The ‘cockpit’ Series Made A Stunning Appearance In Basel And Wrote The Long Kun Legend Again

At Basel this year, Lang Kun launched a new series of new products-COCKPIT WATCHES (‘cockpit’ series) watches. This series fits perfectly with Lang Kun’s brand spirit ‘Fortitude and Life, Immortal Legend’, and once it debuted, it received wide acclaim from the media and watch fans.
   According to the brand, the birth of the ‘cockpit’ series originated from the development history of the Lang Kun brand legend, and the design inspiration was derived from the original design of the watch in the cockpit of the aircraft. A tribute to the tireless flying dreams of mankind, as well as those immortal legends related to war.
The BELL X-1-commemorating the first plane to break through the sound barrier
   With the realization of the flying dream, mankind also began to pursue the speed journey. Soon, people discovered an invisible limit: ‘sound barrier’. The Austrian physicist Ernst Mach defined the concept of ‘Mach number’ to describe the ratio of speed to sound speed, and then began the journey to break through Mach 1. However, the closer we approached this goal, the more serious the problem appeared: the aircraft became unmanageable, and all physical laws seemed to fail. Until November 14, 1947, Chuck Yeager drove the Bell X-1 experimental machine with a rocket engine and succeeded at an altitude of 13,700 meters (45,000 feet). Break through the sound barrier. The plane’s nickname ‘Glamorous Glennis’ derives from Ye Ge’s wife’s name, Glennis. Yeg reached Mach 1.06, at a speed equivalent to 1080 km / h at this altitude.
   Interestingly, two days before the flight, Ye Ge and his wife broke two ribs while riding a horse and walking at night. He didn’t expect the fence to be closed on the way back. Worried about being banned from flying, he did not go to the hospital at his base. Instead, he sought a nearby veterinarian and only told his friend Jack Ridley about a broken rib. Due to injuries, Yege was unable to pull the X-1 hatch. So Redry gave him a lever converted from a broomstick, and Yege used it to close the hatch.
   Lang Kun’s BELL X-1 style is also to commemorate this milestone in the history of flight. The entire table is made of 316 stainless steel with all-black sandblast plating. Matt black surface, with fluorescent time scale and pointer, clear and brief. A high-grade gray nylon strap with the same material as the aircraft seat belt is used, which is full of toughness. The atmospheric inverted pumpkin bar crown makes it easier to adjust the travel time. Automatic mechanical movement with hardened sapphire glass and water resistance to 50 meters.
JU 52 commemorates German famous aircraft during and after World War II
   No aircraft is as closely linked to German history as the JU 52. JU52 was designed by German engineer Hugo Junkers. After its first flight in May 1932, the JU52 (nicknamed ‘Junker’) proved the reliability, quality, and safety of any other aircraft. With a wingspan of 29 meters, a length of 19 meters, and a maximum speed of 265 km / h, the JU52 is a milestone in the history of aircraft design. Because of its high comfort level, in the six years since the introduction of the JU 52 for the first time until the end of World War II, Lufthansa has always accounted for about 75% of the total in the civil aviation fleet. It produced 4,845 aircraft between 1932-1952, some of which are still flying today.
   Lang Kun’s JU52 style, LACO JU 52 combines the unique design of the first cockpit watch with the reliable quality of Juncker’s on your wrist. The entire watch also uses the all-sand blasting effect of 316 stainless steel and is equipped with a high-grade gray nylon strap that is consistent with the material of the aircraft seat belt.
   Unlike the BELL-X1, the matte black surface adds the decoration of German characteristic track patterns. The automatic mechanical movement is equipped with a small seconds at 6 o’clock, which reflects stronger functionality. It breaks the routine and is cleverly set between 4 and 5 o’clock. The hands and Arabic numerals are coated with a fluorescent layer, which can still be clearly recognized in the dark.
Spirit of Saint Louis Commemorates First Charles Lynby (American Pilot) Transatlantic Aircraft
   It all started with an airplane invented by the Wright brothers. However, this is not enough. Humans are unwilling to just jump in the air for a short time, but hope to use this brand new means of transportation to cross long distances.
   In 1919, entrepreneur Raymond Orteig invested $ 25,000 to reward the first direct flight from the United States to France. Charles Lindberg has wanted to cross the Atlantic from New York to Paris since 1926. He and the plane-building company Ryan found real supporters—the St. Louis industrialists. After only two months of research and development and construction, Ryan NYP (NYP for New York-Paris) was born. To pay tribute to its funders, Lin Bai named the aircraft the Spirit of St. Louis.
   To save weight, Lin Bai abandoned radios and sextants, using maps, compasses and clocks for navigation. At 7:54 on May 20, 1927, after filling with 1705 liters of fuel, Lin Bai took off from New York Roosevelt Airport and began a historic single flight with a theoretical mileage of 6,437 kilometers. After 5808.5 kilometers and 33.5 hours of flight, Lin Bai, known by the media as ‘Flying Fool’, made a safe landing at Paris Bourget Airport. With this feat, Charles Lindbergh has a history, and Laco Transatlantik lets you wear this watch with a pioneering spirit on your wrist. The entire watch is dominated by a black tone, with a mechanical movement and a penetrating design. The strap continues the grey nylon strap of the ‘cockpit’ series. The crown is set at 10 o’clock, and a small seconds dial is added at 12 o’clock, making the entire watch quite different. Fluorescent hands and scales, sapphire glass and 50 meters water resistance. The standard configuration of these series allows the watch to have sufficient performance guarantee.
