Swiss Radar New Hyperchrome Chocolate Brown High-tech Ceramic Watch

(Linno, Switzerland-March 2015) RADO has always been known for its outstanding Swiss quality, award-winning design and unrivalled material skills. The preciousness of Swiss Rado high-tech ceramic watches lies not only in the characteristics that are not easy to wear, but also in their elegant appearance and excellent wearing comfort.
Three gorgeous choices unveiled
   Thanks to the continuous research and development in recent years, Swiss Rado watches are constantly introducing new high-tech ceramic materials: from the first black high-tech ceramics to the elegant launch of white high-tech ceramic watches; at the same time, Swiss Rado is also the first The brand using plasma high-tech ceramics, beyond the imagination, makes the watch shine with a warm gray metallic luster even though it does not contain any metal components.

   Today, the Rado, with its sleek design and high-tech ceramics, adds a new color-chocolate brown. The chocolate brown, which is well known to connoisseurs of Swiss craftsmanship, is the iconic color of Maîtres Chocolatiers chocolate, and it is this brand that makes Switzerland the embodiment of chocolate heaven. As the light changes throughout the day, the exquisite high-tech ceramic surface can fully reflect the light and shadow colors from deep dark chocolate to sweet light brown, creating the ultimate artistic effect. The surface temperature of high-tech ceramics can change with the temperature of the wearer. The excellent touch makes the beauty of rich colors extend with the fingertips. The chocolate brown high-tech ceramics create the dual enjoyment of senses and vision.
Concentration of alcohol

   The new chocolate brown high-tech ceramics are the first to be used on three watches of the RADO Hao Xing series. The limited edition of the Swiss Rado Hao Xing diamond series automatic mechanical watch perfectly interprets the rich brilliance of chocolate brown high-tech ceramics and shows the outstanding craftsmanship. Rose gold parts and chocolate brown high-tech ceramics complement each other, 56 top Wesselton diamonds complement the watch, making this extraordinary watch a sensual and attractive focus, and the chocolate brown high-tech ceramic case back Limited edition number (XXX / 600).

   The limited edition of the RADO Rado Star Speed ​​Automatic Chronograph also uses chocolate brown high-tech ceramics. The designers of the Swiss Radar boldly adopted the contrast design of the matte brown high-tech ceramic case and the polished dark brown bezel. The bezel is engraved with a speed scale and covered with a white Super-LumiNova® luminous coating. Rose gold PVD stainless steel inserts, crown and chronograph buttons echo the rose gold details of the dial. The dial features a swivel anchor mark unique to the Swiss Rado automatic. Limited edition number (XXX / 999) engraved on the chocolate brown high-tech ceramic case back.
   Watches in this new color also include the RADO Haustell automatic mechanical watch, dark brown polished ceramic case with side inserts and rose gold PVD-coated steel crown. The brown dial with rose gold hands, black trim, and luminous coating are embedded in the brown bezel, and the anti-glare curved sapphire mirror on both sides completes the look of the watch. The 21-stone automatic mechanical movement and the black automatic top are clearly visible on the brown polished high-tech ceramic sapphire case back; this model uses a three-row matte brown high-tech ceramic outer chain link, and the polished brown high-tech ceramic middle chain link With titanium tri-fold clasp.
   RADO is always committed to the vision of excellence and long-lasting beauty. Swiss radars process ceramic components at extremely high temperatures in a specially developed sintering furnace to achieve this new color. As we all know, the sintering process of high-tech ceramics is extremely difficult to control, and the precise processing of the color of high-tech ceramics materials is undoubtedly once again highlighting the status of the Swiss Radar as a material master.

Companion Of Airborne Paratroopers – Ball Watch Ball Engineer Series Hydrocarbon Chronograph Watch

Ball Ball Watch is proud of its American railway tradition and is now proudly introducing the new Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Airborne. Its unique design enables the wearer to withstand the harsh environment that the US airborne paratroopers need to face. It combines cutting-edge watchmaking technology, unparalleled waterproof and shock resistance, and high-performance design.
The U.S. Airborne Troops are the most experienced and frequently deployed units in the U.S. National Armed Forces. The U.S. Airborne Paratroopers need to perform their missions in the harshest environments behind the enemy, and therefore need the most waterproof and shockproof performance and the most reliable equipment support. Ball Watch specifically engraved the logo of the US Air Force Rescue Force on the caseback of this new watch model to pay tribute to the unit. This U.S. special airborne unit is mainly responsible for rescue operations and providing medical needs to soldiers on the ground. The table also bears the famous motto of the US Air Force’s rescue force, ‘That others may live.’

The stainless steel case of Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Airborne has a diameter of 42 mm and contains an ETA 2836-2 self-winding movement. Its accuracy is certified by the Swiss Observatory. In addition to displaying the time, the watch has day and date windows at three o’clock and four thirty, respectively, showing daily important time information. The black dial design is simple and eye-catching, with round fine engraving and protected by anti-glare sapphire crystal glass. In addition, the minute scale is engraved on the dial flange to make the watch more layered.
Airborne paratroopers often have to parachute and experience different severe environments, which means that they are often hit. In view of this, the Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Airborne is equipped with the latest patented ‘spring lock’ system from Ballox, which is a movement specially developed by Ball Watch to ensure accurate movement. The hairspring is surrounded by a ‘protective case’, which can absorb the energy generated when the watch is subjected to external impacts; the impact of these external impacts is enough to make the average movement time of ordinary mechanical movements as fast as about 60 seconds per day. The ‘hairspring lock’ anti-vibration system can effectively reduce the running time error by as much as 66%, thereby ensuring that the movement of the mechanical movement is accurate.
In addition, the patented crown lock protection system complements the case design, further enhancing the accuracy of the watch’s timekeeping. All models of the Engineer Hydrocarbon series are equipped with this function, protecting the crown directly connected to the movement from the impact from the outside. The rigorous construction and design of the watch allow it to be magnetically shielded to 4,800 A / m and to withstand shocks up to 5,000 Gs.
When designing this watch, Ball Watch once again applied advanced ceramic processing technology, adding a strong luminous coating to the ceramic timing ring. Ball Watch is the first watch brand to conceive of combining these two materials, so it can make the digits of the chronograph ring shine in time, so that the wearer can still read clearly in the dark. The ceramic material itself provides the watch’s rotating chronograph outer ring with additional protection against corrosion, scratches and UV light-these are the most common problems encountered by watches worn by paratroopers during high-risk operations. The unidirectional rotation of the chronograph outer ring of this watch prevents the wearer from accidentally shifting the outer ring and extending the originally set time.

For any paratrooper, it is very important to be able to read time at any time, day and night. Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Airborne is the same as other Bohr models. Its hour scale and three hands are inlaid with 3H self-luminous miniature gas lamps. Without relying on any external light or energy, the brightness of the self-luminous micro gas lamp is 100 times higher than that of the traditional traditional luminous paint. The self-luminous miniature gas lamp on the dial is specially embedded on the metal face to enhance the scattering of light.
Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Airborne is equipped with a stainless steel strap with patent-registered ‘foldable’ buckle and ‘extension system’, allowing the wearer to comfortably adjust the strap to the wrist-like tightness, and even wear the watch on clothing Like the paratrooper’s uniform. This new chronograph is even more traditionally packaged, with a specially designed durable watch case and an extra premium rubber strap.
Today, Ball Watch continues to follow the brand’s established route, once again being identified as the leader in the history of watchmaking and the modern adventure timepiece.

Exploration Of Longines Museum Production Archive Exhibition Area

The production archives exhibition area is located on the left-hand side of the entrance of the museum. The small room is neatly lined with top-to-bottom, thick and slightly yellowish documents. These archives record all the secrets of Longines produced from 1867 to 1967-since 1867, each Longines has an independent number, what material each Longines uses and which movement it is equipped with, When and where they are sold are recorded one by one. Even if you are lucky enough to own a 1867 pocket watch, you can definitely find out here the name of the watchmaker who performed the speed test for this watch.

 

Longines Product Register

There are more than 800 information books in the historical archives. Thanks to the development of current technology, the data of Longines can now be queried through computer records. Longines has also scanned these 800 data books into the computer by scanning. , You can now check the details of earlier Longines models directly from your computer. Today, Longines receives about ten to fifteen table friends from all over the world every day to inquire about the details of the watches they bought that year.

 

From the information book opened by the center, we can clearly see some records on it, the model of the year, the movement used in the year, and some details of the watchmaker. It can be seen that Longines’s preservation of these materials is still very complete. For the preservation of early watch information, I think Longines has done a great job in this respect, which can be said to be a continuation of the tradition.

 This table is a workbench of the craftsman at the time. Below the file is a collection of delicate and delicate pocket watches produced by Agassi Workshop in the mid-19th century. At that time there were no watches manufactured under the brand name Longines.

 

Production archives area of ​​Longines Museum

These books outside contain information about some agents who buy Longines watches. These are not arranged according to the serial number, some are organized by area, and some may be organized by some large agents. On the book.

 

The book opened here is some information from some Longines retailers. There are also some staff rules at that time. Because everyone used to work from home at that time, the time was very flexible and scattered, so it was difficult to organize them in the factory for unified management. Therefore, there are so many regulations to make them better obey management.

 

Ernest Francion hired a young engineer called JacquesDavid to assist him in designing machines to improve watchmaking processes and processes. He was invited to participate in the Philadelphia Expo that year and saw some new technologies in other countries. This book contains not only text but also hand-drawn drawings. Gap, so this is also a very important milestone for him to promote the Swiss watchmaking industry in the past to resist other aspects of competition and produce some changes in the production organization. At that time, many Swiss watchmakers were more resistant to the process of mechanical manufacturing, but JacquesDavid and Ernest Francion had very keen intuitions and benefited from it. With their advanced ideas, Longines was also a pioneer of mechanization of Swiss watchmaking at the time.

Jacques Launched The Reverso À Eclipse Hidden Enamel Painted Watch To Pay Tribute To The Master Vincent Van Gogh

The Inextricable Bond Between Aviation And Tasting Breitling Curtis Warhawk Special Edition Watch

Centenary has always had an unusual relationship with the aviation industry. It has witnessed different glorious moments for mankind by virtue of precise and reliable precision instruments with outstanding performance. The experience of working with the aviation industry for so many years has created Breitling’s highly recognizable aesthetic design and presented us with many superb wristwatches. At this year’s Baselworld, Breitling exhibited two chronograph watches and a large three-hand watch to commemorate the friendship with the classic P-40 fighter fighter manufacturer. Next we will take the Pilot 8B01 Chronograph Curtis Warhawk Special Edition as an example to experience this deep cross-border feeling. (Watch model: AB01192A1L1X2)

   The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk fighter was one of the main military fighters of the US Army Aviation Corps during World War II. This famous fighter was manufactured in large quantities from 1938 to 1944. It was during this period that Breitling was building cockpit timers for the Royal Air Force and other Air Force military aircraft. In these new timepieces, Breitling fuses the DNA design elements of aviation watches into the watches, imprinting the friendship between the two parties in the flowing years.

Watch real shot

 
  The watch case is made of stainless steel, and the bezel is the signature groove design of Breitling Aviation chronograph. The sides are polished with a brushed process, and the front of the bezel is polished with a polishing process to highlight the special texture of the metal.

   The two-way rotating bezel is painted with red marks, which is very eye-catching and easy to read the time information.
