Love Donation Ignites Children’s Inspiration Mido Charity Creates Eternal Care

In September 2012, Swiss Mido announced that Mido would launch a campaign of ‘Great Love, No Limits, Love Donations’ and called on friends who would like to dedicate love to children in Tibetan areas of Sichuan to send donated materials to the United States. Chengdu office. After the event was officially launched on September 3, it received strong support and positive response from caring people from all walks of life, and a large number of material resources were continuously sent to the Mido Chengdu office. On September 15, Mido’s staff and volunteers came to the Tibetan area of ​​Sichuan with a full load of donated materials, and presented their children with a loving gift at the Zongke Township Central Primary School in Yangtang County, Aba Prefecture, Sichuan Province.

活动 This event continues the Swiss charity’s consistent charitable commitment. In addition to school supplies and books, donated materials include sports equipment and thick clothing. I believe that these materials will not only allow them to strengthen themselves outside of the intense study, but also allow them to understand the outside world through extracurricular books. They will also be able to spend the winter of 2012 with thick, warm clothes full of love Cold winter.

Zongke Township, Rangtang County, Aba Prefecture, Sichuan Province is located in the southwest of Rangtang County, Sichuan Province. It is 49.5 kilometers away from the county seat. Due to its remote location, there is only a rugged, muddy ‘machine farming road’ connecting the mountains. Summer rain comes Landslides are the norm, and roads are blocked by snow and ice in winter. Due to the scattered living of residents and inconvenient transportation, the local economy is relatively backward and the teaching facilities are relatively primitive. Mido chose Zongke Township Central Elementary School to make a donation. It is also hoped that it can create a wider sky for the children here through its own strength and caring people from all walks of life.

Swiss Mido donated music classrooms, love books library, and love materials donated by all walks of life to this school. Mido hopes to help these innocent and simple children expand their horizons and enrich their extracurricular life. It will be a very meaningful thing. This donation is a continuation of Mido’s philanthropic initiatives. We hope to help children pave the way for spiritual growth by building a music classroom and a love library. ‘
The Amida Charity Action was warmly welcomed by children in Tibet. The children presented white Hada to the staff and volunteers of Mido, and expressed their gratitude in the most honest and sincere way. Due to the lack of teachers, the children here do not have the opportunity to take art classes. To this end, Mido has specially prepared an interesting art class for them. In class, the children used their imagination to add their own creativity to the inspirational buildings of the Swiss Mido, and the colored pens in their hands added more bright colors to the Mido-inspired buildings. Mido also hopes that the children will study hard and go out of the mountains to see the beautiful buildings on the pictures and realize their dreams.
Swiss Mido focuses on philanthropy, actively fulfills its social responsibilities, and uses its own actions to repay the trust and support of society. In many years of charitable activities, Mido has always taken philanthropy as a long-term work and insisted on fulfilling its charitable commitments. Just as Mido’s brand motto “Inspiration creates eternity”, Mido firmly believes that love will also create eternity!
About Swiss Mido
In 1918, the experienced and talented master watchmaker George Sharon founded the Swiss Mido in Zurich, Switzerland. Its name comes from the Spanish ‘Yo mido’, which means ‘I measure’. Mido aims to make a watch that perfectly combines practical functions with unlimited value. MIDO entered China for the first time in 1938, when it was called ‘meter’. In 2000, MIDO entered China again under the name of ‘Meitu’ under the SWATCH Group.
The real design is more resistant to the flow of time than the current trend. Swiss Mido draws inspiration from classic architecture, and interprets the philosophy of time and space art together with the architecture, and wears eternal architecture with inspiration and creativity on people’s wrists: from the Great Wall of China to the landmark building of New York, from the ancient The Colosseum from Rome to the Arcade of Emmanuel II in Milan, from the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the Rennes Opera House in France to the Eiffel Tower … Medieval designed the Great Wall, Bruna, Perfect, Berencelli, helmsman, commander and other series of watches, they all have a classic design to accurately interpret the ‘inspired to create eternity’ brand motto.
强调 While emphasizing timeless design, Mido is also one of the first choice brands of Swiss official observatory certified watches. For nearly a century since its birth, Mido has always insisted on manufacturing 100% Swiss-made watches with high-quality materials, precise movements, excellent waterproof performance, and long-term ownership.
Swiss Mido is no longer a mechanical product that simply records time, but a symbol of taste, a timeless interpretation.

Bulgari’s New Finissimo Tourbillon Watch Real Shooting Appreciation

Thin timepieces have always been pursued and respected by watchmakers. Today, starting with the introduction of Octo’s Finissimo tourbillon, BVLGARI Bulgari marks a new milestone in the development of ultra-thin, ultra-complex watches: a 1.95 mm thickness movement makes the running tourbillon the most slim and unique on the market The thinnest tourbillon ever.

 There are countless elegant ultra-thin watches in the history of watchmaking. The tourbillon in ultra-thin watches is the representative of complex watches. As a member of the Octo family, Octo’s Finissimo tourbillon embodies the creative talents of Italy and the superb skills of Swiss watchmaking, and integrates many unique and innovative inventions.

 Its movement is thinner than a Swiss franc coin. Since the beginning of the creation, the design has incorporated a number of ingenuity to reduce the overall thickness-the thickness of the tourbillon frame, which is the decisive factor in the production process, is only 1.95 mm. The combination of the frame and the base plate of the movement determines the thickness of the entire movement. The entire movement architecture consists of two splints: one for the minute hand and one for the tourbillon frame wheel train that makes one revolution per minute.

 In developing the thinnest tourbillon movement, watchmakers have used a variety of solutions to achieve this. The first is ball bearings using rotating parts: 7 ball bearings are usually mounted on the basic movement, and the tourbillon frame has a shell-type rolling bearing to make it rotatable. The last ball bearing allows the escape wheel to rotate around it. The second is the elimination of the governing component group, because the timing is adjusted directly on the balance wheel, which also helps the movement to become thinner. The barrel is in place and guided by its adjacent 3 ball bearings. This solution doubled the height of the spring, thus achieving a power reserve of nearly 55 hours.

In a nutshell, the precision of the Finissimo tourbillon illustrates once again the infinite possibilities of mechanical innovation. The Finissimo tourbillon has 249 parts, and its finish and final combination show its unparalleled perfection: the base plate and the splint are chamfered and decorated with Geneva waves; the gears are chamfered and the screw heads are polished Both the groove and the groove are also chamfered, and the ends are polished. The hour and minute hands on the black dial are lacquered and polished, simple and elegant, embedded in a platinum case with a diameter of 40 mm and fitted with a black alligator leather strap with a platinum buckle. There is no doubt that the Octo Finissimo tourbillon represents a major step forward in the pursuit of ultra-thin and complex watchmaking technology.
 The above watch home brings the cutting-edge information of Bulgari watches at the 2014 Basel watch exhibition. For more details about the 2014 Basel watch exhibition, please pay attention to our special report webpage.

Earl And Dali Cross-border Cooperation ‘dali D’ Or’ Golden Magic Kingdom

Piaget, Switzerland’s top watch and jewellery brand, is both a famous watchmaker and a jewellery master. The talent and soul of dual skills allow Piaget to wander between traditional culture and the two fields created by innovation. Create successful masterpieces that perfectly blend the two. Piaget’s arrogant craftsmanship technology is reflected in its continuous and uninterrupted innovation of ancient skills, and its precious gold and jewels condense people’s hearts and stir magical art forms. The endless creative design makes Its artistic creation is fascinating and timeless.
  Piaget is the first brand to integrate professional watchmaking with jewellery, and the first dreamer to believe that “wristwatch is jewelry, and jewelry can also be a watch.” Piaget views “time” from a different perspective. And through various forms to stimulate the infinite possibilities of creation. Piaget is willing to challenge the norms, and to continuously create and enhance the artistic value of the work. In the 1960s, Piaget broke the established image attitude and shared the passion for creativity with the artist Salvador Dali, casting a series of ‘Dali d’Or’ works. It also pushed the popularity of Piaget brand to the peak of creative abundance. This series is currently part of the collection at the Geneva headquarters. This cross-border art creation will be airlifted to Taiwan for the first time from 6 / 16-9 / 30 this year, and this year’s most watched ‘Crazy Dali-Surrealist Master Special’ ‘Exhibition’, cross-border exhibition at the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, a sight for watch fans and art lovers.
Piaget’s first air shipment to Taiwan ‘Dali d’ Or’ series presented brilliantly
  This year’s most watched ‘Crazy Dali-Surrealist Masters Special Exhibition’ will feature many well-known large-scale sculptures, as well as many brilliant cross-border performances such as gold jewelry, movies, furniture … Piaget was invited to exhibit the classic art work ‘Dali d’Or’ series. It will also plan an independent exhibition area.

  Piaget’s ‘Dali d’Or’ series originated in the 1950s. Piaget broke the barrier of watch thickness and influenced watchmaking creativity, and successively launched the first ultra-thin movement 9P with a thickness of only 2 mm, and only 2.3 mm. The thinnest automatic mechanical movement 12P ever. Until 1967, the new ‘currency’ created by the surreal magician Salvador Dali, ‘Dali d’Or’, inspired the imagination of Piaget to challenge cross-border creation.
  Dali used four gold coins of different sizes and currency values ​​to create a variety of crazy imaginations at 5 Mao, 1 Yuan, 2 Yuan, and 5 Yuan. The front face of the gold coin has the famous beard outline of this crazy artist. It is inseparable from it. It is his creative inspiration, his wife Gala. The back of the gold coin is engraved with ‘egg’. Dali painting The periodic symbol in represents a world that is just in its incubation period, and an imagination that symbolizes the future world.
  Piaget and Dali shared their passion for creativity, and successively created a series of works including watches, pocket watches, bracelets, cufflinks, etc. with ‘Dali d’Or’ gold coins cast by Dali, from 900/1000 ‘Dali d’Or’ gold coins made of pure gold are issued in limited editions and are engraved with independent limited edition numbers. Piaget not only introduced unprecedented luxury into the traditional watchmaking industry, causing a wave of excitement.

Elegant Masterpiece 97sk.6.394.21 Skeleton Watch

The Emperor was a watchmaking factory founded in 1860 by the watchmaker Jaude Didison from Alsace, France, in the small town of Saint-Elia in the valley of the watchmaking sanctuary, and later the watch factory Relocated to Dallashoed, Switzerland, where it flourished, until 1910 the emperor officially became a registered trademark in the field of watchmaking and jewelry supply. In its 146-year watchmaking history, Zunhuang brand has continuously pursued breakthroughs. Its long history has made it rich in cultural value and exuded the noble temperament that has been refined by the times.
 Elegant 9 series watches, as the name suggests, are indeed very elegant. All the models are almost simple in appearance and simple in design, but the materials used, the details of the processing and the use of the movement are not simple. Therefore it is considered a low-key aristocracy.
However, as mentioned above, the models of this series are almost simple. Yes, it also has a very special style, that is, the 97SK.6.394.21 skeleton watch.

The Zhuanghuang Elegant 9 Series 97SK.6.394.21 watch continues the simple style of the series, but also breaks through the series’ ‘closed’ dial.
This watch from Zunhuang uses rose gold to create the entire watch, not only the case, but also the crown, buckle and movement components. The materials are full, which is also the tradition that Zunhuang has always used only precious metals in the elegant 9 series. Each watch under the elegant 9 series uses gold materials to highlight the high-end line of the series.
The 41 mm diameter is not that big, it is a size suitable for most men’s wear. In the 36 mm dial diameter space inside, the operation of the machine seems to be at ease.
The hands on the dial are very classic, and the blued-steel hands on the top of the hollowed-out arrow design are very expressive and elegant.
Of course, in addition to these, what should really be appreciated is the hollow design. The beauty of hollowing out is like a person telling you the truth, it reveals everything, waiting for you to appreciate and listen. Hollowing needs to remove all the excess parts of the traditional splint that may block the view, which is very time consuming. At the same time, the structure and layout of the movement must be considered, so these will be designed in advance, and then outline the outline, and then the excess Partial culling. After these steps are over, the most important thing is to polish each part as carefully as possible in order to present the best results.
In addition to the beauty of craftsmanship, full hollowing can fully present the mechanical structure in front of the user’s eyes. This is a kind of self-confidence and a challenge. Any imperfection in details may be seen through by experts, so hollowing out requires not only technology but also courage.

 The movement is the core of a watch. There is no doubt that to understand a watch, the most important thing is to understand its movement. The Zhuanghuang Elegant 9 series 97SK.6.394.21 watch uses the brand-made CAL.16 1/2 2698-2 movement. This movement has a diameter of 36 mm and is a relatively large movement. For 3hz, it is okay. The 46-hour power reserve is unavoidable. After all, the manual-winding movement only has a power reserve of less than two days, which means that it needs to be wound every day. This is a common one for most people. It’s more troublesome, and of course it will be fun for absolute fans of watches.
Apart from this, the hollowed-out movement is a work of art worthy of appreciation. Regardless of which angle you look at, the Emperor will not let you feast your eyes, because it basically has few blind spots. In addition, the hollow design allows the watch friends to pass from the winding to the mainspring energy storage to the gear to the escapement, and finally the whole process is clear at a glance, showing the wonderfulness of the mechanical origin to the greatest extent. The Zunhuang brand is a brand full of aristocracy, and its models show a subtle temperament in a simple and low-key style, but low-key never means being ignored. In many cases, it will be a flash point. Zunhuang Watch is such a style, it is subtle and unpretentious, but the taste is so compelling.
The Respected and Elegant 9 Series 97SK.6.394.21 watch uses the noble and elegant rose gold as the material to set the high-end and elegant tone of the table below, and presents the beauty of machinery and art with full hollow, which is a particularly prominent one in the series. The shape of the hands and the internal structure are modeled after a pocket watch produced by the Emperor in the 1920s. This pocket watch can be said to be the representative of a few minimalist hollow-out watches at that time, showing the unique beauty of strength.

Glashütte Pilots’ World Watch Pays Tribute To The Adventurer’s Adventurous Spirit

Glashutte Original, adhering to the traditional German manual watchmaking process, each Glashutte watch is a unique work of art, conveying noble taste. The Glashütte Pilot’s World Time is a tribute to the adventurous explorers and their adventurous spirit. The Pilot’s World Time watch looks the same as the other models of the 20th century vintage series.

Watches were one of the most important tools for pilots of the time. The primary requirement for a watch designed for pilots is its size, which must be able to be worn outside a heavy flight jacket. Second, it must be highly legible, easy to read day and night. Of course, the accuracy of the travel time is also very important.

The Glashütte Navigator World View watch has a rotatable ring marked with the world city name, which can easily define the time in different time zones. The oversized hour markers provide ideal legibility, and Glashütte’s proud calendar window is located at 6 o’clock, giving the wearer complete control of the world.

Glashütte Pilot’s World Time watch, sapphire crystal case back reveals the beauty of the 39-47 movement, 21K gold skeleton pendulum, gooseneck trimmer and finely polished Glashütte 3/4 splint, giving you a visual Enjoyment is also an example of Glashütte’s fine watchmaking skills. The appearance is consistent with the style of other watches of the 20th century vintage series.

As one of the world’s leading high-end mechanical watch brands with 100% self-made movements in its entire range of watches, the blood of Glashutte Original originates from a German watchmaking town with a history of 165 years Glashutte. Glashütte Aviator World Time Watch, put it on and let you go adventure together.

Causes Of Time Errors In Certina Watches

Certina mechanical watches on the market. Due to the structural characteristics of the mainspring, the material, the friction and fatigue between the coils, the change in the output torque from strong to weak, and the friction generated by the mainspring and gears during the transmission of the force distance, all will affect the accuracy of the clock. In addition, the climate, regional environment, and location also have an impact on the normal operation of the Certina clockwork. The current quartz clock overcomes the weakness of mechanical watches, uses the extremely stable high-frequency vibration of quartz crystals as the time reference, and divides the frequency by a frequency-dividing circuit to once per second, and then drives the gear through a micro-stepping motor or scanning , Pointer, indicating time, even so, because the quartz crystal used is affected by temperature changes, errors will occur, usually 15 seconds per day. This is allowed.
为什么 Why is the Certina mechanical watch not electronically calibrated, and what is the error? The daily error of Certina quartz electronic watch is less than 0.5 seconds, which is one tenth of that of Certina mechanical watch. This is mainly due to the high and stable oscillation frequency of quartz oscillator in quartz watch. The principle of high frequency and accurate time is a principle found in the long-term study of how to improve the accuracy of timepieces. The higher the frequency of the oscillator, the more stable the oscillation, the stronger the anti-interference ability, and the more accurate the watch. The oscillation frequency of Certina quartz electronic watch is 32768Hz, which is 10,000 times higher than the frequency of 3Hz per second of ordinary fast pendulum mechanical watches. Therefore, quartz electronic watches are much more accurate than Certina mechanical watches. In addition, due to the structural problems of mechanical Certina watches, due to the gravitational force of the earth, the horizontal and vertical positions will produce a disparity. The spring is tightened to loosened, and the torque is unbalanced. The impact of vibration, etc., even if the mechanical watch raises some frequencies, it is impossible to reach the accuracy of the quartz electronic watch. Certina watches that are always within minutes are virtually non-existent. There is an error range for both mechanical and stone watches, and this range varies from country to country. Generally speaking, as long as the mechanical watch is full Under the circumstances, the travel time is not more than 30 seconds per day, and the standard is basically up to 30 seconds. The quartz watch meets the standard when the battery is fully charged and the speed is not more than 0.5 seconds. Therefore, whether it is a Certina mechanical watch or a Certina quartz watch, as long as their error is within the above two standard ranges, we can say that the watch is qualified to run. On the contrary, it indicates that the Certina watch has a problem when it is gone, and it must be adjusted by the repair and maintenance department.

The Most Representative Creation Does Bulgari’s Design Really Have A Secret?

In the past, I was impressed by Bvlgari’s gorgeous jewellery as bold, unique and eclectic, but now facing the Bvlgari watch series, I can’t help but make people better and better. Shocked. For a brand that has to design its own shell and core chain, whether it is a requirement for details, a requirement for craftsmanship, or even a subversion of style, Bvlgari has fully integrated its own DNA, each subtle The design never relaxes. One word to describe Bulgari’s watchmaking is very suitable, and that is ‘obsessive-compulsive disorder’. This kind of ‘obsessive-compulsive disorder’ that seeks perfection, seeks breakthrough, and is different is exactly the vitality of the brand and the reason why the world is crowned in its crown.

  To understand a professional watchmaking process, it is necessary to understand how rich and powerful a brand’s hardware is. BVLGARI Bvlgari watches currently have more than 350 professional staff, these professional staff is the unique backup resources of Bulgari. They work hard at four different locations in the Jurassic Mountains to produce a variety of watch accessories. Several production bases have the most sophisticated traditions and the most sophisticated technology: the production of complex function tables (Grandecomplication) and ultra-thin Finissimo movements, The production and assembly of the Solotempo calibre Le Santier; the production of gold and stainless steel cases and straps by Sénio Legier; all high-end hands are completed in La Chaux-de-Fonds, and the assembly and final quality control are in Production hub-Neuchâtel completed. Below, let us go into the design of Bulgari together, mainly to understand the case and bracelet of Bulgari.


  Case, the most representative creation:

  The most intuitive part of a watch is the dial and case. The production of top dials requires craftsmanship based on rich experience. The watchmaking plant in Sénélegier is responsible for the manufacture of dials, cases and straps. Here, a series of highly professional technologies have not only realized reorganization, but also gradually achieved innocence in practice. This base also adheres to strict production standards in order to produce Bulgari’s most unique and unique watch. No matter whether it is controlled by a computer or a purely manual method, each work has its own characteristics.

  One: octagonal case
  Here, we have to mention GeraldCharlesGenta, who is the most prominent Swiss watch designer in contemporary times. His design talent has earned him the reputation of Picasso, and he has a talent for clock creation, creating a series of highly representative Sexual watches, from Patek Philippe’s Nautilus, Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak to IWC, eventually established independent brands named after themselves. In 1999, Bulgari acquired the Zunda brand and officially incorporated it into its own product line in 2010, which also injected fresh blood into Bulgari.

The angular and angular case always attracts the eye at first glance. The case of the Octo watch has very typical characteristics in the brand. It is neither round nor square, but perfects two geometric shapes. Combined to create the most recognizable octagonal design, constructing the omnipresent and geometrical aesthetics of the round place, the octagonal structure of the watch and the round bezel complement each other, showing boldness in the pure classic art tradition at the same time And delicate style. This stunning architectural aesthetic style is derived from Master Zunda.
  Zunda’s watch for Bulgari was inspired by ancient Roman coins, with inscriptions chanting its power and prestige surrounding the portrait of the emperor on the coin. These small, round masterpieces were invented in ancient Greece in the 6th century BC and successfully integrated function with delicate aesthetic elements. Zunda applied this design element to the bezel of the watch. The two ‘Bulgari’ carvings it contains are the source of the watch’s name.

  Bulgari’s classic representative work-the BVLGARIBVLGARI series of watches, was born in 1977, the official release of the BVLGARIBVLGARI series of watches, Bvlgari is truly entered the watch market. The cylindrical shape of the case was also influenced by ancient Rome, especially the Roman temple temple columns. In the new ‘BVLGARI’ logo on the bezel, ‘V’ replaces the ‘U’ in the classic Roman inscription, which is not only more simple and profound, but also a direct declaration of the brand’s image and potential value.

Bracelet, pioneering masterpiece:

  For ordinary watches, the bracelet seems to be just an icing on the cake. Everyone’s attention will focus on the more prominent features or dials. Taking a simple detail, many watches have different metal links, such as the usual three-piece, four-piece, and Rolex’s extensible bracelet. However, for the special link of Bvlgari, It wants to make every detail unique, as is the bracelet. Different bracelets, showing different styles, are really memorable.

  One: Serpentine Link:
For the first time in 2015, the bracelet of the new Serpenti series watch abandoned the traditional internal spring, which makes the watch more flexible and flexible, which can meet the daily collocation needs and highlight the infinite design creativity of Bulgari. The opening and closing of the bracelet is equipped with double pressure buttons to ensure safety while maintaining elegance. The length of the bracelet can be adjusted at will to bring the ultimate comfort to the wearer.

  In addition, the side and back of each bracelet and curved case of each Serpenti series watch are exquisitely hollowed out. The light can be penetrated to the maximum extent, which makes the gems set on the watch bloom more brightly. Guanghua.

  This Serpenti series rose gold watch comes from the new product in 2015. If the style can be fixed, you don’t need to worry about the fixed design, because the brand will make greater innovation and design based on the original every time. Let the original style release more vitality. The highlight of this watch is that the surface of the red lacquer watch is specially treated: the translucent lacquer has been manually colored and air-dried several times, and finally condenses into fine crystals, making its bright colors fuller and more eye-catching. The hand-made metal stripe pattern makes the unique lacquer look gorgeous. It takes two full days to paint the lacquered surface of a bracelet, and then it is manually sanded and polished by skilled craftsmen.

  No. 2: V-shaped chain link
  The footsteps of time symbolize new life, hope, and eternity, and time also brings new design inspiration to Bulgari. The new LVCEA gives us a completely new interpretation from the case, dial, crown, and bracelet. It has a very strong brand characteristic. Even if it can’t recognize its series at a glance, it can be sure that it comes from Bvlgari.

  The design inspiration of a watch is abstract, and when it becomes a work in reality, it will feel like it is so real. Light inspiration and classic shapes are created in every detail of the watch. The design of LVCEA is a tribute to the ancient sundial of the timepiece, symbolizing the power of capturing light (‘luce’ in Italian means ‘light’). The case of LVCEA is shiny and round, which implies the passage of time; the round shape of the case also symbolizes unity, highlighting the dial decorated with Roman numerals and hands, which looks like a sundial.

  The unique V-shaped chain link design conceals the V in the LVCEA name, and is also a light inspiration from the Serpenti series. This shape is extremely architectural tension, so we have also constructed different shapes on the case, crown and crown. Trapezoidal shape. The bracelet itself contains more than 100 independent parts. It consists of 5 tapered links and 2 adjustable links. In fact, the links connected to the case are also inclined. At the same time, for the first time, the bracelet does not use a spring leaf inside, but simply links each link, which is completely different from the Serpenti series.
  The charm of the watch is that any seemingly small change condenses the huge changes behind it, and constantly sets new challenges for the brand, from design to sketch, from production to assembly, interlocking.

Summary: A heart-warming watch, first of all, must catch your eyeballs at the first time, assured of your peace of mind; secondly, if it is a watch that can’t be played or appreciated, its beauty will not fade with time. , On the contrary, it will become more and more intense. In the end, the watch must meet the wearer. Maybe it belongs to a certain brand. However, after you have it, it belongs only to you and becomes an eternal acquaintance and companion in your life. Continue to inherit … (Li Shuai, home of the picture / text watch)

Swiss Plum Watch Sponsors Chinese Chess Masters To Play In Switzerland

The prestigious chess festival kicked off in Biel, Switzerland, at the end of July 2011. The chess festival with a history of more than 40 years brings together chess elites from all over the world. Among them, two outstanding chess masters from China-Bu Xiangzhi and Ni Hua, were sponsored by the famous Swiss watch company TITONI. Participated in this year’s competition. Bu Xiangzhi and Ni Hua ranked third and fourth respectively in China’s chess rankings.
   Ni Hua from Shanghai said that this is his first visit to Switzerland and he also visited the headquarters of Plum Blossom. Headquartered in the town of Greenken, not far from Bill, he smiled after the visit: ‘What impressed me most was the fresh air there, and there were far fewer pedestrians on the street than in China.’ On the contrary, Bu Xiangzhi from Qingdao arrived Been to Switzerland many times. Both masters thank Plum Blossoms for sponsoring their trip to Europe. Although the two chess masters are already very famous in China, they still hope to accumulate more experience in the fiercely competitive international competitions to improve their skills. Chess has not been included in the Olympics so far, and its awareness is not as high as other sports, but they are confident that this sport will become more and more popular in China. Chess differs from Chinese chess in many ways. It only became popular after China’s reform and opening up in the 1980s. To this day, thousands of Chinese chess players have been trained in this area. I believe that Chinese chess players will become stronger and stronger in the international chess arena.
   Ni Hua and Bu Xiangzhi came into contact with chess at the age of six and eight. When asked about the tips for success, Ni Hua, the captain of the national team, pointed out that in addition to talent, the most important thing is hard work and continuous practice every day. In addition to the frequent discussions between the two masters, they will also use computer simulation games to practice. In their free time, they like to play football, badminton and basketball.
   As for the internationally renowned watch brand of plum watch, two Chinese chess players have heard of its success story a long time ago. When visiting the headquarters of Plum Watch, they showed great interest in the history and management methods of this traditional family watchmaking company. What surprised them most was the brand’s rigorous watch making process, the accuracy of the watch and the Attention to the application of science and technology. Probably because their specialty is closely related to time control, both masters have raised many questions related to watch functions and quality control. At the end of the visit, Plum Watch presented two Master Series watches as gifts and a letter to Switzerland.

Montblanc Viller Collection

    Ten years later, Montblanc teamed up with Minerva SA, a small traditional Swiss watchmaker based in Villeret, to create the Institute Minerva de Recherche en Haute Horlogerie. . The history of Montblanc Villeret dates back to 1858. With its outstanding hand-made movements, especially precision chronographs, it has quickly become one of Switzerland’s most acclaimed professional watchmakers.

    After the development of the first chronograph movement for watches in the 1920s, in the early 1950s a milestone in fine watchmaking was created-the legendary Minerva Pythagore. With the establishment of the Villeret Watchmaking Workshop, Montblanc’s watchmaking skills have been improved, and the countless high-end achievements in watchmaking have continuously inspired the watchmakers at Montblanc Villeret Watch Factory, relying on the accumulated experience of Menela Professional timekeeping technology, while promoting the traditional Swiss watchmaking technology, introduces new ideas and injects vitality into the Swiss watchmaking industry.

    Montblanc’s fine watchmaking is based on the unique architecture of the perfect collaboration between the two watch factories to jointly create timepieces that reflect the highest Swiss watchmaking standards and the most innovative homemade movements: The essence of traditional craftsmanship, following the diligent pursuit of excellent watchmaking skills for 158 years, has now become Montblanc’s movement and innovation research and development center, dedicated to the research and development, design and assembly of the main movement; Reno Watchmaking Workshop will The perfect fusion of traditional watchmaking norms and advanced technology has become Montblanc’s watch and centre of excellence. Hundreds of years of knowledge and hundreds of hours of dedicated work can give birth to Montblanc timepieces. In order to create the most precise and perfect masterpieces, the watchmakers at Montblanc Reno and Villeret have pride and spirit into each timepiece, sharing the high-end system with the future owners of Montblanc timepieces. The surging passion of the watch.

Patented external tourbillon movement

    The exclusive patented complex device for the external tourbillon was completely developed by the Montblanc watchmaker and was first introduced in 2010. The word ‘Exo’ is derived from the Greek word meaning ‘outside’ or ‘outside’, which means that the screw balance is placed outside the tourbillon rotation frame. This patented innovative mechanical structure makes the rotating frame smaller in size and does not need to load the weight of the balance wheel, so it can save more than 30% of energy compared with the traditional tourbillon. At the same time, because the balance wheel is placed outside the rotating frame, it means that it can be protected from the inertia of the frame, which further improves the accuracy.

    Montblanc’s patented external tourbillon movement also contains a high-performance stop-second device. The micro-spring directly stops the screw balance, allowing the wearer to accurately adjust the second hand. The stop-second device can immediately stop the balance wheel in the tourbillon, instead of just rotating the frame, so as to prevent the ‘back swing’ phenomenon of the balance wheel when the tourbillon frame stops and avoid affecting the accuracy. The tourbillon frame is provided with a red arrow pointer, which reads the seconds on the corresponding scale at the opening of the tourbillon dial for accurate adjustment of the second hand.

    To celebrate the 110th anniversary of the brand and commemorate the golden age that gave birth to it, Montblanc launched three complex functions independently developed by the brand in 2016-the external tourbillon stop-second movement MB 29.21, and the dual-fly chronograph movement MB. LL100.1 and World Time MB 29.20, and launched a number of new tourbillon watches that continue the precision and outstanding performance of Montblanc timepieces. Among them, the Montblanc 4810 series external tourbillon ultra-thin 110th anniversary model uses the MB 29.24 self-made movement decorated with a fan-shaped “Geneva ripple” micro-oscillating device for the first time. The lens, this patent-made movement can be seen at a glance. The external tourbillon ultra-thin watch of the same 4810 series is equipped with the MB 29.21 self-made movement with a thickness of only 4.5 mm, showing the extraordinary quality of complex craftsmanship.

500 hours quality test

    Reliability, precision and durability are the three main criteria for evaluating the performance of advanced mechanical watches. Since the beginning of production, the watchmakers at Montblanc Reno have made every effort to ensure that all parts of each watch meet these three standards. Excellent quality. Therefore, the Montblanc Reno watch factory quality team developed and implemented a set of rigorous and highly targeted high-intensity tests, the ‘Montblanc Lab 500-hour quality test’, which simulates the first year of use of the watch, Including daily wear and tear, various settings and resetting of the crown, daily use of all functions in different weather conditions, etc.
