“The Year Of Er Li” China Shenzhen Watch & Clock Exhibition

What should the Chinese watch fair be like? Watch enthusiasts who are concerned about the watch industry may know SIHH Geneva International Watch Fair, BASEL Basel International Watch & Jewellery Show. What you may not know is that China also has its own international watch exhibition. Recently, the 30th China (Shenzhen) International Watch & Clock Fair was held in Shenzhen as scheduled. Today, the Shenzhen International Watch & Clock Fair and the ‘Year of Era’, the Watch House has also been to Shenzhen for many years and participated in the feast of Chinese watches and clocks in this hot land. What exactly do we Chinese watch exhibitions look like? Then look down.

Inside Shenzhen International Watch & Clock Exhibition Hall

The 30th Shenzhen Watch & Clock Fair was held in Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center

   The full name is China (Shenzhen) International Watch & Clock Fair (CWCF), which is the largest professional watch and jewelry exhibition in Mainland China. It was founded in 1988 and has been held for 30 consecutive years. It is well-known for its comprehensive, organizational specialization and internationalization.

The 30th Shenzhen International Watch & Clock Fair will be held from 6.20-6.23

   Since 2010, the China Watch Association and Shenzhen Watch Industry Association have reached a consensus. The China (Beijing) International Watch Exhibition and the China (Shenzhen) International Watch Exhibition are integrated into one, fully integrating domestic and overseas resources, and perfectly interpreting China’s only domestic market. International large-scale professional watch exhibition and international watch fashion trading platform.

The opening ceremony of the Shenzhen Watch Fair

Visitors to the exhibition

    The Chinese have not formally entered the modern watch industry for a long time. In this century-long history, we are more drawn from Western watchmaking culture and can be used for our watch skills. But until now, Swiss watchmaking has occupied the top spot in fine watchmaking. Our Chinese local brands are still following the people-friendly route. From the perspective of positioning and route, Chinese watchmaking and Swiss watchmaking are fundamentally different.

 Young people visiting watch exhibitions this year show an upward trend

Consumers who watch watches carefully at the Porsche booth

   What is the difference between the ‘thirties’ Shenzhen watch exhibition and the ‘twenties’ Shenzhen watch exhibition? ‘Rejuvenation’, ‘Product refinement’ and ‘Facing pain points’ are the biggest differences in my experience this time.

I. Rejuvenation
  In fact, the rising trend of young consumer groups in luxury and high-end consumption did not start in the past two years. Some research studies show that the consumption power of the younger generation in China is catching up with the ‘post-60s’ and ‘post-70s’, but this is only the result of data display and survey research. We are more likely to be middle-aged in the watch market People-oriented group. At this year’s Shenzhen Watch Fair, there were significantly more young faces coming to watch the show.

Young people outside the Fiyta booth

Young girls in front of the Dickies booth

   What attracted these fresh faces? Of course, fun, novel, and youthful products can attract these young people here.

Venue layout of Marvel elements

Hello Kitty is more attractive to girls with a girly heart

     In the layout of the pavilion, Fiyta’s aviation theme this year has made a good fusion with the flying murals in Dunhuang, China. It is also more lively and younger than the previous arrangement.

Aviation Elements in the Fiyta Pavilion

The flying pigeons representing the brand culture have also joined the aviation element design

   In addition to the youthfulness of the venue layout, the products launched by the brand also cater more to the aesthetics of young people. Including more ostentatious design, practical performance and price that is more acceptable to young people.

The design of ROMAGO is mainly based on the square case and large-diameter design.

The design of Fiyta aviation watches is inspired by aviation

Beijing Watch launched a replica military watch this year, priced at 1,980 yuan

Women’s Watches

Conceptual female watch from Porsche
    Rejuvenating and focusing on the female market is a key point in this year’s national watch trend. The prices of these watches are relatively close to the people. This is one of the reasons why it is more attractive to young people.
Second, the product is more detailed
   The term product refinement is also very well understood. I have been to foreign watch and clock exhibitions, because most of them are mainly mechanical watches, so in the product details, we have done a better job in China. At the Shenzhen Watch & Clock Fair, you can not only see brand pavilions of different styles and positioning, you can also see showcases of accessories such as mechanical movements, watch bands, mirrors and so on.

Smart wearable products have also become a highlight of the Shenzhen Watch & Clock Fair

Miota movement exclusively for Citizen

   If the main venue is the “battlefield” of the mainstream domestic watch brands, then the watch accessories of the subsidiary hall will become more attractive to consumers and investors interested in the accessory market. Due to its unique geographical environment and political policies, Shenzhen’s handicraft manufacturing industry is more developed than other regions in China.

Exhibitors introduce their products to consumers

Targeted and selective watch exhibitions are also the choice of many people

This year’s main push for women’s watch series

    In terms of product refinement and direction refinement, Shenzhen Watch Fair’s performance is impressive. Regardless of the concept of the brand or the planning of the watch exhibition itself, these exhibitors and consumers, as well as those who visit the watch exhibition, have provided relatively great convenience. This allows us to find what we are looking for in the exhibition more quickly and easily.
Facing pain points
   This is the most profound point I felt at this exhibition. The ‘pain point’ euphemistic expression is to face our shortcomings. First of all, there must be a congenital deficiency in the Chinese watch industry. Our history of entering the modern watch industry is still too young compared to Western countries. Advanced watchmaking technology and professional watchmaking talents lag far behind abroad. These are the places we still need to improve and chase, and at this exhibition, I heard a neutral, fair and free voice.

Shenzhen Clock and Watch Fair held forum activities on different topics

Independent watchmakers also set up a special display area at the watch exhibition

30th Anniversary Celebration

   Among the forum speakers on these different topics, the president of the Watch Association, the pioneer of the wearable device industry, and the media people freely expressed their opinions. Regarding the development of Chinese watches and clocks, the person in charge of the Watch and Clock Association told us that in addition to ‘watches’, we have greater advantages in ‘clocks’ and the potential for development may be broader; when it comes to wearable devices, this is not entirely In the area of ​​horology, industry pioneers said that maybe everyone on the road in the future will wear smart products that bring them convenience …

The venue center also has a live broadcast room

   Facing the pain points and speaking for the present and future of Chinese watches and clocks, instead of ‘smugly complacent’ with some small achievements, this made me see the hope of Chinese watches and clocks. More and more people are paying attention to Chinese watches and clocks precisely because we are beginning to realize the shortcomings, constantly improve, and constantly optimize our products and mechanisms.

Shenzhen International Watch & Clock Fair with full media coverage and live broadcast

   In the past, when people talked about national watches, many people might talk about ‘feelings’. This is also a point I once made. At the time, I simply thought that the development of national watches only left ‘feelings.’ But today, at the Shenzhen Watch Fair, which I was standing, I saw a lot of things beyond feelings. I saw the possibility, hope, and future. This is the result of the joint efforts of Chinese watchmakers. Maybe we started late, but I am proud to say that we are working hard and we will move towards a better tomorrow.

Luminor Submersible 1950 Series 47mm Professional Antimagnetic Magnetic Titanium Watch

The new Panerai SUBMERSIBLE professional diving watch with a soft iron inner case creates a highly antimagnetic effect. The case thickness has been reduced by more than 10% compared to previous models, highlighting the technological achievements of the new P. 9010 movement.
 The new Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanium is the latest model of Panerai’s first antimagnetic watch. The new P.9010 automatic movement is equipped with a three-day power reserve. The design has been advanced due to the reduced thickness of the case, making some details of the dial more perfect.

 Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanium 3 day power reserve automatic professional diving anti-magnetic titanium watch construction guarantees excellent anti-magnetic performance, up to 40,000A / m (amps / meter), than the Swiss Watch Industry Guidelines (NIHS 90-10) The level prescribed by international standards is eight times higher. It is possible to achieve such extraordinary protection performance thanks to the special inner shell of soft iron, forming a Faraday shield, which isolates the movement from the magnetic field flow. The soft iron inner shell is just below the dial with the same material. The anti-magnetic design is not only used in extreme environments, but also in daily life-the electricity and current generated by daily necessities such as computers and mobile phones, which often expose watches to magnetic fields. The relevant magnetic field can seriously affect the operation of the watch and even cause the movement to stop rotating. The new Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanium 3 day power reserve automatic professional diving antimagnetic titanium watch effectively cancels obvious magnetic interference. The classic Luminor Submersible case is made of matte titanium, covered with a soft iron inner case, and the bridge is locked with a chain crown to help achieve a water resistance of 300 meters.

 The new model is unique and shows its unique personality: the matte black ceramic disc is embedded in a rotating titanium-inlaid bezel, which is inlaid with a graduated scale to calculate the dive time. The bezel will only rotate counterclockwise to avoid disturbing the calculation of the dive time due to unexpected shocks. In addition, this new Panerai watch is equipped with the P.9010 self-developed movement, equipped with two extraordinary functions, which are extremely useful: the balance wheel balance device allows the watch to accurately time, and the quick-adjustment device allows the hour hand Beating back and forth in one hour units will never affect the operation of the watch.

 The black dial of the Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanium (PAM01389) has a date display at 3 o’clock; the small seconds dial with blue Panerai hands is set at 9 o’clock Clock position, with a white linear luminous coating hour scale, ensuring excellent visibility at night and underwater. The scales, indicators and graduations are coated with Super-LumiNova®, which is easy to read even in the dark environment. At night or underwater, the 12 o’clock inlaid scale on the minute hand and bezel emits a dazzling blue light, replacing the traditional green glowing scale, which is always clearly readable and accurate in calculating the dive time. The watch has a black rubber strap with a trapezoidal matte titanium buckle.

Montblanc’s New Baoxi Series Watches: Elegant And Charming Pioneering Advanced Complex Watchmaking

Montblanc introduced the brand’s exclusive patented external tourbillon for the first time to a new watch for women’s watches, giving the Baoxi series a new connotation, bringing a feminine charm and authentic style to modern women.
 Following the successful launch of the Baoxi series perpetual calendar watch and the Baoxi Yueyuan series watch, Montblanc introduced the patented external tourbillon independently developed by the brand watchmaker into the ladies’ watch for the first time. A stylish modern woman.
 Montblanc’s new Baoxi collection incorporates femininity and elegance into fine watchmaking. Traditional crafts such as engraved corrugations, precious stone inlays, micro-engraving, and hand-drawing all make the dial delicate. The curved lugs with multifaceted cutting, the carved onion-shaped crown and the brilliant bezel set with diamonds further demonstrate Montblanc’s superb skills and ingenuity. The design of leaf-shaped hands, floral Arabic numerals, rose gold-plated dot minute scales and hour scale inner rings also shows that Montblanc’s quest for the ultimate detail has penetrated into the creation of every Baoxi watch. in.

 Modern Baoxi women enjoy pursuing their own style, so Montblanc has carefully equipped the new Baoxi watch with a replaceable strap device, so that every Baoxi woman can change the strap as long as she presses the button without any tools. Among them are classic black alligator leather straps and gorgeous calfskin straps. Replacing the strap is as easy, simple and convenient as changing a dress, so that women in the city can create their own fashion taste.
Montblanc Bohème Ultra Tourbillon Slim Watch and Montblanc Bohème Ultra Tourbillon Slim Jewelry Watch
 The Montblanc Bohème external tourbillon ultra-thin watch perfectly blends the exquisite charm of a modern woman with self-confidence and fearlessness in high-end watchmaking, displaying the ‘Bao Xi spirit’ to the fullest. Montblanc has also introduced its MB M29.24 patented external tourbillon automatic winding mechanical movement for the first time to women’s watches.

 This one-minute external tourbillon movement has been researched and designed by Montblanc watchmakers for more than three years. It is equipped with complex patented structures such as quick stop seconds and a miniature pendulum.
 Compared with the traditional tourbillon device, the external tourbillon device has better performance. The weight of the frame is separated from the balance wheel, and the weight of the frame is extremely small, which effectively improves its accuracy and isochronism. The balance wheel has a diameter of 9.7 millimeters. It is set with 18 screws, of which 14 are fixed and the other 4 can be adjusted. This detailed design allows the external tourbillon device to perform better, continuing the foundation of the pure watchmaking tradition. In order to further improve the accuracy of the watch.
 A barrel that provides a 48-hour power reserve is built into the main splint. In order to ensure the best balance between the barrel and the oscillating weight and balance wheel, Montblanc’s watchmaking workshops have carried out high-level research and development and testing to set the optimal position of the barrel in the movement structure.

 Montblanc MB M29.24 external tourbillon automatic movement with a new miniature rotor. Unlike the traditional oscillating weight which usually covers half of the movement, the miniature oscillating weight makes it possible to see the beauty of mechanical movement through the transparent sapphire crystal case back. The entire device is only 4.5 mm thick, which is a remarkable thickness for a mechanical movement with such a complicated process.
 The red hand on the tourbillon frame is used for the second hand indication, and has a practical quick stop function. The function of the device is closely related to the design of the brake lever. The brake lever can stop the large screw balance and the 18 screws on the balance and can be restarted when needed. To get the right end of the brake lever, the designer delved into the best geometry and dynamics, allowing the wearer to set the time precisely to the second while ensuring that the movement can be restarted immediately. The quick stop seconds device can stop the balance wheel instantly, instead of stopping the tourbillon frame, so it can prevent the balance of the balance wheel from affecting the accuracy when the tourbillon frame is stopped. All functions and operations are controlled by the crown at three o’clock.

 This Montblanc self-made innovative movement is also decorated with a design that represents the highest level of watchmaking craftsmanship, presenting an elegant style and extraordinary craftsmanship: the bridge and the miniature oscillating weight are engraved with the ‘en éventail’ Geneva wave pattern, and the rod-shaped top The flywheel bridge is mirror-polished, the main splint is satin-finished, and the splint below the micro-rotor is decorated with sunburst.
 Montblanc’s new Bao Xi series watches reflect the brand’s attention to detail everywhere in the design: Montblanc Bo Xi series external tourbillon ultra-thin watch silver and white mother-of-pearl dial engraved with exquisite corrugated; Montblanc Bo Xi series The external tourbillon ultra-thin jewelry watch is set with 144 top Wesselton diamonds (approximately 0.531 carats) in the center of the dial. Both watch bezels are set with 58 top Wesselton diamonds (approximately 1.39 carats), and the new 38mm diameter rose gold case is only 9.37mm thick, creating a slim and elegant feminine charm.
 The curvaceous floral Arabic numerals, the exquisite hour scale inner circle and the luxurious rose gold dot minute scales also make Montblanc’s new Baoxi series watches more unique and unique.
 In addition, Montblanc’s new Baoxi series external tourbillon ultra-thin jewellery watch is equipped with a replaceable strap device, and is equipped with a variety of colorful calfskins such as coffee brown, apricot yellow orange, poppy red, island blue or turquoise Strap.
 In order to ensure the top quality and outstanding performance of the watch, the above two Baoxi series watches have passed the rigorous ‘Montblanc Lab 500 hours quality test’.

Female Chinese Heroes Patek Philippe 7150/250r-001 Women’s Watch

Since Patek Philippe launched the first manually wound chronograph watch 7071 specially designed for women in 2009, it has been 10 years since then. This watch has been produced until 2016. This year, Patek Philippe brought The newly designed 7150 ladies watch has a completely different case than the previous one, and a more beautiful dial. It presents a unique and outstanding artistic experience for women who love machinery. The 7150 has the style of a men’s classic chronograph watch, and the thin shell elements make her a little more delicate, the diamond setting is more pleasing. The 7150 watch gives a new image to the chronograph watch loved by extraordinary women.

   The elegant 38 mm diameter rose gold round case replaces the previous pillow case with a bezel set with 72 diamonds. Exquisite vintage details highlight classic, stylish designs, such as beautifully curved grooved lugs, round chronograph buttons with hand-engraved patterns, and rounded “box” sapphire crystals.

   The silver-white dial also combines modern fashion style with classic craftsmanship aesthetics, and the Breguet hour and minute hands carved in rose gold make the dial clear and easy to read. The pulsometer scale of the watch can help the owner to control his heartbeat. It seems to be a control of a very dynamic modern life and a tribute to the tradition of classic chronographs.

   The compact case is equipped with a hand-wound Caliber CH 29-535 PS movement with a 30-minute jump-jump chronograph, which incorporates six patented innovations in its classic structure. Through the box-shaped sapphire crystal caseback, you can admire its exquisite decoration. The shape of the casetop perfectly matches the contour on the back of the bezel.

   The new Ref. 7150 / 250R-001 is the only chronograph in Patek Philippe’s existing women’s collection. Shiny mink gray alligator strap with rose gold pin buckle set with 27 brilliant diamonds.

   Who said that women’s watches can only show their appearance, independent women know how to appreciate the fascinating mechanical rhythms in mechanical watches, and also enjoy the warmth that the craftsmen give to watches.

Long Power Is The Last Word

Over the past ten years, the power reserve of mechanical watches (PowerReserve) has gradually increased, although this trend is slow but firm. The long power reserve is simple and convenient, once considered a feature, and it is becoming more common today.

   For a long time, mechanical watches usually had a two-day power reserve. At that time, most people only had one watch and wore it every day, so the short power reserve was not a problem. At the time, the watch and the movement were small in size, and there was not enough room for a large-capacity spring, so it was difficult to achieve a long power reserve.

Grand Seiko 9S65 caliber has a power reserve of up to 72 hours
   For most of the 20th century, watches with long power reserves were rare. LeCoultreCalibre124 is one of the few examples. The movement has an eight-day power reserve and was produced in the 1930s and 1940s. It is supplied in small quantities to brands such as Patek Philippe and Cartier. On May 14, 2014, a Patek Philippe with Calibre124 movement sold 93,750 Swiss francs at Sotheby’s. In 2005 and 2009, two Cartier tank watches with Calibre124 movement were sold at Sotheby’s and Christie’s for 84,000 Swiss francs and 99,000 Swiss francs.

   In the early 2000s, the long power reserve suddenly became popular. Several manufacturers, including Patek Philippe, IWC, Parmigiani, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Chopard, launched movements with a power reserve of one week or more. Most of these movements are manually wound, and Calibre 5000 movement of IWC is a special case. At that time, the watch equipped with a long power reserve movement was very special, and the watchmaker described its advantages in the press release. For example, in 2000, Patek Philippe launched the Ref. 51000 ‘Devil’s Fish’ watch to commemorate the new millennium, which is equipped with a newly developed Calibre 28-20 / 220 movement with a power reserve of up to ten days.

   Interestingly, the gradual increase in power reserve coincides with the popularity of “big” watches (the standard diameter of men’s watches increased from about 35 mm to 40 mm and above). The larger case provides more space for the movement and fits longer springs. There are also watches with power reserves that are beyond practical use, such as the Lange (A. Lange & Söhne) with a 31-day power reserve, the Rebellion T-1000 with a 41-day power reserve, and 51-day power. Reserve Hublot Ferrari watches.

   A month or longer power reserve is a special case, but a long power reserve is very practical and will become more common. The standard power reserve of modern mechanical watches is still 48 hours. The next three days or longer, a power reserve sufficient to spend the weekend will become the norm. One reason is convenience. Today, watches have evolved from practical instruments to personal accessories or luxury goods, and it is common to have multiple watches. Alternating wear requires repeating the winding and adjustment operations, except for automatic watches placed on the winder.

   Once a complex timepiece with a calendar function is stopped, it is particularly inconvenient to recalibrate, especially those calendar watches with multiple buttons. The new-generation GrandSeiko movement all has a 72-hour power reserve and is specially designed and developed. The watch owner can remove the watch on Friday and not have to wear it all weekend. When work started on Monday, the watch was still running and no adjustments were required. The three-day power reserve is extremely convenient and is likely to become the new standard.

   Thanks to technological advances, it is possible to achieve a three-day power reserve even for relatively affordable watches. Advances in metallurgical technology have made springs thinner and more flexible, so that barrels of the same specifications can store more energy. This is important because the increase in watch case size has stagnated, and the average diameter of men’s watches is about 39 mm to 42 mm.
   Without changing the size or architecture, a number of well-known modern movements have achieved power reserve upgrades. The new-generation Calibre L951.6 movement in the Lange Datograph watch has a power reserve of 60 hours, which is higher than the original 36 hours. The same is true of the Hamilton H-21 movement, which is an improvement on the Valjoux 7750. The Valjoux 7750 movement can operate for 42 to 44 hours, while the H-21’s power reserve is 60 hours, a 36% increase.

   The popularity of silicon parts (especially in escapements) also helps to improve the power reserve because it means a reduction in friction losses. For example, silicon components (and other improvements) extend the power reserve of the Patek Philippe Caliber 240QP movement by 50%. The Cartier IDTwo concept watch has a power reserve of 32 days despite its unusual size (42 mm). This watch has several features, including a frictionless escapement, a vacuum case, and the most interesting four small springs made of fiberglass (coated with parylene). Perhaps the only drawback of this progress is that it makes watches with a power reserve of seven or eight days from novelty to ordinary. (Photo / text watch home compiled by Xu Chaoyang)

Extreme Art Clock Making Knowledge Introduction

More compact
 Since the design of magnificent large-scale clocks in the Middle Ages, watch technicians have continued to make every effort to reduce the mechanical structure of the clock to make it more compact. In 1929, Jaeger-LeCoultre took an important first step in this field, launching the world’s smallest movement at the time, the & mdash; & mdash; 101 movement (Figure 1). So far, this movement is still not available. Beyond, still maintains the world record for the smallest movement, and is still being produced and assembled. The movement has a total of 74 parts (currently 96 parts), 14 mm in length, 4.8 mm in width, 3.4 mm in thickness, and a volume of only 0.28 square millimeters. The volume of a standard thimble is about 1 square millimeter. You can see it. In the following years, the watchmaker challenged a new goal: to make the world’s thinnest movement! In 1955, Vacheron Constantin launched the ultra-thin movement, numbered 1003 (Figure 2), produced by Jaeger-LeCoultre, and launched a engraved version in 2010. However, the slimline re-launch this time is completely Produced by Vacheron Constantin, with a thickness of only 1.64 mm, it is the world’s thinnest manually wound movement. The world’s thinnest self-winding movement is the 12P movement (Picture 3) produced by Piaget in 1957. It is only 2.3 mm thick and has been included in the Guinness des Records. , Its gear train is almost thinner than hair.

Lighter

 (Jeger-LeCoultre) The Jaeger-LeCoultre 101 movement is not only the smallest movement in the world, but also the lightest movement: it weighs less than 1 gram. And Richard Mille’s new model RM 027 (Figure 4) is the world’s lightest finished mechanical watch: including the strap, its total weight is less than 20 grams. The tourbillon movement is made of titanium and patented alloy LITAL & reg; which is a lithium alloy containing aluminum, copper, magnesium and zirconium, which is mainly used in the aerospace field. It is the use of high-tech lightweight materials that make large movements (30.2 X 28.8 X 7 mm) as light as wool and weigh only 3.83 grams. The case is made of composite carbon, which is light and sturdy, so the entire watch (excluding the strap) weighs only 13 grams, making the wearer feel light and comfortable!
More ambitious

 The Panerai (Panerai) Radiomir & ldquo; Egyptienne & rdquo; watch (Figure 5), designed for the Egyptian navy soldiers in the 1950s, is undoubtedly the most magnificent round watch in history. In 2009, the brand launched a re-engraved style with a matte titanium case with a diameter of 60 mm, which is equivalent to the diameter of a 33 cl can, and only a strong and powerful wrist can match it! Regardless of the timeless classic watch, looking at the ‘alien’ models that have emerged in recent years, we should firstly introduce the DeWitt WX-1 concept watch grandly launched by DeWitt in 2008 (Figure 6), its inspiration From the post-modern literary genre ‘Steampunk’ (Steampunk), the watch can be opened like a drawer. When opened, the watch has a length of 15 cm and a width of 4.9 cm. It is just like a modernist art treasure, also known by experts The ‘talking piece’ (artwork showing my own style) was very popular as soon as it was launched.

More complicated

 The most complicated function of clocks is the Patek Philippe Calibre 89 movement (Figure 7). This movement displays 33 different time-related functions with 24 hands, including Easter date display (Easter day is different every year), sunrise and sunset display, and leap year display. This movement is carried in a pocket watch with a diameter of 9 cm, a thickness of 4 cm, and a weight of 1.1 kg. Only four pocket watches are produced, which is precious and luxurious. The watch with the most complete display function should be the Hybris Mechanica & agrave; Grande Sonnerie watch (Figure 8) by Jaeger-LeCoultre (Figure 8). This watch was launched in 2009. One of the masterpieces of timing. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Trilogy masterpiece brings together 55 complications, and this watch already has 26 complications. Its Jaeger-LeCoultre 182 floating tourbillon movement, consisting of more than 1,300 parts, can provide loud or crisp ringtones at the same time; it also has a flyback perpetual calendar display with time equation. From now until 2014, Jaeger-LeCoultre plans to launch 30 sets of trilogy masterpieces, each set for sale in a 1-ton safe.

More depth

 With its Hydro Challenger watch (Figure 9), Bell & Ross has become the world record holder for watch depth. This watch is filled with a transparent fluorinated oil called Hydroil & reg; which can withstand an atmospheric pressure of 1110 bar, which is 1110 kg per square centimeter. It was included in the Guinness Book in 1997. However, this feat, which can only be achieved in the hyperbaric chamber, is overshadowed by Rolex’s pioneering pioneering masterpiece. It was Rolex who invented the ‘screw-in’ crown and officially launched the first waterproof watch in 1926. Later, Rolex named this flagship series Oyster. In 1960, Rolex was determined to break the watch’s water-resistant depth record, specially created an oyster watch (Figure 10), and installed it on the deep-sea observation submersible Trieste d & rsquo; Auguste Piccard, and dived with it. The Mariana Trench reaching 10,916 meters. The watch withstood up to one ton per square centimeter of pressure, and eventually returned to the surface intact, making the industry amazing.

 From a mechanical point of view, the watch structure consists of three major parts: the power mechanism (spring barrel), the transmission mechanism (gear train) and the speed regulation mechanism (escapement). Finding the best solution for each of these institutions is exactly what the watch technicians will always deserve. For example, the latest research and development achievements in the field of escapement (composed of balance wheel, escapement fork and escape wheel) have once again greatly improved the accuracy of watches. Most existing escapement vibration frequencies are 3 Hz or 4 Hz, or even 5 Hz, which is 36,000 times per hour. Breguet is unique, making its Type XXII model (Figure 11) a vibrating frequency of up to 10 Hz, or 72,000 times per hour. The second hand advances one division every 20th of a second (almost invisible to the naked eye), and is the smallest unit of time that a mechanical movement can measure so far. TAG Heuer has taken a different approach and set about improving friction and energy consumption. The newly introduced Pendulum concept table (Figure 12) replaces traditional hairsprings with four magnets. The magnetic field formed by the magnets converts linear power into curved power of the balance wheel swing, which is unique! However, the problem that remains to be solved is the effect of temperature on magnets.
