The annual Basel International Jewellery and Watches has been opened, and the special report team in front of the Watch House has begun to work. They will bring you the latest, fastest and most comprehensive watch exhibition reports. Now let’s take a look at the big picture of the latest watch launched by Hamilton at the Baselworld.
At the Basel Show, Hamilton introduced the new Kahki Chrono Worldtimer watch. This new Kahki Chrono Worldtimer watch was designed by Hamilton in collaboration with the famous aerobatic pilot Nicolas Ivanoff, and features a 24 time zone display and automatic daylight saving time adjustment. The 45 mm case is crafted in stainless steel and comes in three different strap versions to choose from.
The new Kahki Chrono Worldtimer watch is especially equipped with an easy-to-read ’12 minutes’ central chronograph function, and the minute countdown scale on the bezel is particularly clear and eye-catching. The first 4 minutes on the main lap (4 minutes for FreeStyle performances during aerobatics, penalties will be penalized for exceeding the time limit). The time scale is decorated with a conspicuous yellow color. There is a convenient fader at 10 o’clock, which can freely switch between timing and world time functions. The watch bezel has a two-way rotation design. In the world time function mode, just press the button at 10 o’clock to calculate the current time in the selected target time zone. Watch time is displayed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Inside the case is a H-41e quartz chronograph movement specially developed for Hamilton. This model is a belt model.
The above is the cutting-edge information of the Hamilton Pavilion of the Basel International Jewellery & Watch Fair 2015 prepared by the staff in front of the Watch House. In the future, we will continue to provide more and more intuitive exhibition reports for everyone, so stay tuned.

February, can you experience the pain of your next birthday? Especially when I watched the date on my watch jump to the 29th in February, the drop that was not in line with reality actually made my mood to the bottom of the day. Obviously today is March 1st, why do you want to ‘deceive’ me that it is February 29th, which makes me happy. It is for this reason that I expect more than anyone to have a perpetual calendar watch. Not only because of how collectible it is. Even more, because it can tell me the date of my birthday accurately and sincerely, February 29 is really February 29. But to be honest, purchasing a perpetual calendar is not easy. After a rough look, basically every major watch brand has launched perpetual calendar styles, not to mention hundreds of models on the market, there are always fifty or sixty. The pricing gap is also very wide, tens of thousands cheaper millions. Faced with so many choices, I really don’t know how to choose. At this time, I immediately sent a message to the teacher for help from Ding Zhi … When buying a watch with a perpetual calendar, what are some points that need special attention? In my opinion, first of all, the perpetual calendar indication is clear and clear at a glance, which is very important, especially the leap year display. For example, many brands have made this display on the back of the watch. I do n’t like it very much. The tuning methods have their own preferences. Some people will like the convenience of the push button. I personally like it. I like the problem. Of course, I will also look at the overall layout. Therefore, I feel that when buying, you should choose the style that suits your reading habits. I silently wrote down the key points of Teacher Ding. Well, yes, the perpetual calendar itself is a very practical traditional function, so I also think that the best layout of the plate is the traditional form with four disks, which is very flat and stable. However, the problem remains unresolved. Because there are not many perpetual calendars of this type on the market. It seems that it is time to ask some real professional questions. In the development of perpetual calendar watches, which brands have played a role in promoting development? Nowadays, almost all big brands are involved in making perpetual calendar watches. Perpetual calendars have passed the age of technical confusion. In many cases, it is not a question of whether the brand can’t do it, but whether it is qualified. Perpetual calendar transitions from pocket watches to watches. Before Audemars Piguet was one of the major manufacturers, before the watch was opened, the perpetual calendar movements were mostly exposed to the outside after opening the back cover, which was poor in water resistance. No leap year display required every day Take it, stop it, you don’t know what day it is. We all know that Audemars Piguet was a movement supplier before, providing complex movements. They are also the first of all brands to put the leap year display on the perpetual calendar watch (Ref. 5516) (1955), giving the perpetual calendar watch As it is now, this is an amazing thing. In terms of technology, qualifications, ranking according to seniority, in my heart, Audemars Piguet is the first. What technological innovations in modern perpetual calendar watches deserve our special attention? Perpetual calendar is now a mature technology, but there are still small improvements. For example, the adjustment method has transitioned to single crown adjustment. In addition, the function combination is also worth paying attention to. For example, Audemars Piguet has added the week number display to the new perpetual calendar watch released in 2015. Not very useful, but if you move to the United States, this feature will tell you what week it is, reminding you to pay attention to your tax filing business. Among the professional and technical answers of Teacher Ding, one thing attracted me very much, ‘Audemars Piguet is the first brand to put leap year display on perpetual calendar watch’. Just for this, I have to look at the perpetual calendar of Audemars Piguet. As a result, I do n’t know, but at first glance, I found that Audemars Piguet’s technical flow could make the perpetual calendar watch so beautiful. In my traditional belief, Audemars Piguet is a standard technical house. What’s more, its technology is not only reflected in the historical merit books, but is constantly updated with the development of the times. With the use of Cal.5134 automatic movements since 2015, Audemars Piguet’s perpetual calendar watches have achieved a qualitative improvement in winding efficiency. The increase in the number of weeks and the increase in moon phase accuracy are also improvements of great practical value. Of course, for my visual animals, what I want to say is that the Audemars Piguet watch is really good. Not only because of its famous Royal Oak shape, or the iconic “Grande Tapisserie” large decorative pattern on the dial, but also because it makes the perpetual calendar watch that is slightly rigid in people’s traditional impression very young and very Sporty. The most important thing is that the sense of dress of the perpetual calendar does not conflict with the sense of movement of Royal Oak. The classic layout of the plate and the shell shape of the sun to the sky have perfectly integrated. In addition, Audemars Piguet controls the size of the entire watch very well and hides it in the sleeve when it is a formal watch. It can be said that it is a ‘cool watch’ that can adapt to various occasions. After determining the general direction of the Audemars Piguet Perpetual Calendar, it is time to decide on the specific style. This is actually a problem. Because there are too many styles of Audemars Piguet. Stainless steel, gold, ceramic, plus a variety of colors of the disk surface, absolutely make me dazzled. ‘Why not choose a limited edition?’ I suddenly flashed the thought in my mind, yes, the limited edition has both personality and good looks, killing two birds with one stone. That’s it, I finally decided to buy Audemars Piguet’s new Royal Oak series perpetual calendar limited watch, green dial, fashion and eye-catching. Of course, before buying, I also consulted Ding Zhixiang’s advice as usual. What do you think of the newly released Royal Oak series perpetual calendar limited edition watch? This Audemars Piguet calendar is already above the classic, adding the popular concept of ‘green is the new black’. Coupled with Royal Oak itself is a personality product that leads the fashion trend, the green face limited edition is also launched by Audemars Piguet to celebrate the many years of partnership with Yuyi Watch: a unique green dial, carefully selected by Audemars Piguet and Yuyi Watch Perfectly highlighting the characteristics of the two brands, which represents the long-term cooperative relationship between the two parties, of course, is of special significance. The yellow central week hand, in contrast to the green dial, feels refreshing, just like the concept of Audemars Piguet and Yuyi Watches daring to innovate. This special edition of Yuyi Watches also comes with a green crocodile leather strap, which is easy to match a variety of different shapes to meet different needs, plus a global limit of 50 pieces, making this commemorative limited edition more collectible. The professional teacher Ding is affirmed, so why hesitate? I know this is a special edition of the collaboration between Audemars Piguet and Hong Kong Yuyi Watches, which is limited to Hong Kong and Macao. The Audemars Piguet store operated by Yuyi Watches is available for sale, so I clicked the following to read the original text to find the sale point, and then I immediately I bought an air ticket to Hong Kong, and I’m going to order this perpetual calendar watch that I like, everyone will wait for me to broadcast live.

A mechanical watch, a long-established object, has developed into a luxury product today. It is not easy. What is more difficult to achieve is innovation and breakthrough. The technology used by many brands today is the rest of the watchmaking predecessors playing hundreds of years ago. Omega is obviously a special case. Some new technologies developed in the past ten years have never appeared in history before.
Zunba with blue dial, don’t have a taste
Omega is now pushing the coaxial escapement, something everyone on earth knows. But what I want to talk to you today is the Zunba released by the brand this year. Zunba’s English name is Globemaster, which is literally translated as the earth’s overlord, and it has the taste of ‘all over the world’. If you want to ‘dominate the world,’ paper tigers can’t do it, they must have some real materials.
Zunba calendar watch
In my opinion, the most powerful aspect of Zunba is anti-magnetic. In life, we need to be ‘fireproof, anti-theft and anti-girlfriends’, but when wearing a watch, the importance of anti-magnetic cannot be overemphasized. Of course, water resistance is also important, but usually the watch does not have much chance of contact with water, and the magnetic field is like an invisible ghost.
Grand Prix Observatory Watch
Previous anti-magnetic watches usually wore a ‘cover’ for the movement. Don’t think about it, it has nothing to do with Durex and Okamoto. This ‘case’ is actually a soft iron inner shell, which isolates the movement from the magnetic field. As a result, the watch is less likely to be magnetized. Some brands of anti-magnetic watches use this idea, the anti-magnetic performance ranges from a few hundred Gauss to 1,000 Gauss.
Brushed and polished case sides and crown engraved with the Omega logo
In other words, if the anti-magnetic performance reaches 1000 Gauss, it is already too strong. However, Omega did not believe this evil, and opened up a new idea of not wearing a ‘suit’. After research and development, it uses anti-magnetic material to build the movement, which improves the anti-magnetic performance by more than ten times, reaching 15,000 Gauss, and completely explodes some of the famous watches around it. The antimagnetic strength is so strong, it may seem strange, but Zunba has indeed done it, and it is worthy of being the ‘earth hegemony’ in this field.
Accurate Chronometer Certification
In my impression, Omega’s coaxial escapement movements are certified by the Swiss official observatory, and it goes without saying that they are accurate. The 8900 series movement used by Zunba can be regarded as a newer, super-antimagnetic version of the 8500 movement. The polishing and modification are exactly the same as the 8500, which is still the style and the taste. But the material of the movement changed quietly like the face of the moon.
Every Zumba Observatory watch has to pass eight rigorous tests
Omega and the Swiss Federal Metrology Institute (METAS) jointly launched certification, including eight strict test standards. These standards are mainly related to anti-magnetic and travel time. Zunba is the first Omega watch to pass this certification, and has won the glorious title of the chronometer. The Master Chronometer on the dial fully illustrates the excellent pedigree of the watch.
Antique constellation watch with ‘pie’ design
Speaking of dials, everyone will feel that the design style of this watch is not the same as the common Omega. It turned out that although Zunba was a new watch, it took a retro route. It draws from the brand’s constellation watches from the 1950s. At that time, the constellation generally adopted the design of ‘paid’, which is commonly known as ‘gossip noodles.’ This dial, in the minds of some old watch fans, enjoys a supreme position. Zunba’s ‘distribution’ will give a modern interpretation of the old classics, allowing people to recall the glorious history while tasting watches.
Eight stars on the Zumba case back
Zumba’s case back is also very attractive. The eight stars that greet you are like eight blinking eyes. They both represent the eight important precision records established by the brand in the 1940s and 1950s, and also represent the eight required to pass the certification Rigorous testing....
