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.

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.

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.

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
Year of production: 1959-1967

Montblanc Launches The 4810 Series In Tribute To The Golden Age Of Transatlantic

The Montblanc 4810 series debuted in 2006 and is the brand’s best-selling work. This year, on the occasion of the 110th anniversary of the brand, Montblanc follows the essence of the series and celebrates this century with the new 4810 series. The new collection respects the brand’s exquisite and long-standing watchmaking tradition, presents an outstanding, elegant and sporty design. It reinterprets the popular 4810 series with advanced complication watches, providing modern travelers with reliable and accurate timepieces.
 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. Mont Blanc has an altitude of 4810 meters, and this number has always been regarded as a symbol of the brand. Today, the new 4810 series has given this number a new lease of life, symbolizing the brand’s founder’s pursuit of excellence when he started this wonderful journey 110 years ago.
 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. Montblanc is firmly rooted in this era of great change, and launched the new Montblanc 4810 series with both technology and aesthetics to commemorate this important period.
 To celebrate the 110th anniversary of the brand and commemorate the golden age that gave birth to its growth, Montblanc has launched a number of unique new 4810 series timepieces, and launched three self-developed complex function movements, namely external tourbillon stop seconds movements.

Montblanc External Tourbillon Slim Watch
 The new Montblanc external tourbillon ultra-thin watch as the 110th anniversary of the great contribution, the brand patented external tourbillon complex features, while equipped with a quick stop seconds device. Compared with the traditional tourbillon structure, the external tourbillon has better performance. First, the external tourbillon frame is separated from the balance wheel. 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.
 The barrel is built into the main splint and has a 50-hour power reserve. Its position in the movement structure demonstrates the high-level R & D and testing capabilities that pursue the best balance between the barrel, the rotor and the balance wheel during the watchmaking process.
 The external tourbillon self-winding movement MB 29.21 is equipped with a new micro-oscillator decorated with a fan-shaped “Geneva ripple” pattern. The sapphire crystal back cover gives a clear overview of the movement structure, while the traditional rotor usually covers half of the movement. 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. All functions and operations can be controlled by the crown at 3 o’clock, and the dial on the dial can tell the wearer the corresponding position of the crown setting: position 1 is used to wind the movement, and position 2 is used to set Time and quick stop seconds device.
 The new 4810 series uses a 42 mm case with a slightly larger diameter and a total height of 10.14 mm. The case has been meticulously adjusted in the design, such as a thinner bezel and a satin finish in the middle. Other design improvements include a chamfered finish at the vertical top, which forms a perfect arc at the bottom to ensure better wrist comfort and a more refined look.
 The upper part of the silver-white dial is decorated with a striking Montblanc hexagonal white star engraved design, and the lower part is a ‘Geneva ripple’ pattern, which sets off the delicate external tourbillon structure at 6 o’clock. The dial is exquisite and noble, with elegant rose gold-plated Roman numerals and sword-shaped hands covered with white Super LumiNova® non-radioluminescent material, which is extremely legible even in the dark. A special minute scale is added to the outer ring of the dial. The red number ’60’ is at 12 o’clock, making it easy for the wearer to read the hour.
 Montblanc 4810 series ultra-thin external tourbillon watch, with black alligator leather strap, contrasts with warm rose gold case and rose gold inlay details on the dial. This watch has passed the rigorous 500-hour quality test of the Montblanc laboratory, and has carried out more than 500 hours of real-life simulations.

Jiejia’s New Traditional Series Launched

The launch of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new traditional series integrates large-scale complex functions in the traditional sense. The first function is astronomical information, the second function is the timekeeping system, and the third function is an extra hand, usually a chronograph, or it may be other functions, such as a tourbillon.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication
Even the top brands are not always able to make complex models of this level. Moreover, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s works have surpassed others in every function.
Is it a traditional tourbillon or a new type of caroline? Since the outbreak in 1989, many experts have been arguing tirelessly. In modern watchmaking, whether or not to revolve around the four wheels has become the only criterion for judging whether it is Caruso or a tourbillon, because it has been subverted by Blancpain. Existing criteria for determining pedigree depend on whether the institution has a power source directly driven by the barrel. In other words, if the tourbillon gets stuck in the frame, it will stop running immediately; but Carloso can still make up for it, although the error is already very large.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Tourbillon is between traditional and modern. First of all, it is a pure tourbillon, which relies on the fourth gear of the drive train to drive the frame, and has a fixed cross bridge, which rotates concentrically with the balance wheel. But at the same time of his autobiography, it is relative to the needs of the real solar revolution. This is beyond tradition, so we judge it to be a relative tourbillon. Not only is it used to decorate the astrological calendar, but it is also used to calculate the stellar day, rather than the general timing. The stellar day is about 4 minutes less than the solar day. There is a zodiac constellation chart on the dial. The outer layer of the chart has a small rotating sun. The constellation mark and month mark surround the constellation map, which is used to display standard time, which is the average solar time.
Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication realizes celestial body movement through a three-layer complex mechanism under the dial. The frame of the flying tourbillon is cantilevered and is supported at the bottom instead of by a splint between the top and bottom. The entire mechanism is made of lightweight titanium, and the silicon escapement is clearly visible. Compared with the traditional steel, the inertia of the material is reduced, and the operating efficiency of the entire movement is increased by 15%. In fact, Jaeger-LeCoultre has reproduced the tourbillon system, so why bother to research and develop silicon parts in order to be more precise? The answer is very simple, because it has the function of displaying astronomical time. This function should not be underestimated. It must be extremely accurate to do it!
The ‘Crystal Spring’ produced by Jaeger-LeCoultre in 2007 has greatly improved the brand’s level of percussion, and has become a work of turmoil. Generally, the gong adopts the vibration of the case to increase the volume. But Jaeger-LeCoultre’s elite watchmakers used a different ‘megaphone’. The integrated gong reed vibration device is fixed below the sapphire crystal, because sapphire has the fastest wave speed of all the media that can be used for watchmaking (except titanium). Therefore, the vibration of the metal strike is quickly dissipated through the sapphire crystal, which improves the efficiency of sound generation.
Second, we can also see two non-stop hammers on the back. The watchmaker invented a special device called ‘tr & eacute; buchet hammer (balance hammer)’ to improve the sound quality of percussion. Unlike traditional clock hammers, they designed a two-axis system connected to a moving arm. When working, the bell hammer accelerates to strike the gong, and the moving arm is released almost simultaneously, helping the bell hammer to accelerate the strike. This method uses almost 80% of the striking energy, while the traditional clock hammer system can only use 10% to 30% of the energy.
The melodious timekeeping voice conveys not only the rhythm of time, but also the charm of works of art under the foundation of technology that transcends everything.

Swatch 51 Introduces Metal Series Mechanical Watches

Must admit that there is some tacit understanding among men. When they entered the vanity market of society, the ‘mechanical complex’ in their nature made them anxious to find a loyal comrade in arms.

When considering how to formally introduce Swatch’s ‘STEM51 IRONY’ to Swatch, we randomly asked 51 men the same question through different channels: in the era of smartphones, you will also long for a piece of Is a ‘legendary’ mechanical watch?
The men’s response was straightforward, diverse, and coincident. The new generation of men still has a high degree of character, demeanor and persistence on the mechanical watch. Let us realize that they are invited to “join Swatch’s machinery together. ‘Revolution’ will be a wonderful event. We are honored to share with you today the resonance that these men only understand, and the legendary mystery of the 51 metal series of installation.

I. What is a mechanical watch?
In the most popular terms, mechanical watches do not use batteries and rely entirely on mechanical principles to complete timekeeping. The mechanical watch corresponds to a quartz watch, and the differences between the two can be distinguished at a glance, even if they do not have complicated related knowledge: In addition to the most intuitive ‘AUTOMATIC’ words, the running time of a mechanical watch is continuous and uninterrupted, while the The second hand is one tick at a time. The reason is that the movement of the mechanical watch relies on the internal precision mechanical devices to move the whole body; and the quartz watch relies on the vibration of the quartz plate to push the second hand forward. Objectively, there is no absolute difference between mechanical watches and quartz watches, but in the eyes of mechanical enthusiasts, a legendary mechanical watch has a great heritage and expression of classics, culture and watchmaking technology, which is more secretive. The strong ‘mechanical complex’ carried by mechanical watches.

II. The character of a gentleman, the ‘mechanical expression knot’ of a man
The ‘mechanical expression knot’ will gradually increase with changes in age, experience and social status. For men, the awakening of this complex usually occurs between the ages of 25 and 35, and it always seems that there is something missing on the wrist. When facing the first formal watch in life, their choices focused on mechanical watches. It is true that the confidence and conquest of high-end watches that rely on sophisticated machinery can never be replaced by mobile phones and quartz watches. It can be said that owning a mechanical watch is a sign that a man is moving towards maturity and a wider world.

The sprouting of mechanical expression knots is probably inseparable from the nature of men who love disassembly and assembly and enjoy the joy of manipulation and control since childhood. Those tiny and delicate mechanical devices always seem to have an inexplicable appeal to men. They firmly believe that the graceful experience brought by meticulous mechanical operation is an indescribable sexiness. They firmly believe that the mechanical operation of strict silk stitching is more emotionally precise and controllable than the quartz crystal. Taking device 51 metal series as an example, the wearer can see the escapement and swing of the automatic rotor through the see-through watch bottom cover. Wouldn’t it be a respectable thing to be able to pack such a complicated process into two small pieces of glass? A mechanical watch is never an industrial product. It is a work of art, a ‘jewelry’ for men, and the most indispensable ‘high-end toy’ after a boy has evolved into a man.
III. What does ’51’ mean? Subversion and innovation in 30 years!
From the new generation of men who love mechanical watches, you can find more common features: youth, personality, appearance, life quality and career development are in a period of rapid rise. For daily accompanying accessories, usually follow the guidelines of few and fine. In other words, this watch must be present at business occasions, but also complemented by daily leisure, without losing identity and taste. It can be said that before the introduction of the 51 metal series, there has never been a mechanical watch that fits the demands of these young high-quality sportsmen. Not to mention the surprising pricing that made the legendary Swiss mechanical watch so accessible for the first time.

Inheriting the ingenious ingenuity of the previous Swatch traditional mechanical series, the 51 metal series mechanical watch introduced this time has achieved leapfrogging and innovation in technology and design. The mechanical movement module is still fixed by a central screw. It has an extraordinary 90-hour kinetic energy storage, 17 patent applications … and the common characteristics of all 51 series of Swatch devices-only 51 parts Into a mechanical movement, the parts of a general mechanical watch are at least twice his!

The number ’51’ is also related to the first Swatch quartz watch in 1983. In 1983, Swatch shocked the innovation of the watch industry by optimizing the original hundreds of quartz movement components to only 51; in 2013, this subversive innovation was upgraded to mechanical watches; in October 2016 , Swatch grandly launched seven devices 51 metal series mechanical watches! Becoming the world’s first fully automatic assembly and production of mechanical watches is a milestone in the watch industry’s technological innovation.
IV. It’s an entry model and an IT Watch!
In addition to legendary roots and advanced technology, the device 51 metal series has also attracted attention as the ‘IT Watch’ in the legendary Swiss mechanical watch camp because of its reasonable price, young positioning and extraordinary personality. It can be your mechanical watch. The first watch in the field that really comes into the room can also be the trendy choice in your collection to show the fashionable and young attitude.

As one of the representatives of Swiss watches, the advantages of the 51 metal series movement are very prominent: 90-hour kinetic energy reserve is twice that of traditional mechanical watches, which means that it is not winded on weekends. Love watches run as usual on Mondays, and the original Swiss-made watches are even higher. As a symbol of quality, the travel accuracy is also controlled to + -10 seconds per day, which is almost negligible. At the same time, the overall design of device 51 metal series is smooth and smooth. The style of strap made of 316L medical steel and leather material is combined with innovative cutting-edge watchmaking technology to create a series of outstanding designs with bold and modern design and full of unlimited power. There are seven designs including ‘device · bright arrow’, ‘device · flying’, ‘device · earth’, ‘device · north’, and ‘device · soul’, which will hit you.

After more than a hundred years leading the revival of the Swiss watchmaking industry, this time, Swatch first presented a metal series mechanical watch, which became the starting point for the general public to contact high-end mechanical watches. If you also have mechanical expression knots, if you dream of having a perfect entry-level mechanical watch, if you want to have more common topics with the outstanding men you long for … come to install 51 metal series to find you Style, join Swatch’s mechanical revolution together!
