Moon Watch’ Watch Omega Speedmaster! Chinese Cars That Can Go To Space See The Wey Brand!

In the watch industry, when it comes to diving watches, flying watches, racing watches and other models, I believe that everyone will not be too unfamiliar. These watches were originally created to serve certain professional fields. They all have their own special ‘housekeeping skills’. But when it comes to ‘moon watch’, that is, a watch that can be used on the moon, only the Omega Speedmaster series. Here, the ‘lunar watch’ we are talking about was not created by the Omega brand for marketing. There are many real stories behind it. As early as 1962, American astronaut Wally Schirra personally purchased the Omega 2 Speedmaster series watch CK2998 as his first flight watch and performed the US manned space flight mission ‘ Mercury. In the ‘Mercury’ project-Hercules 8 mission, Shi Aila wearing the Omega Speedmaster series CK2998 boarded the Sigma 7 spacecraft, this watch is also the first Omega watch into space. Following the launch of the Omega Speedmaster “CK2998” blue and white limited edition watch in 2016, Omega launched a black and white limited edition of this series in 2018, which is still limited to 2998 pieces at a public price of 43,600 yuan. Classic black ceramic bezel with white enamel pulse reading scale for easy calculation of heartbeats per minute. The 39.7 mm watch uses a stainless steel case. The three classic black small dials are neatly arranged on the silver dial. From a distance, it feels a little ‘panda’. The hour and minute hands are blackened with Alpha hands, and the chronograph seconds hand is painted in red lacquer. The black leather strap of the racer style is full of sportiness. The back of the watch is engraved with a limited number of editions and the iconic emblem of the hippocampus, following the tradition of the original ‘CK 2998’ watch. The watch is equipped with the Omega 1861 movement, which has a deep historical connection with the moon watch. This rhodium-plated movement has a power reserve of 48 hours and uses traditional manual winding. Nowadays, the manual winding movement of the Speedmaster series watches is almost identical to the watch movement worn by NASA astronauts on the moon. In 1969, when President John F. Kennedy announced the challenge to manned the moon, only one American had stayed in space for 15 minutes and 28 seconds. This shows how bold this statement is. This historic moment accompanied the astronaut Buzz Aldrin on the moon’s surface. At that time, he was wearing a Speedmaster professional watch. Since then, this watch has a ‘lunar watch’. Good reputation. From the ‘Gemini’ program to today’s International Space Station program, the Omega Speedmaster Professional Chronograph is always the only NASA-certified equipment that can participate in all manned space flight missions. Today’s Omega Speedmaster professional chronograph, also commonly known as the ‘Moonwatch’, uses this 42mm chronograph with a black dial with a speedometer scale, showing a unique design style. Hour scale, central hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova. The carbon fiber crystal mirror protects the dial and features a 30-minute chronograph dial, a 12-hour chronograph dial and a small seconds dial. The stainless steel case with the same material bracelet or black leather strap, the movement also uses the Omega 1861 manual winding movement, also to pay tribute to the classic. The Omega ‘Moon Watch’ has a special case and two straps: one is a ‘NATO’ NATO military nylon strap, and the other is a strap for astronauts. In addition, there are bracelet changing tools and operating instructions, Speedmaster magnifiers, metal tags, and a booklet describing the exploration of Omega Speedmaster. The stainless steel case and the stainless steel bracelet ‘lunar watch’, the public price is 37,200 yuan, for ‘moon exploration’ enthusiasts, this Omega moon watch is indeed rich in high commemorative value. April 24 this year is China’s fourth spaceflight day. Since China’s first artificial earth satellite Dongfanghong 1 was successfully launched on April 24, 1970, it was approved by the State Council in 2016 and will be in April every year. The 24th is designated as China Aerospace Day. On this day, the Chinese luxury SUV leader WEY signed a strategic cooperation agreement with China Aerospace Foundation and China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology, officially becoming China Aerospace’s first partner in the automotive field. As this cooperation coincides with the first maritime launch of the Long March 11 launch vehicle, the WEY brand will create four ‘China firsts’: the automotive brand will become the Chinese aerospace business partner for the first time, reaching China’s first maritime launch partnership, national level The rocket was jointly named by the brand for the first time and China Aerospace and China Automotive jointly established the ‘Joint Technology Innovation Center’ for the first time. It is worth mentioning that the Long March 11 rocket undertaking the maritime launch mission was officially named ‘CZ-11 WEY’. When the rocket launch day is when the WEY brand really takes off, it will give the WEY brand Brings Supreme Glory. The cooperation between the WEY brand and China Aerospace is not just a superficial symbolic cooperation. The WEY brand and China Aerospace jointly create a ‘Joint Technology Innovation Center’. At the signing ceremony, the WEY brand also hired Mr. Peng Kunya, chief designer of the Long March 11 Solid Transportation Rocket of the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology, as the president of the United Technology Innovation Center and the technical inspector of the WEY brand. In this newly established joint technology innovation center, the two sides will integrate China’s aerospace technology into the research and development and manufacturing of automobiles through joint development. The specific content covers seven aspects including aerospace-grade aerodynamics, aerospace-grade zero-defect research and development, and aerospace-grade structural safety technology. The cooperation results obtained by the United Technology Innovation Center will first be applied to WEY VV6 Aerospace Special Edition models. If you say, the Omega Speedmaster series has written a legend of human spaceflight to the moon. Then, the Chinese luxury SUV leader WEY brand reached a strategic cooperation agreement with China Aerospace, which opened a period of history for Chinese brands to ‘go up’. I am also looking forward to what surprises the WEY VV6 special edition model with aerospace research and development strength will bring to everyone. Let us wait and see. (Text / Qiu Xiaozheng)

The Pioneer Of Modern Diving Watches Blancpain Fifty Fathoms “Deep Ocean • Legend” Tour Anshan Bloom

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the fifty-two series, the founder of the modern diving watch, Blancpain, Switzerland’s top watch brand, launched the ‘Deep Ocean • Legend’ series of fifty-series exhibitions in China. On April 25, 2014, the touring exhibition kicked off in Anshan, the steel capital. From now on, it will be displayed on the first floor of the East Tower of Anshan Huitong Watch & Jewelry Store in Blancpain. In this exhibition, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms watch family and related documents are displayed, showing the glorious years of the Fifty Fathoms series. At the same time, a number of Blancpain’s top sophisticated collection watches were also unveiled in Anshan, demonstrating the powerful and extraordinary watchmaking capabilities of ‘the creator of classic timepieces’.

 The birth of Blancpain is a legendary story full of innovation and pioneering. In 1952, Mr. Jean-Jacques Fiechter, Blancpain’s current CEO who was passionate and passionate about diving, based on his own experience and needs in diving, he created a special one for diving. Watch. The origin of the name ‘Fifty Centuries’ comes from the collision of passion and romance. When Mr. Fiechter devoted himself to developing this watch, his heart echoed Shakespeare’s famous book ‘The Storm’. The singing of Ariel. Ariel sang in the ballad — ‘Father lying in the depths of your water, your bones have turned into corals’ The word ‘噚’ is a unit that people use to measure water depth, so Fiechter ) Mr. added the word ‘前面’ to the name of this new work, because it was considered to be the ultimate depth that divers could dive at that time. Since then, this watch has been called ‘Fifty Fatty’ by the world. Later, after official British measurements, its water resistance did reach a depth of 91.44 meters (50 inches). In 1952, the birth of the Fifty Fathoms watch wrote a brilliant stroke in Blancpain’s own development history, and also laid the cornerstone of modern diving watches, and set a dazzling monument in the modern diving watch industry.

 In 1953, due to the accidental encounter between Mr. Fiechter and two French naval officers, Bob, the co-founder of the French elite combat diving unit who had tried many times in the country to find qualified suppliers but ended in failure. Mr. Maloubier finally selected Blancpain from Switzerland as an important working instrument for the French Navy’s special forces. The figure of the fifty-five also began to appear in the French diving commando. Of all the difficult and dangerous underwater military operations. Today, the Fifty Fathoms watch series has been adopted by many naval forces in France, Israel, the United States, Germany, and Northern Europe, and has become the standard military diving watch in many countries.

Late enough for more than 40 years. Several patents unique to the Fifty Fathoms series are even more outstanding and outstanding. They are: 1) Water resistance of the crown: Blancpain Fifty Fathoms is used to enhance the waterproofness of the case. It is arranged on the crown. The upper double ‘O’ seal ring, because the crown is not a tightly fixed part, may expose the watch to the risk of water leakage when suddenly pulled out underwater. The double ‘O’ seal ring better protects the watch in It can be sealed and leak-proof under all kinds of underwater conditions; 2) Water resistance of the case back: Blancpain’s special metal guide groove for placing the ‘O’ ring on the screw back cover, and the double-layer barrier is tight. Waterproof; 3) Safety of diving: Blancpain Fifty Fathoms has a lockable unidirectional rotating scaled bezel to check the diving time and remaining oxygen storage capacity, and accurately display the underwater environment data to provide divers with Reliable judgment.

 The situation is changing.

The movement of the king with excellent functions and specially developed for sports has shaped the profound and timeless connotation of the Fifty Fathoms watch, which can be called the industry’s original and masterpiece. In addition, Blancpain lasted for 3 years. In 2003, it launched a specially developed adhesive for its sapphire crystal rotating outer ring, which enables the bezel and metal case to be more firmly bonded. This is Blancpain 50.噚 Another unique patent of the watch, so far no one can break through. And a series of classic masterpieces that stand out from the crowd are even more amazing. Among them: the Fifty Fathoms Tourbillon watch released in 2007, for the first time brought the complex function of the tourbillon into the deep sea;噚 Refreshing; launched a 500 ; GMT watch with a water resistance of 1,000 meters in 2009; a full-calendar flyback chronograph moon phase watch presented to the world in 2010 incorporating moon phase functionality into the diving field; launched in 2011 in the industry The pinnacle of the X 噚 watch has many ‘world’s first’ leading technologies; and the 50 噚 ‘Deep Submersible’ (Bathyscaphe) diving watch released in 2013 is another outstanding masterpiece in the history of the 50 噚. Every step forward, every technological innovation, every innovation and achievement is a shining pen in the development process of Fifty Fathoms, and it is also a glorious legend in the development history of human diving watches.

 Blancpain knows ‘only real understanding can stimulate passion’. Blancpain supports a number of important marine scientific research projects for a long time. Among them, it is particularly worth mentioning that it cooperates with National Geographic to implement the ‘Primitive Ocean Expedition Plan’ which combines exploration, research and protection. , Designed to continuously explore the vast and mysterious underwater universe, to show people the mystery and magnificence of the pristine ocean, to let more people feel the extraordinary charm of the ocean, so as to guide people to spontaneously respect and protect the humanity.

This special issue also stands out in its peers for its exquisite photography. All these are aimed at awakening people’s attention to the marine issues that plague the current international community and the initiative to protect the oceans. This is Blancpain’s responsibility to the oceans, but also to the whole society and humankind.

 After several generations of innovative research and development, Fifty Fathoms, with its unique technology, has been deeply imprinted with the industry’s first, most professional, and most luxurious modern diving watch in terms of movement and appearance from the day of its birth. It has achieved historical achievements that are hard to reach and has an unshakable industry status.

Looking to the future, Fifty Fathoms will also take a firmer step, continue to challenge the limits, conquer the deep sea, and continue to write legends …
