    HayThe CEO of Swatch Group, the world’s largest watch manufacturer and distributor, Nick Hayek, said recently that sales of the Group’s high-end watches in China slowed in 2012 and the focus will shift to the mid-market. For many watch owners, the word ‘slowdown’ seems reluctant to mention it, fearing that the action will be slightly slower, and they will be completely forgotten by the impatient Chinese customers. In fact, ‘slowing down’ does not mean ‘putting down’. Mo is nervous, but just breathes a little in his busy life. Text / Chu Jing
    Hamilton, the perfect combination of American style and Swiss craftsmanship
    Every year in Basel, watch editors and journalists flying around the world can quickly enter the working state. Naturally, the big Hamilton aircraft hanging at the station is the only one. Founded in the United States in 1892, the Hamilton Watch is the perfect combination of a free-spirited American spirit and a refined Swiss craftsmanship. In addition to its outstanding performance in the field of aviation watches, many cooperations with Hollywood have made Hamilton one of the most American-style brands.
    In recent years, with the pace of entering the Chinese market, the brand has also begun to enter the Chinese film industry. In ‘I Know Women’s Heart’ which was released last year, Andy Lau’s aviation helicopter series worn in the film has won the favor of many movie fans and ‘Han watch’ fans. ‘Married to a Hundred Percent Man’, which was released some time ago, Zheng Zhongji and the Jazz Master series explained to us what is called ‘One Hundred Percent’. As a family classic, the Jazz Master has a simple and low-key appearance, known for his tough atmosphere. It is equipped with the H21 movement independently developed by the brand, revealing the classic and stable temperament from the inside out.

Certina’s most dazzling ‘logo’ is the cool F1 car in the exhibition hall, which highlights the brand’s inherent sports genes.
    Certina started in 1888 and became a member of the Swiss Watch Group in 1983. It is a mid-range sports watch brand in the group. The biggest competitive advantage in the market lies in its high cost performance. The retail price is between 3000 and 15,000. This price is quite close to the people.
    Sporty style and dual insurance ‘DS’ system are the two most important labels of Certina, and it is the capital that can show its magic in the three major fields of water, land and air exploration. The brand’s sporting style is reflected in its cutting-edge sports: In 2005, Certina married the world Formula 1 car and became the global official partner of the Sauber Petronas team.
    全新 The new models of kinetic energy, masters, intelligence, champions and other series introduced this year also reflect the unique style of the brand’s classics and sports. Friends who like to travel and exercise will definitely be particularly interested in the new Smart Series DS MULTI-8 all-black watch launched by Certina.

It has many practical functions, such as ‘switchable’ time zone display, full calendar information, alarm, countdown and countdown timer .

    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.
    Omega Swimming Timing Equipment Debuts at Olympic Water Sports Center
    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.
