The Fusion Of Precious Materials And Cutting-edge Technology Athens Classic Series Anchor Tourbillon Watch

Continuous research and development of self-made movements, development and innovative combination of new materials, and complex function watches have won numerous awards … The pioneering spirit of Athens watches is renowned worldwide. This time, the Athens Anchor Tourbillon Watch (watch model: 1782-133 / E0-60) perfectly combines enamel technology with rose gold, combines classicism and cutting-edge technology, and exhibits an anchor-type constant swing escapement Anchor Escapement).

   Whether in material science or structure, the Athens anchored constant swing escapement is a breakthrough in the traditional mode. It is an escapement that can maintain constant dynamic swing. This device has been in development for eight years and is entirely made of silicon and subverts the principle of traditional horse escapements.

   Athens Watch is always committed to the development of new materials, structures, technologies and so on. It always has amazing performance in the field of fine watchmaking, such as the development of new materials and the development of high-end technology. The anchor tourbillon watch in Athens won the best tourbillon watch award at the 2015 Geneva Watch Awards. Today, it is presented with a bright image of rose gold case and white large fire enamel dial.

   The watch has a 44mm 18K rose gold case with a pure white large enamel dial. On the white dial, the Arabic numerals and minutes are blue, echoing the blue and steel hands at the center of the dial. At 6 o’clock on the dial, there is a tourbillon that makes a full 60-second rotation. It is equipped with a Ulysse Anchor Escapement made of silicon. Above the tourbillon is an arc-shaped power reserve display, which can intuitively understand the watch’s power reserve. The pure and flawless white big fire enamel dial of the watch is precious but not exaggerated, providing a good visual space for the watch’s more important anchor tourbillon device, making the dial’s visual focus focus on the anchor tourbillon.

   The Ulysse Anchor Escapement is entirely made of silicon. Silicon has elasticity. Part of the power of the pallet fork comes from the elasticity of silicon. In this way, the watch is saved to a certain extent. Consumption of power, saving energy.

   The 18K rose gold crown on the right side of the case is exquisite and small, with a non-slip texture on the side, and the Athenian logo on the top blue background.

   The watch is equipped with a blue crocodile leather strap and an 18K rose gold pin buckle, which is comfortable and secure to wear.

   This classic Anchor Tourbillon watch is equipped with a caliber UN.178 manual-wound mechanical movement. This movement was developed in Athens and offers up to 170 hours of power reserve. The watch is water-resistant to 30 meters and is limited to 18 pieces.

   Summary: From the rose gold case to the big fire enamel dial, from the anchor-type constant swing escapement (Ulysse Anchor Escapement) to the combination with the tourbillon, from the use of silicon to the award-winning design, this is everywhere. This watch is an example of the fusion of precious materials and cutting-edge technology in Athens. Limited edition of 18 watches, the official price is 672,000 RMB.

There Is A Basic Explanation About Nomos Maintenance And Problems

With the further increase in the number of NOMOS holdings, many problems followed.
The first is a brief description of various NOMOS failures encountered in the last 5 years.
  1. Regarding the magnetization of NOMOS, among the nearly 2000 NOMOS sold in the castle, the magnetization rate is about 5%. Of course, some customers may not report to me after receiving the information. However, all brands, whether Swiss or German, as long as they are transparent, absolutely no watch is not easily susceptible to magnetism. At present, in our living environment, if we want to find an environment where no charged objects exist at all, we may only go to inaccessible nature.
  Second, the power reserve of NOMOS is insufficient. This problem was encountered by the castle at the end of 2010, and the problems that appeared in 2011 began to peak. The main problem is that the gear transmission efficiency is too low, resulting in power lag and attenuation, and it is difficult to meet the requirements of 36 hours after full chain. Because the specific structure has not been dismantled, this more professional technical question has to be answered by top domestic technicians.
  Third, the automatic power reserve of NOMOS is insufficient. It turned out that he had consulted Ali (a relatively well-known teacher in the forum) about this. It was caused by the short design of the pallet fork. The design defects, and a little carelessness during assembly, led to insufficient power reserve. I have already reflected this to NOMOS manufacturers. Whether or not to improve depends on the attitude of the Germans. Sometimes they always think they are right.
  Fourth, the crown comes off when encountering one, after falling off, water can no longer be repaired. I did not encounter problems such as the back cover falling off.

  In view of the above problems, NOMOS should pay attention to the following issues in the use and maintenance. The castle’s understanding of the watch is not deep enough. If it is not written or described in place, please ask your tablemates to criticize and correct it.
   First, the problem of winding up. The power reserve of NOMOS is between 36-40 hours. Everyone’s habit of winding up and the efficiency of winding up are different. Therefore, it is impossible to describe the winding up accurately. My personal recommendation is that the winding up should be slow and the frequency is basically You can make a lap every second and you can stop when you feel that you can’t move.
   Second, the problem of anti-magnetic. All kinds of charged objects around us, only keep watches and charged objects more than half a meter away. In order to prevent the occurrence of magnetization.
   Third, the problem of waterproofing. NOMOS waterproof is only 30 meters, waterproof in ordinary life, as far as possible to prevent water from seeping into the crown, be careful when using it. Otherwise, the rhodium-plated movement cannot be repaired when it encounters water.
   Fourth, the problem of earthquake resistance. Although the movement of NOMOS has shock absorbers, the shock absorption effect is not as good as KIF shock absorbers, so remember to avoid falling during use.
   Fifth, the maintenance of horse leather strap. For daily maintenance, you can wipe it with leather cleaner first, then wipe the inside of the strap with lemon juice or leather brightener, remove the odor and dry it (do not expose to sunlight), and you can extend the life of some straps.
