A domestic seagull watch has a price tag of 1.68 million yuan and has achieved ‘four consecutive victories’ in overseas intellectual property lawsuits for four consecutive years. It has independently developed ultra-complex watches such as chronographs, questionnaires and double tourbillon watches … The Tianjin Seagull Watch, which was listed as one of the ‘Three Major Pieces’ in the 1950s, was once the darling of people’s memory. It is appearing in the world table with a new look. With the enthusiasm of ‘I have a Chinese heart’, The world’s high-end sophisticated mechanical watch market has been infused with Chinese ancestry, and the legend of national watches blooming on the world watch table has moved more and more people around the world.的 The legendary story of ‘Seagull Watch’
In the early days of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the history of the smoke gradually faded. Facing the sore holes left by the “Old World”, at the time, there were only watch repair shops in China, and there were no watchmaking companies. Frequent foreign guests repaired watch repairs to Chinese watchmakers Technology is amazed and sincerely said, ‘Unfortunately, you won’t make watches in China,’ it hurts the heart of these craftsmen.
In 1954, the then Prime Minister Zhou Enlai proposed a strategic plan for ‘filling industrial gaps’. The Tianjin Light Industry Bureau approved the establishment of a watch trial production group (the predecessor of Tianjin Watch Factory). Four workers paid 100 yuan in the office for a small house. Keeping four simple instruments inside, after more than a hundred days of hard work day and night, finally developed the ‘China’s first watch’ on March 24, 1955.年底 At the end of 1956, the state approved an investment of 9 million yuan to establish the ‘Tianjin Watch Factory’ (predecessor of the Seagull Watch) with an annual output of 240,000 watches. The first watch factory invested by the state in this country was born. Since then, the development of the ‘Seagull’ has been closely linked to the history of the Chinese watch industry. The mission is on the shoulder, setting a number of China first
Since Tianjin Watch Factory (the predecessor of Seagull Watch) manufactured China’s first watch in 1955, Seagull Watch has continuously set a number of ‘firsts’ in the history of Chinese watchmaking: China’s first watch ‘Five Star Watch’ and China’s first product Watch-Mayi watch, China’s first self-designed watch-Dongfeng watch, China’s first export watch, China’s first female watch in compliance with international standards-Seagull watch, ‘China’ for the Chinese Air Force ‘First aviation watch’-sample chronograph, China’s first ‘(coaxial and eccentric) dual tourbillon watch’ and so on.
China’s first productized watch-Wuyi Watch
After Tianjin Watch Factory successfully developed the ‘Five Star Watch’, in order to meet the watch consumption demand of the Chinese people as quickly as possible, based on the core technology of the ‘Five Star Watch’, the famous ‘Five Star Watch’ was produced in a short period of time. In the context of the economic shortage at the time, it could be said to be a ‘seasonal’ commodity. By October 1958, a mass production scale had been formed. Since then, China’s history of “only repairing watches but not creating watches” is gone, and it has also laid the foundation for the development of China’s watch industry. As the first productized watch in China, the ‘May 1’ watch was no longer produced after 1971, completing its historical mission.
China’s first export watch-seagull watch
的 The development and growth of the watch industry, which represents the development level of China’s light industry, has won the favor of leaders at all levels, and ‘going out’ has let the world know that China’s development and a strong voice are also getting stronger. In 1973, with the approval of the then Vice Premier of the State Council, Li Xiannian, the ‘Dongfeng’ watch entered the international market under the ‘Seagull’ trademark, and the Tianjin Watch Factory also obtained the right to export its products in 1988. In early 1974, Tianjin Watch Factory organized the ST6 women’s watch design team to develop mechanical women’s watches. Ten sample tables were completed on March 8, 1975, and put into production at the end of the year. Subsequently, the ST6 series was developed.
    China’s first aviation watch
In April 1961, according to the mission assigned by a light department at that time, Tianjin Watch Factory initiated a trial production of an aviation watch (chronograph) for the Chinese Air Force, with the task code ‘304’. From September 1961 to October 1965, Try out three batches of sample sheets. In October 1965, ‘304’-‘China’s first aviation watch’ successfully passed the index test; in December 1965, it passed the appraisal of leaders and expert organizations to finalize mass production. Its movement was named T3 in order. 1966 In May of this year, the Tianjin Watch Factory decided to put into production a plan. At the end of October of the same year, 1,400 finished products were officially assembled and sent to the front line of the Chinese Air Force. In November 2004, Tianjin Seagull Watch Group Co., Ltd. mobilized several generations of technical staff to innovate designs based on prototype movements, and continuously introduced hollow, 1902, 1903, 1905, 1907, 1908 and other movements, renamed ST19 series.
Reform and breakthrough, independently develop ‘China Heart’
中 In the mid-to-late 1980s and early 1990s, watch companies under the planned system suffered fierce market shocks and fissioned. With the entry of foreign capital, many old brands like ‘Seagull’ disappeared in the wave of competition and mergers and acquisitions. In 1997, under the pinch of low-priced Japanese electronic watches and Swiss mechanical watches, the seagulls resolutely transformed. With an annual production capacity of 3.5 million electronic watches, all production lines are transferred. Combining time-honored process features and advantages, we aim at market trends and develop new automatic mechanical watches. The endangered bankruptcy seagull watch factory completed the structural adjustment in less than a year, the main business was done, and the auxiliary business was activated.
The movement is the core component of the watch industry. Seagull believes that insisting on building a movement manufacturing base with independent research and development capabilities means that Seagull has unique advantages in participating in the competition of international watch companies.
Three Complex Functions Infused into Chinese Bloodline
‘TOURBILLON’, ‘Repeater Watch’ and ‘Perpetual Calendar Watch’ are known as the three classics in the field of watches. Due to the complicated manufacturing process and technical difficulties, these classic watch technologies have been monopolized by Swiss watch companies.
Nowadays, after the reorganization of this once brilliant national brand is renamed the Seagull Group, it has successfully developed and produced three complex functions in Chinese-made watches: minute repeater watch, perpetual calendar watch and tourbillon watch. Even the tourbillon series of watches has produced a double tourbillon watch, which is very rare and difficult in the world. Injecting Chinese blood into the world’s high-end complex mechanical watch market. From 2006 to 2008, Seagull successively captured the world’s three classic watchmaking technologies, and pioneered the development of a tourbillon watch with a ‘Chinese core’, a double tourbillon watch, a timepiece, and a moon phase perpetual calendar, breaking the monopoly of Swiss watches. . The double tourbillon watch developed by Seagull is very rare in the world: it also has eccentricity (also called non-coaxial, that is, the center of the balance wheel and the center of the tourbillon structure are not on the same axis), coaxial (that is, the pendulum The center of the wheel and the center of the tourbillon structure are on the same axis) Two different types of tourbillons have achieved new leap forwards in terms of travel time accuracy and craft aesthetics, and a single technology can be compared with the world’s mechanical watch industry famous brand watches. Win the international table
上 At the 2012 Basel International Watch & Clock Fair in Switzerland, Tianjin Seagull Watch Group successfully resolved a lawsuit of an internationally renowned company and successfully defended its rights. Since 2008, Seagull Watch has achieved the ‘four-game winning streak’ in overseas intellectual property lawsuits in four years.
    At the Basel Watch & Jewellery Show in Basel, Switzerland in April 2008, a Swiss company filed a complaint with the Seagull dual tourbillon watch, arguing that its key components copied their patented design, and that the Seagull Watch provided evidence within a time limit, otherwise it would face ‘immediate clearance, impermissible the following year ‘Exhibition’ was punished and claimed. The seagull watch is well-organized, and after strict identification, the results show that the ‘differential structure’ of the seagull watch has a ‘planetary wheel’ that is not involved in Swiss company patents, and there is no infringement at all. Instead, this lawsuit allowed the Seagull watch to prove its strength and earned a reputation for the domestic brand standing at the top of the world.
In recent years, the Seagull Group has taken a path of differentiated development through independent innovation, successively conquering the three complicated structures of mechanical watches, which has shaken the world watch. Seagull’s innovative power has made its watch industry Swiss counterparts look at it. Experts in charge of the ruling turned from doubt to admiration after comparing the appearance of the Seagull double tourbillon watch, praising again and again: ‘You have been a Swiss company for more than a decade. ‘

Montblanc Launches 1858 Chronograph Chronograph Limited Edition

Adhering to the spirit of mountain exploration, Montblanc gave a new interpretation of Minerva’s historical military chronograph from the 1930s, and launched a limited edition 1858 chronograph chronograph (model: 119910). With its 1858 product line, Montblanc pays tribute to the traditional professional timepieces of Menela designed for military and adventure.

Montblanc 1858 Chronograph Chronograph Limited Edition

   Like the prototype, the Montblanc 1858 chronograph chronograph has a rangefinder scale around the dial, which is also a typical feature of Minerva chronographs. The rangefinder can measure the distance between the observer and the point where the phenomenon occurs (both visible and audible), such as lightning and thunder in a storm. When you see the phenomenon (lightning), you start the pointer, and when you hear the sound (thunder), it stops timing. The scale pointed by the pointer is the distance (unit: kilometers) between the observer and the point where the phenomenon occurs. The scale is set based on the speed at which sound travels through the air and is approximately 340 meters per second.

Minerva chronograph in history

   There is also a speedometer in the center of the dial of this watch. The scale mark is snail-shaped and the measurement time is up to three minutes (the traditional chronograph scale is only one minute). It is used to show that a moving object (such as a car) is passing a known distance ( 1000 meters). The car starts the pointer when it passes the starting point and stops timing when it reaches the end point. The scale pointed by the pointer is the average speed when passing a known distance.

   The combination of timing and tracking needle complex functions allows the user to record two events that occur at the same time but end at different times. Like traditional timepieces with this function, the watch’s sapphire crystal back allows a glimpse of the subtle operation of the chase mechanism.

   Montblanc 1858 chronograph chronograph uses a 44mm diameter satin bronze case with a black lacquered dial and red gold markings, highlighting the retro style while providing excellent legibility. The sapphire crystal is anti-magnetically treated inside, allowing the two chronograph seconds hands to ensure extremely high precision. The red gold-coated central chronograph second hand, the white central chase second hand, and the chronograph minute hand at 3 o’clock together display the chronograph information.

M16.31 movement

   Montblanc’s 1858 chronograph chronograph is equipped with the brand’s new M16.31 single-button chronograph movement, which is equipped with a double-column wheel and a horizontal coupling clutch device, and can provide a 50-hour power reserve. The M16.31 movement was inspired by the Calibre 17.29 movement developed by Minerva in 1930 for pocket watches and watches. This modern movement features exquisite hand-finished finishes such as Geneva patterns, round grain and chamfers-as well as exquisite details such as Minerva small arrows, ‘V’ shaped chronograph bridges, and 18,000 times per hour ( 3 Hz) Large balance wheel with traditional vibration frequency operation.

   Montblanc 1858 chronograph chronograph features a black alligator leather strap with beige stitching. It is reported that the watch is now on the market, with a limited edition of 100 pieces, priced at 31,000 US dollars, equivalent to about 210,000 yuan. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
