German’s Reinterpretation Of Lange’s First Watch With Decimal Minute Repeater

The annual watch event, the Geneva International Watch Fair, has been opened. The watch team’s special front report team has begun to work, and they will bring you the latest, fastest and most comprehensive watch fair reports. Now let’s take a look at the big picture of Lange’s latest watch launched at the Geneva Watch Fair.

Lange’s first timepiece
   Lange unveiled the ZEITWERK series of minute repeaters. This ingeniously designed watch combines mechanical skipping display and decimal minute repeater. It was Lange’s first timepiece, ten minutes.

Word jump display is particularly eye-catching
   The time of the watch is not displayed by hands, but by means of an hour circle and two minute dials. The three worm gears connected to these mechanical display elements will extract the timekeeping numbers corresponding to the hours, ten minutes and minutes, respectively. ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER with clear skipping display is a design example and is particularly eye-catching. Small seconds at 6 o’clock. The 12 o’clock position is equipped with a power display indicating that the beeping device will not start when the power reserve is less than twelve hours.

Equipped with L043.5 homemade movement
   Equipped with the L043.5 self-made movement, it is carefully modified by hand. The balance wheel, eccentric weight and self-made cardless hairspring under the hand-carved balance wheel splint vibrate 18,800 times per hour. This beeping chronograph is made of platinum 950 and has a diameter of 44.2 mm. The solid silver dial exudes silver-gray light. The time bridge, made of black rhodium-plated German silver, surrounds the hour and minute digital windows on the same plane. Black polished steel hammers are neatly arranged on both sides of the small seconds dial. On the left is the clock, and on the right is the one-minute minute. And every ten minutes, the two hammers will ring the gong at the same time, making two sounds.

Summary: The five-day Geneva Haute Horlogerie exhibition presents us with a unique visual feast, and we look forward to the report group in front of the Watch House bringing us more Wonderful content.

Earl Tourbillon Shanghai Appreciation Exhibition

Recently, the Piaget Tourbillon Appreciation Exhibition was held in a specialty store at 798 Huaihai Road, Shanghai. Piaget Watches brings the most representative of the brand tourbillon family to Chinese watch lovers for the first time. Watch models, priced from more than 1 million to more than 30 million. ‘The tourbillon is a complex function that is most widely accepted by Chinese people. ‘The general manager of Piaget Watch China, Ma Wenxing, said,’ Compared with perpetual calendar and other complex functions, it is more ornamental. & rdquo;
一项 This innovative mechanical mechanism, created at the end of the 18th century, was created to counteract the timing error caused by gravity to pocket watches. When worn, old pocket watches were often bundled in their pockets in a vertical ground state. The balance spring was restrained by unidirectional gravitational force for a long time, which affected the concentric isochronism of the contraction. The tourbillon is a balance wheel and escapement system that controls the accuracy of time. It is placed in a set of rotating frames propelled by transmission gears. During the rotation process, the gravitational force is dispersed throughout the hairspring to offset the system against the gravity. Function to improve the accuracy of travel time. However, because the tourbillon structure needs to be built with a large number of parts in a limited space, it must be adjusted repeatedly before and after assembly, making it extremely time-consuming and labor-intensive.
Although Piaget’s ‘jewellery watch’ is well-known, in fact, from the founder of Piaget founder Georges Edouard Piaget in 1874 to the establishment of a watch studio in La Cote-aux-F & eacute; es, now the new Plan-les-Ouates factory in Geneva, Piaget has never stopped exploring the complex function movement represented by the tourbillon. Piaget set the world record for ultra-thin movements with 9P hand-wound movements and 12P self-winding movements in the 1950s. Since then, ultra-thin movements have become the most recognizable tradition of Piaget characterization. In 2002, after more than three years of research and development, Piaget introduced a self-made 600P bracelet tourbillon movement that dazzled the watch industry. The thickness of the movement is only 3.5 mm, making it the thinnest rectangular tourbillon movement in history. . This ultra-thin tourbillon also makes it possible to set enough diamonds on the watch.
最高 The highest unit price on the site is the 32 million Piaget Emperador series 18K white gold full-diamond tourbillon watch, the only one in the world, which is equipped with a 600P bracelet tourbillon movement. The dial and frame are embellished with 1,211 fine diamonds, including a 3.35-carat emerald-cut diamond that weighs approximately 96.98 carats.
In 2006, Piaget introduced the most special complex function work. ‘Compared with Tourbillon Watches’, equipped with the 608P flying tourbillon manual winding movement developed by Piaget, revolutionized the titanium tourbillon frame It is placed on the end of the minute hand, and rotates once every minute. With the regular rotation of the minute hand on the dial, the revolutions are synchronized. A Piaget Polo series 18K white gold enamel painted relative tourbillon watch (New York theme) is displayed on the scene. The faceplate shows the 12 tallest building outlines in New York. Each building pattern is engraved with the building name by hand, and the best hand Over 190 man-hours to complete the face making. The three-point position on the side of the case is decorated with a close-up silhouette of the Statue of Liberty in New York. The winding crown is set with a single diamond in the central gold frame, which represents the symbol of the torch held by the statue. At nine o’clock on the side of the case, Manhattan Island and its two main bridges (Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge) are engraved on both sides. Limited to 3 pieces worldwide, priced at more than 4.68 million.
