2015 Geneva Watch Fair’s Final Highlights

In a blink of an eye, the week-long 25th Geneva Watch & Clock Fair has slowly come to an end. This year’s watch fair once again brought us unlimited surprises and impressions, as if it also heralded The field of haute horlogeries in 2015 will be even more colorful, so let’s take a look at the last few brands of this year’s watch exhibition.
Brand Name: Cartier
Attention Index: ★★★★★★★★★★

   If you say that the model of each watch exhibition, it is definitely not Cartier, it is never stop if you launch more than 100 watches every year, so when you admire Cartier’s new products every year, not only must you have a higher appreciation ability And it is necessary to have sufficient physical strength. It is really because Cartier has too many new watches every year, so the first thing we need to do is to divide these new watches into 4 types, namely high-complex watches; high-jewellery watches; high-complex craft watches and the latest series. Watch.

  Cartier’s most complicated watch this year is this Rotonde series of three questions, tourbillon, perpetual calendar watch, this watch is the most complicated watch ever, equipped with Cartier’s most complicated 9406 MC self-produced movement, Generally speaking, like these three super-complicated watches, we will have a specific name called San Tuo Wan. Some people may ask why there is no specific name for watches superimposed with other functions. Yes, because the three questions, tourbillon, and perpetual calendar are considered to be the three most traditional super complex functions in the watch industry. Before human beings have entered the digital age, let alone the three functions are done together, it is to do them separately. Each of these functions is a very difficult task, so at the time the brand that could combine these three functions, I was not impressed that there would be more than three on the planet, so whether a watch brand could be a Santos million Has become an important criterion for judging whether a brand is a spire brand. Although the symbolic significance of this criterion is greater than its actual significance, it affects like faith Who loves people watch it!

   In the past, whenever we looked at all Cartier’s ultra-complex watches, we always lamented the lack of a three-tornado. Even before, we introduced the extremely complicated single-button tourbillon perpetual calendar chronograph. But I always feel something missing in my heart. Now Cartier not only has his own Santos, but also an automatic Santos. Although the small automatic on the back seems to inevitably make people doubt its winding efficiency, Cartier It should also be regarded as a complete success, but people’s desires are always endless. If you add a double pursuit next year, add a big self-sound in the following year, and add something in the next year. Would n’t we believe that Cartier It can be done!
For details of the watch, please click: After talking about high complexity, let’s take a look at high jewelry. Cartier’s jewelry watch this year can be described as very popular, and this Rêves de Panthères day and night display cheetah decoration watch is even more popular. The three lovely Cartier mascots crouching in the diamond sea and looking up at the starry sky, evoked the romantic feelings in everyone’s heart. This is no wonder that not only female friends are forwarding, but also more and more middle-aged male friends are also forwarding crazy, so men are not unromantic, they just need to wake up!

   One of the important reasons why Cartier’s high jewellery watches this year can be loved by so many people is to change the attitude of the previous high cold, to become peaceful and interesting, and even to interact, when talking about interaction, we must not mention This Ballon de Cartier Serti Vibrant blue balloon ‘Dancing’ high jewelry watch. The 123 diamonds on the dial are not fixedly set on the dial. Instead, each diamond is connected to the dial through a special device, so when you shake When the watch was watched, the 123 diamonds trembled. Because of the diamond’s inherent high reflective properties, when it shakes, it is like turning on the dial to instantly turn on 123 LED lights. It is so dazzling that many people pick it up when Shake constantly and refuse to let go. The reason is that it is too dazzling, thinking that you can turn off the ‘power’ for a few more shakes!
Watch details please click: To say the speed of launching a new series, Cartier is well-deserved No.1, a new watch series will be launched almost every year, it is no exaggeration to say that this year’s new CLÉ (key) series is that This series will make you feel fire at first glance, because its appearance is quite painful. First of all, its case inherits the legacy of the abalone case that was popular in the world in the last century, and it is also made in accordance with the current standards With appropriate adjustments.

   The second is that it has a crown with a very special shape. Although the article on the crown has always been Cartier’s specialty, this time the shape of the crown can definitely be said to subvert people’s physical cognition and all industrial designs. The rule, because no one will design a thing that needs to be rotated frequently. Although its inspiration is derived from the key that winds an antique pocket watch, it is also because of the inconvenience of the key that people are forced to invent the watch. The crown, if the invention of the crown is regarded as a revolution in the history of watches, then people can remember the key while using the crown, it should be regarded as a revolution, because the latter is not as difficult to realize as the former. To achieve the latter, not only must it have the characteristics of the key and the function of guaranteeing the crown itself, but more importantly, both must be taken into account. As long as we think about it, we can imagine how much it needs to face about design, technology, ergonomics, etc. Difficulties in the field.

  In the end, Cartier handed over the key inlaid with sapphire. Looking at the key in front of us, we are amazed not only by Cartier’s extremely strong R & D strength, but also by Cartier’s courage and courage to subvert everything. Finally, by the way, the key series will be available in April this year to meet you. There are 2 men’s watches and 3 women’s watches to choose from, all of which are made of precious metal, and also equipped with a new 1847 MC machine specially launched for this series. Core, I have a hunch that the key will definitely be more popular than the blue balloon.

The watches launched every year are not only full bloom in high school, low end, but also Its high-end models are even more exciting. This year, Montblanc’s top-of-the-line Villeret Cylindrical Tourbillon Dagam limited edition watch once again surprises us. This watch is equipped with the MB M68.40 tourbillon movement. Produced by Minerva, this means that the movement not only has extreme polishing, but also has some legendary functions. This watch has an unprecedented display of the triple time zone and local time in the form of hours and minutes, and has a 6 o’clock position. A three-dimensional, 12-hour compass, as well as a pair of miniature globes embossed to outline the continents, demarcation lines, and 24 time zones around the world, reminding people of Vasco da Gama in 1497. Year Voyage crossed this sea route found in both hemispheres. This watch does not need to be used, just a glance will determine that this is definitely an artifact.
For details of the watch, please click: The latest Montblanc series launched this year is called Chronométrie (Inheritance), but this series is worse than calling it a master. I think it may be because Lamborghé’s love for Jaeger-LeCoultre is so deep that this The shape of the series is obviously a replica of Master Jaeger-LeCoultre.

   Jaeger-LeCoultre
   If you do n’t believe it, you can compare it. The only difference is the Logo and the movement. At present, the low-end models of this series are ETA movements, so it is extremely cost-effective. , Then Montblanc’s heritage series is definitely the most correct choice.

Attention Index: ★★★★★★

  The reason why this year’s SIHH also has a parade of flowers is because Richard Miller launched a flower tourbillon watch numbered 19-02. This watch is quite mysterious. The purple magnolia flower that wraps the tourbillon is not only It blooms every five minutes. The most remarkable thing is that when the flower blooms, the tourbillon, which plays the heart of the flower, can actually rise by 1mm to highlight the blooming beauty. In a watch, the position of the tourbillon can be moved up and down relative to the dial, which has never been done before. No wonder some media self-deprecated that if you wear this watch, you will not be able to concentrate on writing because of its unique performance of five minutes.

Although Jaeger-LeCoultre has not launched any new movements this year, it has also launched many new watches, the most special of which are This is the two-winged three-axis tourbillon moon phase watch. This watch has added a moon phase function that is only one day away in 3887. In addition, the three-dimensional two-axis tourbillon of this watch has an additional shaft, so that it can Perform three-dimensional rotation. In addition to rotating around the titanium frame axis, it can also be rotated around the second rotation axis at a 20-degree tilt. This ingenious design is derived from the Earth’s rotation axis, which points to Polaris Ursa Minor.

   This year’s Geneva watch exhibition Parmigiani’s most eye-catching is not a watch but a table clock. The case of the clock is made of Lalique crystal.

   The Coopers Fuchs astronomical time difference watch is a highlight of this year. It regards astronomical time difference as one of the rarest and most difficult to explain in astronomy. This complex function is directly linked to the perpetual calendar watch. Astronomical time difference can calculate the time difference between the true solar day and the average solar day throughout the year. According to the general calculation method, 24 hours is a day, but the orbit of the earth around the sun is elliptical. As the earth gets closer to the sun, the speed is getting faster and faster. Therefore, the distance between two adjacent high points of the sun The length of the interval, or the length of the solar day, also changes.

   For example, the true solar day is 16 minutes longer than the average solar day in November, but it is 14 minutes shorter than the average solar day in February. The astronomical time difference information is displayed in a simple and unique way on two transparent sapphire crystal glass plates driven by a mechanical calculator on the case back. The two transparent sapphire crystal glass disks rotate independently to show the difference between true solar time and average solar time throughout the year. Display the spring / autumn equinox and winter / summer solstice in a poetic way, but at the same time provide extremely accurate information display.

After reading so many fine watches this year, I have reason to believe that the field of high-end watches in 2015 will be There are many interesting things worth seeing, and many changes that we have not imagined for the time being.

Inheriting The Tradition Of Watchmaking Brief Comment On The Master Geographic Watch Series

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Series conveys the elegant tradition of timepieces. The classic aesthetic design combined with excellent technical performance demonstrates the quality and reliability of the movement developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre. The ‘1000-hour test’ began in 1992, and the technical specifications established in it have now become the standard that every Jaeger-LeCoultre watch must pass. Today, the Watch House brings you a brief review of the Jaeger-LeCoultre MasterGeographic watch series. The official watch model is: Q1422421.

What I bring to you today is the rose gold style, the geographer master series watch. This iconic watch has a multi-time zone display function, presenting the world to the wrist, even taking into account the special characteristics of daylight saving time. .

Watch illustration

 

The watch is made of 18K rose gold with a diameter of 39 mm. The daylight saving time considered by the watch is a system of artificially setting the local time to save energy. The unified time used during the implementation of this system is called ‘summer time’ ‘. Generally, in the early morning and early summer, the time is artificially advanced by one hour, so that people can get up early and go to bed early, reduce the amount of lighting, and make full use of lighting resources, thereby saving lighting electricity.

 

Every Jaeger-LeCoultre watch must pass a rigorous ‘1000-hour test’ program. This test program is unique to Jaeger-LeCoultre and lasted 1000 hours. The test items are comprehensive and rigorous. The “1000HoursControl” mark will be engraved on the bottom of the watch or on the rotor, indicating that this watch has been tested in the Jaeger-LeCoultre laboratory and has successfully passed travel time accuracy, temperature, air pressure, and impact resistance. And anti-magnetic field performance, waterproof performance and other tests, so the sub-model can withstand the ordinary sports encountered in daily life when worn, the ‘1000-hour test’ project far exceeds the official test range prescribed by the Swiss official However, the routine test only involves part of the movement. Jaeger-LeCoultre not only tests the movement before assembly, but also tests the finished watch.

Daylight saving time adjustment requires the watch’s crown at 10 o’clock. First, rotate the crown at 10 o’clock, located in the window at 6 o’clock. Use the triangular pointer to indicate the city name corresponding to your city. Pull the crown out and adjust it for 1 hour. To show the daylight saving time of the control city, push the three-point crown back to the first gear, and slow down the small dial time to synchronize it with the main dial time. that’s it.

 

The dial design of the watch is still quite compact. The watch is provided with a pointer date display at 3 o’clock, the small dial at 6 o’clock is the second time zone display dial, the world time display device is below, and the watch is at 10 o’clock. It is a power reserve display device. It can be seen from the figure that the watch can provide a power reserve of 40 hours after it is fully chained.
