Kate Princess Visits Cartier In Her Left Hand And Holds Her In Her Right Hand

Prince William and his beloved wife, Kate, went to Sydney with their son to start ‘diaper diplomacy.’ This time, Cartier’s blue balloon watch worn by Kate was after Princess Diana’s visit to Australia in 1983. A classic continuation, Cartier in the left hand and baby in the right hand, has this already become the tradition of the royal family visiting Australia and New Zealand?

 Little Prince George’s first appearance ‘diaper diplomacy’ sees first results

 Princess Kate and Prince William hugged the little prince George who had not yet been weaned and went to New Zealand to start ‘diaper diplomacy’. Rather than diplomatic politics, the little prince seems more interested in toys and mommy’s hair.

 Princess Kate wears Cartier blue balloon series steel 36mm size

 This time the couple both wore watches. Princess Kate also chose Cartier’s classic blue balloon series, stainless steel. The size should be 36mm. Coincidentally, Prince William’s mother, Princess Diana, also wore her own Cartier TANK watch when her husband Prince Charles visited New Zealand in 1983.

 The Cartier blue balloon series is the most iconic: the precious metal arc protects the winding crown inlaid with a convex round gem, and the Roman numerals are off-track under the guidance of the crown. Convex curved case, guilloché dial, sword-shaped hands and polished or matte link bracelet.

Zenith Launches The Prestigious Columbus Hurricane Watch

This year, the Zenith watch factory continues to pay tribute to the great navigator Christopher Columbus, using the most exquisite master craftsmanship, such as enamel, engraving and micro-painting, to embellish the time when the maritime precision is reflected. A distinguished collection of Columbus Hurricane Watches. This extraordinary work is limited to ten pieces. It is entirely handmade and is equipped with three major achievements of watchmaking technology: patented gravity control system, sesame refining transmission mechanism and unique high frequency of 36,000 times per hour.

Avant-garde spirit, bravely meet challenges, eager to explore: the famous navigator Christopher Columbus and watchmaker Georges Favor Jecot have the same passion, continue to explore new areas, the former sails, and the westward journey opens up to India. The road by sea, which in 1865 founded Zenith, the first industrial watchmaking factory. A century and a half later, this star-branded brand still adheres to the tradition of pursuing precise timekeeping and continuous innovation, and has more than 300 patents. In 1969, the brand introduced the legendary El Primero automatic movement, which is still the most accurate series production timing movement in the world today. Zenith adheres to the tradition of creating exquisite timepieces (especially worth mentioning, the watch factory has launched countless enamel pocket watches). It has never stopped on the road to pursue the beauty of machinery, condensing the efforts and wisdom of countless skilled craftsmen. The Zenith Prestige Columbus Hurricane Limited Edition was born. This extraordinary timepiece is a challenge for the master of craftsmanship and watchmaking. It is equipped with three breakthrough achievements in the field of watchmaking-patented gravity control system, sesame refining transmission mechanism and unique 36,000 times. / Hour high vibration frequency-based on the integration of gorgeous and stunning enamel painting process and ingenious engraving design, finally this delicately crafted movement is packed into a rose gold case with a diameter of only 45 mm, while ensuring that Does not affect its accuracy and stability. This work is undoubtedly the best manifestation of Zenith’s bold creativity that combines the extraordinary decoration from traditional master craftsmanship with fantasy machinery, making watch collectors and connoisseurs alike.

On the front, Zenith uses the dial side of this watch as a stage to showcase the achievements of watchmaking. With its open design, three new mechanical devices can be seen at a glance: a barrel with a sesame mill drive system ( (Between 10:30 and 1:30)), gyroscope gravity control system and high frequency adjustment mechanism (at 6 o’clock). This highly three-dimensional and technological sense complements the exquisite master craftsmanship inherited from Zenith to this day. Three small gold dials (hour / minute at 12 o’clock, small seconds at 9 o’clock, power reserve indicator at 4 o’clock), beautifully engraved, then decorated with white enamel, blue steel hands and screws Adding to each other’s interest, following the great tradition of watchmaking. The splint is completely carved by hand, and only the embossed Zenith and the stars are retained; then the intaglio part is filled with night blue paint. The balance block of the gravity control system also uses the poetic exquisite decoration, and reproduces the starry sky map of the southern hemisphere by using pure hand micro-drawing technology.

Back, invite you on an adventure

的 The back of the Prestige Columbus Hurricane Grand Sailing Watch represents the adventures of the famous navigator Columbus with gorgeous colors and vivid reliefs, creating perfect details between square inches, which is breathtaking. Skilled artisans who are proficient in master craftsmanship use a delicate and complex gold panel fixed to the movement to complete a veritable micro-painting. The mechanical components on the first layer of foreground patterns outline marine instruments and hand-engraved Columbus portraits, as well as the astronomical instrument sextant used to calculate latitude. On the second layer of foreground graphics is Columbus’s flagship Santa María when he sailed for the first time in 1492. The hand-decorated micro-engraving pattern is subtle and subtle, even the sail rigging and ropes are clearly legible. The sails decorated with filigree enamel bear the famous Red Cross pattern, and one of them is cleverly decorated with Zenith stars, making collectors who know the history of the brand smile. The gear bridge behind the hull is used to represent the ocean. It is engraved with a small wave pattern and coated with a translucent lacquer. The clockwork box bridge in the background is more profound, and the sky changes day and night with a micro-painting. It is worth mentioning that the watchmaking masters of the watchmaking factory ingeniously use the movement structure to reflect the sunrise and sunset with a carefully decorated pinion, which is clever. And this exquisite decoration requires craftsmen to select fixing points for the applique components on the movement and minimize the thickness of the movement and the space between the movement and the decoration (the space between the sails is less than one tenth of a millimeter) . The exquisite decoration on the prestigious Columbus Hurricane Grand Nautical Watch is completely completed by skilled craftsmen with both hands, making each watch unique and worthy of collection.

The ultimate pursuit of precision ‘core’

If Columbus is brave enough to push the boundaries of space, this watch with the same name uses three mechanical mechanisms to ensure precise timing to break through the limitations of time measurement: a high-frequency tuning device (36,000 vibrations / hour) can measure Accurate to one-tenth of a second; Sesame Refined transmission system can maintain stable power output during power storage, while gravity control system can offset the adverse effect of gravity on the watch’s travel time. In other words, this watch fundamentally solves the problems of wearing and running time, ensuring precise timing. This extraordinary movement consists of a total of 939 components, of which 354 are part of the movement, 173 are gravity control module components, and 585 are sesame mill components.

Segment transmission system ensures balanced power

When the power of a mechanical watch weakens, the vibration swing of its movement will become smaller, which will affect the accuracy of the watch’s travel time. On the contrary, with the power transmission system of sesame seeds, the power of the watch will remain stable during the power reserve period, because the device can offset the effect of the gradual reduction of the power of the barrel.

Most of the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth century pocket watches were equipped with sesame seeds to regulate the power transmitted to the gear set. However, watchmaking factories that can fit this device into a square inch of space with a diameter of only 45 mm are rare. Zenith, after two years of research and development, has finally succeeded in producing a sesame refinery transmission system suitable for the prestigious Columbus Hurricane Grand Sailing Watch, and has entered the ranks of a handful of high-end watchmakers.

Between the winder barrel and the pagoda wheel, a 585-piece sesame mill with a length of 18 cm ensures transmission. The sesame refining structure is extremely precise and complex, consisting of a double refining section and an intermediate refining section. The sliver bars installed in the watch can withstand more than 3 kg of pulling force.

During the entire power reserve process, the power spring transmits energy to the pagoda wheel through the smelting bar curled around the barrel. The Pagoda Wheel obtains balanced power by correcting the tension error and distributes it to the gear set and the silicon escape wheel located in the gyroscope frame. The barrel is smelted by a very attractive method of smelting, and it takes 50 hours (the process of power reserve release) for the smelt to gradually wind up around the barrel. Subsequently, the pagoda wheel and the barrel were turned counterclockwise within a few seconds so that the smelt could be wound tightly around the pagoda wheel again. The shape of the pagoda wheel is carefully designed by Zenith watchmakers to maximize power transmission to the barrel. The grooved pagoda wheel is like an animal horn, and the groove size is skillfully calculated in the seven steps of the production process. It would not have been possible for the Sesame Refined Transmission System to come to fruition without the cooperation of all process departments of Zenith Watchmaking (especially the movement sample department) and the use of precision equipment. This is also one of the advantages of the integrated watch factory.

Gravity Control: Challenge the Law of Gravity

The prestigious Columbus Hurricane Grand Nautical Watch offsets the isochronous (equivalent to the swing time) error with the sesame refining transmission system, and also eliminates another adverse effect that affects the movement of mechanical watches: the effect of gravity.

Keeping the adjustment device in the horizontal position can make the oscillating weight have the best possible swing amplitude, thus bringing the best travel time accuracy. Based on this principle, Zenith designed a new and revolutionary patented module, the gravity control system, to keep the adjustment device and escapement system in the horizontal position for the best performance.

This avant-garde design gravity control system is not only a manifestation of the boldness of the watch factory, but also draws inspiration from the maritime precision timepieces made by the watch factory in the past and pays tribute to the glorious history of the watch factory. This mechanism draws inspiration from the nautical compass that came out in the sixteenth century and borrows its suspension design to maintain the horizontal position no matter how bumpy the ship is. The gravity control system is equipped with a gyroscope automatic adjustment mechanism. No matter how the wearer’s wrist moves, the adjustment mechanism always maintains the horizontal position, which is similar to the sailing timepiece. Zenith is currently the only watch factory to master this design, and won the first prize in the complication watch category of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in 2011. This design took five years. To develop results.

Unique watch box

超 An extraordinary work, with a unique watch box. The Prestige Columbus Hurricane Watch is equipped with a precious mahogany box decorated with cow bone inlays. It can also be used to collect 80 cigars. Decorated with a parchment-style papyrus silk screen motif, it reproduces the first map of Waldzemuller (1507) with the name ‘America’ ​​(America), a tribute to Columbus.

Zhen Lishi condenses the glorious history of the Great Nautical Age between the delicate and delicate squares, combines bold creativity with original spirit and fun and childlike innocence, conquering a new field with this limited series that combines high-end watchmaking and master craftsmanship.

Amazing Work Of Ghost Axe Tasting Lange-saxony Triple Split Watch

Lange is famous for its unparalleled superb technology and high level of perfect craftsmanship. It is good at unique complex functions and delicate polishing. At the Geneva Watch Fair this year, Lange again launched a new model-TripleSplit. This watch is the world’s first mechanical chronograph that can perform 12-hour counterclockwise chronograph, breaking the brand’s first accumulated chronograph record of 30 minutes in 2004 with DOUBLESPLIT. This trio of chasing seconds, minutes, and hours is a trio of watch complications. Next, let’s enjoy the Lange-Saxony TripleSplit watch. (Watch model: 424.038)

Amazing masterpiece

 
 
   Prior to this, Lange had introduced the first 30-minute double-tracking watch in the history of mechanical watchmaking, with a recording interval of 30 minutes. Among the many advanced complication functions, in terms of positive interactivity, only the minute repeater function is comparable to the double-tracking hand. This time Lange made it more difficult, and this triple-tracked watch can measure up to 12 hours of extra and comparative time. For the relatively simple double-tracking device, it is not easy for two pointers on the same mandrel to run on top of each other. In the triple-needle follow-up device, the adjustment of the end wheel of the multiple mandrel configuration is exquisite in craftsmanship and patience. When the time measurement is started, all hands move at the same time. After pressing the chase button, the three blue steel hands stop running and display the segment time, and the other hands continue to run. When the push-button is pressed again, the three blue-steel hands will catch up with the running hand and measure the time at the same time. In this chronograph, the three pairs of chronograph hands also have a flyback function, so during the measurement process, as long as you press the chronograph button, you can reset and immediately restart the chronograph, making the operation more convenient.

Watch real shot

 
   The case of this watch is made of 18K white gold, the bezel is polished, and the sides are brushed to a brushed process, presenting a completely different look and feel, exquisite simplicity.

   On the solid silver-gray dial, there is a 30-minute counter at 4 o’clock, a small second at 8 o’clock, and a 12-hour counter at 12 o’clock. The power reserve indicator is located at 6 o’clock below. The board left more room to play, and the whole board looked orderly. The three blue steel chase hands and the rhodium-plated chronograph hands are in sharp contrast. The hour and minute hands have a luminous effect. The design of various small details ensures that the time can be read clearly. This watch combines the precise instantaneous jump-tracking integrated dial and continuous time-tracking time dial to increase the measurement time range of the tracking function by 24 times.

   The 18K white gold crown at 3 o’clock is engraved with the brand logo and features a non-slip texture design for easy adjustment of the watch. On both sides of the crown are timing start, stop and reset buttons, and a chase start and stop button at 10 o’clock for long multi-task timing.

   The hand-stitched crocodile leather strap with 18K white gold pin buckle is engraved with the Lange ‘LANGE’ logo, showing a low-key and mature charm.

   This time the triple-studded watch is equipped with Lange’s own movement L132.1. Through sapphire crystal glass, you can observe the complex chronograph movement, the interaction between gears, levers, hairsprings, clutches and jumpers. The L132.1 calibre adds a complex set of tracking timekeeping linkage system above the balance wheel, which is staggered with the conventional timing system, but this calibre is not simply a stack of functions, but a completely re-developed machine core. The Lange developed and patented split toothing device prevents the loss of amplitude that is usually unavoidable. With this device, the friction force is not affected by the activation of the tracking function.

Summary: The limited edition of the Lange-Saxony Triple Split watch is limited to 100 pieces, and the function of the triple follower is one of the most complicated watches at the Geneva watch exhibition. Although this triple chronograph chronograph watch looks complicated, the design of this watch shows a mature and stable masculinity, and it can still be completed by relying on three buttons in operation. . If you have a watch lover who likes this triple-tracing watch, you can pay more attention.
