The manufacture of this movement incorporated revolutionary advanced technology , With its several outstanding features, such as the crown adjustment time, named after the official brand Omega, making Omega at the time Switzerland’s leading watchmaker. Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet, meaning perfection, achievement, beauty and excellence.

The ‘two Sessions’ Of Basel Vs Geneva Watch Show

As two of the world’s most famous watch exhibitions, the Geneva and Basel exhibitions are held one after the other each year as scheduled, which can’t help but confuse people: why the exhibitions on the same theme are separated These two cities are so densely hosted? What is even more amazing is that their respective influences are so powerful? What is the difference between them?
 For watch lovers, the two major watch exhibitions in Switzerland every year are not to be missed. They are the Geneva watch exhibition in January and the Basel watch exhibition in March. The two watch exhibitions are nicknamed ‘watch and clock conference’. Although both are exhibitions, although they have a huge influence, the history and scale of the two are different, and even the target groups are different.
History: 20 vs. 100 PK

If you want to talk about seniority, Basel is definitely more advantageous. Its origins can be traced back to 1917 and has a history of nearly a century. The history of the Geneva watch exhibition is much shorter. It was born in 1991 and developed. In a few years, there will be only 21 years.

Big difference

According to the official statistics of the Basel Watch Fair, there were 1,892 exhibitors in 2011, and 3055 journalists from 70 countries came to Basel to report on the watch fair. The number of visitors reached 100,000 and the exhibition area was about 160,000 square meters. These figures are enough to reflect the influence and unprecedented grandeur of the Basel show.

In contrast, the Geneva watch fair presents a niche and private atmosphere. It does not have the hustle and bustle of the brand at Basel. It may have only about twenty exhibitors, of which Richemont Group (Richemont Group) Group’s watch brands account for the majority. These include absolute big names in the watch industry such as Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, IWC, Earl, Baume & Mercier, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Lange, Panerai, Vacheron Constantin, and some independent watch brands such as Coopers, Parmigiani Richard Miller.

The audience is different
 Everyone who is familiar with the watch industry has heard a word-it is difficult to enter Basel and Geneva. This is because the Basel Watch Fair is open to the public, whoever you are, just buy a ticket and you can enter the exhibition site. But the Geneva watch fair is much more expensive. It is not open to the public and can only be attended by invitation. Otherwise, even if you reach the entrance of the exhibition hall, you will not be able to enter.
 So relatively speaking, Geneva is a relatively private salon for watchmakers, orderers and the media, while Basel is a huge expo open to exhibitors, media and visitors from all over the world. In any case, SIHH and BASELWORLD, they are the definers of ‘world time’.

Blancpain’s Aesthetic Paintings On The Dial

At first, the watch was only a tool for checking time. When the technology developed to a relatively mature stage, it was given aesthetic significance. As a long-established luxury watch brand, Blancpain was born in 1735 and is one of the best witnesses of watch aesthetics from scratch.

   Blancpain has a wealth of watch technology and technology reserves, such as the most traditional enamel, metal engraving technology, or the rare Damascus gold setting and red copper technology on the dial, which are part of the realization of watch aesthetics. The other link is the aesthetic concept formed by Blancpain’s profound cultural heritage for nearly 300 years-the right to speak in the field of watch aesthetics is in the hands of very few real creators. Can be obtained by imitation learning. So, what kind of aesthetics is advanced? Blancpain is known as ‘the founder of classic timepieces’. What kind of works are eligible for the honor of ‘classic’? Let us appreciate several representative wristwatches of Blancpain in recent years Table works to peek at one or two.

   As an industry-renowned manufacturer of advanced complex mechanical watches, Blancpain is one of the very few brands in the world that can complete all the design, research, development, manufacturing, assembly, and sales on its own. So in the field of watch aesthetics, Blancpain also believes that a true creator must have excellent original ability.
   Taking this Villeret classic series cherry blossom watch introduced at the Baselworld 2016 as an example, Blancpain uses a flat tire enamel process to outline the supposedly arc-shaped shape with an angular and pentagonal gold pentagon outline. The petals of cherry blossoms are filled with enamel and micro-painted enamel at the same time, so that the white of the petals and the red of the flower stamens and the divergent shape of the flower staves are used to restore the true cherry blossoms. After the two different processing methods are merged, it is beyond the scope of Lintong, showing a very vivid and interesting effect, people can not help but imagine that the cherry blossoms planted by Blancpain really look like this.

   Blancpain’s ingenuity doesn’t stop there. The background of the cherry blossom is set to a black agate base. Like a finishing touch, Blancpain uses laser technology to engrav the black agate into cracked lines. Modern laser technology and traditional enamel technology are simultaneously used. Used on a dial, this is Blancpain, adhering to the traditional style of ‘innovation is tradition’, highly recognizable.
   Classic paintings are something that can be presented on a dial. But it is not that moving famous paintings to the dial can bring added value to the watch. The first is the choice of paintings. Too famous paintings, transplanted to the dial, may seem utilitarian, which is not in line with Blancpain’s low-key personality. The second is the method of transplantation. The dial has its unique aesthetic space. Its shape, size, material, and other factors, when combined with existing paintings, will definitely collide with fresh sparks. This requires the creator to understand the watch on the one hand, and to have a deep understanding of the painting on the other.
   It is also the Villeret classic series wave watch launched at the Basel 2016. The dial pattern is inspired by the Japanese ukiyo painter Katsushika
(Hokusai) ‘s famous woodblock print ‘Kanagawa Chong Langlang’.

   The original work depicts the tumbling waves of a raging sea off Kanagawa, and the fishing boat bumps up and down in the waves. The picture has a low viewpoint, and the lines are full of tension. The most distinctive feature is the eagle-claw-shaped wave tip, making viewers worried that the fishing boat will be carried away by the huge waves.
   Blancpain refined the visual center ‘Eagle Claw Wave’ in the painting, and then recomposed it to meet the aesthetic purpose of the round dial. When making the dial, Blancpain first fixed the platinum giant wave-engraved parts on the red copper base material, and then immersed it in the 瀛 rokushō patina, creating a unique green-grey color for the waves. At the same time, part of the spray is polished to enhance the texture of the giant waves when the frame is stopped. Finally, the entire platinum giant wave is engraved and fixed on the Mexican vermiculite. This series of steps perfectly creates the visual beauty of “seeing in motion”, which complements the mysterious dial with changing colors. This makes the Blancpain Wave, which was born from a famous painting, have the amazing beauty that even surpasses the original, it is convincing.

   Chinese culture has a long history and great breadth, but there are few watches with the theme of Chinese civilization. Blancpain’s Chinese calendar watch combines the lunar calendar of the dual-track calendar with the Gregorian calendar of the single-track calendar. For the first time in history, the traditional Chinese ‘Yin-Yang Branch’ calendar, the Gregorian calendar, and the moon phase display are perfectly presented on the dial. Above. And Liang Zhu theme series watches, the world has shown the endless possibilities of dial painting. For Chinese watch lovers, being able to appreciate authentic Chinese painting on top mechanical watches is undoubtedly the most luxurious enjoyment.

   In order to recreate the artistic conception of Chinese painting, Blancpain’s enamel masters studied with great care and began numerous attempts from the enamel raw material stage, and finally formulated the enamel with the most ink and color. Admire the details of the paintings from a close distance. The elegant colors, delicate figures, and harmonious scene composition make it difficult to imagine. These lifelike Chinese-themed enamel paintings on the square-shaped disk are actually produced by distant Swiss masters.

   After mastering the techniques of Chinese painting, the master of enamel did not stay at the stage of visual aesthetics. Instead, he challenged the more difficult narrative effect, realized the content of the story, and then read the key scene of Liang Zhu’s legend, the grass bridge worship, and read with his classmates , Eighteenth phase sending, the meeting of the platform, and Huabibiyi tell one by one. Since then, this set of themed watches has jumped out of the narrow watch field and became a real work of art.

Athens Watch Proudly-with Enamel Technology And Un-118 Movement

Athens watch sailing alone, proud of the heroes-with enamel technology and UN-118 movement, perfectly show the art of watchmaking and excellent precision.
   Since the rise of international trade in the 19th century, Athenaeum has been committed to the creation and development of nautical observatory timepieces, so that captains and their valuable cargo can always maintain precise voyages. The UN-118 movement has been continuously improved since it was first introduced in 2011, and has become the core of the design of 2012 marine astronomical watches.

   The diameter of the new Marine Observatory Watch has been expanded to 45 mm, the newly designed crown is easy to operate, and the rubber dents make the winding more comfortable. In addition, the new ‘Marine Observatory Watch’ has even more enviable innovations-for example, the dial adopts the exquisite enamel dial hand-made by the globally recognized enamel dial expert and the latest watch of the Athens Watch Group Donzé Cadrans.
   Mastering this exquisite and complex enamel decoration process depends entirely on the personal acuity and daily practice of the craft master. The superb craftsmanship that has been handed down for centuries is astonishingly brilliant on Athens watches. The dial of the Nautical Observatory Watch is beautiful and dazzling. The black Roman numerals and rough cherry red complement the white background color, showing an intuitive and interesting style. The bezel in 18K rose gold reinforces the precision of the timepiece.
   The UN-118 movement further reflects the imagination of the Athenian watch in the field of watchmaking. This self-winding movement is entirely conceived and manufactured by the Athenian watch and is now used in the Marine Observatory Watch. This movement continues to advance the use of new materials and technologies by Athenian watches.

   The standard anchor escapement in the UN-118 movement is made using the unique DiamonSil (the perfect synthesis of diamond silicon crystal, synthetic diamond and silicon) of the Athenian watch, and has promoted innovative cooperation with Sigatec. The UN-118 movement proves the perfect fusion of etching technology between silicon and diamond-coated silicon (DCS), becoming the first innovative series machine to accommodate DiamonSil anchor escapement, Athens own balance and patented balance spring Core one.

   The movement has an excellent 60-hour kinetic energy reserve display, an oversized small seconds indicator, and a date at 6 o’clock. It also has the ‘Quick Set’ feature that Athenaeum prides itself on, allowing you to quickly adjust the date forward / backward.
  The ‘Marine Observatory Watch’ 18K rose gold model is limited to 350 pieces worldwide; you can also choose a non-limited edition: including a two-tone titanium case with a gold bezel and crown, and a stainless steel / titanium case.

   From enamel art to precision manufacturing and design, Athenaeum showcases the perfect combination of art and innovation through the ‘Navigation Observatory Watch’, leading the company to sail in a maverick way, and to stand out from the crowd.

Easily master the time in all parts of the world. In 2018, Glashütte Original once again wrote the sequel to the success story-the new Senator Cosmopolite World Time watch is presented in a steel outerwear and minimalist design. This watch is an ideal companion for people who travel frequently or need to maintain international connections. At the same time, it is also indispensable for friends who love the famous German watchmaking arts. Let’s witness this ‘master world time’ watch together.

Watch the real shot

Watch dial real shot

   The small seconds at 6 o’clock and the large calendar at 4 o’clock complete the blue central minute and hour hands. An independent local time display at 12 o’clock with a particularly useful day and night display and power reserve indicator. At 8 o’clock, two narrow display windows closely follow the curve of the dial, and the destination is displayed by the IATA international airport code in one of three colors, and the daylight saving time and standard time are displayed separately. At 9 o’clock, there is a newly designed day and night display, which is displayed by the small sun and the ancient night sky. The elegant look of the watch is complemented by a dark blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with pin buckle or folding clasp.

Watch case and crown details real shot
   The 44 mm stainless steel case with matte and finely polished finishes allows local time to be set via the 2 o’clock crown, while the current time zone can be selected via the 8 o’clock crown. When traveling eastward (early ahead), turn the crown at 4 o’clock clockwise until the destination time zone IATA code appears in the corresponding DST or STD window. If traveling westward (time delay), turn the crown counterclockwise. In both cases, the central hour and minute hands move forward or backward in 15-minute steps to display the IATA code of the destination time zone in the DST or STD window. After that, the traveler does not need to make any further changes: the central hour and minute hands will indicate the correct time at the destination, and further improve the accuracy of the time display with the correct day and night display at 9 o’clock and the correct date of the destination.

   The intelligent mechanism is hidden in the Caliber 89-02, a 4 Hz self-made movement, which is powered by an eccentric rotor. Has a power reserve of at least 72 hours. The adjustment system has a gooseneck spring, which requires no adjuster and can be adjusted with four small screws on the balance wheel to ensure a high level of speed accuracy. This self-winding movement with a classic Glashütte three-quarter splint, beautifully modified surfaces and numerous movement details can be seen at a glance under the anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass.

Love Me, Stop Torturing Me Soon!

He / she who has a beloved one naturally wants to be tired together often, but if you want to look good and look old, you need to take some care to protect this relationship-this is how we take care of love. The truth is the same. Not only because of price, emotion is the most important factor. As long as the watch is properly maintained, it can grow old with you, and even become a heirloom, passed down from generation to generation. Give me space that is not loose. Everyone on the chain has heard these jokes that happened in real life: Consumers rushed back to the watch shop to return their watches because the watch they bought for two days was broken and they did n’t leave. It’s up! But they don’t know, no matter whether you buy a watch that is manually wound or a watch that is automatically wound, a mechanical watch must be powered by ‘winding’ in order to continue the time. The Bulgari Octo Finissimo skeleton sandblasted watch is equipped with an ultra-thin hand-wound movement with a power reserve of 65 hours. Watches equipped with a manual winding mechanical movement may wish to develop the habit of winding it at a fixed time every day. As for how many times the crown rotates when winding, there is no uniform standard for the power reserve of each movement. It should be noted that if you feel a certain degree of resistance from the crown when you wind up, it means that it is fully wound up. Do not continue to wind up to avoid breaking the mainspring. A watch equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement, if worn daily, the daily movement of the wrist can continue the watch. However, if the watch has not been worn for a while, the watch has stopped. When you wear it again, do not shake the watch violently. You can also rotate the crown a few times and wind the watch manually to restore the movement to normal operation. . The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Pirelli Blue is equipped with a self-winding movement with a miniature eccentric rotor. Hygiene is very important-if the watch is equipped with a leather strap, whether it is cowhide, snakeskin, crocodile skin, kangaroo skin, lizard skin … you need to take care of it. Try to avoid contact with liquid, avoid exposure to high humidity environment, avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight, and avoid contact with cosmetics and oily materials to cause staining. We often say that wearing a watch with a metal strap in the summer and a watch with a leather strap in the winter is afraid of the leather strap being affected by sweat. The calfskin strap of the Hermès Harré H watch needs careful care. Metal bracelets are less afraid of liquids, but if worn frequently, it is recommended to clean them every six months. Wash with a soft-bristled brush and soapy water, rinse with water, and wipe with a soft, dry cloth. Be sure to clean the bracelet after bathing or swimming in the sea, otherwise the salt in the sea and the chlorine in the swimming pool will cause injury. In addition, the length of the chain is appropriately adjusted according to the thickness of the wrist, which can reduce the wear of the metal bracelet. If it is a rubber strap, avoid contact with nail polish or prolonged exposure to the sun. The cleaning method is the same as the metal chain. The Rolex Greenwich II watch has a 904L stainless steel case, which has higher corrosion resistance than ordinary stainless steel. Don’t let tears accompany me overnight-waterproof water vapor liquid is the number one natural enemy of the watch. When they enter the case, they will cause parts to corrode, lubricants to deteriorate, and damage to the movement. The waterproof performance of the watch is measured in the pressure unit ‘bar’. 1 bar is equal to 1 atmosphere, that is, a pressure of about 10 meters in water depth. However, when you are told that the watches have a water resistance of 30 meters and 50 meters, don’t think that they can be placed 30 meters or 50 meters underwater. This number is that the watch is statically placed in the laboratory to receive fixed water Pressure test value. Generally speaking, 30 meters and 50 meters are equipped with daily water resistance. You can wash your hands and dishes while wearing it. You can walk in the rain with umbrellas and you wo n’t have to worry about being splashed with water. 100 meters while diving is at least 200 meters. The Athens Deep Dive km diving watch has a water-resistant depth of 1,000 meters, but before entering the water, make sure all crowns are pressed and tightened. If you really wear a watch to swim or dive, be sure to pay attention to the following: choose metal , Ceramic, rubber strap, do not let the leather strap be immersed in water. Before launching, make sure all crowns and buttons are tightened. Do not engage in high-impact sports such as high-level diving and high-speed surfing. Rinse the watch with clean water when finished. If you go to the pool or the sea frequently, remember to change the waterproof gasket every year. Finally, do not wear a watch to take a hot bath or sauna, because the water vapor molecules are very small, it is easier to penetrate into the case. Although the Tudor Biwan Series 1958 watch has a water resistance of 200 meters, if you often wear swimming, remember to change the waterproof gasket frequently. There is a certain amount of love to do-adjust the old talk, do not adjust the date at midnight. Depending on the model, the date conversion format of the watch includes jump jump, half jump jump, and delay switch. Some movements will change the date a few minutes before and after midnight, and some movements will convert a few hours before and after midnight. If the date is adjusted during the date conversion, the movement will be harmed. You can ask the watch for the date conversion form when buying the watch to avoid wrong operation. Blancpain Villeret classic series big date retrograde week watch, the date and week can be switched instantly at midnight. The safest way is to avoid any calendar adjustments between 9pm and 3am. If you must adjust, you can adjust the hour and minute hands outside this section first, and then adjust the hour and minute hands to the correct time after adjusting the date. Not only can the MM perpetual calendar watch be adjusted quickly and arbitrarily, but there is no restricted area for adjustment. Beware of Fatal Attraction-Magnetic Fields Modern-day life magnetic fields are ubiquitous. Not only are there more magnets than ever, the magnetic force is getting stronger. These magnetic fields come from digital products, handbag locks, refrigerator magnetic strips, magnet toys, and household appliances such as televisions, stereos, microwave ovens, hair dryers, and so on. Therefore, inadvertent magnetism of watches is common, whether it is a mechanical watch or a quartz watch. Baume & Mercier Baumatic watches, the balance spring and escapement of the movement use silicon and non-ferromagnetic elements, which can resist the effects of magnetic fields in daily life. Once the watch is magnetized, it will make the hairspring stick, make the movement unstable, and in severe cases, it will cause the balance to stop and the movement to strike! Even quartz watches that are exposed to strong magnetic fields can be disturbed and stopped for a few seconds. To identify whether the watch is magnetized, place the watch next to the compass. If the pointer is deflected, the watch is magnetized. The watch is magnetized and can be demagnetized at a regular service center. This is a very simple operation. In most cases, the watch will return to normal after this operation is completed. The Omega Seamaster 300-meter diving watch is equipped with the Zenith Observatory movement, which can withstand the strong magnetic interference of 15,000 Gauss. Charging each other is a matter of knowledge-battery quartz watches have the problem of replacing batteries. Battery life depends on how the watch is used, and in general it has a lifespan of 2 to 3 years. But if you are wearing a chronograph and often use the chronograph function, the battery life will be shortened. The Longines Concas V.H.P. chronograph is equipped with a quartz movement, which will signal when the battery is about to run out. When the quartz watch stops operating, it is recommended to replace the battery immediately. Do not leave the used battery inside the watch, otherwise the movement of the battery may be damaged and the movement may be damaged. Harry Winston’s Avenue Classic Series Fifth Avenue watch is equipped with a quartz movement. When the battery is found to be exhausted, it should be replaced as soon as possible. Supporting the health of the old—maintenance watches are very sophisticated instruments. Hundreds of micro-components run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The vibrations of the escapement fork and balance spring are up to 100 million times a year. Such high-density and high-frequency friction will inevitably cause parts wear and tear, and the lubricant will dry up or deteriorate, so it must be maintained regularly. The maintenance period mainly depends on the specific model and its conditions of use and climate. Watchmakers usually recommend that you perform maintenance every two or three years, but honestly, one is that the maintenance costs are not expensive, and the other is that modern watchmaking technology has leapfrogged, and this maintenance can be done once every five years. Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date 36 watch, the brand provides a global warranty of up to 5 years. Maintenance includes: completely disassembling the case and movement, thoroughly cleaning and oiling the parts, and replacing worn parts if necessary. Replace the waterproof gasket, calibrate and check the speed control mechanism and power reserve, adjust the dial and pointer position, finally install the movement in the case, test the waterproof performance, and finally clean the case and bracelet and polish it. At this time, your Love watch has a new look from the inside out. The Parmigiani Bugatti Type 390 is an extremely complex and sophisticated timepiece. Love it, you need to take good care of it!
