Breitling Using ‘truder Movement’, Is It Worth Buying? ?

Since Breitling opened stores in Beijing’s Wangfu Zhonghuan and SKP, I can see Breitling watches every time I go shopping, and I pay more and more attention to Breitling.

Breitling’s New Super Ocean Culture
 I remember in 2017, Breitling and Tudor announced a cooperation to exchange movements. Breitling provided the self-produced B01 automatic timing movement to Tudor; Tudor provided the self-produced MT5612 automatic movement to Breitling. Breitling refurbished the Tudor MT5612 movement and renamed it the B20 movement, which is used in Breitling’s new marine culture (official name, Super Marine Culture II). I have bought a Breitling B01 calibre NAVITIMER before, so this time I will inevitably ‘start’ with marine culture using Tudor movement.

Breitling’s new super marine culture includes junior hands and chronographs, and comes in a variety of sizes and colors.
This watch is better than I expected.
 After I bought this watch, after wearing it for a few days, the watch gave me more feelings than I originally expected. In other words, this watch with a public price of 35800, its configuration and performance make me feel that it is worth the money. Let me talk about it in detail.
 Breitling’s new Super Marine Culture II is available in a variety of sizes. I bought a 46mm model. The size of 46 mm is numerically very large, and these big watches of IWC, Blancpain classic size 50 噚 are a class. But after getting started, this watch gives me a feeling smaller than Dafei, and the actual feeling is similar to wearing a 45mm 50 毫米. Because of the well-designed lugs and bracelet, getting started is very handy (this will be described in detail below).

The 46mm Breitling Super Marine Culture feels similar to the 45mm 50mm.
 The first upgrade of the new Breitling Marine Culture is the bezel. The new Marine Culture uses ceramic rings instead of the previous aluminum rings. The ceramic ring is very wide, there is a luminous point at 12 o’clock on the ceramic ring, and the rest is a grainy matte scale. Polished and bright ceramic rings also form a light and dark effect with matte scales.

The new Super Ocean Culture uses ceramic rings. On the dial is Breitling’s new B logo.
 The face of the new marine culture is also very beautiful. It has a fine sunburst decoration on the blue surface. Under the light, there will be a radiation effect. The watch uses polished bar-shaped hour markers. At the end of the hour markers, there are luminous dots, of which 12, 3, 6, 9 positions are digital scales. We can notice that above the plate, the new marine culture uses Breitling’s new B logo, without wings. We also said before that, for any watches and retro models that have continued in the history of Breitling, such as the aviation timepiece NAVITIMER, marine culture will use the retro B mark (the prototype watch of Marine Culture is the Breitling diving watch in 1957). More modern watches, such as the Avengers and Super Ocean, continue to use the wing logo.
 The pointer of the new marine culture is a place to pay attention to, because this is the place to identify the new B20 movement (Tuduo MT5612) or the old ETA movement (the old model has been discontinued, but it is still in circulation in the secondary market).

Note that one of the hallmarks of the new Super Ocean Culture is that the triangular arrow is divided in half by the middle of the hour hand.
 1. The new marine culture using the B20 (Tuduo MT5612) movement, the hour hand is an arrow, there is a dividing line in the middle of the arrow, and the arrow is divided into two. Old ETA movements that have been discontinued have no dividing line in the middle of the hour hand.
 2. The new minute hand is a sword-shaped pointer, and the old one is a rod-shaped pointer. Through the hour and minute hands, you can recognize at a glance whether the new or discontinued old model.

The crown of the new super marine culture is also the new B-shaped logo.
 The new marine culture uses the B20 movement, which is the Breitling version of the Tudor MT5612 movement. The biggest change in the Breitling B20 movement and the Tudor MT5612 original is that Breitling polished and decorated this movement. Due to the influence of positioning, Tudor’s movement cannot be polished too much, otherwise it will exceed Tudor’s public price range. Therefore, the MT5612 movement of Tudor’s own use, only relatively simple sandblasting and wire drawing on the movement plywood. Breitling adorned the B20 movement with a Geneva stripe decoration and gilded the lettering on the movement. Although Breitling’s marine culture is also a solid bottom cover, the movement cannot be seen, but the polishing decoration is all available.

Breitling’s new super-marine culture uses the B20 movement, which is the Breitling version of the Tudor MT5612 movement.
 In terms of movement performance, Breitling B20 and Tudor MT5612 remain the same. 70-hour power, using a card-free fine adjustment weight balance, certified by the observatory. Judging from the actual travel time, my watch is basically 3 seconds per day. All Breitling watches are certified by the observatory, and the travel time is guaranteed.

Tudor MT5612 (above) and Breitling B20 (below), we can see that the Breitling version has more decoration.
 The strap of the new marine culture left a deep impression on me. This watch comes with a Milan bracelet. Since I have never bought a Milan chain watch in these years, my understanding of Milan chain has lagged. The Milanese chain in my impression is still the same as before. After truncating the bracelet, it cannot be extended. After buying this new marine culture, I discovered that the current Milanese chain is just like a regular steel chain, and the end of the bracelet is also small and can be removed, shortened or extended. The woven Milanese chain is very soft and very comfortable to wear. While taking into account wearing the scale, it also highlights the retro style of this watch. The buckle of the bracelet is a folding buckle, similar to the Rolex Water Ghost, with two ‘switches’ on the buckle.

Breitling’s new super marine culture Milanese chain and buckle, the buckle is the Breitling wings logo.
 In addition to the Milanese chain, the new marine culture is also equipped with tape. What is special is that the tape of this watch also imitates the appearance of the Milan chain, and the surface of the tape has a weaving pattern.

Breitling’s tape and Milanese chain.
 In terms of price, Breitling’s new marine culture has a public price of 35,800. This public price is relatively reasonable in mainstream watches, not high, and is in the same price range as Omega’s hippocampus 300 meters, IWC Mark, Portor Red 60, Cartier Key, Panerai 774, etc. (discounts, exchange rates, secondary markets and other factors) , See personal circumstances). Although it is a diving watch like the Omega Seahorse 300 meters, the retro route taken by Breitling Marine Culture forms a different style from the seahorse 300 meters. The same is that Breitling’s new marine culture also has a 5-year warranty (Breitling’s self-produced movement watches have a 5-year warranty, and the B20 movement is positioned as its own movement). The new marine culture has a high face value, and its overall configuration is more prominent in its class. In addition, Breitling has always been stable, strong and durable, it is very suitable for daily wear.

Why Did Montblanc Release The 1858 Series After The Villeret Series?

Not long ago (October 20th), Richemont Group brand Montblanc has launched a brand new series-1858 Collection, which is a brand created by Minerva in 1858. ) The second series specially created by the movement factory for high-end watchmaking tradition can be seen from the fact that Montblanc values ​​the watchmaking tradition and Minerva plays an important role for the brand.

Montblanc 1858 series (chronograph is also available in steel)

   Since 2006, when the Minerva movement factory was taken over by Montblanc, Montblanc’s road to fine watchmaking finally has a solid backing, which has also greatly enhanced Montblanc’s status as a ‘river’. However, it is slightly strange that Montblanc has previously released the Villeret series (intriguingly, the original name was Villeret 1858 and later changed it) in order to inherit the excellent watchmaking craftsmanship and tradition of the Minerva movement factory. Want to set up a new series in a similar direction?
Respect for heritage

Montblanc Le Locle Watch Factory
   Montblanc has two watch factories, one in Le Locle and the other is the Minerva movement factory located in the small town of Villeret in the Jura Valley. (Note: The movement factory has been renamed Villeret movement factory since its incorporation into Montblanc. To Minerva Movement Factory). The two work separately and cooperate with each other. The Lelock watch factory is mainly engaged in the assembly of watches and movements, the production of movements and parts, and the inspection of watches. The Villeret movement factory is mainly engaged in the development and production of advanced movements and watches. Of course Le Locle Watch Factory also develops and produces advanced and complex movements, such as Montblanc’s Nicholas Kies series watches, but the main force responsible for the development of advanced movements is still the Villeret movement factory, and this is the key to Montblanc’s rising status Where. From this point of view, Montblanc specially sets up a series that inherits the watchmaking tradition and precision technology of the Minerva movement factory, which is very necessary.

Former Minerva Movement Factory
   As we all know, the Minerva Movement Factory was established in 1858, but the name was changed to Miverva (the name of the goddess of wisdom Athena in ancient Greek mythology) was in 1929, after undergoing multiple name changes in the middle. In 1902, the watch factory began to involve the watch design and the production of most key components. In 1909, the first watch was released, so Minerva was not actually a mere movement factory. What made Minerva famous is the No.20 mechanical chronograph movement released by the watch factory in 1923. This movement has a column-wheel chronograph structure, and its performance has been greatly recognized. Since then, the watch factory has become famous. Yuan Yang became the official timepiece of the Winter Olympics in 1936. In the following historical trends, Minerva movements have been favored, including Rolex, Panerai, Patek Philippe and other well-known first-line brands, as well as some brands that no longer exist. Therefore, it is not surprising that whenever we mention Minerva, we can’t help but think of its chronograph movement.

Minerva chronograph movement used by Panerai

Continuing aesthetic standards
    Of course, there are reasons for the popularity of Minerva movements. From the perspective of the movement itself, there are two reasons: good structure and good workmanship. From the many antique watches equipped with Minerva chronograph movements appearing on the auction market, we can find many traces. The structure of Minerva’s manual chronograph movement is full of layers. The splint and pusher are rich in lines. The entire movement does not have a large large splint to block the beauty of the movement. In addition, the timing control is smooth and accurate. Even the movements developed by many brands today cannot be compared with them in terms of aesthetics or structure. This is also why watches equipped with NOS (New Old Stock) Minerva chronograph movements are so popular, and good-quality antique watches are one of the reasons. In terms of craftsmanship, the Minerva movement is exquisitely crafted. These beautiful arcs were not made by the lathe at that time. Many of them had to be modified by time-consuming and manual polishing to achieve the ideal arc. This is exactly why it is not only liked, but also respected and treasured.

Manually adjusted hairspring

Watchmaker at Villeret
   When the Minerva movement was included in the Richemont Group, every brand in the group had the opportunity to fight for the factory to be owned by it, and after a period of competition, it finally fell into the hands of Montblanc. The facts have also proved this measure Great success. Today, the Minerva movement factory still maintains the original excellent watchmaking tradition. There are only a few CNC machines in the watch factory to stamp the prototype parts. After that, the most important processes are still completed by hand. For example, the hairspring is only used by machinery. The operation is controlled to 85% of the correct size, and the remaining 15% is processed by hand. The end curve of the hairspring is manually completed by its watchmaker. Therefore, it can achieve details that cannot be achieved by mechanical processing, achieving a high balance of quality and aesthetics. . Each year, the factory produces only a few hundred watches (only 250 in 2009), each of which is a masterpiece of master craftsmanship, which also gives us the opportunity to experience the mechanical essence of Menela again.
