Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Astromystérieux Mysterious Tourbillon Watch

For more than 100 years, Cartier has fully exerted the charm of mysterious timepieces. The story begins with the mysterious clock. The reason why the mysterious clock is ‘mysterious’ is that its hands made of platinum and diamonds seem to be suspended above the transparent clock body without any connection to the movement. As admired by the 1925 fashion magazine ‘La Gazette du Bon Ton’, it is a ‘miracle in the history of watches and clocks’, Louis Cartier and Maurice Couet (1885- In 1963, he became the exclusive supplier of Cartier in 1911. In 1912, the first mysterious clock was born and named ‘Model A’. Morris Couet was inspired by the clock invented by Jean-Eugène Robert-Houdin (1805-1871), the great French magician who was the pioneer of modern magic. The principle he borrowed and carried forward was based on a wonderful idea: the hands were not directly connected to the movement, but were fixed on two glass discs with jagged metal frames. The disc is driven by the movement (mostly located at the bottom of the clock), which rotates the hands to indicate the hours and minutes, respectively. Today, Cartier launches a new mysterious timepiece that inherits and reinterprets this unique craftsmanship in a modern style.

A new chapter in mysterious aesthetics
 Following the Mysterious Hour Watch and the Dual Mystery Tourbillon Watch, Cartier launches the Astromystérieux Mysterious Tourbillon Watch, equipped with a center escapement that rotates around the axis of the hands. Cartier’s mysterious aesthetics has opened a whole new chapter. All the mysteries lie in this delicate structure: the movement is surrounded by a transparent and mysterious atmosphere, like floating in the watch case, free from the constraints of gravity. The hidden gear of the movement is as small as possible, giving it breathtaking visual effects.
 The 9462 MC movement is light and agile. The central shaft consists of an escapement, a balance wheel, a gear train and a barrel. The minute hand is set on the long and narrow extension of the movement and rotates around the dial every hour. The movement trajectory of the movement itself is also clearly visible, like the bright stars that draw across the night sky, hanging in the void, without any connection. The movement components are stacked and assembled on four rotatable sapphire crystal wafer trays, showing a miraculous mysterious scene.
 The mysterious tourbillon of the Astromystérieux celestial body can not help but wonder: Is this a new type of tourbillon? Its barrel rotates synchronously with the escapement and does not seem to be connected to the crown at all. How does it wind up? How do I set the time? Cartier’s master watchmakers boldly innovate, making the Astromystérieux celestial tourbillon mysterious tourbillon watch full of charm between motion and reality. Its manufacturing process has applied for many patents.
Dazzling new tourbillon
 The operating principle of the Astromystérieux celestial tourbillon is the same as the traditional tourbillon. The rotating frame is driven by fixed gears connected to the barrel. Unlike the traditional tourbillon, the frame of the Astromystérieux’s mysterious tourbillon is centered around the axis and rotates once per hour. Its structure is not only composed of an escapement and a balance wheel, but also a gear train and a barrel. A larger diameter sapphire crystal wafer plate serves as the lower bridge plate of the tourbillon frame, while the two upper bridge plates are fixed with a balance wheel and the other with an escapement, a gear train and a barrel. The tourbillon frame itself displays minutes during rotation. With the Astromystérieux celestial tourbillon watch, Cartier takes the tourbillon’s aesthetics and craftsmanship to a whole new level.

Ingenious and mysterious concept
 The charm of the Astromystérieux celestial tourbillon watch goes beyond that. There are also three sapphire crystal wafer stacking combinations that make this timepiece unique.

• A disc displays hours
 The hour dial is directly connected to the tourbillon disc to display the time. The other two disks have larger diameters and are used to carry complex gear systems. In order to protect these parts, the watchmaker installed a new anti-vibration system on the rotating frame to cushion external shocks that may be encountered when wearing the watch.

• Mysterious disc winding system
 The winding system of the Astromystérieux celestial mysterious tourbillon has been patented. Its function is realized by a sapphire crystal wafer plate and crown. This unique and delicate disc is connected to the barrel only when it is wound. To this end, Cartier specially designed a suspension gear located between the crown handle and the winding disc. When the crown rotates, this gear moves to connect the crown with the winding disc. When the crown is at a standstill, the gear will be automatically released and the connection between the two will be disconnected. The winding system of the Astromystérieux celestial mysterious tourbillon also provides unique protection for manual winding mechanical movements. Thanks to a specially designed clutch system, the crown handle and barrel will not be damaged even when they are over wound.
• Set time with dual function sapphire wafer tray
 The lower disc located at the bottom of the movement plays a dual role: it is responsible for providing power for the normal rotation of the tourbillon frame; when the crown is pulled out, the setting time system is activated. This technology has been patented. Both of these functions are achieved through a unique leverage mechanism, and this breakthrough high-end technology has also been patented.

 When the watch is operating normally, the lever locks the sapphire crystal disc tightly. The disc in a fixed position can transmit power to the tourbillon frame through the escapement. When the crown is pulled out to the time setting position, the lever releases the lower sapphire crystal wafer plate and the tourbillon frame fixed on the minute gear to complete the time adjustment.
 The Rotonde de Cartier Astromystérieux Tourbillon Mystery Tourbillon watch is made of 950 ‰ palladium and has a diameter of 43.5 mm. With this masterpiece of timepieces, Cartier wonderfully interprets the classics of fine watchmaking since 1912-the mysterious movement, giving this extraordinary design a new charm.

Mass Production Of The Successful Neomatik Watch Series

The first successful 1st edition neomatik watch is equipped with NOMOS next-generation movement DUW 3001, which expands the lineup of the brand’s new elegant automatic watch series.
   (Glashütte / Berlin, March 2016) After the first edition of the watch quickly sold out, NOMOS Glashütte continues to launch this series of watches, and these best-selling models are slightly changed before they appear. Minimatik, Tangente, Metro, Orion and Ludwig models continue to be paired with white electroplated silver dials or champagne gold dials. NOMOS Tetra classic square watches followed closely to join their lineup: this timepiece has always been known for the manual-winding version, and now with the new movement, the size has become larger and more masculine.

   Compared to the first version of the watch, the renewed model has a slight change in design: the word neomatik on the dial has changed from the previous fluorescent orange to gold; the minute hour marker of the Tangenteneomatikchampagner watch is now changed to the fluorescent orange design; small The scale of the second hand dial is changed to black; the Minimatikchampagner watch has removed the fluorescent orange ring design of the original small second dial; in addition to the classic white electroplated silver dial, the Tetraneomatik model also shows a new face, with a dark blue dial with a beautiful Green detail decoration.
   As the tenth self-made movement produced by NOMOS, the DUW 3001 automatic movement has a transparent design in all twelve watches of neomatik, which can be glimpsed through the sapphire crystal case back. The movement is only 3.2 mm thick and the most advanced research and production technology is used in the development process. The DUW 3001 caliber gives the neomatik series watches an extremely slim and elegant appearance, and at the same time achieves the accuracy of the observatory-certified models, and the movement time is extremely accurate. The DUW 3001 movement is also equipped with the DUW speed regulation system independently developed by NOMOS, which can achieve such a high accuracy of the time more easily and conveniently. This system replaces the previous Triovis trimming system, so NOMOS design engineers can make precise adjustment settings for them without touching the hairspring directly. The results of it? This has created these high-precision watch series.

   All ten neomatik round watches retain the classic size of 35 or 36 mm diameter. The white electroplated silver dial and dark blue Tetra models are paired with a black Holvin premium Cordova horse leather strap, while the champagne gold model is paired with an apricot leather strap.
   These exquisite straps are bezel-finished and paired with the brand’s exclusive NOMOS buckle. The exception is Tetra, with a buckle that interacts with its square case. The new neomatik series will be available at major retailers starting this spring.

Montblanc Launches Three New Heritage Precision Chronograph Watches

At the Watches & Wonders 2015 in Hong Kong, Montblanc will launch three new heritage precision chronograph watches. These watches are equipped with exquisite and elegant cases, equipped with innovative movements, combining all the basic characteristics of Swiss fine watchmaking, Montblanc’s exquisite craftsmanship and long tradition.
Montblanc Heritage Chronometer Precision Tourbillon Minute Chronograph Express Gamma Diamond Limited Edition 25

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.
Montblanc Heritage Chronograph Two-Date Timepiece Gamma Limited Edition 238 pieces

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.

Louis Vuitton Tambour Twin Chrono Dual Chronograph

LouisVuitton’s latest Tambor Twin Chrono dual chronograph is equipped with unique features developed by the La Fabrique du Temps watchmaking workshop under the Louis Vuitton: One press for each display Features.

Legends
The sailing competition is a one-on-one competition between two ships along the designated route under the same conditions, to compare the strategies, decision-making power and crew strength of the two sides. As the world’s most famous sailing event featuring competitions, the America’s Cup is the oldest international sporting event in history. The challenge team must win the LV Cup before they can qualify for the America’s Cup championship.
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Louis Vuitton Cup, Louis Vuitton has specially launched a watch with an exclusive innovative movement for the ‘Rivalry’ format: Tambour Twin Chrono.
World premiere
The time difference between the two times can be displayed on the dial. This innovative technology was designed and manufactured by La Fabrique du Temps, a fine watchmaking workshop owned by Louis Vuitton, and is regarded as an important milestone in the history of chronographs.
Perfect synchronization
This innovation is achieved through a movement consisting of four independent power mechanisms, three of which are specifically designed to support dual timing functions. The biggest challenge facing technology is to ensure the perfect synchronization of the four power units in motion, so as to ensure the simultaneous or continuous start and stop of the dual timing function. From the transparent case back, you can see this exquisite mechanical structure developed over four years.
The power mechanism for the dual chronograph function uses a manual winding mechanical movement, which can be wound manually with a crown at 4 o’clock (with a boat-shaped engraving). The power unit for displaying the hours and minutes is an automatic movement, and the time display can be adjusted using the crown at 2 o’clock (with Louis Vuitton acronym LV carving).

Three-layer guide column wheel
The LV175 Twin Chrono automatic movement is composed of 437 components, of which 2 column wheels play a key role. One is a classic-designed gear for controlling the minute hand. The other column wheel uses a completely different construction: this column wheel is located at the edge of the beam frame, and its three-layer design can realize the start and stop of each power unit separately, and can control the reset hand of the second hand.
Four times single button
Although the automatic movement of the LV175 Twin Chrono is complex, it can be easily operated by the innovative 4 single button at 7 o’clock, which can control all dual chronograph functions.
On first press, the two chronograph hands at 4 and 7 o’clock move simultaneously. When pressed a second time, the chronograph hand at 7 o’clock stops and the chronograph hand at 12 o’clock begins to move. Pressing it a third time will stop the timers at 4 and 12 o’clock at the same time. Pressing it a fourth time resets all timers.
We can only appreciate the importance of these functions in the sailing competition.
Press the single button once at the start of the game. The next two timers start counting. Press the single button again when the first ship reaches the end. The chronograph at 7 o’clock stops and the hands show the elapsed time of the ship (white is the minute hand and red is the second hand). The timer at 4 o’clock continues to count, and the timer at 12 o’clock starts to show the time difference between the two. When the second boat reaches the end point, the third time the single button is pressed, the timer at the 4 o’clock position stops, showing the elapsed time of the ship, and the timer at the 12 o’clock position shows that the two ships have arrived Time difference (minutes and seconds) at the end point. The time is displayed in both minutes (white minute hand) and seconds (red second hand). Pressing the single button for the fourth time resets all timers and can be used to time the next game.

Large fire enamel dial
The Tambour Twin Chrono dial is designed by Louis Vuitton’s Léman Cadrans advanced dial workshop, and is made by a master glazing craftsman with a large fire enamel. This traditional craft, mastered only by a few craftsmen in Geneva, perfectly showcases the ultimate aesthetics of Louis Vuitton watches.
Through the translucent dark blue large fire enamel covering the platinum dial, you can see the delicate carved pattern on the dial. With blue as the background, the red and white hands, scales, and minutes are striking. Craftsmen need a lot of time to carefully select materials, carefully handle countless stacks and delicate enamel patterns, and then start firing the dial multiple times at 840 degrees Celsius. At every step, every detail of the dial must be analyzed to make it as perfect as possible. After more than 40 hours of intensive work, the color of the dial will never fade.
