Harry Winston Tourbillon 3
Complex poetic
Being able to persevere in the pursuit of complex functions is a feat in itself, and one of the themes of this year is to present this poetry on the dial.
Harry Winston Tourbillon 3
Harriet Weston described this watch as the third exploration of the tourbillon’s limit! In the Histoire de Tourbillon epic tourbillon series, Harry Winston regards the tourbillon as a unique carrier, which is unique and creative in its expression of aesthetic meaning in terms of breadth, depth and subjectivity.
The three tourbillons operate simultaneously, each rotating at different speeds to exert their respective anti-gravity functions. Two of them are nested inside each other, and the fourth-dimensional time is rotated in the three-dimensional space. The dual-axis tourbillon is equipped with two concentric rotating frames. The outer frame rotates once every 120 seconds to drive the balance wheel, balance spring and escapement in the inner frame. It only takes 40 seconds to make a full rotation of the tourbillon. This will ensure that the tourbillon device still maintains unique accuracy when performing multi-dimensional rotation, while bringing stunning visual effects.

Omega Reveals The Development Of Coaxial Movements (October 19 Update)

From October 19th to November 30th, 2012, the famous Swiss watch brand Omega presented the ‘Exploration • Co-axial’ exhibition in Shanghai Swatch Peace Hotel Art Center. The display of components and watches reviewed the coaxial development of Omega’s remarkable achievements.
Interpretation of the coaxial interpretation of the secret of outstanding precision

   As the exhibition’s unveiling event, on October 18th, the press conference of the Omega ‘Exploration • Co-axial’ exhibition was held at the Swatch Peace Hotel Art Center in Shanghai. Stephen Urquhart, Omega Global President, Carlos Cardenas, Vice President Sales and Travel Retail, Omega Far East, Yang Yan, Vice President of Omega China, Gregory, Head of Omega Product Management • Gregory Kissling is here.

   Okehua, the global president of Omega, said: ‘As the world’s only watchmaker who names its brand with its own movement, Omega has always adhered to the pioneering spirit of the brand’s roots, and constantly pursues outstanding and innovative watchmaking technology. The exploration of coaxial technology is the perfect embodiment of this spirit. The revolutionary coaxial escapement system has solved the lubrication problem that has plagued the watchmaking industry for more than two centuries, and it is a major innovation in the field of mechanical watches. In 1999, Omega The industrial production of coaxial movements has been realized. For more than ten years, we have never stopped the research and development of coaxial technology and successfully applied the unique coaxial technology to all the watch series of the brand. Today, we are absolutely Most mechanical watches are equipped with a coaxial escapement system, which has raised the precision and reliability of OMEGA watches to a new level previously unimaginable in the mechanical watchmaking industry. ‘

   At the event, Mr. Chislin, the head of the Omega Product Management Department, explained in detail the operating principle of the mechanical watch, the transmission method of the movement power, introduced the importance of the escapement as the most critical part of the movement, and shared the Omega same Development trajectory of shaft escapement. After the press conference, Mr. Qisling also led the guests to visit the ‘Exploration of the Co-axial’ exhibition at the Swatch Peace Hotel Art Center in Shanghai.

   The exhibition is divided into four areas. Omega enthusiasts and watch connoisseurs can learn about the development trajectory of coaxial technology from the introduction of the coaxial development memorabilia, and learn about the coaxial escapement system and silicon hairspring according to the language guide. Technical details. The Omega coaxial technology 3D holographic image next to the watchmaker’s workbench more visually presents the extraordinary features of coaxial technology and silicon hairspring. Watchmakers from Switzerland also gave live demonstrations, demonstrating the intricate craftsmanship and sophisticated watchmaking technology inherent in Omega’s unique coaxial escapement.
Coaxial Legend Road
   The coaxial escapement is the first practical new escapement in more than 250 years, and it has an epoch-making significance for Omega and the world’s mechanical watchmaking industry. The biggest difference of this revolutionary escapement system is that it is not an improvement and improvement of the traditional lever escapement system, but uses a completely different double escapement wheel structure, which fundamentally changes The way of mechanical power transmission. Friction is one of the biggest enemies of mechanical watches. The most significant innovation advantage of the coaxial escapement is that it greatly reduces the friction in the movement, which brings a more permanent and excellent running time performance to the watch.

   Following the launch of the first coaxial movement in 1999, Omega continued to explore the coaxial road, optimized the structure of the coaxial escapement system, and improved the original double-layer coaxial escape wheel to a three-layer coaxial escapement. The vertical wheel and the pioneering technology have succeeded in minimizing friction in the movement, making the performance of the Omega coaxial watch even more extraordinary.
    In 2007, Omega launched its 8500/8501 self-produced movement equipped with a coaxial escapement. This is the most remarkable step on the road of Omega coaxial innovation. For the first time, Omega designed the entire movement around a coaxial escapement, and each of the more than 200 components was designed and produced by Omega for a new movement. At the same time, the manufacturing process of these two movements has also been optimized to prepare for series production. For Omega, the launch of the first self-produced coaxial movement is a return to the origin of the brand: in fact, the brand name of ‘Omega’ is derived from a sequence called ‘Omega’ produced by it in 1894. Production of movements. The birth of the Omega 8500 coaxial movement marks the return of Omega to the Swiss watchmaker who designed and produced its own core.

   Later, the 8520/8521 coaxial movement specially designed for small-sized watches, the 8601/8611 coaxial movement with the instantaneous jump calendar function, the 9300/9301 coaxial chronograph movement, with the day of the week display and the instant jump The functional 8602/8612 coaxial movements and the 8605/8615 coaxial movements with GMT function have come out one after another. Omega’s self-produced coaxial movement family continues to grow.
   The development of Omega’s coaxial line is confirming the prediction of the inventor of the coaxial escapement, British watchmaker George Daniel: ‘In the 21st century and beyond, it will make mechanical watches more people’s The watch of choice. ‘
