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.

Hublot Pays Tribute To South African President Mandela

Nelson Mandela, nicknamed Madiba, was the first black president in the history of South Africa in 1994. 1993 Nobel Peace Prize. Mandela died in 2013 at the age of 95. 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. The face plate is engraved with bees spreading wings totems, and the wings symbolize the branches of the Mandela family. The selection of bees is inspired by Mandela’s Xhosa name ‘Rolihlahla’ (meaning ‘the one who dares to take honey from the hive’ or ‘the one who has the courage to challenge or change the situation’). The bee also represents family values-courage, sharing and compassion. In addition, the watch is paired with a black alligator leather strap, showing a low-key look of honor.

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.

Tiger Tag Heuer Challenges Achievement Self

While everyone enjoys the rare leisure during the ‘Eleventh’ Golden Week, the Tag Heuer brand ambassadors have not stopped their pursuit of higher goals. Maria Sharapova and Kei Nishikori topped the singles titles at the China Open and Japan Open respectively! At the same time, Cristiano Ronaldo and rally driver Sebastian Ogier continue to show their outstanding qualities under pressure in their fields with dominant data.

  In the China Open final, Sharapova defeated Kvitova 6/4, 2/6, 6/3 to win the championship. During the game, she played many great goals in her career. The tennis star as the Tag Heuer brand ambassador made every effort to achieve the goal, and finally closed for the first time after the Chinese Open. She is under pressure and is at ease. Like Tag Heuer, ‘Make yourself fearless and challenge yourself’ is undoubtedly her motto. Sava, who attended the award ceremony with a Monaco ladies diamond watch and an all-white jersey, returned to the top two in the world this week with this victory.

  Kei Nishikori, a brother of tennis in Asia, has not stopped his pace. After winning the runner-up at the 2014 US Open Tennis Championship and winning the Malaysian Tennis Open, he led the ATP 500 Japan Open. 2014 was like lucky year for Nishikori Kei. In the Tokyo Tennis Open and Raonic’s final, the match was very exciting. Both players had a great chance of winning. The difference is the spirit of never giving up . The Tag Heuer brand ambassador has performed well, is not afraid of challenges, and works hard. He concentrated on his efforts to achieve his goals and eventually won the trophy in Japan. The game was very fierce and exciting! The Tag Heuer Submarine Watch is clearly visible on his wrist, witnessing it all together.

  In the seventh round of La Liga, Real Madrid overcame Athletic Bilbao 5-0. Cristiano Ronaldo staged his 22nd hat-trick in La Liga and expanded his league goals to 13 to lead the scorer list. As the ownership of this year’s Golden Globe Awards is more and more mentioned, I believe that Ronaldo’s name will also appear in the public eye again and again.

  French rally driver Sebastian Ogier won a difficult and exciting race at the WRC Alsace in France last weekend. In the face of several dangerous situations on the track, he is always fearless and tough. With his partner, the car that has been in control from beginning to end is moving towards the championship of the year!
  TAG Heuer’s well-known ‘Don’t Crack Under Pressure’ spirit has been proposed since the early 1990s. This is not a simple slogan, it shows a strong mentality. The slogan of rejuvenation allows the brand to look back on the origin and the path of innovation that 154 years have taken. Please enjoy the official advertising blockbuster performed by many Tag Heuer brand ambassadors, explaining the connotation of ‘Fear no challenge and achieve yourself’.

Baselworld 2018: Such A Specification Is Worth It Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer 02

TAG HEUER launched the new self-made movement with GMT function on the 55th anniversary of the Carrera series. This new work will be an indispensable wrist companion for the younger generation who loves travel and adventure.

In order to commemorate the 55th anniversary of the Carrera series, Tag Heuer superimposed two time functions on the Heuer 02 movement to create the latest work.

From the prototype in 1963 to the new product line Heuer 02 equipped with the modern intelligent module Connected Modular, the TAG HEUER Carrera series has always been synonymous with avant-garde, and officially entered the 55th anniversary in 2018. For TAG HEUER, this is a great time to launch a new chronograph with GMT time function. The new work continues Carrera’s DNA and brand elements, and also returns to the original design of the 3-6-9 chronograph configuration in 1963. The minute and hour counters are set at 3 and 9 o’clock respectively, the small second dial is at 6 o’clock, and the date window is at 4:30. A GMT function is also added. This is the first time TAG Heuer has added this complex mechanism to its own movement.

The two-tone bezel is made of ceramic. At the same time, a striking red hand is used as the time hand of the two places on the dial. With the perspective design of the dial, the overall look is uniquely modern.

The super practical second time zone can be easily adjusted via the crown, and the time is indicated by the red lacquered hands and the GMT 24-hour graduated bezel made of black and blue ceramics. The GMT hand is cleverly placed between the hour and minute hands, and the corresponding GMT scale makes the reading more clear. The Heuer 02 home-made movement, which can be seen from the hollow face plate, is covered in a wide 45 mm stainless steel case and has a water resistance of 100 meters.
