Ovale Pantographe Watch ‘barley Grain’ Decorated Dial Gold Movement

The key to achieving ‘excellence’ lies in ‘precision’: to the least possible degree and second. For this reason, any intentional trace must be removed just to stay in the splendid spectacle of a stunning timepiece.

   The origin of the Ovale Pantographe is widely known. Parmigiani’s watchmaking workshops have created numerous masterpieces of watchmaking craftsmanship, one of which is particularly surprising. This is an oval pocket watch dating back to 1780, equipped with a unique system: the two detents that share a cam cause the hands to perform a telescoping movement. This technological feat inspired further exploration of Parmigiani’s watchmaking and eventually fulfilled this challenge in its own way. This antique pocket watch already has a solution, and Parmigiani’s task is to convert it to the making of the watch. Although this device is very new, it requires more devices because the watch will have various positions throughout the day. The challenge is to consider three points at the same time: the weight of each component, the balance of the entire system, and the reliability of the watch. In addition, the Ovale Pantographe watch reveals another secret: every element in this system is working, so you can’t ‘stiffen’ it, but make it more flexible. The hands of the Ovale Pantographe are designed like this: more than 30 elements are hinged together and move continuously. At present, there is only one material in the world: the manganese-aluminum alloy used in the automotive industry can meet such stringent requirements. If we look at the dial, we feel that the hands are still, but the opposite is true. This is the charm of Ovale Pantographe.
   To further enhance the complex beauty of this balance, Parmigiani equips the watch with a movement entirely made of rose gold. It is a series of works including this watch that enabled Parmigiani to develop unique professional skills. When the watch needs to be processed, the ductility of the gold material becomes a major obstacle. To polish, sculpt and shine on gold, the metal will stick to the tool, which means a completely new process must be used.
   Parmigiani’s Ovale Pantographe dial is embossed with ‘barley grain’, making this already elegant watch even more delicate. Digital time scales abandon the transfer process of the previous representative models, and reappear in our eyes with a gorgeous and gorgeous image. The power reserve dial and large date window at 6 o’clock make the dial more pleasing and harmonious. In addition, the movement of the Ovale Pantographe watch has a power reserve of up to 8 days.

Tour Tourbillon Watch Complications

What’s the use of the tourbillon? I believe that many Xiaobai really don’t know what it is useful for. A friend who knows a little bit will say that the tourbillon is a device to offset the gravity of the watch and increase the accuracy of the watch. Indeed, the tourbillon was invented by Master Breguet in 1795. It was originally to increase the precision of the watch to resist gravity, but now, it is not to increase the precision of the watch. It is because it is cool, because it is cool, because it is complicated, and because it can reflect the complex technology of the watch. Up to now, there is no evidence to prove that the tourbillon can improve the accuracy of the watch. On the contrary, there is a statement that the tourbillon affects the accuracy of the watch. What exactly is it? Today, the watch home will tell you Let me talk about the past and present life of this tourbillon.

   What is a tourbillon? First, I will explain to you that the tourbillon is a device that resists gravity in a watch. The foreign language is called Tourbillon. It was invented by Master Breguet in 1795. After more than 200 years of development, the tourbillon has not changed much. .

   The principle that the tourbillon counteracts gravity is very simple. The most important escapement in the watch movement is placed on a constantly rotating stand, so that it can ensure that the escapement is not always subject to ground. The effect of cardiac gravity reduces errors. Although the principle is simple, it is not so easy to do. If it is really so easy, it will not become one of the three complicated functions of watchmaking today.

Breguet Classic Complex 5335PT / 42 / 9W6 Tourbillon Watch

   The difficulty of making a tourbillon is that it itself is composed of many parts, and itself will be affected by gravity. Therefore, there are strict requirements on the quality of the tourbillon device, otherwise the precision of the watch cannot be achieved. At present, its weight must be controlled within 0.3 grams, which is equivalent to the weight of a swan feather or two parrot feathers. weight.

   In recent years, various brands have made a lot of attempts on the material of tourbillons. Silicon, titanium, blue steel titanium-containing alloys and carbon crystal materials have played a significant role in tourbillon watches. Some of these materials are lighter and more resistant to wear, while others are stronger and more transparent.

   In recent years, the tourbillon has not only changed in material, but also in quantity. There are dual tourbillons and four tourbillon watches, which look really domineering. Tourbillons can be further divided into floating tourbillons, spherical tourbillons, eccentric display tourbillons, and hidden tourbillons. Although the names are different, they are considered to be similar, and the displays are different and irrelevant.

Summary: The tourbillon has the title of the king of the watch. Since its invention, it has always been one of the three most complicated functions. Nowadays, many brands are still committed to the research and development of tourbillon watches. It hasn’t changed, it can only be said that it is a few petty things, and there are no revolutionary updates. (Picture / Text Watch House Chen Zhongyun)

Earl Piaget Contemporary Muse Extreme Charm-news Piaget

Two beautifully stretched asymmetrical lugs extend along the round case, letting people see it at the same time; the rich and full bezel arc is further enhanced by the small and large single-row diamond inlay.

Piaget’s golden path
Under the preference of Gerard Earl and Valentin Earl, the third generation of the brand, gold was alternately sculpted and shaped to create a smooth, unobtrusive, soft, fabric-like chain. Excellent watchmaking material. The two made an important decision together in 1957, using only precious metals to make a watch—namely, polished or diamond-studded gold or platinum—to ensure that the look of the work was as precious as it was inherent. This incomparable brand identity is due to the use of a series of cutting-edge technologies in gold finishing, and has been recognized by the world for its unique skills and delicate expertise.
From clocks to jewelry
The Milanese mesh strap has been carefully adjusted to fit perfectly with the case, and fit perfectly with the bezel and the slender asymmetric lugs studded with diamonds.
