model with a plain white 18K gold case and grey dial.

LANGE 1 TOURBILLON PERPETUAL CALENDAR white 18K gold
   Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar is paired with two classic and complex installations, combined with the unique design of Lange’s famous series. The perpetual calendar device consists of a large Lange calendar, retrograde week and leap year displays, and an external month ring. The time and date are clearly displayed and all information can be easily read at a glance. All perpetual calendar displays can be advanced instantly. The perpetual calendar device did not need to be adjusted for one day until 2100. The moon phase display set in the small seconds dial only needs to be corrected by one day after 122.6 years.

   The lettering below the 12 o’clock position implicitly signals the presence of the tourbillon. The sophisticated technology of the tourbillon can be seen through the sapphire crystal caseback. The movement is equipped with Lange’s patented stop-second device. After the crown is pulled up, the balance wheel in the tourbillon frame stops immediately, which is safe and reliable, and ensures that the watch setting is accurate to the second. The top of the tourbillon frame is polished in black, which is the most complicated and time-consuming of many manual surface treatments. The tourbillon frame’s bearings feature a diamond end stone to pay tribute to the long-established Lange 1A pocket watch.

   The central part is made of 21K gold with a solid center automatic dial and a platinum 950 centrifugal wheel on the periphery, which effectively tightens the spring of the L082.1 automatic winding movement, which increases the watch’s power reserve in a short time To 50 hours.

Hollow Watch A Window To Observe The Subtle Beauty

Hollow watch symbolizes the watchmaker’s self-confidence in the aesthetics of the movement. The structure of the mechanical watch is completely exposed to the viewer, combining the tough style of mechanical metal and the refined romantic feelings. , As if entering a wonderful micro-world. Hollow watches require watchmakers to carefully polish every detail of the movement. The energy expended is by no means comparable to ordinary watches. Collecting hollow watches requires more than just money, it is a long wait. Next, I will introduce several hollow watches for everyone.
Patek Philippe Complication Chronograph 5180 / 1G-001 White Gold Men’s Watch

 This watch uses an ultra-thin self-winding hollow-out mechanical movement with a thickness of 2.53 millimeters. A 22K gold mini-rotor is mounted on the movement substrate. The complex and beautiful carved patterns show the extraordinary production process of Patek Philippe. The see-through hole uses the brand logo Calatrava cross star pattern to express the brand culture in the details.
Vacheron Constantin Malte 30067 / 000R-8954 skeleton tourbillon watch

 The barrel-shaped case of the Maltese series can be described as the classic image of the brand, and the configuration of the hollow and tourbillon makes this watch a more classic level. The skeletal movement has a moving beauty every second. The Maltese cross of the tourbillon tells you clearly its name-VACHERON CONSTANTIN.
Blancpain Villeret 6633-1500-55B manual winding skeleton watch

 This is one of the most beautiful watches in the eyes of Xiaobian, and it seems to have been on the cover of many watch magazines. Does this represent everyone’s affirmation of this watch? The movement is equipped with a titanium balance wheel, a winding spring and three barrels connected in series, ensuring a power reserve of up to eight days. The 38 mm diameter case is made of white gold with a built-in hollow movement, exquisite decoration and exquisite carving. It is clearly visible through the sapphire crystal mirror and the case back, as if dancing in the air.
Audemars Piguet Millenary Millennium 26354OR.ZZ.D088CR.01 Chalcedony Chalcedony Tourbillon Watch

 The skeletonized movement is matched with a chalcedony motherboard with a diamond-set rose gold outer ring, which is slim and gorgeous. After chamfering, bright surface polishing, straight-line polishing, and matte polishing, it has a soft finish.
Piaget Altiplano G0A37132 skeleton ultra-thin watch

 This watch uses the world’s thinnest mechanical movement, only 2.40 mm thick, and various details are used in the decoration: the main splint is decorated with frosted sun radiation pattern, the gear set is decorated with frosted ring decoration and solar radiation , Engraved with the Earl’s family crest, matte brushed sun radiation decorative decorative bridge and so on. In terms of visual effects, this watch does not seem as gorgeous as the previous ones, but its thin selling point also makes it one of the skeleton watches worthy of remembering by the editors.
 Since the hollowing out and carving processes are all done by hand, there will be slight differences between each watch, which makes each watch unique in the world. Would you like to pay for this unique one?

Breitling Aviation Chronograph 8 Chronograph Black Steel 45,800 Is Available In Wangfu Central Flagship Store

With the ribbon-cutting ceremony held the other day, Breitling’s first flagship store in Asia has begun to open. Soon after the new store opened, we visited here in Beijing’s Wangfu Central. According to the clerk, there are more than 200 Breitling masterpieces covering the entire series in the new store, including the latest new series of aviation chronograph 8 and limited edition timepieces, which are all on sale. It also includes the popular aviation chronograph 8 B01 chronograph and the second generation of the fiery marine culture. It can be said that this time is a good time for friends who love brand watches. Let’s take a look at the more special Breitling Aviation Chronograph 8 chronograph black steel among the new products:

   Black steel (Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coated steel) is not a new material made by adding carbon to steel. Instead, a black film with a carbon structure is added to the surface of the steel material. The purpose is to increase the corrosion resistance of the steel and protect the watch to a certain extent. In addition, after the steel material becomes black, it brings a refreshing visual impact. It looks more unique and beautiful, leaving a deep impression.

   The 43 mm black steel case is equipped with a two-way rotating bezel, and the wearer can easily calculate the short time interval by simply rotating the time scale on the bezel to the appropriate position before or after the hands. The ratchet-type rotating outer ring has a total of 60 grooves, and each groove represents a minute scale.

   The chronograph button and crown are located on one side of the watch. They are also made of black steel. After detailed processing, the operation feel is superior. The crown is engraved with the brand “B” logo, and the surrounding is made of non-slip texture, making the central time and calendar adjustment easier and more convenient.

   Compared with the steel model, the black steel chronograph looks more pure, because the case and the dial are more similar in color. Showing the overall aesthetic characteristics. The Arabic numerals and the central hand are coated with luminous parts, so you can watch the time even in a dark environment. The two time dials are placed at 12 and 6 o’clock respectively, and the small seconds dial is placed at 9 o’clock, which ensures that the seconds are visually displayed when the timekeeping function is not used. At 3 o’clock, the day of the week and the calendar display window give the watch a practical function.

   Like other aviation chronograph 8 chronographs, the watch is screwed into the bottom to ensure internal safety. It is equipped with the Breitling 13 type movement certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (COSC), and is automatically wound with a one-way ball bearing rotor, with a power reserve of more than 42 hours.

   The rich black leather strap with beige stitching at the end is beautiful and easy to wear.

   It is equipped with a pin buckle, also made of black steel, engraved with the Breitling English logo and LOGO pattern.
