    New Patek Philippe Watch, The Only Way To Solve Qian Worry

    At the beginning of the year, there were rabbit fans to consult the popular models of Patek Philippe (hereinafter referred to as PP). Seeing that there were no exact numbers in the three or five years in line, I said that it would be better to wait for new Basel products and fancy the lines. Maybe the speed is fast, and it is not far away. I did not expect that the exhibition will be over half a month in the past. This year’s popular new models have been lined up. Now if we start, we must be prepared to not get the watch this year (or even the next year). Very sad? Actually not necessarily, the key is to find out why we are buying watches. Rabbit first shows you what the popular models of this year are. Men’s watch three King Kong, which one do you like first? The hottest three are 5212A-001 Calatrava weekly watch, 5726 / 1A-014 Nautilus annual calendar watch, and 5168G-010 Aquanaut green grenade. 5212 was born, steel watch, 40 mm diameter, plus a new feature, the heat rose instantly, it is said that just launched Basel, some people went to Yuandi want to book. Weekly calendar function, in addition to displaying the day and date, can also indicate the number of weeks (53 weeks a year). There are many calendar functions in PP history, such as simple window-type date display and hundreds of years perpetual calendar display. Introduced in 2013, the Ref. 5200 Gondolo eight-day power reserve week and date display watch, the more unique feature is that the week and the date synchronize and jump. This year’s 5212 is inspired by the historical work 2512 of 1955. At present, this watch is hidden in the Patek Philippe Museum. Just looking at the model number, it shows the relationship between the two. From the dial layout point of view, it uses five center hands, of which the hour and minute hands are black platinum sword-shaped hands, the second hand is relatively slim. There are also two needles. One is a hammer-shaped day hand, which indicates the day of the week by a ‘red hammer head’ and a circular scale ring in the middle of the dial, and the other hand is the same design to indicate the week number and month. This watch also has a special feature. The typeface on the dial is designed based on the handwriting of a designer of Patek Philippe (unlike the simple printed font), which is very recognizable. Speaking of the weekly calendar function, PP has developed a new semi-integrated device that displays the day of the week and the current week number. It has a thickness of 1.52 mm and consists of 92 additional components. In addition, a special motherboard is equipped to ensure the thinness of the movement (the center wheel of the movement has a 7-tooth star wheel to control the day of the week display, and the sun gear of the other 7-tooth star wheel has an extended tooth tip that can be passed through the fork The rod drives 53 periodontal wheels to rotate). In order to avoid peak energy consumption, this weekly calendar watch advances by discontinuous semi-instantaneous jump. The two push pins at 8 o’clock and 10 o’clock adjust the week and week respectively. The crown can be adjusted by half the date. The advantage is that this watch can be adjusted at any time without worrying about damage to the movement. In addition, according to international conventions, Monday is the first day of the week (non-Sunday), and the week in which January 4 is located is the first week, which is convenient for everyone to adjust and use. This watch has a public price of 244,900 yuan in China, and it is a new feature. Plus the steel model, whether you like it or not, it has the quality of a popular watch. The second one is the 5726 Nautilus, the blue-faced annual calendar, and the all-steel model, which is undoubtedly a popular model attribute. In fact, the rabbit knew the 5726 new information very early, and I personally always prefer the nautilus with a metal chain belt (after all, it was designed in one year). It has a more integrated feeling than the belt model, and the strap has excellent hand comfort. When I heard that it was blue-faced (the dial color of the original Nautilus watch in 1976), and it was processed in blue and black, the rabbit thought, ‘That’s it.’ This is the rhythm of queuing. Not to mention the discontinuation of two steel belt models (white and gray), which is equivalent to focusing the firepower on the new blue surface. As a complex function of Nautilus nautilus, the annual calendar model appeared in 2010. The earliest model was a belt model, which is still in production. So at present, 5726 has only two options-belt or steel belt. The new blue-faced public price is 336,200 yuan, with a diameter of 40.5 millimeters. At present, the lineup of the store has reached a certain scale. If you like it, you can decide early. Maybe it is your own surprise. You do n’t have to force it to be true, you ca n’t force it anyway (it’s not recommended to increase the price, rabbits always have this attitude). The third favorite of the men’s model is the Aquanaut series of green grenades. The khaki green embossed dial is matched with a three-dimensional platinum block with fluorescent coating. The size is 42.2 mm. Does it look familiar, because the existing blue grenade is also the same size. The Aquanaut series for men was born in 1997. It was originally made of stainless steel or rose gold. In 2017, in order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this series, PP pushed the first platinum “Jumbo” Aquanaut, which is a blue grenade, and its size is also the largest in this series. So Khaki Green is actually adding a new member. I believe everyone is also familiar with Thunder. The octagonal bezel is treated with vertical satin on the front and polished on the side. In addition, the new model comes with a patented Aquanaut folding clasp. This year’s green grenade is very popular, and it is also interesting to say that similar colors may not be sold well a few years ago, but the important point of consumption is precisely the timing. The same product is placed in different years, and its ending may be completely different. In short, the trend of high-end watches from practical to accessories is very obvious. Nautilus women’s watch will also be difficult to find? This year’s PP female models are completely taken up by Nautilus 7118, more importantly, the Nautilus with diamonds. In fact, when the rabbit officially started the 7018 blue-faced nautilus in August last year, it roughly guessed the new product. After I bought it, there were about 10 rabbit rabbits lining up in Beijing, Shanghai, and even overseas shops to find the goods, but the end result was being told that ‘discontinued’, and my 7018 was the last piece in China. Since then, rabbits have been attacked by rabbit powder every day, and Tucao finally managed to sink to the bottom of the valley. But I vaguely feel that there must be new actions behind the shutdown. Sure enough, 7118 diamonds appeared this year, filling the vacancy of the 7018 steel nautilus with diamonds after discontinuation, although there are still differences between the two. First of all, the sizes are different, 7018 is 33.6 mm, and 7118 is 35.2 mm. If you have to ask me which is better, of course I say that my 7018 is fine (also the blue face, 7118 is slightly deeper, and 7018 is fritillary). However, you have no choice but to accept (hehe). In addition, the new Nautilus series folding buckle has an adjustment device (the length can be increased by 2 to 4 mm), so you are no longer afraid of thermal expansion and contraction. From the current situation of rabbits, gray and white noodles are relatively easy to order, while blue noodles are more difficult. Several rabbit powders have wanted blue noodles. This is also very interesting. When I bought 7018 last year, there were only 2 pieces in China a year, but it is said that when the first watch arrived in March, it was still offered to recommend to customers. It can be said that even a year ago, few people asked about female nautilus with diamonds. In fact, the 7018 model was released in 2013, 2 years earlier than 7118, but the nautilus with diamond 5 years ago was obviously out of time. At present, my 7018 blue-face secondary market has exceeded 300,000 (China’s public price is more than 250,000). Of course, rabbits have to take the opportunity to seize their own carrying capacity, but carrying goods is also related to our consumption stage. In addition, for the blue surface, rabbits are advised to look at this year’s gold model 7118. The difference is that the old model is with a diamond and the new one has no drill ring. This year’s rose gold color is warm and not dazzling, and the real thing is particularly good-looking. Relatively speaking, the popularity of the gold model is currently no better than that of the steel model. It is difficult to shoot the effect. It is recommended that you go to the store to see the real thing. The only thing that is fun is that the price of 7118 gold with diamond is the same as the old model without diamond, which is 348600 yuan. How to choose depends on your preferences. However, the gold model with diamond 7118 has exceeded the public price (the second-hand market price in December last year was still about 300,000), so you know. Ca n’t afford and ca n’t afford the series. It’s 5520P-001, a platinum version of the travel time alarm (again, I ca n’t afford it, everyone is free). Feel strange looking? Look at 5524 are all over the public price, there is nothing incomprehensible, not to mention that people not only rely on face value. This is a super-complicated watch, with a Pilot-themed case. In addition to the second time zone, it has a 24-hour alarm function-the traditional single reed is hit by a small hammer to realize the alarm. The new movement has a total of 574 components. The entire alarm device took five years to develop and has four patents. It is not difficult to operate, for example, the dial has 2 center hours hands: the hollow indicates the home time, and the solid time is the local time. The two buttons on the left can adjust the time clockwise (8 o’clock position button) or counterclockwise (10 o’clock position) in units of one hour. The crown at 4 o’clock can adjust the alarm time in units of 15 minutes-the dual window will display the alarm time. The Chinese public price is 1.66 million, and the big Vs are also very happy. It can be seen that no matter what price, some people are jubilant. The last enamel world is 5231J-001, let’s take a look, because it is not open for ordinary guests to book. It is worth mentioning that this year is the first time that the East Eighth District has been changed from ‘Hongkong’ to ‘Beijing’, which is more collectible. Judging from this year, there is a trend that is particularly obvious. Everyone’s judgments on hot topics are concentrated and fast, and the chance of picking up leaks is ‘faint.’ Rabbit remembers that some explosive models could be bought at the public price two years ago, because no one expected the market trend later, and this year, some dealers have been reluctant to collect deposits in advance because they cannot predict the final price and are afraid of losing money. what. Second, the judgment of consumption upgrade has been verified to be correct (from steel models to steel diamonds). If you have the strength, you may continue to upgrade and rush ahead (such as gold or gold diamonds). The simplest and rude way is to honestly buy a non-hot dress watch you like and line up with peace of mind. For example, the rabbit couldn’t help but bask in a new 5235 with a low degree of attention, an annual calendar plus standard hands, a graphite and black dual-color dial (the 5235G-001 silver-gray dual-color dial model launched in 2011 was discontinued this year), and the public price was 379,400 yuan. This watch is very elegant, and it is currently the only standard pointer model in PP production models. You may wish to look at it and accept more possibilities. Stimulated by the explosive effect, the trend of consumption returning to China will only become more and more obvious. The possibility of buying explosives at public prices is close to zero. This may be realistic, but understanding the status quo may be better for us. After all, there aren’t so many benefits in the world-taking overseas duty-free goods and enjoying popular domestic models does not exist. In fact, we might as well ask what we love first. Only if we really like it, we do n’t care too much about the gains and losses, and it may have the longest value (many times, time will surprise people). This is also a tiny experience for rabbits. For your reference, you are crazy about your phone. The gossip rabbit is only original, welcome to repost!

    Sparkling ‘surface’ Kung Fu Audemars Piguet Audemars Piguet Ro Frost Gold Watch

    Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Frost Gold is a very interesting female watch on SIHH in 2017. This is the brand’s 40th anniversary of the first introduction of female models by Royal Oak in 1977 The commemorative model launched, and as a female watch, it has neither diamonds nor any so-called ‘feminine’ color scheme, but it has introduced a unique exterior surface treatment, and the entire watch relies on this trick. To create its particularity and feminine elements, it is indeed a very clever way to watch design.

    The model is still equipped with the AP’s 3120, which functions as a junior and date; in fact, it is not necessary to omit the second hand as a female watch, but it may be retained here to distinguish it from the quartz model

    Feature 1: Cooperate with famous jewellery designers. Here the ‘unique exterior surface treatment’ refers to the Frosted Gold effect which is refined by hammering. This set of processing skills is AP and Italian jewelry designers through Introduced by the collaboration of Carolina Bucci, Bucci is good at applying this traditional metalwork to her jewelry, using a diamond-tipped hammer to strike the metal surface densely to form a dusty texture. Looking at Bucci’s works, the frosted gold effect can be said to be a major expression of her, but most of the sights are small accessories. This time AP’s Royal Oak may be the largest plane she has ever used.

    The frosted gold treatment extends from the case all the way to the chain belt. It is also because of such a large area of ​​presentation that it can create its unique texture. Only the chain links can be processed one by one and the workload can be imagined Know

    Feature two: The surface made by the three-dimensional frost gold technique of cleverly maintaining the case is like the extinction and camouflage, with a visual effect that reduces the three-dimensional effect. However, the sharp cut surface and the three-dimensional shape with a sense of presence are exactly the royal oak Gerald Genta designed important features that made him famous, so the key to introducing this processing method is how to present the texture of frost gold while still maintaining the complex lines of the Royal Oak. The specific method is basically to follow the frost gold surface. Adjacent planes adopt other surface treatment methods, and the ridges are brought out by the junction of different surface textures, thereby maintaining the three-dimensional feeling.

    You can see three different surface treatments at a glance from the position of the bezel and lugs. Due to the special application method of frosted gold treatment, it should be done first and then chamfered to form such a sharp junction.

    Comment 3: The test under the gorgeous effect is similar to the surface treatment of frosted gold. We seem to have seen it in other brands in the past, but most of them are used in the movement plywood or face plate, and the examples seen in the past have a softer surface texture. In contrast, this should be sharper with hammer chisel marks, so the whole film will have a flash of visual effects in the past, the decoration means more intense, and it is more suitable for female watches. However, it is a little bit interesting whether a surface like this will damage the fabric when rubbed against a more delicate fabric. After all, as a female watch, this is also a point that cannot be ignored.

    Royal Oak Frosted Gold 18K rose gold material / 3120 self-winding movement / hours, minutes, seconds, date display / sapphire crystal, transparent bottom cover / waterproof 50 meters / 37mm diameter / reference price: 358000 RMB

The sapphire crystal and case back allow for unobstructed perspective of the breathtaking mechanical layout. TEC1 is the brand’s first high-frequency tourbillon with a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides 55 hours of kinetic energy reserve. At the bottom of the dial is the chronograph function. A 60-minute counter is strategically located at six o’clock to create a harmonious balance. The second chronograph passes through the central second hand. In order to make the watch more technically innovative, the integrated column wheel chronograph & mdash; its large column wheel can be seen through the case back of the transparent sapphire crystal. Coupled with the automatic winding system with two-way winding, the superb skills of the brand’s high-end watches are highlighted.

    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
    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.

    Jacques Launched The New Double-sided Flip Tourbillon Limited Edition Watch

    To celebrate the 185th anniversary of the brand’s birth, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched a new Reverso TributeTourbillonDuoface limited edition double-sided flip tourbillon watch (model: Q3926480).

Equipped with Caliber847 movement, this movement is equipped with a 60-second flying tourbillon, which can be used as a second hand display.
