Retro Racing Chronograph Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 16

In recent years, TAG HEUER, or simply Carrera’s marketing focus has almost been focused on the Heuer 01 series. Relatively, Carrera’s opportunities for exposure seem to be much less. Heuer 01 symbolizes TAG Heuer’s new style and new direction, and is one of the most important strategic products of the brand in the near future. However, this does not mean that TAG Heuer will at least be completely younger in terms of design. You can also see the clue from their re-enactment of Autavia; and although Heuer 01 sells well, its new-style style may also evoke old-school players’ feelings about their Carrera, so there is still a lot of room for the old version .

The inner ring of the bezel is made of ceramic material. The speed scale and numbers on the bezel are three-dimensional, and the texture is quite good. The pigment filled in the lettering is also beige, and the overall tone style is uniform.

Feature 1: 43mm micro-large case
This all-black Day-date itself is a small change to the 43mm date-week model, but the new color is selling pretty well, and the specifications and pricing part still maintains TAG Heuer’s excellent balance at this price point. Looking at the current Market is still extremely competitive. It’s a bit surprising, the Carrera 43mm Day-date combination didn’t come out until 2007, so it was launched in the name of the tenth anniversary model. The current Carrera date-week models are equipped with a 43mm case, and the 41mm only has the date display. In fact, the 43mm surface space to accommodate the horizontal date and week window is indeed more roomy, and the next one can be placed next. The complete time scale, plus 2007 was the time when big watches were the most popular, so now looking at the launch of this series of warp and weft can really make a lot of sense.

Carrera’s time scales are in sticks, numbers from 1 to 12, and 05/10/15, etc. Among them, the author’s personal preference is 05/10/15; this time the model is filled with vintage Beige luminous paint, improve the texture of the surface a lot

Feature 2: Luminous effect is improved
This change is basically a titanium case coated with black PVD, and the luminous paint is replaced with beige, with an old leather strap, to create a retro texture. Except for the use of color and materials, the new design is exactly the same as the existing style. It is worth mentioning that the original numbers such as 05, 10, and 15 were just pure metal parts. This time, they were dug out of the groove and filled with beige. Luminous, in this way, not only is more labor-intensive and costly. The point is that this small place really improves the texture of the watch, and the image of the overall appeal is also fuller.

Cal. 16 is basically ETA 7750. Before it was launched in 1887, it was TAG Heuer’s most important basic timing movement. Compared with 1887, the most obvious difference in specifications is the absence of column wheels.

Feature three: 16 movement with richer information
The model is equipped with Calibre 16. Since the launch of the self-made 1887, the number of Cal. 16 products has decreased a lot. However, 1887 only has the day of the week display, and the day of the week-date model must be Cal. 16. Most of the plating colors on the market are now transferred to DLC. Heuya should use PVD here to control costs, but the money should still be spent. For example, the bezel still uses ceramic materials, which is precisely managed like this. The specifications and budget allow TAG Heuer to come up with a highly competitive CP value in the 100,000-level range, which shows that it is a means for the middle-entry price strong.

Boll Watch Ball Watch And Then Made 904l Stainless Steel Engineer Iii Ohio

Engineer III Ohio is a continuation of Engineer II Ohio, but changed to 904L stainless steel

Engineer III Ohio watches are also made of 904L stainless steel, which has a bright luster and is durable. The inside of the case is made of nickel alloy, which is an alloy of nickel, iron, copper, and molybdenum. It has a very high magnetic permeability, so it can attract and shift static or low-frequency magnetic field lines. This alloy makes the watch equipped with anti-magnetic properties, which is better than the soft iron of the anti-magnetic protective cover described above. Nickel alloys can make magnetic watches with amazing strength of up to 80,000 A / m.

The 904L stainless steel used in the watch is different from ordinary stainless steel. Due to the addition of more precious metals in its composition, such as additional chromium and copper, the 904L stainless steel has excellent corrosion resistance, rust resistance and acid resistance.

Flying In The Sky And Flying With Breitling Aviation Fleet

Yves Jetman Rossy has been flying with Breitling for many years. During the Oshkosh Air Show in the United States, he once again flew into the sky to complete an outstanding jet-powered parachute show.

 Maybe you are already familiar with Breitling’s aerobatic team, but you may feel strange when you hear the jet-powered parachute show. According to the watch house, it is understood that the “jet-powered parachute” is a German company. A project being developed at the end of the month: if the development is successful, the ‘jet powered wing parachute’ will be complemented by very sophisticated instruments and computers, which can either fly at low altitude and high speed, or gently descend to the ground and stop at an accurate position to achieve Very secret airborne assault.

 According to the watch house, Yves Roche has crossed the English Channel in 2008 through an 8-foot jet power wing and successfully flew 22 miles, making it the headline of the world’s media. He planned to cross Africa and Europe in early December 2009, flying from Morocco to Spain, but was blocked by strong winds and eventually landed on the sea 3 miles off the coast. But the indomitable Roche was now planning to fly over the canyon. It is reported that Roche is a former Swiss pilot. He spent $ 190,000 to develop a jet power wing just to satisfy his personal aviation hobby.

 The development of the ‘jet powered wing parachute’ project is a modular upgrade of the parachute system. The ‘jet powered wing parachute’ will be designed as a 6-foot-long power wing that can achieve a glide ratio of 5 to 1, meaning that it can glide for 30 miles when descending at 30,000 feet. Developers estimate that the taxi time is about 15 minutes and the taxi speed is about 60 miles per hour. The ‘jet powered wing parachute’ will also design a navigation system and head-up display. Most importantly, it intends to increase the flight range to 60 miles in the future. At the same time, it may also achieve long-distance low-altitude flight, making the entire mission more secret.

2012 Rolex (Rolex) Sydney To Hobart Regatta New Year’s Sailing Championship Trophy Deserves Its Name

The Rolex Sydney to Hobart Regatta is the most classic offshore sailing race with global reputation and the national sporting event in Australia.

 The Rolex Sydney to Hobart Regatta is the most classic offshore sailing in the world, and it is also a national sporting event in Australia. This historic race has a schedule of approximately 628 nautical miles. The race follows the tradition of sailing from Sydney Harbour on December 26th at 13:00 Eastern Daylight Time, and heading along the Tasmanian coast of New South Wales, passing through Pakistan. Strait, arrived in Hobart, the capital of the island country Tasmania. Rolex has been sponsoring this difficult and exciting yet exciting race since 2002.

 This year’s Rolex Sydney to Hobart Regatta is a great event. On December 28, 2012, Wild Oats XI once again made a name for himself. From the moment the gun was fired, the silver ghost seemed determined to exclude its opponents from the line-up championship. Wild Oats XI won the qualifying championship with a finish time of 1 day, 18 hours, 23 minutes and 12 seconds, and advanced its own record set in 2005 by 16 minutes and 58 seconds. Subsequently, the 30.48-meter (100-foot) sailing boat once again won the 68th Rolex Sydney to Hobart Championship with the shortest correction time. Wild Oats XI reproduces the glory of 7 years ago, winning both the championship and the championship, and breaking the record at the same time, it can be described as a triple crown.
Although one of the ships in this game, Wild Oats XI, won all the important trophies, it’s a bit unfair to see this only for the other 75 ships in the competition. The memorable part of the race is the unforgettable race conditions and the perseverance of smaller sailing boats in the sea breeze that is conducive to large ships.
 Two key points in the pre-match weather forecast set the style of the game: the northeast wind that passed through the entire area on the first night, and the surrounding winds that gradually formed around Tasmania the next day. Westerly winds and strong winds blew to the north and south of Tasmania, creating troublesome leeward zones on the sea off the island. The timing of these shifts in the forecast has benefited the Clippers, especially the 60-foot Black Jack and last year’s champion Loki. Finally, the time of the wind change made Wild Oats XI proud.

He is synonymous with freedom, hope, and dignity. He is also the unquestionably most influential spokesman on global human rights issues and is respected by the world.

Hublot, the top Swiss watch brand, and the House of Mandela Foundation, founded by the descendants of the Mandela family, launched the Classic Fusion House of Mandela watch, to his great sentiment, and to the family, so Pay the highest respect to the precious heritage of the world.

The Mandela Foundation aims to commemorate Mandela’s life and philosophical ideas, and to launch a number of charitable projects including improving children’s education in South Africa. Therefore, the brand will donate part of the sales revenue of watches to the foundation to achieve charity goals.
Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe said, ‘Nelson Mandela has contributed his life to the human rights movement and has left indelible historical achievements. For us, the launch of the Classic Fusion House of Mandela watch is The great man’s philosophy continues forever. ”
The Classic Fusion House of Mandela 18K King Gold is available in two versions: a 45mm men’s watch and a 42mm women’s watch (set with 35 diamonds on the bezel and a total weight of 1.15 carats). In commemoration of the age of Mandela’s death, the two versions are limited to 95 each.

Jacques: I Made A ‘quartz’ Watch That Everyone Can’t Understand

The second hand of the quartz watch jumps away, and the second hand of the mechanical watch sweeps away. This has become the norm for many watch friends to identify quartz watches and mechanical watches. But in fact, jumping seconds is not the patent of quartz watch, the second hand of mechanical watch can still jump away. It’s just that such mechanical skip seconds watches are relatively rare, and watch friends rarely hear of them. Why are quartz watches generally ‘jump seconds’? The reason for the second hand to jump and move is simple, just to save power. There is an electric motor in the quartz movement. When the motor receives a signal from the quartz crystal, it starts to operate and drives the hands to rotate. The more the motor turns, the more power it naturally consumes. The quartz watch itself is small, and the capacity of the coin cell battery it carries is not large. If you keep the motor working, the watch’s standby time will be much shorter. Sweep-second quartz movements reach 320 microamperes at 1.2 volts. If changed to jump seconds, then the current is only 100 microamps. In other words, under the same circumstances, the standby time of the skip-second quartz movement is 3 times that of the sweep-second movement! So why are mechanical watches generally ‘sweep seconds’? In fact, all current mechanical watches are “jumping seconds”, just because the second hand’s beating range per second is too small and the speed is too fast, it is difficult for us to detect with the naked eye. If you don’t believe it, watch friends can try to turn on the phone and use the ‘slow photography’ function to take pictures of their mechanical watches. Once the speed slows down, you will find that the second hand will jump 3-5 times per second. The root of the second hand jumping is the balance with hairspring, which has a fixed swing frequency. Jules Emmery “Quarterly Jumping Seconds” Jumping Seconds Pocket Watches On antique pocket watches, we can also encounter some models with jumping seconds function. They are equipped with separate jumping seconds small dials, where the hands will change every second Beat 4 times. We usually refer to it as a ‘quarter-jump second’. This pocket watch was produced in large quantities by British brands in the late 18th century. However, this ‘quarter-jumping second’ is not what we usually call ‘jumping the second’. In the narrow sense, jumping the second means ‘the second hand beats once every second.’ Jump stopwatches are almost always in professional fields, such as HNA and medical. One of the most important things about a ship drifting on the vast sea is the sailing clock, because the time on the sailing clock can be used to know the longitude of the place where the ship is located, which is related to the life of the whole ship. Precise observatory sea clocks can not fully meet the requirements of seafarers. Jumping seconds observatory sea clocks have emerged at the historic moment, helping them to proofread before going to sea and the mother clock, and to read the precise time at sea down to every second. And medicine can read the second hand time more accurately and conveniently by jumping the stopwatch, and then know the specific heart rate of the patient. There are two main solutions to change the original ‘one-fifth hop second’ into a narrow one-second hop. The first is the double wheel train, which is common in pocket watches and ship clocks. The movement has two sets of gears, one for the normal movement of the movement, the second is dedicated to jumping seconds, the stop of jumping seconds does not affect the normal movement of the first set. And if you want to achieve seconds jumping on a watch with a small movement size, it is usually the second solution, ‘single wheel train’. Omega Synchrobeat Jumping Second Watch @ 富 艺 斯 Omega Omega launched a 1 second watch named “Synchrobeat” in 1954, which adopted the “single wheel” design. About 1,000 pieces were produced and put on the American market. However, there are two shortcomings in the jumping seconds of a single wheel train. First, it is necessary to forcefully intercept the energy of the normal train, which affects the normal movement of the movement; Worn and shockproof. At the time, these two problems could not be solved, so Omega later had to recall the ‘Synchrobeat’ jumping seconds watch for the brand reputation. Only 17 were in the market, which is one of the rarest Omega antique watches. And the Rolex watch Tru-beat Ref.6556 has also disappeared into the long river of history for similar reasons. In the fall of 2015, Jaeger-LeCoultre released two watches from the Geophysic series. The basic version is a simple three-pin calendar model, and more complicated is the addition of World Time functions. Looking at the two forms from the front, there are actually no bright designs. The style of its appearance comes from the historical models of the world’s brands in the 1950s. Even the world time models, its color matching and layout have already been practiced on other watch brands. However, these two models are equipped with a rare mechanical skip-second movement, whose second hand will beat once every second, which the brand calls ‘True Sceond’. Both giants Omega and Rolex have encountered Waterloo on this type of watch. Will Jaeger-LeCoultre’s ‘True Sceond’ really make the same mistake again? But Jaeger-LeCoultre, known as a ‘technical madman’, was prepared this time. First of all, Jaeger-LeCoultre uses an additional hairspring (red part in the figure above) to accumulate energy near the barrel first. Although it still intercepts the energy of the normal gear train, it greatly reduces the interference with the movement of the movement. Second, the product Instead of using the traditional “escapement” as the “snap-in” device for jumping seconds, the home uses a simpler control lever (green part above) and five-star gear (orange part above), although it still exists Spontaneous wear but improved durability and shock resistance. In order to stabilize the seconds jump function, the second hand of Jaeger-LeCoultre watch is also specially treated. Our common analog watch, whether it is a mechanical movement or a quartz movement, their hands generally have a tail, especially the second hand, rarely see the second hand without a tail. In addition to being visually balanced, this tail also plays a balancing role in practice. Otherwise, the pointer is heavy on one side and light on the other, and it is easy to wear. When it is severely impacted, the gear will be damaged more. Therefore, most of the second hand that moves most often will have a small tail. In order for Jaeger-LeCoultre to balance the second hand, in addition to the second hand with a tail, the tail of the second hand is thickened (in the green part of the picture above) to increase weight, so that the entire second hand is balanced around the center of the axis. This aggravating process only appeared on high-end watches and was ignored by many brands. In addition to the ‘jump seconds’ fun, its balance wheel is also very distinctive. In 2007, Jaeger-LeCoultre released the Extreme Lab 1 concept watch, which is completely free of any lubricant. For this experimental product, the Gyrolab balance was also carefully designed for the experimental product, which was later used in the Jaeger-LeCoultre movement. Compared with the traditional circular balance wheel, this non-circular structure reduces air friction, and also incorporates the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand logo into the balance wheel shape design, which is different and quite interesting. Because of the small market, many watch brands, even if they introduced mechanical skip seconds watches, were generally based on conventional movements. Since it is a superimposed modification, naturally there will be compromises and concessions on some structures. In order to achieve reliable jumping seconds, Jaeger-LeCoultre specially developed a new self-produced Cal.770 series movement. Released in the fall of 2015, three years have passed. Jaeger-LeCoultre compared to the brand’s Master Series moon phase watches at the same price, and the market’s feedback is indeed quite flat. Many watch friends gave up this real second because the second hand moved too much like a quartz watch. Spending tens of thousands of dollars to buy a watch, but I was mistaken for an electronic watch, it was a little awkward indeed. But in my opinion, this is what it is worth. In the current watch market, there are too many homogenized products, and there are rare special styles. The rare jumping seconds watch fully meets the requirements of ‘there is nothing I have’. What’s more, the Jaeger-LeCoultre movement design is very clever, even when compared with other brands’ higher-priced same-function jump-second watches, it is also ‘people have me.’ People have me, people have me. Jaeger-LeCoultre is really a forgotten watch.
