Butterfly Spreading Its Wings And Dancing, Van Cleef & Arpels’ Butterfly

Butterfly, dressed in beautiful colored clothes, flapping her wings gently, dancing from the flowers. The beauty of that posture fascinates people who yearn for flying freely, and the light figure is like a graceful and moving dance on the stage. The gorgeousness on the wings is the best color clothing. We like butterflies, not only because of their beautiful appearance and ability to fly, but also because of their tenacity that breaks cocoons.
   When it comes to butterflies, editors will think of butterflies flying in Van Cleef & Arpels’ world. As the world’s top watchmaking brand, Van Cleef & Arpels has superb watchmaking skills and extraordinary jewelry craftsmanship. The brand is very good at expressing nature, and the butterfly theme has appeared in Van Cleef & Arpels’ poetic world since the 1920s . Today, I will give you a brief introduction to Van Cleef & Arpels’ butterfly-themed watch in recent years.
Butterfly spreading its wings

   In Van Cleef & Arpels’ extraordinary dial series, there are a number of butterfly-themed watches, four of which show different seasons and seasons with different butterfly shapes and backgrounds.

   These four watches use a variety of techniques to show vivid and exquisite pictures. Needless to say, the diamonds on the bezel are set, and the bright butterflies on the dial are realized by various enamels. The dial of the watch is filled with enamel, metal foil inlaid enamel and stained glass enamel. The four watches present different themes in different bright enamel colors and different butterfly shapes. Different colors, different shades and different attitudes bring people into the season of the dial, just like a fairy tale.

Lady Arpels Papillon Extraordinaire
   Fluttering butterflies may be the object of everyone’s chase in childhood, just like the dream of flying in their hearts. Although they do not have the ability to fly, they have that innocence. These watches reflect the essence of the Van Cleef & Arpels family’s craftsmanship and reproduce the iconic pattern in a series of flashing colors. The watch does not have any complicated functions, but the dial uses different techniques such as gem carving and inlay, enamel and gem setting to display a dancing butterfly image.
A butterfly fluttering on the dial
   At the 2016 SIHH Geneva International Watch & Clock Salon, Van Cleef & Arpels launched two new watches with butterfly elements. The two watches showed different forms.

Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Nuit des Papillons
   This Lady Nuit des Papillons watch is a butterfly-themed watch launched at the 2016 SIHH. This watch has a double-layer dial. The hollow dial on the upper layer is diamond snowflake inlay, and the lower dial is a blue gem-colored gradient inlay. Through the internal 12-hour dial movement, the dial can be realized The color gradient of the hollowed out part is changed every 12 hours, so that the butterfly under the moonlight is rendered in the change of light and shadow, showing the beauty of different shades.

   The bezel and edges of the watch are set with fine diamonds. The glittering upper dial uses snowflake-type mosaic technology. The diamonds used have reached D-level and VVS-level in color and clarity, respectively. The upper case is composed of four rose-cut diamonds to make colorful butterfly wings, revealing the blues. The lower dial is set with carefully selected sapphires and diamonds, and emerges between the hollow patterns on the upper dial, creating a subtle and charming color change. The watch is equipped with a manual mechanical movement specially developed exclusively by Van Cleef & Arpels, showing the superb craftsmanship.

Lady Jour des Fleurs

   At 2016 SIHH Van Cleef & Arpels also launched another watch-Lady Jour des Fleurs. This watch uses the same skills as the Lady Nuit des Papillons watch mentioned above, but the theme of the performance is not Another butterfly, but the glory of the plant world, is also exquisitely unusual.

Lady Arpels Ronde des Papillons
   On 2016SIHH, Van Cleef & Arpels launched this stunning butterfly-themed watch-Lady Arpels Ronde des Papillons. This new poetic complication watch brings three colorful butterflies into the dial. The air dances with the floating clouds, circling and dancing with the rhythm of the minute hand, and the hour hand soars in the sky with a swallow symbolizing happiness.

   Below the watch’s exquisite dial is a movement exclusively developed for this Lady Arpels Ronde des Papillons aerial ballet watch, which displays the time with a retrograde hour hand and a variable-speed minute hand. The three butterflies flickered one by one in the colorful clouds, instructed to travel in minutes, and then submerged into the clouds, and the next butterfly appeared as a timekeeping task. The hour display also echoes the function of Van Cleef & Arpels’ retrograde movement, tap the time scale with the swallow’s wings, and return to its original position after 12 hours. In addition, the dial is especially equipped with a button to display the module can be touched at any time, adding vitality to the dial. Just press the button, the three butterflies will perform an aerial dance music in the cloud for about ten seconds, and return to the original track at the end, catch up with the time elapsed between the dance music, and continue to accurately tell the time.
   In order to vividly interpret the extraordinary scene of the dial, Van Cleef & Arpels displays different parts with different techniques to present a harmonious beauty. The sky background that emits a soft light is made of mother-of-pearl, and then hand-painted blue; erratic but distinctive clouds are made of gray mother-of-pearl with different shades, and butterflies and swallows are decorated with fine-grained micro-painting to catch eye-catching colors.

Lady Arpels Ronde des Papillons

   The bottom of the watch also presents a poetic picture that echoes the dial: the engraving process is engraved with soaring swallows on the gold case back, the delicate floating clouds are also engraved on the sapphire mirror, and the three rotors are decorated with colorful butterflies. As the pendulum spins around the wrist as much as possible, three butterflies will dance in colorful clouds.
Summary: When it comes to cocooning butterflies, the production of each watch is a process from chrysalis to butterfly, one by one, from processing and polishing to assembly, design and assembly of the watch body, until the entire watch is tested, This is a process of turning butterflies into cocoons. Each watch can be said to be a work of art. One by one, the delicately polished parts are assembled to form an exquisite instrument for measuring time, which vividly shows the ethereal time with the same amount of change between machines.

Why Are The Stars Of The Lange Watch So Bright?

Lange (A. Lange & Sohne) has always believed that there is no contradiction between innovation and tradition. Ferdinando Adolf Lange and his son have long relied on scientific research when they wanted to take the ideal of making the best watch in the world a long time ago. Modern generations of Lange engineers and movement designers often collaborate with universities and research institutes to research the latest technology for demanding Lange watch owners. A strict rule was born: every innovative technology must be truly useful. Three examples from 2010 reflect the forward-looking traditional watchmaking process.

Looking for harder gold

   Saxony’s metallurgy has a long history, even dating back to medieval alchemy. At that time, people believed that mysterious magic stones could turn cheap metals into gold. The luckiest result in the record is the European porcelain invented in Dresden 300 years ago. Lange did not find the mysterious magic stone, but developed a new alloy that is stronger than all existing alloys. Chemically speaking, the new ‘honey-colored’ gold is a type of 18K gold alloy with a gold content of 75%. Honey-colored gold can have a charming color between rose gold and platinum, thanks to copper and zinc. A small amount of manganese mixture combined with special high temperature treatment makes the alloy have extraordinary hardness.

   Honey-colored gold has a Vickers hardness of 300 to 320 HV, which is twice as hard as gold and rose gold with Vickers hardness of 135 to 150 HV. In the Vickers hardness test, a pyramid-shaped diamond is pressed against the surface of the test material with an accurate force, and then the hardness of the material is calculated by a special formula based on the diagonal length of the permanent indentation. The benefits of the new alloy are obvious: the honey-colored gold has beaten all other gold alloys in the scratch resistance test.

Like inverted sunglasses

   LANGE ZEITWERK showed a new look of time, and caused a warm response with precise word jump and iconic design. The new ‘Luminous’ version makes it easy to read in the dark. The technical challenge in developing this watch was to provide light for the numbers that were hidden under the dial most of the time. Lange’s experts found the solution: adding a translucent but UV-permeable coating to the sapphire crystal dial. It’s like inverted sunglasses: the light transmission in the visible spectrum is weakened, so only the outline of the word-jumping structure can be seen. Ultraviolet has a wavelength of 250 to 430 nanometers, so it can penetrate the coating unhindered, giving the Superluminova digital energy that can glow for several hours at night.

Why Lange’s star is so bright

   1815 MOONPHASE symbolizes Lange’s constant pursuit of extreme precision. The moon phase transmission of the watch is extremely accurate. Only after more than a thousand years will it deviate from the actual moon age cycle by one day. A closer look at the coating of the moon phase disk will tell you how Lange’s experts are about the details? Mystery: They want to show the unique charm of the night sky on the watch. Experts and scientists who have just joined the team to help develop the moon phase disk work together to develop a new coating that is closer to nature.

   The traditional moon phase disk coating technology in the watchmaking industry is not enough to meet the requirements of bright colors and clear outlines made by Lange technicians for decorative details. The new process requires a very hard carbon film to be processed by physical vapour deposition (PVD) as a gold moon phase disc. The roughness of the surface of the moon phase disc is precisely adjusted, so it can be adjusted to the ideal hue and has high wear resistance. The interference effect caused bystanders’ eyes to see a dark blue canopy like a clear starry sky, and the stars were cut with excimer lasers that make complex semiconductor circuits. This ultra-precision technology does not leave any burned marks on the edges, so the stars with perfectly smooth edges are shining and particularly brilliant.
