Rolex Ref. 4113 And Index-mobile Mechanisms

When it comes to dual chronograph chronographs, we must mention Rolex Ref. 4113. Without a doubt, it is the most talked about, most sought after, and also the most expensive double-track chronograph in the Valjoux 55 family. Ref. 4113 was once the only Rolex watch that sold for more than $ 1 million in a public auction ($ 1.17 million in 2013), and today it has raised this record to $ 2 million (Rich in May 2016) Yiss auctioned “Stop-Stop-Reset” thematic auction for 2.4 million Swiss francs). Ref.4113 is Rolex’s only dual chronograph chronograph. It was introduced in 1942, with only 12 pieces produced. This watch is huge in size and can reach 44 mm in diameter. Equipped with Valjoux 55 VBR movement, it is also the most advanced configuration.

   The Rolex Ref. 4113 is no longer a single-button design-its central button is used to start the timekeeping, the button at 2 o’clock is used to activate the double tracking hand, and the button at 4 o’clock is used to reset the time. Please note that previous versions with Valjoux 55 VBR movements cannot be “paused” (as are all single-button dual-seconds chronographs), but Rolex Ref. 4113 has this feature. The Rolex Ref. 4113 is likely to be the only two-button two-second hand chronograph equipped with the Valjoux 55 VBR movement. Compared with other versions equipped with Valjoux 55 VBR movement, the Rolex Ref. 4113 not only adds extra features, but also the case is relatively thin.

   Why was Rolex Ref. 4113 made? This particular model has never been released publicly and has not appeared in any advertising for the brand. But we know that this watch was produced in 1942, a total of 12 pieces, serial numbering from 051313 to 051324.
   Interestingly, most of the surfacing examples are inextricably linked to Sicily. For example, in May 1991, Christie’s Geneva auctioned Ref. 4113 (transaction price 82,500 Swiss francs) with the number 051313. The client was the family of the famous driver Stefano La Motta. For another example, in October 1991, Christie’s London auctioned a Ref. 4113 (transacted for 27,500 pounds) with the number 051318. The client was a widow, and her husband worked for the team before his death. As a result, many people speculate that this rare and famous double-track chronograph has deep roots in motorsport. Today, Rolex Ref. 4113 is one of the most popular antique watches, as evidenced by its history and recent auction results.
Butex double-track chronograph, Landeron double-track chronograph movement

Butex dual chronograph chronograph

   The picture above shows a Butex double-tracing chronograph. From the overall layout of the lever, it can be inferred that the movement should come from the Landeron factory. The watch’s dual chase mechanism is activated by a button at 10 o’clock. This design is completely different from the Venus and Valjoux movements, but coincidentally, it is a modern dual chase chronograph similar to IWC and Lange. . These watches are like traditional chronographs. They are not only for wrist decoration, but also for functionality. They are really used for timing.

Butex dual chronograph chronograph movement

   In addition, the mechanical complexity of the movement is also amazing. They are among the most amazing and complex watch movements in history, and even one of the two mass-produced ultimate vintage collectible chronograph movements, and the other is the Longines 13ZN. If you don’t consider retouching, 13ZN may be superior in aesthetics and design, but the complexity of the Venus 185 / Valjoux 55 VBR is definitely better than life.
Valjoux 84 Mono-Rattrapante
   The demand for a double-tracking chronograph is real, but due to the cost price, the conventional double-tracking chronograph is difficult to benefit the general public. Moreover, the mechanical mechanisms of the dual chronograph chronograph are very complicated, and the difficulty of maintenance service can be imagined. As a result, industry players have begun to consider making movements that are more economical and easier to adjust. The first is the Valjoux 84 movement in the 1940s.

Valjoux 84 Mono-Rattrapante
   As mentioned earlier, the mechanical mechanisms of both the Venus 185 and Valjoux 55 VBR movements are equipped with double tracking needles. In 1936, Charles Jeanrenaud-Bovet of Fleurier obtained a patent for a chronograph (patent number no. 185465). This chronograph is equipped with only one second hand, but its functionality is similar to that of a double-track chronograph. It is called ‘Mono-Rattrapante’ and ‘Mono’ refers to a single second hand.

Valjoux 84 movement
   At first glance, the Valjoux 84 movement looks very similar to the earlier one-button version of the Valjoux 22 movement. However, we can easily notice the extra coil spring at 9 o’clock (left), which is a key element that allows the chronograph movement to give the second hand a ‘catching up’ mechanism.

Valjoux 84 Mono-Rattrapante

   Press the button at 2 o’clock to start the timing mechanism; then press and hold the button at 4 o’clock to pause the second hand, but the timing mechanism is still working. During this period, the coil spring gradually accumulates tension. When you release the button at 4 o’clock, the coil spring releases tension and the second hand will ‘catch up’ on the elapsed time. However, since the ‘chasing’ mechanism is basically connected to the small stud of the traction coil spring, the time for pressing and releasing the button at the 4 o’clock position is limited to 60 seconds (that is, the time for the second hand wheel to make one full revolution). No matter how long, the small studs will block the gears and the entire movement will stop.

LowenthalMono-Rattrapante

   Why is this mechanism effective? Because it allows the user to record the time of an event, while the timing mechanism can continue to track the elapsed time. The function of this mechanism is equivalent to that of the double-tracking mechanism, but it does not need to be equipped with a second second hand, which is simpler and easier to produce, adjust and service. In addition, this mechanism can also be used in other single-button movements. For example, some watches produced by Lowenthal have similar mechanisms.
Dubey & Schaldenbrand Index-Mobile mechanism
   Bovet’s creative application of the tension spring mechanism is an interesting horological innovation, and the watchmaking community is equally interested in using a similar technology to produce a double-tracing chronograph watch. In 1948, Georges Dubey and Rene Schaldenbrand obtained a patent (patent number no. 253051), which also uses studs and tension springs to be mounted on the Valjoux 77 movement, but an additional second hand is added. Tension springs, similar in function to the tension springs provided with the Valjoux 84. Two patents were subsequently obtained, each of which simplified the original system, and the second and final patent made it possible to use a universal single-button chronograph movement to achieve the double-tracking mechanism. This patent eventually developed into the Dubey & Schaldenbrand Index-Mobile mechanism.

Dubey & Schaldenbrand Index-Mobile
   So how does it work? Index-Mobile is equipped with an additional coil spring mounted above the dial and connected to a second second hand. Generally speaking, the conventional double-tracking chronograph movement needs to be extensively modified inside the movement; while the Dubey & Schaldenbrand Index-Mobile mechanism transfers most of the modification work to the outside of the movement, to the dial, the movement The important changes inside are just an additional sun gear and lever. The gear is connected to a second second hand and is connected to the original sun gear via a spring. Holding down the button at 3 o’clock, the lever will stop the gear and the second second hand, at which point the time of the first event can be read. As needed, the button can be released, and the second second hand can “catch up” with the first hand still running through the spring on the dial. The basic principle is very similar to that of Powell, but it realizes the real double-tracking hand timing function.

Index Mobile mechanism patent
   This mechanism (even compared to Valjoux 84) is undoubtedly more cost-effective because it adds extra elements to the basic movement without having to modify the entire movement. Compared with the traditional double-tracking chronograph movement, the Index Mobile mechanism is cheaper to produce; compared to the Valjoux 84 movement, the functionality of the Index Mobile mechanism is almost non-destructive, although the latter is also subjected to a similar 60 seconds. Within constraints.

Index Mobile mechanism patent
   Interestingly, most of the Powell Valjoux 84 watches have a chrome case, but less steel. A small number of Mono-Rattrapante watches produced by Lowenthal have a solid gold case. Although very rare, the value of these watches depends largely on the state of care. Strangely, there seems to be no special reason, but the demand for D & S Index-Mobile mechanism watches is significantly lower than the Valjoux 84 watch, which may be due to the existence of a large number of gold-plated D & S watches. In any case, the Index Mobile mechanism is a fascinating horological invention that deserves attention and recognition.

The Same Historical ‘offline’! The Fate Of Blancpain And Borgward Can Be Described As ‘a Big Difference’!

To say that this world’s most recognized watch brand has to mention Blancpain. In the watchmaking industry, there are not many brands that can write the founding year on the dial or LOGO. Blancpain is one of them. Blancpain was founded in 1735, which is the year when Yongzheng and Qianlong alternated in the Qing Dynasty. It has a history of nearly 300 years and is known as ‘the founder of classic timepieces’. Blancpain’s historical status is naturally self-evident, and its brand positioning also belongs to top brands. If you want to tell the story of the most historic brand, you may not be able to say it for years. But when it comes to what series of Blancpain watches are worth recommending, I must first recommend the Fifty Fathoms Fifty Fathoms and Villeret classic series. To say that the most popular type of watch today, it must be a diving watch. The Rolex Submariner series (commonly known as ‘Water Ghost’) is ‘a watch hard to find’ in the terminal market, and the ‘crazy markup’ in the secondary market has already well illustrated the global consumers’ recognition of diving watches. The watch that the industry can directly compete with Rolex ‘Water Ghost’, I am afraid that only Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms series is also the most popular series of Blancpain. In 1952, at the request of the French Navy’s elite diving force, Blancpain launched the world’s first ‘modern diving watch’-fifty cents. In the second year, Blancpain officially launched the Fifty Fathoms series to the market, and the ‘diving watch tide’ that has set off since then has not yet faded away. Today’s Fifty Fathoms already has different dial sizes, different materials, and different straps to meet the needs of different consumers. In the watch industry, Blancpain also has a very interesting nickname, called ‘Heaven and Earth Conscience.’ Analyzing the reasons is actually very easy to understand. As the top brand of watchmaking, Blancpain, compared with traditional ‘troikas’ like Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, and Audemars Piguet, it takes 100,000 yuan to buy it. Entry-level models, Blancpain classic series entry-level watches are also in the early 60,000 yuan, it really can be called ‘world conscience’. Blancpain’s classic series of watches, with very retro design elements, white gold Roman letters, white enamel dial, standard three needles and calendar, just like its series name, everything is so classic, this is the original watch What it should look like. The three large needles of the Blancpain classic series 6651 are also called ‘the most beautiful three large needles’ by many watch lovers. The alligator leather strap lined with alzavel calf leather, and the cleverly crafted back, in these details, Blancpain perfectly interprets the classic. However, there is still a lot of controversy in the Blancpain brand. The controversial points are mainly in history. Blancpain has been resold, acquired, and even circulated ‘discontinued for 20 years.’ Po’s positioning and recognition in the current market. In the automotive industry, in recent years, a German Bao Wo car has appeared in the domestic market. Speaking of BOWOWARD, what we can understand is that this brand was born in Germany and was founded in 1919. It has a history of 100 years and is the third largest automobile manufacturer in Germany at that time. For various unclear reasons, Bao Wo Automobile declared bankruptcy in 1961, and has since disappeared into the public’s vision. No wonder, before Bao Wo Auto entered the Chinese market, few people knew about its brand and models. From the original ‘Four Strong Germans’ to today’s ‘German brand of Chinese capital holding’, since last year, Bao Wo’s marketing team has no longer shy away from its own capital background. Overseas automobile brands make acquisitions and invest more in product development and production with greater capital. This is also known as the ‘Baowo model’. This model has Chinese characteristics and is unprecedented. It is a great time in the history of the automotive industry. try. Baowo Automobile is still positioning itself as an ‘engineer brand’, a brand that can be recognized by the ‘knowing family’. In this way, the car product itself has become the lifeblood of Bao Wo, or the selling point that can finally impress consumers. The author has also tested several models of Bao Wo under the test and visited Bao Wo’s factories in Beijing. The intelligent and flexible factories built according to the German Industry 4.0 standard are very leading in the world. Bao Wo owns the German brand, and the starting price of the main model BX5 is only over 120,000, which is far lower than the joint-venture brand of the same level, which is not a ‘world conscience’. After a test drive of the Borgward BX5, a friend also mentioned to me the experience of the test drive, using two words called ‘German flavor’. The short two words are a good illustration of the impression of Bao Wo. Here, we do not discuss the appearance and interior design of Bao Wo cars. The feeling that Bao Wo brings to the author is a kind of “solid” driving experience. The steering is precise, the power is smooth, and the brakes are strong. This is the German car. Feeling, that is, the ‘German flavor’ mentioned earlier. In terms of product level, Baowo Automobile can’t be picky. But in terms of sales volume, Baowo did not improve much. There are many reasons for this. In my opinion, in addition to the ‘unsatisfactory’ aspects of marketing, it is more about management issues. A good deck of cards, like this, is finally due to the ‘cruel market’. . In fact, from the stories of Blancpain and Bowward, we can find many similar places. For example, both have a very long history, and they have once fallen or even been acquired. However, from the current market performance, Blancpain can be said to be ‘rebirth of Nirvana’, regaining the market’s high-end leading market, while Baowo has been reduced to being acquired by Divine China, the market prospect is worrying. Perhaps this ‘goodbye’ is the arrangement of fate! (Text / Qiu Xiaozheng)

Why Are Swiss Watch Prices Constantly Rising?

As we all know, Swiss watches have always been the leader in the global watch industry, and have a supreme position in the minds of consumers. But with the continuous rise of Swiss watch prices in recent years, you can’t help but ask, where has it gone up?
Take Rolex as an example. It has raised retail prices three times in a row in just six months of this year. Rolex must be familiar to everyone. The leading Swiss brand sells 800,000 pieces a year. It has always been favored by celebrities and business people. Not to mention in China, it was once a status symbol. But for many Europeans today, this symbol has overwhelmed them.
The most popular Rolex among consumers is the Oyster Perpetual Series.
Omega also released a price adjustment notice earlier. The price of some models has been increased by 5% -20%. One original price reached 14,500 yuan after adjusting the price of 13,300 yuan, and the other was 76,700 yuan. After the price adjustment of the section reached 81600 yuan. For Omega, this price adjustment is the second time this year.
Omega
In the final analysis, the high monopoly of the Swiss movement is undoubtedly the factor that determines the price increase. In addition, the increase in the number of watches purchased by Chinese and Asians in Europe has led to an increase in sales. In addition, some special models are made of materials. And design is also the reason for the price increase.
Longines
On the other hand, it is because the appreciation of the Swiss franc against the renminbi has continued. From last year to this year, the ratio of the Swiss franc to the yuan reached a minimum of 6.12: 1 and a maximum of 7.06: 1. All Swiss watches are based on The Swiss franc is the settlement unit. Once the Swiss franc appreciates, it will directly lead to a rise in domestic selling prices. For various reasons, the price of Swiss watches has continued to rise.
