Beijing Watches Along With Pioneers Gao Weiguang’s ‘change’ Watchmaker Experience The Charm Of Timepieces

On April 22, Beijing watch, a professional watch brand from 1958, specially invited ‘Emperor’ Gao Weiguang, who is everywhere in the world, to visit Beijing Watch Watch Tasting Shenyang 1928 Store, Hengli Mr. Zhou Jun, assistant general manager of the World Famous Watch Center, Mr. Xu Chuangyue, general manager of Beijing watch brand, and other senior watch experts, guests and media friends also came to the scene to appreciate their classics that crossed the time with the pioneers of the era.

Beijing Time for ‘Emperor’

   One is the “Emperor”, who has a high-cold look in the play, with silver hair like green hills and frozen snow, and a watch brand with the architectural elements of the Forbidden City as its logo. The highly collectible orphan, limited edition masterpieces, all these make Beijing watches from the establishment to a considerable time, are considered ‘brand positioning is too high and cold.’ But it is also this ingenuity that keeps improving and achieves the unique charm of the brand. Xu Chuangyue, General Manager of Shiyuehui and General Manager of Beijing Watch Brand, said: ‘Mr. Gao Weiguang is an outstanding actor, whether it is the high-cold god’ Emperor ‘in the play, or the professionalism of the acting industry outside the play. Yu loves things, and pays all the enthusiastic qualities for them, which fits well with the core of the brand of Beijing Watch. We are honored to invite him to the scene to appreciate the classics of Eastern aesthetics with us. ‘

‘Watchmaker’ Gao Weiguang’s Day

   As a professional watch enthusiast, accompanied by representatives of the Beijing watch brand, Gao Weiguang came to Beijing Watch Shenyang 1928 Store, expertly picked up the watch’s dedicated eyepieces, and appreciated the subtleties of the tourbillon’s operation; Under the guidance of the watchmaker, he also became a ‘watchmaker’ for a day. In the process of assembling highly complex movements, Gao Weiguang laughed and finally realized the difficulty of the master watchmaker and the charm of high-end watchmaking, and said: ‘Whether it is an artist or a watchmaking brand, they are actually talking about works and quality. Both parties are willing to spend many times to complete a work that makes them satisfactory, always focus on and insist on it.’ Beijing watch has high complexity The design and production strength of the movement, advocating and cultivating a lot of respectable masters, retaining a lot of the essence of hand-made, can’t get up, and can’t get more, which has given these movements ‘high-end’, ‘rare’ Features.

   At the event site, Gao Weiguang even interacted with the guests on watch knowledge and asked questions and shared the story of his relationship with Beijing watches: his father had a Beijing watch when he was a kid, and he would secretly wear it. The idea that ‘every man should have a watch of his own’ also began to sprout from that time.

Do not fight, own ‘light’

   On the same day, Gao Weiguang wore the Beijing watch for his sublime series of minimalist theme tourbillon, which was exclusively customized for him. This is the heaviest work of Beijing watch this year, which means ‘not fighting, moving forward with a low profile.’ This watch is equipped with a Beijing flying tourbillon movement, because the upper bracket of the tourbillon is removed, and it is only fixed from below. The tourbillon runs like a suspension and is full of dynamic expression. It is worth mentioning that this movement is also loaded with a cardless spring, which adjusts the length of the hairspring by hand to improve the accuracy of the time. It also tests the watchmaking skills. While retaining a lot of the essence of handmade, it also breaks the traditional form of tourbillon in design, draws inspiration from minimalist oriental aesthetics, and brings rich layers with slender lines. This is the aesthetic proposition of oriental aesthetics and belongs to modern fashion. In the seemingly simple design, there are many details to consider: the design of the arched surface, the special sapphire crystal structure; at the same time, the crazy horse leather strap between the matte leather and fine wool texture is selected. In the years that accompany the wearer, there will be different marks of use, which is also an expression of personality.

   As a professional brand with independent watchmaking capabilities, Beijing Watch focuses on the spirit of craftsmanship and artistic aesthetics, focuses on the modern expression of oriental aesthetics, and integrates superb craftsmanship with cultural connotations. Seven highly complex movements such as tourbillon, tourbillon three questions, double tourbillon, three-dimensional dual-axis tourbillon, three-axis three-dimensional dual tourbillon, and double escapement long travel time independently produced by Beijing Watch. Beijing watch masters have perfect passion for sophisticated watch technology; there are too many unique aesthetics of Beijing watches in advanced watchmaking processes such as inlaying, enamel, embroidery, micro-engraving, carved gold, hollowing out, and finishing.

    Along with Pioneer, Beijing Watch is willing to spend several times more time to make a real watch, making your time more precious.

Arceau Ebony mechanical chronograph men’s watch
The extraordinary creativity of the Arceau watch series is reflected in incorporating the shape of the stable into the design of the watch. The upper part of the round case has horse-shaped lugs, which makes the watch as a whole a little asymmetric. The Arabic numerals are always slightly towards the center of the watch, and the number 6 in them contrasts with the inverted numbers on both sides. This cutting-edge design gives the watch a sense of playfulness, and its completely different creativity also shows the resemblance and artistic sense that Hermès pursues in design.

Arceau Watches
The new Arceau Ebony chronograph with full color selection, combining elegant beauty, precise and flawless characteristics and extremely harmonious fine craftsmanship, pays tribute to Hermes’ first companion ‘horse’. On the 43 mm ebony surface, the designer equips the numerals and time scales with a new and representative gray (étoupe), which contrasts with the dark surface.

The succinct date display window and the embossed sub-dial remain in harmony with the entire surface, further enhancing the beautiful appearance and the legibility of various functions. In addition, the designer chose the ebony color that echoes the dial color to highlight the delicate and slender nature of the surface, especially the bold calfskin strap, which reveals the uniqueness of this new Arceau series. Stylish personality and confident style.

Bao Po Cultural Ambassador Liang Wendao Visits Basel

[2015 Basel] This is the Basel Clock Fair. As soon as I put my luggage in the room at eight in the morning, I encountered a scene like Mong Kok in Hong Kong on the open-air cafe below the hotel. The crowds rushed from all directions to the exhibition center across the road. Someone dragged their suitcases and hurriedly hurried away. Some people hurriedly carrying their bags while sipping coffee in their hands; there were buses on the side of the road and they were still spitting More tourists-Of course, this is not an ordinary tourist, but I saw so many black hair and subconsciously regarded them as tourist tourists to Hong Kong.
   Compared to these professionals, I am actually a tourist, and I am a tourist too late; the Chinese have already become the mainstay of the annual Basel show, everyone is well-informed, I just do n’t come Just join the fun. Since it’s fun, I don’t want to talk too much about the doorway in the exhibition, lest you laugh. Anyway, it’s dizzying, and it’s exhausting. Although I’m interested in watches and I like beautiful things, but the aesthetic bombing is so dense, can’t I be tired? So early the next morning, I crossed the river with the friends of Blancpain and went to the city to see the long-loved sights, such as the Art Basel and Basel Cathedral.
   Usually speaking of Basel, a small city with a population of less than 200,000 (but it is already the third largest city in Switzerland), we think of two exhibitions, one is the Basel Watch and Jewellery Show, and the other is Art Basel exhibition. Most people are here for the two major exhibitions. So during the two major exhibitions, the hotels in the city were naturally full and crowded. But on weekdays, the city hasn’t been busy, because it also shoulders the heavy responsibility of carrying Swiss economic strength. Switzerland’s number one industry is not watches, not tourism, and even chocolate; medical chemicals and precision instruments. Basel is where the Swiss medical industry and precision industry re-locked the headquarters of many global leaders (by the way, one of the Swiss Watch Group headquarters is also in Basel). I don’t want to say that the watch exhibition is just a icing on the cake for it, but in some deeper and therefore more clearly face-up clocks are indeed the fruits and fruits of the historical nature of the city. Without the accumulation of the past few hundred years, there would be no later Swiss clocks, nor would there be any Basel clocks that are famous internationally today.
   We crossed the river and walked to the old town in order to hang the old roots that were hundreds of years old.
   In terms of European standards, Basel Cathedral is not magnificent; after the Protestant baptism, the bustling end, its carvings are not as delicate as the Catholic Church. But here is buried a big man I admired since childhood-the father of Western humanism Erasmus. Erasmus’ translations and treatises opened the religious revolution led by Martin Luther, and also affected the Italian Renaissance. He is a ancestor in history. He advocated the trend of enlightened progress throughout his life, but remained in the Catholic Church for life. Shoudu Li, whose temperament is like our Chinese Hu Shi, sees new learning in tradition. His tombstone was even more dull on the day when there were not many tourists.
   The question is, how could a Dutchman in Erasmus hide in Basel, Switzerland? If you want to understand this problem, you can take a detour and go to the gilded Art Basel.
   The Basel Art Museum is the world’s first public art museum. It originated from a collection of local wealthy in the early modern times. At that time, the wealthy died, and future generations were scattered. The then mayor of Basel was worried that a large number of precious books and treasures would flow to other parties, and he and the University of Basel (the oldest university in Switzerland, Nietzsche taught here; Wei One of the founders of the points, Leonhard Yula is a student here) co-funded to turn this private collection into public finances. Gradually, it absorbed more donations and gradually became one of the most important art galleries in Europe. Especially famous is its modern art. You can get a glimpse of the ins and outs of western art in the twentieth century by taking a tour. Another interesting fact that must be mentioned was that in 1967, they had held a full-name referendum in order to ask whether they would be included in Picasso’s two expensive items. As a result, the Mayor of Basel would rather blackmail the public funds spent elsewhere in the year and obtain two masterpieces by Bi Gong, which would be voted by a large percentage. Picasso was so touched by this news that he simply sent four more works in return for this city.
   But the focus of my trip was not Picasso, but an inconspicuous small-sized portrait on the second floor of the art museum. It was written by Hobein, one of the most important painters of Central Europe in the 16th century. Rasmus. You can see this portrait of Erasmus casually when you go online and check, his side writing is the first association when later generations think of him. The relationship between these two people is deep, not just as simple as ordinary artists and buyers (portrait paintings in those days are like today’s photos, and people with status and wealth will invite people to take photos for themselves). Hobart often respected Erasmus, and illustrated many of his works. The quality of illustrations, and the good and evil of printing, were the main reasons for the unpopularity of books in the era when printing was just popular.
   In fact, the reason why Erasmus came to Basel for a long time was for books. He found that there was a book dealer named Flobber who copied his masterpiece without permission, but he edited it and finished it better than the original, so he was curious, so he came here to check it. Erasmus, who was humorous by nature, just made a embarrassing joke when Floburn just met, and immediately fell in love with this printer, who is also a scholar and works very seriously. Everyone happens to be Floburn. Please ask Hobba for his production and retouching. These three people became the publishing triangle of the European cultural circle, co-editor, co-authored the book, and even Thomas Moore of the UK handed over his ‘Utopia’. Give them published first. The publishing house that Flobben founded back then still exists, and of course it is the oldest publishing house in the world.
   After so long, what does all this have to do with the watch? Let’s look at it. When we open the map of Switzerland, we will find that there is a long and narrow valley starting from Geneva and north along the French border. This area is the official “watch valley” of Switzerland. The focus of the extreme north is exactly Basel. This place is not only known for the watch industry, but also a very special area in European history. Before and after the Protestant Revolution, it absorbed countless refugees who fled because of religious persecution. These refugees were conscientious, they could not see the decay of the Catholic Church at that time, they could not stand the social and ideological shackles, and wanted to find a space where they could breathe freely. Coincidentally, many of these people are ‘specialized technical talents’, love scientific research, and are fascinated by all kinds of technology research and development and promotion. According to the situation of that era, most of these people were people with learning and intellectual thinking, unlike today’s liberal arts. They are very interested in everything from astronomical new knowledge to artistic progress. The ‘watch valley’ is where they can settle down, while Basel is a free port of thought on the valley.
   Don’t forget that typography is an emerging industry of the year, meaning today’s Internet. As a publishing and printing center, Basel’s opening to the mainland has certainly attracted the free minds of Europe, including ‘dissidents’ such as Erasmus, to promote the development and dissemination of new knowledge and ideas together. The predecessor of today’s watchmakers is actually free thinkers and technical talents who have been attracted by this trend. For them and their heirs, the world created by God should not be a myth that is interpreted by authorities, but a precision instrument governed by laws. Looking for the laws of nature is to find the secrets of creation; distant works that imitate those laws are the masters of praising the laws. For example, a well-functioning, accurate and perfect clock is not the model of the world? The manifestation of God’s glory?
   Time is the model and benchmark for all order in the universe; clocks are a concrete and weak manifestation of this order. Basel is the end of Switzerland’s ‘Watch Valley’, and Basel watches are the export of the Swiss watch industry. From here, we can just go back to the history of spiritual pursuit behind this industry. (Wen Liang Wendao)

The Beauty Of The Dial Mosaic Mosaic Watch Appreciation

Mosaic mosaic technology, an ancient technique that has been passed down for thousands of years, was originally only used in large-scale decoration such as walls, murals, ceilings and floors. Today, it crosses the field of expression and miniaturizes it for use in watchmaking. Then start this artistic journey on the dial, admire the beauty of mosaic mosaic technology on the dial.

 Master of craftsman polished natural gemstones into slices with a thickness of 0.4 mm
Polished and cut colored natural gem flakes
Place 1167 small gem squares on the pattern one by one
Ingenious combination of various warm-tone gems to form a beautiful pattern

 The term “Mosaïque” was born in Rome in the first century BC, but its true origins can be traced back to Sicily in the third century BC, where the earliest glass and marble cubes were found Mosaic pattern. At the time, this process of using cut glass and marble cubes instead of pebbles as an inlay material was an innovation. Mosaic mosaic technology has continued to evolve and develop, and there has been a miniature mosaic mosaic technology, which is particularly popular in Italy at the end of the 18th century.

 This ancient technique, which has been passed down for thousands of years, was originally only used in large decorations such as walls, murals, ceilings and floors. Today, it crosses the field of expression and miniaturizes it for use in watchmaking.

 First, pick the gems. There are many types of gemstones, including onyx, tiger’s eye, eagle eye, yellow petite, carnelian, yellow jasper, palm jasper, Kalahari jasper, yellow agate, mossy agate, coral and mother-of-pearl. Subsequently, the gem setting technician polished and cut the warm-toned natural stones that were screened into small squares of uniform length and thickness. Then set the gem cubes one by one in the predetermined order.

 Take the Cartier Rotonde de Cartier watch turtle decorative pattern as an example. Firstly, the outline of each tortoise shell and tortoise foot is outlined with black gemstones, and then other colors of gemstones are inlaid layer by layer, which makes the color layer richer and the shape more prominent. The entire turtle pattern is inlaid with 1,167 gems. Gem setting alone requires more than 60 man-hours. The intricate inlaying process makes the turtle made of gemstones on the dial vivid and attractive. All gems are pasted on the dial and then consolidated to ensure a uniform and smooth surface. It is precisely this extremely precise and delicate processing method and meticulous creative attitude that can achieve the classic.

This ancient, traditional mosaic technique has shown a variety of forms with the times: through a diverse combination with architecture, art, decoration, and even information technology, mosaic technology plays an irreplaceable role on the stage of human culture. Roles. We are happy to use mosaics to make the inspiration and ideas of each era a reality. Similarly, the constant innovation of watch dials at any time is also the constant truth of the entire horological field.

Mosaic

 Mosaic is a centuries-old handmade art that has been used since the Bronze Age. Some ancient Greek ruins have also confirmed the use of small stones to decorate the outdoor pavement.

Until the late 18th century, when two of the most revered and world-renowned artists, Cesare Aguatti and Giacomo Raffaeli, created micromosaics, they invented a new technology that allowed them to make miniature mosaics smaller than 1 mm in diameter . These mosaics are made of polychrome and are heated at a high temperature in excess of 800 degrees Celsius. The glass paste is then cooled and cut into tiny square bricks. In addition to reducing the volume of the bricks, this technique invented by the two artists also brings a richer choice of colors, including more than 10,000 different shades, so you can make the most careful light effects and a variety of gradients. Shades of light. At that time, the most delicate micromosaic sometimes consisted of up to 560 mosaic pieces!

The Piaget once again demonstrated its creative tradition with the extraordinary craftsmanship of a Roman artist. The artist is a descendant of an 18th-century craftsman who created a micro-mosaic Yves Piaget rose on an Altiplano watch. This miniature art masterpiece is attached to Piaget’s signature ultra-thin watch face with multiple delicate pink tones.

Since then, the 9S movement has continuously improved its performance. The new spring Spron alloy is used for the mainspring and balance spring; the parts are manufactured using MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) processing technology, and the manufacturing tolerances are as small as one thousandth of a millimeter. Today 9S movement has become the cornerstone of Grand Seiko mechanical movement development with its high precision, long-lasting power reserve and solid and durable structure, and has won the reputation of ‘one of the best mechanical movements in the world’.

The case is made of 950 platinum, and was operated by Nobuhiro Kosugi, the first designer of the 9S movement in 1998. It is a new interpretation of the classic design style of Grand Seiko.
   The mirror effect polished by Zaratsu (grinding method) extends from both sides of the case to the edge of the lugs, and intersects with the hairline polishing effect on the inner side of the lugs, showing a triangular area with a sharp outline. This effect can only be accomplished by a skilled Grand Seiko master. The design of the dial is also special, using a special logo that appears only when the second Seikosha is used to make a specific watch. This impressive logo, repeating the GS initials in an orderly and alternating manner, presents a radial geometric pattern in the center of the dial. The second Seiko House is now the well-known Seiko Electronics Co., Ltd. In 1968, the first Hi-beat Grand Seiko watch was born here.

Classic Italian Design Panerai Luminor 1950 Watch Tasting

Italy is a beautiful and magical country, the magnificent Colosseum, the romantic water city of Venice, charming Florence, the majestic Santa Maria church, and the tender Sicilian islands … Every inch of land seems to be endowed with soul. I personally have a special feeling for this country that blends the history and culture of ancient Rome with today’s fashion and romance, so I have a special liking for Panerai, a watch brand that originated in Italy.

  Panerai was born in Florence in 1860. It is famous for its precision machinery and excellent quality. It was the first to produce precision instruments and watches for the Royal Italian Navy. Design inspiration. To date, Panerai Watches is a watch brand that combines Italian design style, Swiss watchmaking technology and infinite passion for the ocean. Today we are going to taste a Panerai Luminor 1950 series watch, the official model: PAM 00524.

Functional illustration of Panerai Luminor 1950 watch

  Everyone knows that Panerai’s two families are Radiomir and Luminor. The birth of the watch dates back to the eve of World War II. At that time, Panerai launched the first Radiomir watch. This watch was used by the frogman unit of the Royal Italian Navy’s First Diving Unit Command. Many features of this watch are retained. Two years later Panerai improved and prototyped this prototype watch. The new watch has a double-layer dial, which is similar to the dial introduced today. Later watchmakers discovered that Luminor could emit light by themselves, so they replaced the original radium paint with it. Luminor series watches were born. After the end of World War II, Panerai continued its technology that was carried out at the beginning of the war. Research, perfecting the research and development of Luminor. The new Luminor watch is unique because of its crown bridge, the linear lugs have also been improved, and the case is cast in one piece with the case. The case continues the classic pillow-shaped case of Panerai. From this Luminor 1950 The series is born.

  This Panerai Luminor 1950 series watch is equipped with a flyback chronograph function and an automatic movement with a power reserve of up to three days. The movement used in the watch was independently developed and produced by Panerai. This is also the first finished watch made with P.9100 movement, so this watch has extraordinary significance. The watch has a diameter of 44 mm. This size is more suitable for men who prefer large dials. The case is made of AISI 316L frosted stainless steel. The surface is made of brushed metal, which has a very high texture. .

  The Panerai Luminor 1950 series crown protection bridge is unique to this series, this design also evolved step by step in the history of development. The crown, like the case, is also made of stainless steel. The crown guard bridge tightly wraps the crown to provide better protection. The strap is made of high-grade black leather, and the sides are decorated with pressure lines. The fine texture of the leather enhances the quality of the watch, which is enough to prove the rigor and refinement of Panerai’s selection of watch materials.

  Each of Panerai’s watches continues the vintage taste of the early days of watchmaking, not only using the classic pillow case, but also every detail tells us the glorious history of Panerai. The watch’s mirror is perfectly curved, and the surface is coated with anti-glare. We all know that sapphire crystal glass is very difficult to process, but Panerai has faced it. The watchmaker made it into a beautiful arc. It not only tests the skill of watchmaking, but also demonstrates the brand’s innovative spirit.

  The dial structure adopts the design of Panerai in the late 1930s. It is composed of two overlapping sheets. The upper sheet is hollowed out at the position corresponding to the time scale. This makes the bottom scale with a luminous coating better. The light emanates, and time can be read clearly even in extremely weak light. The design of the watch’s chronograph hands is also unique. The seconds hand is distinguished by dazzling blue, which complements the design style of the black dial. A date display window is provided at 3 o’clock, and a small seconds dial is provided at 9 o’clock.

  The crown design of the Panerai watch is unique. The crown protection device is composed of a semi-circular bridge and a mobile protection lever. When the protection lever is in the closed position, it presses the crown to form a good seal. Prevent water from flowing into the movement. Compared with Luminor, Luminor 1950 also uses a unique crown guard, but the production of Luminor 1950 is more detailed. The brushed design of the steel surface is engraved with a logo that symbolizes the quality of the watch.

  The biggest feature of the Luminor 1950 series is that the case is extremely rich in layers and has a strong texture. If you look closely, you can see that the edges and corners where the lugs and the case are connected are beautiful and unique. You must know that for a watch, it is very difficult to polish this shape, but Panerai has done it. At the same time, the watch’s lugs are also made of stainless steel, and the surface is brushed with metal, which is quite textured. It is integrally cast with the case, which is more durable.

  Panerai’s control of the details is very rigorous. The strap is made of high-quality black leather and the light yellow pressure lines are used on both sides, which not only creates a strong contrast in hue, but also adds a strong retro color to the watch. . The buckle is a matte stainless steel pin buckle with a unique design and is engraved with the Panerai classic LOGO as a decoration.

  From this perspective, we can clearly feel the beauty of Luminor 1950’s design. A beautifully curved line runs through one-third of the case. The edges and corners are very polished. This is the difference between Luminor 1950 and other series. There are two timing function buttons at 8 o’clock and 10 o’clock. The flyback function is controlled by the button at 8 o’clock, which can instantly return the chronograph hand to the zero position and restart the operation immediately.

  The back of the case is equipped with a 12-sided case back. Through the central sapphire crystal window, you can enjoy the homemade P.9100 movement. P.9100 is the first self-winding movement developed by Panerai with a chronograph function. It is completely developed by Panerai’s watchmaking factory in Neuchâtel. Its material and process standards meet the technical and quality And reliability. The movement is 31 mm in diameter and 8.15 mm thick and contains 37 gems and 302 components. The two barrels connected in parallel can provide a power reserve of 72 hours, which is equivalent to three days. The bi-directional rotating rotor is automatically wound. The balance wheel, which vibrates 28,800 times per hour, is supported by a single piece bridge plate with anti-vibration device. Four square-head screws are installed on the outer edge of the balance wheel. The speed is adjusted. This movement design highlights the Italian decoration style, which is simple but not simple.

Summary: Panerai Luminor 1950 series 3-day power reserve flyback chronograph watch has distinctive brand design elements, continues the design inspiration of the sea, and uses the P.9100 movement independently developed by Panerai for the first time. Another outstanding work. The watch combines Italian design style and Swiss expertise to interpret Panerai’s distinctive brand characteristics.
