Observe The Watch And Master The Natural Rhythm

There is no doubt that recording time is often not as simple as knowing what time it is. Recording the time accurately is part of the measurement itself. For a long time, human beings have explored nature by continuously improving the accuracy of recording time. It can be said that by grasping time, we can grasp the rhythm of nature.
Observation of celestial phenomena and dialogue with the universe
For a long time, human’s exploration of nature has never stopped, which has almost become a history of the development of human science. Most of human exploration of nature is done through observation data. People record data for a certain period of time, and summarize it, making it an important branch of science. Nowadays, the emergence of some observation watches with measurement functions is obviously a symbol of the continuous development of human civilization.
As early as thousands of years ago, ancient Greeks and Babylonians of Cuba created their own legislation based on their observations of the sun and the sky. Among them, especially the Mesopotamian civilization has achieved the highest achievements. They started observing astronomy as early as 2000 years ago and systematically recorded the data. They summarized the ‘Sharlo cycle’ based on data, that is, an eclipse occurs every 18 years. The ancient Greeks constantly chased the changing movements of the sun and the moon, and could calculate the movement trajectories of the sun, the moon, and even the planets to modify their calendars and even geometry. Everything is now incorporated into the sky watch. In IWC’s Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia watch, the watch designer designed the back of the watch as a pattern of starry sky, which can not only be combined with the perpetual calendar at the edge, but also display the current time of the day, the star time and the time of sunrise and sunset . If you are interested, you can even set a special geographical location according to the stars you want to observe. Hublot’s MP04 ‘Antiochila Watch’ launched in Basel this year directly miniatures the ancient Greek astronomical observation device into the watch. With this watch, while obtaining accurate time, it also shows the calendars calculated by ancient Greeks by observing celestial bodies through the running trajectories of the sun and the moon, including the calendar of the Panhellenic Games (Panhellenic Games) ( It also lists the cities where the games are held), the Egyptian calendar (12 months, 30 days a month, including the next day), the position of the sun in the zodiac constellation, and the moon phases (indicated by gorgeous pointers and windows) The moon’s position in the zodiac within the stellar month), and the year of the star. The back of the watch movement shows the Caripic cycle, Meton cycle, Salo cycle and rotation cycle. There is no doubt that the long data recorded over thousands of years based on continuous human observations has constituted our understanding of nature today.

Precise timing to explore the natural weapon
If time is an important node of measurement data, then time itself is also one of the important data that needs to be measured. Even sometimes, mastering accurate time is all that is measured. This is an example of longitude measurement in the history of human navigation. Can be seen in.
人类 In the history of European medieval sailing, human beings could grasp the latitude but could not accurately grasp the longitude. Because no timing tool can resist the bumps, wetness and wind and waves on the ocean. In fact, the timing tools that could be used while sailing were always the most cutting-edge timing technology of the time. British self-taught watchmaker John Harrison lasted 29 years and went through the difficult process of building H1, H2, H3 nautical clocks weighing tens of kilograms measuring 1 meter square. In 1759, the diameter was only 13 The H4 navigation clock, which is centimeters and weighs 1.45 kilograms, is not much larger than a pocket watch. During the 81-day stormy voyage to Jamaica, only a small error of 5 seconds (the average daily error is only 0.06 seconds, and the travel time accuracy is more accurate than modern quartz watches). The duplicate version of the K1 sailing clock has a daily error of no more than 1 second during the British ship’s expedition to Antarctica, where the natural environment is harsh.) With this accurate time measurement, the longitude error determined by the astrology is only 5 kilometers, which has achieved human history. Unparalleled unity of time and space. The precision of this chronological time, even taking into account the centrifugal force generated when the ship is turning and the recoil force variable when the artillery is firing, this has also become the beginning of chronological precise timing. Nowadays, many watch brands have improved the accuracy of their travel time to a level that can be used as a marine clock to measure longitude. At the same time, like Montblanc’s new standard analog marine chronograph this year, it not only pays tribute to the traditional large standard time pendulum clock in the design of the dial, but also joins the two places between the ports to make the old The observation tool has become a plaything on the wrist today.

Glashütte Julias Asman 1911 Watch
腕表 This watch is named after the watch, in commemoration of the watch made by watchmaker Julias Asman and the outstanding achievement of Amundsen’s arrival in Antarctica. And polar exploration has always been one of the biggest tests for watches. This watch features a 100-14 self-winding movement. The back of the case is engraved with a limited edition number (01/25), and the anti-glare sapphire crystal is engraved with the date of Amundsen’s arrival in the South Pole and its centennial anniversary. The date of the day-December 14, 1911 ~ December 14, 2011.

Montblanc Villeret 1858 Series Marine Chronograph
This is a watch specially designed for sailing. The dial adopts the standard hand arrangement like the traditional large standard time pendulum clock. Centered minute hand, independent hour dial at 12 o’clock, and separate small seconds dial. The eight functions of the movement include local time, home time, day and night display, timekeeping, 30-minute timer, small second hand, power reserve and winding reminder.

IWC Portugal Sidérale Scafusia Watch
The transparent sapphire glass case back shows the starry night sky, the apparent orbit of the sun throughout the year, and includes a perpetual calendar, actual days throughout the year, sunrise and sunset times. The star-shaped disc of the watch presents star-studded beauty. The glass disc can actually display 500 ~ 1000 stars. The carefully drawn constellation makes it easy for the wearer to recognize the position, and it is a must for navigators.

Sovereign Sextant Sextant Watch
This watch of Zunzhuang Huang directly placed the sextant on the dial, and its relationship with navigation is self-evident. In fact, the sextant used to be an indispensable tool in sailing, which can ensure that the ship is not lost in the vast sea. Zun Huang’s watch once again stimulated human passion for sailing and exploring nature. The ‘Captain Jack’ Johnny Depp in the movie has publicly worn this watch on many occasions.

Zenith Columbus Tourbillon
In order to directly indicate the design concept of this watch and its respect for navigation, this Zenith Tourbillon watch was simply named Christopher Columbus. The biggest feature of this watch is that it can travel with the same precision as a professional marine clock, which truly solves the problem of the accurate measurement of chronograph tools during navigation that continuously affects its accuracy.

Lange & Söhne, Germany’s most famous watch brand, and then revising it for up to eight years. In this book, he vividly and comprehensively introduced to readers how the Lange watch, born in 1845, has gradually grown into the representative of today’s top German watch brands.

   Later, Lange arranged a lively Lange, European, and German history lesson for media colleagues, telling from the formation of the ‘German First Empire’ or ‘Holy Roman Empire’ to ‘World War I’, ‘World War II’, and then from The entire historical process from the unification of Germany to Lange’s release of the first batch of watch works in October 1994 made us appreciate the tenacity and persistence of the Lange family from a macro perspective. We will tell you about this legendary history in a later column.

Part of European history is explained by Dr. Pan Dan, a doctor of history.

   The history of Lange was explained by Mr. Li Na of the Lange brand. The two people’s vivid explanation seemed to bring us to that turbulent era, let us deeply feel that Lange’s glory today is really hard to come by.

   On December 7, 1845, with 15 young apprentices recruited from the local and nearby impoverished areas, Adolf Lange started his business in Glashütte.

   The 40 years after the birth of the Second Empire was a time of rapid economic development in Germany. The demand for luxury goods at home and abroad pushed Lange to the most successful and glorious period in history. During William II’s 50th anniversary in 1895, the grand joyous celebrations also marked Lange’s most glorious era.

   Before the start of World War I, with the establishment of a new watch factory in Glashütte, mass production, mechanization and the introduction of cheap Swiss movements challenged Lange’s operations. At this moment, Lange’s pocket watches are divided into two types: the ALS quality standard that meets the highest quality requirements, and the DUF standard labeled ‘Made in Germany Watches’ on the dial. The gold case, without the gold sleeve and the engraved splint of the balance wheel, has a different quality from the ALS with five orientation correction, and the DUF has only three orientation correction.

   The demand for special pocket watches for air and water navigation in the early 1940s greatly increased Lange’s production. During this period, Lange’s pocket watches for the Navy and big pilot watches for the Air Force also became current collections. According to records, by the end of the war in 1945, there were approximately 13,500 precision clocks for armament production, and these orders helped Lange weather the war.

   On the last day of World War II, on May 8, 1945, Soviet fighter jets threw bombs at Glashütte to stop German troops retreating to the Czech Republic. The bomb hit Lange’s production plant and destroyed most of the instruments and device. After the war, under the supervision of the Soviet Union, Lange would use documents such as splint watches, pilot watches, navigation precision timepieces, and marine precision ship clocks to make documents and drawings so that the Soviet Union could build production workshops locally.

   During the split between Germany and Germany, Walter Lange settled in Forzheim and continued his career as a watchmaker there. During this period he made some attempts to restore the Lange table. For example, he used to work with his wife and brothers to assemble watches with the “Lange, vorm. Glashütte” logo in his kitchen, and also worked with IWC to make pocket watches with IWC movements, but none of these attempts were successful. The reason is very simple. It is not the real Lange watch if it is separated from its native land.

  Lange finally released the first watches in October 1994, including Lange 1, Saxonia, Arcade and Tourbillon ‘Pour le Mérite’ watches. This marked Lange’s return to the peak of world watchmaking before World War II.

   Knowing the entire history, there will be an indescribable feeling when you look at Lange’s works. These pocket watches are so beautiful. Friends who like Lange must not miss this good book. I will publish the book information below: Wuzhou Communication Publishing House, priced at 1999 yuan (Euro price: 249 Euro), ISBN: 978-7-5085-2609-6.

Vacheron Constantin And Buhler School Of Design Reinterpret The Beauty Of ‘legendary Decoration’

On Tuesday, November 18, 2014, Vacheron Constantin officially announced the establishment of a unique partnership with the Boulle Design Institute in Paris. The news came just right, and it was recalled that the first such agreement in the history of the brand was actually possible. Dating back to the 19th century in cooperation with the Geneva Watch School. The brand name Constantin (literally Vacheron Constantin) is quite similar to constancy (constant), and constancy is also regarded as the brand’s middle name (the middle name contains prominent features), Vacheron Constantin need not worry about being accused of deviation Tradition.

   Brand CEO Juan-Carlos Torres said, ‘Establishing such a partnership is not an option to judge, but a respect for the brand’s history and a commitment to supporting the development of arts and crafts. Vacheron Constantin has a proud tradition in this field. In 1755, founder Jean-Marc Vacheron began to try to transform the design model of the time to make it more beautiful and charming. ‘

   In fact, Vacheron Constantin has already proven its excellence in the field of arts and crafts, and it is difficult to take control of this highland and other brands. However, persisting in learning new things, self-improvement can lead the pace of the times and move forward. Vacheron Constantin also actively welcomes the inspiration of external factors, which is the focus behind the collaboration with the Paris Boulle Design Institute.

   In specific practice, Vacheron Constantin has already assigned dozens of first-year students of applied art and architectural decoration (Diplôme des Métiers d’Art). They will be responsible for the Fabuleux Ornements series of watch dials launched in 2014. Innovate. Art and craftsmanship show women’s elegant beauty, rich ornamental value and eccentric pointer design are the three distinctive features of this series of watches. On the basis of respecting the three inherent characteristics of retention, the focus of innovation work is how to better handle the margins outside the design of eccentric pointers. As with any academic project, students will begin their design work within a strict and standardized framework: the finished dial must not exceed 10,000 euros; the first creative design proposal must be submitted by mid-December.

   The smooth progress of this cooperation requires the cooperation of the Vacheron Constantin Think Tank Research Institute and the brand’s crafts development and management departments. The new project is run by Samira Marquis, director of the Vacheron Constantin Institute. ‘In the process of cooperation with the Buhler School of Design, we will implement the inherent mission of promoting education and inheriting watchmaking,’ she said. ‘Every year, we Will train approximately 30 watchmakers and 10 apprentices in the arts and crafts (chamfering, piercing and gem setting). ‘

   Does this mean that we will soon have the ‘Vacheron Constantin-Büller’ joint signed work? ‘It’s still too early,’ CEO Juan-Carlos Torres said cautiously. ‘The first design proposals will be submitted in a few weeks, and we will decide on the way forward in February 2015 based on the expected goals.’

   At the same time, Vacheron Constantin also commissioned some students to design and manufacture watch display boxes. The four lucky students selected were mainly engaged in BTS product design courses, not arts and crafts. They can submit two to four designs by June 2015. The final winner will be displayed in the window of Vacheron Constantin Paris boutique.
