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.

Zenith Pays Tribute To The Rolling Stones-news Zenith

In 1969, just a few months before humans completed the moon landing initiative, Zenith launched the world’s first integrated self-winding chronograph movement, El Primero. In the same year, a team of world-renowned rock bands also took a new step on their glorious journey. To commemorate this meaningful year, ZENITH specially launched the new El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Tribute to The Rolling Stones to pay tribute to the Rolling Stones watch.

ZENITH pays tribute to the Rolling Stones with the new El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Tribute to The Rolling Stones

ZENITH innovative design, leading the way
In 1865, three thousand farmers were living a peaceful life in the small Swiss town of Le Locle in the mountains of Neuchâtel. In the winter season, they will change and engage in different watchmaking tasks to ensure income. The young Georges Favre-Jacot is an outstanding entrepreneur. Although he was only 22 years old, he had already conceived a new concept: bringing all watchmaking techniques under the same roof to create a complete watch production chain to simplify the production process. That’s how he founded the world’s first truly modern watch factory in just a few years. Georges Favre-Jacot has a forward-looking vision, revolutionizing the tradition of measuring time in a revolutionary way, and deeply infecting every employee of the brand with infinite creativity. This idea then became one of ZENITH’s traditional characteristics: the spirit of innovation. Guided by this spirit, the Zenith Watch Factory has won more than 300 patents, launched more than 600 movements, and won 2,333 timekeeping awards in the next century and a half. . It is also with this innovative spirit that the watchmaker developed the first integrated self-winding chronograph movement at 36,000 times per hour in 1969-El Primero. To this day, it is still an industry classic. This movement not only creates a series, but also brings endless power to many watch masterpieces. The sincere friendship between ZENITH and The Rolling Stones is only manifested through a legend in the history of contemporary watchmaking. In the light of the stars, the brand designed the new El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Tribute to The Rolling Stones to pay tribute to the Rolling Stones, limited to 1,000 pieces.

 El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Tribute to The Rolling Stones pays tribute to the legendary band-The Rolling Stones

When the stars gather
 One is a watchmaking star that created the El Primero movement in 1969, and the other is a well-known British rock star. The two stars met here, and each other regretted it. Who said that watchmakers and rock stars couldn’t have the same idea? Pleasant, fearless, orthodox, these three concepts launched the legend of the watch factory in 1865, and created the band’s glory in 1962. Five young musicians walked together and the legendary band was born. Talent is the foundation of the band: Brian Jones, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, and Charlie Watts quickly entered the music scene with unique genres. Times made heroes, and in the early 1960s, pop music and rock music swept England. Later, rock music was in an alternative style, forming a strong contrast with pop music, and the band was evenly divided with The Beatles. The uniqueness of the band’s work also played an important role in their success: songs such as ‘I can’t get no (satisfaction)’ released in 1965 and ‘Angie’ released in 1973 have become popular Classic tracks. The band quickly gained worldwide fame and the legend began. Even if more than 50 years have passed, the classics will never go out of style. The Rolling Stones will hold a total of 15 North American touring concerts this year, 14 of which will be performed in the United States. It will be the first to kick off in San Diego on May 24, and will be held in Quebec, Canada Terminal.
A watch full of rock style
El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Tribute to The Rolling Stones pays tribute to the classic watches of the watch factory 40 years ago: it not only adhering to the brand’s unique style elements, but also subtly adds a modern sense And rocky deep shades. The simple and masculine design of the watch is the crystallization of the essence of ZENITH watchmaking. The titanium case is coated with DLC, and the hollow lugs are inspired by another classic model of this series-the El Primero Lightweight watch. Like all models with a skeleton design, this watch is equipped with an El Primero 4061 self-winding chronograph movement that has been certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). The skeleton design at 11 o’clock will The watch’s speed-regulating device shows off. Launched in 2003, this design has become a classic of the brand. To match the unique design of the El Primero series, the watchmaker re-engineered the movement structure, moving the balance wheel and hairspring to the side of the watch. In addition, The Rolling Stones pays tribute to the Rolling Stones watch’s escapement fork and escapement balance with innovative materials such as silicon. In fact, silicon is stronger and lighter than steel, has excellent durability, does not absorb too much energy, and therefore has a smaller coefficient of friction. Silicon is also anti-magnetic, avoiding all kinds of problems related to lubrication. The shape of the pointer resembles the neck of a Fender Telecaster guitar used by band member Keith Richards, and the brand’s guitars are well known. The watch’s chronograph dial is decorated with a snail-shaped pattern. The 30-minute and 12-hour disc-shaped chronograph dials are located at 3 and 6 o’clock, respectively, reminiscent of vinyl records, creating a perfect sense of harmony for the watch. In addition, El Primero Rolling Stones pays tribute to the Rolling Stones. The watch still retains accurate chronograph functions. The bezel flange is printed with 300 scale indicators, which can accurately time in one-fifth of a second. The central seconds hand is decorated with a star-shaped counterweight. Like the chronograph hands and the small seconds at 9 o’clock, the end of the central seconds hand is also embellished with bright red to ensure clear reading.
El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Tribute to The Rolling Stones The Tribute to the Rolling Stones watch also reproduces another major feature of this series: the bezel is delicate and elegant, and cleverly surrounds the surface. The curved crystal glass is slightly protruding, allowing the light to be projected obliquely to the surface, making reading more clear and convenient. The rubber strap is covered with Barenia calfskin and the black tri-fold clasp with PVD coating. The watch is decorated with the unique colors of the band and its country: the artisan uses hot stamping to print the band’s logo (tongue shape) on the leather and the pattern of the British flag.

 El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Tribute to The Rolling Stones with El Primero 4061 self-winding movement certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (COSC)

The pendulum seal engraved the band’s famous red tongue logo and the words ‘The Rolling Stones Edition’. Through the transparent crystal glass case back, the pendulum movement posture can be seen at a glance. The watch box includes a lining box embellished with the band’s handwritten logo and the ZENITH logo, and a box covered with leather and decorated with a red tongue tag. The box is also designed in red, which echoes the main colors of this piece. El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Tribute to The Rolling Stones Tribute to the Rolling Stones Limited edition of 1,000 pieces.
El Primero calibre
On January 10, 1969, ZENITH launched the world’s first integrated self-winding chronograph movement. Although the birth of the El Primero movement originated from a simple concept, it has been in the market for seven years, and has created two major innovations worldwide. It is not only the first chronograph movement with a non-modular design concept, but also the most accurate movement in the world. It has a high vibration frequency of 36,000 times per hour, which reflects accurate timekeeping in tenths of a second. The performance of this movement echoes its name perfectly, and it quickly became a classic of contemporary fine watchmaking. In addition to these outstanding performances, it also has an extraordinary quality that can adapt to various extreme environments: whether it is fixed on the landing gear of a Boeing 707 aircraft flying from Paris to New York, or free fall from the stratosphere with Felix Baumgartner to break the speed of sound It all passed various tests perfectly.

In addition, the El Primero movement has two other outstanding technical features that are rare in contemporary times. Its design concept is based on the high-quality chronograph component-the column wheel-that was introduced in the nineteenth century: it can handle the start, stop and zeroing of the chronograph at the same time by pressing a button. The guide post wheel consists of a ratchet (gear) with a triangular saw tooth and a guide post. It is made of extremely hard steel and has a hard texture that can effectively resist the wear caused by daily operations. The second major feature of the prototype movement is its unique lubrication technology. Under the influence of the high vibration frequency of the balance wheel, the lubricating oil of the escapement is centrifuged, which will adversely affect the normal operation of the machine. To solve this problem, the movement uses unique dry lubrication technology for the first time.
It has been beating continuously in ZENITH’s El Primero series and many other series, and it has also evolved with the times. It has won numerous awards over the years by adding a variety of complex functions and mechanical mechanisms. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the brand, in order to demonstrate the brand’s unwavering conviction of excellence, all El Primero movements used with skeleton designs or tourbillon models will pass the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) certification . In addition to the rigorous standards of the ZENITH watch factory, this independent agency also carefully tests non-assembly movements through a number of testing procedures and standards. After passing the test, the oscillating weight of the movement will be engraved with ‘Certified Chronometer’.
