Hublot, the Swiss watchmaker, has officially launched a new classic fusion ‘Wandum Collection’ special edition watch at its boutique at 10 Place Vendôme. This watch will be launched under the same name of Hublot. Watch boutiques are on display for three months.

   This special edition watch is a tribute to Hublot to Place Vendôme. Brand boutiques have been in Place Vendôme for five years; the boutique’s iconic “H” pattern is based on the famous Vendôme column. decoration.

   The classic fusion ‘Vendôme series’ is a typical example of the concept of ‘art of fusion’ cherished by Hublot watchmakers. It is not only part of the history of the French capital, but also an innovative interpretation of its cultural heritage modernization.

   The Vendôme Column is a landmark of Paris with a height of 44 meters. It dates back to 1810 and is inspired by the Trajan’s Triumphal Column. The bronze on the column is said to be made of cannons seized by the French army from the enemy. The bas-relief around the pillar is decorated with battle victory scenes and trophy patterns. The top of the pillar is a bronze statue of Napoleon I. It was once destroyed and now rebuilt: the column of Vendôme truly stood the test of time.

   As a tribute, the dial of the classic ‘Wendum Collection’ is decorated with bronze. This copper-tin alloy is unstable in nature and easily stains patina. Even inside a clock, exposure to natural air can oxidize and corrode the life of the alloy. Therefore, Hublot watchmakers are packaged in sapphire crystal, limiting its contact with air, thereby stabilizing the properties of the alloy.

   The classic fusion ‘Vendome series’ case is made of titanium, with a vintage black rubber and brown calfskin strap, once again showing the unique fusion of Hublot tradition and modernity.

   Respecting traditions, while being unique and far-sighted, ultimately inspired the watchmaker of the Swiss watchmaker Hublot, like an alchemist, to magically fuse the past and the present to create the classic fusion ‘Wandum series’ Create an eternal future.

Day And Night Display From The ‘star’ Blancpain Women’s Day And Night Display Double Retrograde Watch

Blancpain’s new women’s day and night display watch is equipped with an extraordinary unique core and dual retrograde indication function. The dial adopts
Fine workmanship and a large number of technological innovations ensure that the watch has a unique independent day and night display. Blancpain
Blancpain’s brand new movement specially created for the women’s collection perfectly embodies the ‘innovation is tradition’ rooted in the brand’s genes as the ‘maker of classic timepieces’.

   Speaking of moon phases, I have to mention Blancpain
Blancpain, of course, is a natural representation. For women’s watches, not to mention more complicated than men’s watches, the most basic difference is exquisite. At Blancpain in Basel in 2015, a double retrograde day and night watch was exhibited. This is not only their innovation, but also enhances the artistic value of the watch to a new level.

   By 1150
Based on the movement, the new women’s day and night display watch uses a larger movement size. The winding oscillating weight has been beautifully carved and polished. The sapphire crystal is transparent, which greatly enhances the visual beauty of the complex process. Watch case diameter 40
Millimeters, less than 12 millimeters in thickness, and more harmonious in size and thickness.

   The most embodying technology is its original four-layer dial, which is hard for fans to imagine. Blancpain actually uses mother-of-pearl to divide the plate into three areas, each with a different height, which creates a three-dimensional depth of field effect. However, doing so requires careful attention to every small craft on the mother-of-pearl dial. One layer is thinner than the other, which is fragile and fragile. The watch also uses technology such as sedimentary materials and embossed contours to make the white fritillary disk appear blue starry sky. The moon uses 50
Consisting of glittering diamonds, the sun is composed of 50 yellow sapphires, yellow mother-of-pearl and diamond stars. This dial has a large amount of mother-of-pearl and is extremely attentive.

   The day and night display dial rotates twice a day, and the length of each change is about 4 minutes. Just as the dial itself is exquisitely decorated, all the details on the two dials will suddenly come into view when they are interlaced. The creation of this day and night dial
Many artistic techniques and craftsmanship were introduced during the process, such as: la décalque (precipitation material), le champlevé (embossed outline), and le
marquetage (integrated overlay pattern on mother-of-pearl) and more. The blue gradation precipitated on mother-of-pearl shows the time change from day to night. Moon consists of 50 crystal flash diamonds
The sun uses the same dazzling 50 yellow sapphires, matching the yellow mother-of-pearl dot pattern on the embellishment plate and 14 gorgeous diamonds symbolizing the stars.
   In addition to the day and night display function, this watch also has a dual retrograde (hour, minute retrograde) display function. The 6 o’clock second hand moves forward in an arc for 60 seconds and then instantly returns to the starting point. The hour hand reverses twice a day. Such a beautiful watch looks pleasing to the eye. Compared with ordinary chronograph watches, luxury watches are more refined in artistic and ornamental value.
