Not Only Smoking And Drinking, But Also Riding And Rocking The Watch

Smoking, drinking, and burning your head seem to be a way of life that is not accepted by mainstream society. But this is the favorite of a cross-talk artist in the Quartet. Speaking of this, I believe many people have already guessed his name. He is the teacher Yu Qian who is unique in the music industry by virtue of these three hobbies. But what you don’t know is that in addition to smoking, drinking, and burning your head, Yu Qian also loves rock, horseback riding, and of course, playing table.

 
 The name of the vice-chairman of the Rock Association, Yu Qian seems to be incompatible with cross talk performer Yu Qian. But in addition to standing on the crosstalk stage, Yu Qian’s favorite is the rock scene. He used to show in a variety show that he has loved rock since he was a teenager, and has also formed a band. Think about the age of the teacher. Born in Beijing in 1969, when Cui Jian was so hot in the 1980s and Chinese rock had its own era, it influenced people like Yu Qian.

 
 Some time ago, such tidbits also appeared at the scene of the shooting of the advertisement. Teacher Yu Qian held a puppy as a guitar-the spirit of rock is not dead.

 In addition to rock, the most we see on Teacher Qian’s personal Weibo is that he is always on the racetrack. Not only riding on his own, but also bringing his friends in the entertainment circle. Here, the sharp-edged watch editor has seen Mr. Sun Yue wearing a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona series white plate on the racetrack. The combination of the tattoo of Mr. Sun’s arm and Daytona is not what we often say about diving. Table master ‘standard’? It seems that every ‘puppet’ on the crosstalk stage has an unruly soul and a free heart in private.

 Speaking back to Teacher Yu Qian, as an actor, he has starred in many movies we are familiar with and even box office champions, including ‘sewing machine band’, ‘wolf 2’ and other well-known movies and TV series. The watch on his wrist also changed with the change of identity in the play, including during the ‘Sewing Machine Band’ movie road show, he also wore different watches according to different dresses.

Summary: The relaxation of Teacher Yu on the stage has a lot to do with his way of life. If you like it, go for it. You don’t need to pay attention to the label that others originally gave you. Who says that comic artists cannot sing rock and roll, and who says that comic artists cannot tattoo? So it’s most important to live a comfortable life.

It’s More Than Just A Watch

Proud of its rich 165 years of precision German watchmaking craftsmanship, Glashütte Glory has launched a limited edition watch-‘Observation Watch 1911-Julias Asman’. This extraordinary timepiece, limited to 25 pieces worldwide, was hand-finished in the Glashütte watchmaking factory to serve as two pioneering pioneers-Mr. Julias Asman and Roald Amon Mr. Mori pays tribute. Observation table 1911-Julias Asman
    Mr. Julias Asman founded watchmaking at the age of 25 and was one of the four founding fathers of the watchmaking industry in Glashütte. Pocket watches, ship clocks and observation watches made by Mr. Julias Asman and his staff have laid an important foundation for the company’s reputation. Especially the watch is famous for its extraordinary precision and outstanding craftsmanship. Mr. Roald Amundsen ordered many Julias Asman watch watches before embarking on his voyage to study history, one of which was Ball Young, a young watchmaker in the town of Glashütte. Wei produced in 1907/08. This watch produced by Lowe was extremely accurate, and he was urged to send it to the German Navy Observatory in Hamburg for testing. The German Naval Observatory is an official agency that tests and certifies the accuracy of chronographs produced in Germany. It was there that Mr. Roald Amundsen discovered the watch and bought it in 1910. On December 14, 1911, the Norwegian polar explorer and his expedition team became the first people to reach the South Pole in the world.
    Observation tables, also known as ‘nautical charts,’ are used by navigators to confirm the ship’s position in the sea as accurately as possible, along with ship clocks and other instruments. Ammonsen must have made good use of his watch when sailing the polar ship Fram to Antarctica; after his expedition departed from the Framenham base in Whale Bay, he observed The time of the watch becomes the only criterion: set an observation watch as the time of departure, and use it as the same function as the ship clock. Set another observation table as the destination time, and the time difference between the two can use the method of spherical trigonometry to calculate the position of the expedition’s route to the South Pole. Of course, the use of a compass and sextant is also indispensable. As a result, Amundsen’s watch was extremely important for his expeditionary mission: without them, he would never reach his destination, let alone win for Norway. Today, at the Fram Museum in Oslo, there are many documents showing the historic expedition, including an observation table produced by the town of Glashütte used by Amundsen. The dial is clearly engraved. ‘J. Assmann-Glashütte’.
Glashütte Limited Watch 1911-Julias Asman
    Before 1971, even in the turbulent years, the production of the watch in the town of Glashütte had never been interrupted. The Glashütte brand launched 25 limited edition exquisite watches in 2012, named after the ‘watch’, just to commemorate Julia Assman’s watch and Amundsen’s outstanding achievements in the Antarctic. The silver lacquer dial of the observation table 1911 is composed of three layers of independent white lacquer. The third layer is finely textured and silvery. Separate small seconds and power reserve indicators are located at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions of the dial, respectively, and the large Glashütte-style calendar window is at 6 o’clock. Slim blue polished minute and pear-shaped hour hands, black Arabic numerals are located in the rolled rail-type graduated ring.
    Glashütte Limited Watch 1991-Julia Asman has a round case made of white gold and a brown calfskin strap, which evokes memories of the years of adventure and silhouettes of the explorer Amundsen. The back of the case is engraved with a number marking the limited edition (01/25), and the anti-glare sapphire crystal is engraved with the date of Amundsen’s arrival in the South Pole and the date of its centennial day-December 14, 1911-2011 December 14. In addition, it is engraved with Julius Assmann–Glashütte i / SA (Julia Assmann-Glashütte / Saxony), and “Tribute to R. Amundsen” (tribute to Amundsen).
Special movement in memory of Julias Asman
    Observation table 1911-Julias Asman’s movement-100-14 movement, is a well-made automatic movement. The traditional watch is a manual winding movement. In order to give the wearer maximum comfort, the Glashütte brand chose an automatic winding movement for this limited edition watch. ‘AB AUF’ on the dial shows the power reserve, not just the passage of time. The movement has a reset mechanism to ensure that the second hand is synchronized with the standard time. In contrast to other resets, the second hand is not connected to the winding shaft or crown. Regardless of whether the crown is pulled out, the vibration system and the movement are continuously running, which can greatly reduce the wear of the movement parts. Starting the reset device requires pressing a separate reset button. The two-way winding oscillating weight transmits power to the patented reducing gear, and then transmits the power to two smaller series barrels. Most of the power was transmitted to the mainspring, which was soon full of power.
    It is not difficult to find through the sapphire crystal case, the 100-14 automatic movement is the best gift to Julias Asman. The movement has the traditional characteristics of Glashütte: three-quarter splint, gold sleeve. The gold rotor with double G logo is the hallmark of Glashütte’s high-end mechanical watches.

Piaget Ultrathin Watches-watchmaking Pursuit Keeping Pace With The Times

‘Thin’ has already become one of the goals of people’s pursuit of perfection, whether it is mobile phones, TVs, computers, etc. For example, the new TV that I just hard-heartedly ordered online a few days ago is also advertised thickness Less than 20mm, as well as the Apple Air computer I am using at the moment, are all such thin requirements. The desire for ‘thin’ has also become the direction of efforts in various fields, and also an important reason for its progress.

Imagine that it is ‘anti-natural’ and not easy to stuff such a complex and functional thing in such a thin space, at least to the extent that our human eyes can discern it. The achievement of such results is the result of the continuous accumulation and breakthrough of human beings in science, technology and technology. Then, if we want to trace back from when humans began to present this complex and comprehensive technology in this narrow space, we cannot ignore the category of watch manufacturing. Two centuries ago, watch brands in the Jurassic Mountains and elsewhere in Switzerland have begun to continuously install sophisticated mechanical devices that are both complex and have different functions, but also integrate technology and aesthetics into pocket watches or It is the small case of the watch, which also makes the watchmaking industry one of the founding representatives of mankind in pursuit of complexity, beauty, refinement and thinness.

In the field of pursuing ‘ultra-thin’, in my knowledge, Earl of Piaget can be regarded as one of the brands that should not be let down. This watch brand established by Georges-Edouard Piaget in the quiet town of La Côte-aux-Fées in the Jurassic Mountains in 1874 is constantly pursuing the Kind of possibility. In the year 1957, the former Soviet Union sent the first artificial satellite into space, setting off human exploration and pursuit of the vast universe. In the same year, Piaget introduced a 9p ultra-thin manual winding movement with a thickness of only 2mm. The world of ultra-thin micromechanics opens up new exploration. The introduction of this movement set a world record at the time. In such a small space, the escapement structure, wheel train and power unit that maintain the watch’s operation were stuffed. It was a complicated and headache to imagine. What’s more, it must ensure the smooth and normal operation of the movement, and take into account the manual chamfering and polishing of various watch movements. Therefore, the advent of the 9p movement has also redefined the meaning of the so-called ‘ultra-thin’ in the watch industry and other industries.

The pursuit of ‘ultra-thin’ has become the goal of all modern industry efforts, and Piaget started the watch industry’s pursuit of this field with the 9p movement in the category of clocks. There is no thinnest, only thinner. In a very limited assembly space, each component is incredibly thin. It is not easy to design and prepare these parts, plus assembly, adjustment, testing, polishing, etc. The time, energy and the dedicated investment of watchmakers are not inferior to the complex watches in the traditional definition. It is a complex watchmaking process in response to human modern pursuit. Or to use a more simple metaphor, we would like electronic products such as Samsung and Apple. In addition to brand and marketing reasons, there are also ‘ultra-thin’ experiences brought by these products, but in order to achieve such It is required that how much team members’ investment and accumulation of technology development are required to shrink the battery, touch screen, and complex IC hardware in such a small space.

Since the launch of the 9p movement, Piaget has been continuously working in the field of ‘ultra-thin’, continuously practicing the traditional Swiss watchmaking spirit and ultra-thin and complex watches. For more than ten years, The watchmaking workshop of La Côte-aux-Fées has launched 25 ultra-thin movements, including the world’s thinnest manual winding rectangular tourbillon movement 600P, and the world’s thinnest automatic winding. Chain movements 1200P and 1208P, as well as ultra-thin automatic chain tourbillon movement 1270p, ultra-thin perpetual calendar 855p movement, and so on, put a lot of wisdom and effort into the ultra-thin complex watch field, trying to find ultra The limits of the thin miniature world.

In 2014, just the 140th anniversary of the birth of the Earl brand, Earl launched a brand new work in the ultra-thin field, or it can be said to be a concept innovation. The Altiplano 38mm 900p manual winding watch integrates the movement and the case into a single body. The thickness of the entire watch is only 3.65 mm. The 145 parts have everything to the minimum, and the thinnest parts have the same thickness and hair. And the smallest gap between parts is only 0.03 millimeters. The concept of this number, I think, can only be designed and manufactured by the high-tech electronics industry. Otherwise, ordinary people like me, unless you use a magnifying glass to see it Imagine such a sense of space. In such a narrow space, it can still accommodate a thin clockwork, which can provide a watch with a power reserve of up to 2 days! I think these are the complexities of ‘ultra-thin’ watches. This is also Piaget’s need for ‘ultra-thin’, which is advancing with the times. After years of practice and investment, it is another surprise Right!
Next, Earl will tour in five cities: 7/17 Xi’an, 7/21 Dalian, 7/25 Chongqing, Kunming on 7/29, and 8/2 Shenzhen. ‘Thin’ is a continuous advancement in the field of modern and complex watches, and there are many record-breaking watches. If you have the opportunity to stand in front of these watches, you can imagine how they stuff such tiny and complicated things in such a thin space, then maybe you will find out what it really is An interesting and rare thing.

Diving King Ocean Legend Blancpain’s New Deep Submersible Bathyscaphe

‘I’m trembling all over … I can’t stop shaking my hand … I glanced at my watch: dived 192 meters in 10 minutes. I’m going to rush out of the darkness of the ocean floor and bring back this deep dive Trophy. At this moment, I sneaked into the deepest part of the earth to capture the image … trembling and ecstatic. ‘
 Laurent Ballesta, a famous French marine biologist

 If 60 years ago, Blancpain’s classic Fifty Fathoms series has successfully served the navy divers of various countries and is well-known in history, then the Bathyscaphe watch born out of Fifty Fathoms has dived with human beings to the deepest place on the planet-Mariana The ultimate goal of the trench is closely related, and it can be called a legend in the legend. Recently, the Bathyscaphe watch family has once again ushered in a new member-Bathyscaphe. Inheriting the classic elements of the family, with unique and distinctive features, Blancpain has given the deep dive submersible Bathyscaphe an improved 1315 movement (men’s) and 1150 movement (women’s), a silicon spring with optimized accuracy, and a strong and stable Liquid metal scale, with the passion for innovation and extraordinary craftsmanship, continues the legendary journey of the diving king.

The new deep submersible Bathyscaphe, the overall outline continues the original clear and clear style, family classic elements: fluorescent scales, engraved hands, engraved dial design, etc., as if bringing people back to about 1956, that Bathyscaphe watch was just born .

New deep submersible Bathyscaphe for men

New deep dive women Bathyscaphe
At the time, Blancpain’s then president, Jean-Jacques Fiechter, met Swiss explorer Jacques Piccard after a diving conference. Mr. Picard has been working on a submersible between a diving bell and a submarine and named it Bathyscaphe. After unremitting efforts, the third model of the submersible Trieste successfully dived into the Mariana Trench, creating outstanding achievements. As a result, Mr. Fichte, who was extremely keen on the current tide, was inspired and combined with the trend of the watch to create a small diameter Bathyscaphe watch. Over the next three decades, the Bathyscaphe watch family flourished, with different models emerging.
 Back today, the prestigious new deep submersible Bathyscaphe men’s watch, equipped with the first improved version of the 1315 movement, with a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The movement is equipped with three main barrels and cardless springs, providing a power reserve of up to 5 days. In order to ensure the perfection of this underwater timepiece movement and to cope with the strong magnetic field of the diving environment, Blancpain uses a silicon hairspring to enhance its accuracy. As a non-magnetic element, silicon has anti-corrosion function and strong anti-wear and anti-aging characteristics. For a long time, it is the best solution for watchmakers to optimize timeliness. Fine watchmaking. Today, Blancpain hides it in a diving watch and gives it a unique aesthetic structure-through the sapphire crystal case back, it has a magnificent view. In another technique, liquid metal (Liquidmetal®) is filled into the wear-resistant ceramic bezel to form the scale. When it is cooled to a solid state, the hardness of this amorphous metal alloy can be three times that of stainless steel. The perfect combination of the two materials gives the bezel a strong anti-wear and anti-corrosion ability.

New Women’s Bathyscaphe Watch with 1150 Movement
 The new deep submersible Bathyscaphe is water-resistant to 30 bar, which is equivalent to a depth of about 300 meters. It is equipped with a three-ring NATO military strap adopted by the British Ministry of Defence in the 1960s. It is large in size and extremely practical, just like the watch itself is reliable and tough. The white women’s model equipped with 1150 movement, together with the advent, not only enriched the style dimension of Bathyscaphe family, but also reflected the continuous attention of Blancpain to the development of women’s diving watches. In addition to the same use of silicon hairsprings and liquid metal scales, the white ceramic bezel, case and strap specially designed for women have a pure and gentle temperament, which makes women lovers at first sight.
Diving King’s Ocean Legend
The appearance of the new deep submersible Bathyscaphe, like a boulder, has stirred up layers of stories about Blancpain’s oceanic love.
 Perhaps the relationship between Blancpain and the ocean is not the earliest. However, Blancpain’s marine legend as the king of diving has already made history. The spotlight returned to Mr. Fichte, then President of Blancpain. He loved diving and, driven by his passion for diving, created a suitable watch for himself. Based on his diving experience, he defined the functional requirements of this timepiece and also defined seven industry standards for modern diving watches.

Early Fifty Fathom Design Drawings
 Undoubtedly, water resistance is the main feature of the first, so he developed a double sealed crown. Since the crown is not a tightly fixed part, the watch is exposed to the risk of water leakage when it is suddenly pulled out underwater. At this time, the second seal inside will protect the watch. Mr. Fichte also applied for a patent for this invention.
 The second required element is a unidirectional rotating bezel for diving timing. Mr. Fichte’s idea was to turn the bezel to the opposite position of the minute hand by turning the bezel at the beginning of the dive; this way he could read the timing information directly under the time scale on the bezel under water. At the same time, considering safety and preventing accidental rotation of the water bezel, he developed a bezel locking system and also applied for a patent for this technology. The locking system originally conceived by Mr. Fichte was to control the rotation of the bezel by installing a button on the bezel. This not only prevents accidental rotation of the bezel, but also protects its operation from salt and sand.
 The third patent relates to screws on the back of the watch. The shortcoming of the locking system is that when the case back is tightened, the ‘O’ ring sealing the case back may be distorted or deviated. In response to this problem, Mr. Fichte designed and developed another system: a special groove on the back of the watch, and an ‘O’ ring fixed in it with an additional metal ring. It is guaranteed not to cause misalignment, and the double-layer barrier is tightly waterproof.
 The legibility of timing information is a key feature of diving watches, especially when exposed to dark waters. Mr. Fichte’s watch is large in size, with contrasting black and white colors, and clearly recognizable fluorescent hands and indicators.
 The automatic winding function of the movement is also a crucial factor in Mr. Fichte’s timepiece concept. It can minimize the wear of the crown and its sealing device by manual winding.
 Finally, due to the existence of various magnets in deep diving environments, Mr. Fichte also equipped the timepiece with a soft iron inner case to protect the movement from the residual magnetism.
 Since then, the above six points and a water-resistant depth of 100 meters (usually the limit for human freediving) have become the standard for the entire industry to interpret diving watches. This passionate watch was named ‘Fifty Hundred’ according to Shakespeare’s poems. In the era when watch design’s attention was all concentrated on the field of aviation watches, Blancpain Fifty Fathoms set aside the mist of the moment, and resolutely and visionarily created a new era of diving watches.
 The deep source of emotions and the watchmaking attitude that does not follow the market trend determine the following sixty years. Blancpain cannot simply replicate the deep-water measurement performance everywhere in the diving watch field, and make a diving watch with peace of mind. . From fifty cents, five hundred cents, to X cents, Blancpain continued to push the effective limits of mechanical sounding, but this is only a small part of the achievement. New materials such as anti-radiation luminous paint, brushed titanium, liquid metal, and silicon are used skillfully by Blancpain. What is even more amazing is that Blancpain has brought complicated functions such as a floating tourbillon, flyback chronograph, full moon phase calendar into the deep sea, and pushed the production of diving watches to an unprecedented height.

 Strong abilities often create a sense of responsibility. Blancpain believes that the vast and mysterious underwater universe deserves human exploration, because only by knowing nature better can we respect and protect this part of human culture, so that we can better grasp our own destiny. Blancpain supports a number of important scientific research projects, including Blancpain and National Geographic’s ‘Pristine Seas Expeditions’, which combines exploration, research and protection, Lun Ballesta’s Coelacanth Expedition Research project, and Mr. Ballesta was the winner of the 2013 Hans Hass Fifty Fathoms Award. In recent years, Blancpain has also partnered with free diving record holder Gianluca Genoni and the diving school in Etoile Bleue, Monaco. In 2012, Blancpain became the chief sponsor of the first World Oceans Summit hosted by Economist.

 At the time of the birth of Fifty Fathoms, Mr. Fichte, then President of Blancpain, echoed the song of Ariel in Shakespeare’s famous book ‘The Tempest’-‘Five Fathoms lies in the depths of the water. Into corals. ‘ Blancpain’s diving watch family has flourished in the past sixty years. Due to Blancpain’s unwavering watchmaking beliefs, strong watchmaking ability and pragmatic watchmaking attitude, and its care for exploring passion and marine culture, it is destined to become a deep blue world The equally immortal masterpiece is here, and its author is the ‘founder of classic timepieces’-Blancpain.

Lange (A.Lange & Söhne) Big Calendar Display Night Light Mystery

Lange (A. Lange & Söhne) GRAND LANGE 1 ‘Lumen’ Limited Edition showcases Lange’s new idea: the translucent dial reveals the first luminous calendar display.

Still legible in the dark: GRAND LANGE 1 ‘Lumen’

   
   When Lange first introduced the large calendar display that year, it was not only praised, but also set off a wave of brands vying to follow suit. The large calendar with the distinctive style of the asymmetrical dial makes LANGE 1 an undisputed masterpiece. The complex devices that make this famous big calendar display are usually hidden under a solid silver dial, and now GRAND LANGE 1 ‘Lumen’ will show you this mysterious world generously. This platinum case watch is limited to 200 pieces and fully reflects the characteristics shown in the name: some dials are made of translucent sapphire crystal, only the outer ring, hour display, minute display and small seconds dial are made of black silver The sapphire crystal part reveals the first large calendar display dial device that shines in the dark. In addition, time and power reserve are also legible in the dark.

How Lange’s big calendar works

   The Lange Grand Calendar display is inspired by the five-minute digital clock Ferdinand A. Lange made for the Dresden Semper Opera in 1841. In order to use a larger date format, the calendar unit uses two independent display elements like its model: a ring-shaped single-digit dial with 0 to 9 digits advances by one division per day. Only when the transition from the 31st to the 1st will the single digit dial stand still on that day. A ten-digit cross with 1 to 3 numbers and white blank spaces advances one space every ten days. When displayed as 3, the ten-digit cross will advance to the blank space after 2 days. This irregular switching sequence is controlled by two program gears with precisely calculated gear trains.

    How to ensure the best effect of the luminous function after daily switching operations is the technical problem faced when developing the GRAND LANGE 1 ‘Lumen’. Lange’s product R & D engineer came up with the idea to directly engrav the white luminous coating and black numbers on the ten-digit cross disc. The single digit disc was composed of transparent glass with black numbers and rotated on the luminous background. The sapphire crystal part of the dial is treated with a newly developed coating that blocks most of the visible spectrum. As for the invisible UV spectrum, it is not blocked by the coating. Therefore, the numbers on the dial can penetrate enough photon energy to make the turntable device still easy to read.
   This also brought a surprise effect: the scales created by hand on the calendar splint were originally only visible to the watchmaker during assembly, but now watch wearers can also enjoy such exquisite details. These small overlapping circular cloud patterns are created by human hands with small rolling sand nails and are usually hidden under the dial.
   The double-assembled watch factory’s self-made L095.2 movement combines superb craftsmanship and high-level aesthetics, and can also be seen through sapphire crystal
The bottom cover is carefully admired from the other side. Needless to say, GRAND LANGE 1 ‘Lumen’ is impeccable from every angle.
   Just a year ago, Lange gave GRAND LANGE 1 a brand new manual winding movement. Thanks to the cancellation of the second mainspring barrel and the delicate parts arrangement, the movement can reduce the overall thickness without damaging any power reserve, and at the same time, it can transplant the elegant dial structure of LANGE 1 to large models. The dial of the GRAND LANGE 1 ‘Lumen’ shows the hours, minutes, seconds, large calendar and power reserve indicator, and the configuration is clear and non-overlapping.
