Zenith El Primero 410 Pursue The Footsteps Of The Legend

ZENITH’s latest 410 model watch will surely inspire the majority of watch collectors. This prestigious movement was born in 1969 and is another masterpiece of the legendary El Primero series. It not only has the most accurate automatic timekeeping function in the world, but also deliberately adds a triple calendar display and moon phase display. Time goes by, the classics last. This new watch combines tradition with modernity, both with a dial display that is true to the history of the watch, and a unique modern case design.

 In 1969, when humans landed on the moon for the first time, a small step of one person symbolized a big step for all human beings. In the same year, ZENITH also took an unprecedented step in the field of watches. After seven years of intensive research, ZENITH Watch Factory officially launched the first integrated automatic chronograph in the history with both a date display and scale marks. In addition to this breathtaking and innovative design, this watch also has outstanding precision performance. Its movement has a high vibration frequency of 36,000 beats per hour, which is equivalent to an accuracy of one tenth of a second. Since its founding in 1865, the Zenith watch factory has relied on the bold and innovative spirit to pioneer and move forward. Today, the brand has more than 300 patented designs. However, the ZENITH watch factory did not stop there. It tried to challenge the limits of the art of the watch, embed the three calendar display and moon phase display function into the movement, and turned it into a well-known masterpiece. Was the name of this movement also born in 1969? It was first named El Primero 3019 PHF, and later renamed Caliber 410. This movement is equipped with a column wheel and has a 50-hour power reserve. Like other El Primero movements of the Zenith watch, it is a brand’s iconic work. Until 2000, the 410 movement has withstood the test of time, with its precise and reliable performance, it has confirmed its outstanding quality. But the legend will not leave the stage of history. In 2013, Zenith remade this movement into a limited edition of 500 watches and equipped it with a bright charcoal grey dial.

 El Primero 410 watch

From the 1970s to the 21st century

 Half a century after its introduction, the El Primero 410 movement has undergone several evolutions, leading to a new model named after its name. Today, this new masterpiece will also be part of the legendary El Primero collection. This silver dial watch launched this year references the functional layout of the original model, with every detail exuding a strong 1970s style. The day of the week and month displays are at 10 and 2 o’clock, while the date display is always at 4:30. The moon phase function is located at 6 o’clock. The uniquely shaped display window clearly shows the evolution of the celestial body, and two circular slices cleverly reproduce the dark side of the moon. It will be very easy to show the changes of the moon’s various phases (first quarter moon, full moon, second quarter moon, new moon) through the display window. The wheel with two lunar surfaces is connected to a 59-tooth gear, which is exactly the same as the two lunar periods (2×29.5 days). This watch is a reinterpretation of the moon’s gloom and weakness through this sophisticated and poetic way.

 El Primero 410 movement, while recreating classic style, is also equipped with rare complications. ZENITH uses a clever technique that not only retains the original quality of the iconic works of the last century, but also injects modernity into it, making this watch a truly unique treasure. The 42-mm stainless steel case has a smooth arc-shaped circle. The perfect combination of polished and frosted details design complements each other and highlights modern features. The round stopwatch buttons add a new finishing touch to the look, while the snailed chronograph dial contrasts with the silver sun dial. The cream-colored flange surrounds the graduated markings, and the rhodium-plated hands rotate low-key on the dial to make the reading more clear. The tail of the pure blue chronograph seconds hand is also embellished with a small star ZENITH, which is a symbol of the brand’s distinguished quality and precision chronograph technology. The El Primero 410 watch consists of a total of 390 fine parts. The transparent sapphire crystal case back provides a glimpse of this fascinating mechanical combination. This one-of-a-kind treasure is truly the best expression of ZENITH’s bold innovation spirit. There is nothing more fun than wearing the symbol of time on your wrist?

Montblanc Viller 1858 Series Double Cylindrical Tourbillon Watch

Limited to 1 platinum, 8 to platinum and rose gold each, case diameter 47 mm, equipped with Montblanc-made MB M65.63 hand-wound movement, double-column hairspring, low swing frequency 18000 times / hour , Power reserve 46 hours.

Montblanc Villeret 1858 Series Double Cylindrical Tourbillon Watch
Bi-Cylindrique is translated as a double cylinder. As the name suggests, the radius of each hairspring is the same, unlike traditional hairsprings that expand outward, and have very good concentricity (the center of gravity of the hairspring is consistent with the geometric center as much as possible). Double cylinders have one inside and one outside, but the torque is the same, and they work in the opposite direction, that is, one relaxation and one contraction, which can further strengthen the concentricity and isochronism of the balance spring, and eliminate the deviation of gravity. This device has never appeared in a watch, nor has it been assembled in a tourbillon. It is the latest research result of engineers at Montblanc Villeret.

The complexity of the double cylindrical hairspring is just one of the highlights of this watch
的 The complexity of the double-column hairspring is just one of the highlights of this watch. What I appreciate more is that the designer can open the door of convenience and let people see the ‘mysterious time’ display. Because the biggest difference between a watch and other luxury products is that it can move forever, just like a human heart, life is endless, and motion is endless. What a traditional watch can see is that the hands are running, what is invisible is the balance spring in the movement is oscillating, and the TourbillonBi-Cylindrique mysterious tourbillon watch presents these two parts in the most delicate way for people to enjoy Play and share the magic of creation.

Cartier Enamel Beads Craft Cheetah Decoration Watch Debut 2016 Sihh

From January 18 to January 22, 2016, the 26th Geneva International Haute Horlogerie Salon has officially opened in Geneva, Switzerland. The number of participating brands in the watch exhibition reached an unprecedented 24. , Ralph Lauren withdrew and added 9 independent brands including Christophe claret. The exhibition with such a large line is destined to have unexpected surprises, so please preview it with the editor:

 In this article, we will introduce the new work of the highly watched premium watch brand-Cartier, a watch created by the master of enamel craftsmanship from metal beads.

 The principle of the metal bead process is to make tiny gold beads and decorate them on the chassis. The enamel craftsman uses the same procedure. First, the enamel is cut into small pieces or ground into powder, then stretched into filaments, and then cut into small pieces. After being heated by the welding torch, the filament segments will melt into pellets.

 The bead size depends on the diameter of the enamel filaments. The master craftsman then placed the enamel beads into the chassis according to the color and shape of the artwork. The difficulty of this process is that different colors of enamel have different melting temperatures. It takes more than thirty firings to achieve the ideal effect of firm beads and exquisite enamel.

 This brand new work brings out the outstanding creativity of the Master Craftsmanship workshop. Carving, polishing, enamel, jewellery, gem setting, and watchmaking are combined into one unique work.

Blancpain Supports The Fifth Expedition Of Coelacanth Exploratory Research – ‘exploring The Mediterranean’

In 2019, Blancpain and the brand’s best friend Laurent Ballesta joined hands again to launch the fifth survey project of the Coelacanth Expedition Research Program. The expedition is planned for July this year in the Mediterranean waters off the French coast and will complete a new expedition. This expedition, or the first scientific expedition in history to attempt to combine saturation diving with scuba diving using closed-circuit rebreathers, aims to unravel the mystery of the Mediterranean, which is familiar but still full of mystery.

 
 Marine biologist Lauren Ballesta is also a well-known underwater photographer and pioneer in the use of innovative diving equipment. Since 2012, with the support of Blancpain, he has done his best and actively carried out the scientific research project of ‘Coelacanth Expedition Research’. The project aims to help people deepen their understanding of the deep ocean ecosystems and explore areas where humans have not yet set foot. To date, Ballesta has led his team to complete four expeditionary research missions and carried out extended inspections on parts of the waters of Reunion Island, the Philippines and Polynesia. Therefore, it can be said that Lauren Ballesta has made a huge contribution to Blancpain’s ‘heart-to-ocean’ public welfare undertakings around the world.

 
 Each Coelacanth Expedition Study is dedicated to exploring a scientific puzzle, conducting a diving challenge, and taking some unprecedented photos. The fifth expedition of the Coelacanth Expedition Study is no exception. In order to be able to carry out a series of scientific experimental programs commissioned by the research center in a limited time and clarify the deep ecosystems of the Mediterranean Sea, the Coelacanth Expedition Research team pioneered the phase of saturation diving with scuba diving using closed-circuit respirators. Combined new diving style.

 
 Saturation diving can support professional divers to work in the underwater environment. It works by connecting the diver to the surface through a circulating hose called an ‘umbilical’. This ‘umbilical’ will provide divers with breathing gas, and Make it possible to communicate with each other. In theory, divers using saturation diving have no limit on the time they can work underwater, but their range of movement is limited and they can only move within a few meters of their working area. Scuba diving, as the name suggests, allows divers to move freely, but by contrast, their work time is severely limited. In fact, if you want to spend a few minutes in extremely deep water, you must make decompression stops for up to several hours to prevent any possible diving accidents. The combination of saturation and scuba diving technology allows divers to stop without decompression during the expedition. This also made it possible for a four-day expedition before the end of the expedition. In this way, Lauren Ballesta and his three companions can conduct underwater exploration for up to 8 hours a day and achieve their great goals.

 
 As usual, the fifth expedition of the Coelacanth Expedition Study will also be recorded as a feature-length documentary. In addition, related thematic exhibitions will be organized and written. By 2020, audiences from all over the world will be able to learn about what Lauren Ballesta and her team saw during the expedition through the above three methods. In this era of significant climate change and extinction of species, the discovery of a new and rich area that has not yet been damaged will undoubtedly bring great hope for humanity as a whole.
