2013 Sihh Geneva Fine Watchmaking Salon-iwc Engineers Constant Power Tourbillon Watch

IWC Schaffhausen, a Swiss watchmaker, is proud of its superior engineer constant-power tourbillon watch in the high-end watch industry, consolidating its top position in watch design. In order to achieve an extremely uniform travel time, the watchmaker integrated a patented constant power mechanism into the tourbillon—a masterpiece of engineering.

 High-end watchmaking has one thing in common with F1TM-Formula One: Only when engineers make all parts work together perfectly can the technology be used to its full potential. Only in this way can high-tech masterpieces achieve the best performance, whether on the track or on the wrist. Just as the V8 engine is suitable for acceleration and braking at extreme speeds, the manual winding device of a mechanical watch should also provide as stable power as possible during the travel period. However, the tension of the mainspring of a conventional manual winding movement in the initial state is always greater than the end state, and the resulting power is constantly changing. IWC’s research and development team consisting of engineers, watchmakers and designers took 10 years to explore this challenge, and the end result is remarkable: a very complex constant power integrated into the tourbillon The mechanism was born. This IWC research and development was first applied in the engineer’s constant-power tourbillon watch (model IW590001) in the engineer’s watch family in 2013, the watch uses platinum and ceramic case.
Constant power tourbillon-the heart of timepieces
 The constant-power tourbillon is located at the ‘9 o’clock’ position, which is breathtaking and breathtaking, giving people a glimpse of the fascinating architecture of its multilayer structure. For precision machinery enthusiasts, it is a special enjoyment to watch the high-precision and complex operation of clockwork, gear trains and forks. The black tourbillon bridge is very eye-catching, with a countdown and black screws, which emphasize the technological temperament of the dial. In sharp contrast is the delicate, gold-shimmering Glucydur® * beryllium alloy balance wheel, which is equipped with a high-precision fine-tuning cam. The tourbillon makes one rotation in 60 seconds, which is designed to offset the error caused by the gravity of the balance wheel on one side, and thus offset the deviation of the travel time rate. Visible inside the tourbillon is the constant dynamic mechanism integrated into it-the true heart of the timepiece. This ingenious mechanism decouples the escapement from the direct power transmission of the gear train, thereby ensuring that the amplitude of the balance wheel is stable, thereby making the travel time rate almost constant. The power is temporarily stored in the hairspring and delivered to the escape wheel. The hairspring is tightened once every second. You can observe that the tourbillon hand also jumps forward in seconds. After every 5 single swings of the balance wheel, the brake wheel and tourbillon carrier also start to operate. The rotation of the brake wheel causes the tourbillon carrier to rotate, thereby causing the hairspring to be tensioned again. After about 2 days, the constant power mode will switch to normal mode: At this time, the second hand will jump in every fifth of a second. The constant-power tourbillon can ensure an absolutely even and accurate travel time for at least 48 hours.
Instrument-style accumulator
 The newly-developed IWC manual-winding 94900-based basic movement combines the power of two barrels into one, which can provide the larger torque required for a constant-power tourbillon. In addition, it provides the power needed to drive the moon phase display. IWC’s classic dual moon phase display in the northern and southern hemispheres also debuted with a completely new look. As far as its position on the upper right is concerned, it is already outstanding, not to mention the moon is so vivid. With the help of a special three-dimensional laser processing procedure, its surface can be as realistic as possible, and even tiny craters can be seen. The countdown display on the outer circle of the totalizer is used to display the number of days from the next profitable month. The power reserve display between ‘4 o’clock’ and ‘5 o’clock’ is an innovative masterpiece of IWC. It adopts a retrograde design and displays the remaining winding power through a triangular pointer. The connecting bridge is cleverly designed and will not hide the IWC logo during the 96-hour walk of the watch. Three accumulators are embedded in the bezel, the design of which is inspired by technical instruments, further highlighting the chic sports characteristics of the watch. The dial’s black tones are subtle, with a black high-tech ceramic bezel and a solid platinum crown guard, making the watch’s quiet, technological temperament a natural fit. On the inner circle of the watch, you can see a classic icon with a long history, which is composed of a nested uppercase letter ‘I’ and a slender serif. The letter symbolizes the engineer (Ingenieur) and also gives the relief pattern a special depth.
A closer look at the ‘engine’
 Looking at the engineer’s constant-power tourbillon watch from the side of the movement is like looking at the engine compartment of a sports car. Corresponding to the drilled holes in the bezel of the front cover, the sapphire glass ring on the case is also embedded with 5 titanium screws with ceramic screw caps. The sandblasted and satin-finished surface of the movement’s base plate and the polished corners complement each other, reminiscent of high-performance cutting-edge engines. The intermeshing gears make the sight linger, and the engravings show the technical details-all the design elements are carefully selected and cooperate with each other, which is an excellent expression of power and dynamics.
IWC Schaffhausen
 Swiss watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen has dedicated itself to technology and research and development, and has been making watches of lasting value since 1868. The company eagerly pursues innovative solutions and original technologies, and has won wide acclaim internationally. As one of the world’s leading brands in the field of luxury watches, IWC combines precision and unique design to create a model that reflects the highest state of fine watchmaking art.

   Like the design of a suspension bridge, the movement splint can not only fix the movement in the case, but also effectively disperse the external impact force, and protect the movement of the movement from being affected and damaged.

   This watch does not have a dial. From the front of the watch, we can directly see the internal structure of the watch. The movement of the watch, the movement splint, the balance spring and other parts are clearly visible.

   From the picture we can see that the side of the watch is still made of sapphire crystal glass, which can clearly see the precision movement of the watch’s internal movement.

   The watch with strap is also made of 18K rose gold for comfortable wearing. The buckle is also made of the same material, using a pin buckle design, and the buckle is also engraved with the Kunlun brand name CORUM.

   The crown of the watch is located at 6 o’clock, and it is designed in the middle of the two lugs of the watch. In appearance, the watch is more integrated with personality. The top of the crown is engraved with Kunlun’s iconic upright key LOGO.

   The watch is equipped with a CO113 manual mechanical movement with a diameter of 33.27×11.28 mm, a frequency of 28,800 hours per hour, 19 gemstones, and a 40-hour power reserve.

Enamel Clocks And Watches: Days And Nights Of The World

The technique of enamel micro-painting requires decades of study and experience, as well as amazing patience and meticulousness. The artist hand-painted the pattern from the idea to the dial. Each enamel surface is a unique dual display of art and craftsmanship, which has become the ultimate goal of watch collectors. Patek Philippe Model 5131G
     On June 4th, the special exhibition of precious watches and antique clocks in the Beijing Poly Spring Auction ended. A Patek Philippe ‘World Time’ watch sold for 1.15 million yuan and model 5131G will undoubtedly become the most sought after collector on the spot. This watch was first introduced at the World Watch and Jewellery Show in Basel, Switzerland in 2008. It is based on Patek Philippe’s 5130 world timetable, with a filigree enamel dial. The world time model 5131 uses an 18-karat gold body and dial, and the center is decorated with a hand-painted silk enamel world map. This watch model can permanently display the time in twenty-four time zones around the world. This performance device combines a very simple Adjusting the way to show time around the world is a breeze. It’s a technological innovation. Because of its magnificent filigree enamel dial, the watch has been favored by a large number of connoisseurs who love enamel art, and has become the mainstream watch collection in contemporary watch brands.
Enamel painting technology has a history of hundreds of years
     Since its introduction in the late 15th century, enamel has become an unparalleled exquisite decorative art. Enamel watches have always been a collector’s favorite. Enamel has the warmth of jade, the brilliance of jewellery, and the detail of bone china. The most important thing is that this material is new and will not oxidize and fade. Even after hundreds of years, the enamel has bright colors They will not fade, they are like young people who have escaped the law of time. Among the various types of enamel technology, Patek Philippe’s World Time dial uses filigree enamel. The metal dial is first covered with a layer of anti-deformation enamel glaze, and the surface of the disk is baked without any defects. The painter painted the surface with several layers of white enamel before painting. Painters use special stylus pens, use high-power microscope magnification as an auxiliary tool, and paint carefully for weeks or even months. It is then roasted at a high temperature to let the color continue to increase until it emits a dazzling brilliance. Because each glaze has different color changes after heating, it often requires multiple colors and multiple firing to complete. Finally, a colorless transparent glaze is applied to protect the surface and make the colors more vivid and the picture more realistic. Of all World Time models, watches with hand-painted cloisonne thumbnails in the center of the dial are the most popular. Over the years, enamel patterns have diversified: a group of palm trees, lonely lighthouses, etc., but it is undeniable that the most popular is the stylized world map.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grand Tourbillon Continents series self-winding watch, one-minute tourbillon device, filigree micro-painted enamel dial chart
     When European civilization began to experience the most turbulent period in its history, the fine arts of enamel experienced the most brilliant moments. It was during that time that Spanish and Portuguese navigators began long journeys and adventures to explore areas that were still not fully understood at the time. Another enamel micro-painted watch estimated at 580,000-800,000 at the auction session-Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grand Tourbillon tourbillon watch, shows the appearance of a series of continents of our earth on the dial through enamel technology. To commemorate the breakthrough view of the country at that time, and to commemorate the discovery of the natural phenomenon that the earth is round. The area to be decorated on the dial is hollowed out with a carving knife to form grooves, and decorative patterns are drawn on the gold dial plate; the surface of each continent is carefully carved, in the direction of the four basic points of the compass. The grid is decorated, the bezel is also decorated with corresponding decoration, and the surface of the ocean is decorated with spray waves. The translucent enamel layer reveals a carved geographic pattern, showing incredible depth and density. The bezel is engraved with geographic coordinates, and the center point of the indicator is the center of the dial with a pattern of fixed hands. After repeated firing, the borders of different countries and the contours of the continent gradually appeared on the dial. This extremely precise masterpiece is impossible to mass produce.
A three-question self-satisfied pocket watch depicting Our Lady of Alba

This alone makes it Destined to be called an extremely rare collectible treasure in the international timepiece market. The pocket watch is a micro-painted enamel picture. According to the shape of the case, the rare circular composition work of Raphael’s masterpiece ‘Mother of Alba’ was subtly selected, and the ‘A The immortal classic of Our Lady of Barr is drawn mirror-to-mirror on a double-sided case, which is breathtaking. Unlike the more commonly-painted enamel subjects such as pastoral life or ladies’ flowers, the enamel picture of this three-question self-sounding pocket watch is taken from traditional religious themes, depicting the kinship between the Virgin and Child and John the Baptist bathed in the twilight dusk. In the picture, the Virgin is sitting on the floor, with the baby Jesus on his lap, and the older John the Baptist sitting beside him. The Virgin holds the Bible that has just been closed in her left hand, and puts her right hand on John Baptist’s knee, with a kind face and full of love.

Dior Viii Series 100 Years Of History

‘The principle of luxury is simplicity over everything.’ Christian Dior once said. Just like the ‘Bar suit’ designed in 1947, the Lady Dior bag launched in 1995 and the ‘J’ADORE’ perfume in 1999, the new Dior VIII watch is also classic The masterpiece of couture fashion and charm, adhering to the long tradition of Dior, showing the design style of geometric figures, full of eternal charm of feminine beauty.

The ultra-thin case and its delicate accessories are simple and neat. The bracelet is made of high-precision ceramics cut in a pyramid shape, which is elegant and noble. Time passes, the light shines on the cut surface, the light shines, like the plaid line of the ‘cannage’ pattern on the Dior Lady Dior handbag, showing the beautiful design. The pyramid-shaped shape faintly lets you see the shadow of the ‘Bar suit’.
Advanced custom services are always at the forefront of the times
腕表 This watch not only displays time, but also transcends contemporary fashion trends, just like the wardrobe in a high-end uniform design interior. Mr. Dior reminds us from time to time: “Premium uniforms are always at the forefront of the times.” The elegant and attractive black of this watch highlights its immortal value through high-precision ceramics. Mr. Christian Dior wrote in his fashion dictionary published in 1954: ‘I can write a book about black. You can wear black at any age, any occasion, and at any time. In the women’s wardrobe , Everyone must have a ‘black dress’. ‘
优雅 ‘Elegance is a whole, and the visible and invisible parts are as important.’ From a technical point of view, the Dior VIII series watches are noble and exquisite jewelry. The collection was created at the Dior Watch Studio in La Chaux-de-Fonds, home of the Swiss watchmaking industry, and features multi-faceted luminous hands, diamond-shaped hands and unidirectional rotating bezels.
背面 The words ‘VIII place Vendôme’ (8 Fonteun Place) are engraved on the back of the dial. Through the transparent case back, you can see the self-winding (refining) movement, faintly visible with black or painted oscillating weight. Just as the couture uniform incorporates a sophisticated and elegant style into the lining, the Dior VIII ‘Grand Bal’ series’ pursuit of detail has reached its peak.

Watch and fine jewellery craftsmanship in one
Nevertheless, Mr. Dior’s designs are also full of evening and prom dresses, and pieces are luxurious and glamorous. In fact, he did add: ‘Black and white are sufficient, but there is no reason to deprive them of other colors.’ As a result, from the day Dior VIII was born, diamonds and precious stones were used in the Dior VIII watch collection. .
Combining the watchmaking process with the fine jewelry making process, it reminds of the hard-working seamstresses in Dior’s Haute Couture Studio. They pleated, embroidered and cut fabrics with superb craftsmanship and discreet attitude. As a result, a string of diamonds set in the center of the dial of the Dior VIII watch is like satin stitching. Some bezels are set with gemstones, some are set with pyramid-shaped high-precision ceramics with white diamonds, and all are set with baguette diamonds, topaz, tsavorite or pink sapphires.
系列 This series is limited to 88 pieces each, a total of four styles, and equipped with ‘Calibre Dior inversé’ automatic winding (refining) movement. Just like the whirling of a waltz, the swing of the oscillating weight on the dial is reminiscent of an embroidered petticoat, a lace corolla or a pleated skirt with diamonds. It perfectly combines Swiss cutting-edge technology with the rich creativity of Paris.

The “Bar” suit is the iconic design of Dior, which shows that Mr. Dior showed his love for structural lines in the first series of works in 1947. ‘I used to dream of becoming an architect, and now as a fashion designer, I will follow the principles and rules of architecture.’ This explains why this ‘new look’ is soft, narrow shoulders, waist and hips. The design of the jacket could attract the attention of everyone at the time.
Today, Dior launches the Dior VIII watch series, a tribute to Mr. Dior, a great designer. The name of the Dior VIII watch is composed of 8 letters, which is also the lucky number of the founder of Dior: Dior Design Studio was founded on October 8, 1946; his first haute couture collection was named ‘en huit’ ( The French number ‘8’); Dior Fashion headquarters is located in the world-famous Montaigne Avenue in the 8th district of Paris; and Dior’s flagship watch and jewelry boutique is also located at 8 Fontaine Square in Paris.
