The First Unico Movement To Taste Hublot Big Bang Unico Brand New Watch

HUBLOT presented a number of ‘Monster-Class’ watches at this year’s Baselworld. Of course, the most eye-catching must be the MP-05 ‘LaFerrari’ that I introduced to you before. ‘, But under its aura there are still a number of amazing overtime representative models that have brought countless surprises to everyone. Today I bring you a new Big Bang UNICO watch equipped with Hublot UNICO movement for the first time. The material of this titanium ceramic introduced today, the official model: 411.NM.1170.RX.

This will be the new product series-Big Bang UNICO after Hublot Big Bang, Classic Fusion, King Power Supreme and Masterpieces. It will officially launch at Baselworld 2013.

The Hublot Big Bang UNICO was born today. This is the perfect fusion of HUBLOT’s most iconic Big Bang design with the brand’s completely independent UNICO movement.

Appearance articles:

 The Big Bang UNICO watch launched this time uses a variety of materials, of course, this is also a satisfaction of consumer selectivity, the materials from left to right are Wang Jin, titanium gold ceramics, titanium gold.

 Big Bang UNICO has a 45.5 mm diameter case, which highlights the stylish mechanical appearance. The material introduced today is titanium ceramic. Of course, Hublot has always aimed at pioneering materials. The well-known magic gold is also the representative material of the brand. The sharp edges and the classic “sandwich structure” of Hublot are retained in the case design.

 The bezel is locked by 6 H-shaped screws. The design is trendy, clever and more prominent. The top of each bolt is more vivid, and you can choose polishing or matte finish. And the famous ‘one-button’ switching function enables the wearer to quickly switch between various straps-each watch is equipped with the same new diamond-shaped natural rubber strap, which is integrated with the entire dial and complements each other.

 The hollow dial makes the precise UNICO column-wheel chronograph movement clearly visible and at a glance. The scales and Arabic numerals have been redesigned to show a larger hollow and luminous coating.

 Also worth mentioning is the new crown design, the new screw-in crown, wrapped in pressed natural rubber, and the end decorated with a classic H-shaped logo derived from the screw shape. For the first time since the birth of Big Bang in 2005, a round button was used. Each button is protected by a central button protection device, which is as lubricating and flexible as the engine piston.

 It is absolutely reasonable to use a transparent design at the bottom of the table. If such a superb movement cannot see the internal style, I believe it should be a big loss for the wearer.


 The watch provides a 60-minute timekeeping function. The small dial at three o’clock is the chronograph dial. At the same time, a date display window is provided at the small dial at three o’clock. The dial is surrounded by a polished ring, the hands are retouched, and the two-section faceted is coated with a luminous coating.

 At 9 o’clock, there is a small seconds dial. The dial is also surrounded by a polished ring. The hands have been retouched.

Movement articles:

 This column-wheel chronograph movement is completely designed, developed and manufactured by Hublot’s watch factory. It has a two-level clutch and the side of the dial is clearly visible. The completely original method and the way of thinking that breaks the traditional framework in the research and development process make the UNICO movement unique. For example, the timing device is directly driven by the barrel and there is no positioning lever in the internal structure of the chronograph. This simplification improves reliability and stability. The escapement fork and escape wheel made of silicon are fixed on a movable platform, and the lightweight nature of silicon guarantees its operating performance. In order to further increase the robustness of the movement, 330 parts are used in its extremely simplified structure. This is a joint effort of technical departments, laboratories and after-sales service departments. Since the first introduction of the UNICO movement in 2009, it has been continuously adjusted. School results. The 4 Hz (28,800 beats per hour) vibration frequency and flawless processing ensure the high quality of this chronograph. In addition, the automatic production including cutting, gem installation, lubrication and countless assembly steps ensure the stability of the movement quality and the strictly controlled quality level. Power reserve is about 72 hours.

Summary: The UNICO self-mainframe is the most iconic chronograph movement of HUBLOT, which is also an important reason for choosing this movement. It was completely designed, developed, manufactured and assembled by Hublot’s micromechanics, engineers and watchmakers. As a movement with flyback timing function, it can be reset at any time, especially in the watchmaking industry. The unique design is that the movement integrates a double button structure, a date display, and a double horizontal clutch on the dial side. The unique positioning mechanism and the famous ‘Guide Wheel’ make it a super reliable wrist companion from a professional perspective.

Gp Girard-perregaux 1966 New Member Of The Series — 1966 Ww.Tc World Time Watch

Many major adventures in history have contributed to the birth of many legendary watches. The world time function is one of them.

In the 19th century, the brand stunned the altar with the great design of the Sanjinqiao Tourbillon, and Constant Girard-Perregaux won the award at the 1889 Universal Exposition. In the mid-twentieth century, the brand’s R & D department-the few remaining units today-introduced the first high-frequency movement ‘Gyromatic hF’ that vibrates 36,000 times per hour. During this time, Girard-Perregaux won the Neuchatel Observatory Centennial Award in 1966 for its timekeeping function. In the 21st century, the brand has adopted the ‘constant power escapement system’ developed by the silicone buckle, which has achieved an initiative of the brand and the international watch industry.

With a noble tradition of short-term computing and the essence of fine watchmaking, GP Girard-Perregaux is one of the very few brands in the world to combine timekeeping with world time functions. This initiative led to the birth of ‘WW.TC’, whose name means ‘World Wide Time Control’. The crown on both sides of the case has become one of the most representative models of the brand.

The world time function was originally designed for tourists, but now it is valued by those who follow the global pulse. This watch reads the time in 24 cities around the world in real time-extremely useful for global communication and connection. The new ‘1966 WW.TC’ watch is the first of its kind in the 1966 series. In addition to superb watchmaking technology, it is very easy to read and handle. On the periphery of the minute circle is a rotatable 24-hour counter with a semi-circular black / white ring to distinguish day and night. Use the crown at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock to adjust the settings of the watch: the former can set the reference city at noon time; the latter can adjust the time and minute display; the 24-hour time dial will be automatically synchronized.

 Listening to the song actually listens to the mood. When it was overcast, everyone fell into sorrow, and at midnight, they collectively entered the memories. Situations are wonderful things, and when you bring them into the corresponding environment, you can make people’s emotions change. Because the body can sweat in the summer, it is not a season when the petty bourgeoisie overflows. Recommend a song in my own name: ’empire state of mind’, this song I listened to in 887 in the winter of 2009, it was snowing at that time, so now it sounds like it is snowing outside anytime. This song is very explosive, but it has very good control over the rhythmic pitch and bursting vocal aria. Put yourself in the song, and you may feel that everything under the sun is within your control.

 Sometimes the time gets faster or slower is related to the mood. This song with a length of 4 minutes and 37 seconds may bury the seeds of happiness in your heart. So as the second hand advances, the seeds will germinate into big trees, which can support the mood for a shady. The reason why the Carrera series is so famous in the watch industry is not only because of its exquisite craftsmanship, but also because of its unique and varied style.

Bikini VS Cartier Blue Balloon Series W69010Z4 Watch

Don’t deny that the purpose of losing weight in the first half of the year is for summer bikinis. All women are wonderful in bikinis. The enemy of cellulite is not compactness, but confidence. Is it to give up the whole beach just for a little bit of perfect curve? Don’t be silly girl! The arms of the waves are open to someone, and you are no exception! Special reminder: if you are at the beach or other outdoor occasions, do n’t choose bikinis with steel rings and other decorations, because they will be burned by the sun.

Sunglasses VS Chanel Premiere H2433

 The most functional fashion accessory must be sunglasses. While blocking the hot sun, it can also add points to various bump shapes. The most versatile style in sunglasses is Ray-Ban. Regardless of gender, style or face. When Ray-Ban became an independent cultural concept, derivative styles based on it were also hot-selling seasonally. If you want to find a versatile and stylish item, I believe Ray-Ban will become your must-have partner. The so-called single product must have a single product, I think it is the look of Ray-Ban!

 Frankly, the wrist accessory that I first thought of when I saw Ray-Ban Mirror was Dafei, but it is a bit harsh to let ordinary girls also control it. It is most sexy to incorporate some feminine elements in some neutral styles. What is it like? Lady Boss in the upper body and Sexy Idol in the lower body. If you can appreciate it, then it feels very in place. In addition to Ray-Ban, the accessories are the Chanel Premiere series. The two seemingly irrelevant styles are fused together and have unexpected effects.
Aurora vs IWC Portofino Automatic IW356501

I never feel that luxury cars are noble. I think that cars that climb hills in summer are really ‘noble’. Imagine how delicate it is to drive around in the mountains in a good season with mountains and rivers. Of course, you ca n’t just be willing, but also ask if your chassis is willing. Many cars have a splattered mud idea to make it taste as sexy as your dripping sweat beads hanging on your skin. Don’t be afraid of difficult mountain roads and you won’t be crowded out by highways. The advent of the SUV has saved all urban hunters. It’s not important whether it’s the X5 or the old Cherokee. The important thing is whether the car and the landscape can melt together.
 IWC feels very gentleman, you know, sometimes gentlemen are more eager to be public, wrapped in a dull atmosphere for a long time or even longing for the uninhibited heart, can be completely released, find a Friday, throw office bags to work after work Trunk, unbutton a few shirts, drive alone to the depths of the mountains, open the skylight to see the stars is a wonderful thing, the night you spend with you will never be lonely and helpless, you are deep in your wandering, It will all be in the core.
 Summary: The arrival of summer is definitely a scalp, because the fear of summer heat will last for several months. Since there is nowhere to hide, there is no need to hide. It may not be necessary to take the above items and go out to the sun. unhappy. If you think the above method is very interesting, you can shut down the computer and try it out. When you are passionate about one thing, the process is often happier than the result, just like the summer weapon is not ice cream, but the mood of ice cream in your mouth.

Two Highlights Tasting Iwc Portuguese Chronograph ‘150th Anniversary’ Special Edition

The Portuguese series of IWC has always been the watch of choice for many watch friends. The Portuguese series of watches is the most magnificent watch among IWC watches, with a simple design. As an entry-level model of the Portuguese series, the price of Portuguese watches is also a watch that is easy to get started, which has led many watch buyers to put their first watch on the Portuguese watch.

   Today, the Watch House brings you a special edition of the Portuguese chronograph ‘150th Anniversary’ (model: IW371602), which is newly launched this year, to see what is unique about this special edition watch.

   The watch uses a 41 mm stainless steel case, which is 0.1 mm larger than the previous Portuguese meter. The watch has a white lacquered dial, which is the biggest difference of this particular model. It is very beautiful. No details have been changed except the dial. The watch is equipped with the IWC-produced 69355 movement. Because it is a self-produced movement, this watch also has a back-to-back.

   For screw-in models, the top of the crown is the timing start and stop buttons, and the bottom is the zero reset button.

   Black alligator strap with a stainless steel folding clasp. These are no different from ordinary IWC.

   The thickness of the case was increased to 13.1 mm and 0.5 mm, which should be the reason for the replacement of the self-produced movement. And this increased thickness has little effect on the wearing experience.

   The dial uses a lacquered dial, which is lacquered layer by layer with superb lacquer technology. We know that if the lacquer plate is not handled well, bubbles are easy to occur, and the lacquered dial of IWC is multi-layered. The lacquer is very thin, and the look of the final product is completely comparable to the enamel dial.

   The layout of the dial has not changed at all, and it still uses blue Arabic numerals and a 60-minute circle for peripheral transfer. The 3 o’clock position is the 60-second hour dial, and the 12 o’clock position is the 30-minute time dial. Both use blue willow pointers, exquisite and elegant.

   For the first time, the Portuguese watch has a back-through design, which makes people addicted. The watch uses a 69000-based 69535 self-produced movement. The movement uses the most iconic Woodpecker Pillerton winding, but this movement’s woodpecker does not use ceramic parts, but uses the previous yellow Copper parts. In addition, the movement is also polished in Geneva ripples and fish scales, providing a power reserve of 46 hours.

Summary: The Portuguese 150th Anniversary Special Edition has two of the most attractive features. The first is the use of a very beautiful lacquered dial. Secondly, I finally replaced the IWC’s self-produced movement and replaced it with a back-through, so that this IWC Portuguese entry-level Portuguese watch can finally see the movement structure from the back. This watch is limited to 2,000 pieces, priced at 58,400 RMB. Friends who are interested may wish to try it on in a specialty store.

Looking At The Vastness Of Blancpain’s ‘hearts In The Ocean’ Tour Theme Exhibition And ‘mobile Ocean Library’ Shenzhen Station

(May 21, 2016, Shenzhen) ‘Awakening the awareness of the ocean, transmitting the passion of life, protecting the blue ocean’ is the firm belief of Blancpain, the founder of classic timepieces. The love is derived from the vastness and depth of the ocean, and the ocean gives it inspiration and perseverance. Today, Blancpain promotes a number of marine public welfare undertakings in the name of ‘Heart is in the ocean’, calling on the public to pay attention to, understand, love and protect the ocean. From now until May 29, ‘Looking at the vastness-Blancpain Blancpain’s’ Heart of the Sea ‘Touring Theme Exhibition’ came to Shenzhen, the exhibition location is in the middle of the first phase of Shenzhen Vientiane City, Baoan South Road, Shenzhen.

   This theme exhibition richly presented the results and latest progress of the original marine expedition plan, coelacanth expedition research project, and the World Ocean Summit. At the same time, it also announced the launch of the Shenzhen Station of the Mobile Ocean Library. ‘Mobile Ocean Library’ is a marine awareness publicity and education project jointly launched by Blancpain and the China Oceanic Administration’s Mission Center in July 2015. This project invites people from all walks of life to donate marine-related books, and the donated books tour the country following the Blancpain ‘Heart on the Ocean’ theme exhibition, which is continuously and extensively collected and accumulated. All marine books eventually become collections and belong to Blancpain and the National Oceanic Administration The Marine Public Welfare Library planned to be established nationwide by the Mission Center. At present, the nation’s first marine public welfare library, Huafeng Primary School located in Shenhu Town, Jinjiang City, Fujian Province, is under construction. Since then, Blancpain will actively participate in the active exploration and practice of the marine awareness promotion model, and look forward to building more public education facilities and pathways to effectively disseminate marine awareness in the next few years.

Blancpain Limited Edition ‘Hearts of the Sea’ Watch: Deep Submersible Flyback Chronograph
   ‘噚’ is an English unit for measuring the depth of water (1 噚 = 1.8288 meters), and has also appeared in the song of Ariel in Shakespeare’s ‘The Storm’ coral.’). In the early 1950s, Blancpain’s then president, Jean-Jacques Fiechter, named the brand’s first modern diving watch as ‘Fifty Fifty Fathoms’. One of Blancpain’s most important keywords. As another interpretation of Fathom-‘understand the true meaning of things’, Blancpain not only never stopped the excellence of mechanical diving watch production, at the same time embracing the original heart and the ocean, through continuous, rich, comprehensive Public welfare initiatives to lead the public to explore and understand the vastness of human existence.
   In marine philanthropy, Blancpain has always focused on long-term projects, not short-term, temporary actions. Whether it’s traveling to China’s “Mind the Ocean” exhibition and the accompanying ocean books since 2015, or the nation’s first marine public welfare library under construction, all hope to find a way to connect with the public, especially the future of the country. The way of communication for teenagers will convey the beauty of the ocean. Marine consciousness doesn’t wake up in one day. It needs to start from now. This is an important step for the brand from the professional field to the public.

   The brand’s ‘heart-to-ocean’ public welfare undertakings, including the original marine expedition plan, coelacanth expedition research project, world ocean summit and other projects, use the brand’s own practice as a call to strengthen the faith of the audience to practice. Under the framework agreement signed between Blancpain and the State Oceanic Administration, the two jointly built the nation’s first marine public welfare library in Huafeng Primary School, Shenhu Town, Jinjiang City, Fujian Province, and are dedicated to the promotion and education of marine awareness. After the completion of the library, the school will launch actively related extra-curricular activities to enrich the spiritual world of young people with the well-being of life, the ocean.
   The library preserves human wisdom and cultural heritage, and books are one of the storage units. Regarding the importance of reading for the awakening of the marine consciousness, Mr. Liang Wendao, the culture ambassador of Blancpain, also shared his aesthetic experience of understanding the ocean through reading-the public can only understand the human memory, courage and hope contained in the ocean, and recognize humans and the ocean. Only through close connections can we better invest in marine public welfare.

   Knowing and doing trickle, seeing the vastness. Blancpain will continue to cultivate the blue, continue to invest in various public welfare fields such as marine exploration, protection, dialogue and education, and fulfill the lofty commitment of ‘mind the ocean’ with practical actions, gather everyone’s strength, and jointly guard the future of humankind. The vastness of beauty, faith and hope rises on the blue.

Van Cleef & Arpels Qualifications For Imagination

Jean-Marc Wiederrecht, a series of complex functions that gave birth to VAN CLEEF & ARPELS, has insisted on providing only complex function modules for many years. However, this convention In the double jump, the time of the two places was broken for Van Cleef & Arpels. On the other hand, compared with Van Cleef & Arpels’s focus on design in the past, this time they clearly showed their thoughts on mechanical structure. Makes this movement special.

VAN CLEEF & ARPELS fancy complication has long been one of the focal points expected by everyone in S.I.H.H., but we have never discussed it in this unit. The reason why such an interesting work has been ignored for a long time is mainly because we set this unit to focus on more basic and more developed movements. According to this standard, Van Cleef & Arpels’ complex functions It seems too unique; on the other hand, Jean-Marc Wiederrecht and his Agenhor workshop that spawned a series of complex functions in their own hands have for many years insisted not to make the entire movement, only to provide complex function modules , The base is the use of ETA, FP universal movement, this point is also inconsistent with our direction of the entire native movement, is that although they have fun new works every year, but we always Severely cut love.
There are several reasons for choosing this dual-hop time movement this time. First of all it is a complete native movement. Wiederrecht’s convention of providing only modules was broken for Van Cleef & Arpels for the first time in 2012. The small dolls that they co-launched were the first complete movements made by Wiederrecht for many years. Although it shows the symbolic significance of this movement, on the other hand, it can also see how big Van Cleef & Arpels’ face is. In fact, after completing this movement, Wiederrecht once said that after going through this case, he found that making a whole movement is actually quite fun, and maybe because of this, he has this second native machine two years later. core. There is one more reason to decide to introduce this one. In addition to the complicated functions of time jump and reverse jump, this one has a lot of basic performance worth discussing, and even has the potential to develop into a basic movement, and these Many of the basic settings were proposed by Van Cleef & Arpels. Compared to the past, they only focused on design, and the mechanical structure was completely delivered to the cooperative manufacturers. This time, the brand clearly showed its thoughts on institutions. This makes this movement special and interesting.
Van Cleef & Arpels decided at the early stage of communication that this movement must be self-winding, and that it can operate all functions with a single crown. In order to fit the so-called ‘PA49’ Pierre Arpels case, the thickness must not be too thick. These have affected many key designs of the whole movement later. In fact, it is not difficult to guess that Van Cleef & Arpels has these requirements. The automatic winding is to match the usage habits of the main demographics (possibly women), which is troublesome for manual winding. The single crown and thinness are It is based on design considerations. Like these, we can see that they have shown more and more ideas on the link between pure design and professional watchmaking. Therefore, the development of Van Cleef & Arpels in the future still has a lot of imagination.

Mini automatic disk (1)
Let’s talk about basic specifications first. Automatic winding also needs to take into account the thin type. The most commonly used method is the micro-automatic disk (now adding a circular automatic disk). In order to solve the problem of insufficient efficiency of the micro-automatic winding, this one chose the Magic Lever-style two-way winding. It is interesting that he added a ‘Demi-Dent (‘ Demi-Dent ( French Half-Tooth (half-tooth) ‘is an independent part. It is also a lever that extends to the left and right, with a toothed claw on each left and right, and the middle section is movable and semi-fixed. When Magic Lever sends automatic transmission When the wheel is turned, the half teeth will also swing left and right.

The left and right claws of the half tooth often bite the automatic transmission wheel at one side. The purpose of this action is to fix the position of the transmission wheel, so that Magic Lever can definitely hook and ensure the winding efficiency. This part was not installed in the Sample at the time of the exhibition, so it is not visible in some of the pictures in this article. Automatic discs are rarely equipped with upper splints, which are clamped and fixed from the upper and lower sides. The reason for this is that they believe that the one-sided fixing of ball bearings is prone to accumulate dirt, so they chose the bilateral fixing of gemstone bearings. On the upper splint, Magic Lever can also be installed above the automatic tray (usually below).

Double jump and retrograde minute hand (1)
Next is the important double jump time + retrograde minute hand. The key to this display method is synchronization. The two jumping and reverse jumping actions must be done in one go. The core of the entire mechanism is a fan-shaped lever. This lever has a segment of gear teeth at the position corresponding to the ‘shaft’ when the fan is opened and closed. This segment of gear teeth is connected to the front side (back side) of the movement through the substrate. Erfan; there is also a small rack in the middle of the fan edge. This segment is connected to the minute hand wheel in the center of the movement. Basically the movement of the minute hand has been established here.

Double jump and retrograde minute hand (2)
There are two claws (four claws) at each end of the fan edge. Each pair of claws is responsible for controlling a group of jumping time display. A pair of left and right claws of a pair of pawls respectively abut a tooth of a jumping wheel, and the right paw is made into an elastic bow shape. With the second car driving the entire lever, the pressure of the right paw against the jumping wheel will gradually build up. At the same time, slowly slide out the edge of the gear teeth. When the two claws completely slide out, the reverse jumping mechanism will drive the entire lever to rebound. At this time, the two claws will simultaneously hook the jumping wheel and rotate one tooth to complete the jumping Action, and the pair of hooks at the other end also perform the same action at the same time. A series of actions are linked by the same fan-shaped lever, and there is no time difference.

Appearance and development
The movement board circuit is quite unique, some of which are designed by Van Cleef & Arpels based on aesthetic requirements, such as the star arrangement at the junction of the plywood. The balance wheel bridge is also very special. In addition to a total of three fixed points, the governor itself is also very rare. This is Wiederrecht’s patent-pending exclusive governor. At least four adjustments can be seen above. It can be determined that the plus and minus scales should be the fast and slow hands. Wiederrecht said that the torque of this movement is extremely strong, and the current mechanism actually uses only a small part. In other words, this movement will have more heavier decoration and even other functions in the future.
