 The cooperation between Tudor and Ducati started in 2011. The two are far better than a pure alliance between brands, but a sympathy for values ​​and entrepreneurial spirit, and a courage to act. In 2013, the two sides sparked unexpected sparks. Tudor launched the Speed ​​Riding Black Shield chronograph and its unmatched spirit of Ducati Diavel motorcycles, which also confirmed the extraordinary cooperation between the two parties.

 The newly released Diavel Titanium Global Limited Edition model, Diavel Titanium, not only inherits the iconic power and unique design concept of the Diavel Devil family, but also applies the top material in the motorcycle manufacturing industry, titanium. Alloy, cast the extraordinary characteristics of Diavel Titanium devil titanium alloy version.

With its resolute and confident personality, it exhibits extraordinary explosive power. The two complement each other and are a perfect interpretation of extraordinary strength and strong temperament.

 Tudor Fastrider Black Shield is an extraordinary sports chronograph. It combines extraordinary strength, masculinity, and reliability in one, with a personality that is like a fire. The black matte ceramic case of Tudor Riding Black Shield Chronograph is one-piece, and it is scratch-resistant, which is a model of the same type. The ceramic case is all injection molded from high-tech ceramics, and is integrally formed, instead of being covered with a ceramic coating on another material, it is unique in the same type of watch. The watch is water-resistant to 150 meters (500 feet), equipped with direct-embedded buttons and a PVD-treated stainless steel screw-in crown. The 42-mm diameter case is equipped with a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement with a power reserve of 46 hours .

Langue Watches Luminous New Hong Kong Listing

ZEITWERK showed a new look of time, and aroused a enthusiastic response with precise word jump and iconic design. The new ‘Luminous’ version makes it easy to read in the dark. The technical challenge in developing this watch was to provide light for the numbers that were hidden under the dial most of the time. Lange’s experts found the solution: adding a translucent but UV-permeable coating to the sapphire crystal dial. It’s like inverted sunglasses: the light transmission in the visible spectrum is weakened, so only the outline of the word-jumping structure can be seen. Ultraviolet has a wavelength of 250 to 430 nanometers, so it can penetrate the coating unhindered, giving the Superluminova digital energy that can glow for several hours at night.
The science of watchmaking

   Lange has always believed that there is no contradiction between innovation and tradition. Ferdinando-Adolf-Langer and his son have long relied on scientific research when they wanted to take the ideal of making the best watch in the world a long time ago. Modern generations of Lange engineers and movement designers often collaborate with universities and research institutes to research the latest technology for demanding Lange watch owners. A strict rule was born: every innovative technology must be truly useful.

   Saxony’s metallurgy has a long history, even dating back to medieval alchemy. At that time, people believed that mysterious magic stones could turn cheap metals into gold. The luckiest result in the record is the European porcelain invented in Dresden 300 years ago. Lange did not find the mysterious magic stone, but successfully developed a new alloy that is stronger than all existing alloys. Chemically speaking, the new ‘honey-colored’ gold is a type of 18K gold alloy with a gold content of 75%. Honey-colored gold can have a charming color between rose gold and platinum, thanks to copper and zinc. A small amount of manganese mixture combined with special high temperature treatment makes the alloy have extraordinary hardness.

   Honey-colored gold has a Vickers hardness of 300 to 320 HV, which is twice as hard as gold and rose gold with Vickers hardness of 135 to 150 HV. In the Vickers hardness test, a pyramid-shaped diamond is pressed against the surface of the test material with an accurate force, and then the hardness of the material is calculated by a special formula based on the diagonal length of the permanent indentation. The benefits of the new alloy are obvious: honey-colored gold has beaten all other gold alloys in the scratch resistance test.
Why Lange’s star is so bright

   It symbolizes Lange’s constant pursuit of extreme precision. The moon phase transmission of the watch is extremely accurate. Only after more than a thousand years will it deviate from the actual moon age cycle by one day. A closer look at the coating of the moon phase discs shows how Lange’s experts are fascinated by the details: they want the unique charm of the night sky on the watch. Experts and scientists who have just joined the team to help develop the moon phase disk work together to develop a new coating that is closer to nature.

   The traditional moon phase disk coating technology in the watchmaking industry is not enough to meet the requirements of bright colors and clear outlines made by Lange technicians for decorative details. The new process requires a very hard carbon film to be processed by physical vapour deposition (PVD) as a gold moon phase disk. The roughness of the surface of the moon phase disc is precisely adjusted, so it can be adjusted to the ideal hue and has high wear resistance. The interference effect caused bystanders’ eyes to see a dark blue canopy like a clear starry sky, and the stars were cut with excimer lasers that make complex semiconductor circuits. This ultra-precision technology does not leave any burned marks on the edges, so the stars with perfectly smooth edges are shining and particularly brilliant.

Starting The Journey Again Watch House Report 2014 Sihh Departure

In 2013, the year passed away from our fingers. For our watchmakers, the past year has been a tumultuous year. The three watch exhibitions in Geneva, Basel and Hong Kong each have their own characteristics. I am very excited to follow the reports of each exhibition. I feel that the last exhibition report was like yesterday. Many new watches have not been digested and interpreted. The new exhibition has begun. Today’s watch home The front report team embarked on the journey once again to cover the entire SIHH Geneva International Haute Horlogerie 2014.

  Due to its closeness to China’s most grand festival, the “Spring Festival”, the airport’s T3 terminal has been hung with red lanterns full of annual flavor. I hope that our watch industry will also have a good harvest next year.

We still chose the familiar Swiss Airlines flight, departing from gate E14 until Zurich and then connecting to Geneva. The whole journey takes about 14 hours. It leaves at 3:30 in the morning, Beijing time. It is now 12 in the morning, Beijing time. We just finished a simple visit to the hotel to do a live broadcast for everyone.
  
  Both Zurich and Geneva airports are relatively small, and even transfers are not very time consuming.

As soon as I saw the plane, I saw a variety of watch brand advertisements. Every time I came to Switzerland, I had to admire that this is the world of watches and clocks, so that there are many unknown brands, but I believe everyone in the picture above is familiar .

  Vending machines inside the airport. Here you see the super expensive Evian mineral water sold in China. Evian is also cheaper in Switzerland. There are many types of vending machine foods, including sandwiches and apples.

Swiss Airliner.

  If I have to rank Swiss specialties, I personally think that it is: watches, sabers, chocolates, kettles, etc. Each of the small desserts on our plane is a small piece of chocolate, which tastes good.

  As soon as I saw an expensive Rolls-Royce at the airport, European brands were generally seen on the streets of Switzerland. Japanese products were often seen but not mainstream.

  After checking in at the hotel, we rushed to the exhibition hall non-stop. Since Richemont Group will continue to hold a table show in Hong Kong for the next two years, the number of media invitations to report visits to Switzerland this time has been much reduced compared to before. Because we belong to process the door card in advance very quickly, because there are relatively few people.

  On the way to the exhibition hall, we walked through a swath of Swiss houses. The cities that had not experienced war looked so quiet and peaceful together. The cozy living environment was really enviable. Because this article is mostly shot with a mobile phone while traveling The picture quality is inevitably uneven, so for more details about the 2014 SIHH report, please continue to pay attention to other articles in our Watch House.

Mother Of Pearls Feminine Beauty Parmigiani Kalpa Piccola And Kalpa Donna 20th Anniversary Watch

At the 20th anniversary of Parmigiani Fleurier, the brand launched the Kalpa Piccola and Kalpa Donna Anniversary Edition women’s watches. The case of both watches has an iconic tonneau shape. Parmigiani took the opportunity to release a new quartz movement entirely in rose gold. This movement is hidden under a stainless steel case, like a noble and elegant jewel hidden in a treasure chest.

Mother-of-pearl dial
 The Kalpa Piccola and Kalpa Donna Anniversary Edition watches feature a mother-of-pearl dial, a precious material that is feminine. The natural pattern of mother-of-pearl presents an enamel-like transparent texture, which is carefully carved by the craftsmen to divide the 12-hour scale. Such a delicate dial decoration is like a layer of tulle, which makes people forget about the complexity of the watchmaking world and turn into the feminine world of femininity.

 A tiny diamond is embedded in the dial surface in a sealed setting and becomes the focal point of sight. It allows the leap of light to spread on the mother-of-pearl dial, highlighting its three-dimensional impression. It is also the earliest model launched by Parmigiani, with the brand logo embossed under the dial, which is the finishing touch of the anniversary edition.

 This model has a mother-of-pearl dial in four different colors. Orange-red dial with red leather strap; bright white dial with off-white leather strap; light purple dial with white enamel leather strap to complement each other; finally, taupe leather strap with Tahiti mother-of-pearl dial. A stainless steel bracelet perfectly complements the dials in these four tones, adding a touch of modernity to the watch. The number 96 represents the year of establishment of the Parmigiani brand. As a result, each model is limited to 96 pieces.
Gold movement
 Through the back of the watch, you can see the delicate and beautiful structure of the rose gold movement; the bottom plate, the splint and the gear are made in the watchmaking factory of Parmigiani, and are decorated with the exquisite characteristics unique to high-end watches.

 The central splint is shaped like a drop-shaped lug unique to the Parmigiani watch; this pattern is also engraved on the back of the movement, like countless iconic symbols lingering around three rubies. Every process is very complicated due to the material, and in order to maintain the slim shape of the watch, the movement must be built in a very narrow plate, which fully demonstrates Parmigiani’s excellent watchmaking technology.

 Kalpa Piccola and Kalpa Donna Anniversary models are different in size, but both show the same spirit of watchmaking: high-end timepieces exuding charming femininity, and carrying the 20 years of Parmigiani watchmaking craftsmanship.

Seagull Watches Will Be Put Into The Embrace Of Shanghai Jahwa-news Sea-gull

While its classic product ‘Seagull Shampoo’ is fading out of the public eye, another ‘Seagull’ may be put into the embrace of Shanghai Jahwa. In response to the rumor that the Group will acquire Tianjin Seagull Watch Group (formerly Tianjin Watch Factory), several executives of Shanghai Jahwa have acquiesced in this matter on different occasions, and disclosed that ‘I hope Tianjin Seagull will be listed in a listed company.’ Good things are coming.
Chasing ‘Seagulls’ for three years
As early as last year when Ping An entered the Shanghai Jahwa Group, the market rumored that ‘Jahwa Group will take a 20% stake in Tianjin Seagull.’ However, there was no response from Jahwa at that time.
In 2012, several senior executives of Shanghai Jahwa defaulted on this matter on different occasions.

In March, a researcher familiar with the reporter rushed to the company to investigate. According to his disclosure, the executives admitted at the time that ‘the group has been tracking the seagull project for 3 years. At present, the company’s principle is to develop projects that are not related to cosmetics in the group. There is no decision on whether to put it into a listed company.
At the shareholders meeting of Shanghai Jahwa at the end of May, Chairman Ge Wenyao said, ‘I have been in contact with the Seagull Watch Factory since 2009. The company has also participated in bidding for one year. Now the company and major shareholders have returned to the equity participation project. There are some differences and the company will meet again for discussion. ‘
At a recent institutional exchange meeting in June, Shanghai Jahwa executives further revealed: ‘At present, Tianjin Watch Factory is going through the process and hopes to be listed in listed companies.’
Yesterday, a person from Shanghai Jahwa’s public relations department admitted to the reporter, ‘The company is indeed negotiating the acquisition of Tianjin Seagull Watch, but there is no latest progress.’
‘Core’ unable to spread wings
In the domestic watch market, ‘Tianjin Seagull’ can be regarded as a famous brand. As early as the 1950s, the Seagull Group developed China’s first mechanical watch, and then continuously set a number of ‘firsts’ in the history of Chinese watchmaking: China’s first watch ‘Five Star’ brand, China’s first export watch ‘Seagull Watch’ and the first female watch that meets international standards.
It is understood that the current Seagull mechanical watch movement accounts for about 20% of the world’s total output, and products with independent intellectual property rights account for 85%. The three core technologies of ‘Tourbillon, Three Questions, Perpetual Calendar’, which were only mastered by watchmaking powers such as Switzerland, were also conquered one by one by seagulls.

But the disadvantages of seagulls are also obvious. According to insiders of the company, ‘General Ge admits that Seagull now produces watches with very advanced technology that can compete with international standards, but currently these watches do not have a market. It lacks fashionable design and lacks smooth sales channels, all of which are state-owned enterprises. A set of practices. He believes that if we buy this watch factory, with our understanding and grasp of state-owned enterprises, we will have an advantage over others to let them take advantage of state-owned brands and make a market. ‘
At the exchange meeting in June, an executive of the company also said, ‘Seagull watches have no marketing department and no channels, and the capital turnover is once a year and a half. The price of a single watch is not high, the movement business is a loss, and 44% is negative gross profit. , 22% is 5% gross profit. The company accounts for the majority of sales revenue of the double tourbillon, only 2-3 companies in the country do. ‘He did not say that’ a good watch should improve the technical content and strengthen the design and brand operation. ‘

The researchers at the scene also described Shanghai Jahwa’s blueprint for seagulls. ‘The seagull currently sells 500 million yuan with a profit of 20 million to 30 million yuan and an estimated value of 800 million yuan. The group plans to sell 20,000 watches in five years’ time, ex-factory price From 30,000 to 1.2 billion, the gross profit margin reached 87%. Even at 80% gross profit, there was 1.92 billion gross profit. Seagull has to achieve two goals, one is to achieve international first-line brands; the second is to have pricing for the movement. right.’
Not only that, Jahwa also intends, ‘After the acquisition of Seagull, we can expand the industrial chain and let it spin off and go public.’
5-10 times the potential benefits
It is always Ge Wenyao’s dream to build a high-end fashion industry group. It is precisely because of Ping An’s ‘recognition of Jahwa’s diversified fashion industry development strategy’ commitment, so that Jahwa Group in the battle for equity, Tianping moved to Ping An. And since the peace came into power, this dream has been inserted into the wings of funds.
Ge Wenyao once told reporters that ‘Ping An has sufficient funds and will fully support Jahwa’s investment and business development. As for the requirements for assessment, the first is compliance, and it is necessary to provide unreserved accounting audit reports every year. The second is to require performance growth, at least five to five times the investor return. ‘

Above The Clouds, Dreaming About Life, Flying Dreams That Will Never Fade

Flight, a slang word that was only a dream in more than a hundred years ago. As the Wright brothers’ planes took off, the flight dreams of mankind became a reality step by step. For people in the new century, New tricks have evolved-paragliding, winged flight, skydiving … You must have envied those who believe in freedom and unruly flight in the sky, and have restlessly longed for the madness away from the flat land. dream.
Type 20: Guardian of the Flying Dreamer

‘Father of Aviation’ Brylio and Blelio All Early 20th Century Zenith Pilot Type 20 Aircraft Watch
   The French ‘father of aviation’ Brerio is world-famous for his successful flight over the English Channel, but challenges like this are extremely dangerous and have raised concerns about the safety of flying instruments. Aviation flight has extremely high requirements for watches and instruments. In the 1930s, those stringent technical indicators were named after TYPE 20 and became the standard for aviation instruments. Zenith was one of the first manufacturers of aircraft instruments. Its pilot series, named TYPE 20, is one of the few honorary members of the flying instrument temple. In 1909, Brelio flew across the Channel wearing the Zenith TYPE 20 aircraft watch in the early 20th century to challenge the English Channel. In the thick fog and raging wind, you can only rely on the wrist watch and visual intuition to judge the route. God favored the dream chaser, and eventually Brillio escaped from the plane that fell to the ground and became the ‘first person’ for international cross-sea flight.
Zenith’s new Type 20 watch: ‘flying’ out of ‘absolute’ attitude

Zenith Pilot’s Watch TYPE 20 Special Edition, 40 mm, reference price: RMB 42,900

Montblanc Launches New Villeret 1858 Tourbillon Watch

Montblanc has made every effort to produce the latest model of the Montblanc Collection Villeret 1958 (Grand Tourbillon Heures Mystérieuses) in memory of the town of Villeret The 150th anniversary of the establishment of Minerva and the re-opening of the ‘Minerva Institute for Advanced Watchmaking Technology’. Just looking at the name of the new watch is enough to keep the world’s watch collectors holding their breath, expecting to see this mysterious watch as soon as possible.
    The limited edition of the Tourbillon Mystic Time watch only releases one platinum model, eight platinum models and eight rose gold models each, which is more scarce and more precious than the previous ‘Viller 1858 Series’.

    The large-size tourbillon of the Tourbillon Mystic Time watch occupies a considerable amount of space, and its appearance has a preemptive effect. The Villeret 1858 series is an example of Montblanc’s fine watchmaking craftsmanship, and today it is logical to add a tourbillon watch. The tourbillon can offset the errors caused by the gravity when the balance spring is in the vertical position. It is the most sophisticated watchmaking technology. Looking around today’s altar, only the best watchmakers can master it. However, the new tourbillon of the Villeret 1858 series is even better: the tourbillon frame at 12 o’clock is separated from the movement, and its space is not inferior to the hour and minute dial below the dial. Just look at the layout structure and exquisite design Has been aloof.

    The tourbillon frame rotates once every minute along the axis, and consists of 95 parts including the balance wheel. The entire structure weighs only 0.96 grams. The diameter of the tourbillon frame is 14.6 mm, and the swing frequency of the high inertia balance wheel is 59 mgcm2 per hour. 18,000 times (2.5 Hz); it is worth noting that by adjusting the three Minerva scissor activity compensation screws on the tourbillon arc frame, the tourbillon can be raised to the optimal operating state. The steel-made tourbillon bridge is shaped like two horizontally overlapping 8-characters, symbolizing infinite time and fine handwork. It is a rare work of art. All parts of the bridge and frame are cut from solid steel. After the master watchmaker performs the fine processes of forming, chamfering and grinding by hand, it takes 3 weeks to make a tourbillon!

Mysterious time display

    There is no shortage of dazzling mysterious pendulum clocks in the history of clocks and watches: the hour and minute hands are set on crystal glass, hidden above or below or on the side of the crystal glass at the movement position behind the dial, connected to the teeth of the glass, The movement of the glass is driven by the movement of the movement. At first glance, the minute hand seems to float in the air.
    The time display mode of the Tourbillon Mysterious Time Watch is also based on this principle. The only difference is the use of opaque mirror dials. Two thin paper-like transparent sapphire crystals are embossed with the hour and minute hands. Parallax is caused by the reflection of the mirror dial The two pointers are like dancing in the air. This watch is equipped with a Minerva 65.60 manual winding movement consisting of 286 parts. Most of them are developed by hand and have a 50-hour power reserve. The movement has a strange structure and the tourbillon is separated from the transmission wheel system. It also has a ‘floating’ The mysterious time display system is really the most fascinating new work this year.
Precious metal case, beautifully crafted
    The Tourbillon Mystic Time watch is available in three designs of platinum, 18K white gold and 18K rose gold. The workmanship is exquisite: the rounded lines narrow slightly to the 6 o’clock position in a drop shape, making it more comfortable to wear on the wrist. So far, of all Villeret 1858 series models, only this watch does not have a transparent back and a slingshot back, but it is attractive: first, the dial has clearly shown the beauty of the tourbillon, and in order to implement the watch The mysterious name, the sealed caseback engraved with the signature of watchmaker Demetrio Cabiddu completely shields the movement, in order to retain a sense of mystery. The bezel design also embodies Montblanc’s design thinking: the part from 8 o’clock to 12 o’clock is concave, and the part from 4 to 8 o’clock is convex. The uneven surface is smoothly connected and flawless. The production process is extremely complicated. The craftsmanship of the shell craftsman is evident. The beautiful case lines are perfectly combined with the micro-arched sapphire crystal glass, which is not bad, and it is clear and beautiful.

Crafted, craftsmanship: gold model with machine-engraved gold dial, platinum model with optional dial

    The guilloche gold dial of the Tourbillon Mystic Time watch is carefully carved and hand-carved, continuing another watchmaking art tradition: the dials of white and rose gold models are decorated with Parisian spikes (Clous de Paris), the unique platinum dial material, decoration and design are chosen by the owner.
    The manual engraving machine engraved the repeated pit pattern on the dial surface is the essence of the traditional guilloché pattern. It is difficult to master the trick without years of training. Therefore, the dials of white and rose gold models are printed with GUILLOCHE MAIN SUISSE ( Guilloche pattern Swiss-made) highlights its craft value; together with the words GRAND TOURBILLON HEURES MYSTERIEUSES and VILLERET 1858 on the dial, it means that its rigorous production level and value are far higher than ordinary Swiss Made watches. The 6 o’clock position of the mirror dial is roman numerals and long oblique hour markers, and the hour and minute hands dance on it; this position is also decorated with the Montblanc six-pointed star logo and the mother-of-pearl star logo set in the large crown.

Follow the strictest watchmaking principles
    The Montblanc Villeret 1858 series first interviewed in 2007 fully complies with the traditional Swiss watchmaking process. Each finished product is the result of intricate and complicated manual and grooming procedures, so the annual output is only hundreds. At the same time, each movement is limited to 288 pieces (288 is 2 箩: 1 箩 is 12 dozens, which is a total of 24 dozens; 箩 is a unit of calculation commonly used in watchmaking). Montblanc develops new movements in order to inherit the traditional philosophy of timepiece production and meticulous attention to detail. The advanced chronograph movements produced by Minerva Watch Factory in the past can be regarded as a model. The structure of the new generation of movement, the beautiful shape of the splint and lever are in the same line with the technological aesthetic standards passed down from previous generations of Menaihua. Only a few master figures can master this level of polishing and modification skills. Montblanc Viller’s 1858 series of movement parts and all components have been repeatedly adjusted and tested by the master’s hands. It can be described as a masterpiece, and it is more precious and rare. The output of each model subtly represents the year of establishment of Minerva (1858): 1 platinum model, 8 platinum models and 58 rose gold models.

Tailor-made design, distinguished and unique

    If the limited edition is still too late, the movement design and modification can also be based on the personal preferences of the watch owner. The watch owner can contact the wrist of the Institute of Advanced Watchmaking Technology (Institut Minerva de Recherche en Haute Horlogerie). Experts and designers communicate with each other and finalize the final selection based on the suggestions provided by the experts.

    Although the choice of watch owner is basically unlimited, in the end it must be in line with the spirit of Montblanc Villeret 1858 series. Whether the watchmaker loves platinum or Nepali slate dials, paved with pure white or fancy yellow diamonds, or pinch enamel dials, Montblanc will make every effort to show the master’s wishes as long as the technology is feasible and does not hinder the functioning of the watch. Montblanc also assured the watch owners that its tailor-made Villeret 1858 series watches are unique and unique, which are rare and enhance the value of collection.

    Villeret 1858 series is limited to 288 pieces per movement, making each distinguished watch a collector’s dream, the essence of fine watchmaking. Montblanc has launched a number of Villeret 1858 models since 2007, which has been greatly appreciated by watchmakers and sold out within a few weeks.
Concentrated essence of watchmaking art

    Montblanc Villeret 1858 series not only contains historical and cultural values, but also a timepiece art treasure. In order to highlight its noble value, this series of watches is not only produced in limited quantities, but also in a leather-encrusted box with a beautifully crafted lithograph set, which showcases the historical buildings of the Minerva Watch Factory, the views of the Jurassic Mountains, the movement drawing and Designated watch images, including the watch image, so lithographs are as rare as the same watch, with the watch’s limited number and the autograph of the master watchmaker Demetrio Cabiddu .
