Balber Chinese Calendar Reappears Traditional Classic Splendor

The world’s first Chinese calendar introduced by Blancpain at the 2012 Basel Watch Fair was a surprise, expressing a pure Swiss watch manufacturer’s understanding of oriental cultural traditions and Swiss manufacturing. The loyal tribute to the origin of the table is the king of the topic of the year. As a leader in the traditional watchmaking industry, Blancpain launched the world’s first Chinese calendar at the Basel 2012 in Paris with four surprises, perfectly running the ancient Chinese calendar and calendar on the watch, expressing It is a Swiss watchmaker who pays high respect to the oriental cultural tradition and the origins of Swiss watchmaking, and is the king of the topic of the year.
    At the moment when modern watch products are dedicated to the field of fine watchmaking, the Blancpain watchmaking workshop in Le Brassus has introduced the world’s first Chinese calendar to the world, highlighting its style as a leader in the traditional fine watchmaking industry. The biggest feature of this watch is that the traditional Chinese ‘yin and yang stems’ year and calendar are perfectly presented on the dial, and the Swiss watchmaking technology and Chinese traditional calendar have successfully realized the eastern and western culture on the 45 mm diameter dial. The collision conveyed the understanding and appreciation of Western timekeeping crafts to Chinese traditional culture. This is the first time that the Chinese Yin and Yang calendar has been functionalized in the field of timepieces, and it also reflects the commonalities between Blancpain and the Chinese civilization-the Chinese civilization is constantly updated and improved based on traditional wisdom, and the essence of Blancpain’s brand is exactly ‘traditional and traditional Innovation. ‘
    The Chinese calendar is beyond the simple concept of using image totems or Chinese characters. The dial layout of the timepiece is exquisite, and the hour, minute and standard calendars are on the dial. It also integrates important timing elements in the traditional Chinese calendar, such as twelve hours (20 Four hours), the lunar calendar date, the lunar month (combined with the leap month display), the zodiac year, and even the five elements and ten days. In the process of research and development, the team of Blancpain watchmakers has overcome the problem of irregular Chinese calendar system, solved the display problem of the solar calendar and the Chinese lunar calendar, and integrated the moon phase profit and loss function closely related to the Chinese calendar, achieving extraordinary masterpieces.
    How to present the complex and rich traditional Chinese calendar on the dial is the biggest technical challenge that the Blancpain watchmaker team faces in the research and development process. It not only faces the difference between the two timing methods, but also two timing cultures. The differences between Eastern and Western cultures behind it. The traditional solar calendar (Gregory calendar, which is now widely used as the standard Gregorian calendar) adopted by western countries, belongs to the flat calendar defined by the flat time period. The number of days is basically fixed and the rules are not set. It has no strong astronomical significance.

    Unlike the standard calendar, which uses the solar day as the basic unit, the Chinese traditional lunar calendar uses a yin and yang calendar system. The average calendar month is equal to a lunar month. The moon is set so that the average calendar year is a return year. The twenty-four solar terms are set to reflect the season. Characteristics of the annual movement), and also includes the twelve dry calendars and seventy-two special solar calendars, which comprehensively reflects the influence of the sun and the moon on the earth. It is based on the monthly transport cycle (29.53059 days). The unit’s solar calendar determines the complexity and richness of its content. A lunar year contains 12 lunar months (354.36707 days), which is about 11 days less than a lunar year (365.242374 days). Therefore, in some years, there will be a leap month (as indicated by the ‘wax’ on the dial) to match the cycle of the four seasons. Since each Chinese lunar month (including the leap month) begins on the day of the new moon, the month is 29 or 30 days long. It can be seen that the lunar year including the leap month is actually 13 months, which is longer than the solar calendar. On the contrary, the lunar year without the leap month is only 12 months, which is shorter than the solar year. The typical characteristic of this traditional calendar is the cause of the uncertain date of the Chinese New Year.
    Due to the complexity and technical difficulty of the traditional Chinese calendar, no one has used it for a long time. However, Blancpain has made unremitting efforts to develop the world’s first Chinese almanac, turning complex celestial bodies into orbital gear trains with smaller gears than pen nibs, breaking through the combination of western traditional solar calendar and traditional Chinese calendar and lunar calendar. Many technical difficulties make the traditional Chinese ‘yin and yang stem and branch’ year and calendar perfectly presented on the dial. The Chinese calendar is equipped with Calibre 3638’s new self-winding movement. The movement consists of 434 parts set with 39 gems and a power reserve of up to 7 days. The number of parts far exceeds 200 complex models such as Caroline and Tourbillon. Number of parts. The watch is complex in craftsmanship and exquisite in technology. It perfectly presents many time elements without periodic patterns on the dial.
    Among them, the hour hand, minute hand and standard calendar are located in the center of the dial; the small dial at 12 o’clock displays hour numbers and characters (24-hour cycle); the 3 o’clock position displays five elements and ten days (10-year cycle); 9 o’clock The position displays the lunar month (12-month cycle), the lunar day (30-day cycle), and the leap month; the year window at 12 o’clock shows the zodiac year (12-year cycle), and the moon phase profit and loss display is located at 6 o’clock on the dial. The orientation of the clock adds to the viewing pleasure and practical value. It is worth mentioning that, as an important chronograph element in Blancpain’s full calendar watch, the moon phase display in the watch’s complex functions finally has the most suitable display in the Chinese calendar. As mentioned earlier, the lunar phase profit and loss function is closely related to the traditional Chinese calendar, because the Gregorian calendar is based on the sun’s operating rules, and only the Chinese lunar calendar is a reference time that combines the sun and the moon. The fifteenth month is the full moon. It most closely matches the Chinese lunar calendar, and it can be said that it really shows the mysterious beauty of Chinese traditional timekeeping.
    The Chinese calendar is not only an inheritance and development of traditional Chinese culture, but also a bold innovation in Blancpain’s watchmaking technology. This is the first time that Blancpain has combined ancient Chinese traditional culture functionally and culturally with traditional Swiss watchmaking technology. It is also a breakthrough in challenging the tradition and innovative functions of Blancpain for the development of world clocks. Another outstanding contribution. The gorgeous fusion of Swiss watchmaking skills with the traditional wisdom of the East makes this watch extremely precious and highly collectible. It is believed that its ingenious craftsmanship and long-lasting elegance will be deeply loved, and it will still be highly respected after the lead.

Old And New Material Omega Speedster Grey Side Of The Moon

Dark Side of the Moon, which was launched before OMEGA, won the Geneva Watch Award in 2014-it is relatively rare that it won the best replica watch. Generally speaking, it is rarely used now. The moon watch was treated as a replica watch; the good news was that a Grey Side of the Moon was launched the following year. In terms of this color-changing trick, we seem to have been immune for a long time, but the same tricks made by OMEGA are different. On the one hand, gray ceramic is indeed a new color that has never been seen before, and the watch is used here. The technology is special.

Feature one: white to gray ceramics
The watch is made of ceramic material in the case, bezel, outer ring of the bottom cover, crown, and the handle, and the interior should be like the dark side of the moon without a metal inner case, which can be said to be a very thorough ceramic watch. The so-called gray ceramics are actually discolored by the action of reheating the white ceramics. In the specific process, the white ceramics are first processed from pressurization, sintering, and cutting to a shape close to the finished product, and then placed in 20,000 degrees Celsius. And, it was burned in a plasma heating furnace filled with special gas for three hours, and the white ceramic was able to change color to a special color and texture like metal instead of metal. The method of warming and discoloring is quite new. In fact, the hardness of white ceramics is much higher than that of black ceramics as far as the author knows. The early processing itself is already very difficult, so the technical content of this production is indeed Compared with the previous month, the black face is improved.

The dark side of the moon and the gray side of the sub-face plate are different from ordinary models, the outer ring scale has another protrusion, the gray surface of the plate is made of platinum and then sandblasted. Coaxial chronograph hands is a major feature of the 9300 series movement

Feature two: ceramic technology innovation symbolizes the progress of craftsmanship
In fact, the development of ceramic processing was originally a very prominent piece of watchmaking technology in recent years. From color changes (whether using temperature control or chemical agents), doping with metals to change the hardness and texture, and even pure ceramics can be processed by plasma treatment. Showing a metallic luster, new technologies appear almost every year, but on the other hand, the development of these technologies is also conducive to the popularization of cutting tools, allowing new materials to be formed into products, all of which have witnessed the rapid progress of the watch industry.

The luminous speed of the tachymeter scale is a new design. In the production, the laser is used to engrav the numbers on the ceramic bezel, and then the light-absorbing coating is filled in. The front of the bezel is made of concentric circles of hair, and the sides are polished. Different textures also create different colors.

Feature three: enhanced luminous effect
In addition to the color of ceramics, this one also adds eggs that are not on the black surface for a month. That is, the speed scale on the bezel and the OMEGA Logo on the crown are also filled with luminous paint. The sex-less, luminous crown logo is purely a boon, but the new design is indeed pleasing, aside from the performance of the boot. The dial of the watch is sandblasted with platinum material to create a matte rough texture; the dial of the lunar surface has several different surface treatment methods, such as the black surface of the moon is polished, The 57th engraved version has also used radial patterns, but in the final analysis, the matte blasting should still be the most orthodox method of the lunar surface. Even the two-year-old lunar watch (black and gray on the moon) performs better than the basic models, and the designer’s keen Sense is indispensable.

OMEGA’s Super Comagnetic technology, Master Co-axial, has not been applied to the 9300 series before, but it seems that it is only a matter of time; the moon watch and the transparent sapphire crystal are Box-type, which is quite rare in the market.

Gray ceramic material / 9300 automatic movement / hours, minutes, small seconds, date display / chronograph function / COSC Observatory certification / sapphire crystal, transparent bottom cover / waterproof 50 meters / table diameter 44.25mm / reference price: 83,000

Audemars Piguet 2014 High Jewellery Watch

Audemars Piguet once again presented extraordinary high-end jewellery models this year, adding dazzling light to the 2014 women’s collection, while showing the watchmaker’s well-recognized skills in this strict top-level watchmaking field.

 AUDEMARS PIGUET 2014 Fine Jewellery Watch
 Audemars Piguet builds a bridge that spans 1883 to the present, endlessly continuing the brand’s fine jewelry making tradition, creating an amazing women’s watch. Just eight years after the company was founded, Audemars and his partner Piguet set out to make women’s watches. The brand is known for producing complex-function men’s movements, but women’s watches demand very different technologies. Limited space for women’s watches makes assembly of the movement a challenge. Once these technical hurdles have been crossed, jewellers, gem setters and engravers can start refining their watches.
 AUDEMARS PIGUET 2014 High Jewellery Watch (Back)
 Essentially, the entire production process hasn’t changed much since the beginning. The creation of fine jewellery watches is still complicated and requires a team of highly skilled designers, gem inlays, engravers and watchmakers to work together. Against the backdrop of the breathtaking scenery of the Jura Valley, nature has become the protagonist of these outstanding works.
