Collection Art Watch The Combination Of Painted Art And Precision Movement

Enamel watches and jewellery watches can perfectly realize the dream of painting. They both have superb painting standards, dials with strong visual impact and elegantly designed watch shapes. Like art created by nature. Vacheron Constantin ‘Tchaikovsky Swan Lake’ Enamel Watch
    To commemorate the collaboration with the National Opera in Paris, Vacheron Constantin has launched 15 extraordinary and unique Métiers d’ Art watches. This series of watch dials is inspired by the timeless decorative frescoes on the dome of the Garnier Opera House by Marc Chagall.
     The watch was unveiled at the 5th Journées des Métiers d’ Art event held at the French National Institute of Crafts and Arts (INMA) on April 1, 2011. The Chagall frescoes on the theme of Tchaikovsky’s ‘Swan Lake’ are displayed, and every detail of this grand masterpiece is vividly depicted. The watch is made of high-temperature open flame micro-painted enamel, a Geneva craftsmanship that has been passed down for hundreds of years and is only mastered by a few craftsmen.
Christian Dior LA D DE DIOR OPAL
     The color used on the dial has a strong visual impact, and the ring of diamonds sparkles with joy, embracing this mysterious, always turbulent color. In this warm, hasty but logical hue, there is a vibrant transparency. However, the transparency and lightness surprised me very much. In order to understand it, I stared at these color blocks for a long time with very soft eyes, and found that it glowed with tranquility, a kind of dynamic tranquility and peace that could not be expressed with words. Deep harmony rippling in this atmosphere.
Dewey Golden Afternoon Series
    The Twilight Golden Afternoon Collection uses exquisite mother-of-pearl to make the dial. It’s like a garden full of flowers of all colors, with a breeze blowing from time to time. Flowers of various sizes and shades fly outward from the center, scattered around the dial, poetic. Against the background of the mother-of-pearl sky, the looming clouds and the twelve diamond water lilies intersect to form an illusion-like oil painting full of purity and innocence. The bezel is set with 84 brilliant-cut diamonds, the two straps are set with 48 diamonds, and the dial is set with 14 diamonds. Van Cleef & Arpels Midnight Japanese lacquer watch
     The Japanese master of lacquer ware, Mr. Hase, was invited by Van Cleef & Arpels to create the dial with his exquisite craftsmanship. A series of precious watches can be combined with the subtle beauty of the Midnight case and the precision of the lacquer craftsmanship. The traditional themes of landscape painting are inspired by the master of painter craftsmanship, bringing coolness in summer, and achieving a precious collection of 8 pieces.
HMS Caesar enamel painted gold watch
     Ulysse Nardin, a Swiss luxury watch brand with a close relationship to navigation, launched the ‘HMS Caesar’ gilt enamel painted watch; ‘HMS Caesar’ is a battleship named after Caesar the Great, active in the 19th century At first, in order to praise the glorious deeds of the battleship in the past, the Athens watch was specially crafted with enamel painting. The delicate color changes and transparency all test the painter who made the dial. In addition, the gold wire with more than 500 mm The contour of the thin metal wire is made to prevent the enamel powder from flowing to other color blocks. The entire process takes 50 hours and 26 steps to complete a dial.

Step By Step, See Time Passing

In this year, as long as you live in the city, you will also feel all kinds of impetuousness, to do an experiment, whether you live in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, during the rush hour When you take the subway to change the line, try to stand still for five seconds, to ensure that you do n’t have to take a step, and the crowd behind you will naturally push you forward; you said you were driving, okay, there was a traffic jam on the elevated road. The car is moving, and you are still parked, deliberately vacating the distance of a parking space, the car next to it will naturally be sucked in by a lot of that space, which is like a black hole that leads to the four-dimensional space in ‘Interstellar Crossing’, and follows Your vehicle must also honk and scold you. You said that if I pursue slow work, I can only slow the distance of a car. Yes, but people will say that you run slowly to the countryside to die slowly, please don’t hinder me? Yes, it seems that the beast of the city is so engulfed that even the choice of life is swallowed up. Every day a high-intensity stimulant is injected. Everyone beats the blood and walks away. Even if you feel the moment of time flowing, it seems Will not work.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic

   Is it really not working? I think there are ways. Time is linear and continuous, but in fact, after human beings quantify it into units, it has also evolved the space from one unit to another. It’s about jumping seconds. Of course, in the beginning, the jump seconds are not used to make you slow, but you have to grow into this look. The early table clocks did not have a balance wheel. They used a pendulum and an anchor escapement. Because the escapement fork of the anchor escapement is named like an anchor, the biggest problem of this early structure is that the escapement wheel is unstable. The second escapement has a little jitter, which is also directly displayed on the second hand. In order to solve this problem, deadbeat escapement appeared, which corresponds to the original second hand hyperactivity, so that it is now safe and secure every time it is dead. Of course, this deadbeat structure is very different from today’s skip seconds structure, and the motivations are also very different. Today, there are many reasons for jumping seconds, mainly because it looks good, and some say that our mechanical watches can also make a bounce and a jump in quartz, which is a metaphysical and symbolic victory. It is convenient for doctors to measure the pulse. In one second, the heartbeat can be digitized. There is also a meaning I just added. In the chase of minutes and seconds, you can see the moment between a second and a second. Let the sense of continuous persecution rest.
   Admittedly, jumping the stopwatch also has a Zen flavor.
   The first system is to add an additional pinion, which is connected to the mainspring and is driven by a hairspring. The advantage of this independent jumping seconds system is that it does not affect the operation of the main drive train, so it does not affect the accuracy of the travel time, and can be started and stopped at any time.
   The second system is to derive a second wheel next to the escape wheel. This second wheel is restrained by a hairspring and has a total of 60 teeth. Since this second wheel is directly connected to the escape wheel, this system has a great impact on the travel time accuracy. .
   The third system is the so-called ‘single-frequency escapement’. The escapement system intentionally ‘waits’ the balance wheel to run for two cycles and then advances in order to advance every second.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic

   This year, there are three jumping stopwatches that I personally care about, especially this one of Jaeger-LeCoultre. At least more people can afford it. The steel case is about 60,000. The Jaeger-LeCoultre 770 automatic winding movement is used. There are two focal points. One is the use of an anchor-shaped balance wheel, which reduces weight and resistance, reduces the power loss rate, and makes the output of the swing frequency more stable. Of course, it is mainly mounted between the passing wheel and the second wheel. The function of the low gear is to store the power in the balance spring as usual, and release it just after one second. Let the lower gear drive the second wheel to turn it, making the effect of jumping seconds. Of course, showing the jumping seconds on the Geophysic case is a bonus. Even if the ratio is different from last year’s three hands, this simple flavor, combined with jumping seconds, allows you to really enjoy the mechanical movement. Zen.

Jacques de Rouge Grande Seconde Deadbeat
   The eccentric hours and minutes of the white big fire enamel and the calendar below, the calendar is made into a 360-degree retrograde, which is quite pleasant at first, plus the central seconds jump large second hand, Grande Seconde Deadbeat is to make you feel the taste of going back to the past. The mechanical layout is shown in the figure. A set of skip seconds gear trains is mounted above the escape wheel. The gears on the left and the bottom of the figure have fewer teeth. The swing frequency of this movement is 3Hz, that is, the escapement wheel has an average of six revolutions per second. The gears on it are moved after these six revolutions, and then the central X-shaped pawl is used to move the central seconds. Linking the wheel with the jumping seconds gear is not really complicated, but it is poetic on the creamy dial.

Arnold & Son DSTB

   It was also launched during the beginning of the year in Basel. At that time, it was a steel shell style. The blue-faced platinum version was just added in October. The seconds jump mechanism was not received under the movement like JD and JLC. Anuo put them directly on the faceplate. The eccentric jumping seconds is composed of two sets of gears. The anchor at the nine o’clock position is connected to a second wheel. There is a gusset on the same axis. The ruby ​​at the end is engaged with the real small seconds dial, but you can see it on closer inspection. A spring pulls the ruby ​​on the gusset, even if the two seconds wheels are linked, at the same time, due to the reaction force of the spring, the gear jumps and hops, making the jump seconds effect, without looking at the pointer, you can also see nine At that time, the anchor also moved every second, but it didn’t turn, so it bounced up and down like this, the design is ingenious and interesting, and it should be able to release the pressure after watching it.
