Blancpain Moon Phase Watches Rich And Stylish Watches, Just Like This

Cars, wine, and watches are unspoken games among modern elites. From the perspective of ingenuity and appearance rate, the in-person watch undoubtedly prevails.

In other words, when buying a mechanical watch, the elite’s brain is not only thinking about the strength and comprehensive functions of the movement. What ultimately made them pay for it may be an inadvertent sentence by others: ‘This only The owner of the watch must be very tasteful. ‘
  If the material foundation is a private jet, a good aesthetic is like the most advanced navigation instrument, which determines which direction you go and whether you can see good scenery. Wealth and taste are never contradictory, but they are also the most difficult to balance. Elites who are proficient in social means know that financial affirmation is given to themselves, but taste affirmation is a process of conquering others with details.
  Therefore, a watch that has both wealth and taste must have a very high ‘comprehensive quality’: it should come from a very dynamic high-end brand, and the quality is among the best in the industry; it is not a style that is everywhere, low-key but others at a glance You can recognize it; the design is not too exaggerated, the material shows strength; expensive but definitely rational consumption, people who are proficient in watches think that it has a certain collection value. If you can go further than this benchmark and share a legendary story as an extension, you will become the absolute protagonist in this social occasion.
  Among the many masterpieces of Blancpain, ‘the creator of classic timepieces’, if you want to choose the watch that best fits the theme of ‘rich and rich’, Blancpain Villeret classic series that has won the ‘HauteTime Best Watch of the Year’ Carrousel Moon Phase Watch, the first selected.

Rare in the world, precious
  ‘One Minute Flying Caruso’ is the proud invention of Blancpain, and it is also a super-complex mechanical watch function rarer than the tourbillon. Carloso was born to offset the gravity and make the clocks move more accurately. However, due to the high cost and complicated technology, they rarely appeared in the market. After the Carrousel function has been sealed for more than a century, Blancpain launched the ‘one-minute flying Carrousel’ in 2008, once again pushing this large complex function to the forefront of watchmaking. Blancpain groundbreakingly increased the speed of the traditional Carloso 52-minute revolution to the same one-minute revolution as the tourbillon, giving Caruso an excellent viewing performance comparable to the tourbillon. In 2008, Blancpain’s masterpiece ‘Qian Kun Caruso’ watch was permanently collected by the Palace Museum, proving that Caruso’s preciousness is rare and infinite collection value.

The General Trend Long Power Reserve Is Becoming The Norm

For a long time, the movement of mechanical movements was limited to two days. With the lapse of time and technological progress, its autonomous performance is gradually improving, and now there is no need to wind it up again. Continuous operation for three, eight, or even ten days is no longer a patent of the elite circle. This is a major trend in the watchmaking industry: the longest power reserve continues to climb to new heights, and the records of the past are successively broken; at the same time, the types of movements with 70 to 240 hours of power reserve are becoming more abundant and the price is getting more and more People-friendly, moving towards a simpler, broader and more practical direction.
   For a long time, the 45-hour power reserve is standard. It is less than two days from the full-string state to the end of kinetic energy, and the accuracy of the last few hours is often unsatisfactory. After being full last Friday evening, it won’t last until the next Monday morning. The need to rewind at the beginning of the work week is an important psychological reference point. The power reserve is too short, which means that when gardening or sports activities on the weekend, the wearer also needs to take care of his watch.
Hamilton watch with 80-hour power reserve automatic movement, affordable and very practical

Chopard watch with 01.01-C basic movement, 60 hours power reserve

   Watches equipped with a power reserve of two days or more are often expensive and sometimes even expensive. With 72 hours of Lange, the eight-day power reserve of Chopard, Panerai and Henry Moser, the movement is exquisite in workmanship and excellent in performance, yet the price is prohibitive.
Bvlgari Finissimo ultra-thin movement, only 2.23 mm thick, 70 hours power reserve

Hublot Big Bang Ferrari titanium carbon fiber watch with Unico movement, 72 hours power reserve

   But things have changed now. The first is the advent of a new generation of movements with 60 to 70 hours of power reserve. And not all movements are expensive. The Hamilton H30 movement can provide 80 hours of power reserve, which is very affordable. The self-made movement MT5621 introduced by Tudor also has a power reserve of 70 hours. Prior to this, Chopard was also 01.01 The -C basic movement is equipped with a 60-hour power reserve. While successfully expanding the movement’s mainspring capacity, it insisted on reasonable pricing so that customers would not be left aside.
Tudor watch with MT5621 movement, 70 hours power reserve

Zenith watch with Elite 6150 ultra-thin automatic movement, power reserve up to 100 hours

   This trend also extends to the high-end market. Hublot’s unique Unico movement directly increases the power reserve to 72 hours. The Bulgari-made Finissimo ultra-thin movement is only 2.23 mm thick and has a power reserve of up to 70 hours. Zenith’s new 6150 movement, equipped with a dual barrel, provides 100 hours of power reserve. Although not cheap, it represents a key step in the evolution of Zenith Elite movements for more than 20 years, and it also reflects the inevitable trend of the entire industry.
Panerai watch with P.5000 movement, eight days power reserve

Oris 110 movement power reserve for ten days, reasonable price, bring the biggest surprise

   The trend continues to spread, Panerai P.5000 movement achieves eight-day power reserve, strong applicability, and the price is comparable to models that can only provide three-day power reserve. When the biggest surprise came to Pride, the 110 movement with a single barrel has a power reserve of up to ten days and the price is very attractive. I wonder if this is enough to cause more high-end brands to pay attention to reconsidering the pricing strategy of such movement watches?

Say You Know Tudor. You Need To Know These Antique Watches.

In recent years, more and more young consumers have come into contact with the Tudor brand. The Tudor antique watch market has ushered in a booming development and its prices have risen accordingly. In this article, we will take stock of the antique watches produced in the history of Tudor.
Marine Nationale MilSubs

Tudor Oyster Prince Submariner Marine Nationale 9401 (1977)

   Many countries’ armed forces are equipped with Tudor Submariners watches, including Argentina, South Africa, Jamaica, the United States, and the most famous French Navy (Marine Nationale-MN). The French Navy has played a key role in the development of the Tudor Submariners. This root can be traced back to the earliest Submariners 7922 Big Crown watch.
   The most famous and sought after Marine Nationale watch is equipped with a blue dial and ‘snowflake’ hands, without date display, usually with a grey fabric NATO strap. Marine Nationale MilSubs watches on the antique market are mostly sold by government auctions or veterans. General auctions will provide veteran identification, or the serial number can be checked against the watchmaker’s Navy watch service books.
Price range: £ 2,500-4,500
Year of production: 1950-1980s
Main models: 7016, 7021, 9401
‘Big Block’ Chronograph

Tudor Prince Oysterdate Big Block 9430 (1976)

   It can be said that Tudor has inserted Rolex’s innovative and experimental wings (Tudor dial color and overall style, compared to conservative Rolex design), automatic chronograph is a typical example. In 1976, Tudor launched the ‘Big Block’ Chronograph chronograph (9430/0) equipped with three laps; in contrast, Rolex only automated the Daytona in 1988 and adopted It is Zenith movement.
   The name ‘Big Block’ is derived from the heavy case that houses the automatic rotor. In fact, until the introduction of the Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller, the ‘Big Block’ was the largest watch in the Wilsdorf Group case. There are also some variations of this watch, such as the Monte Carlo dial, which are popular with collectors. The watch comes with three different types of bezels: a stainless steel speedometer, a plastic speedometer, and a rotating bezel with hour markers.
Price range: £ 3,000-£ 6,000
Year of production: late 1970s-early 1980s
The main model: 9430
Prince Oysterdate Chrono-Time

Tudor Oysterdate Chrono-Time

   For watch fans who do not have a comprehensive understanding of Tudor history, they have never seen or even heard of Chrono-Time. In the 1970s, the integrated bracelet design, defined by Gerald Genta and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Patek Philippe Nautilus, became popular.
   The Rolex stood still, but Tudor did not hesitate. The latter introduced a series of watches with a new case shape and integrated bracelet design. The most famous example is Ranger 2. Another sports watch with the same shape is Chrono-Time. The Oysterdate Chrono-Time is available in both stainless steel and gold-plated versions, and it has a two-way rotating bezel similar to Submariner. With a diameter of 38 mm, this watch is suitable for both sports and formal wear, in line with the Rolex Turnograph Datejust. The most common ones are blue or maroon dials and bezels, but there are some rare variants.
Price range: 1,000-£ 2,000
Year of production: 1976
Main model: 9121/1
Ranger

Tudor Oyster Prince Ranger 7995

   For collectors, collecting antique Ranger watches may be one of the biggest challenges; but if you can really find an original watch, it is also one of the biggest rewards. What makes the collection of Tudor Ranger so difficult? The main reason is that until the end, Tudor did not give the Ranger its own reference number, but chose to use the case and movement of the standard Rolex Oyster.
   This has led to counterfeit dials and hands being placed in genuine watches. Most of what I see on the Internet are fakes, or after second-hand modification. Wanting to identify and collect genuine original watches requires a certain amount of knowledge and patience.
Price range: 1,000-2,500 pounds
Year of production: 1969-1987
Main models: 7991/0, 7996/0, 90020
Homeplate Chronograph

Tudor Homeplate 7031

   Homeplate 7031/2 is to the Tudor chronograph, just like Paul Newman to Rolex Daytona. The Tudor Homeplate was introduced in 1970. It is equipped with a manual winding movement and is the first of three chronograph series with a colored dial design (collectively called Monte Carlo, whose appearance is reminiscent of a Monaco gaming table) . It is called Homeplate because of the shape of the hour mark and the home plate on the baseball field.
   This watch has both stainless steel and bakelite bezels, as well as gray and black dials, of which the black dial version is very rare, and only six are currently known. Tudor did design a prototype 7033 with a rotating bezel, but it has never been put into commercial production. The Kai Cheng Chronograph introduced in 2010 was inspired by this.
Price range: £ 10,000-£ 20,000
Year of production: Early 1970s
Main models: 7031, 7032, 7033
Submariner 7928

Tudor Submariner 7928 watch

   The Submariner 7928 is one of Tudor’s oldest models. This watch was launched in 1959 and is equipped with a modified Fleurier caliber 390 movement. Originally, the Submariner 7928 was equipped with a ‘square’ crown shoulder. It was very difficult to loosen the crown, so it was later changed to a ‘pointer’ crown shoulder (PCG). The last batch of Tudor Submariner 7928 watches were equipped with round crown shoulders. The evolution of the case shape is generally consistent with that of the Rolex Submariner watch.
   A key part of the collectability of Submariner watches (including Rolex and Tudor) is the dial. In the past ten years of production operation, the dial of the Tudor Submariner 7928 watch mainly has five versions. The first and most collectible version is the Mk 1 dial with gold-plated indexes and hour markers.
Price range: 2,000-4,500 pounds

 In 1906, at a time when manufacturing was booming, three visionary manufacturing pioneers—engineer August Eberstein, businessman Alfred Nehemias, and stationery entrepreneur Claus Voß—come to the United States to prepare for a grand vision. They invented a writing instrument using leak-proof technology and a piston converter. Engineer Eberstein is extremely visionary and has been studying micro-machine innovations in the United States and Britain for many years. His unremitting pursuit of outstanding performance, innovation and perfect quality has become the core spirit and driving force of Montblanc. The entrepreneur, Claus Voß, is very business-minded and actively pursues innovative technologies with unique development potential. By chance, Claus and Eberstein knew each other. He immediately noticed Eberstein’s engineering creativity and passion, and was convinced that he would become his best partner to complete the blueprint for the enterprise.

 In 1910, the three founders borrowed the name of Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Europe, and officially named the company Montblanc, symbolizing the unremitting pursuit of the highest quality. This dedication to perfect quality has enabled Montblanc to continue to create masterpieces, explore inspiration and develop advanced craftsmanship, and has become the core value and driving force of the brand since its establishment.

 The early 20th century was a golden development moment for reform and innovation. This period marked the beginning of a new horizon, especially the transatlantic transportation that promoted the development of international business and cultural relations. Thanks to many revolutionary new inventions, such as the rise of ship steam engines and advances in navigation methods, the development of maritime transport has achieved a huge breakthrough. Passenger routes compete for the prestigious Trans-Atlantic Grand Prix-the Blue Ribbon Award. Taking into account the different routes of transoceanic vessels, the awards are based on average speed and are based on the fastest speed when traveling west along the challenging Gulf Stream. This award has attracted passengers and shipping companies seeking the fastest and strongest ships. The blue ribbon has thus become a symbol of honor and highest achievement. Its spirit is carried forward in the new Montblanc 4810 series, demonstrating top performance and excellent timepiece quality.

 In this pioneering era, major port cities have entered the most vigorous development period and become the central hub for trade, cultural exchanges and reform and innovation. Hamburg Port is one of them. As Germany’s largest port, the Port of Hamburg was quickly hailed as Germany’s ‘gateway to the world.’ As a result, Hamburg’s international trade has developed vigorously, and has become Germany’s independent luxury ocean-going passenger ship manufacturing site. The ships it built were quickly recognized and regarded as the world’s most important modern carrier ships.

Second, the frame weight is extremely small, so more accurate timing and better isochronism can be obtained. Sex. Among them, this structure has 4 adjustable gold screws and 14 fixing screws, and the diameter of these 18 screws is only 9.7 mm, which plays a very important role for the balance wheel, which makes precision and traditional watchmaking technology obtain Further improvement.

In addition, the entire movement structure is only 4.5 mm high, showing the extraordinary quality of its complex technology.
 The tourbillon frame displays the seconds with a red arrow and is equipped with a practical quick stop seconds device. The function of the device is closely related to the design of the brake lever. The brake lever stops the large screw balance with 18 screws and restarts whenever necessary. In order to obtain the correct angle of the end of the brake lever, the designer delves into the best geometry and dynamics, so that the user can set the time to the second, ensuring that the movement is restarted immediately. Without affecting the tourbillon frame, the quick stop seconds device can stop the balance wheel instantly, so it can prevent the balance wheel from continuing to swing and affect the accuracy of the watch.
