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.

Watch House Explains In Detail What Is Qf 印 印

QF mark, namely Qualite Fleurier. In 2004, sponsored by Mr. Parmigiani, four companies, namely Parmigiani Watch Factory, Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier, Chopard and Bovet, jointly promoted the formation of a company called Fleurier Quality Foundation ‘and launched the QF Mark.

QF imprint originally had only four criteria:
1. Accuracy. In order to obtain each model of the QF mark, the movement must first be certified by the COSC Observatory (ISO 3159 standard).
2. Durability. The watch must pass a test called ‘Chronofiable’, which includes periodic push-button operation test, anti-magnetic test, impact test (excluding complicated function models), and waterproof test. The number of watches tested will be proportional to the number of watches produced. If the watch is produced within 1 ~ 100 pieces, 5 quizzes must be submitted; 101 ~ 200 pieces, 10 quizzes must be submitted; 20 or more quizzes need to be submitted.
3. Accuracy during actual wearing. Different from COSC, the watch must be placed on the ‘Fleuritest’ simulator for a 24-hour period swing test and the data recorded by the computer. On the continuously moving simulator, the watch must be maintained for 0 to +5 seconds a day. Within the error value.
4. Technical and aesthetic requirements. Like the Geneva mark, there are certain specifications for the decoration, polishing and material of the movement. For example, parts made of plastic are prohibited. All parts must be chamfered. They must be assembled by hand or mechanically, not in bulk; plating is prohibited. Nickel, unless used in stainless steel oxidation resistance … etc.
In 2012, a new rule was added to the above four specifications: 100% made in Switzerland; this rule only applies to the watch head and does not include the strap and buckle. Although any source of materials in the meter header can come from all directions, the processing of materials must be implemented locally in Switzerland; and the tasks of assembly and fine processing must of course be completed in Switzerland. In addition, if certain procedures cannot be completed in Switzerland and processed elsewhere, the Fleurier Quality Foundation is notified in advance.

Return To Jane, Taste To True

the man,
Be courageous
Climb to the top
We also need wisdom that can “stop”
Stopping, sitting forgetful

The heart has the Tigers, fine sniffing the rose
Huo Jianhua, the true, the pure heart
Taste the poetic life of Fei Lengcui
The fragrance of white truffle
Qin a rich morning
The strength of espresso
A quiet afternoon
The aroma of grape wine
Blend with the afterglow of the setting sun

When the ascension is bland
Complex and simple
Heavy to thin
The true meaning here is clear in my heart
Just like the Luminor Due watch worn by Huo Jianhua
Simple and slim
But it contains only the refined connotation

 The new Luminor Due three-day power reserve automatic red gold watch (PAM00675) is the first work in the Luminor Due series. With its exquisite movement structure and design ingenuity, it creates a slim case-its thickness is better than Luminor 1950. The model is reduced by about 40% (10.7 mm). At the same time, the sturdiness, strength and functionality of the watch are undiminished, and the unique style is even more evident.

 The watch has Panerai’s iconic crown bridge protection device, which can be recognized at a glance. The case is made of red gold, which makes it more luxurious when entering and exiting formal occasions. The design of the sandwich sandwich dial reflects the minimalist Panerai style: the important hour position is a number, the bar mark corresponds to the hour, and the auxiliary small second dial is set at 9 o’clock.

 Through the large sapphire crystal window on the back of the case, the details of the P.4000 / 10 movement are clearly visible. This movement is a precious and charming skeleton version of the P.4000 series, and it is also the thinnest automatic movement developed by Panerai Watch Factory.
 The bridge is decorated with a round frosted finish and gold-plated engraving. After hollowing out, it can see most of the structure of the movement. The most unique feature of this movement is the eccentric miniature oscillating weight that can be rotated in both directions. The 22K gold oscillating weight is decorated with Paris studs. It continuously supplies energy to two barrels, which can accumulate. Three-day power reserve.
 The balance wheel of the movement is double-supported, which is more stable and stronger than the single cantilever balance plate. The watch is also equipped with a special device that can stop the balance wheel while pulling out the winding crown to achieve time synchronization.
 The Luminor Due three-day power reserve automatic watch with a black alligator leather strap shows its deep temperament. Water-resistant to 3 bar (about 30 meters).

Hermès Heure H Series Launched A New Work, Free Choice Of Two Materials

The Heure H series watch, born in 1996 under the promotion of designer Philippe Mouquet, is a long-lasting mark of Hermes. Nowadays, its meaning has already surpassed the wristwatch and become a symbol. It has kept the vitality, vitality and freshness through time. It all comes from a unique flash of light: capturing time with a single letter. This concept is profound and interesting, and aims to frame the passing time tightly.

   The Hermes fashion show conceived a double-circle strap, condensing the brand’s exquisite leather craftsmanship, which perfectly fits the watch case, while emphasizing the watch’s unique graphic shape. The classic polished design of the alphabet ears of the case, combined with the H-shaped geometric pattern made of micro-perforation on the second band, shows the ingenuity that reflects each other. In order to create a perspective effect, the craftsman also sandwiched a thin piece of cement gray ultra-thin leather between the two layers of leather constituting the strap.

   There are two versions of the Heure H watch case carefully created by Hermès watchmakers. The first is made of stainless steel with an apricot or cinnabar red strap. The second model is plated in rose gold with a black or elephant grey strap. The white lacquered dial is embellished with four Arabic numerals and metal hands, forming a pleasing contrast with the color of the strap. The work perfectly matches Hermes’ rigorous aesthetic style and technical standards, highlighting the superb craftsmanship of professional watchmaking.

Richard Mille And Mclaren Cars Release New Collaboration Watches At The 88th Geneva Motor Show

At the 88th Geneva Motor Show, which will be unveiled on March 7, 2018, Richard Mille, CEO of RICHARD MILLE, and Mike Flewitt, CEO of McLaren Automotive Hosted a reception and released the first limited timepiece designed and built together-RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph. The watch is limited to 500 pieces worldwide, priced at 180,000 Swiss francs (tax included), and is given priority to customers of the McLaren Ultimate series.

   Since the two parties established a partnership last year, the RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph has been under development. RICHARD MILLE engineer Fabrice Namura worked closely with McLaren design director Rob Melville to work together to apply innovative materials and modern craftsmanship to inject unique designs into the collaborative watch. ‘This idea means accepting a real technical challenge and conceiving a new idea that is different from the decorative inscription on the dial.’ I find the McLaren 720S supercar designed by Rob Melville attractive and charming. We want to give RM 11-03 McLaren Aaron’s automatic flyback chronograph has similar curves that balance aesthetics and functionality, ‘said Fabrice Namura. These influences, as well as design elements borrowed from McLaren’s luxury sports and supercars, are reflected in special collaboration watches.

   The case of the RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph is made of TPT® carbon fiber and orange TPT® quartz fiber. It is lightweight and extremely durable, while paying tribute to the McLaren logo color scheme. TPT® carbon fiber reinforces the mechanical properties of the RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph, making it resistant to harsh environments.

   The titanium button on the TPT® carbon fiber case echoes the unique headlight design of the McLaren 720S supercar. Titanium inlay with decorative bezel, with McLaren logo, similar in shape to the intake pipe of a classic McLaren F1 car. Intricate Tier 5 titanium crown, like McLaren’s lightweight wheels. The McLaren Speedmark logo is integrated into a rubber strap specially developed for the timepiece.

   Under the hood of the RM 11-03 McLaren automatic flyback chronograph, it is equipped with the RMAC3 automatic movement, which was first introduced in 2016. This movement is equipped with a flyback timing function to prepare for galloping the race track. Quickly restart the time with the flyback function to zero instantly. The movement is driven by side-by-side dual springs and a variable inertia balance, with a power reserve of up to 55 hours. The winding of the mainspring is ensured by a variable geometry automatic disc. Its characteristics are that it can be effectively adjusted according to the movement of the wearer, which further proves the ingenuity of RICHARD MILLE. In fact, the racing chassis must always be able to transmit huge torques while maintaining a lightweight texture. This inspired the brand to comply with the same standards when manufacturing PVD-coated Grade 5 titanium alloy base plates and bridge plates to ensure the necessary strength and perfect performance of the running gear train. The satin-finished grade 5 titanium alloy upper bridge plate further highlights the depth of the movement, surrounding the annual calendar, oversized calendar, 12-hour cumulative chronograph and countdown display, creating a clear visual trajectory.

   With such excellent technical performance, the new RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph will be glorified at the McLaren booth at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The new watches will be exclusively available at RICHARD MILLE stores, with priority to customers of the McLaren Ultimate series. McLaren customers will also have the opportunity to purchase the RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph according to the Ultimate model number (1-500).

I Am The Most Versatile-tasting Omega Aqua Terra Chronograph

I need a diving watch, because I don’t want to lock it in a locker that does not meet safety standards when swimming. I need a dual time zone watch, because I don’t want to take the time that is not generous to calculate the time difference when I am busy overseas. I need a chronograph because I need to plan my workflow more scientifically by recording over a period of time. And this Omega (Omega) Seamaster Aqua Terra chronograph can meet all of your needs mentioned above, this watch is also Omega’s most versatile watch at the same time.

 The famous Omega Seahorse series was born in 1948. Its iconic seahorse badge pattern serves as the identity card for the hippocampus (this watch does not have this ID due to its back), which represents unparalleled accuracy and reliability. Not only that, the early hippocampus series watches have undergone rigorous testing by astronauts and navigators in the most difficult environments. The new Aqua Terra watch series not only inherits the classic characteristics of earlier models, but also uses innovative technology Craftsmanship and extraordinary design.

 The current hippocampus series has two most important families, one is the ‘Marine Universe’ family, and the other is the Aqua Terra family of this watch mentioned today. The name ‘Aqua Terra’ means water and land. From this, It is not difficult to see the name of the family, it is to join forces with the marine universe family to let the hippocampus cross the ocean, the universe, the land and the lake.
Appearance

 
Since Aqua Terra belongs to the hippocampus series, it is still closely linked to the marine theme, so the dial design was inspired by the teak deck on the luxury yacht.

We call the vertical texture adopted by the dial as decoration ‘Teak concept’. These vertical stripes can be said to be exquisitely crafted, the layers and texture are very full, and this dial also has a black version, which looks even cooler!

 This watch is definitely the kind of watch that looks very horrifying. Let’s not say anything else, these 7 hands are enough for you to look at it for a long time. It can be said that it is one of Omega’s most hands. The 3 o’clock position is the 30-minute cumulative chronograph hand; the 6 o’clock position is the 12-hour cumulative chronograph hand; the 9 o’clock position is the small second hand; the red thread hand above the hour and minute hands is the large chronograph second hand, which will move only when the time is started. Don’t think it’s broken because it doesn’t move. Finally, the red arrow pointer is the most practical. It can indicate the time between the two places by indicating the numbers on the outer circle.

 In general, we refer to the hands that have ‘arrows’ at the ends of the hour, minute, and second hands as broadsword hands. Since this watch has only the hour hand and no arrows, we call them small broadsword hands.

 I think it is necessary for me to spread a little common knowledge about the ‘Broad Sword’ pointer here. ‘Broad Arrow’ is an accurate paraphrase of ‘BroadArrow’ in English. The history of this pointer should be earlier than the watch itself. In fact, the Broadsword pointer is not only used in the hippocampus series, but also in the Speedmaster series. It seems that the Speedmaster is used earlier. some. Especially in the past 20 years, there seems to be an unwritten rule that the configuration of a watch using a wide arrow pointer is generally higher than that of a watch that is not used. The size is slightly larger first, and then there is a higher chance of using a precious metal bezel, case or high-performance movement. The reason is simple, that is, it is more difficult to process a set of broad arrow pointers than ordinary fluorescent pointers. Although the hippocampus of this small broadsword pointer may not be as high as the hippocampus of the broadsword pointer in some aspects, its rich functions are also remarkable.

 The case diameter of this watch is 44 mm. For Asians, this size seems to be a bit large, but don’t worry, the beautiful lug curve of this watch will dissolve any discomfort invisible.

 Some people say that the quality of a watch is the best way to explain it. But I would like to say that a well polished movement can prove the craftsmanship of this brand, and a well polished case can prove the strength of this brand (the investment in manufacturing the case is much larger than the movement). Omega does the same for the case and the movement. We can take a closer look at the side of this watch. The material of this watch is 316L austenitic stainless steel, although it uses two of our most common types of stainless steel. Method, brushed and polished, but Omega is the magical conversion of these two kinds of grinding. Let’s pay attention to the intersection of drawing and polishing. The transition is so natural. This deep skill is not powerful and cannot be done!

 Let’s look at the other side of the watch. Although this side only has wire drawing and polishing, I want to say that wire drawing and polishing are very common, but it is very difficult to draw the so-called wire very fine and smooth, so we call the top wire drawing technology It’s satin-finished, and everyone can see if its sides are like satin.

We see that not only the case, but the bracelet has performed the same polishing standards as the case. No wonder the metal bracelet is several times more expensive than the leather strap.

 This watch uses the traditional double-folding clasp, which is not only more comfortable, but also easy to pick, and every detail of the clasp is also meticulous.
Features

 Because it is called a hippocampus, it must be a diving watch. Therefore, the small second dial at 9 o’clock indicates its waterproof depth (150 meters / 500 meters). Although this depth is an entry level in the hippocampus, But this is also enough for you to have no worries when swimming or snorkeling.

Let’s not forget that it is a chronograph, but it should be regarded as the most artistic chronograph in Haimari. Its chronograph button does not use the round button with a lock like the Ocean Universe, but uses a more The atmospheric pear-shaped key, although its water resistance may not be as good as the one with a buckle, but it is very suitable from the perspective of viewing and playing (really more comfortable than a circle).

 The most practical function of this watch is to count the functions of two places, so this watch specially marked the three letters of GMT into eye-catching red, and also used the same relief mosaic technique as the Logo (even the series names are Is printed), it is obvious that this function is important for this watch. The eye-catching red arrow pointer reminds you of your home time by means of the 24-hour scale on the outermost circle.
Movement articles

 
At present, there are four main sources of movements for Haima’s series of mechanical watches: Omega’s own 8-series and 9-series coaxial silicon escapement movements; FP automatic chronograph wheel stopwatch movements; improved 7750 machines The ETA movement with the coaxial escapement replaced, and the movement of our watch today is a very artistic FP movement.

FP is the abbreviation of Swiss Frédéric Piguet (Frederick Pige) movement factory, currently this movement factory is controlled by Blancpain watch factory. Historically, Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin have also been users of FP advanced movements. The FP movement factory has a famous high-level automatic chronograph movement, named FP1185, which was renamed 3303 after it was used by Omega. Because this watch is equipped with a dual time zone module on this movement, it is called 3603. This movement is an automatic column-wheel chronograph movement (there are only a handful of movements of this specification in the world). Due to the high level of manufacture and polishing of this movement, it has always been regarded as a collector Jiapin.

After using this movement, Omega can be said to make a key upgrade for it, turning the ordinary escapement of the movement into the Omega’s unique coaxial escapement, so that this movement does not affect the feel of the timing button Under the premise, it has excellent accuracy. It can be said that this movement improved by Omega can definitely be regarded as one of the most accurate automatic column-wheel chronograph movements in the world.

 In addition, let’s take a look at the polishing of this movement. The edges of the plywood are smooth and rich in texture. Every screw, compression spring, gear and main wheel mechanism are shiny and pleasing, so it is not exaggerated to say that it is literary. .

 This watch is not only versatile, it has strong practical value and can meet your daily needs; it can also become a work of art. This beautiful movement is enough to let you put it down when playing late at night, although this machine The core does not use Omega’s latest silicon escapement, but this does not affect its artistic attributes, but rather nostalgia for tradition. The price of 68300 is a good value for a beautiful and moderate watch!
