Treasures Join Hands With The Antique Watch Association To Spend The Night Of Time And Space Across London

On Thursday, October 29, Breguet and the Antique Watch Association held a special evening to explore treasures of Breguet’s timepieces in London boutiques.

   That night, two of the most recognized industry experts, Andrew Crisford (author of Abraham-Louis Breguet, Master Watchmaker and Master Marketer) and Jonathan Betts (Vice Chairman of the Antique Watch Association) also came to the scene as guest speakers for VIP The VIP and members of the Classical Watch Association explained the past and present of Breguet timepieces.

   In the evening, guests enjoyed the ancient and the modern, while exploring the beautiful Breguet modern watches, and at the same time watching the Breguet antique watches from private collections. Accompanying the exhibition was a certificate written by Master Abraham-Louis Breguet in the early 18th century. As one of the anti-counterfeiting signs, Breguet timepieces became even more precious.

Lange A.Lange & Söhne’s New Training Year Has Now Begun

Lange A. Lange & Söhn’s new year training course has begun on August 19, 2013. Seventeen young students from different regions of Germany have passed pre-qualification. They will learn more about the mysteries of Lange’s watchmaking skills in the next three years. The watch factory trains two mold craftsmen at the same time. Lange currently has 41 students who specialize in making watches and molds.

Lange is training 41 young students

But why are young people of this generation aspiring to be watchmakers? In fact, they are mostly technological ‘fanatics.’ Others are inspired by relatives and friends in the industry. Someone originally wanted to be an actor, but found that the workbench for making a movement with a diameter of 30 mm was the stage for their talents. Laura Schreiber is one of them. One day, she attended a professional exhibition. In front of the Lange booth, she picked up a piece of metal and started assembling. From that moment, she clearly found her life goal. This year is the third year of Laura’s apprenticeship with Lange. She will share with us her past training experience and her outlook for the future.
 ‘We can think of a mechanical movement as a complex three-dimensional puzzle consisting of up to 500 parts with a diameter of 3 cm. Many of these parts weigh only a few milligrams and can only be seen under a magnifying glass. However, when you complete This jigsaw puzzle, the entire complex device instantly breathes life into it, it feels very wonderful. One of the fascinating aspects of watchmaking is that you can see the results you have built with your own hands.
 However, I also have a long way to go to make a fully functioning watch. It all started at the Lange Watch School. On the first class day two years ago, Katja König, the principal instructor, explained to us the content of the course. I couldn’t believe that I would learn so much about watchmaking in three years. The first week passed quickly. I met future colleagues in various departments. In the teaching studio, I personally tried basic metalworking techniques such as filing, sawing, turning, drilling, and taking theoretical classes at the vocational school in Glashütte.

 Six months later, we finally had access to the coveted timing device. Initially, the instructor used a clock movement to show us the mechanical components and explain the functions one by one. Before the end of the first year of apprenticeship training, the instructor asked me to see the work of other watchmakers in the watch factory. Within three weeks, I went to different production departments to gain experience and met many new colleagues. This was the first time I felt I became a real watchmaker.
 In the second year, we gradually started making watches. First of all, we need to understand the design, function and repair process of pocket watches, which has been the starting point for all things Lange has done for 165 years. For me, the most important thing is to build your first watch.
 During the mid-term test of apprenticeship training, I demonstrated everything I learned at the time by operating the perfect components. I was very successful that time!
 This year is the third year and I have entered the final stage of the training! I have a lot to learn, such as self-winding watches, big calendars, chronographs and other extra watch functions. In addition, I was selected to participate in the exchange program at the Danish School of Watchmaking in Ringsted. I will work with a colleague from Denmark to complete a watch. I will personally polish and decorate the surface of all parts. I also personally adjust the amplitude of the watch to make the time display accurate to the second. Training in Ringsted is not only important for clocks, but fluent English is also important. Fortunately, Lange offers language courses throughout the apprenticeship program, giving me the confidence to get everything done smoothly.

 For Lange apprentices, one of the special challenges of the third year was participating in an international competition for future watchmakers. This is a great opportunity to showcase creativity and craftsmanship. Former students of Lange have won the competition twice.
 Final exams are getting closer. If I get good grades, I meet the requirements agreed at the beginning of the apprenticeship and can stay at Lange full-time. I really look forward to it. ‘

Hermès Play Time Time Pause Watch

The Arceau Le Temps Suspendu watch brings a chance to experience rest and pause under the premise that time is not controlled. When the button on the 38mm case is pressed, the hour and minute hands stop at 12 o’clock. The time was thus erased from the dial, derailed from standard time, and moved invisibly at the same time. Press the button again and the time is back on track and it works as usual. Eyes were instantly locked on the small 24-second dial, the vivid hands were running counterclockwise endlessly, mocking the passage of time in a unique way.

 Behind the rotation of hands like ballet toes hides a set of smart mechanisms developed exclusively by Hermaine to direct the operation of this unique and complex watch function. The movement has two patents: one is the overall structure of the movement, and the other is play-reducing gear teeth. It is an additional module of the homemade movement H1912. The run-time and stop-time modes are synchronized with two column wheels: one for the hours and the other for the minutes. This 360-degree flyback hour and minute function makes time disappear instantly, but the movement of the movement is not suspended. The fourth gear runs in the opposite direction, allowing time to advance without interruption, and is displayed on the movement indicator of the movement.

 Arceau Le Temps Suspendu watch (stainless steel), priced at NT $ 643,000.

2015 Best Swiss Brands Rolex Fourth Omega Eleventh Philippe Eighteenth

Interbrand, a world-renowned brand consulting company, just released the list of ‘2015 Best Swiss Brands’. This list is based on the company’s financial statement comprehensive evaluation of the brand market valuation (but not the company’s total assets, nor represents the group assets) as the main data, ranking Swiss domestic brands, to get the list of the 50 most valuable Swiss brands single. WatchTraveler organizes this important ranking.
   In this 50 best list, you can see many Swiss watch brands. ‘Watch Traveler WatchWatcher’ found that there are actually 16 Swiss watch brands on the list, accounting for 32%, which is one-third of the strongest! It is the top 50 brands in the industry. This shows the position of fine watchmaking in ‘Made in Switzerland’.
   Among them, Rolex, Omega, Patek Philippe and other well-known brands in China are among them, and are ranked higher. Rolex is 4th, Omega is 11th, and Patek Philippe is 18th.
   (The chart below is compiled by WatchTraveler based on data released by Interbrand. Reprint or use requires contact with the publisher for permission. Note: MIO.CHF in the figure is the valuation unit of millions of Swiss francs. May 18, 2015 , 1 Swiss franc is 6.776.)

   There are 16 Swiss watch brands on the 50 list, among which Rolex, Omega and Patek Philippe rank in the top three in the watch industry. Famous watch brands are mainly concentrated between 24-42.
   In the past year, the rankings of famous watch brands have mostly improved, and their valuations have basically increased. Among them, the most significant increase in the valuation of Patek Philippe (15%), Longines (9%), Vacheron Constantin (9%) and Breitling (9%). Comparing the 2015 ranking with the 2014 ranking, Rolex rose from 5th place in 2014 to 4th place, and Patek Philippe rose from 21st place to 18th place in 2014.

   ‘Watch Traveler WatchWatcher’ found that among the 16 Swiss watch brands on the list, the world’s largest professional watchmaking group Swatchgroup Swatch Group accounted for 6 brands, powerful, several major gold-absorbing brands Omega, Longines, Tissot, Swatch, Radar and the most important high-end brand Breguet are all included. At the same time, the three traditional and well-known Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Piguet, and several independent watchmaking brands such as Rolex, Chopard, and Breitling (patek Philippe also holds this identity) among the Swiss watch brands are on the list.
   At the same time, from 2014 to 2015, the “Best Swiss Brands” brand has the largest increase in brand value, 8 of which are luxury watch brands.

   The following is a list of the 2014 ‘Best Swiss Brands’ for reference:

   Swiss watch brands account for a large proportion of the ‘Best Swiss Brands’ list, which shows the status of Swiss watches in Swiss manufacturing, and also shows the global influence of Swiss watches. However, the Swiss watch manufacturing industry is not the most important in Swiss GNP, at least behind precision instrument manufacturing and medical and pharmaceutical industries. Switzerland’s finance and insurance industry is also extremely developed and is also one of the pillars of national production. The Swiss watch industry’s total exports in 2014 were a record 24 billion US dollars, which is the entire industry’s export value. For Novartis or Roche, sales of more than $ 50 billion each in 2014.
   Therefore, the watch industry is a small industry, but it has a great impact. Watches and clocks are not only a favorite practical product, but also cultural, historical, technological and artistic value. It is practical, playable, enjoyable, easily collectible, and can be passed down for a long time. Few other things have special value like clockwork.

Brilliant Starry Sky Commentary On Portugal Sidérale Scafusia Watch

The Mid-Autumn Festival is coming once a year. The family always gather together to spend the Mid-Autumn Festival and enjoy the moon together. While watching the moon, we can also see the sky full of stars. I don’t know which bright star to focus on. If you do n’t want to look up at the starry sky, start with a starry sky watch. The Mid-Autumn Festival is really looking up at the moon and looking down at the stars. Today’s watch home brings you a brief review of the Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia watch, the official model is: IW5041.

 The Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia watch is the most unique and complex mechanical watch ever made by IWC. In addition to the dial design seen on the front, the star map on the back is the biggest feature of this watch. Some people may not know how to look at the starry sky watch. Today’s watch home will take everyone to study this starry sky watch.

 The Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia watch can provide two different methods of side-by-side timing. The time displayed on the front of the watch is the average solar time, which is our daily time. We can also know that the small second hand of the watch is set at 9 o’clock. Bit of a spherical tourbillon device. Let’s take a closer look at the front dial of the watch with the Watch House.

 The small dial set at ’12 o’clock’ shows the 24-hour stellar hour (star hour), which is the timing system adopted by astronomers. The time shown here is 8: 3 am. The year-round error between the stellar hour display and the actual star time is only 11.5 seconds.

 Constant power tourbillon and small seconds, the new combination of tourbillon and constant power device, to ensure accurate and average speed of at least 48 hours. In constant power mode, the small second hand moves once every second. After that, the power shifts to normal mode, speeding up to a beat every fifth second.

The watch has a power reserve display at 4 to 5 o’clock on the front face of the watch. It is fully wound and the watch can provide a 96-hour power reserve.

 After reading the front, then look at the back. What secrets are hidden on the bottom of this watch? This is the beautiful and mysterious starry sky chart. What is the use of the starry sky chart? What do you think? This is the question of most people, and now Watch House will use this watch to explain the specific role of this star map in detail.

 The first is the whole of the star map. This whole shows the night sky stars that can be viewed at a specific point on the earth. This point can be calculated independently according to customer requirements, so the starry sky map displayed at different points is also different.

 The horizon and geographic coordinates, the night sky view that can be viewed from the geographic coordinates (yellow coordinates) specified by the customer, will be displayed in the yellow oval (see the previous full picture).

 This is a two-day counter (sequential date) that displays the number of days in a year and sets the leap year display. The picture shows the 188th day of a leap year, which is July 8, 2012.

 The red arrow with dots indicates the average solar time on a 24-hour circle. Read time from the outer circle. Solar time refers to the time required for the sun to cross the same meridian twice.

 A yellow arrow with a star symbol indicates star time on a 24-hour circle. Read the time from the inner circle in the same way. Stellar hour refers to the time required for a star to cross the same meridian twice.

 Sunrise and sunset times. When running at standard time, two red triangle hands mark the sunrise and sunset times on the 24-hour outer circle. One hour is added during daylight saving time (DST + 1) operation.

Zodiacal, red circle shows the obvious orbit of the sun on the celestial sphere throughout the year.

 Celestial equator, gray dotted circle indicates celestial equator. It is the projection of the Earth’s equator on the celestial sphere and forms a circular plane separating the northern and southern hemispheres. The following watch home will explain the difference between the day, night and twilight display of the astrolabe.

 Sunset is the time when the last part of the sun disappears from the horizon. Since the inclination of the Earth’s rotation varies from day to day, sunset times vary throughout the year. It also depends on the longitude, latitude, and elevation of the selected location. If you are in the northern part of the Arctic Circle or in the southern part of the Antarctic Circle, you will not be able to see sunrise and sunset at all days of the year.

 Dawn is the time when the sky is no longer completely dark before sunrise. Dusk is the time when the sky is not completely dark after sunset. Twilight is the time between dawn and sunrise, and between sunset and dusk.

 Sunset is the time when the last part of the sun disappears from the horizon. Since the inclination of the Earth’s rotation varies from day to day, sunset times vary throughout the year. It also depends on the longitude, latitude, and elevation of the selected location. If you are in the northern part of the Arctic Circle or in the southern part of the Antarctic Circle, you will not be able to see sunrise and sunset at all days of the year.

 The watch is equipped with the 94900 manual winding movement independently developed by IWC, which consists of more than 500 independent parts. Among them, the basic movement and the astronomical module are combined. The ever-changing tourbillon with constant power, allowing viewers to explore the fine structure of the balance device. The tourbillon’s frame and upper half are made of titanium. The rhodium-plated escape wheel and nickel-silver stop splint are chamfered by hand.

To sum up: Although we are not literati saints, we also like to look up at the sky, from the stars’ ever-ending flashes, looking for the secret of time. The watch uses a variety of case materials, five different dial colors, various applique scales and strap colors, and strap materials, with more than 200 different designs to choose from. Due to the complexity of the watch, production is extremely limited.

Raymond Weil Champagne 43 Mm Intenso Watch

The design is strong, noble and elegant, and the case made of steel and titanium is tough and light-this is the new Champagne Intenso watch from Raymond Weil. This timepiece continues the creation of the Raymond Weil watch, inspired by the famous opera ‘Nabucco’ written by Giuseppe Verdi. However, this new model brings a major breakthrough: the size of the watch is still noticeable, but the case diameter has been reduced from the original 46 mm to 43 mm. The new look of the Champagne City Intenso watch will surely attract more fans to join the high-end elite club composed of the watch owners, the charm is irresistible.
   In 2007, the Champagne City series made its grand debut under the leadership of the third generation of the Raymond Weil family. The series is lively, noble, elegant, and powerful, and it is fascinated by watch connoisseurs of different cultural backgrounds around the world. However, not all connoisseurs are suitable for wearing their favorite things. But now things have changed. Champagne’s famous chronograph is cleverly housed in a 43 mm diameter Intenso case.
    Although the case diameter of this new model is three millimeters smaller, it is still dazzling: the lugs are powerful and with rounded corners, comfortable and natural on the wrist; the overall shape is perfectly coordinated, and polished steel and Made of titanium. Other characteristics of this watch are also unique: the speedometer is set on the bezel; three auxiliary dials are set at 3 o’clock (30 minutes), 6 o’clock (12 hours) and 9 o’clock (small seconds) Location; round date display window is located between 4 and 5 o’clock; tough calendar buttons and a large number 12 also show its unique charm, while the latter with a luminous display function shows the noble style of the work itself. At the same time, the black dazzling dial is also equipped with a subtle gray auxiliary dial and a checkered background surrounded by concentric circles. Finally, the blue-steel chronograph hands contrast with the light and dark background. The 43mm case with black alligator-embossed rubber strap is comfortable yet tough, and perfectly matches the charm of the collection. In designing the new Champagne Intenso with a diameter of 43 mm, Raymond Weil focused on subtleties to show its superb watchmaking technology, without compromising the overall sharp temperament. There is no doubt that the Champagne Intenso watch will continue to write legends.

After The Launch Of The 2017 Version Of The Hippocampus At, How Should The Three Generations Of The Hippocampus At Be Selected?

It is not too late to get to the topic. I always think that the Omega Seahorse Aqua Terra (ie, the Hippocampus AT) is the most worthy watch for Omega. Although, from the perspective of the status and irreplaceability of the watch, if I only choose one Omega, I would not hesitate to choose the Omega manual moon landing supercar. However, from the perspective of many enthusiasts and players, the hippocampus AT is undoubtedly the best choice for daily life. Omega Seahorse AT has a convincing brand position; reasonable price; easy to identify appearance; luxurious decoration and workmanship; good technical configuration. In all aspects, it has reached the best level in the price range it belongs to. Among them, the special models of ‘water ripples’ and ‘007’ show a sense of luxury that exceeds the same price and the same level of watches.

The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra ‘007’ version has a luxury feel that exceeds the price of watches of the same price.
   As we all know, among the major mainstream brands, Omega is faster than the new generation. We know that in the car, the basic model is changed every three years and six years, and every year, small changes are made every year. The update of watches is usually very slow. Like Rolex, updating a ceramic ring, the update process on each series will take several years. In contrast, as soon as Omega has new technological achievements, it will immediately apply and launch a new generation of watches. The rapid change of models keeps Omega at the forefront of the horological world. There is no doubt that the technical density of the Omega Co-Axial movement is very high. If you only talk about the technical content of watches, no watch in production watches can exceed Omega. The only problem is that the rapid change of old and new will accelerate the decline of the value of old models.
   According to the current news, the Omega Sea Horse Aqua Terra has been remodeled again this year, and the 2017 version of the Sea Horse Aqua Terra has been launched. Although the 2017 version of the hippocampus AT has not yet appeared on Omega’s official website, it is expected to be public soon. At that time, there will be three generations of hippocampal ATs on the market at the same time, namely the hippocampus AT using the 8500 movement; the hippocampus AT using the coaxial coaxial movement; the 2017 new version of the hippocampus AT. What I want to do today is to show you these three generations of hippocampal ATs, and how to choose between them.
First of all, let’s take a look at the Aqua Terra (non-universal coaxial) of the hippocampus using the 8500 movement.

Although using the 8500 movement (non-Zhengzheng coaxial version) of the hippocampus Aqua Terra is not a model in the store, but there are still a large number of circulation, the price is lower.
   The current situation is that the Seahorse AT using the 8500 movement is no longer sold in Omega stores. At present, the Seahorse AT sold in Omega stores are all coaxial models. However, in the market and in the private sector, there are still a large number of 8500 caliber hippocampus ATs for sale. Since it is no longer available in specialty stores, the price of the Calibre 8500 Haima AT has fallen. Interested players can follow. The method of distinguishing the 8500 Hippocampus AT from the Zhizheng coaxial movement Haima AT is very simple. The 8500 Haima writes CO-AXIAL on the disk, and the Zhizheng coaxial movement Haima writes MASTER CO-AXIAL. In addition, there is a very intuitive method. See if there is a ‘frame’ in the calendar. With the metal frame of the frame is the 8500 hippocampus AT, and without the metal frame of the frame is the ultimate coaxial movement hippocampus AT.

Note the 3 o’clock calendar window, the 8500 movement (non-Zheng coaxial) version features a calendar window with a metal frame.
   The biggest difference between the 8500 Hippocampus AT and the True Coaxial Hippocampus AT is that the 8500 Hippocampus AT does not have a 15,000 Gaussian antimagnetic capability. In this regard, I don’t think it is a big problem. We know that the 8500 movement also uses silicon hairsprings. The biggest feature of silicon hairsprings is anti-magnetic. Even if the antimagnetic ability of the 8500 cannot reach 15,000 Gauss, there is always no problem in coping with daily life. I am very clear that the actual antimagnetic ability of the Omega Co-Axial movement can reach 70,000 Gauss, and it has undergone nuclear magnetic resonance experiments and neodymium magnet experiments. But in our daily life, no one will put the watch into the MRI machine all day long, and no one will hold the neodymium magnet every day. At present, I feel that the price of the 8500 hippocampus AT has bottomed out (the price of the belt model will be more ‘attractive’). For many players, I think it is a good choice.
The next step is the Aqua Terra, the coaxial coaxial seahorse currently sold by Omega.

At present, the Omega Co-Originated Seamaster Aqua Terra, 15,000 Gauss antimagnetic.
   As I mentioned at the beginning of the article, I think the Aquamarine Sea Terra Aqua Terra, which is currently on sale, is a very good watch. While improving the appearance slightly, it has increased the anti-magnetic ability of 15000 Gauss. What impressed me that year was that someone said, ‘Hippocampus took off his glasses’ (referring to removing the frame of the calendar window). For the current Omega 15,000 Gauss antimagnetic, I have a two-pronged attitude. Omega’s 15,000 Gaussian coaxial anti-magnetic movement is the highest level of anti-magnetic in the watch industry. This first deserves its name because it has undergone various experiments. The more than 40,000 yuan Coaxial Omega Seahorse AT has a magnetic resistance of 15,000 Gauss. We look at other luxury brands’ watches. At this price, we still use general movements such as ETA and Celita. . Omega has even eliminated some of the traditional advantages of Rolex with its ‘unbeatable’ technological advantage. Because 15000 Gauss can bring us a strong persuasion and confidence.

The actual effect of the ‘Water Ripple’ disc surface is very luxurious, which enhances the sense of luxury of the watch.
   On the other hand, I also don’t want people to fall into ‘tech worship’. Because watches are not something that plays a decisive role in technology. From an extreme point of view, the 15,000 Gaussian coaxial magnetic movement is the highest in the world, stronger than Rolex and Patek Philippe. But this does not prevent us from buying other watches. The advantage of Zhizheng coaxial hippocampus AT is that it achieves the perfect balance of brand, recognition, luxury, technical characteristics and price. Apart from personal aesthetic preferences, I can’t even find the short board of this watch. If you can accept the Omega brand, can accept the appearance of the hippocampus AT, Zhizheng coaxial hippocampus AT is definitely the best choice in the same price watch.
Although it has not yet appeared in the store, the 2017 version of the seahorse Aqua Terra is coming.

   Omega presented the 2017 new version of the Sea Horse Aqua Terra at the Basel Show this year. Although there is no news in the country at present, it should come sooner or later, so I will show you the new 2017 version of the Sea Horse in advance, compared to the previous Version, the 2017 version of the hippocampus does change a lot.

Omega 2017 Sea Horse Aqua Terra.
   The 2017 version of the hippocampus AT is slightly resized. The new case size is 41mm. The previous hippocampus AT is 41.5mm, which is slightly smaller. The 2017 version of the hippocampus has modified the case shape. We can see that the case of the 2017 version of the hippocampus tends to be a ‘small abalone’ case. The case is thicker than the previous hippocampus. Of course, this shell shape was also used immediately in the Omega antique sea. One small detail you may overlook. The crown of the 2017 version of the hippocampus has also been slightly modified, and the new crown has become tapered. The 2017 edition of the hippocampus has changed significantly. First, the calendar window changed from the usual 3 o’clock position of the hippocampus to the 6 o’clock position. Open the window at 6 o’clock, and the panel will look much more balanced. Furthermore, the “Yacht Deck” stripes used by Omega for a long time were decorated with vertical stripes before, and the 2017 version of the seahorse AT was changed to horizontal stripes. Another detail change of the plate is that Omega changed the wording above the 6 o’clock position on the plate from 3 lines to 2 lines, eliminating the previous ‘150m / 500ft’ waterproof wording on the hippocampus AT. The 2017 version of the hippocampus has only two lines: MASTER CO-AXIAL and CHRONOMETER.

Note that the ‘small abalone’ shell shape and calendar window of the 2017 version of the hippocampus AT change, while the ‘yacht deck’ stripes on the watch face are horizontal.
   In terms of movement, the 2017 version of the hippocampus AT has not changed, and it is still the same as the previous coaxial movement. It can also be seen from this point that the evolution of Omega from the 8500 to the Zhizheng coaxial movement has been completed. The Co-Axial movement currently in use has been perfected and no improvement is needed.

The 2017 version of the Omega Seamaster AT also uses the Co-Axial movement, with 15,000 Gauss antimagnetic capabilities.
In the face of three generations of hippocampal ATs, the only consideration is ‘money’.
   The three generations of the hippocampus AT I think are all very good watches. The only thing you need to consider is ‘money’. More money can buy the new version of Zhizheng coaxial, less money can buy the 8500 version. The difference between the disk surface and the shell shape depends on your preferences. There is no essential difference between the 8500 and Zhizheng coaxial on the movement. I can’t use Rolex’s 1000 Gauss, let alone 15,000 Gauss. Omega Seahorse AT has developed to the point where it is today. It has been perfected in all aspects. There are no shortcomings. Omega’s own brand influence is also sufficient, so it depends on your wallet.
