New Generation Hand-wound Movement Debuts Grand Seiko Elegance

GRAND SEIKO recently launched a new series called Elegance, this has several refreshing features, including its case is ultra-thin design, dial decoration process and past brand watches It’s a little different, and more importantly, it’s also replaced with a brand-newly-developed bracelet movement developed by the brand 9S63, which left a deep impression at the beginning of the year.

GRAND SEIKO’s new work Elegance is equipped with the brand’s new bracelet movement 9S63. Its ultra-thin design and refreshed faceplate layout and decoration process show a new look different from previous GS watches.

It is surprising that such a new product from head to toe was first exposed in Baselworld. I don’t know if there will be any more powerful new works of GRAND SEIKO after Baselworld is launched to open our eyes. Speaking of this Elegance series, the brand’s first wave launched four styles, including two rose gold models, one gold model, and a stainless steel model that certainly has a lot of price points.

Elegance series launched two rose gold models, one gold model and one stainless steel model. Among them, precious metals are painted with painted faceplates, especially the rose gold models with “GS” time stamps are also made with dill painting process. High process specifications

The case of the Elegance series is 39mm. As mentioned above, it has an ultra-thin case design. In fact, the thickness is 11.6mm. This is not a record-breaking ultra-thin shape, but it is relatively thinner than a general three-hand watch. . The round case design of the watch is more distinctive because of the lugs, because the lugs narrow down from the bezel all the way down, and the cut surface of the lugs is not as sharp as the GS models in our past. It looks like People have a sense of sturdiness and shortness. At present, such a design is uncertain whether it is designed to be more comfortable when worn. When the subsequent models are officially listed, if there are table friends to take the lead to share their own experience of wearing watches.

The dial pattern of the watch is a simple small three-pin, and a power reserve indicator is provided at 3 o’clock to remind the watch owner to pay attention to the three-day power reserve period of the movement.

Elegance’s rose gold styles all use lacquered dials. These dials are from ochre workshops owned by GS. The two rose gold models are equipped with brown and black lacquered faces, respectively, and the time stamps of the models and the 12 o’clock direction. The word ‘GS’ is still processed with dill painting technique, and the whole looks quite texture. Compared to the lacquer design of the rose gold model, the silver and white lacquered dial of the gold model is relatively simple. With gold inlaid hour markers, it is relatively low-key at first glance, but carefully appreciate the various details on the dial. Japanese watchmaking On the contrary, the fineness of the product is more prominent, and it can also highlight the solid craftsmanship of GRAND SEIKO. The next thing to see is the blue dial of stainless steel. Its dial has the ‘Iwateyama pattern’ that appears from time to time in the GS model. As the name suggests, it is at the edge of Iwateyama where SII watch factory is located, and it is integrated into authentic Japan. The characteristics of watchmaking culture make the stainless steel face plate as unique and attractive.

Elegance’s round case with wide upper and lower narrow lugs is quite distinctive, and the actual wearing feels curious.

It has been about eight years since GRAND SEIKO last launched the hand-wound movement. This time, the 9S63 movement is well-prepared, including its shock frequency of 28800vph and a power reserve of 72 hours. ), More in line with modern market demand, and in the time display pattern on the watch face, in addition to the central hour and minute hands, there is a small second hand at 9 o’clock, and the power reserve display at 3 o’clock, it seems this will The brand’s new generation of basic movements.

The accuracy of the 9S63 movement is more accurate than the Swiss C.O.S.C. certification standard. At the same time, the blue steel screw is enabled on the movement, which is also a new attempt for GRAND SEIKO.

GRAND SEIKO said that the daily error value of the 9S63 movement falls between -3 and +5 seconds, which is probably a little more accurate than the Swiss COSC certification standard, and given the rigorous personality of the Japanese watch factory, such data is still used in daily wear. It may be more stunning for the wearer. In addition, the 9S63 movement has a special feature worth mentioning. In the past, the 9S movement looked all silver and white tones. So do n’t forget to pay attention to this latest design feature when you turn to the case back to appreciate the movement.

It’s Time To Find A Home For The Watch

In the 1980s and 1990s, the European mechanical watches that broke the haze of the ‘Quartz Revolution’ received a great revival. After thinking about reincarnation for nearly two decades, people discovered that mechanical things are really long-lasting things. Such is the case with high-end watches, high-end cars, high-end cameras, as well as high-end mechanical music boxes that the top luxury people use to decorate the room. When society has a certain degree of ownership of high-end mechanical clocks, there is a huge market for professional peripherals serving them.

   A slogan is the most seductive: ‘You don’t always let your Ferrari stop at the side of the road, do you?’ Treating your love form is even more the same. High-end watches require the perfect HOS, which is the ‘time treasure box’. Not only can the watch get a good rest in the house, but it can also be recharged (for real automatic winding) and work mentally the next day. The birth of the time treasure box was not the brainstorm of two German guys. As the introduction belongs, it has its huge historical background.

   So in 1995 in Germany, two childhood friends, Harald Buben and Christian Zorweg, who had graduated from the same university, studied law and business majors respectively. It is said that they have bright career prospects. But this is not the case. Highly mature business societies like Germany offer very few opportunities to young people. Just when the duo had no idea about their future, their common interests helped a lot. Buben and Zorweg both love watches. However, the two young men with entrepreneurial spirit and keen observation did not enter a certain watch school, but formed a company. Buben & Zorweg, a company that created ‘Time Boxes’. After two years of unremitting efforts, the first generation of time treasure boxes specially released for watch enthusiasts and collectors came into being. The two founders of the company are very happy. It combines professional technology and high-level appearance design. It is said that the technology of ELMA, a famous German school meter, is also used in its research and development and production.

   Twenty years later, Buben & Zorweg has evolved and developed, and a time treasure box with a high intelligence with a pause function (a 10-hour pause every 24 hours can avoid the wear of the watch’s automatic winding system) was born. One of the big guys named Timer Mover Grande Precision can accommodate 48 watches at the same time. The treasure box (precisely the cabinet) also comes with an extremely skilled Erwin Sattler clock in the center. At that time, it sold for 1.35 million yuan, and its value even surpassed most of the top luxury watches. Today the domestic selling price is close to 1.66 million yuan. At this year’s Basel show, B & Z also launched a special watch box in the shape of Iron Man. In short, we all need to find a real home.

Exploring Mysterious Time Travel Tasting Rotonde De Cartier Mystery Watch

If Cartier Rotonde de Cartier double mysterious tourbillon watch has performed a unique visual feast for us, then the Rotonde de Cartier mysterious watch brought to you today is definitely not for everyone. It is strange to think that it is a master from the dual mysterious tourbillon watch, and also uses our visual sense to create a mysterious atmosphere.

The mysterious and ethereal Rotonde de Cartier watch, with its psychedelic vision of the pointer suspended in the air, makes the viewer hold their breath and stare. The extremely concise appearance design often makes people forget that its mysterious and magical time display actually comes from the sophisticated and complicated clock structure. In fact, in order to make this new Cartier movement perfect, Cartier’s watchmakers had to thoroughly re-examine traditional mechanical principles. The goal was to overcome a series of technical problems caused by driving large-sized sapphire wafer discs. The contradiction of this type of mechanical device is that the complex timepiece structure that requires hundreds of hours of design calculations is cleverly hidden under the simple time display.

Actually speaking of Cartier’s mysterious time this time has to say is a brief history of mysterious time. In Cartier’s history, the mysterious clock has occupied a pivotal chapter. The reason why the mysterious clock is ‘mysterious’ is because its hands made of platinum and diamonds seem to be suspended above the transparent clock body, without any connection to the movement. In 1912, the first mysterious clock was born and named Model A. To this day, the production of the mysterious clock has never stopped, and its development has always revolved around Cartier’s most important design inspiration and creative theme. For more than a century, Cartier still firmly holds this mysterious skill.

The Rotonde de Cartier mystery watch has a diameter of 42 mm and is made of 18K rose gold or 18K white gold. The minimalist case design uses sophisticated polishing and polishing, even without the slightest decoration, it can reflect extraordinary quality This is how intuitive Cartier brought me.

The watch uses a white electroplated dial, a silver-plated hollow frosted grille, with a sunray radiation effect, and black transfer of Roman numerals. In fact, this eccentric watch is always reminiscent of a German wrist. The unique charm of the watch, I do not know what practical purpose Cartier is for, but the overall effect is really good.

In fact, the whole watch is the most curious, and its essence is this sapphire crystal wafer plate. The pointer is generally light and integrated with the dial to complete the function of indicating the time. Revealed in the next article.

The watch is designed with sapphire crystal back. In addition to being able to appreciate the perfect details of the movement, the dial and hands of the sapphire crystal have aroused even greater curiosity.

创作 To create a mysterious watch, the watchmaker at Cartier Watch Workshop must do everything in his power to overcome all the inherent limitations, making the hands perfectly connected to the movement without any notice. In order to reduce the friction between the sapphire crystal wafers, the watchmaker decided to rotate it around the thin axis, which is similar to the operation of the gears, instead of the traditional way that the mysterious clock usually operates through the guide groove.
全新 This new concept is combined with the pointer wheel to avoid friction while reducing the energy consumption of the movement. When friction is reduced to a minimum, the next step is to optimize the inertia of these large-sized sapphire wafers with a total weight of only 0.56 grams by using gear units made with deep reactive ion etching (DRIE). Relying on this cutting-edge advanced technology, metal parts can be manufactured in three-dimensional construction, thereby creating integrated gears that are highly compatible with sapphire crystal wafer discs, so that the geometric accuracy of the assembly reaches micron level.

神秘 Due to the use of sapphire crystal wafers, mysterious display timepieces are often considered more fragile than traditional complex movements. The innovative design of the 9981 MC manual-winding movement allows it to pass a series of rigorous tests and tests, including resistance to 500 consecutive impacts and a drop from a meter to the ground. This dazzling transparent movement has a high degree of stability and precision, with a balance frequency of up to 4 Hz (28,800 times per hour) and a 48-hour power reserve. The balance of the Rotonde de Cartier mysterious watch is so captivating that it penetrates the transparent charm into every detail. In fact, the individually numbered manual-winding mechanical movement part of the watch exposed on the back is just the side that Cartier is willing to present to the world.

Summary: In the past, Louis Cartier has refused to explain to sales staff how the mystery clock works in case its secrets are leaked. Today in the Rotonde de Cartier mysterious watch, the mechanism that connects the movement and hands is hidden in the structure of the movement through ingenious design, which is still invisible and invisible, so that the magical charm can continue. Regarding the price, I believe it must be around one million, so as ordinary table friends, appreciation is the best choice.

The outermost circle of the entire dial is a speed measurement scale ring for speed measurement. The pilot obtains the speed data through calculation. Through the back, you can see the propeller-shaped rotor of the aircraft made of red gold. When the automatic rotor rotates, it doesn’t look like the aircraft engine starts? Blancpain Air Force Commander Limited Edition Chronograph Blancpain Air Force Commander Limited Edition Chronograph Actually, Blancpain has also upgraded this watch technically. In order to make the timing more accurate, this watch The F388B movement used has a vibration frequency of up to 5 Hz, the accuracy of the timing has been improved to 1/10 seconds, and the flyback function that has not yet appeared in the year is added. In fact, when playing with this Air Force Commander watch, his timing feels very good, very smooth and crisp. Blancpain’s benchmarking Fifty Fathoms series also launched two retro watches this year, the Barakuda watch and the ‘Frogman Commando’ limited edition watch. Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Barakuda Limited Watch Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Barakuda Limited Watch Real Shot Barakuda is a German company that manufactures and sells professional diving equipment. At that time, Blancpain’s diving watches were used by the German Navy. This company also launched a civilian version, which is very popular. This watch is full of German-style aesthetics. The design of the black dial combined with the large red and white hour markers is very eye-catching. The large white calendar window is also adjusted from the four or five o’clock position to the three o’clock position. layout. The 40mm size is also smaller than other models, and it also has a retro feel of the last century when worn on the hand. This diameter is also a special size that only this limited edition has. Blancpain Fifty Fathoms ‘Frogman Commando’ Limited Watch Blancpain Fifty Fathoms ‘Frogman Commando’ Limited Watch Hands-on shot ‘Frogman Commando’ limited watch is to commemorate with France With the cooperation of the Navy Frogman Commando, many elements of the Frogman Commando can be found on the watch. Attentive friends can see the looming number 7 at 6 o’clock. What is the special meaning of this number? Everyone knows that concealment is very important in combat. At that time, the frogman unit used a pure oxygen internal circulation underwater breathing apparatus in order to prevent air bubbles when diving near the target. Under the limit of this set of equipment The diving depth is 7 meters. If the diving depth exceeds 7 meters, the diver will experience symptoms of drunkenness. The number 7 at 6 o’clock is to mark the depth of this important military operation. The caseback is engraved with the logo of the French Frogman Commando, an anchor surrounded by two winged seahorses. This watch uses a silicon hairspring, has a dynamic storage of up to five days, and is water-resistant to 300 meters. Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms ceramic red gold watch is also a new model of the Fifty Fathoms that will be paired with red gold rings and blue ceramic discs for the first time. This watch gives the impression that the real object is much better than the photo. The combination of red gold and blue ceramic is very low-key and luxurious. The blue ceramic of the dial is matt-coated on the outer ring, which contrasts with the glossy texture of the middle area and diving ring, which also makes the watch more layered in different light. The biggest highlight of Blancpain’s 2019 women’s collection is the goose-shaped calendar window and the newly launched macaron green strap. As a newly introduced element, the ‘goose egg window’ is perfectly combined with Villeret’s classic iconic designs, such as a round double-layer bezel and hollowed-out willow-shaped hands. The numbers shown on the date are also carefully designed with swashes, which complement the curvaceous beauty of the watch as a whole. Blancpain equipped this women’s watch with a set of five alligator leather straps and Mille Mailles grid texture bracelet, with quick release function, changing the strap to match the clothing without pressure, of which the macaron green strap is Blancpain has adopted this color matching for the first time. I believe that this more relaxed and lively, vibrant and elegant color will be loved by girls.

The classic watch has always been one of the best choices for formal watches.
