Trace the origins of the adventure
   Vasco da Gama on July 8, 1497 led a small galleon fleet of four ships (including his ‘San Gabriel’ ship-a captain A 27-meter sailboat with 60 crew members) set sail from the port of Leicester, Lisbon, towards the coast of India. The purpose of this great expedition is to open the southern tip of India, and you can import and trade precious gems and precious spices without going through Arab, Persian, Turkish or Venetian brokers. If the adventure is successful, he will be the first navigator to open a road directly to the sea south of India.
   Since in the era of Vasco da Gama, when all coastlines disappeared into the vast sea, there were no clocks or timers to calculate longitude, he relied on constellations and used basic navigational instruments to estimate his position. According to historical records, a constellation is particularly useful in helping him find his destination: Southern Cross, although a small constellation, is very distinctive and easy to identify. The four bright stars α, β, γ, and δ form a sacred cross shape, crossing the Milky Way. This reference point enabled the keen explorer to establish a voyage based on the geographic Antarctic.
   The success of Vasco da Gama’s expedition is mainly due to the captain’s courage, the desire for action, the courage to face risks, and most importantly, the control of accuracy.
   With precise observations and skillful calculations, on November 4, 1497, Vasco da Gama led the fleet to St. Helena Bay on the southwest coast of Africa. Then, bypassing the Cape of Good Hope, arrived in India on May 20, 1498, left the country on October 8, the same year, and successfully returned to Lisbon on September 9, 1499. Thanks to the new routes pioneered by the brave crew, Portugal was able to maintain its supremacy as a maritime and trading nation throughout the western world.
Legend: Precision
   Inspired by Vasco da Gamma’s pioneering spirit and nautical technology, Montblanc has created a new watch collection that perfectly combines the Portuguese explorer’s obsession with precision and the essence of fine watchmaking. Precision has always been an important goal of the watchmaking industry, and today it has become synonymous with ‘precise timing’ (from the French word ‘chronométrie’). One of the new ‘Montblanc Heritage Precision Chronographs’ originates from this tradition of fine watchmaking. The special edition watches in this collection are named after Vasco da Gama and are designed to pay tribute to this world-renowned explorer. The unique cross sign in the southern hemisphere sky also plays an important role.

The core of the collection’s value – Minerva Tradition
   Inspired by the pioneering spirit of this outstanding explorer, Montblanc created a unique heritage precision chronograph watch named after Vasco da Gama. Montblanc’s pursuit of this technical spirit and precision is reflected in the chronograph movement that has been continuously developed over the past 157 years.
   For example, among the brand’s many iconic timekeeping devices, important products include the famous caliber 13/20 designed for wristwatches in the early 1920s and the stopwatch with a precision of one hundredth of a second introduced in 1936. The focus on precise time measurement and various vibration frequency related technologies has helped Minerva stand out as a pioneer manufacturer of self-made balance wheels and hairsprings. Montblanc Villeret has maintained this tradition and continues to this day. This tradition also inspired Montblanc to develop a movement that inherited the precision chronograph series.
   Montblanc’s values ​​and the history of the Minerva Watch Factory are also reflected in the reinterpretation of one of the watch’s most representative models in the 1950s: the ‘Pythagore’ watch. This model is equipped with a 10½-minute manual-winding movement Calibre 48 (developed in 1948 with a small seconds display) and Calibre 49 movement with a chronograph seconds hand. Its design highlights the characteristics of classic Swiss fine watchmaking, and today it has become the inspiration and cornerstone of the heritage of precision chronograph design.
   The exquisiteness of the case is reflected in every detail: the satin-polished alternating surface highlights its delicate and delicate texture. To further accentuate this harmonious charm, they are equipped with a stepped bezel and round lugs with unique facets. Crown embossed Montblanc hexagonal white star logo. The dial is decorated with a sun or grain pattern and pays homage to the tradition of precision chronographs with clear minute scales, double faceted applique scales and timeless Arabic numerals. Faceted sword-shaped hands make the entire face more harmonious, ensuring that functions that adhere to the spirit of Swiss ‘timekeeping’ are clear and easy to read.
   Montblanc has always adhered to the watchmaking concept of ‘share the passion of high-end watchmaking’. The aesthetic design pursued by the inherited precision chronograph series perfectly embodies this motto. The understated and discreet style, the perfect details are reflected in the superb complexity and elegant, practical three-hand watch. With this new collection, Montblanc once again presents the passion and beauty of traditional watchmaking to watch connoisseurs.
Complex device
   Inspired by the desire for continued development, Montblanc has launched a new heritage chronograph watch with an innovative and practically complex function movement designed for everyday use. In addition to the super practical calendar models, Montblanc is constantly developing traditional mechanical movements that incorporate a variety of innovative features. These include two timepiece models with a second time zone display, a complication developed by Montblanc itself. This reflects Montblanc’s superb skills in movement design. Today, this superb technique is once again reflected in the original, reinterpreted version of the external tourbillon model, which debuted in 2010 and belongs to the Villeret series. The Heritage Chrono Chronograph is equipped with a crocodile leather strap made by Montblanc’s own leather goods factory in Florence, Italy.

Audemars Piguet Launches Royal Oak Offshore Limited Chronograph

To celebrate the partnership established between Audemars Piguet and Italian racing champion Jarno Trulli, Audemars Piguet launched the new Royal Oak Offshore Chuli Limited Chronograph to convey the common values ​​of both: Huai Pursuing perfection and precision with passion, we adhere to the most stringent requirements.
The Royal Oak Offshore Chuli Limited Chronograph inherits the design principles of premium sports cars, with a case made of high-tech innovative materials and an excellent chronograph movement. The case with a diameter of 42 mm and a water resistance of 100 meters is made of forged carbon. In the high-end watch industry, Audemars Piguet is the first watch factory to master the technology of forged carbon and first to use it for watch making. To make the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph’s case, a total of 12.5 grams of carbon strands are required. It is forged under high temperature and high pressure of 300 kg / cm2. If it is drawn into a straight line, it is equivalent to nearly 100 kilometers of carbon fiber! The middle ring of the case made in this way is extremely lightweight. Since the bezel is the most susceptible part of the watch, the classic octagonal bezel of this watch, Audemars Piguet decided to use the ceramic gold (Cermet) material used by the aerospace industry to make the space ship’s heat shield. The name of porcelain gold is a combination of ceramics and metal. This composite material has the advantages of both ceramic and metal. It is not only extremely hard (its Vickers hardness is 1450), but also shockproof and high temperature resistant. ,Anti-corrosion.

Superb performance for perfect driving
In addition to its excellent physical and chemical characteristics, porcelain gold is also selected for its beauty: the dark gray porcelain gold bezel is mirror-polished and polished, reflecting the light of eight bright polished stainless steel screws. For the finishing touch. The deep gray of the porcelain gold bezel and the black of the forged carbon case reflecting the wave of light are a perfect match, giving the overall exquisite elegance. The sandblasted, matte-finished titanium crown, chronograph buttons, and bottom bezel add a deeper tone to the gray tone. On the dark gray dial decorated with Audemars Piguet’s ‘M & eacute; ga Tapisserie’ oversized checkered pattern, the red hour markers, hour and minute hands, and central chronograph seconds hand create a lively effect. The sapphire crystal transparent bottom is branded with red Chuli’s autographed words, showing the watch’s sportsmanship. The Royal Oak Offshore watch is like a high-speed sports car on the starting line, full of horsepower under the control of the driver.
A high-end sports car is indispensable with a powerful engine. Similarly, the movement equipped with the Royal Oak Offshore Chuli Limited Chronograph is by no means idle. Through the sapphire crystal transparent bottom, you can see the exquisite movement. This Cal.3126 / 3840 self-winding movement, developed on the Cal.3120 basic movement designed and manufactured by Audemars Piguet, guarantees that the watch reaches an outstanding level in terms of accuracy. The adjustable weight balance with eight small weights and the horizontal-to-horizontal balance bridge design greatly improve the performance and reliability of the movement. In addition, in order to make the wearer more comfortable, Cal.3126 / 3840 movement has the function of instant date change and quick adjustment, and has a power reserve of up to 60 hours. When setting the time for the watch, the movement also comes with a thoughtful device that stops the second hand from moving.

A Watch With 20,000 Or 10,000, It Looks Really Good.

Mixed track bezels for many years, played various watches, famous, niche, advanced, close to the people, foreign, domestic, except for the green tea tea, other watches are more or less Touched some. The more you play, the more you recognize the fact: no matter how touted by the brand and the media, no matter how enthusiastic collectors and watch fans are, for the general public, a watch of 10,000 or 20,000 is still the first choice. At this price, you can afford to lose face without losing face. Too cheap watch, many people feel that the grade is not enough. The watch with a size of tens of thousands has a lot of pain. The 80th Anniversary Special Edition of the Large Crown Pointer Date is precisely because of this. In the price range of 10,000 to 20,000, the competition is extremely fierce. Various companies have tried their best to hope to create an attractive explosion. But how easy is it to make an explosion? Therefore, although the brand is pushing new models every year, it really makes people look bright, and there are very few watches with a desire to buy. However, there is an exception for a brand. Its new models often move me. This is 豪 利 时 . Oris’s mainstream price is 10,000 or 20,000, and mechanical watches are produced across the board. In this price brand, it has its own characteristics, and has won many fans with its high value and cost performance. The big crown watch is an evergreen tree from Oris. Let’s take a look at Oris’s big crown watch . The large crown is one of the most Oris DNA watches, dating back to 1938. At that time, Oris introduced a large crowned pilot’s watch, which is not only suitable for pilots to wear gloves, but also has a pointer calendar function. After the launch of this watch, it was highly praised, and since then it has not stopped production, becoming an ‘evergreen tree’ for Oris. The new big crown watch has a lot of highlights in terms of material and color. In terms of materials, the Pointer Date 80th Anniversary Special Watch is boldly made of bronze with a green dial. Bronze is the current popular watch material, which can oxidize and change color with the passage of time, and according to different people’s wearing habits, there will be slight differences in color. It seems to bear witness to Olympian’s long history. The watch uses an arched sapphire crystal, snake eye needles and Arabic numerals complement each other, plus a coin-shaped bezel, analog calendar and track scale ‘help’, the whole watch in the retro fashion, ‘Power’ is full. The watch is 40 mm in diameter and is equipped with an Oris 754 self-winding movement. The retail price is 13,800 yuan. Since there are special models, there are naturally ‘non-special’ general models. These styles are divided according to the surface of the plate, and are available in red and blue colors. The red model is also 40 mm in diameter and is made of stainless steel. The price is relatively more affordable, only 1550 Swiss francs, equivalent to about 10,000 yuan. At the Basel Watch Fair, I tried on this watch in particular, with a red dial and a suede strap, it felt quite ‘handsome’ to get started. Do you like the big crown with the red dial? The blue model is 36 mm in diameter and the case is made of stainless steel with a bronze bezel and brown leather strap. The retail price is 1700 Swiss francs, equivalent to about 11,000 RMB. In the watch industry, Oris is one of the most environmentally conscious brands. Especially in water resources protection, Oris has made a lot of efforts. This time, the brand and the wild adventure swimmer Ernst Bromeis launched the Aquis Relief Calendar Watch . It will follow Ernst Bromeis on Lake Berga in preparation for Ernst’s 2019 ‘Blue Miracle’ swimming event. The design of the Aquis Relief calendar watch is inspired by water. Twelve silvery white scales, like twelve crystal drops, are scattered around the dial. The gray dial symbolizes the storm-torn sea. The stainless steel Aquis Relief calendar watch is 43.5 mm in diameter, masculine, with a screw-in crown, and it has a water resistance of 300 meters. The dial is polished with radial texture, which complements the gray unidirectional rotating bezel. The hands and hour markers are coated with a large area of ​​Super-LumiNova, which can be read clearly in low-light places such as underwater. The bright red seconds hand adds a touch of time to the passage of time. In terms of the price of playing Aquis Relief at the Basel Watch Fair, the Aquis Relief calendar watch has adhered to Oris’s price-performance ratio. The price of the steel chain model is 14,800 yuan, and the other strap models are 13,200 yuan. Oris has cooperated with the non-profit non-profit organization-Coral Reef Recovery Foundation for many years. The Foundation has a small goal: to rehabilitate coral reefs killed by warming seas by artificially growing corals. Although for a variety of reasons, this small goal has not been fully achieved, but some progress has been made. Oris and the Coral Reef Restoration Foundation have collaborated for many years. Oris has launched a brand new Great Barrier Reef watch- Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition 3rd Generation . Simply popularize the Great Barrier Reef. The Great Barrier Reef is located in Australia and is the largest and longest coral reef in the world. There are more than 1,500 fish species, more than 400 hard corals, one third of the world’s soft corals, and six species of endangered turtles. As a unique and beautiful natural landscape, the Great Barrier Reef is listed by UNESCO as a ‘World Cultural Heritage’. However, such a ‘wonderland on earth’ is facing a growing problem of coral bleaching death. Therefore, it is urgent to protect the Great Barrier Reef. Oris has been committed to improving the world’s marine environment, and this year has also established a special marine protection project. The Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition 3rd generation open-box photo watch is very distinctive in design. The watches are also part of the Aquis collection and are limited to 2,000 pieces. It uses a deep and charming marine blue dial and a blue ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel, reminiscent of the waters of the Great Barrier Reef. In addition, the unique calendar display is personally considered another eye-catching highlight. It does not use a common calendar window, and it is different from the pointer calendar of the large crown watch, but uses a ring calendar display in the center of the dial. The calendar is indicated by a small hollow in the dial and a rectangle with a different color from the dial. At 9 o’clock is the small second hand. The retail price of the watch is 17,800 yuan , equipped with a special watch box made of environmentally friendly materials. If the large crown watch mentioned at the beginning of the article was originally built for pilots by Oris, then the 65 years of watch design inspiration comes from the brand’s earliest tailor-made watches for divers. In terms of overall style, the 65-year-old watch follows the original style, but uses modern technology and materials. The new 65-year-old watch, for example, the mirror of the early 65-year watch is made of Plexiglas. Now it has been replaced with sapphire that is durable and not easy to wear. The movement has been upgraded to an automatic winding movement. This year’s new 65-year change is mainly in size and material. In terms of size, based on the original 42mm and 36mm diameters, a 40mm model has been introduced to cater for the needs of more people. The new 65-year model is 40mm except for the black disk model which is 42mm. Dial colors are different colors such as blue and green. It is a very clever way to provide different colors for classic styles and let people choose freely. Because different people have different preferences for color, no matter how popular colors are, it is impossible to please everyone. The so-called ‘radish and greens, each has its own love.’ In terms of materials, whether it is a 42 mm model or a 40 mm model, a combination of stainless steel and bronze is used. Depending on the style, the range of use of bronze is also slightly different. The new 65-year-old watches are all 100 meters water resistant, with retail prices ranging from CHF 1,850 to CHF 2,200.
