Ben Tao Series S Dive Watch

 The Bentao Series S diving watch is a professionally equipped watch with a water resistance of up to 600 meters. It not only reinterprets the representative elements of the Bentao Series S, but also adds a retro nostalgia to the watch. The diving watch has a perfect feel, every detail is clearly visible, and it can be said that it has all the elements that make diving lovers heartbeat.

 Wrapped in a stainless steel case with a diameter of 43 mm, the Bento Series S dive watch expresses time in a classic way. As a professional diving watch, it also has an automatic helium exhaust valve at 9 o’clock, which is indispensable for diving. Before returning to the surface, professional divers usually go through the decompression chamber to decompress. Breathing is mainly through a volatile mixed gas composed of helium, which will cause damage to the movement due to the pressure difference between the gas inside and outside the decompression chamber. The helium exhaust valve device of the Bentao Series S diving watch excludes helium and prevents any irreparable damage to the watch.

 Black or milky opal dials, with superluminova-coated indexes and hands, allow divers to read time clearly even in the deep sea. The hands are not only covered with a fluorescent coating, but the colors are very bright. The hour and minute hands are bordered by a jumping red, and the dial displays a calendar display at 6 o’clock. All functions are driven by the self-winding ML115 movement, with a balance frequency of 4 Hz and a power reserve of 38 hours.

The 2015 Watchmaking Class Of Hublot Watches “The Sound From The Cathedral” Was Held At The China Oil Painting Institute

On April 22, 2015, Mr. Mathias Buttet, the director of the research and development department of the legendary scientific wizard Hublot, continued to work in the third phase of the China World Trade Center, the National Museum, and Tsinghua University. The University and the National Library of China Ancient Library gave four watchmaking classes and came to Beijing again. At the China Oil Painting Institute, a fifth watchmaking class called Hublot “The Cathedral’s Sound” was held together with the Chinese media. Share the highly sophisticated watchmaking craftsmanship and the unique musical world of Hublot.

   Since today’s theme is ‘Changing from the Cathedral’, Hublot specially chose the church-shaped building of the China Oil Painting Institute as the venue for today’s class.
   Hublot has never stopped surpassing itself! Since its founding in Nyon, Switzerland in 1980, Hublot has featured a natural rubber strap with precious metal materials, setting a precedent for material fusion in the history of watchmaking at the time. Since then, the ‘integrated art’ representing its own rebirth, creation and revival has become Hublot’s unremitting pursuit. When the extraordinary imagination met the exquisite craftsmanship, Hublot once again demonstrated the constant search for ‘integrated art’, creating an extraordinary feast of hearing-‘the sound of the cathedral’ Let the sound of time flow so pleasant!
‘More watchmaking traditions, more advanced craftsmanship, more pioneering innovations, more bold attempts, more integrations!’ This is the current CEO of Hublot Jean-Claude Beaver Mr. In 2010 gave encouragement to the newly established complex watch department.
   Since then, Hublot has challenged the complication of minute repeaters, one of the finest in fine watchmaking. This feature is known for its numerous parts and complex operation, which test the craftsmanship of manual watchmaking, and the sound of the timepiece has become the ultimate embodiment of the brand watchmaking process. Hublot takes the beautiful sound as its pursuit, and strives to create a breathtaking sound of nature, to achieve a unique world of Hublot music.
    Just a year later, Hublot brought a new breakthrough in the field of highly complex watches-the King’s Supreme Cathedral Minute Repeater Tourbillon and Column Chronograph. This watch combines two highly complex functions in One body, and the groundbreaking use of the brand’s original carbon fiber machine board, has become a model of the fusion of traditional watchmaking and future technology. The sound of their singing is extremely beautiful and touching. Three years later, the classic Fusion Cathedral Minute Repeater Tourbillon watch was born, and its extraordinary sound has won praises from many connoisseurs. Behind all this is the unremitting efforts to turn dreams into reality— — The sound of the timepiece reverberation no longer relies on air to propagate, but through the resonance of the case material. This watch has won the ‘Best Timekeeping Award’ of the 14th Geneva Haute Horlogerie with an overwhelming advantage, and has witnessed Hublot’s remarkable achievements in independent research and development and highly complex watchmaking.
 The windows of the ‘church’ became distinctive after being attached to Hublot’s logo.
   In 2015, at the time of the tenth anniversary of the Hublot Big Bang series, the brand once again challenged the highly complex watchmaking field with the Big Bang timepiece. This watch combines two complex functions-mechanical alarm clock and second time zone display. Show the extraordinary skills at the same time, add a heavy stroke to the history of Hublot’s highly complex watch manufacturing.

 In order to better integrate with today’s environment, Hublot specially prepared a goose feather pen for everyone to take notes.
   Matthias Bout, the director of the research and development department of Hublot, who is more likely to be called a scientist rather than a watchmaking expert, has been leading the research and development of Hublot. Rapid advances have been made in the field of complex watchmaking, and countless praises have been received. Today Mr. Butt mainly explained some stories behind Hublot Minute Repeater for us.

   Mr. Butt believes that the decisive factor of the sound of the minute repeater watch depends on the interior of the case, the volume of air in the case, and the larger the volume, the louder the sound. A professional watch and clock magazine in France evaluated Hublot’s Minute Repeater and other minute repeaters. Hublot’s repeater has maintained a leading position in volume, sound and frequency.
   According to Hublot research, when the vibration frequency of the minute repeater is controlled between 2000-17000 Hz and the volume is between 60-90 decibels, the sound of the watch sounds the most harmonious.
   After testing, when the minute repeater watch is engraved, the sound interval is 0.8 seconds.
   Mr. Bout believes that the size of the minute repeater has a direct relationship with the environment. He personally put the minute repeater behind the piano for demonstration. Indeed, the minute repeater becomes very loud.
   After the course, everyone played Hublot’s minute repeater, this minute repeater with two ‘cathedral’ type gongs. This is a highly complex watch that integrates the tourbillon and column wheel chronograph functions. The case and the movement plate are completely made of carbon fiber. This watch perfectly interprets the ‘fusion’ of traditional watchmaking and future technology.
 The metal part on the side of the case is the switch that turns on the minute repeater.
 Hublot is indeed the pioneer in using the latest materials, and the plywood of the minute repeater can even be made of carbon fiber.
   In 2014, Hublot officially launched the second Cathedral Minute Repeater Tourbillon watch, perfectly displaying the wonderful balance between watchmaking art and contemporary dynamic design. The 45mm diameter classic fusion case is equipped with a dual high-complexity movement, deepening Hublot’s understanding of the fusion of tradition and modernity.
 The dial of the Hublot minute repeater has always been so low-key.
  The tourbillon escapement and minute repeater of the HUB8001 manual winding mechanical movement equipped on this watch are clearly visible. Most noteworthy are the newly designed time setting function and the classic tourbillon device (with a 13.6-mm diameter frame and one revolution per minute). In addition, the design of the bridge on the side of the movement dial ensures the stable structure of the tourbillon. Splints, ratchet cams and springs, racks and hammers, gongs and snail wheels, frames, gears, jewel bearings, screws-precision assembly of up to 319 parts of the watch is a decorative element, forming a unique aesthetic, complemented With rose gold or rhodium-plated hands and different case materials, it is even more exquisite. According to Mr. Butt, Hublot will release a shocking questionnaire two years later, let us wait and see! (Text / picture watch house Mao Zhuang)
