Want To Experience The Magic Of A Sapphire Watch? The Opportunity Is Coming

In recent years, breakthroughs in watch case materials have become more and more obvious, and more and more black technology, from the original ceramics, titanium metal, carbon fiber, to the sapphire that is now popular, let The traditional stereotype of watches has changed a lot. Sapphire is a very popular but scarce case material in recent years. This is not because sapphire is scarce, but because it is very difficult to process the case into sapphire, resulting in scarcity of sapphire case. However, you can see this article, which shows that you also have good luck. Hublot launched a Big Bang Unico watch with a transparent sapphire case earlier this year. We just arrived at the Hublot Oriental Xintiandi flagship store on the day We don’t know beforehand, so if you are interested, you should hurry up. Don’t chase too many people like this ‘artifact’, and the number is also good, I will tell you later.

   Hublot’s innovation ability is beyond doubt.

Today, this one is obviously a ‘friendly’ version of all Hublot transparent case watches.

   This watch was launched during this year’s Geneva watch exhibition. Although Hublot did not participate in SIHH, Hublot did not stop launching new products. The case was made of sapphire, which was highly transparent, coupled with the central dark gray movement and dial surface. There are white luminous scales and hands, and a semi-hollowed-out dial surface, which has a strong sense of technology. We all know that sapphire is very hard, second only to diamonds. Because of this, it is very difficult to process, so that many brands are not watches that do not want to produce sapphire cases, but they are not able to produce, because the processing is difficult, so the cost It is also high, which will inevitably lead to a very high price, coupled with its strong sense of technology, which is inconsistent with the positioning of many brands. Therefore, there are only a few brands with sapphire cases.

   Big Bang Unico sapphire watch is limited to 500 pieces, this one is the 160th one, this number is not bad. The watch is also a multi-piece structure unique to Big Bang. The interesting thing is that the sapphire surface of the case and bezel has been polished, and the permeability is very good. You can fully see the skin on the wrist without wearing it. Reflective. The bezel is fixed with titanium screws, and the crown and timing buttons are also made of frosted titanium.

   The lugs are made of synthetic resin and equipped with Hublot’s patented detachable structure. Just press the ladder button on the lugs to remove the strap. Similarly, the strap has a grooved interface. The connecting piece has a circular rod-shaped groove at the bottom. When the strap connecting piece is inserted into the detachable structure, the internal round shaft will be embedded in the groove. It is actually not difficult to fix the strap. The difficulty is the original Design and conception. This system is very convenient to use and matches the overall design of the case.

   The watch is equipped with Hublot’s self-made UNICO HUB124 self-winding chronograph movement with a column wheel clutch system. It is worth mentioning that the watch’s chronograph operation feels very light, and the operation of pressing the chronograph and returning to zero is easy and bright. The whole movement is plated in black, which contrasts with the transparent sapphire case, highlighting the uniqueness of high-tech watchmaking.

  The watch is equipped with a rubber strap with folding buckle, which is comfortable to wear and operate.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Legendary Air Clock, a work of art that returns to design

 Designers Sir Jonathan Yves and Mark Newson have customized a unique Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos 561 by Marc Newson air clock for the 2013 (RED) TM Charity Auction, featuring red hands, red month indication and red Atmos 561 The logo is engraved with the (RED) TM and Marc Newson logos on the back, and ‘Unique Piece’ marks the cooperation between Jaeger-LeCoultre and (RED) TM and the two designers.

 Born in 2008, the Atmos 561 by Marc Newson air clock launched by designer Mark Newson and Jaeger-LeCoultre has joined the ranks of contemporary classic design. Designer Mark Newson returns to the essence of design, and on the basis of retaining the classic features of the Atmos air clock of 1928, he blends in the exquisite and modern aesthetics. This Atmos air clock uses a crystal bubble-shaped clock case made by Baccart. The hours and minutes are displayed on a transparent clock dial, and other functions are displayed through the dial: the central dial is used to display the month; the six-phase position is the moon phase dial The number ‘561’ on the top represents the internal movement model.

 In 1928, after careful research by the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory, the first batch of air clocks that did not require batteries, no power supply, and no winding was finally available. The secret of its operation is: a sealed cover is filled with mixed mercury vapor, and the gas expands due to the increase in temperature and shrinks due to the decrease in temperature. Like the organ and bellows, the sealed winder winds the clockwork with constant contraction and expansion movements to drive the clock. Temperature changes of one degree Celsius can provide power for 48 hours of operation. The ring balance vibrates twice a minute, and its energy consumption is 250 times lower than that of an ordinary watch with a frequency of 300 times a minute.

 Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea

In 2011, Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced a new limited edition watch in memory of this historic watch. Like the prototype, the new models are also available in European and American versions.
