Summer Wear Watch Strategy Fashionable And Durable Are Indispensable

Unconsciously, the midsummer summer of July came quietly into our lives. When people are immersed in the lush green scenery and enjoy ice beer, swimming and surfing, the hot sun also lets People are distressed. Where the sun shines, there is a scorching sun and a scorching heat, and sweating a little when you walk around a little. For some watch lovers, the watch on the wrist of the opponent is really distressed. Let the editors come up with advice for you, provide some common knowledge about wearing and maintaining watches in summer, so that you can not only bring cool watches in this summer, but also easily protect your loved ones.

  Wear watch material

  The material of a watch worn in summer is very important. Good materials make it convenient, cool to the skin, and beautiful when you wear the watch. In addition to the high temperature in summer, which makes people sweat, the occasional heavy storms in summer also expose the watch to the danger of ‘flood’. Sweat mainly has a greater impact on the watch’s strap and case. When the watch encounters sweat, it may leave green or black marks on the wrist. Due to the different pH values ​​of sweat, the degree of erosion of clocks is also different. After sweating, the belt will adhere to the wrist, making the wearer’s wrist uncomfortable. At the same time, the sweat stains on the belt are extremely difficult to clean, making the strap’s gloss dull, and the long-term wearing will deform and harden the strap. It even broke.

  The watch’s sweat turns green because the watch factory uses copper plating which is easy to gold plating and beautiful in color. However, if the gold plating technology is not handled well, it will cause oxidation of the watch. Nowadays, stainless steel plating technique is widely used in gold plating of watches and clocks, so this situation has rarely been found. Therefore, it is recommended that wearing a watch in summer is best not to choose a belt or silk belt. It is best to buy a stainless steel or K gold watch.

  Based on the quality of the material and the characteristics of the appearance, the first thing that comes to mind is the Rolex Yacht-Master II watch. This watch uses white and marine blue tones, which is full of refreshing summer feeling. Whether it is for marine activities or daily wear, Is your ideal companion. This watch still uses the familiar Oyster case, which is also an important basis for Rolex’s outstanding reputation and excellent performance. The diameter of the 44 mm is moderate, and the models are represented by blue or mother-of-pearl models. Marked bi-directional rotating outer ring made of 18ct yellow gold or 950 platinum. The hour markers and hands coated with luminous material are enlarged to make the surface clear and easy to read in any situation.

  The watch uses a triple-locked winding crown, which is a triple waterproof system designed for diving watches. After the winding crown is screwed on, the oyster case can be completely closed, and its solid protection is comparable to that of a submarine door. The case is also sturdy and sealed, protecting the high-precision permanent magnet from water, sand and pressure. This metal strap is also very distinctive. It was launched in the late 1930s. It consists of three rows of wide, flat links. It is extremely strong. It has always been the most widely used strap in the Oyster series. Different Rolex buckles according to the model. It adopts the 3135 self-winding movement entirely developed by Rolex. The construction of this movement is the same as all oyster movements, and its reliability is unparalleled.

  Sports Watch Raiders

  Diving is one of the first choice sports for many adventurous men this summer, and the diving watch is again sharp this season. Although most watches will have a basic waterproof function, even so, once water enters, the parts inside the watch will oxidize, which will damage its normal function. The general 30-meter water resistance is only for small areas of splashing water such as daily face washing and hand washing. It cannot invade into the water for a long time and deep. Therefore, a suitable diving watch is also one of the essentials for watch lovers in summer. Non-professional players may think that diving does not require a watch. For senior watch lovers, the Omega Ocean Universe 600 meters watch must be invincible in water. Ride in the ocean with you.

  Adhering to Omega’s ocean legend, this watch embodies contemporary fashion and personality.

The black dial features a small seconds dial, a calendar window and a central chronograph hand. The small chronograph dial at 3 o’clock has both 60-minute and 12-hour timekeeping functions. It is more convenient and intuitive to read the time.

  The 45.5 mm stainless steel case is equipped with an orange matte aluminum unidirectional rotating diving bezel. The gorgeous colors are full of vitality, and the breath of life is permeated in the deep blue waters. The watch is equipped with a stainless steel bracelet, which makes it easy for the wearer to clean the watch.

This certified astronomical watch is equipped with an Omega 9300 coaxial movement, and the movement of the movement is clearly visible through the transparent case back.

  Watch Maintenance Guide

  When wearing a watch in summer, the most headaches are high temperature and water (including sweat). Any item under the strong solar radiation and ultraviolet radiation will damage its normal life. An increase in temperature will also affect the accuracy of the watch and may accelerate the aging of external parts, thereby affecting the quality of the watch. Under normal circumstances, 25-28 degrees is better. The temperature in summer is generally around 35 degrees. In this hot steamer, try to avoid exposing your watch to strong sunlight, or choose some good heat resistance. Watch.
  Swiss radar watches continue to lead the development of high-tech materials. The advantages of gloss, high hardness, no rust and discoloration, no staining, and stable chemical properties make ceramic materials a new favorite in the watchmaking industry. Both the case and the strap are used. Ceramic watches made of high-tech ceramic composite materials have good rust resistance and heat resistance, and are not easy to wear, never fade, and do not damage the skin. They are one of the best choices for wearing watches in summer.

  For sweating in summer, you should wipe off the moisture and moisture on the watch with a soft cloth before wearing the watch. A lot of dirt will remain on the edge of the case back and around the crown, which will directly affect the beauty of the watch. , So always take it off during the wearing process. In addition, it is necessary to clean it often. When cleaning, first wipe it with water and then wipe it with a dry cloth. Of course, you can also use some detergent.

  For some other materials of watches, specific problems need to be analyzed, and different cleaning or maintenance methods are used.

Only Rolex Will Rise? No, Iwc Portugal Also Rose …

It is not too late to get to the topic. Brothers who are familiar with the watch market may have discovered that the prices of Portugal’s Portuguese counters started to rise a while ago. Some watches, such as Rolex and Patek Philippe, have risen, and the brothers are not used to it, it is common. Except for Lau and PP, other mainstream brands of watches are generally stable, with few obvious fluctuations, especially the models of volume. IWC Portugal started a while ago, and the market has obviously risen. I think it is a bit magical.

Portuguese meter has always been a popular model of IWC.
Why did Portugal move higher?

   In addition to Law, Europe, IWC should be the most bought watches by brothers. There are two types of comparison tables for international countries. One is a watch with an outsourced universal movement, and the other is a watch with a self-produced movement by IWC. Watches with outsourced general-purpose movements, such as Mark, Portofino Red 60, Portuguese meter, flying meter, etc .; watches with IWC-produced movements, such as Dafei, Portugal 7, Portofino 8th Chain and so on. Therefore, we can see that the entry-level IWC uses an outsourced general-purpose movement, and the higher-end models use the IWC-produced movement.
   So when brothers usually buy watches, a situation is easy to appear. The watches with the 7th and 8th chain movements produced by IWC are relatively high in price, making it slightly more difficult to buy. In addition, the dimensions of the IWC 7th and 8th chain movements are very large, so the calibers of Dafei and Portugal 7 are relatively large, and the watch is relatively thick. Not all brothers can accept it, and the big watch is easier to slap. IWC watches with outsourced general-purpose movements have low public prices and are easy to get started, but three-hand watches like the Mark and Bai Taohong 60, some brothers will find the dial simpler and less complicated. The Portuguese meter is exactly in the middle position, it is not difficult to start, and the size is suitable, the face value is very high, and the sense of high level is strong.

IWC Dafei (above) and IWC Portofino Red 60 (bottom), the price of Dafei is high and the size is large; the board of Botao Red 60 is relatively simple.
   The public price of the IWC Portuguese chronograph with a steel case is more than 50,000 and 56,800, which is exactly in the middle of the high-end self-produced movement IWC (steel watch) and the entry-level universal movement IWC. Although the Portuguese meter has so far used the 79350 chronograph movement, which is an improved general-purpose chronograph movement purchased by IWC (ETA7750 / SW500), the value of the Portuguese meter is very high. There are several types of dials: gold, gold, blue and silver, silver and silver. The three-dimensional time scales have a high sense of high-level. With the 12-minute 30-minute counter and the small 6-minute second dial, the dial is not only very balanced ( No calendar breaks balance), and there is a certain amount of complexity. Plus the size of the Portuguese meter is 40.9 millimeters, let’s say 41 millimeters. It is a small size, and it is very easy to wear. (The other thing I want to say is that IWC is good at adjusting the movement of the universal movement. The little prince my wife usually wears is accurate when leaving.)

IWC Mark 18 flying meter, flying meter and Portuguese meter are similar watches, the flying meter has a strong sense of tool, and the Portuguese meter has a strong sense of luxury.
   Compared with Portuguese meter, it is actually a flying meter. But the flying meter, because it is a flight watch, is relatively large in size, it is 43 mm. Then, because of the sense of tool and movement of the flight watch, the time-marked hands are painted. Of course, the flying meter’s public price is also lower, which is 39500. The sense of luxury and luxury of Portuguese meters is stronger. So there are more people chasing Portuguese schemes.

Portuguese market is getting longer?

   I find that after entering April, the Portuguese meter has started to rise significantly, and it has increased by 2000. All brothers said, ‘Portuguese has gone crazy recently.’ At first I thought it was very abnormal. The Portuguese meter should be the most stable market. Why did it rise? The brothers who often buy watches know that the price of the watch, the public price is ‘dead’, and the actual price is ‘live’. The changes in the actual transaction market are affected by many factors.

IWC is very popular.
   First of all, IWC started to adjust prices a while ago. Brothers who are familiar with IWC should find out that the prices of many watches of IWC have increased. For example, the Portuguese 7 has increased by several thousand dollars, and the public price of Dafei has exceeded 100,000. In addition, I heard that IWC has also increased its prices in foreign countries. I do n’t know if this news is true, but the change in IWC’s public price will definitely affect the actual market prices. Although I can’t say that changes in public prices will affect the secondary market and even the actual transactions in the secondary market 100%, the impact is somewhat.

Steel shell black plate Portuguese meter

   In addition, the Portuguese meter can be said to be the hottest among IWC watches. The demand of the people is very large, and there are many chasing people, more wolves and less meat. IWC watches like Da Fei, but very stable. Because to be honest, the price of Dafei is high, the size is large, and the personality is strong, the market is definitely relatively small, and relatively few people buy it. On the contrary, Da Fei tends to go lower often and leaks. In this fluctuation of the international market, in addition to the Portuguese meter, the other driving force is the Portuguese 7, so the people’s aesthetics and preferences for watches can be seen.
Portugal meter is getting closer to the movement change?
   Raising public prices, tightening discounts, exchange rates, and reducing supply can all cause changes in actual market conditions. This change in the Portuguese meter market also made me think that Portuguese meter should be getting closer and closer to the movement change. From a technical point of view, we can see some changes in the movement of IWC in the recent period. IWC has recently used more and more 69000 series movements.

The new 69000 series movement used in the 150th Anniversary Edition of Portugal has a thorough bottom. Please note that the 150th Anniversary Edition Portuguese dial has lacquered numbers, which is different from the regular three-dimensional characters.
   The 69000 series movement is a new chronograph movement produced by IWC and is used to replace the ETA7750 / SW500 chronograph movement. The advantages of the 69000 series movements produced by IWC compared with the universal movements are the use of column wheels, 46 hours of power, and the winding of IWC woodpeckers. The configuration and luxury are improved (some foreign players believe that the 69000 series movement is 7750 deep) Improved). Someone pointed out that the production capacity of the 69000 series movements is limited, but in recent times, IWC has started to use more and more 69000 movements in the special models of the new engineer’s chronograph (the engineer used 69380). And the brothers all know that the 150th anniversary edition of the Portuguese version of the Portuguese meter launched at the beginning of this year has used the new 69000 movement (specifically 69355) and made a thorough bottom. Although it is a limited edition, the number has reached 4000. And in these two days (April 16th) IWC also launched the 150th anniversary edition of the Portuguese gold meter, also using the new 69355 movement, limited to 250 (the 150th anniversary edition of the Portuguese meter is not three-dimensional, (Different from the regular version, please pay attention to distinguishing brothers). So we can all see that IWC started to change the movement from the limited edition and special edition. The output of the new 69000 series movement is increasing, and it should be used in the regular mass production version soon.

IWC 150th Anniversary Edition Gold Shell Portuguese Meter.
   IWC mainstream models of watches, a major feature is the high value. To be honest, IWC’s face value is so high that I don’t care much about what movement he uses. It doesn’t matter if it is produced or not. In the secondary market, the prices of IWC have always been low, in other words, the value has shrunk. Now, the market price of Portuguese meter has reached the highest point in history. Many brothers still look for Portuguese meter. I think this has a lot to do with the high value of IWC.
   P.S. Finally add a little prince of my wife.

Longines Master Series Unique Moon Phase Watch

In the watch family, no watch can match the romance of the moon phase. Through the halo of the moon on the wrist, watching the changes brought about by the lack of moon phases, as if you can feel the mystery exclusive to the moon, it is the most romantic and poetic expression of time. For those who are looking for romance, I believe that they will fall in love with the moon phase watch Longines Master Series L2.673.4.78.3 men’s mechanical watch.

 Moon Phase Watch Longines Master Series L2.673.4.78.3 Men’s mechanical watch is a personalized watch with moon phase display function. The moon phase dial on the watch can grasp the changes of the moon’s gloominess. The characteristics of young friends who like moon phases are: the pursuit of romance, imagination and creativity, a dreamy temperament, a statement of personality: the most romantic way to express time.
 For a person who is involved in a wide range of issues, wearing a watch with a moon phase function and mastering the changes of the moon’s gloomy days will undoubtedly add endless topicality. Not to mention the romantic temperament given to the moon by Chinese literati, it is the killer of the moon phase table.

 Equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement L678, which vibrates at 28,800 times per hour, provides a 46-hour power reserve, a silver polished “wheat” dial, 9 black Arabic numerals, blue steel hands, a round steel case, Transparent sapphire crystal case back, wear-resistant sapphire crystal, alligator strap.
 About Moon Phase Table
 Moon phase table design principle: The moon phase function is often placed in a special shape of a semi-circular window, this particular shape includes a semi-circular arc and two small arcs. This elaborate shape, combined with the moon on the moon phase disk, can tell us more accurately the shape of the moon at the beginning or end of a cycle.
 Parts and working principle: The moon phase shows the state of the moon on the moon phase disk according to a period of 29.5 days. This moon phase disk has two moons with 59 teeth on the edge. The moon phase wheel is pushed forward by one tooth every day after being pushed by the transmission wheel. At this time, the changes in the profit and loss of the moon phase can be timely displayed on the dial. The 59-tooth moon phase wheel comes from the moon phase profit and loss every 29.5 days as a cycle average. Since the precise rotation period of the moon is 28 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 2.9 seconds, the error of the moon phase display is about every 33 months. Will reach 24 hours. The case usually has a moon phase adjustment button. The moon phase display is relatively independent of functions such as timing and perpetual calendar.
 Romance may be a word, a look, a smile or a period of time. But for moon phase watches, romance exists at every moment.
