Relationship Between Movement And Clocks

‘Movement’! Everyone knows, no one knows, a terminology that watchmakers never leave. This term is so well known and well known in Switzerland that anyone knows the important meaning of this keyword. Later, this technical term was used naturally by people as a special pronoun, referring specifically to ‘an important social problem.’ In the watch manufacturing area throughout Switzerland, the “movement” ranks first in the world, and the “Swiss Movement Manufactures Association” as one of the four pillars of the watch industry, together with its counterparts, supports the entire Swiss watch industry. produce. So how do literati and scholars define this world-famous term? In other words, how is the original meaning of the word defined? Investigating the source, the original meaning of the word is closely related to the word ‘design’, specifically referring to a ‘simple part’ in the finished watch. If people today know that there is a ‘world of movements’ and a world of watches and clocks, which both exist independently and are interdependent, then we have to retrace the traces of history in order to find why the two ‘worlds’ are halfway between them. Why is the real reason for a complete separation? Because this is indeed an important issue.
   The real reason for the complete breakup is by no means a rift between the two. The reason for the breakup is from the day-to-day and sporadic disagreements, and the real reason is often unknown in the long river of history, some unpredictable dark waves. In order to better understand the overall and true answer, we have to revisit history, and even go back to the early days of the birth of watches and clocks, which is the beauty of each work, each new invention from the ‘artisan of watchmaking’ or the hand of the artist Years. In that era, everyone knew exactly what a watch or a clock was, but no one ever mentioned the term ‘movement’. What is important is a fully completed clock or watch. The watchmaker does not think that it is necessary to distinguish between the ‘movement’ and other parts of the watch. This is completely different from the modern mechanized assembly line production method. . A finished finished clock is a clock in the true sense, as simple as air is air. Over time, people began to realize and realize that they must be distinguished from each other. At this time, the broad term of clocks and watches and the noun ‘movement’ began to separate. This is a gradual understanding and a gradual practice process. We cannot strictly indicate the exact year.

   Like typewriters and steam locomotives, Swiss timepieces, especially early handmade products, have retained the original style inherited by the glorious founders. Looking at the original antiques, we can recall the long history of this industry. One of them appeared in the Jura region on a date that no one can determine, and spent its childhood here. Time, and thrive in the years to come. The official chronicles of the earliest generation of the watch industry in Switzerland are rarely noticed, and accurate information and unambiguous descriptions are extremely scarce. In the process of research, we are often ‘confused’, can’t tell whether it is true history? Or unverifiable folklore? The obscure birth date of the Swiss watch industry lacks conclusive evidence. Far from complete historical data, different regions give different sketchy answers. Taking Geneva as an example, the introduction of this industry or, more precisely, this art should be dated to the end of the sixteenth century. One of the evidence is that the city’s Thomas-Bayer was officially registered as a ‘clock and watch’ in 1554. Craftsman ‘, another name is Martin Dubre, one of the earliest well-known watchmakers. As for the Nasserdale region, Danielle-Jean Richard is the undisputed founder of the industry.

    These famous ancestors are worthy of the glorious title given by history. But the heroic role they play is not isolated. Their great deeds are like their father and brother, their contemporaries, their descendants, and many others we have not yet known, and have made concrete contributions to this cause. The joint efforts of many colleagues, while benefiting from the unique and favorable manufacturing environment, this kind of art can finally establish a foothold in this mountainous region with harsh climate. Everyone knows that this art-filled industry eventually becomes an integral part of the industrial manufacturing industry, because this kind of manufacturing industry may be more suitable for the collective labor model than the individual individual operation. In fact, everyone knows that a scientific invention with a clear right of attribution is usually the accidental discovery of a genius individual. A clearer expression should be that someone is in a certain field and the first to discover or publish a brand new result. Or new products like never before.
   People will find that at the historic moment when the professional term ‘movement’ is formally used, the parts that make up the ‘movement’ will no longer look the same as before, and will begin to change along with the development of the entire Swiss watch industry. The evolution of these parts will make the professional term ‘movement’ famous.

Earl Counts Gong Li’s Bright Huashang Series Shining Debut

Since its founding in 1874, Piaget has consistently maintained the top position in the jewelry watch industry with perfect and excellent quality, and expects its global spokespersons to have a similar temperament, so it has always been very careful about candidates. After a long period of incubation, Gong Li, an internationally renowned movie star, was finally selected as the global spokesperson for his brand.
 At the same time, at 2:30 pm on June 21, 2013, Beijing time, Piaget brand and Gong Li held the launch event of Couture precieuse brilliant Huashang high jewelry series. Please adjust your breath below, and I will unveil the veil of this top jewelry event for you.

 The press conference is located in Beijing Fashion Design Plaza. The decoration style outside the venue seems to be somewhat inconsistent with the surrounding surrealist artistic atmosphere. However, I realized how interesting it is for the brand to create such a contrasting visual impact.

 There were a lot of jewellery enthusiasts and media people at the event. Although the number was large, the atmosphere was really elegant. We can’t hear the loud noise, just hear many whispering but excited praises : WOW or Amaizing!

 The gap in the middle of each platform is very large, so that the masses of media and jewelry people can enjoy a sense of happiness with them for a few seconds.

 The sofas around the exhibition hall are in European style. The pure white leather looks very shiny, and it matches the black main color of the scene in a coordinated manner.

 Couture precieuse dazzling Huashang high jewelry collection is inspired by the exquisite details of couture clothes representing the ultimate masters’ charity, and is hand-made with superb top-level craftsmanship. This series uses black, red and white as the main colors of women’s unique aesthetics, with three major themes of ‘shine lace’ and ‘diamond weaving flower’ and ‘beautiful totem’ shine.

 Like the count or dislike the count, I think it is difficult for anyone to resist its luxurious beauty. The square dial is designed as a diamond, and the white dial looks very simple and bright.

This image-shaped necklace really looks like someone put a flower on your slender neck, oh no! It is more shining flowers blooming in your neck. The necklace fits well with the theme of ‘Diamond Weaving’.

 Earrings are definitely a master of fashion. So how to choose the right earrings? In fact, the method is very simple. The style hanging down on the picture is more suitable for girls who need to lengthen their facial lines. In contrast, round earrings are more suitable for people who need to become full.

 This is the ‘beautiful totem’ theme necklace from the bright Huashang series. Pearl necklaces are widely used by many brands, but Piaget’s creative idea is to put bright and precious stones on the necklace for decoration. While cleverly conceived, there is no lack of elegant texture.

 Friends who are familiar with our watch home will certainly be familiar with this watch. That’s right, this watch is the most recent exhibit in the Geneva Watch Fair. The dark blue dial is mysterious and profound. This watch is derived from the theme of ‘Diamond Weaving Flowers’. No effort was spared on the material to create such a watch.

 The rings from the same series are very characteristic. The white gold that has been polished into a five-pointed star shape is inlaid with sapphire, and the manufacturing process is amazing to viewers.

 This is a watch from the theme of ‘shine lace’. The strap is very characteristic. It seems to be worn on the hand as if it brings several bracelets at the same time to emphasize the sense of layering. I don’t know if this designer is a master who creates illusions. Watch style.

The heart part of the pink gem is striking.

 Sorry, I didn’t see the designer in this jewellery exhibition. Otherwise, I really want to ask where the creative inspiration and themes of this watch come from. Friends, do you know?

 See? This is a necklace that imitates a ribbon. How can you cleverly shape the flexibility of the ribbon onto precious metals? The Earl did not solve this puzzle, but showed it directly to us and surprised us.

 The press conference hall was very spacious and lit the elegant and mysterious atmosphere with small chandeliers and candles. The dining table is well-organized and looks a bit extravagant.

 The earl carefully prepared desserts for the guests, delicious and delicate.
 After the host came on stage, the atmosphere calmed down. He not only introduced the cultural history and connotation of Piaget brand, but also invited Mr. Mai Zhenjie, CEO of the brand international, to take the stage to speak.

 As soon as the CEO came up, he saluted the guests in Chinese ‘Hello’. He said that during his time living in Beijing, he felt that he had become a Chinese. He liked Beijing and hoped that the Earl would have a better development in China in the future. The release of the new collection made him very happy, and I hope to share more Piaget jewelry with a history of 150 years.

 After Mr. Mai Zhenjie’s speech was over, in a piece of melodious music, the jewellery models and models traveled throughout the venue so that everyone could better appreciate the beauty of Piaget’s jewelry. Different from the way displayed in the exhibition hall, the models wear high-end jewelry catwalks according to their temperament characteristics, making Piaget jewelry more vivid and charming.

 This ‘diamond weaving flower’ comes from the same inspirational theme as the advertising model worn by Gong Li. With the sweetness and elegance of the fan, the designer outlined a design drawing with diamonds, and implemented it into a magnificent masterpiece now displayed in your eyes.

 Piaget has never spared no effort in making the world’s finest jewelry and watches for the world. Aesthetically, they are more willing to combine with the artistic level to make compatible, practical and exquisite watches. The press conference specially invited dancers to present a dance to better convey the artistic concept contained in Piaget jewelry.

Salute at the end of the model show.

 After the last session, our big man Gong Li appeared. The dark blue mermaid evening dress was wrapped in Gong Li’s exquisite curves. It is not easy to concentrate mature, grandeur, luxury, and elegance on one person, but Gong Li does a good job.

 Gong Li and the host communicated with each other in an air-tight manner, which made the atmosphere of the venue very relaxed and harmonious. Gong Li has changed from the former queen of domestic literature and art to the queen of international blockbusters. The storms and persistence along the way have always believed that it is the same as the count, and the common ground of both parties should be always self-confidence and strong aura.

 Gong Li drank champagne to celebrate the happy cooperation with Mr. Mai Zhenjie, the CEO of Earl International, Mr. Gu Teng, the president of the Asia-Pacific region, and Murong Tao, the chief executive of China. Afterwards, Mr. Mai Zhenjie said that he personally liked Gong Li very much. She is very similar to the position or temperament of Piaget. Piaget chose Gong Li to be very honored. I look forward to more surprises in the future cooperation.

 Interview after the conference.

 Summary: There are many ways to feast on your eyes, I hope that the news of the Watch House can make you gain. Whether it’s the people, culture or jewelry in the middle, as long as you have a high understanding and pursuit of elegant life, choosing the earl will surely make you transcend the elegance of the world and lift the aesthetics to a higher level.

Saxonia Automatic

Precision mechanical watches are no longer just appealing to men, women are increasingly demanding sophisticated internal worlds. Lange watches, known for their state-of-the-art craftsmanship and distinctive style, also fascinate women, just like the newly launched Saxonia Automatic diamond style. Lange designed this women’s watch to combine cutting-edge technology, exquisite craftsmanship and detached design. Like other refined and elegant Saxonia watches, the Saxonia Automatic is both classic and contemporary. Clearly laid solid silver dial with bezel set with 76 round diamonds. Both elements are elegantly combined with a white or rose gold case. The Saxonia Automatic has a precise and harmonious visual proportion. The movement is only 3.7 mm thick. It is the thinnest automatic winding movement ever created by the Saxon watchmaker. The outstanding quality of this movement can never live up to the wrist. The table has a beautiful appearance.

Classic Touring Rolex Date Lapis Lazuli Watch

When it comes to Rolex, the dial is very important. Imagine the Stella dial of the day calendar type, the Paul Newman dial of Daytona, and the submariner dial full of subtle differences. As far as the log type is concerned, it seems that no dial has won a loud reputation, but lapis lazuli is an exception.

   Hard rock dials are always interesting because they are not easy to produce. In fact, they are born from a larger gem. Apart from cutting, the first challenge is to find a rough with sufficient size and high quality. For a long time, one of the main places to look for high-quality lapis lazuli was Iran. But after the collapse of the Shah regime, this is no longer an option. Fortunately, other sources such as South America and Siberia can provide lapis lazuli of comparable quality.

   In some cases, traces of gold can be seen in lapis lazuli, but this log-type dial does not seem to be there. The presence of gold can add an extra dimension to the lapis lazuli dial, if not, it would be harmless. Rolex lapis lazuli dials are commonly found in gold date-of-day watches or gold day-of-the-week watches, and are often accompanied by diamond hour-markers. This watch has a white gold case that contrasts with the vibrant lapis lazuli dial.

   In 2016, this watch was auctioned by Félis and sold for 33,750 Swiss francs, which is higher than the median estimate (20,000 to 40,000 Swiss francs) before the auction. In 1945, in order to celebrate the brand’s 40th anniversary, Rolex designed a series of exquisite timepieces. The log watch is one of the most beautiful examples. Although the price of antique diary watches has not increased as much as other models in recent years, these unique timepieces undoubtedly provide a useful complement to discerning Rolex collectors.

Precise Display Recommended Three Big Calendar Watches

The calendar is now standard on the watch. There is nothing unusual, but the big calendar is not painful. It can instantly enhance the style of the watch. The big calendar is not a double calendar. The calendar is displayed with two wheels, which are usually seen in some high-end watches. Today, the Watch House recommends three large calendar watches for everyone.

I take inspiration from the movement of the human body, and focus on repetition and overlap, and then on the size of the font. And line rhythm. ‘
   The dial font is concise, which fully meets the primary function of the watch to clearly display the time: the geometrically designed font is light and neat. It is like a rest on a musical score, which is used to strengthen the characteristics of the melody; some digital lines are broken in the middle, which represents a paused space, which cleverly describes the rhythm of time.
   The dial is divided into three levels: the hours are on the periphery, the center circle is on the inner circle, and the small second hand at six o’clock.
Colorful
   In 2015, Hermès first introduced the Slim d’ Hermes Manufacture and Slim d’ Hermes Perpetual Calendar models equipped with the H1950 ultra-thin caliber, both of which are 39.5 mm, and women’s models with diameters of 32 and 25 mm are also available.

   Men’s models have new options such as a slate gray dial with grey crocodile straps, and a night blue model with matte indigo straps; all straps are made by Hermes leather workshops, embodying the spirit of branded harness manufacturing and leather craft .
H1950 movement
   The Slim d’Hermes Manufacture watch is equipped with the H1950 ultra-thin automatic movement, which can be easily read through the sapphire crystal case back; the movement is only 2.6 mm thick, with a precision mini-rotor winding energy storage, power reserve 42 hours with hour, minute and 6 o’clock small seconds display; movement decoration like hand-chamfered splint highlights extraordinary watchmaking craftsmanship; H1950 ultra-thin movement is engraved with Hermes exclusive H pattern like all Hermes movements.

[Video] Zenith’s New Chronograph, To Race Against Time

Since its birth in 1969, Zenith ElPrimero chronographs have shined in the vast high-frequency field. Up to the 50th anniversary of this series of watches this year, Zenith launched the ELPRIMERO 50th Anniversary at the Basel Show this year-a three-piece set, which combines technology and tradition, one of which is in our video Watches watched. The 44 mm titanium case is shaped with a large grooved crown, flat buttons and short lugs. Three small function dials are arranged on the hollow dial. The black rubber strap is covered with black crocodile leather, which fits the wrist perfectly.

Zenith Defy EL PRIMERO New Chronograph

  The biggest highlight of this watch is that it is equipped with a revolutionary mechanical movement with a vibration frequency of 360,000 times per hour (50 Hz), which is 10 times the original model, on a scale of 1 to 100. The measurement and display are accurate to 1 / 100th of a second. The hands are very fast, and it takes only 1 second to make a full circle around the dial, reflecting the superior accuracy and performance of this movement derived from modern engineering technology. It is equipped with two independent ‘gearboxes’: one for For displaying time, the other is used for chronograph. This anniversary edition is limited to 50 pieces.
