Parmigiani Ovale ‘zoom’ Freely

The Ovale watch series is an innovative journey of Parmigiani, and this watch, like many other models, originates from the restored watch. The oval antique pocket watch created by the British jeweller Vardon & Stedman with retractable hands is a true heritage of watchmaking. It was restored in 1997 at Parmigiani in Fleurier. The design of this pocket watch is wild: charming ovals and magical complications. Two retractable hands can be extended along the oval contour of the case. When passing through a number of time scales, it shows the passage of time. With the little-known complex device of the scaler, this pocket watch seems to have life, telling us the secret of time.

The highlight of the new Ovale Pantographe is undoubtedly the complex device of the scaler that controls the zoom of the hands and represents the passage of time vividly

The new Ovale watch and the prestigious scaler complex represent two iconic features of Parmigiani. First of all, the brand’s complete independence, which is reflected in its vertical production facilities, and enables Parmigiani to remanufactured truly unique large and complex device components and create shapes that are most faithful to the original. The second characteristic is the inseparable connection between Parmigiani and the restoration of watches and clocks. The extraordinary timepieces made by the predecessors are an invaluable combination of knowledge and craftsmanship, telling us the importance of superb craftsmanship and providing an inexhaustible source of inspiration for contemporary watches. Just like oval antique pocket watches and its modern models, Parmigiani’s restoration work is an ongoing dialogue between historical masterpieces and future watchmaking explorations.
Scaler complex
The highlight of this new Ovale Pantographe is undoubtedly the complex device of the scaler that controls the zoom of the hands and represents the passage of time vividly. The pointer is mounted on the scaler, a device that gives it a telescopic function, and uses the principle of the length x to specify the coefficient to achieve movement at the farther or closer points of the ellipse. At the specific mechanical level, the cam located in the center of the movement determines the length of the entire hand and will stretch X times. In other words, this central cam measurement provides the information needed to move the hands and adjust the length of the hands according to the contour of the dial. This orbit and telescope have been carefully calculated to form a perfect, harmonious ellipse for the movement of the pointer. In addition, computer simulations ensure that the minute hand will never be shorter than the hour hand after the telescope, that is, there will be no confusion such as 12:15 and 3 o’clock.

 The basic movement used by Ovale Pantographe is the earliest movement created by the Parmigiani brand: the PF110 movement specially designed for the Hebdomadaire series. With the advent of retractable pointer modules, a new movement called PF111 combines a retractor on a manually wound movement with an 8-day power reserve

The beauty of the oval
The new Parmigiani Ovale watch series comes in several models, but all come with a unique oval case component. Michelle. Mr. Parmigiani and his team have conducted extensive research to design a perfect oval that is harmoniously proportioned and ergonomic. The main challenge in the research and development process is how to inject masculine temperament into this rounded case with feminine femininity. The oval watch series also achieves a perfect balance in gender, which is due to a number of key decisions in appearance.

Ovale Pantographe is available in rose and platinum

The first is to choose the oval shape. This decision avoids a pure oval like the handle of a basket, for example, an oval that stretches outward and looks more masculine. Afterwards, the ideal ratio must be determined between the watch case components and the bezel so that it can echo the relatively thick profile of the watch. To this end, we found a dividing line between the two major parts, creating an elegant image with sufficient height, adding a finishing touch to the rounded shape. In the end, the product has a sharp appearance through the orderly chamfering of the surfaces. This process is used to create angles and straighten rounded lines, and the resulting light effect creates a sharp look, injecting masculinity into Sona. The watch uses the same design logic as the Bugatti Supersport watch. This round watch also adds straight lines and angles, creating a light effect that makes the product more refined and gives it a masculinity. Therefore, like a telescopic pointer, the design of the Ovale series is a delicate and balanced combination of arcs and straight lines, reflecting the harmonious beauty of various styles and pretentious elegance.

Omega Tape Hippocampus Can Still Be Fired Without Frying?

It is not too late to get to the topic. I originally planned to write a complicated watch today, but in the end I didn’t stop the ‘temptation’ of Omega and decided to write the hippocampus. Omega is one of the watches I like to write very much. Various complex watches look interesting, but it doesn’t make sense to write them because there are too few people to buy them. Omega mainstream watch is right next to your brothers. If you like it, you can buy it immediately. I wrote about the new 2017 version of the Seahorse Aqua Terra (referred to as the Hippocampus AT) before, but at that time, the new version of the Seahorse AT was just announced, and it was not even on the official website at that time. The 2017 version of the hippocampus is now available, and Omega has added a tape version to the new version of Aqua Terra (the tape version is also the main model and advertising model). So, I want to talk to you about what I know.

Omega’s new hippocampal Aqua Terra tape version.
This time I want to change the order, let’s talk about market conditions first.

   As the main model of Omega, the hottest and most important one of the Omega 2017 hippocampus is the blue tape hippocampus. Before the 2017 hippocampus AT remodeling, the hippocampus AT was mainly two versions, steel belts and belts, and tape was mainly used in the marine universe. We all know that tape is generally used on professional diving watches. This time, Omega equipped the hippocampus AT with tape to make the hippocampus AT look more sporty (note that it just looks because the hippocampus AT is not a professional diving watch). Blue needle and blue belt, the value of the burst table.
   Because the new watch Haima just launched, the number is still relatively small. Omega dealer counter, we can see the new version of the hippocampus, steel belt, belt, blue tape version is usually out of stock. A small amount of blue tape version is mainly concentrated in Omega’s direct stores. Which stores are directly managed by Omega? Take Beijing as an example. Wangfujing apm, Dongfang Xintiandi and SKP’s Omega are all directly operated stores. Although there are many blue tape posters for the hippocampus, the watches that actually appear in the store are not particularly many. Interested brothers can go straight to the Omega-operated store. One detail to note is that the Omega Blue Tape Hippocampus AT also has different color matching (gray disk blue needle, blue disk gray needle, blue disk blue needle), there are blue second hands, there are ordinary color second hands, please pay attention to distinguish.

Omega’s new version of the seahorse Aqua Terra.
   The above is the situation of the specialty store, and the following I will talk about the situation of the secondary market. Although I am also a fan, Omega is one of my most respected watches. Compared with Rolex, Omega’s most generous place is the stable and adequate supply, and does not engage in Rolex’s ‘hunger marketing’. Omega is very friendly to the broad masses of the people, we can buy whatever you like. Unlike Rolex, ‘there are no watches in the store, there are no watches in the store’, these are not a thing for players at all, but for the general public, it is difficult to buy watches in Rolex stores. Currently outside the store, I have also seen that some watchmakers have received the Omega Blue Tape Seahorse AT, and I find the market to be good. The domestic price of the blue tape hippocampus is 40500, which is cheaper than the previous generation hippocampus. Under the factors of exchange rate and discount (because it is a new watch, there is no second-hand factor), the price is good, although it is a new watch and popular watch of Omega, the market is higher than the general situation of Omega (more expensive than the previous generation of steel belt 2 , 3,000 yuan), but it is still easy to get started (players who are familiar with the Omega market and experienced, in fact, without me, you can calculate the approximate market by yourself).
Let’s take a look at this piece of tape.

   There are three types of tape. One is that, like Blancpain 50 噚 and Omega’s ‘Dark Sea Black’, the inner layer is rubber, but a layer of canvas is wrapped on the outside, and it is not visible from the surface. One is like Hublot. Although it is tape, it is embossed with a crocodile leather pattern on the outside, and it looks very similar to a crocodile belt. The last type is pure tape such as the new watch hippocampus AT. The first two have a more formal feel because of the extra processing of the tape (wrapping canvas, embossing), which can be convenient for formal dressing. Pure tapes such as the Omega New Seahorse are generally used for professional diving watches, such as the Ocean Universe and IWC Aquatimer, which have a strong sense of movement.

A rubber strap for the new Omega Seamaster AT.
   The blue tape of the new version of the Omega Haima AT advertising model, the actual color I feel darker than some pictures. It’s beautiful to get started. A tape can generally be used for 2 or 3 years. The price of this Omega tape is okay, and it costs more than 1,000 yuan for one. The strap itself is a consumable, so change it.

Omega always looks more luxurious than its peers.
   I don’t know why, every time I hold Omega, I always feel that this watch brings us a more luxurious sense than its price. I always feel that Omega looks more luxurious than similar watches. Later, I thought about it myself, and I found that Omega’s treatment of the case and the dial is more careful, so it makes people look very luxurious. Watch case processing is nothing more than two, brushed and polished. Many watch cases are brushed over a large area, and the entire watch is matte and does not appear shiny. For other watches, the overall polishing, although the watch looks very bright, but because of the large polishing area, it is very easy to leave scratches and show old. Omega’s new version of the hippocampus AT is a brushed side of the case and a polished bezel. The side drawing, in fact, a very important role is to prevent scratching (this is a point raised by a foreigner, I think, it makes sense), because the drawing is matte, it is not obvious after scratching, and it is not easy to appear old. The bezel and lugs are polished and the watch looks bright. And because the bezel of the hippocampus AT is relatively wide, and the lugs are also polished, the polished area is large and the sense of luxury is strong. In addition, please note that the new version of the hippocampus AT has two sizes, 41 and 38. The previous hippocampus was 41.5 and 38.5, and the size of the new version has been slightly reduced.

Various versions of Omega’s new version of the hippocampus AT, we can see the effect of various straps.
   In addition to the case, Omega’s decoration on the dial is in place, and the dial is patterned. A major change in the new version of the hippocampus AT is to change the vertical dial of the previous dial to horizontal. In addition, the new version of the Haima AT puts the calendar at 6 o’clock, so the face is very balanced. Omega’s disc texture mimics the ‘yacht deck’ style. In fact, as long as we compare ourselves, we can find that Omega often has relatively complicated dial decoration in watches of the same price and level, whether it is deck stripes or water ripples. The disc stripes and three-dimensional triangular time scales make the watch flicker when light enters. Some watches of the same level are not as luxurious as Omega because they use a lacquered dial and printed hour markers. The dial is relatively simple and not conducive to reflecting light.
   The reasonable combination of polished and brushed case and the relatively complicated dial decoration make Omega stand out from other luxury watches of the same class.

Omega has completely replaced the 8900 movement on the new version of the hippocampus AT.

Calibre 8900 used by Omega’s new hippocampus AT.
   To be honest, the Omega movement has been updated quickly in the past two years, and more new numbers have been used. We know that the Omega Haima AT has always used the 8500 movement. After Omega popularized the 15,000 Gaussian anti-magnetic coaxial technology, although the Haima AT also upgraded to the coaxial coaxial movement, the movement number has not changed, it is still 8500. In the new version of the hippocampus AT, Omega changed the movement number and started using the 8900 movement. Prior to this, Omega Zunba used 8901, the ocean space ‘deep sea black’ GMT used 8906. The configuration of the 8900 movement used in the new version of the hippocampus AT is not significantly different from the Zhizheng coaxial version 8500. Omega is likely to use the new movement number directly on the new version of the hippocampus AT, forming a difference from the old model. One can tell at a glance. You do n’t need to pay attention to the words “master co axial” on the surface, the difference is the 15000 Gaussian antimagnetic 8500 or the ordinary 8500. The configuration of the 8900 is as follows, with a diameter of 29 mm, 39 gem shafts, a swing frequency of 25200 times per hour, and a power of 60 hours. , Antimagnetic 15000 Gauss.
Which rivals will the new Omega Haima AT meet?

Jaeger-LeCoultre

Rolex Oyster Perpetual

Tudor Golden Axe Needle
   The official price of Omega’s new version of the hippocampus AT is 41200 for steel chain, 40500 for belt, and 40500 for tape. At this price we will encounter many luxury watches. Such as Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new master, and even Tudor’s golden axe needle. The public price of these watches is more than 40,000 yuan. Some brands have a higher positioning than Omega, and some have the same level as Omega, or are lower than Omega. In any case, we have to make compromises for every penny. For example, Jaeger-LeCoultre has a higher brand positioning and a luxurious all-gold automatic tourbillon, so it has to make concessions on the board. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual has all the features of a Rolex classic Oyster watch and white gold hour markers, but has to cancel the calendar and cancel the fine adjustments on the buckle. At the same price, Omega can always bring us more, brand status, watch decoration, movement configuration, have not compromised, and maintain sufficient supply. This is my favorite place for Omega.

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.
  From the development to the birth of a mechanical watch, in addition to its timekeeping mission, there are two other labels that follow the shadow: one is a symbol of wealth, and the other is a declaration of taste. 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.

Blancpain Villeret Classic Carrousel Moon Phase Watch in Red Gold
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.

Blancpain One-minute Flight Carrousel
Classic moon phase, rejuvenated
  If Caruso’s function is to make Blancpain stand out in the history of mechanical watchmaking, the moon phase is Blancpain’s ‘housekeeping skill’. The moon phase was another complex function that was buried. It was re-interpreted by Blancpain in the early 1980s, and was reborn. Under the then ‘Quartz Storm’, Blancpain’s move brought the world’s attention back again. The field of mechanical watchmaking, thus leading the renaissance of mechanical watchmaking. Blancpain has the complete moon phase family in the world’s top watchmaking industry, with five classic facial expressions, which is Blancpain’s ‘second logo’.

Subtleties, glimpses of skill

The requirements for manual polishing and sanding are extremely high. The thin and thin shape of the willow needles “narrow front and back and middle wide” must be hand-crafted, and hollowing out on this basis is even more difficult. Warm and jade-like large open flame enamel plates, elegant Roman numeral scales are hand-painted and fired. The entire firing process must be completed at a high temperature of 800 degrees Celsius or higher to maintain the color transparency and long-lasting … The triple functions of moon, moon phase and date display, under the premise of high watch stability requirements, it also has a power reserve of up to 5 days, giving the wearer full confidence.

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.
