Introduction Of Iwc Flight Watch Series

Born more than 140 years ago, IWC watches enjoyed the title of ‘Watch Industry Engineers’ in the watch industry. Their flight models have been well received by the Air Forces of various countries since the 1930s because of their excellent and accurate characteristics Favored, it has always been a collector’s high-profile watch.
Continuing the brand’s long history of flying watches, today IWC has the most complete and excellent flying watch series in the Swiss watch industry, including Big Pilot pilot watches, Mark XXVI pilot watches, Spitfire Universal Time watches , Spitfire Chrono Spitfire Chrono Chasing Chronograph Watches and so on, all watch enthusiasts who love flying can find a flight watch that suits their style at IWC.

Big Pilot: the world’s largest automatic movement designed for pilots
的 The large pilot watches created by IWC can go on for decades without losing their popularity, because watchmakers are careful about the internal structure design of pilot watches. The Pilot Big Pilot, which was re-introduced in 2002, is the masterpiece of IWC’s many high-altitude flying watches. It is equipped with the 51110 exclusive production movement. This movement embodies the proven and proven mechanical watch history of IWC. The exquisite craftsmanship is currently the largest automatic movement in the world. The 51110 caliber equipped with the Pellaton automatic winding system, its ratcheting mechanism uses the pawl to interact with the gear technology, allowing the watch to achieve the best performance of two-way winding through a slight reciprocating action. 8 days and a half of power reserve accumulated in the shortest time; the delicate mechanism can stop the movement before the power reserve device is suspended after 168 hours of precise operation (7 days), so that the mainspring can be prevented from being inappropriate The possibility that the ground torque affects the amplitude of the oscillating weight will have a negative effect on the accuracy of the escapement system. In 2006, IWC introduced a variety of new versions of this exquisite watch with minor changes. The design of the hour and minute hands and dial has also been changed accordingly with the new pilot watch series in 2006, which is more elegant and harmonious.

Mark 16 Pilot’s Watch: A fusion of tradition and modernity
It has been more than 70 years since IWC launched the first pilot watch in 1936. Its performance was designed for the special environment in the cockpit at that time, so that the watch was not disturbed by the instruments in the cockpit and remained accurate. The dial design makes it easy for the driver to read the time at any time. The classic Mark XVI watch design has more flight watch features. The dial is enlarged in diameter and mimics the design of the cockpit instruments to make it more concise and legible. At the same time, SuperLumiNova patented fluorescent coating is applied to the dial and hands. Make the time display clear. The style of the watch is elegant and retro, and its superior antimagnetic protection performance makes the watch excellent and precise.
The diameter of the Mark XVI watch is 39 mm, which is 1 mm larger than the diameter of the Mark XV watch, making its proportions more harmonious. The Mark XVI watch is equipped with a 30110 self-winding movement, which operates convincingly and has a 42-hour power reserve that accurately displays the date and time.

Spifire UTC Spitfire Universal Time Watch: Powerful Pilot
Aviator watch represents the traditional essence of Schaffhausen IWC. In 1936, the IWC watch factory introduced the ‘watch dedicated to pilots’ for the first time. Spitfire, as a well-known fighter in the history of aviation, attracts attention for its elegant appearance and superb technical characteristics.
Universal Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is very important for pilots. It is based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), which makes the time difference around the world consistent. To this end, IWC launched the 24-hour Universal Time Pilot’s Watch since 1998. This is important not only for pilots, but also for travelers who frequently travel to and from continents, as well as business people who need to communicate with the world. The local time and date displayed on the Spitfire Global Time dial can be adjusted up or down in one-hour increments by adjusting the crown. The wearer’s time is displayed in a window on the dial in 24-hour mode. The curved window of the new Spitfire Global Time watch has moved from the upper half to the lower half of the dial. The overall visual appearance of the dial is more coordinated, like a blooming innocent smile.

Spitfire Chrono Spitfire Chrono Watch: Designed for people who do not need a co-pilot
In a deafening roar, two fighter formations passed. They flickered left and right, climbing at a nearly vertical angle, and drawing an arc in the air that made people take sharp turns. When the performance reached its climax, the fighter aircraft made an action called semi-external somersault, and the audience responded with warm applause. There are no other models that are as beautiful and flexible as Spitfires, which make aircraft enthusiasts obsessed with. A total of 20,351 aircraft left the production line, the largest number of aircraft manufactured in the UK. In 1936, chief designer Reginal Mitchell created a masterpiece combining technology and aerodynamics. The wide wing area allows this single-seat aircraft to fly with sharp arcs, giving it excellent flexibility. . A Rolls-Royce engine with 1030 horsepower is used. From the first generation to the second generation with more than 2,000 horsepower. Spitfires continued to serve until the 1950s, and a small number of them still exist today. This excellent aircraft is enviable as a living legend, and has become an expensive collectible item: a fully restored aircraft in its original state is worth about 3 million US dollars Yuan, if you can find it.
Schaffhausen IWC watch designer, transplanted the elegant lines of this streamlined interceptor fighter to the Spitfire chronograph watch. In almost the same way that the metal skin is fixed to the bracket with rivets, the numbers and hands of this watch are ‘riveted’ on the dial. Makes the watch look distinctly three-dimensional. In addition to the red double chronograph seconds hand used to calculate the intermediate time, the mechanical chronograph movement drives the other five hands to make its shape reminiscent of the propeller blades of legendary fighters and reconnaissance aircraft.

TOP GUN Navy Air Combat Watch: Designed for people who do n’t believe in gravity
Allow to take off! The jet engine made a deafening roar. The auxiliary ejection device was activated, pulling the jet to a speed of 300 kilometers per hour in two seconds: an amazing pulling force for both humans and fighters. In the cockpit are graduates of the legendary U.S. Navy Fighter Defense School with Top Gun to defend the warrior class. This title is given only to the most responsive and heroic fighter pilots. Flying in the most extreme narrow arcs, they must withstand a centrifugal force that is 10 times the gravity, pushing them to the limit of their physical fitness.
The pilot watch chronograph series TOP GUN navy air combat watch is designed for such extreme conditions. It brings together all the know-how accumulated by Schaffhausen IWC to design watches for professional pilots. The case is made of high-tech black ceramic, and the buttons, crown and case back are machine-made dull gray titanium. The inner case uses soft iron to resist the magnetic field, and the time measurement measures the time in the middle. Watches from IWC are the model of the most exquisite haute horology and the foundation of the company’s reputation in the international haute horlogerie market as an important brand. Long before IWC Schaffhausen officially announced the release of the pilot’s watch, the prototype watch was subjected to 30 relentless tests, just like the Nevada-trained Top Gun defenders. Climate tests simulate a variety of climates from the Arctic, Shahara, and rainforest. The watch was immersed in sea water for two weeks to test the resistance of the watch to harsh salt water. The impact test exposed the watch to a very small number of timers that can maintain a non-destructive acceleration rate: vibrations and percussions in millisecond intervals for several hours, accelerating 5000 times the gravity. Only watches that can continue to operate accurately can win the Top Gun defender logo. This respect for top drivers is no coincidence. For IWC watch designers, the two have one thing in common: only the best is good enough.

Thinking About Warmth, Melting Ice And Snow Glashütte’s Original Reveals The Magic Of Winter With Extraordinary Timepieces

It’s snowy and lonely-winter is here. In this season of thoughtfulness, those beautiful dreams deeply imprinted inside are once again moving: Where is the beauty? Who warms his heart? What’s a good time? In the cold, lonely and magical winter, there are original Glashütte ideas for you-two new works, extraordinary and pleasing to the eye.

The shiny stainless steel parliamentary world time watch and the dazzling eccentric moon phase women’s watch are admired by its refreshing and elegant temperament and traditional German watchmaking art heritage.

Multi-faceted and exquisite, the walker knows no boundaries: the watch in the world of MPs
The ice-cream-like, multifaceted MP World Time Watch is an ideal companion for traveling around the world. Regardless of the flames or the sun like a waterfall-it is a reliable timepiece in difficult times and dangerous conditions, it is a trusted partner who will never give up. Complex and sophisticated machinery that can display two time zones at the same time-both standard time and daylight saving time are taken into account-as long as it is any time zone in the world currently in use. Its core is equipped with the 89-02 automatic winding movement created by the brand watch factory. More than 400 components are assembled by hand, 4 Hz frequency, eccentric automatic rotor, 72-hour power reserve-a truly original work.

新 This new stainless steel model launched this year uses a dark blue Louisiana alligator leather strap, which is the latest model of the MP Timepiece series; this series was first launched in 2015. Its personality is in the same vein as Glashütte’s original brand style, and the refreshing design is streamlined to the basic elements. The overall design of the dial and the layout of the various displays make reading time a treat-even if it is snowy outside.

Dark blue and white, embellished with black details-colors that belong to winter, set the overall visual tone of the watch. The silver frame dial at 12 o’clock indicates the home time, and it also integrates the power reserve display. Glashütte’s original and representative large calendar is set at 4 o’clock; at 8 o’clock, two arrow-shaped windows are designed to blend in harmony with the overall contours of the dial. They use the International Airport Code developed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which indicates traveler destinations in three different colors. Each of the 24 time zones (one hour difference between adjacent time zones) divided according to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) is represented by a black IATA code; another eight are half-time zones, represented by blue codes; There are also three time zones that differ by three quarters of an hour from GMT time, indicated by a red IATA code. The 9 o’clock position is a newly designed day / night display, which represents day and night with a small sun and starry night sky, respectively.

Frozen Jade Lake in the warm winter sun: dazzling light, dazzling-a vivid portrait of the eccentric moon phase ladies watch
的 The fascinating magic of the eccentric moon phase ladies’ watch also comes from the fresh and pure details. The delicate mother-of-pearl dial is like a frozen lake in the winter landscape-it reflects the clear and clear sky. Such glamorous beauty is the crystallization of the superb craftsmanship of Glashütte’s original dial factory in Pforzheim, Germany. In addition, the large calendar at 4 o’clock and the moon phase display at 2 o’clock are also masterpieces of watchmakers’ craftsmanship-the diamond-cut silver moon, the beautiful starry night sky, and the lifelike portrayal fascinating. . Although the large calendar display is the representative feature of Glashütte’s original furnace fire, it is rarely used in ladies’ mechanical watches, which shows its rarity.

8383 diamonds with a total weight of 1.09 carats give the eccentric moon phase ladies watch a bright ice crystal-like glow in the warm winter sun. 64 brilliant-cut diamonds decorate the finely polished 39.4 mm stainless steel case. In addition, the 18 brilliant-cut diamonds inlaid with bar-shaped hour markers on the dial will continue the light and exude elegance. Finally, a bright cut diamond with a size of 3 mm was wound on the winding crown to command the stars in the style of a ‘crown’, reaching the peak of light. The watch is equipped with a self-winding movement 90-12 built by the brand watchmaker. The light blue Louisiana crocodile leather strap with pin buckle and the holy blue tone on the dial complement each other perfectly, making the watch complement each other. The whole is done in one go-elegant and natural.

Breitling: The Most Practical And Reliable Aviation Watch In The World

Although the Breitling watch brand is not the ‘only’ in the aviation watch manufacturing industry, it is obviously different. It was born in 1884 in a family factory specializing in making timepieces and other science-related equipment in the Swiss Jura Mountains. The owner of this factory is called Breitling (full name ST · IMIER BREITLING). Like all the people who live here and devote themselves to making sophisticated playthings, the founder of Breitling has always been fascinated by unwilling research and pioneering innovation.

Gaston, the second generation of Breitling watches, has produced the first aerospace watch at that time.
初 At the beginning of the last century, it was precisely when humans just put their wings into the sky that the man who dared to be a pilot became the hero most sought after by fashionable women at that time. In 1915, Gaston, the second generation of Breitling watches, produced the first aviation-specific watch at that time. If ordinary people get such a watch, it will take a long time to master all its functions.
Because the design positioning of Breitling aviation watches is ‘make the most practical and reliable aviation watch in the world’, it is not necessary to consider that the average person is ‘tired with numbers’ in the design of the dial, and deal with the dashboard and numbers all day For pilots, Breitling’s appearance design is in line with aesthetic principles; functions are perfect; practicality is impeccable. In short, it is the favorite of contemporary naval aviation pilots. This Breitling, which was introduced in 1952, has been “good trend” so far, and it has become a rare commodity that can be obtained with a little money.

At a time when many international famous watch brands regard China as another luxury consumer market, they have grabbed the beach, but the ‘Seagull Watch’, the masterpiece of China’s original mechanical watch, has set its sights abroad, and independently designed a ‘Tourbillon Watch’. , ‘Tour Tourbillon Watch’, ‘Perpetual Calendar’, ‘Question Table’ and other ‘three complex institutions of the world’s high-end mechanical watches’ at the Baselworld in Switzerland (Baselworld) has won universal praise and envy from the global watch industry. However, behind the scenery is an unusual growth process similar to ‘natural selection’.

问 Three Questions, Perpetual Calendar, Tourbillon Rose Gold Watch

The third of the protagonist Seagull ‘Three Questions, Perpetual Calendar, Tourbillon Rose Gold Watch’ (three-in-one), a protagonist of the ‘domestic luxury’ hot issue issued by Weibo and media news resonance at the end of the year and the beginning of the year, was on January 28, 2013 Has been delivered to Hong Kong customers, and the fourth ‘three-in-one’ watch has entered the precision assembly adjustment process and is expected to be delivered within the year.

It is reported that after mastering the technology of tourbillon, perpetual calendar, and three-question function, ‘Seagull Watch’ combined these three ‘three classic and complex technologies’ into one for the first time in 2010 and launched the ‘three-question, perpetual calendar, tourbillon watch’ ‘, To the peak of high-end complex watches, a major step forward, the beginning of the launch, that is, a buyer to pay a deposit to customize, began to deliver in 2011.

The data shows that in the design of the ‘three questions, perpetual calendar, tourbillon watch’ commonly known as ‘three-in-one’, the functional components of 435 parts in a limited space need to be redesigned and placed. The difficulty of research and development is like a new complex Movements, even in the ‘Kingdom of Watches and Clocks’, there are very few brands with such capabilities. At that time, the advent of the Seagull ‘Three Questions, Perpetual Calendar, Tourbillon Watch’, affected the nerves of everyone who watched watch manufacturing, rejoicing and cheering.

一 、 Because of Newton, “Tourbillon” appears

Why do apples on the lime tree fall to the ground? Doubts about this phenomenon, which is nothing more than ordinary, led a generation of scientific giant Newton to discover the ‘law of universal gravitation’, which directly contributed to the appearance of the ‘tourbillon’.

In the 18th century, ABRAHAM-LOUIS BREGUET (Abraham-Louis Breguet) found that because the bag table was in a vertical state for a long time, the balance wheel would have uneven force due to gravity, which caused time. Deviation.

Therefore, in 1795, Breguet designed a CARRIAGE, which placed the balance wheel and escapement in CARRIAGE, and then fixed the CARRIAGE on the base plate with a bridge. When CARRIAGE rotates along the axis, the balance wheel can travel through 360 different positions along with the balance, balancing the effect of gravity on the balance wheel, making the movement more stable and smooth. In 1801, he officially registered a patent for this rotating escapement and named it TOURBILLON (Chinese translation for ‘Tourbillon’, French means whirlpool or whirlwind).

However, the ‘Tourbillon’ mechanism can be well known. It is still more than a hundred years ago that it turned from the bottom of the watch surface to the surface and became a work of art. At this time, the ‘Tourbillon’ can be seen at any time and viewed by others. No need to open the movement!

Twenty-two, the accuracy of the ‘Tourbillon’ directly increases its processing difficulty

High accuracy has been one of the goals pursued by watchmakers since the development of horology for hundreds of years. This is enough to explain why the ‘Tourbillon’ device has long been famous and has an irresistible appeal to watch fans.

陀 The ‘Tourbillon’ has been invented since 1795, and even has a trend of rising status year after year. The reason is no less than the background of the inventor Breguet and the difficulty of making it by hand. After successfully obtaining a patent registration in 1801, Breguet sold the first pocket watch with a ‘Tourbillon’ four years later. Later, other watchmakers participated in the manufacture of the ‘Tourbillon’ watch. It is time consuming, so it is conservatively estimated that there were only hundreds of ‘tourbillons’ that were successfully manufactured in the more than 100 years from the 1800s to the 1980s. In this sense, the ‘Tourbillon’ has begun to transform from a practical mechanical component into a luxurious decoration.

Thirty-three, ‘Rare is expensive’? ‘Fine is expensive’!

陀 ‘Tourbillon’, a scepter that symbolizes the highest level of watchmaking mechanical art, charms watchmakers and brands.

But the fact is that by the time Bao Bao died in 1823, he had sold no more than 35 tourbillons. Because, at the time, this function was too avant-garde, too complicated, and too difficult to make at the time, and it was too expensive because many parts were very fine. Modern ‘tourbillon’ systems generally consist of forty to ninety parts and weigh less than one gram. Although its structure and design are not too complicated, it is still a difficult device to test the watchmaker’s technology and strength under the current state of highly developed technology; manufacturing the ‘tourbillon’ is still an extremely complicated system Watch crafts, watch factories with the ability to make them themselves are still few and far between … This has also established their position in the ‘three complex devices’, and has become a symbol of whether any watch factory brand can be listed in the hall of watchmaking.

24. Dazzling artwork on the wrist

With the crown of top craftsmanship, the ‘Tourbillon’ has become a rotating artwork, a perceptual interpretation, and an obsession. At the moment, an international brand is participating in the ‘popular’ work of the ‘Tourbillon’, but even so, it is still the most complicated, expensive and mechanically changing horological function, still exuding the charm of the emperor .

At that time, the Chinese land also blew a ‘Tourbillon’ whirlwind. From the north to the south, Chinese watch factory brands have been involved in the trial production of the ‘Tourbillon’. Among them, Tianjin Haigu Watch Group Co., Ltd. is the leader. It is understood that since the successful introduction of the ‘Tourbillon’ seagull watch at the end of 2004, it has developed to today. The ‘Tourbillon’ seagull watch has evolved from one movement and one watch to more than 18 movements and 40 watches today. Category.

As one of the ‘three major pieces’ necessary for marriage at the end of the twentieth century, the watch, an iconic light industrial product, is now given a new meaning by Tianjin Seagull Watch Group Co., Ltd., and its ‘Tourbillon’ watch is produced. It is becoming a gift and collectible for high-end consumer groups and watch lovers in the new era. Under the influence of ‘Seagull Watches’, a wave of ‘Tourbillon’ watches is rolling in.

Five, because it is extraordinary, so value

In 2001, the desire to ‘exhibit the tourbillon produced by oneself’ inspired the technical staff of the Seagull Group to figure out a prototype of the ‘Tourbillon’ in less than one year and wear it to participate in another session of Basel in Switzerland. The “Seagull Man” wrist of Seoul International Watch & Clock Fair; in 2005, he presented a limited edition tourbillon rose gold watch to Olympic champion Liu Xiang during his participation in Tianjin and the same time as the “Tianjin Museum” with “China’s No. 1 watch” After the payment, the transaction price of Beijing Guardian’s ‘Seagull Tourbillon Rose Gold Watch’ must be more than 20% higher than the market reference price. In 2008, it was easy to respond to the infringement complaint of ‘double tourbillon’ by international brands at the Basel International Watch Fair in Switzerland. , Which made the Chinese brand win the first response …

In 2012, at the Basel International Watch Fair in Switzerland, another internationally renowned watchmaking company complained that the product description of the Seagull ‘Coaxial Tourbillon’ constituted an infringement on its trademark. After the organizing committee’s intellectual property committee ruled that the seagull had not registered it Trademarks constitute any infringement. This is the third time that Seagull has succeeded in defending its rights at the exhibition following the first rights defense in 2008, and the patented product ‘Tourbillon’ cufflinks counterclaim in 2011.

26. Inheriting the classic innovation and development

The use of a balance without balance spring can improve the flaws of the structure with a balance that affect the timing accuracy of mechanical watches, and can better improve the performance of mechanical watches. Its high technical content in design, processing, assembly and adjustment, Make the equipment without card spring balance in the current ‘Clock Kingdom’ Switzerland is also a hallmark of high-end mechanical watches.

The implementation of the ‘Postdoctoral Workstation’ project provided theoretical and material support for the promotion of various high-end projects of the National Technology Center of the Seagull Group. Through its own efforts, it is accelerating the pace of catching up and continuously shortening the distance from the cutting-edge level. Later, the silicon material hairspring, which will be equipped with a ‘post-doctoral workstation’ to participate in the research and development, will sooner reach the Swiss Observatory standard.

7. Do n’t choose expensive, just choose the right one

Experts have calculated this carefully. If only one is made, the cost of making a chronograph is more expensive than the ‘tourbillon’, but because it can be mass-produced, the cost will be spread out, so it is not so expensive. Assuming that the ‘Tourbillon’ is also produced in large quantities, I believe it will not be too expensive, but it is expensive because of the small number and secondly because it is entirely handmade.

So expensive is labor! The ‘Tourbillon’ is about fine hand-assembling, full-hand polishing and decoration, and manual adjustment. The reason why China’s ‘Seagull Watch’ can produce affordable ‘Tourbillon’ watch is that the labor is relatively low.

With the improvement of people’s living standards, many world-famous watches have entered the country. This is the side that ordinary people see, but the industry and watch lovers have also seen the fact that the ‘Seagull Watch’ is the pioneer. Chinese mechanical watch manufacturers have stepped out of the country and into the world, achieving the goal of occupying a place in the international market, and are becoming international brands.

The ‘Tourbillon’ movement recently demonstrated by ‘Seagull Watch’ has made international big names unwilling, but it is another pioneering initiative that has raised the hearts of Chinese people. After more than 200 years, the ‘Tourbillon’ has been in a foreign state like ‘Yangchun Baixue’ has few responders; but as a work of art, it has to be implemented in the end and needs to be recognized by the public. From this point, the ‘Seagull Watch’ is undoubtedly at the forefront .

Omega Swimming Timing Equipment Debuted At Olympic Water Sports Center

On the occasion of the opening of the 2012 London Olympics, Peter Schurzeler, a member of the Omega Timing Management Committee, introduced the Omega timing equipment to be used in the Olympic swimming event at the Olympic Park Aquatic Centre. Omega Swimming Timing Equipment Debuts at Olympic Water Sports Center
Swimming pool
游泳 At the 2012 London Olympics, swimmers will use the newly upgraded pool take-off platform. With this new device, Omega has provided athletes with more favorable take-off conditions: the patented adjustable bevel pedals allow players to bend their hind legs to a 90-degree angle when squatting, which is considered the best Take-off posture-The take-off power generated by the player from the moment the starting signal sounds to the moment he leaves the take-off platform can be maximized.
The newly upgraded swimming pool launching platform is also equipped with an innovative signal light system called ‘swim ranking indicator light’, which will debut at the 2012 London Olympics. The take-off platform with the new signal light system is located next to the touch pad at the end of the swimming pool track. At the end of the race, a large light spot displays the first place, two medium light spots represent the second place, and three small light spots Dots represent third place.
Quantum water sports timer
The resolution of the quantum water sports timer has been increased to 1 microsecond (millionth of a second), marking the advent of a new generation of Omega timing devices. Compared to previous devices, the resolution of the new timer is 100 times higher. In addition, its accuracy has reached one ten-millionth. This means that the maximum error of this timer is only one ten-millionth of a second, in other words, only one-thousandth of a second will be generated every one thousand seconds. The accuracy of the previous generation device is one-two million, so the precision of the quantum timer is 5 times that of the previous device. Such extraordinary precision is achieved by a component made by Micro Crystal company incorporated in a timer.
The innovations of the quantum water sports timer include a complete system installed inside the timer body and supporting its precise operation, as well as 16 independent timers, 128 inputs and 32 outputs. The main system and the auxiliary system each have independent power supply devices, so when there is a problem with the power supply of one system, the other system can be completely unaffected by normal operation.
16 independent timers mean that this device can perform 16 independent timing tasks at the same time, and the timing information of each item can be simultaneously transmitted to the scoreboard or displayed on live TV.

Touchpad
触摸 Since 1968, touchpads have become a regular device in Olympic swimming pools. The swimmers stopped their timers by applying 1.5-2.5 kg of pressure to the touchpad. The touchpad is specially designed so that the effect of pressure on any position is the same. The high sensitivity of the touchpad allows it to stop timing as soon as the athlete touches it, but it is not affected by the flow of water in the pool.
High-speed camera
The high-speed camera is placed above the end of the swimming pool track and can be used as a reliable auxiliary tool of the electronic master timing system. Images taken by high-speed cameras are rarely used when deciding results, but in some cases, it has played a decisive role in resolving disputes caused by similar results. The most impressive application of high-speed cameras in the Olympic Games was at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In the men’s 100m butterfly final at the time, according to the display of the electronic timing system, Michael Phelps defeated Milorad Cavic with a slight advantage of 0.01 seconds, which was also swimming The smallest time gap that can be distinguished in the history of the game. Chavez’s coach questioned the result, but immediately dropped the appeal when he saw the image taken by the Omega high-speed camera at 100 frames per second-the high-speed camera finally proved that the Omega electronic timing system worked perfectly Without error. Phelps won his seventh gold medal at the Beijing Olympics, and since then he has won an eighth gold medal, setting a new Olympic record.
