Franck Muller Cintrée Curvex Master Imperial Tourbillon

Franck Muller‘s passion for watches began in 1973 when he was enrolled in watchmaking school at the age of 15. His successful career as a watchmaker witnessed the ebb and flow of trends until the early 1980s when the quartz movement caused drastic changes in the Swiss watch industry.

It was then that Muller realized that this electronic technology would not be a fad, and by 1991, the watchmaker established his own brand to protect the craft and art of his life’s commitment to complex functions.

As one of the first independent watchmakers to pursue interesting case shapes, Muller created his own design language. Today, his name has become synonymous with the tonneau shape, and the dial is decorated with curved sapphire crystal glass, from super whimsical to refined tradition.

The CintréeCurvex Master Empire Tourbillon is a fantastic example of what the Franck Muller brand represents: the tourbillon embraces the barrel case in a special finishing, so that the entire watch is not just dialed into a model.

The platinum case of the Cintrée Curvex Master Imperial Tourbillon provides an unconventional frame for the beautiful hot blue steel hands with luminescence, Arabic numerals flipped below 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock, and a charming tourbillon with hand-engraved arms. The guilloche pattern on the dial allows the mechanism to radiate energy.

Turn the fashion watches over and a few hot blue screws match the ingeniously engraved movement. This craft has almost become a secret handshake between the French Mullan craftsman and the wearer.

Cintrée Curvex Master Imperial Tourbillon is an extremely successful example of Mueller’s influence on the independent watchmaking industry. The Franck Muller brand was born partly in response to the quartz crisis and a lifelong passion for watchmaking. It uses traditional and unique modern design language to create a truly amazing library of works.

Breitling cockpit B50 and B55 EXOSPACE review

Breitling announced the launch of Emergency II in March 2014, which surprised the world (Baselworld to be precise). This watch is not only the first ever watch with a SARSAT personal positioning beacon, but its price is more than twice that of the outgoing Emergency and customers, and the base diameter is reduced by 51mm. However, both the media and the public like it. There is no doubt that Emergency II is a beautifully-looking timepiece.

Fast forward one year, Breitling once again swept the world with the brand new Cockpit B50, adopting the same aesthetic design as the acclaimed Emergency II.

Grey and black dial versions are also available.

This is such an ingenious introduction because it allows customers who cannot wear the 51mm Emergency II and honestly cannot afford it to have the same gorgeous case and dial design. It also brought the greatest initial fanfare to their first in-house quartz movement, which is usually the most feature-rich movement Breitling has ever made.

Understandably, the B50 was an immediate success. No other product on the market can match the complexity of this ultimate professional tool watch.

I believe the super watch is finally here.


The functions and personalized instructions of the Cockpit B50 and B55 are described in detail in the 50-page manual. I will do my best to simply praise the highlights:

The time and the second time zone are simply set to hour increments and decrements from UTC. It also provides 15-minute and 30-minute time zone differences.

The 2 time zones can be exchanged with the main time and a button press. This will then be reflected in the alert and time recorded in the pilot log function.

The minute and hour hands can effectively “pause” at 9:15 to view the digital display without interruption, if the information depicted is particularly interesting or important.

Double-tap the crown to “lock” the watch to a function. This allows the current function to be undisturbed even if any button is pressed. The alarm clock can be arranged every week, weekend or any number of days of the week. The alarm has a vibration option, which can be used with or without an audible alarm. The analog time display can display digital time, date, day of the week, or week number of the year. B50 and B55 charge from the magnetic connector on the left side of the case. This takes a few hours and then lasts about three months, depending on usage. The display option highlights the battery level as a percentage.

Once the power reaches 10%, all functions of the watch will be removed and enter the time-only mode. This allows the watch to be used when the user is away from the charger. The 100 th /second flyback chronograph has a minute and second function. When the wrist is moved to a position that is 30 degrees from the horizontal (in other words, the usual position the watch dial is moved to so that it can be viewed), the backlight can be programmed to light up. The speedometer of the chronograph can be set to a variety of measurement types. Kilometers/hour, meters/second, knots/hour, etc. Pilot functions include 20 flight log logs, including take-off time and date, landing time, and date and duration. There is also a task elapsed time function that allows a countdown timer to be preset and then automatically switched to counting operation. The 100 th /second Lap Timer with 50 laps of memory can record a single event up to 99 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds. The countdown timer can be set to an impressive 99 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds.

B55 Outer space:

Breitling is not a brand with a crown, now it has launched the authoritative multi-function watch with the above-mentioned B55 Exospace.

This cleverly takes advantage of everything the excellent B50 can do, and allows owners to use free Ios or Android apps to operate and personalize their watches for their smartphones.

The only negative aspect of the B50 is its most positive aspect: the absolute depth of functionality and personalization of the two buttons and the crown. Navigating through countless menus will never be a chore, but it can become time-consuming. Likewise, it is difficult to remember all the contents of the 50-page manual. (The manual is included in the B55 application).

Therefore, having all these interactions in a large screen format that is easy to use, easy to view, and easy to follow is a godsend.

The case aesthetics are slightly different, and the dial is almost the same as the B50. The buttons now have artificial screws on the safety collar, the flawless laser-etched bezel has a polished rider label, and the Breitling logo at 12 o’clock reflects the high-end status of this digital/analog watch. The overall appearance is more clinical and practical, but both designs are equally purposeful.

All titanium, rubber titanium and night mission versions

Due to its length and circumference, B55 is more comfortable on ordinary wrists than B50. Breitling’s new Diver Pro III rubber strap uses a patented synthetic material, which is comfortable to wear at all times, especially when paired with an incrementally adjustable button buckle unit.

The new rubber strap specifically designed for the B55 is the best Breitling rubber strap I have ever seen. The blue hue is well chosen, and I also want to reflect the Bluetooth connection, as is the newly designed hand.

Connecting Bluetooth to my smartphone is easy because I followed simple and easy-to-understand instructions. Once the iOS or Android application is downloaded to the phone and the Bluetooth connection is enabled for the two devices, a password will be displayed on the online shop for watch, and then the password must be entered on the phone.

The application is easy to use and controls all aspects of the B55. Personalization also proceeds to the nth level through the app. If necessary, you can store the lap timer, mission elapsed time, and flight log information on your phone. The application does not provide a paper manual, but each page has its own instruction panel.

Every time you enter the app on your phone, it will automatically turn on your Bluetooth (because it is well known that you should not keep it turned on unless you need it). Set B55 to always connect, and the two will synchronize automatically.

Therefore, after you read the above content, here is a quick challenge: if you want to design a multifunctional analog/digital watch, can you improve the Cockpit B50 and B55 Exospace? Unlike mechanical movements, we all know that with the continuous miniaturization of electronic devices, incredible functions can be performed in very small microprocessors. So, your limitation is almost your imagination.

Breitling’s developers and designers value this more than any other watch manufacturer to date.

Even when I give a passionate (some say a nerd) speech on escapement, perpetual calendar, tourbillon, etc., I can easily end it in a few minutes or so. With Cockpit B50 or B55 Exospace, I just try to introduce a lot of features and personalization to the audience. This may take more than ten minutes! For the lucky purchasers of these exquisite wrist instruments, it takes more than an hour to read and use the manual. Believe me, I have done it myself.

So, how long does it take to first conceive a wish list for the Cockpit B50 and then implement it? By the way, this is a rhetorical question, but it makes me feel incredible about the engineering and design thinking level of B50 and B55.

Breitling’s continuous improvement attitude has created the B55 Exospace. This is their clever answer to connected watches or smart watches as they are commonly called. Because Cockpit B50 is aimed at professionals, especially pilots, they need a multi-function timepiece and an easy-to-use interface, so there is no real need for a heart rate monitor or the number of steps performed in a day, etc. (By the way, it is well known that the latter function in smart watches is inaccurate and susceptible to interference). Instead, Breitling created Ios and Android applications that allow you to fully control your B55 from your smartphone.

Another benefit of this connection option is that unlike all other smart watches, the watch will never be out of date because there is no firmware update, and any software update is related to the phone itself.

Both watches are made of sapphire glass and titanium case and are water resistant to 100 meters. If you are not a professional deep-sea diver, this is what you need. Therefore, you can wear these smart watches anytime, anywhere without worry. They are indeed the only watch you need.

One negative factor I need to point out is that the range of the Bluetooth connection is only about 10m. Of course, this is usually not a problem, because your smartphone is usually placed in your pocket, backpack, jacket, etc. But I do feel that if this range is expanded, it will allow you to roam your house, office, etc. freely in a room, but you will still receive notifications.

In addition, the application is currently not available for some older smartphones. I have no problem running the application on a non-current Samsung 5 Neo.If there are any upgrades in the future, I hope to see the GPS function of every smartphone transfer to the B55. This can take the flight log to another level as one of many potential benefits.One benefit not mentioned in the marketing materials released by Breitling is that if you put the B55 at home by mistake, you can set the alarm on your phone to find the watch.So, all in all, if you want or even need the most accurate, feature-rich and easy-to-use watch, then the Cockpit B50 or B55 Exospace is designed for you.The B50 and B55 are the ultimate digital/analog watches, and they are likely to remain in this state for a long time.

In Breitling’s long and glorious history, their slogan “Professional Instruments” has never been more important.

Hands-on De Bethune DB28 Steel Wheels Sapphire Tourbillon

Last year, De Bethune celebrated the 10th anniversary of its flagship DB28 model and the 2nd anniversary of the hollow DB28 Steel Wheels. The idea behind the first DB28 Steel Wheels in 2018 was to open the dial to show the modern architecture of the movement. With the appearance of this DB28 Steel Wheels Sapphire Tourbillon during Geneva Watch Day in August 2020, De Bethune has created a more attractive dial view and combined it with a higher technical complexity due to the presence of the tourbillon. The translucent blue sapphire on the bridge not only enhances the visual effect, but also adds a sense of elegance to this already otherworldly watch.

Blue is the color we all associate with De Bethune, especially the intense electric blue of hot blue titanium that Denis Flageollet accidentally found in the workshop. Now made of blue sapphire crystal, the iconic triangular bridge in the center of the dial rises to cater to your gaze. The blue sapphire is opaque, but translucent, adding a charming element. As with the first DB28 steel wheel in 2018, the central area of ​​the triangular bridge has been removed to show part of the movement. Below the sapphire bridge, you can see two barrels with drum covers, also protected by a thin layer of blue sapphire.

All blue sapphire glass parts are designed by Denis Flageollet, the founder and master watchmaker of De Bethune. The sapphire is then laser cut and trimmed with polished titanium, which is a modern interpretation of the art of stained glass windows. Just to give you an idea of ​​the work involved, the thickness of each sapphire crystal component is different: for example, the bridge is 1 mm thick with a polished titanium frame, while the barrel cover is only 0.3 mm thick, surrounded by Exquisite frame in blue titanium.

The hour and minute hands are also hollow, hand-made in De Bethune’s studio in l’Auberson. The hour hand is a work of art that combines sandblasted steel, titanium and blue titanium to match the blue color palette of the watch.

Instead of the traditional spherical moon of the DB28, a fast-rotating, ultra-light 30-second tourbillon is fixed by a hollow bridge. Denis Flageollet is an ardent admirer of traditional watchmaking, and pays tribute to Breguet’s tourbillon with a modern cyclone device. In order to compensate for the dynamics of movement, the cage must be as light as possible and run at maximum frequency and rotation speed, while keeping weight and inertia to a minimum. The tourbillon is made of titanium and silicon, composed of 63 parts, vibrates 36,000 times per hour, and the lightweight frame rotates once every 30 seconds. The frame weighs only 0.18 grams, making it the lightest tourbillon frame ever.

Another distinguishing feature of DB28 is the fascinating sense of depth created on the dial. Tilted titanium hour rings with minute dents are located on the flange, and spherical polished titanium hour markers are located on the blue titanium ring. By keeping the hour markers on the periphery, the remaining space on the dial can be used for performances. The dial has different heights, shapes, finishes and volumes, creating a vibrant stage. The elevated central bridge hovering above the movement, the hollow bridge that holds the tourbillon in its deep well, the area that actually falls into the gap, the exquisite finish and clear teeth of the gear train and barrel, and the contrasting materials Extraordinary interest in the dial.

The DB28 model of DE BETHUNE, launched in 2010, is the backbone of the brand. It is characterized by its floating articulated lugs, a triangular bridge on the dial, a crown at 12 o’clock and its futuristic style. DB28 won the coveted gold award just one year after the birth of the 2011 version of GPHG. Over the years, it has adopted various appearances, from the blue tourbillon version with the cosmic blue suit in 2018 to the steel wheel with skeleton movement in 2018; from the 2015 black matte version to the sporty DB28GS; from The all-black shadow will be a somewhat outdated digital version in 2014, the DB28 digital version. In 2019, we met Blond BOMBSHELL MELLOW YELLOW and produced three ultra-thin models called DB28XP in 2020 to celebrate its tenth anniversary, followed by an open-hole steel application Program and application table.

The shape of things in the future
The DB28 case is a triumph of futuristic design, but it also pays homage to certain classic watchmaking traditions that Denis Flageollet cherishes. The crown at 12 o’clock is a tribute to traditional pocket watches, and the perfect finish related to traditional art or craftsmanship runs through.

The structure of the case is unique and defines the personality of DB28. From the inflatable part to the hollow area of ​​the lugs, everything implies lightness and fluidity. Made of grade 5 titanium, the highest level of mirror polishing gives it a shiny reflective surface that is more vivid and brighter than stainless steel. In order to achieve fascinating reflections and light and shadow effects, titanium is mirror-polished by hand for several days with boxwood grindstone and diamond paste. The case is wide and 43 mm in diameter, but the height is relatively thin, 9.80 mm. Thanks to the use of titanium, this watch is very lightweight on the wrist. Although it is wide, the movable lugs (with variable geometry) mean that the watch fits the wrist perfectly. Sharp-eyed fans of the DB28, which was completely redesigned last year, will notice that the tip of the spring bar that holds the strap in place is bullet-shaped, reminiscent of De Bethune’s first collection. The finishing touch is the elegant super soft black alligator leather strap with a polished titanium buckle.

The back of the men watches brands provides a very different panorama. The bridge is impeccably decorated with a circular texture, which obscures most of the landscape. You will also find a blue hand, which corresponds to the blue steel linear power reserve indicator around the movement. The double barrel is powered by De Bethune’s manual winding movement DB2019V5, ensuring a strong 5-day power reserve. As mentioned earlier, the tourbillon is equipped with a silicon escape wheel with a frequency of 36,000vph.

2021: Purnell Escape II absolute sapphire

Luxury Purnell ESCAPE II ABSOLUTE SAPPHIRE Replica watch

2021: Purnell Escape II absolute sapphire. The world’s first dual three-axis tourbillon with a full sapphire case.

Purnell, a Swiss watchmaker known for only producing tourbillon movements, was inspired by performance, precision and mechanical strength to double its concept and bring more future to the watch industry than in the past. Only one year after the brand was launched at the Geneva Watch and Miracle Exhibition in 2020, Purnell has left its mark on contemporary fine watchmaking, not only with its unmistakable Spherion, but also with its integration into the Vallée de Joux from beginning to end. Local manufacturing processes head to the brand’s new headquarters in Rue du Rhône in Geneva, which includes a sophisticated showroom that welcomes customers.

At the 2021 Watch and Miracle Exhibition, the brand launched the world’s first dual three-axis tourbillon with a full sapphire case, a movement plywood and a sapphire dial. The fastest three-axis tourbillon in the world, named “Spherion”, each frame is set with 152 brilliant-cut diamonds. The purest transparent form highlights the best products created by Purnell: pure Swiss manufacturing technology and the world’s fastest dual three-axis tourbillon movement. What you don’t see here is the most important.

The 48 mm case, dial, power reserve, hour gear train and dial bridge are all made of transparent sapphire, revealing the six ingeniously constructed barrels that power the diamond-studded double Spherion movement. Purnell Escape II Absolute Sapphire is equipped with applied blue baguette sapphire hour markers, which is a unique work.

The CEO of Maurizio Mazzocchi Purnell said: “After several years of research and development, I am very happy to launch the complete Sapphire Escape II series, which enhances the light appearance of the movement and the charming Spherion movement. This year will launch a series with other colors Sapphire’s unique works, such as: pink, green and blue. I look forward to showing you this collection in person digitally during Watches & Wonders 2021.

To make this cheap watches requires 23 sapphire blocks-the processing process consumes 80% of the original quality. Sapphire grows below 2,050 degrees Celsius, can withstand high temperatures up to 1,000 degrees Celsius, and is scratch-resistant, except for diamonds. Purnell’s Swiss partner Novo Cristal in La Chaux-de-Fonds guarantees flawless sapphire transparency, which is achieved by using the highest purity alumina crystals and the diamond grain size used in the polishing process. In the last step, it is a polishing process that achieves extremely fine diamond grain size. The machining and polishing process requires a total of 150 hours, excluding development and machine programming and the growth of sapphire block cells.

Purnell Escape II Absolute Sapphire is powered by the manual winding movement CP03 Double Spherion with Diamond Set Cages. This is the fastest dual three-axis tourbillon in the world; it is called “Spherion” by its inventor and talented watchmaker Eric Kudley. The movement consists of 386 parts, 67 jewels and the mainspring are assembled in four barrels arranged in parallel-four overlapping in two barrels. The movement has two engraved visible barrel covers, and the total weight of the movement is 15.7 grams.

Due to its differential system, the fastest three-axis tourbillon completes its rotation in 8 seconds, while the inner frame completes in 16 seconds, and the secondary frame completes in 30 seconds. The blue titanium of the frame is set with 304 brilliant-cut diamonds. The 48 mm sapphire case is extremely transparent, and the watch is equipped with a transparent translucent rubber strap. Grade 5 titanium pin buckle.

Panerai Brabus Black Ops special limited edition Submersible S watch

New product: TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300

TAG Heuer cheap has added 3 colors to the Aquaracer Professional 300 series, including the return of Night Diver, allowing the wearer to go beyond the edge and explore in depth.

The new launch follows the release of the Torino Diving Professional 300 series in April G Watch and Miracle Geneva, and TAG Heuer has added three new watch families, including the iconic, all black, lume Ming Dial Diving Professional 300 Night The new iteration of divers.

Our initial reaction to the new version was very positive, especially the Night Diver model, whose all-luminous dial looks white during the day, but is completely illuminated in the dark. The usual qualities associated with TAG Heuer watches, especially the Aquaracer series, have always existed. This is a good thing, because the manufacturing quality is very good, and the watch is sturdy and durable, equivalent to any task at hand, such as a dive watch or a tool watch. The construction is always in place and executed very well. We also like to use two different luminous colors to distinguish the touch of the hour and minute hands-making it easier to identify, especially when the watch can be taken to dark, gloomy depths, given its 300m waterproof rating. The black DLC coated case is very stylish and adds personality to Night Diver.

TAG Heuer fans will recognize the name “Night Diver”, which was first introduced in the mid-1980s. Loved by active and fashion-conscious watch buyers, they continue to push their limits, explore nature, and transcend the edge to become one of the most famous sports watches of the time.

Today’s Aquaracer Professional 300 series tells this story. TAG Heuer’s design, engineering and heritage teams have worked together to faithfully update this beloved watch, retaining and improving iconic details, such as the famous 12-sided bezel and the horizontal engraved lines of the dial to create A sophisticated and versatile modern classic.

Launched three new Aquaracer Professional 300 models
Today’s Aquaracer Professional 300 drop adds three more models to the eight models announced in April, bringing the series to 11 models. All three new models are sold in unlimited quantities and enter the core series, each equipped with a 43 mm stainless steel case and rubber strap, equipped with TAG Heuer (TAG Heuer) innovative adjustable folding clasp.

The new black and blue versions continue the bracelet models launched on Watches and Wonders: both are color-themed, with black or blue dials, ceramic bezel inserts and rubber straps.

The outstanding model of this version is the black DLC-coated Night Diver, adding Aquaracer Professional 300 Tribute to Ref. 844 as the hero of the series. Its stainless steel case, bezel, crown, back cover and buckle are all coated with a matt black diamond-like carbon coating called DLC, a high-performance, wear-resistant coating designed for use in extreme conditions And design. The bezel insert is highly durable black ceramic.

Another iconic feature of Night Diver is its all-luminous dial, which is coated with a green Super-LumiNova® luminous coating to provide excellent luminous performance. To ensure that it remains clear and legible even in very low light conditions, the minute hand and central seconds hand of the watch are painted with blue luminous, which contrasts sharply with the green of the dial. The hour hand and the octagonal hour markers at 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock are filled with green luminous, and the remaining octagonal hour markers are decorated with black lacquer edges. The triangle on the unidirectional rotating bezel at 12 o’clock is essential for accurate and safe measurement of diving time. It is also full of eye-catching blue luminous light that matches the blue of the minute hand and central second hand. fake watches form china

The details don’t stop there. Like the eight watches in the release series, the three new watches use the six iconic features that have defined TAG Heuer diving watches since 1983: unidirectional rotating bezel, screw-in crown, and water resistance at least It is 200 meters, luminous marking, scratch-resistant crystal and double safety clasp. These real-world functions have become the backbone of the model’s design, and have been reassuring underwater explorers for the past four years.

The form has many further details to enhance its luxury and performance. The 12 sides of the bezel are all faceted for easy grasping, the crown is protected to prevent accidental damage, and there is a magnifying glass above the date, which is integrated under the sapphire crystal mirror, which is smooth to the touch.

All of this is based on the iconic horizontal engraved lines of the Aquaracer dial. These have also been improved for the new generation of watches. Compared with the previous iteration of Aquaracer, they are now slightly farther apart, giving the watch an elegant and refined appearance.

Like the release series, the three new Aquaracer Professional 300 models all use the TAG Heuer Calibre 5 automatic movement. They all have a sturdy bottom cover with the famous scaphander wetsuit printed on it and equipped with 12-sided panels. All Aquaracer Professional 300 models are water resistant up to 300 meters (30 bar, 1,000 feet).

Each new Aquaracer Professional 300 model is equipped with a beautifully designed integrated rubber strap, equipped with TAG Heuer’s newly developed adjustable buckle system.

The fine-tuning system developed by TAG Heuer engineers means that this adjustment can be made to extremely small tolerances. This is done by pinching and sliding the button on the side of the clasp. The clasp also has double safety buttons to prevent accidental unlocking.

These straps will be tailored at TAG Heuer boutiques or authorized dealers as part of the assembly process. Then, the wearer can freely adjust the strap to adapt to the wetsuit, or just reflect changes in environmental conditions, thereby causing the wrist to expand or contract.

MB&F-Legacy Machine Perpetual in Palladium

MB&F’s Legacy Machine Perpetual was first launched in 2015 and has since been made of various metals, including red gold, platinum, white gold, titanium and gold.

This year, the Swiss brand launched Legacy Machine Perpetual made of palladium. This new limited edition of 25 pieces is made of palladium 950, a rare lightweight platinum group metal.

The 44mm x 17.5mm case sets off the aquamarine sunray dial, the tone of which varies between light blue, green and gray.

This new Palladium version integrates new ergonomic corrector buttons at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock. MB&F was first launched in 2020 with the sporty Legacy Machine Perpetual EVO.

The Legacy Machine Perpetual is powered by a fully integrated 581 component movement. Its suspended 14 mm balance wheel vibrates at 18,000 vibrations per hour on the dial side, allowing the wearer to appreciate this fascinating spectacle.

The hour and minute subdial is located at 12 o’clock, between the elegant arches of the balance wheel. Other indications are: day of the week at 3 o’clock, power reserve indicator at 4 o’clock, month at 6 o’clock, retrograde leap year indicator at 7 o’clock, and date at 9 o’clock.

This hand-wound movement is equipped with polished bevels, Côtes de Genève and hand-engraved top finishes. It is equipped with a double barrel and provides a 72-hour power reserve.

Unlike the traditional perpetual calendar mechanism that uses a 31-day month as the default month and “removes” the extra dates in months with fewer days, Legacy Machine Perpetual uses a mechanical processor that utilizes the default 28-day month and adds extra days as necessary. This means that there is always an accurate number of days in each month; there is no fast forward or skip over extra days.

Other advantages of this state-of-the-art movement are that it is equipped with a dedicated quick setting button to simplify leap year adjustment, and to avoid possible mechanical problems, the adjuster button is automatically deactivated when the calendar changes. replica watches usa

Zenith Chronomaster Original Premium Edition

Buy Replica Zenith CHRONOMASTER ORIGINAL Men Watch 03.3200.3600/34.C869

Zenith opened the door of a special boutique at the Le Locle factory and displayed a cool blue Chronomaster Original.

The chronograph function is a Zenith tradition, and it has been since the launch of the iconic El Primero automatic high-frequency movement in 1969. The Chronomaster series provides contemporary and historical inspired works, and is the perfect platform for Zenith to showcase its complication capabilities, especially the Chronomaster Sport and the recently launched Chronomaster Original, a 38mm model that is regarded as the successor to the A386. Today, Zenith has launched two new reference materials in this series to celebrate the opening of an important location; the brand-new Zenith Manufacture Boutique, an immersive environment in the brand’s headquarters. This is the new and attractive Zenith Chronomaster Original Boutique Edition.

Zenith decided to open a boutique in the factory to allow visitors to immerse themselves in Zenith’s world and let them get close to the brand collection after making an appointment. This is basically no different from other boutiques, but Zenith also provides people with the service of a three-tiered watch clinic at the manufacturer’s premises, depending on the individual’s prior knowledge and skills.

Although all this sounds good, Zenith fake also launched two new references in the Chronomaster series to fan out for this occasion. It is based on the familiar features of Chronomaster Original, which is very similar to the original Zenith A386 El Primero from 1969. The case has a brushed surface and polished decoration, with a classic pump button on the right side. The raised and domed crystals cover the front and back of the watch. The sharp faceted lugs complete the look of this must-have El Primero watch. The Chronomaster Original is only 38 mm in diameter, making it comfortable to wear.

The Chronomaster Original Boutique Edition is mainly a visual upgrade of the existing models, as it always uses a new blue and silver color scheme. The striking blue dial is equipped with a silver chronograph and indexes. Faceted and rhodium-plated hour markers help improve the legibility of the current time, as well as white hands with black inserts. The hands and hour markers are coated with Super LumiNova. From left to right, the sub-registers display the running seconds, 60-minute accumulator and 60-second accumulator.

As the external scale of the dial implies, Zenith’s Chronomaster Original Boutique Edition is equipped with Zenith’s El Primero 3600 movement. This integrated automatic chronograph movement can track the elapsed time to 1/10 second and can also be found in the Chronomaster Sport. It runs at a high frequency of 36,000vph (or 5Hz), which means that the chronograph second hand rotates once every 10 seconds. In addition, it uses a column wheel and a horizontal coupling. The power reserve is a very pleasant 60 hours. From the bottom cover, its appearance is obviously the appearance of El Primero, but the decoration is more modern, including a hollow rotor with a Star logo.

Zenith Chronomaster Original Boutique Edition is equipped with a vintage-style blue calfskin strap (Ref. 03.3200.3600/51.C902) or a three-link stainless steel bracelet (Ref. Ref. 03.3200.3600/51.M3200).

Girard Perregaux launches three fly bridge tourbillon

Reimagine the icon.

The three-gold bridge tourbillon was invented in 1860 and is synonymous with fake Girard Perregaux. Its unique and impressive design is still the watchmaker’s flagship movement a century and a half later. Since the modern revival in 1981, the three-bridge tourbillon has continued to evolve to keep up with contemporary tastes, resulting in variants like Neo Bridges, which have smooth arched bridges.

Earlier this year, GP Girard-Perregaux introduced the latest three-bridge, which completely eliminated the bottom plate and produced a floating transparent movement. Now, the brand has finally launched a luxury version of this watch, more eye-catching in rose gold and black-the three fly bridge tourbillon.

My opinion on the recent iteration of the Three Bridges is lukewarm, because I find that the redesigned design often blurs the original identity of the movement-these designs try to be modern but not fully realized-but the latest version has changed my mind. Flying Bridges is clean and streamlined, creating a magnificent, unobstructed view of the mechanical structure, and enhancing the mechanical structure by choosing the correct color and structure.

From a technical point of view, the fly bridge is an interesting watch. The components that make up the timing system—the barrel, the gear train, and the tourbillon adjuster—are arranged linearly and vertically, just like the historic three bridges. But now they are supported by three horizontal bridges on both sides of the movement, which are fixed to the case instead of the traditional bottom plate, making the movement ventilated and transparent. Girard Perregaux Tourbillon Three Flying Bridges

The only shortcoming of the watch is not inherent-the fly bridge design is often iterated, resulting in countless versions that reduce the prominence and appeal of complex functions. This makes it difficult to keep track of which patterns are in the typical version, which is a problem because most collectors want only three bridges in a collection.

Thanks to the skeleton movement, the movement structure is clear at a glance. The movement is wound by a micro-rotor hidden under the uppermost bridge coaxial with the barrel, and its gear train is vertical from the barrel to the six o’clock position, where the tourbillon is located.

The hour and minute hands and the center wheel below are held by a second bridge, while the tourbillon is supported by a third bridge.

The execution of the bridge makes this movement unique. Unlike the earlier version of the three bridges, which used large arrow-shaped bridges modeled on 19th century pocket watches, the new bridges are stylish and aerodynamic. luxury swiss watches

It is worth noting that the curvature and height of the bridge plate are made obvious by the two-color finish: the bridge plate on the front is made of pure gold, but painted in matte black, and then the edges are manually chamfered with gentian sticks to achieve exposure The gold below. This gives the splint a golden outline, and the angle of the mirror finish brings out the elegance and quality of the movement.

However, the bridges on the back take a simpler form—they are also painted in black, but are made of titanium instead of gold, and have no angles for manual inlays. In other words, the overall processing of the movement is well done, as evidenced by the bevels on the wheel spokes, which include some inward and outward angles.
