Cartier once contributed to the Geneva Watch Fair, not only wonderful watches, but also the precision movement hidden under the work is also a major feature. It is these advantages of Cartier’s self-produced movement that allow the ingenious inspiration of designers to transform reality.
The 9452MC movement that appeared at the 2008 watch exhibition also renewed its vitality last year, and it appeared in Cartier’s Tank Am & eacute; ricaine. All stainless steel parts of the movement have been chamfered, drawn and polished on the visible side. The decoration of the details complements the charm of the movement and maximizes its life. At the same time, this floating tourbillon watch is equipped with a C-shaped tourbillon frame at 6 o’clock, and the free-floating tourbillon rotates once every 60 seconds to get rid of the bondage of the tourbillon bridge. Even more exciting is that when the watch is placed in the backlight position, the internal structure of the watch can be seen through the frame of the floating tourbillon.
Inheritance of ancient craftsmanship does not mean permanent adherence to rules, innovation is also the philosophy of Cartier Watch Workshop. The high-tech craftsmanship and extraordinary creativity of mankind that have always been at the top of the times have always been Cartier’s motivation to move forward. It is precisely driven by this driving force that Cartier Watchmaking Workshop formulated the ‘Think Tank’ plan in 2007, with the same team and the same location (Une & eacute; quipe, un lieu) ‘For the principle of watch development, the brand’s R & D strength is concentrated in the same place, in order to optimize the organization and management of time and space. This method promotes the exchange of ideas between the design team of Cartier Watchmaking Workshop and can quickly transform these creative ideas into products and bring them to market.
Not only is the design and research department, Cartier Watch Workshop’s production studio (l & rsquo; espace Production) also optimizes the workflow through innovative methods. The studio abandons the traditional production concept that separates production processes into different types and separates from each other, and draws on the methods used by other industries to centralize the processes needed to make a watch. This team cooperation mode not only reduces the time and process of watch production, but also makes the watch quality continuously improve. At the same time as the workflow is optimized, Cartier’s production technology is constantly innovating. For example, after the production of the basic parts of the watch is completed, the parts will be transported to a studio (l & rsquo; Espace Horloger) where the pressure is closely monitored, The core, watch head and strap are assembled. The air inside the studio is continuously filtered and circulated to prevent dust from attaching to the precision parts of the movement or watch.

Iwc Launches The First Ceratanium® Case With A Titanium Ceramic Case. Marine Watch Perpetual Calendar Digital Date Month Watch ’50th Anniversary Marine Watch’ Special Edition

Sept. 20, 2017, Schaffhausen– To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the launch of the Ocean Time Series diver’s watch, Schaffhausen IWC launched the first Ceratanium® (ceramic titanium) Metal) special edition watch. This unique material combines the characteristics of both titanium and ceramic materials: it is as light and sturdy as titanium, as hard as ceramic and resistant to friction. Not only that, the watch made with this new material stands out with its skin-friendly and unique texture matte black shape, while integrating the digital perpetual calendar display and timing function.

   Early in the early days of scuba diving, IWC launched the Ocean Timepiece, the first in 1967. This marine timepiece is water-resistant to 200 meters and equipped with a rotating inner ring for setting the diving time. IWC has thus laid the foundation for the performance of diver’s watches, providing an underwater and land adventure. A reliable companion. At the 50th anniversary of the launch of the Ocean Timepiece, IWC created the first watch with a Ceratanium® case. ‘Thanks to the use of titanium and ceramic materials, we achieved pioneering watchmaking in the 1980s. Today, Ceratanium® has once again validated our expertise in material applications.’ IWC Schaffhausen Chief Executive Officer Christoph Grainger-Herr said.

   The special edition of IWC Marine Timepiece Perpetual Calendar Digital Date Month Watch ’50th Anniversary of Marine Timepiece’ (model: IW379403) is limited to 50 pieces. The most significant feature is the new Ceratanium® case. IWC’s material experts worked hard for more than five years to finally create this unique material based on titanium alloy. Ceratanium® is light in weight, not as easy to break as titanium, and at the same time has ceramic hard and frictional properties. Another major advantage is its skin-friendly and high corrosion resistance. Through a special manufacturing process, this metallic material has a black ceramic surface and a black dial, which is uniquely attractive. Not only that, some parts of the 89802-made homemade movement, such as the self-winding oscillating weight, have also been blackened. The watch is equipped with a digital perpetual calendar display function, which displays large Arabic numeral dates and months in the style of a digital watch, and can automatically recognize different lengths of months and peace and leap years. The chronograph with flyback function displays the time in combination on the chronograph dial at 12 o’clock.

   Like all marine timepiece models, this 10 bar water-resistant timepiece is equipped with an inner and outer rotating bezel for setting the diving time. The IWC SafeDive system ensures that the rotating inner ring can only be set when the rotating outer ring is turned counterclockwise. Therefore, even if the rotating outer ring is inadvertently adjusted, the diver can be safely returned within the zeroing time (that is, the time required for the diver to safely rise to the surface without decompression). It is also worth mentioning that the quick-change system of the bracelet can easily replace the black rubber strap of this watch.
