The Ballon Bleu de Cartier dual time zone and double jumper tourbillon watch is composed of a minute hand at the center and two time jumper dials showing the time of the destination and the place of departure. Its shape is like one The calibrator, its birth marks a new breakthrough in the development and production of travel timepieces. This extraordinary masterpiece engraved with the ‘Poinçon de Genève’ is a fusion of fine craftsmanship and complex structure, showing a well-balanced beauty. Its transparent appearance design can let experienced watch lovers enjoy it. Ingenious and constantly working mechanical structure.
The ‘golden ratio’ rule has long influenced people’s aesthetics. And this universally accepted rule has always emphasized that beauty comes from the proportion of the overall proportion. The Ballon Bleu de Cartier dual time zone double jumper tourbillon watch has exactly the symmetrical overall shape and elegant appearance design. It is designed and manufactured in the baht scale. This piece will fully show the beauty of harmony in a conflict. come out. The purpose of this concept is to focus people’s visual focus on the main structure of watches such as the time-lapse chronograph, which can make people more intuitively read the two time information displayed by the double jump hand The realization of this is exactly the original intention of this watch.
Two independently running blue hands can display the time in two time zones at the same time, which will obviously make people wonder about this century’s large-diameter dial. This watch is made according to the style of a pocket watch, but its exquisite shape design seems to have some magic, which makes people unconsciously ignore its 46mm case diameter. Not only that, the shoulder The line design can also perfectly fit the wrist curve, which makes this masterpiece more impeccable. For art enthusiasts who are passionate about exotic treasures, watersports and precision mechanics, it is made of rose gold and white gold with a crocodile leather strap. It is limited to 50 Ballon Bleu de Cartier dual time zones. The double-jump tourbillon watch is enough to impress them.
Before wearing it, first put the Ballon Bleu de Cartier dual time zone and double jumper tourbillon watch on the palm of your hand, observe the front and back sides, and then you will find that the movement with the ‘Geneva Quality Seal’ engraved on it is like a movement A three-dimensional ‘moving sculpture’ is presented in front of the eyes. The shape of this watch is nearly perfect. It is a ‘fruitful fruit’ that combines the design concepts of mechanical technicians and watchmakers. The watch is equipped with a Cartier 9456 MC type work adjusted by a floating tourbillon. The hand-winding mechanical movement is refined, and the frame of the tourbillon is slightly raised in order to connect with the dual time zone jumping device. This design is inspired by the shape of the initial ‘C’ of the Cartier brand.
The movement of this watch has an independent number. Through the exquisite and sculpted dial, you can admire its unparalleled symmetrical structure, some of the exquisite parts with retrograde function, and can make two independent readings jump The hour hand accurately displays two time values simultaneously. The first hour hand can be adjusted by a winding crown embedded on the side of the case. This blued hand runs on a large chronograph dial with Roman numerals, which clearly shows the departure time. The second hour hand can be adjusted by the button at the ten o’clock position on the shoulder. This hand shows the local time of the watch wearer.
This watch has a rare and charming temperament in its unique modular complex structure. For art lovers who like long-distance travel, its practicality is not to be underestimated. Those who are keen on precision mechanics can look through the opening of the dial and spend an entire hour to observe the slow translation of its internal lever, and this translation process drives the jumping of the hour hand. After 60 minutes of non-stop operation, the movement of these levers is almost unnoticeable. As a result, the energy consumption of its internal components becomes minimal, so that it will not affect the accuracy of the adjustment mechanism.
However, the development and creation of any mechanical device is indispensable. Take this very creative work, for example, its ‘bright flower’ comes from the crisp sound produced by the light touch of its internal parts. This sound will only appear once every full hour and only lasts every time. In a fraction of a second, it has become a target sought after by precision machinery enthusiasts. In fact, this sound comes from the operation of two levers, each connected to a spiral spring, and once it reaches the end, it will release itself. Within the elastic range of the mainspring, both levers can achieve retrograde operation at the same time, you can return to the starting position and restart the operation in an instant. During their operation, with the use of internally assembled retractable pawls, these two levers, which are respectively fixed on the 12-tooth star gear, can catch one of the gear teeth on the gear. In that moment, the movement of the two levers can cause the two gears to rotate one-twelfth of a circle at the same time, and the rotation of the gears drives the movement of the two hour hands. They can display the local time and departure on their respective time dials. Ground time.
Summary: In the above, I used the term ‘bright flower’ to describe this watch. The words can be said to express the beauty of appreciation in agility. As a super complicated watch, it should give people a sense of complexity and timeliness. Thick, but on the contrary, this watch gives us a softer sense of intimacy. Whether it is the design of the shape or the use of materials, it has completed a perfect breakthrough in another sense.
