Underwater Legend Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Series Diving Watch

In the 1950s, Jean-Jacques, then CEO of Pore, was passionate about diving
Based on his experience and needs in daily diving, Mr. Fiechter set out to create a reliable, tough and strong diving watch that can accompany him to explore the charming ocean. In 1952, the first modern diving watch was born. This watch was named ‘Fifty Fathoms’. Under the conditions of the air compression technology at that time, the Fifty Fathoms was considered to be the extreme depth that divers can dive.

   At the same time, in the 1950s, two French officers, Colonel Robert Bob Marubier and Lieutenant Claude Rift, were commissioned to create the Frogman Dive Commando, and watches were a must-have for divers. one. They searched the Paris market and tested the diving watches they found, but they were far from meeting their requirements, and the situation was not optimistic. French officer with Jahan-
After Jacques Fichte met in Switzerland, they took their fifty-five watches for testing. The test was extremely successful, and the Fifty Fathoms became the standard equipment of the French Navy.
   In 1953, this Fifty Fathom was released and became the first modern diving watch. Since its birth, it has many leading advantages including safety, reliability, ruggedness, readability, anti-magnetism and aesthetics. It is the founder and founder of modern diving watches.
Fifty Fathoms entered the world stage and became multi-national naval equipment

   The 6-point humidity indicator on the dial is a newly added design in response to the common requirements of France and the US Navy. If moisture penetrates the watch, the small dial at 6 o’clock on the dial will change from blue to red to alert the wearer.
   The requirements of the US Navy for watch specifications and functions were so demanding that no watchmaker in the United States could meet its requirements. At that time, Blancpain could not supply products directly to the US Navy, because one of the latter requirements was that the supplier must be a US-based company. A diamond trader in the United States, Torneck, opened a small test laboratory in the United States so that the watch can be tested and certified in the United States to obtain supplier qualification. Torneck has successfully signed a supply contract with Blancpain. Therefore, the well-known ‘Milspec

   Later, ‘Milspec
The 2 ”version of the Fifty Fathoms was launched. This watch is extremely limited in number and the design purpose requires antimagnetic. This means that the magnetizable materials used in the watch must be reduced to an absolute minimum to avoid its magnetization. Trigger mechanisms such as bombs and torpedoes. Milspec
The second edition of the watch is designed to carry out secret operations. The painted matte case minimizes the risk of reflection, which perfectly fits its mission requirements. This ultimate watch designed for military diving has been called ‘milspec’ by some people. Its production is very limited. Only 780 pieces were produced for the US Navy in 1964. Subsequently, about 300 pieces were produced in 1966 . In the diving watch industry, Blancpain Fifty Fathoms has cooperated with multinational military forces, and is the only modern diving watch that has actually experienced practical tests.
Tried and tested underwater warrior

   Multinational naval installations of Blancpain Fifty Yards include France, the United States, Germany, Spain, Israel, Sweden, Norway, and Finland.

Dio’s New Sapphire Crystal Watch Appreciation

Due to the lack of durable materials that perfectly show Dior’s color series, Les Ateliers Horlogers Dior Studio decided to reinterpret the new Dior Christal watch with sapphire crystal, making this commonly used watch material into decoration Sexual elements: The fashionable cone shape and the brand’s signature colors perfectly decorate the strap and bezel of this series of watches.

 DIORCHRISTAL BLUE

The Dior Christal collection, launched in 2005, is a tribute to Kristin Dior’s coloring talent. The limited edition Dior Christal watches of previous years have always been equipped with precision movements, which contrast with Mr. Dior’s artistic ideas. Launched in 2008, the Dior Christal Tourbillon tourbillon watch has a transparent style that allows you to see the precise structure of the transparent lace-like movement directly from the outside. The Dior Christal Mystrieuse watch launched in 2009 looks like it has no movement from the outside. This is because the movement is hidden under the bezel, exposing only a layer of crystal dial with mother-of-pearl and plated surface. When the hands rotate, The dial is like a kaleidoscope. In 2010, the first Dior 8 Fuseaux Horaires movement was launched, so that the local time, the time of eight international cities, and the day and night indicator hands can be read at the same hour. The dial of Dior Christal showcases dynamic art, reminiscent of those years when Mr. Dior was director of art galleries.

The Dior Christal watch has been improved in 2011 to show more elegant and charming lines and colors: bright red (Kristin Dior calls it ‘the color of life’) and deep purple (the woman’s fashion designer ‘Queen of Colors’).

Vacheron Constantin Heritage Series Carved 14 Days Power Reserve Tourbillon

The 14-day power reserve tourbillon of Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Traditionnelle heritage series embodies the unexpected encounter between tradition and modernity. By combining the complex functions of the tourbillon, which also began in the early 19th century, with openwork and openwork, Vacheron Constantin surpassed traditional watchmaking techniques and launched this extraordinary work with modern charm. The dual three-dimensional effect of this watch is inspired by the movement of the 2260 SQ movement and Gothic inspiration. The exquisite deconstruction lines of each component enhance the depth effect, which is breathtaking.

 Although the first tourbillon appeared in 1801, only a few watchmaking families have the ability to independently develop and manufacture this complex function. There are only a few watchmakers who can engraving art on this, and only a few of them can simultaneously give them power reserve functions of up to 14 days. Vacheron Constantin is one of them.
 Combining a tourbillon with such an amazing power reserve requires a unique construction. The upper part of the Patrimony Traditionnelle engraved 14-day power reserve tourbillon is equipped with four barrels, that is, two pairs of barrels, which are more ‘dense’ than the bottom. Vacheron Constantin’s 2260 SQ movement is a layered structure that eliminates spatial differences and creates a depth effect. The engraving pattern specially designed to enhance the three-dimensional effect reinforces this effect again.

Pursuit of ‘patterned’ modern style
 Engraving craftsmen often engraved the engraving movement along the straight or curved lines of the bridge and the main board. This is a very delicate work. It is necessary to ensure that even if certain materials are removed, the parts still work perfectly and at the same time create a transparent effect. This will expose very small imperfections, so it cannot tolerate the slightest flaw. .

 Vacheron Constantin is constantly looking for new challenges. The 2260 SQ movement breaks the rules and establishes a new path, setting a new milestone in the art of carving. In order to ensure that the carving process echoes the distinctive movement structure, Vacheron Constantin launched a style exploration with the theme of “pattern stacking”. Specific mechanical elements constitute Gothic ribbed vaults, vertical and horizontal straight lines, and deconstructed curves, completely subverting the traditional aesthetic balance. The interaction of light and structure is new, highlighting the three-dimensional structure of the movement; further enhancing the sense of depth and height; the contrast between matte and polishing gives this watch a unique light.

Meticulous workmanship
 Although engraving itself is just a pure aesthetic process, each process of engraving movement is more complicated than the solid movement. . To achieve an ingenious balance between openwork art and practical functions, it takes an average of two months to conceive and mold only two processes, and it takes a long time to decorate, chamfer and carve by hand. All these operations require dexterity and patience. Vacheron Constantin has been outstanding in the art of carving since the brand first produced the first carved balance plywood nearly 260 years ago when the brand was founded. The 2260 SQ movement completely follows this long-established hand-made tradition. The unique layered structure creates more space for surface decoration, so the space for manual craftsmanship is greater. Compared with the solid movement, the chamfering and hand decoration time of each 2260 SQ movement is increased by 10 hours, and the carving time is increased by 40 hours.

Excellent watch certified by the Seal of Geneva
 Vacheron Constantin’s pursuit of superior quality and perfect detail goes far beyond movements. With its fascinating mechanical structure, the 2260 SQ movement is perfectly placed in the precious platinum case, and the case lines are clean and neat. The Patrimony Traditionnelle heritage series carved 14-day power reserve tourbillon discards the central dial and instead uses an elegant rock gray bezel around the inner ring with white gold hour markers. The tourbillon frame at 6 o’clock is inspired by the Maltese cross, and the small second hand is placed on the tourbillon frame.
 From mechanics to appearance, every part of this new Vacheron Constantin watch is perfect. This extraordinary watch has been certified to the highest standards of fine watchmaking and is renowned for its Geneva Seal certification, demonstrating its quality, workmanship and reliability.

The art and technique of carving
 Vacheron Constantin’s timepieces are not only a mechanical boutique with a time display function, but also a perfect work of art, reflecting the unique technical beauty of more than 250 years of history. As early as the founding of the brand in 1755, Vacheron Constantin’s craftsmen skillfully used arts and crafts to add the beauty of watches and clocks. Hand sculpting is one such technique. This challenging craft requires the patience and skill of the master craftsman, which has been used to make extremely lightweight clocks since the brand was founded. The first Vacheron Constantin watch manufactured by Jean-Marc Vacheron in 1755 was already equipped with a carved balance wheel splint. Since then, Vacheron Constantin’s pursuit of transparency has continued to produce more and more sophisticated mechanical parts. By 1924, Vacheron Constantin produced the first solid-engraved movement and mounted it on a pocket watch. Since the 1960s, Vacheron Constantin, as a leader in this extremely complex field, has shown endless creativity, gradually using the engraving process on various complicated movements. Carving craftsmanship combined with other artistic craftsmanship shows the miniature miracles of clockmaking on various pocket watches and watches.
 Watchmaker that can apply engraving technology to complex functions such as three questions, perpetual calendar and tourbillon, but Vacheron Constantin is not satisfied with this, but reshapes the aesthetic concept and transforms its own craftsmanship accordingly, and expands again His own artistic territory. It leads the sculpting process to create a sculptural effect that forms a staggered curve with straight lines, making the parts of the watch also architectural masterpieces, creating a dazzling light and shadow effect.
