Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Heritage Series Rock Grey Dial Perpetual Calendar

The new Patrimony Heritage Series perpetual calendar pink gold model at the 2017 Geneva International High-level Watch and Clock Fair (SIHH) uses a new rock gray dial. This fine watchmaking classic is equipped with the legendary 1120 QP movement. This ultra-thin self-winding mechanical movement demonstrates the consistent elegance and slimness of the Patrimony heritage series.

   The 1120 QP movement developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin drives the hour and minute hands, the moon phase display at 6 o’clock, the day display at 9 o’clock, the date display at 3 o’clock, and the 12 o’clock position. Perpetual calendar consisting of a 48-month display with a leap year indicator. Unlike a simple calendar that requires manual correction in months of less than 31 days, as a classic perpetual calendar much appreciated by watch enthusiasts, no correction is required until March 1, 2100. This perpetual calendar can automatically calculate 31, 30, and 28 days of the month, and calculate the leap year cycle and February 29, which occurs every four years. This complication features a stunning micro-mechanical mechanism to ensure it performs automatic mechanical corrections based on calendar changes. In order to create this ultra-thin perpetual calendar, the pursuit of micro-mechanical technology has reached the extreme. The thickness of the Vacheron Constantin 1120 QP movement is only 4.05 mm, the vibration frequency is 2.75 Hz (19,800 times per hour), and it has a 40-hour power reserve. The oscillating weight is decorated with the Maltese cross logo, which shows the design style of the brand’s movement.

   The new Patrimony Heritage Series perpetual calendar pink gold case introduced by the 2017 SIHH in Geneva, with a rock gray dial. Continuing the series’ elegant character and pure aesthetic design, it is a new interpretation of modern atmosphere and dynamic. The microarched dial is decorated with a ring-shaped ‘bead’ minute scale and 18K pink gold appliqued hour markers. 18K pink gold hour and minute hands and calendar indication. The hand-stitched black crocodile riding stitching strap is equipped with a folding buckle of the same material and is decorated with a delicate sanding process.

   Below the dial, the pink gold moon phase profit and loss display against the blue electroplated chassis presents everything. Each star has been carefully constructed to present an accurate astrological map.

   Through the sapphire crystal case back, you can admire the 1120 QP movement on the watch. The 41 mm diameter case is water-resistant to 3 bar (about 30 meters).

Longines Longines Returns To Kitzbühel- News Longines

The indissoluble bond between Longines and ski competitions began in Chamonix in 1933. The Swiss watchmaker began timing the Hahnenkamm race in Kitzbühel in 1948, and has carried this responsibility more than 50 times since.

At the finish line of the 1969 Hahnenkamm race, Longines was responsible for timing.

In 2013, Longines will return to the Tyrolean resort as the official timer for the International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine Ski World Cup and World Championships.

For decades, Longines Longines has helped develop race technology, introduced a lot of innovative ideas to improve timing and provide the public with enjoyment of the race. For example, in 1993, Longines introduced a new technology that allows players to show their half-time on TV and compare them to their fastest competitors.

The Longines Saint-Imier collection is inspired by the birthplace of the brand’s long tradition of pure watchmaking. The fluent lines and lugs independent of the case give these new products a wonderful balance between classic and modern design. This chronograph has a diameter of 41 mm and is equipped with a L688 column-wheel movement specially developed and produced for Longines. Its stainless steel case has a black dial.

In addition to serving as the official timekeeper, Longines will also cooperate with the famous KitzCharity Trophy-professional skier and celebrity Streif ski run. In order to help raise money for the event to improve the lives of local poor mountain peasants and their families, Longines Longines will send its own ski team to participate in the competition. Its ski team is composed of Richard Strohmeier, Longines Vice President Finance and two Austrian celebrities Armin Assinger and Matthias Lanzinger.
At the end of the 2012/2013 ski season, Longines Longines will launch the Longines Rising Ski Stars, honouring two outstanding young skiers who participated in the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup. The best female skier is under the age of 21 and the best male skier is under the age of 23. Each will receive a trophy, a Longines watch and a check for CHF 20,000. This new award reflects Longines’ commitment to supporting young athletes.

The Direction Of The Core Is Omnipresent Glashütte Original New 37 Movement Mp Large Calendar Chronograph Watch

Glashütte’s original new MP Grand Chronograph watch made a stunning appearance at the 2017 Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show. The watch is equipped with Glashütte’s original 37 movement, which has been highly praised in the industry. Strong proof of Glashütte’s original craftsmanship in the watch industry. Calibre 37, specially designed for chronographs, is one of Glashütte’s original and proud representative movements. Once launched, it caused a sensation in the watchmaking industry and is still a commendable classic. The platinum and red gold models equipped with its MP Calendar Chronograph are still the first choice for elegance, becoming one of the brand’s classics. Now that this series has been upgraded again, Glashütte Original has once again introduced the new MP Chronograph Chronograph with a consistent attitude of excellence.

New Congressman Big Date Chronograph
Just the right balance of complexity and simplicity
   The 37 caliber, which was first introduced in the Congressman’s Grand Calendar Chronograph in 2014, opened a new series of Glashütte original movements. The performance of the 37 movement is far superior to that of a general-purpose chronograph movement. Minimizing the number of individual parts, it covers a large calendar, one of Glashütte’s original representative craftsmanship, a 70-hour power reserve, 30-minute and 12-hour timekeeping, and a flyback timekeeping And other complex functions.

   Unlike the monotony of the basic movement, which does not require the complexity of a complex movement, Movement 37 finds the perfect balance between complexity and simplicity, bringing a stable and reliable experience to the wearer. The simple design and complex performance perfectly reflect Germany’s distinctive character of ‘simple and precise expression’.
Turn complexity into simplicity
   The new Senator Large Calendar Chronograph is both internal and external. Through the sapphire crystal caseback, the wearer can see the delicate internal mechanical structure and feel the charm of the top German craftsmanship. Movement 37 insists on originality and keeps making breakthroughs. The movement uses a columnar wheel to simplify the structure. The composition of the switch lever is reduced from four small parts to one. The coupling clutch works by swinging the pinion gear. It is specially designed to use the same short path when the clutch is engaged and disengaged to ensure the technology. The stability and reliability of the watch at the same time save the internal space of the movement, and enhance the beauty of the movement.

Simple and stylish interpretation of different styles

   Different from the previous members of the Grand Calendar Chronograph, the unique frosted silver-plated dial and hand-painted silver powder add elegance and modernity to the watch. The new Senator Calendar Chronograph uses a 42mm stainless steel case, which is alternately polished and satin-brushed. The atmosphere is exquisite and durable. The strong contrast between the dark black dial and the white hour markers makes the watch more personal and dynamic. The dial’s large area is coated with SuperLumiNova, ensuring excellent legibility in all lighting conditions. In addition, Glashütte Original has selected three strap options for this new watch: black calfskin strap, black rubber strap, and stainless steel bracelet. Each strap is unique and creates a different style.
