The new Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral by Bucherer, once again demonstrates the brand’s outstanding innovative technological achievements. The new work is equipped with a new self-made CFB T3000 movement, which combines the automatic winding technology of the outer oscillating weight and the mounting technology of the outer edge of the tourbillon frame. With its base in Lucerne, Bucherer is a pioneer in the development of automatic winding technology for oscillating weights on the outer edge. Its winding technology is also the technical basis of the floating tourbillon.
Sear Jewellery & Watch Fair 2018: After years of research and development, Bao Qi Cai, located in central Switzerland, presents an elegant and unique Maliron double-rim tourbillon watch. Watch factory engineers and watchmakers have developed a new CFB for this watch. The movement of the T3000 movement is derived from the automatic winding system of the oscillating weight on the outer edge, and is equipped with a tourbillon that enhances the precision of the movement. Lai perfectly blended the two outer edge mounting techniques, hence the name ‘double outer edge’.
Micro Engineering Innovation Masterpiece
The tourbillon technology that has been in existence for more than 200 years has solved the problems that have always affected the accuracy of clocks. At that time, users generally placed pocket watches in suit vest pockets, and the balance wheel operated in a vertical orientation, which was directly affected by gravity. Even the slightest azimuth deviation will greatly affect the accuracy of the pocket watch’s travel time. To offset this error, the entire escapement must continuously rotate along the axis to offset the gravity factors from different directions. At the time, master watchmakers developed the escapement system in the rotation frame for tourbillon technology; to this day, the production of complex and delicate tourbillons is still highly respected. Currently, only a few systems are known as the most difficult watch technology. Watch factory can control.
Tourbillon beauty at a glance
The tourbillon rotates along its axis, and its mounting technology is extremely complicated. At first, the watchmaker installed a gemstone bearing on the base plate of the movement and the balance plate to support the frame; the flying tourbillon is an advanced version, which is supported only by the base plate bearing, and the wearer can be unobstructed from above
Appreciate the operation of the tourbillon. Bucherer goes one step further. The tourbillon of the new CFB T3000 movement seems to be floating in the air, and its dynamics can be seen from the front and back. The secret among them is three sets of invisible ceramic bearings. The tourbillon runs accurately, stably and smoothly. This technology, together with the winding technology of the outer oscillating weight, is also patented by Bucherer.
Bucherer also uses top technology to make the escapement system. The escapement fork and escape wheel are made of silicon, which reduces the friction of parts without lubrication. The power reserve can also be increased to more than 65 hours, and it is not affected by magnetic fields and maintains accuracy. Stability for the CFB T3000 movement
Meets the standards for precision timepiece certification. Another feature of the movement is the stop-seconds function, which allows the wearer to stop the tourbillon from rotating, making it easy to adjust the watch’s accuracy to seconds according to the standard time. The Geneva stripe decoration of the movement’s splint is very polished and in keeping with the tradition of Swiss watchmaking. As the oscillating weight rotates around the outer edge of the movement instead of being mounted centrally, you can admire the subtle structure of the entire movement from the sapphire crystal back. In 2008, Bao Qi Cai became the first watchmaking brand to mass-produce the oscillating movement on the outer edge of the rotor, and first applied it to the CFB A1000 self-made movement; in 2016, the outer edge of the rotor technology was applied to the CFB A2000 self-made movement. , And this year it is applied to the CFB T3000 movement.
Elegant and luxurious technology extraordinary
Such a wonderful tourbillon movement is worth appreciating: the tourbillon that makes one revolution per minute is set at 12 o’clock on the dial, the frame
The frame is equipped with a hand that has the function of small seconds; the elegant and elegant 18K rose gold case with a diameter of 43 mm becomes the stage for the CFB T3000 movement to appear. The elegant and rounded appearance and the micro-long crown are the style features of the Maliron series. . Silver dial with wedge-shaped gold-plated hour-markers and faceted sword-shaped gold-plated hands, with the right proportions and noble temperament; double-sided anti-reflective sapphire glass with crystal-clear water and a wonderful layout of the dial; Carry out luxurious style and wear comfortable clothing.
