Each cluster is located in the center of a striking and charming single gemstone, with a classic and elegant structure, surrounded by eye-catching large gemstones, giving the timeless design an unexpected avant-garde modern atmosphere. Linglong jewelry uses innovative mosaic technology to stage a dazzling light-colored charm. This inlaying technology was carefully developed by Chopard’s craftsmen, inspired by Caroline Schafer’s long-standing jewellery dream, which highlights the vitality and brilliance of gemstones and shows the individual charm of jewelry.

Chopard Magical Setting Jewelry

The central gem of each cluster is fixed with almost invisible and invisible claws, and the surrounding gems are firmly positioned like magic. There is no support at all, and no metal base can be seen from the front or above the jewelry. Brocade is supported by Chopard’s new and original structure. This special technique moves the claws typically used to hold gemstones below the gemstone waistline. As a result, the metal will be completely hidden on the surface of the jewelry, and each facet of all gems can be more fully illuminated. The light can enter and exit freely, swirling around the gem, setting off ripple waves on the surface of the gem, not hindered by solid metal, and not bound to any limit. At the same time, the gold support structure enhances the dazzling light color effect, creating an unprecedented visual experience.

‘I deeply love gemstones, and hope to conceive the most unexpected way to highlight the beauty of gemstones. With the Magical Setting technology developed by Chopard’s Fine Jewelry Workshop with extraordinary ingenuity and craftsmanship, we can now make gemstones suspended in the air, At the same time, it shines brightly, ‘said Caroline Schaefer, co-president and artistic director of Chopard.

The wonderful combination of light and color is beautiful and shocking.

Noble classical brocade design

Chopard Magical Setting Jewelry

Chopard is known for its unrestrained, unconventional high-end jewelry style, and Caroline Schaefer reinterprets extremely classic jewelry designs through the Magical Setting series. The brocade design dates back to the 14th century and may have its origins in the medieval brooches used to fasten cloaks or robes in the Middle Ages, which gradually evolved into ornate and delicate ring-shaped accessories. Today’s brocade presents elegant floral shapes, which were all the rage in the 17th and 18th centuries as the earliest decorations. Diamonds were discovered in Brazil in the early 1720s. For the emerging wealthy class of the time, diamonds were increasingly widely accepted and favored. In the 19th century, fashionable brocades used a single gem shape, usually accompanied by large colored stones, surrounded by diamonds, which were very graceful and luxurious, occupying a place in the jewelry box of the royal family. The brocade in this form is still the traditional pattern of high-end jewellery in the 20th century. At that time, the focus of the design was on the type of gems and classic charm.

Today, Caroline Schaefer breaks through the classic brocade design, explores its noble temperament and multiple changes, plays with proportions, and is fascinated by its connection with the universe and constellation. This dense star cluster composed of light and energy scatters light from the inside out, and it dazzles the night sky, which is stunning and fascinating.

Love Magical Setting Series

Caroline Schaefer recalls that her love for gems originated in her childhood. When she was playing with her mother’s jewelry, she felt a magical attraction. She arranged and stacked the jewelry and dreamed of creating her own work. After participating in the family business, she injected this playfulness with a bold avant-garde spirit of adventure into Chopard design. Caroline Schaefer has perseverance, adheres to the spirit of freedom, constantly breaks boundaries, challenges stereotypes, and frees high-level jewelry from the formal and formal customs. She gave jewellery a new form of expression, creating a unique style that is at the forefront of fashion, leisurely grace, exquisite and gorgeous. Today Chopard is known worldwide for this style. However, Caroline Schaefer’s ultimate goal is to highlight the beauty of gems, the color and luster of colored gems, and the endless depth of diamonds.

Chopard Magical Setting Jewelry

For many years, Caroline Schaefer held a dream-to make the setting invisible, to make the gemstone shine, and to show its extraordinary charm and personality. She challenged the artisans and shook her head to say that her ideas were too complex to be realized. However, she is curious and persevering, persevering, and relentlessly pursuing innovation and inspiration. Today, Magical Setting turns her creative vision into reality. Her exclusive artisans combine advanced technology and ancient skills to create a new generation of fashion classics. These sensual jewels are radiant and dazzling, making people feel refreshed.

Make diamonds spin freely

Chopard Magical Setting Jewelry

The Magical Setting series evolves from Chopard’s most famous work, Happy Diamonds. The work continues Chopard’s mission of making diamonds spin freely, and strives to find a new expression of high jewelry, which can capture and reflect the feminine temperament of fashion and the ambition and attitude of modern women. In 1976, Chopard shocked the jewelry industry with Happy Diamonds. These exquisite diamonds full of joy break the old traditions, move freely, dance lively and playful, showing a young mindset. The launch of Happy Diamonds coincided with the timing and became a symbol of social and cultural change and women’s freedom.

Caroline Schaefer continues to explore and is committed to rejuvenating high-end jewelry with a more modern look. She introduces new technologies and materials, such as space metal titanium alloy, dyes it and blends with the gemstone, highlighting the gorgeous color and grace of the gemstone. Now, the Magical Setting series is once again following the trend, showing the autonomy of modern attractive women. These jewellery will be dedicated to the free women who show their charming charm freely according to their wishes. They are broad-minded, shining like the Magical Setting.

Baobao’s New 50-year-olds This Year, What Do They Look Like

As a member of the diving watch, the strength of Blancpain Fifty Fathoms has always been visible, and the popularity is very high. It has been many years since the diving watch was born. When it comes to the origin of diving watches, Blancpain plays a big role.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms

  Blancpain and Rolex are not disputed over the diving watch, who is the earliest diving watch. According to the information read, Rolex invented a sealable crown in 1925 to make the watch waterproof. In 1926, Rolex introduced the first waterproof watch; in the 1930s, Rolex conceived a rotating bezel. Blueprint. However, Blancpain is the originator of modern diving watches. The first diving watch with a one-way counterclockwise rotation bezel came from Blancpain and was born earlier than Rolex submariners.

  The 1950s was a golden age for the development of diving watches. In 1952, the French Navy’s Nageurs de Combat elite diving unit wanted a watch capable of performing tasks in the deep sea, and gave this item to Jean-Jacques Fiechter, then President of Blancpain. From this, Blancpain’s first fifty-foot watch was born. , Also laid the direction of Blancpain fifty years later. In 1953, the Blancpain Fifty Fathom was formally put into production. Later, like Blancpain’s more popular Fifty Fathoms Caphe, classic Fifty Fathoms series 5015, and 50% Fifty Fathoms 5054 with moon phase function, it slowly supported Blancpain Fifty Fathoms series.

  This year, Blancpain has released several new watches, with innovative design and materials.

Fifty Fathom Barakuda Limited Edition Watch (Model: 5008B-1130-B52A)
  I put this watch in the first talk because I was more impressed.

  In the middle of the 20th century, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms already equipped the French Navy with professional watches to perform its tasks, and the German Navy followed suit. In the 1960s, the German Navy bought the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms through Barakuda, a company specializing in the production and sale of diving equipment. Not only that, the company also introduced a civilian watch for the German market.

On the left is a limited edition watch of the Blancpain Fifty Barakuda, and on the right is the original 1960s

  This year Blancpain’s fifty-year-old Barakuda limited edition watch was retained and redesigned from a civilian watch introduced to Germany at the time. The dial of the original 1960s watch features two-tone rectangular hour markers, white luminous hands, and a clear display window at 3 o’clock. The new Fifty Fathoms Barakuda limited edition watch retains the classic two-color rectangular hour markers. The markers are coated with the ‘old radium’ type Super-LumiNova luminous coating. Surrounded by white boxes. In the original bezel, we can see the triangle mark at 12 o’clock, but Blancpain’s bezel is now changed to a diamond shape. The texture design of the strap is very similar to the old model, but in order to meet the habit of wearing watches in modern times, the material uses rubber, and it is more suitable for wearing rubber straps in summer.

  The movement 1151 is very common. It is one of Blancpain’s main movements. It is equipped with a silicon spring and a double barrel. The power reserve is 100 hours. In addition, this watch is limited to 50 pieces and the price is about 100,000, which is about the same as the previous 50 噚 5008.

Fifty Fathoms ‘Frogman Commando’ Limited Edition Watch (Model: 5015E-1130-B52A)

  We mentioned above that in 1953, the Blancpain Fifty Fathom was officially launched, which had a certain relationship with the French frogman diving commando. In 1952, Robert ‘Bob’ Maloubier, the founder of the French frogman diving commando, and Lieutenant Claude Riffaud were looking for a waterproof Performance watches, but after testing a batch of French ‘waterproof’ watches, they found some problems. These watches are too small in size, inconvenient to watch, and not waterproof. At this time, Blancpain president Jean-Jacques Fiechter was testing his diving watch. After passing the bridge, the French frogman diving commando listed its requirements to Blancpain, which played an important role in the birth of the Fifty Fathoms.

  Blancpain’s new 50-year-old watch is just to commemorate the cooperation with the French frogman diving commando. What’s more special is that the qualification badge of the commando is engraved on the back of this watch: the anchor in the middle refers to the sea, and on both sides are two hippocampus with wings, referring to paratroopers. There is a number ‘7’ at 6 o’clock on the front dial. Oxygen is converted at a gas partial pressure of 1.7 bar (gas partial pressure refers to the pressure formed by a component of a gas mixture when it occupies the same volume of the gas mixture at the same temperature.) It is a toxic gas, so the maximum diving depth when diving with pure oxygen is 7 meters, and the number ‘7’ is very symbolic.

  It is also worth noting that the 12 o’clock hour marker on the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms dial is a diamond-shaped logo, but this new product is a traditional triangular logo.

Fifty Fathoms watch: red gold case and ceramic dial
  Blancpain is very good at using ceramic materials. From 2014, Bathyscaphe used the all-ceramic case for the first time. From the ceramic crown and ceramic buttons to the ceramic rotating bezel, ceramic case and ceramic caseback, Blancpain has gradually Many innovations and breakthroughs have been made on ceramics. The hardness of ceramic material is higher than that of stainless steel. Although the process is complicated, the texture and performance are good.

  This year, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms has a special new watch. The ceramic material is used on the dial and the satin-finished red gold case has a very high value. Blancpain has accumulated a lot of experience when making ceramic materials before. The use of blue ceramics can be said to be pure fire.

  The blue ceramic dial of this watch is decorated with exquisite solar radiation patterns, which will have a gradual effect in different light colors, and the visual effect is better.

  The movement uses Blancpain’s other main movement, the 1315 movement. The upper rotor is made of red gold. The oscillating weight of Blancpain watches are generally made of precious metals or other precious materials. They are polished and exquisite in style. The oscillating weight of this watch is based on the historical style of the Fifty Fathoms series, and the other oscillating weights are symmetrically hollow, propeller-shaped, and oxygen mask-shaped.

Moon Phase Watch The Most Romantic Top Watch

As soon as the moon phase function appeared on the dial, it immediately brought wonderful vitality to the entire watch. Inside this usually semi-circular window, there is often a small round face to hide and seek with you, and this represents the shape shown by the round face of the moon, which happens to be the profit and loss state of the moon. The moon phase function is more conceptual than functional on clocks because its parts and calculations are not complicated.
 In general, the moon phase shows the state of the moon on the moon phase card according to a period of 29.5 days (that is, a month of convergence). This moon card has two moons (patterns) with 59 teeth on the edges. The error caused by this mechanism is so negligible as to the moon phase display function. The precise rotation period of the moon is 28 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 2.9 seconds. The moon phase is usually displayed by digging out a window of a specific shape on the dial and using the moon face on the moon card to display it. This particular shape includes a semicircular arc and two small arcs. This well-designed shape combined with the moon on the moon card can tell us more accurately the shape of the moon at the beginning or end of a cycle. There is usually a moon phase adjustment button on the case. The moon phase display is relatively independent of timing and perpetual calendar functions.
 Blancpain, which is relatively prominent in the moon phase, its 6395 caliber was launched in 1983, marking the revival of the art of mechanical watchmaking. This watch has several major functions highly praised by watch lovers. On the hour scale circle, there are 31 days of long moon display. Below 12 o’clock is the display of the month and day. Above the 6 o’clock is the famous ‘squint-eyed man in the moon’ crowded by Venus. Above the crescent is the time of this moon phase cycle (29.5 days in total). This watch maintains a record, and its moon phase disk is the smallest in the year calendar. A few years later, 6395 was replaced by Blancpain’s own automatic movement 1150.
 Because the monthly phase of the month is closely related to the annual calendar, the full calendar + moon phase technology is always the most harmonious combination of functions. Patek Philippe’s 5396 series is an example of the perfect combination of the annual calendar and the moon phase display function. At the same time, 5396 was promoted to the Patek Philippe brand’s complication series.
TIPS: distinguish between moon phase and day and night display
 The moon phase function, due to its prescribed shape, forms a pattern consisting of a larger semicircle and three smaller semicircles, which are very harmonious and beautiful on the dial. For those brands that do not have the function of equipping the moon phase, and are eager to take advantage of this harmonious beauty, they have come up with a workaround-use a similar moon
The phase window shows day and night. This function is as simple as connecting a synchronous gear beside the hour wheel to drive the day and night dial. However, the moon phase display and the day and night display, these two similar appearance features, the price is very different, consumers should pay attention.

Fortune Philippe Nautilus Ref. 5711/1p Fortieth Anniversary Limited Watch

The Nautilus Ref. 5711 / 1P 40th Anniversary model is limited to 700 pieces. This timepiece masterpiece has a platinum case and inherits the casual elegance tradition pioneered by the stainless steel model introduced in 1976. Its appearance resembles the original Nautilus Ref. 3700 / 1A, and reflects the steady evolution of the series over the past 40 years. The 44 mm case width (including the crown) makes the new Ref. 5711 an absolute oversized watch. Even the Ref. 3700 / 1A, which was 40 years ago, was two millimeters smaller than the Ref. 5711 and won the nickname of ‘Jumbo’ at the time. This may be because people thought that this sports watch was like a Boeing 747 Jumbo airliner in the civil aviation industry at the time. The Air King, born in 1969 with the human desire to travel by air, has been the world’s largest passenger jet for almost four decades. In addition, although the 2 mm difference looks very subtle, it can create a completely different effect on the wrist. Patek Philippe’s timepiece R & D department realizes that in the past forty years, people’s perception of watch size has changed significantly. The new size is perfect for the Nautilus Ref. 5711 / 1P commemorative watch.

Pure platinum for your temperament

   The case of this 40th anniversary watch is made of solid PT950 platinum. Platinum has a cool, unique silvery luster, not only the rarest precious metal, but also an unusually difficult process. The extraordinary hardness and excellent ductility of platinum, compared with gold or stainless steel, will aggravate the wear of drills, milling heads, files and polishing tools, so extra effort and effort are required to create a three-piece platinum case and bracelet For various forms of finishing, including chamfering, satin sanding, sandblasting, and mirror polishing. The final finished case is a well-defined work that reflects the brilliance of different metals, so that other timepieces can only look at it. Like all Patek Philippe watches in platinum, the new Nautilus Ref. 5711 / 1P watch is set with a flawless top Wesselton diamond (about 0.02 carats) at 6 o’clock on the bezel (between the lugs).

   The dial of Ref. 5711 / 1P is also specially designed for this anniversary. The material is made of 18K gold. The color is different from the original Nautilus. It is dominated by dark blue and presents a deep gradient effect from the inside to the outside. The 18K white gold rod-shaped hour dial features a flawless baguette top Wesselton diamond (0.34 carats total). The dark blue dial still features the iconic horizontal cross-relief pattern of the Nautilus series, and the lower half of the dial also has two lines of low-key anniversary text ’40’ and ‘1976-2016’. The date display window at 3 o’clock is also slightly enlarged in proportion, with a polished 18K white gold frame. Against the backdrop of these background elements, the platinum hour bar and hour hands with fluorescent coating and the second hand with a counterweight show the time accurately. The new Ref. 5711 / 1P’s daily travel time error does not exceed -3 to +2 seconds, far exceeding the official accuracy standard of the observatory.

Legendary movement

   Highly accurate timekeeping thanks to the Caliber 324 S C movement independently developed by Patek Philippe, which has an extremely important position in the eyes of watchmaking enthusiasts and collectors. Unlike other self-winding movements, this movement combines tradition and innovation, combined with precision, reliability and extraordinary craftsmanship. The massive center dial is made of 21K gold, which can provide the required power for the watch, bringing a reliable and fast automatic winding effect. Gyromax® balance wheel and Spiromax® hairspring, as the two major inventions of Patek Philippe, ensure excellent movement accuracy of the movement. The finishing of all movement elements is done manually, including the Geneva stripe decoration of the plywood, the chamfering and polishing of the edges, the polishing of the notches, the circular grain pattern of the gold automatic disk, and the rotation of the main board Circle pattern, and gold-inlaid engraving. These exquisite details, through the sapphire crystal case, show the Geneva watchmaking tradition inherited by Patek Philippe. This is the perfect expression of the casual elegance of the Nautilus series!
