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.

For the past 25 years, TourAutoOptic2000 has witnessed the journey of antique cars across the approximately 2,000 kilometers between Paris and Cannes. From April 18th to 24th, 240 players will test their courage on the closed track. Only antique cars that participated in historical events from 1951 to 1973 are eligible to participate, and the car body and engine cannot be modified in any way. These unique cars have maintained outstanding performance and unchanging style, found their way of existence for decades, and became the inspiration for Zenith’s new ElPrimeroChronomaster1969TourAuto watch.
Like a car with a lifted lid and a cutting-edge mechanical display, the new ElPrimeroChronomaster1969TourAuto watch features Zenith’s famous dial design and a window at 11 o’clock, revealing the charming operation of the ElPrimero 4061 automatic chronograph movement.

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.

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.
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!

Each Ref. 5711 / 1P is uniquely numbered and comes in an anniversary box, which contains a certificate of origin and an anniversary document. The watch box is made of brown natural cork, which truly reproduces the unique style of the watch box that was used in the original 1976 Nautilus watch.

The fortieth anniversary cork box features a polished stainless steel base frame and a hinged lid. The metal nameplate on the front also reproduces the original 1976 box design, with the italic ‘Nautilus’ lettering and the ‘PATEK PHILIPPE GENEVA’ logo....

Breguet is a watch brand with noble bloodlines and a legendary watch brand. Its glorious history is enough to ensure its status in the watch industry. It is its most important series. Today, Watch House brings you a brief review of a Breguet classic series watch, with a hand-engraved new grid ‘ArtDéco’. The official model of the watch is: 5967BA / 11 / 9W6.
Why ARTDECO? The World Art Deco and Industrial Fair in France in 1925 revealed the shaping of the Art Deco style (ARTDECO) and swept the world ever since. The reason why this artistic style was popular at the time was that its eclecticism made it possible for mass production. It is not like the Bauhaus art of the same period, which emphasized functionality and completely abandoned decoration, but advocated the organic combination of decoration and function. The production of this artistic style is not only the product of human culture, but also the carrying of human spirit and thought.
In recent years, the Art Deco style has been resurrected globally, showing a rising momentum. Different from the demand for mass production in that era, ARTDECO now uses its compatible and tolerant vision and flexible and free creative methods to make the design a great space. As long as it is an element that can be used as a decoration, no matter what style it belongs to, it can be used in ARTDECO’s works. In the context of blending multiple cultures and multiple artistic ideas, our love for ARTDECO stems from our pursuit of aesthetic values, which actually reflects our praise for beauty and active love for modern life from another angle. .
The tide is always reincarnation every few decades. The growth of all artistic styles is constantly being full in the process of being used continuously, after the reflection of generations of designers. When Art Deco style became popular all over the world again, watch designers also drew a new chapter of ARTDECO on the drawings, and appeared in front of people with a new attitude integrating modern aesthetics. When designers’ attention rises to people’s mental feelings, ARTDECO becomes an excellent language.
This watch is made of 18K yellow gold, 41mm diameter design, silver plated 18K gold dial, hand-engraved new grid ‘ArtDéco’ decoration, classic Breguet blue steel hands, with Roman scale dial, read Clear and convenient.
The watch has many characteristics of the Breguet brand, the coin decoration on the side, and the design of the straight lugs, which explain the noble Breguet descent flowing through the watch. The thickness of this watch is 6.95 mm, which is still comfortable .
The infinite charm of ARTDECO watches lies in the best use of decorative arts. And this style has strong characteristics. The creative freedom brought by Art Deco design makes the starting point of this style of watch more than any other popular product design style. ARTDECO watches were mainly represented by more mechanical, geometric, purely decorative lines in the early days. Nowadays, they are more like a diversified way of thinking, compatible with luxury, elegance, and modernity, combining complex but very rhythmic visual impact. This self-contained, independent modeling language with its own connotation has a strong characteristic of being more appreciative. In the design of the shape, more attention is paid to the texture and gloss of the materials, and geometric shapes or pattern decoration are used for decoration. The use of strong solid colors and metallic colors is emphasized to create gorgeous visual impressions. The strong decorativeness based on the form of lines embodied by ARTDECO, in principle, makes flexible use of aesthetic principles such as repetition, symmetry, and gradation to make geometric shapes full of poetry and decoration. This method of creation is the process of giving meaning to the body and the process of injecting your own ideas into the design.
The watch is designed with a sapphire crystal glass bottom. The cal. 506.2 manual winding movement is equipped inside. The manual movement can provide a power reserve of 40 hours.
Summary: The new grid ‘ArtDéco’ decorative design of the dial adds a lot of color to the watch. At present, the price of this watch in domestic Henry is 139,100 yuan, and it also has a platinum version to choose from. Go to the store for more details

Following the 2017 Octo Finissimo automatic wristwatch and bracelet skeletonized tourbillon that won the Best Men’s Watch and Best Tourbillon award at the Geneva Watch Awards, the series has not stopped moving forward in 2018. With the advent of the flywheel automatic watch, the Octo Finissimo carbon thin-layer minute watch with technology material has appeared. The appearance of this paragraph is completely new. What’s more special is that Bulgari developed a special material called Carbon Thin Ply (CTP) for this purpose, which is applied to the case, face plate and bottom cover of the Octo Finissimo minute repeater. Only the crown is made of DLC titanium.
Extreme use of movement space
The centrifugal governor of the chronograph system in the BVL 362 movement is only equipped with two balance weights. The chronograph start device is not a traditional lever type, but a push-button device to start.
The CTP material is not only lighter, but also has excellent acoustic characteristics. In conjunction with the internal and external structural design of the watch, which is good for sound transmission, it has the loudest timekeeping effect of the watch, and an ultra-slim appearance with a thickness of 6.85mm. . The weight of the entire watch is only 47g, light and unimaginable, which also breaks the world’s traditional impression of asking for a watch.

Oris has launched a new member of the new flight series: Swiss Hunter Team Limited Watch. It is a watch specially created to commemorate Hunter, a classic legendary jet fighter; it also symbolizes a new milestone for Oris to open a shop-in-shop. The imposing Hunter jet fighter launched its first voyage in Britain in 1951, and its flying edge swept the world. Seven years later it was stationed in Switzerland and became the shining star of the Swiss Air Force. Although Hunter has been a retired fighter in Switzerland, fortunately, because of the unique team of former Air Force pilots who started the life flight movement for Hunter due to the Swiss Hunter Team, we can still see Hunter bravely flying at high altitude Heroic sight.
The design of the Oris Swiss Hunter Team limited watch reflects the design elements of the jet. The 46mm oversized case, complemented by a gray-plated PVD coating, outlines the resolute outline in simple lines. The delicate upper circle and oversized screw-in safety crown are the distinctive features of the ORIS flight watch. The top of the second hand uses a special jet design to design a lightweight makeup point.
