Chanel Launches New Boy · Friend Series Watches Boy · Friend Tweed

Tweed

   Initially, Ms. Chanel re-cut and stitched men’s clothing for her own use. Later, she began to design a series of ideal clothing for women who are as passionate about outdoor activities as sports, travel, and driving.

   In the 1920s, she subverted the dress code at that time, and boldly used jersey and tweed fabrics to design women’s clothing on the premise of comfort.

   ‘The clothes are not as good as they are. The clothes I often wear most make me feel at ease, but they must not be thick and rough fabrics … definitely not! In fact, I taught the Scots how to weave light twill. Dare to convince them that it is not easy! ‘1
These tweeds then had an indelible influence on her design vocabulary. Tweed is an abrasion-resistant fabric made from carded wool and is native to Scotland. In her eyes, this kind of woolen fabric hand-knitted by the residents of the Highlands of Scotland has a unique quality: carded wool is soft and fluffy, unlike combed fabrics, which can maintain its ‘slightly grainy’ natural appearance. Desirable. Ms. Chanel is particularly fond of wool that has not been washed excessively and retains its original softness. She was even proud to be able to identify the tweeds that had been rinsed in the Tweed River.

   Today, for the first time, Chanel presents the tweed texture on the stainless steel strap of the BOY • FRIEND series.

BOY · FRIEND TWEED S

   The carved strap woven from fine steel wire demonstrates Chanel’s superb watchmaking technology: in order to highlight the rich layer of tweed fabric, the fine texture is accurately and deeply pressed on the strap; at the same time, the strap is maintained Excellent flexibility to ensure comfort when worn. It can take months to make such a strap perfect.

   Thanks to the craftsmanship of the craftsman, the edge of the strap combines the design elements of knitting and piping, highlighting the outline of the TWEED strap. This is exactly the same as the knit design of the edge of the pockets and cuffs of the Chanel jacket.

   The BOY · FRIEND TWEED watch and other models in the same series have an octagonal folding clasp that echoes the outline of the Paris Fontaine.

Quartz Movement Can Also Make Sense Of Luxury

The high-end quartz movement has finally raised its eyebrows in the past two years. Under the circumstances that Longines, CITIZEN and GRAND SEIKO brands have launched powerful products, and after repeated communication, consumers have finally begun to reduce their hostility to quartz. In spite of this, sales have certainly produced good results, even in discussions among players. Also revealed more and more interest and friendliness in high-priced quartz watches.

Cal. 9F82

Quartz / hour, minute, second, date / 9 stone / vibration frequency 32,768vps / annual difference ± 10 seconds, instantaneous day-to-day, dual pulse control motor, second hand rebound correction mechanism, super airtight structure, independent splint for each axis
As the only brand that continues to develop high-quality quartz, GS benefits from this development, but at the same time it has emerged from many competitors. In terms of the main selling point of high-quality quartz, the specifications of GS’s 9F movement are The difference is ± 10 seconds. Compared to the Longines VHP, which made a comeback in 2017, it has an annual difference of ± 5 seconds. In 2018, CITIZEN even released the concept movement Cal. 0100 of ± 1 second, which should make GS feel threatened, however When the author took this to ask the engineers of their watch factory, they thought that although these brands each introduced some interesting things, the 9F should still be the best among them in terms of the performance of the needle.
Here they mentioned a very important concept: ‘advanced’ quartz is not just ‘high precision’ quartz. The so-called advanced should include many other aspects besides accuracy, such as the stability of pointer operation and date switching Speed ​​and so on, these will also affect the user’s wearing experience, which determines the “advanced” feeling. Looking back at the development process of 9F, you will find that they did spend a lot of details beyond accuracy, so when they face You can still maintain full confidence when facing this challenge.

The method of 9F driving the second hand is to release the power twice in one second, and push the pointer to move half a division at a time, which means that it uses twice the power to move the pointer through one division.

GS returned to the market in the form of a quartz watch in 1988. At the time, the 95GS was introduced with an accuracy of ± 10 seconds. For quartz movements with an annual difference of ± 5 seconds, the accuracy is not too much of a problem for them, but the 95GS has been picked out for its appearance, because the quartz movement at the time was too weak to push the heavy The large pointer, so the 95GS is equipped with a slim body style. The problem is that an important feature of the GS in the 1960s is the high-weight Dove needles. The taste of the fine needles after modification is always worse, and this is the point. It became the main weakness of 95GS criticized by players.
In order to improve this, Seiko once again learned from their past research and development results. In fact, Seiko only produced a powerful 7C movement in 1986. At that time, this movement was designed for a 1,000-meter water-resistant catfish diving watch. It is to promote the large luminous hands necessary for diving watches, so the motor torque of the movement is strong, which just solves the problem faced by the new GS. So Seiko integrated the powerful output of 7C and the original grade accuracy. Introduced the first exclusive movement 9F83 of Hyundai GS, which opened a brand new chapter for the history of GRAND SEIKO and even quartz movement.
The powerful torque of the double pulse motor
The powerful torque of 9F comes from its ‘double pulse control motor’. Generally, the quartz movement drives the second hand to release the power once per second, and push the hand to go one division at a time. In the case of 9F, the power is released twice per second. The hand moves half a grid, which means that it uses twice the power to move the hand through one grid. Through this mechanism, the movement can drive the GS ‘wide Douven needle. Today, even ordinary quartz movements can push large hands and even moon phase disks, but even if GS developed such technology 25 years ago, its pioneering work still cannot be ignored.

In order to ensure that the parts are in a dust-free environment and to prevent deterioration of the lubricant, the 9F uses an ultra-airtight structure to seal the entire movement. Only the watchmaker of the main factory can open it.

Aged quartz
The high accuracy of 9F comes mainly from their unique quartz growing method. The quartz used in 9F is produced by the Epson factory of SEIKO from the rough stage. After cutting into the required shape, each piece of quartz will undergo a ‘cure’ for 90 days. During this process, they will be at a temperature of 25 degrees, In a controlled environment with a humidity of 50%, continuous shocks are applied to the quartz, thereby ‘cutting off their fat’, and the performance of each piece of quartz is recorded during the period. Only three months later, only those that meet the standard of ± 10 seconds of annual difference can remain For 9F, if there is more accurate (such as ± 5 seconds), it will be mixed into the product, or it can be selected separately for special styles.
One-to-one temperature control and fine-tuning
Temperature is the main factor that causes the accuracy of quartz movements to fluctuate. Each piece of quartz on 9F will record their habit, and then write these characteristics one by one into the respective IC of each movement. The customized method is matched with a low-power temperature monitoring system 540 times a day to achieve the temperature control of the movement. In addition, the 9F also has a rare fast and slow adjustment device for quartz movement. It can adjust the speed of the movement by rotating the fine adjustment screw according to his environment and habits after long-term wearing. Fine-tuning is performed to personalize and optimize precision.
Backlash adjustment mechanism and transient jump day
When jumping to the second, the second hand tends to shake when it encounters the longer and thinner second hand. This kind of shake comes from the play gap that must exist between the gear teeth that mesh with each other. In order to suppress this situation, 9F is added at the end of the wheel train With a hairspring, the elasticity of the hairspring is used to keep the gap between the gear teeth tight, thereby reducing the jitter of the second hand. The instant switching of the date requires a lot of power, so few quartz movements are used. In contrast, a 9F roller car (hour hand wheel) will spend 18 hours a day to accumulate energy for the spring that drives the day change. Wait until midnight Release of breath, through this mechanism to achieve 1/2000 seconds of instant jump day.

Ordinary calibres, small carts and second wheel collars may interfere with each other, so 9F adds sleeves between the shafts to allow them to operate independently.

3-axis to 4-axis independent structure
In order to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the 9F, the GS launched the first time of the two-time function 9F86 in the series in 2018. 9F originally had a so-called independent shaft structure, because the common movement of the barrel, small barrel and second wheel collar The frictional force of direct contact with each other may cause mutual interference, so 9F added sleeves between the shafts to allow them to operate completely independently. 9F86 has more GMT needles, and the structure of the independent axis has also changed from three axes (hours, minutes, seconds) to four axes. These sleeves are integrally formed with the splint, and the processing of the plate is extremely precise. This can be seen from this point Of high quality.

Precise And Timeless Art: Jaeger-lecoultre Atmos Classique 560 Rhodiumclassic Air Clock

Da Vinci has stated that according to the laws of physics, ‘eternal movement’ can never exist. Nevertheless, for centuries, researchers have not lightly given up the mechanism of pursuing constant motion. In 1928, Jaeger-LeCoultre set out to develop and produce the air clock invented by Jean-Leon Ruetter, which truly realized the ancient dream of mankind in pursuit of eternal movement. Air clocks rely on subtle temperature changes to get the power they need to run forever.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos Classique 560 Rhodium air-plated rhodium-plated metal case with dimensions of 200 x 155 x 225 mm, hour and minute display, Jaeger-LeCoultre 560 Perpetual Mechanical Movement, hand-made and assembled, ring balance The swing period is 120 times an hour, with a blue lacquered face plate, model Q5102208.
   The Atmos air clock is both complicated and wonderful. It is almost constant and requires a constant operating environment. It seems to have life. The 48-hour kinetic energy depends on only one degree of temperature difference. The secret of the operation of the air clock is that a sealed cover is filled with mixed mercury vapor, and the gas expands and contracts due to temperature rise and decrease, thereby driving the clock for the mainspring. Each degree of temperature change can provide power for 48 hours of operation.

The Atmos Classique classic clock is equipped with a Jaeger-LeCoultre 560 permanent-moving mechanical movement. It is handmade and assembled. Its ring balance swings 120 times an hour. It has 15 ruby ​​bearings and contains 207 parts.
   Because the power required by the air clock is very thin, the extra energy consumption is excluded as much as possible in the design, and the movement is almost never consumed. Take the balance wheel as an example, its pulsation is only two times per minute, which is sixty times slower than that of an ordinary clock. If we add up the energy of 60 million clocks, we can barely light up a 15-watt electric bulb. The energy required for an air clock is very small, so we can see a class.

   The structure of Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos air clock came out more than 80 years ago, and after continuous improvement, it is still a revolutionary creation today. Through cooperation with contemporary artists or drawing inspiration from classic works of art, the practical eternal kinetic energy is even more important. Provide a new look for the world.

Ebel Yubao Duo Punches-news Ebel

1911 TEKTON Automatic Chronograph Ajax Amsterdam uses Ebel Ebel Calibre 245 Observatory certified movement, which is specially designed for football enthusiasts, with forty-five minutes indication and referee time indication. Stainless steel case, black engineered fiber strap.
Ebel Ebel has recently appointed a pair of duo to replace Thomas van der Kallen to head the company. They seem to be the two centers determined to score in this noisy game. Loek Oprinsen previously managed the brand’s main markets in northern Europe, and Marc Michel-Amadry was promoted to vice president of marketing to co-CEO of the brand. Oprinsen is responsible for operations and sales, while Michel-Amadry will be responsible for design and marketing.
‘This is an original way to share pressure,’ said Marc Michel-Amadry. ‘By forming a team, we have the most favorable chance of success, especially in the current economic environment.’ For Ebel Ebel, currently The situation is very difficult because his parent company, Movado, trusts the troubled American market. The group has already restructured and applied for a layoff program in Switzerland. The group announced the temporary dismissal of 25 people in Switzerland, six of whom were Ebel Ebel employees. (In addition to the Ebel Ebel brand, the group also owns the Movado and Concord emperor brands, as well as a series of licensed production brands.) But for Amadry, Ebel Ebel is ‘completely committed to watchmaking’, so He was spared the worst, (in mid-December, Switzerland is said to have cut a total of sixty positions). And now this two-person group has begun to act. Their strategy is to return to the foundation of time art. The above is the detailed plan of van der Kallen.
Eleven new models
Eleven new watches were launched in BaselWorld, lower than previous records, as Amadry explained, ‘We don’t want to fill our retailer’s warehouse, we just want to provide them with some practical Something. One of our goals at BaselWorld is to understand how much inventory our retailers around the world can absorb. ‘
Our aggressive strategy focuses on price. For example, the entry-level version of the Ebel Ebel classic mechanical movement steel version will start at CHF 3,900. Another strategy is about competitiveness. A new Chrono Exagon with a gorgeous one-piece key case and Dubois-DÉpraz movement. The hours of the stopwatch are displayed on an active chip. The watch is priced at less than 5,000 Swiss francs.
Ebel Ebel focuses on men’s watches, which account for 35 percent of sales. At this year’s show, the brand will launch his most interesting new models, such as a classic and unique flyback date hexagon watch in a rose gold case.
The Tekton series has become significantly more sporty. The newly added member is a powerful Tekton Chrono with the Ebel Ebel 137 movement inside. This is designed for Europe-Ajax, Olympique Lyonnais, and Real Madrid. There is also a special Tekton designed by the football club. He does not have a bezel, but instead uses a sapphire crystal instead of the bezel to fix the case with left and right cross threads. The waterproof function is achieved by a sealing ring hidden under a circular metal bar on the glass. This watch is very architectural, reminiscent of a large open-air football field. Now it’s up to the new team to score fast.

Unforgettable At A Glance Six Special Indicators Of ‘arrogant’

For most people, time is watched by time, but when you raise your wrist to watch time, how many people have paid attention to the design of the hands? The movement of the pointer drives the focus point of the eyes. Each brand’s pointer has its own characteristics, and even some brands of pointers will be firmly memorized by watch fans. The design of the pointer should be exquisite and smart, not affect the time, but also beautiful. . In the previous article, we introduced Breguet’s hollow eccentric ‘moon-shaped’ pointer, Vacheron Constantin’s crown princess needle, Rolex’s lightning pointer, Omega seahorse’s bee pointer and IWC pilot’s flight pointer. The editor below introduces some Seemingly familiar pointer.

  Audemars Piguet: the classic church pin
  Church pin, called CATHEDRALE in French, is commonly used in Sven or square watches. This is the clock hands from the European Gothic church bell tower. Beginning in the 12th century, the ancient Romanesque architecture, which symbolized the absolute authority of religious status, no longer appealed to the church, and was replaced by Gothic architecture characterized by tall, straight, and pointed buildings. For a time, the church’s minaret, which was endowed with the divine spirit, blossomed all over Western Europe.

  At present, the vertical pendant of various church-shaped pointers in watches is inconclusive, high or low; the rhombuses are also different in size. The flat 90-degree positive rhombus is the most plump basic shape, and there is also an acute angle of about 75 degrees. diamond. Because of the rich sense of history and humanity conveyed by church pins, many vintage watches or commemorative watches have chosen church pins. Audemars Piguet’s traditional ultra-thin watch uses a square pillow-shaped rose gold case. The gold Arabic numerals on the dial and the gold church hands inherit the design of an antique watch, which is dazzling and not flamboyant. Also loved by church needles is Longines, whose Beja watches are also favored by many women for their elegant appearance.

  Girard Perregaux: romantic willow-shaped hollow hands
  Girard Perregaux CAT’SEYE series ladies watches show the noble and elegant feminine beauty. 18K rose gold creates smooth lines. The dial design not only highlights the center but also implies a sense of layering. At twelve o’clock, there is a moon phase display window. The deep night sky is dotted with bright stars, and the retrograde seconds hand and retrograde weekday retrograde display under the dial bring a static and dynamic visual contrast. The willow-shaped hour and minute hands are decorated with hollow, which is more chic and delicate, which is also different from the retrograde hand. Under the embellishment of the diamond, the hollowed-out hands are even more elegant, and every detail is inseparable from the overall design.

  White silk strap with 18K rose gold folding buckle, stylish and beautiful. The watch is designed with a sapphire crystal glass back and is equipped with an internal GP03390 self-winding movement, which provides a 46-hour power reserve when fully wound.
  Rolex: The Mercedes Benz Needle
  Although Greenwich watches are specifically designed for professional use, their unparalleled functionality and design make them popular with tourists at the same time. In addition to the time display in different time zones, Greenwich’s sturdy material and easy-to-match appearance are not only suitable for wearing around the world, but also suitable for any occasion.

  The ‘Benz’ style logo on the hands is easy to fill with more luminous paint, making the reading in diving and night clear, and the Mercedes-Benz hand has become a classic. Although some brands have tried Mercedes-Benz needles since then, people still think of Rolex’s famous ‘Water Ghost’ when they see Mercedes-Benz needles. In fact, whether it is a Mercedes-Benz owner or a Rolex watch owner, it is basically correct to use the word ‘courage to explore’.

  In addition to the traditional hour, minute and second hands, the Greenwich II is equipped with a separate 24-hour hand and a 24-hour progressive two-way rotating graduated bezel. The 24-hour hand shows the reference time in the first time zone (such as the time of residence), and the hour can be read on the outer scale.

  Omega: Tough Arrow Needle
  The arrow-shaped pointer has a very obvious sign, a striking triangular arrow at the needle head, and the watch hand as a whole arrow. The hands are large enough to be bold, and they are mostly used in military watches and diving watches. Can be filled with luminous paint, very practical. Omega’s hippocampus series is a typical example of sticking arrows. Some arrow-shaped needles will be made into a hollow effect, see through the chassis color, and highlight the sense of fashion. Due to the eye-catching indication, it is also often used as a special hand, such as a 24-hour hand.

  The Omega Seamaster GoodPlanetGMT watch is equipped with a blue dial and hour markers. The wide hour and minute hands lead the dial. The bright orange aluminum GMT hands enable the wearer to record time in dual time zones. The polished blue two-way rotating bezel is equipped with a bright orange GMT scale. The case is equipped with a helium exhaust valve at 10 o’clock and a calendar window at 3 o’clock. A 44 mm stainless steel case with a bracelet of the same material is equipped with an Omega 8605 coaxial movement.

  Panerai: minimalist pins

  Stick pins are simple in design, beautiful in appearance and easy to identify. The craftsmanship is not as complicated as vintage Breguet needles and rosette needles, and it is easy to mass-produce. Therefore, they are widely used by many prominent and practical watch brands. Simple and straight, straight rod-shaped pointers with slightly wider needles make it easy to fill with various luminous paints. This is the common point of these pointers. Many brands will also make some changes to the rod pointer. For example, only the pointer tip is filled with luminous paint, or a hollow effect is made to highlight the sporty fashion sense, so that the sturdy and simple rod-shaped pointer has a masculine taste, and also has some design sense.

 Panerai LuminorMarina series watches have the classic design elements of Panerai, highlighting the tough navy temperament. The number 9 position is a simple small second. This design reduces the number of gears in the movement transmission system and reduces the thickness of the watch. Black dial with luminous Arabic numerals and signs. The rod-shaped hour and minute hands complement the scale design, capable and simple.

  Tudor: The Creative Snowflake Needle
  The Tudor Heritage BlackBay series 79220R watch has a rare burgundy outer ring that can be rotated in one direction, which makes it easy to think of Rolex’s Cola ring. This watch introduced a blue model in 2014, which is really playful. The shape of the hands is also unique. Such ‘snowflake’ hands are very rare. At the same time, snowflakes are also adorned with the Tudor logo at 12 o’clock. The pointer has a unique oxidation effect, exuding a sense of nostalgia. The black dial has striking hour markers, and each hour marker is coated with a green luminous coating, which can read the time clearly in the dark, so that the time can be seen at a glance.

  In addition, this watch has a water resistance of 200 meters and a screw-in crown to meet the daily waterproofing needs of the wearer. This watch uses the ETA2824 movement, which is also an entry-level movement. This movement has been launched for half a century and has also introduced many extended versions. Many of Tudor’s junior series are using this movement, but the shock absorber and fine-tuning device have been replaced. This is the self-persistence of Tudor Watch Factory.

Summary: Watches and clocks themselves are a delicate mechanical world. Only after careful study will you find the beauty and mystery contained in them. Every discovery will make new discoveries, and maybe a small detail will change the overall style. Do you remember the above ‘high cold and lonely’ pointers? The dial of a watch is like the dashboard of a car. When you face it every day, you will always pay attention to its design. Among different design styles, there is always one that you can love.
